"Connections - Episode 14 of The Visitor" is an illustrated fan fiction
that extends The Visitor story. Written with rapidly shifting scenes to mirror the TV show,
"Connections" also goes back in time, detailing Adam MacArthur's experiences in
the spacecraft and on the Colony, immediately following his abduction.
Given a second chance after his capture by angry abductees from the Colony, the Visitor
returns to earth to take up his mission once more. He remains intent upon changing the
destiny of mankind, but the rules and the players have changed. Adam's abductors now closely
follow his progress. He has been linked to their bigger plan for averting the extinction of
humanity. Adam struggles with the dictates of his off-world advocates. He will not abandon
his promise to find Jason, the son he had been forced to leave behind in 1947. Neither will
MacArthur relinquish his conviction that the fate of all humans, both earthbound humans and
Colony-dwelling abductees, should be one and the same.
Colonel Vise, the crafty head of the National Security Agency, wrestles with a mysterious
ailment of mind and body. Even as he recovers from being accidentally shot by his own men, he
obsesses about stopping Adam MacArthur. Adopting a more subtle approach, Col. Vise enlists
the services of two recently fired FBI agents, Nicholas LaRue and Craig Van Patten. With an
uneasy alliance at best, these former adversaries combine forces to locate and apprehend Vise's
"silent runner", Adam MacArthur.
The Visitor's next contact is a Navy dolphin trainer, David West. In calculating the checks
and balances that steer the direction of future events, West emerges as one of the key people
who can make a difference. Changing the future, though, is a treacherous pursuit requiring Adam
to immerse himself in the daily life of the world that he left over 50 years before. Unexpected
entanglements arise when Adam rescues a lost boy with the uncanny ability to "talk"
to dolphins. Following one of the truisms of The Visitor universe that "all life is
connected", the paths of the lost boy, the ambivalent Navy dolphin trainer, and the
mismatched law enforcement team all intersect in and around Florida's Gulf Coast waters.
Adam MacArthur continues his battle to save humanity from destruction.
