In 1962 a top secret government agency designed a spaceship to explore the deepest reaches of outer space. On its voyage back to Earth it disappeared without a trace. 44 years later Jack Alder, a rouge CIA agent, has uncovered the government's dark secret. Today Alder is set to unleash an evil on this planet like nothing man has ever seen. Fueled by his own ambition and greed, he has devised a plan that threatens the fate of all humanity as he opens the door to something not of this Earth.

Soon, he finds himself battling for his own life against a band of mercenaries, government agents and Earth's deadliest visitor.
