Synopsis:A UFO has penetrated SHADO defences, and Mobile units are alerted. Colonel Alec Freeman is also in the area, and heads for the projected landing area. But the UFO is found by two drivers from a haulage truck, who are badly injured when it self-destructs. Having seemingly planned this, the Alien steals the truck. Freeman is told of this by one of the men, and leaves the Mobile patrol to care for them while pursuing the Alien. On the open motorway, Freeman tries to force the truck off the road but only succeeds in crashing himself. Thrown clear of the car to lie unconscious, the Alien leaves him - its own mission lies in the back of the truck... a mission which will destroy all of SHADO...
