Liam and his resistance followers struggle to find the cure before Zo'or's plan turns fruitful and leads to a genocide, with a gigantic proportional of death counts. However, Liam catches the virus' flu and more as his suppressed alien nature surfaces leaving him either as another statistic or humanity's savior.
