Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Four people, all lifetime loners, are selected to man the controls of a "doomsday device," designed to ward off attack from alien spaceships. One of the four, Ben Conklin (James LeGros), has been assigned to flip a switch that will de-activate the device in case of emergency. The question: Does Ben care enough about himself, his colleagues, and humanity to prevent the wholesale destruction of Earth and the alien invaders alike? "Dead Man's Switch" originally aired on April 4, 1997.
