David and Edgar intercept an alien data drop and recover the partially burned contents of a briefcase. A picture inside convinces them that Arnold Warren is an alien. Warren is seeking confirmation to a post supervising a space tracking project. He would be one of the few black men to hold such a high post. Standing between him and that goal is Jim Baxter, a Senate investigator who also happens to be black. Baxter's wife Celia wants black heroes for her son, so she's pressuring her husband to recommend Warren. Against that, David Vincent only has a wildly implausible story: that Warren is a man from outer space! Convincing Baxter to look further means appealing to his policeman's instincts.
