Saamerin'tlakadrt, otherwise known as 'Sam', is a member of a unique alien species. Each member of their species is born as a pair of entities, one male and one female. At any given time one member of the pair is the “primary”, with the other being the “secondary”.
Early on in life, Sam did not feel comfortable within the society of their own people, and so when the opportunity arose to leave, they jumped at the chance, starting their career with Void Industries as a scout, as having two pairs of eyes on the ground can definitely be more efficient than one.
After a few missions carried out for their new employer, Sam soon found themselves being given the honour of participating in a real, important, exploration mission. Along with a ragtag crew of other misfits, including the man who had recruited Sam in the first place, they were too explore the 'Vanishing Zone', a mysterious section of space where people tended to disappear. Sam was quite excited by this opportunity to prove themselves to Void Industries. That is, until, their first foray into the Lexington 9 station.
It started off quite innocent. A simple infiltration into a seemingly abandoned station, populated only by maintenance robots shaped like cats. Nothing Sam was entirely unfamiliar with. It wasn't until they had a blaster pointed at the back of their head that they began to really worry.
The owner of the blaster asked Sam to leave the station or there would be consequences. Sam and their companions bravely ignored this warning and continued onward, only to be immediately set upon by the feline maintenance robots. The robots were quickly dispatched however, allowing the team to move forward.
Soon they found the elevators which would take them up to the command deck. Sam spotted some canine feet standing atop one of the elevators, but inadvertently alerted the owner of said feet to this by announcing the discovery to their companions. Undeterred by this potential threat, the crew hopped onto one of the elevators and set it off. Not long after, the elevator shafts that were not in use exploded, which caused quite a bit of excitement for everyone. However since there was no other way to go but forward, the team just kept on going.
On the command deck Sam and their friends found quite a few strangely mutated humans, all of which attacked them.
