So the whole Archipelago is an impact crater.

Yes. Kind of like Chesapeake Bay, VA is a giant impact crater.

I like how you have your characters posit different plausible theories. I think this adds more depth and believably than a character somehow coming straight to the correct, though complex and non-obvious truth of a matter.

It'll be interesting to see where this goes. I'm curious how The Traveller could function as a portal to some place or time "not of this universe."

Yes, I've heard about the CMB Cold Spot and suggestions that this could be evidence of another universe colliding with ours. But does The Traveller have a solid basis in current theories?

Tyranos believes The Traveler is an extreme form of phantom energy with a great negative kinetic pressure. When released, it would almost immediately cause The Big Rip, then collapsing into a single point, and rebounding into another Big Bang.

In the Baum–Frampton model of a cyclic universe, The Big Rip wouldn't start for billions of years from now because the phantom dark energy is closer to -1. If w=-1.5 it is estimated to "rip" 22 billion years from now.

If The Traveler Event would happen almost immediately on release, you would have to assume that it is contained now. But there is a lot of weird shit going on right now on this planet. A perpetual storm, a retrograde planetary rotation, people turning into big cats, Liam's visions of the future, and gas jets that cause hallucinations (or distorting our reality?).

It's interesting that you mentioned the CMB cold spot because it has been described as "...the unmistakable imprint of another universe beyond the edge of our own." That sounds a bit like what Crystyn just said.
