The Outer Limits; The Bellero Shield airdate Feb 10th 1964
This sweet visitor from space is one of my all time favorite Outer Limits creatures.You can spot him in The Theatre Ephemera!
this episode is loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth.“
Control Voice: (opening narration) There is a passion in the human heart which is called aspiration. It flares with a noble flame and by its light man has traveled from the caves of darkness to the darkness of outer space. But, when this passion becomes lust when its flame is fanned by greed and private hunger, then aspiration becomes ambition by which sin the angels fell.
Judith Bellero: “Someone spoke of the trembling way: a bridge between earth and heaven. When I grew up, I found it in the mythology book. Scandinavians call it the “Bifrost.” I thought of this as our “Bifrost.” A trembling way to what for me would be heaven–power, far-flung holdings, undiminishable authority!”
Bifrost Alien: ” I cannot speak your language. I analyze your eyes. In all the universes, in all the unities beyond the universes, all who have eyes, have eyes that speak, and all speak the same language.”
Control Voice: (closing narration) When this passion called aspiration becomes lust, then aspiration degenerates becomes vulgar ambition by which sin the angels fell.
