An episode that's more "Outer Limits" than "Sci-Fi Theater"
12 March 2015 | by jcaynon-91303See all my reviews

This episode is somewhat unique in comparison to the other Science Fiction Theater episodes because the military apparatus here seems more interested in trying to assist the alien spacecraft and its occupants rather than blowing them out the sky as a potential risk to our world's security.

A young Deforest Kelly (Star Trek's Dr. McCoy) plays a military physician in this story, too! So it's worth it just to see him in a similar role as his most famous character.

Rather than succumb to the suspicion of anything alien or communist as do most of the characters in the other episodes, this little outing, although somewhat disappointing in the pay-off at the end of the show, is a worthy effort for this period of time on television.
