Space Academy

Show Summary

Young cadets explore the universe in the year 3732 under the watchful eye of 300-year-old Commander Gampu. They travel on Space Academy, a self-propelled, man-made planetoid. The main characters of the show formed Blue Team, one of the premier teams in the Academy. Its members included:

- Captain Chris Gentry - Laura Gentry, Chris' younger sister - Tee Gar Soom, a science cadet from a race with extraordinary strength - Paul Jerome - Adrian, a science cadet that Chris was attracted to - Loki, a small boy found alone on a doomed planet, who has a habit of stowing away on missions - Peepo, a small, thinking robot

This was the second live-action children's show from Filmation, after Ark II the previous season. The Seeker spacecraft were partly modeled after the Ark.

The following season, the sets were re-used for a spin-off show, Jason of Star Command. Set in a secret section of the Academy, Star Command had a completely different cast of characters and was more action-oriented.moreless

  • Pamelyn Ferdin doaage weekly blended with good science fiction on Saturday morning

    9.5
    great true science fiction, and on a Saturday morning kiddy show? What a concept, but then it had worked in other shows of roughly the same era even like Ark II. The characters were all well written and thought out at the time of their conception by the writer(s) of the show, and then following down to the casting.. the costuming..... unlike the orignal Star Trek they kept the uniforms practical and convincing, without trying to get viewers to tune in simply to catch glimpses of Pamelyn Ferdin's character in a skimpy minidress, and some sci-fi boots. Everything about this show worked as it should have, and I am proud to say that I am the owner of the series on dvd... so that I may watch it whenever I choose.moreless
