ANSA PHOTO GALLERY
COLONEL GEORGE TAYLOR'S ANSA
The classic design that started it all, see the "Icarus" as it first fell from the sky, stranding Taylor, Dodge, and Landon on Earth 2000 years in the future. Images from the first 1968 movie "Planet of the Apes"
COLONEL "SKIPPER" HADDOX
and JOHN BRENT'S ANSA SPACECRAFT
A variant of the classic spacecraft design, this one is apparently a tail-lander with a tripod landing gear assembly. Something went wrong on touch down and the spacecraft caught fire, exploded, and fell over on its side never to rise again. Images from the second movie "Beneath the Planet of the Apes"
Another variant of the classic spacecraft, this one shorter, with no forward escape hatch, and displaying for the first time, a side mounted crew door. The spacecraft referred to simply as 'Taylor's ship' travels backwards in time from the future and splashes down off the coast of California, where it is recovered by a military spacecraft salvage team. Images from the third movie "Escape from the Planet of the Apes"
COLONEL ALAN VIRDON'S ANSA
This spacecraft seems to be the first that is not a variant, or rather, it is identical to the one known as "Taylor's ship" as seen in third movie and the gallery above. Images taken from the short lived television series "Planet of the Apes", Episode 1: "Escape From Tomorrow" Over 250 pictures! By far the largest gallery with the closest looks at the interior and exterior of the third and final version of the ANSA Spacecraft!
The more traditionally shaped spacecraft that took NASA astronauts Jeff, Judy, and Bill into the far future for a "Return to the Planet of the Apes". Images taken from the 1976 POTA based cartoon series
RONALD BRENT'S (NASA) SPACECRAFT
Originally seen only in one episode of the cartoon series, Colonel Ronald Brent's mysterious 21st century spacecraft has still sparked many questions. The following images are taken from the 1976 POTA based cartoon series. Brent's mysterious 21st century American spacecraft was launched nearly a hundred years after the "Venturer" left Earth yet arrived in the future several decades before the crew of the "Venturer".
The "Cassiopeia" was launched in 2125 and was the first long duration space mission. It fell out of communications and all hands onboard were considered lost. Until now... Join Ulysses, Romulus, Sophie, and Martinez as they are flung through space and time in the UBISOFT produced PC computer game "PLANET OF THE APES", relive the classic story of the 1968 movie "PLANET OF THE APES", retold in an updated contemporary format, the way Tim Burton's movie SHOULD have been.
NOTE: Each of these galleries contain many large pictures and may take a while to load. Please be patient.
