Detective Chizum, a San Francisco Police officer, receives a call about a missing woman from a concerned neighbor. Upon investigation, he finds that the missing woman is none other than marine biologist Gillian Taylor. He investigates her boss, who tells her there was an altercation which caused her to run off, and from there the search is on.

Chizum's investigation continues, only to find that she is connected with a group of strange people who kidnap military prisoners from hospitals and fly around in an invisible ship... and according to a waiter at a pizza restaurant, they are from the future.
