The Movie

Synopsis

It's "Faster, PussyKen, Kill, Kill!" in this continuation of Fugitive Alien that the public demanded.

After a brief recap of the first "movie", the "Earth's oldest spaceship ... [and] beat up old crate" Bacchus 3 of Space Command, with plucky spill-resistant vinyl-clad crew Captain "Drinky-drinky Chipmunk Cheeks" Joe (Jo Shishido), pilot Rocky (Choei Takahashi), navigator Dan (Tsutomu Yukawa), morale officer Tammy (Miyuki Tanigawa), Billy, and former Star Wolf Raider, the eponymous fugitive alien ("call me Fugi!") Ken (Tatsuya Azuma), as well as Colonel Yurulin, whom they rescued from prison in part one, head to Saysar, the Colonel's home world. They plan to sabotage a weapon there that can destroy an entire planet.

Along the way "tenperatures" rise as they must confront a black hole, a "meteorite", and a just-about-to-explode star. They succeed in their mission, but the Colonel, enraptured by Saysar’s Handel-like anthem played over a loudspeaker, is killed, probably for budget reasons, when he races back to prevent the secret weapon from being destroyed. Next, the crew of the Bacchus 3 travels to a fresh planet seeking yet another weapon, one that can destroy the entire universe. This plot line is soon jettisoned when Ken spies someone who looks exactly like his mother. It turns she is part of a trap set by the Kabuki Darth Vader manque Lord Halkon, evil genius ruler of Ken’s planet Valna Star, who was last seen in part one ordering the destruction of Earth and all its inhabitants.

Ken and Lord Halkon have it out, both on the ground and in spaceships, and the Kabuki Darth is (apparently) killed when his spaceship crashes. The Bacchus 3 takes off again, but Ken tells the rest of the crew that he is returning to Valna Star to make it into a better place for all Kens everywhere.
