Galaxina (1980)

A late Star Wars (1977) spoof set in the 31st century and featuring lowbrow comedy, duff special effects, an awkward Alien (1979) parody and a central performance by Dorothy Stratten, murdered by her estranged husband on the very day it received its American premiere.

The doomed starlet is the robot navigator onboard intergalactic police cruiser number 308, the Infinity, on a 28-year mission to recover possession of the powerful Blue Star crystal.

While the human crew are in cryogenic sleep, Galxina reprograms herself to become more human.

A sad epitaph for Stratten whose life story was turned into the acclaimed Bob Fosse movie Star 80 (1983).
