Storyline

On the ship, Christa goes to get immunized. Ophelia accompanies her to prove that nothing is wrong with the shots. Ophelia takes the shot herself, has a seizure, and collapses. Looking on, Harris insists that Christa must get the shot soon or her system will start breaking down. Meanwhile, Samantha meets with conspiracy theorist Armin Cruz, who tells her that 70 scientists were abducted in the 1960s, one of whom is later shown to be Ophelia. On the ship, Viondra learns that Jackie, one of the stewardesses, has begun having sex with the captain. She relieves Jackie of her duties. When Harris tries to get Christa to take her inoculations through a glass of milk, she looks up at the camera and dumps it on the floor. Harris tells them to use their "man inside" to make her take the inoculation. Christa panics, screams, and shatters the lights, but the "man inside" also cuts himself and bleeds on her dress. Viondra learns that someone squelched her order to have Jackie transferred. Still, ... Written by Lippi

Goofs

The ship's version of the Pledge of Allegiance maintains a reference to God, yet no religion is shown among the characters, such as during Lorelai's funeral in the previous episode presided over by the Captain and his wife but no pastoral figures. One can argue both ways whether the experiment's designers would want or not want religion on the ship, yet the real constraint would be finding so many original mission volunteers without religion in the middle of the 20th century. Regardless, passengers would find the reference to God in the pledge odd if they believed in no such figure or had never heard of Him. See more »
