Saturday at 11PM MDT The Ark In Space movie version

The story that goes *before* the one New Mexicans saw last week. The 4th Doctor, Sarah, and Harry arrive on Space Station Nerva, where the last remnants of Earth's civilization sleep away, waiting for the signal to wake up and return to Earth. The signal is thousands of years overdue, and a secret menace threatens to wipe this bastion of humanity out of history.
