Few science fiction stars have made such a lasting impression as Star Wars lead Mark Hamill, and now the man who played the heroic Jedi from Tatooine takes viewers on a guided tour through sci-fi cinema history with a comprehensive look at the genre that has taken viewers on a run with the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park and lead them into outer space in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Since the dawn of cinema filmmakers have used the magic of special effects to explore the cosmos and expose viewers to wondrous creatures that capture the imagination. In a voyage to explore the genre where literally anything is possible, what better host to have than the man who would bring the dreaded empire of Darth Vader to his knees? Highlights include clips from The Day the Earth Stood Still, Alien, Star Trek, The War of the Worlds, Independence Day, and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.
