David Vincent gets a job for Carver Oil in Houston as a designer; but his reason for taking the job is to find proof of alien activity. After many nights of vigil in the Carver railroad yard, he finally sees a spaceship land and discovers that an old rusted oil tanker contains alien machinery. He steals a computer tape from the tanker, and then goes immediately to Simon Carver's mansion in order to bring the old oil tycoon to the field. Unfortunately, the aliens have gotten rid of all evidence before he gets there. But David still has that computer tape. He enlists Neal Taft, a disgraced cryptographer, to find out what's on it. Meanwhile, Carver's daughter, Susan, finds herself torn between preventing a scandal for her father and betraying David, the man she loves. Written by J. Spurlin

Not an episode that particularly appealed to me (despite being written by Theodore Sturgeon); it was OK I suppose but I was a little disappointed with it. It does what it says on the tin – it is primarily concerned with betrayal caused by the aliens threatening the family of David Vincent's girl friend therefore she is forced to collude with them in telling them where a computer tape is hidden and what Vincent has found out about it - resulting in a young man's death and later her own. It has a good cast and is well acted. The alien communications centre hidden inside a rusty hulk of a railroad container reminds me of an episode of 'The X-Files'
