An American fantasy/science fiction television episode directed by John Meredyth Lucas, Jeff Corey and Jeannot Szwarc. When the episode went into syndication the story The Different Ones was spun off into a stand-alone half hour episode, its running time boosted with footage from Fahrenheit 451 (1966) and the, at the time, still unreleased Silent Running (1972).
