Storyline

A pilot for chartered planes learns too much about the aliens when he sees one of them get injured on a flight. The man's arm is torn up, but he doesn't bleed. The passengers abduct the pilot and take him to Midlands Academy in New Mexico, a school that is really a front for an alien indoctrination center. The alien running the academy decides to let the pilot live - if he'll go on smuggling in "foreigners" to the academy. The money they offer him is a great temptation, especially since he has a wife half his age who is bored with him. Meanwhile, David Vincent learns of this academy, and uncovers the truth about it. Written by J. Spurlin
