Following a wild night out with a girl called Sylvia, Foster is receiving a refreshing sauna bath at the SHADO health farm. Drifting into semi-consciousness, he comes to to find he has been abducted by an alien and is on a UFO, which is shot down onto the Moon's surface. He survives but has to be extremely careful how he removes the helmet he is wearing. Clumsy removal would kill him because of the breathing liquid it contains. However, as he drifts in and out of consciousness, it appears that he never left the sauna. Written by

This goes right up there with the original 50s version of "Invaders From Mars" - the dreamer dreams of impossible details of people - what they're doing when he's not there to see them doing it or saying it.
Properly written - perhaps with the spa staff knocked out or such - this could have actually happened to Foster, and when they recover him, everyone gets the amnesia drug because it is traumatic not only for Foster, but for everyone else involved, including Carlin and Straker. Some written records are made and kept for exposure if certain conditions recur in the future, and some security upgrades are ordered as well.
When the drug wears off, Foster finds himself in the spa with an apparently unharmed spa staff, and he is convinced it's only a dream. They even shaved him at the right time, juiced his blood with a bit of alcohol so he thinks he is getting over the hangover.
As to comments about the dance being "wrong" for 1980 - hey, these are adults, and they're having a nostalgia party about the groovy 60s.
