Shad (Richard Thomas) must scour the cosmos to recruit mercenaries from different planets and cultures in order to save his peaceful home planet from the threat of the evil tyrant Sador (John Saxon), who's bent on dominating and enslaving the entire universe. Joining this "magnificent seven" of mercenaries are the deadly Gelt (Robert Vaughn), carefree Cowboy (George Peppard) and the sexy Valkyrie Saint-Exmin (Sybil Danning).

The film benefits greatly from some extremely talented people behind the scenes that went on to bigger things: Academy Award®–winning director* James Cameron (The Terminator, Aliens), Academy Award®–winning composer** James Horner (Titanic, Avatar), screenwriter John Sayles (Lone Star, Piranha) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Terminator, Hulk) all participated in this "visually inventive and intermittently involving intergalactic shoot-'em-up" (The Onion A.V. Club)!

I remember seeing this in the theater back when it came out. Still have a soft spot for it.

It's among my favorite Corman films. It's very inventive and makes better use of a small budget than most films would.
