The Continuum Organization

The Continuum Organization is in actuality an offshoot of the Time Lift Project - when Darius (the man from the year 2000) discovered that the Time Lift technology not only had the ability to project and individual through time - but also breach the dimensional barriers that kept the realities separate (first seen in the Episode "Time and Tides").

Whilst Time Lift Agents were exploring the contra - earth, discovered in a direct-opposite orbit to our own earth BY U.N.I.S.E.T. (the United Nations Space Exploration Team) - yet rendered invisible because of it being dimensionally out of "step" with our own reality, the Operatives deployed on the new earth seriously interfered with the colonists of that dead and blasted world.

The "Enigmatrons" as they called themselves, were invisible and unliving – the exact opposite of life on our world. They had colonized contra-earth (a dead and radioactive world in their reality) setting up several bases there.

When the Time Lift team deployed there to investigate accidentally fired upon an Enigmatron base - mistaking the Enigmatrons scanner array for a weapon, the enraged Enigmatrons swore revenge upon the "Earth Men" and their home planet of what came to be known as “True-Earth”.

Thus the cold war with Contra-Earth came to be, and a new Organization (an off-shoot of project Time Lift) came into existence – charged with the protection of earth from these Alien Invaders.

The "Continuum Organization" as it was called, was Funded independently – using money from viable technologies brought back from Contra-Earth - and many Time Lift Security Agents were drafted into service, keeping the same uniforms and weapons they used when working on the Time Lift project.




These new Continuum Agents, to protect their identities from the Enigmatrons and their sympathizers - were given Code Names to conceal their identities and protect their families from the Enigmatron threat - all except one that is.

Conrad Raven, the Time Lift Security Operative - leader of the first Contra-Earth Exploratory Mission died shortly after returning to earth. It was discovered that Contra-Earth is extremely radioactive, and whilst his other team-mates were treated and saved (both now serve Continuum in an advisory capacity, training new Continuum recruits) Conrad unfortunately passed away.

Conrad’s body was riddled with radiation – and there was simply no hope for him - he died a horrible and lonely death.

Conrad Ravens body vanished from the morgue within hours of his death, and despite his confirmed passing has been seen in the vicinity of several disaster zones believed to have been executed by the Enigmatrons; wearing a mockery of a Continuum Officers Uniform that is black as pitch.

Threatening messages on behalf of the Enigmatrons have been delivered by “Captain Onyx” leading the heads of Continuum to believe Conrad Raven has been returned to a horrible “un-life” as an Enigmatron agent.

Continuum Agents

All continuum agents adopt a code-name, which is always prefixed by their rank. These code names are taken from Minerals, Gemstones, and other precious stones.

Colonel Pearl
Captain Ruby
Captain Azurite
Lieutenant Emerald
Captain Hematite
Captain Amethyst
Captain Kunzite
Captain Citrine
Captain Magnesite
Captain Amber
Doctor Septarian


The Archons

The Pilot Arm of the Continuum Organization is entirely Female. Known as Archons – they are skilled, sleek, and deadly – their code names come from Birds of Prey.

Eagle
Hawk
Falcon
Owl
Vulture
Buzzard


Their Fighter Planes, Known as “Raptors” are fast, deadly, sleek – and a steely-grey in colour.

Enigmatron UFO’s

One of Earths biggest defenses in the Battle against the Enigmatrons is the Moon, as an orbital defense and monitoring platform it is second to none – so it was only inevitable that Continuum should intend to use it to monitor the comings and goings on Contra-Earth.

Sometimes the Enigmatron menace “manifests” itself without warning, other times they use Dimension Ships to travel from their out of step planet to our own Earth.

These Dimensionally Transcendental craft are capable of not only traveling through space at tremendous speeds – they are also able to ‘side step’ between local dimensions – reducing the need for large and clumsy devices to travel between Contra-Earth and True Earth.

Each Craft normally carries two crew –their space suits (red and silver in colour) are filled with a green staining bio-mimetic gel. Which protects their bodies from high speeds and dimensional travel? The gel cushions and enhances the crew’s natural resilience, but has the unfortunate side effect of staining the skin green.

Originally it was thought that these Crew members were actual Enigmatrons made flesh, but a far more sinister explanation is evident. The crew are (for the most part) inverted copies, but the constant wear and tear of travel back and forth (and inevitable damage during Enigmatron missions) often kills the Crewman. The suits and the gel maintain a stable environment for the Cadaver, leaving it functional for much longer than a normal inverted replicant – it’s just as 
likely to encounter a stained green skeleton as a fully formed undamaged human form inside one of these suits.
