Biology

Axos was composed of several parts, but the most noticeable parts were the Axonite and the Axons.

Axonite

Axonite.

Axonite was the miracle element that the Axons traded with Mr. Chinn for the energy to re-fuel their ship. Axonite was a living substance and they claimed that it could be used to enlarge the size of organisms. It was sent around the world to key scientific points, where it would drain energy evenly from those points. (DW: The Claws of Axos)

Axons

Though Axons had humanoid features, they too were part of the main Axos structure. They first took the form of golden skinned humanoids, but they could also take the form of large, tentacled creatures. They were capable of morphing between various humanoid shapes and teleporting themselves and others. (DW: The Claws of Axos)

The Axons.

Strengths and Weaknesses

All the elements of Axos are unharmed by gunfire. Axos the craft however can be stunned if a certain tube is shot. All Elements of Axos can feel the pain of each other. Axons are easily destroyed by explosions.

History

Axos encountered the Master at an unknown point in time. They captured his TARDIS and kept him prisoner; he directed them toward Earth.

Following their arrival on Earth, they attempted to start a 'feeding cycle'. They met with UNIT and promised them large amounts of axonite so they could enlarge food and end world hunger. UNIT ordered worldwide distribution of Axos. The Doctor realised that the Axons planned to use the axonite on Earth to drain the planet of all its energy. The Doctor stopped them by placing Axos in a time loop. (DW: The Claws of Axos)

"Axon' [ak-son] (noun) - An axon, or nerve fiber, is the long slender part of a nerve cell that conducts electrical charges. Axons are in effect the primary transmission lines of the nervous system"
—Dictionary.com

In the I Love Bees saga, Axons were the Operator's way of communicating. She did this via audio clip files that had to be "unlocked" by "crew members" of the Apocalypso. These files can be listened to at the I Love Bees Axon Clips.

The Puzzle

Players wait at an axon.

On August 10 2004 a new white-text-in-black-box message appeared on [1], containing the enigmatic and inscrutable phrase "AXONS GO HOT" above the same countdown to August 24 that appeared on the site's main page. Beneath the black box, a two-column portrayed table containing 220 pairs of numbers that were eventually found out to be factual GPS coordinates to a given, known place.

GPS coordinates for actual pay phones spread across the United States of America. The out-of-game (OOG) site payphone-directory.org gave players a list of public phones, many of which included the address. By using another OOG site the, geocode test site returned GPS coordinates that appear to coincide exactly with the coordinates that Melissa has been posting.

Melissa used the axons as venues for voice communications to her crew. Each list of axons is divided into groups, and each group has a name, like "pqi" or "troy" or "beer." Each axon in each group had a unique GPS coordinate, and a corresponding time between 06:07 and 18:06 (PDT). Initially each group was green in color. There was also a status bar next to the group name, indicating the number of axons that Melissa wants connected.

So at a designated time, a pay phone rang at the address corresponding to the GPS coordinate. When a player picked up the phone, Melissa asked if they were there, and then complained that "damage to your hardware is making it difficult to maintain this voice." And indeed, her voice did sound very odd, like a combination of at least two separate female voices with the occasional exclamation of "I love bees!" thrown in for variety.

Next, Melissa said, "I have something important to tell you. But I'm not sure you're who I think you are." She then asked a question to verify the identity of the player. Listed below are the questions she was asking:

  • As of September 7, Melissa asked "What ship are you assigned to?" to which the correct answer was "Apocalypso."
  • As of September 14, Melissa asked "What is your captain's last name?" to which the correct answer was "Greene."
  • As of September 21, Melissa asked "What is my favorite game?" to which the correct answer was "Hide and Seek."
  • As of September 28, Melissa asked "What is my favorite song?" to which the correct answer was "Stormy Weather."
  • As of October 5, Melissa asked "What must we reveal?" to which the correct answer was "The Truth."
  • As of October 12, Melissa asked "Who is the enemy?" to which the correct answer was "The Covenant."
  • As of October 19, Melissa asked "On what colony was I created?" to which the correct answer was "Reach."
  • As of October 26, Melissa asked "What insect do I hate the most?" to which the correct answer was "Bees."

If the player got the answer wrong, Melissa told them that they were not meant to hear this, and instructed them to "purge the contents of your chatter." Then an endless, spooky repetition of "I love bees!" played until someone hung up the phone.

Once Melissa verified that the caller was who she thought they were, she played an audio clip. The particular clip that played is the same for each axon in any given group. The group name always had something to do with the clip -- for example, someone says "much lifting" in the clip played for an axon in the group named "much_lifting."

After the audio clip played, Melissa asked whether she should "repeat or continue?" If the player said "repeat," the audio clip was repeated until the player was brought back to the same question to repeat or continue. If the player said "continue," Melissa stated that the communication equipment that they were using was not allowing her to continue, and the phone call ends with the same "I love bees!" repetition.

Each time Melissa made a successful connection, she updated her list of axons, marking it "CONNECTED" and "AXON HOT," and she also incremented the status bar. When enough axons were activated in a group -- that is, when the status bar for that group was full -- the group color changed to orange, and the name of the group became a link to the same audio clip, so everyone could hear it.

At the top of each page containing axons was a giant status bar, keeping track of the total number of connected axons and counting down to 777. When they reached that number, live conversations between Melissa and players were triggered.

Game Over

On Nov 4, 2004, all the final axons were unlocked and then available online on the Ilovebees.com webpage. It was then that Melissa returned to her own time. You can read her farewell message.
