SYNOPSIS:  This borders on too famous for the Smithees in that I vaguely remember it being in the theaters and it stars Molly Ringwald, Peter Strauss, and Michael Ironside. On the other hand, it was also released in 3-D, so how good could it really be? Answer: Not very. Peter Strauss is a down-on-his-luck space salvage operator who decides to try to rescue three survivors from a starliner which crashed on a plague-ravaged world. Along the way, he teams up with orphan waif Molly Ringwald and has various "adventures" en route to the rescue of the survivors, a "dramatic" confrontation with villain Overdog (Michael Ironside), and Molly having to survive the Death Maze (alas, she does).
