The alarm flared again, bathing the room in a deep red light. I was terrified, so terrified, in fact, that I turned off the viewscreen just to avoid seeing it. By the divines, it was gargantuan -- how had the long-range sensors missed picking it up? The alarm flared again. The ship rattled, a toy in comparison to the creature before me. Your doom is coming. I ran to the engine room, maybe there I could manually release the safeties to put full power into reversing the ship. Mortal, I taste the essence of your soul. I flipped the override switch, then with a few deft key presses shunted all of the energy in the weapons systems, life support in the main cabin, and non-essential systems into the engines. Give in, petty creature. Let me take you from this existence. I didn't understand. The ship was still being dragged in. I have devoured thousands of your kind. You will not succeed. Sparks flew around everywhere, flames danced across the floor, then everything went dark.
