Space Station 76 is a parody of science fiction film that draws much of its dark and subtle humour from its retro-futuristic surroundings and its ability to play with the cultural differences between 1970s and the present day. The film’s plot is focussed on the attempts of a new crew member named Jessica and her attempts to fit in with station’s dysfunctional crew. Built on an intriguing premise, but concluding abruptly, Space Station 76 promises much, but never fully delivers (Klaus Ming November 2015).
