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.

A brilliant look at the darker side of human nature
A spaceship and its crew arrive on a distant planet. However, the planet appears pretty worthless and they are planning on soon returning to Earth---that is, all but one of the crew. The lone crew member has apparently discovered a race of tiny people who are just the size of little specks. He doesn't want to go--not out of love for these beings but because he decides he is going to be their god! The episode is a standout because of its look at human nature and its dark side. While not all the crew members are crazed egomaniacs, one sure is and reveals a Hitler-like aspect of his apparently normal persona. How all this is played out is truly creative and makes such a simple idea come to life and have deeper meaning. Good stuff.
