Chosen One of the Day: That dead woman who got a second chance in Space Mutiny

One of the most loved episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 features a cheap and heavily muumuued '80s turd of a film called Space Mutiny. It stars Reb Brown, the OG Captain America from a 1979 made-for-TV movie. It stars Cisse Cameron, who got super naked in Porky's II: The Next Day. It stars John Phillip Law, from cult classics like Barbarella and Danger: Diabolik. But mostly it stars this dead lady who looks like Melissa Manchester.


The movie is obviously edited to fit into a 90-minute episode of television and also is not a good film in any way shape or form (except its flawless leotard game) but from what I can gather, Lt. Lemont is about to get in the way of the titular space mutiny, so she's killed.


But then, literally in the very next scene...


It's rare a character makes such an impact for clearly making so little an impact that the editors didn't even notice her, but Lt. Lemont, we salute you. Look alive.
