NEW YORK, EARTH – Infomatrix users once again submitted theories about a message received from the exploration vessel Pinnacle. This time, the conjecture focused on what new information might be hidden within the quantum-encrypted words “They are coming.”

The prevailing opinion seems to be that the message contains details of a nightmare playing out aboard the Pinnacle, perhaps horribly violent, as the crew made first contact with an alien race.

Another curious theory gaining prominence, primarily in Texas, is that the entire “They are coming” crisis is manufactured by the Solar Consortium government to scare people into “patriotic” collaboration.
