  1. But, it’s a rather tepid and thoughtlessly dull/empty rip-off of the worst of Star Wars…. Were’s the heart in the tale? Do we really care about the characters?

      And I Didn’t/Don’t Care About A Single Star Wars Character hahaha
      I’d Take STAR TREK Over Star Wars Any Day, btw 😉
      And BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS Is Plenty Plenty Fun, Which Is ALL I Was Interested In Projecting.

      • No problem. I with you completely on the Star Trek point — sadly, Sar Wars did generate a lot of pallid rip-offs…. I’m not sure this one distinguishes itself from that rather lack luster group.
