Biologist Sam Conrad is scheduled to go on a mission to Mars and is genuinely concerned about what they will find there. The mission commander, Mark Marcusson, tells him there's nothing to worry about as he firmly believes that God made everyone in his image and no matter what they find, he is certain that people are alike all over. They crash-land on Mars and Marcusson dies from his injuries. Conrad is happy to find that the people of Mars are very human-like, friendly and intelligent. They provide him with a home and promise him much more. Too late however he realizes that, just as Marcusson had said, people are alike all over. Written by garykmcd

Spaceship Interior
1 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Note that the some of the spaceship interior components, specifically the Pac Man light boxes, appear to be leftovers from "Forbidden Planet". These appear in a couple other TZ episodes also: "Elegy" and maybe some others.

I never realized this was the same girl from "The Cage/Court Martisl" before. Maybe she got typecast as an attractive alien seductress.

Finally got Tivo So I can record the TZ New Yeat marathon. Now I can leave my TV room on New Year's eve/day!

What's up with the 10 lines of text minimum? I can't think of anything more to say!
