Did You Know?


Early in episode #1.15, "The Voyage Home", there is a live exchange between the astronauts and Megan Halliwell at ground control. However, there should have been a couple seconds of delay between question and response, the time it takes for the radio signal to reach a spacecraft three days' travel from Earth. See more »

Alien Redux
12 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A spaceship, manned by three astronauts, is returning from a first landing on Mars. On the last day, a discovery is made of a civilization on the red planet. While investigating, a spray/explosion comes out of a sort of pod. The men are rendered unconscious for an hour or so. Because of a lack of oxygen and a deadline for departure, they must leave their discovery behind. Unfortunately for them, they allow a substance on board. This is shades of the first Alien movie. A series of mechanical problems occur, during which irrational behavior begins among the three. The ship heats up to near intolerable levels. One of the astronauts actually sees an extra-terrestrial in a chameleon-like state. The plot then turns to coming home and the implications of that voyage. This is a psychological thriller, engendered by the science fiction angle. Unfortunately, this same thing has been done numerous times in various offerings. It is not without tension and spark.
