Overarching Idea

This is going to be somewhat like a blend between Andromeda, Bab-5 and DS9, as far as feeling of the story line goes. BoArthur 18:44, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Season Highlights

  1. Discovering more about the creators of Outpost Space Seed
  2. Arrival of immigrant cultures
  3. Arguments among the crew
  4. Exploration missions into other areas of the Antilles Cluster
  5. Implementation of technology from the Assassins
  6. Marriages, divorces and babies being born

Does that sound good? Oh, yeah, and

7. ONE THOUSAND OLIPHANTS!

... maybe not. Sort of got carried away there. What do you think? BoArthur 19:18, 3 October 2008 (UTC)


I'm intrigued, but I still am looking forward to learning more basic details. Like--to what does the title refer? Zahir 19:22, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Outpost Space Seed is a partial reference to the episode "Space Seed" of the Original Star Trek, which is where we were introduced to Khan Noonien Singh (as in Wrath of...). Outpost, because it's like DS9 -- an outpost on the edge of space.
Picture a huge, cylindrical space station, with corridors and quarters--and other areas that I'm not going to tip my hand on just yet. It's huge, could host 10's and even 100's of thousands of beings aboard. It's designed such that ships could even dock with it on the ends.
It's ancient beyond years, yet in remarkable condition. There's no sign of the prior inhabitants, but it doesn't seem like it's the work of the ancients, as far as Vulia, Shyanna or Sarukai can tell. The Qromaxi won't go near it--but they won't venture out of the Antilles Cluster, either.
Other questions? They seem to get me thinking about what I've got in my head and writing it down. BoArthur 20:11, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Cool! I'm familiar with the phenomenon myself. So allow me to put forth a few more queries... Who found this thing? How? What happened when they did? How come the CoDominion gets exclusive rights to the damn thing and don't the neighbors have anything to say on the subject? Does it have artificial gravity, a la DS9 or Andromeda's "Drifts" or does it use inertia? Are there any records on board? Can anybody read them? What is it made of? Are there defensive systems? Do they work? Why are these folks being assigned there? Zahir 21:05, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Answers

  • Who found this thing? A Miniseries after the end of SV2245 Season Six will explain it more, but in a nutshell, Vanguard discovered it as they were passing close to the Antilles Cluster after --shall we say-- appropriating Vulia, Shyanna and Sarukai?
  • How? They sort of stumbled upon it in the great darks of space, taking a previously unused route.
  • What happened when they did? Not a whole lot. It seemed/seems a dead hulk. There may be things that "happen" down the road, though.
  • How come the CoDominion gets exclusive rights to the damn thing and don't the neighbors have anything to say on the subject? I'll have to say that I never said they did...and you'll have to follow the story to see if anyone ever does. Initially there will be no claim, because it's floating by in the deeps of space in CoDominion 'territories'.
  • Does it have artificial gravity, a la DS9 or Andromeda's "Drifts" or does it use inertia? It spins--like Bab 5. No artificial gravity by means other than good old centripetal force shoving their feet down onto the floor--which makes the likelihood of gravity loss loom just a shade larger in their future...
  • Are there any records on board? None that they've found in their first day aboard, but I'm sure there's some amidst the hulk...
  • Can anybody read them? Something tells me that won't be a problem...but none of the crew can just yet.
  • What is it made of? A fine question indeed...it's something that Lt. Davies is going to be looking into.
  • Are there defensive systems? Do they work? None active...for now. Well, none in the three rooms they've occupied.
  • Why are these folks being assigned there? The Miniseries after the end of SV2245 Season Six will explain it more, but the Vulia, Shyanna and Sarukai didn't feel like leaving the cluster, and refused to be re-assigned. Spitzer isn't sure what to do for them, but then the Outpost is found. This leads me to the name--they discover some symbols that seem to symbolize that it's an ark of some sort, something that Sarukai calls Raikaz, the Sagittarian equivalent of our Ark story, but which translates to Common Speech as "Space Seed". And the name sticks.
