   A young weather researcher, Svetlana Kerenskia, uncovers in the Library of Congress a tattered old journal. It tells of a long forgotten expedition to a Grand Canyon cave filled with ancient Egyptian relics. One of them gives a warning: that the 'time of troubles' will soon return.
   A secret space mission to a wayward asteroid discovers that an alien baae, damaged from some long ago catastrophe, is blasting torrents of highly charged particles at the Earth's ionosphere. The astronauts soon come to realize that this is the cause of the depreciating weather. But they find something out even more disturbing. That their mission was meant to fail from its very inception. Left to die, they explore the underground catacombs and soon discover a vast crypt room filled with thousands of glass coffins. The entire alien population has been quarantined, but why? As the asteroid hurdles towards earth, the astronauts realize that a bizarre plague has infected the aliens. This is the warning that the ancient Egyptian relic warned. And there is only one way to stop the plague once it reaches the Earth. You must answer the riddle; 'What is the Number of Infinity?'. Think of this as 'The Terminator' meets Orwell's '1984'.
