Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet

Synopsis: In 2020, after the colonization of the moon, the spaceships Vega, Sirius and Capella are launched from Lunar Station 7. They are to explore Venus under the command of Professor Hartman, but an asteroid collides and explodes Capella. The leader ship Vega stays orbiting and sends the astronauts Kern and Sherman with the robot John to the surface of Venus, but they have problems with communication with Dr. Marsha Evans in Vega. The Sirius lands in Venus and Commander Brendan Lockhart, Andre Ferneau and Hans Walter explore the planet and are attacked by prehistoric animals. They use a vehicle to seek Kern and Sherman while collecting samples from the planet. Meanwhile John helps the two cosmonauts to survive in the hostile land.

Professor Hartman, I'm positive I can handle it.

So am I, doc.

Who's that?

Sherman, professor. Didn't anyone ever tell ya

ladies are tougher than men?

You're quite right, Sherman.

Perhaps I did forget.

Permission granted.

Thank you, Professor Hartman. I will contact

you again with a progress report at 0400 hours.

Commander Lockhart, Vega's calling.


We've received permission to land, to be followed by the Sirius.

Well, now. And just how do you suggest

we manage that?

- Marsha will stay and keep Vega in orbit -

- It's her job.

But it sounds like it's all set.

Kern's robot calculated the details.

If you're sure, let's get moving on it.


I'm ready, Skipper.

I'm with you also.

Sherman, make room for a spaceship.

I'll join you there.


Good luck.

See you on Venus.

Pressure reading on planet's surface...

Two and three.

No sign of opening.

Cloud formations, thirty percent ash content.

I see something.

A spot of red glowing with great brilliance.

Right through the spectrums.

Spot of red could be Hades.

We are now gathering all possible data

in preparation for landing.

However, no observation from orbit can let us know

the answer to the most important question...

...we've come to ask of Venus.

Does life in any form exist on this planet?

And if so, what kind?

I personally doubt if any does, my dear Marsha.

A planet of fire below us.

This is a new world, or will it consume us all?

Suppose that vibrant spot could be a city or something?

Attention, Sirius. Attention, Sirius.

Sherman, Kern and Automaton John,

ready to embark at 0100 hours.

I envy you, Sherman.

And you Kern.

To be the first humans to set foot on Venus.

We wish you all a success.

I envy you both. Good luck.
