Brief History & Main NPCs
Roswell, 1947: A dimensional warping craft arrives and crashes in the New Mexico desert. It is assumed at first to be an interstellar craft. The technology is mind-bending but its secrets are very slowly discovered.
Area 51, 1960: President John F. Kennedy pays an unscheduled visit to the location to discover and be made aware of the dimensional technology. Tests on it reveal knowledge on how it will enable NASA to finally get into space and eventually land on the moon.
By January of 1963, JFK has witnessed the first gate in operation and in the interests of a positive worldview believes it is necessary to share the information with the heads of several NATO nations. The gate was fired up and connected before being quickly disconnected for fear of something coming through for which they were not ready. By November, certain members of the American military were fed up with his need to inform other nations and the end result was his assassination.
However, starting with President Nixon, the US opened its doors to NATO regarding what became known as the D-Gate Project. The location for the project was moved to the Canadian wilderness as it was perceived to be a US project and its location was hidden so it could continue to be projected as being in the US during the Cold War.
Over the next several years, several advances were made and things were tested. The only time the project truly lacked US involvement was under President Carter’s administration, some believe it was even kept from him. The first actual break in the dimension opening from the gate occurred in 1985.
A dimension was reached and connected to but before the gate could be opened further, it was shut down from the other side. News of the project became a serious leak to the Soviet Union. When Gorbachev brought it up to Reagan, it was continuously denied as being a functional project until late 1987 after glasnost was well on its way.
In March of 1989 while the world became aware of Operation: Desert Storm and Operation: Desert Shield, the D-Gate Project moved from NATO to the UN Security Council’s covert programming allowing the Japanese, Russians and Chinese into the process. In 1997, almost exactly 50 years to the day of Roswell, the D-Gate Project got the gate connected for the first time and sent an exploratory team through.
Delta Group One (aka DG -1) returned only moments later gasping for breath and claiming they had been on the run from attackers for two weeks. They had no ammo, no food or water, and over half the team had been killed. It was a lesson well learned that each dimension had its own sense of time.
