Sci-fi movie about a mining/harvesting team

When I was around 14years old my dad was watching a movie on TV that took place in space about a harvesting/mining team. It was not a made for TV movie. The most distinct part of this movie was that to enter hyperspace safely the team had to enter special pods. At some point there’s a man and woman fooling around when the captain tells them they are about to enter hyperspace and to get into the pods. This is where it gets fuzzy for me— Either one of the pods malfunctions, or someone sabotages it, and the man cannot shut his pod. This causes his body to compress and liquify against the door. The puppetry and special effects of this part really made an impression on my young mind, but I have no idea what this movie is called!!! Please help me figure this one out!
