PLOT: A mining spaceship, on its way, is alerted to a suspected SOS so lands on a planetoid. However, when it gets there it finds more than it bargained for.
FUN FACT: The models had to be repainted every evening of the shoot because the slime used on-set removed the acrylic paint from their surfaces.
