Plot Overview



The Show

Behind the Scenes

  • According to Barry Morse, this was an unsuccessful backdoor pilot for a potential comedy series featuring the characters of Phobos and Deimos, which is why this remains the only episode of the series to feature a such a light tone.
  • For whatever reason, this episode features no credits for the episode's writer, director, and producer, which would normally appear early in the first act.
