Help me with obscure 1980's scifi movie

I can't tell you much, other than the fact that it was about a crew of people, led by a "Han Solo" type... there was also a little kid in it too... the spaceship was of a vrty weird design, it almost looked like a floating Camel's head (not toe)... I think... and if I recall, I remember seeing ANOTHER sci-fi movie that reused stock footage of the spaceship........ it was a serious sci fi flick, not a comedy like "Ice Pirates"



thanks for trying!

Many of the space scenes, and all the music, were taken from Battle Beyond the Stars (1980).

Yes, Battle Beyond the Stars is probably what you are thinking of.

Good ol' George Pepard. May he RIP.

wishbone!

thanks! that was it..........! I WAS thinking of Space Raiders..... funny how I thought THAT was the movie that originated the f/x footage.

also funny, that I remembered the ship looking like a camel's head, instead of two big flying tits on the bottom of a uterus!

LOL. thanks again!

Battle Beyond the Stars is easily the best sci-fi movie John Boy Walton ever made.

I used to LOVE watching the show Monsters on late Saturday nights when I was young. And Amazing Stories. And Misfits of Science. Just recently got those seiries on DVD and they're just as corny and awsome as I remember them.
