The Velvet Black

Write a story where space explorers encounter an alien species that can only be perceived in complete darkness.

This prompt tests the boundaries of horror as the unknown lurks in the darkness unknown to the human eye. Consider tackling themes of fear, discriminations, and acceptance when dealing with the unknown or unseen. The infinite vastness of space provides a perfect backdrop for exploring such themes. How does lack of sight affect human interaction with the creature? What missteps might be caused by fear and lack of communication?
