"Space Thing is a 1968 sexploitation flick from legendary producer David F. Friedman and if you're familiar with his work then you know what to expect. Friedman knew the business and he knew what his audiences wanted. It ain't gonna be art. But it probably will be sexy fun.

James Granilla is obsessed by science fiction. Totally obsessed. It's all he thinks about. It's got to the point where he'd rather read his science fiction magazines than have sex with his wife Marge. This does not please Marge at all. She does finally manage to persuade him to make love to her but as soon as it's over he starts fantasising about the life he'd really like to lead. He'd like to command a starship, on a dangerous mission to intercept an enemy space fleet. He'd much rather be doing that than having sex with his wife.

So now the film becomes James Granilla's daydream of his life as a bold spacefaring hero…"
