Trivia

In one photo taken of the planet a monster is shown rising from sand. It is the same monster used in the episode The Outer Limits: The Invisible Enemy (1964) which had been broadcast the week before. See more »

Goofs

As Patrick O'Neal walks past a mirror, the head and shoulders of an off-camera crew member can be seen reflected for a few seconds before he ducks down out of sight. Then, just before the scene ends, the crew member raises his head back up so that we see his reflection in the mirror once more. See more »

Patrick O'Neal stars as scientist John Meredith, who has managed to build an enclosed miniaturized clone of a planet in the nearby star system of Wolf 359. He seeds it with human DNA in an effort to speed up the planet's evolution, roughly 1 second equals eleven minutes Earth time. The experiment appears to be a success until a mysterious ghost-bat like creature emerges, striking fear in his wife(played by Sara Shane) and his colleagues, before finally coming after him. Just what is the creature, and what does it want? Ambitious story here, with some big scientific and philosophical ideas at work, though dramatically it isn't as compelling as it should be, with too little action. Still worthwhile though.
