    Janeway: There's no doubt about it. The subspace readings are coming from him.

    At The Chronoworx Building, Henry Starling places a small computer chip down on a glass table.

    Starling: It's crap. The component density is too low, the voltage variance is too high and I don't even like the color.

    Starling: We've got less than 6 months before we introduce the HyperPro PC and with a chip like this driving it, we'll have to change the name to Edsel. I gave your company this contract because you're the best in the business, next to us of course. Go home, Jim. Lose some sleep over this. I want a full report middle of next week.

    The Phone beeps. Starling turns on speaker phone.

    Starling: What am I doing Dave?

    DAVE [OC]: And I know I'm not supposed to interrupt, but there's a woman calling on line three from the Griffith Observatory. Rain Robinson. She say's it's urgent.

    Starling gives Jim a Goodbye Wave. Jim leaves.

    Starling: Put her through.

    Phone beeps.

    Starling: Henry Starling.

    RAIN: Hi, I don't know if you remember me. I'm one of the astronomers at the SETI lab you're funding. We met at the Griffith restoration party.

    RAIN: Okay, well it was my understanding that you wanted to be notified immediately if I ever picked up a gamma emission that matched the frequency profile you gave me? Well I did, so I am.

    RAIN: Positive. I tracked the emission and guess what, the source is in orbit. It is right above us.

    RAIN: According to the raw data, about ninety minutes ago. I'm not picking up anything from the standard search parameters. Wow. That means no one else knows there's something up there. We've got to tell somebody about this. We've got to call NASA!

    Starling: Rain, that's a little premature, don't you think? This could be a close encounter but then again, could be a flock of geese.

    RAIN: Geese don't park themselves twenty thousand kilometers above North America. Let's send a message up there, see if there's any response.

    Starling: No, No. We don't know what we've found, until we do, I'm not going to risk embarrassing myself or your Observatory. Track the emission, get more data and keep me informed. In the meantime I'm going to put a bottle of champagne on ice. Do you think ET likes Chateau Coeur?
