Plot Summary

In the 22nd Century, Ray Peterson, reporter for the Interplanetary News, is assigned to write a story aboard a space station. Tension mounts between Peterson and the station's ommander, who think he's in the way, but has orders to leave him alone. Errant spaceship, Alpha Two enters the solar system and its photon generators are radiating enough heat to destroy Earth as it approaches. It falls to Peterson to try to figure out a way to enter the spaceship, disarm the generators, and escape before suffocating. Written by Doug Sederberg

Trivia With the international (including Italy) success of large-scale, effects-laden science-fiction spectacles from Japan, such as Ishirô Honda's The Mysterians (1957) and Battle in Outer Space (1959), Italian producers had hoped to duplicate their success with this, Italy's first big space opera.
