Episode Summary

EDIT
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...moreless

  • Bit boring really...

    6.0
    Apart from a couple of hovercraft scenes and some explosions when they run out of control and crash, there's not really that much in this episode that is on interest. Of course, as the one and only appearance of the Spectrum hovercraft, this episode deserves a fair amount of attention but it won't 'wow' you like other episodes. Annoyingly, we never find out what caused the fire in Scarlet and Blue's room, even though the list of suspects was hardly very long given that Machen never tried to hide that he hated Scarlets guts. Also, rather anti-climatically, the traitor mentioned in the episode title turns out not to be some Mysteron reconstruction as usual, but a dodge screw from the hovercraft machinery. A fair episode, but pretty boring.moreless
  • Captains Blue and Scarlet in Oz.

    9.0
    The only downside of this episode was the unneeded flashback scenes from the pilot episode.



    At Koala Base, there's a spate of exploding Hoverjets, but what's the cause?



    What's interesting in this episode is the paranoia created by the Mysterons.



    There's no Captain Black.



    The crew of Koala Base think Captain Scarlet is the traitor because of his past 'involvement'...so Captains Blue and Scarlet's room becomes inflamed with fire...
