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.
In fitting with their true nature, most live a nomadic, base-to-base existence of continual exploration. Far-flung throughout the verse which they see as home. 'Home' to them describes 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. Others have lost physical touch with each other, however those gifted with *intu can remain intuvisionarily connected & should they meet, these Intuvii immediately feel a kinship.
All Crew are Family, All Family are Crew.Intuvii proverb
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.
Due to their unusually long lifespans, there may be other O8 survivors out there somewhere.
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.
The 3rd post-Ark generation are the grandchildren of the O8. They continuing to delve ever deeper into space, expanding their interstellar home throughout The Verse.
The 4th post-Ark generation - the great-grandchildren of the O8 - continue to explore & endeavour to make a life for themselves in The Verse.
GLOSSARY OF INTUVII WORDS IN THIS POST
*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 Intuvii. Throwback Intuvii are not unheard of.
