I don't know if this picture was published or not and have wondered if it was intended for a particular story. NZV Gentek would be a clue but I haven't found any mention on the web specifically. The NZ I assume stands for New Zealand but it could be something else entirely!


  1. Nexus Monitor - in latin nexus means connection, center. Event horizon means that it should have some relation to black holes. On other hand, term nexus also deals with processes between living cells, so GENTEK may be related to genes or something. Puzzling picture. Elaborated front panel which can be video editing gear as well as piece of kit for radio astronomy.

  2. Hi Pinwizz
    Some interesting observations and I agree a very puzzling picture. There's the suggestion of a futuristic television studio, the staff have military style uniform, then there's the event horizon panel and the biology living cell angle… it is indeed puzzling? I really like your point of the "Connection Centre" and it now reminds me of the Heavy Metal story "Object" with all the transmitted communication going on between people. Perhaps this might have been part of that story because it also suggests some sort of black hole or "heavy grav body" and the style of drawing would go well.
