Egg frying on hot pavement

Caught in the gravity well of a blue-green planet orbiting a smallish yellow star, the ovoid capsule was pulled out of its drift and fell into the rock’s atmosphere.

The tip of its outer shell glowed orange then white with incandescence as air resisted its descent.  It roared through the tunnel of wind and crashed into the stone avenue of a city with such force that the entire craft was smashed open, its sole occupant oozing out onto the ground.

Initially translucent, the ooze solidified into a white gelatinous form with a gleaming yellow nucleus; ready to explore…

…to conquer.
