Episode Summary

EDIT
In Part Two, Ballard follows up on a lead from Minns' apartment: a list of names. He finds that they're all children -- special children. Minerva Gordon is blind, Danny Masters is a deaf mute, others are handicapped in various ways. He makes preparations to protect the kids from Minns, to no avail. He then sets up a series of roadblocks on the road to Wichita, where a spaceship is being built. Ballard and Minns have a confrontation at the warehouse. At first, Minns and the others are in the dark about what will happen to the children. Then the alien intelligence reveals the final explanation to Minns and he takes Ballard inside the ship. He finds that the damaged children are whole again, and well. Crutches and leg braces lay on the deck, unneeded. Minerva can see, and Danny can hear and speak. Minns tells Ballard that the atmosphere in the ship duplicates that of the planet they'll be travelling to. And that, if taken off the ship, the children will immediately revert. He says that they will be going to a planet that had been wiped out by a catastrophe, and they would be colonizing the planet. All four of the soldiers would accompany the children. Now that the doubts about their mission have been erased, they all agree readily.moreless
