::It all looked so familiar. He recognized the names--the faces--of the people he passed by. O'Connell, Pugh, Salinas, Rowland. They all returned a nod as if it were just another day.::

::He had to warn them.::

Ellis: =/\= Ellis to Captain Washington. =/\=

::Captain Washington? Wait, that wasn't right. He wasn't a captain yet. He'd just been a lieutenant.::

Washington: =/\= Yes, what is it, Claire? =/\=

::His friend's voice sang through the com. He'd forgotten how delicate it sounded, almost hollow.::

Ellis:  =/\= I've gotten some results on this new biogenic weapon the Dominion has developed.  I thought you might want to come take a look. =/\=

Washington: =/\= Understood, I'm on my way. =/\=

::He began heading to the bridge, but as soon as he approached the turbolift, the doors opened, revealing deck 1.::

::He didn't seem to care about that as he walked up towards Claire, huddled over one of her displays.::

::She turned around when she saw him. The first thing he noticed were her eyes, a brilliant green.::

Washington: oO But Claire's are brown. Oo

::Or they had been. Before she died.::

::What's going on?::

Ellis: I thought you might want to take a look at this.

::She called up display, showing what almost looked like tiny spiders with flat legs.::

Ellis: They’re mutating.

Washington: What are they?

Ellis: RESPONSE

Washington: I don't understand…

Ellis: RESPONSE

::He looked back at her, taking a step back.::

Washington: This isn't how it was. This isn't right. What's going on?

Ellis: RESPONSE

::The bridge around them seemed to be getting darker, the background fading away until it was only him and the woman in front of him.::

Washington: You're not Claire…

::Alora?::

Washington: Alora…

::He repeated the name softly that came to him.::

DeVeau or Ellis?: RESPONSE

TAG! TBC…
