World Factbook Entry

An Island In Space was called Oumuamua when it passed through the Solar System.

The name Oumuamua, means "a messenger that reaches out from the distant past" in the Hawaiian language. The Island was discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii.

The Island is a self-aware artificial intelligence, devised by The First Race of beings to arise after The Big Bang. It is intended to investigate stars which might host advanced civilizations. The Island is disguised as rocky debris adrift between star systems, but close inspection will reveal that An Island In Space has both an acceleration and a guidance ability.

Anno2 wrote:er.. you have an "island in space"? Are there more? Sounds like it could be a place for a nice holiday. A get-away island in space for some rest and relaxation. Of course, that would depend entirely on what is ON the island such as oasis and bach fronts. Wouldnt want the visit to turn into a form of jungle survival camp with large mammals called dinosaurs hunting the visitors for food all the time. Other than that, hope you manage to get your engines sorted. We have no idea how your tech works in order to provide advise or assistance. Best of luck.

As part of our First Contact, may we know your origin and purpose?

Anno2 wrote:Great, we fly across half the galaxy to encounter a remote answering machine same as we got back home. Looks like that bad invention reached another quadrant. If we knew that we could have just sent a probe over here with some AI responder to have a nice chat with their floating message recorders.. guess we'll just leave a note with this thing in the line of 'we were here' and move on. Strange that it mentions a name similar to that of first officer Larai. Perhaps we could use that to our advantage. Anything hailing us we can have Larai introduce us here. she might be famous in this quadrant or something..

Who the HEck is Larai??!!?? this quadrant???? were in the oroin arm for godsake, theres a dangerous EMIPRE HERE, larai sounds like Lyrali our planet.

The crew you see on your viewscreen represent an all female society of different cultural backgrounds, a Matriarchy - our men are used for other tasks such as procreation. You will not encounter many of them as they are busy with menial tasks elsewhere.

Larai is a first officer on this vessel. Its seems a coincidence that you named a whole Planet to nearly match her name. Her station is not above mine. If the planet name is open to voting I would recommend renaming it to Mel rather. Its a better name.

you noticed our civilisation has been blasted back to Kardashev 0.8?

Nonono, your freindship is welcome! we could of been traced!

Yet you still exist and communicate.

*The AI begins transmission via the repaired communication system*
Thank you for the information on your home planet. A Matriarchal Society is interesting. Has this always existed in your culture, or is it a recent development? Also, do you have data on this part of the Galaxy? The planetary systems and local civilizations are unknown to us, as we have been deracinated from the portions of space familiar to us. We would be appreciative of any information or star-charts that you could provide.

The recent events show that Lyrali is truly in a precarious situation.

Science officer: "Captain, I don't like this, something about this walkie-talkie sounds like its just gathering information, why I dont know, nor where it sends that information off to.." I think we should break comms with it and just explore the old-fashioned way.

*The Zeta Captain responds to the recent Transmissions*

  • Madam, I assure you that the Island's request in genuine

  • Although we have explored much of this Galaxy, this portion of space is unknown to us

  • As damaged vessels in distress, we would be appreciative of any star-system data that you have on this region

  • We await your aid

Captain, this still seems suspicious, I say we just send them the data of the region we recently explored, region=azathoth and move on. Broadcasting the data now, prepare warp to the next system.
