Overview
Set on a Sanitation Patrol Cruiser in the year 2222, RICHARD BENJAMIN (WESTWORLD) stars as Commander Adam Quark, who longs for a more adventurous assignment than picking up space junk! His spacey crew includes the Vegeton science officer Ficus (RICHARD KELTON), identically-cloned twin engineers Betty I (TRICIA BARNSTABLE) and Betty II (CYB BARNSTABLE), the cowardly robot Andy (BOBBY PORTER), and first mate Gene/Jean (TIMOTHY THOMERSON), a half-man/half-woman "transmute." Orders come from Otto Palindrome (CONRAD JANIS, TV's "MORK & MINDY"), keeper of top-secret weapon "The Source," and his boss "The Head" (ALAN CAILLOU), whose floating noggin appears on a video screen. As smart and funny today as when it first aired, QUARK: THE COMPLETE SERIES includes all eight episodes of this hilarious comedy, including the series pilot!
