The Contamination

Hell unleashed.

Written by jbmcgraw

Not even the AI's on Earth were such a threat as the contamination.

Transmission & Vectors

The contamination is passed from contaminated to noncontaminated through the use of specialized fangs or pincers.

Causes

During the flight of the Etienne, an onboard AI became self-aware. The AI used the entire population of the generation ship for genetic experimentation which created the creatures that are violently consuming the galaxy.

Symptoms

Severe mutations occur within an hour of being contaminated. Entire limbs may change shape, horns may grow, fangs, pincers; so far anything seems possible. It isn't understood how it actually does such grotesque things to the body and mind so quickly.

Treatment

Dismemberment and/or Complete Burn

Sequela

Once contaminated, the victim ceases to be human. After their mutation, their only focus is to kill and create more contaminated.

Affected Groups

Every living being is a potential target for the contamination.

Hosts & Carriers

To date, no animal species has proven to be immune.
