The first thing that I did after being assigned to the leadership of the Dimensional Sensing and Analysis Project was thoroughly review all of the records left behind by my predecessor. He frequently wrote at great length and detail about his excitement, caused by the amazing discoveries they were making.
I honestly thought him a bit melodramatic and overwrought; I assumed that the duties couldn’t possibly be as awe-inspiring as he made it out to be. I was wrong.
This morning we finally got the new equipment calibrated and signals started flooding in. At my first glimpse of the new discoveries, over the Sensor Interpretation Officer’s (SIO) shoulder, my jaw nearly dropped to the floor. I realized that I was looking at an alien world, that I was perhaps the second human being to ever see it. Even with most of the detail obscured by the translation from the strange wavelengths this alternate-dimension used as light, and with the resolution very poor from our inexperience, it was still the strangest and most incredible sight of my life.
Our SIO has informed me that data transmissions from the site have given us a few, poorly translated names for the regions we have sighted; I am attaching to this report our best images and our translations, as best as we can. When my predecessor said the translation software ‘needed work’, he was being generous.
Without further ado, I give you Tethaomon, “The Destined Realms”!
In addition to the full-scale map, we have managed to obtain some better-resolution images of an area from which some promising signals are emanating.
Finally, our highest resolution image yet., with the general area of interest indicated. My SIO informs me that by the end of the week we should have some much more detailed images, and that what we have so far is a good start. I simply nodded and smiled at her.
As best as we can tell, this outpost is being built into the side of a mountain called “The Equivalent Point” and it sits at the intersection of a forest called “The Forest of Corridors” and the foothills of the mountains, called “The Hill of Eviscerating”.
My SIO tells me that the location is near the shore of a brook called “The Meandering Disappearance”, which is the only name that really makes any sense to me. These creatures we are observing are very alien.
