Storyline

The tall and imposing Magus arrives on board the ship. He claims godlike powers, namely that he effected the Creation. But he is now disillusioned with the way that Life has progressed and wishes to start again. He plans to mate Helena and Tony and Maya with Koenig. But of course he is not God but a renegade cosmic sorcerer, and quite illogical at that, who needs to be controlled. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The hand lasers have only two settings, "stun" or "kill". Apparently, Kill is the more powerful setting as it is used to explode the rocks blocking the cave entrance. In "The Immunity Syndrome," a psychotic Tony Verdeshi uses that setting to light a tree stump on fire. See more »

Goofs

Similar to "The Full Circle", a large pit is excavated without the use of digging tools. And in both cases, there is no evidence of soil deposits in the area (and in this case, the Alphans themselves aren't even dirty). See more »

Quotes

Commander John Koenig: We make our own choices!
Magus: Much less often than you think.

Stop complaining, this episode is good
20 November 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

Someone compared it to a bad Trek episode, Adonis, but that's a wonderful episode and so is the mystery and simplicity of this one, where the title describes itself, a god-like man creates Eden for four of the Alphans, and it has everything you need in an action sci-fi. Including a giant lizard. So there!
