This probably would have been either in the mid to late 70's or early 80's. It might have been a Saturday morning show, and was live action. The only thing I remember about it was one of the space ships in it looked, to me, a little like a flying superhero. The ship itself was, IIRC, very rough on the surface, almost like it might have been carved out of an asteroid or something.

Any suggestions?

  • When you say "like a flying superhero" do you mean that the ship while clearly not humanoid resembled one in some fashion, or could the ship have been some sort of mecha/robot?

  • It wasn't a robot, just resembled a humanoid. Very massive ship.

You're thinking of Jason of Star Command, a low-budget, live-action Saturday morning television program produced between 1978 and 1981. Jason was itself a spin-off of an earlier program named Space Academy, and reused some of the sets, props, and spaceship models.

Jason and the good guys operated from Space Academy, a mobile base built into an asteroid:

The head bad guy was named Dragos. He had a ship called the "Dragonship", which was also built into an asteroid:

Youtube has the first episode of the series. The Dragonship makes an appearance around the 8:36 mark.

  • That was it. Thanks!
