Trivia

In this never-aired episode, the music score is credited to Bernard Herrmann. The music used in the opening credits is from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). The incidental music used throughout the episode are from "The Day the Earth Stood Still", Beneath the 12-Mile Reef (1953), Garden of Evil (1954), and Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), all of which were composed by Herrmann.

Closer to believability than the later series
8 June 2012 | by (Southwest USA) – See all my reviews

What? A measly 8000 miles per second? That's the mean velocity 100 years to Alpha Centauri comes out to. But actually, that's not an outrageous estimate compared to what science fiction usually dupes an audience with. LiS, of course, did so also. In the pilot that was actually shown as episode #1, wasn't that 100 years (98 years suspended animation) changed to 5 years?-- meaning travel very near the speed of light? And in this pilot, there was nothing about a "hyper-drive" that would fling them to anywhere in universe. Which means that the planet they land on must be in this solar system-- an earth-like planet not known before. As unlikely as that is, I think it's still more likely than the near-light and hyper-drive junk that sci-fi so thrives on. However, if there would be such a planet in our solar system, obviously in the habitable zone, there is no it could be anywhere other than directly opposite the sun to us-- our real twin with an orbit right on our own elliptical pattern. Considering the extreme cold in this pilot, it should not be such, but should be a planet with a more elongated orbit. But with that, there is no way we could not see it. But anyway, it's all summed up by saying this pilot is definitely closer to something quasi-scientific than the later pilot and the series. If anyone thinks ratings don't follow logic, I submit this as exhibit A.
