The Great Book of Node is an ancient text created even before the Grox had become cyborgs and taken control of the galactic core. It tells of a legendary figure known as Node who became so powerful, he transformed into a god. His power was said to create a powerful artifact that could transform barren planets into thriving, populated worlds. Legend states that he created other artifacts but, because of their potential for epic disaster, scattered them throughout the darkest corners of the galaxy. Where the book came from is a mystery as it bears a language that is barely translatable. Many believe that the book was written by Steve, Others proclaim that Node wrote it himself and that the entire book is exaggerated, either way, the book has become the subject of a joint investigation of the book by many galactic societies.
