The Earth is under attack. Aliens are harvesting human body parts in order to save their race. To stop this menace, a secret organization is formed to defend the Earth from these attacks. This organization is known as SHADO, or Supreme Headquarters, Alien Defense Organization.

These Earth defenses consist of a Moonbase with fighter spacecraft to intercept the aliens before they get to Earth, a SkyDiver submarine with a launchable fighter should they get by the Moonbase, and various ground based assault vehicles should they get by all the other Earth defenses.

The SHADO operations are coordinated from a movie studio front, known as Harlington-Straker studios. Underneath the movie studio grounds lies a vast operational complex run by the man in charge of the organization, Ed Straker.

Follow Straker and his team as they fight to ward off the alien attack on humanity and their body parts.
