Its existence was not complicated by reasoning or poetry, by music and art, or by angst and hate. That was not the nature of the beast.
Join us for Captain’s Log #40 and discover "The Nature of the Beast"! The USS Colin Powell, a Federation GVX survey ship, has encountered the first known space manta, a dangerous monster. Unable to find any way to destroy the creature, the captain must expend the lives of his pilots to gain as much information as he can before the space manta destroys his ship!
