So.... Just as we're standing there arguing about who's going to be stupid enough to open this thing, the issue was settled for us. There was a sudden hissing sound, and before any of us could react, the hatch opened on its own and an alien body just kind of plopped out onto the ground.

As near as any of us could tell, the creature looked like it had bled to death. There appeared to be blood--assuming that's what it was--oozing from its eyes and nose. As to the body's overall appearance, well, its skin was blotchy and cracked. Without having a healthy live version to compare it to we couldn't say for sure, but this particular Martian looked sick as hell.

Someone shined a flashlight in through the open hatch. There appeared to be two more dead creatures inside.
