An insubordinate space captain investigates an apparently deserted but unstable planet after being drawn there by a mysterious gravitational force. He and his expedition discover the remnants of the once dominant civilization living on a subsistence level in caves. Long ago their advanced society had become so complacent that they built a super-computer to run and maintain the machines that supported their indolent, self-indulgent lifestyle. After the machines were destroyed by a meteor shower, the inhabitants found themselves without the knowledge to rebuild them, completely subservient to the computer whose megalomania was now unchallenged. The cruel cyber-despot reveals that it arranged for ship's landing because it needs the skills of the Earthlings to make critical repairs in its damaged circuitry. When the computer announces future plans for the conquest of the Universe, the captain and his crew know it is time to act. Written by

Great if you want a boost: Others CAN do worse than I
I have a collection of particularly ghastly sci fi thrillers. This is one of them. I couldn't sleep a few nights ago so I've now seen it.
I thank IMDb. Frankly, I was trying to figure out in which language this was originally done. It was apparently Italian. Why does that not surprise me? One must remember that this was completed over a decade after 2001: A Space Odyssey, two decades after the "Star Trek" series. So one might have expected something a bit better. Well, I think they tried to incorporate a few themes from 2001 and Star Trek. But they did so SO badly it's clearly worth watching.
The overall theme I think is that machines can take over. Okay. Well, I think... Add this to your collection of bad films for long night. But, heaven forbid, don't try to take it seriously!
