An Interceptor is destroyed when it collides with a UFO, and Straker orders the responsible personel to SHADO HQ for questioning and psycho-analytic tests. The computerized results of these tests reveal that Lt. Ellis diverted the Interceptors in the incorrect order due to an emotional attachment between herself and Interceptor pilot Mark Bradley. Straker grounds Ellis, despite strong objections from Freeman. The UFO, which is at first lost in a radar blind spot, is later relocated and shot down by Sky One. The UFO crash lands in a Canadian forest, and Freeman is assigned to track it down using the mobiles. Despite the computers findings, Freeman assigns both Ellis and Bradley as part of his team. Will Lt. Ellis' judgment be affected again?
