      Episode 14, "Mindbender": Two members of an interceptor crew go berserk and try to kill their colleagues. Yet they believe they are killing their enemies.
      Why should a UFO get within three miles of Moonbase and then destroy itself? This is something Ed Straker (Ed Bishop) wants to know, and it is why he and Paul Foster (Michael Billington) go to Moonbase to investigate. But little can be found, and two members of an interceptor crew, Conroy (Al Mancini) and Dale (Craig Hunter), who have been searching the area, return empty-handed except for a diamond-like rock which Conroy has picked up and decided to keep as a souvenir.
      When the two men return, Conroy goes to the Control sphere and stops dead in his tracks with a look of utter disbelief and horror on his face when he sees, instead of the usual personnel, three dirty, unshaven cowboys. As one of them goes for his gun, Conroy lunges at him, and then takes on all three. He then runs out of the Control sphere leaving behind him, not three cowboys as he has believed he has seen, but the actual Control personnel. One of them, Nina (Dolores Mantez), immediately gives the internal emergency alarm.
      Before Conroy can be found he has shot his friend Dale, again believing him to be an intruding cowboy. When Straker and Foster catch up with him, he turns on them and Foster has no alternative but to shoot him.
      A little later, there is another dramatic development when Captain "Beaver" James (Charles Tingwell) of SHADO runs amok in SHADO Headquarters, attacks one of the operatives and shoots a guard in the belief that they are aliens. During the search for him, he shoots another guard and then shoots at Straker, who is unable to prevent his entering Control and getting hold of Virginia Lake (Wanda Ventham). Using her as a hostage, Beaver calls for Straker, saying he has got the alien's leader.
      To the crazed Beaver, everyone he sees is an alien, and he believes that the aliens have taken over. Between them, Straker and Paul Foster succeed in tricking him and saving Virginia, but in doing so Beaver is fatally shot. Tragically, he too has touched the deadly moon rock which Conroy found - and now it is Straker's turn to come under its evil influence ...
