A stranded team of soldiers are captured and experimented on by demonic looking aliens.
Did You Know?
This episode, which was one of John Erman
's earliest jobs as a director, depicts Earth soldiers who have been captured and are being tormented by aliens on a mostly barren set consisting of a few rock-like props and doorways. It bears many striking similarities to the third season episode of Star Trek: The Empath
(1968), also directed by Erman. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (and the Empath, played by Kathryn Hays) spend the majority of that episode on a mostly bare set consisting of a few props and dark curtains, also being tormented by aliens. See more
We are not at war here. The grief and loss we caused your planet was an accident. We promised we would do anything to rectify this unforgivable mistake. But we cannot sanction the continuation of such immoral and inhuman experimentation.
Inhuman? What do you know of humans, sir?
