Moscow-Cassiopeia Synopsis

When radio signals reach Earth from a planet in a far distant star system, the starship Dawn is readied for immediate dispatch to search for signs of intelligent life. But as the ship will take decades to reach the planet, a young inventor proposes that a group of the best and brightest schoolchildren be sent in place of adult cosmonauts, as they will reach the planet in their prime of life. But naturally, things don't go quite as planned. . . .

The first part of Richard Viktorov's "Kids in Space" epic (followed by Adolescents in the Universe) is pure adolescent wish-fulfillment, as the valiant young band of intergalactic explorers must prove that they are as tough, smart and resourceful as any grown-ups.

Before there was Star Trek the movie there was Moscow Cassiopeia and a couple other Soviet sci-fi and space sage movies like Adolescents in the Universe. The production design is pretty impressive and so are the plot and acting performances of the young space crew. It was quite engrossing to watch and undoubtedly a good old sci-fi movie to watch with the whole family.

An engrossing film from the Soviet Union that tackles a space adventure featuring smart and independent teenagers.  The costumes are great and the locations used are quite credible enough as well as the over-all production design. The musical scoring was also interesting. As these young people go on a space journey to Alpha Cassiopeia that will take them around 27 years,  things go awry and it's where the true adventure begins.  Worth checking out!
