The following is Forbidden Knowledge: Almost no one within the REKT universe knows these things.
Player characters do not know any of it unless specifically told about it ingame.

The Quantums are, or were, a race of beings (may comprise multiple species; this is as yet unknown) that exist(ed) in multiple universes simultaneously. Little is known about them except that the seem to be in hiding from the Dark Space - strange "void" areas of space that seems to absorb all light except when in motion, at which point they are visible in the infrared. The only known Quantum bases are in ruins; this suggests they either attempted to colonize our galaxy, but failed, or they once had a large empire that was wiped out so cleanly that there is almost no trace of their existence remaining in the cosmos. As noted in a multiverse-vision from Squidhead, it is possible they are still alive in other galaxies, and have only perished in our own. However, this is unconfirmed.

Etymology

The name was given to them, mostly as a nickname, by Tartarus scientists and researchers following their discovery. The reason for the nickname was how the quantums seemed to both exist, and not, at the same time, due to their existence being spread across multiple universes.

Population

The Quantums seem, at the very least, to be scattered and potentially in hiding in our universe. There may not be many specimens left, given that we're only just now discovering them, or they may reside primarily in alternate universes.

Science and Technology

The Quantums seem to possess technology well beyond anything Tartarus, Mimir, or any other human/alien group has currently attained. Their scale is far more massive, and their feats of engineering far more advanced. It has been shown that they make very heavy use of Anomalous Materials, and are capable of creating machines that operate in multiple universes at once. This is in addition to their apparently advanced weaponry, stasis technology, and metallurgy, as shown in the Base at Chilendorn. All of this raises the question of why there are so few, and why they seemed to be hiding from the Dark Space.
