Order Description

:  Infect enemies, dealing 50% damage/sec. Bounces to other enemies on death.

Shipping Method

:  Biological/Live Animal

Order Details

:  Extremely interesting species found on OMEGA-19. Resembles a worm, snake, or limbless lizard. Seems to exude poison from its glands, so much that the 'worm' can't even contain it in its mouth.

May be a strain of stomach parasites found on other planets, but obviously much larger
and deadlier. I hope you find some interesting knowledge from this species; it killed 16 of
our workers alone.
It also seemed to give offspring every time, but we only found 13. Please respond
