What a Depressing, Sad Future
2 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

An indifferent corporate world has taken the place of government. The world is filled with unhappy people who scramble to make money for the evil bosses. We find ourselves on a commercial ship, looking for space junk to bring back. In the process, a floating coffin comes into view. Because it is made of valuable metal, it is brought on board. As luck would have it, the greedy crew quickly opens it an finds a man (played by Corbin Bernsen) who is in this coffin because he had become recognized as one responsible for the murders of billions. What transpires is that murders begin to be committed on board. What we don't know is whether the Bernsen character (Nygard) or another one of the crew is responsible. Nygard quickly gains control of the ship. But several clues tell us that he can't have been responsible for all the carnage. As a matter of fact, he insists that he had become the scapegoat for the mega-corporation and the his actions were forced on him. It's another of those depressing, claustrophobic nightmares on board a ship that seems to have delighted the writers of The Outer Limits.
