Story Line: You are alone on the surface of a
  desolate planet in some God-forsaken
  star system. Your ride home is the 
  Starship Pleiades, now enroute to 
  retrieve you.  However, when the 
  Pleiades arrives in system, you
  realize something is terribly,
  terribly wrong...  
Description: Single level with more than a megabyte 
  of new graphics. This level weighs in 
  at more than 1.7 meg with level data at 
  370 K. This is huge but the play area
  is not overly large; a lot of sectors
  and linedefs were used purely for 
  visual effects and appearances. 
  Views of outer space are created
  using a non-repeating, verically
  retilable sky texture. Views include view
  of space both over and under structural
  parts of the Starship Pleiades when
  looking out some of the portholes. (F_SKY
  is assigned to both floor and ceiling in
  the same sector which I found a way to 
  make it work without the hall-of-mirrors
  that typically occurs when doing this.) 
  Play action features random monster
  placement which gives the action a
  different twist each time it is
  played. Finally, this level is a
  standard patch wad that does not alter 
  the main Doom wad and is playable
  with the standard -file parameter.
Additional Credits: Doug Ryerson, I borrowed a few of his
  textures from his ANTARES.WAD. Dave
  Swift, I borrowed his idea of shiny gold
  surfaces for a door textures from
  his H2HMUD01.WAD level. ID 
  Software, I redefined their COMPSTA1 and
  COMPTALL textures as animated textures
  to produce "living" instrument panels.

  this happens, you get an easy kill (just
