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

An interesting but flawed idea....
2 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Some astronauts visit another planet and accidentally contract an illness that quickly kills several of them. Those who don't die are on their way back to Earth when the doctor discovered why some died and some did not. It seems that the anti-radiation treatment some got saved them...at least temporarily. It seems that the red space dust they picked up is killing ALL of them--just the vaccinated ones are dying very, very slowly. It's very obvious that they should NOT return home, as they'd spread the illness to the planet yet, inexplicably, one of them (Lex Barker) is bent on returning home---even though there really isn't a logical reason for this. To me, it seemed like a contrived situation but had the script been re-worked it could have been excellent. As it is, it's a relatively weak show from an otherwise excellent early sci-fi anthology series.
