Space Cases

Trivia: The series was created by Science Fiction writer Peter David and actor/writer Bill Mumy, who starred in the original "Lost in Space" series in addition to other science-fiction and fantasy series. They wanted to create a science-fiction series for kids, and gave guest-roles to other well-known science fiction actors including Mark Hamill and George Takei as a nod to the genre. Somewhat coincidentally, one of the lead actors in season one, Jewel Staite, subsequently went on to become a science fiction star in her own right... five years after "Space Cases" ended, she went on to co-star in the beloved cult-hit series "Firefly" and its movie spin-off "Serenity" as the spunky mechanic Kaylee.


Trivia: Famous (and infamous) science fiction writer Harlan Ellison actually wrote and narrated the opening voice-over that sometimes occurs before episodes.
