Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Part one of Earth*Star Voyager was first telecast January 17, 1988, on the Disney Sunday Movie anthology. The year is 2088: the Earth*Star Voyager blasts off on a 26-year-misson to find another planet able to support life. The space vessel's crew consists largely of teenagers (the oldest crewperson is 24). Intellectually, they're ready for the adventure: but no one has taken into consideration their emotional maturity. All sorts of unexpected dangers face the Voyager as Part One draws to its cliff-hanging close (see separate entry for details on Part Two).Duncan Regehr, Brian McNamara, Jason Michas, Julia Montgomery, Tom Breznahan and Peter Donat head the cast.
