SCP-XXXX in its dormant state

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The area of space containing SCP-XXXX is to be periodically checked on for any signs of change. Should any be observed, the area of space should be monitored at all times, as well the activation of the S.E.L.S.T (Scorpius Extremely Large Space Transmitter). Access to the S.E.L.S.T should be restricted to those of security clearance level 3 or higher.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a large entity located on the third planet out from the HD 151771 star system (HD 151771-3). SCP-XXXX bears little resemblance to a terrestrial scorpion, possessing a black mesosoma (abdomen) approx. four (4) kilometers long by one (1) kilometer wide, with eight (8) legs approx. two and a half (2.5) kilometers long each. SCP-XXXX's metosoma (tail) has no stinger and is abnormally proportioned to the rest of it's body, measuring approx. fourteen (14) kilometers long. SCP-XXXX has two pincers stemming from the front end of the mesosoma measuring about three and a half (3.5) kilometers each. SCP-XXXX's central eye group appears to have been severely damaged by way of blunt force trauma, causing SCP-XXXX to go blind. Several SCP Foundation research staff have speculated that the most likely cause of damage to the central eye group was a meteor impact. Several antennae are present throughout SCP-XXXX's body, which appear to be sensitive to electromagnetic radiation in the 104 to 1012 Hz range.

SCP-XXXX has been lying dormant in a state of hibernation since the year 20██, half burrowed in the sandy surface of it's home planet. Periodically, SCP-XXXX will emit a large gas cloud containing trace amounts of ███████ through large pores covering it's body. The gas's purpose is unknown as of yet. Save for SCP-XXXX, HD 151771-3 is completely devoid of life, as well as having an extreme lack of elements such as ██████ necessary to sustain life. Due to the incredible distance between the foundation and HD 151771-3, detailed observation has been rendered impossible.

Before hibernation, SCP-XXXX was observed emitting powerful bursts of electromagnetic radiation through an organ on its tail. Demodulation has revealed relatively incoherent, but interesting results (See below). Several members of staff have speculated that multiple instances of SCP-XXXX may be (or once were) present throughout the immediate area of space, and the emissions of radiation have all been attempts to communicate with surviving members of the species. SCP-XXXX has an estimated encephalization quotient of 7.5, similar to that of a human's quotient. Thus, a method for potential communication has been developed for use with the S.E.L.S.T currently in orbit around Earth. Phrases that can be used consist of several bytes of binary information, several spoken samples of different languages, as well as an instrumental song titled █████ █████.
