I had to take another look at it, but, the website referenced twiced I think, within the episode THE TIPPING POINT "www.fidelisveres.net". Well, I enter this, as a URL in my browser, and lo-and-behold, it loads up the same page that 'www.theouterlimits.com' does! anyway, just thought that was kinda neat.

I just assumed it would be a dead link. Btw, I didn't quite understand the ending of that episode. Was Zach brainwashed by Prometheus' goons? Or did he really change his mind on his own? I was disappointed that he would allow his girlfriend to be killed at the end.

I just assumed it would be a dead link. MGM registered the domain name on June 19, 2001. Wonder how long they will keep it up. Loren http://www.innermind.com/outerlimits/

I came to same conclusions, but I tend to lean toward the latter explanation. I've never been really crazy about episodes with vague endings that just "let the viewer decide". This sometimes works really well in written SF (Ray Bradbury's short stories come to mind), but so far hasn't worked very well in SF television.

I thought after watching the ending, it reminded slightly of the episode "Straight and Narrow" to a degree, even though the two have a good amount of differences. Anyway, since there was no obvious hint that he might be under the influence of the prometheus program (they never like had a shot coming around to the back of his head, with a real close-up shot of the back of his ear - like they did with the others - a simular technique used on THE X-FILES), so either he changed his mind; the pressure of the world being taken over, by computers, that he broke down, and accepted what he believed would ultimately be, his inevitable death, or they were able to manipulate him, maybe with a simular implant-like in another way, that wasnt previously illistrated in the victims preceding him.
