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.

They do not take Steve and Lew into custody, sequester them, or put any kind of pressure on them not to make waves, even after Steve and Lew indirectly cause the deaths of two government agents. This seems to be the worst possible way to cover up a story, as it all but guarantees the two heroes will make trouble. See more
