DISCLAIMER: Some of the dialogue used was taken from the episodes and I am not claiming credit for having written it but used it simply to set up the tone of a scene or show parallels between lives and realities.



AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is an account of the events that surround the arrival of the aliens on Earth, the crash and subsequent capture of the shape shifters and the pods by the government, with a small mention of some of the events revealed in the episode Summer of '47.




NAGGING QUESTIONS:
1. What was the story of Grandpa Dupree?
2. What was the cause of the crash?
3. What exactly happened during the government's capture of the shapeshifters?
4. How did the pods get to New York?
5. Who buried the orb?
