Trivia

When a writer from Starlog magazine visited the set in August of 1977, scenes from seven different shows and a reel of stock special effects were in the can, but no full show had been completed. Also, not all of the 15 scripts had been completed, despite that writers had started working on them in February of that year. See more »

Worth Looking At For The Mild Lost In Space Connection
26 April 2006 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Short lived space series starring Jonathan Harris.

In childhood I felt that, in Space Academy, Jonathan Harris was just too unlike his Dr Smith character and I struggled to warm to 1970s Harris...I was a kid stuck in the 1960s!

But it was not all bad news, in childhood, I remember being thrilled by some of the low budget alien planets seen in Space Academy.

I discovered that the "special effects" guy in charge had no effects experience before Space Academy!

Do you also remember Filmation's Ark 11 series? The bus-like vehicle in that series looks like a spacecraft in Space Academy.

Space Academy deserves a DVD rental...mainly for the mild Lost In Space connection and the cool always used "Filmation music cues" that fill the series.
