Cette technologie, baptisée l'œil, a été utilisée pour construire deux websites d'observation, l'un à Crossbank et l'autre à Blind Lake, grâce auxquels ils observent en grandeur nature los angeles vie se déroulant sur des planètes lointaines.
Sur le web site de Blind Lake, l'observation est centrée sur un sujet, appelé « le Homard » en raison de sa ressemblance avec ces créatures, qui vit dans une cité de niveau pré-industriel situé à fifty one années-lumière. Mais, celui-ci entame alors un pèlerinage probablement deadly, et l'armée boucle Blind Lake.

D'ores et déjà l'accès au web site de Crossbank a été, pour une raison inconnue, bloqué, puis détruit.
