The Aliens fight back as SHADO draws in, and Foster is injured. Conroy transports the Aliens to a hospital in his private chopper, where the surgeon admits defeat because the Alien rejects the human heart he has; a similar replacement would just produce the same issue.

A signal is sent out to lure Skydiver into a trap, instructing the skipper to construct a bomb. The metal fishing net catches the skydiver, and the Alien detonates a bomb on board. The Alien, on the other hand, has failed to account for the skipper, who harpoons the Alien, allowing Carlin to retrieve the bomb and throw it into the water before it explodes.

Straker Smells A Rat Issue 46

When UFOs are spotted, Straker is on an inspection trip of Moonbase. Captain Sayers conducts an Interceptor flight, but the UFOs manage to install a limpet device on SID before they are destroyed. Moonbase is effectively blinded as a result of the ear-splitting boom that clogs all communications. Sayers offers to pilot an Interceptor in an attempt to disable the gadget, but the pilot is actually a traitor working with the Aliens. Near Mars, a large UFO fleet has gathered and is preparing to attack. Having appeared to be effective in dealing with the device, Sayers returns to Moonbase and tries to activate the system, but he is outmanned. Straker suspected something, and Sayers was discovered to be wearing ear plugs, which insulated him from the jamming signal, which would have blown all communications if he had restarted the system. The gadget is deactivated by a backup mission, and the Alien fleet is annihilated.

The Alien Ally Issue 48

Recent incidents have seen UFOs elude SHADO over the Moldavian Alps, according to Alec Freeman. Freeman and co-driver Matthews crash through a barrier and into Moldavia in search of a landing UFO after failing to persuade border authorities of their mission. They lose the UFO as a result of the delay, and they are apprehended by Moldavian forces and taken before Karasko. The commander claims that, unlike Freeman, the Aliens have committed no crimes against his country, and the two are freed – without their phones – back across the border. Straker decides to use his status as “film producer” to go on a site scouting trip to Moldavia. Straker visits a local at Dvarksberg, the UFO’s last known location, who tells him about the legend of “evil dwarves who kidnapped children,” and how it has taken on a new meaning. Straker recognises the abduction pattern and flees, but he has drawn the military’s notice. Straker stands in the mountains, watching as a chopper transports Karasko to a cave, where he is greeted by an Alien. Straker kidnaps the chopper and uses it to incite the Moldvian military in the area. They pursue him into the cave, where he hides, resulting in a battle between the soldiers and the Aliens. The military turns on Karasko, and Straker shows the men frozen Moldavians awaiting transport to the Alien world. After the base is destroyed, the Moldavian general decides that it is time for his country to join the rest of the world.

Clouds Of Madness Issue 49

Interceptor One destroys a UFO near the Moon, but it also jettisons small metal canisters that Interceptors Two and Three, even with computer-guided missiles, are unable to strike. Earth receives a warning from Moonbase, but even Sky One will not be able to eliminate all of them. Straker chooses to deal with them on the ground, so Alec Freeman and new recruit Hoyle are sent to the task. The canisters appear to be harmless, but as Hoyle approaches one too quickly, he is overcome by gas. Freeman pushes Hoyle clear while masking his face, but Hoyle suddenly becomes violent. I’m going to knock him out. There would be horrible rioting if any canisters fell in a town, Freeman realises. Straker jumps from a SHADO plane to join Freeman and examine another close landing with scant time to spare. This is in the Duke of Brandon’s exclusive estates, but Straker and Freeman must contend with game animals rendered insane by the gas. They are saved by a recovering Hoyle, who drives the car under the tree, while they climb a tree to avoid enraged bulls. Straker gets an idea from Freeman’s suggestion of shotguns to oppose other canister landings. Modified missiles that break up into tiny individual shells are utilised, much like shotgun pellets, and SHADO has won for the time being.
