For those who are not familar, see link.

Say there is an earthquake, or similar disaster. The team is called to action. The team goes to sleep wherever they are, and then use astral travel to get to the disaster site. Their non-physical nature would allow the team to search through the rubble for victims. Upon waking, team members would contact the onsite team to dig/help the victims out.

       Great tagline, but I'm disinclined to vote either way for this one.

       Definitely an interesting idea...if you believe in that stuff.

       They do that at the Monroe Institute...well, not exactly. They go out and find dead people who don't know they're dead and help them move on. I guess it cuts down on the number of ghosts.

       And here I thought this would be a team that could help me locate my body.
