Attack from Space

Please choose a format above.

“Oh look, honey, we got something from Space!”
“That’s nice, open it, what is it?”
“Ugh, looks like it’s another stupid Attack.”
“You know, I’ve just about had it with Space.”

Attack from Space! Several Japanese sci-fi movies from the 50s, conveniently and nonsensically edited and repackaged into one American TV movie in the 60s. The system works!

The aliens of the Emerald Planet, who are basically piles of shoeboxes wrapped in tin foil sitting at a table in space, are worried about their enemies the Sapphireans attacking Earth and taking over the whole dang universe. That’s right, Emeralds vs. Sapphires, there really aren’t enough gemstone based feuds in modern sci-fi.

So naturally the Emerald guys summon Starman, a pudgy man in a tight, no-detail-spared unitard with a goofy antenna and a couple of guns. Not laser guns, just regular normal guns, for shooting people. Science fiction!

Will Starman defeat the Sapphireans and save the universe? Can he destroy their Death Star? Do they really have a thing called the Death Star? Yes, they really do!

Strap on your head-antenna and buckle your space diaper, it’s time to join Mike, Kevin and Bill for an Attack from Space!
