Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Earth makes contact with the residents of the planet N'Tal, 12 light years away. Facing extinction, the aliens hope to repopulate N'Tal by using the corpses of dead human beings as hosts for their own life forms. Believing himself on a humanitarian mission, earth scientist Dr. Michael Alders (Mykelti Williamson) seeks out the dead bodies so desperately needed on N'tal. But when Alders draws up plans to revitalize the late wife of his best friend, he learns to his horror that his mission of mercy may result in wholesale disaster on earth. "Second Soul" first aired on April 14, 1995.
