The commander of the UNAS Meridian, Captain William Clark finds himself on trial after all bar one of the other members die. The testimony against him is stark. The commander of the rescue vessel says Clark was agitated when they found him but none of the other crew were alive. The prosecution argues he was suffering from space psychosis owing to the length of his assignment. Clark claims that his crew were lured to their deaths by images of people who were close to them and his lawyer, his ex-wife Robin Dysart, suggests a leak syroxin gas could have induced psychoses in those that died. Clark wants to get to the truth however and firmly believes there is an alien aboard the space station. Written by garykmcd

What a waste of talent
7 July 2018 | by krakrazykat18See all my reviews

Wow, great talent, why couldnt they have given them more to work with? The actors and director get all the stars for this one. They obviously did the best they could with bad writing and plot development. Bet the Van Peeples were doing someone a favor!
