Just like the other three. All four experience dramatic increases in intelligence, over 200. And new interests: biochemistry, metallurgy, physics and finance. And each seem to be driven to a mysterious goal, unknown even to themselves. Ballard tracks down each of them, or tries to. Conover turns away from the Swedish shipyard where he was working because he seems to sense that Ballard is inside, talking to his supervisor. Ballard learns that Hadley (now in South America searching for the herb rara coelensis) was working on ventilation systems. Conover had devised new alloys which were stronger and lighter than the original metals. And he finds that Renaldo has invented an anti-gravity device. "I've beaten gravity" he tells Ballard bitterly. He has no joy over his accomplishment. He had no choice in the matter. The unknown mission required that he do it, and he did. Minns, with his interest in finance, is financing the whole operation. And more. He's contacting children, asking them to accompany him.

At first, Minns and the others are in the dark about what will happen to the children. Then the alien intelligence reveals the final explanation to Minns and he takes Ballard inside the ship. He finds that the damaged children are whole again, and well. Crutches and leg braces lay on the deck, unneeded. Minerva can see, and Danny can hear and speak. Minns tells Ballard that the atmosphere in the ship duplicates that of the planet they'll be travelling to. And that, if taken off the ship, the children will immediately revert. He says that they will be going to a planet that had been wiped out by a catastrophe, and they would be colonizing the planet. All four of the soldiers would accompany the children.

ITunes brings us Season 2 of the original series.
Season 2 did not have same creative team producing the series, and it did change the format to more emphasis on science fiction. However, there are some gems here, beginning with Harlan Ellison's "Demon With A Glass Hand" which featured an incredible performance by Robert Culp and great direction by sci-fi master Byron Haskin. Other memorable episodes include the two part "The Inheritors" written by Seeleg Lester and starring Robert Duvall in a story that could be a prequel to the X-Files. Other episodes feature William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan in starring roles. It's a real treat to see these classic episodes again!
Demon With A Glass Hand
This transfer is of good quality, picture is very sharp, sound quality is as good as could be expected considering the source. This is among the top 5 Outer Limits episodes. far surpassing anything produced during the "new" version. Robert Culp gives an outstanding performance (that should have received an Emmy)! Harlan Ellison's story is worthy of a top notch movie, much less a weekly television series. Famous diretor Byron Haskins provides a mood far surpassing the shows meager budget. Arlene Martel also prvides superb back-up as the unintended participant. What a pity programers no longer consider television worthy of this type of superb quality. I always wonderd what ever happened to that marvelous computrer hand prop. Too bad television programs can no longer begin to provide this quality. Imagine the possibilities!
