Summary Edit

Morgan Sturgess is waiting in his office. In a couple of hours, a government agent will arrive to collect a contract giving the government his research — the Utopia project, genetic research designed to eliminate disease and genetic abnormalities.

To Morgan's surprise, a strange man enters his office. He gives his name as the Doctor, and he has a surprising knowledge of Morgan's top secret work. He proceeds to explain to Morgan why the work must be destroyed. Morgan refuses to accept the Doctor's reasoning. The Doctor tells Morgan that the government will not use the research only for the good intentions conceived by Morgan. Finally, the Doctor shows Morgan photographs showing how his research will be used. The Doctor leaves, having left behind a small bomb for Morgan to use.

Morgan uses the bomb to destroy his office, killing himself and destroying his research. No one else is killed in the blast, and the Doctor slips away from the scene as emergency vehicles arrive.
