It is the year 2485, exactly 100 years have passed now… Of that time what has happened? Nothing. Something has gone very, very wrong. No signals crisscrossing the night, no people, nothing. There was nothing. Old structures, falling into decay. Ships drifting in space, stations orbiting quiet where nothing ever occurs except for the slow meandering of geological events. Out of nowhere, something seems to happen though, at what is left of a once heavily defended star system that was teeming with life. Sitting upon a pedestal in a dimly lit room, a Type 3 Stargate begins to activate. The consoles nearby to control it are empty, but somehow the system has become active, the dialing computer is fed a signal and locks on. The chevrons take a while to build up the required charged, for this is no ordinary wormhole. No, the wormhole reaches out and crossed the divide and connects… The wormhole opens, the puddle sits tranquil.
Nimbus Station, circa 2385, the gate in the control / gate room opens up without warning. The force field is raised and they wait… They wait… Someone notices that the gate is drawing power from the city’s reactors to keep open, and a signal comes through…
A simple radio audio signal comes through first It is carried on a frequency of 3.85 Mhz the audio repeats for 5 minutes:
After that audio stops, this signal is heard for another 5 minutes:
The second message ceases and a third message begins, it is much longer and repeats for about 5 minutes as well:
Finally, another message begins and repeats for 15 minutes:
The wormhole has 8 minutes left before physics say it should close. By now, a crowd of people have gathered, some are itching to go, some are preparing to go, some people know what the signals say just upon hearing them… Someone is calling for help, someone is calling from help from Solas Tempus.
For those who want to decode this, no I don’t expect people to know morse code (that’s what this is), use this Morse Code Audio Decoder to decode it, it works really well, if you want. This is open ended, anyone who wants to go through the wormhole will end up on the other side, the gate will stay open for about 8 more minutes or so giving players time to go through.
