I recently had a fan ask about what exactly was coming in the FEM32 universe comics in 2015...and my answers to his questions were pretty lengthy, and I figured some of the rest of you might like to read through it. In it, I clarify some of the questionable points...and also give a more direct view of what to expect in upcoming episodes.
The Rephaite are the half human offspring of THE OTHERS. The "Others" themselves are the ancient galactic race that seeded the galaxy with intelligent lifeforms. Upon each world they visited, they would use an edited version of their own genetic code to create a servant species from whatever dominant animal species was found upon each world. They had a great fear of thinking machines, and thus never had robots or robotic computers. The World Tree itself, is a giant organic being that, unless slaved [connected to] a guardian bearing OTHERS genetics, will die. It cannot live without a guardian to control and guide it. They did this so the giant computers beings could never turn on them without dying themselves. I may get into that later as to why they didn't have robots...but suffice it to say, they had to have labor forces on each world they visited...but by giving only certain genetic traits to the species they chose to serve them, they created smarter species, but prevented them from being too advanced...and also never gave them the genetic code they would need to operate OTHERS technology...thereby again, preventing their creations from being able to turn on them...or steal their higher levels of technology. What happened on Earth was that they ones who came here, selected a bipedal ape-like being that was not extremely dissimilar to their own ancient ancestors, and so their slaves on Earth resembled THE OTHERS themselves after being forced-evolved by them. And of course I've already told the story of how they ended up banging some of the human servants...and in doing so, they passed on their entire genetic code to the REPHAITE offspring of these unions. All were eventually wiped out during the Great Deluge and the war between themselves, but Onei Mupuh's predecessor, gathered their bodies and used the World Tree to "preserve" their genetic codes. The Tree's programming inhibited it from being able to clone Rephaite/OTHER genetics, but it was not prevented from preserving it. This "code" in the form of the "fruit" is what Shadiya gave to the Nazis. She also ends up giving them advanced tech in an effort to help them along. Her plan was...since she and the tree were prevented from making their own Rephaite...she would do her best to assist the humans in making them "FOR" her. This will come out later in Neue Rasse. Onei Mupuh protected and curtailed the World Tree because she knew about THE ENEMY...the great mysterious threat...and she knew that if the other races of the galaxy learned that we had Rephaite here, they would come calling and a war might erupt. The old bitch was actually right and was doing her best to protect what she possessed. But the World Tree, ever-charged with the protection of our world and our species, knew that the only true hope we had of surviving when the great enemy finally showed up, would BE the Rephaite. So it battled with her to follow the path that Shadiya eventually does follow. This is why Shadiya didn't just breed her own Rephaite. She can't. The Tree can't either. They had to find a loophole in the OTHERS' programming protocols to allow it to be done by us. So they can now act to protect the offspring, but they cannot harm them...as they are Rephaite, hence considered OTHERS to some degree.
You are precisely correct on the path following Stargate. I intend it as both parody and also as historically probably. The reason Stargate has become such a powerful sci-fi genre is because the writers/creators based much of what they did with the series[s] on archaeological evidence. If you have not read, then I suggest reading a few of www.sitchin.com/
The 12th Planet will blow your fucking mind. His subsequent books follow along the whole of our historical past minus the need to make the historians all agree. The man is hated by the Egyptian government because he's all but proven the pyramids and Sphinx predate the Egyptian dynasty. The very lack of hieroglyphics within the pyramids attest to that. Whatever they were, they were not burial chambers of any nature.
So saying I'm ripping on Stargate would be only half right. So expect similar storylines, but it isn't all intended as parody. Much of it will simply be because I'm following Sitchin's work the same as the Stargate creators did. It's like if you write a novel about World War 2, you obviously have to include Nazis, Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt, Patton, and all the others. You also have to cover the A-bomb, Pearl Harbor and all the major battles, right? So in following the historical evidence, or at least that laid out by Sitchin, you find that you end up covering pyramids, ancient aliens, cloning, and stargates. While the term "stargate" automatically brings up visions of the tv series, the term itself is taken directly from Egyptian mythos. So essentially put, yes...the Stargates of the ancient gods, may have been very real. Were they portals to other worlds? The historical evidence really does sort of lean that way. They were windows that led somewhere, and according to the Egyptians, it took them to the world of their ancient gods.
As for the great ENEMY you will soon read about, they are a species of bug like creatures which can communicate telepathically. While dumbasses as individuals, the more of them there are, the smarter they are. They all act as a parts of a single massive brain...a collective, of sorts, sort of like the Borg from Star Trek NG. Like computers...singly they are limited, but if you network a million of them together, they can accomplish amazing things. These creatures are like that, and they are driven by a single force, to breed...and in order to do that, they must spread and consume. We will learn that Mars was one of the lavish worlds that they once consumed. They process all living organic material into food...this includes plants, animals and even decaying and base material such as dirt and fungi. Essentially when they pillage a world, they turn it to dust. Then they move on to another. They have now spread all over the galaxy and when intelligent races attempt to attack them, they can destroy hordes of them...and still never make a dent in their numbers. So while wars have raged for eons against them, still...they come. In a great swathe, they circle the galaxy consuming...and so eventually they will make their way back to our solar system and lay waste to us. It is suspected that the OTHERS had the technology to destroy such a species, but what tech is located cannot be unlocked, because no species possesses the correct or full DNA of the Others in order to do so. So world after world continues to be consumed and eradicated. The INTRUDERS [the gray aliens from FALL] have discovered that the Others built a system of gates to travel from one world to the other. [Sound familiar? But again this comes from Egyptian mythos as much as Stargate] And they hit on a plan to use the gate system to attack the ENEMY with weapons of mass destruction all at one time on every world on which they reside at the time. They know they won't get them all, but should the attack succeed, they can destroy enough of them to finally have a chance at mopping up the rest of them in the aftermath. But the gates only work for the Others. So this is why the Rephaite are important. If their genetics can be folded in on themselves enough, a true Other...or at least a Rephaite with enough of their DNA, will be able to unlock the gates...the World Tree...all of the ancient technology. They are the key to destroying this ancient, all-consuming evil and saving the galaxy.
So what happened to the Others themselves? Why are they gone but their technology remains? I played around with this until I came up with the idea that this race was so advanced, that they needed only to discover new things. They were no longer concerned with enemies or the need to create food or even have day-to-day mundane lives. They were so advanced, they were bored. They had super-organic-computers that fed them, clothed them, and did everything needed. So being brilliant, they set themselves to exploring the known universe. Exploration and discovery was the one thing left for them and so off they went. World after world, they visited and left their marks...then forward, onward to the next new discovery.
I touched upon their dislike of thinking, autonomous machines...and the fact that they forcefully evolved a species on each world to serve them as a labor force. Well fearing that these abandoned species might one day evolve further and reach out to the stars themselves, they decided it might be a good idea to instill a religion of sorts, among them all. And so on each of the worlds they visit, the myths and religious legends are all quite similar. The OTHERS built a religion around themselves in the hopes that someday it might provide the lesser races with a unifying similarity - something they hoped would keep them from fighting amongst one another. But over time, the religious learning was lost and convoluted to the point of almost being nothing of what the Others taught at all. The idea was good on paper, but worthless in actuality. And as we will learn, while the intelligent races did emerge and unify to some degree, it was only in an effort to the fight off the ENEMY that threatened them all. And it becomes a rumor, that the ENEMY may have been created by the Others themselves, in an effort to force the destruction of races that were unworthy while forcing those that were, to unify to fight a common threat. So some of the species believe the Others are responsible for the Enemy while some believe the Others may be the only hope left for us. As to what really happened to them and why they disappeared, I'm not quite telling yet. There will be rumors but the truth I'm going to hold on to for a while.
