Voyager One: The Homecoming
PANDEMIC / ALIEN INVASION
The Voyager One space probe is caught in the nets of a trawler in the Bering Strait and simultaneously 13 billion miles out in space. Is this the ultimate paradox?
An object is caught in the nets of an Alaskan trawler fishing in the icy waters of the Bering Strait. NASA scientist Sitara Khan identifies it but cannot believe what she is seeing - it's Voyager One, which is currently approximately 13 billion miles away. The probe is taken back to the Jet Propulsion Lab at Caltech but, unknown to NASA, the spacecraft was a Trojan Horse carrying a killer virus which has been released into the atmosphere, bypassing NASA's Planetary Protection protocols.
A small band of survivors, immune to the disease, travels to Washington DC in the hope of finding some kind of governmental emergency plan in place and discover that the pandemic is no accident but a strategic attack on Earth preempting a full scale extra-terrestrial invasion.
