The project first surfaced at Adam Rodin's annual trackingb.com feature contest, and here's the official synopsis from the website:

Over the Mojave Desert, an alien ship the size of the Chrysler building falls from the sky. Exhibiting no signs of life or communication, a team of brave, possibly insane, individuals must venture inside on a mission that could be mankind's greatest discovery - or gruesome death. What they will find is a power beyond their understanding, wonderous and extremely dangerous, one that will change them forever.
