They tell that they are siblings, Sara and Seth, and they need to travel to a location outside Las Vegas in the middle of nowhere. Meanwhile the government finds a spacecraft that crashed nearby Las Vegas and is chasing the two aliens; after the investigation of the men of Major Henry Burke, they discover that the two siblings are the aliens.

Object of unknown origin

is at 90k and descending fast.

Give me a visual track now!

Zero match

with anything on our database.

It's manuevering!

We're registering impact!

Get me Henry Burke, now!

Hey, you think this is it?

This is the real deal.

You'll learn.

Squad and equipment

locked and loaded.

I've rerouted

local law and media.

Impact was 8 minutes ago,

how long until we land?

Imperial droid, drive your geonisian

star fighters to planet... Hollywood.

Die! Die!


Scan the perimeter, no one

gets in and nothing gets out.

Planet Hollywood, please.

They've got everything here!

This place is truly like

being on another planet.

With all this to see every night.

You must never get bored.

Welcome to the...

nut job convention.

I understand your reaction, they

certainly aren't helping our cause.

Our cause?

Educating the public on the legitimate

possibility of life on other planets.

As a matter of fact, I'm giving a lecture

on Astro-physical anamoly detection...

at the...

nut job convention.

Feel free to stop by. Close minded

skeptics are always welcome.

Keep the change.


Dr. Alex Friedman.

A classic.

Hey come on!

Knock it off, will ya?

I need to sleep!

Yeah, me too.

I'm Casey Smith and we're back

with a breaking news alert.

An accident research like.

And I'm Church Agee, we're gonna take

you to our reporter live on the scene.

Officials are calling it the worst

chlorine spill in state history.

A five mile security perimeter

has been established.

Highway Patrol Officers have been rerouting

traffic since the early morning hours.

And we're now being told, this section

of Route 95, will be closed indefinitely.

This is Natalie Gann, reporting.

The cast we pulled outta the trench

indicate a distinct pattern...

alternating between the depth

of the impressions, here and here.

Suggesting not one, but two seperate

E.V.E's that were moving fast.


Possibly humanoid form.

Review every data gathering entity within

a 15 mile radius starting upon impact.

Look out for any anomalies.

Hey you guys gotta

move this thing, I gotta go.


Don't return phone calls anymore?

Mr. Wolf thinks you're being rude.

Tell Wolf that when I said

it was the last time, I meant it.

Mr. Wolf decides

when its the last time.

Not you Jack.

He likes you Jackie.

He hates to see you wasting

your god given driving talent...

giving fat tourists cab rides

up and down the strip.

But we're kinda late for that.

It's what I'm late for.

You got a death wish?

I drive a cab in Vegas.

You're dead, Jack!


What're you doing?

Are you insane?

Now move this thing outta the taxi

zone before I give you a ticket!

See you soon, Jackie.

W... Where'd you come from?


Yeah, I figured that part out

on my own.

- How'd you get in the car?

- Through that portal.

I'm Seth, this is my sister Sara.

We require transportation

services immediately.


- Really?

- Well I require...

- Currency transaction.

- Will this amount suffice?

What did you two,

rob a bank?

Is this acceptable, Jack Bruno?

How'd you know my name?

If we have a deal for your services,

we must move forward rapidly.

It's urgent we get to our

destination without delay.

Alright, alright I'm going.

Where to?

I need an address!

We must travel in that direction.

Well I'm gonna need something more

specific than just... that direction.

We must locate latitude 40.54

cross intersecting longitude...

We're just gonna stick with

that direction.

We tracked the two sets of E.V.E's

foot prints on and off for 7.3 miles.
