The Lunar Base Ark is hit by a meteor shower and has severe damage. Colonel Gerard Brauchman sends Ava Cameron to repair a wing that is full of carbon monoxide. Dr. Lance Krauss warns that the gas may cause paranoia and hallucinations. Ava brings a sample of the meteor for analysis and Dr. Krauss finds that there are spores attached to the meteor. Ava accidentally cuts her finger in a sample but she hides the cut from the doctor. Soon Ava gets pregnant and delivers an alien offspring. Brauchman and Kraus believe that Ava is delusional. The offspring bites the crewman Bruce Johns and produces a clone of him.Written by

In the beginning of the movie, at 02:24, Christian Slater's character activates some kind of 'communicator' and speaks into it. This is actually nothing more than a simple LED reading light. See more »
A movie for huge sci-fi fans only. Tried so hard to be Aliens but fell way short. I thought it was slow and boring. I say C-
"I've never seen anything like it. Some form of ancient cell structure, it's reproducing at an incredible rate." While on a year long mission in a space station on the moon Col. Gerard Brauchman (Slater) and his crew experience a meteor storm. While trying to radio for help the communication system is knocked out and the four astronauts are left on their own. While trying to figure out what to do they begin to notice strange things happening to each other. This is a movie that I had pretty low expectations for but it was even a little worse then I expected. Bad acting, pretty slow and boring. The one thing I will say about this is that the movie tried so hard to be Aliens but it just never quite made it. There have been some very good sci-fi surprises in the last few years. Movies like Splice and Moon come to mind. This one is not anywhere near those two. Overall, if you are a huge sci-fi fan then you may like this. I did not. I give it a C-.
