S02E16. The Sands of Seth
Original Broadcast Date: 24 February 1990


Phelps approaches a blonde woman (Tiffany Lamb?) who works at a natural history museum where there is an animatronic dinosaur that looks like a baby tyrannosaurus rex.

Phelps: I guess we'll never know how these magnificent creatures disappeared.

Woman: They roamed the earth for more than 200 million years.

Phelps: Some scientists believe a giant meteor was the reason for their demise.

Woman: Maybe. Why don't you take a look over there if you want to get better informed.

Phelps goes into a room behind the dinosaur where the player is on a shelf.

Good afternoon, Jim. [This is the only time in the revamped series that the word "afternoon" is used.] In the last several months, a number of high officials in the Egyptian government have died horrible deaths by strangulation. The latest to die was Anwar Farthay. His behind-the-scenes power-brokering helped put Egypt on the road to a new level of negotiation with Israel and several radical Arab states. We believe that this man, Horus Selim, is somehow connected to the deaths. The director of the prestigious Museum of the Ancients, he has used his high-profile job to create antipathy toward government policies and believes Egypt should return to the greatness of its past -- a past he oversees at his museum. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to determine Selim's guilt and put a stop to the killings before they unbalance the U.S. peace effort presently underway to calm the volatile Middle East. As always, should you or any of your IM force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This disc will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.

Phelps closes the player and leaves. Smoke billows from the machine.
