Danielle von Zerneck,
The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father's legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful, time-traveling Romulan creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time.
In the far future water is the most valuable substance. Two space pirates are captured, sold to a princess, and recruited to help her find her father who disappeared when he found information dangerous to the rulers. A real Space Opera with sword fights, explosions, fighting robots, monsters, bar fights and time warps. Written by

Seriously fun to watch though it is a little hokey. This is a fantastic movie when you're in the mood for a good giggle. The quality of the cinematography is dated but it is really quite good for the time. There are a few rough plot points and a few loose ends they leave untied but nothing serious enough to hurt the movie any. Keeps you on your toes, and though the ending is obvious it's got some real good twists on the way. Ice pirates lacks little in the emotional spectrum though it can be a little hard to get worked up while the main character is wearing a frilly shirt tied at his waist. Anjelica Huston is very fun to watch and each of her costumes made me want to steal her for my own. There are lots of familiar faces, including one for another low budget film, Caveman (John Matuszak).
