Summary
Join actors from Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation as they recreate this classic radio thriller. The breathless pace and convincing details make it clear while the 1938 broadcast of an "eyewitness report" of an invasion from Mars caused a nationwide panic in 1938. Originally performed by Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre of the Air, "War of the world's" is truly the mother of all space invasions, offering a rare combination of chills, thrills and great literature. Directed by TNG's John de Lancie
