Years have passed since Ted Striker heroically saved many lives by avoiding a plane crash. Working as a test pilot for a new Lunar Shuttle, he gets innocently sent into a mental ward after a crash of the badly constructed, computer-navigated spaceship. When he hears that the exactly same type of shuttle is scheduled for a moon flight soon, he breaks out to hinder the launch. Aboard, Ted finds his ex-ex Elaine Dickinson working as stewardess again and her fiancé Simon, a member of the committee that wants the Mayflower I to be launched. In flight, the ship's computer ROK 9000 takes control, killing the crew. Ted and Elaine manage to switch it off, and now it is up to Ted again to save the passengers' lives - if there only wouldn't be these flashbacks to the war and these people who know Ted and have no faith in his abilities at all.Written by

William Shatner (Commander Buck Murdock) and Lee Bryant (reprising her role as the hysterical Mrs. Hammen from the first film, during the courtroom scene), were already working together at the time of this film's release on the television series T.J. Hooker (1982). In that series, Shatner played the lead role of police officer T.J. Hooker, and Bryant had a recurring role as Hooker's ex-wife, Fran. See more »

One television version, released after the announcement that Ronald Reagan had developed Alzheimer's disease, changes the sign used in Ted Striker's escape sequence from "Ronald Reagan Home for the Mentally Ill" to "Donald Dragon Home for the Mentally Ill." See more »
Having said that however, I don't think this film is as bad as some other reviewers have stated. Sure they re-hash a lot of stuff from the first movie, but hey! It's still funny right? I think this movie has a lot going for it. Some of the jokes fall flat, but some are hilarious. You've just got to take the rough with the smooth.
