Space Opera Film 70s-80s With Almost No Info?

Hello,

Any assitance in the name of the movie with the below plot line would be greatly appreciated.

This movie would probably fall into the Space Opera genre.  It involves a boy who leaves home and joins a group of indivdiuals that are considered the good guys.  During the movie I believe almost of all of the good guys are killed off.  I recall one of  the good characters in a forest.  I believe it was played by the female lead.  The male lead character of the film manages to get himself and the kid back in the space ship but is badly wounded.  The kid manages to somehow save the lead character's life and the hero flies the kid back home.

I believe it was filmed anywhere from the mid  70s -  mid 80s.  I do know this movie is not Enemy Mine.

 

Thank you

"The Last Starfighter" (1984)

Unfortunately it was not the Last Starfighter.  Any other suggestions?
In your other post, I suggest "Space Raiders" (1983).  It sometimes is titled "Star Child".
