His mission begins with the unlikely delivery of a cat to a small outer-belt asteroid saloon where he meets his former dance partner, and renowned interplanetary fruit thief, the Blueberry Pirate.

A low budget B&W film. The look is modeled after old Sci-Fi films like Flash Gordon. Including drawings for the spaceship exterior with camera zooms and pans. The cinematography is more "film noir" and is interesting in parts and just contrasty in others.
The acting is very good in this campy storyline. There isn't a plot or character development worth mentioning the campy wierdness and design is what drives this film.
Overall it is an interesting venture with some good jokes and situations but is very quirky for the general public.
As for the ending all I can describe is that it does.
If you have an interest in film, this is an interesting venture. If you are looking for mainstream films, this ain't it.
