In Mexico, Thrush operative DeSada covets Project Gamma, a "rocket transport" that can travel 5,000 mph. Scientists who are developing the aircraft are being abducted by DeSada and their knowledge "drained" by a high-tech device. April and Mark dodge death traps as they seek to halt the plot. Among them: a remote-controlled car with April inside headed over a cliff and a roll of wicker wrapped around Mark that has been whetted and is rapidly shrinking around the U.N.C.L.E. agent.

Even a great cast with Fernando Lamas and Alejandro Ray can't save this episode. Lamas and ray have the great charm and sense of humor that rises above this mediocre script. Once again, foreign agents are looking for a formula. Once again, they kidnap a scientist and eliminate witnesses, and once again, the two Latinos are paired in a machismo contest over the girl. There is nothing extraordinary about the script. What is interesting is that Fernando Lamas later returned to the series, this time playing a different character, but again in a mediocre script. The problem with the writers is that while certainly all of them can't be winners, there are a few real gems. The producers should have allowed certain writers to remain as creative consultants.
