Storyline

Scientists working on induced hibernation for space travel are killed, apparently by machines acting independently. Security agent Sheppard arrives at the secret underground space research base to investigate possible sabotage. He finds that the whole base is coordinated by supercomputer NOVAC and its robots Gog and Magog; and a strange aircraft is detected high overhead. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

When Richard Egan's character first reports to the underground laboratory, his I.D. card is compared to his record they have on file. The two cards are placed on the glass plate of a large slide projector and projected on to a wall. You can see the technician move the cards but the image on the wall doesn't move. Then he removes Egan's card to return it to him but the image remains on the wall. See more »

Gog the Dalek Prototype?
22 October 2001 | by (Philly, PA) – See all my reviews

Yes, I saw this as a kid during the Saturday Matinee era. Have seen it a few times on TV, and recorded a copy. I also enjoyed the early "Doctor Who" broadcasts. I wonder if the Doctor Who set designers were influenced by Gog and Magog when they conceived the Daleks? Think about it: Both robots were mobile via treads/rollers (no artificial legs); both robots have a similar body shape; both have a single, grasping arm, and both have a flamethrower-type arm. Coincidence?
