"Deadly Countdown" "Bigfoot V"


Dave McGrath, mission director at the Kennedy Space Center, confesses to Steve that his daughter, Melissa, has been kidnapped, and that her captors threatened to kill her if he did not abort the mission. Steve, who was injured during the launchpad explosion, is convinced that the kidnappers will not allow Melissa to live, even though McGrath has fulfilled his part of the bargain. He sets out to find Melissa before it's too late.
