I also want to know the name of this movie. I remember it as you have described and cannot find the name anywhere.

I can add that to stop him going crazy stuck on the stolen space shuttle for the 5 year orbit, he painted a picture of a naked lady on the cockpit door and the female computer voice made him look at the at the sunrise or sunset of either venus or mercury as the ship went past with the dialogue that he would be the only human to ever see it it, now... after he initially was not interested in looking.

Forsome reason, I recall the movie to be called something like "The Lost Planet" but searching on this title has been fruitless..

I rented this movie in New Zealand in the late 1980s (on VHS). The plot is as described. I remember the props and sets being a little corny even then, but with all good B movies, you get carried away by the plot. I don't know its name but I  wouldn't mind seeing it again.

I posted this on another site also (a year ago) and very happy I got a response last week!

The movie is called "Galaxy Destroyer" 1986. It was an Italian movie which is probably why it was so difficult to hunt down! The movie is on youtube.

I am a professor of communication at a midwest university, with expertise in film. I can answer most questions on the original "Star Wars" trilogy, and some on the newer trilogy. I also have expertise in general science-fiction film (both history and theory), especially in the United States. For movie titles, I need to have the release date (or a date range, or at least when you saw it). It is better if you note significant, major plot details and characters rather than minor plot events, and it is even better if you can recall an actor or director's name, and if it is a film or TV movie. Plesse do not just provide a set of links to someplace else (e.g. imdb discussion threads). I am less able to answer the following, although I will do my best to track down an answer for you--recent SF films, horror films, or made-for-TV movies. Most SF films from other countries are out of my areas of expertise. In addition, I cannot answer questions about animated SF films, anime/manga, television series or shows, or about film collectables. Nor will I answer obvious homework (although I will point you to resources to help answer the question, if asked). I also can't help you find movie stars, movie memorabilia, or tell you how to break into the business.
