Plot[edit | edit source]

The aliens plant subliminal messages in a musician's recordings to brainwash a brilliant scientist into creating a cure for them against the bacteria on Earth.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The aliens use taped music with an addictive implant to hypnotize biologist Dr. Eric von Deer into developing a serum against Earth's bacteria. Suzanne arrives to study cell phase-matching with von Deer. Harrison, given a copy of the tape, succumbs to the "embed" and becomes irrational, siding with the aliens.

Meanwhile, Suzanne, suspicious of von Deer's odd behavior, subdues him, discovers his serum and alerts Norton and Ironhorse. Harrison, deprived of the music, recovers. Norton destroys von Deer's computer records. Suzanne poisons the serum with ammonia. The aliens give up the project.
