U.F.O. - Outer
space intruders who covet Earth's resources featured on the British sci-fi
When an alien spacecraft approaches Earth, they
are detected by
an orbiting satellite named
S.I.D. (Space Intruder Detector)
defenses. Moon Base Control
launches Interceptors to destroy their craft. If
the alien craft manages to enter Earth's
atmosphere, they are pursued by
Skydiver, a submarine and a
variety of armored land vehicles.
Why the aliens attack earth is a mystery for
they have not officially communicated any of
their motives. Visually, the aliens
wear helmets and red space suits adorned with
silver chain links. The bodies within the
suits have green tinted skin.
It believed that the alien bodies are
actually humans that have been abducted from
Earth to be used as hosts/vessels for the aliens
non-corporeal forms. It is theorized that
the aliens are diminishing in number and so need
the human bodies to maintain their race.

U.F.O. is the acronym for an Unidentified Flying
Object - an object seen in the sky whose
appearance can not be explained by logical
Many of these sightings turn out to be the sun
reflecting off of airplanes, or strange cloud
formations or weather balloons. However, some
have not been explained and have given rise to
stories of visitors from other worlds who fly
about in cigar shaped spacecraft that obtain
speeds unheard of on this planet.
In the 1940s the United States Air Force set up
an agency to deal with these sightings called
"Project Bluebook" (disbanded in 1969).
Executive producer Jack Webb sifted through
these files and from the 30% of the sightings
that were never fully explained, he created the
sci-fi drama PROJECT U.F.O./NBC/1978. Colonel
William T. Coleman, a former Head of Project
Bluebook, produced the series.
