Russian Drones reach the Eastern Shore of Lake Vostok.
Robotic cameras sent in are interrupted by electromagnetic interference from a structure on the lake’s eastern shore. Cameras are brought back up until a better means of exploration can be carried out. Widening of the borehole commences on the surface, in anticipating for Russian scientists return.
Femaki’xirpaxul begins quarantine procedures.
The Femaki’xirpaxul enacts a quarantine protocol, releasing a blanket of plasma energy over the amniotic lake housing GEN#592760912400.10 when oxygen from the surface is detected.

Two deep-sea drones explore the expanse over Lake Vostok. Live feeds are viewed on the surface and transmitted to government observers in Russia, China, and the United States.
Femaki’xirpaxul engages Defensive Protocol; the Vostok Discovery.
Artificial contact disrupts the energy field around the Femaki’xirpaxul’s amniotic lake, sending an electromagnetic pulse over the expanse.
Observers lose contact with both drones, sending a final drone that returns covered with water from Lake Vostok’s eastern deep. Microbes in the ice-hardened samples measure over 600 million years old–an impossibility since they believe the lake itself to be 65 million years old.
Researchers at Vostok Base abandoned.
Russian government allocates funding of polar, space, and marine research to the ‘Project Ural Wall,’ a cooperative and covert survival program designed to preserve the Slavic peoples through times of pandemic and natural disasters.
Femaki’xirpaxul engages Gen Destruction Protocol.
The Femaki’xirpaxul discovers human born pathogen; begins the destruction of GEN#592760912400.10, and enacts immunity protocols for GEN#592760912400.11

Eros alters Moon’s perigee; Femakixirpaxul begins transphasic exit.
The Verethragna veers off course within 20 hours of deployment, floating past the Moon, on the opposite side of fragment Eros 433.
Fragment Eros 433 flies close enough to the Moon to alter its orbit.
Tidal changes and severe weather begin on the planet, disrupting shipping and inundating coasts worldwide.
The Femaki’xirpaxul halts its Destruction Protocol to enact Transitional Protocol. The intelligence calculates a 150-day pause from gen-destruction to allocate power and resources that will hasten transphasic relocation.
