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.
Thanks to Jason and Canarvin’s timely repairs, the Space Academy barely manages to avoid the galactic typhoon. Jason discovers from the reprogrammed Peepo that Dragos controls all of his minions through a medallion he wears at all times. Jason and Nicole sneak aboard Dragos’ massive space vessel, locate him in his command room and steal his medallion only to discover the Dragos they have confronted is only an energy clone and that they have fallen into a trap.
