| colspan="2" | The American Wendelle Stevens is one of the principal investigators of the 'Billy' Meier case. Stevens first heard of the case in September 1976. In October 1977, after having followed the case by mail for about one year Stevens went to Switzerland, to "look Meier and the witnesses in the eye and see the evidence".

| The following years he spent much time and money investigating the case and he returned at least five times to Switzerland. On several of these trips he was accompanied by his friends and fellow investigators Lee and Brit Elders and Tom Welch. Among other things, they studied many of the sites were Meier shot his photos and movie films, they did on site experiments with UFO models and interviewed many of the local witnesses in Switzerland. ''UFO... Contact from the Pleiades: A Preliminary Investigation Report'' (published in 1982) is a cumulation of a series of reports Stevens updated annually since 1978. The 542 page book contains a lot of information, but has no index and almost no footnotes. In this section of my site a detailed table of contents for this book can be found.

| bgcolor="efefef" | Stevens explains why the Meier case in his opinion is "a most remarkable UFO case". He shortly comments upon aspects like the many photographs, the physical evidence, the sound recordings, the contact notes, the primary task of the Pleiadians, the many witnesses, the analysis of the evidence and the corroborating stories from independent sources (Elsa Schröder letter).

| bgcolor="efefef" | Stevens first hears about the Meier case in September 1976 when the (late) Swiss UFO researcher Lou Zinsstag and also UFO researcher Timothy Good visit him in Tucson in the USA. Zinsstag shows him about 16 very clear UFO photos made by Meier. His first opinion is that they look too good and that they probably are fake.

<center>17-18</center>
 
| bgcolor="efefef" | Zinsstag describes her own investigation to Stevens. She first began investigating the case in mid 1975 (she lived 120 kilometers from the area where the events were taking place. She has interviewed Meier and some of his friends and watched the developing events.

| bgcolor="efefef" | Mid 1976 Ilse von Jacobi, a UFO researcher in Germany heard of the case from her friend Margarite Rufer, a member of Meier's original study group. She decides to investigate the case, and interview Meier. Her investigation results in an article which she sends to several German papers. But they don't publish it (too "far out"). She offers a translaton of the article the publisher of an Italian magazine (''Il Giornale die Misteri''). They publish it. The German news magazine ''Quick'' then prints a short article on the same material that was printed in Italy The articles produces a flood of visitors looking for Meier in Hinwil.

| bgcolor="efefef" | Stevens continues to follow the case by mail. Zinsstag sends Stevens more photos, translated contact notes and the ''Il Giornale die Misteri'' article. Stevens starts a correspondence with the author Ilse von Jacobi, the author of the article. Stevens starts sending notes to the witness through both intermediaries (Von Jacobi and Zinnstag) and gets answers. Stevens also learns of a movie sequence through Mrs. Jacobi.

On 21 October 1977, Stevens goes for the first time to Switzerland, and together with Ilse von Jacobi visits Meier and some of the other witnesses (he meets Hans Schutzbach, Harold Proch and his sister). He wanted to "look them in the eye and see the evidence."
 
 
Stevens and von Jacobi are surprised because Meier speaks English. Both Zinsstag and Von Jacobi who had spent considerable time with him before and had warned Stevens that he would need an interpreter as Meier "didn't speak a word of English". The trip lasted 5 days.

Meier informs Stevens that he has made photos of models and that some of his slides came into the posession of Martin Sorge, and Sorge falsely inferred that Meier was trying to pass off models as real UFOs. More information on Martin Sorge and his claims can be found in appendix II, pp. 285-289 and the epilogue p. 504.

At some point during his 5 day trip, Meier took Stevens "aside and showed him some of the other pictures not in the three regular albums." There were dozens of photos from the extended space trip. Some of them showed Meier and one of the cosmonauts out of the spacecraft in identical space suits. Others showed the interior of the spacecraft.
 
 
Meier also shows Stevens some of the mineral specimens. He states "that we should look for evidence of formation under other conditions than those of our Earth if we expected to prove anything by them".
 
 
More information about the physical specimens can be found in the foreword, chapter 8, p. 124, in chapter 12, p. 261, and appendix VII, pp. 412-428.

Stevens shortly comments upon topics like the type of photo camera used by Meier, the contacts which allegedly took place before 1975, and the possibility that the UFOs are models; Stevens argues that the UFOs photographed by Meier are "obviously of some larger size than small models", and he points to a comparison which can be made between the UFO and the tree featuring in the 9 July, 1975, Fuchsbüel am Hofhalden photos.
 
 
More information on that particular series of photos can be found in chapter 4, p. 49, in chapter 9, p. 126], in chapter 11, p. 250 and in appendix II, pp. 330-330.

On these pages some of the explanations Meier gives in chapter 5 can be found; Stevens explains why Meier was chosen for the contacts; why his friends and other persons aren't allowed to meet the aliens etc.
 
 
Stevens on p. 49 states that an acquaintance of Meier upon seeing the developed pictures of the 9 July, Fuchsbüel am Hofhalden sequence, located the exact spots from which the pictures were taken. "He found that the grass here was 20 to 30 centimeters higher than the other grass around. The whole tree itself had just disappeared with no trace".
 
 
More information on that particular series of photos can be found in chapter 2, p. 27, in chapter 9, p. 126, in chapter 11, p. 250 and in appendix II, pp. 330-330.

On these pages Stevens points to some of the difficulties with the hoax theory. Stevens shortly comments upon the evidence; the contact notes, the photos, the films, the witnesses.
 
 
Regarding the 18 March, 1975, movie sequence he remarks that "the lines of the vertical axis often crossed within the frame and we should have been able to the point of suspension."
 
 
More information on this movie sequence can be found in the appendix, pp. 280-281.
 
 
He also writes that that Lou Zinsstag and Ilse von Jacobi have both spent considerable time with Meier, his wife and acquaintances, and that their investigations support the idea that something unique has taken place in Switzerland.

| bgcolor="efefef" | In April 1978, Wendelle Stevens makes his second trip to Switzerland, he's accompanied by Lee and Brit Elders. They arrive in Switzerland on Monday the 3rd of April. In this chapter Stevens describes some of the chief events which took place during their 5 day visit.
 
|-
 
| bgcolor="efefef" valign="top" |
 
<center>120-121</center>
 
| bgcolor="efefef" | On the first day (Monday) in the afternoon, Meier takes Lee Elders and Stevens to his little office. Stevens is suprised by the improvement in Meier's office since the last trip; anonymous gifts; IBM typewriter. Stevens buys about 60 new photos and and copies of contact notes and pamphlets. Meier informs them of the story of Semjase being injured on a contact with him [Meier] and also explains why Semjase does not want to be seen.
 
|-
 
| bgcolor="efefef" valign="top" |
 
<center>122</center>
 
| bgcolor="efefef" | The second day (Tuesday the fourth), there's a television crew to tape an interview. Meier and seven of his close friends are interviewed. Also Wendelle Stevens is interviewed by the television crew. The interview was "broadcated on 10 April from Zurich", and "was the first local media coverage of this case".
 
|-
 
| bgcolor="efefef" valign="top" |
 
<center>122-124</center>
 
| bgcolor="efefef" |
 
The third day (Wednesday the fifth), Stevens and the Elders "were back at the house again getting to know the rest of the group members and working with Meier on the available data". Again and they are at Meier's office. Meier talks about the benefits of the IBM typewriter; twelve pages per hour; 65 words per minute; with one finger (one arm).
 
 
Meier let them hear the tape recording of the 14 April, 1976, Schmärbüel am Maiwinkle event.
 
 
More information on this event can be found in chapter 11, pp. 248-249, the appendix II, 356 pp. 356-360 and the appendix VII, pp. 432-445.
 
 
He also let them hear a tape recording of sounds allegedly made by an unusual amphibian-like being. More information about this creature who made the "Muurgg" sounds can be found in chapter 11, pp. 244-245.
 
 
Meier also explains that some of the photographed landing tracks were left by crafts "from the direction of Lyra".

| bgcolor="efefef" |
 
In the morning of the fourth day (Thursday the sixth), Stevens and his party learn that Meier is still sleeping and that he has had another contact with Quetzal that night. Quetzal purportedly delivered a little package of Amber crystals during that contact. At the end of that day he gives them 4 metal, 1 biological and 9 mineral and crystal specimens to have examined. More information about the physical specimens can be found in chapter 1, p. 25 and appendix VII, pp. 412-428.
 
 
Also this day, Stevens apparantly orders "nine twenty by thirty inch mural prints for study for photo camerawork" and which "were to be ready the next day." He also arranges to meet Bernadette Brand, in Winterthur, the next morning to pick them up.
 
|-
 
| bgcolor="efefef" valign="top" |
 
<center>125</center>
 
| bgcolor="efefef" |
 
On the fifth day (Friday the seventh), Stevens and his party return to the US. On the way out of Switzerland he picks the prints up.
 
 
Note: Meier's contact notes indicate that the alleged contact with Quetzal took place on Wednesday the 5th, at 00:31; therefore the hand over of the physical specimens which according to Stevens in this chapter took place on the Thurday the sixth, probably took place on Wednesday the fifth (the events which are listed for Wedensday the fifth may have taken place on another day).

This chapter is about "the dozens of witnesses who have observed various of the phenomena associated with Meier contacts".
 
 
According Stevens on this page the following six witnesses were also members of Meier's original study group: Olga Walder, Amalie Stetter, Ms. M. Flammer, Margarite Rufer, Hans Schutzbach, Jacobus Bertschinger.
 
 
An important comment by Stevens on this page is that Ms Margarite Rufer and Jacobus Bertschinger have reportedly seen the tree featuring in the 9 July, 1975, Fuchsbüel am Hofalden photo sequence (the ETs had removed that tree according to Meier not long after the photo oppertunity).
 
 
More information on that particular series of photos can be found in chapter 2, p. 27, in chapter 4, p. 49, in chapter 11, p. 250 and in appendix II, pp. 330-330.

Two times during the summer of 1978, Keller-Muller, in his small home town of Schalchen, near Wila, observed UFO activity which took place, "in the direction of Schmidrüti and almost that far away". It was only later, that he learned of "Herr Meier" living in Schmidrüti, who claimed to be in contact with UFOnauts According tot Keller-Muller the UFOs "moved in an undulating and zig-zagging pattern, and sometimes with a jerky motion. They also stopped occasionally, and at other times simply "jumped" from one place to another."

Translation of a letter by one Elsa Schröder. Letter describes how this person ran accross Semjase in the Persian desert neary two miles outside the village of Zahedan in Iran. She had a short conversation with Semjase in English. Semjase was digging up "an odd spiral-like cylinder" (this ties in with information in the contact notes of the great journey). Letter has purportedly been written on 8 March, 1975. Elsa Schröder has not been located by Stevens.

The letter describes how Fenner was mentally lured into the jungle of Trinidad, Bolivia, to the site of a landed UFO. There he met entirely human occupants who spoke to him in his native German through a translating machine and told him they came from Proxima Centauri. They told him about the Pleiadians, mentioned that they had a contact named Billy Meier in Switzerland, and said that their Earth expedition was led by a man named Quetzal and his deputy named Semjase.

She informs Stevens that she does not like the anti-Christian tone of the Pleiadian messages. Zinsstag shows Stevens a UFO photograph "shot of the Neusiedler-See in west Austria".

At some point he asked Elsie Moser and Jacobus Bertschinger to take him in the car and to drive him to a remote wooded spot nearby as he directed. They helped him out of the car, but before he made it to the woods, he fainted and fell to the ground. Before Elsie of Jacobus could react to this there was a flash of bluish light and Meier was gone. The story is that Meier was transported to Semjase's spacecraft where they cured Meier. From aboard the spacecraft, using a walkie-talkie, Meier directed his friends to another spot. When his friends arrived there they met a healthy smiling Meier walking out of the woods.

In Basel Stevens had received from Lou Zinsstag a color brochure on two variations of Pleiadian spacecraft which had been made up in Bern by a photographic reproductions expert. Stevens learns from Meier that this photographic reproductions expert is Bernadette Brand, one of the close friends around him. Some days later Stevens learns from Bernadette Brand, that the "3000% enlargement was done by an electronic scanning computer that adds the average color between the existing pixels. Stevens is impressed by the resulting images and "makes a note to look in this further".

<nowiki>On these pages it can be read that Stevens had enlarged internegatives made from the original diapositives. The latter were made on 4'' x 5'' film plates and used to print 20'' x 30'' enlargements. </nowiki>
 
 
He had an "original 35 mm negative" and enlarged internegative for photo #200 scanned by INTERREPRO A. G. on the outskirts of Basel. They used a Hell Chromograph DC scanner to scan his negatives 400 lines per centimeter. The computer created four new individual color separation negatives which could be used for a four color printing process. The four color negatives were used for printing posters, that was done by Schori Repros in Bern.

On p. 339 Stevens writes with regard to photo #200. "This photograph was taken to Interrepro, A.G., in Basel where it was put into a HELL Chromograph DC 300 scanning computer which, using an Argon laser beam, scanned the ''original transparency'' at 400 lines per centimeter and created new 4-color seperation negatives. These negatives were taken to Schori Repros in Bern where they were set up and printed on poster paper [emphasis added]".
 
 
(Note: with "original transparency" Stevens probably means the original 35 mm internegative he mentions on p. 273.)

Stevens states that it "may be clearly seen that the symmetry on the left side of the rim of the spacecraft is broken by a forked branch of the the tree that is BETWEEN the ship and the camera.
 
 
Stevens also states that the internegative was scanned by American Color Corporation of Phoenix, Arizona, using an identical model HELL Chromograph DC 300 scanning computer with an Argon laser beam, using the same process as Interrepro, A.G. in Basel. "American Color made 4 seperate color seperation negatives by the same method and we printed them back in 4 color lithograpgh to obtain the result ou see here."

He also learns that Zinsstag has received new photos of a very similar spacecraft as the one used by the Pleiadians. The photos were purportedly taken by parties unknown to each other, and who had no knowledge of Meier's pictures.
 
 
The first picture was taken over Uster, Kanton Zürich, on 3 June, 1978 by Gabriel Peisker, a schoolboy of Uster.
 
 
The second picture was reportedly taken on 6 Feruary, 1979 by a witness who insists on remaining anonymous. This picture was taken over Zürich International Airport at Kloten in daytime.

| bgcolor="efefef" | Stevens learns about the 7 July, 1980 (3rd variation) spacecraft sound recording event. In the presence of 14 other witnesses, Meier and his (ex-)wife recorded forty eight minutes of the unusual sounds, using four tape recorders (only two of the four tape recorders did actually work during the recording event). Some of the individuals present during this event are: Jacobus Bertschinger, Engelbert and Maria Wächter, Eva Bieri and two of the Meier children. On p. 531 there's a picture of the site where the sound recording event took place (Ober Sädelegg).

| bgcolor="efefef" | Before leaving Switzerland Stevens paid a call on Hans Schutzbach, who had left Meier's group. He one time photographed the beamship at day light, in the presence of other witnesses. The UFO was departing from a contact scene. At that time Schutzbach told Stevens that he was convinced that at least the contacts he witnessed were real.
