Mysterious Glowing Purple Orb on the Sea Floor

Alien life in California:
Deep under the sea, near the Channel Islands several miles off the coast of California, marine scientists noticed a glowing purple orb hiding in the shadows. They zoomed in on the creature with an underwater robot camera — and were completely mystified. They had never seen anything like this before.

“I’m stumped,” you can hear one of the scientists say in the video below, as they watch a live feed. “I have no idea. I couldn’t even hazard a guess.”
Moving closer.

And there it is. But what is it? On the video at the link you can hear these biologists speculating about egg cases, but I've seen enough Star Trek to know dangerous alien life when I see it.

And notice the way this crab moved to defend the orb when the submersible approached. Obviously the orb is controlling it. But then the orb realized that the approach of this robotic craft allowed it a chance to ascend to the surface and take control of more interesting life forms, so it ordered the crab to back off and then allowed itself to be collected as a specimen. Back in the lab, the human scientists say they still haven't figured out what it is, but then since they must be under its control by now that is only what we would expect.

If the story and photos are from National Geographic, didn't it mention that Mystery Science Theater is coming back? Is this an audition? If so, you have to remember who your auditioning for and start performing far below your writing abilities. Dialog has to be particularly awful.

Just a little helpful advice.
