"Sir. We've received an alert from Watchtower two ninety one; in orbit around Kannat's star."

"An alert? That's... unusual. Details?"

"Sir, the Watchtower has detected an unknown vessel entering the system. Configuration does not match any Terran vessels in the registry."

"Did it send a Video?"

"Sir. Yes, sir."

"Put it onto the main screen please."


Everyone looked up as the Watchtower mini vid came on. The organic structure appeared, orbiting the hot gas giant planet. Beneath it a tornado rose up to meet the vessel, visibly shrinking the glowing world.

"Sir is it? Is it taking on materials?"
