  • Scientists on the moon find a "moonstone."

    This episode won't get many good reviews but I thought it was borderline fascinating. Nobody has done better than the old "Men into Space" spacesuits and they get recycled for this episode. The concept leads here. A small ball of intelligent beings from another world seek refuge and escape to the moon. They are found by their tyrannical rulers and will be forced to return to their planet. Earth cannot give them refuge for they will then destroy Earth. We learn, rather humbly, that we are not the most powerful creatures in the universe. The interplay and subplots weaken what otherwise might have been a classic. As it is, however, I found it at least an interesting piece.
