It’s “a hundred years into the future”. UN inspector, Nathan Kane, is called to investigate a research space station. They have discovered an extremely ancient and technologically-advanced race of beings kept in suspended animation, beneath the ocean of Europa (a moon orbiting Jupiter). The ancient machines are found to possess immense destructive powers and have been reactivated.

Plot-twist: The good guys are also confronted by a big, sterile and impersonal conglomerate Whose employees are contracted to lose their personalities and let the company impose a corporate template during their employment duration (you get the sense it’s an allusion to a Microsoft-China merger!)
