    Muckraking TV journalist Donald Rivers, host of 'The Whole Truth,' has the show of a lifetime: rock solid proof that the government and private defense contractors have been engaging in secret genetic cloning. But powerful forces are working to stop him, forces that will stop at nothing to keep their secrets. He goes on-air live, in a locked studio, accompanied only by a skeleton crew and Dr. Avery Strong, River's eyewitness to the history of deception and dark science. As he presents his evidence -- all gleaned from earlier episodes of The Outer Limits -- the powerful begin to interfere. First, they try to shut down his transmitter. Then, the network's parent company disavows the show. When thugs with guns knock down the studio door, Rivers continues the show on the fly, transmitting live from the back of a broadcast news van. But a van can only drive for so long. When it stops, will the truth, even The Whole Truth, be enough to protect Rivers, Strong and the crew?moreless

    Devon Taylor, a 20 year-old physics whiz, has heard a lot of strange sounds coming from space as part of his job assisting Dr. Evan Swift at the radio observatory -- but something tells him this signal, coming from the direction of Certus, is special. Devon's suspicions are confirmed when he takes a tape of the signal home and his 17 year-old sister, Joyce, and her boyfriend Vic react as if they have heard the most beautiful music in the world. But the sound, which seems comprehensible only to teenagers, has a disturbing side-effect; Joyce and Vic's skin begins physically changing, as does the skin of all the other teenagers they expose to the sound. Worse, when Devon's father, Dr. Emory Taylor, orders the "music" taken away, the teenagers appear to go through a painful and possibly deadly withdrawal. Faced with the spread of this potentially deadly audio virus, the government imposes martial law as Devon and his father try to figure out why the sound has the effect it does. Is this the first act of war by an alien civilization or are the children suffering only because the adults are deaf to this precious gift of special music?moreless

    Ben Conklin has been a loner ever since his parents died when he was twelve years old. This is one reason why General James Eiger selected him to spend a year buried in a bunker 11,000 feet below the Artic tundra, manning the controls of a doomsday device set up by world leaders after the Hubble space telescope spotted 11 spaceships heading towards Earth. The device is designed as a last-line deterrent against alien invasion and Conklin's job, shared with four other loners in four other bunkers, is to hit a dead man's switch on the bunkers control panel that prevents the doomsday device from going off and destroying aliens and mankind alike. At first, the job is easy, but as the aliens draw closer to Earth, and as Conklin grows closer to his subterranean colleagues, he begins to doubt the reliability of the doomsday machine. News from General Eiger becomes scarce, then Conklin's fellow guardians begin to fall victim to assorted mishaps. Conklin realizes that he carries the weight of the world - and the fate of mankind in the palm of his hand.moreless
