FIVE F SIXTEENS APPROACH and pull up at the last second.
Air Force One TOUCHES DOWN and DECELERATES along the vacant runway.
It comes to a stop.
INT. AIR FORCE BASE FOR STRATEGIC OPERATIONS - DAY
Two SECRET SERVICE AGENTS escort the President. The PILOT, CO-PILOT, and SIX CREW
follow a short distance behind.
A black limousine waits at the Presidential hangar. COLONEL MILBORN stands at attention
and salutes the President.
Where is the General, Colonel?
In his office, Mr. President. I am
to escort you there now, Sir.
The men enter the limousine.
INT. GENERALíS OFFICE - DAY
General Billings sits behind his desk and reads strategic military papers
as his office door opens.
The Colonel, The President, and the two Secret Service Agents enter.
General Billings continues to look at the papers.
Close the door Colonel. Have a seat,
Mr. President. I'll be with you in a
The President calmly approaches General Billings and turns over the General's
coffee mug and pours the liquid in the middle of the papers.
General Billings pushes the chair away from the desk in astonishment.
What the hell was that for, Sir?
General, you must realize from this moment
on - there is nothing on your desk as
important as your commanding officer standing
in front of you! You will NOT keep me waiting
on a tarmac with some low ranked taxi service
to chauffeur me to your personal underground
castle! You WILL be present to greet my arrival,
UPON my arrival. Are we clear General?
Yes Sir, Mr. President.
Good! Now do you have some palatable reasons why
I shouldn't shut this rat hole down and build
something here that I can account for?
Yes Sir. Please, sit down.
Billings, where has the Special Funding gone?
Mr. President! You force me to divulge more than
I really want to, so here it is. I hope you will
be able to cope with it. In July of 1971, an alien
spacecraft landed in the Nevada desert 15 miles
from this Base. We tracked it for an hour on radar
and scrambled a squadron. It landed with no resistance,
but the landing was not an easy one and the vehicle
sustained major damage.
Sounds to me like a re-run from the old Roswell
incident back in the forties.
You may scoff at the premise of flying saucers,
Sir. The Roswell incident was real. It was
covered up as well as it could be and no one was
hurt. At least no one from Earth!
You act as if flying saucers DID land in New Mexico!
Mr. President, something landed there alright. But
something more substantial landed here - in Nevada.
Extraterrestrials. They came from some other planet
not of our solar system. We don't know the exact location,
only a general idea. It would take us five and half
billion years to reach their planet.
General you must be joking. Aliens?
I assure you this is no joking matter!
How can that be?
They got here in the equivalent of 10 days
from the time they left their planet.
Nothing can go that fast! It is impossible.
Tell that to the Angelics!
