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 escapes from Dragos’ jailers and rescues Nicole and the Professor from the dangerous alien creature using the freezing rod he took from one of the guards. Dragos commences another attack on the Space Academy by disrupting their guidance systems, sending them hurtling towards a space typhoon. Jason and his friends rescue Peepo the robot, steal a spaceship and race towards the Academy, not realising Dragos has reprogrammed the robot to respond to his commands.
