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.
Jason, Nicole and Dr. Parsafoot are captured by Captain Kidd, who explains that they have landed on a planet trapped in time by Dragos. Jason tricks the Captain into taking his pocket robot, Wiki, then manages to pick the lock securing the stocks imprisoning his friends with a splinter. Jason needs the gold and silver in the Captain’s chest to repair the engines on his spacecraft and follows Wiki’s homing beacon to the cave where treasure is hidden.
