Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This routine science-fiction saga concerns the crew of a rocket ship slated to travel to the red planet Mars. Mike (Darren McGavin) is the chief pilot who is assisted by the navigator Nick (Nick Adams). Using several scenes containing stock footage of McDonnell Air Force Base and Cape Kennedy, the crew takes off for their destination. Alice (Shirley Parker) is the wife who worries her husband Nick may not return. The action plods along for an hour, building to a climax in the final 27 minutes. The Forum Quorum provides the rock music for the feature, which supposedly was the last for Nick Adams before his sudden death at an early age. This feature is the initial film shot at Studio City in Miami, Florida.
