Overview of the Incident:The incident began when there was an outbreak of spiders mindlessly attacking my staff. The Research Director wanted to capture them, I told security to not risk themselves. Eventually, we found the nest and the security team went in to neutralize it. The team was being beaten, so I, being combat trained and with no Head of Security on board, went in and assisted with VICE, who was acting as my bodyguard, at my side. VICE and I managed to mop up and get most of the security team to safety for medical to assist. In this time, command sent a report saying some might be intelligent. We found one that only attacked when provoked. I was injured and the spider that I believed to be intelligent, due to its reluctance to attack, was taken and locked in telescience.

I was soon out of medical from a few injuries and venom sustained by the intelligent spider and was quick to seek it out. The RD was giving it basic commands and it was following them, but the Director asserted that it was not intelligent. I, believing that the spider would respond to me due to our previous encounter, entered the cage unarmed. Even though I was unarmed, I had ensured my own safety by having VICE in the cage with me as well fully armed and at the ready. The Director continued to protest my actions even as the spider made it more than clear that it was in fact understanding me and communicating with me. I told the Director to be quiet and observe as I was making progress. Instead, the Director threw a temper tantrum and stormed out of the room rather than staying to observe the specimens interactions with me. The Director continued to refuse the obvious signs of intelligence in the creature and went so far as to threaten to murder it and take it's brain out "to prove how 'intelligent' it is". Meanwhile, I was in the cage trying to gain an understanding of why the spider had come to the station and why its people had attacked mine. I eventually was able to ascertain that it had peaceful intentions and was the leader. It communicated mainly in nods and a soft grumbling sound.

Unfortunately, I was unable to continue to ascertain whether or not we were safe from this threat because the Director continued his tantrum over the command channel. I finally left the spider to deal with other matters and told the Director that he was welcome to do with it as he pleased if he was going to continue to act as a child. The Director did nothing more with the spider for the rest of the shift than leave it locked in telescience. Instead, he focused on making passive-aggressive comments to both myself and the Head of Personnel, whose name escapes me at this time, for the rest of the shift.

Did you report it to a Head of Staff or IAA? If so, who?: I faxed Central Command a basic rundown of the situation.

Additional notes: I believe that the Research Director failed in his duty by storming out of telescience rather than observing, and I believe that he failed in acting not only as a professional adult, but in the way any Head of Staff should be expected to act.
