Yeah, that Star Trek series.
In DS9, remember the shape-shifters, the Changelings? Odo was one. At first, they thought he was the only one, only, it turned out that there was a whole race of them in the Gamma Quadrant. They were the mysterious Founders who waged the war that lasted several seasons.

That female changeling was in this movie. Salome Jens played the title role, as well as the nurse killed by the title character. She was a virtual unknown at the time this film was made. She got noticed on Broadway a few years after this. Left this turkey off her resumé, no doubt.

The movie is odd and poorly done. Some of the actors are okay, but not all of them. The script? Definitely MST3K-worthy.
We get treated to a song by the Observers, which actually is pretty fun.
The fight to the death between Pearl and Bobo is silly, but what else should be expected?
A pretty good episode. It's a shame the copyright holder of the film is either asking too much for want allow this episode to be released. It's worth if for the sheer badness of the film. The riffing and Host Segments top it off.
