In 1978, Space Academy was revamped into the successful spin-off serial Jason of Star Command starring Craig Littler as Jason and Sid Haig as the evil space pirate Dragos and it recycled the Space Academy sets and models which became Star Command under the command of Star Trek's James Doohan and the Seekers were "upgraded" into the sleeker Starfire crafts. It was mentioned that Star Command was actually a special secret section of Space Academy although there was never any crossover between the two shows.

The commentary is really great for anyone who is curious about how they did the effects and Especially for any young aspiring filmmakers to get ideas about how to produce a film. And there is a great teaching type of style embedded in the stories.
