Sensitively Done with an Excellent Message
9 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is very similar to an episode from the original series. It tells the story of a man being executed by lethal injection for the murders of several people. After being pronounced dead by the attending physician, he is awakened. He is given a choice. Take the final lethal dose, or be part of an experiment by the military. Since he realizes that the former would be suicide, he accepts the terms, although he is damned either way. It becomes obvious early on that he never committed the murders for which he was convicted and he clings to his faith. He is injected with a series of substances by a pretty young army doctor with whom he feels an affinity. The process is agonizing. The military authorities are totally insensitive to his plight, seeing him as just another lab rat. He is defiant all the way as his body is transformed into an alien form (the DNA was collected from a previous extra-terrestrial encounter). The story is gripping, as a relationship develops between the man and the doctor. It portrays the government as a fearful, kill first and ask questions later entity. This may be the best episode of the series; it not, it certainly stands out.
