Manchek pulls a key out of his pocket, and walks toward a door marked “EMERGENCY ONLY.”
He enters a small room and turns on the overhead light.
Looking at the key’s fob, a tag says “In case of FIRE, Notify Division 21 Emergency Only.”
Manchek inserts the key in a wall phone and picks up the receiver. He dials eight numbers on the rotary phone.
Electronic noises are heard, and then a voice comes on the speaker.
“This is a recording,” says the voice. “State your name and your message, and hang up.”
“Major Arthur Manchek, Scoop Mission Control A-12,” says Manchek. “I recommend calling a Wildfire Alert. We have evidence here on film of unnatural death caused by Scoop Seven returning to Earth. Time check: zero one four seven, inclusive.”
He looks at the receiver. More machine noises are heard from the phone. He hangs up the phone.
A teletype machine begins printing on screen:
WILDFIRE ALERT HAS BEEN CALLED
POTENTIAL DIRECTIVE 7-12
