- Day 3 aboard the Icarus
The ship was quiet. The contagion was isolated in the med bay and two more crew members found. Ten a warning that there was problem with the lighting in the engineering. Thought the damn engineer fixed this, but apparently not. Investigated the engineering corridors, had to go down the maintenance shafts, don’t really like tight spaces. Found somebody in the shaft, tried to get close to examine but then light got in the way, horrible, horrible sickness, wan face, twisted out of proportion. Ran towards the other exit, blocked by group but the thing attacked, ripping the NBC suit he was wearing, my ears still ring from the shotgun blasts. Then some asshole, Zel, calls over the radio “They’re everywhere, they’re all around you” Panic Ensues, Idiot with Flamethrower, Drek “Sparky” Tater, lights the tunnels up. Fortunately the idiot can’t aim so only some of the circuitry and equipment fried.
Took body of “Thing” back to med lab for autopsy,_ no mystery what killed him, death by shotgun_.
Cameras out in Cryo. Went to investigate, found the bay kinda creepy, its cold, best not stay too long in there. Something had corroded the lights in Cryo, what could function at those temps baffles. Found some of the Cryo Chambers empty, 4 of them. Took list to Bridge, running check, trying to find out why. Sent to investigate the other 5 Cryo Bays. Hate My Job Found a strange chamber in Cryo Bay 3 – Hard code lock on it. Broke code and open the door. Damn Its Cold
Some kind of bio-samples in room, 20 total, react to light and still moving even though room is -17 C. Have to get these locked down and looked at. Door began to close on us. Running in Cold room, not good idea
Saw something on med bay cameras… The body that we brought in, thought it was dead, broke out of the decontamination chamber…
Started hearing sounds, going to keep my gun with me… fuck the rules…
