Trivia

This was the second time that the character of "Dylan Hunt" was used in a Roddenberry pilot, the first being "Genesis II" starring Alex Cord as the lead character. He would show up once more in the somewhat successful syndicated series "Andromeda" starring former "Hercule:The Legendary Stories"s" star Kevin Sorbo.' There were many parallels drawn between the character Dylan Hunt and "Buck Rodgers". See more »

Sex, mutants, AND GOOD INTENTIONS!
16 December 2005 | by (Brisbane) – See all my reviews

If you're an obscure-movie buff like me, find "Planet Earth" and watch it. I loved it. It's sexually suggestive, it's got mutants, underground trains connecting the whole Earth, mystics and doctors and it's totally entertaining. John Saxon as Dylan Hunt is very expressive, and I swear I could watch it again and again. In a way, it's very much a prequel to Enterprise and follows suit with the usual Roddenberry ideologies. In fact, all the acting is good. Look for Gene Roddenberry's wife in the face of extras, as well as a few other recognizables. Diana Muldaur (who later played Dr Pulanski in The Next Generation) is very attractive as the domineering slave-trader and I find myself envying John Saxon in certain parts of the film - well, see for yourself! A great 60 minute flick!
