    Two 1970’s TV pilots from STAR TREK creator Gene Roddenberry — GENESIS II and the follow-up PLANET EARTH— arrive on DVD for the first time ever on October 6, exclusively from the Warner Archive Collection. GENESIS II (1973) Director: John Llewellyn Moxey Cast: Alex Cord, Harvey Jason, Mariette Hartley, Percy Rodrigues, Ted Cassidy Genre: Fantasy Adventure, Sci-Fi/Fantasy Screen Aspect: 4 X 3 Full Frame Run Time: 74 minutes Price: $19.95 “My name is Dylan Hunt. My story begins the day on which I died.” Gene Roddenberry brings fans another enthralling tale of the future. Set in a time between now and the era of the starship Enterprise, GENESIS II follows Hunt (Alex Cord), who awakes after 154 years of suspended animation into a post-apocalyptic world that’s torn between the peace-loving citizens of Pax and the militaristic, mutant Tyranians. Both want Hunt to join their cause. But the Tyranians have two cruel weapons to persuade Hunt: a device of torture called a stim. And an alluring mutant (Mariette Hartley) with two navels… and one ice-cold heart.

    PLANET EARTH (1974) Director: Marc Daniels Cast: Diana Muldaur, John Saxon Genre: Drama, Sci-Fi/Fantasy Screen Aspect: 16 X 9 Run Time: 74 minutes Price: $19.95 Women rule. Men cower. Then one man rebels. The time: the 22nd century. The place: the Confederacy, a matriarchy where men are enslaved and impotent. The hero: Dylan Hunt (John Saxon), a handsome, vigorous 20th-century scientist awakened from suspended animation – just the “breeder” a Confederacy dominatrix (Diana Muldaur) has been waiting for! In this sequel to GENESIS II, Gene Roddenberry puts a reverse spin on women’s lib in an action-filled tale set in a gleaming world of futuristic cities, underground sub shuttles, palm-sized computers and skintight uniforms. Can Hunt defy the Confederacy and free his downtrodden fellow males, or is he doomed to slavery on PLANET EARTH?
