After this film was released, screenwriter Ib Melchior and Victor Lundin collaborated on a script called Columbus of the Stars. which they presented to Paramount. It was similar to Star Trek, complete with illustrations similar to the Enterprise. Some time later, Star Trek went into production. Lundin does not claim that his ideas were borrowed by Paramount.

As we get closer to traveling to other planets, this is one story that could wind up being real. This story pretty much follows the original Robinson Crusoe story, only it takes place on another planet and not on a desert island. Paul Mantee puts in a credible performance as the astronaut who must learn how to cope without being around his fellow man. The scene that is especially interesting is when he hallucinates after getting food poisoning and seeing his dead fellow crew member. This shows the effect that isolation can have on a person and how it can drive a person mad. Luckily he did find a companion in the alien he named Friday. I recommend this film heartily.
