Added DiffLines:

* TakeAThirdOption: When seeing that he'd be up against a room full of Sarris' troops, Guy is ready to charge in and make a HeroicSacrifice (despite spending the whole film [[RedShirt being afraid that he'd die to show how serious the situation is]]), rather than let Sarris wipe out the Thermians. Fred, however, points out that maybe Guy is WrongGenreSavvy, and that they have other options. [[spoiler: Fred then teleports the Gorignak from earlier and lets that take care of them.]]

The film's story has been continued sporadically in comic books. There were plans to make a film sequel, but they were cancelled after the death of Creator/AlanRickman, who played Sir Alexander Dane.

* VillainBall: Sarris mostly avoids this, except when he learns that the crew are just actors. In a fit of amusement, he decides to kill everyone in a death trap instead of killing them outright, like a villain on the TV show. It's a mistake he quickly regrets.

** Then there's Jason Nesmith, the star of said cheesy space opera. When the film begins, he's an drunken egotistical {{Jerkass}} who is seen by everyone else as a NiceCharacterMeanActor. But when the gravity of the situation finally dawns on him, Nesmith ascends to become a GuileHero, first by improvising an escape plan and rallying his colleagues into defeating an army of invaders, then navigating a DeathCourse through the bowels of the ship (that he was completely unfamiliar with), and culminating with calling the BigBad's bluff in the face of death and saving the day with an ''unarmed spaceship.''

Released in 2000, ''Galaxy Quest'' is superficially based on a little-known Canadian TV series of the same name, but is really an AffectionateParody of ''Franchise/StarTrek'', which the ''Galaxy Quest'' TV series [[FollowTheLeader closely copied]].

* AnalProbing: The crew believes this to be happening to them after their arrival at the star port, when three of the Thermians approach them in their true forms with probing tools in their tentacle hands.

Gwen seems to want to cover all bases, as it were, since she reacts by taking a firm grip of her breasts.



* YouGetMeCoffee: Laredo is told to practice flying instead of joining the other characters in saving the ship.

* BellisariosMaxim: Used in-universe. At the convention when Brandon confronts Jason with an inconsistency in the ship's design, Jason cuts him off by saying it's just a show, although in that scene it's Jason [[MST3K who really should relax]].

* YouCanAlwaysTellALiar: During the final confrontation between ''The Protector'' and Sarris' ship, Jason notes that he can tell Sarris' cool demeanor to be a put-on because he is sweating.
-->'''Sarris''': If you are counting on me to blink, then you are making a deadly mistake.
-->'''Jason''': It doesn't take a great actor to recognize a bad one. You're sweating!
