Storyline

Capt. Roger Kimbro leads the starship Archipelago and it's crew on a mission to a distant planet. They are there to plant a device on the planet but before they can complete the mission, they're attacked. The planet was supposed to be uninhabited but they awaken in a chamber made by the Ebonites, aliens they once fought in a war. One by one, they are questioned and tortured. The package they were to deliver is a super weapon, a doomsday device to be exploded on an uninhabited planet to show their enemies what they now had. When one of them gets access to the device, she activates it but learns too late where she is. Written by garykmcd

Better Get Those Fail-Safes in Place
5 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is really painful to watch as a group of military people are tortured and prodded. They were on board a space ship that crashed and are now under the control of a deep-voiced overlord who brings them in one at a time for interrogation. He also plants seeds of dissension among them so that they begin to threaten and distrust. What is hardest to watch are the scenes of torture and pain. These aliens also have the ability to cause blindness and other maladies. The crew are all trained in different ways and have what appears incredible resolve. The Captain tries to keep everyone in line, but eventually chaos ensues. Some of them have worked together for good and have trusted each other. This is a new version of one of the old Outer Limits episodes. It is well worth watching for what eventually happens. There is little subtlety here.
