EventTitle: It's called ''Space Mutiny'' and it's about a mutiny... in space.



* {{Filler}}: The Belarians were obviously added at the last minute to fill time. Other than a brief scene with the Commander, nobody even talks about them except in voice-over and they have no effect on the plot whatsoever. What little interaction they have with the rest of the movie is clearly stitched together in editing from unrelated scenes. The effects also take a nosedive even for this movie, consisting entirely of some store-bought plasma balls and a fog machine.

Kalgan sabotages the vessel's guidance system just as an important professor's shuttle is on a landing trajectory, causing it to crash [[OffscreenCrash (offscreen)]]. The ship's pilot, [[TheHero Dave Ryder]], is able to escape, but the professor dies in the explosion. This sabotage seals off the flight deck for a number of weeks, allowing Kalgan and the Enforcers to hold the entire population of the Southern Sun hostage. Commander Jansen and Captain Devers enlist Ryder's assistance, aided begrudgingly by Jansen's daughter [[{{Loveinterests}} Dr. Lea Jansen]], to regain control of the ship.

''Space Mutiny'' was filmed in UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica during TheApartheidEra (a fact understandably not mentioned on the end credits - see also ''Prisoners of the Lost Universe'', ''Golden Rendezvous'', ''Hellgate,'' etc.), which some viewers think ties in to all the pseudo-fascistic goings-on (and explains the all-white cast, not that that was exactly unusual in Hollywood action movies of the time). The film also borrows almost all of its spaceship footage from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'', including using the ''Galactica'' itself as a stand in for the ''Southern Sun''.

* EvilIsHammy: John Phillip Law as Kalgan certainly knows what kind of film he's in, and [[HamAndCheese pitches his performance appropriately]].

* EvilIsHammy: John Phillip Law as Kalgan certainly knows what kind of film he's in, and [[HamAndCheese pitches his performance appropriately]]. Not surprisingly, he gives by far the best performance in the movie.

* YouLookFamiliar: The actress playing Lt. Lamont appears as an extra on the bridge... in a scene that immediately follows Lamont's death. Whoops.

* OurGraphicsWillSuckInTheFuture: The film simulates the fighting space ships in the beginning with very primitive vector graphics that only show a vague resemblance to their counterparts.
