John awoke, unsure where he was. The last thing he remembered was over-straining himself in his attempt to save the crew. He heard a deep growling sound and turned on the palette he was lying on to see a huge fur covered beast holding a large crossbow. He tried to get up but his head hurt to much, and the beast wouldn't let him.
He reached out with the force to try to see if this lifeform was intelligent, finding that it was just as sentinent as a human. Using his powers, he tried to communicate with the creature.
