Plot[edit | edit source]

The time to reproduce, and thus increase their army, has come for the aliens. But the offspring are endangered by radiation and the aliens take a risky move to ensure their future.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Alien eggs dying in the cavern's heat are moved to an icehouse to hatch.

Quinn tells Cash, Suzanne's ex-husband and reporter, that she works for a secret government operation to kill illegal aliens in the United States. Cash tries to blackmail her into giving him information for a story on the Blackwood Project, but she refuses.

Prompted by Norton's intercepts, Harrison and Ironhorse steal an egg from the icehouse for Suzanne to examine. When Ironhorse's commandos attack and destroy the remaining eggs, Cash follows them in and, seeing the aliens, agrees to keep silent.
