Black Rock Observatory receives a chilling radio transmission from what student Ronald Phillips believes is an alien message from a very distant galaxy. It is New Year’s Eve, 2024, and Ronald expected a quiet night of work as the telescope searched for extraterrestrial life. When scientists become aware of the recording, they are excited and anxious to check it out and share it with the world. A recording is uploaded and the public listens and is excited and anxious. The story quickly shifts to a scary problem of people getting sick and acting strangely. As two doctors, Kevin Dyar and Jame Ketterly, study and investigate this strange new sickness, they realize that it might be the result of the alien recording. It becomes obvious that the disease is somehow linked to the Observatory and the alien message. After weeks of study and the strange ailments continuing, it becomes a do or die situation to find an answer.
