Prompt Day #303: Reverse the roles in an alien autopsy.
End of the Abduction
Subject: Earthling, Female, Approximately 35 rotations in age
Cause of Death: Attempted Cross-Species Insemination/impregnation.
External Examination: The body is that of a well-nourished earthling female. The body is 43 Tornets in length and weighs 71 Gulix units. It is cool and firm to the touch. The cranium of the body is small with a large amount of keratin fibers. The color of these fibers does not seem to be natural. There are similar but shorter keratin fibers above the orbits—of which there are only two and on further exam appear to be frontal direction view only. There appears to be a respiratory organ protruding from the facial cavity and probing it with my tenticular sensory appendage, it appears to connect to the larger orifice below it and further traverses into the thorax where it enters internal gill sacs.
On each side of the cranial organ, there are small tunnels which travel deep into the cavity. The TSA probing reveals a firm membrane of unknown function. Rupturing the membrane does not give access to central core processing organ. Opening the cranial cavity’s ossified helmet, the processing unit is a gelatinous vermiform organ with no obvious segmentation into motor, sensory, or possible extrasensory functions. There are also no spaces in the ossified helmet for inter-organism passage of thought, emotions, or sensations.
The thorax is also supported by an ossified cage-like structure. A note on the skin. The skin is thick and firm even in life. It does not easily meld allowing entrance by any tenticular appendages. It is smooth. Opening the thorax, the air sacs are enlarged and filling this space. To the sinistra side of the space is the circulating organ for the iron-based oxygen transporting fluid. This organ is thickened and compartmentalized and is in intimate contact with the air sacs. This oxygen regulating system appears to be a closed arrangement rather than fluids loose and awash over the internal structures. This system may, however, be used for inter-organism thought passage. We will need to study this further with the next specimen.
The abdominal cavity is the most interesting but also the most damaged secondary to the unsuccessful interspecies breeding attempt. It is most intriguing that this is the area designated to carry young yet it is the least protected. The skin is broken in several areas where the tenticular copulation organ was passed through it in attempts to make a connection with this species’ copulatory receiver. Inside there are several loops of vermiform organs that we believed initially to be internal tenticular appendages but on further inspection and after multiple direct inseminations, there was never an appropriate tenticular response. There was also worsening of the subject’s condition and now on further inspection, it appears that these vermiform ropes are necrotic, bruised and filled with organic detritus.
Another organ within the abdominal cavity that was probed with the copulation organ through an orifice hidden within folds between the bony locomotion appendages. This organ did take in the organ and accepted the seminal portion of the larvae which came into contact with the hosts amoeba-like proto-larvae and engulfed it. The resulting organism however utilized the host’s organ for nourishment and its tenticular appendages ended in sharp keratinized spikes which did further damage to the host’s body, tearing into and out of multiple tissues. Causing loss of the oxygen transport fluid and proper functioning of multiple organs including the copulatory receiver.
This organism has only two locomotor appendages which are firm and can only be manipulated in one direction. At the bottom of these bony tentacles are flattened oval discs with vestigial tentacles growing off the ends of each. Ten in total, five per disc. There are also two sensory appendages attached to the thorax. They also end in disc like organs with vestigial tentacles.
This species is strange. Most of its protective body armor is internal and organic. Yet most damage seems to occur from external forces. On observations by our infiltrators, it seems that their larvae are born live and as a small version of the adult form. Their larvae also have soft, pliable yet ossified infrastructures.
There will need to be further investigations and experimentations, specifically in regards to our inter-species breeding program. The next specimen will be implanted with an embryo that was created in vitro and genetically modified to avoid any sharp/claw like appendages. This will then be implanted into the copulation receiver rather than the abdominal cavity/vermiform organs.
This subject is now released for processing into protein cubes for feeding future subjects.
