Original Movie Screenplay by Tom Wakefield
CAST OF MAIN CHARACTERS

Lieutenant Jack Evans: Naval Academy grad finds the adventure he has yearned for -- perhaps more than he bargained for.

Sergeant "Pudge" McCain: Was twelve days away from the end of his enlistment -- twelve days away from an idyllic life of and hunting and fishing.

Corporal Vincent Petit: A smallish man from Peoria who believes that a chest full of ribbons will prove his worth.

Lance Corporal Lan Ortiz: A street-wise kid from Mexico City who joined the Corps in a court plea-bargain.

Seaman Shawn Penders: Joined the Navy for a job near a "tubular beach." Little did he know the Navy supplies corpsmen to the Marine Corps. Much to his disliking, the stereotypical surfer dude who is scared of heights finds himself attached to the most "gung ho" unit in the U.S. military.

Svetlana Ulnovich: Both seductress and sophisticate, she is Earth's foremost expert in Einstein's unified field theory. She must accompany the daring mission to Mars. But is she actually in league with the Soviets? Fan favorite Jeri Ryan of Star Trek's Voyager would be perfect for the part.

General Ivan Trotsky: Leader of the Red Planet. A cold-blooded monster in every sense of the word; ruthless, a rapist, and demented. Seeks to destroy life on Earth so that he can recolonize it with genetically superior Russians.

Catherine Trotsky: Abused wife of Ivan Trotsky. Dreams of someday returning to Earth with her young son Alex.

Marishka Tazari: Leader of the Resistance, a group of refugees from the Soviet colony living in a secret Martian underground complex. An ex-fighter pilot in the Red Planet's Soviet Air Force, her greatest fear is returning to the Soviet colony where she suffered both physical and sexual abuse at the hands of Ivan Trotsky.
