This is a sub-plot idea i just wrote down for a book I want to write :)

"Decades ago, after the last ship had left earth, there was an intership search for any dissadent material brought along, which would have been missed by the
boarding security. Because martial law was already a reality then, nobody could complain when they were stripped, all of thier belongings were ransacked, and
all of thier files were scoured to find anything which could paint a disapproving view of these terrorists who now called themselves humanity's saviors. I
don't know how all of the music, and literature, was saved, but somehow A.R.C. was unable to destroy the seeds of hope planted so long ago. It was passed
along person to person, through what could be called nothing less than soul searching initiations. The first time I saw the Matrix, a film from the period
around the turn of the earths last century, I almost fell out of my chair laughing at the irony. It's 3330, roughly, from earths 3-dimentional time
measurements, so few humans are born who could even cope with the idea of A.R.C. being an evil empire. None of them believe, when made aware of the struggles
in multiple galaxies, and they cannot concieve that our own "saviors" would have so irrisponsibly used science as to cause the "Anomolies" now seen in the
nanodimentions of the millitary testing zone. We are in the matrix......
The anomolies started about four beats ago. The nanodimentions of a planet in the military testing zone suddenly began to break down individually, one at a
time. At first it wasnt a serious problem, A.R.C. scientists isolated the broken dimentions and "inprisoned" them, but somehow, the magnetic qualities of
these infected nanodimentions inverted, destroying the isolation barriers and infecting the surrounding nanodimentions. They still break down one at a time,
but as they invert at the end of thier decaying process they infect the surrounding nanodimentions, compounding the situation at the end of each beat. It
wasn't until the third beat that any damage to our organically concievable dimentions became apparent. The matter on this planet, dubbed "X", began to
fluxuate, sonfined to a specific location, forming what can be seen by any human being as an apparent mirage. On the fourth beat the mirage expanded, and
scientists are predicting in peer review roll, that by the 10th beat from its birth, this anomoly could make all of "X" appear to us as just a mirage in
space. A.R.C. is unsure what the effects to our senses, and to the areas other dimentions will be at this point, but I would bet credits to joy that they are
already doing tests. This is why it's so important for us to hack the technologies needed, and return to our original home to finalize the revolution before
any of this ever begins. The forces back then are nothing compared to what our children can do at 24 months. We can succeed.
I know that there are cabals of A.R.C. snakes scattered all over the place protecting thier interests in that time pattern. However, we can make our
launching point long before they can stop us.
Our plans are effective, we have designed plans which cannot be forseen, and our egregore is balanced morally and physically, we have the upper hand, and it
has now become imperative that we use it, or we are risking an eventual mutation in the dimentions of entire galaxies, and perhaps even megaverses, or
beyond. Thanks for taking the time to read this letter Dr. Orotu, I hope we can count on your continued support, and if there is anything we can do to help
ensure the securing of this technology, know that we are fully prepared to cooperate in any ways possible. Viva."
Dr. Orotu was still heavily in shock at the music he had heard, Dek had said that it came from earth. That it was passed along through all the beats since
its collapse. The two films he watched seemed like advertisements for the A.R.C. Federation, as if the people who made these things knew what was about to
"If the America people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currencies, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their prosperity until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~Thomas Jefforson
