After detailed analysis of the food pods found within captured UFOs we found out much more about the alien diet. We had all expected in our minds the aliens, though savage, to have a fairly normal (by earth standards) diet, but the truth was more disturbing then we had ever thought.
"Whoa! The aliens have steak too?! Cool!?" ~Rookie X-corp scientist on the human meat, promptly setting off projectile vomiting in the room.
From studying the food pods on the alien ships, we found out something very surprising. In some of the pods were broken down human flesh mixed with an enzyme that makes it more easily digestible, in an almost liquid form. In another were slabs of precooked human meat, in a form not unlike steak, [a finding backed up by the trace amounts of human flesh found in the bloodstream of certain aliens]. We also found cow organs in some pods. Our scientists theorize that the aliens mutilate the cows for specific tasty morsels, and leave the rest to rot, not unlike elephant poachers taking the ivory tusks and leaving the rest of the elephant to decompose. Another theory suggests that the aliens are doing this research on the cow's 3 stomach digestive tract in an attempt to find a way to digest tough plant foods, which in the long run it would make the aliens less dependent on humans for food on earth, and would enable them to eat the plentiful grasses and various grains found all over the earth.
[Different aliens all get the food through different methods. The sectoid, for example, gets all of the food intraveneously, while the Reapers have a feeding frenzy not unlike the raptors in the movie Jurrassic Park. The basis of the food is always the same though]
These findings of the cow organs in the containers bring us one step closer to finally solving the mystery of the cow mutilations. All of this shows that the aliens are trying to turn Earth into a slaughter house for meat... this new data will only harden X-corp's resolve, and us scientists have already thought up a few ways we can use this to our advantage...
I'm not sure if its okay for the aliens to eat humans... I think that it would have more of an effect on the player, but on the other hand it mgith not work into the story. Should I change the words human to cow?
