What Movie Is This? Part Deux

Here's a brief translation of my previous post.
A friend of mine dropped a line:

"I'm looking for a movie where a the protagonist is on a space station and he's playing future football with aliens. A white female humanoid runs the station. The lead sleeps with her and you see brief nudity."

He would be much appreciative if you could ignore the previous bad grammar and slurs and drop a line if you might have an idea of what this movie is. And no, it is not Starship Troopers. Thanks!

It sounds like the latest Tek Jansen adventure to me.

Combining your original information with this translation, it sounds like your friend is conflating the scene with Princess Ardala from the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century thetrical release with the football scene from Flash Gordon - or possibly with the football scene from the Buck Rogers TV episode "Planet of the Slave Girls." And with that, I have earned my geek card.

Okay, it's a long shot but to me this sounds like a movie I saw a bunch of times on HBO a few years back called "Arena". As far as I recall it wasn't football, but it was a human guy fighting aliens as a kind of intergalactic gladiator. And I dont know if she ran the station but there was a girl in the movie the he slept with. Only other thing I remember is that it has Claudia Christian from Babylon 5 in it. Here's the description from IMDB:

"An intergalactic fighting competition between champions of various worlds has traditionally been won by a species much larger and stronger than humans. Entering the contest, a human finds he has to battle against not just his opponents and his self-doubts, but the corrupt system"
