The Price of Making a Future for Mankind
30 July 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Apparently, two factions, earth residents and a genetically engineered culture called the Dregs have declared war on one another. A group of negotiators agree to have a summit meeting on a neutral planet. Unfortunately, after the arrival of the earth people, the Dreg's ship is destroyed. This leads to an automatic sense of anger to start off the summit. Also, in the explosion, the head negotiator for the earth people is killed. Enter a couple Dregs who stand behind a sort of force field and try to make nice. The air is full of suspicion, led by a military man played by the late John Spencer. What is at issue is that the two forces are heading to a kind of face off that will mean the destruction of both their species, at least a huge loss of life. The whole thing leads to one of the most dramatic conclusions I've seen. It has to do with our moral being and how important we see the future in light of our own importance. One thing I appreciated was the religion was left out of this. This episode would make for an excellent disussion.
