Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: In the vast immensities of cosmic space, bold adventurers streak their way to join battle with strange enemies on strange worlds—the alien, the unknown, perhaps even the invisible, armed only with Man's earthbound knowledge...

Closing Narration: Battle joined. Casualties? Yes. Resolution: Victory, of a sort. A painful step from the crib of destiny. On another day, a friend, perhaps, instead of a deadly peril—part of the saga of the space pioneers.

Captain Jack Buckley: Funny thing that sand, isn't it? Looks just like the ocean at the Cape... I used to love to look at the moon on the water.
