This was the day we made contact with the creatures now known as Veix. They are slender tubularians living on the surface of crystal lakes of their home planet Zonn. Their undeniable intelligence is so distant from ours we can only communicate in symbols.
This photograph is from a visit to the group living closest to our research station. It shows Abbott and Costello, the two Veix apparently designated by their kin to make contact with us.
