Gog (1954) - Herbert L. Strock
Plot Synopsis allmovie.com
Gog--or GOG, as it was originally released, is another of Ivan Tors' speculative melodramas about the activities of the fictional Office of Scientific Investigation. This time, OSI operative David Sheppard (Richard Egan) looks into sabotage being directed against the New Mexico installation where the first manned space station is being built. The base is under the "command" of NOVAC, an anagram for Nuclear Operated Variable Automatic Computer. It turns out that NOVAC has been overriden by enemy agants, who've reprogrammed the computer to undermine the space-station project and even commit murder.

Strock, who later helmed many episodes of Ivan Tors' Science Fiction Theater TV series.
