Captain  Helix

Captain Helix

Space Force file: fictional character, though try telling that to Commander Henderson.


Hero of telescreenovision programme 'Captain Helix', also appeared in cameo roles in spin-off programmes of varying quality including 'The Claw of Thanatos' and 'Robot's Happy Gang'.

Character Assessment

With his simple values of truth and justice combining to make 'trustice', Helix has provided lifelong comfort viewing to Commander Henderson, who watches an average of 4.71 episodes per week.

Henderson gets very touchy when the Helix programme is dismissed as "just a a kid's show", Henderson's preferred term being "action-adventure-entertainment with an adult twist."

Recommended Action

The whereabouts of Gareth Stannis, the actor who played Captain Helix, are unknown.
