Trivia

The external shots of the space center Steve is working from is actually views of NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. There are also some stock footage shots of the mission control center. The scenes with the actors inside a control room are studio shots. See more »

Goofs

The area where the aliens are holed-up in the cave is implied to be undisturbed wildland, yet there are obviously chain-sawed smooth-cut ends on the logs that tumble down the hillside. See more »

Quotes

Oscar Goldman: I know what's been going on here.
Col. Steve Austin: Do you, Oscar?
Oscar Goldman: I know that four of them landed in a craft that came down at sea. I know that one of them died and disappeared. I know that if anyone touches them, they'll suffer extreme radiation burns and shock. And I know that we can't let any of them escape.

The Visitation
27 May 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Steve Austin(Lee Majors) is involved with the preparations for a lunar probe launch with Oscar Goldman(Richard Anderson) when, upon leaving, he witnesses a strange light in the sky that is reported to be a UFO, something he witnessed while in space three years ago. Oscar is skeptical, but Steve is adamant, and it turns out right, as four humanoid-looking alien explorers have landed to judge if the Earth is suitable for their race, but the answer is no, as they give off deadly radiation burns to people, which in turn will kill them. Meg Foster plays one such being whom Steve befriends and is determined to assist back into space with their mother ship... Fanciful but good episode is handled with reasonable seriousness, keeping it as grounded as possible, with a poignant ending.
