Lunarville 7


THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE MYSTERONS; WE KNOW THAT YOU CAN HEAR US, EARTHMEN. WE HAVE NO QUARREL WITH THE MOON, AND WE ACCEPT THEIR OFFER OF FRIENDSHIP; BUT WE WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE OUR REVENGE AGAINST THE EARTH. WE WILL BE AVENGED.

The Moon declares itself an independent world from Earth, and refuses to take sides in the War of Nerves. Captains Scarlet and Blue and Lieutenant Green visit one of the Moon's colonies*, Lunarville 7, and discover that an unauthorised complex is being built in the Humbold Sea.

They are given special discs that they must carry that identifies them to the central computer, SID. They are then taken outside in a Moon-mobile† by the Lunar Controller's PA, Orson. Captain Scarlet expresses an interest in seeing the Humbold Sea, but Orson refuses adamantly to take them there.

Later on, in their quarters, Scarlet discovers a bug, but soon puts it out of action. The trio proceed to steal a Moon-mobile and make their way to the Humbold Sea, where Green discover a strange light coming from Crater 101. In further investigation, they discover a Mysteron Complex, like the one on Mars.

Back at Lunarville 7, the Lunar Controller and Orson discover that the Spectrum agents have gone missing, and reveal themselves as Mysterons

Captain Scarlet orders SID to prepare a lunar rocket. He switched his recognition disc with the Lunar Controller, so SID will not take orders from the Lunar Controller, who destroys Lunarville 7 in a fit of rage.

* Would they need a passport and visa to do this, if the Moon is an independent colony?
† Surely the most ridiculous and inefficient vehicle ever built. Even on the moon, the phase between landing and taking off must use up much more energy than a wheeled or tracked vehicle would.
