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 the 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.

Despite a fundamental flaw in the logic, this is a cool episode
29 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode is about a space ship that goes off course and crashes on a desolate world. It's dry as a bone and hope for survival for the crew seems nil. As they try looking for water and food, order among the crew slowly dissolves--as the individual crew members become more concerned with self-preservation than the mission. Ultimately, as usual, there is a wonderful twist conclusion.

This is a very, very good episode provided you ignore one central problem with the plot--the whole idea of a ship being THAT lost and all seems very far-fetched and if you think too much, the twist ending seems silly. However, as a critique on human nature, it's great--with great insight into the baser instincts of people. Great? Nope, but well worth your time.
