    Good twist on the idea that aliens would only communicate with physically able people. Marlee Matlin gives an excellent performance in the role of a deaf woman contacted by the aliens, which suits her, and Larry Drake as a friend helping her while showing his own learning disability. Very nicely done and touching episode, which really surprised me how cliched many of this series' episodes were, this one had the kind of quality that the original series had, combining both hard sci-fi with true human angle to it, a combination that was central to the original series but sorely lacking here.moreless
