Ed Nelson stars as Colonel Luke Stone, leader of a multinational team of Earth soldiers who have been captured by the Ebonites and taken to Ebon, an alien planet that they are at war with. The chief interrogator(played by John Anderson) takes each man of the team one by one for questioning, including an overly emotional Private Dix(played by Martin Sheen) and ultra calm Major Jong(played by James Shigeta). The men are tricked and prodded into giving them information, but just what is the nightmarish truth at the heart of this ordeal? Stunning episode may be the best of the series, with a provocative, intelligent script, lively direction, fine acting, effective makeup/costume of the Ebons(quite memorable) and the stark, bare sets that lead to a brilliant twist ending that ranks with anything that Rod Serling may have thought up.
