Nightflyers is a novella by George R. R. Martin, from when he appeared in the pages of Analog and wrote science fiction. Some great stuff from that era, and I recommend that fans of Game of Thrones who are waiting for the next book or the next season would take a look.
Nightflyers was a so-so movie that appeared post-Star Wars as part of the mini-boom that generated a number of low to mid-budget films (Galaxy of Terror, anyone?). Most are forgotten today, but there is some gold in there (whether it is comedy gold is up to you).
Nightflyers is coming as a television series. Not sure how this will all work (especially as some reports are that is based more on that movie than the story, but...).
Nightflyers is out in two new editions, including an illustrated edition.
Over at Tor Dot Com, some of the history of Nightflyers.
