19.2 Terran Technology Status Report

“The damage found in this portal is for the most part not due to regular use. There is expected wear, but there are also inconsistencies that require other explanations. For example, short-term memory revision and reporting algorithms are conflated, allowing the host artificial intelligence to withhold some requested information, and offer some that was not. The most likely cause is an unexpected radiation gradient emanated from the star in System 501, or possibly found in random pockets of the cosmic environment.”

“If this is the case, then all Terran technology, on Earth or otherwise, would be subject to similar and perhaps more destructive damage.”

“This is not the only possible negative effect of aspects of the environment of this planet. Terran physiology is also affected, perhaps even vulnerable.”
