Storyline

Lt. John Barton is sent on a special mission to deliver a special vaccine to a distant mining colony. He is infuriated to find Lee, a stowaway aboard his spacecraft. Barton has only enough fuel to carry himself and his precious cargo, and Lee's added weight insures that they will crash if she stays on board. They have gone too far to turn back, and Barton's superiors make it clear: the mission takes precedence and Lee has to be dumped into space. But she won't go quietly.

Marilyn 'Lee' Cross: So what are you gonna do?
Lt. John Barton: Ask for help.
Marilyn 'Lee' Cross: Don't be stupid. They're not gonna help. You're kind of stuck with me.
Lt. John Barton: Stupid? I'm being stupid? You have no idea what's happening.
Marilyn 'Lee' Cross: Yes I do. I'm here and it's against the rules and don't be such a pain. I said I'd pay the fine.
Lt. John Barton: There is no fine. It's more serious than that!

Just put her out!
16 September 2017 | by dusty-hSee all my reviews

I'm halfway through this movie, and I'm chanting 'Put Her Out' - 'Put Her Out' - 'Put Her Out'. This woman's character has more attitude that is ill placed for a stowaway... Would've made for a better, shorter movie. The extended blackouts between scenes were annoying also, I thought my TV turned off on the first one. The acting is above par for a B movie, but still struggled with this movie.
