I was excited for the opportunity to watch this movie because anything Star Trek-related always reminds me of my grandma. She came to the states from China when I was born. When I was growing up, I remember that she liked to watch Star Trek. Even though she didn’t know any English, she would “translate” to us (my siblings and me) what was going on in the episodes. Anyhow, my girls have gone through the What’s in the Bible? curriculum from Genesis to Revelation at church, and they really enjoy the Christmas DVD as well. I knew they would like watching the latest from VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer!
About The Movie
Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9 takes Buck Denver on a new adventure into outer space. Buck wants to save the galaxy by sharing God’s love to all of the Milky Way, but for now he is working for the Galactic Mission Board handing out tote bags. He doesn’t have a starship, a crew, or much else. But one day, something changes all that, and he gets to go on a mission into deep space. He is doing everything God wants, but things go wrong! In the end, Buck learns a powerful lesson about trusting God with everything.
Like all of Phil Vischer’s creations, we are able to take away some Biblical truth to add to our faith foundation by the end of the story. It is not only Buck who learns a valuable lesson, but we do too! God doesn’t always want us to do big things for Him, He just wants us! He loves us and has a purpose for each of us, sometimes it involves big things, and other times it involves small things. I’m all for handing out tote bags if anyone has them to hand out. 😉

What the movie is about: The movie is about Buck and his friends going to the planet Tallaris. Buck is trying to save the world. When he gets there, he realizes he was only doing it for himself and not for anyone else.
Like: I like that Buck learned a lesson while he was in space.
Dislike: There wasn’t anything I disliked about the movie.
Recommend: I recommend this to all the kids because everyone will like it.
What I learn: God doesn’t always want everyone to do big things. He just wants to be with us.
Emily (age 6)
What the movie is about: The movie is about Buck learning a lesson. Buck didn’t want to send out tote bags. He wanted to go to space and be helpful – to do big things, not small things like handing out tote bags.
Like: I like that he learned a lesson because it makes him helpful.
Dislike: I didn’t like the aliens capturing Buck’s friends.
Recommend: I recommend this to my cousin Sam because he likes Star Wars.
What I learned: God doesn’t always want everyone to do big things. :p
