Captain Benson (Harvey Keitel) failed his psych test and kills his replacement to travel to Saturn 3 station. The Experimental Food Research Station has only scientists couple Alex (Farrah Fawcett) and Adam (Kirk Douglas) and their dog Sally. Alex has never been to earth. Bension brings with him the DemiGod series robot Hector to replace one of the scientists. He becomes obsessed with Alex and transfers his insanity as he programs Hector directly linked to his brain. Adam is weary of Bension and would rather get rid of him. Neither Benson nor Hector can contain their homicidal tendency.
I have never seen Harvey Keitel so stiff. He's trying to be menacing. Since he's Harvey Keitel, he easily achieves that. He definitely has creepy. However he could have been better. (I read the trivia says he was dubbed... that would account for the stiffness.) Kirk Douglas is so old compared to Farrah Fawcett. He's not a very likable character. This has a real cheesy 70s vibe to it. Their home furniture looks completely dated like a 70s space movie.
The robot also look very dated. The big problem for it is that it moves so slowly. Also the design is slap together without any artistic flair. A giant robot as an idea is interesting. The execution is lacking. Also it's hard to build up tension. The action is shot poorly. The special effects look bad. The base looks the same no matter where they go. The whole thing reminds me what bad sci-fi used to look like.
