1989: ‘The Wall’ by J. Michael Straczynski

January 7, 2008

Hertzsprung-Russell rating: F105.5

Available in: Tales From The New Twilight Zone

After a secret military project opens a wormhole to another dimension (by pressing a button that says ‘OPEN WORMHOLE NOW’) the army sends in its top wormhole enterer to see what’s on the other side. And what’s on the other side is an idyllic planet inhabited by a race of peaceful aliens – space hippies, if you will – whom the army man then struggles to protect against his own military-industrial complex. The lesson here is that opening a wormhole opens up a whole other can of worms.
