On September 7, 1957, astrojournalist Zula N*** was sent on an expedition to Hermetia 7-c. Contact had been lost after a disruption in transmission and she never returned.
There are no further encounters until the retrieval of the documentary tape in the Pacific Ocean on July 14, 2023.
The following transcription was roughly translated from Hermetian after deciphering from the audio file:
“link has been severed…
the Alchemists were not supposed to get this far…
someone make sure that oblivious earth person never spread the disease to whatever system the tape landed”
1957年9月7日，星際記者祖拉·N***被派往赫墨提亞7-c進行考察。 在傳輸中發 生干擾後失去聯繫中斷，至今仍未返回。 直到2023年7月14日漁⺠在太平洋發現了一盒卡式帶，才再次出現相關線索。
煉金術師不應該走到這一步… 必須確保那個無知的地球人不會將疾病傳播到卡式帶所著陸的任何系統中。 」
