Trivia

This is actually the seventh Star Wreck movie. The first one was made in 1992. It was a crude four-minute animation inspired by the game Star Control. The later episodes grew longer and more sophisticated by every episode. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

[subtitled version]
Commander Dwarf: Fleet reporting: practically all light balls expended.
Info: In that case, approach to twinkler range at full shove power. Our losses should not exceed 68.4 percent.
Commander Dwarf: I guess it's a passable day to die.

Excellent!!
21 August 2005 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

No spoilers here :) A very funny and multi-layer film for the fan of science fiction. Nothing like this has ever been made in Finland, and this is bound to put Finland on the sci-fi -map.

Some of the humor is very Finnish, a lot universal :) The structure of the film is nicely thought through and executed, with an ending that left me wondering if there is to be a sequel :) Considering that the actors excluding two or three if I am correct, were all amateurs, friends and volunteer fans, the movie was very skilfully over-acted and cast to the best possible Star Wreck -style. The actors were all charming and sure to win you over. To be noted that this is the 6th Star Wreck film made.

The effects are excellent, the war scenes actually do work in spite of the comedy nature which is never made cliché or a boring repetition, a pitfall of many parodies. Two thumbs-up for the music as well.

Hard to believe that this wasn't made by professionals.

All in all, a well-made full-length feature film.

Must-see for all sci-fi fans!
