Planet of Dinosaurs is an great old fashioned grind house movie. Its the type of film so bad its good. The basic plot goes something like this from wiki :
Charlotte wonders if they will ever be rescued, to which Nyla comments that it does not seem important anymore.
- 1d8 Brontosaurus Herd
- 1d4 Allosaurus hunting
- A group of flightless herbivore dinosaurs species unknown 1d4 3 hit points each good eating stock
- A group of cantankerous Polacanthus 1d4 30% of attacking
- Diabolically smart large Tyrannosaurus with double the normal hit points. Will stalk & kill members of the party.
- Rhedosaurus on the hunt able to track prey over a 5 mile area. Has none of the special abilities of the mutant strain8. Smaller Gojira strain out hunting prey. 60% of attacking9. A Gorgo & baby hunting for prey & are very hungry 70% of attacking. 5 hit points for the mother. 2 for the baby10. A flock Q_-_The_Winged_Serpents move quickly over head & the sky is filled with the cries of these terrible monsters. 70% of attack.
Planet of Dinosaurs might as well be set right within the Star Trek universe or a similar timeline. The technology of the Odyssey is made from the same thing as hundreds of other '70s grind house pictures. This also means its easily adaptable to your favorite retro clone game
The encounter table is done tongue firmly in cheek & I'm not going to tell you that this isn't a horrible movie.The whole thing is worth watching for the stop motion. The characters in this are victims waiting to happen but the ideas put forth are notible for two reasons. One this is is an artificial planet seeded long ago by your favorite ancients. Two this easily works as an Isle of Dread in Space.
The planet can be used as a base for a villain or as a location based adventure. Even as a Stars Without Number middle group between the gonzo & serious tones of old school space adventure.
Further the planet might serve as a duck blind in space where your favorite alien god race has hidden a dungeon 22 mile long below the core. The chooses for adventure aren't too limited with the situation even if the movie isn't the greatest. The concept is still worth looking into in my opinion as a DM.
