This week, I received a nice e-mail from Gary, who is interested in finding a particular Suspense episode, but he doesn't know the title. As fans of OTR, we have all had this happen to us. An episode makes an impression, but then, for whatever reason, we can't find it again.
The episode that Gary is seeking isn't familar to me. At least, I don't think I have posted it here, but maybe I am wrong.
Do you recognize this plot?
Here is Gary's description:
"A group of men are planning to rob a ship. On they voyage out they figure out the crew's routines. The ship is nuclear powered, so they have to be able to take control of the engine room. The ship will also be bringing a gold shipment back, and that is the thieves' main goal. They also have to take over the radio room so the crew can not call for help.
On the return trip they make their move, but somehow the captain of the ship outsmarts the thieves. Only at the very end of the program, when the captain sets them adrift in a lifeboat, is it revealed that the ship is not an ocean liners but a spaceship and tho voyage was to another planet. Can you identify the episode from this?"
Any help identifying this episode would be appreciated!
*Solved!! Many thanks to Dan Dreibelbis, who correctly identified this as an episode of The Mysterious Traveler called "S.O.S."
And here it is:
