General Harding has been receiving anonymous threats from Roswell, New Mexico about his role in the cover-up about the purported UFO incident in 1947 which the Air Force was able to quash at the time. As such, Harding decides to return to Roswell to quash the threat for good, and against General Valentine's advice in the action making his visit having some official status, he decides to bring the Blue Book team to provide any support. Harding believes he knows the source of the threat, which could cause some problems if he is wrong. Regardless, he may find it a different matter this time around in the locals now having that experience in 1947 with him in deciding what to do. With what happened in Washington, Allen has armed himself with more information to discover what truly occurred in 1947 in Roswell, he now able to use Mimi as a research assistant. While Quinn is a little more open to the possibilities from what he himself experienced in Washington, he may still look to support ... Written by Huggo
