9780061056871: Independence Day

Although the movie Independence Day captured the imaginations of millions, it also left many unanswered questions about the alien invasion. This second ID4 original novel gives fans the complete story of the courageous pilots who banded together in the Arabian desert to crush the alien City Destroyer. When Reg Thompson, an R.A.E Pilot and Instructor, survives an early attack against the apparently invulnerable City Destroyer, he retreats into the Saudi desert and hooks up with an ill-organized and fractious force of freedom fighters from the armies of several nations, including Khalid, a Saudi pilot; the beautiful Fadeela, Khalid's sister; and Faisal, the Saudi prince who is their leader. When Faisal's decision to ignore American help almost loses the war, Reg and Khalid must team up to beat the alien survivors and destroy the secret cache of biological weapons the invaders plan to unleash upon humanity. It's a hard-hitting, action-packed techno-adventure with furious rivalries, suicidal heroics, and a heart-stopping race against time to save our planet.

From the Back Cover:

FIRST CONTACT – AND COVER-UP!

The #1 blockbuster movie 'Independence Day' was only part of the story. After the alien invaders are downed and teams are sent out to find survivors, only some personal belongings of Dr. Brackish Okun, head scientist of Area 51, are found.

Okun's story is amazing, yet completely believable. It begins in the 1970s when this CalTech genius arrives at Area 51 to work with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the CIA on the study of a downed spaceship retrieved from Roswell, New Mexico.

But there is much more to the job than Okun realized. Soon, he begins to suspect that a massive government cover-up has successfully buried all evidence of alien visitation throughout the years – a cover-up in which Okun is now an unwilling participant. His perseverance leads him to the truth behind the studies at Area 51, the government's fear of an alien invasion, and a mysterious encounter in the Mexican desert at a place known as 'La Manta de Silencia': The Silent Zone.
