    • (intro for Perestroika)
      Fifty thousand years ago, much of the northern hemisphere was covered by glaciers. Both early man and animals retreated before the relentless force of the Ice Age. But what if, at that time, some presently unknown creature was caught by this worldwide winter storm and preserved within the polar ice cap? What would happen if the ice surrounding this frozen creature began to melt? These were the circumstances which the OSIR was summoned to confront in Case #321147.

    • (extro for Perestroika)
      We have recently been fascinated with the techniques of cryogenics, the study of very low temperatures and their effects on organic matter, the concept of suspended animation. Now amphibians have been frozen and successfully revived but what the OSIR encountered in the Russian north went far beyond modest experiments. Theories ranged from a parasite of extraterrestrial origin to a native species mutated by badly stored nuclear material. Whatever the cause, the effect as we saw was truly unfortunate.
