They Read Our Minds
By D.K. Spencer
Gliding out of the intergalactic worm-way, we encounter six alien ships. We are being hailed, but not through the ship’s com.
They’re speaking directly through mind manipulation. Simultaneously they’re asking the same questions to each of our four hundred crewmen. Involuntarily we respond.
Identifying themselves, the Thorlaks demand we power down all weapons. As captain, I refuse, ordering a full weapons assault on the six alien ships. Now I see we have decimated our own fleet following us through the wormhole.
The Thorlak’s questions: Are you hostile? What weapons do you have? Are there others?
Our crew had answered irresistibly.
