After the war, all communication is lost as the station continues to stay on the outer rim of the earth for a few months. Something mysterious takes over control of the space station forcing it to come back into the atmosphere off course landing the three astronauts in eastern Nova Scotia. As they crash land Walker exits and is quickly killed by what is called a Terminal – a diseasedhuman.
Later that night Howe leaves Jordan behind in the craft, who had been knocked unconscious on impact, in search of help and a way to escape. He encounters a survivalist named Vinny who takes Howe prisoner after he saves him from other Terminals.Eventually both of them are captured and taken to a makeshift fortress of junk, where Howe is reunited with Jordan. A teenager named Gideon is in charge of the compound. Gideon wants to find a safe zone that has yet to be destroyed and we find out he was the one who brought the space station crashing back to earth. Gideon puts all the prisoners on trial and plans to have them executed, however Howe is able to trick Gideon and escape with the other prisoners. Howe returns later to confront Gideon – but Gideon is already sailing away to the safe zone.
