Ask the Hatchling

Well, I sure don’t know why you’re asking me!
But! Apparently it was deigned for use against Humans, and is actually pretty effective at stunning unenhanced ones! As for why Samus still carries it, apparently it has to do with weapons licenses and stuff; she’s not supposed to use her Power Suit in civilian areas, so out comes the stunner.

((Okay, evidently some old questions are being picked up by the alters.))

oh my goodness

RIGHT.

So a while back, right after the whole second Zebesian incident, my time-travelling Interstellnet feed broke. Very spectacularly. I’ve since got the necissary parts for repair (do you
know how hard it is to get scrapings from Dialga’s diamond? VERY HARD. And then you have to work with the Singers to get the temporal wassamagiggy they manufacture, make sure they get a model that works out of the water and uuugh…), but it’s going to take some time to recalibrate this thing.

As anyone knows, recalibrating a time-travelling feed machine is a tricky business. We might start getting feeds from alternate universes - close to the one I use for Ask the Hatchling, I’ve noticed for a small sample the Samus from the Pokemon World’s version of the Metroid games (and her Pikachu friend, Shinespark), one from Kirby’s universe (I am starting to suspect that in that world the Ing are in fact Dark Matter), I think I might have even spotted Dormin once… that’s just a small sample, there are others. Some of the feeds are pretty badly degraded, though.

Anyway, feel free to send questions, but I can’t guarntee they’ll get to mainline Samus anytime soon. We might even see them answered by some of the alternate universe Hatchlings. I think if you tag them, the feed might understand better and have a greater chance of reaching the right reality, but again, no promises while I’m fiddling with the silly thing.

Also, once I get her feed set back up, we’ll probably end up with a flood of back posts that I missed while the feed was down. I estimate recalibrating will take about a month or so, and if I play my wires right, we might even gain permanent feeds to a couple of the alters.

Back to work!

Cure’s already known. Several, actually, but the simplest is a drug called anonydrin. Manufacturing and distribution are tightly regulated - I’ve cleared the proper channels to get us both a dose, assuming your cooperation. Illegal magic anon use is currently considered as much if not more threatening than your organization.
I will send coordinates on a more private channel and meet you in a rental ship. If your human form is around 1.8-2.0 m, I’ll bring along some of my civilian clothing.

If I am able to change back before 2.0 m, then I will settle this in my own manner.

Metres are a measure of length, not time.
In any case, I see you’ve managed to return yourself to normal. I’m not quite as stupid as some of your cohorts seem to think, so I’ll be on my way while that drug takes effect.
If I get any intel on the magic anon who changed you, I’ll see about sending it over.

Rogue Rezbits are high on the list. The Power Suit locking up is an experience akin to a seizure, and not one I’d like to experience again soon.
X Parasite infection was one of the worst sicknesses I’ve lived through, even if I was unconscious for most of it. Had some pretty bizarre dreams while I was under, too.
And of course there were the Metroids, which should need no explanation.

I’ve been to too many to have an outstanding favourite. As a general rule, I enjoy planets with well-preserved or well-restored wilderness areas and ancient architecture the most. Ones that have had a Chozo presence are obvious planets of interest, as well.

They’re not a breed, they’re a criminal alliance comprised primarily of Urtraghusans, though members of other species can join if they prove savage enough.

Shaped like one of your cohorts. I suspect the same magic anon affected both of us.
I am loath to take orders or missions from someone of that nature. Propose temporary alliance to hunt them down. In return will share incoming dose of anonydrin, will not punch or otherwise bring harm to you while alliance lasts and no hostilities from your end occur.
If alliance is declined, I will cancel the anonydrin order, punch you, and arrest you along with the magic anon.

Are you joking? N…
I cannot return to the ship, or the crew will riot. What I need is a team of bounty hunters to track down this Magic Anon and force a cure out of him. As for you, you seem to fit that category well, but currently being a Zebesian, I am not sure how the rest of the team would react. But if you join and all goes well, I will be willing to pay you what is worth 5000 Galactic credits.
I’ll also need some Human clothing…

Sometimes, when I’m sleeping in peaceful Federation territory. I feel more comfortable in either my shipsuit or the Power Suit when in my ship, however, and of course I wear the Power Suit when I’m resting in hostile areas.
