December 10, 1982
A space shuttle is headed straight for the sun thanks to a computer error. The panicked folks at NASA can think of only one man to call: Ted Striker, the man who safely landed a major jet plane in the midst of disaster a couple of years back. Mayhem is rampant as the shuttle and ground control is populated with morons. Striker's life is better than it was at the time of the near-crash, but he still struggles with some issues, and he has to work through those in order to keep the shuttle from certain disaster. In the meantime, a host of quirky characters spouts cheesy one-liners and jokes that will sound familiar to anyone who accompanied Ted Striker on his first heroic journey.
