The gas giant Neptune is 17 times the size of earth and the farthest planet in our solar system. It's an extremely hostile place. With storm wind speeds of +1000 mph and
a temperature of -250. On March 4, 2112, the SS Neptune observatory space station is in orbit around Neptune, it has a rover on the moon Triton. Neptune's largest moon. The rover is model CDR6 , this rover is nicknamed Condor. It has 16 wheels and is very heavy. The Condor is conducting ice core samples. The Condor has received an ultra low static radio frequency coming from a canyon 9 miles from the boring site. As the 360 camera does a pan of the surroundings, it picks up an image of a formation. The image looks like a silo of some sort. Maybe 90 feet tall and 20 feet wide. It is solid white in color, and has a tall triangular pointed top section. with what appears to be a fluorescent green colored smoke billowing out of the top pointed section. The interesting thing is that the smoke is in sync. with the radio frequency. It's pulsing. It's acting like an antenna. The geysers in the area have also become more active since the arrival of the Condor as if the silo is communicating with the geysers. Triggering an alarm system if you will. VERY STRANGE. The crew is speechless with this finding. While all of this is going on, the medical staff on board the Neptune have a major problem. A crew member is extremely ill. With symptoms they have never seen before.
During last night's 1 year celebration for the Neptune's success in space, Lt. Imori from the Japan space program has ingested some kind of biologically contaminated food. Lt. Imori is very unstable with violent hallucinations ( she is in a panic about a fire in a house ) her eyes have rolled over to white, the smell of unimaginable odor, excretion of blueish grey fluid from the skin and extraordinary strength. Her skin is starting to split as she screams in agony. She is quarantined in the medical bay in sector 7. Lt. Imori is with medical team, and is restrained on the exam. table. The medical team is in shock with this situation. All Radio communication from The Neptune to the MCC, ( Mars Command Center ) is not functioning at this time. Due to a large comet explosion between the Neptune and the MCC. The situation now becomes a life or death crisis on board the SS Neptune. Will the crew attempt to communicate with possible other life forms in our solar system or fight to survive the escalating threat on board the ship ? Or both ? The situation and the mission become very sensitive and intense. The cause of the illness to lt. Imori begins in a cave in Guatemala. This is not found for years after the incident occurs. It is a biological nightmare that is out of control. It travels from the landing gear on a Guatemala cargo plane, to a Texas beef processing facility, and onto the space shuttle "QUEEN" in Arizona. Destination ? MCC, then off to the SS NEPTUNE. The crew is 12 strong. From 4 space programs. USA, Japan, Russia and Czech Republic. The biohazard poison will wipe out 9 of the crew members in the most gruesome and violent behavior ever seen by the astronauts. As the situation on the Neptune becomes a liability for 3 survivors. Orders are given from Phoenix to rig the 2 fueling areas and the medical bay with all explosives on board the craft, make an emergency escape plan and destroy the SS Neptune. They will create a detonation system and escape in the L17. ( the L17 is a small repair ship ) They will make the voyage safely back to the MCC.
The condor will continue it's mission on Triton. Scientists will use all photo processing and recording devices on the Condor to attempt communication with the silo's transmissions. Ice core sampling and testing is halted.
ALL IS NOT LOST.
Finding Life is finding DEATH.

In 2016, Zombie films were the hot ticket. I could not get in to it. But I had an idea.
SPACE STATION V
The year was 2054. The outbreak of an unknown virus which, if INFECTED will cause severe hallucinations, sub human strength and canibalism. Unlike the Ebola virus, this virus will not kill the infected, but will mutate.
For International Space Station V.O.P. ( Valkyrie Observatory Platform ) located in constellation Taurus near the star Aldebaran, with a population of 17 astronauts from 4 space programs, USA, Japan, USSR, Czech Rep. life was good. Year # 1 had gone by without a glitch.
The first year celebration was set. a party was planned. All supplies and MREs ( meals ready to eat ) transported to VOP were meticulously inspected and sterilized.
Captain Lansik, chief flight officer of the Czech Republic Space Program. She has requested an alternative to the MREs they had on board the craft. The request was granted, in the new issue of MREs was 1 abnormal item, 1 piece of meat, contaminated with the virus. The virus was inside of a FLEA which had bitten an INFECTED and found its way into the food chain after protests at a meat packing plant in Ostrava, Czech Republic. ( This detail is not discovered until investigations were completed months later )
Petty officer Zahn, from Omaha NE. He was the lucky recipient of the contaminant.
symptoms ( occur within 3 hours after consumption )
3- sweating of a green, milk like substance. ( which smells like ammonia )
4- eyes turn solid white.
5- violent hallucinations.
6- sub human strength
7- canibalism and reinfection of the bitten.
The virus gets into the air duct system and drinking water. 11 members of the crew are ultimately infected.
The F.A.R. ( first alert report ) was sent to P.A.L.F. ( Phoenix Aeronautical Landing Facility ) immediately.
All attempts to rescue the crew and the craft failed due to adverse weather conditions, mechanical failure and polical opposition.
The VOP has a confinement zone in corridor H, The uninfected crew will develope weapons, traps and barriers to fight the infected.
A portion of the craft is reassembled to create a getaway ship. ( this ship is called XYMOX )
The oxygen supply and nytrogen tanks are rigged with homemade explosives.
The VOP is then detonated into oblivion.
Ther are 6 survivors.
They land safely at PALF.
