Space Mutiny (1988) (part 1 of 7)

The Cast of Characters:
Reb Brown as David RyderDavid Ryder (Reb Brown). The Official Hero of the Film, who has the unfortunate tendency to let his battle yells stray into soprano levels.
Cameron Mitchell as Commander Alex JansenCommander Alex Jansen (Cameron Mitchell). Supposedly the leader of a multi-generational spaceship called the Southern Sun, but it’s hard to picture him commanding a dog.
Cisse Cameron as Lea JansenLea Jansen (Cisse Cameron). Daughter of Commander Jansen, and wise beyond her years. Or rather, aged beyond her years. Is nevertheless foisted upon us as a sex object.
John Phillip Law as Elijah KalganElijah Kalgan (John Phillip Law). The head of security on the Southern Sun, and leader of the “space mutiny”. His primary goal is to get off the ship. It’s not at all clear what’s stopping him.
James Ryan as MacPhearsonMacPhearson (James Ryan). Head of Engineering. Compensates for his crippling injury—which might just be a severed hamstring—with an overdeveloped hambone. Works undercover as Kalgan’s right-hand man, until Kalgan blows his cover for no particular reason.
Graham Clarke as Captain Scott DeversCaptain Scott Devers (Graham Clarke). Has so much screen time, you almost don’t notice he never does a damn thing.
Billy Second as Lt. LemontLt. Lemont (Billy Second). Quite likely the most competent person on the ship. As such, is doomed to a fate worse than death. Literally.
Madyelene Reynel, voiced by Camille Mitchell as JenneraJennera (Madyelene Reynel, voiced by Camille Mitchell). Leader of a group of mystical women called the Bellerians. The filmmakers would like you to believe they’re an integral part of the story. The film itself may prove otherwise.
