                           The first steps

The Explorer, a Kelnor class ship fitted with more sensors than a Dual science vessel, was ready for takeoff.
All crew was on board and ready. The engines of the ship ignited and slowly the ship started rising. Dust was
flying from the rocky ground as the push of the engines strengthened. Soon the ship was in orbit and the course
was set for the Hole. The newest version of the FTL drive was faster than expected and the flight to the Hole
was relatively uneventful. While flying through the hole however, the electronics acted oddly and a small increase
in the O-Drive used to drive away the storms had a small increase in power need. Things worsened while going deeper
until the ship finally flew out of the other side. The O-Drive started heating up quickly while energy consumption turned to
zero. It was quickly ejected. The explosion created an E.M.P strong enough to take out the ships electronics.
The ship was slowly being pulled towards the explosion, it had caused a strong gravity field.

Everything stopped suddenly. Everyone were frozen in place, except for one person. He couldnt move, like he was in water but could breathe easily. He noticed something out of the window and saw some kinds of portals form. Odd glowing beings exited the portals. They surrounded the source of the gravity and it dissapeared. He heard a whisper in his mind. "Another cycle has began and you will be the one to end it." At that moment everything returned to normal. The crew were suprised by the dissapearance of the gravity field and started a damage asessment. At the command center there was a large problem. Almost all of the conditions of space were different. The captain thought the readings were wrong to which a robed Cer that had been sitting in a corner answered: "The readings arent wrong, our knowledge of normality was." The robed Cer left. "Why didnt anyone tell me we had a dual on board?" the captain asked after.

10 minutes later contact with Kor was established and the ship resumed normal operations. What remained of the incident was just an empty place in the ships O-Drive bay, the automatic shutdown of O-Drives outside of the system and the records of disturbance in the time core.

When everything finally calmed down. They finally had a moment to watch out into space. Existence had a limit up to that point and the Cer race got lost into the infinite darkness of space. Not a single sound was heard from the planets or ships for many long hours. What they once knew had been replaced by something else, something far greater. Even Kor had a hard time managing the new inflow of information.

A year later:
Construction was up for a gigantic space station. It was a thing of wonder. Large enough to massively produce ships and its own food.
Another project however was also up, a huge transmitter inside the station capable of sending messages in hyperspace and radio waves,
however crude they were in their technology(the storms made them useless in the inner solar system). It was speculated that other being might
use such methods. The transmitter was completed and although the space station was still being built it was decided to send a message.

//We are the Cer and wish to meet other beings.// Along with the message was sent the location of them in the galaxy.
