* It's mentioned several times how useless Gwen's character's purpose on the show ([[spoiler: to talk to/repeat the computer]]) is. However, having the computer programmed to recognize and respond to only one voice on the ship would ensure that no accidental commands are followed, especially when things got chaotic on the bridge (i.e. during the flight through the minefield or the final battle between the Protector and Sarris).

* Of course Gwen's character was just for fanservice, but why, in the real world, does her outfit fall to ribbons, revealing her shoulders and breasts? As mentioned elsewhere, the Thermians copied the show down to the most minute detail and have plenty of evidence that Lt. Madison's uniform is of a shoddy construction (especially in the upper-body area) compared to her male counterparts'.

* Mathesar is horrified to find out that his heroes have lied to him and the Thermians about the show's true nature, but after the climax is apparently of a mind that they were actually lying to Sarris about being actors. He now thinks lying is something that can occasionally be used for good, but doesn't understand that Jason's white lies (made when he thought everything was fine) led to cataclysmic consequences anyway. He definitely doesn't seem to get that any benefits of Jason's deceit were entirely accidental.

* It's implied the thermians tested the teleporter unsuccessfully, since it appears to only function for the species for which it is programmed (humans). Given what happened to the pig-lizard, there is the distinct possibility that at least one unfortunate thermian [[TeleporterAccident suffered the same fate]].
** On second thought, if they ''had'' tried it on their own people (or even a non-sentient species from their own planet, like animal testing on Earth), Teb could have explained to Kwan at least roughly what would happen if a non-human was teleported ([[TooMuchInformation not that it would help with Kwan's anxiety at all]]). Since even they seem to be in the dark, it's more likely they just built it and never tested it, just like the Omega 13.

to:

* The intro to the [[spoiler: rebooted Galaxy Quest show]] is much less action-y than the original, showing the crew doing day-to-day activities on the ship and almost coming across as a {{Reconstruction}}. The cast is taking their roles much more seriously because if the thermians read them as "historical documents," some other species might do the same (and of course, [[spoiler: the thermians are still watching somewhere out there, too]]).

* The Omega-13 is on the ship, but nobody knows what it does, because the show was canceled too early. The Thermians themselves aren't certain, building it exactly as they could without any certainty as to its purpose, only that it could be used by Sarris for great evil. Sarris doesn't know, but wants it because the Thermians are willing to die to keep it from him. Cast and crew don't know. How is it, then, that it works exactly as a fan describes in his own conjecture? [[spoiler: Nesmith initially believes the Thermians are doing an exceptionally well-done fanvid. He's impressed, but not surprised -- he's seen it before, if not done this well. The Thermians can't tell reality from fiction even on obvious sets, like Gilligan's Island. The fan who described the Omega-13's function wasn't right because he had better insight into the show, since the Thermians took everything at face value. He was right because the Thermians watched fanvids, believed them a continuation of the original "historical document" due to fans' attention to detail, and followed the designs of the fans.]] Or else they thought along the same lines as the human fans: the Omega Thirteen is either a [[spoiler: [[DoomsdayDevice bomb that destroys the entire universe in thirteen seconds]]]] or a [[spoiler: [[TimeMachine thirteen-second time jump to the past]].]] And since [[spoiler: the universe isn't destroyed]], it must be the second option.
