The aliens are already among us, in a form we refuse to see.
“The aliens’ physiology is unlike that of any other race we have encountered. Your carapace will have to be softened; your mid-limbs absorbed into your thorax; your abdomen shrunk to almost nothing… However, the one part that the aliens rarely cover is also the hardest part for us to alter. I am speaking, of course, of your eyes.”
