TV intros; Jason of Star Command

Metafilter linked to this list of television show intros. This is a tremendous resource for our cultural heritage. For example, I'd forgotten there ever was a show called Jason of Star Command. At a glance it looks like a quick Star Wars ripoff, but if so they were really quick; it debuted in 1978.

In looking this up I checked the show dates for Star Trek too; I hadn't realized that original Trek ended in 1969, the year I was born. That's right, my life was ushered in by the moon landing and the end of Star Trek.

  1. Wow, I remember that show! I think it used some of the same props (like the model space station) as Space Academy. Boy, those were the days!
