Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The fanatical anti-technology group Syndrome hopes to blow up all the computers in the Department of Information Technology. But in their efforts to plant the bombs, most of the group's members are killed by the Department's armed guards. Surviving Syndrome member Cliff Unger (Frank Whaley) manages to get his hands on a detonator, while negotiator Pete Yastremski (John Amos) tries to persuade Cliff to give up his apocalyptic scheme. A series of flashbacks reveals how this crisis came about -- and also casts several doubts as to who are the actual heroes and villains in the piece. "Zig Zag" was originally telecast on August 11, 2000.
