QUARK (1976) Pilot Publicity Stills

Here's a selection of press stills for the pilot episode of Buck Henry's sci-fi spoof, Quark, which originally aired on May 7, 1977. The series (all seven episodes of it) followed that fall, with one major cast change: ship's science officer O.B. Mudd, played by Douglas Fowley as an absent-minded, and possibly a little mad, scientist, was replaced by Richard Kelton as Ficus, the logical, unemotional Vegeton.

Interestingly, Cyb and Tricia Barnstable were credited as "Cibbie and Trisha Barnett" in the pilot.


  1. In reading the first one you really get the sense that Quark is a half-hour space comedy, don't you?

  2. SPACEBALLS always made me think back to QUARK.


  3. Actually I missed that. I was too busy checking out the twins.
