    Steve Austin meets up with his friend and kosmonaut-collegue Vasili Zhukov. After some cold war comradship and a bit of 70's sexist talk, they rush of to Kamkov Island, just hit by an earthquake.

    Vasili's fiance, Irina, is trapped underground together with an atomic bomb, programmed to destroy the whole installation.

    We get a lot of Soviet symbols (Red stars, flags, uniforms, even a bunch of Lenin-posters), but by lack of a real story this episode is plainly dull. What should have been a claustrophobic huit-clos, turns in to a lot of running, even crawling along endless corridors.

    Zhukov who risks his life to save Irina, gets himself executed in the most stupid way by a security laserbeam, just before Steve stops the nuclear threat... 2 seconds before detonation.

    Stupid indeed.
