Storyline

Space Station 76 is a refueling satellite near an alternate-reality Earth, circa 1976. Jessica arrives to serve as the station's new first mate. While she narrates a piece about how she likes the predictability of asteroids, some placidly drifting asteroids are shown colliding in chain-reaction fashion. While at first the station appears normal and the people friendly, Jessica soon discovers that the people on board have issues due to the isolation and stress of being cooped up with one another in a relatively small space far from Earth. This is in addition the usual problems people struggle with, such as infidelity, loneliness, depression, and drug abuse. She tries to make friends and fit in, but, unable to connect meaningfully with anyone, she becomes lonely. She's baffled and disillusioned by the stiff and irritable Captain Glenn, who harbors secrets of his own. She finds herself drawn to Ted, a lonely, married crewman, and his 7 year-old daughter, Sunshine. Ted yearns to reconnect... Written by Ken B.

Goofs

The station seems to have an artificial gravity that can be turned on and off at will. The habitat rings however also rotates, creating an artificial gravity all on their own. The resulting gravity would have the inhabitants walk partly on the edge windows as that would be the real direction of the resulting artificial gravity. See more »

Elevator type music and Valium
27 September 2014 | by pmitchell-118-276481See all my reviews

Space Station 76. It's not a bad film, neither is it a good film, nevertheless it is watchable. The film has a reference to Valium and to be fair watching it gives you a feeling that you are on tranquilisers, as the film has a gentle almost tranquil effect from the calming Elevator type music playing in the background, to the slow composed way the actors speak.

I did not find the film to be over humorous, in fact it barely raised a smile but it was addictive. The characters were well developed and interacted well. The sets are well designed and the reference to the seventies makes it seem somewhat timeless. The film played out a little like an afternoon soap opera.

Whether the film will over time develop into a cult film, maybe! Give the film a try as it has its moments.
