S1E5: The Purpose
Journal Entry 238A.
Planet Prince, ENKI
It has been some time since my last journal entry, as my duties as leader of our settlement have kept me occupied. I was always a scientist so adapting to this new position took me some time and determination.
Our small community has grown since our arrival on this planet, and I am proud to see how we have adapted to this new environment.
The settlement expanded from the shores of the sea to a great river that runs through the heart of a verdant valley of tropical rainforest. The river is the lifeblood of our community now, providing us with water for our crops and animals we have under study. I am intrigued with the vast array of species around us.
Despite the challenges we have faced in adapting to this new world, we have also found many wonders and surprises. The flora and fauna of this planet continue to amaze us, with new species and variations being discovered all the time. We have also found evidence of former civilizations that once inhabited this world, which confirms our records and expectations. We are eager to learn more about their history and culture. If we are correct to assume, that will lead us into many breakthroughs.
We have built our homes using materials found on this planet, as instructed, and they blend in seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. The stone zigurat structures are sturdy and practical, yet also elegant in their simplicity. Inside each and every single one we have the most wondrous high technology acquired from the Igiggi, our latest allies.
As our settlement continues to grow, we are also facing new challenges. We must learn to balance our needs with the needs of the planet, and ensure that we do not cause harm to the delicate ecosystem that surrounds us, especially as the moon grows larger and rounder. So much so that it shines brighter every night.
Despite the challenges and uncertainties that lie ahead, I am filled with a sense of optimism now.
As we departed Nibiru, I knew that the mission ahead was shrouded in uncertainty. It was risky, and each member of our team understood that we might not make it back home. As the Lord of the Tomes and second prince-heir I was the obvious choice for the job – a scientist, a xenobiologist, and no stranger to space exploration. The Great Architect of Nibiru couldn’t afford to fail this mission, as the solution we sought could be the key to resolving a problem that had been plaguing us for far too long, a problem that seemed irreversible.
For more than four generations, Nibiru, entrusted to the ninth corporation of Abzu, had been facing a natural disaster: the planet is dying. Planets are like cells, undergoing inevitable aging processes as they journey around their stars, and as they move through the cosmos, they come ever closer to the center of their galaxy. They lose their momentum, their machine slows down, and the end is near. The energy produced dwindles, and their connection to the outer worlds is severed, hindering the functioning of teleportation technologies. They become enormous tombs, announcing their own demise.
The role of the corporations was to establish political and commercial dominance, capturing and colonizing the galaxy without interfering in fragile inter-racial relations. The ninth corporation’s task had never been easy. Far from the Abzu, and without the planet’s geomagnetic force and energy, they were trapped in the dry arm of the white galaxy. With the energy not restored, the only way to travel through the various solar systems was through the archaic use of interstellar vehicles.
Despite numerous attempts to reactivate the planet’s core, the corporation had only succeeded in worsening living conditions on my dying planet. Now, led by my father ANU, we are attempting to restore the atmospheric balance and correct the recent terraforming mistakes. That is why we find ourselves on this planet, alongside a brave detachment of ANU’s envoys: the Anunnaki, sent by ANU to the planet Ki.
As we continue our exploration of planet Ki, one of our main goals is to establish a communications array that will allow us to communicate with our home planet Nibiru. This has proved to be a difficult task, as the energy required to power such communication technology is enormous, and our resources are limited, at least until our reshaping of the nearby moon succeeds.
Despite these challenges, our team of scientists and engineers have developed advanced energy storage systems, using a combination of solar and geothermal energy sources, to ensure that we have enough power to maintain contact with Nibiru once the tides are revolving around the planet.
Nonetheless, we are committed to overcoming these challenges and ensuring that our mission is successful. We believe that the potential benefits of our mission to Nibiru and the Nibiruans as a whole make the risks and sacrifices worthwhile.
