      Time stops still - and Commander Straker runs amok. A lot can happen in a fraction of a second!
      An attack of madness seems to have struck Commander Ed Straker (Ed Bishop). Astonished members of SHADO Control reel as he savagely smashes equipment, knocks Paul Foster (Michael Billington) across the control room, and then rushes crazily out of the building, hitting at anyone in his way.
      He is caught at last and when a dead body is found he is suspected of being a killer. But what has happened to him? The only clue comes from his secretary Miss Ealand (Norma Ronald), who says that Straker had gone off to the airport that morning to pick up Virginia Lake (Wanda Ventham).
      But Virginia cannot remember what has happened, and it is a long time before Straker himself can piece together the mystery, which he does after being given a powerful truth drug. He is able to recall driving back with Virginia and seeing a green flying saucer which tries to destroy their car. They escape and arrive back at SHADO headquarters to face another shock. Above ground, in the film studios and on the studio lot, life seems to have come to a halt. Everyone and everything is in a state of suspended animation.
      Down below, in SHADO, everything is similarly motionless. Straker tries to contact Moonbase, but nothing happens. And then he and Virginia realise that they themselves are slowing down. Desperately, they make for the medical centre and Straker is able to reach for an injection which speeds up brain, muscles and coordination and returns them to normal. They realise now that an alien power has succeeded in breaking the time barrier.
      Then a voice rings out. It is a challenge to Straker, mocking him. And the owner of the voice reveals his identity. He is a radar operator named Turner (Patkick Allen). Turner is the aliens' instrument in this latest to smash SHADO and he has been given the power to cheat time. And how can you catch a man who has time on his side? The chase is grimly eerie, and its outcome the explanation for Straker's extraordinary behaviour when time returns to normal without anyone realising that it has even stopped ...

      Out-of-this-world action and suspense in orbit as Earth's defence organisation comes under threat from aliens. At Moonbase Control, the defence team wages a spectacular battle with alien invaders, explores mysteries of the universe, discovers computer love affairs and encounters dying extra-terrestrials who need human organs for survival. One of the best of its genre, UFO combines the remarkable talents of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson with those of special effects director Derek Meddings. With a stellar cast including Ed Bishop, Michael Billington and George Sewell. ARD-alpha presents this british pioneer SciFi-Series in the original English version.
