Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained in Site 19's high-value containment wing. SCP-XXXX's containment chamber is to be large enough to facilitate its continued use in Project XXXX. Under no circumstances is destructive testing of SCP-XXXX to be carried out. All testing involving SCP-XXXX must be approved by both O5-13 and O5-7.

The following destinations are banned from consideration for future exploratory missions under any circumstances:

  • P081
  • P313
  • P715

Description: SCP-XXXX is a hollow steel tube measuring approximately 13.4 meters tall and 0.8 meters wide that is capable of facilitating interstellar travel when occupied, closed, and activated. Activation is achieved by utilizing a control panel installed on its interior while the object's door is shut. This control panel consists of a numeric pad and a single green button. The number 192-303-845 is etched into the object's interior above the control panel1. SCP-XXXX is comprised entirely of mundane materials, though the control panel does not require the connection of a power source in order to function.

When any combination of 9 numbers is entered into SCP-XXXX's keypad, SCP-XXXX transports its passenger to the interior of another instance of SCP-XXXX on another planet. This begins an approximately 37 minute long period during which SCP-XXXX is unusable. All destinations have shown a capacity to support human life for a minimum of 12 hours2. Approximately 7.8% of the 923 currently explored planets possess evidence of previous civilizations which no longer exist.

SCP-XXXX has been utilized by the Foundation to facilitate exploration, with a particular focus on previously advanced civilizations. No civilizations thus observed have displayed technological advancement beyond what would be expected of human civilization in the next 200 years. Technological breakthroughs relating to more advanced civilizations have been utilized in the furtherance of this project, primary among them the ansible3 technology recovered from Planet 4354
