Captain Scarlet

Having completed an inspection of Spectrum’s Skybase, the U.S. Secretary of State returns to her office in New York escorted by the Angels, only to be attacked en route by three enemy Vampire jets. Although the Angels make swift work of destroying their assailants, Destiny only just manages to escape death when her aircraft is hit and sent smashing into the sea below. Destiny is brought back to Skybase, where she is instructed by Doctor Gold to spend the next thirty-six hours recuperating in Sickbay. Meanwhile, U.S. Special Security Council member Miguel Fernandez is busy working at his sea front home in Spain when he receives a mysterious email; when Fernandez reads it a strange signal causes him to slip into a trance, and compels him to walk into the ocean and drown himself. Suspecting a connection between Fernandez’s apparent suicide and the recent death of another member of the Security Council, Colonel White calls in Captain Scarlet and Captain Blue to investigate. However, when Captain Blue checks Fernandez’s computer he too reads the email and becomes infected with its virus; unaware, Scarlet instructs Blue to upload the contents of the PC’s hard drive to Skybase’s Spectrumnet computer for examination, unwittingly allowing the virus to infect every member of Spectrum’s personnel via their computer screens. Captain Scarlet and Captain Blue then set off in their Cheetah RRV – but Blue, now under the virus’ control, takes over the controls and drives the vehicle off a cliff…
