The others seem to know enough to keep their distance from Alex, and
she's able to get within sight of Ted.

And she's greeted by quite a scene. There are two Teds, one of them as
a cybernetic arm and a large broadsword with glowing runes. The other
Ted looks like the Ted Alex knows. There is a little boy standing
behind the normal-looking Ted, and the corpse of another little boy
that looks identical to the standing boy. None of them have seen her

As this is going on, the ship finally contacts Alex through a
crackling transmission; "Vesper, Ted, Alex, Louissa, does anybody
read? What is your situation. We're monitoring the nexus opening into
a rift. Can you confirm?"
