Space Tracker Joan Harrington is a S.H.A.D.O. operative who works as a space tracker on Moonbase. Joan Harrington was one of the earliest recruits to the S.H.A.D.O. organisation (UFO: Confetti Check A-O.K.).
From the UFO2 Novel: ‘Sir.’ It was Joan Harrington. Her catsuit moulded to her like shimmering fur, she looked too languid to be on a job like this. But Freeman knew better. She had been one of his own nominees for Moonbase, and he had never had cause to regret it. On Earth perhaps he had regarded her with a not altogether official, dispassionate eye, and had even been tempted to find her an office desk not too far from his own; but up here, even more attractive in the simple uniform, she had kept herself apart - a skilled, dedicated operative in the service not of one man, but of S.H.A.D.O., Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organization. Today, though, she sounded human and appealing. Respectful, but not quite so impersonal as on his recent inspection tours. Freeman raised an eyebrow. ‘That personal requisition,’ said Joan: ‘did you take care of it?’ He wanted to keep her guessing, to tantalize her for just a few minutes. It was good to see her looking feminine for just that little while. ‘Personal requisition?’
‘It’s all right, sir . . .’
