Have to say, I find the premise of the movie kind of interesting, as several people said below. If only it were decently executed, but, then, it wouldn't be on MST3k! These are my favorite episodes, when the movie has an element of interest which makes the overall badness of it SO PAINFUL!!

At about 28:45, for about 30 seconds I love how everybody at the hospital is running full speed in every direction. I'm busting a gut, it's like the Keystone Cops on cocaine.

Thank you, Servo, I will rememember to use this line from now on: "I'd rather share a needle with Keith Richards." Had me busting a gut.

Joel's mind at 5:45 - "Oh jeez, should I say 'wrong' or 'awry?' Wrong or awry?? WRONG OR - ah, dammit."

I like how they had the step ladder just for Jack Perkins to rest his arm on.

"Who's Jack Perkins" doesn't have the resonance of "Who is Merritt Stone." I think it lacks texture.

I actually don't think they're gingers it's just part of the helmet, if you look at when they show ken later he has black hair. When they show the commander he's bald and on the wall behind him is a helmet hanging up complete with ginger hair.

This show demonstrates that the most fearsome warriors in our galaxy is an army of japanese gingers.

I half-expected a long-haired ape, dressed in a spiffy white suit to come out after the mention of "His Excellency" at 1:02:11. Curse you, Sandy Frank!

When the alien is rescued by the humans, why do they keep talking about him not having a space suit on when he, uh CLEARLY has a space suit on? Just sayin...

This is a great imported Japanese film/TV show, somewhat cheesy, but still compared to Mighty Jack, this is much better.

I just watched the mst3k version of the sequel to this, 318 - Star Force: Fugitive Alien II, and didn't find this first one when I searched... ah, browsing, the other search! if the gang does as great a job on this one as they did with "Star Force: Fugitive Alien II" I'm pretty sure I'll be the most annoying, loudest, frequent laughing housemate known to this area. oh well!

You know, I.. I think I would kind of like to watch the original show this is from, unriffed. There's a lot to like, here, except Sandy Frank chopped it up into nonsense. It's a lot less terrible than some of the other things the guys riff on, thats for sure.

Also, my favorite riff in this is when the captain stares Ken down when he tries to steal the ship. "No one beats ME at snap-zooms, I was in Time of the Apes!!"

Even as cheesy as this movie is, I have to admit that I find Ken (the Wolf Raider) to be fairly interesting as a character. Especially his sudden desire to act out and go exploring. It's like he's never had a chance to do that when he was growing up and was suddenly able to. Yes, I know I'm overanalyzing, but I find Ken to be one of the more nuanced characters on an MST3K movie.

Joe Shishido is actually a decent actor, he's in a lot of Japanese gangster movies. He had his cheeks surgically altered to look the part more.

WHY do I find it so funny when Ordainja, Lord of Kararoo is introduced? I guess because I expect Bruce Lee but I get Arnold from Happy Days...in a goofy hat.

Rocky has got to be one of the worst "good guys" ever. He decides to test whether or not Ken is a Wolf Raider by trying to kill him with a forklift. What if he'd been wrong? He'd have killed an innocent man! They see Ken adrift in space and Rocky's reaction is to tell them to do nothing about it. He gets knocked out by an injured Ken. What's so great about Rocky, now? Why would Joe not go anywhere without him? Is Rocky's father a high-ranking officer or something and he HAS to take him along?

Such a brilliant tactic to display a micro bomb/ device. Just pinch your fingers together, and it looks like you're REALLY holding onto something futuristic!

The fugitive alien movies are highly under-rated. I don't know what it is, but all the Japanese movies they riff almost seem like they're made to be riffed...

As a former mallet percussionist, I LOVE the musical chair! But guys, why make it sound like a vibraphone? It's design lends itself to bells, or at least a xylophone. Vibraphones need pedals and cushions. Just my little niggle. :)
