Synopsis by Mark Deming

In this sci-fi action story set in the not-so-distant future, American and Russian scientific teams have joined forces to man a space station that is still being constructed as it orbits the Earth. After a number of flaws in the station's computer system become evident, Amanda (Teri Ann Linn), a system's expert, is put on a shuttle to the station to troubleshoot the equipment. Joining her is Russian technician Federov (Frank Zagariono), but en route it is discovered that Federov is actually a member of a terrorist group; after taking Amanda hostage, Federov threatens to destroy the space station and use SDI weaponry against the world if his demands are not met. With time running out, maverick shuttle pilot J.J. Hendricks (Daniel Baldwin) may be the only person who can rescue Amanda and save the world from the Russian terrorists. Fallout also stars Scott Valentine and John Reilly.
