A fellow Newcomer cop takes a bullet for George at a stakeout, and is rushed to L.A.’s new Newcomer-only hospital. Despite focusing on Tenctonese medicine, the hospital has a human administrator, an old friend of Sikes’, and he promises Sikes and George that their colleague is suffering a superficial wound to his arm. Later, as the recovering police officer is walking around the hospital, he spots something completely at odds with the hospital’s mission: a female human patient is being treated there. The next day, the officer dies, supposedly of a fatal reaction to anesthetics. Sikes and George talk to the hospital staff, including Sikes’ neighbor Cathy, discovering that there have been a number of deaths recently. At a party held by Sikes’ friend, Sikes is offered the post of chief of security at the hospital, but he also has a little too much to drink and passes out. When Sikes wakes up in the morning, he has an odd scar. Cathy, who has discovered one common factor – a missing gland – among all of the dead Newcomers, discovers that Sikes has been injected with a Newcomer hormone from that gland…and that yet another patient died at the hospital while Sikes was at the party. Tenctonese patients are dying to make humans younger – and both Sikes’ friend and some of the Tenctonese doctors are in on the scheme.
