Opening narration 
||Welcome to the near future, where a society, free of violence, suddenly finds itself threatened by a savage enemy. Now Jeffrey Freed is about to get a taste of the bad old days as he journeys into the wilds of the Twilight Zone.
A genetically altered creature, of a species thought exterminated long ago, has returned to menace society in the near future. After four hikers are killed, a group of soldiers is dispatched to hunt down the creature but soon it becomes unclear who is hunting whom. At the end, Jeffrey Freed and his kind turn out to be cyborgs when it is revealed that the "monster" called the "Kreetor" is really a human, the last remaining one who tries to get the cyborg to help his pregnant mate. The cyborg refuses, kills the monster, and leaves. Back at Jeffrey's house, he walks in, and says, "Unplug the baby. He needs some sleep." The story ends with his wife unplugging the baby.
Closing narration 
||God created humanity in his image. Humans created Jeffrey Freed and his kind in their image. Extinction or evolution? I guess it all depends on your point of view.
