Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The only cure for the deadly "Ellysia C" epidemic on the outer-space Tabloss Colony is a single vial of serum. The Tempest, a dilapidated, virtually obsolete spaceship, is chosen to transport the serum to Tabloss. The journey takes a deadly detour when space colonist John Virgil, bitten by a spiderish creature while trying to repair the damaged Tempest, discovers that he can no longer separate fact from fantasy. "Tempests" originally aired on March 7, 1997.
