Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Though it runs a scant two hours, the made-for-TV Earth*Star Voyager was originally telecast in two parts. Both were shown as installments of The Disney Sunday Movie. In Part One, telecast January 17, 1988, we were introduced to the very young crew of the 21st-century space vessel Earth*Star Voyager. They'd just embarked on a 26-year mission to locate another inhabitable planet. In Part Two, which first aired January 24, 1988, the crew members stumble across the wreckage of an earlier space vehicle and come to the aid of an endangered alien/human mutant. "A deadly rendezvous. A dangerous collision. The adventure of a lifetime" read the film's original print ads. Duncan Regehr, Brian McNamara and Julia Montgomery star.
