Factual error: Laredo drives the ship out of the starship docking station and scrapes the main hull on the walls. This would not be possible without either scraping the wings first, as they are much wider than the main ship, or turning nearly sideways, which they clearly don't.
With some practice, the actor playing the ship's pilot becomes an expert pilot and destroys Sarris's ship by dragging magnetic mines onto it. Sarris beams over in disguise to kill the crew, but the Captain uses the Omega 13 (a device which rewinds time by 13 seconds) to undo the deaths and attack Sarris while he is still in disguise. The ship crash-lands in the Galaxy Quest convention centre, where the crew get out; Sarriss also gets out, is mistaken for an alien in costume, and killed by a phaser blast. A new series of Galaxy Quest is announced in which the "red shirt" actor plays the Head of Security and his Thermian girlfriend also gets a part.
Guy Fleegman: I'm not even supposed to be here! I'm just "Crewman Number Six"! I'm expendable! I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is! I've gotta get outta here!
Question: In the film's trailer, I saw several scenes and special effects that were not in the final cut. Does anyone know about these shots? I am assuming they were cut close to the films release to cut back on time.
