The lights were dim, the air was stale, and the pallor of death was everywhere. Bodies were slumped over consoles and sprawled across the deck, screaming silently at the horrible fate that had overtaken them and ripped their minds from them.
Jo was stepping gingerly between the victims. "It's what I was trying to warn the Captain about on the bridge," she said. "This was a textbook Jelly Brain attack, but he wouldn't listen."
"Over here!" called Doctor Sam Beckett.
Commander Carter, Lieutenant Schmidt, and Lieutenant M'Rowan stepped around the nav console on the small bridge of the Nkiru to where Beckett was crouching and waving her cybernetic hand with its built-in tricorder functions over one of the comatose bodies.
"This one is still alive," said Beckett, addressing Carter. "It's just like you expected. Mental attack. But for some reason, his neural energy wasn't completely drained."
Carter stood aside to let Jo kneel beside Beckett. Jo lifted the limp, dark-skinned Tellarite to a reclining position and laid his big hairy head on her leg while Beckett continued to minister to him.

The Tellarite is P6James wearing a jacket and jeans with homemade texture and bump maps. His head is a screencap from TOS "Journey to Babel", tinted and lit using the built-in PSP10 Illumination effects. The consoles are from the "Science Fiction Construction Set" from Daz. Rendered in Poser 6. No postwork aside from the head.
