A malfunction in space threatens lives.
6 February 2008 | by (Washington State, USA) – See all my reviews

A remote controlled atomic powered rocket is launched on a first test flight into space. It malfunctions and veers off course toward the moon, on a collision course with a moon base. Only half of the twenty men there can be evacuated in time. Col. McCauley and the scientist who designed the ship launch to rendezvous with the ship and attempt to disarm it's atomic engine. It's a two-man job, but the scientist is injured and McCauley must do it alone. It comes down to a guess. A wrong guess will set off an atomic explosion.

My least favorite episode so far (first five,) but it's still fun. Nice space effects again. This was the second time in the series so far that lives were threatened by a malfunctioning remote controlled rocket.
