The Cataclysm was the name given to a global war which took place on an unnamed planet sometime prior to 2376. This conflict was apparently fought with nuclear weapons, and evidence suggests chemical and biological weapons may also have been employed. The Kornak Armed Forces emerged as the victors of this conflict, though it had the effect of creating widespread illness and birth defects due to radiation and other types of poisionings. Much technology was also lost in the Cataclysm, including that for manned flight. (SCE eBook: Wounds)

(Redirected to The Cataclysm article)

From GuildWiki

The Cataclysm refers to a devastating event that destroyed the Kingdom of Orr, greatest of the human kingdoms prior to the Charr invasion.

With the Orr Charr invasion force marching toward Arah, the Orrians were confident that the Orrian army could hold back the Charr, as the Charr has already fought one war against the Ascalonian army. The Charr quickly annihilated the Orrian army, however, and proceeded toward the gates of Arah. King Reza's (then the king of Orr) royal adviser, Vizier Khilbron, ventured into the deep catacombs beneath the city of the gods and took a forbidden scroll. Reading aloud the words, he unleashed a powerful magic and caused the Cataclysm, sinking most of the Orrian peninsula and with it the Charr. The Charr never stepped within Arah, but few regard what the Vizier did that day as the right choice. It is said that what remains above the sea of the Orrian peninsula is haunted by the Undead, those that either do not understand their fate enough to move on, or those that are too attached to their former lives to let go.


Warning: The following text contains spoilers relating to the plot of Nightfall.


Questing in the Realm of Torment reveals that a demonic agent of Abaddon, the demon Razakel in the human form of Terick, tricked Vizier Khilbron into using the destructive arcane spell as Abaddon wished Arah destroyed. Other quests also explain that the Charr invasion and the Searing were all created by servants of Abaddon as justification for Vizier Khilbron to read the spell.

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

Comparable to the Permian-Triassic Extinction on Earth, the Cataclysm of Cardassia Prime is a climate shift and mass extinction event believed by Cardassian scientists to have begun as the result of global warming triggered, at its beginning, by a sharp increase in volcanic activity, which led to a serious increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere of Cardassia Prime. Increased temperature, extinctions, and desertification in some areas have been observed effects of the Cataclysm. Severe loss of farmland, especially on the continent of Hăzăk, triggered mass starvation among the Cardassian people. (Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--"Point of Divergence," "Cardassian Sunrise")

The Cataclysm in the Star Trek: Sigils and Unions continuity is not held to be a man-made phenomenon; other fanfic sources have attributed the climactic shift (which is either unnamed or goes by other names than "Cataclysm") directly to Hebitian activity.

The Cataclysm had severe social ramifications to the Cardassian (then "Hebitian") people. A poorly-organized governmental response to the people's mass suffering exacerbated the long-simmering discontent of individuals who disagreed with the religious-based government. A revolution led by Tret Akleen eventually toppled the Hebitian government and led to the establishment of the dictatorial Cardassian Union.

Star Trek: Sigils and Unions Catacombs of Oralius

In an alternate universe, Guide Yavenn Pretam helped to settle the unrest among the people, to reform the government, and influence the Castellan to find a way to move Cardassia forward. By necessity, Cardassia explained its situation and opened trade relations with its neighbors that helped sustain it as colonization efforts expanded and also helped to sustain the Cardassian homeworld that--at least, on its own--could not support its population while still in the throes of the Cataclysm.

Earth comparison

Extinction events of this sort can take millions of years to play out, with devastating effects on the affected planet. The Permian-Triassic extinction on Earth was responsible for killing almost all of Earth's therapsids, the ancestors of Earth's mammals, and the creatures most similar to the Cardassians themselves (who, while not completely identical to Earth's pre-mammalians, are referred to by xenobiologists as "therapsids").

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Cataclysm is a Predacon from the Beast Era portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Cataclysm accepts a crummy Photoshop effect.

Cataclysm is a Predacon who viciously clawed his way up Shokaract’s chain of command to become one of his elite Heralds, with his eye on becoming the Herald Maximo, second only to Shokaract himself. A great enmity exists between him and Antagony, the current Hearald Maximo, and both have attempted to undermine and eliminate the other. Cataclysm is extremely intelligent and utterly ruthless. He is the fission-brother of the Cub.

Contents

Fiction

Tales of the Beast Wars

Cataclysm nearly toppled the main resistance against Shokaract on Cybertron by infiltrating the resistance base and culling a legion of soldiers to attack the Capital with a fool-proof plan; but as Cataclysm was the head of the operation, it was all a trap that cost the resistance sixteen thousand soldiers and mortally wounded the resistance forces on the planet. Upon his ascension to a Herald of Shokaract, Cataclysm did everything in his power to usurp Antagony, but all in secret. Initially chosen to undertake the mission to Earth’s past to secure the Dark Essence of Unicron, the source of Shokaract’s power that he would --in the far future-- find to become the warlord of the galaxy, Cataclysm’s fear of time-travel cost him dearly as Antagony was chosen to go in his stead when he showed a moment’s hesitation at the plan. Furthermore, Cataclysm was forced to exterminate his fission-brother, the Cub, for his failure in the trial that would dictate the Cub's ascension to the position of Herald of Shokaract.

When Antagony did not return from ancient Earth, Cataclysm was chosen again to secure the Dark Essence. However, his travel to the past via Transwarp portal was interrupted by Windrazor, the fused form of the Cub and the Veteran, and Cataclysm was defeated, his component molecules scattered across the timestream.

When Shokaract himself journeyed to ancient Earth to secure his source of power, he brought both Antagony and Cataclysm back to life to fight the Covenant of Primus while he attempted to protect the Dark Essence from attack by Megatron. Cataclysm was destroyed yet again, this time by Apelinq and members of the Covenant, and once the Dark Essence was destroyed, he was presumably erased from time along with all that Shokaract had created.


Trivia

Looks like Freddy was wrong again.
  • Cataclysm first appeared in a promotional poster for BotCon 2000, unnamed. Many fans assumed him to be one of the convention-exclusive toys, as he was modeled after the Transmetal version of Cheetor. This was in fact an intentional red herring on the part of the organizers, and no toy of Cataclysm was ever produced.
