1: Sedjet sits at a table as Eric carries over two covered trays. We see this scene from the point of view of one of the sample’s tubes, its “face” reflected in the glass.
Eric: Fried crickets for you… and something edible for me.
Sedjet: Hmph! And you call yourself an Egyptian.
So, I received some wonderful mail this afternoon. Super top secret stuff.
Eric: Oh! Results from the particle emissions lab down in Sudan?

2: Papers and photos are spread out across the table.
Sedjet: Mmmmhm. A lot of the tests didn’t really come up with anything exciting. A few of them did some pretty heavy damage. Check out the Shankar Radiation test, though.

3: A photograph of the idol sample shows it heavily mutated from its normal shape, this new sample shows bizarre tube-like growths, making it look almost coral with brain-like structures.
Eric (off-screen), reading: “Subject became rigid and inert after sudden mutations. Molecular scanning shows the affected areas to be of a completely different biological structure when compared to original sample.”
Genetic makeup varies greatly from sample to sample, implying sudden, randomized mutations.”

4: Eric is looking down at the papers, more excited than usual.
Eric: What do you think it means?
Sedjet (off-screen): Well, we shouldn’t speculate at this stage…
Eric: But we’re going to. Shankar Radiation doesn’t normally have any affect on living tissue, it’s supposed to just be a rare quantum state of energy.
So why would that make it mutate?

5: Sedjet is smiling.
Sedjet: Maybe we’re thinking about EA-055 all wrong. Shankar Radiation supposedly doesn’t occur naturally. What if this thing is designed to react to it?
Eric (off-screen): Designed?
Sedjet: Maybe those “randomized mutations” can be controlled.
What if this thing is a weapon?
