In this episode, McQ gets word from the United Nations that they’re going to try and solve the world’s money problems by letting passing alien ships dump their waste while parked over Earth.
The U.N. wanted to use the space station as a marker so the ships know where to dump their load. But it was too small. So McQ has a drive-in movie screen built. Now, the ships know where to line up to dump their waste, and they can be entertained at the same time.
