The strange Alien on the screens turned out to be even stranger than any of the survivors could of Imagined, the alien turned out not be be a flesh and blood alien but an ancient A.I the last of a set that guarded the ship for the A.I. claims to be millions of cycles. The A.I.’s name when transaltes to “Michael custos et lumen bastion furoris caeli”, or in english Michael the guardian of light and bastion of the fury of heaven. Which Henery shortened to Michael.
