"Sub Smash" is an episode of UFO: The Series in which a UFO disables the SkyDiver submarine and entraps its passengers on board with their own memories, forcing S.H.A.D.O. Commander Edward Straker to cope with his own claustrophobia before he and the SkyDiver passengers are rescued.

Paul Foster (Michael Billington) and Lt. Nina Barry[N 1] (Dolores Mantez) are Straker's fellow passengers on the SkyDiver submarine the UFO attacks.

Plot[]

After an underwater UFO has attacked and sunk a freight ship in the ocean, Straker, Foster and SHADO Lieutenant Nina Barry join a submarine crew to find out what they can. However, they too are attacked by the UFO's vessel and, as a result, their submarine is grounded on a ledge. Straker has to overcome his claustrophobia in order to work out an escape plan.
