I’m half sensing/half scanning the crew as our ship rushes towards it. The Captain demands I relay all useful intelligence. STAT! What do I see? What do I sense? But the issue I always face with him…ALWAYS FACE…is that it’s not the way I experience it.
For instance, now? I’m sensing a life form floating in blue liquid. Eyes trained on a blue overhang. This life form is in a state of suspended…happiness, I suppose. As to my sense of where their armament sits, its strength relative to our ship, any and all other useful valuations is blocked by this piercing image I can’t seem to cancel or erase.
They call it “swimming”. “Floating”
Maybe these life forms specialize in mind control?
I’ll advise the Captain to open Chanel D so that we might communicate. It’s easier to scan the aliens when they’re distracted by first contact.
