Before Simmons is about to take up his travel position in Zantors craft for the voyage back to Earth, he asks Zantor (Christopher Lee) to go first. As Zantor lies down you can clearly see his long white wig fall off revealing his natural dark hair. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Commissioner Simmonds: Alright, just a minute. Well, once again, I've sat in at a command conference and listened to a cozy round of self congratulations. Aren't we doing well? Hmm? Adapting, adjusting, coming to terms. And, once again, I am shocked that we've not discussed a serious attempt to locate Earth and return there.

great story with great acting
11 June 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Some kind of space ship crashes on the moon near moonbase Alpha. Soon they are trying to open the spacecraft and are trying to rescue those aliens, but one of them dies by accident. Not knowing how they would react they are lucky that those visitors do come in peace and were out to find earth.

This episode is really great. You've got two stories combined, the one with the visitors and the Commissioner who see his change to go back to earth if those visitors would leave the base. The aliens agree to have one human who will travel with them for 75 years to reach earth. But will it turn out as it should be?

This is really great. But it's the master of the foreign race that makes this excellent. Christopher Lee do plays the leader. And he does it will coolness just like he did with Dracula. And just have a look when he comes out of his cage, they way he rises did make me think of Halloween (1978) when Michael is standing up from the floor. I guess John Carpenter has seen this episode. Still, this is worth watching for two reasons, Lee and the story itself.
