COUNTDOWN 'Comic' UFO Story 1972

"Small World"

The story outline: "Commander Ed Straker arrives at Moonbase to meet Dr. Joseph Brant, who has made a discovery that is so great that he will not communicate it even on a top security channel. In his Moonbase laboratory he shows Ed Straker a microscope and, on a slide, a living animal no bigger than a speck of dust.  A newly discovered lunar mineral-based drug is the breakthrough, and Dr. Brant would like to try it on a human volunteer, which only Commander Straker can authorise . . ."

The Force Field

Story outline: "At S.H.A.D.O. Headquarters, there is a department of scientists and technicians whose sole job is to develop new security aids and devices. Though a smart group, they are treated with tolerance, for much of their research seems to be of no practical use to S.H.A.D.O. However, one August morning in 1981, Ed Straker arrives at the studios . . . "

Arctic Affair

Story outline: "Thanks to S.H.A.D.O.’s early warning systems, most UFO’s never reach Earth’s atmosphere and are dealt with in space. If an alien craft does manage to elude Moonbase’s Interceptors, other S.H.A.D.O. Defence Systems are ready to take over the job. Sky 1, the jet aircraft that combines with the submarine Diver, is one of the most effective systems . . . "
