    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 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. ]
