Storyline[]

Simon Jarrett, the survivor of a car crash that killed his friend Ashley Hall and gave him permanent brain damage, wakes up from a nightmare relieving the incident in his apartment. He receives a phone call from a neuroscientist, Dr. David Munshi, to remind him of the necessary preparation before their appointment for his experimental brain scan. Jarret meets with Munshi for the appointment and sits in the scanning apparatus, which would scan Simon's brain and assist medical professionals in rapidly modelling treatments for his serious brain damage.

When the scan completes, Simon sees a bright flash and wakes up in an unfamiliar location, which he discovers is an underwater research complex called PATHOS-II, at site "Upsilon," in a state of eerie disarray. Simon wanders the halls, with no idea how he got there or where there is. Simon moves through the site and makes radio contact with a surviving woman, Catherine Chun. Catherine tells him to meet her at site Lambda.

During his exploration of PATHOS-II, Simon encounters no evidence of present human life, but finds instead a number of robots who believe themselves to be human. He discovers that PATHOS-II exists on Earth's Atlantic ocean floor and was established far in the future from Simon's own life, in the 2060s, as a self-sufficient multinational research facility for use in mining, robotic, and space technology. He also sees much in the way of an unfamiliar black, pseudo-organic growth which is spread across every site, has destroyed parts of it, and has even infected both robots and organic lifeforms. This is later revealed to be the outgrowths of the facility's controlling AI, the WAU, which escaped normal control and became manifest through a self-guiding nanomachine substance called "structure gel," formerly used for site repairs.
