  • Abductions by aliens won't necessarily stop just because we create warp drive, and are now exploring the galaxy. As far as our captors are's just business as usual.

    This episode theorizes as to how alien abductions might actually be occurring. After all, flying saucers and metallic, cigar-shaped objects flying through space and beaming us up into their UFO won't make the grade in the Star Trek universe. There has to be an entirely different mechanism to get the job done. Introducing: interdimensional abductions. Now, people can be abducted from a starship with even knowing it. And, this all seems consistent with the stories of the pig farmers and institution escapees of today's world. The episode didn't get a very high rating, but I loved it regardless, because of the element of mystery solving that the episode gives its viewers.
