Blast off on a routine flight and crash into the planet D’Illyria where a sci fi version of “The Tempest” set to rock ‘n’ roll golden oldies unfolds with glee. The planet is inhabited by a sinister scientist, Dr. Prospero; his delightful daughter Miranda; Ariel, a faithful robot; and an uncontrollable monster, the product of Prospero’s Id, who wreaks havoc on the space craft.
