I need help finding the title of a film which features a spacecraft that has an AI.

There is only one man and one woman in the movie.

The man is the only one on the spaceship and he is just there as a mechanic.

The AI wants a new mechanic. It meets up with another spaceship that has a woman on it so they can procreate and breed a new mechanic to train.

The man and woman catch on to this and rebel against the AI.

That's pretty much the movie in a nutshell.

Can anyone help me figure out what the movie is?

Are you sure this was a movie and not part of a TV show? – Caimen Feb 26 '13 at 15:37
It's an outer limits episode – Kevin Howell Feb 26 '13 at 15:41

It's this episode of Outer Limits: The Human Operators. I loved this episode, and the show for that matter. I cant recall seeing this same story in a scifi movie

This sounds an awful lot like the Outer Limits episode, The Human Operators which IMDB describes as:

On a ship controlled by an authoritarian computer maintained by human slaves, a man and woman learn that the ship fears them. The humans dream of sabotaging the ship's sentient control system and free themselves.

The synopsis on Wikipedia mentions other matching details such as the ships being brought together in order to get the male and female to mate.
