Bent on assimilating Earth’s native species, this being infiltrates the facility – creating a perfect imitation of one of the Outpost 31 crew. The staff frantically beign a sweep of the base, desperate to purge this alien infection before escaping to warn McMurdo Station that somewhere, out there in the frigid darkness, something horrible is waiting.
