The tale of a young videogame player who is recruited by an alien alliance to pilot its last remaining spacecraft, the film had as its centerpiece the "Gunstar, " a large and wholly credible two-man fighter designed by celebrated conceptual artist Ron Cobb.
Lifting off vertically and equipped with a powerful "Hail Mary" weapons array called the "Death Blossom, " the Gunstar never existed as a physical model, being wholly a creation of computer graphics.
