The Dimensional Waveform Emitter has been extracted from the Black Moon. Work began almost immediately.

What is the Dimensional Waveform Emitter? It is difficult to express in simple terms, but one might describe it as both an emitter and an antenna that operates in a specific frequency tied to an unprecedented dimension. The Emitter has effects that resemble both gravity and dirac seas.

This dimension, which we're calling 'Heavy Dirac' for now, requires extensive research to properly understand- we don't even have a foothold on it. What we can surmise, however, is that the Emitter draws from and moves information through this dimension. The dimension could be said to be 'overlaid' on real space, but possesses a strange attractive effect that causes elements within that dimension to 'flow' erratically. The Emitter is capable of stabilising the flow in a small area around it and use it to transmit information, but it can also extend a bubble around objects and bring them into stable currents within Heavy Dirac. Because of Heavy Dirac's properties, the distance between two points is much smaller than in real space, allowing them to- from a real space perspective- travel immense distances in miniscule periods of time.

It was this property, we realise, that powers the Damocles' Graviton Cannon- perhaps it uses a replica, smaller Emitter, but the effect is that targets struck by it are forcibly 'ripped' into Heavy Dirac, where they are then dispersed by the current.

We're intending to research this more. What's most important now is this:

  • 1) We can now properly calibrate Peacock and Parrot to produce a global core limiter signal.
  • 2) We can now investigate the strange signal heading toward us.

Options

(We can do both of these so long as we have the resources to pay.)
Finish Peacock and Parrot, which costs 10 CP and 20 Research.

Investigate the incoming signal, which costs 30 Research.
