Synopsis:
The Challengers are called to Harvest, Wyoming to investigate a string of mysterious disappearances dating back to the 19th century. The locals are hostile, and the Challengers end up in a brawl. A dour man named Saxon contends the unknown should stay unknown. (Saxon plagues the team as an anti-Challenger.) Finally Brenda and Kenn are chained down on a playground for "the harvest": human sacrifices to some nameless periodic power. Locals bicker and the minister is shot. Kenn picks the chain locks and shoves Marlon free - as the "harvest" hits. A force - gravity blip? - whisks locals straight up into space. The chained Challs are ironically spared. The Challengers decide knowing the truth is better than living in ignorance - isn't it?

Indexer Notes

This is the first appearance of the new Challengers: Clay Brody, Marlon Corbet, Brenda Ruskin, Kenn Kawa. They refer to earlier unrecorded adventures. This team pays homage to THE X-FILES TV show.
