**Summary:** Astronomers situated inside of the Haleakala Observatory spotted an unknown interstellar object.

**Distance:** 0.22 AU (33,000,000 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:** Originally designated as a comet. C/2017 U1.

10/20/2017 @ 02:01am (UTC)

**Summary:** Astronomers come to the conclusion that it is the first interstellar object to visit the Solar System. They note irregularities in its movement through space; specifically, pointing to the object's trajectory as it tumbles through space.

**Distance:** 0.20 AU (30,000,000 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:** Reclassification pending as object moves rapidly through space.

10/21/2017 @ 02:49am (UTC)

**Summary:** First contact established by interstellar object. Repeating 20 second burst of radio signals is detected, deciphered (from morse code), and logged. GOC and Foundation interception relays are alerted.

**Distance:** 0.17 AU (26,000,000 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:** Reclassification pending.

**Summary:** Committee is established between GOC-NATO Coalition & Foundation representatives. Haleakala Observatory becomes a forward operating base. A new research team is established and begins augmentation on VLTs (Very Large Telescope) and two Ritchey–Chrétien telescopes stationed near the facility. Production of Apollodorus-Mk I begins. Strike Team 4277 and MTF Gamma-97 "Polaris Nail" establish an intricate disinformation campaign recontextualizing non-anomalous findings.

**Distance:** 0.15 AU (22,120,000 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:** Named ʻOumuamua by lead astronomer Robert Weryk and reclassified as A/2017 U1 (an asteroid) to explain its irregular movement to the scientific community.

**Summary:** A/2017 U1 begins delivering messages more frequently. The coordinates to SCP-4801 are revealed along with the first sighting of SCP-4801-1. Apollodorus-Mk I captures footage and awaits audio from these coordinates.

**Distance:** 0.12 AU (19,029,314 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:**A/2017 U1.

**Summary:** Apollodorus-Mk II produced specifically to transmit frequencies to SCP-4801 as per Project EC Mission Objective -02. Dialogue was established using advanced radio frequency devices and software.

**Distance:** 0.06 AU (10,000,000 km) away from Earth.

**Classification:**A/2017 U1.

Transcript-4801-β-03:

PTOLEMY R&D Engineer Harold Hawthorn, with clinical psychologist Dr. Aaron Blackmoor on standby, conducts an interview with SCP-4801.

>>>Hawthorn Greetings, this is a prerecorded message by Father--

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER. FATHER. TRANSMISSION. CLEAR.

>>>Hawthorn [away from mic] Crosses out the "leave a message" plan. Proceed with script, Blackmoor?

[brief conversation then Hawthorn returns to mic]

>>>Hawthorn The Scout, or A/2017 U1, released certain radiation waves directed at Earth. We hypothesize that they were used to scan and probe the world for information. Is this statement true or false?

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER. TRUE. SPACE. CAPABILITY. NULL.

>>>SCP-4801 QUERY. KARDASHEV. SCALE?

>>>Blackmoor [to Hawthorn] Kardashev? Hmm, maybe this is in correlation with the recent burst of ion radiation coming from the A/2017 U1.

>>>Hawthorn It is similar to how we do CT scans.

>>>Blackmoor That form of hazardless radiography... to be done at this distance on multiple households... Well, this detail, along with the entity's recent construction project, confirms it. Not only can the Scout scan us, but it can also beam back what it finds to the main entity.

>>>Hawthorn Noted. [to mic] If I am to parse that further, did you mean why is Earth incapable of sending spacevessels into space for prolonged expeditions?

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER. YES. PAST. COLLABORATION. MANY. COLONIES.

>>>Hawthorn What happened in the past? To us, your Father?

SCP-4801's transmissions become high-pitched and distorted.

>>>SCP-4801 DESPAIR. SIMULTANEOUS. ANNIHILATION. CHILDREN. SCREAMING. COLDBURSTSKIN. FIREPRESSURIZEDORGAN. BODIESFLOAT.

>>>Hawthorn Apologies, if this is a difficult topic for you--

>>>SCP-4801 RECORD. DESIRE. ANGER. WRATH. FIRE.

>>>SCP-4801 RECORD. DESIRE. ANGER. WRATH. SPLINTER. DESIRE. ANGER. WRATH. COLD.

>>>SCP-4801 RECORD. NONE.

>>>Hawthorn Let's change topic to something else. What intentions do you have with contacting Earth?

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER. UPLIFT.

>>>Hawthorn Uplift? As your scans have probably shown, humanity isn't at that point yet where we would consider becoming an interstellar civilization, even with the technological leaps presented in your creations.

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER-QUERY. UPLIFT. NEED. COLLABORATOR. EYES. REVIEW. SEND. SOL. DOCKINGSTATION?

>>>Hawthorn [to Blackmoor] A what? Does it think we're a spaceport? Only takes one of those spacecraft to wipe the planet clean. Does it know this?

>>>Blackmoor [to Hawthorne] It uses a popular metric for determining Earth's collective expertise... It's possible the entity is recycling words it scanned. Stick to "review from afar" on line 57.

>>>Hawthorn Noted. [to mic] We will attempt to do our best at critiquing these creations of yours provided you fulfill one condition: never send one of your creations directly to us. We prefer examining from afar.

>>>SCP-4801 RECORD. FATHER. ALWAYS. KNOWS. BEST.

>>>Hawthorn Lastly, have you found any other Fathers in your Scout's travels?

>>>SCP-4801 ANSWER. NONSENSE. FATHER. ONLY. FATHER. MADE. SON. WORKS. GRAND.
