  • Mutiny in Outer Space has significant plot and character elements in common with Gene Rodenberry's Star Trek. The major plot device of a deadly alien organism imperiling a crew is also seen in the Andromeda Strain as well the Alien franchise. Common characters include the plucky doctor, a vivacious communications officer and a demure yet attractive scientist. Other similarities include action sequences involving crew members running through corridors and near misses with meteors ala Star Trek the Motion Picture. I recommend fans of Trek watch Mutiny in Outer Space with an eye out for other similarities.
