Lazer Tag Academy

Back in 1986 Lazer Tag was all the range and blowing up big time. Ruby-Spears Productions wanted in on this so created Lazer Tag Academy. Unfortunately the show dropped in September 1986 and basically missed the peak Lazer Tag hype and ended up running for 13 episodes before vanishing from our screens.

The show begins in the year 3010 where we meet Jamie Jaren (voiced by Noelle Harling). Jamie is the Lazer Tag Champion of that era. She travels back in time to 1986 to protect her ancestors, Tom (voiced by Billy Jayne), Beth (voiced by Christina MacGregor) and Nicky (voiced by R.J. Williams) from the evil Draxon Drear (voiced by Booker Bradshaw) and his Skugs.

Drear is a master criminal from the year 2061 who has travelled back in time to destroy Beth because she would eventually create the Starlyte gun and Starsensor (both real-life Lazer Tag products that were in stores at the time) worn by Jamie. These machines enabled Jamie to compete in the Lazer Tag tournaments of her time period, but in the hands of certain individuals, a Starlyte is capable of producing effects that enable the wielder to manipulate matter and energy on a molecular scale and with the aid of the Starsensor, travel through time.
