It began with the solicitation for the best of our kind: our most brilliant, artistic, and erudite; our strongest and bravest; and, our wisdom-carriers.
It was not until we were briefed that we learned of the highly classified mission we would be embarking upon; a mission that would forever change the blueprint of our lives.
This was not a time for altruism to reign where women and children were considered first, nor a time to honor our life givers to whom we owed our existence. No, logic governed, in spite of the mordant chill that overtook, impressing its distaste of the abandonment of a planet that believed in our return.
When Mother Ship departed in search of a celestial body on which to colonize, the desertion of a planet left with Life Beings uninformed - an act that guaranteed or species' survival - somehow felt inherently evil. And, I fear, this dishonorable act will one day become our most detestable legacy.
In the pursuit to save ourselves, we have instead, destroyed ourselves. And as we head farther away from Mother Planet, we hear the distant cries of loved ones, their anguish and supplication piercing our ears. Or, is that the sound of our own voices silently screaming their guilt instead?

Today, we came upon a tiny planet third from its Sun. A watery world teeming with life. We have stationed ourselves in its exosphere, undetected.

Physiognomy of species reveals intellectual and physical embryonic stage. However, viable life carriers have proven successful as vessels for our future Life Beings. I have been chosen to be the guardian of Mother All.
