Flashback Review: ACKER - Sea Songs

#915 - Flashback Review: Galaxy Quest

Almost a year ago to the day, readers Mickey and Mike called me out for never having seen Galaxy Quest. As a Star Trek fan it seemed only natural that I would have seen a movie that both pokes fun at and honors Gene Roddenberry’s wagon train to the stars. noch 670 Wörter
