So anyway, you have this scientist who was involved in a program to build a super-space ship to defend earth that looks oddly like the the super submarine in the movie Atrogon. But aliens attack and they decide that they are going to launch the ship and attack the aliens who are headquartered on Venus. Oddly, this ship is able to make short work of the alien saucers while the world's combined militaries were ineffective against them.

For some equally bizarre reason, the alien ship looks like a Roman Galley and the alien dude leader was wearing Roman armor with sunglasses. We can only assume it was a rummage sale in the Toho Studios costume department. Not nearly as sad as the BDSM costume the female lead had to wear after she was captured for plot purposes. They also had something that looked like a Wookie with horns and carried a glowing ax. Maybe they were just working off the publicity poster for Star Wars and thought maybe that what it was about? I'm giving it three out of ten for the BDSM outfit the chick was wearing.I'm in a generous mood.
