Lost Amoeba

The [science ship name] has located the source of the movement in the upper atmosphere of [gas giant name]. Surprisingly, there was no ship hidden in the clouds, but rather a young Space Amoeba, its mother nowhere to be seen.

There is no way of knowing how this juvenile was separated from its mother or others of its kind, but one thing is certain: it appears to have imprinted on the [science ship name]. As the crew completed their survey of [gas giant name], they found that the Amoeba was following them. It has proven difficult to shake, and [science ship scientist] has taken quite a shine to the youngster's determination.

Our Science Officer suggests allowing the juvenile to follow the vessel, certain we may learn more about Space Amoebas in the process.

Lost Juvenile Amoeba

Researchers report that the lost Amoeba juvenile found near [gas giant name] is no longer following our science fleet. After doing so for the past several weeks, the juvenile reportedly entered a hyperlane via some biological hyperdrive capacity. Perhaps it recognized the terrain, or sensed others of its kind. Or perhaps it simply tired of chasing after our ship.

Though our ships refrained from interacting with the juvenile as instructed, passive scans have led to some revelations regarding the creature's physiology.

The Amoeba juvenile that joined our fleet some time ago appears to have reached full maturity. Now an impressive adult, she is no less loyal to the ships that gave her a new home when she was stranded on [gas giant name].

Her time spent with the fleet appears to have encouraged adaptive behaviors not typically found in wild Space Amoebas, making her a more formidable presence on the battlefield than others of her kind. Across [empire name], her image has become something of a mascot for the [empire adjective] spirit.

Only one question remains: what should we name her?

Exciting news from our fleet admirals is being broadcasted over [capital name]. Our adopted Space Amoeba, [lost amoeba name], has just reached an impressive one hundred years of age.

Though a grizzled centenarian, it appears age has proven no impediment to our amoeboid ally. In fact, our fleets report [lost amoeba name]'s presence on the battlefield has only grown more formidable over time. [lost amoeba name] has become a force even the best-equipped battleship would have trouble contending with. Seeing her billowing flagella enter a system never fails to lift the [main species adjective] spirit.

Pending our lack of initiative in securing the Amoeba juvenile for dissection, it appears to have escaped. Sensors report the juvenile engaged some kind of biological hyperdrive and disappeared off the grid, just hours ago.

News of the death of [lost amoeba name] has rippled through the [empire name], though none have been as affected as Science Officer [science ship scientist]. It was [he or she] who first discovered the Space Amoeba as a lost and helpless juvenile, and watched the creature grow to full maturity under [his or her] own gentle guidance.

Now, without [lost amoeba name]'s silent companionship, Officer [science ship scientist] may never be the same again.
