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.
Professor Parsafoot manages to repair the Starfire and he and his friends take off from the “Limbo of the Lost” planet. Having rescued Captain Kidd from Dragos’ booby trap, the pirate agrees to join the fight against the alien tyrant. When the Starfire’s navigation system is disabled, the Captain uses his sextant to calculate their location and course and the spaceship arrives at Space Academy just in time to thwart Dragos’ latest attack by his ship’s guidance system, sending his vessel adrift in deep space.
