Movie Details

When the FBI puts its war against terrorism into space, the terrorists fight back in this action drama. In an effort to more closely monitor the activities of underground militia groups, the U.S. government schedules the launch of a surveillance satellite designed specifically to keep tabs on domestic terrorists. The satellite is to be launched during NASA's next space shuttle mission; however, a militia group calling themselves the Diamondbacks have learned the location of the tracking station that monitors the shuttle's activities, and they stage an armed raid that effectively cuts off all communication between the shuttle, its crew, and NASA's tracking computers shortly after launch. FBI agent Frank Jenkins (Miles O'Keeffe) is sent in to take back the tracking station and insure the safety of the astronauts, but he soon discovers that not all of his associates can be trusted. Diamondbacks also features Timothy Bottoms, Chris Mitchum, and Ed Lottimer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
