By Raymond F. Jones
In 1949 and 1950 a technology fiction serial by way of Raymond F. Jones seemed in exciting ask yourself tales. inside of part a decade that serial may make heritage because the foundation of the 1st technology fiction motion picture approximately interstellar shuttle and interstellar struggle. the following Hollywood motion picture to enterprise to a different sunlight method was once Forbidden Planet, a totally unique build of the status studio MGM. yet good, trustworthy common Studios was once there first...long sooner than superstar Trek.
