The chapter Introduction: "The InGen Incident" shows a basic description on the time period, as well as an eerie cliffhanger like opening to the novel Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton.


A brief review of the history of genetic engineering is described, followed by descriptions on its foundation, motions, progress and finally, its pinnacle. The Introduction then reveals foreshadowing about a tragic event that took place in late August, 1989, on a remote island off the west coast of Costa Rica, with just over 20 people there to witness it.
