Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the year 2059, Link (Zach Ward), an android with advanced artificial intelligence, takes it upon himself to end earth's colonization of the rest of the universe. Link's solution is simple: He must destroy all humans. Military officer Ellis Grover (Robert Duncan McNeill) must convince the disgruntled android that humankind is worth preserving. Bolstering (and sometimes weakening) Grover's argument are excerpts from such previous Outer Limits episodes as "Phobos Rising," "Hearts and Mind," "Manifest Destiny," "Something About Harry," "The Haven," "Final Exam," "Final Appeal," "The Vaccine," and "Replica." "The Human Factor" originally aired on January 11, 2002.
