The Outer Limits: Cold Hands, Warm Heart

Returning home from a journey to Venus, astronaut Jeff Barton is welcomed and acclaimed as a national hero and must prepare the next stage of the space program: the colonization of Mars. But before obtaining any funds to launch the project, General Barton must meet the Senate Committee with a complete report. Unfortunately, his mental and physical health—his fingers are webbed—deteriorate gradually owing to his past assignment on Venus that his subconscious has hidden and repressed. A team of scientists and the support of his loving wife succeeds in healing him.

Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: The most brilliant planet in our solar system is Venus, named for the goddess of love. It is closer to Earth than any other planet—twenty-eight million miles away. Until sometime in the last half of the twentieth century it is still a planet shrouded in mystery, enveloped in a heavy blanket of clouds and steam. Because its surface temperature was believed to be several times that of Earth's, it was not thought possible for Man to reach Venus and come back... until one day, somebody did it.

General Jeff Barton: My mind seems to wander... I have a horrible dream... I don't remember it, I just know it was horrible. What's happening to me, Mike?
