[b]~~~ Plot noooootes[/b]
The military has been hiding returned Atlanteans for generations in exchange for technology. It’s been long enough that ones in the civilian population don’t know what they are anymore. But the military has always kept track. Recently someone has betrayed the military and given information to the big bads. Everything from where bases were located, secrets, and the full list of Atlanteans. They want these Atlanteans because something in their blood can fuel some ancient lost weapons tech. The same tech that has destroyed two other planets. (venus and mars?)
