This being, Argo, impresses upon them that they have each been given a special gift and that they should not squander the same way his people did. He also cautions them that their planet Earth is facing an impending danger that he could not be specific about. They will have to find each other join and use their powers to identify and combat the darkening storm that is threatening the very existence of their civilization.
