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

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears. Case in point: the scene you're watching. This is not a hospital, not a morgue, not a mausoleum, not an undertaker's parlor of the future. What it is is the belly of a spaceship. It is en route to another planetary system an incredible distance from the Earth. This is the crux of our story, a flight into space. It is also the story of the things that might happen to human beings...

While the twist was very predictable, it's still a decent episode.
1 June 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Robert Lansing plays an astronaut who has been chosen to command a 40 year long flight to another solar system and back. He accepts this mission because he has no one that will miss him--no wife or family--plus he will be in suspended animation the whole time, so it isn't like he'll be bored or age during this long flight. However, in the interval between his being chosen and the flight taking off, he meets a pretty young lady (Marriette Hartley) and they hit it off. However, their relationship is obviously doomed! And, when the flight returns, there is a twist--one I anticipated from almost the beginning of the show!! Still, the episode is pretty interesting and is different, so it's worth seeing--just don't expect it to be among the series' best.
