The TranStar is the corporation in Prey that have managed to control the rogue alien race. The aliens, later named the Typhon, originally flocked to the space station, Talos 1 when it was created to study the extra terrestrials.
Prey is set in the year 2032, in an alternative timeline where John Kennedy was never assassinated. Already an exhilarating plot that has triggered a very different future. In power, JFK invested heavily in the space program and in this future, we have a better understanding of space and the number of space stations set up by the president.
The space stations attracted an alien species, which humans decided to study in a hope to harness their unique abilities. The project had to be closed down in 1988 as the alien species, known as the Typhon, took over the space station and killed the scientists investigating them.
The Prey story begins with Morgan exploring Talos 1, with a Prey trailer revealing that he had been the subject of experiments after an elite team of scientists known as the TranStar Corporation managed to harness the Typhon.
Our protagonist Morgan Yu begins to unearth the horrors on Talos 1 and the aliens that lie in wait of humans they can feast on. The Prey story is atmospheric and we know once we wake as Morgan that the journey will not be easy, but we must face the nightmare humans created head on.
