A shocking story of government cover-up in space! What would happen if a UFO were to crash-land on Earth? Would the government let us know? Or would they fear nationwide panic and keep it under wraps?
During a Space Shuttle mission a satellite rams an unidentified flying object. The UFO makes a crippled but safe landing in the remote southwestern desert where it is quickly carted off by government agencies to a secret Air Force base. The White House denies its existence because of upcoming presidential elections. The UFO is brought to secret Hangar 18 and the accident is blamed on the incompetence of the astronauts Bancroff (Gary Collins) and Price (James Hampton). But the two fight against this and try to hunt down the UFO and the truth. When they begin to investigate they learn that the government will stop at nothing to keep them from discovering the truth!
The stellar cast includes Darren McGavin (A Christmas Story), Robert Vaughn (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) and Pamela Bellwood (Dynasty). Stylishly directed by James L. Conway (The Boogens) who also co-wrote the story.
