The hulk was spotted by a Space Wolves' scout vessel, doing a routine patrol on the edge of the area of warp/real space overlap known as the Eye of Terror. The ship's Astropath broadcast the hulk's location back to the Chapter's home world, Fenris, from where the information was passed on to Earth. The majority of the Space Wolves were away, fighting a campaign against Chaos Renegades on the other side of the Eye of Terror. As one of their companies prepared for mobilisation, the Space Wolves received a message from the Blood Angels First Company, who had just arrived at the space hulk. Because of the uncertain nature of astropathic communication, the Blood Angels had received the Space Wolves' message two weeks before it had been sent. Once again, fate had led the Blood Angels into battle with the Genestealers. Commander Borgia, commander of the Blood Angels' force, named the hulk 'Spawn of Execration'. The massive ship was so huge it dwarfed the Imperial craft that gathered round it. The hulk seemed to be a compacted mass of old spaceships and space debris. Incredibly, scans revealed the thing was powered, and registered large numbers of life signs. The sheer size and density of the hulk meant the scanners were unable to penetrate much further than the outermost layers. It would be logical to assume the life forms were Genestealers, but this close to the Eye of Terror the presence of other, more sinister, occupants could not be ruled out. There was only one way to find out: the Space Marines would have to board the hulk and investigate. No matter what evils lurked aboard this floating wreck nothing would be allowed to stand against the might of the Blood Angels Terminators. .
