This post began some heated discussions (recorded somewhere else on the web, and
lost in my other computer) about the real functions of Space Academy and Star

Pederson about this, but the emails were not conclusive. When I can get
them (re) extracted, I'll post what I have.

I remember talking
to friends about this show and someone wondering if Star Command was
a "secret" area of Space Academy, how did the cadets and Commander
Gampu react when
the Star Command guys basically took control of it to move
it or to use the Seeker's hangar bay? The things you wonder about
when you're a kid.
Has anyone else noticed Craig Littler's subsequent career as one of
the pitchmen for Grey Poupon?

Both commanders seem to have complete control of the
station--and its defenses, as well as the sleek Starfires,
which didn't appear until JOSC. Gampu never appeared in
Jason, but when cadets appeared, they were cleary
