Computer Affair is an episode from the UFO TV series.


In a tragic defeat for SHADO, a UFO manages to get past three interceptors, destroying one, and through Earth's outer defences. Commander Straker orders Lieutenant Gay Ellis, who issued the unsuccessful evasive instructions, and the two remaining pilots to be psychoanalysed and the results fed into a computer. The computer's astonishing verdict is that Gay Ellis and one of the pilots, Mark Bradley, are in love, and Gay's misjudgement was caused by worry over Mark's safety. When the two are posted together again, this time in search of trespassing UFO, thy must avoid a repeat of the previous incident.
