Quotes

[first lines]
Salera Elizabeth Hawke: This is the Earth, the year 2638. Six world wars, three of them in the last 200 years. One third of the population, six billion people, dead. Radiation storms, disease, famine, claim another 1 billion lives annually. Two factions are still at war for control of what remains. Genetically enhanced humans called Alphas, mutants and non-altered humans called Rebels. This time it was called the Cleansing War.

Just Plain Dark

Where is the crew of the Satellite of Love when you need them!!! Only MST3K could help this out! The ship is dark, the costumes are dark, the lighting is dark, and some of the effects budget must have been used up before they started. Skip it.
