This episode doesn't have that much to offer. There aren't really any effects to spot, the mystery itself lays in the fact that a new born turns really fast into a 5 year old boy who's deaf. But the people on the base accept the child without any concern what is really wrong with him. After a few days the child is a full grown man and starts to take over the base by controlling the insiders.

Soon the base is taken over by spaceships and it do looks like a big story but sadly it turns into something strange when another spaceship arrives and destroys the ships from the other race.

The acting itself wasn't really convincing due the effects being done by the actors themselves. This one didn't stand the time and can be skipped.
