Robert Urich stars as a space pirate in the far future, when there's no more water in the galaxy, and pirates work the shipping lanes of open space to steal what ice there is left. Urich's Jason winds up in a plot involving a kidnapped princess, an evil empire, and a visit to "the seventh world," which includes time travel,
It's sci-fi camp, but the cheeseball special effects, low-budget sets, and iffy dialogue actually enhance the film to the point where it's kinda sorta fun. When the "space herpe" (a ripoff of the chest-burster from Alien) shows up on the ship, we know we're in for something, well, a little different.
Stupid, stupid, stupid... but amusing.
