The survivors of a devastated future Earth lie in suspended animation on a great satellite. When Earth is safe again, they will awaken.

The Wirrrn Queen has infiltrated the satellite, and laid her eggs inside one of the sleepers. As the first of the humans wake, they face an attack by the emerging Wirrrn.
