Dahl had nowhere to go but the other ship as the Rebel ship scared him more. He crept into the other ship looking around both corners, the right one was pitch black while the left one had a single flickering light revealing a corner, he decided to go left looking behind him frequently. When he reached the corner he saw a door that was slightly a jarred off its hinges, but he saw movement through the cracks in the door and approached carefully, when he got to the door he saw 2 humans and one of those creatures 'are the creatures and human working together?' he first thought. He was too busy watching them converse with each other as one of the creatures snuck up behind him and slashed his shoulder. Dahl yelled in pain (like a metallic sounding one) and fell through the door on his front and weakly crawling away from the door as the creature ran off, Dahl propped himself on the wall, holding his deeply cut shoulder he was in too much pain to notice the 2 humans and the creature. Dahl is a different kind of Lanius so he doesn't drain all the oxygen but 1/4 of it so the air is stale

"Isn't the helm this way though?" Lux asked as she followed Kyrie down the corridor until suddenly her friend shined her light on some tall, thin and slimy creature. Lux raised her blaster at the creature, finger about to press the trigger when she realised that the creature was also very spiky; she took a whiff of the air and realised that it was more... stale than the rest of the ship. Air doesn't get stale that quickly unless life support has been out for weeks, like on the Pelican from time to time, she thought to herself.
"Wait... it's one of those Lanius" Lux said to Kyrie "I don't know much about them, even after all this time but I do know that he's probably a lot safer than what's out there..."
Then she saw in the darkness; two more figures. One of them wore a Rebel uniform, the other was Jake.
"You traitorous bastard!"

Hey look, by coincidence we're all meeting up :D

Meanwhile, stuff was happening on the Pelican as Eden was trying to figure out how to get systems online. "I need that bypass" she stated over the comms "It's just the main reactor that's out isn't it?"

Grom held her ground, fighting off the creatures one punch at a time. She reached for a defibrillator to shock these creatures, only to find it too was deactivated. Still made a pretty good weapon though. However, Grom was getting fatigued, she knew that they would eventually overwhelm her. Luckily, however, the translator kicked in. A static-like noise filled the room as the creatures was translated.
Bzzzz, “Kill the armageddon!” One of the creatures shouted, the others attacked.
“Armageddon?” Grom questioned, “What do you mean?” The creatures continued their onslaught.
“Wait, you can understand us?” One of them asked.
“Well, I can now. Perhaps we could solve this peacefully?” The creatures stopped their onslaught.
“We thought you were some kind of demon.”

Meanwhile...
Sediment stayed in the helm. He heard Jake leave, but a quick look outside and he was gone. He sat in the captain’s chair, staring into space. It was, dark. The weird particles were still coming out of th black hole, hitting the glass.
“Sarah?” He called out. Nothing responded. Sed was unsure whether this is due to the power outage or her processing unit being overwhelmed. He tired the communicators.
Bzzzzzzzzzzz...
Nothing.
Tried again.
Bzzzzzzzzzzzz...
Still nothing.
He slouched back into the chair, staring at the stars. ‘Sometimes, just sometimes, space is absolutely remarkable.’

Dahl's shoulder was still sliced, when he looked up he saw the humans and despite the condition he was in, he scrambled to a corner out of fear and confusion shakingly holding up his cryo-thrower. (Your universal translator kicks in) "scared...fear...confuse" Dahl continued "Not...go...close". Dahl weakly stood up.

Dahl is scared of other species and was tested on by the Rebels

What had gone down was not at all what Kyrie expected. She expected some unidentified alien but instead it was a lanius with some kind of device, and to top it off Jake had appeared and was talking to a rebel like they were old friends. Lux seemed to have forgotten the Lanius and had jumped to accusations of treason. Kyrie kept her rifle raised, now unsure of who to point it at.

'Beautiful.' Sediment stared into space, 'beautiful' the only word he could describe it. He has never seen anything like it.
Occasionally he would try to contact someone through the comms, nothing responded but static. He would then go back to staring.

"How much time has passed?" He said aloud to himself, alone. He reached for the comms to try to contact someone again. "Let's see if this works, for, what? The 13th try?" He turned it on.
"This is Sediment of the Mutare, how may I..." Unlike the other times, someone replied.
"Sediment? This is King of the Scarab." King sounded relieved, "I've been trying to contact someone for an unknown amount of time."
"King? Wow, long time no see. How long has it been?' Sediment asked.
"What? This inquiry must be temporarily disregarded, there are more pressing matter. I'm not sure where those, things, are but they got Gorlag and my arm!"
"Wait, what are you talking about?"
"Have you not sighted the entities? They're all over the Scarab, they're trying to terminate us!"
Sediment was shocked, he was surprised that he never even heard these things that King claimed to have seen.
"Wha, what do they look like?" He asked, half afraid and half intrigued.
"From the brief interaction with..." Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Back to static.

Sediment was afraid, there were aliens on the Mutare that he didn't even know about. What if they got Jake, or Kyrie, or anyone else. He hasn't seen anyone, let alone stepped outside this room.
'Stale air? Are these... things King were talking about just Lanius? Or maybe they drain oxygen like Lanius?' Sediment decided to investigate, first grabbing a blaster pistol. He walked out of the helm, looking around the corner. He saw a Lanius, with a weapon of sorts. It was shivering, and muttering something, although it was hard to hear what. Sediment stepped out more and spoke. "Urr, hello Lanius. Ummm, we mean you no harm." He was unsure whether it even understood him, or even if it means harm.

Dahl held his cryo-thrower with his right arm as he backed to the wall and slid down it into a sitting position. “Scared...monster...freeze” Dahl’s left shoulder had been deeply slashed by one of the creatures so he couldn’t hold his weapon properly and was worn out. “Scared...Rebels...take...Dahl” There was a long pause “Again”

Jake was startled as more lights appeared in the darkness, but relieved once he realized it was just his friends. "Guys! Don't worry! They're on our side!" He explained everything the "moster" had told him, how they were from another universe, and how they thought we were attacking.

“Rebels?” Sediment questioned. This Lanius was obviously confused about where he was. “We are not a part of the Rebellion, and we defiently don’t want to take you.”

Meanwhile...

“Demon?” Grom asked the creatures. “What made you think that.”
One creature responded.
“Our kind live in the a bubble within your universe. It was thought for a long that beyond the bubble that vicous demons lie in wait.”
“Demons?” Grom asked. “Why did you think that?”
“That is what we believed. Demons that would tear apart our bubble.” One of the creatures continued. “When a beam of energy hit our bubble, it tore our world apart. As a last ditch attempt to save our kind, we used a transporter technology to leave our bubble.”
“Wow, that, shakes our understanding of, everything.”

Meanwhile, on a rebel ship...

“Trusting kids with top secret knowledge, idiots.” The rebel general remarked.
“You might be surprised about what they can do.” The Lanius replied.
“Well, I know what they can’t do, predict this happening.” Footsteps started circling the general. “What the? Oh, I think they're here, let me get back to you Lanius.” the general turned off the comms and turned around to spy a creature.
“Why hello!” he said. “No need to hide yourself, I know you're here.” the creature came out.
“... Armageddon... friendly?” The rebels basic translator could translate a few words from the creature.
“Armageddon? Well if you're referring to me I am definitely friendly, if anything I'm a saviour to this universe.”
“... no kill?...”
“Yes, I have no intention to kill.”

Lux still had her gun pointed at Jake as he explained the whole story. The creatures, the portal, the destruction... the Rebel he was talking to was a victim...
Slowly she lowered the blaster; however she did not holster it, her fingers close to the trigger. "This is a lot to take in" she said to him "But if your new friends turn out to be lying..."

Meanwhile on the Pelican, Eden was hearing voices coming from what was probably the helm. The slime within had taken shape and was proclaiming very harshly about its intent to kill... the pirate tried shooting at it only to have the blasts go right through, impacting with the deck plating.
"Destroy... intruders...!" the creature declared, shuffling slowly across the floor "Threats... to our space..."

Just so you know, these are not the same guys on the Mutare whom we've made First Contact with...
