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.
While trapped on an asteroid, Nicole and Jason drive off an alien creature that attacked Princess Allegra. Dr. Parsafoot and Wiki manage to sneak a Starfire spaceship out of the Space Academy and rescue the three heroes, but Dragos and his minions manage to track their craft. Jason orders Allegra to take use the mini-Cat module to report their position to Commander Canarvin. Just after she escapes Dragos forces Jason’s ship onto the surface of “The Planet of the Lost”.
