In sum, this plot follows many other sci-fiction futuristic tales of a post-apocalyptic society whose remnants fight over the scorched Earth. In this case, the Earth is a desert planet much like the Sahara or Mojave Desert. Similar to "The Road Warrior" "Waterworld" etc. the people are torn between being survivalists and trying to form some vision and some community for the future. Beyond simply a survivalist tale of good versus evil, this story has many valuable themes: man's nature towards good or evil versus environment shaping behavior, redemption, marriage and commitment, Biblical themes in the real world, etc.Written by

The TV Movie aired on the Sci-fi Channel the same year as the release of the science fiction film No Escape (1994). Both films have a similar plot. No Escape (1994) starred Ray Liotta as a imprisoned former soldier whom is dumped on a prison island and left there to survive or die and he agrees to help a fortified village inhabited by resourceful prisoners to defend the village from a gang of barbarian warriors that live in the jungle on the prison island. This film is about prisoners whom are dumped on a desert planet and find themselves fighting for survival against nomadic desert warriors on that planet. See more »
I was an extra in this movie it was my first and only stint in film, It was filmed inside the Albuquerque convention center and in white sands NM around 1993. I wish I was in the credits but they forgot to mention me despite my awesome acting skills. I'm in the first few scenes I'm a prisoner on the ship there is about 3 scenes were i can be seen if your quick with the pause button. The film was not a very big budget movie but I'm not really sure how much it costs to shoot. The reason I auditioned for the film is because I wanted to be a sand pirate but they ended up casting me for a prisoner due to my poor horse riding skills. The movie was originally made for the Sci Fi channel and VHS copies were scarce and expensive to purchase, however you can pick them up on ebay from time to time.
