With the Raptor threat abating, Fedorov and Karpov launch themselves on a concerted effort to find the last of the missing keys for the Kamenski Device. Every
key recovered increases the power of that box and gives them more control.

Following Byrd’s flight path, Fedorov joins the Away Team and discovers a series of connected ice caverns and tunnels deep beneath the central ice dome near the South Pole, and something more... There, the team makes an amazing but dangerous find, but Fedorov’s ambition in attempting to take it aboard Baikal poses a grave threat to the ship and crew, and one that extends nearly 80 years later in 2026, when Tyrenkov sends them on a relief operation to Russia’s northernmost outpost in the Arctic.
