Capt. Mark Markary: One entire crew lost; two of our own crew gone. Bert dead, Eldon disappeared. And this unknown enemy keeps getting closer! Dr. Karan: The enemy is also becoming visible. Capt. Mark Markary: What do you mean by that? Dr. Karan: Well, you saw something. Something not quite identifiable out of the corner of your eye. Capt. Mark Markary: Ah, yes. As if it were composed of little globes of light, something fleeting, nothing definite. And the minute I looked at the things directly, they were gone.
