Description: GRP-026 is an extraterrestrial race originating from the planet Poul c in the quadrants of 05 07 28.1588916680 and +16 52 03.795044106. GRP-026-1 is considered a separate entity from standard instances with widely divergent behavior patterns and containment procedures.

Base instances of GRP-026 are characterized as a featureless flesh-like mass measuring only 0.75 meters. 99% of their nutrients appear to be collected from Photosynthesis. Their skin is semi-permeable, allowing for oxygen to be absorbed directly through the skin. Their bodies are composed of 90% water allowing lower nutrient upkeep to maintain their mass. They possess a proboscis used both to gather water as well as collect genetic material from desired species.

GRP-026 has no ‘true’ form, preferring to copy the physical appearance of whatever apex predator they can harvest. The most common form of this species is not their ‘true’ appearance, which also appears to be a copy of native fauna of Poul c known as Aqua trunci. GRP-026’s ability inevitably allows it to usurp whatever apex predator currently inhabits any given ecosystem. However, there is no evidence it has ever copied sapient life before the creation of GRP-026-1 instances.

GRP-026-1 is an imitation of a deceased Galactic Ranger named Randal C. Sinclair, known commonly to his peers as “Cosmic Randy.” Instances of GRP-026-1 are the attempts of GRP-026 to mimic the likeness of Randal Sinclair. While many are extremely difficult to distinguish from the original Galactic Ranger, many tend to display exaggerated features or lacking thereof.

Notable examples of deviations include:

  • Lack of gaps between teeth
  • Enlarged Jawbone
  • Disproportionate eye size
  • Lack of Eyebrow Follicles
  • Absence of Skin Pores

However, there is no memetic deviation between the original Randal Sinclair and GRP-026-1 instances. It is no exaggeration to state that GRP-026-1 instances wholeheartedly believe to be the original Randal Sinclair.

GRP-026-2 is a legion of identical Hopkin Aliens1. The original, nicknamed ‘Chuck’ by Randall Sinclair, was a Xeno pilot kidnapped from a Hopkin Alien hydroponics lab during an impromptu provision raid. ‘Chuck’ died along with Randall Sinclair during their crash landing on Poul c.


Discovery

He was reported missing while exploring the Poul System at Standard Galactic Time (SGT) 394,200. The exact cause of death is unknown. However, instances of GRP-026-1 began appearing in stations at (SGT) 411,720. The GRPC was notified of GRP-026-1’s presence when twenty ships docked into Hilo Station, USA, using the credentials assigned to Randal Sinclair. This would not have gained GRPC attention had it not been for seven instances claiming to be GRPC Rangers.

All GRP-026-1 instances were detained by local station security, assuming that Randal’s credentials had been leaked. After discovering all the detainees were identical, station security notified a squadron of GRPC Rangers who were doing a routine sweep of the region. All seven instances were then contained and transported to Station-038. Each instance was subsequently interrogated and experimented on, and it was soon discovered their extra-terrestrial origin.

GRPC Ranger Randal Sinclair's Last Message

Interview Log

Shortly after this transmission at (SGT) 411,918, a fleet of eight GRP-026-2’s raided Station-038 knocking out long-range Anti Ship guns in a single unseen strike. With all GRP-026-2’s being memetic clones, their attack patterns and coordinated strikes made it impossible to break any formation or spot gaps in their defense. At (SGT) 411,922, six Randal Sinclair copies broke containment, considering six Jupiter-3’s from the station’s hangar bay, using them to engage the Aliens. At (SGT) 411,925, a squadron of GRP-026-2’s gets defeated with six casualties on their side and three casualties on the GRP-026-1 side.


Containment:

All remaining instances of GRP-026 must be contained on Poul c. A permanent GRPC presence in the Poul system to intercept any attempt to land on the planet.

Instances of GRP-026-1 are permitted to continue employment under the GRPC; they are, however, forbidden from docking at Hollywood Station as a respected request from the Sinclair family as they mourn. All GRPC Rangers are to maintain the ruse that individual GRP-026-1s are the genuine Randal Sinclair.
