Dan O'Bannon in Dark Star: Theatrical Cut

Dark Star: Hyperdrive Edition: Theatrical Cut

1975 G

Stuck on a 20-year mission to destroy unstable worlds, the crew of Dark Star can barely remember their home planet, Earth. When an asteroid storm short-circuits the vessel's weapons system, the astronauts and senior surviving officer Lt. Doolittle (Brian Narelle) must talk a "smart bomb" out of killing them all. This surreal parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey marked John Carpenter's directorial debut; this program features the theatrical cut.
