Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest ★★½ 1999 (PG)

An ingratiating goof on “Star Trek” and other cheesy TV shows that draw rabid fans and typecast actors. At a sci-fi convention, the actors from the campy ‘70s TV space series “Galaxy Quest” are mistaken for real space traveling heroes by naive aliens who need them to aid in an intergalactic war and whisk the troupe off to a galaxy far, far away (or thereabouts). Naturally, the “crew” is ill-prepared for their latest mission. Playful acting includes Allen's vain leader Peter Nesmith, blond bosomy babe Gwen DeMarco (Weaver), and cynical Brit, Alexander Dane (Rickman). 104m/ C VHS, DVD . Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Daryl (Chill) Mitchell, Robin Sachs, Enrico Colantoni, Missi Pyle; D: Dean Parisot; W: David Howard, Robert Gordon; C: Jerzy Zielinski; M: David Newman.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
