Overview
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 thrilling and often dangerous missions in space...and then their series was canceled!

Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe.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 in this hilarious adventure Jeffrey Lyons (NBC-TV) calls "The funniest, wittiest comedy of the year."

Easter Eggs
Dreamworks Home Entertainment's release of the hilarious space comedy 'Galaxy Quest' contains a number of great additional features.

The most obvious one is 'Omega 13,' accessible through a menu entry on the main menu. It can only be activated once you watched the entire film, and features a nice little clip.

But the disc also contains a number of short interview clips all over the place. They can be found in the cast and crew biographies of Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shaloub, Daryl Mitchell and Sam Rockwell, as well as some of the crew members. At the top of their biography pages you will notice a small reel icon that you can highlight. If you activate it by pressing 'Enter' on your remote control you will have the chance to see some interview clips in which cast members talk about the movie and their colleagues.

The last one is actually more of an error than a hidden feature, but intriguing nonetheless. In the cast and crew biographies you will find a listing for 'Brandon Long.' The peculiar thing about it is that the actor's name is Justin Long - Brandon is actually the name of his character in the film!
