  • "My mother always talked to me a lot about the sky..."

    In the midst of an air battle during World War II over the skies of Germany, B-17 pilot Captain Russell Keys and his entire crew see some blue lights in the sky and are saved from death. Russell loses all memory of the incident and goes on with his life, retiring a highly-decorated war hero, settling down with his childhood sweetheart Kate and having a son, Jesse. Eventually, Russell is having dreams about being tortured by German doctors and, desperate for answers, tracks down the sole surviving member of his bomber crew (all the others having died under mysterious circumstances), Lieutenant Lou Johnson. Johnson, in his final moments, makes him realize the "German doctors" experimenting on them and subsequently killed by the resisting Russell were aliens using their abilities to disguise themselves. Not wanting to bring the aliens down upon his family, he abandons them and flees for his life. Meanwhile, in Roswell, New Mexico, Captain Owen Crawford discovers a crashed saucer, which is soon retrieved and becomes the initial subject of a new "Project", intent on discovering the alien visitors' purpose on Earth. After Owen is frozen out of the investigation, he is given a mysterious alien artifact, seduces and marries his superior's daughter Anne, and uses both to blackmail the Project's leader (Anne's father), Colonel Thomas Campbell. He gets a promotion to Major and becomes leader of the Project. Owen also attempts to locate the fifth member (and only survivor) of the spaceship crew. This alien, in human disguise and calling himself "John", enjoys a relationship with the lonely Sally Clarke, who sheltered him (despite learning of his true nature later on) and ended up pregnant by him.
