Overpopulation continued to deplete Earth’s natural resources, pushing the planet to unsustainable levels. Earth tasked the United Sovereign with locating another planet suitable for life. Commander Devinitely Morose, a 5-star ranking leader who directed the United States army in the Battle of Agaroth, took charge of the operation.
The United Sovereign recently built the latest Heli-Craft: the Justice Oriented Special Elite Phasing Heli-Craft (J.O.S.E.P.H.). To pilot this ground-breaking spacecraft, Commander Morose selected the experienced Captain Patrick P. Card and 11 of the world’s finest space rangers for a perilous but crucial journey to find another inhabitable planet. On June 15th 2061, Captain Card and his crew set out on their voyage.
Just a few days after they launched, however, some mysterious occurrences followed…
Crew stumbled upon the lifeless body of Breuven Court, the ship’s quartermaster. The autopsy revealed an unknown parasite species had penetrated his cerebral cortex. More specifically, the part of the brain for cognitive function was found to be damaged.
“I’ve never seen anything quite like this”, declared Ernest Von Bertram Jr., the ship’s resident doctor. “The parasite is no longer in his body. Quite perplexing. I suspect that it needs a new host to sustain itself.”
The ship’s on-board camera system was able to detect the alien parasite slithering around the ship, in search of a new host. Bertram was the only one to see the creature in its true form, and what he saw chilled him to his core.
After receiving Bertram’s status report, Captain Card ordered the crew to confine themselves in their individual quarters to protect themselves and isolate the threat. Card tasked Bertram with initiating the ship’s lock-down procedures to ensure that the parasite could not infect its next victim.
From the safety of his own quarters, Bertram instructed the ship’s AI. “Decca, initiate protocol lock down 17A! Entry ID: 998401!”
Initiating lock down sequence in 10, 9, 8, 7…
Suddenly, the parasite fled out of the camera’s view. Not knowing where it went, the frenzied doctor commanded Decca for a live feed from all on-board cameras.
“Oh my.” The doctor was startled by what he saw…
Bertram began pacing back and forth. “Perhaps the parasite is capable of increasing the cognitive functions of its host,” he pondered out loud. “If we play its game to the end, we may be able to deduce who it infected. I must send out a distress signal!”
The doctor frantically pushed several buttons. “Commander Morose, this is an S.O.S! Only the best space rangers can save us!”
“Please, you’re our only hope…”
You can join the fight! Help the crew members escape from the space alien!
