  • Allie Clarke, shielded, with Mary Crawford and dr. Wakeman. The plan is to un-shield her, and then everybody wait for the UFO. Except, Mary is removed, from the now military project and from Wakeman. But she finds her way back, bringing the artifact. When Allie sees the artifact, it comes alive with shimmering letters. And then, after a long wait, finally lights in the sky. A downed craft. Mary goes inside. Allie is concentrated.
