The Dark Territory is an undefined region of the Island. It is notable for being the home of the Black Rock, Rousseau's camp, and where the Monster is highly active. Its location is several hours somewhere northeast of the survivors' camp.


Territory's name

This region was apparently named by Danielle Rousseau, who called it the "Territoire Foncé". On her map she labels it "L'ENDROIT LE PLUS DANGEREUX" (Translated: "The most dangerous place"). ("Whatever the Case May Be").



The Black Rock

Main article: Black Rock

Danielle Rousseau takes the survivors into the Dark Territory to retrieve dynamite from the Black Rock, a ship that is located unusually deep in the Island's jungle. ("Exodus, Part 1")

The Monster

Main articles: The Monster and Blast door map

The Monster appears to be highly active in this region; it attacked the survivors during their mission to retrieve dynamite from the Black Rock, nearly pulling Locke underground. ("Exodus, Part 2")

The blast door map states contains the phrase, "Primary nexus of Cerberus related activity", in close proximity to the Black Rock. ("Lockdown") Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof confirmed that "Cerberus" is an alias for the the Monster at Comic Con 2007's Lost panel.

The Temple

Main article: The Temple

Rousseau claims that Montand lost his arm in the Dark Territory ("Exodus, Part 1"). Jin sees Montand lose his arm at the Temple ("This Place Is Death"). Thus, the Temple must be within the Dark Territory. Robert also later claims that the Monster is a security system guarding the Temple, and the Monster does indeed pull Montand inside the Temple. This all supports the evidence that the Monster is more active in the Dark Territory region as it uses the Temple as some kind of base.

Before the crash

The Dark Territory is where Danielle Rousseau's science expedition first encountered the Others. Also according to Rousseau this is where her teammates became infected with the Sickness. One member of Rousseau's team, Montand, lost his arm in the Dark Territory after it was ripped off by the Smoke Monster. The Temple is located inside of the Dark Territory. ("This Place Is Death").

After the crash

Locke and Sawyer outside the Black Rock

The survivors of Flight 815 are known to have visited the Dark Territory on two specific occasions, both times to visit the Black Rock. The size and boundaries of the Dark Territory are unknown, so it is quite possible the survivors may have passed through the region on other occasions.

Season One (Day 44)

Season Three (Days 88-89)

Locke led Sawyer to the Black Rock in the Dark Territory in order to manipulate him into killing Anthony Cooper. ("The Brig")

Season Five

The science expedition was heading towards the radio tower, led by Jin, when Nadine went missing. The group searched for her in the Dark Territory, and encountered the Monster. The Monster dragged Montand to a temple, and attempted to pull him inside of a cerberus vent. The science crew tried to pull him back, but the Monster ripped off one of his arms, succeeding in dragging Montand into the vent. ("This Place Is Death")

Dark Territory is a Star Trek-based fan fiction series that takes place in the late 24th century created by Darkush. Dark Territory encompasses a large cast of characters and many settings for its adventures, but chief among the Dark Territory characters are Captain Terrence S. Glover and the crew of the Prometheus-class starship, USS Aegis. So far, the primary focus of the series has been the immediate post-Dominion War period. Dark Territory is a hard PG-13 series that often delves into adult subject matter. (Babylon 5, Space Above and Beyond, and new Battlestar Galactica are also heavy influences.)
