Six hilariously-scripted parts, but they run out of laugh material long before the movie ends, and Galaxy Quest must then limp to the closing credits supported by its actual plot, which is stupider than anything Star Trek ever devised.
More frequently than not, however, the screenplay by David Howard and Robert Gordon opts for safe and bland over satiric, leaving us with a movie that's watchable but frustrating since it's so rife with unexplored potential.
