Synopsis by Hal Erickson
When the plane bearing presidential candidate Sen. Wynton Brody (Bruce Boxleitner) is struck by lightning, it at first appears that no damage has been done. But then, Brody envisions a strange woman (C.C.H. Pounder) who warns him the plane is doomed to crash, killing everyone on board. She claims to have been sent from the future to rescue Brody so that he will be elected president and thereby prevent a nuclear holocaust. But is Brody willing to save his own life at the cost of his friends and associates on the plane? "Decompression" was originally telecast on June 30, 2000.
