Storyline

Commander Douglas Stansfield is selected to be the first astronaut to go on a deep space mission. He will be away for 40 years but for much of that, he will be in stasis and on his return he will hardly have aged. Stansfield is a seemingly ideal candidate as he is single and has no close family. Prior to his departure however, he meets the beautiful Sandra Horn and they fall very much in love. Forty years later, Stansfield returns but it seems he and Sandra had their own way of dealing with the 40 years since they last saw each other. Written by garykmcd

[closing narration]
Narrator: Commander Douglas Stansfield, one of the forgotten pioneers of the space age. He's been pushed aside by the flow of progress and the passage of years - and the ferocious travesty of fate. Tonight's tale of the ionosphere and irony, delivered from - the Twilight Zone.

When Stansfield met Sandra
19 January 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Stansfield (Robert Lansing) is a thirty-one year old astronaut who accepted a forty-year mission in space. He is to undergo suspended animation so as to not age all those years on returning to earth. Stansfield has no family ties to worry about and thus appears to be right for the job.

Suddenly a young employee of the space center, Sandra (Mariette Hartley) appears on the scene. Stansfield and Sandra see love in the stars from first sight. After three and a half hours together they are so deeply in love that Sandra already feels the sadness of loss due to the impending mission.

Rod Serling's often revisited theme of loneliness and space takes the form of a love story right down to the musical score and the gentle pacing of the dialogue. Both lead actors are good in their roles. Mariette Hartley is very expressive and appealing as love-tingly Sandra making this a pleasant and welcome change of mood from the Zone.

Names tend to recur in Rod Serling's scripts. It's as though Sandra Horn, who is in love with a space pioneer, were a descendant of Christian Horn the pioneer from 'A Hundred Yards Above The Rim'-series two.
