A grief stricken captain embarks on his final mission in command of an ageing cargo ship. The ship's small crew, frustrated and discontent with their lives in deep space try to complete a successful mission, but the ship has ideas of it's own. Soon, an 'accident' onboard forces a diversion to Somnus, a derelict asteroid station in a forgotten sector of the solar system. They soon discover the colony is populated by a mysterious and sinister cult, hell-bent on dark plans for Earth. The crew's hope of sanctuary on Somnus soon turns to peril, as they fight for their own survival against the colonists, and humanity's ultimate fate. Terrifying truths about the end of life on Earth soon force the captain to face up to his personal torment leading to a climatic and exciting conclusion.

Don't even bother with this one.
Possibly one of the worst films ever made! The acting is exceptionally poor as is the plot. This is obviously supposed to be something like Kubrick's "2001", although it is an extremely irritating, confusing, and cheap and nasty version.
The GREMLIN monster is like something from the 1980's series "V". I mean come on, how on earth did they come up with something on such a pantomime level? The VOICE of the ship is that of a thin and nasally female which lacks character, sincerity and depth. It sounds like the crew are speaking to a supermarket checkout employee! Half way thru their mission the crew discover they have accidentally taken off with an extra passenger - an engineer who had not disembarked before take off. I should have turned it OFF at this point.
Might suit a young teenager audience with very limited knowledge or lack of insight into this films genre.
A complete waste of time and money.
Hope this helps . . .
