Produced in England, this sci-fi adventure was set 10 years in the future - in the year 1980 - when it was discovered that UFO's posed an imminent threat to Earth. The general public was not yet aware of this development, so a secret multinational defense command was set up under a movie studio and called SHADO - Supreme Headquarters, Alien Defense Organization. Its commander was Edward Straker, whose cover was that of a movie producer.
Other cast members included: Col. Freeman, his second-in-command; Capt. Karlin, pilot of the Seagull X-ray craft and Lt. Ellis, in charge of SHADO's Moon Base Control.
The stories were filled with violence, green-faced aliens, sexy females and an array of scientific hardware. Among the "toys" were a Space Intruder Dectector called SID, an underwater airplane launcher and the ultra-futuristic Moon Base itself.
