Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Lost in space for 20 years, Christopher Lindy (Chad Willett), the sole survivor of a manned-spacecraft mission, re-establishes contact with planet earth. This is both happy and disturbing news for Lindy's former sweetheart, space agency chairman Nancy McDonald (Bonnie Bedelia). In her efforts to bring the displaced astronaut safely back to earth, Nancy puts her relationship with her husband, Greg Tilman (Michael MacRae), on the line -- especially since Greg may be the only person qualified to save Lindy from the attacks of an unknown alien lifeform. "Worlds Apart" originally aired on March 22, 1996.
