A live taping of the
Channels Seeing Ear Theater
of Television & Radio
in New York.
A lethargic alien commander
(Walter Koenig, Chekhov of Star Trek)
makes his planets first contact with Earth by overhearing a transmission
of an attack by Martians.
His over-ambitious cadet (Paul Singleton)
wants to investigate the signals.
But is it a real attack theyre hearing
or the 1939 radio
broadcast of Orson Welles The War of the Worlds?
