Adrift in the ocean after a hurricane leaves their vessel damaged, the crew of Captain Everton (Donald Sutherland) comes across a ship they hope will help them. They board the damaged Russian scientific cruiser but find it deserted. They decide to take it back to port and claim the salvage fee but, as they power the ship back up, strange things begin to happen on board - and the ship drops anchor onto their vessel, sinking it. When they find one of the crew still alive, they learn that an alien computer virus has taken over the ship and is making machines. Its aim - to wipe out the virus on earth - man.
