When a group of Chinese clandestine is found dead at the seacoast, the fringe division is summoned to investigate. They find a huge worm and one a Chinese woman alive that explains that the group received pills for seasickness, but she had not swallowed hers. Dr. Bishop investigates the worm and concludes it has medicinal purpose. Therefore, the Triad gang is using the illegal immigrants to breed the parasitic worms and produce a drug for treatment of millionaires.
