Plot Summary

A U.S. bomber crashes behind the Iron Curtain. Its Fail-Safe device, however, failed to self destruct. A brilliant U.S. scientist who defected to the unnamed country is supervising efforts to take the device apart, which will yield valuable information about the entire U.S. defense system. The IMF must recover the Fail-Safe device and abduct the scientist. As part of the plan devised by Phelps, Rollin and Cinnamon will pose as U.S. scientists on a tour. Written by Bill Koenig

Trivia This appears to be the first episode in the series which has a "Your mission, should you decide to accept it" scene that is not followed by the usual Jim-selects-his-team-from-his-photo-dossier scene. The story moves directly from the flaming tape in the ash tray to the standard "final briefing" scene, where Jim and the usual team members (no guest stars on the good guys' side in this one) review the overall mission and the last details are confirmed.

Goofs When Jim starts the mission tape, there is almost no tape on the supply reel. During playback there is quite a bit of tape on the supply reel. See more »

Quotes [first lines]
Person on Tape: [voice on tape] Good morning, Mr. Phelps. Last night, one of our SAC bombers crashed behind the Iron Curtain. The plane's fail-safe mechanism did not destruct and has been taken to the Vatzia Institute, which is headed by the brilliant American physicist Paul Shipherd, who defected several years ago. If Shipherd succeeds in disassembling the mechanism, he will learn the key to our entire fail-safe system. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to recover the fail-safe before Shipherd can take it apart and bring Shipherd back. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Please dispose of this recording in the usual manner. Good luck, Jim.
