The continued study of the alien probe results in the release of a deadly virus which kills a Taelon researcher very quickly, and that death raises the possibility that humankind may be even more vulnerable to the airborne disease. But not everyone can agree on what to do about the crisis – Doors thinks it’s evidence of an accident during Taelon attempts to create agents for use in biological warfare. And a hate group decides that the virus is ideal for their purposes in wiping out an African-American community as their first strike in a new wave of racial terror.
