It is NOT a parody - it's an hommage
I really do wish people would stop calling this a parody. Galaxy Quest is a parody. This show takes Star Trek (esp. TNG) framework and makes it a bit more human. The characters aren't perfect, they do dumb stuff, they make fart jokes, the whole show is less operatic/Shakespearean in tone.
Is it as amazing as the fan boys say?? No, but overall, it's really good. I'm a fan of the original show (I even had one of those toy phasers that shot plastic discs!), loved ST:TNG and Deep Space 9, so it's nice to see a world similar to that back on TV.
There's good characters, 90% of the time really good writing and story lines. Overall the show looks really good and the music is fantastic. I hope that Fox renews it, as it's nice to have a good space show to watch. And I like that the overall tone is light and hopeful, we need that right now.
