Indexer Notes

Script (only) attributed to Jack Miller by Rich Morrissey, but disputed by Bob Hughes. Samachson is current DC credit, as seen in Showcase Presents: Martian Manhunter (DC, 2007 series) #1.

Plot is similar to "The Galaxy Being", first episode of the original The Outer Limits television show. The show first aired on 16 September 1963. In it, Allan Maxwell, an engineer for a small radio station, somehow makes contact with a peaceful alien creature, who gets transported to Earth by accident.
