At what was thought to be an abandoned facility in the heart of Salisbury, there's been movement.
People have been caught on camera coming and going carrying scientific equipment and classified files.
This facility, Station Athena, was once one of the UK's leading research stations belonging to the RESPECT Foundation. Said to be focussing on genetics and human development they went from being at the forefront of many scientific breakthroughs in their field to completely silent.
No one has heard from or seen any of the RESPECT scientists from the station. Their families have also disappeared.
Has there been a cover up? Was the RESPECT Foundation hurriedly closed down? Where are those involved and what is happening at the once deserted Station Athena?

Several decades ago a world federal task force was formed called RESPECT. Its purpose was to ease the uncontrolled growth of the global population while balancing the resources required to sustain humanity into the next Millennium.
RESPECT spent many years collecting and analysing data and running computer simulations. They even factored in future efficiencies through innovation and adaptation. Their conclusion was that to do nothing would be morally worse than doing something.
Behind closed doors, governments and scientists discussed potential solutions, all leading to the moral dilemma: how do you weigh the lives of billions of people against the survival of the species?
Solutions put forward by RESPECT were considered too severe and sparked controversy across the world. The task force was disbanded.
Evidence has now surfaced that some of its senior operatives have formed a new faction known as SPECTRE. We are looking for agents to investigate SPECTRE and uncover their plans.
