Plot Summary

After serving gallantly at Pearl Harbor, Navy Commander Don Winslow, and his pal and junior officer, Lieutenant "Red" Pennington, are assigned to the Coast Guard. There they are ordered to devote their activities to anti-fifth column work on the mainland. Don learns that The Scorpion, notorious alien enemy, is in the pay of the Japanese and is expected to lay the ground work for a Japanese attack on the Pacific coast. Constantly in peril and aided by Mercedes Colby, the daughter of a Navy Admiral, they investigate secret island-bases and battles with submarines and enemy airplanes. Written by Les Adams

Trivia In wartime the Coast Guard becomes part of the Navy. That hasn't happened since the Second World War and that point is well brought out in the serial. Winslow and Pennington are still in the Navy when the serial begins but midway through the first chapter they are both transferred to the Coast Guard just like that, same rank and everything.
