Storyline

A meteorite lands on the Moon following an abortive UFO attack and the Moonbase's video and radio links with SHADO fail. Foster suspects that Dalotek, a private mining company with a nearby base whose operations are opposed by Straker, may have accidentally been using the SHADO frequency, but, even after a further black-out in which a module crashes fatally, Dalotek is ultimately exonerated. Foster has hit it off with Jane Carson, Dalotek's glamorous communications officer, but Dalotek staff are subjected to amnesia treatment to make them forget the incident so that, when she meets Foster a year later, she does not recognise him.

Poor Colonel Foster...
4 May 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This particular episode is a flashback--having apparently occurred six months earlier. For some odd reason, Moonbase keeps periodically losing its ability to make and receive transmissions back to Earth. This places them at a much greater risk for attack and it's imperative that they discover why this is occurring. One possibility is that a nearby base on the moon that is owned by Daloatek might, somehow, be accidentally be doing something that might cause these outages. What really is happening is something different altogether.

There is an interesting subplot as well. During the course of meetings with Dalotek's moon base, Colonel Foster falls for a lady who works for this organization. However, their budding romance is doomed--as you'll find out about if you see this interesting episode.

Overall, a pretty good episode and yet another one well worth seeing.
