Storyline

Aliens plan to take over the U.S. by recruiting disaffected loners who are themselves "invisible" to normal society. The alien crab-like creatures attach themselves to human hosts and control them. The recruits are assigned low-level jobs of highly appointed government officials so they can get the alien in close proximity to them. A U.S intelligence agent infiltrates the alien organization, but it may be too late. Written by David Stevens

Gov. Hillerman talks about the birth of the aliens, saying it happened a billion, billion years ago. The universe itself is not quite 14 billion years old, making that impossible. See more »

This is probably the best....
23 July 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is my vote for the best show of the entire series. In fact, it might have made a great pilot episode for its own series. I know that some spin off shows were made for "The Outer Limits" but none were picked up by the networks.

Don Gordon stars in this episode as a government agent who has infiltrated a secret organization of evil. It's purpose is to take over the world by inserting weird alien beings into the bodies of unsuspecting government officials. It's a lot like "Invasions of the Body Snatchers" as well as the "Star Trek the Next Generation" episode "Conspiracy"--so perhaps it isn't 100% original--but it is expertly, well-acted and compelling throughout. In addition, it's darn scary and didn't need great special effects or especially scary monsters, as the story itself was the star.

By the way, look for the particularly good performance by Neil Hamilton as well as a nice cameo by Richard Dawson. Both did great jobs (particularly Hamilton) and were in top form.
