A mysterious fireball crashes in the wood near St Hearts. Believing it to be a UFO, curious students swarm the crash site which turns out to be an enemy satellite with military base information from across Europe. Mr Grosse, a government agent in charge of the crash site, is revealed to be an impostor working for KORPS. The team must recover the satellite's black box before it falls into enemy hands.
