X Minus One premiered in April 1955 on NBC and ran until January 1958. Like its predecessor series, Dimension X, X Minus One featured stories by the greatest names in modern science fiction: Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Clifford Simak, Robert Bloch, and many more.
Minos is such a lovely planet, as the crew of the space cruiser Explorer discover. Not a thing seems wrong with it. Excepting the food perhaps. And a disease that really isn't. They are surprised to learn they are not the first humans to arrive on Minos. In fact, there is a small colony on Minos whose inhabitants have one odd detail in common, as the Explorer's crew is soon to discover.
