Studying the Monolith
Journey to Maveth
While working at NASA in 2001, Taylor was offered the chance to join a team in going through a portal created by the Monolith and learning to where it transported them. Taylor eagerly volunteered alongside Will Daniels, Brubaker, and Austin. Once they arrived, they set up base and began work while waiting for NASA to figure out a way to bring them home.
Madness and Attempted Murder
One day, the crew decided to explore while Will Daniels stayed behind and protected the camp. During this time, a huge sandstorm briefly swept the land. When they returned, each of the astronauts were enthralled by Hive and began losing control of their sanity. Taylor's madness caused him to destroy much of the camp before attacking Daniels; after a brief fight, Daniels was forced to kill his friend and bury his body alongside the others.
- Taylor's name is a reference to astronaut George Taylor, portrayed by Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
