Richard Basehart stars as Col. Cook, an astronaut whose spaceship Probe 7 has crashed on an unknown but habitable planet, who tries in vain to fix it, finally giving up. He has some visual contact with his world, but is told that no rescue is possible, and that in fact a world war is imminent. This turns out to be true, and Cook discovers that he isn't quite alone either, as a beautiful foreign woman(played by Antoinette Bower) who is initially hostile, but they form a truce, as they lay claim to their new world which they name... Entertaining episode with a small but good cast is undeniably obvious and predictable, but done in the appealing style that this series specialized at.
