Your ship has been on patrol near the rift for a while now and getting nothing but sensor echoes in response when suddenly, you experience a clutching at the base of your skull (or wherever your consciousness interfaces with your body). You are not in control of your body any more. Instead, you find yourself trapped as part of a hive mind controlling a group of bots. You can see your former ship and body sailing away and you can sense your former crewmates have been similarly affected.
At least half of the crew are restored to their bodies.
All of the crew are restored to their bodies.
