Default You are adrift...

You are adrift through eternal endlessness. Carried by starsong, you have been drifting through the void, nothing for a companion but your own thoughts. Were you born here, or were you lost here? The memory of your origin has faded millenia ago.

Suddenly, something you cannot remember ever having experienced. A change in your eternal solitude; you feel a sensation. It is new and unique, and you cannot place what exactly it is. However, you remember a word, you know not from where; cold. You feel cold.

Suddenly, the sensation passes. You open your eyes. Did you have those before? You find yourself in a large room, surrounded by lights, bright metal and monitors. Around you are organisms, moving about. They seem to be of the same, or similar species, with two arms, two legs, a head and a red uniform. To your surprise, you find that you are one of the same beings, as you are now in possession of a body that you are sure is not your own.

You sit in the center of the room, in a large chair. If you concentrate, you can recall the memories of your current body. You think you are in command of this ship, though you are not entirely sure. At the very least, you are in command of this bridge at the moment. What do you do?

Your memory informs you that you are a human female, in your late thirties. For your species, you possess no significant divergences, aside from the some scarring on your left cheek. Your hair is black, your eyes are green, your skin is brownish, you are 1.6 meters (5.2 foot) tall and weigh about 50 kilos (110 pounds). You wear a red uniform like your compatriots, though there are white stripes that indicate your commanding rank.

I pinch myself to wake up and realize that Uhura will never command the Enterprise.

Pinching yourself feels odd. Your body knows what pain is, but you don't remember ever feeling it.

You do not think your name is Uhura, nor do you think your ship is called the enterprise.

You remember enough to excuse yourself as you leave the bridge. Luckily, there is a map of the ship in the elevator, and you manage to get to the medical bay without attracting too much attention. Stumbling in, you start screaming loudly and incoherently. The doctor looks on in shock for a brief second, before quickly pressing a button and rushing over to you. She pulls forth some sort of odd device.

Explain you may have been inhabited by an amorphous, extratemporal being beyond her comprehension.

You explain your situation to the doctor. She responds by pushing the device against you. You feel a small needle penetrate your skin. Your body loses consciousness. You do not. Two guards rush into the room, grabbing your body and pulling it towards an alcove. In a panic, you jump.

You are now the doctor.

Inquire the board computer when evolution deemed it necessary to remove the torso from the human physiology.

Experiment with your powers. Can your consciousness take control of multiple people at once? The entire ship?

I concentrate on establishing a vocabulary, attempting to identify colors, objects, and names.

Engage FTL jump for the ship straight into the middle of the nearest major population center.

Now in possession of the good Doctor, I head out of my office to the nearest person and jump to them.

You try to reach out with your mind towards another person while maintaining your hold on the doctor, but feel your grasp on the doctor's body slipping. It seems you are limited to a single mind, for now.

Afterwards, you try to just jump to another person, a passing ensign. However, something feels off about this jump. Instead of smoothly gliding into the other person's mind like you did before, you feel a sudden surge of pain and find yourself still in the doctor's body. Maybe you need some time to regather your strength? Or maybe it only works under stress?

The ensign gives you a really weird look as soft, maniacal laughter escapes from you.

You take a walk around deck 14, trying to get a good base for your vocabulary by concentrating on whatever you are seeing

You don't have any. As a doctor, it seems like you don't have access to this sort of weaponry.

You're a doctor. You have no idea how to work the FTL drive.

Utilize your host's vocal ensemble to articulate as clearly as their feeble mortal and organically derived body can express the situation your perceive yourself to be in, as well as the distress and confusion it is causing you.

Grab a scapel and hid it on yourself, try to gain access to the captain of the ship using some sort of medical excuse.

Pretend to have amnesia and ask the Crew important details about yourself, such as name, age, etc.


This reminds me of some of those TOS/TNG episodes in which someone gets possessed by some weird alien entity.
