Airwolf is somebody else's, probably Universal's or Bellisarius', and I freely admit that whoever's it is, I'm borrowing their show and they retain all rights, etc.

This is the seventeenth story that I'm writing to cover the period between the end of the 3rd season and the beginning of the 4th. If you have read the other sixteen stories (Single Parent Hawke, The Jade Wolf, The Truth About Caitlin, Old Friends New Enemies, Hawke's Wolf, Father Figures, Personal Business, Hidden Truths, Homecomings, The Ex Factor, A Question of Loyalty, You Are Cordially Invited, The Odd Couple, Spirit of the Wolf, Ghosts and A High Price to Pay), you can skip straight to the story in the next chapter…or read this brief recap of the story so far:

When Stringfellow Hawke reunites Le, the boy he incorrectly believed to be his nephew, with the boy's newly found mother, Ana it is the start of a hectic time for the Airwolf team as a series of missions test their ingenuity, abilities and even the strength of their relationships…

An attempt to take Airwolf by a power hungry General is thwarted along with an attempt to revenge by the General's crazed sister. But the event does bring Dominic Santini's niece, Jo, back into his life and new information on Hawke's missing brother, Saint John. It provides Hawke with new hope of finding his brother although he begins to worry that his brother may blame him for leaving him in the jungle.

The deputy director of the FIRM, Michael Coldsmith-Briggs III, continues to try and find Saint John – now believed to be working for an intelligence agency called the Company, the same agency the FIRM is being amalgamated with by order of Congress. Michael knows the Company will not honour the deal he has made with Hawke and the spy confesses to Hawke that the FIRM is building a third Airwolf. Hawke agrees to work on the new project when Michael reaffirms his own commitment to their deal.

The project starts building two Airwolf machines; one which will ultimately replace the original as the next generation of her type but another which the team intend to pass off to the Company as the original when the take-over happens as the original Airwolf is showing signs of developing artificial intelligence. The whole idea of the merger causes Zeus, the director of the FIRM, to make an attempt to take back Airwolf that leaves Michael's former senior aide, Marella badly injured. The incident does prompt Michael to moving their relationship forward onto a more personal footing though…

In amongst the concerns about Airwolf and the Company, Dom is taken hostage by an old enemy – one that he and Hawke's father faced years before. Although Dom is rescued by Hawke and Caitlin, the incident reveals to Dom much more about the fate of Hawke's parents…could they be alive? Dom decides not to reveal his theory to Hawke who has found happiness by marrying his close friend and the third member of the Airwolf team, Caitlin O'Shaunessy even confiding to Dom that he and Caitlin have decided to start their family even as they settle into married life…

And now the next instalment: Prime Suspect
