Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Having been discredited by a "miscalculation" during a manned space flight in the 1960s, elderly astronaut Theodore Harris (Cliff Robertson) is given a chance to redeem himself nearly 40 years later. Taking over the controls of a brand-new passenger starship, Harris pilots the vessel into unchartered space, hoping to revisit the area where he had suffered the mishap that ruined his reputation. In his efforts to restore his good name, Harris endangers the lives of the vessel's terrified passengers -- none of whom have any idea why the ship has suddenly and dramatically gone off course. "Joyride" originally aired on February 26, 1999.
