This was never released as a feature film but, instead, is comprised of 3 episodes from the TV series, Rocky Jones, Space Ranger (1954) which were edited together and released on video as a feature-length story.
It was still believed in 1956 that people would pass out at a G Force of only 4.6 when pilots today routinely reach 9 Gs. See more »

I had one helping of this group in the "Crash of the Moons." This one continues when a couple of missiles strike earth and Rocky and the gang go to find out where they are coming from. They end up on a moon of Jupiter which is perfect for their survival. They are lucky to land because they have run out of gas. At least their gas gauge says so. This time they start with uniforms of more the rebel variety of the Civil War. But later don baseball caps. It's a long, convoluted effort to try to recreate a fuel source (there's no Texaco anywhere near). Like those dilithium crystals, there is a fuel source available to them. Unfortunately, holed up on the planet is a murderous turncoat who has the ear of the leader of the planet. He enlists some other rebellious types that appear in the early part of the movie (which is actually a series of TV shows). Rocky Jones never seems to have much trouble staving off the bad guys. He gets an assist from a little space girl who helps his little space guy. The young woman, who never seems to do anything, gets involved in the fashion on the Jupiter moon. Eventually, everything works out. Rocky and Winky (who screws up a lot, but sure is a swell fella), manage to keep things safe for the space alliance or whatever. If anything can show you how far we've come when it comes to film and television, get a load of this.
