Published on

Is the best way to describe the Nightstalkers. The Special Operations unit that deals with the unnatural. Or what scientists have come up with and lost control of.

The Nightstalkers: The Unit Meets Warehouse 13

  1. 1. NIGHTSTALKERS The Unit meets Warehouse 13
  2. 2. Area 51 Area 51 is in the middle of nowhere on the way to nowhere To the west: The Nevada Test Site, where 739 nuclear weapons were detonated To the north: Nellis Air Force Base bombing range At Groom Lake is the longest runway in the world And underneath Area 51 is “The Can” which can detect Rifts in our universe
  3. 3. Based at The Ranch, just outside of Area 51, the Nightstalkers are the elite Special Operations unit that takes care of the things that go bump in the night. They ‘correct’ the mistakes of scientists. They are our last defense against self- annihilation. They’re also a little bit crazy, a little bit mad, and a long way outside the bell curve.
  4. 4. The Ranch Is on “private” land across Extraterrestrial Highway from Area 51. Why? No one looks that way. Unlike the Official Signs at Area 51, the warning signs for the Ranch are spray-painted on plywood and read: NO TRESPASSING: WE WILL SHOOT YOUR ASS
  5. 5. Why We Are Here“We are here because the best of intentions can go horribly awry and the worst of intentions can achieve exactly what it sets out to do. It is often the noblest scientific inquiry that can produce the end of us all. We are here because we are the last line of defense when the desire to do right turns into a wrong. We are here because mankind advances through trial and error. Because nothing man does is ever perfect. And we are ultimately here because there are things out there, beyond mankind’s current knowledge level, that man must be guarded against until man can understand those things. We must remember this.”
  6. 6. Who Are The Nightstalkers? Every new team member goes through an in- briefing by the enigmatic Ms. Jones (some think she’s just a hologram) who also hand picks each of them. Then every team member gets to submit a single name for the new member. The team then votes on the names, and thus the member is christened with the name he/she will forever have as a team member. His or her past is gone as if it never existed.
  7. 7. Who Are The Nightstalkers? Team Leader Who Cares for Her Team Perhaps More Than The Mission: Moms Team Sergeant and Longest (Surviving) Team Member: Nada Medic and Team Scientist: Doc Engineer & Demo Man and Harboring One or Two Secrets: Mac Communications Man Who Cheated His Way Through Ranger School: Kirk Pilot & Possessor of Much Useless Knowledge: Eagle Weapons Man Named after Warren Zevon’s Headless Thompson Gunner: Roland
  8. 8. “I am become death.” On the 16th of June, 1945, the first atomic bomb was detonated. Oppenheimer, one of the developers of the bomb quoted a Hindu saying: “I am become death, the shatterer of worlds.” And to prevent that death, and more, the Nightstalkers were formed.
  9. 9. Why Were They Formed? In 1948, scientists at Area 51, using the ‘demon core’ from Los Alamos, opened the first Rift. And the first Fireflies came through. “We’re the Nightstalkers. We kill Fireflies, and Doc there, the Scientist, he shuts the Rift. That’s it. Moms and Nada told you how we kill the Fireflies. If it’s inside something living, I end up flaming it until there’s nothing but ash. Non-organic stuff, Mac and I and the rest of the team blast and flame until there’s nothing left. Then this little gold thing floats up out of whatever it was in and—poof—no more Firefly.”
  10. 10. Rifts & Fireflies No one knows what they are. Except that Fireflies come through Rifts. And in the first book, Area 51 Nightstalkers, a Rift opens. One that is different than the 27 previous Rifts. And whoever is on the other side has a plan.
  11. 11. Getting Zevoned When a Rift opens and the Nightstalkers are alerted they get Zevoned: “Send lawyers, guns and money!” And the Nightstalkers. They arrive on the Snake, a jet powered, tilt wing, experimental aircraft. They always parachute in a recon element via HALO (high altitude low opening) or HAHO (high altitude high opening).
  12. 12. The Three C’s Nightstalkers missions have three priorities • Containment • Concealment • Control
  13. 13. Nightstalkers Series When I was flying around with my team in black helicopters, we wondered who the other guys flying around in them were? Nightstalkers are the elite Special Ops unit that take care of the things that go bump in the night; and worse. They correct the mistakes of scientists. They’re also a little bit crazy and a long way outside the bell curve, and not necessarily on the good end. And in Time Patrol, they transition from being Nightstalkers to becoming the Time Patrol.
