Doug and Tony escape death aboard the Titanic only to be hurled ten years into their future aboard a rocket bound for the moon. Problems arise which the astronauts blame on their unwilling stowaways, but the real cause is a saboteur aboard the flight - and the same man, ten years earlier, is in the TicToc complex with a confederate! Doug and Tony must discover the identity of the traitor and stop his plans or else die in space. Written by CommanderBalok

Engaging in the 60's, Dated in 2009
12 September 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Doug and Tony jumps to 1978, therefore ten years ahead of their future, on board of the service module of a rocket of project MEM4, in the countdown to head to Mars in a space race with the Soviets. Their overweight does not allow the rocket to reach the escape velocity and the skipper intends to jettison the module; however the speed is reached and the crew formed by Colonel Kane, Major Harlow, Ensign Beard and officer Nazarro discover them and they are considered stowaways. The scientists explain that they are part of the Time Tunnel TicToc Project, and Major Harlow tells that had heard something about this secret project. When the crewman Nazarro discovers that the communication systems had been sabotaged, they blame Doug and Tony while heading to the moon for refueling due to the overburn to reach the necessary velocity. Meanwhile General Heywood Kirk invites three representatives of the MEM4 project to com to The Time Tunnel complex, and one of them is the same Navy Ensign Beard that is one board of the rocket. But neither the personnel of the Time Tunnel nor the crew of the rocket knows that Beard is a traitor.

"One Way to the Moon" was an engaging episode in the 60's with the climax of the Cold War, James Bond, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and many other espionage movies. However, in 2009, both the plot of race against Soviets and the theme of reaching Mars in a rocket are dated. Fortunately the story has no contradiction, since Beard does not see his fate in the future due to the explosion of the control panel and the manhunt to the other traitor. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Túnel do Tempo" ("The Time Tunnel")
