In the early 23rd century, the Earth 's highest paying jobs are on deep space mining colonies. On mining stationO.I. Infini,an emergency is declared, and a SAR team is sent in using a form of teleportation, which allows instantaneous travel, but causing severe time dilation. A team sent returns 30 seconds later in a berserk rage. Whit Carmichael, a new member of West Coast SAR, on his first day, teleports to Infini using a hacked teleporter after East Coast HQ activates a lethal lockdown to contain the crisis.
Less than a relative hour later, East Coast SAR is informed about the outbreak, and West Coasts destruction, and is given a mission to recover a mining station member, but is retasked to recover Whit. Arriving, the find a slaughterhouse, eventually reuniting with Whit after he questions the team captain through an ASCII terminal. Whit explains that the mining staff slaughtered each other, tearing off their skin and killing one another. After a survivor attacks and exposes the rescue team, Whit searches the station for anything relating to the disease. Finding a lab, he discovers a log of the original research station, that documented the planet is actually entirely organic, and when thawed forms a primordial ooze, infecting and eventually mimicking and dominating any biological tissue, and is predatory in nature. Whit attempts to solicit help from the team as they begin going insane, leaving Whit the last alive. He records a looped message to the ooze, believing it is aware and self-aware, mocking it for focusing exclusively on humanities violent base instincts, and that they could've worked together otherwise, before passing out. He awakens to find the whole team, alive and restored, with no memories of the rampage. The captain, baffled by events, states that they will call for early extraction, and that more 3 hours have passed. As they begin the teleportation process, Whit sees several humanoid forms that appear to be made of the ooze silently watching them go. Returned to Earth, the team is screened for biological contaminents before being released.
