Trivia

This movie and it's sequel Fugitive Alien II was critiqued my Mystery Science Theatre 3000. It's known for the song parody "He Tried To Kill Me With a Forklift." See more »

Goofs

No apparent attempt was made to show text appropriate to a futuristic space mission on the Bacchus-3 computer screens; the screen shots are obviously from a 1970s era business computer. Some shots show startup or system status screens, while others show company addresses in Utah and California. See more »

Quotes

Ken: What did I do to deserve this?
Captain Joe: We don't deserve half the things we get.
[laughs maniacally, then abruptly stops]
Captain Joe: You're stuck here!

Wow, yet another Cheap rip-off from Japan, when will they stop? This one concerns the title character on a space ship, then there's a fork lift, and it turns into one big mess. Almost nothing makes much sense, which can probably be linked to the fact that it's just a bunch of episodes from a bad Japanese TV show glued together. Oh sure, everyone on MST3K had a good time with it, but that still doesn't totally make up for this film's existence. Don't watch without Joel and the 'bots.
