By Grabthar’s Hammer – Galaxy Quest Deluxe DVD Edition
On May 12th, the same day when all the Star Trek TOS films get rereleased on Blu-ray (and the ‘Genesis Trilogy’ gets released on Blu-ray and DVD), Paramount are releasing another space film on DVD: The Galaxy Quest Deluxe Edition. The 1999 comedy Galaxy Quest is a loving parody of Star Trek films and fandom, and some consider it to be ‘the best Trek film of the last decade.’
Here is the official synopsis:
For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA protector – “Commander Peter Quincy Taggart” (Tim Allen), “Lt. Tawny Madison (Sigourney Weaver) and “Dr.Lazarus” (Alan Rickman) – set off on a thrilling and often dangerous mission in space…and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for “historical documents” and beam up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives.
The special features included are:
- Historical Documents: The Story of Galaxy Quest
- Never Give Up. Never Surrender: The Intrepid Crew of the NSEA Protector Featurette
- By Grabthar’s Hammer, What Amazing Effects Featurette
- Alien School – Creating the Thermian Race Featurette
- Actors in Space Featurette
- Sigourney Weaver Raps Featurette
- Thermian Audio Track
- Deleted Scenes (Used on 2000 release)
- Theatrical Trailer (Used on 2000 release)
And here is the box art:
The Galaxy Quest Deluxe Edition DVD comes out on May 12th and is available for pre-order at Amazon (currently at $13.49).
