Films: Europa Report (2013)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Tundra/Ocean

Height/Weight: Unknown.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: We've already tried to see if planets like Mars have any intelligent life, and for the most part, we've been disappointed. But there's one place that could very much still hold hope for us not being alone in the universe. Perhaps on one of Jupiter's moons. Or rather, within it.

History: The crew of the Europa One have one goat. That being, find life on the Jupiterian moon of Europa. Alas, because of some very short-sighted decision-making, the whole mission goes up in smoke, and many are killed as it goes on. Though part of it is due to incomitance, and the fact that whatever lives in the Europan frozen seas is not happy to have intruders...

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: By the time any video footage is sent back to Earth, the entire crew is dead, killed by either the elements or the creature that's been attacking them. However, the very last shot, a clear image of the cephalopod-like being, is proof to the world that their sacrifice was not in vain, and the mission is declared a success. Well, if you can call the deaths of an entire crew a success, but then again, it's science.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Unknown.

Scariness Factor: 4-This bioluminescent thing is an enigma, perhaps the most mysterious of sea creatures to be in a monster role. Why did it attack the crew? Is it a carnivore? Is it even all that intelligent? We may never know. Either way, it tore through these people like nothing, and the next expedition had better come with smarter people and slightly more defenses.

Trivia: -Europa has been the subject of speculation when it comes to extraterrestrial life, considering how everything below its icy surface is fresh water. But as far as modern science is concerned, the most we could hope for is microscopic life. But so far, the evidence for any life is nil.

-The alien seen here has a head rather reminiscent of a deep-sea comb jellyfish. While these jellies have no long tentacles, they will still engulf whatever is smaller than them, and their bioluminescence is a lot more colorful.
