Storyline

Mulder and Scully travel to Houston after a NASA employee, Michelle Generoo, shows them evidence that a space shuttle may have been sabotaged. They had recently had to abort a launch just seconds before lift-off and another launch is now scheduled. The man in charge of the program is a legendary Gemini astronaut, Col. Marcus Aurelius Belt. He claims there's nothing to the scrubbed launch that they weren't aware of and the talk of sabotage is nonsense. The second launch goes off without any problems but ground control is soon encountering difficulties communicating with the craft. It's all related to something that happened to Belt during his last Gemini flight and it's now affecting his judgment. Written by garykmcd

Not the best episode ever maybe ...
31 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the best episode ever maybe, but it surely doesn't deserve all that scorn! "Shots of astronauts and the space shuttle used for time-filling"? Surely and episode about a space shuttle mission that didn't show astronauts and the shuttle would be a bit odd, and lets face it, on a TV show budget, they can hardly re-create shuttle launches and weightlessness half as realistically as the real thing! Speaking as a long-term science fiction fan, both written and TV/film, I thought it was a refreshing change to see a S-F/Fantasy about space exploration that featured the real space program instead of mile-long warcraft and laser battles.
