Running out of fuel, astronauts Meyers, Webber and Kirby land their spaceship on a remote asteroid in 2185. They find the place quite Earth-like with buildings and people but after looking around begin to wonder where everyone is. The first place they come to is a farm where they can find no one. No one, that is, until they see a farmer gazing off into the distance. They approach him, tap him on the shoulder and try talking to him, but realize he is nothing more than a statue........ and so it begins.
Interestingly while I ponder as to the notion that that these might be the same suits as seen in Destination Moon, I find that Wikipedia is more than happy to point out that the equipment seen in the space ship was from Forbidden Planet. Fancy that!
