One more video was made.  This one was sent to Tyco to demonstrate how some of the creatures related to existing toy mechanisms.  The music was added to this tape and the others just the other day.
          Meanwhile, in spite of all the work at hand, Andy called me often and also visited in person.  Together we hammered out the story, which once again took the form of a Glossary.  Andy had a better feeling for the United Earth Force members, while the Aliens were more in my domain.  We made a good team, and had a lot of fun writing this together.
