Wow! That was fast!! Thanks, Motor. Slowmover 21:11, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

It was a pure coincidence... I was just about the create the page for this episode myself and noticed that you'd already created them all. Incidentally, did you get the info you included initially from the book you mentioned before... if so, could you include it as a source. If you aren't sure how, just list the details on the talk page (name, author, publisher, publication date, page etc etc) and I'll do it. Thanks. - Motor (talk) 21:15, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
I have multiple sources for The Outer Limits. VHS tapes, the DVDs sets, the DVD booklets, the major work by Schow, Schow's website (listed in the main article), old Usenet postings (full of errors). The only things that come uniquely from the book by Schow are (1) the production numbering, and (2) uncredited cast members, which I haven't put online yet, although you have some on the pages you've done. Next, I plan to do the full cast listing for the episodes that don't have them, and then go back and verify the ones already there. I was surprised to find that Ed Asner was missing from It Crawled Out of the Woodwork, so it's worth checking them all. And then somebody should check mine, ad infinitum...

It doesn't matter if the information is uniquely from Schow's book -- if the info for the article is in there and correct we can use it as a source. It'd be nice to have a published source, because all the OL episode articles I created have been from information grabbed from the web (the OL website,,, and it's always bothered me a bit. I'd like to point to something more solid and permanent. - Motor (talk) 21:35, 21 February 2006 (UTC)


The article intro currently states "A team of scientists use an incredibly strong magnetic field to open a door to another dimension. Their success, however, leads to a bizarre tragedy." But under the "Plot" section, no tragedy is mentioned.

I haven't seen the episode, so can someone who has fill in the blanks? How does the story end? — Satori Son 16:59, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

The tragedy: "Desperate to contact his dead son, the rich man enters the inter-dimensional chamber, disappearing." Before disappearing, however, the rich man (Dwight Hartley) first transforms into a skeleton, indicating his death. Genesis 1:3 (talk) 23:15, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
