Plot[edit | edit source]

After more than a year of being resisted by humans, the aliens are finally shaken by the arrival of a familiar enemy that has arrived on Earth. But is the enemy of our enemy our friend?

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Q'tara, a female android from the planet Q'arto, kills 86 aliens in four days. The team sets a trap to capture the aliens. Q'tara appears, captures Ironhorse and kills all but one alien. Reporting to the Advocates, the survivor mistakenly identifies Suzanne as Q'tara.

Q'tara probes Ironhorse's mind for information, then sends him to tell the others that she's actually an ally. Meanwhile, the Advocates locate Q'tara and, with a special weapon, lead an assault force disguised as firemen. They attack while Harrison, Suzanne, Norton and Ironhorse meet with her, but are beaten off. All four humans are seriously wounded. Q'tara heals their wounds, promising to return within the year. Then, she calls home, referring to humanity as a new food source, and leaves.
