Julie (Yanti Somer), some starfleet cadet or something, is in love with her commander John (Antonio Sabata) - but unfortunately, John is in love with Lois (Malisa Longo), assistant of Professor Carr  (Jacques Herlin) ... and before you know it, both Lois and the professor are abducted by some ridiculously looking alien cyborgs in Doris Day wigs.

And since the professor has just started a chain reaction that will destroy earth in 8 days and he himself is the only one able to stop it, John's spaceship is ordered to take up pursuit - with Julie on board of course, who doesn't see the slightest chance of even being noticed by John under these circumstances.

Upon pursuing the alien spacecraft, John's ship gets into a fight with two other alien ships and has to make an emergency landing on some asteroid - where John and company are confused with the aliens, who regularly come to the asteroid to enslave its populace - but after our heroes save the life of the asteroid's people, their leader Kuba (Aldo Canti aka Nick Jordan) wants to show his eternal gratitude in helping John and men free the professor and Lois from the cyborgs' home planet.

Freeing the professor and Lois is the easy part of the expedition, the hard part is getting back to earth with the aliens in hot pursuit, and then there's the fact that the cyborgs have brainwashed the professor and Lois and now the professor's no longer willing to stop the chain reactiion back on earth - and he and Lois even have to be killed because they are starting to sabotage the ship.

In the end though, the formula to stop the chain reaction can be found even with the professor dead, the cyborgs' spaceship can be fought off, and Julie is able to save John's life and finally making him not only notice her but fall in love with her.


Cheaply done Star Wars-cash-in (watch out for the totally pointless light-saber fights) that has very little going for it: The costumes and sets are rather ridiculous, the actors don't seem to even try to bring anything across, plot and dialogues are abysmal, and special effects are about twenty years behind late 1970's standards. Of course, if you love bad movies just like me, you'll still find some amusing spots in this movie every now and again.


Obviously made back-to-back with Star Odyssey, sharing much of the cast, costumes and sets with that movie.
