Disaster had come. A tremendous power, capable of tearing the whole of Neotellus asunder, crashed upon the land like a great wave. Balbola loosed a terrifying roar, and the world trembled. He was the great beast, appearing like a comet as he collided into each new planet. The sound he unleashed scattered the winds and clouds and grounded those in flight. There were non who failed to realize the truth: The apocalypse had come.

An apocalypse, translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, i.e., a lifting of the veil or revelation, although this sense did not enter English until the 14th century. Today, it is commonly used in reference to any prophetic revelation or so-called End Time scenario, or to the end of the world in general. The word itself derived from Ancient Greek ἀποκάλυψις (apocálypsis "revelation"), from ἀπό (apó "away") and καλύπτω (kalúptō "I cover") meaning "uncovering".
