“Basilisk Lizard” Fax Report (C/N)

The fax report sent to Marty Guitierrez from Dr. Richard Stone was concerning the data results from the half eaten Compsognathus material he found while on the beaches of Cabo Blanco. It goes as follows:

SUBJECT: Basiliscus amoratus with genetic anomaly (forwarded from Dr. Simpsons office)

MATERIALS: posterior segment, ? partially eaten animal

PROCEDURES PERFORMED: X ray, microscopic, immunological RTX for viral, parasitic, bacterial disease.

FINDINGS: No histologic or immunologic evidence for any communicale disease in man in this Basiliscus amoratus sample.

(signed)

Richard A. Stone, M.D., director

Guitierrez made two assumptions based on the report; that the sample had been indeed confirmed to be a Basilisk lizard, and that the absense of communicable disease meant the recent lizard bite episodes posed no serious health hazards on Costa Rica, but he still felt that the sample was a lizard species, having been driven from its home, was coming into human contact, and that the biting incidents would end once the lizards settled down.

West Indian Lilac (S/F)

Tetrazyiga bicolor (often referred to as West Indian Lilac) is a WestIndianLilacflowering plant species apart of the glory bush family, Melastomataceae. Native to the southern region of Florida and and the Carribean, it can reach a height of nearly thirty feet, and it’s flowers are usually white or pink, with oval-shaped brown fruit that often attracts birds.

During the Isla Nublar Incident, Dr. Sattler discovers that the sick Triceratops was not eating the West Indian Lilac shrubs, but was accidentally ingesting the poisonous berries while it was searching for new stones to ingest for it’s gizzard, which helps the digestion process. It would regurgitate the old, smooth stones and, while ingesting new stones, would ingest the berries in the process.

Manson crater (C/N)

The Manson impact crater, which is located near the city of Manson, Iowa, is where an asteroid or comet nucleus struck the Earth during the Cretaceous Period, approximately seventy-four million years ago. It was one of the largest known impact events to have happened in North America, and was previously thought to have led to the extinction of the dinosaurs until isotopic ages proved that it was too old.

In the recording Richard Levine given to Arby and Kelly‘s teacher, he lectures about the crater, and states that scientists now think the crater was too small by an order of magnitude, and that the current candidate is the crater near Mérida, located in the Yucatan peninsula. He incorrectly states, however, that the crater was formed sixty five million years ago, when in reality it had formed nine million years before.

Artie Bridges (S/F-TG)

Artie Bridges was a former employee of Jurassic Park, who was the head of the janitorial staff. Although not seen during the Isla Nublar Incident, he is mentioned by Dr. Laura Sorkin when she talks about her ‘radio show’, where she would hack into the system and play some choice cuts from her collection of music. According to her, he would beg her to let him sing some of his songs, saying it was his dream to be in radio.

Later on, when Billy Yoder accidentally turns off the power, when it comes back on, the system plays a recording of Artie Bridges, taped seemingly before the Isla Nublar Incident. Before the tape ends, he sings a song which is played during Oscar Morale’s battle with a Velociraptor.

Afterwards, he is not mentioned again. It is presumed that he made it off the island alive, as it’s said by Dr. Sorkin that “it sounds like he recorded this last bit of tape, and then took off.”

Beach Skin Sample Slides (C/N)

There are four slides that Elizabeth Gelman made from the tissue sample Dr. Ian Malcolm sent her. While he visited her at the  San Francisco Zoo, she presented them to him in a small private conference room. The first slide was a closeup of the remains and consisted of animal tissue in a very advanced state of necrosis, the sample measured four centimeters by six centimeters. Attached to the sample was a green plastic tag, cut by a dull knife from what she could tell.

The second slide was a microscopic view; “…a gross histologic section through the superficial epidermis.” There were patchy, ragged gaps where the postmortem necrotic change eroded the surface of the skin. On this slide the density of the chromatophores, which are the pigment bearing cells, could also be seen. The difference between melanophores and allophores could be seen on this slide as well. Elizabeth noted that it was suggestive of lacerta or amblyrhnynchus, a lizard. On the left side of the projector screen she pointed out that there was a slight rim around a cell, leading her to believe it was muscle, and that the chromatophore could open and close. So the creature could change the color of its skin like a chameleon. There was also a large oval shape with a pale center. It was the pore of a femoral scent gland, indicating that it was a male, since only male lizards have femoral glands. The white waxy substance within was still being analyzed at the time of his visit.

The third slide was a view of the subcutaneous layers, which were highly distorted from the clostridia infection that caused the gas that bloated the dead animal. The vessels were surrounded by smooth muscle fibers, which is not a characteristic of a lizard, but rather is a characteristic of warm-blooded creatures. “Not really mammalia, but perhaps avian.”

The fourth slide was a microscopic view of the small sample of blood that was extracted. Elizabeth indicated that the nucleated red cells are a characteristic of birds, not mammalia. Atypical hemoglobin, which was different in several base pairs from lizards was found. There was an aberrant white cell structure as well. While they did not have enough material to fully determine it, they suspected that the animal had a highly unusual immune system.

Professor Coffmann (C/N)

Professor Coffmann was Sarah Harding‘s old professor. Sarah described him as “one of those hard-drinking Hemingway types, with lots of affairs at home, and lots of tales of his adventures with the orangutans in Sumatra, the ring-tailed lemurs in Madagascar.” At one point in time, he visited Sarah Harding in Africa, where she took him to visit a kill site in the savannah, where he promptly passed out. She recalls that he weighed more than two hundred pounds, and she had to drag him out by the collar while the lions circled and snarled at her. She notes that it “had been a good lesson for her”.

Level Eight – The Summit (T/C)

The eighth and final level of Jurassic Park: Trespasser begins with Anne standing atop the elevator which brought her up the mountain. Ahead of her is the windmill facility along with two Tribe C Velociraptors. Anne must climb to the building near the back of the area, climb up the tipped-over dumpster, and climb up onto the roof. From there, she must walk across the platform leading to the other building’s roof, which has an entry point. Anne must climb into the building, and push the red button on the wall.

Upon pushing the button, the radio set on the table will activate, and Anne will be connected with the United States Navy. The two will have a back-and-forth conversation, and she will be told that a helicopter is coming to rescue her. Afterwards, Anne must walk out the door and head to the top of the peak. Anne must head up the hill and climb up the stairs, walk across the platform and begin walking up the mountain. At the second flight of stairs, there will be another Tribe C Velociraptor. On the stairs will be a SPAS-12. After clearing the flight of stairs, another Tribe C Velociraptor waits, near another flight of stairs.

After climbing up the hill, two Tribe C Velociraptors wait, and Anne must walk up the incline, walk across the platform and head towards the complex of stairs. After clearing the platforms. After making it to the helipad, Anne will meet the remains of a human surrounded by a cluster of weapons, and nearby will be two Tribe C Velociraptors and the alpha Velociraptor, which is twice as large as the regular raptors. After subduing them, Anne must push one of the boxes against the cluster of larger boxes, climb atop of them, jump through the gap in the fencing, walk down to the helipad, which ends the game.

Level Five – The Lab (T/C)

The fifth level of Jurassic Park: Trespasser picks up where level four left off. Anne starts off in front of the large, wooden gates that ended the Town level. Behind her is a small utility box which holds an M14 rifle and one Desert Eagle Mark VII pistol. Continuing down the path, shortly ahead is a Triceratops and one male Tyrannosaurus, which are usually seen fighting. Normally, the Tyrannosaurus is victorious but sometimes the Triceratops can kill the predator with enough luck. Regardless, Anne must make her way down the path and avoid the two dinosaurs.

Down the path is a metal fence with a closed gate, where an old bus rests next to a security point. In order to continue, Anne must enter the combination to the keypad (8101), opening the metal gates. Once inside the compound, Anne is surrounded by a variety of objects; trailers, barrels and trucks. To continue with the level, Anne must find a green InGen key-card, which will open another set of gates that leads to the Labs.

Behind a cluster of barrels is a SPAS-12 shotgun, and nearby will be a Tribe B Velociraptor. If Anne chooses to, a small utility shed not too far from where the SPAS-12 was found has a MAC-10 machine pistol inside, and she can get the weapon by using the white key-card lying near the door of the shed.

Getting closer to the larger buildings, Anne must find a yellow key-card to enter the Eastern building. She can find this key-card by entering the small building closer to the edge of the compound. Nearby will be a Tribe B Velociraptor. Once inside the shed via shooting at the wooden slats in the windows, Anne must enter the bathroom to find a yellow keycard sitting atop the toilet. Behind a cluster of large boxes will be a silenced MPS if she chooses to grab it.

Once inside the building, Anne must walk up the flight of stairs, turn left, then enter the room at the end of the hallway. Inside, a white markerboard will read: “David – Card’s is in the Atlantic, good luck!”. This indicates that Anne must reach the Atlantic shipping container close to the compound gates and find the key-card.

In order to reach the key-card, Anne must perform a series of slightly difficult acts. She must first shoot the two slats that hold up the trailer near the utility shed that held the MAC-10 machine pistol, which causes it to tilt and collide with the shed. Climbing on top of the trailer via the boxes on the side of the shed, she must leap from the trailer to the roof of the shed.

After this, she must jump from the roof to the bus stop roof, then from there on top of the bus. Then, she must walk across the wooden plank laid from the bus roof to the shipping container, leap from the first container to the next one in front of her, and then finally jump onto the next one, which is leaning against the Atlantic shipping container.

Crawling inside the container, at the bottom of the container is the green key-card, which Anne must use to open the gates to the compound leading to the Labs. After starting on the path uphill, the area will be relatively clear of enemies, save for a lone Triceratops. After this, there will be two Tribe B Velociraptors. After the two raptors, there will be no more enemies when Anne reaches the Labs.

To enter the Labs, Anne must climb on top of the boxes scattered around a black garbage container, which leads into an open window inside the building. Once inside, Anne must walk down the hallway towards the gray double-doors, which lead to a weathered staircase. Once past the doors upstairs, Anne must pick up the purple key-card, walk past the science work-area and enter the Velociraptor hatcheries, where an open window leads to the roof connecting to the second building. Anne must walk across the roof and enter the second building via a window, which is partially blocked by an air-conditioning unit.

Once inside the building, Anne must enter the room at the end of the hallway next to the stairs, then enter a second room which has a desk, a computer, and a clipboard which reads “526327”. Anne must enter the bathroom which has a red key-card atop the toilet, which is needed to access the third building. Using the purple key-card to exit the building, Anne must enter the third building across from the first building via the red key-card, then enter they key-code (526327) into the keypad to enter the double-doors.

Once past the first set of doors, Anne must use the blue key-card next to the second set of heavy double-doors to access the Cray room, where the one Cray XMP supercomputer InGen owned was held. Inside, Anne must head towards the back wall and find the poster which reads “Cray Bootup” followed by a series of colored squares. Anne must use these to push the buttons in the correct order that are on the consoles around the room, starting from the dark red button and ending at the purple button. Once the order has been created, the monitors will show the InGen logo and a computer voice will indicate that the satellite up-link is connected and that it is attempting connection to the mountain top facility.

Once this is completed, Anne must make her way towards the back of the compound where the holding pens are. Entering through the right entrance, a Tribe B Velociraptor greets her, and Anne must walk up the rebar lying against the wall and cross into the adjacent pen. Anne must climb onto the box via the barrels lying against it, cross down onto the path below, and walk towards the exit.

After departing the holding pens, Anne must walk down into the dried-up riverbed, ending the level.

Level Three – Industrial Jungle (T/C)

The third level of Jurassic Park: Trespasser begins with Anne standing behind the wall. To her right is an M-14 rifle, and ahead is a continuous path surrounded by tall dirt barriers. As Anne walks through the path, the narrowness becomes less prominent, and Anne will encounter her first enemy, a Tribe A Velociraptor. After killing the Velociraptor, Anne will find a Beretta 93-R pistol, which is lying on the ground close to the sides of the barrier.

While Anne continues to trek across the path, the path becomes filled with large rocks, and Anne will see an abandoned InGen vehicle, which is lying precariously on the edge of the barrier. If she shoots the vehicle, it will tilt and fall onto the path. Shortly ahead another Tribe A Velociraptor waits.

After subduing the Velociraptor, the path will have a large pond in the way, which Anne must swim across to continue. After clearing the pond, another Tribe A Velociraptor waits. Afterward, Anne encounters a Tribe A Velociraptor and another abandoned InGen vehicle. If Anne chooses to go inside the truck, she will find a few boxes and a Heckler & Koch HK-91 rifle.

After subduing another Tribe A Velociraptor ahead, the path will be relatively clear of enemies until Anne spots both a Tribe A and Tribe B Velociraptor, which will be prowling around above the path. After killing the two dinosaurs, Anne will approach a wider path, with much more narrow walkways and tighter spaces. Shortly ahead is a Tribe A Velociraptor.

For a short time, there will be no enemies, until Anne spots a Tribe A Velociraptor, standing precariously close to an abandoned InGen vehicle hanging warily over the ledge. Anne can shoot the vehicle, causing the car to smother and kill the Velociraptor, although sometimes this does not work, as the raptor can dodge the vehicle in time.

Afterward, the path will be clear of enemies until Anne reaches a flat, open plain. Prowling around will be two Tribe A Velociraptors and one male Tyrannosaurus. According to dialogue from Dr. Hammond, InGen had cloned seven Tyrannosaurs, making them the seven rulers of the island. He adds that despite popular belief, Tyrannosaurus was not a scavenger, where they clocked one at seventy kilometers per hour (or 43 miles per hour).

Shortly ahead lies a Parasaurolophus, walking around near the entrance to the gorge. After entering, Anne will come to a small clearing where three Tribe A Velociraptor’s will be found near some large rib cage bones (judging by the size they are either Tyrannosaurus or Brachiosaurus, as no other animal is that large), along with a few human skulls.

As Anne continues through the gorge, the walls get much taller, and the path steadily gets smaller as Anne continues, where the path continues going deeper into the ground. After crossing through a small cave, Anne enters a large, open clearing surrounded by very tall walls, four Tribe A Velociraptors, more dinosaur and human skeletons, and a crashed blue-and-white helicopter which has the words “BioSyn” on the side, the company which rivaled InGen and which employed Dennis Nedry to steal the dinosaur embryo’s in the first Jurassic Park movie.

If Anne chooses to trek onto the path carved into the gorge walls a human skeleton, presumably a BioSyn agent, next to an AK-47 rifle. After leaving the clearing, Anne will find two Tribe A Velociraptors ahead. After killing the two raptors, Anne treks around the area and walks across a fallen log, which connects the two land masses together. This can be tricky, as she can easily fall off and plummet to her death. After going across the log, Anne continues back into the normal forest terrain, where a Tribe A Velociraptor welcomes her.

Shortly ahead, a rock-climbing puzzle awaits her, which she must climb in order to pass. After completing the puzzle, Anne comes across a very large cliff, where below lies a small pond. In order to continue, Anne must jump down and land into the pond, breaking her fall. After this, Anne will find a Parasaurolophus, an Albertosaurus and two Tribe B Velociraptor. Ahead is a dried-up riverbed which serves as a path for Anne. Continuing down the path, Anne will find several boxes, an abandoned truck, and large, metal powerlines which leads to the Town.

Nearby is a small shed, and further ahead lies the wreckage of a small jet (judging from the looks it appears to be a modified Beechcraft King Air, the same plane used in Jurassic Park 3, although this is unconfirmed), which reads the words “N786G” on the tail-wings. Inside lies an AK-47 rifle with a drum magazine. Nearby the plane crash are two Tribe B Velociraptors and one Parasaurolophus. After departing the area, Dr. Hammond notes that not all the species cloned survived, and in the end only a few adjusted to the new world, indicating that there were other species cloned on Isla Sorna aside from the current roster of species.

Shortly ahead are two more Tribe B Velociraptors, and further ahead lies what appear to be a small mass of construction equipment, which is a small crane and a few boxes. Anne must climb on top of the crane and walk across the crane and enter the Town, which ends the level.

Production Note: 

In the part where Anne crushes the Velociraptor with the vehicle, there is a rock next to the area that was written by Steven Spielberg and his son Max. The idea for the jeep puzzle was apparently Steven and Max Spielberg’s idea. The rock reads:

“No thanks required. The pleasure was all ours. (signed) Steven Spielberg, Max Spielberg”.

Picture of the rock with the message in-game.

Carl Lewis (S/F-TG)

CarlLewis

Frederick “Carl” Lewis (born July 1, 1961) is an American former track and field athlete and UN Goodwill Ambassador, who has won 10 Olympic medals, including nine gold, and ten World Championships medals, including eight gold. His career spanned from 1979 when he first achieved a world ranking to 1996 when he last won an Olympic title and retired. Lewis is also an actor and has starred in numerous film and television productions. He is a vegan and attributes his best performances during 1991 to his switching to a vegan diet.

During the Isla Nublar Incident, Billy Yoder mentions to Nima Cruz after out-running the female Tyrannosaurus that somebody should tell Carl Lewis he has some training tips for him. During this period of time, Lewis was planned to attend the Fourth World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, although this event would have taken place nearly three months after the Isla Nublar Incident.

Bribri Tribe (S/F)

The Bribri people were the original inhabitants of Isla Nublar. The natives referred to themselves as the Tun-Si in their language. Translated into English, this was ‘Water Men’. Their name for Nublar was Gua’-Si. (Translate into English this was ‘Water House’ or ‘House beyond Water’)

After the Spanish discovered the Island in 1525, through the next four centuries the indigenous were displaced from the island. In 1987, just two years before Jurassic Park construction was due to begin. The Masrani corporate website gives an in-universe acknowledgement of the Bribri tribe and their contributions to the culture and history of Isla Nublar.

Nublar Tufted Deer (S/F)

The Nublar Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus nublarus) is a fictional species of

Pictured: A related species in the same genus: Elaphodus cephalophus michianus

Pictured: A related species in the same genus: Elaphodus cephalophus michianus

Deer native to Isla Nublar.  This deer is about two feet tall (.6 meters) in height, and is described as Nocturnal. However, the deer has also been observed during the daytime in the darkest parts of the Jungle canopy. The Nublar Tufted Deer is described as the most common of the species native to Isla Nublar.

Along with the rest of the native species, the Tufted Deer was a protected species. An agreement was signed in 2005 with between the Masrani company and the  Costa Rican Environmental Protection Society to ensure the safety and habitat of the indigenous wildlife of Isla Nublar.

Most intriguing though, is that the Nublar Tufted Deer is the only subspecies of the genus Elaphodus that is found outside of Eurasia. The typical distribution of species in this genus is China, Myanmar, and Afghanistan. The Nublar Tufted Deer is an anomaly in that it is the only member of its Genus located in the Americas.

Flying Buttress of Gothic Cathedrals (C/N)

A flying buttress is a specific form of buttressing most strongly associated with Gothic church architecture. The purpose of any buttress is to resist the lateral forces pushing a wall outwards (which may arise from stone vaulted ceilings or from wind-loading on roofs) by redirecting them to the ground.

In The Lost World, the flying buttress of Gothic cathedrals is one of the subjects that Richard Levine sends Arby and Kelley to Xerox papers on at various Stanford libraries.

X-Ray Crystallography (C/N)

X-ray crystallography is a tool used for identifying the atomic and molecular structure of a crystal, where the crystalline atoms cause a beam of incident X-rays to diffract into many specific directions. Measuring the angles and intensities of these diffracted beams will allow the crystallographer to produce a three-dimensional picture of the density of electrons within the crystal.

In The Lost World, X-ray crystallography is one of the subjects Richard Levine sent Arby and Kelley to to Xerox papers about at libraries at Stanford University.

Velociraptor Pen (CB-topps)

Raptor PenThe Velociraptor pen was located a short distance from the Visitor’s Center. It consisted of a large rectangular structure with a tall watchtower on one end. At one side, there was an unevenly sized door, built so that animals could be loaded in via crates. There was electric fencing all around it facing inwards, and large light posts on each corner. There was also a small set of stairs to a viewing area wherein guests might be able to look on the raptors in safety.

Before the inspection of the park, a worker was killed attempting to load a crated Velociraptor into the pen. During the official park tour however, stronger security measures were taken, as a Bull was dropped into the pit by a crane. There were plans to utilize tempered glass in reinforced steel frames on the pen so that guests might be able to see the raptors clearer.

The velociraptors caged in the pen originally numbered eight, but by the time of the park tour, infighting had reduced that number to three. The raptors attacked the feeders every time they attempted to get close, although the fence was electrified. The Velociraptors never attacked the same part of the fence twice, systematically testing the fences for weaknesses.

The Velociraptors eventually broke out of the pen after Dennis Nedry shut off the power. This indicated also that the positioning of the shed was close to the Velociraptor pen.

Brachiosaurus Pen 1 – Isla Nublar (CB-Topps)

In Isla Nublar, there was at least one open Brachiosaurus pen on the island. The pen was situated just moments away from the Jurassic Park main gate, and was moderately forested. There was also a river flowing past as well, and the track for the electric jeeps ran along the side of it. There were at least six individuals in the pen.

The Brachiosaurus pen was the first pen that Hammond showed his guests on the tour. The sight of these majestic creatures was enough to instantly convince most of the group that Jurassic Park was safe, fun, and enjoyable.

Jurassic Park Visitor’s Center (CB-Topps)

Pre Constructional Phase

During the early stages of production in Jurassic Park, the visitor’s center was already partially built. Amenities in the visitor’s center during this phase included a rough control room, which was still working with prototype equipment before construction was fully complete. The genetics labs were already working at this stage and were connected to the control room through means of a red phone. A precursor to a the Mr. DNA presentation was also shown, although it compared Jurassic Park to 1930’s pulp movies.

Completed Phase:

In it’s completed phase, the Jurassic Park visitor’s center was a central area both for tourists and park staff alike. Situated next to a small pond, it was the area where the electric cars parked in front of before embarking on their tours. It was a large building, entered through by large doors with the imprint of a fossil on them. During the first tour, the visitor’s center was nearing completion and there was only final finishing touches being added.

Exterior

The visitor’s center’s exterior appearance was of a large rotunda with a triangular thatched roof. This was bordered on both sides by similar, smaller roofs. In a semi-circle there extended out the ‘wings’ of the visitor’s  center. In addition,there was a stairway leading from the Jeep parking area to the doors.

Foyer

Inside, it was undergoing construction, with lots of boxes stacked. Workers were utilizing cranes to attempt to partially construct a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. The scene was meant to be of the Rex engaging in a duel, but it was unfinished. Next to the stairs was also a sauropod skeleton, rising up to the second level of the Foyer.

Auditorium. 

The completed Auditorium was where John Hammond or a specifically trained tour guide would lead guests through an introductory video. The presentation consisted of a projector against a curtain wherein Hammond led a minor show affecting to talk to a cloned version of himself. The finished scenes included a cartoon character ‘MR. DNA’ explaining how the cloning process worked and demonstrating how a mosquito biting a dinosaur would lead to viable DNA.

After the presentation, the seating area’s lapbars would close as the room moved sideways. The impact was to show guests the cloning area immediately after seeing the presentation.

Hatchery/Lab

The video presentation showcased computer equipment utilized in the cloning. There were large computers and gene sequencers capable of breaking down the DNA strand in minutes. It also illustrated the scientists as being able to use virtual reality displays to manually input the sequences in.

The hatchery consisted of bins containing various species of dinosaurs. It was explicitly declared that it was not a tourist area. One of the animals that hatched during the park group’s visit to Jurassic Park was a Velociraptor. The animal was promptly weighed on a nearby Dinosaur Hatchling Weighing Scale to determine its weight.

Control Room

The control room had been updated since the pre-construction phase. Its equipment consisted of multiple computer banks. Inside of the control room, it was not only possible to view video monitors of the entire park, but also operate and maintain the tour ride. John Arnold was one of the primary computer technicians for the park, alongside  Dennis Nedry.

 

Dining Area

The Visitor’s Center had two different dining areas. The first was a dining area reserved for VIP’s apparently. The room had posters and advertisements for Jurassic Park lining the walls surrounding the table. The dining room table was rectangular and long, with about five seats available. The menu for this dining area was put together by the cook, and consisted of Chilean Sea Bass.

Biosyn’s Raptor Park (CB-Topps)

Alfie and Celia were lured into an enclosed area by Dr. Beldevere who gave them the impression that she could be trusted. However, after leaving the raptors alone, it became apparent that her interactions were a stalling ruse in order to allow Biosyn to be able to erect large walls around them. Dr. Fischer remarked that the intent of these walls were so that Biosyn might have its own Jurassic Park as well. He appointed Dr. Beldevere as the headkeeper of the park as well. Biosyn placed the wall steadily so that the raptors would not notice. They also protect the area from sight with a Jungle canopy “Camouflage Cloth”. It was also defended by Biosyn agents equipped with Rocket launchers who blew up a helicopter the minute it was discovered.

The raptors soon discovered their imprisonment, and began to vent their anger. However, Dr. Beldevere and Dr. Fischer were observing them from an observation deck, and deduced that escape was impossible. Meanwhile, Dr. Beldevere and Dr. Fischer worked on their plans in a nearby tent. When Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm  discovered it, they were swiftly ambushed by a Biosyn task force arriving in Jeeps. They attempted to kill them, but then Alfie and Betty escaped Biosyn’s prison. In the aftermath, the walled enclosure was abandoned.

Gustavus’s Experimentation Shed – Isla Nublar (CB-Topps)

Gustavus maintained a private shed on Isla Nublar at the edge of a cliff. Inside the shed, he kept several species of dinosaurs in tiny cages for his own private experiments. He also maintained laboratory equipment through which he genetically altered these dinosaurs to his specifications. Inside of the shed several aborted dinosaurs could be seen on shelves. Derek and Abby broke into this shed searching for Gustavus, but discovered instead his plans for the dinosaurs. However, due to the storm, the soil of the cliff was rendered unstable, and the shed and its dinosaurs drowned along with Gustavus.

Velociraptor Field – Isla Sorna (CB-Topps)

Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 3.29.57 PMThe Velociraptor field was situated next to the temporary base camp of the InGen Hunters and separated it from the Worker Village. The field consisted of waist-length grass in which a pack of Velociraptors had made their territory. In panic from their escape of the Tyrannosaurus pair, the InGen Hunters ran into the Field. Their escape was cut short as they were hunted and killed systematically by the raptors with Ajay Sidhu being the last one of the hunters to die. Nick Van Owen discovers the remains of Ajay’s bag in the grass, which is part of the impetus for Ian Malcolm to realize that there were raptors in the Long Grass and tell the group to run.

Cathy’s Beach – Isla Sorna (CB-Topps)

Screen Shot 2014-08-03 at 11.29.32 PMCathy Bowman and her parents were vacationing in their yacht, and chose Isla Sorna as a place to stop and picnic.  They set up a picnic table and lounge chairs on the beach, accompanied by several of the boat crew. Cathy Bowman wandered from her parents, believing the island to be uninhabited. However, a flock of Compsognathus was on the beach at the time, and Cathy encountered one of them as it stepped out of a bush. Upon feeding it however, she attracted the attention of the rest of the flock. She was subsequently attacked by the flock, and was only saved by the intervention of the boat crew and her parents. Although she survived, her parents sued InGen in the wake of the incident.

June 1993 Tropical Storm (S/F)

The June 1993 Tropical cyclone was a storm that hit the island of Isla Nublar on June 11th. This occurred during the Isla Nublar Incident.

The Jurassic Park Staff wasstorm2 first notified of the tropical storm while the guided vehicular tour was starting. In a phone call from the National Weather Service game warden Robert Muldoon was told that the storm was 75 miles west of Isla Nublar. At that time it was not yet certain whether the storm would hit the island; previous storms had passed south of the island.

As the tour progressed, the staff kept a close eye on the storm, which was getting closer to the island. When the tour halted near a sick Triceratops thunder could be heard in the background, signaling that the storm was getting close. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service informed the Isla Nublar staff that the storm was still headed for Isla Nublar and had not dissipated. The cyclone now had a maximum sustained wind of 45 knots, making it a tropical storm. Not wanting to run any unnecessary risks, Ray Arnold advised Hammond to cut the tour short and continue the next day. The tour cars were sent back to the Visitor Center.

storm1While the cars were headed back for the Visitors’ Center, the storm struck the island. In addition to rain and heavy wind, the storm also brought with it giant waves that crashed into the breakwater and Isla Nublar shores.

Because the boat was not well-berthed, it was forced to depart as the storm struck the island.

Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk (S/F)

The Black Hawk helicopter is a four-bladed, twin-engine, medium lift utility helicopter manufactured in the 1970s by Sikorsky Aircraft. The UH-60A entered military service in 1979 after the Army tested it in a program in 1976 and replaced the Bell UH-1 Iroquois as the army’s choice tactical transport helicopter. Improved utility variants of the UH-60 exist and have been developed for a wide range of use. The UH-60 is also used by the U.S. Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard in addition to the U.S. Army’s use.

The helicopter was used in 2001 to rescue Dr. Alan Grant, Billy Brennan, Paul, Amanda, and Eric Kirby from Isla Sorna, InGen‘s abandoned Site B facility.

Isla Sorna: Site B (CB-Topps)

islasornacomicIsla Sorna was InGen‘s Site B facility located 200 miles off the coast of Costa Rica and served as the factory floor for the park on Isla Nublar.

History

Not much is known about the early history of Isla Sorna, save for the fact it was InGen’s factory floor for the park. Peter Ludlow, John Hammond‘s nephew, uses the opportunity of an accident that happened on Isla Sorna to a little girl (Cathy Bowman) to take control of the inGen board and company from his uncle. Ludlow promises to finish JP: San Diego by taking a team to Isla Sorna to capture dinosaurs. Ian Malcolm is summoned to lead an expedition to Isla Sorna, where he finds out Sarah Harding, his girlfriend, is already there. Ian Malcolm and his team arrive in time to save Sarah from a herd of angry Stegosaurs. Unfortunately, Ian discovers that his daughter, Kelly, has stowed away to the island, and he wants to find a way off the island only to see Ludlow’s team arrive on Site B to begin their harvest. As Ian and his team watch the hunters helplessly, Roland Tembo begins his quest to trap a male T.rex, his fee. Everything seems to be going well for the InGen Hunter team until Nick Van Owen launches a daring plan to free the dinosaurs. As the Hunter Camp is in chaos, Nick stumbles upon the Baby Rex that Roland abducted, after Ludlow unwittingly broke the animal’s leg. Nick takes the Baby Rex back to the RV to have it’s broken leg mended, but mother and father Rex show up and want their baby back. Both the hunter’s camp, from the rampaging herbivores, and the gatherer’s camps, from the angry Tyrannosaurs, are destroyed. Both groups agree to set aside their philosophical differences and try to make way to the town to summon help to escape Isla Sorna. The Tyrannosaurs followed the group and had ambushed the camp; however, Roland Tembo launched a daring plan to tranquilize the male Rex. As the hunter and gatherer teams scatter they unwittingly venture into Velociraptor territory, through the Long Grass, to go to the town to call for help. Nick makes it to the call and every one is rescued, but inGen takes their prize back to San Diego only to discover keeping it was the worse idea in the long, sad history of bad ideas, and Ludlow pays the price.

BioSyn Personnel (CB-Topps)

BioSyn had several employees under their payroll and was in direct conflict with InGen constantly. The CEO of BioSyn was Steingarten. Employees of BioSyn included Raul LopezSonya Durant, and Dodgson. BioSyn had industrial espionage teams in North and Central America that sometimes broke into other companies’ facilities to steal research and data. BioSyn even had a contact on Isla Nublar‘s Dock on the boat waiting for Dennis Nedry to deliver the stolen embryos. When BioSyn discovered the Raptors in South America they dispatched Dr. LaDonna Belvedere, Dr. Jeremiah Fischer, a construction team, and helicopter pilots to round up the Raptors and create their own park with the Raptors alone as their sole occupants.

InGen – International Genetic Technologies (CB-Topps)

International Genetic Technologies was founded by John Hammond and was later taken control of by Peter Ludlow. InGen originally constructed their park in San Diego before John Hammond relocated to Isla Nublar. Research into cloning prehistoric animals was conducted on Isla Sorna, but evidence indicates that much of that research after it was refined relocated to Isla Nublar’s facilities as Nublar has more species than Sorna. InGen eventually experienced financial turmoil following the Isla Nublar Incident and the military taking control of the island. Eventually, Hammond becomes suspicious of the military’s intentions and sends a team back to Isla Nublar to uncover the truth. All that is known is that it was regarding the green flame, and no indication as to what the green flame was was given either. InGen also frequently got into skirmishes with BioSyn, who wanted to steal InGen’s knowledge about cloning dinosaurs for their own fate. By the time of the San Diego Incident, BioSyn had disappeared from the public eye and InGen was on the verge of Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Jurassic Park/InGen Personnel (CB-Topps)

InGen employed numerous personnel for the Jurassic Park project on Isla Nublar. Ranging from construction crews for building the park, geneticists and other scientists such as Henry WuAbby Nakajima, Derek Hoyle and Dr. Gustavus in charge of cloning the dinosaurs, veterinarians such as Gerry Harding, computer technicians such as Dennis Nedry and Ray Arnold responsible for operating the park’s control systems, security forces lead by Robert Muldoon, Helicopter pilots for bringing visitors to the island, to gas-powered Jeep drivers that probably served the purpose of also being tour guides and guest relations that would welcome investors and other visitors to the island. The staff is shown to be made up of diverse people. No definite number of personnel is known though.

Hurricane Avila and Bianca (CB-Topps)

Avila was the first hurricane of the season in the years before Isla Nublar’s facilities were completed. It formed in the Atlantic and had a chance of combining with Hurricane Bianca that was forming in the Pacific and struck Isla Nublar. Bianca causes a tree holding Dilophosaurus eggs to wash from Isla Nublar to the Costa Rican mainland

Isla Nublar: Jurassic Park (CB-Topps)

Isla Nublar was purchased by InGen from Costa Rica and was located 120 miles off the west coast of the country in the Pacific Ocean. Prior to the acquisition of the island by InGen, Isla Nublar was also known as “Cloud Island”, “Cretaceous County”, “DinoDisneyLand”, and “Mesozoic Metropolis”.

History

During construction, the Island was terraformed by bulldozers and cranes to carve out areas for buildings. Jeep Wranglers were the primary mode of transportation during this period. In addition, construction trailers housed the workmen. Prior to the construction of the park Donald Gennaro was invited to the island by John Hammond to a presentation and to be introduced to park’s first inhabitant, a Tyrannosaurus.  Many months later, Dennis Nedry is hired by John Hammond to develop the computer systems of Jurassic Park and transported in a 71-c helicopter to the island.

After an altercation with Hammond over finances, Nedry makes a call to a representative of BioSyn to work on his plans of wealth. Somewhere between the months of construction and the fateful on-site inspection Hurricane Bianca hits the island and causes the removal of Dilophosaurus eggs for an incident in Costa Rica.

Presumably after the incident on the mainland a Chinese investor, his daughter, and a pet ferret comes to the island for an inspection. The dinosaurs behave erratically and the situation is monitored and controlled by the park staff. The end result is the investor is pleased with the progress the park is making in its construction.  Shortly after this another incident happens at the park this time involving rats chewing on the power cables. The incident involved the Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus, which Robert Muldoon resolved with only the loss of life of scientist Murillo due to a fatal jeep crash and a Stegosaurus the Tyrannosaurus attacked.

Eventually, and many months later, after a fatal accident involving a workman with the Velociraptor a halt to construction of the island is issued by Gennaro and InGen’s investors for an on-site safety inspection for a group of scientists to endorse or denounce the park. Drs. Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm are invited to the island by Donald Gennaro. Hammond also invites his two grandchildren, Lex and Tim along as well. The inspection itself was interrupted by Dennis Nedry as he sabotaged the park’s security systems and stole viable embryos for Dodgson and BioSyn. As the Tyrannosaur escapes from the paddock, and Grant and the kids escape it’s rampage, Dr. Ian Malcolm becomes injured, and Donald Gennaro dies. Ray Arnold, the park’s operations manager, is tasked with powering the systems back online, but soon falls prey to Velociraptors, while Ellie Sattler powers the park back online.

The mainland is contacted and the survivors; Grant, Hammond, Lex, Tim, Ellie, and Malcolm, escape the island with their lives. Meanwhile, Abby and Derek, two researchers to the Jurassic Park project stumble upon sinister experiments after Abby swipes the briefcase of Dr. Gustavus, whom was making unsanctioned clones unknown to InGen and the rest of the scientists at Jurassic Park to suit his own mad scientist dreams of hyper-intelligent dinosaurs. Abby and Derek make the mistake of getting too close to Dr. Gustavus’s experiments of enhancing the intelligence of the dinosaurs and to speed up the evolution of the dinosaurs through artificial means. Unfortunately for Dr. Gustavus, his own creations are too smart for him and get the best of him in the end along with a crafty full-grown Dilophosaurus. Abby and Derek manage to escape in the aftermath of the situation.

Aftermath

Three days after the events of the catastrophic shut down of Isla Nublar the United States Army has claimed Isla Nublar for it’s own to clean it up. Alan and Ellie have been hired by the United States Army to work as advisors while Malcolm recovers in the hospital. Hammond has taken Lex and Tim back to his estate.  Alan and Ellie are eventually captured by a hunter known as George Lawala as well as some Velociraptors. Both of which are transported to the mainland. After the Raptors escape into the wild they are temporarily captured again by BioSyn agents who want to and begin construction of their own park by trapping the Raptors in the Colombian Rainforest. Eventually the Raptor family escapes confinement and disappear into the jungle never to be heard from again. During these events, Abby and Derek return to Isla Nublar to assist in the military clean-up of the island and to serve as consultants/experts. Things are going well after Abby and Derek catch two Army Pilots snapping pictures of dinosaurs, which is in violation of the agreement they had to sign. Unfortunately for Abby the camera gets planted into her belongings and they throw her off the island, Derek unfortunately cannot plead for Abby’s innocence. Abby discovers them in a mail bag after the two pilots responsible taunt her as they’re taking her off the island. Abby throws the mail bag and the helicopter lands, and the pilots attempt to kill Abby, but Abby reacts by beating them and escaping so she and Derek can prove her innocence. The race is on for Abby and Derek to find the mail bag that will prove her innocence as the two men caught taking the photos return to General West to tell him what happened. General West, disbelieving of the men, begins his own search for Abby and Derek, while the two would-be photographers begin their own private search. When Derek and Abby find the bag, it is discovered that General West still does not believe Abby and Abby is forced to leave the island until after General West calls a Mr. Kupla, part of the “Weekly World” news paper and verifies the claim Abby had made. Abby is then cleared and allowed to stay on as a consultant.

Many months later, when an army soldier is found by a group of Fisherman off the coast of Isla Nublar John Hammond recruits Ellie, Grant, Muldoon, and his aide Edgar to head to Isla Nublar to research claims of a mysterious Green Flame. Edgar and his team, consisting of Robert Muldoon, Alan Grant, and Ellie Sattler, continue investigating Isla Nublar and come across two BioSyn members, Sonya Durant and Raul Lopez who share the same goals as Edgar’s team. After a Cearadactylus and army attack both teams suspicions have been confirmed about Isla Nublar and they agree to help each other. Edgar, Alan, Ellie, Muldoon, Sonya, and Raul make their way across Isla Nublar to find more answers about the mysterious green flame but soon discover they are being hunted by the Tyrannosaurus on the island. After wounding the Rex when it attacked Sonya they make their escape across a river. After Alan, Ellie, Muldoon, and Raul escape from the raft they are soon captured by the army. Eluding capture Sonya and Edgar hatch a plan to break into the top secret base established by the Mercenaries posing as members of the US Military to free Alan, Ellie, Muldoon, and Raul. They escape thanks to Edgar and Sonya’s efforts, but Raul is already dead, unfortunately. While the Rex and the military chases the group they become separated again and Edgar believes Sonya saw something in the Military Compound and threatens to kill her if she doesn’t tell him what the secret to the Green Flame is. She doesn’t know anything and Edgar kills her anyway believing her to not be telling the truth. The remaining members of the group, Alan, Muldoon, Ellie, and Edgar return to Hammond’s Submarine discovering the US Soldiers aren’t US Soldier and are in fact mercenaries pretending to be soldiers, but with no answers to what the Green Flame exactly is.

Eventually, enough time passes with no clear resolution to what the Green Flame was or what the military was up to, Peter Ludlow reveals that Muldoon dies and Isla Nublar is deconstructed and disposed of and InGen pays a hefty sum for it leading them to be on the verge of Chapter 11.

Transportation:

John Hammond utilized a variety of vehicles in order to get around the island. He greeted guests with at least two Electric Ford Explorers waiting at the helipad in order to transport guests to the Visitor’s Center.
