Wow this is great news - always been a guilty pleasure of mine this film, and I swear it has NOTHING at all to do with Sybil Danning's costume........ .............much! A fantastic soundtrack from a young James Horner too! Nice to have this science fiction film transferred directly from the internegative without any CGI enhancements....

Now that you mention it, I'll be buying this instead of the Star Wars blu-rays due to this fact.

 John Boy in Space!!! Nearly fell asleep last time I watched.  But in a retro mood I'd love to attempt staying awake to watch a Blu ray.  I'd really love to see Android, filmed on the sets of this (I believe), on Blu Ray as well.

I saw this film only once when it was theatrically released. I laughed though this film so much that I had tears rolling down my face. It was one of the funniest comedies I had ever seen up to that point, except that it wasn't supposed to be a comedy.

Oh me gosh....


If this is the film that I am thinking of, it was something

I distinctly remember seeing as a teenager and hating it.


It had something to do with a space battle and Christopher

Lee communicating without words by nodding his head.


I saw it because it came out post "Star Wars" and well...

it was just  plain awful.

Nope. You're thinking of Starship Invasions, an astonishingly bad movie with Robert Vaughn and Christopher Lee:

BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS has, if nothing else, a ship that looks like boobies. It's a guilty pleasure.

Aaaah.  Thank you for the correction.

^^^^^^^^^^ Well, it would be easy to make the mistake because this movie was another incredibly bad movie with Robert Vaughn in it. This flick also came out shortly after Star Wars.

There were a lot of those movies in 1978-1980. The most obscure one I recall was Message From Space with Vic Morrow.

Starship Invasions was made for TV, wasn't it?


The boobie-ship could also pass for a freakish combination of the female *and* male reproductive systems. Hm, I guess you have to be kinda twisted to fully appreciate this movie. :)

Starship Invasions was a theatrical feature released in October 1977. You can see the trailer here.


And if you really want to know more about it, check this out.

This brings back memories. The spectacular Sybil Danning as Valkyrie utters the immortal line "You haven't lived until you've seen a Valkyrie go down" A sci-fi classic.
