Cast & Crew
Dr. Joe Burke heads a British scientific project seeking to establish communication with living beings on other planets. After 4 years and thousands of pounds spent with no results, Burke and his staff members, Sandy Lund and Ben Keller, are strictly reined by Dr. Henry Shore, director of the observatory and chief opponent of the project. Although Burke eventually receives faint signals from an unidentified planet in the asteroid belt, Shore remains dubious. Suddenly all lights in the laboratory black out, caused by the descent of an alien spaceship towards Earth. The ship transports the building and its inhabitants through space to another planet where a robot tests the scientists to determine their intelligence. The robot then leads the group to another alien planet where green humanoid savages, who were once highly civilized humans, are planning to inflict a similar fate on the remaining civilized planets. Burke and his colleagues are held captive, but their scientific knowledge enables them to destroy the savages' spaceships and transport themselves back to Earth.
