Summary: This is also a crossover with Counterstrike and Manimal and has fantasy elements. The aliens are trying to create a doomsday weapon. Stone is nearly taken over and finds out some startling facts about his past; and Ironhorse and Norton get a surprise.


  • Part I: New Moon Rising – Alexander Addington sends ex-Navy SEAL Hector Stone to San Francisco to find out why three top researchers at his GenoPharm Company have resigned.
