Episode Quotes
Koenig: A giant leap for Mankind. It's beginning to look like a stumble in the dark.

Dr. Russell: You knew that that area was suspect. You knew that it already affected the two probe astronauts and the Eagle pilot in some way. And yet you went out there yourself. We're looking for answers, Commander, not heroes.
Koenig: I didn't know you cared.
