Storyline

David and Edgar intercept an alien en route to a regeneration station, and discover that he is a leader, a powerful figure in the alien hierarchy! But without regeneration he will not last the length of a trip to Washington. And, his people manage to surround David and trap him in a small cabin, the home of poet Cyrus Stone and his niece Claudia. Claudia resents that David has dragged her family into this, even after she sees an alien die the fiery death of his kind when on Earth. David tries to figure out how to get word to a nearby military base, while the aliens strive to recover their leader. Written by CommanderBalok

One more time,David Vincent fails...

What I love in this TV show, is that the hero is not always a winner at all. Sometimes he does it, and sometimes he doesn't. This episode directed by the vet Lewis Allen is Worth, really. Our lead intends to bring an alien leader to the proper authorities, and he is pursued by the invaders who try all their best to prevent him in his project. Don't expect a sort of ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13. No, it's not a winning tale at all. I won't spoil it any further, but I guess you have already got what I meant.

We find here the late Karen Black, who made here one of her her early appearances, and also the late Lawrence Naismith.

I love this TV show, miles away from all the super heroes stories.
