Usage

Item is to be stored in a 3 m by 3 m by 3 m containment room. The entrance to the room is via airlock. All personnel entering must wear a HAZMAT suit. The room is located in Base 4.
During activation of the Item, all personnel present must wear ear protective equipment.

The object is powered with a cord via a 220 V outlet. Object is to be supplied with 1 kg of iron shavings, 1 liter of anomalous waste/matter and 500 milliliters of water.

Only Sigma or Delta class personnel may enter the room. All personnel entering the containment cell are to wear hazardous material equipment. Activation of the item requires permission by Dr. ██████████.

Item may be used to produce Anti-Anomaly weapons to terminate uncooperative anomalies or anomalous threats.

Report

The object will be referred to as AA Machine or Tap of Anomaly Reduction.
The object is a box, 0.5 feet by 1 feet by 2 feet in size. The box has a tap on the front and a pressurized tank on the back. At the left side of the box is a 220 V power outlet, compatible with standard power cords in the region of discovery.

The object has visible nails holding several plates in place, making up the shell of the object. These plates are removable and can be replaced with different plates.

When in activation, the tap will begin extruding a purplish viscoelastic compound with a metal component. Measurements of the viscosity has reported a viscosity of 20,000 cps1, double of that of honey.

The anomalous material will solidify after 1 minute of exposure to the air. If the tap is not cleaned regularly, the machine will easily jam. A bucket/container is to be provided to collect the anomalous material.
Once the material has solidifed, it is fragile and brittle.
The machine infuses the material with extrauniversal antimatter via a Lorentzian traversable wormhole2 that leads to an universe known as JCR-1077. The universe JCR-1077 is filled with a balanced amount of antimatter and matter. The antimatter has different properties than mainline antimatter. The matter in JCR-1077 as a result is highly unpredictable and full of different properties.3 As such, the extrauniversal antimatter leaking out of the wormhole affects the anomalous waste, causing it to transform and begin changing properties. Due to whirring noises consistent with a blender being reported during experiments, it is likely that once the wormhole infuses the matter with extrauniversal antimatter, the blender is activated and begins swirling the mix until it has turned into the anomalous material.
The machine works on the principle that the extrauniversal antimatter has different properties than mainline antimatter.

The wormhole is consistent with readings of the area, detecting a gravitational anomaly in the machine. Furthermore, probing of the machine via the tap has found so far, an extremely complex topography caused by the extrauniversal antimatter's reactions.

The information provided is consistent with experiments and a SEPIA information document on the object.

The material may be used to produce Anti-Anomaly bullets or other weapons.
List of weapons that can be made with the Anti-Anomaly material:

  • Bullets
  • Combination of the Anti-Anomaly material and water
  • Poison
  • Powder
  • Knives

Note: List item 2 might be used in water cannons. List item 5 is only single-use, as the material is brittle.

AA Machine was discovered in a warehouse 5 kilometers south of Denton, Maryland. One month prior to the discovery, Chaos Insurgency agents had been monitoring the area for signs of SEPIA after a report claiming that there was SEPIA activity in the town. After the discovery, the Chaos Insurgency sent two fireteams to acquire the object, assuming heavy fire. A strategic plan was formulated in order to neutralize all SEPIA personnel in the area. The two fireteams attacked from the sides of the warehouse, breaching. The SEPIA personnel returned fire but were overwhelmed by the surrounding fireteams. Having nowhere to evade the fireteams, the remaining surrendered and were taken in as prisoners. The object and several SEPIA equipment were taken.
The Chaos Insurgency covered up the incident to the public, claiming the warehouse was actually a distribution center for a cartel, and that DEA agents attacked the warehouse and successfully claimed all the drugs.

List of useful items recovered in the raid:

  • Information documents regarding the object, AA Machine
  • AA Machine
  • SEPIA equipment and weapons
  • Files and communication transcripts to several SEPIA bases along with their phone numbers.
  • $500,000 worth of cash.

The SEPIA agents were questioned and then later taken into containment, with some being executed.

Appendix A

Test Log 12764-8
Dr. ██████████ authorizes the replacement of the top plate of the object with a steel-framed aluminium oxynitride window panel to view the machine's operation while it is activated. A blast-resistant scanner is also added.
Light in the bottom rear left begins bending akin to a black hole. The fuel is processed, and several explosions follow. The scanner reports "anomalous antimatter-matter reactions". The fuel turns purple and begins draining out the tap.
"Report of the item will be updated to explain the operation of the machine." Dr. ██████████.

Appendix B

Expedition Log 1077-1
Dr. ██████████ authorizes an unmanned expedition to Universe JCR-1077 via the wormhole using a small scientific probe designated as P-1077-1. Upon transport of the probe into the universe, it suffered several minor failures due to exposure to with the antimatter. After several hours of travelling, P-1077-1 encountered a void with a singular packet of matter in the void. The void was only 100 meters large, and quickly closing due to matter gas clouds surrounding it. The packet of matter in the void was shown to have highly different properties than the rest. After 7 hours, P-1077-1 ran out of fuel and self destructed in accordance with the P-1077-1 planned obsolescence section in the specification manual of P-1077-1.
"Expedition 1077-1 was very useful in learning more about the machine." Dr. ██████████.
