“Communications Control” by PapyPilgrim.
“You are the communications officier of a ship. No piloting, no laser shooting, no shield activating, no full throttling[.] […] Those are not part of your job.”
In “Communication Control” you will have to communicate with alien spaceships to rescue them or to find out whether they are harmless or not. What I especially love about this is the fantastic parser input interface. It is not just some fancy feature, but rather a fundamental part of the gameplay experience.
