From the blackest depths of silent space, waking from a hibernation that's lasted eons, VCV steadily descend toward our galaxy, observing it as a somber spiral isolated in the middle of nothing and more nothing. Upon entering the solar system, a signal is received from Earth. Japan, to be precise. A young man named Shinobu Nemoto is jamming experimental frequencies on several dozen pieces of audio equipment in his backyard. VCV read his signals, wait, and understand. The two entities converse and agree to meet, where else but the harsh climate of Jupiter, to combine their abilities and create a message for mankind. Long hot hours are spent in atmo-suits, combining modified audio frequencies with caustic chemicals found naturally in the Jovian habitat, and etching the results into exactly one-hundred black discs with ultraviolet light. The visitors depart, their mission complete. There are no goodbyes, only quiet, patient understanding. Their languages are very different and very unimportant, but the message has been created in a new tongue. What does it mean? You might never know.
