En route to Earth's orbiting space station, a spaceship with four men aboard is attacked and they awaken after their spaceship crash lands. One of them, Professor Konrad, determines they have landed on Venus, a planet scientists had believed to be uninhabitable. They are taken prisoner by the inhabitants, all beautiful women, who imprisoned the men and took control of the planet. Their masked Queen, Yllana, has plans to destroy the Earth with their beta disintegrator but there is dissent among them led by the beautiful Talleah. Written by
It is somewhat of a coincidence that the colours of the uniforms of the armed women on Venus (red, blue, gold) match the basic colours of the Star Trek uniforms of the first series. The Star Trek uniforms on the pilot were different - blue, gold, beige (from Wikipedia). See more »
The rays that are fired at and eventually destroy the space station are shown coming from many directions in a nearly 360-degree arc, yet since they're all emanating from the same weapon based at a single location on Venus, the rays should be coming at the station from only one direction.

I saw this film on late night TV as a youth and thought it was the coolest movie I had ever seen. Of course at that time, the coolest movie I'd ever seen was usually the most recent one. But there was something eerie and scary and exciting and fun about QOOS...... the hideous queen with her mask, the statuesque women of Venus, the death ray, the giant spider-beasts..and Zsa Zsa.
Of course, now I see the film for the campy delight it is and was intended. It's so-bad-it's-good and I own a copy of it and watch it when I need a laugh. The lines from the wolfish astronaut is so brutally oafish that I can't believe it was delivered with a straight face.
