Deidre Johnson was a 31-year old NASA scientist on the short list to become the first female astronaut to walk on Earth's moon. Instead, she and fellow scientist Phil Wheatley were sent to study a U.F.O. which had crash landed in New Jersey. Johnson discovered a document on board which she was able to deduce was a flight pattern from the planet Saturn. Before Johnson could look deeper, U.S. troops guarding the ship were killed by large Saturnian robots. As those inside the ship were knocked off their feet, Johnson was first to rise up and race to the ship's exit, thinking to herself "I was right, wasn't I? I was right!" Johnson was then killed by a crimson energy blast fired through the doorway, leaving behind her vengeful fiancée, Charles Brigham Dade.
