First Contact

“All stop. Hail the creature”
“Sir, there’s too much interference.”
“Contact! Hull breach in deck five.”
“Red alert. Security! Any response to our hails?”
“No sir. I… would have mentioned it.”
“Do we have tactical?”
“No sir. The interference. Remember?”
“Excuse me ensign?!”
“That’s ok, we’re used to it.”
“This is engineering. I have to agree with the ensign; you ask stupid bloody questions..”
“Crew! We are at RED ALERT…”
“Oh! Red Alert is it? Maybe the klaxon will scare the monster away?”
“ENOUGH!...... Where is it now?”

“Well… "
"Sir… "
"It’s been a pleasure serving with you.“
