The plot, such as it is, deals with Frasier's producer Roz, who wants to do a show on the space program "because it’s 2001." Glenn is brought in to narrate, and through a series of circumstances ends up lying to Roz to protect Frasier. Once he is caught in this lie, he apologizes and adds the statement "I was misled. It's not like me to be that underhanded."
An argument ensues between Frasier and Roz, and they retire to the control room to have it out in private. As they do, Glenn -- in the studio all by himself -- begins to recite the words, completely out of context with anything else that has happened in the show, or with the action now taking place behind him in the control room. As he does so, he does not address any of the characters around him. In fact, he looks directly into the camera, solely addressing the audience at home watching throughout America.

"Back in those glory days, I was very uncomfortable when they asked us to say things we didn't want to say and deny other things. Some people asked, you know, were you alone out there? We never gave the real answer, and yet we see things out there, strange things, but we know what we saw out there. And we couldn't really say anything. The bosses were really afraid of this, they were afraid of the War of the Worlds type stuff, and about panic in the streets. So we had to keep quiet. And now we only see these things in our nightmares or maybe in the movies, and some of them are pretty close to being the truth."
Let's consider this a moment: assume that everything the doubters say is true, that Glenn was “just invited” to be on this show, and for whatever reason decided to accept. As a true American hero, a distinguished Senator from Ohio and former presidential candidate, Glenn would obviously have some leverage on the script. So imagine his reaction when he is handed his copy of the words he is to speak. In his most crucial scene, he’s asked to:
-Admit he is a liar.
-Admit that the Agency which sent him into space twice -- making him everything he is today, astronaut, Senator and American hero, not to mention a man of some personal wealth -- has also lied.
-Admit that the Brookings recommendations to cover-up any discovery of extraterrestrial ruins or life are true.
-Admit that he and his colleagues were so shattered by what they saw that they have had "nightmares" ever since.
-Admit that some film portrayals about the UFO subject are accurate.
And of course, if we were right, if the Brookings study -- which pointed to the "War of the Worlds" scenario specifically cited by Glenn in his speech as a justification for suppression of evidence of extraterrestrial activity -- were not merely a forty-year-old “recommendation” but current policy, then this is exactly the context in which Glenn would "tell all." Doing it on a comedy show would give him exactly the kind of political cover he would need to come clean.
There is one last point which puts this whole weird affair into its appropriate context.
It was Glenn who approached the "Frasier" people to do this specific show.
Now, isn't that funny?

Astronauts are the exception I think when it comes to UFO info, they are highly trained, very intelligent, and have hundreds and hundreds of hours of flight time under their belt. I think that they also have a closer touch and or glimpse on humanity than most of us, as 99.99% of people will never go into space and view our beautiful planet as they have seen it. These guys and gals are the real deal and when we have astronauts that come forward and disclose or reveal certain things about what they have seen or experienced while in space or in flight, then in my humble opinion it should be taken very seriously
