Dr. Randall Strong meets with a committee of senior government officials to try and convince them that extra-terrestrials are living among them. The committee was formed to deal with unforeseen external threats to the United States but Strong is facing a skeptical audience. He points to experiments by Dr. Simon Kress on eggs brought to Earth in Martian soil the previous year. Strong believes some of those creatures are now on the loose and multiplying rapidly. He also points to several other incidents: the destruction of the Mars lander on it's return to Earth; an artifact that turned a young woman into a killer; a house that was supposedly made up of non-terrestrial organic material. There are more examples but little sympathy. Written by garykmcd

Were they running out of money?
28 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

What a horrible episode ... We are shown clips from many episodes of the first season, combined with a hearing of a committee. That is very poor episode recycling (just one set, no special effects, very cheap to produce). The only question I have is if they ran out of ideas or money to do this. In total season one had a lot of very good episodes, so it's a pity in my opinion that they ended with this weak episode. In addition to that, the behavior of the scientist is very much exaggerated. If he really wanted to convince the committee, he should have realized that being cooler would be quite more convincing than giving the paranoid mad man. I think any real committee would have ended that hearing quite earlier.
