Movie Summary

A group of scientists, found clues that they determine to be clues about their origin and creators. They put the clues together and manage to map a course deep into space into a distant galaxy, to find answers about them. The crew arrives on the planet with minimal problems, they find a huge dome structure and decides to investigate the building. Upon investigation they find out that the air inside the structure is oxygen and it has an immense network of tunnels, a couple of hours into the exploration the scientists are told to return to the ship because of an approaching storm.

Everyone except for two crew members make it back to the ship as those two got lost and wound up spending the night in the structure. The scientists had unknowingly unleashed some sort of organic matter, which came to life and killed the two crew members who had gotten lost. The robot that was with them, during the exploration had taken a sample of the material and poisoned one of the scientist. That scientist had sex with his partner the night of being poisoned.

The next day they went back to exploring / searching for the other two crew members, they make it to the room they were in the day before and found the viles had all leaked and the contents were now on the floor. They also found the two crew member’s gear smashed and that was when the poisoned scientist fell ill, and the team was forced to return to the ship in a haste, everyone except for the robot, who found a secret control room, and one of the aliens alive.

The sick scientist is killed and his partner, finds out that she is pregnant and escapes capture, and manages to perform a self-abortion, she then learns that the sponsor for the entire trip is on the ship, and she is now forced to go with the group to find the alien. They revive the alien, and he goes nuts and kills practically everyone in the room. She realizes that the aliens were heading to earth to kill them, and the now revived alien planned on completing his original mission. The scientist ship manages to take down the alien ship but is destroyed in the process.

The alien however is not killed and has now set his sights on her, the aborted mutation intervenes and kills the alien, but gives birth to an evolved alien being. The scientist, manages to find the robot who is in terrible shape but is still working and gets his help to manoeuvre, and find another of their ships, and set her sights on the alien’s home planet.

Review

An average movie, not a lot of action or drama, some violence, but enjoyable. This movie is more or less a prelude to Alien VS Predator as they bear a lot of similarities.
