Plot[edit | edit source]
A strange alien pod is found and taken to a nuclear research facility. The Blackwood Project is summoned to investigate, but their authority is soon overridden by a mysterious Project 9.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
A small alien vessel with its inert pilot are discovered and placed in a nuclear-powered underground United States Air Force base. The team begins studying it, but Col. Alexander of the Air Force arrives with orders placing him in charge. His people fail to open the craft with drill and laser. Norton advises Harrison that sound feedback might work, and it does. The experiments begin.
Alexander injects himself with alien tissue, hoping to gain alien powers. The alien pilot revives and enters the ventilation system. Alexander works on top-secret, military technology development. The alien taps into their phone line and accesses the Blackwood Project computer files. Then, with fuel from the base reactor, the alien contaminates almost the entire base, possesses Alexander and escapes. Ironhorse and Harrison destroy the fleeing alien with the laser.
