That's odd...the IMDb summary is NOT quite right.

Wow. When I looked at the IMDb summary for this particular episode, I wasn't sure if they were talking about the same one I saw! Yep, the episode is a bit different than IMDb indicates, so here is a better summary:

Straker is upset that there is so much space junk around the Earth and Moon. He's not only concerned about it being a menace to his ships but aliens could somehow use this space debris against us--though how is never really stated. So, Straker goes to a big-wig with the commission that controls his funding. But, it turns out that this General Henderson is a hard-headed jerk who is determined to either dismantle SHADO or at least replace Straker as its leader. It seems that Henderson is less concerned about the Earth's security as this fight has become personal.

In the meantime, the aliens did, in fact, find a way to use the space debris. An old spent rocket stage hides a tiny limpet-type device that attacks ships that come nearby. But, the problem is, it's hard to prove that is what occurred and Henderson just uses this as an excuse to say that Straker's crews are at fault. Eventually it all boils down to a fight between two men in a game of chicken.

Overall, a very good episode. While not perfect because the machismo level seems a tad too high, it is entertaining throughout and well worth seeing.
