What the hell was that! Luckily you acted fast and took it down before it could do the same to you. At least we know they can be killed.
Whatever it is, I guarantee you that it's not one of the crew. It looks vaguely humanoid, but that energy weapon isn't of our design. Make sure you take it; it might prove useful to study.
Now would be a good time to acquaint yourself with the power charger. Notice that the power meter for your suit decreased when you were hit. Use the circular power receptacle on the wall. It will draw power and replenish your reserves until you have reached maximum capacity. As long as there is power in your section of the ship, you'll be able to use the power charger as many times as necessary.
The creature seems to have sabotaged the main reactor controls. Either it didn't understand our systems very well or you interrupted it before it could do too much damage. The AI has scanned the system and says we can at least get partial power. Activate all six switches on the far wall; that will manually start the reactor at a low level.
Be on your guard. If there were one of those things, there's sure to be more.
