An engineer/scientist is revived from cryogenic sleep in the future of a farm community. He is operated on to remove a tumor and needs to repair a transmitter. The transmitter is repaired and a spaceship is destroyed. The ship contained generals that will continue war that all but destroyed civilization. The remaining humans are now capable of exploring the universe with their mind.


It's Quarantine, episode 42, season 1 of the new twilight zone series that aired in 1986. It has all the features that the OP described - engineer revived from cryosleep, peaceful psionic future humans, ship full of old military types. You can view it on YouTube here.

  • Well spotted. I was thinking this was TOL : The refuge. It's got a lot of the same themes. – Valorum Nov 21 '14 at 2:05
