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

If you ever get a chance to see this film, don't miss it. The whole look of this film is itchy & dated, but that's what makes watching this film so much fun! Thank god that special effects have improved greatly over the past 35+ years, but considering what they had to work with, I think they did a great job. Some of the special effects folks went on to work on numerous films such as Superman, X-Men and The Bride of Chucky. Sadly, I don't think this title was ever available on video... (going ALL the way back to the Beta days.) It WAS available as a 16mm rental back in the early 70's. Warner Bros or Seven Arts handled the US distribution, so it's most likely in Ted Turner's holdings. It would be nice to see this on TCM someday.
