You find yourself on a ship rich in fleshy hosts perfect for you to reproduce, but do know that the hosts can fight back and kill you with ease, so it is best to get one when it is alone. When the host is in maintenance will be a good time to strike, you can take a single host down with your psychic lance which will give you enough time to infect the host before they have a chance to react. Once you have a host you can either stay silent and keep yourself hidden, or speak with the host from within its own mind; maybe you can form a symbiotic relationship that both benefit from, but if the host is hostile and tries to remove you, you can attempt to take control and reproduce while you can. The overall best option is to stay hidden as to not get yourself killed, but if the host discovers you and tries to make a positive relationship then you have struck gold. Just know that you can appear on medical huds when in control of the host, so best not do that while in medical.
