The Outer Limits: The Inheritors (1)

On the Vietnam front, four soldiers are wounded and the hospital discovers unusual alien DNA-laden bullets in their brain that provide them with new intellectual ressources. The now civilian "soldiers" come together and each in his own field, is told to organize and build one element for an unknown project conceived as a holy mission. At Washington, Secretary of Science Randolph Branch and his assistant Adam Ballard, with the help of the Federal Bureau Security, investigate on these four men with strange behavior patterns to find out their true purpose.

Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: In the troubled places of the world, the Devil's Hunter finds rare game. For man-made savagery is only the instrument for a secret terror stirring from its dark place of ambush...

Adam Ballard: Whatever that project is, I got the impression that these men hate what's happening to them! Hate what they're doing even if they're unwilling to do it! Not just frightening it but it is terrifying! These men are tormented and unable to control themselves...

Closing Narration: Man looks up at the stars, and dreams his futile dreams. Child of the universe, his toys are ignorance, his games, fantasy. Not even master of his own fate, it is the Devil's Puppeteer who stretches his fingers to answer the question: What will happen next?

Episode Goofs
Closing credits misspell the character description for Leon Askin as "Shop Superintendant". The correct spelling is "Superintendent".
