Terramar the seapony hippogriff guy finds himself in Baltimore Maryland looking out at what the Ponies and hippogriffs call the land on the other side.
The land on the Otherside is what the hippogriffs and ponies refer to the land of the human world.
Dan meanwhile refers to the human world as the Port of Baltimore.
Terramar and his sister Sliverstream along with their mom Oceanflow don't leave the cruise ship while it is docked in Baltimore to avoid getting into trouble.
Terramar meanwhile finds looking at the human world to be quite strange with how many things in the human world are made out of metal and how their are strange lights all over the place.
The thing Sliverstream and Princess Skystar are impressed about is the river of headlights coming from a flowing river of four wheeled creatures called cars and trucks driving down a eight line wide highway.
Terramar meanwhile asks his human friend Dan about what he is looking at.
Dan said, "Well the tall white tower with smoke coming out of it is the Baltimore Trash Incinerator power plant were 250,000 tons of trash are burned to make electricity to run the lights.
Sliverstream that river of cars is Interstate 95 if you drive south down it you will reach other highways like it that will take you to the United States Capital City of Washington DC. If you dive north on Interstate 95 it will take you to New Jersey and New York City.
But if you notice that the road dispears under the sea that is due to the highway running though a system of undersea tunnels under a 100 feet under Baltimore Harbor to get to the other side.
Those group of ships and warehouses are ocean going cable laying ships that lay the thick black cables that you sea ponies see on the bottom of the sea."
Terramar said, "What are those black cables used for if you humans spend so much time building them?"
Dan said, "The cables are used for humans to make phone calls with one another from around the human world."
Terramar said, "Well that sounds neat."
As the kitbash between Earth and Equestria was happening in random unpredictable phases merging the two worlds into one super earth.
The first man made thing to suffer from the kitbash was the human Earth's vast system of undersea cables that linked up Europe to the United States.
The sea cables were a system that had been growing since the 1860's and by the 2020's a lot of the internet and TV and phone systems depended on them.
Such as when the portal between Earth and Equestria would grow it would teleport a chunk of ocean floor away and the section of undersea cable that ran on the ocean floor along with it.
The kitbash also causes the distnaces some of the cables would have to travel grow by a factor of 20.
It was not uncommon to have a kitbash worm hole open up devour up a chunk of ocean floor. Then another portal called a kitbash opens up 5,000 miles on the other side of Equestria which opens up a 5,000 mile gap between sections of Transatlantic cable.
The cable laying ships had been bushy sailing in and out of these kitbash portals lying as much cable as they could to extend the cable system to relink the cut up links.
But now the question was soon coming up should we link some of the pony cities like Manehattan into this cable system or not?"
