The Extraterrestrial

Vulnerability Experiment...

has one central goal:

to discover a means

to defend ourselves...

against the alien species

should they ever return to Earth.

Now, as you know, gentlemen,

Eve was re-created

from a frozen lab embryo.

She's a genetic duplicate

of the original Sil.

Now, we have deliberately

shielded Eve...

from any direct contact

with the male gender...

which is why, gentlemen,

you're inside there.




Laura! Please!

Okay, that's enough.

Bring her up.

Bingo, Dr. Baker!

It worked!

Take a look at those

beautiful welts.

Just beautiful.

What happened, Dr. Baker?

Our problem in a nutshell:

A toxic agent works once...

but then it becomes useless

once the alien's biology adapts.
