Benjamin dropped in his seat, placing his head between his hands and sighing audibly “You know when I woke up this mornin’ I dinnae expect tah be radiating a fellow officer to calm down his spine buddy” he cleared his throat and his accent went softer once more “I’m not certain, I wasn’t expecting such a drastic reaction from our friend there. I would like to take some samples of your internal organs for testing, I’m curious how the creature changed your body to survive radiation levels of this magnitude. I had several more stress tests planned but I agree that we should shelve them for now.”

“Welcome to the Athena, I honestly didn’t expect you would’ve upset me to the point I needed it. ” Liam countered, holding off the sarcasm in his mind.

It wasn’t Grey’s fault. It was their failure to factor in the creature’s independent reaction and now they learned from it. Mainly to keep radiation on hand for future issues.

“It might be a good idea to keep the radiation ready for future irritations. There’s still a lot of knowledge we haven’t discovered. Especially when it comes to its behavior.”

He took a breath then continued.

“We’ve been focusing on its anatomy in hopes to remove it, but with little success. Surgery, as I’m sure you’re aware, is going to both cripple and kill me. The radiation the creature absorbs both fuels and makes other forms of removal difficult.”

Liam thought for a moment and suggested something. “I suggest keeping the radiation on when you take the samples. The creature does have a healing factor so you’ll have to be quick. The radiation will likely keep it calm.”

Ben nodded “Yes quite so.” He grabbed his medical pack and looked into it “Uhm question, do we have any idea of its intelligence?” He asked as a thought suddenly occurred “I mean it’s not common but neither is it impossilbe that a creature like that possesses beyond rudimentary intelligence.”

Liam thought for a moment. It was a good question and one they had not touched on in any real depth. In fact, the main focus of their research was getting the creature out rather than co-existing with it. What they learned in regards to that area were mostly due to accidents rather than controlled experiments.

“I am not honestly sure,” Liam began.

“As far as I can recall, it only took over when it was starving. The scans of its brain didn’t suggest any activity beyond rudimentary when it was content. Mostly the creature seems to just exist in my body until it is starving. Then it influences my mind.”

Liam decided to clarify it so Grey didn’t get the wrong assumption.

“I’m still aware of what I’m doing, but it’s hazy and unclear. Like I’ve been drugged and to stop it, I have this desire to seek out radiation sources. That’s the best I can describe it to be like.”

OOC: Bump, just to put on the board again.

“I see, so it’s likely a creature run purely on instinct, not reason. Uncommon but not unheard of.” Benjamin mused “I suggest we wait to take any samples until we’re in Sickbay. Right now I have a few test ideas, an examination of the Creatures sensory abilities, pain measurements or threshold tests. What do you like?” He asked.
