This collection includes the first three stories from season one of Dan Dare’s Audio Adventures and the feature New Worlds, containing the work of film composer Imran Ahmad.
Voyage to Venus
Brilliant test pilot Dan Dare is chosen to fly the Anastasia – a new experimental spacecraft – on its maiden voyage to Venus. This isn’t exploration – it is to make first contact with a mysterious civilisation that has sent technological secrets as a goodwill gesture. However, what Dan, Digby and Professor Peabody find on Venus isn’t goodwill but a terrifyingly intelligent, coldhearted ruler, the Mekon. A creature destined to become Dan Dare’s nemesis – and Earth’s greatest threat.
The Red Moon Mystery
Unable to return to Earth, Dan Dare and the crew of the Anastasia head to Mars, where Dan’s estranged uncle Ivor is part of a team working on a top-secret archaeological dig. But when they find the base wrecked and the scientists missing, Dare, Digby and Professor Peabody soon discover that the Red Planet is not nearly as dead as everyone thought and that Ivor’s expedition has woken an army of deadly insect creatures that threaten to swarm the Earth. Dare must stop the aliens, but can he resort to genocide in order to save the human race?
Marooned on Mercury
When a distress call summons the crew of the Anastasia to the wilderness of Mercury, they are reunited with their old ally Sondar. He tells them of the beleaguered Mercurians who are held in thrall to the Mekon! The exiled Mekon is rallying his forces, plotting a desperate revenge against his former home world of Venus and his hated enemy, Colonel Dan Dare!
