The Lunar Base Ark is hit by a meteor shower and has severe damage. Colonel Gerard Brauchman sends Ava Cameron to repair a wing that is full of carbon monoxide. Dr. Lance Krauss warns that the gas may cause paranoia and hallucinations. Ava brings a sample of the meteor for analysis and Dr. Krauss finds that there are spores attached to the meteor.

In the beginning of the movie, at 02:24, Christian Slater's character activates some kind of 'communicator' and speaks into it. This is actually nothing more than a simple LED reading light. See more »
At one point, they state that a sensor shows levels of carbon monoxide that are off the chart. However, the sensor indicates CO2, which is carbon dioxide; the abbreviation for carbon monoxide is CO. See more »
There's a pointlessness to this film that ultimately leaves you wondering why you wasted an hour and a half.
It's not completely awful, it's just not very good and the main problem is the story, of which there isn't really any.
The directing didn't seem too bad to me and the acting isn't as terrible as some reviewers on here would have you believe, but it's utterly, hopelessly predictable and there was clearly no budget left for effects. They do their best with what they have, but it can't have been much.
I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the external shots of the moonbase - it is so clearly, painfully a model landscape that all hopes of immersion are immediately lost. And what passes for a moonbase control room is reminiscent of an early episode of Blake's 7 (remember that?).
This isn't the worst film in the world, if you've a couple of hours you don't mind losing or you're a complete SF nut, then knock yourself out. Otherwise, move along now.
