EWG MANNED EXTRAUNIVERSAL TRANSPORT TEST

Location: Ancillary Research, Development, and Testing Facility 623-Omega (Riksgränsen, Sweden)

Date: 21 November 1985

Historian's Note: While Ectodimensional Way Generation technology was first developed and tested in 1979, safety concerns surrounding organic dimensional transit held the science back for several years. The November 21st event was a landmark in establishing our place in the multiverse.

This document is to be a complete record of that historic day, with compounded audio transcripts, video logs and more. These brave men were the first to venture outside of our reality. Remember them, always.

[T-01:00:00 - Begin Log]

Dir. Forth: Good morning, everyone. Thank you all very much for coming here to witness this historic event.

O5-13: Thank you, Alice. The other Overseers were reluctant. But Dr. Conwell assures us you have taken all possible precautions.

Dir. Forth: Of course. The observation room is certified Class-VI protected, and as of this past month, the whole facility has been reinforced with Robert's latest miracle.

Dr. Scranton: Please, the SKDAs were Isaiah and Simon's brainchild. William and I merely altered the existing design.

Gen. Bramimond: SKDAs?

Dr. Kronecker: Scranton-Kejel Dimensional Anchors. They protect us from anything going wrong with the Ways.

Dr. Scranton: (nodding) Way Generation is quite distinct from other spacetime-altering phenomena. Our revisions to the Pietrykau-Fontaine design merely compensated for these parameters. It's all in my report.

Gen. Bramimond: I see.

O5-9: That reminds me, Doctor, I was hoping to ask you about that Stabilizer prototype you mentioned.

(extraneous conversation redacted)

[T-00:33:44]

NCOIC: Confirmation from Network. As of most recent information transfer, target universe is ready to receive mission crew.

Dir. Williams: Excellent.

Gen. Bramimond: This target universe. You're certain it's safe?

Dir. Forth: Yes, sir. It is in fact nearly identical to our baseline reality. The main difference is that their Foundation has been experimenting with exo-universal travel since the early 1970s. It seems they have their own Item 1322, and things turned out, a… a bit better for them.

(three seconds of silence)

Dir. Williams: (clears throat) The, uh, the point is, yes, the target universe is safe.

NCOIC: T minus fifteen, Director.

Dir. Williams: Thank you. (over intercom) Final systems check. All units respond with status. Let's get this show on the road. Medical?

SURGEON: Flight surgeon is go.

Dir. Williams: Confirmed. MSOC, report.

GNC: UNAV guidance & control is go.

EECOM: Electrical, go. Environmental, go.

TELMU: Telemetry, go.

Dir. Williams: Bravo, confirm?

Bravo: MSOC confirmed, chief. All green on my end.

Dir. Williams: Roger that. Network?

INCO: Comm, go.

FAO: Procedural, go.

Dir. Williams: Ground?

RETRO: Abort procedures and hazard response teams on standby. Awaiting SRO confirmation.

Dir. Williams: SRO, confirm?

SRO: All clear. Ground is go.

Dir. Williams: All systems green. Waymakers are warming up.

[T-00:05:09]

Dir. Williams: (over intercom) T minus 5. All personnel be advised, we are preparing for transport. Pad lockdown is imminent. If you have not cleared the area, retreat to NET deck immediately.

SRO: Command be advised, the pad is clear. Locking it down now.

NCOIC: I hope you're ready for a hell of a light show.

[T-00:00:57]

Dir. Williams: T minus 1. We're down to the wire, Captain.

Alpha: Roger that. Any last words, boys?

Bravo: If we run into ourselves over there and the multiverse blows up, tell Forth it's her fault.

Foxtrot: Christ, I don't know. One small step and all that. Let's hit it.

Alpha: Wonderful. Command, is it too late to ask for a better crew?

Dir. Williams: Unfortunately, Way Generation is imminent. But you still have a few seconds to abort the mission.

Alpha: (feigning sigh) I'll just make sure I beat these assholes off the ship. First man, just like Armstrong. (engages UNAV) Target universe set to 2U.2 Let's hit the road, boys.

Dir. Williams: Roger that. Captain, we are go for transport.

Bravo: Pedal to the medal!

NCOIC: SKDAs disengaged. Way Generation in ten, nine, eight, seven, six-

Dir. Forth: Here we go.

NCOIC: -five, four, three, two, one… now.

[T-00:00:00. Successful creation of ectodimensional Way gate. Video footage records the Digory Kirke shimmering before rapidly rotating and appearing to warp, coiling around itself and then disappearing from view.]

Dir. Conwell: Holy shit!

Dr. Scranton: (softly) Incredible.

O5-1: Are they… did they make it?

NCOIC: Steinhardt-Turok counters are within parameters. All evidence on our end suggests a successful transmission.

Dir. Forth: Now we wait.

Dir. Conwell: For what?

(several seconds of silence)

Dir. Conwell: Alice—

Dr. Scranton: Wait.

(silence)

[T+00:06:23]

O5-9: Director, surely you—

NCOIC: (interrupting) Sorry, um, Doctor Scranton? Could you take a look at this?

Dir. Forth: What is it?

Dr. Scranton: (reading data printout) …Unknown. An energy signature I don't recognize. (on intercom) INCO, I'm patching this through to you. See if you can find a pattern.

INCO: Roger that. We're receiving.

Gen. Bramimond: (standing) Is there a cause for concern here?

Dr. Scranton: Most likely not. But—

Gen. Bramimond: (interrupting) But? Butts are for shitting, Robert, and I don't take—

O5-1: Enough. General, Sit down. Director Forth and her team have my utmost confidence. I would not have elected to be here otherwise. (to Dir. Forth) We will wait. Do what you need to, just keep us updated.

Dir. Forth: Thank you, ma'am.

[T+00:14:59]

Gen. Bramimond: Director, how much longer—

INCO: (through intercom) Doctor, we've made a breakthrough down here. Permission to broadcast on speakers?

Dr. Scranton: (looks to Director Forth, who nods) Granted, INCO. Let's hear it.

(sound of static crackling over PA system)

Unidentified male voice:3imensional comm link. Repeat, SCP Foundation native to universe 5802-Sigma-Blue-Romeo,4 we have received your vessel and its crew. Welcome to the multiverse.

(cheering from Observation Room and other areas audible over the intercom)
