In the year 2050, the battle to save the earth will be fought on the sun.
From the special effects wizards who brought you "Star Wars" and "2010" comes this super charged sci-fi adventure featuring an all star cast that includes: Tim Matheson, Charlton Heston, Peter Boyle, Annabel Schofield, Corin "Corky" Nemic, Jack Palance and Dorian Haywood. Dazzling special effects, deep space suspense and grand scale action heighten the thrills in this futuristic epic.
The crew members of the Helios, each with their own special area of expertise, are on a critical mission to explore a flare that endangers the Earth. The star craft is carrying a space probe loaded with an anti-matter bomb to be shot into the heart of the sun. If successful, this bomb could trigger the mega-flare away from the Earth.
But the risks of doing battle with the sun pale by comparison to dangers from saboteurs on Earth. Determined to stop the mission, the saboteurs planted a traitor on board.
