I am looking for a movie, problably from the 1970s, where a couple boards a deserted spaceship. When using the onboard computer terminals, the computer answers a few simple questions but on more elaborate questions crashes repeating the phrase "warn the bridge".

I saw this movie when I was a kid but I only caught the first few minutes. It seemed interesting enough (for a 10 year old, that is...).


That sounds like the TV series "The Starlost" (1973). Look at this interaction with the ship's computer in the pilot episode:

  • But the Starlost ship isn't deserted (just mostly uncrewed) and there were three people wandering around. – mu is too short Aug 12 '13 at 22:21
  • It depends on which 'few minutes' were watched. It seems close enough to suggest it. – ImaginaryEvents Aug 12 '13 at 22:50
  • Fair enough. Starlost was my first thought too. – mu is too short Aug 12 '13 at 22:57

    Great SF premise, lousy execution. I wish someone would dust it off and try again. – Jim2B Mar 4 '15 at 6:17
