In the year 1980 the Earth is threatened by an alien race who kidnap and kill humans and use them for body parts. A highly secret military organization is set up in the hope of defending the Earth from this alien threat. This organization is named SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organization) and operates from a secret location beneath a film studio. They also operate a fleet of submarines and have a base on the moon as well as an early warning satellite that detects inbound UFOs. UFOs can be destroyed in space by Interceptors which are launched from Moonbase. If one gets through it can be attacked in the Earth's atmosphere by a high altitude aircraft launched from one of the submarines. If a UFO also avoids this and manages to land it can be tracked and destroyed by a number of Mobiles (armored vehicles) which are deployed throughout the world. Written by

Col. Paul Foster:
What about our evidence? They've got to take notice of that.
Evidence. What's it going to look like when Henderson claims that we manufactured it, just to get a space clearance program?
Col. Paul Foster:
But we are *right*!
Sometimes, Colonel, that's not quite enough.

The closing credits of the episode "Square Triangle" play over the final scene of the episode, rather than over shots of outer space as per usual. See more »
I must have been 8 or 9 when I first saw it on TV in Los Angeles in the early 1970s. It was the show that seeded my love for science fiction a couple years before I was introduced to Star Trek. Granted, I didn't understand all of the plot lines, but I loved the miniatures, the special effects, and especially the purple hair of the moonbase crew. The theme is also rather catchy tune as a good theme should be. I'm happy to see that they're available on video and I will be ordering the set.
