English Summary:

The Martian Chronicles is a 1980 television miniseries based on Ray Bradbury's 1950 book The Martian Chronicles and dealing with the exploration of Mars and the inhabitants there. The series starred Rock Hudson, Darren McGavin, Bernadette Peters, Roddy McDowall, Fritz Weaver, Barry Morse, and Maria Schell. It was aired on NBC in January 1980 in three episodes with a total running time of just over four hours (nearly five hours on the DVD version). The series depicts Mars as having a "thin atmosphere" which humans can breathe with water-filled canals and desert-like vegetation. The miniseries was directed by Michael Anderson and written by Richard Matheson.

 

The Settlers

Episode 2, 28 January 1980

In the second episode, Wilder returns to the Red Planet in February 2004 with an entire fleet of spaceships, having been appointed director of the American colonization of Mars. In six months, a dozen communities are laid down. These sites, named after the Zeus mission astronauts, include: "York Plain," "Blackville," "Wilder Mountain," "Spender Hill," "Briggs Canal," and "Lustig Creek." The colonies grow rapidly over the next two years with varying amounts of success, as the colonists bring the vices of Earth (greed, corruption, bureaucracy) with them.

In September 2006, the Martian colonists start to encounter strange phenomena. David Lustig, presumed dead six years ago with the rest of Earth's Second Expedition to Mars, returns to his parents in Lustig Creek. Peculiarly, he expresses an intense aversion to visiting First Town, the chief colony on Mars. When forced to visit by his parents anyway, he suddenly goes missing. At the same time, a group of missionaries, called Father Peregrine and Father Stone, is rescued from a landslide by a group of mysterious lights who claim to be the "Old Ones." They claim themselves to be non-corporeal Martians from over 250 million years ago who live in the hills, supposedly among God. Father Peregrine later sees a vision of Jesus Christ in his church in First Town, but the vision requests him to go away with words "I am not what I seem! I am not that vision!" With the Martian's insistence, Peregrine concludes that the vision is actually Martian who involuntarily appears as anybody other people have in mind: David Lustig, Jesus, or anybody else. Once chased by Colonel Wilder and other settlers, the Martian is surrounded by the residents of First Town. Under telepathic pressure to fulfill these multiple roles simultaneously, he dies and his body disappears. Meanwhile, nuclear war is imminent on Earth. Congress cuts the budget for space exploration, all flights to Mars are canceled, and the colony is evacuated.

The final scene of the episode focuses on Sam Parkhill, the only survivor, apart from Wilder, of the third Zeus mission. He has opened a hamburger bar on Mars with his wife, intending to serve future truckers. A lone Martian suddenly walks in, prompting Parkhill to panic and shoot him. Suddenly, numerous Martians appear in sand ships. Parkhill takes his wife to his very own sand ship and flees. The Martians catch up after Parkhill has shot a number of them, giving Parkhill a land grant to half of Mars and a message: "The night is tonight." Unfortunately, the fleet of ten thousand rockets filled with one hundred thousand "hungry customers" would not be coming that night to patronize his restaurant, as instead the nuclear war destroyed Earth in one fell swoop

 

Hungarian Summary:

Az emberiség régi álma válik valóra, amikor az első űrhajó a Marsra érkezik. A szonda nem talál életre utaló jeleket. Ám ha néhány kilométerrel arrébb ért volna földet, egész más hírek-kel tért volna haza... Több évtizeddel később már emberek is érkez-nek a vörös bolygó felfedezésére. Egy marsbéli nő erotikus álmaiban előre látja a Zeus-1 űrhajó érkezését. Amikor a földlakók megérkeznek, az asszony féltékeny férje azonnal végez az űrhajó utasaival. A Zeus-2 sem jár sokkal több szerencsével. A gondolatolvasásra képes Mars-lakók kifürkészik az űrhajósok emlékeit és tőrbe csalják őket, hogy az emberiség ne tehesse tönkre bolygójukat. Amikor viszont a Zeus-3 megérkezik a Marsra, már csak halott Marslakókat talál. A korábbi expedíciók egy, az ember számára szinte ártalmatlan, a Marslakókra nézve azonban végzetes vírust hurcolnak be: a bárányhimlőt...
