There is no Next Episode of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons planned.
The panicked destruction of a mysterious base on Mars unleashes the wrath of an alien race calling themselves 'The Mysterons', who promise their revenge for the attack. Captain Black is taken over to act as the Mysteron's first agent on Earth. Captains Scarlet and Brown are killed and copied by the Mysterons, with orders to kill the World President!
A Mysteron sniper performs an unsuccessful attempt on the forces' new target: The Director General of the United Asian Republic, with Captain Grey arriving in the nick of time, and succeeding in disposing of the eavesdropping gunman. From then on, all personnel from Cloudbase and Spectrum H.Q. – London, along with the recovering Captain Scarlet, and his original partner Captain Blue, are dispatched to protect the Director General at all costs, whom has made arrangements to return to his home country. But the Spectrum officers are completely unaware of the inbound Mysteron-reconstructed civilian Stratojet airliner, the enemies' tool to fix and complete their assassination upon the important international foreign figure.
In the centre of London, the capital of England, a double police-escorted transporter, carrying a nuclear explosive device, built for civilian use, seemingly goes out of control, shaking of its' motor guards and its driver regaining consciousness in a back alley. The transporter, now in the remote-controlled possession of the Mysterons, has been hidden in an under construction car park. Captains Scarlet and Blue are assigned to investigate the drivers' mysterious discovery, that the famous Big Ben clock struck 13 times, which may be a clue to finding the transporter, before it destroys the whole of Central London. However, the driver's founding's are more than unreliable due to his perplexed state of memory.
At the Culver Atomic Centre, located in Yorkshire, England, Captain Black accidentally exposes himself to a short-term radioactive isotope, when detected by the security guards, causing his hesitation. Although the isotope is physically harmless, it makes him a straight-forward target when using radiation-tracking systems during Spectrum's full-scale manhunt, to uncover and apprehend the Mysteron agent.
But when the organisation is decoyed, Black manages to kidnap Symphony Angel, who disobeys direct orders from Colonel White. Instead of maintaining her aerial surveillance mission, she finds herself on death row, in a radiation chamber, and Black in absolute control, with the judgment of killing her, or letting her go free.
The Frost Line Outer Space Defence System is endangered by the Mysterons when they destroy a maintenance truck, murdering its engineer/driver in the process, as a cover to infiltrate the defence bases sited in Northern Canada, where the Mysteronised engineer intends to proceed in removing all oxygen from the bases' self-contained atmosphere.
With bases' "Red Deer" and "Cariboo" already taken down, the next base in the ring, "Big Bear", is the Mysterons' final target. But if the base is attacked also, the commander-in-chief of the defence network plans to commence a vengeful missile strike on Mars, where the main Mysteron complexes are established.
Colonel White desperately wants to prevent this from happening, and so, he assigns Lieutenant Green to his first off-base, "in-the-field" assignment, along with Captain Scarlet, to evaluate just how the bases are being cut off, and stop the maintenance engineer from triggering off a global disaster.
When a radio station relay and communications satellite is recreated by the Mysterons and its course altered towards Cloudbase, Colonel White orders it to be destroyed before it collides with the aerial base.
Infuriated at his superior for disregarding the lives of the men on-board the satellite, Scarlet declines the opportunity to be the temporary commander-in-chief of Cloudbase, and therefore, the offer is handed to the honoured Captain Blue.
Leaving for a surreptitious destination, which only White has told to Lieutenant Green about, and with harsh instructions not to publish it to anyone at all, he arrives on board the USS Panther II submarine, with the alias Robert Snow, where shortly after one of the ensign officers is, with intent, murdered and reconstructed by the Mysterons in their newest play of vengeance to kill Colonel White.
A World Air Force plane carrying Commodore Goddard and his right-hand man, being escorted by Melody Angel, is struck by lightning, and crashes, soon being reconstructed by the Mysterons.
The force broadcasts its current threat: that they aim to kill all 10 of the world's top air-chiefs, who make up the executive Supreme Command of the World Air Force, who want to discuss a plan to dissolve the war of nerves between Earth and the hostile force. They plan on doing so by holding an International Air Conference at the loneliest location in Europe; Glen Garry Castle in Scotland.
This is however unknown to Colonel White, who is awaiting the approval from Captain Scarlet that the castle's security is set up and approved. After she brings the delegates to the castle to start the conference, Symphony Angel is taken prisoner, as is Captain Scarlet, who unexpectedly discovers the brutal plan before the delegates arrive.
Leaving the air-chiefs with no warning, and in perfect firing positions to be massacred by Goddard and his personal cohort aid, will Colonel White realise in time that something is wrong? Can Captain SCarlet save the day?
General J.F. Tiempo, the Commander of the Western Regional World Defence Government, is submitted as the Mysterons' next punishment target, and the doctor who will perform a major and much-required operation on Tiempo is eradicated during a dramatic car crash involving Captain Black, and reconstructed by the Mysterons.
Spectrum are still befuddled on how the force have declared their act of retaliation as to "kill time", but Captain Magenta eventually cracks the dilemma and an elaborate game is underway by the Spectrum personnel, in order to trap the person who will take the life of the General, but the Spectrum officers discover two Msyteron secrets, which will undoubtedly assist them immensely in their continuing battle with the Mysterons.
But what they don't realise is that the doctor who will perform the neurosurgery operation on the General is a Mysteron killer.
A top-secret meeting is held with the World President and two Spectrum Intelligence Agency officers to showcase the new Mysteron electrical gun and detector. Following the inexplicable events with the late Doctor Magnus, who attempted to kill General Tiempo, the meeting takes place in the shooting grounds of an African private game reserve.
Colonel White and Captains Scarlet and Blue find themselves in a treacherous hunting sport when the Mysterons attempt to prevent Spectrum from introducing their new and innovative mobile weapons in the fight against them.
But, unbeknown to the group of men the security officer-in-charge, Captain Indigo, has been murdered in cold-blood by Captain Black and is now threatening the lives of everyone at the meeting. Can Scarlet stop him in time and save everyone?
Spectrum Intelligence imparts Captain Scarlet with a "special assignment" in which he is to consciously lose at a casino, and to place himself on their debt owners list for 5,000 credits. When this is reported to Spectrum Headquarters, Colonel White fires Scarlet on the spot, for improper use of the organisation's code of conduct.
Living in a shabby hotel room temporarily, a pair of Mysteron agents, posing businessmen, formulate a deal with the now Paul Metcalfe, with his I.O.U. for 5,000 credits, in return for a Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle which will be used to brake into the Nevada Nuclear City Complex and, with an atomic incendiary device onboard, obliterate the whole of North America.
A team of professional robbers break into a minor Spectrum Security Vault near the coast of New York, where "useless" documentation is kept, which proves quite valuable to the lawbreakers. Along with another gang member, they simulate a fake play-act for a forest lookout warden, just on the outskirts of the American capital as hopeless, potentially dangerous drunks. They set-up their car with fake lookalike puppets to deceive the warden into thinking that the 3 drunken men that he just warned has helplessly crashed off the high mountainous road, and exploded in a fireball.
The gang then takes care of the warden and, deliberately posing as Mysteronised humans, they announce the force's latest plan to destroy the Second National Bank of New York, however the real Mysterons have yet to announce this at all, except for stating that they will destroy "The Heart of New York", but Colonel White understands that the bank is more than vital to fulfill the threat, as it stocks the entire gold reserve for the whole Eastern Seaboard of the country.
The robbers nevertheless intend to achieve their goal, again by posing as senior agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and succeed in gaining entry through the Spectrum roadblock. With the entire American city evacuated, the bank is a sitting-duck, but Captain Black is awaiting their arrival, and only has fatal intentions in mind
The commanding controller of Lunarville 7 on the moon, announces that he has made direct contact with the force, and agreed to a undisturbed, and peaceful settlement, and to finally end the war of nerves. However this is a trick by the Mysterons, as the controller and his personnel aid are reconstructed agents, and have Captain Scarlet, Captain Blue and Lieutenant Green trapped on the compound when they are sent to investigate how he managed to make a deal with the Mysterons.
When suspecting that the controller and his right hand man could be Mysteron agents, they leave Lunarville 7, and travel to the Humboldt Sea on the far side of the Moon, where an enormous and potentially powerful Mysteron complex is being developed and built in Crater 101.
When the Mysterons threaten the life of the Supreme Commander of Earth Forces, Scarlet and Blue are assigned to escort him to SHEF HQ in New York
Two models, eager to make their names publicised and internationally known in France, are killed in a dramatic staged monorail train crash, while en route to Paris, and are rebuilt by the Mysterons, in a bid to assassinate Andre Verdain owner of the "House of Verdain", a top modelling & fashion design company, which keeps his real occupation as the controller of the European Area Intelligence Service a secret.
Captains Scarlet and Blue, along with Angels Symphony and Destiny are assigned to act as French newspaper photographers and stunning, attractive models, in order to guard Verdain from any Mysteron attacks, but they are absolutely oblivious of the presence of the two female model doppelgangers.
The Mysterons present to Spectrum their new act of avenge; to kill one of the Angel pilots, and with Destiny on vacation, she is their apparent target. Captains Scarlet and Blue fly to Paris to pick her up and accompany her back to Cloudbase.
On the way back, three brand new un-painted Angel Interceptors, reconstructed from those that were destroyed in a scorching warehouse fire, open fire upon the Spectrum personnel, but a daring and enthralling aerial dogfight between the Mysteron aircraft and the real Spectrum Angels ensures, testing Melody Rhapsody and Harmony's outstanding skills and training to the maximum.
The Australian Spectrum Hovercraft Centre, Koala Base, the university-style academy where several trainees are sent to brush up their skills and sit their practical and mental exams to become Spectrum hovercraft pilots, is the most likely place for Captains Scarlet and Blue to investigate, where several explosive sabotages have been made upon Koala's state-of-the-art hovercrafts, hence why the Mysterons latest threat states that there is a traitor within the world security organisation, and that it threatens to tear it apart from within.
Already settling on a few probable suspects, including the cadet leader, their suspicions rise even further when their room is set ablaze when sleeping. But when attending a routine test-run the next day, with one of their selected suspects, the duo discovers that the traitor isn't quite what they expected...
A Variable Geometry Rocket is hijacked by a Space Major Reeves, an old friend of Colonel White, who launches the space-plane and makes a quick departure in a fighter jet with the rocket's flight programme unit, to which only he knows the 4-letter self-destruct code, to obliterate the rocket before it knocks out an essential target, which happens to be Base Concord, the state-of-the-art airbase where the rocket originally left from.
Captains Scarlet and Blue are assigned to self-destruct the rocket before it reaches Base Concord, but to accomplish this, they have to check 10,000 possible 4-lettered code-words, starting from 'ABLE', and they don't even know that Reeves has set the destruct code-word as 'ZERO'.
This episode concludes from where Captain Scarlet, Captain Blue and Lieutenant Green left the remains of the Lunarville 7 compound, where before they discovered a brand new Mysteron complex being assembled in Crater Number 101 of the Humboldt Sea, situated on the far side of the Moon. The power source will also provide Spectrum with ample opportunity to somehow come into direct contact with The Mysterons themselves, to try and come to a peaceful settlement.
All three men volunteer to carry out a full-scale expedition by infiltrating the complex and removing its power source, so it won't become of any harmless use and so the Mysterons will not be able to reconstruct the whole complex after it's destruction.
However, the bomb which is transported to destroy the entire complex is set for 10:00 S.E.T. instead of the agreed Midnight deadline, by a Mysteron agent, disguising himself as a technician officer of Lunarville 4, the space-base that equipped and informed the 3 Spectrum officers, in order to perform the mission.
Captains Scarlet and Blue travel to the Himalayas to supervise and administrate Spectrum's new phase to monitor signals from a space satellite that has been launched into the orbit surrounding Mars, and to snap-shot high resolution detailed pictures of the planet, which will be relayed and received by the large mountain satellite station that the probe was launched from.
The second satellite, with the first acting as a decoy, successfully lands on Mars, and sets to have Spectrum successfully completing the code-named "Project Sword" operation, but the whole carefully planned arrangement is placed under threat when one of the participating technicians ostensibly falls dead and is brought back to life by the Mysterons, with one instruction: to sabotage the observatory and to interrupt the satellites' transmission before Earth comes to learn every single detail about the force and prevent them from continuing the war of nerves and retaliation against the planet.
Concluding from where "Crater 101" left off, Spectrum take a chance by commencing a maximum security operation to bodyguard radio communications expert, Doctor Kurnitz from the Nash Institute of Technologies, up to Cloudbase to send a broadcasted voice message by Colonel White to the Mysterons base on Mars, in an effort to solve their differences and to end the raging war of nerves between them.
But the Mysteron pulsator stolen by Captain Scarlet during the expedition to Crater 101 is used as an explosive charge to start a chain reaction on-board Cloudbase which will no doubt utterly destroy the aerial base. With Scarlet drawn away by Captain Black to prevent him from saving his fellow officers, the world-security organisation known as Spectrum is condemned to be crippled.
A flaming 1000 feet inferno at a deliberately impaired oil-drilling rig, Rig Number 15, attracts the attention of Spectrum when the Mysterons explain their new threat to "immobilize" the international- security organisation, which would render all their aerial, sea and land vehicles useless.
With the ultra-sonic oil wells and Spectrum's main oil refinery at Bensheba not so far from Rig 15, and possible targets, explosive specialist Jason Smith is hired to extinguish the fire with his vast range of high explosive charges.
Approaching the blazing rubble, Smith falls down in front of his tractor and is reconstructed by the Mysterons The fire is extingyished, but the real Smith is buried in the rubble by his duplicate.
The next day, the doppelganger Smith departs early from the site leaving his original body near the downed rig alerting Captain Scarlet that the Mysteron is on his way to the Bensheba oil refinery to annihilate its entire processing plant.
The Chief Test Pilot of Slaton Air Base is killed and reconstructed in a staged car crash by Captain Black, but when two medical doctors pass by, they revive the test-pilots' original body, named Major Gravener.
Following this miracle, the Mysteron Major Gravener attempts to leave Slaton Air Base in a fighter jet armed with a live nuclear warhead, but is stopped in time when the base office is contacted by the hospital who revived the real Gravener.
With Spectrum investigating the Mysterons' latest threat concerning the annihilation of the world capital, Futura City, they are alerted about the bewildering incident and use the real Gravener in a risky operation as the bait to discover if the Mysteron's will fall for the Major Gravener, and spring a net on the wanted Captain Black, even when the Mysteron doppelganger is already dead.!
Spectrum are involved with the safe, quiet transportation of escorting the world's leading astrophysicist, Doctor Congrad, to a conference with the World President at Lake Toma in Switzerland.
After boarding their mysteriously-empty flight, which could possibly be due to it being the "slack" season with planes flying usually 3/4 empty but with no hostesses around, Captains Scarlet and Blue become suspicious, and realise that they are trapped on board the airliner, along with two tagging-along and over-confident news reporters. They soon learn that there aren't any pilots flying the machine, immediately suspecting the Mysterons are controlling it.
But that's not the least of their worries when the plane starts to descend rapidly, and its nose pointing straight in the direction of the French Alps.
Once again, the Mysterons crypic threats make Spectrum believe they are targeting the Angels for a second time, but it isn't actually one of the Angels, it's one of their home cities. Or so Spectrum thinks...
A report is received from a biological research station on the outskirts of Manchester, England, regarding the theft of the phial of the K-14 virus. This is a revolutionary and brand new strain that has the capability to kill 10 million people. Captain Scarlet and Captain Blue start a timed race to find the station's research assistant suspected of the theft, who is the only person to be granted access to it, Judy Chapman.
Assessing that the force's target is the Boulder Dam of Los Angeles, which the city's name stands for "The Angels", Scarlet places his indestructible life on the line to recover the phial, although he soon faces imminent death.
The Hotspot Mining Complex, situated at the North Pole, is responsible for producing from the only existing natural source, commercial quantities of tritonium alloy, which is being used for constructing the nose casings for a rocket. General Rebus, the commander-in-chief of the Space Administration, is hoping to send the rocket to Mars, presumably to perform in depth research assignments regarding the Mysterons.
Captains Scarlet and Blue travel to the North Pole to act as security supervisors, in the inevitable time that the Mysterons may strike upon the complex, which they do when they take control over a maintenance engineer and instruct him to disconnect the massively high voltage current power lines between the booster power station and the tower.
The 100,000 volt current is crucially-needed, as the heating rods located under the tower keeping the below-freezing ice at bay, and when the current is distorted, the ice will surround the tower, slowly but surely crushing the structure of the entire building, and if lost, no air, no power, no tritonium alloy, no Spectrum radio-wavelength, and the most imperative of all, no space exploration fleet.
A newly produced core reactor is being transported to the Manicougan Power Complex, which is near enough found near the Atlantic Seaboard of North America, which the Mysterons have announced that they will submit a "heavy blow to the prestige of the world."
While conducting security checks within the designated area, it becomes aware that a missing, off route Transporter 43, which has already inadvertently crashed over the edge of a demolished bridge, thanks to Captain Black's deliberate diversion of the planned route, is what the Mysterons are using to smuggle the reactor.
With the core reactor already being aerially ferried in a shipping helicopter, and with the controller at the Expo 2068 construction site looking down at the barrel of Captain Black's hand-gun, Spectrum are back to square one before they can investigate the reactor situation.
It becomes apparent however, that the copter's target is the Expo 2068 site, and evidence confirms that the thermal safety valve has been removed from the reactor, with a rapidly descending countdown already initiated, and when zero approaches, the reactor will impend a nuclear explosion.
Mervin Brand, a reporter for The Tribune newspaper, is killed in his jet by thunder lightening while en route to the press conference with President Roberts. When reconstructed promptly by the Mysterons, so Tribune Control don't suspect that the real Mervin Brand has crashed and died, the Mysteron Brand continues his flight to the press conference, but is stopped in his tracks by the Angels, who have strict instructions to attack & destroy any aircraft violating the restricted airspace over the President's residence, due to his life being under siege by the Mysterons.
His arrogance and egotism doesn't assist matters, as he believes the enemy foes preparing to kill him will not achieve their latest ploy of revenge, and ignores the fact that the Mysterons killed the Director-General of the United Asian Republic.
Spectrum continue to secure his residence, but when the President reveals the new atomic-liner ship, built by the Trans-Pacific Shipping Corporation, is being named after him and is set to be released from port today, Captain Scarlet grasps that the Mysterons intend to destroy the "President Roberts" ship, and not the man himself.
Professor Gabriel Carney, an awarded scientist for designing original electronics, is assassinated at his own gadgets-fulfilled home by Captain Black, in order for the Mysterons to use his skills and knowledge of the hi-tech subject to kill the three joint presidents of the Congress of Europe, additionally recognised as The Triumvirate of Europe. The names of those three men are: Conrad Olafson, John L. Henderson and Joseph Meccini, and this specific trio of men are apparently dubbed the most powerful figures on Earth, after the World President.
The Mysterons elect Conrad Olafson as the first to be killed, whom is located in an underground suite, 40-feet underground Vandon Base, a maximum security centre where plentiful Spectrum security personnel are scattered over, and in addition, the Angels commencing repeated aerial patrols over the area and Captain Ochre acting as the officer in charge of security.
Their attention is diverted instantly by a realistically audible incoming military assault & tank formation on the far West Sector of the base, which Carney has simulated by broadcasting recorded sound effects of a real attack via expensive speakers.
While is equipment, located in the far woods 1 mile away, has the attention of all security officers of the base, Carney infiltrates the un-guarded East Sector and drops an incendiary device into an air-vent. Thinking the bomb has plunged 40-feet below to destroy Olafson's underground suite, it has in fact stopped at ground level, thanks to Spectrum's rational ingenuity by converting the air-vent into a dummy inlet and cutting of it's air-duct, but the explosive fully demolishes the main building above ground.
With Olafson safe, leading to the Mysterons into believing he is dead, Spectrum are left with no clues of which of the remaining two joint presidents is next on the assassination list: Henderson, or Meccini. Even though they are both protected at separate maximum-security locations, Spectrum realise that this mysterious Mysteron agent is one of the toughest and challenging they have ever faced, and is capable of killing both men.
An SKR4 recovery vehicle is sent by the Euro-Space Tracker Station to destroy a live rocket, containing a malfunctioning destruct system, but ends being blown out of orbit and completely destroyed, when it collides with a considerably large meteorite. Re-created and controlled by the Mysterons, it becomes the bombing weapon, which will accomplish the forces' newest target: the Najama Complex, a vital colossal desalination plant, situated by the foothills of the Andes mountains. Its purpose is to process seawater from the Pacific Ocean, and irrigate the interior, and without it, hundreds of square miles would regress to waste land.
The Spectrum Cloudbase officers host a non-permitted party, excluding the ultimately strict Colonel White, to celebrate the 1st anniversary of the world security organisation, with the assistance of an anonymous well wisher supplying the champagne, which has in fact been spiked with an organic compound which causes sporadic amnesia and general irresponsibility.
After being severely cautioned by the Colonel, whom discovers the party and becomes very angry at his personnel for not receiving official permission to celebrate the anniversary, the Mysterons announce their intentions to destroy the World Navy Base of Atlantica, an invulnerable underwater complex protected by sea-to-air rockets and offensively-equipped submarines.
Captains Blue and Ochre are handed the assignment to disband a wreckage which is being carried by heavy currents towards the Atlantica base, but the champagne has already taken control over them, turning them into juvenile rebelists.
Captain Black manages to changeover their assignment papers with irrelevant ones which order them to destroy Atlantica's Defence Control Tower, which they proceed in doing, and eventually annihilate the whole complex.
The threat that Spectrum have been awaiting for had to come, and Cloudbase being the principal headquarters of the organisation makes it an obvious target which would make seizing control over Earth a lot more easier for the Mysterons in order for them to complete their raging war of nerves, so the "aircraft carrier in the sky" is targeted for destruction.
With Symphony Angel stranded in the desert due to an unknown explosion on her Angel Interceptor, forcing her to eject, Captain Blue especially becomes agitated, for obvious romantic reasons, at the fact that she could die.
With instructions for any aircraft entering a 100-mile radius of the airbase to be destroyed, and itself sealed from all external contact, the Mysterons themselves decide to visit Earth to obliterate Cloudbase personally, making this threat the most vengeful of all their past avengements.
While relaxing at a smart countryside restaurant during a late evening, Captain Blue, accompanied by Captain Scarlet, starts to feel strange after drinking a cup of black coffee.
When Scarlet issues himself to fetch their coats, Blue instantaneously disappears, and when awakening, finds himself sitting in Lieutenant Green's chair back on Cloudbase, with a Spectrum Intelligence agent, who calls himself Colgan, sitting in Colonel White's chair.
He explains that Blue has been absent without leave for three months, and must prove his identity by disclosing top-security information; the Spectrum cipher codes, before he can return to active duty.
Without having to do this, Captain Blue instead tells the story of three Spectrum assignments involving the Mysterons: the nuclear attack on London, the mission of destroying the Mysteron complex in Crater 101, and the prevention of a Mysteronised Commodore and his aid from slaughtering the Supreme Command of the World Air Force at the Scottish Glen Garry Castle, which wasn't released to the press.
But Colgan still continues to question Blue regarding the cipher codes, whom hasn't caught on the fact that this mysterious S.I. officer is truthfully a Mysteron agent, and the Cloudbase interior a replica of the original, located in an abandoned warehouse.
