The United Federation of Planets, a topic often discussed. While it still to this day exists, we all know full well it's origins. Founded by representatives of Earth, Vulcan, Andoria and Tellar Prime at what is now known as Archer Plaza in San Francisco on Earth, in the year 2161.
Since then it has and always has acted as a beacon of hope and prosperity within the darkness of the galaxy. It has stood tall and strong against many tests over the centuries however no one ever speaks of the Precursor Theory, that is what this document was created for, to explain the theories brought about by the Lexicon of Valholl.
Let us start with the lexicon itself. It was discovered in 2387 shortly after the Hobus Supernova event. While the name lexicon would give some the impression it is little more than a small device, it is in fact, roughly the size of a Class XII Computer Core commonly used on Ancient Sovereign Class Starships. The device was composed of solid Neutronium, or at least the first 2 inches were. Keeping the device safe from harm.
The device remained in storage at the Museum of Galactic History on Vulcan until 2409 during the settlement of New Romulus by the Romulan Republic (See entry 2409/Mol'Rihan/Republic Foundation for more details). The device was moved here following the discovery of technology similar in design by archeological teams uncovering ancient Dewan and Iconian ruins. It was here that the device was then moved to a secure facility within the Federation and examined constantly as it was believed it was possibly an Iconian data storage device or computer.
In 2410 the device was found to have been created by a separate species but the technology was so beyond even the Iconians and the security features to keep it locked eluded them to the point the Iconians simply gave up on it, as did many races after them and possibly before them too. In 2410 the device was accidentally unlocked by one Lieutenant Commander Mathew Pierce, Grandson of Captain Robert Isaiah Peirce, whom mysteriously died in the 23rd century and never met his daughter Amelia Pierce or his unborn son of no name (See datafile SFMedical/Pierce, Gloria Emmaline/Unnamed Lost Child for further details on recorded pregnancy of twins and later delivery of only one infant).
The device was unlocked as the Lieutenant Commander in question was guarding the device when he accidentally cut his hand whilst touching the rough neutronium surface. (See Attached Video File-1A). As his blood was absorbed a genetic locking device was triggered, thus unlocking the device. As the device glowed green it projected an image of a woman. Blue skin, approximately six feet in height, head tendrils, blue eyes, apparently 24 to 26 years of age wearing a white dress, diamond necklace, tiara and gold cosmetics or tattoos adorning her eyes and lips.
Due to limitations of Universal Translators of the period, it took severals weeks for linguists, body language specialists, behavioural analysts, psychologists, profilers and computer science specialists to provide an accurate translation of the message.
If you are viewing this then either you are Walter and thus our plan has failed. Or you are some relation of his through his sister Amelia. If the latter is true, then our plan has succeeded. Or possibly not. However I have programmed the AI of this message towards the latter half to be able to determine this after I have finished my message.
So yes. Where do I begin? Beginnings and Ends all meet at some point, come full circle. It makes a new beginning somewhat hard to explain yet easy to carry out. I understand that everything within this will seem extremely confusing, impossible and probably even.. as Walter would put it "Stark raving mad". I guess I could start with a name. But which one?
I am, or by the time anyone sees this, I was Freya Vor. I was a member of the Valkyr Intelligence Agency. I was assigned to the Normandy as Elizabeth McDougan. A Name chosen to provide some comfort to Mr Pierce, one he would not obviously remember but his subconscious should recognise as a name of a friend. The name of his nanny on the USS Odyssey.
My mission was to observe and guide a human displaced in time and space go from a strange phenomenon, to the greatest warrior against the darkness the Triad has ever known

The Valkyr female was apparently 485 years of age prior to the end of the previous cycle of galactic life. According to the data provided, The Q, a species of "Ascended" Beings which have been known to this cycle has troublesome, dangerous and uncaring of moral life, were and still are in fact, caretakers of the cycle. Tasked with testing races to determine their alignment position when the time comes for the new cycle and to ultimately battle the darkness that has consumed each universe prior to the current.
The device spoke of Alien civilisations whom eventually formed the basis for many Earth civilisations and parallels amongst other races, such as the Romulans. Olympians, Asgard, Valkyr, Suulurian, Perisian, Osirians, Legion etc. Each eventually effected some in our galaxy. The Norse, Sumerians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Romulans, Klingons, Bajorans.
Eventually a holographic projection showed a final battle, called the Battle of the Gods it was between the Q, Valkyr, Suulurians and the Darkness, as the younger races battled against the Thrawls of this darkness, an Alliance of Olympians, Ed'Nari, Osirians, Minotaur against an onslaught of Perisian's.
