Storyline

When Shirley's television reception is disrupted during an interview with her father, she compares notes with Alicia and Bo and discovers both their households had similar interference. When Bart declines any information, Shirley presses him and learns that the static was caused when Bart tried to replicate a communication with extraterrestrial beings that he had overheard at the SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) outpost from which he had been inexplicably fired. Shirley and Bo agree to help Bart get to the bottom of the mystery. Written by David Bassler
