Trivia

This film was produced by Sunn Classic Pictures, the leading "four-wall" distributor of documentaries. Although this was a straight science fiction film, Sunn's TV spots promoted it as if it were another of their documentaries that would "reveal the truth about UFOs" even though the space shuttle which was used in the film had not yet had its first launch.

Goofs

It is difficult to believe that a linguist, however skillful, could give a detailed, one-to-one translation of an alien language, programming a computer to give instant interpretations, all in the space of a few days. See more »

Quotes

Harry Forbes: Again. Punch it in again. And make sure.
Neal Kelso: I tried three times, Harry. I keep on getting the same answer. These are all designated landing areas.
Harry Forbes: Oh my God, they're coming back!

Too Unoriginal.
24 August 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

A Schick Sunn films production, only this takes a different approach; rather than a docudrama style plot, this is more straightforward action thriller, starring Gary Collins and James Hampton as two returning astronauts forced to go on the run after the government decides to cover up a crashed UFO, and the astronauts find that they are expendable...

If the story sounds familiar, it's because it was done already(except that was a hoaxed Mars landing) in "Capricorn One", a far superior film, with better writing and pacing, though director James L. Conway does what he can with the material.

Darren McGavin plays their good friend at NASA who investigates the alien spacecraft, though is not involved in the murder plot, which is idiotic. Some camp value, but still silly.
