You don your diving gear
You struggle to drag the skeleton free. The spines quiver. Above you, one breaks, falls like a spear. You raise your hands to ward it off. A tearing - your suit? The sudden sensation of cold water on your skin; a blazing pain... An abrupt, overwhelming injection of indignation, and rage, and grief! Your crew reel you in, tends your wound, and locks you in your cabin until you stop shrieking.
Successful event
You don your diving gear
Your crew watch from the observation deck as you reach for the skeleton, speared like a hooked fish...

Your mind fills with song - solemn, echoing, watery, faltering - like the last notes of a baritone drowning in his bath. You know you will never see that place where you sang of your shapeful disgrace...

Your crew reel you back inside, and pry the skull from your hands. Gradually, your ears empty of song.
