Best Characters in Flight of the NavigatorFlight of the Navigator is a 1986 Disney film about a boy who is transported by an alien spaceship 8 years into a future where everything has aged except him.
David Freemen is twelve years old, and lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. David befriends a computer named Max, his captor who takes him to 1986 (he lives in 1978). David is kind-hearted and brave, and takes on the role of "The Navigator". His family is Jeff Freeman (brother) and Bill and Helen Freeman (parents). David also befriends a young NASA intern, Carolyn McAdams. David is portrayed by Joey Cramer.
Joey Cramer overacted, but the character's still awesome
Max is the wisecracking, robotic commander, an alien from the planet Phaelon. Max is extremely intelligent and programmed to speak thousands of languages. Max is taken for study by NASA, and needs the assistance of a twelve-year-old boy to escape and receive star charts programmed into the boy (David). Max is equipped with a light-speed spacecraft, and enjoys new specimens. Max is voiced by Paul Reubens.
The visuals during the flight scenes used to awe me as a kid
I have a crush on him!
Carolyn is a young NASA intern who enjoys chatting and a band called Twisted Sister. Carolyn befriends David Freeman- and helps him escape NASA after Faraday tries to keep him longer than promised. Her job is to operate R.A.L.F. Carolyn is portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
I speculate this is the girl David crushed on in the previous timeline
Jeff is David's brother- a bratty eight-year-old in 1978, but quite a decent sixteen-year-old (with very 80s' hair) in 1986. Jeff is portrayed by Matt Alder.
"Well well, it's my little big brother!"
Veronica Cartwright delivers yet again
David's mother. Portrayed by Veronica Carthwright.
David's father. Portrayed by Cliff De Young.
A really awesome dad
Dr. Faraday is the "head honcho" of NASa. He's sneaky and dishonest. Faraday does not treat the NASA scientists with respect, in my opinion. Dr. Faraday is portrayed by Howard Hesseman.
The main antagonist of film
The girl David crushes on
He is a little alien creature that Max lets David keep. (He's so adorable. )
His name stands for Robotic Assistant Laboror Facilitator. It is Carolyn McAdams's job to operate him. He's a NASA robot.
A scientist working for the villain
The detective at the police station who helps David locate his family members.
