MARS MOVIE NIGHT: MARS ON TELEVISION
MEN INTO SPACE: MISSION TO MARS
"On the Moon the US and Soviets are in an informal race to be the first
to Mars. Both sides play down the need to rush with concerns about safety.
Ultimately both missions launch within minutes of each other, but a terrible
accident completely changes the game and the ultimate fate of both crews."
MEN INTO SPACE: FLIGHT TO THE RED PLANET
"The first mission to Mars is nearing the red planet when a series of
accidents and break downs put the mission in doubt. The crew must balance
the need for caution and safety against the massive amount of scientific
data that could be gained on such an expedition."
NOTE: This episode was never aired.
STAR TREK VOYAGER: ONE SMALL STEP
"Voyager encounters a graviton ellipse, a phenomenon that emerges from
subspace on rare occasions. The anomaly engulfed a manned vessel during a
Mars mission in 2032 and Chakotay is determined to retrieve the debris from
inside the ellipse. Chakotay, Paris and Seven take the Delta Flyer in, but
when an asteroid strikes, Chakotay, obsessed with retrieving the module,
disobeys Janeway's order to leave. The collision renders the Flyer
flightless as the ellipse prepares to return to subspace."

DOCTOR WHO: COLD WAR
"The Doctor and Clara find themselves dealing with Cold War tensions
when the TARDIS lands aboard a disabled Soviet ballistic submarine. The
Doctor isn't the only alien being on board however - while engaged in
undersea drilling, Professor Grisenko thought he'd found a mammoth and
brought the creature on the boat encased in ice. It isn't a mammoth but an
Ice Warrior, who has been lying dormant for 5000 years. He identifies
himself as Grand Marshal Skaldak but when he cannot contact others of his
kind, he assumes he is the last of his race. He now has every intention of starting a thermonuclear war between the superpowers and destroy Earth."
