When a satellite crashes from orbit, and animals start dying from a strange organism attached to it, MacGyver must investigate. He finds out it was an impulsive scientist from the Phoenix Foundation,and she planted the organism on the satellite to test it. The organism makes the aging process of any living thing that touches it speed up, and she wants to use it to speed up the growing process of food. But it's too risky.

Phoenix Foundation and the Army order her to destroy the remaining samples of it, and she agrees. But will she really destroy something that took her years of research to create?
