Yes, they have a form. Worse: the form is useful. It saves lives.
SUMMARY OF UNDESIRABLE SLEEP-RELATED SENSATIONS (NON-PRECOGNITIVE)
SLEEPER NAME: Deidre Butler
DATE[S] OF INCIDENT: February 20-21, 2198 AD.
PRESUMED TRIGGER INCIDENT: Perusal of Amalgamation deck plans for longer than the recommended two hour period.
NARRATIVE SUMMARY: I was on the alien ship, and using the map to move my way to the aliens. The farther I went, the stranger the ship became. The gravity increased steadily, until it was causing me pain and making my nose bleed. As I walked through the halls, I could hear people — both human and alien — shouting nonsense words in the closed rooms. Sometimes things would appear in the corner of my eyes, but when I turned to look, they were gone.
Eventually I reached the room which I knew the aliens were in. They started calling to me from inside the room, using the Song of Welcome from First Contact. But they kept singing the song over and over again, louder and faster, and it stopped being words and started being a screaming whine of angry, stinging insects, and then the door started shuddering as if a million things inside were trying to burst out.
At that point I woke up, and immediately administered emergency mental trauma care. The analyzer detected no signs of incipient Sudden-Onset Violent Psychosis.
