In a far corner of space, orbiting a massive black hole, a research ship discovers a strange asteroid. Then the killing begins, and a cult rises declaring the rock their god. A small group of survivors face an army of undead crew members, the reanimated corpses of hundreds of failed genetic experiments, the murderous cult, and—worst of all—the rapidly evolving creature in containment room 7.
