By the time 1978 rolled around I was pretty much a full on sci-fi fan. Having seen Star Wars at the drive-in, and Star Trek on TV, I could watch anything sci-fi that came out. Filmation’s Jason Of Star Command was exactly the kind of tv series I was looking for.
Jason Of Star Command was a spinoff of the short lived space Academy series from 1977. That series featured Jonathan Harris, best known as Dr. Zachary Smith of Lost in Space.
The first season of Star Command featured James Doohan who played Scotty on Star Trek so I was definitely hooked from the start. Doohan left after the first season due to starring to Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
The series would only last one more season, but it still remains an all time favorite.
