|Alien Research Lab|
The Alien Research Lab is a large research complex featuring three labs to hold and study alien lifeforms. The labs are color-coded: LAB1 is orange, LAB2 is red, and LAB3 is blue. The player was to track down two scientists and lead them back to the entrance to LAB3 where he can escape to the surface through the emergency exit.
From the soundtrack, "Hard Technology Rock" plays in
c2a4a and "Diabolical Adrenaline Guitar" plays in
c2a4c on continuous loop throughout the maps.
The chapter was cut following the game's significant reworking in late 1997. The location and chapter eventually evolved into the Advanced Biological Research Lab in Questionable Ethics which share the same general premise. While none of the level architecture was reused, the concept of Alien Grunts being stored in containment chambers survived into the final game.
