"Ezekiel saw the wheel. This is the wheel he said he saw. These are unidentified flying objects that people say they are seeing now. Are they proof that we are being visited by civilizations from other stars? Or just what are they? The United States Air Force began an investigation of this high strangeness in a search for the truth. What you are about to see is part of that 20-year search."
In each episode, two officers of the United States Air Force - in the first season, Major Jake Gatlin (William Jordan) and Staff Sergeant harry Fitz (Caskey Swaim), in Year 2, the Gatlin character was replaced by Captain Ben Ryan (Edward Winter) - would investigate two or three alleged sightings and encounters (all supposedly based on the Air Force's "Project Blue Book" files), which would be dramatized for the audience. This called for a huge number of miniature spaceship models (created by Brick Price), as well as some imaginative alien creations... and some less-than-imaginative ones; this is another 70s genre show (Ark II, Space Academy, Mork & Mindy) that rented out Bill Malone's Robby the Robot replica for an episode.
Anyway, I haven't seen Project: U.F.O. in years, so I have no idea how the show holds up - if at all. I'd like to see it again, though - if only for all the alien spaceships!
And yes - this show was called Project Blue Book in syndication and in some international markets. But it was officially Project: U.F.O. when it aired in its original network run, so please don't tell me I got the name wrong - you can check out the opening titles for both seasons HERE.
