This film shares the exact same set & space ship & actors as Warp Speed, Staring Adam West. It is like watching the same film with well not much of a story line. But non the less it is what it is, that being not Star Wars, so take it as you see it and don't judge it too harshly other wise it would get 1/10. Made for TV movies by their very nature suffer from low budgets, meaning poor acting & no special effects. If you can tolerate films of this nature then its not bad, I have seen a lot worse films made for 100 times the budget. A shining light of this flick is Hightower of police academy fame. If you find your self liking this then check out warp speed.........................
