This two-season series details the adventures of the three crew and
four passengers of the sub-orbital spacecraft Spindrift. They are
drawn through a space warp that crashes them onto a planet where
everything is 12 times normal size. The castaways struggle to repair
their damaged craft and somehow get back to Earth while being hunted
by the totalitarian government that rule the planet.
The first episode is the pilot titlted THE CRASH- The Spindrift,
Suborbital Flight 612 NY to London, hits a space warp and crashes in
a strange fog, apparently back on Earth. After pilots Steve and Dan
are almost run over by a giant-sized car, they realize something is
amiss. As they prepare to take off, they are picked up by a giant
boy but manage to escape. With their power cells low, they land
again. Fitzhugh, an embezzler tries to escape but loses his money to
a giant cat. Valerie follows Steve and both are captured by a giant
Fitzhugh threatens Dan with a gun to force him to lift off, but Dan
calls his bluff and he and Mark go after their captured comrades.
Mark creates a diversion which gives Dan time to free the captives,
and they escape. The rest of the passengers provide a distraction
when the giant chases after them, but they escape in a sewer pipe
into a junkyard, where they just manage to avoid a giant-sized dog
Next is GHOST TOWN- Chased by a giant tramp, Barry is knocked out by
an electrical force field. When Fitzhugh and Valerie come back with
the others, he is gone. They manage to get through the force field,
which is turned back on behind them. They then find themselves in
what seems to be an Earth-sized (i.e., normal for them)
old-fashioned town that is mysteriously absent of people.
The next episode is FRAMED- While in a park trying to recover the
lens from a giant camera to power their solar batteries, Steve and
Fitzhugh witness the photographer accidentally kill his model during
a struggle. He spots them and they flee down a gopher hole, only for
him to try to kill them with smoke. A hobo wanders by and puts out
the fire, then passes out. The photographer frames him for the
murder. For reasons best known to himelf, Steve tries to bring the
real culprit to justice.
