The ship that I was assigned to when I first started this (the U.S.M. Auriga) crashed about a year ago. It is now known that the Auriga was involved in a medical experiment to clone the alien species believed to have been extinct. The cloning was done through DNA found on Fiorina 161 belonging to Ellen Ripley. In essence, the officers of the Auriga cloned Ellen Ripley so that they could have the alien queen she was carrying.
What I had feared when I first started writing this came true. Thankfully Ellen’ clone took up Ripley’s old hobby. The Auriga was destroyed when it was deliberately crashed into Earth. No traces of the alien species were found.
I thought the nightmare would have ended there, but it didn’t. A month ago the Tonoro’s missing EEV was discovered. To my horror, my suspicions were confirmed. The United Systems Military found the remains of the four Tonoro survivors as well as the adult alien frozen inside. Given what the United Systems Military did on the Auriga, I can only say one thing;
God have mercy on our souls.
