Description (Specifications)[edit]

The alien needs help... wounded, frightened, reluctant, the little birdlike creature can only slowly be coaxed into telling its story. Out there, in a research station in the middle of the sea, its sister and brother are being held for terrible experiments, vivisection, ultimately death!

The alien makes its plea: please, can't someone help? Can you?
