In the wake of 10 Cloverfield Lane, there’s a full-fledged monster invasion universe in the makings — and now we know how the next installment could fit in with the other films.

A supposedly leaked synopsis for the upcoming mid-budget sci-fi flick God Particle has shown up online via Reddit, and alleges to be the plot outline for the space-set thriller. The film is directed by Julius Onah and was born as an original sci-fi pitch but evolved into a piece of the Cloverfield universe when J.J. Abrams signed on to produce.

According to the plot breakdown, the story tracks a team of astronauts testing out a critical piece of tech that could help repel an alien invasion (presumably the monster from the first film, and the ones mentioned in 10 Cloverfield Lane). But things go sideways when astronauts from a European spaceship show up.

Check out the full breakdown below, and let us know what you think:

God Particle is set to open in October.
