This object was found orbiting their home planet. Research began almost immediately. Codenamed the “Diamond Engine”, they quickly found out that the glassy surface contained some sort of biomechanical creature lying dormant inside the protective shell.

One day, the Diamond Engine started emitting a slow and enticing chant. The creature inside the shell finally came back to life thanks to the continuous experiments carried by the researchers!
