Alien NationJust as George is remarking on the superficiality of human physical relationships, Sikes pulls over to help a Tenctonese prostitute being threatened by an equally Tenctonese pimp. George gives her bus fare to go home to her family, and charges Sikes with making sure she makes it to her bus. At first Sikes is furious, but George explains that the girl is suffering from a kind of Newcomer post-traumatic stress disorder that convinces its sufferers that they are still slaves. Rather than getting on a bus, she wanders back to Sikes’ apartment, where he puts her up for another night – and when he comes home from work, she’s been murdered. George and Sikes set out to find the killer, and the trail leads them to a talent agency whose owner, a Newcomer woman, seems to find it all too easy to enslave her people again. But closer to home, George learns of a troubling secret his son has been keeping as well.
