Plot Summary

Marshal W.T. O'Niel is assigned to a mining colony on Io, one of Jupiter's moons. During his tenure miners are dying - usually violently. When the marshal investigates he discovers the one thing all the deaths have in common is a lethal amphetamine-type drug, which allows the miners to work continuously for days at a time until they become "burned out" and expire. O'Niel follows the trail of the dealers, which leads to the man overseeing the colony. Now O'Niel must watch his back at every turn, as those who seek to protect their income begin targeting him...

Trivia The script was originally intended to be set in a western period, but Peter Hyams decided to move it into the outer space background due to the influence of Alien (1979). The original title was Io, but Hyams was persuaded to change the title, by an executive from the Ladd Company, following a demonstration on random people, that many would read the title as number 10 instead.

Goofs In the outdoor scenes showing Io's mining buildings with Jupiter and the stars in the background, the stars are blinking. Such blinking is caused by viewing the stars through an atmosphere, as on Earth. But Io has virtually no atmosphere. Therefore, the stars should have been shining steadily. See more »

Quotes Dr. Marian Lazarus: You know if you're the guy you're supposed to be, you wouldn't stick around. That's why they sent you here.
Marshal William T. O'Neil: Maybe they made a mistake.
Dr. Marian Lazarus: I was afraid you'd say something like that. Do you really think you're making a difference?
[O'Neil is silent]
Dr. Marian Lazarus: Then why for God's sake?
Marshal William T. O'Neil: Because... maybe they are right. They sent me here to this pile of shit because they think I belong here. I want to find out if... well if they're right. There's a whole machine that works because everybody does what they are supposed to. And I found out... I was supposed to be something I didn't like. That's what's in the program. That's my rotten little part in the rotten machine. I don't like it. So I'm going to find out if they're right.
