Storyline

A space salvage expert and his partner become involved with a group of criminals intent on hijacking a small asteroid made of sapphire and crashing it into the moon for later recovery. The only place that they can bring the asteroid down without drawing attention to themselves is a far side mining claim. But first they must dispose of the miner. Little known to them, however, is the fact that the miners sister has hired the same salvage team to help her locate her missing brother. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

A unique SiFi movie
29 June 2002 | by (Arlington Heights, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

The storyline was a realistic tale about mining on the moon. Why else would people go there and live long-term?

The things I look for in a SiFi movie are unique concepts not presented by other films. This movie is filled with unique concepts. My favorite part in this film is the bit where James Olson and Catherina Von Schell travel across the moon surface by bug (moon car) to investigate what happened at a remote mine. During the trip, cold from the dark, heat from the sun, and worry about loosing environmantal systems were realistic. Also other unique items included a moon city with periodic shuttle flights from Earth, moon bar with dancers for entertainment, quick trips into space in a lunner lander space ferry, gun fights in space, and ultimatelly attempting to fly an asteroid made of sapphire to the moon surface where it could be mined. In 1969 there was limited technology available to implement special effects and the technical details of this space western plot of May 9 2021. The calculator (box) was adding machine like, and ship controls were simplistic.

It would be interesting to see plot enhanced with new technology.
