It fleshes out the story of the joint U.S./U.S.S.R. project Kletka and how it became the extraterrestrial research facility known as Thalos I.

The story so far

In the alternate history of Prey, Russian astronauts find non-terrestrial life aboard their satellite Vorona. Khrushchev and Kennedy reach an agreement to contain the satellite, resulting in the joint Kletka program. The joint venture doesn’t last long. After surviving the assassination attempt, Kennedy returns to office and takes over the joint venture. In the following twenty years, Kletka is turned into a full space station for research of the extraterrestrials. The aliens, now named Typhon, breach the containment and kill the entire research team. The U.S. shut the project down and abandon the station.

In 2030, the TranStar Corporation secures the station and turns it into a research center dubbed Thalos I. They make quick headway in understanding the aliens. Their psychotronic division promises to “redefine what it means to be human.” The experiments seem to be morally questionable, and they use people on board as subjects. Our protagonist Morgan Yu awakens on Thalos I and finds it completely overrun by the alien life form. He discovers his new alien powers, which he must use to survive, uncover the mysteries of Thalos I and save humanity.
