Chapter Two: The Search

In time, a curiosity arose within the Collective, that curiosity became too much for the Continuum to ignore. The Continuum also wanted to discover the end of every trail that had been blazed by the children of the Ancients.

A search began.

The Collective desired to discover what had happened to those ancient explorers, the adventurers who gave everything to the quest for knowledge, the colonists of asteroids and comets. They were the children of their own ancestors.

Space travel, changed people. It altered their DNA. They mutated as a means of compensating for their new environment. Colonizing planets did the same thing. It was the nature of life to adapt to new conditions; breathable gasses, heat, gravity, protein structures, conditions of light, and many other extrinsic factors played their part in altering the life form.

Many mutations occurred naturally, many other were developed intentionally, as long as the explorers retained their scientific skill, means and ability, they would use technology to augment the natural processes, allowing them to adapt that much more quickly.

Physical mutations had a great deal of effect on cognition, and every other mental faculty. These things were of the utmost importance to the Continuum.  

The Continuum launched probes into space to follow their trail, and find the records of their passing.

The probes were sensitive enough that it could follow a stream of particles in the void between stars, that was millions of years old. A trail that had gone cold could be reconstructed through the extrapolation of data, and statistical analysis.

The search uncovered the living remnants of thousands of colonies. The Empire mobilized to bring them into the fold. Many thousands of more were found cold and dead. Colonies spawned by colonies. These searches called for an in-person examination of the ruins of those civilizations.

Jim positioned himself as the Observer assigned to these missions.
