Opening Monologue
25 July 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this program live in 1953 at age 10 and was totally engrossed. I still remember the opening monologue. " (These are tales of) the infinitesimal lives of men dedicated to the planet Earth and it's perilous SPACE COMMAND".

I recall that they landed on Mars and found the remains of a space ship from an advanced civilization. On the ship they found a SPACE WARP TURBINE still in working order which allowed them to travel to other solar systems.

I also recall that they travelled to a planet that turned out to be alive and the lead character fell into a hole and was engulfed by the vines of a tree, which looked suspiciously like ropes with a few leaves tied to them. Such was live TV in 1953.
