The Control Voice: It is said that if you move a single pebble on the beach, you set up a different pattern, and everything in the world is changed. It can also be said that love can change the future, if it is deep enough, true enough, and selfless enough. It can prevent a war, prohibit a plague, keep the whole world... whole.

The Control Voice: There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We can reduce the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.

Yes, 'The Quality of Mercy' and 'The Light Brigade' from the 1995 series tie in very neatly with the classic original series story 'Demon with a Glass Hand'. In the 90s series eps humanity is fighting and losing a war against an alien species who can assume human form. In 'Demon with a Glass Hand' humanity has lost the war and been wiped out. A humanoid robot is imprinted with the memories and personalities of the human race and sent back in time pursued by the aliens in human form. He defeats the aliens in the past whilst the aliens in the future are slowly wiped out by a bio-weapon left behind by humanity. The robot's instructions are to wait in the past until the aliens are all dead then rebuild the human race using the information contained
