Please help me find a sci-fi show that I think was on the CBS Mystery Theater. It followed the story of a man involved with some space agency that was trying to find the secrets of an alien civilizations artifact in a cave on the moon. The cave was booby trapped and you could only go so far before being zapped. (Reminds me a bit of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). To keep the body count down, they used a sort of star trek transporter to make duplicates of people to actually go into the cave, preserving the individual - but there was an underlying philosophical question - was something like a "soul" lost in that duplication. This gave our main character second thoughts about participating - but never seemed to be a issue for Gene Roddenberry and other trekkers.

I never heard the end of the tale. From time to time when listening to the old radio shows, I remember that show and wonder what happened!!

Sounds a bit like Arthur C. Clarke's short story "The Sentinal" which he later expanded into the novel of 2001.

And it sounds very like the Algis Budrys novel Rogue Moon (1960)

Mike - Right on the mark. Very Happy Must have been an X-1 episode. Didn't see it in the program list, but it must be out there somewhere.

The plot summary is just what I remember of the story. I just tried to find a place it could be downloaded from, but the only luck so far is from a web page "nowdownloadall.com" but they have a membership fee, discounted right now for $35.00 but I've never heard of them and don't know if it is worth the subscription price. Any comments or other source suggestions???

And to rrrhre2s - thank you very much for the CBSRMT index.
