Well I've done searching myself <g>.  Some of this sounds too

I started with: http://www.geeksquad.com/agents/66bio.htm
(Dossier on Robert Stephens)

Over a three year period, he rose to become head engineer of the
lab while earning scholarships from the U.S. Navy and the FAA
for research into virtual reality and construction of a
computer-based flight and driving simulator. It was also during
this time he started a computer consulting business. In April
1994, after three years at the University, he formed Geek Squad,
Inc. with $200. Now four years old, The Geek Squad is a 24-hour
on-site rapid-response computer task force with eighteen Special

adaptability. They operate successfully in hostile environments.
When you're in trouble, these are the people you need on your

I checked out: http://www.artic.edu/saic/ats/courses.html which
are numerous courses in the Arts & Technology field Mr. Stephens
and others may have taken (including holography and 3-D

I think these 'Geeks' have been toying with the ufological
community.  Stand at attention guys. What do you think? Perhaps
they've been 'contracted' by NASA and the Navy SEALS on a
computer-consulting basis.  Perhaps that's why no one wants to
