When Commander Adams and his crew are sent to investigate why there were no communications from a previous mission to a planet explored 20 years earlier by scientists, he finds only two survivors, Dr. Morbius and his daughter. Unknown to Adams, Morbius has made a discovery, a discovery of great power, and has no intention of sharing it with anyone.

Discussions are led by Mark Daniels and Eric Cohen, who are both passionate about science fiction and co-teach Flying Saucer Cinema, a classic sci-fi film class at North Seattle College. Daniels is also a longtime volunteer at Scarecrow Video and guest host on the podcast Treks in Sci-Fi, while Cohen has been leading a psychotronic film club for years.
