Trivia

Similar to the Twilight Zone episode "People Are Alike All Over " plot where Ed Mercer and Kelly Grayson find themselves in an alien zoo. In 1960, future Star Trek actors Susan Oliver, Byron Morrow and Vic Perrin played Martians in the "People Are Alike All Over" episode of The Twilight Zone, which also featured Paul Comi. (It's worth noting that this episode was similar to 1964's "The Cage" insofar as the aliens put the space-faring Earthman in a zoo and read his mind to create a familiar environment for him.)

Ed Mercer: That's what he said. Moclans reproduce by laying eggs. Which I never knew.
John LaMarr: Well, where does it come out of? The butt?
Ed Mercer: You know, John, I didn't really pry into those kinds of specifics.
John LaMarr: How is that not the first thing you ask?

went down REALLY fast
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

While the first episode was promising - this one takes its worst treats and magnifies them. From childish, unprofessional and erratic behaviour of seemingly untrained crew to weak humour and pathetic clichés. Sprinkle it with some bad acting and you have it. So much wasted potential (again).
