This is a 6-page, self-contained story in Countdown #46, January 1, 1972.




On page 1 of the story, Captain Sayers' thoughts imply that Moonbase's Interceptors have a less than 1% failure rate in stopping incoming UFOs. 


Page 4 of the story reveals that the opening below SID's "head" is a docking port for an Interceptor (and possibly other Earth craft).


This story features what appears to be the largest fleet of UFOs assembled in an assault on Earth in the course of the UFO series, at least 26 ships.
