The first alien abduction story was also the weirdest

You might not think that Syfy's Warehouse 13 was influenced by alien abductions in particular — but Warehouse 13 writer Deric Hughes was obsessed with stories about UFOs and abductions, growing up. We caught up with Hughes and he told us how his UFOlogy obsession influences his writing.


And he tells us about the first, weirdest abduction story of all time. Plus, find out how Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles used real-life UFO footage to spice up its Skynet storylines. The truth is right here!
