While traveling on the Space Shuttle Inspire, selfish and egotistical best-selling author Jake Worthy (Jere Burns) manages to survive a horrible accident in space; in fact, he is the sole survivor. When Jake begins behaving in a more agreeable and generous manner, it is assumed that he has experienced an epiphany after being spared a gruesome death. But the real reason for Jake's character conversion is an alien entity (Zachary Ansley) -- which has somehow burrowed its way into Jake's body, and is now desperately trying to escape. "The Vessel" originally aired on April 13, 2001.
