The Outer Limits
  • Ep: 33
  • Soldier
  • Opening Control Voice: Night comes too soon on the battlefield. For some men it comes permanently, their eyes never open to the light of day. But for this man, fighting this war, there is never total darkness. The spidery beams of light in the sky are the descendants of the modern laser beam -- heat rays that sear through tungsten steel and flesh as though they were cheesecloth. And this soldier must go against those weapons. His name is Qarlo, and he is a footsoldier, the ultimate infantryman. Trained from birth by the State, he has never known love, or closeness, or warmth. He is geared for only one purpose -- to kill the Enemy. And the Enemy waits for him...

  •  
  • Closing Control Voice: From the darkest of all pits, the soul of Man, come the darkest questions: Did the soldier finally come to care for those he protected? Or was it just his instinct to kill? Questions from the dark pit, but no answers. For answers lie in the future. Is it a future in which men are machines, born to kill, or is there time for us? Time. All the time in the world... but is that enough?
  • Ep: 34
  • Cold Hands, Warm Heart
  • Opening Control Voice: The most brilliant planet in our solar system is Venus, named for the Goddess of Love. It is closer to Earth than any other planet, twenty-eight million miles away. Until sometime in the last half of the twentieth century it is still a planet shrouded in mystery, enveloped in a heavy blanket of clouds and steam. Because its surface temperature was believed to be several times that of Earth's, it was not thought possible for Man to reach Venus and come back, until one day... somebody did it.

  •  
  • Closing Control Voice: The eternal, never-ceasing search for knowledge often leads to dark and dangerous places. Sometimes it demands risks not only of those who are searching, but of others who love them. These, in their own special way, know that knowledge is never wasted, nor is love.
  • Ep: 35
  • Behold, Eck!
  • Opening Control Voice: Since the first living thing gazed upward through the darkness, Man has seldom been content merely to be born, to endure, and to die. With a curious fervor he has struggled to unlock the mysteries of creation and of the world in which he lives. Sometimes he has won. Sometimes he has lost. And sometimes, in the tumbling torrents of space and time, he has brief glimpses of a world he never even dreams...

  •  
  • Closing Control Voice: Paradoxically, Man's endless search for knowledge has too often plundered his courage and warped his vision, so that he has faced the unknown with terror rather than awe, and probed the darkness with a scream rather than a light. Yet there have always been men who have touched the texture of tomorrow with understanding and with courage. Through these men, we may yet touch the stars.
  • Ep: 36
  • Expanding Human
  • Opening Control Voice: As far back as educated men have recorded their history, veils have been lowered to disclose a vast new reality -- rents in the fabric of Man's awareness.
