  The evil GALACTIC EMPIRE has inserted its Death Star among the moons of a giant ringed world orbiting a middle-aged star. Alarm spreads among the fearful EARTHLINGS on a small nearby planet: what has brought the Empire to this galactic sector, to this Sun?

Intercepting sinister electromagnetic bursts, and suspicious of evil intent, the EARTHLINGS dispatch a spacefaring vehicle with powerful detectors to find out...

With three Death Star-like moons in orbit around Saturn (Mimas,Tethys,and Iapetus),be careful or you'll receive the visit of a guy dressed with black ropes,asmatic problems,and a sword of light :)

Watch this fun little movie when you need a "pick me up" after a tough day at work in Sector 3, and your woes will be blasted to bits! I have yet to see someone watch this movie and not smile. A real favorite, and we get to keep the soundtrack!!!
