When a spacecraft makes an emergency landing on an unknown planet the commander, William Fletcher, is anxious to get underway again as soon as possible. Not so for his navigator, Peter Craig, who is insubordinate and is fed up taking orders all of the time. While Fletcher makes repairs to the ship Craig explores the area around them and is astonished to find that there are living beings there only a fraction of the size of humans. Soon, he is being recognized by them as a god and refuses to leave when the ship ready. He is to realize that one's place in the universe is a relative thing. Written by
When Craig shows Fletcher the tiny village, his arm points out the landscape, and seconds later steps next to Fletcher and does it again. See more »
The case of navigator Peter Craig, a victim of a delusion. In this case, the dream dies a little harder than the man. A small exercise in space psychology that you can try on for size - in the Twilight Zone.

Claude Akins plays Commander Fletcher, and Joe Maross plays Navigator Peter Craig, two astronauts who are forced to make an emergency landing on an unknown planet after their ship runs into trouble. Forced to make repairs, Craig is told to explore the area for supplies, and to determine if it is inhabited or not. Craig does find life, but the tiny kind, as it turns out a very small community of little people about 1/100th their size exist, and unethical Peter Craig decides to become their God, and doesn't much care if it's a loving or angry one... Far-fetched but memorable episode may be morally obvious, but it makes its point well, and Maross is quite a sight to see, especially at the surprise(?) ending.
