The Soovi Harmonious Collective, a spacenation of xenophilic mammalians, has announced a daring plan to try and rescue a space amoeba which has become stranded on the arid world of Ghulrak's Fortress.

The massive amoeba is believed to have entered the Ghulrak's sphere of influence to warp out of the Ghulrak System with gravity assist. It appears as just as the amoeba was about to complete warp, it lost momentum and entered the atmosphere of the planet, crash landing. Local science station Schluumash VI has confirmed that the amoeba is still alive and, relatively speaking, in good condition but unable to leave the planet.

The incident has been classified as a Level 2 anomaly. A rescue operation will be difficult but not impossible according to Dischgu Shting, head spokesman of the Soovi Institute of Statecraft, Genetics, Xenology and Military Sciences (S.I.S.G.X.M.S).

“The stranded amoeba is simply too massive to make it back to orbit. While they appear graceful in the vacuum of space, they are not able to move very well within a pressurized environment. But fear not, the S.I.S.G.X.M.S. is already devising a plan to rescue it. We have no clue what said plan is going to be, but I am confident our capable scientists will figure something out. Heck, if nothing else works we could always nuke it back to orbit and wait for it to regenerate... Hold on, I’m gonna write that one down.”

At press time, several corvettes from the nearby Gu’thral Stellar Conglomerate were seen jumping towards Soovak. Space amoeba are considered a delicacy in Gu’thrali culture.
