En route to Earth's orbiting space station, a spaceship with four men aboard is attacked and they awaken after their spaceship crash lands. One of them, Professor Konrad, determines they have landed on Venus, a planet scientists had believed to be uninhabitable. They are taken prisoner by the inhabitants, all beautiful women, who imprisoned the men and took control of the planet. Their masked Queen, Yllana, has plans to destroy the Earth with their beta disintegrator but there is dissent among them led by the beautiful Talleah. Written by
It is somewhat of a coincidence that the colors of the uniforms of the armed women on Venus (red, blue, gold) match the basic colors of the uniforms of the original Star Trek (1966) series. The "Star Trek" uniforms in the pilot were different--blue, gold, beige. See more »

This is definitely a camp classic. The fact that Zsa Zsa Gabor tries to play this film as straight drama is worth a look at it alone. Also, this film is populated with a bunch of women who probably came straight off of a Las Vegas showroom and make Pamela Anderson look like Katherine Hepburn. Also, the special effects are some of the worst since the heyday of Ed Wood. This film definitely is one of those that fall into the category of being so bad that its funny.
