Storyline

Everybody in the Governor's mansion, except Benson, has come down with the flu when Benson receives a letter from the Army ordering him to report to the nearby base. While there, he learns that while he was in the Army a top-secret experiment in germ warfare was conducted on servicemen returning from Korea, who were exposed to possibly dangerous bacteria and never told what had been done, and Benson is one of those subjects. Now he has to find out whether or not he's sick and everyone else is more worried than him. Written by Tony Scheinman
