Trivia

The faux science on the show wasn't necessarily because of any hesitancy on the part of the production staff to be scientifically accurate (Isaac Asimov was a scientific advisor, at least on the pilot), but more because of the production realities of weekly television. They simply couldn't afford to launch and land a rocket ship every week, unless they fudged the science more than a bit. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration] Once upon a time, a junkman had a dream.
Harry Broderick: I want to build a spaceship, go to the moon, salvage all the junk that's up there, bring it back, sell it.
Narrator: So he put together a team. An ex-astronaut. A fuel expert. They built a rocketship, and they went to the moon. Who knows what they'll do next.

fun creative show....short lived program
15 May 2003 | by GURNEYRAMPARTSee all my reviews

The pilot dealt with a salvage firm building a space craft to go to the moon made from junk parts. SALVAGE 1 was about a salave firm that would go anywhere, anytime to salvage something....even to the moon to get old apollo program gear. A great idea for a string of tv movies but it ran out of gas as a tv show. Still as a boy it lit the fires of my imagination the way Buster Crabbe serials did in my grandfathers.
