OOC: No, you don't know what's going on with Oz, unless he tells you.

The orb is continuing to try to absorb energy, and they see frost
spreading over the hall near it, and it seems to be enough to start
allowing it to wiggle around a little bit, and everyone feels the
faint tug of its weird attractive power. The steel in the hull is
beginning to moan.

And then suddenly the orb flashes. Everyone feels the temperature in
the immediate drop thirty degrees. Everyone is blown back by a force
as repulsive as the attractive force, and ejected from the orb are
three armored figures appear. The three figures appear to be armored
in what looks like some weird organic body armor [OOC: see attached].
All of them are armed only with staves that look to be made of the
same material, but immediately open fire. Some sort of greenish
lightning flies out of them, striking a shipping container and blowing
a large hole in it. They are moving quickly to flank the orb.
