INVADERS, THE: THE MUTATION (TV)

Summary

One in this series of science fiction programs about architect David Vincent's attempts to stop space aliens from taking over the world. In this episode, Vincent meets a newspaper man named Evans in a small southwestern border town where a sighting has been rumored to have taken place. Evans says he knows a woman who has seen the aliens and that he will take Vincent to meet her if he gives him the exclusive rights to his story. At a strip club Evans introduces him to Vikki, a dancer who reluctantly agrees to take Vincent to the remote site in the desert where she spotted an alien ship after she got lost while out driving. Vincent is attracted to Vikki, but she coldly thwarts his attempts at conversation during their two-hour drive together. Upon reaching their destination a distraught Vikki suddenly reveals the truth about herself in order to save Vincent's life -- but it may already be too late. Includes some commercials and a public service announcement.
