Which is how you end up with films like this, filled with excellent '80s starships and space battles (James Cameron started here as an effects specialist) but also costumes that look right out of the original Star Trek: white-faced aliens with third eyes painted on along with a space cowboy cleverly named Space Cowboy. Not that I don't love me my classic Trek, but at least those plots had something to them. Here the script is just filled with cheesy dialogue that sounds like it's adapted from some kind of '60s hippie commune.The plot gets full props for inspiration if not execution. Basically the Seven Samurai in space it takes a compelling tale and adds lasers. Problem is it chooses to follow the peasant character (*cough* flyboy) who is a tedious teenage bland idealist, when it could be following any one of the other more interesting players. As a result the characters (or caricatures) never really take off.This film exists in the zone between genuinely bad and barely competent films. It's not quite bad enough to be funny but it's not good enough to stick with you on its own merits. It just kinda? is.
