Capt. Jack Tanner: Say I was right. Admit that I, Jack Tanner, did foretell, did prophesy, long before you heard from that eyeless instrument.
Dr. Cabot Rowland: Yes, Jack, you were absolutely right.

Metaphysical implications of the quest for immortality
23 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far the best episode of the entire series. (Two other good episodes are "Dragon's Domain" and "Mission of the Darians".) The theme and orchestral scoring for Season One is much better than the mostly electronic music used for Season Two.

In this episode: Dr. Roland is the scientist determined find the secret of immortality on Ultima Thule at any cost.

The character of Dr. Jack Tanner speaks in riddles and can foretell the future. (His character has a definite Shakepearean quality.)

This underground world they have carved out for themselves seems, at first, to be a utopia; however, Commander Koenig discovers the dark truths of life on Ultima Thule.
