Galaxy Quest is the story of the stars of a 1970’s science fiction television show and the cast who are now working the convention circuit and living through their re-runs.  At a convention, a group approaches Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen) telling him they need his help and ask him to accompany them to negotiate a peace treaty.  Thinking they are just fans of the show, he accepts the job and is transported to their spacecraft.  Unbeknownst to Jason he thinks he is in a basement doing an acting job and when the negotiation takes place, he orders an attack on Sarris’ ship.  Thinking the job is done, he asks to go back home when he discovers he is actually on an alien spacecraft as he gets transported back to Earth.  The aliens come back to Earth and tell Jason that the attack was unsuccessful and that Sarris is going to destroy their people.  Jason recruits his other cast mates to go back to the ship to help in their quest to overcome the oppressive regime in their solar system.

Armageddon is the story of Harry S. Stamper (Bruce Willis), a blue-collar deep-sea oil driller who is recruited by NASA to assist space on a mission to try to save the world from an asteroid on a collision course for Earth. Harry accepts the mission but only if he is able to bring his crew with him because they are the best drillers in the world. NASA begrudgingly accepts Harry’s terms, however, Harry’s crew does not fit the elite NASA astronaut profile.  Harry’s crew is comprised of A.J. Frost (Ben Affleck), Rockhound (Steve Buscemi), Max Lennert, Charles ‘Chick’ Chapel (Will Patton), Bear (Michael Clarke Duncan), Freddie Noonan and Oscar Choi (Owen Wilson).

The mission: Send two crews into outer space to intercept the asteroid, drill 2 deep-core holes in the asteroid, deliver a nuclear bomb to the deepest point, exit the asteroid and remotely detonate the nuclear warhead cleaving the asteroid into two pieces that will miss colliding with the Earth if the mission is competed before the asteroid crosses a distance threshold.

Harry splits his crew in half and A.J., Bear, Oscar and Noonan board the X-71 Space Shuttle orbiter Freedom and Harry leads the other crew who board X-71 Space Shuttle orbiter Independence.
