Another in a handful of remade episodes from the original Outer Limits series of the 1960s, Nightmare was based on a program which originally aired on December 2, 1963. The elite multicultural crew of the military space cruiser Tango Bravo is captured by Ebonite aliens. One by one, the crew members are forced to endure a hellish interrogation, conducted by an unseen voice. Curiously, the Ebonites seem to know the unique psychological weaknesses of each crewperson -- but no one knows where the interrogation will lead, nor what will ultimately happen to the captives. Dedicated to the late Outer Limits creator Leslie Stevens, the "new" version of "Nightmare" was first shown on August 14, 1998.
