People from Earth have landed on Moonbase Alpha, promising to take the Alphans back home. Commander Koenig, however, sees not fellow human beings, but aliens, and tries to kill some of them. Horrified, Helena stuns him with a laser gun and later, as he lies unconscious in the Medical Center, Koenig is approached by one of the aliens (for that is what they really are) who tries to smother him...

New York as seen in the episode

The real New York in 1999.
The World Trade Centre towers (finished in 1977, destroyed 2001), Battery Park and 1 New York Plaza (the black building) are the most prominent features in these shots. The aerial shot was probably taken in early to mid 1972. The Bankers Trust building (later the Deutsche Bank Building) at 130 Liberty Street in front of the towers has a yellow stripe near the top. The upper levels were still being built when this film was taken (it would open in 1974; it was badly damaged in 2001 and demolished by 2011). Fortunately more recent developments such as the World Financial Centre and Battery Park City are not visible.
