Description

Deep beneath the ocean, an ancient alien starship awaited discovery. When its tachyon distress signal was finally discovered by humanity, three men located and entered the sunken spaceship. The men were quickly attacked and caught by the pair of vicious, dinosaur-bred guard dogs that freely roamed the corridors of the vessel. Days later, the H.E.A.T. team also arrived to investigate the mysterious signal originating from the spaceship. Once inside, they too were quickly attacked by the monsters. Monique was able to hold the beasts off for a few seconds thanks to a flare gun, but she was extremely low on ammunition and the team would need far greater firepower to put up a fight.

Cornered, things looked grim for the monster hunters until the wall behind them strangely opened up. Without any choice, they ventured deeper into the ship where the mysteries of the aliens and their vicious plans for the planet would be unraveled. They managed to break away from the invaders and cause the ship to self-destruct, killing the pair of monstrous guard dogs in the resulting flooding and exploding of the ship.

The Reptilians are capable of launching numerous, constricting tentacles from their irregularly-shaped maws. These tentacles are launched with great speed and strength, and are capable of effortlessly dragging away struggling men without much resistance.
