About Derelict Podcast

Eleven years ago, in the year 2170, an energy company found something unexpected while surveying Earth's ocean floor:

What could only be described as a giant door, inset into the bottom of the ocean. Almost two thousand feet in diameter, designed to be almost imperceptible visually, and with no clear means of being opened. The massive artifact carbon dated to seven million years old, and the only clue to its nature was a strange signal that somehow broadcasted from it every ten seconds.

It became known as the Vault. A gigantic enigma, buried and forgotten...nineteen thousand feet down.

Just the kind of thing that would interest the galaxy's most powerful corporation, Maas-Dorian. To study the artifact, the company built a massive, self-contained, secret laboratory base surrounding it. That base was named Fathom. It's objective: unlock the secrets of the artifact and discover what it holds.

A group of scientists, engineers, and workers have been working on that task for almost a year, but with little to show for it. The Vault has yet to give up its secrets, and their employers are beginning to lose patience. Add to that, some on the base say they hear...voices. Inside the signal the Vault is broadcasting. Hundreds of them. Thousands. Whispering and chittering of a desire to be let out...

But none of it holds sway over a corporation interested only in power and profit, even if it knows all too well that some mysteries should remain buried. And that some doors should never be opened....

FATHOM is a narrative podcast experience from award winning science fiction author J. Barton Mitchell, and follows a host of unlikely characters trying to unlock a frightening mystery at the bottom of the ocean. It is the prequel to the story that began in the podcast DERELICT.
