The Research Facility is the final level of the Fortress of the Dead. It is mostly indoors and has multiple floors connected by elevators and stairs. Some areas of the base have been infiltrated by monsters from the other dimension. The level's ending is particularly spectacular - it is a huge dimensional gateway that the player has to pass through.

Episode Completion TextEdit

Deep within the bowels of the Research Facility, you discover the passage that the followers of Quake have used to enter our world. The bastards used some type of gigantic teleporter to overload one of our own slipgates! As long as this portal exists, Earth will never be safe from Quake's cruel minions. If you can find the source of the portal's power, you can shut it down -- possibly forever. With only a moment's consideration for your own safety, you re-enter the dark domain, knowing Hell would be a better fate than experiencing the reign of Quake.
