Together with his neighbor Candy (Brooke Markham, Cassandra French's Finishing School), Mayo sets off on an adventurous chase through his new neighborhood in search of a like-minded friend.

Rounding out their trio is Ira (Griffin Kunitz, Days of our Lives), who has a garage full of inventions and gadgets they can use on their adventures. Together, the three of them try to prove the existence of aliens and can't help but become personally involved with the cases of people who call into their show.
