mission control center with chairs and control panels for about ten seated Audio-Animatronic "technicians" whose 
backs are to the audience. Facing the audience is the Audio-Animatronic flight director Mr. Johnson (voiced by radio 
& TV announcer George Walsh) who shows film clips and explains how man has made numerous advances in 
space travel. After the pre-show, guests board their spacecraft - a circular theater with stadium-like seating featuring 
circular flat screens on the ceiling and floor. Third Officer Collins (voiced by veteran Pete Renoudet) serves as the 
guests' in-flight narrator.
