Synopsis:The "Operation Babylon" of the title is the aliens' plot to turn the speech of the SHADO operatives into gibberish so they cannot communicate with each other and coordinate a defense against a UFO invasion. The title is derived from the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel in Babylon, where God is said to have caused humanity to use different languages in different parts of the world, instead of the single language once said to have been spoken by all, so that it became difficult for all to be understood.
