//RELEASE ORDER 512-B
//RELEASED INFORMATION FROM SCYTHIAN MILITARY RESEARCH ARCHIVES
//INFORMATION REGARDING UNKNOWN INSTALLATION █████████████████
//ALL INFORMATION IS CLASSIFIED - █████ LEVEL CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED
Installation █████████████████ was discovered on the moon of █████ within the "Malhiem" system (Co-ordinates █-█-█ ██-█-████) by the Scythian Naval Force group "Theta five" (Fleet group consists of Scythian Supercarrier "Novack", Scythian Battleships "Galhor" and "Telosas" along with accompanying fleet of three destroyers, 12 frigates and numerous smaller vessels) during the routing patrols of the Northern wastes, an area of the galaxy filled with proto-systems and asteroid fields.
Installation █████████████████ appears to be the only sign of any form of civilized development in the entire system (and it is safe to assume for the moment, the entire cluster) and consists of a single section of some form of "Moonbase" style structure. This structure is constructed of materials far denser than those used in structures typical of this style, and are lined with multiple bracing systems built within the core of the structure - far more than needed to ensure hull integrity of an installation for this area of space.
The installation however, has suffered from extreme external damage that would appear to be from a super massive (possibly nuclear or fission) explosive blast - and is open to space. The first anomaly is that there is no form of debris indicated from this blast, nor any evidence of any kind of blast on the moons surface - and no form of craters evident on the moon to show that there has ever been one - the largest crater on the moon being a 5 meter wide dust crater formed by a recent micro-meteorite collision.
The second anomaly of Installation █████████████████ is its peculiar ability to bend space-time - in the fact its inside is considerably larger than its outside. What appears to be a single, contained cross-section from the outside, becomes a massive labyrinth on the inside - and any form of navigation quickly becomes useless - as GPS systems frequently fail due to unknown electromagnetic waves from somewhere within this labyrinth, robot probes suddenly shut down due to unknown means, and radio signals cut off seemingly at random.
Manned teams however - have been successful in using physical aids (ropes) to keep a path back to the entrance clear, thus far - an estimated distance of over 19 kilometres has been mapped in each direction (including that of the entrance) and every section appears to be built on a single floor. Facilities mapped during these sections include, but are not limited to -
- Straight tunnel sections
- Corner sections
- "T" junction sections
- Cross sections
- Command sections
- Communications sections
- Living quarters sections
- Mess hall sections
- Medical sections
- Hydroponic sections
Thus far, no other entrance/exit has been found, other than the one that allows entrance to Installation █████████████████ and the following anomaly's have been recorded inside -
- Unknown Electromagnetic radiation, which has made it impossible to map the Installation with robotic probes, but off radio signals and scrambled GPS transponders.
- Instances of atmosphere with the Installation apparently open to space. This atmosphere has shown no physical means of containment, or explosive decompression. Atmospheres recorded have consisted of - Oxygen/Hydrogen mix safe to carbon-based life - Hydrogen Sulphide, capable of eating through materials introduced to the Installation, but not the Installation itself - Carbon, in a pure gas form - Helium and Silicon, In a pure gas form.
- Exploration teams have reported hearing "Strange noises" within the Installation, these noises have been described as being anything from "Scratching sounds" to "Blood curdling screams" - as sound recorders do not work in vacum, these have not been confirmed - but recorded logs from the audio systems in the exploration teams suits have never recorded any sounds beyond usual radio travel.
- Unknown remains - These remains are of dead sentient, and non sentient's, some recognisable as minifig - others from species known to minifig, some completely unknown and impossible to known science. These corpses have been found in various stages of decomposition, from being recently dead (where infra-red still detect dissipations of body heat) to advanced de-composition, which is again, impossible in a vacuum. No cause of death has ever been discovered for these corpses - and all methods of transport for autopsy have failed, as the corpses appear to be fixed in place to the structure of Installation █████████████████.
As of yet, no method to contain Installation █████████████████ has been found, or needed - and Scythian research base "KINGUNDERTHEMOUNTAIN" has been constructed on the nearby planet of ███████ for research purposes. The Fleet group that discovered Installation █████████████████ now stands on permanent alert in orbit above the Installation with Nuclear and/or Fission weapons on stand-by status if needed.
