Galaxy Quest favourite Tim Allen says that the sequel's script is "fabulous", even though there's no current plan to bring it to life.

The original sci-fi comedy (now a solid cult classic) was released back in 1999, but chatter about a follow-up has never dimmed amongst its fanbase.

In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, the Commander Peter Quincy Taggart star opened up about how complications behind the scenes have pumped the brakes on a Galaxy Quest 2.

"It's a fabulous script, but it had a hiccup because the wonderful Alan Rickman passed. So it all got very sad and dark because [the script] was all about [Lazrus, played by the late actor] and Taggart. It was all about their story.

"It doesn't mean they can't reboot the idea, and the underlying story was hysterical and fun," he pointed out.

"We talk about it all the time. There is constantly a little flicker of a butane torch that we could reboot it with. Without giving too much away, a member of Alan's Galaxy Quest family could step in and the idea would still work."

According to Allen, the sequel's screenplay features time dilation within light-speed space travel.

"[The sequel] could happen now or in five years and it doesn't matter at all because when you travel at light speed, when you come back it can be like only 20 minutes, but 20 years have passed, right?" he shared.

"That part is wonderful for the sci-fi freak in me. But right now it's in a holding pattern."
