** 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 {{Badass}} 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.''

* AscendedFanboy: Brandon the mega nerd is [[CallToAdventure called for help]] by Jason, who is on the ''real'' ship and needs his information ''right now'' to save the day. This involves sending an emergency message to his fellow mega nerds and making a runway for landing.

** At the end of the film, [[spoiler:Laliari, one of the Thermians, joins the cast of the show for the rebooted version; like the other members of her race, she loved the show and now gets to be a part of it]].


Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: In-universe and PlayedForLaughs when Fred and Laliari make out--Laliari's [[AFormYouAreComfortableWith human form]] starts shifting to [[StarfishAliens her real form]], and Fred seems to ''like it''. Guy responds thusly:
-->'''Guy:''' Oh God [[SickAndWrong that's not right!]]

Added DiffLines:

** The bad guy calls the captain, demanding surrender and a powerful device the ship carries. The captain agrees, cuts the comm and plots to ambush the enemy with a surprise attack. Only in ''Film/StarTrekIIWrathOfKhan'', Uhura knew where the "hold" button was.

** Jason tears his shirt just like William Shatner often did (which is {{lampshaded}} by Gwen).

** Jason, before he realizes that everything is real and while he's still hungover, CutsTheKnot with the negotiations with Sarris and simply orders the ship to attack him. While the Thermians freak out at the order, Jason walks off the bridge and asks to be sent home all while the Thermians point out that they would have no chance to win the fight due to being greatly underpowered and outclassed. Jason casually assures him that they'll be fine. Rest assured, the next we see Sarris, his ship is shown to have lost badly because the first officer failed to raise the deflector shield in time to counter Jason's rash order, possibly out of shock of the [[RefugeInAudacity audacity of the whole thing]].

*** Though in fairness, he was seriously hung over during his first visit to the ''Protector''.

* BondVillainStupidity: A classic example. Once Sarris has captured everyone, instead of just shooting them, he orders them to be thrown out of an airlock by two guards, enabling their escape. To be fair, this is after he's discovered they're not real heroes, just a bunch of B-movie actors presumably incapable of mounting a real resistance; after they prove a real threat, he ups his game and shoots them when their guard is down.
