- What Matters
Two scientists, Tom and Sue, are on there way to work.
I’ve got a good feeling about today.
Oh yeah? Why’s that?
Not sure I just feel as if today will be a day to remember.
Well I’d hope so, we’ve been way behind this month. Larry and Bonita are totally crushing us, not to mention any of our other co-workers.
Yeah your right, we haven’t had a discovery in months.
Tom veers the vehicle to the right
Woah! Didn’t see that coming!
That rock almost crushed us! Just pay attention.
Sorry Sue, my bad…. Hey what’s that over there?
Looks like we got ourselves a new discovery.
Tom maneuvers the vehicle over to a huge floating sphere.
Lets have a closer look shall we
They move in until they can see closely.
This really could be our big discovery; and it looks as if something has built some sort of structures!
And these things live in this conglomerate housing zones when there is so much more room everywhere else. Although they do seem to be a high performance species…
We will have to set up some cameras to capture some footage of how they live.
One step ahead of ya Tom.
Sue grabs a few cameras and goes around the habitat area setting them up before returning to the vehicle.
I would love to stay but we should go report our discovery. We will return as soon as possible and study the footage.
Sounds like a plan
A few days later Tom is moving between different scientific instruments in their laboratory as Sue with the cameras.
You got the footage? (as he turns and walks towards Sue)
Yeah, just gathered it all up. We got about 2 weeks of footage here (she sets down her load of cameras, Tom then takes tapes out of the cameras and hooks it up to a monitor).
Intriguing… (as they watch the tapes of the unknown species)
Like I said, this is our big discovery.
I didn’t think it would be like this though, these things are very…. funny looking.
I agree their bodies are sort of… weird… abdomen and external limbs are in peculiar placement
Indeed. Must be why they move so slowly. They also seem to be one of the most oblivious high performance species, I’d say.
I’ll second that. They don’t even seem to have noticed our set up, or for that matter they don’t even seem to notice we were there at all.
(They walk around the lab and switch between using different instruments while keeping their eyes on the monitor) Counter-Productive…
Huh? What was that?
This species seems counter productive in the way they interact.
Ahh yes, I’ve notice the same thing. It’s as if they are destroying each other with every interaction. Not all of them, but most of them.
I wonder why that is… interestingly enough though, they still tolerate each other.
They have to in order to survive! It’s called reproduction, simply put.
I think if we want to really learn about this species we should bring one in for testing.
They walk over to the front seats (as the lab is in the back of the vehicle), return to the habitat area, hover over a park, flip a switch, suck a man into their UFO, and fly off.
