The Mariposan land-squid is a sentient viviparous species indigenous to Ranelka II which was rendered almost extinct by a retrovirus that made them lose their ability to gestate their younglings. Efforts to breed the land-squid in a lab proved largely unsuccessful until researchers discovered that the human pregnancy process provides an ideal environment for the gestation of the squid-"fetus". As every specimen of this rare genus is incredibly valuable, their survival is of utmost importance to this project. Test subjects with a specific genetic factor that makes them especially suitable for this breeding program were selected to serve as incubators.
Test subject I-6171 was assigned to the project two weeks ago. Since then she exhibited a rapid but seemingly harmless gestation which is now nearing completion with a growth of the land-squid to almost 60cm. This morning the subject exhibited cardiovascular complications and was moved to an examination room. On arrival her condition started to deteriorate and she went into cardiac arrest. Medical staff initiates both cpr and emergency c-section protocols to save both lifes.>> Next scene >>
