Interlude: Part One - Crisis
The shock wave that struck the Continuum was all encompassing. It was felt throughout the Empire, on all of the inhabited worlds.
Every Observer was entangled with the Collective through the sub atomic, and quantum organization of its consciousness. The depth of this entanglement had never been explored in any formal way. It was not even known for sure how real this was. Its existence was more of a theory than an actuality and there were no formal structures built on it.
Of all the members of the collective, only Jim, Observer 92835670100561474, only he had explored the extraordinary scope of what that entanglement could mean. He understood what no other had ever even suspected, that all consciousness, everywhere in the universe was entangled in the same way.
This was the reality he intended to exploit as he carried out his plan.
Every Observer sensed it, it shook them to the core, no matter where they were in the far flung worlds of the Empire. Most of them returned to HomeWorld immediately, using their wormhole conduits to transfer their consciousness to the Central Planet. However, the apparatus that would normally receive them, that had received them throughout the existence of the Observer Corps, it was among the first systems that Jim had disabled.
They charged to the rescue of the HomeWorld, and the Collective, only to cast themselves into oblivion.
It was a massacre.
Those Observers who were of a more cautious disposition, banded together, those with military powers summoned them, they prepared for a different kind of intervention.
