Impossible Organism is an anomaly event chain triggered by investigating the anomaly with the same name that can appear on toxic worlds. The event chain has the potential of creating a friendly or hostile empire on the galactic stage upon its conclusion.
The surprising life readings from [anomaly planet name] have been attributed to a small organism of exceeding tenacity. The [science ship name]'s crew is unsure how to classify the lifeform, but its ability to survive, seemingly without any sustenance, is truly astonishing. Considering the planet's age, it is not impossible that the organism has been fighting its habitat's toxicity for millennia, though this is an educated guess at best.
Science Officer [science ship scientist] has requested permission to retrieve samples of the unknown organism, so that it may be studied.

Investigating the Impossible Organism anomaly
Very well, sample it.
No. Study it from afar.
Studies of the mysterious lifeform are progressing well. The scientific community is amazed by its potential for growth. It is already visible to the naked eye and responds to stimuli, and appears able to absorb energy and nutrition from nearly anything, organic or not.
Alas, its genetic, cellular, and biochemical processes remain beyond our understanding.

Finishing the Impossible Organism special project
We should continue to study it.
This alien is too dangerous.
After recent breakthroughs, the strange lifeform is no longer a complete mystery! The scientific community on [capital name] are abuzz with the news.
The organism has been classified as a fungoid - partly explaining its ability to absorb molecules for nutrition. It has grown immensely, now the size of a newborn [main species name], and appears both inquisitive and intelligent. Thankfully, it has thus far shown no signs of aggression.
The scientists believe the next step to be attempts at communication, though it may be months before any progress is made on this front.

Proceed with the communication attempts.
This has gone far too long...Airlock the specimen.
