Jason of Star Command – Chapters 5 and 6

More thrilling escapes and daring rescues in the next two chapters of Jason of Star Command, though our son is most taken by the cute robot W1K1 and was happiest when it was rescued from the enemy’s tractor beam. Funny how Dragos has technology that lets him and his drone ships locate a tiny robot in the void of space, but apparently the escape pods of the Starfire ship, into which they bundle Rosanne Katon to get her to safety, are “too small” for his sensors.

This is the episode in which Jason, Nicole, and Allegra are attacked by a big six-legged insectoid monster. Early last year, the Space: 1970 blog presented some pretty terrific behind the scenes photos of the model. It’s a really nice bit of stop-motion work, and of course our son just loved it. It gave him a brief startle and then he watched with glee as Jason escaped from it and drove it off.

  1. …though our son is most taken by the cute robot W1K1…
    I wonder how he will react to W1K1 in season two.
