Advise desperately needed regarding parasite
My ship mates and I were in hypersleep on a mining vessel owned by a major company.

We were prematurely woken by the ship computer, which picked up a distress signal from the planet LV-426.

A small recon crew went to check things out, but one of the crew had some sort of accident and it appears a parasitic organism has attached itself to his face.

The recon crew is in isolation in the airlock, per standard procedure. But with the captain as part of that crew, guess who's in charge - right, me!

Everyone is yelling at me and giving me dirty looks because I don't want to let them in until we're sure there's no danger to the rest of the crew, or the ship cat which I'm very fond of.

I hate having everyone mad at me, but I feel I should be following the rules. So what do I do?

6. I've heard of these creatures before. If you want to save that crew,
You need to bring them to Crawford, Texas immediately. If they're what I think they are, the bush crime family and co. are the only ones that can save that crew.

See, if those are the parasites commonly known as 'Brainsuckers' by exposing them to the BFEE and co. the parasites will quickly starve to death and the crew will be saved :-) You'll be a hero :bounce:

DU is not the place to solicit medical advice... :evilgrin:

I would suggest however that when it gets to this stage... run like the dickens.
