Galaxy Quest in Concert to Premiere During San Diego Comic-Con 2019

The cult classic-sci-fi spoof Galaxy Quest in Concert arrives at Jacobs Music Center – Copley Symphony Hall on July 19, just in time for San Diego Comic-Con! Academy Award nominated composer David Newman conducts the San Diego Symphony performing his hilarious, fun-loving and, ultimately heroic score. This concert is part of the popular “Bayside Summer Nights” Season.

For those who don’t know of the film, the stars of a 1970s sci-fi show – now scraping a living through re-runs and sci-fi conventions – are beamed aboard an alien spacecraft. Believing the cast’s heroic on-screen dramas are historical documents of real-life adventures, the band of aliens turn to the ailing celebrities for help in their quest to overcome the oppressive regime in their solar system. Galaxy Quest was directed by Dean Parisot and stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Daryl Mitchell, and Sam Rockwell.

Review: Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues TPB

galaxy quest the journey continuesParodies about the science fiction genre have been around almost as long as the genre itself. Most of the time, these parodies also make fun of the fan base, which actually tend to not only anger them but allow for a negative response to the product. Then there are those times, when they are purely love letters to the genre itself, Paul and Fanboys, are good examples of this, and then there is Galaxy Quest, the 1999 film starring Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver. This film had hints of Star Trek and Farscape, and was a true parody, which simultaneously made fun and celebrated the fan base and the genre itself.

This was a something that had not been seen before, as we had not seen this perfect meshing, not since Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, as this was science fiction, a comedy and a parody. As fans of the movie have asked for a sequel, they finally get one, just within the medium of comics. Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues reintroduces you to the characters of the film, and to the world of Dryth, where there is a civil war going between the Technocracy and the rebel forces, a la Star Wars. Fast forward, years later, and we are re-introduced to Brandon who is fan of the show, and talking to his friend, Adnar, before an alien attempts to abduct him.

In this series, the show gets a second life and the cast is promoting the show at the So Cal Comic Expo.The cast gets called on another mission to save the planet, Dryth, while some aliens from the rebel force double for them at a convention, while Mathazar recreates their ship from the new show, down to the controls, so they can help the Dryth people. Hilarity ensues on both ends, as the aliens struggle to understand humans and human customs while the cast, deal with technical glitches like body swapping and fighting real aliens. The volume ends, with Jason being asked to charter a new mission, which he is not at all happy to do.

The story by Erik Burnham is very much in the flavor of the original movie and one is happy that is an ongoing series. The art by Nacho Arranz, is pretty much standard on this effort, as I would have liked to see these characters resemble their onscreen counterparts more. The team working on this effort definitely understands the influences of the film and what exactly it was aiming for. Overall, a great character study and more than deserving to be called a sequel.
