"In an unknown country, I think it's better to travel light."

Synopsis[]

The freighter 'Kingston' is sunk in mid-Atlantic by "flying fish" missiles and an underwater cameraman dies in mysterious circumstances. Then Deep Probe 87 reports a build-up of UFOs in Area NML 12, 4 hours from Earth, and Straker discovers that the Aliens plan to bypass the SHADO defences with an elaborate deception.

Errors and explanations[]

Internet Movie Database[]

Revealing mistakes[]

  • Straker and Foster are communicating with Skydiver while wearing diving gear, but the "bite-down" oxygen mouthpieces they are using would make speech impossible. Maybe they are using ventriloquism, combined with a mini microphone in the mouthpiece or the diving cap.
