We gave it a C

Anyone who grew up in the late ’70s glued to cheesy small-screen Star Trek knockoffs such as Space: 1999 and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century will certainly appreciate the retro-schlock spirit of Jack Plotnick’s intergalactic soap opera. But despite a game cast that includes Patrick Wilson and Liv Tyler, the film never quite lives up to its tongue-in-cheek premise. The Styrofoam sets, soft-rock soundtrack, and swingers-and-sangria Me Decade gags are spot-on in a Ron Burgundy sort of way. So why does it all feel as weightless as a zero-gravity chamber?
