My father was a regular sci-fi genre movie viewer, and I have an unclosed thread in my past that has been haunting me over my years. I woke up as a child to see the following events unfolding on screen:
- scientists, who I believe were in white coats (and presumably about three of them), in a control room (which may have been in a room carved out of rock) utilizing their time or dimensional control machine.
- an exterior view window that looked out upon a desert or badlands panorama.
- same scientists, noting success that their journey/experiment had completed successfully, appear to show smiles of satisfaction.
- scientists exit the room and proceed into the badlands, viewable from the control room, and are visible walking into the environment as the credits begin to roll.
