It looks like some dream sequence from Gharr... But with another advanced group around who are referred to as "Ghosts" it does make you question other possibilities.

If it's a real dream sequence, maybe we'll learn something about Gharr's past and his motivations for studying alien planets and races, particularly civilisations.

Dream sequence ? Psionic power ? Something else?

"Wha ... ? You're running away from me? Oh, you must be my professional reputation ..."

On a somewhat more serious note, adult!Gharr is wearing his expedition suit here. I'd take that as a hint that he's not totally drifted off into hallucinations and memories. Some low-level(-consciousness) interaction with his implants or the signals they receive, maybe?

Black void, wet floor, are these memories of hallucinations had during isolation training? Or residual brain damage from the shuttle crash?

I've had these kinds of dreams too, usually after having too much sugar before bed.

Are childhood Raharrs skin patterns blotchy at first and become more defined later?

Yup, almost! Raharrs are born completely white, and they typically gain stripes somewhere around the start of puberty.

TRIVIA
Raharrs descended from the evolutionary branch that can be described as "apelike cats" by their evolutionary niche. Although initially carnivorous and solitary, they were forced to become omnivorous and form persistent packs during the latest of the rare ice ages of their homeworld, approximately 30 million years ago.
