On the way down to the planet to get the beryllium sphere, Guy says no one knows his last name. Up till this point in the film his last name isn't mentioned. On the planet when hatching their plan, Jason calls him "Fleegman" and tells him to set up a perimeter. During "episode 81" of the original Galaxy Quest TV show, Guy Fleegman played "Crewman #6", as he states to Nesmith before departing the shuttle on the surface. In the Galaxy Quest movie, Sam Rockwell plays the character "Guy Fleegman", and is called "Guy" by the other Galaxy Quest TV show actors during the movie. It would not be unusual for Nesmith to know Guy's last name, and refer to him by that name, even if he didn't recall it earlier. Commander Taggart likely addressed him simply as "Crewman", or not at all, as it was scripted for the TV show. For most of the Galaxy Quest movie, the Galaxy Quest TV show actors refer to one another by their actual (movie) names, rather than their TV show character names. Guy Fleegman's original TV show character not only did not have a last name, he didn't have a first. This would not be uncommon for such a production, as lesser characters in similar productions are simply addressed by their title, followed by a last name, or simply their title, such as "Crewman". This is true for many productions, especially when that "crewman" is "killed" during an episode, as Fleegman says occurred "before the first commercial in episode 81" of the Galaxy Quest TV show. Additionally, "Guy Fleegman" is introduced as "Security Chief 'Roc' Ingersol", during the Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues credits.
