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

Goofs

It is said that Stansfield's destination is 141 light years away, his spaceship will travel at 70 times the speed of light, and the trip will take 40 years. If the ship will travel at 70 times the speed of light, a 141 light year journey should only take a little over two years. See more »

Quotes

[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.

Referred to in new episode of "Gilmore Girls", season opener
8 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing and enjoying this episode, and was touched again by its poignancy after the season opener of "Gilmore Girls," on ABC Family Network.

Rory Gilmore, played by Alexis Bledel, receives an odd gift from her boyfriend Logan Huntzberger, played by Matt Czuchry, as he leaves for England for a year. In a box usually used for long-stemmed roses, Rory receives a model of a rocket ship, instead of flowers.

She spends the rest of episode trying to figure out its meaning, and finally realizes its from this episode of the Twilight Zone, "The Long Morrow."

"Gilmore Girls" is one of those incredibly well-written shows that not enough people who enjoy good writing end up seeing, unfortunately. For it to reference such a wonderful story from an anthology of wonderful stories says a lot about it to me.
