|'Fire at Rig 15'
by Bryan Cooper
"We intend to immobilise the whole of Spectrum."
Surmising that the Mysterons' latest threat - to immobilise the whole of Spectrum - refers to the Spectrum oil refinery at Bensheba, Colonel White sends Captain Scarlet and Captain Blue to safeguard Rig 15. However, the Mysterons’ interference causes a blow-out at the rig, and when fire control expert Jason Smith attempts to cap the inferno, he is killed and retrometabolised into becoming a Mysteron agent. Captain Black then instructs him to destroy the refinery...
