Publisher's Summary

Experience one of television’s greatest science-fiction series, The Twilight Zone™ - fully dramatized for audio! Featuring a full cast, music and sound effects and today’s biggest celebrities in modern radio dramatizations.
Astronauts William Fletcher and Peter Craig – each of whom happens to be the chief thorn in the other's side – set down in a canyon on another planet to repair their ship. While scouting around, Craig finds a city populated by people no bigger than ants.
He begins terrorizing the population by crushing three of their buildings (Fletcher interferes with his destruction), proclaiming himself a god; although Fletcher said that the people are no different than we are, but Craig believes that they've "been created in his image" - even going so far as forcing them to build a life-size statue of him. Fletcher comes to inform him the repairs are done and they can depart, but Craig pulls a gun on him and orders Fletcher to leave him alone; there's no room for two gods.
Fletcher leaves disgustedly, and immediately another ship lands. Two spacemen, big as mountains, emerge (they're repairing their ship). One of them picks Craig up and accidentally crushes him. The Little People rejoice at the death of their bullying "god", pulling the statue of Craig down, on top of his lifeless body.

I ♥ Maryland

A so-so story, but the dialog between the Commander and the sexy computer Maryland makes this a MUST for any true fan of the genre. Believe me, it's worth the price.

Great episode, DON'T READ THE PUBLISHER'S SUMMARY!

A simple but very enjoyable episode. As is too often the case with these Twilight Zone Episodes, the publisher's summary gives away the whole story. If you have read the summary - no need to buy this one. Way to ruin a good listen Audible...
