"We will destroy President Roberts within the next twelve hours."

Mervin Brand, a reporter for 'The Tribune', is killed when his plane is hit by lightning, giving the Mysterons an opportunity to retrometabolise themselves a new agent. Captain Scarlet, Captain Blue and Captain Ochre are assigned to guard President Roberts, but the man is sceptical of the Mysterons' threat, and refuses to take the danger seriously. Indeed, when eleven hours pass uneventfully, Captain Scarlet suspects that he and his associates are guarding the wrong target…
