O is for Outer Limits

Similar in style to the earlier 'Twilight Zone', 'The Outer Limits' was an anthology show from the early Sixties, featuring science fiction stories, usually with a plot twist at the end. Many of the props from this series - and indeed some of the actors - eventually found their way into the original 'Star Trek' series, as Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was often present in their studios. "You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits."
