Storyline

The first human mission to another solar system loses 2 crew on a red dust-covered planet, which once had an advanced civilization. Due to allergies, neither of the shipmates got anti-radiation shots, so the remaining crew aren't concerned about their own return to Earth. But then the red dust starts to appear everywhere on the space ship. Written by David Stevens

Another Space Downer
6 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the wake of the previous episode, we have almost exactly the same theme. Here, a trio of astronauts are all that's left after a mysterious red dust infiltrates their space ship. They have brought it back from a planet where the civilization was wiped out. They are alive for the time being because of some anti-radiation shots. The have a serious dilemma. They can live up to fifteen years, carrying this disease, but infecting earth upon their return. The question is whether scientists on earth would be able to come up with a solution. So these men begin to act in a manner appropriate to their situation. One interesting factor is the character played by Lex Barker. He is a playboy who begins to count his years and think of all the randy activity he can perform in that time. Lex Barker, of course, was Tarzan in the fifties movies. He is really unlikeable here and yet we can feel their pain.
