4/6000 LEVEL 4/6000



Item #: SCP-6000

Object Class: Safe-Supernus


THEIA-23c, the first exoplanet discovered by the Foundation to have been affected by SCP-6000

Special Containment Procedures:

Current protocols for the containment of SCP-6000 consist solely of gaining as much information pertaining to the anomaly and its origin as possible. As the planets known to be affected by SCP-6000 are too far from Earth to be observed by most non-Foundation space telescopes, containment of the anomaly is currently unnecessary.

Should signs of SCP-6000 be detected on any exoplanets in closer proximity to Earth, standard procedure for the obfuscation of extrasolar celestial bodies and distribution of misinformation are to be carried out on a case-by-case basis.


SCP-6000 is a phenomenon that affects exoplanets in the Antlia II galaxy. Planets that undergo SCP-6000 (designated SCP-6000-1 instances) are generally uninhabitable and inhospitable to all forms of life prior to being affected; upon occurrence of the phenomenon, however, SCP-6000-1 instances become host to billions of spontaneously-generated species and varieties of plant and animal life. Upon emergence, organisms created by SCP-6000 rapidly evolve until one or more species develop sapience and rudimentary societal organization, at which point evolution ceases to be anomalously aided and proceeds as normal. The average time to fulfillment of this goal is one month.

Instances of SCP-6000-1 are rarely fundamentally altered to be able to support life; rather, organisms created by SCP-6000 are evolutionarily equipped to [survive and live comfortably amidst their planet's hostile environment]. Separate occurrences of SCP-6000 usually [are one week apart, though they sometimes take more time]. Due to difficulty and cost of monitoring the Antlia II galaxy, the nature of the anomaly is currently unknown.

Addendum: Instances of SCP-6000-1

Item №: SCP-6000-1/001 Instance: THEIA-23c
Prior to the occurrence of SCP-6000, SCP-6000-1/001 was barren and mostly uninhabitable due in part to high temperature (up to 200° Celsius) and near-constant bombardment by meteorites. To circumvent these factors, development of life on SCP-6000-1/001 is believed to have taken place mostly underground, though various shrubs and grasses carpet its surface. On occasion, large crustacean organisms have been sighted venturing onto the surface of the planet in what are believed to be religious rituals.
Item №: SCP-6000-1/002 Instance: JANSEN-14d
SCP-6000-1/002 is a gas giant, composed of hydrogen and helium and orbited by "rings" consisting of large fragments of ice and rock. The organisms currently populating it have adapted to life above the planet's cloud layer: several plant and animal species float using engorged gas sacs, many use wings or similar appendages to constantly passively glide, and some flightless organisms have been observed to [latch on to flying ones] and exist symbiotically.
Item №:SCP-6000-1/003 Instance: FOST89-001a
SCP-6000-1/003 is a relatively small planet, and the innermost in its solar system. Despite its lack of an atmosphere and drastically high and low temperatures, SCP-6000 culminated relatively quickly on the planet; though no plant life of any kind has been observed, the surface of the planet has been observed to constantly undulate, shift, and emit solid waste into space.
Item №: SCP-6000-1/004 Instance: THEIA-23e
SCP-6000-1/004 is the outermost planet in the THEIA 23 system, and consists of a rocky inner core surrounded by a liquid ocean, which is in turn surrounded by a layer of ice. Though the ecosystem created by SCP-6000 is likely purely aquatic, the nature of the planet prevents its observation; on occasion, however, massive tentacles have been observed momentarily breaching the ice before retracting into the ocean.
Item №: SCP-6000-1/005 Instance: HEIMDALL-32b
SCP-6000-1/005 is the only instance of SCP-6000-1 to have been observed closely by an unmanned research probe. As such, the nature of the various ecosystems and societies inhabiting it [are known really well] and can be described in detail.
The environment of SCP-6000-1/005 is similar to that of Earth, and the five sapient species observed to inhabit it resemble simian and cetacean organisms. Though on slightly differing stages of societal development, all societies observed on SCP-6000-1/005 are mainly agrarian, and have developed tools and a form of language. These societies coexist peacefully with one another, and all share the same creation myth: that a godlike being with silver skin descended from the heavens and planted the seeds of life before returning to the sky.
