The blast hits the semi-visible entity [Damage:36MD/half damage].  While
it does seem to slow it down a little, it is still very much there.

Alex's senses reach out to the thing, her magnified telepathy contacting
a mind.  It is a tortured, insane, only somewhat sentient mind.  Maddeningly
confusing images barrage Alex; warped like a hall of mirrors turned upside
down.  Maybe a vaguely humanoid figure laughing... the sound of rushing
water... intense agony... a prickly sensation like one's hand falling asleep
save over the whole body... and then confusion... anger... fear...  And
always the laughter... the terrible laughter...

Then a spoken name... "Arsandel... Arsendel... Murderer... torturer...
criminal... Arsendel..."

Alex can sense nothing else from the entity.

OOC: I'm assuming that Lyle, Owen and Louissa arrive.  Unless Koba
says otherwise, he's still in the engine room.
