Abstract:

In pt. 1, it is the year 1999, and as the Earth faces its inevitable extinction, three star-crossed expeditions are launched toward Mars. The fate of each mission unveils another layer of the mystery that shrouds the red planet. In pt. 2, Col. John Wilder (Rock Hudson) is convinced that the Martian civilization, seemingly destroyed by germs transported from Earth, still exists in an unknown form. Many have accompanied Wilder to this planet of dreams, illusions, and hope. What awaits them is a series of strange apparitions and eerie encounters. In pt. 3, Mars becomes mankind's only hope when Earth explodes in the inferno of nuclear war. Col. John Wilder travels to an ancient Martian city where he discovers a secret that will forever alter the course of human existence. Not rated.
