Initially, the academy's research consisted of interrogating Billy, the eldest pigeon in Trafalgar Square at that time. However, in order to fully understand Billy's cooing the academy was forced to turn its attention to building a mechanical translation machine. Merely 40 minutes into this new project the chief designer, Enya, pointed out that building such a machine was far beyond their capabilities.
Success was finally reached when, in 2067, the academy will have designed a time machine which allowed them access to vital pigeon linguistic data. Their search for immortality and flight still continues in the 18th century.
