Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Captain Kelvin Parkhurst (Jason Gedrick), a highly decorated military hero, volunteers for a mysterious mission. To make certain he is up to the task, Parkhurst is obliged to undergo a series of hellish endurance tests. The basic plot line is flexible enough to incorporate excerpts from such previous Outer Limits episodes as "Nightmare," "Hearts and Mind," "The Human Operators," "In the Blood," "Monster," "The Voyage Home," "Tempests," and "Worlds Within." Originally telecast on January 18, 2002, "Human Trials" was the final episode of The Outer Limits' seventh season.
