Act Two Scene Three:
Narrator: Mick rushes right into the control room at the radio station.
The two DJs, Rick and Dwight are still on the air.
Mick: You guys want to see what those old guys at the general store were all talking about?
Rick: Listeners, we will be right back after an important message from our sponsors.
Narrator: As Rick and Dwight take off their headphones, Mick lays his bag of strange metal on the announcer’s desk.
Rick: What in the bag, Mick?
Mick: It may be from a flying saucer that crashed on my ranch last night.
Dwight: Rick! This is the scoop of the century!
Rick: I know and we’ll be the broadcasters who first broke the story.
Dwight: Rick, we’ll be invited on the Larry King show!
Rick: Easy! Dwight! Calm down.
Rick: Welcome back, loyal listeners. We’ve got a very special guest on today’s show, rancher Mick Russell.
Dwight: That’s right listeners. Mick has an amazing story to tell us. Mick, tell us what you found on your ranch last night.
Mick: Well, I think one of them flying saucers they been talking about on the news crashed on my ranch last night.
Narrator: Mick dumps the bag with the metal pieces on Rick and Dwight’s desk.
Narrator: Just as Mick starts telling his story General Kane turns up the radio in his army jeep.
General Kane: What’s that rancher talking about? Private, get this vehicle to the radio station on the double! We got to shut this cowboy up before he starts a national panic.
Private Enns: Don’t worry sir. I’ll have us there in a flash.
Act II Scene Four:
Narrator: While Rick and Dwight are doing their interview with Mick Russell, General Kane smashes the glass window in the control room. Private Enns kicks in the door.
Rick: What’s the meaning of this?! We’re on the air!
Narrator: Ignoring the two radio broadcasters, General Kane and Private Enns grab Mick by the arms and hustle him out of the radio station. They throw Mick in the back of the army jeep.
Rick: I would just like to let the people of Roswell, New Mexico know that Mick Russell has just been hauled out of our control room by two military officers. I thought that we had freedom of speech in this country.
Dwight: Yes, loyal listeners, this is indeed a sad day for the American people.
Narrator: Private Enns locked the door of the army jeep. Mick is sitting in the pitch black dark near the back of the jeep. Mick can’t see anyone but he hears labored breathing and the moaning as if someone is in terrible pain. Mick is trembling and is drenched in sweat.
Mick: Who is in here? Man, it smells awful in here and I feel like I’m going to puke.
Act Two Scene Five:
Narrator: After a long bumpy ride the Army jeep stops in front of the Roswell Hospital. Private Enns unlocks the doors of the jeep and helps Mick out of the back.
Mick: What you guys doing to me?
General Kane: Shut up Russell. Private Enns, I’ll take the surviving alien into the hospital. You bring Russell in. We’ll get some of the orderlies to carry in the bodies of the dead aliens.
Narrator: Mick turns around and sees the living alien hooked up to an oxygen tank.
Mick: What the heck is that?! Am I in some kind of Stephen King novel?
Narrator: General Kane pushes through the hospital doors while bringing the surviving alien inside. Pvt. Enns is right behind him with Mick in handcuffs.
General Kane: Nurse! Give Mr. Russell, here a shot of grade A horse tranquilizer. He’s having a real bad day and I want him to take a nap. And call some orderlies for me. I need them to unload some bodies from our army truck.
Nurse Carrie: Right away, General!
Narrator Nurse Carrie calls for some orderlies over the intercom. As the orderlies arrive Nurse Carrie gives them their instructions. She tells Mick to lower his trousers and gives him a shot in the backside.
In a few seconds Mick slumped to the floor. Two orderlies lift Mick onto a stretcher.
General Kane: Orderlies, stick this man in a storage room. After I take care of business here I’m taking him back to the Air Force Base for an interrogation.
Narrator: While all the commotion is going on in the reception room, Dr. Zorba passes by and sees the injured alien slumped in a chair taking deep breaths from his oxygen mask.
Dr. Zorba: Nurse, bring this man into the operating room
immediately. I’ll have to work fast to save his life.
Narrator: Nurse Carrie and an orderly help put the alien on a table in the operating room.
Dr. Zorba: This is bizarre. I can hear this creature’s voice in my head, but he’s not speaking.
Nurse Carrie: What’s he telling you doctor?
Dr. Zorba: The creature says that he is very frightened and that he doesn’t want to die. He’s telling me the exact medicine he needs to restore him to health. He says that his name is Commander Zig and that he comes from a planet millions of light-years from our solar system.
Nurse Carrie: He’s trying to communicate with me too. He says that the last thing he remembers is colliding with another spacecraft. He says that he means us no harm.
Narrator: General Kane rushes into the operating room.
Commander Zig (communicating telepathically) Doctor, this man frightens me.
General Kane: Well, what’s the verdict Doc? Can you save this thing or not?
Dr. Zorba: Well, first of all, General he’s not a thing. He’s a highly evolved intelligent being from another universe. He says he means us no harm. In fact, he is very afraid of you.
