Storyline

At an isolated military installation in Greenland, Major Brothers (Harry Guardino) has allowed one of his men to die after falling in a crevasse. Suffering from hallucinations, he goes to Dr. Hamilton (Gary Merrill). Hamilton has invented a device that allows him to read the thoughts of another person. Hamilton and Brothers connect via the device, but then a power surge causes the unthinkable: the minds of the two men switch bodies. The deranged Maj. Brothers is bent on destroying the whole base. Unfortunately, his mind is in the psychiatrist's body, and the other base workers know nothing of the mind switch. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Best Episode Since The Pilot
27 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Middle aged Gary Merrill and young Sally Kellerman do a bit of mind/personality swapping.

Best episode since the pilot! The three guest stars (Merrill, Kellerman and Harry Guardino) do a fine job of acting out this way-out drama...in the snow. The score is perfectly matched to the drama/romance of it all and this is is just an hour you will want to return to with repeat viewings.

This was the first of four great sci-fi outings with Sally Kellerman, the next would be the Limits hour The Bellero Shield, soon after Star Trek's Where No Man Has Gone Before and finally a more light hearted Kellerman in a second season episode in QM's The Invaders.

Merrill would do mighty work in The Time Tunnel pilot and a Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode titled: The Menfish.
