The Sci-Fi Film School #23 – Battle Beyond The Stars


On this episode of The Sci-Fi Film School, we’re joined by our special guest Inertia for a discussion of the 1980 movie Battle Beyond The Stars.

With the peaceful planet of Akir in peril, seven mercenaries join forces to protect it from the plottings of an intergalactic megalomaniac in this Roger Corman-produced sci-fi fantasy inspired by The Seven Samurai.

Starring Richard Thomas, Robert Vaughn, George Peppard, John Saxon and Darlanne Fluegel.

Battle Beyond The Stars was produced by Roger Corman, with music by James Horner and special effects by James Cameron.

One of his first sci-fi memories was that of watching Star Trek the original series in reruns on Sunday mornings so, as you can imagine, that made quite the impression and was one of the inspirations for founding the Galactic Netcasts network in 2011.
