The old Pandora's Box legend is given a new and terrifying spin on this Outer Limits episode. The story is set in motion by a missing package containing valuable and potentially dangerous secrets. Naturally, there are quite a few people who'd like to get their hands on that package. Some of these people are motivated by good intentions -- but others have only dollar signs in their beady little eyes. Produced for the series' fourth season, "Black Box" first aired in Canada on December 11, 1998, and in the United States on May 10, 1999 -- well into Season Five.
