One of a handful of the '90s Outer Limits episodes inspired by stories from the series' first incarnation in the 1960s, "Feasibility Study" was based on a program that originally aired on April 13, 1964. The residents of a suburban neighborhood blocks awaken one morning to discover that they, and their surroundings, have been transported to another planet. It is all part of a test conducted by an alien species to see if humans can be bred into a race of slaves. This places the abductees in a Hobson's Choice: If they pass the test, mankind will be enslaved; if they fail, they themselves will be destroyed. Written by Joseph Stefano, one of the prime movers of the original series, this remake episode was broadcast on July 11, 1997.
