Sissy Johnson's dad is played by James Doohan, who also plays Montgomery "Scotty" Scott, the engineer of Star Trek's starship Enterprise. The technology displayed at Peaceful Valley has its equivalent in the Federation universe: the device that breaks atomic structure and puts it together again (transporters), the one that creates objects from "statements" about atomic structure (replicators) and the invisible walls (force fields).

When Philip Redfield first pulls into the gas station, he gets out and opens the radiator cap to check the water level. Opening the cap on a car that has just been driven causes hot water to rush out, but this didn't happen. Also the cap itself would have been burning hot. See more »
You've seen them. Little towns, tucked away from the main roads. You've seen them, but have you thought about them? Have you wondered what the people do in such places, why they stay? Philip Redfield thinks about them now and he wonders, but only very late at night, when he's between wakefulness and sleep - in the Twilight Zone.

A man (Ed Nelson) wanders into a small town. Everything seems normal until he sees that miracles can take place in this town--the dead can be brought to life and everyone lives in perfect harmony. The town's leader explains that although they have this wonderful technology as a result of a brilliant scientist from the town, they cannot divulge the secrets to the world, as humans would misuse and hurt each other with these great powers. Nelson disagrees, so it's up to Opatoshu to stop him at any price in order to save humanity.
This is one of the best of the one hour episodes from season four. Much of the reason it's so good is that it was very well written and exciting and I also liked it because it starred one of the better character actors from TV of his time, David Opatoshu. While his name is probably not known to 99.9% of the people out there, his face is rather familiar, having done some wonderful guest appearances on STAR TREK, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and many other series of the day.
