Once, the Cold Storage facility was a vibrant, active research centre on Installation 05. An accidental contamination resulted in an unforeseen outbreak, which compromised the Forerunner centre. Now, emptied and silent, watched only by a local caretaker, the abandoned structure serves as a reminder of how something as powerful as science is ultimately beholden to nature.
