Dedicated to the history & lore of the Deep Space Crew. There is a lot of mystery surrounding the origins of the inspirators of the DSC vision that the archivists are gradually unravelling. Grey Operators are always in search of living descendats of the original eight crew members discovered in the verse in 2700, in the hope of working with them to fill in the gaps. The archivists also have artifacts recovered from the wreckage, amongst these are extremely damaged and fragmented chronicles written and illustrated in an unrecognised language, ilustrated with sketches of unfamiliar terrain, flora and fauna that express a spirit of exploration and disvovery. Work is underway to repair, decipher and share the findings with The present day crew.

    Conspiracy Bob

    Of all the descendants of the Original 8, 2970 or Conspiracy Bob as we respectfully call him, contacts us the most. He doesn’t always share his controversial ‘insights’ with us, often he just wants to know we are all O.K. Like most of the DSC on the family tree, he does not share the details of his descendance and he rarely tells us of his whereabouts.

    2970 believes that the O8 were in fact on a rescue mission to find some of their own who had been caught up in the power struggles of the 2700’s. He has never had any doubt that intuvii have been sought out by war mongers and revolutionists alike throughout the verse to abuse their gift of intuvii for their own ends. He is the founder of an anarchist group called SubVerse. We have no idea how many citizens are actually part of SubVerse, doubters joke that he himself might be the only one. However his ‘insights’ are often supported by a torrent of facts and actual events that any truth seeker finds difficult to ignore.

    In truth, Conspiracy Bob isn’t just some old, crazy spaceport lounger and over the years he has gathered a number of followers. SubVerse are actually very active under the surface looking for conspiracies in unlikely places all over The Verse.

    With a huge distrust of factions within the UEE, and in fact all governmental bodies whose financial infrastructure seems to result in massive inequality and an insidious lack of freedom for its citizens and overall disrespect for any lifeform that gets in their way, he is also very dubious of the motivation behind The Ark, which in his own words,

    “Even though the immense information contributed to The Ark is helping to map the universe via the Starmap, beneath the concept of unity it is glossed with, it might not be the bright shiny, save-all dream it is stoked up to be, but actually just some authoritarian database to control us and help maintain the UEE’s fragile status quo,”

    “It is OK”, Bob warns, “When it is used for the benefit of people and unity, but if it were in the wrong hands and turned against us, it could have devastating consequences ”

    Conspiracy Bob married outside of the O8 family tree to Maisie who died within her average human lifespan. Children? 2970’s natural inbred O8 elusiveness paired with over a hundred years to refine his own personally developed paranoia, means it is very doubtful we will ever know the answer to this question.

    Transcription of a handkept *6 record from Saorsa Dion, a last remaining O8 requested of her by a friend of Deep Space Crew to share with the organisation.


    To Saorsa Dion, if you see this, we {Deep Space Crew}, would like to express our gratitude to you for making contact with us. To the gobetween who initiated it, please don’t leave it so long before contacting us again. To you both, go safely.


    The Transcript.

    As i begin to write, it feels awkward, because writing is something i learnt late in life to help a necessary integration into the society that i, {and the rest of the O8*1 Original Eight crew}, found ourselves in after The Arrival. Why we had never learnt to write previous to that, is a good place to begin this handkept record to share with your organisation of fellow keepers of the vision.

    After The Arrival*2, most of the O8’s time spent within the societal system was relatively short lived. In this time we connected with some good people, became space faring again and able to continue the nomadic existence that resonated more with our true nature on all levels. Others, with a taste for adventure and eager to live a different life, joined us.

    Although we met many good individuals, we realised that we could never resonate with the system we found ourselves in, or any other system where methods of control are in place. Our ancestors left such concepts behind a long time ago, with the belief that even the best intentions for control are utterly unnecessary for an abundant and peaceful existence.

    We have never yet been able to answer the mystery of our actual whereabouts before The Arrival, or what we were doing, where we were heading or why, however we have rediscovered much about ourselves and why we instinctively perceive the world around us in the way we do.

    We found that our philosophy, beliefs and desires stemmed from seed impressions so deeply ingrained in our psyche that we don’t just identify with these impressions, we are unable to comfortably identify with anything other than them.

    These impressions also alter the frequency spectrum at which our bodies generally vibrate at a cellular level. Of course this is true of each and every sentient being, with frequency as an unavoidable factor that sets all living creatures physically apart from one and another. It is our specific frequency spectrum however, that makes us intuvii by enabling us to tune in to a state of intuvision*3. And although this frequency spectrum isn’t unique to us, being a descendant of generations of intuvii seems to have made it an epigenetic inevitability.

    Some words that best describe these impressions in terms of intellectual concepts are freedom, connectedness, inclusivity, universal integration, oneness, wholeness, fullness, holistic, homeostasis, equilibrium, equality, unity with all existence. The intuvii word we use to round this meaning up is wholiostasii*5, but we could just call it love for all life and it is the same thing.

    Intuvisionary*4 memories,{some of which we are recording with the hope of sharing one day}, make it easy for intuvii to believe in the haven of utter, absolute well being that we are inspired to create in every living moment, but sometimes even those that don’t experience these memories also appreciate the possibility… we believe that these visionaries have developmental intuvision that can eventually lead to intuvii and that in just one lifetime they can become what took us generations to. They too will then be able to gain access to a resonant well of information, by way of intuvision. {There are levels of intuvision, the mechanics of which i will not go into right now}.

    They can also experience and live, if they choose, in a state of wholiostasii. We understand this to be similar to a type of nirvana. A beautiful presence resonating at such a frequency that it seemed to give us a resonant immunity against anything that might threaten it. This presence can be experienced by a single person all the way to whole star systems and beyond. There are no limits to the expansion of wholiostasii. It needs no external stimulus, it is an utterly natural state of being.

    Anyway to get back to why we don’t usually put things in writing. Because of the combination of the way our memory works and how we can communicate in a way that we understand to be similar to psychically, by sharing intuvisions, intuvii don’t usually write. However we have realised that handkept records are beneficial right now, so we have been happy to respond to the request of an anonymous friend of Deep Space Crew, who will pass this message to the Archive Division, to transcribe in a format to share with the organisation. We are quite aware of this organisation.

    The last remaining intuvii of which i am one, live in transient hiding to maintain this frequency that is our birthright. We stay tuned in order to maintain the frequency in the space we are so we can live peaceful existence, wherever, whenever. We watch with welcoming hearts as our descendants and developing intuvii throughout the verse, knowing and unknowing alike, against the odds, through all adversity, share the vision. Go safely.


    Glossary of language annotations.

    *1, O8. O8 stands for Original Eight, which is the name given to the the eight spacefarers found in some sort of cryogenic state floating in escape pods amongst the wreckage of a spaceship in 2700. The true inspiriters of the DSC vision of exploration & expansion.

    *2, The Arrival. The Arrival is the name that has come to mean when the O8 were discovered.

    *3, Intuvision. A blend of intuition and vision which is experienced as if it were actually happening.

    *4, Intuvisionary memories. These are intuvisions that have been recognised to be memories.

    *5, Wholiostasii. A blend of whole and homeostasis. A natural state whereby someone wholey realises their connection with all life on all levels.
    Words with similar meanings that collectively help to describe the intuvii word Wholiostasii are; connectedness, inclusivity, universal integration, oneness, wholeness, fullness, holistic connection, homeostasis, equilibrium, equality, unity with all existence, mind/ body/ spirit, freedom, \love. Someone in a state of wholiostasii can be called wholi. Wholistassi comes naturally to those with the gift of intu or intuvii.

    *6, Handkept. Hand written, sketched, drawn, recorded by hand

    Transcript of The Story Of The Arrival As Told By The Last Remaining O8 Crew Members.
    Obtained from a recent visit by their son to the secret hideaway somewhere in the Stanton system.

    The whereabouts of the last remaining couple of the original eight [08] known only to their immediate family has been kept secret. The reason for this was always believed to be because one of them, if not both are Intuvii.

    The couple lived a nomadic life for a hundred years or so after ‘the arrival’, in which time they reared a family, travelling with them throughout the known Verse. On the formation of the Ark in 2800 however, in an attempt to remain unregistered, they settled ~ something very unusual for their ‘race’.

    Their offspring carried on travelling and continue the exploratory lifestyle they were used to today, now, with families of their own, they recognise that even though their parents are in good health, they are not going to be around forever and have asked them to share memories before it’s too late. They thought a good place to start would be a firsthand record of their arrival as told by their parents, little did they know that this would be the tip of the iceberg of a huge archive of ‘stories’ handkept by the couple, which are in fact their life’s work since settling, which they continue to protect carefully and are obviously the reason they have remained hidden ~ but that’s another (few) stories, when the couple eventually agree to release them.

    So follows the transcript of: The Story Of The Arrival As Told By The Last Remaining O8 Crew Members.

    Transcriber: [Son]
    So shall we start with your names?

    Both Interviewees :
    [Laughing] No!

    Transcriber:
    [Laughing} Just kidding, O.K so can you tell me about when you first arrived here?

    O8 Him:
    Well, we came around in what we now know was the DSA [ Deep Space Anomaly ] lab in the Stanton system

    O8 Her:
    Yes we just woke up there.

    O8 Him::
    It soon became clear to us that our ‘rescuers’ were under duress and the star system itself was under a negative destabilizing influence of endangering forces. It felt kind of pressured.

    O8 Her:
    Yes the reception wasn’t welcoming.

    O8 Him:
    Well it wasn’t hostile.

    O8 Her::
    No it wasn’t hostile, but it wasn’t welcoming.

    O8 Him:
    No it wasn’t welcoming, there was a lot of stress and distractions.

    Transcriber:
    War was coming right?

    O8 Him:
    Yes and revolution.

    O8 Her:
    Under the circumstances we decided on reticence, to focused on keeping our Wholi* clear .

    O8 Him:
    And we didn’t understand this language then either.

    O8 Her:
    No and they didn’t understand us.

    O8 Him:
    Plus we were suffering post traumatic kryo-pod emergence and our memories hadn’t returned

    O8 Her:
    They never did actually.

    Both [Laughter]

    O8 Him:
    But seriously we do have some moments of intuvision, they are possibly memories but it is unclear of their time placement or meaning.


    *********************************************

    O8 Him:
    So basically, we were unable to attune wholi with our rescuers and further divided by language.

    Transcriber:
    Can you explain Intuvision

    O8 Him:
    I guess the closest word you have for it, would be an amalgamation of of the meanings of psychic visions and dreams?

    O8 Her:
    Yes, daydreams but realer

    O8 Him:
    Yes because they are completely immersive in an experiential level, sensory.

    Transcriber:
    Thanks.
    OK, so what happened next?

    O8 Him:
    They continued their ‘ investigations’ separately, one on one.

    O8 Her:
    I remember some kind of visual recognition test…. I remember not really recognising any of the images they showed us,

    O8 Him:
    No.
    I know they were ships, weapons, people

    O8 Her
    Yes and writing, different languages.

    O8 Him:
    Yes.

    [The couple were both shown other artifacts that I have agreed to omit from this transcription for the time being, but promise to reveal it in context later]

    O8 Her:
    We felt the need to get out of there, we really needed to regain homeostasis & wholiostassi.
    O8 Him:
    Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to connect wholi with our rescuers.

    Transcriber:
    Can you define ‘wholi’ ?

    O8 Her:
    We based this word on your word holistic, wholi represents mind/body/psyche with a psychic element to it, a kind of super-intuition that can be tuned into when wholi is perfectly in balance. Wholi can be shared between people, or as we say people can commune in wholi.

    Transcriber:
    Thanks.
    What was your purpose when you arrived, did you have a purpose?

    O8 Her:
    We don’t have a word/meaning for purpose, it is an alien concept for us, one we have still decided not to take on.

    O8 Him:
    No, we explore, but it’s not a purpose, it’s just what we do naturally.

    O8 Her:
    It’s our nature.

    Transcriber:
    But you are settled here now, how do you find that?

    Both:
    Well, we are still exploring really

    O8 Her:
    Yes we are exploring the intuvisionary world now.

    Transcriber:
    What happened next?

    O8 Him:
    We were all taken for medical examination.

    O8 Her:
    It became really obvious just what a state of crisis everyone was in.

    O8 Him:
    We wanted out the minute we arrived, luckily we only had a short stay. there were people in much more need than us.

    O8 Her:
    But when we got out it wasn’t much better was it?

    O8 Him:
    No it wasn’t

    Transcriber:
    Did all eight of you stick together?

    O8 Him:
    Yes we did, especially to begin with, we spent time trying to piece anything together that might help us know who in space we were or what in space we were doing here.

    O8 Her:
    It was pretty confusing for a while, but it was also exciting deiscovering somewhere new.

    O8 Him
    Thankfully, we met some good people took us in, showed us the ropes and helped us get space faring again. We crewed other’s ships for a while until we managed to pick up our own, a Retaliator by Aegis. There was a lot of them around

    Transcriber:
    So that was your first ‘owned’ ship after the arrival?

    O8 Her:
    Yes it was basically the bare bones version.

    O8 Him:
    Yes, the Retaliator Base, there were a lot of them about and they were affordable we repurposed it for exploration.

    O8 Her
    It’s supposed to crew seven, but we squeezed one more in.

    O8 Him:
    Then we added a few single person ships to what was to become Deep Space Crew!

    [ … and so ends the Transcript of The Story Of The Arrival As Told By The Last Remaining O8 Crew Members. ]

    DSC Family Tree

    Due to the elusive nature of the original 8 crew members & all those that followed, there are a lot of blank spaces in the family tree, we hope that over time these blanks will be filled with names and lives, on our journey to discovering our forgotten origins. Until then here is a general overview of the DSC Family Tree.

    1st Generation - {The Original 8}
    Unofficially, there are rumours of two known surviving members of the original 8, a couple living in seclusion who would be old now even by their own standards. On arrival, they had no memory of who, where, when or why, though they did retain a strong sense of belonging.

    Of the 2nd generation, who are the descendants of the four couples that made up the original 8, all of them could potentially be alive at a year or two either side of 100 years old, though some of this generation partnered up with people outside of the original 8 line of descendancy who would probably not be. When it comes to their ancestry and whereabouts, these pre-Ark generations are very low key, particularly those with the gift of intu*, the intuvii, who generally keep this gift secret.

    In fitting with their true nature, they live a nomadic, base-to-base existence of continual exploration. Far flung throughout the verse which they see as home. ‘Home’ to them meaning anywhere ‘known’ to them and everything and anyone who lives in that known place.

    Some travel together and may make up part of the DSC, but many have lost physical touch with each other. Those gifted with intu can remain intuvisionarily connected and these intuvii immediately recognise each other when they meet.

    The 3rd post-Ark generation, their 4th generation descendants and crew of like minded, space faring explorers endeavour to delve ever deeper into space, expanding their interstellar home & making a life for themselves in the verse.

    *Intu: similar to highly psychic ability, and shamanic dream states, experiencing dreamlike visions ‘intuvisions’ complete with sensory experience of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, of situations from any point in time, so sometimes prophetic. Potentially everyone has the gift of intu which is really the ability to access a well of eternal and infinite information, but developed over generations it becomes epigenetically ingrained in the physical make-up and psyche so people can be born an intuvi. Throwback intuvii are not unheard of.

    More on intuvii coming soon to the Archive Division

    The Arrival

    During an extremely intense & unstable time of the UEE’s history; In the wake of the horrific Vanduul onslaught & the then ruling Messers under increasing pressure from both the unsatisfied populace & the gradual undermining influence of X’ian - a Deep Space Anomaly (DSA) Detection System - on high alert - picks up a signal on the deep space radar scan in a zone with no known Jump Points.

    There is some suspicion that it could be a secret weapons test, so with the promise of ‘back -up if necessary’ from an already stretched military, a small DSA reconnaissance crew set out keen to investigate.

    Reports of what they discovered are vague.

    What we know:

    Satisfied that the seriously damaged space faring vessel and encapsulated occupants they find, offer no immediate threat, the DSA recon. team extricate all the 8 inhabited homeostatic capsules for transport back to the DSA lab - along with any artefacts they could easily remove. On their return, a salvage recovery mission is initiated to collect the remaining wreckage for further investigation.

    On a clumsy release from the homeostatic capsules, the 8 crew are severely disorientated & appear to have no memory; showing no knowledge of their identity, history, relationship with each other, present whereabouts, or current situation. Their communication is stilted in a language unrecognised.

    Distracted by the effects of the escalating revolution, the recon protocols are relatively rushed. DSA recon. are satisfied that the rescuees are human and surmise the likelihood that they traversed a temporary Jump Point.

    This supposed temporary Jump Point is recorded and placed under extra vigilance alert.

    The crew’s artefacts are confiscated and archived for further inspection at a later more convenient, as yet unforeseen time.

    The crew themselves are transported to a medical recovery centre for monitoring, where, adrift in a steady flow of casualties from the recent activist attacks, they are discharged after just a few days into their stay, to release beds/ medi units.

    Transcript of DSA records recovered from the UEE. Notes in [ Square brackets] are our own ( DSC )

    Date: 2700

    System: Classified

    Location: Classified

    Crew members: 8

    Species: Human
    [ Physical attributes of some of the biological descendants of the original crew, have since thrown doubt on this. ]

    Female: 4

    Male: 4

    Age: All of the 8 crew are of similar age, exact ages unknown, estimated 40 - 50 years old.
    [ Time has since shown that some of the biological descendants of the original crew have a much longer lifespan than other humans, with childbirth happening much later in life than the current human norm; the cause of this is as yet unknown. ]

    Homeland: Unknown,
    [ Presumed to originate in this galaxy, but no actual evidence of this exists. ]

    Purpose: Unknown

    Notes: Aside of the effects of the release from the homeostatic capsules {classified}, all eight of the crew are in good health, although highly confused.

    Artefacts found amongst the wreckage are very damaged and uncommon {classified}.
    [ By way of a benefactor who prefers to remain anonymous. some of these original artefacts have since found their way back into the hands of the Deep Space Crew Archive Division and are currently being repaired, examined - a slow process, but one that we hope will reveal some history perhaps even the origins of the original crew. ]

    Ship wreckage {classified} is currently in transit.
    [ It would seem that the salvaged wreckage never made it to the DSA lab.There is presently no knowledge of the wreckage’s whereabouts. ]
