The motley crew of the intergalactic patrol ship Infinity is sent to the far side of the universe to recover the BLUE STAR.  "Ahhhhaaaahhhh!"  All that I could think about was Doritos.

Hilarious review! Love the shoutout to Avery Schreiber and his his Doritos pitchman days. To think he was once part of a fairly popular comedy duo that used to turn up on Ed Sullivan's show.

Never seen this one, not sure I ever even saw a copy in a video store. But the trailer played on local TV when I was young and just lodged in my mind. The mix of scifi visuals and a voiceover playing up that the "late Dorothy Stratton" starred in the film was so bizarre to my little kid mind.

There's a Tshirt 'bar' in the city where you can make and design your own tshirts based around a heap of different pictures they have.  You choose the clothing and what goes on it, etc etc.  One section in the folders they have has some movie posters, such as Mad Max, and Galaxina is one of them.  I was very close to making one, but decided against it.  Thanks to that review I'm reconsidering that decision. 

Great stuff, funny, top shelf review as always.

I've been wanting to see this for years now. Haven't found a handy copy to view.

Saw STAR 80 years ago.

Andrew, you fail to make clear how painfully boring the whole thing is. It sets out to parody Star Wars and Alien, yet fails abysmally. All pathetic attempts at humor (such as the 'space battle') fall flat. The plot goes nowhere, and the film moves slower than the Tabanga.  All you get is Dorothy Stratten in a jump suit. I'll have the Ice Pirates instead any time.

I was wondering when you would get around to reviewing this movie. One of the classic Starwars knock offs from the 80s.

No discussion of Galaxina is complete without some mention of the sad story of the starlet in the starring role, Dorothy Stratten, which was covered in the biopic Star 80

Which is a horror story in itself--Eric Roberts at his absolute best.

A Tyranid player, at that.  I am "Badmovies.org" on Librarium and 40KOnline.  I haven't posted anything to either in a while, but have a number of batreps and conversions posted to both:
