The aliens infiltrate the illegal drug trade in order to circulate a narcotic that will turn humans into violent killers.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Alien scientists experiment on kidnapped humans in Chicago, designing an addictive drug that makes humans homicidal. The team poses as Drug Enforcement Administration agents, investigating the city's drug deaths. The police are uncooperative until liaison officer Lt. Novak discovers their "real" cover as anti-terrorists.

A test of the aliens' drug goes awry. Lt. Novak locates their base, but to prevent a police massacre, Harrison explains about the aliens. Novak lets the Omega Squad assault the base. Meanwhile, the aliens' drug-addicted prisoners break free and destroy their captors. The Advocacy abandons the project.
