Into The Chronic Rift

The OSI Files: File 010 – The Six Million Dollar Man: “The Rescue of Athena One”
America’s first female astronaut has to pilot her damaged craft, Athena One, to Skylab with her injured co-pilot in tow. This leads to a series of problems, the first being getting a doctor up to Skylab to stabilize the injured pilot. This then leads to the discovery that bionics malfunction in space as Steve is the pilot of the recovery craft. Now, they must work together to ready a craft not meant to carry four, piloted by a woman Steve has issues with being an astronaut.

[Note: The OSI Files Podcast is presented via Facebook Live every Friday night.]
