Glossary of Terms[edit]

Anoikis
Commonly used by Capsuleers to refer to star systems accessed via wormholes, believed to have Jovian etymology.
EVE Gate
An impossibly massive spatial phenomenon visible from the New Eden system, but estimated to be more than three light-years away. A massive structure sits at its center, marked with an indecipherable ancient language. At the top of the gate, the largest markings form the word EVE.
Infomorph
Refers to a non-physical, sentient being that exists purely as information. The Sleeper civilization is posited to be an infomorph society. Typically, infomorph refers to a consciousness uploaded into a computer from a biological entity.
See also: Through training in Infomorph Psychology, a capsuleer may transfer his / her consciousness into another clone at a separate facility.
See also: Zainou Biotech CEO Todo Kirkinen, the first man to transfer his mind into a machine.
Rogue Drones
Highly-advanced self-aware drones capable of replication.
See also: Arek'Jaalan: Rogue Drones
Sleepers
The Sleepers were masters of virtual reality, neural interfacing and cryotechnology.

Wormhole
Wormholes are space anomalies that are like rifts in space, connecting two separate locations. Like stargates, they allow the travel of ships from one system to another. Unlike stargates, wormholes are not permanent. They connect two systems for only a short time, and collapse when too much time has passed, or too much mass has passed through them. Wormholes can connect two systems quite far from each other, and can provide temporary shortcuts to areas that would otherwise take many jumps to get to. Wormholes can also connect to uncharted space, or wormhole space.
Yan Jung
The Yan Jung nation possessed advanced gravitronic technology and force field theories.

Objects of Debate[edit]

Apotheosis
A small shuttle of uncertain design, distributed to all registered capsuleers by the Society of Conscious Thought in YC110. Its technological base is unknown. With the exception of higher sensor strengths, it is remarkable similar to other shuttle class vessels, including provoking violent response from Sleeper drones.
Awakened Infomorph
File:Awakened Infomorph 01.jpg
The Awakened Infomorph
An entity of unconfirmed legitimacy observed being contemporary with active Sleeper attacks in C6 wormhole systems and the formation of spatial rifts[1]. It was most famously seen in New Caldari following an attack on capsuleers by Sansha's Nation on YC113.07.22, where it made its only recorded attempt at communication by responding to a question of whether or not it was there to help with a simple "No." It is outwardly a human female of the Jin-Mei ethnicity. Pilot records indicate employment with the Center for Advanced Studies.
Mysterious Probe
Located in Charmerout, despite its familiar construction, this ancient probe is made from materials and electronics unlike anything you've ever seen in New Eden. It floats silently through space, seemingly dormant until closely approached.[2]
Mysterious Shuttle
An outwardly Caldari shuttle that keeps a tight orbit around a beacon located near the Geztic star. It was first observed toward the end of YC112 and remained unresponsive to all external attacks or stimuli. When tested on YC113.07.23, when successfully jammed by ECM, it would respond. In all tests, the shuttle remains unresponsive to all other intervention by modules and weapons. More detail is available on the Mysterious Shuttle page.
Zephyr
A minimalist exploration ship designed by the Intaki Valsas en Dilat and distributed to registered capsuleers in YC111 by the Intaki Syndicate. It does not utilize conventional sub-light propulsion systems, opting to instead use solar sails for propulsion. Its infrastructure is similar to a standard shuttles and is incapable of fitting any modules with the exception of the Prototype Iris Probe Launcher, which was designed specifically for the Zephyr. Its signature radius is comparable to a shuttles, registering a minuscule 25m. Most notably, it does not provoke any aggressive targeting or weapons fire from Sleeper drones or sentries. The exact reason for this apparent invisibility is unconfirmed. The manufacturer has yet to respond to inquiries regarding the specifics of its design and behaviour.

Forgotten Core Assembly Hall Magnetometric Space is a lullaby, exploration a dream. The motionless environments beyond the wormholes are places of refuge, retirement, safety, stasis. Nestled in this corner, a comfortable deadspace pocket, something ancient resides: a society asleep, their secret structures inert and isolated, safe in soundless void.

These ruins doze away, oneiromantic. They’ve slumbered for millennia, yet their structure remains intact. In their torpor, their memories have dimmed, their significance forgotten, their inhabitants faded. Ripe secrets are stored in this sleeping mass, hidden wonders for the taking.

Reaching the Sleepers’ treasures is a hazardous task. Something stirs amidst the ancient outpost: a nagging fear, a festering phantasm. Not everything sleeps peacefully here: Who knows if there are nightmares lurking in this berceuse?

Integrated Terminus Cosmic Anomaly Here you are again: another dead end. This impasse is not a physical one, but an ancient one. Why is there a Sleeper station near these Talocan ruins? Why does it seem like these ancient races, long dead and all but forgotten, are intertwined, like star-crossed lovers in the universal play? Perhaps the answer rests in that terminal.

There are no answers here; only debris remains. Secrets have been lost to the void, perhaps containing among them some key to salvation from this bleak existence.")

Oruze Osobnyk Cosmic Anomaly The mysterious structure inside this deadspace pocket offers few clues as to the purpose it once served. Similar compounds -- albeit far less complex than this one -- have been reported, each featuring the same huddled architecture, evocative of the enigmatic Phantom cruiser. What relation the “Oruze” structures may have to one another remains a mystery. An enclave positioned at the heart of the construct appears to have been entirely redesigned. It is flanked by two others, which in turn are hedged in by engineering stations that themselves seem to have been redesigned. The only insight into the unique architecture is the word "Oruze Osobnyk," which continually resurfaces throughout the garbled, largely indecipherable transmissions that emanate from within.

Phase Catalyst Node Cosmic Anomaly Long-distance scanners reveal a multitude of structures secreted away behind dense gas nebulas. Almost regal in appearance, the compound features various thermoelectric converters connected to one another in a strange formation, running the energy they produce through concentric arches that ascend like the stairs to a throne. Whether the architecture serves a function or exists purely for aesthetic reasons remains a mystery.

Sleeper Data Sanctuary Cosmic Anomaly Data is eternal, immortal, immutable. Even when the engineers and intelligence behind its creation are gone, information, facts, and knowledge never die. Throughout this deadspace pocket, information lives and breathes, whispering hidden meanings through conduits and cables. Serene though it may be, there are forces at work – mechanical by nature, artificial in existence, enlightened by unnatural choice – that do not want information to be shared. They are unsleeping guardians protecting the universe's slumbering god, knowledge.

Solar Cell Cosmic Anomaly Astrophysicists studying Sleeper sites have noted that some Sleeper structures are still operational – and by design, no less. Outposts run basic life support systems, engineering stations buzz with running motors, and stations glimmer with light, energy, and mundane activity. No known reason exists for this persistent operation, but a few clues emerge.

This cluster of thermoelectric converters is common around large solar bodies, supposedly for collecting radiation and storing energy for use throughout Sleeper colonies: a persistent generator for a dead race. Even to this day, this structure is operational, although how it distributes its energy and for what purpose is still unknown.

Strange Energy Readings Cosmic Anomaly The radiation levels of this site are high but within tolerable limits. Wavelength readouts suggest a large cache of a powerful isotope was once housed here, but no solid traces remain. The level of radiant antimatter can only be explained by an immense--and recent--matter displacement. By the way, incoming hostiles.

The Line Cosmic Anomaly Long-range scanning reveals a chaotic line of asteroids and debris, stretching out endlessly as it twists onwards into the darkness. Upon arrival, it seems as if the place is empty and has been for quite some time. There is the sense however, that it was not always this way. Huge amounts of data are passing through the area, as if there was once a receiver for it somewhere nearby.

The already dim sunlight barely manages to pierce the clouds as they drift effortlessly through a tangled promenade of scarred and broken rock. Every few seconds, the ship's sensors simulate the sound of another small explosion nearby; one more camera drone that couldn't spot the debris.

The Mirror Cosmic Anomaly From the moment your scan probes lock on to this signature, it is immediately apparent that something big lies ahead. Almost overwhelmed by the flood of data, your ship’s sensors struggle to shut out the colossal amounts of interference flowing outwards from the local deadspace pocket. Almost none of the information is decipherable. The only hope is some weak signals being transmitted on local comms that, if homed in on, may provide some clue as to what role the facilities here once played.
The Oruze Construct Cosmic Anomaly The mysterious structure inside this deadspace pocket offers few clues as to the purpose it once served. An enclave positioned at the heart of the construct appears to have been entirely redesigned in some way, to serve a goal now long-forgotten. The only insight into the unique architecture is the word “Oruze,” which continually resurfaces throughout the garbled, largely indecipherable transmissions that emanate from within.

The Ruins of Enclave Cohort 27 Cosmic Anomaly Entirely void of any signs of life, this small pocket of deadspace echoes a story told all over the vast stretches of the unknown regions: the demise of the ancient Sleeper race. Information portals – offering the only data that is decipherable – refer to the area as “Enclave Cohort 27”, identifying the two enclaves amongst many other Sleeper settlements. One enclave has clearly been disconnected from its power supply, whilst the other has succumbed to the same solemn fate for some other, unknown cause.

Crippled Sleeper Preservation Conduit Outpost Frontier Stronghold Tiny windows looking out into space offer a glimpse past this structure's once-impressive armor plating and through to the strange sights within. Barely visible in the dim light are rows upon rows of small chambers, stretching out endlessly inside the darkened hallways of this mammoth conduit. A myriad of connective wires interlace with giant pipelines, all of them broken or badly damaged. A strange electronic interference emanates from deep inside the facility, suggesting that perhaps not everything inside has fallen into disrepair.

The Oruze Construct
Imposing in its majesty, this giant dome stands as a testament to the technological might of the ancient Sleeper race. Even millennia old, the innumerable electronics systems within are still comparable to contemporary technology, in some cases even exceeding it. The distinctive hub-like design of this particular structure suggests that it operated as some kind of central data nexus, a shining capital amongst a digital metropolis.

Although entirely functional and intact, the only signs of life within are electrical currents and the eerily constant transfers of data.
Sleeper Engineering Station Solar Cell This enigmatic structure appears to house numerous engineering subsystems. An outer defense system is still online, shielding the installation from any hostile actions. Inside the facility there is a maze of data networks tangled amongst the cables and conduits that sustain them.

Forgotten Frontier Quarantine Outpost Magnometric This deadspace pocket describes an ancient conundrum, an enigma from the ages: Whose ruins are these? A cursory glance reveals the outpost to be clearly Talocan, a race long gone in time’s vacuum. However, permeating the abandoned structures are Sleeper drones, and their influence ferments the surrounding environment. In this unknown space, more questions pervade: Why are these drones here? What are they hiding?

There are secrets in this Talocan outpost, and by the looks of it, nobody will be missing these forgotten relics. But acquiring these lost trinkets of technology will not answer that one, nagging, fundamental questions: Why are these two ancient races, so utterly disparate, sharing this space, and to whom does this outpost belong?

Talocan Structures[edit]

Name Habitat Description Image
Exchange Depot Core Stronghold Amidst the ruins of this Talocan outpost, the exchange depot looms, its presence foreboding. Judging from the wreckage inside, the depot was either used for imprisonment or cultural exchange; eerily, there seems to be very little difference between the two. Whatever its purpose, this structure is rather prevalent among the outposts, displaying its importance in Talocan society.
Extraction Silo Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils This towering structure contains all the basic elements of a regular silo: cavernous storage areas, thick walls, extensive ventilation, etc. Based on the scans of this silo, however, the silo’s previous contents are unknown. The residue from inside reveals nothing known in modern times, or even odd genetic combinations. Whatever its contents, the silo emits an unfamiliar – and uneasy – presence.
Outpost Core Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils Centuries of emptiness have left this Talocan outpost’s central hub in disarray, but the chambers and corridors inside portray a busy (if very spartan) existence. Advanced technology mingles with rustic repairs and patchwork assemblages. Some of the technology is ancient and very rudimentary in design, harkening back to cultures long gone, yet with hints of familiarity.
Coupling Array Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils The long capsules in the coupling array offer no hints as to their purpose. Archaeologists conjecture that the Array contained escape vessels, food bins, fuel resources or equipment for punishment. Some theories purport that all of the above are true.
Outpost Conduit Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils Narrow tubes and electrical wiring fill the outpost conduit. Equal parts electrical artery and linking structure, the interior of this connecting structure is in disrepair, but it’s polyferrous hull keeps the ravages of space and time at bay.
Polestar Forgotten Frontier Recursive Depot The central piece of this Talocan station is the Polestar, the nerve center of the complex and the heart of Talocan survival. Though dilapidated and unusable, the Polestar’s outer hull is breached in many parts. Its propulsion jets and mini-generators are destroyed and decaying. From the burn marks around the propulsion thrusters, this Polestar has been jettisoned many times as a necessary structure for a migrant culture, but in this condition the Polestar’s current location will remain its last.
Static Gate Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils This standing structure shares many similar aspects with modern acceleration gates. Whispers among Talocan lore-keepers tell of the Talocan’s firm grasp of astronautical engineering, and this gate may offer some insight into this ancient race’s knowledge.
Observation Dome Forgotten Perimeter Habitation Coils Large windows and telescoping turrets peer out into the surrounding darkness. The Talocan observation dome always appears to be staring, despite the absence of its original occupants.
