Astro Quest is a 1960's science-fiction TV series.
Astro Quest is highly similar to real-life sci-fi series Star Trek and features similar settings, characters, catch phrases, etc. In A Space Oddity, a fan of Astro Quest (called "questers") named Jonathan Danson screened a preview of an Astro Quest remake titled Astro Quest: Redux at an Astro Quest convention (called the "Whatifitcon"). It was very negatively received by the crowd due to its violent content and realism compared to the original series. The next day, Danson was found dead at a replica of a starship bridge at the convention.
Wendy and Hodges, both questers, were there at the the time of discovery and called in CSI. Throughout the episode, there were hints of a potential romance between them which so far hasn't led anywhere. Hodges even once recited a phrase to her that she would translate into : "We were made for each other."
According to Hodges a time travel trilogy from season 4.
A Dallop ApocalypseEdit
According to Langston, it features a planet where a race of amphibians are the dominant species and worship Peyton Place as a sacred text.
- As mentioned earlier, Astro Quest is obviously heavily based on Star Trek. Like ST, it takes place in the future and features a crew aboard a starship exploring space. It also features a hostile alien race (Klingons in ST, Vellikons in AQ), a fictional language (Klingon in ST, Vellikon in AQ), a doctor with a famous catchphrase (Dr McCoy's "I'm a doctor, not a ___" in ST, Corpsman Scully's "I'm not a ___, I'm a doctor/corpsman, dammit!" in AQ) and environments similar to Star Trek's.
- At the end of the episode, when Wendy translates the Vellikon that Hodges spoke earlier, the written language is actually Star Wars Galactic Basic. The text that shows up in the text box is a substitution translation of the phrase Wendy typed in, except the last character is an "s" instead of a "-"
