GUEST STARRING:
Nicolas Coster, Judith Chapman and Barney McFadden

THE PLOT:

Buck is asked to find two defectors from a Communitst style planet who plan on making their escape during the intergaltic Olympiad. Here's the catch, this planet makes Communist Russia look like the Salvation Army. They place control devices in their people's skulls that with a touch of a button cause the holder great pain or if they disobey, it will explode taking out the victim's head.

So Buck has to find a way to either steal or sabotage the device before the great escape or he might be delivering a headless corpse.

THE OPINION:

This is a cool story, unique twist on the old defection story which was kind of hot considering the cold war was still on everyone's mind when this was aired. The astrosled was cool, but people today may not understand if they aren't old enough to understand the nature of the cold war.
