Incoming wormhole at Corsham. After stabilisation, a transmission begins. The transmission repeats three times then there is a pause before the wormhole closes again.
The transmission, when analysed, contains several distinct data streams which can be decoded. These data streams are presumed to contain the same message in several languages, one of which is recognisable as Ancient, one seems to be an audio message in Latin, and another seems similar to older forms of Uto-Aztecan languages but there is no direct correlation.
The Latin is as follows: “Aztlán periculum sit in aethra siderea polus a CREPITUS. Quaeso, mitte ipsum auxilium primaria singulorum ut instaurarent systems. Signa nostra situm deinde enumerantur. Habemus autem in loco securitatis causa non nocere.”
Once translated from Latin, the message is revealed to be a distress call: “Aztlan danger in heaven bright with sunlight from the explosion. I beg you, send it to the carpenters to repair the very help for the primary systems. Our next location of the signs listed. But we have this in a place of security are to the cause, do no harm.”
A Stargate address is also listed. Opinions on the last phrase from on-base experts believe that the message is saying that the gate is in a secure location, but that any security systems will not harm those who go to help. The world that the message indicates is at the far edges of the galaxy, but still within the Milky Way. Dial testing indicates that the receiving gate will not accept incoming wormholes from the SEF alpha sites.
The SEF have received a distress call by way of a transmission sent through the gate using various different frequencies. The transmission appears to include messages in various languages, and includes an audio message in Latin, which is provided and translated above. The rough translation of the message and scenario into operational points is:
There is a subject called Aztlán (could be a person or place)
There is probably a supernova or something similar about to happen Repairs of some kind are needed
There are security measures in place Dialling to the world is only possible from Corsham
The event will start on Corsham, and proceed through the Gate after being briefed IC on the situation. As it is an emergency situation, and personnel may not be available on base when called in, anyone arriving late can be sent through as and when they are ready.
