GRP-243 — "The World Eaters"





Galactic Registered Phenomena: 243

Object Class: Gamma - Orange

Hazard Types: Geological Hazard, Sentient Hazard, Gravitational Hazard.

Additional Properties: Extra-Terrestrial, Organic, Titanic.

Containment Protocols: At this point in time, containment is physically impossible. Avoidance of the galaxy’s Outer Rim is recommended to prevent any encounters with GRP-243-A.

An emergency “turn and burn” procedure1 is recommended if an instance is spotted. An array of automated Highland Observation Outposts have been set up around the Outer Rim, operating as an Early Warning System. If GRP-243 is spotted in an area, nearby ships will be warned of the occurrence and advised to change course immediately.

Should GRP-243 occur in the vicinity of the Endeavour2 an emergency FTL jump is to be enacted with the outmost urgency.

Description: GRP-243 refers to a common phenomenon commonly reported in the Milky Way’s Outer Rim.

When a GRP-243 event occurs, a nebula will form in the span of a short time, from three to six seconds, and any planet, object, or ship within 13.899,2 km3 radius will be forced towards the nebula4.

As observed during Incident 243.1, a GRP-243-A instance will appear after a varying amount of seconds; these instances resemble a circular mouth of enormous size, with visible sharp fangs inside the mouth5. In addition, Insect-like appendages can also be seen inside the nebula. These entities do not appear to possess any visible olfactory, auditory or visual apparatus. GRP-243-A instances have been observed mainly feasting on planets and stars.6, and tend to ignore ships and stations, although these will be consumed as well should they be in range.

Discovery: On March 24th 28 AE7, GRPC Ranger Matthew Darren, while exploring a moon in search for resources and materials, fell victim to a GRP-243 event thus dubbed Incident 243.1.

Further is what was salvaged from Ranger Darren’s ALOS transmission.
