Jason of Star Command is a 1978-1981 live action television series by Filmation.
The series revolved around the exploits of space adventurer Jason (Craig Littler) and his colleagues, including Professor E.J. Parsafoot (Charlie Dell) and the pocket robot “Wiki” (formally W1K1).
The series also starred Sid Haig as the evil Dragos, and, in the first season, James Doohan. Jason was inspired by Filmation’s 1977 live-action show Space Academy, and used the same robot, Peepo.
When Canarvin’s clone manages to escape and disable the Academy’s shields, Dragos orders an all-out attack, which causes the ship to hurtle out of control towards a star. Jason transforms a furry, speechless creature into its true shape – a lovely princess and the two manage to escape from Dragos’ cells to a tiny planetoid that begins to disintegrate from the force of the Dragos’ attack on the Academy.
