The MES-1 Allohistory visits a new, modern day (or near-future ?) timeline that seems to be having problems with a mysterious ISOT anomaly. The crew's early suspicions of what they might be dealing with are further compounded when they learn the anomaly is occuring beneath the waves of the Caspian Sea, not far from the infamous Damned Kazakh Border.
In an unusual turn of luck, the inhabitants of the timeline are resourceful and not entirely defenseless against the threat posed by the anomaly. Even before the Allohistory arrived, the locals realised that…
…to fight monsters, they have to create monsters of their own.
