Let's talk a minute here--
I have absolutely no interest in becoming one of your little 'puppets'. The last time an alien entity took control of my body, it didn't end so well. Obviously, you have no intention of stopping this cushy little takeover you've got planned so instead, let me offer you an alternative to adding me to your ranks. You keep your virus out of me and your drones keep their distance, and I'll bring you the people you want on this crummy boat. Hell, I'll even let you know what's being said behind your back.
We got a deal?
