Starchaser: The Legend of Orin
Original soundtrack to STARCHASER: THE LEGEND OF ORIN, featuring music composed by Andrew Belling for the 1985 3D animated science fiction film directed by Steven Hahn, written by Jeffrey Scott, featuring the voices of Joe Colligan, Carmen Argenziano, Noelle North, Anthony de Longis, Tyke Caravelli and Les Tremayne. STARCHASER tells the story of Orin (Colligan), part of a tribe of humans who are forced to excavate the rare crystals of Mineworld by the evil Zygon (De Longis) and his technologically superior army. Similar to Fritz Lang's METROPOLIS, Orin and his people are kept in line with the belief that the world above them has been destroyed and if they continue to work hard and reach their crystal quota, their God will reward them. One day while he is digging, Orin finds a mysterious sword-hilt with a magical energy blade that only responds to his command. Holding the sword-hilt for the first time releases a hologram of a bearded man who encourages him to defy his captors and seek the freedom of the world above. Spurred on by the death of his loved ones, Orin makes his escape, digging his way up to the planet's surface to discover a sky full of stars and fresh air to breathe. Exploring the surface, Orin meets Dagg (Argenziano), a gruff smuggler known for his predilection for fembots and merciless treatment of mandroids. Orin joins Dagg on board his spaceship, the Starchaser, computer controlled by Arthur (Tremayne), who sounds more like an English butler than a pilot. Orin journeys from one end of the galaxy and back, trying to discover the origins of his mysterious weapon and how he can destroy Zygon and free the people of Mineworld.
