Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] Her name is the Arrow One. She represents four and a half years of planning, preparation, and training, and a thousand years of science and mathematics, and the projected dreams and hopes of not only a nation but a world. She is the first manned aircraft into space. And this is the countdown, the last five seconds before man shot an arrow into the air.

'If ya stop, maybe sanity will get ya by the throat ?'
29 January 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

That's a line I really like from Rod Serling's narration during the action of this entry. I also think the title of this one is well chosen.

A space ship called Arrow-One goes off the radar after blasting off on course for an asteroid. Then scene then changes to the eventual fate of those on board. Only some of the astronauts survive a crash landing. They perceive they are in the Earth's solar system by recognizing the sun. Col.Donlin (Edward Binns) has the unenviable task of keeping his surviving men sane with the fear of limited water rations in a hot climate tormenting their minds.

Fairly interesting and worth seeing once. There's a very good moment to watch out for where a dying astronaut draws something in the sand.

As mentioned elsewhere in my reviews, there is often a clue to the story's outcome early on in episodes of the Zone. You will kick yourself this time if you don't find where Serling has left a clue!
