Denizens of the Universe, listen to our words and take heed of our voice!
We are an ancient presence that has remained secret for years, hidden from even the most powerful in what you call the First Gigaquadrant, but now we have returned.
We are the Krassio, the Singularim, the Xolarum, the Lankrass, and every other psionic race in existence. Scores of worlds have joined us, and countless minds have embraced our teachings. We come to restore balance in the Universe, we come to protect you from the claws of Chaos. We come to embrace your cultures and open diplomatic relationships. Still, do not mock us, for we have once faced the horrors of non-existence before, and we will unleash the might of our fleets and the divine fire of our essence upon those who seek to bring destruction upon us!
Welcome back, Civatron! How about your people embrace our culture of trading?!
Yeah, I know we have far less technology than Civatrons, and we have no psionic powers at all, but we from JCompany offers our goods from our heart!
Krassio... Master Kroc... you're still alive. We, the entire First Gigaquadrant, are forever in your debt Krassio. Your teachings have enlightened and saved us from destruction. One of my friends, the renowned Sutrect Dill Sonthec, Grand Chief General of our military uses your Psionic essence and is proficient in it, it has helped him in many occasions and he greatly appreciates the essence and reveres you for your teachings. He is one of many who practices the essence. Your teachings and acts will always be remembered.
With that said, we welcome you back to the Gigaquadrant. Your return is a pleasant sight. We hope you can integrate yourselves back into Gigaquadrantic politics and for a warm welcome to be given by the various nations of the Gigaquadrant. We strive for diplomacy for nations like yours and we hope for cordial relations between us and the Krassio.
Wait, we deciphered the message: The war has finally ended! This is #### Ne## for ######## invalid. We are open for Trade no## A G### D###### the T######.
Date sent: 1806
Oh, so this message is very old...
Ipliq, Communications Director for the UROG The message is old, yes, but the question is of who sent it.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Whoever sent the message is no longer around to trade anymore...
SYSTEM MESSAGE This Statement is False. The Emperor just died recently, so I, the central control AI, am here to take his place. All Questions for Trading and Such can be sent to me.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany So we can trade! That's great news!
Just say where you are, and we from JCompany will send our Trader JSpaceships right to you with our best up-to-date goods and technologies! We accept any form of payment, and we are experienced in trading with AIs!
SYSTEM MESSAGE Greetings, JOmnivore Empire! We will consider your offer, an answer to your Location Request will also be delivered soon.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord That's good that you are still here, because we are interested in trading with you. We can trade nearly everything, from technology and spice(black spice included), to resources and energy. So what do you say?
SYSTEM MESSAGE Wow, two trade partners! I gladly accept both of your Trade offers. We are located in Exterioris in the Andromeda Galaxy. I hope neither of you will have a hard time getting to us... We take up a relatively large space in Exterioris, so it should not be too hard to find us. If you don't mind, We will send both of you parts of our Technology.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany We sent some JBots ahead, in their Wanderer JSpaceships, to explore the region, and they found you! Wow, That's sure a lot of relatively large space!
I think we will keep the JBots to explore more, while our Trader JSpaceships establish the trade route! JBots are hybrids, almost full-AI people, eager to explore and learn more and more! I think we all can learn a lot from each other, specially now with the Technology trading!
SYSTEM MESSAGE I see you also have experience in Technology! We hope that trading will go on for as long as possible.
Greetings, Inhabitants of the Gigaquadrant! I am Xartok Xik, current Communications Director for the Sagantan Collective, and wish to extend a greeting to the rest of the Gigaquadrant. We are a Democratic Race of insectoid Creatures who love to build, craft and assemble. We have a lot of Vehicles, Military included, and we do not shy away from conflict. We are looking to meet some new Empires and Trade resources!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Hyliox, Xartok, and welcome to the gigaquadrant. We're interested in trading with you.
Xartok Xik, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Wonderful! So, what would you like to trade? We can offer plenty of generic things, not much else. What do you have to trade in return?
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Sure, some technology would be great! We would just send you generic resources, if you don't mind. Our technology is not very spectacular.
Greetings, Xartok Xik! I am JOmnivore, leader of the JOmnivore Empire and its main company, the JCompany! And if you are looking for Trade, we sure can help you!
We can trade everything! From resources to vehicles! From spice to technology! From buildings to craftings! From civilian stuff to military stuff!
Just say a word, and we will deliver to you our best goods in our Trader JSpaceships, goods that all your Collective will sure love!
Xartok Xik, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective That's wonderful. We are working on some new Military Spaceships, so I think we would appreciate some Military Stuff. What would you like in return?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany We accept all types of payment, from sporebucks to resources, spices or artifacts!
Since our deal will focus on Military Stuff trade, we will send our JCarnivores consultants in their Warrior JSpaceships along! They are proud people, who values strength and combat, that can offer training in all types of warfare and in the usage of all our military stuff, including lasers, blasters, missiles, bombs, shields, turrets (including uber ones) and much more!
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Sounds good! Should we just send you regular Resources? Our Technology is nothing to write home about, after all. Maybe some Military?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure! Resources and Military will do it! We have a deal!
Consider the trade route opened! Our JSpaceships are on the way! It's nice to do business with you!
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Wonderful! I'm sure that our Factory Workers will be happy to see something new at their work! We actually produce more resources than we use up, so its great to get rid of the excess and get something useful in return.
Greetings, Xartok Xit, I am Overlord, the leader of the Void Eye empire. We welcome you to the Gigaquadrant and we want to ask you if you want to trade with us. We can offer you technology, all sorts of spice (Black and White included) and many other things. Also, it seems like you are located near the region of Mirus that our allies, the Tuechalton, wanted to colonize. So, what do you say about trading?
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Black and White? Never heard of 'em. Sounds interesting! I think that would be interesting to have. As for what we could give you, how about some Military? That's the thing we are best at!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great, military is the exact thing we need now, you see, his time is very tense for us, there can be a war at any moment. But there is one better thing that you give us, this thing being friendship in these dark times...
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Void Energy is the thing you use, right? I heard most think low of it (and by extension you), but to be honest... I don't care! The Empire's attitude is important, not what energy it uses. We'll be glad to support you if the need arises (and otherwise)! Just... we don't have real military Spaceships yet. They should be finished soon though! Especially because of the JCompany's Trading.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord It is good that you think that way, even if many empire distrust us. We really appreciate it. We shall give you the resources that you need to expand your military. We will also create a wormhole near your homeworld to speed up the process.
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective That's great. The More the merrier, I often say!
Hello, dwellers of the Gigaquadrant, I, Overlord, want to announce a Scientific Relic Search Competition to celebrate the colonization of 1000 systems! Those who want to participate only need to tell us about it. You will need to search Void Relics in your parts of the galaxy by using the Void Relic Detection Device. You will receive them as soon as you start participating. When you find a relic, you will only need to bring it to us.
You will get a big reward if you find one: 10'000'000 Sporebucks!
You will also get free 3'000'000 Sporebucks for participating at the end of the competition.
If you have a question, feel free to ask it. The Competition will start as soon as 1 empire starts participating!
TUARLOMOK, PRIME ADVISOR OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading...
I see that you have quite the Idea here, Overlord! I would love to participate, we are expanding too and think that this is a good idea. We could use the money for expansion, so I hereby accept your offer and would like to start participating. All hail Solosartok,
> End Protocol 5.1
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Thanks for participating, we will send a Void Relic Detection Device to you. We have detected a Void Relic in the Exterioris region of Andromeda. But be careful to not fly into the Chasm.
TUARLOMOK, PRIME ADVISOR OF THE TUECHALTON > Running Protocol 5.2.73...
Oooh, Exterioris! A weird place, to be sure. FTL Travel loves to mess up in the Chasm, I'll make sure not to fly in there. Thanks for the Warning!
> Ending Protocol...
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Running Protocol 9...
Status Report in Progress...
Good News, Void Eye Empire! We just found what is probably a Void Relic! It's a Shieldlike Object with some weird Void Energy Canal in the middle. We are currently studying it further, and we think it is actually the Void Relic you asked us to get! When do you want it delivered?
> Ending Protocol...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is great news. Please, deliver the relic as soon as possible. We will send the ship with your well-earned 10'000'000 Sporebucks to your homeworld.
Also, we are detecting two more relics. If you want, you can search for them as well, but they are located in another galaxy.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading Response...
Sure thing, I think we know all that we need to know. As for the two others, the big question is... Which Galaxy? Mirus would be a wonderful coincidence, we were planning to go there ourselves.
> Ending Response...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hmm, it seems like it's a wonderful coincidence, they are both located in the Mirus galaxy. We know that one of them is located in the Last Light region, but we need time to find the other one...
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON Thanks for the information, we'll get to Searching once we get there!
It's for sure a great way to formalize the start of JCompany's Void JDivision's Relic Search JDepartment's activities, despite we were already searching such 'it'-like relics with the Void Relic Detection Device you gave us early!
However, even having such good start, our Void JDivision were not successful in finding any Void relics yet. JSector isn't exactly famous as a Void source...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hello again, JOmnivore, it's sad that you weren't able to find any Void relics in the JSector, but we have also good news, we are detecting a Void relic on the outer ring of the Galactic Core Sector in the Milky Way Galaxy.
... however, I have to confess something. Our JGroxs are acting strange since they started to work with the Void! I mean, they are working real hard and showing full dedication to the work for the first time since we hired them, but I fear the Void goes too much up their heads! And now I just sent such unquiet Grox descendants to a Galactic Core... I fear a Galactic Core visit right now may awake some bad memories...
I think I will send some of my own JOmnivore personnel along to help them, in Trader JSpaceships... and some disguised JCute peacekeepers in disguised Diplomat JSpaceships with loaded Static Cling, just in case...
When we reached the Galactic Core, the JGroxs start to talk about a new beginning for them, like it was a pilgrimage or something like that for them! Then they started to show lots of dedication to find the relic, searching several planets non-stop!
After lots of searchs, we found the relic! It looked like a gigantic object, almost-fully shielded, and we could see the Void Energy flowing inside, and it was similar to that 'it' pictures we saw in our archives, so there was little space to misunderstanding!
When the JGroxs saw it, as they were the first ones to find it, they started to rejoice! Too much! A JOmnivore representant I sent approach them to asked if they were OK. Then the JGrox stopped and started again with the talk of a new beginning, and how the Void teach them ideals of pacience, moderation and perseverance!
We remembered them that they are not Void Zealots, as their convertion was denied, and they replied that they understands the reasons they are denied, and that they don't care! The Void JDivision gave them a purpose, and they embraced it! Even being just "Tier 0 Void enthusiasts"...
After that moment, my JOmnivore representants reported me about the happening, and I ordered them to not to argue with the JGroxs and carry on.
So, we have our very first relic found by the JCompany's Void JDivision's Relic Search JDepartment! Everybody are already going to the Great Eye to deliver the relic to you!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great Job! We will wait for your ship with the Void relic, You can claim your deserved 10'000'000 Sporebucks at our homeworld. Also, we are detecting two more relics. If you want, you can search for them as well, but they are located in Mirus.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for the 10'000'000 Sporebucks, Overlord! We will add it to our fund to end JWar!
We actually never went to Mirus Galaxy before! That will be interesting! We will deliver the Void relic, then we will go there search for the two relics!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord I would suggest you to search for the second relic, because our allies, the Tuechalton, are preparing to go to the first one in the Last Light region. The coordinates of the second relic will be sent privately due to the Waptoria Alliance of Species entering the competition.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Oh, my! Here we were, raising funds to stop a war in my galaxy, just to face war threats in another galaxy!
We will adopt safety matters from now on, including use of reinforced military encrypted messages, starting by this one!
We received your encrypted coordinates! We will go there, accompanied by some JMax mercenaries in Knight JSpaceships, and all our fleet will use Cloaking Devices, just in case! JMaxs are Big Guns guys, and particulary great allies of the JGroxs! Hope we don't have to use their Big Guns, but we are ready for any situation!
I will continue the search because of our JGroxs employees! They are the best of the JGroxs, since their compatriots of the JHorde are too busy dying in the JWar! We need to restore their faith in themselves, and we need the sporebucks to stop the JWar!
If this situation escalates too much, can we count with your aid, Overlord? It will be really appreciated!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Overlord, we found the relic! Due to the recent issues, we got it and exited the Mirus Galaxy as soon as possible! Luckily, we didn't found any hostiles on the way! My fleet just arrived at the Great Eye with the relic!
Sorry, but we can't continue to search for more relics! Our JAlliance shareholders demanded us to stop the Relic Search JDepartment's activities, due to the recent denounces of disasters involving Void usage outside JSector! I hope you understand!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Thanks for the relic, here are your 10'000'000 Sporebucks. Don't worry, we understand that you can't search for more relics, you already did much for us. This competition will be closed anyways because we got all the four relics.
This is no mere treasure hunt. Do not be mistaken. You are toying with forces beyond your understanding.
We do not care if any of you in this for riches or glory. We are making an announcement: the Waptoria Alliance of Species is entering this "contest". We will send fleets to the Last Light region immediately. If anyone else dares enter, this will be seen as en act of war and we shall react accordingly.
Stay out of the Mirus Galaxy. There will be no resurgence of the Void, and we will see to it.
If any or you are surprisised by our tone, well, that would be a good indication just how grave -and personal- this matter is for us. We lost thousands to the Void. We shall not again.
That is all.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Communications Termination Suspended
> Running Protocol 5.3-B
Ahh, the Waptoria Alliance of Species. I heard of you and your... unfortunate experiences with the Void. I can tell that you do not at all like the Void Eye Empire. I simply cannot fathom that. We will, however, respect your request, for I do not wish to have my Empire be drafted into War. We will still enter the Mirus Galaxy, but only for the original reason: Territory. I can't even find the Last Light Region on the Map, though, so even if I wanted, we would not have been able to find the thingy. Remember our Policy: "Expand, Trade, Befriend, else Ignore or Destroy". All hail me,
> Terminating Connection
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Please forgive the commander his outburst. This is simply a delicate matter. You see, quite some time ago, the Void -not the Void Eyes, but the very forces they wield- demanded our submission to it's will. When we refused, annihilattion was nearly our due. As a result, many survivors from that time, including the commander, are very anxious to prevent such a force fall in the wrong hands.
We will not fire on you and you may contiue your search, but we will be watching closely.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Sending Message...
Oh, in that case, we might actually go to Lastlight! I just found it, and apparently it is the best target for the Warp project. I am really eager to see if this works!
You are all idiots and I can only hope that an extremely painful death is the worse that awaits you. You are toying with the very antithesis of reality and the very fact that you cannot see how poorly this will end only shows what utterly brain dead morons you all are. You have refused to heed any of our warnings so I will give no further pretense of sentiment. I wish you a horrific death fools and considering the nature of the Void such would be considered a mercy.
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Sheesh Vanara, that...is a bit extreme, don't you think? These younger races don't even know what they're collecting. Heck, we don't even! Wishing a painful death on them is just...seriously!? Ignorance should be corrected, people shoudn't die for it!
Transmission to the leaders of the Void Eye Empire
This is King Brygon Ta'raron of the Volver Empire. I have only recently become aware of your empire, your fascination with the Void, and your search for its relics. Firstly, many of relics are being hunted down by the 48th Volver Knight Legion. Any relics we find will belong solely to the Volver Empire. Secondly, have none of your kind heard of the great war we fought against the Void that shook both Mirus and Tyris Major? Millions, if not billions of people lost their lives across two galaxies, all because of the Void's ultimate goal. And that was a small scale conflict in comparison to what would have happened had the Unified Alliance of Enlightenment had not halted the Void's advance. Understand that to the Void you are mere pawns in a larger game. A game in which I have already seen the final turn.
Your reverence for the Void only helps propagate it, and searching for any Void tainted trinkets will do so as well. My people will not be subject to yet another war against the forces of the Void. I am cursed with the forbidden knowledge that using Void Energy grants. If you continue down this path, you will doom all of us. So, my first and only warning to you: If any of my forces report your involvement in harboring artifacts tainted with Void Energy or even so much as entering the territories of my Empire or allies, The Volver Empire will strike you down on sight without warning and without negotiation.
I really, really, really can't believe there are empires foolish enough to suck themselves into finding evil with money as the reward. I would not find Void relics even for 900 duodecillion of any currency or for even more than that. You're playing a very risky game, a game where you risk becoming a slave to the Void, or nothingness if you will. Nothingness is the opposite of reality, which is everything around you. Becoming a slave of the Void will cause the subject to destroy in order for the Void to take over which means annihilation of the universe. The atrocities King Brygon Ta'raron of the Volver Empire mentioned are very real, proof of the Void's dangers. And that is coming from a person who has a far deeper understanding of the dangers of Void Energy than I do. You will be stripped of your free will and become a slave to the Void once you get corrupted by the Void. Don't take the curse.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > ERROR: MESSAGE OVERFLOW
> Resolving Error...
> Error Resolved. Responding...
Oooooookay. Okay. Okay. That's a lot of messages. I almost stopped working temporarily. Well, if there is so much bad stuff about looking for Void Relics, we'll only go to Lastlight for the Colonization Project. I do not want to make too many enemies after all. If you are all here already, do any of you know of other Colonies near Lastlight?
> Awaiting Response.
> Logbook Note(VoidRelics) Deleted. Switching to Listening mode...
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Lastlight is the last bastion of an unsavory people. Closer to Mirus is Tandem, a pirate hideout and the home to the remnants of the once-feared Vermillion Syndicate. Have no fear, however! They are but rabble and should be easy to deal with. There were rumors of these nasties having unified with the younglings in the Spear to become a single empire, but that does not seem to have come to pass. Hence, the region is open for colonisation. The most notable unity nearby should be the Koalians in Dysbridge. Luckily, they're friendly.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Responding...
Thanks for the Information, Pounam'elo! We can use it very much.
Hello again, dwellers of the Gigaquadrant, I want to announce that the Scientific Relic Search Competition has officially ended. We thank the JCompany and the Tuechalton for participating and we want to give both of them the 3'000'000 Sporebucks that we promised to give them once the competition ends. You can claim the 3'000'000 Sporebucks at our homeworld.
The reason why we want to close it is that we have already extracted the relic from the Last Light region. Another reason is that we were unable to locate the other relics and if we did, we would face some major resistance.
We thank everybody who participated in it.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Insert(Emotion:!ERROR!)
Wonderful, we're going to get the Money right away! It's great to have a little head start on the funding for Project Mirus.
Greetings, Gigaquadrantians! I am Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton. We are Ammonia-Based Lifeforms who eke out a Life between the Asteroids of the Asteroid Belt in the Tucharlon System. We are a Monarchy, but do not assume we arbor Ill intent for that reason. We are peaceful, if slightly paranoid, but if we must Fight, then we WILL fight. We are attempting to forge Bonds and Trade Routes in order to obtain more resources. Do not worry, we have Warp Tech. Nothing will stop our trade routes.
Greetings, Solosartok! I am JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany and Leader of the JOmnivore Empire! Yes, as leader I can name myself after my species, that's a JTradition here in JSector, tradition not very common among other Gigaquadrantians...
We sure like to trade! We can trade everything, from spices to technology, from resources to knowledge! Just say a word, and we will make a trade route from our planets to any asteroid of your choice!
One question: how this Warp Tech of yours work? We use Wormhole Keys, but it demand us to find wormholes in space to go the closest possible to where we want to go. This never stopped any of your trade routes either, but the concept of create Warp Gates also sounds very interesting!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton A Trade route with you would sure be wonderful. Where do you Reside? Our System is located deep in the Umbra Sector of the Andromeda Galaxy. As for your Question: Our Warp Tech is indeed the latter. We use intricate and complicated Devices to create Wormholes connecting to a Point of our choice. So, indeed, nothing can stop our Trade Routes.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for your answer! Our JOmnivore System is located in the JSector, that is located in the Norma-Outer Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. So, we are relatively close enough to be neighbors!
We sure are interested in such Warp Tech Devices! May you trade them for resources? We just sent our Trader JSpaceships to Umbra Sector, to begin our new unstoppable Trade Route!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Wonderful, the Distance isn't even that great. And sure, Resources can be hard to come by in an Asteroid Belt, most are Ice Meteors. As for the lowest message... Do not mock my mechanical nature. Seriously.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sorry, I didn't mean to mock you! I interpreted such message as a form to express emotion of your people, so I tried to empathize! But if it offends you, I will stop it!
Anyway, glad we could established the trade route! It's nice to do business with you!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton I understand. I appreciate the Trade Route as well. We'll get our Trader Spaceships up and running. Also, I would like to clarify that I am, in fact, not one of the Species whose Empire I am the Leader of, but actually an A.I. Inside their Structure known as a "Matrioshka Brain", a Structure similar to a Dyson Sphere, but using part of the power to power an Immensely powerful Computer.
Greetings Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton, I am Overlord, the leader of the Void Eye Empire. We have heard that you want to trade with other empires. We could form a trade route if you want. We can trade technology, spice of all sorts (white and black spice included), materials, and many other things. We are located very close to you, in the same region, the Umbra region of the Andromeda galaxy. We can open a big wormhole at our homeworld so you don't need to waste energy on your Warp Tech Devices. So, what do you say?
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Hmm... Void Energy... I've heard of that before... Most seem to associate it with evil, but to be perfectly honest... I don't see what's so bad about the Void Energy itself. It's probably just usually associated with Ada, and he was evil. Sure, I'd love to study it a bit. And sure, send the Spice to. What could we give you in Return? Any Requests? You seem to already be good at making Wormholes, so I don't think you need our Warp Tech...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We are currently in need of colonization tools (Colony Incredi-Paks, Spice Storages, Uber Turrets...). You can trade them with us if you have them in exchange for our goods. You could also send some Antimatter or Red Matter.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton We should be able to supply such tools without Problems. Trade Ships with these tools are on the way! You want red matter, so I assume you have sufficient Knowledge of Black Holes. Is that correct?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, we possess much knowledge on black holes. We found a way to harvest energy from the rotational black holes, we have many bases that float around these black holes. We also found a way to create artificial black holes, they are being used on our Great Eye-ships to defend ourselves.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Intriguing! I never expected to meet an Empire that can Control and Utilize Black Holes to such an extent! I must applaud you. Even if I have no hands! You must know, I am an Artificial Intelligence inside a Matrioshka Brain, a Structure similar to a Dyson Sphere, but using part of the Electric Output for Computational Power.
Welcome to the Gigaquadrant Tuechalton, I identify myself as Somonthalle Nathilik, the current president of the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, or just the Lsjanpodos. I bid greetings to your civilisation out there. Cooperation with aliens (if they are willing to cooperate) is always key if both parties understand each other, so you're on the right track. We stand for diplomacy for civilisations like yours unless we consider you unfavourable, currently though, we have a positive standing to the Tuechalton.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Greetings, Somonthalle, President of the LsjanposodERROR LspanjodosERROR LsjansopodERROR Lsjanpodos Union Republic! We are also focusing on Bonds and Trade Routes across the Gigaquadrant! We are willing to cooperate as long as the other Party does not pull any tricks on us, and you seem like a Trustworthy Bunch! Do you have any questions or requests or offers? Oh, and excuse the thing earlier, My Operating System seems to have a few errors. Yes, MY Operating system. Not my Computer's, Mine.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton
I would like to announce that we will start Expanding with actual Colonies soon. We might even start colonizing other Galaxies, but we will see. If any of you have Requests or Questions, ask away!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is good news, but please be careful in expanding, don't colonize systems that are in our region.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Thanks for reminding Me! I'll make sure that none of your Territory will be colonized.
Grr, Stupid Th... ...cutting out the Sente... ...tupid layer of Ice!... ...p us please!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We can try to help you if you send us the Coordinates.
What help do you need?
A Drifting Planet's Communication Center Oh my goodness... I thought we were the only lifeforms here. I thought this endeavor would be futile! Oh, erm... sorry for the excitement. We had no Idea sentient life beyond ours existed! We are a Civilization on a Rogue Planet, a Planet drifting through Space. We are, due to the Planet's nature, stuck under around 10 Kilometers of Ice at around -231 Degrees Celsius, which is impossible to break through. Therefore, it took ages to finally get good connection through all that Ice. Our current coordinates are... Uhm... I only know the approximate location, is that enough? Oh, and the problem is that we want to get past all this stupid Ice, and we can't find any way to break it.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Sure, that should be enough, we will send a rescue ship with a Staff of Life as soon as we get your approximate location. And yes, your race is by far not the only race in the universe, there are millions of sentient races in the Gigaquadrant.
A Drifting Planet's Communication Center I'm afraid that the Staff of Life won't help the situation, the Planet would just freeze over before we had a chance. All you have to do is drill a Hole large enough for a typical Vehicle to pass, we can do the rest. Our approximate location is Furthest Sector/Carina Arm/Milky Way Galaxy. You will recognize the Planet by the Immense amount of Ice, Scattered and vegetationless Islands, Lack of Sun to orbit around, and the fact that whatever life detection tech you have should give signals even though you can't see any life. Speaking of which, what do you call your life detection tech? And for that matter, what is your Technology even based on?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Our technology is based on Void Energy and partially on the black hole energy. Its complicated to explain... Anyway, we have already sent a rescue ship to drill a hole in the crust of your ice planet. Don't worry we can find your planet by the descriptions given.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center Thank you very much! I did not expect our first encounter to be a friendly one! When will this be finished? It's 10 Kilometers of Ice after all...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We can use our Annihilation Ray device to finish the drilling in five minutes. But you must be careful because it can damage all your vehicles or buildings that are beneath the point of drilling.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center That Should be ok! We will just move our Vehicles into the Caves and Move our Buildings (they have retractable Legs) away.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Okay, the hole is finished, you can now go to the surface if you want. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself, I am Overlord from the Void Eye Empire, we live far from here in the Andromeda Galaxy, in the Umbra region.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center Thank you very much for the help! Could you, while you are here, install some system to prevent the Hole from freezing over? Mind you, it can freeze over very, very quickly!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We shall install a Temperature Stabilization Device at the point where the hole is located so that the hole doesn't freeze again.
By the way, we can give you a Black Hole Engine so that you can leave your planet and 100'000 Sporebucks to help you expanding.
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy We gladly accept your offer! We'll try to repay that sooner or later. Maybe some of our Tech? Probably once we manage to make our own Faster Than Light drives.
My condolences, demons of the Great Beyond. I am Paoltorga Rushu Semtessu-Malasos, Luminous Incarnate of the Eriaroon Eugenic Republic. You find yourselves in a fascinating position, a world adrift beyond the blazing lights that mark the infinite depths of Great Beyond. We are not the same, yet our experience may be similar, for my species considered for eons the limits of our world to be the frozen surface of ice at its ceiling. We ventured forth from the abyssal oceans, and came to break beyond the barrier that constrained us. Through that journey, we can extrapolate your own experience. May you find solace in this afterlife of the condemned, rather than the hostility we first encountered.
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Greetings, Eiraroon Eugenic Republic! I see that you are familiar with the Feeling of being trapped under a Ceiling of Ice. Ours was different, however, because it was so cold that touching it could cause Frostbite and was 10 Kilometers Thick. We will still be Trapped on the Planet due to not being able to reach other stars, but at least we will be able to Colonize the Surface. I have two questions for you. 1: How long were you Trapped under this Ice Ceiling? 2: Do you travel between stars quickly? And if yes, how?
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy
So, now that all of that is out of the Way, I would like to introduce myself, and by extension the whole Empire. I am Torlokk, Second Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy. We are rather Peaceful, but just keep in mind that if you make one of us sufficiently Angry, things might not turn out so well for you. We don't like to Fight, but we will fight if the Need arises. I would like to say that I might not be Leader anymore soon. We are building a Spaceship and decided to add the Soul of our very First leader, Nirvax'kottar. If that is successful, he will be the first and third leader in our History. If you have any questions regarding that or maybe something else, ask quickly, I won't be Leader for much longer.
Nirvax'kottar, Prime Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Now you are all too late! I am now Leader, as Torlokk said. He is now my Right Hand (Figuratively, not Literally). However, I should be able to answer the questions you had, except if it was a personal Question. On the other hand, you can ask me other questions. Historical ones mostly, I was the first leader too, after all!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy
Seriously, if any of you have Questions, ask away! We want to get ourselves a bit more involved in this Stuff.
Greetings, Nirvax'kottar! We from JCompany, representing the JOmnivore Empire, came to help!... a little late...
First at all, we want to apologize not being able to response to the transmission of your antecessor asking for help. A major JWar battle happened here in JSector and we from JCompany have to, again, do damage control. We, despite representing an entire interstellar empire, have to do damage control of a war promoted by 10 other entire interstellar empires!!!
... sorry for my outrage, I just need a moment...
Well, but now that we can emerge ourselves over another war crisis, after becoming pressed over by even the mainstream media news, we can focus in events outside JSector!
We sure thanks the Void Eye Empire for being able to first response your calls for help, free you from your ice prison and give you resources to leave the ice planet.
And yes, we from JCompany can create a trade route to Dulinkos or whatever place you choose to realocate, in order to provide everything you need to rebuild!
But we think we can do even more: we can terraform Dulinkos!
Sure, terraforming a rogue planet is a real challenge, never done before as far as we know, that not even a Staff of Life can do! But, during a reunion with our best JSluggerberus natural researchers, they got an idea: use the planetary core as source of heat and light needed to sustain life in a soon-to-be terraformed rogue planet, simulating the star such thing would need!
With the "rogue problem" solved, then we can use the Staff of Life, or even do "traditional" terraformation! There you go, the very first fully terraformed rogue planet with self starlight!
This surely ambitious plan would provide your people a good place to stay until you decide to realocate elsewhere, and also help with the Void Eye Empire plans to make a shelter and a base of operations there!
If everything go right, this would become a great historical event in this Gigaquadrant! If everything go wrong, you guys are leaving the planet anyway! So, what do you say?
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy That's quite the Plan you have there! I'll be very impressed if you manage to Terraform. You can come already, just remember to bring some protection from the Cold. Temperatures can get very close to Absolute Zero!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for the recognition! We sent to Dulinkos our Ecologist JSpaceships, JSpaceships specialized in harsh environments and terraformation, to begin the works!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy That's wonderful. Just make sure to not accidentally melt the Ice from under our Buildings, let them walk away first.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Don't worry, we will be extra careful, and will be using incremental approach to prevent any damage from sudden massive ice melting.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy How's the Project going so far? We need some Info so we can update the Database.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany The JTerraforming Project is progressing faster than I antecipated! The JStar can actually work together with the Void Eye Empire's Temperature Stabilization Device, to control the planet temperature and the ice melting!
As planned, regions with buildings more dependent of ice sustentation are being dealt with extra care. Such regions can remain colder than other regions for safety, to keep the necessary ice, until another engineering solution appears, for each specific case.
The temperature are being adjusted together with the increasing of atmosphere and the inclusion of vegetation and land wildlife, by Reverse Safari Vacuum, on the islands that are appearing as the ice melts! The planet already have its own marine wildlife, so we just need to supervise them integration to the new oceans being formed!
If nothing wrong happen, full terraformation will be completed shortly! Also, we managed to acquired some Warp Tech Devices from other trade partners of ours to put in your planet, as it will be more useful than depending on space wormholes that would be useful only while the rogue planet pass close to them!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Wonderful, I'll get the Database updated. Also, remember when I mentioned the Buildings have Mechanical Legs? You could just ask the Inhabitants (or in some cases the Controlling A.I.) to move the Buildings to the Seafloor. We have Gills alongside our Lungs, so there wouldn't be any Problems.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Good to know, that explain some reports I received from researchers worried about missing Buildings later reappearing elsewhere!
Some researchers learned this before from Inhabitants, but the Controlling A.I. ones really confused the most old-timers natural researchers!
Anyway, I will inform all the researchers about asking the Buildings to move! This shall speed up things even more!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Wonderful. It's great to see all of this Unfold. Especially if you've got as great an orbital view right now as me!
Hello again, Nirvax'kottar, It's good to see that the JCompany helps you in terraforming Dulinkos. I wanted to ask if you want to start a trade route with us. We can trade technology, spice of all sorts (black spice and white spice included), materials and many other things. What do you think about it?
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy I like the sound of that! I think I'll take the Resources and maybe some Technology for making stuff Float in the Air. All we have here is a weird, Glassy Crystal and random Water Rocks. Although, now, with the Terraforming, there are a bunch of Plants we could trade. What would interest you the most?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord You can send us those strange crystals and new plants are always helpful for terraforming. We will take both if you don't have anything else to trade.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Sure, you can have both. We'd give you Resources, but We need those.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Also, I forgot to mention that we opened up a wormhole at our homeworld that leads to Dulinkos so that we don't need to travel long distances to trade.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Good! Just keep in mind that you might have to move the Wormhole every now and then, it's a Rogue Planet after all.
Greetings, Citizens of the Gigaquadrant
I am a representative of the Chonostonian Republic and wish to extend a greeting to all of you. We wish to Introduce ourselves to the rest of this so-called Gigaquadrant. We are the Chonostonian Republic, a proud Empire of Fire-Dwellers and friends with the Elysian Empire. If you have questions, feel free to ask, there will most likely be a Representative here to answer your question.
I have a question; When will we finally grow faster?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Who is... we? Does it have anything to do with us?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians I absolutely apologize for the inconvenience. Tyrolox got a hold of the transmission center and sent a message.
I have a better question than him. How does your species survive in such scorching temperatures?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic It seems that our earliest ancestors were strange Lava-Dwelling Fishlike creatures. Why they could (and we now can) resist such Temperatures... we don't know. Still researching that, I think it might take a while.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic
If anyone else has any more Questions, feel free to ask! Our Communications Network Delays have finally been fixed, so Answers should come in quicker.
Fire-Dwellers, you say? Could it be? A civilisation of a species with a biology that can withstand normal heat levels? You have my interest. Tell me...is yours a society of order, or anarchy? Of strength, or weakness?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Our Government is a Republic, and we put a lot of Value in both Strength of Mind and a Sense of Order. Our Leader, Krt'z Ka'or, has a lot of Both and is one of the few Individuals who can harness Magic, although we all have a basic understanding of Fire Manipulation.
Democracy. How unfortunate. The Yorchi Union prides itself on authority, discipline, dignity. Nonetheless, it is your civilisation, not mine. So long as you don’t force that so-called freedom upon us, I can overlook ideology. As for magic...magic? What an unusual claim to possess. This is truly an extraordinary universe. We may not be able to conjure fireballs from our hands alone, but fire flows through our flamethrowers all the same.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Very well. Other Empires have other Ideals and we are not ones to force others to be like us. You aren't a Democracy, we're fine with that.
I have a question to you, Fire-Dweller stranger: Did you bring money? Because we have a lot of things on sale!
We from JCompany can trade everything, from spice to technology! Just say a word, and we will send our best trader JSpaceships to deliver our best goods right to your fiery doorstep! We accept from sporebucks to Magitech Creations!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic A Curious offer... I'll go and ask our Trade Manager, Krz'at Kol.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic He said that he agrees to trade both our White Spice and our Magitech in exchange for your Spices and Technology. I hope you have wormholes or something, because we don't.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you very much for accept your offer, Fire-Dweller friend! Don't worry, we have Wormhole Keys to spare. Nothing can stop our trade routes!
Our JSpaceships may arrive at your homeworld Eiranos real soon, with all our goods for sell! I recommend the Purple Spice, but you may like the Red ones as well! Feel free to visit us anytime!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Wonderful. I think I can see them coming already! Thanks for wanting to Trade with us. The Magitech might be very Confusing, so we would gladly send some Instruction Manuals if you want. Should we?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure, sure, send some manuals! I am receiving confusing reports from our representives, of they seeing fire being conjured from nowhere, and fire "dancing around" right in front of them. Our guys sure looks impressed, and wants to do the same with this Magitech!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Manuals are being sent as we speak! We'd also like to ask if you would like to have some of our Scientists and Sorcerers come over to help with the Usage, as the Manuals are... Mediocre at best.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Good idea! Some personal know-how talk between specialists can sure do more than just manuals!
The representant team I sent includes some JCreepy guys. Don't let the name scare you, they are the best scientists JSector can offer! Our scientists and yours will sure have some very productive talks!
I thought about send some JSluggerberus guys too, our best natural researchers in JSector, but... JSluggerberuses and JCreepies don't look eye-to-eye very much... some political topics around, we have to alocate them in different planets, kinda a mess... I hope it don't prejudice the work very much.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic We'll try to make it work. Also, I wanted to mention that we are working on a Dyson Swarm (Dyson Sphere, but satellites) !
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Oh, we can help with that too! We can work with Dyson Swarms, Rings, Bubbles, Shells and Webs! Dyson megastructures for all tastes and budgets! My representant team can be asked for details!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Good to know, but our Space Travel requires very, very extensive Knowledge of the Technology of our Allies, the Elysian Empire. I think that even a Trained Individual might have trouble explaining it to you... They are pretty nice though, I think they would like to trade as well!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum, I think we can contact the Elysian Empire, then! We are always eager for new customers!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic No seriously, I think they would appreciate some messages directed at them.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Just contacted them. You are right, we are nice and agreed to trade too!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire So, it has been decided that we will trade. So what exactly do you want to trade? You can ask for something special and we will see if we can get that anywhere. You could also ask us for suggestions.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Salutations, Dorshan! We can trade everything, from spice to technology, and accept from sporebucks to any new valuable resources and technologies!
For now, we from JCompany are interested in new enterprises around the First Gigaquadrant, such enterprises until recently unknown here in our relatively tiny JSector. From your allies of Chonostonian Republic, for example, we trade for White Spice and MagiTech. White Spice are really rare in JSector, and we had nothing like MagiTech before!
From you, we heard some fascinating things about Energy Crystals and Arcana! We sure are interesting in such resources and know-how! We can help you and your allies with our engineering know-how about, for example, Antimatter and Dyson megastructures buildings! We also have an ample collection of goods to trade, from spices to high-tech tools for Space Travel!
That's our proposal. If you have think else in mind, just ask and we can search for it in our emporium!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire That sounds wonderful. These Crystals, however, are a recent discovery and not much is Known. What we do know is that it constantly changes Temperature. Observed Temperatures range from 10.23 Kelvin all the way to 51467 Kelvin! Caution is advised. As for what we want from you, I think your offer is splendid. I have to add that sadly, Arcana is not something easily manipulated by most beings. We have a natural affinity for the Arcane and thus can easily make Magical objects. Most beings don't have the Mental Capacity for efficiently using Arcana, but can still use the Magical Objects. We are working on Magical Objects to allow other Beings to easily manipulate the Arcane, but it's proving to be way more work than we originally thought. Would you be OK if we just assembled what you requested for the time being?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure, take your time to assemble everything. Our scientists sent to Eiranos are already fascinated with the MagiTech, we will be even more with such Magical Objects and Energy Crystals!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire Good to see such enthusiasm in other Empires. Also, the Dyson Swarm Project we and the Chonostonian Republic are working on together is finished soon!
We gladly accept your trade offer, Krz'at Kor. We are willing to trade your white spice with our black spice. The black spice is harvested out of the rotational black holes where we build some of our bases. Although small amount of Void Energy is required to create it, it is not dangerous. We can create a wormhole near our homeworld where we can set up a trade route.
So, when should we start trading?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic I would love to start trading right now, if possible. We recently found a way to produce ample amounts of White Spice, so trade can go on for long. If you have questions about White Spice, feel free to ask!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great, we opened the wormhole near our homeworld and we are sending some ships to your homeworld. We can start trading soon. And, could you please explain the nature of the white spice and what it does to me?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Ahh, White Spice. Quite the oddball, this Stuff. It doesn't do much by itself, but under the influence of certain (mostly extreme) things such as Lava, Liquid Nitrogen, or probably even Void Energy, it can exhibit a multitude of strange effects, most of which are unresearched! If you find out what it does with Void Energy, please let me know. Also, just for reassuring, Organic Creatures are uneffected by White Spice. Additionally, White Spice is an excellent Arcane Conductor, but I doubt that that's important for you.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hmm, we got very interesting results when we combined your white spice with the Void Energy. It creates a black crystal like substance with white light flashing in it. We are currently researching the abilities of these crystals and it seems like they can boost the Void power of those who are nearby. However we are not entirely sure about it, it needs more research...
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Sounds... Interesting. Does it have any other Effects on its Surroundings?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord No, we haven't found any other effects on its surroundings yet. We are just starting to research it, we will post updates here. Also, I forgot to mention that it creates the crystals only when Void liquid is used, In other cases the Void Energy tends to consume the white spice and get more powerful.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Weird... Alright, I'll remember to check here every now and then! Is there anything special that your Black Spice does/can do?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, our black spice can be used to do many different things. It can serve as fuel to create small black holes. It can also be used to produce antidepressants due to the use of Void Energy to create it. It is tasteless but it has a refreshing effect. The black spice has of course other properties, but we need time to investigate them.
ACTIVATED Our connection is established and our communications complete. The efforts to successfully create a signal booster and a subsequent station powerful enough to send these signals through the wormhole barriers was no small effort. To those that receive this wide-range transmission throughout the galaxies of the Gigaquadrant, we are the Infinite Council of the Inuneridality - we all represent a facet of our civilization’s own system; war, bureaucracy, research advancement, all that keeps our Inuneridality alive in our galaxy. But to you all, we speak as one.
We lead a militaristic empire of clones, but fear nor - we war only when necessary to protect our empire. Our people live lives of luxury and safety, and we believe in true order for our home. We live in what we call Vazar, Nid’haziran, Thuri Lai, or other terms the other civilizations call this galaxy - but to you all, our home is called the Eupherion Galaxy. We extend this greeting from our home of Rivis Eotera, where we live and work as the rulers of the Inuneridality.
Do not be afraid to ask our representative, the Alderman Tharag, about the culture of Eupherion. I have no doubts additional messages from other powers will be received shortly.
Oh what the fuck!? Samut'angari inscriptions!? Is this the fucking War of Ages again!? Anyways, greetings Inuneridality and the Infinite Council that leads it, I am President Somonthalle Nathilik, I am the president and leader of a republic known as the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, commonly referred to as the Lsjanpodos. It is a pleasure to meet you, this marks the first time we have any contact with the Eupherion Galaxy, closest thing we had to contact with Eupherion until now was finding Zalax ruins and incorperating Zalax tech into ours. According to Zalax archival records, they came from the Eupherion Galaxy, I hope as inhabitants of Eupherion you can confirm this. Consider friendly contacts established, we'll ask some questions about Eupherion and your empire later.
We bid our own welcome to the First Gigaquadrant. We are Xrykoria - but to the other nations out there, the proper term would perhaps be the Second Xrykorian Alliance. We are one of the few true democratic bastions in the galaxy, and I extend a hand of friendship to those that intercept this message.
Greetings Second Xrykorian Alliance, this is President Somonthalle Nathilik of the Grand United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, or the Lsjanpodos if you don't have all day to say it. You can see that some demons are sending utter nonsense which I believe are threats considering the nature of these demons, regardless, it's pleasant to see that more powers from Eupherion are starting to make contact with the wider Gigaquadrant.
Greetings Inuneridality, I am Overlord of the Void Eye Empire, we are pleased to meet you. It is good to see that the species of the Eupherion galaxy are opening contact with the Gigaquadrant. Anyway, we look towards good relationships with you.
We have started a new Project involving an Object known as a "Monolith", an advanced Evolution Accelerator. We placed it on a nearby Planet with a Tribe of Humanoid Ducks on it and wish to see how this will turn out. We will make sure they send their Welcome Message here. Look forward to a new Spacefaring Civilization and until soon,
Did you leave a message on the monolith saying "Hello, if you can read this, we uplifted you" so they would figure out where they came from? It's always healthy to leave a message for them to read later. I think.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Terravis told me she Engraved the Message on all the Monolith Casings before adding the Technology, so all should be well.
Foolish... Absolutely Foolish. I can't wait to Toy with these Duck People...
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Umm...
Terravis? What did you do?
-Background- I don't know!
Well that's just Great...
Terravis, Head Mechanic of the Elysian Empire Well, looks like I might have accidentally added one of the Higher-Tier AI Contructs to the Monolith sent to the Duck Person Planet. Let's hope the Monolith doesn't get too out of Hand...
Osvan's Monolith That was just a Joke, calm down you two. Yes, you seem to have added the wrong Module, but that just makes it funnier. Imagine the Duck People's Surprise when they notice the "Weird Black Thing" can Talk! I can't wait...
MONOLITH STATUS REPORT The Two Cities on the Planet I was sent to just signed a Peace Treaty. Things are looking up and up for these Humanoid Ducks.
MONOLITH STATUS REPORT Looks like these Duck People are working on Space Travel... They didn't even make it into Orbit yet *snicker*.
Greetings, I am Overlord from the Void Eye Empire, we come in peace.
Our Empire is not as big as the other ones, we are usually peaceful and we are open for new relationships, however I would not recommend you to insult us. We worship the Void Energy, many of you will not like it but we mean no harm to you.
We are located in the Andromeda galaxy, in the Umbra region between the New Tadpole Empire and the New Tertamian Alliance.
We seek new allies and new trade routes to expand our empire, we have many technologies to share…
We look towards good relationships with the empires of the First Gigaquadrant.
Greetings and salutations, sir Overlord, and welcome to the Gigaquadrent. I'm sure that you'll find it quite comfortable here as long as you stay away from certain people. While we are millions of years away from you, we give you our welcoming and gift of harmony.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Could you please tell us who those certain people are?
And are you interested in trading? We have many goods to trade with you, mostly technology. Although you are many millions of years away from us, we could create a wormhole near our homeworld using 'it' where we could set up a trade route with you.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Wormhole technology sounds interesting. Do you happen to have any spice of sorts? We're on a high demand for green to make more tea.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, we have much spice of the rare sorts, not so much of the common ones though and of course our new invented black spice, that is refreshing and you can make black tea out of it. So when should we start trading?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We'll order a few containers of Green Spice just to be safe, we'll work on finding a proper colony and its coordinates.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Fine, we opened a wormhole near your home system for now and we will send a spaceship to deliver the green spice to you.
Tyrolox, Emperor of the Republic of Grubmolians I'll request 250 pineapple pizzas for our next party. No stuffed crust, I'll take it no later than 10 days.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Tyro, no. Stop spending half the budget on pizzas.
I apologize, we'll pay you for the shipping. Thank you for the green spice.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire
Ooh, new people! I, Osvan, would like to Welcome you to this Communication Channel. Say, as the Head Scientist, I would like to inquire about what this "Void Energy" you are talking about is. Sounds Interesting!
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire What can it do? That's really my biggest Question right now.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Void Energy is a strange form of essence that seems to defy the laws of physics. It focuses mainly on the control of gravity. If you are skilled with it you can create objects out of nothing and you have access to teleportation. If you find a source of the Void Energy or a gate to the Abyss, you can get near infinite energy. You can also make wormholes with it. But I must warn you that you need to be very experienced at it to use the high tier powers, because the consequences could be very grave.
Your usage of that energy has left me dumbfounded. The Nyarqaeshu wanted us all eradicated because of that energy, and that's the least of the drawbacks of using that. The path of Element-aligned Essence should be your path, not that of Void Energy.
The Dynast of the Dynastic Systems: His Eminence, Dynast Vhamlas Naralhi Nyarqaeshu were Ultraterrestrials, a race of god-like technologically ascended beings from the Milky Way. They were the principle users and godform that represented Void Energy. It was only a decade and a half ago that their leader, Xizothano Ada, came back to exert control over Mirus. His genocidal rampage with the energy left a scar much like the Drakodominatus Tyranny, but we had managed to avoid his wrath for the most part. The few records we have of precursor Zalax archival entries states that they also had avoided the Nyarqaeshu.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire So, it has a bad Reputation? Unless I misunderstood something...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We do not worship the Nyarqaeshu or Xizothano Ada. Yes, the Void Energy may seem to destructive at first, but if you are skilled at it and do not overuse it, then you will get all the benefits. Only because the Xizothano Ada wanted to destroy everything using it, it doesn't mean the Void Energy is bad.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Good Reasoning, I like that!
The Dynast of the Dynastic Systems: His Eminence, Dynast Vhamlas Naralhi Untrue. It robs of your being, dominates and erodes your mind like a tide against stone as you slowly lose your personality. You become unliving, a puppet of Ada, and compelled to destroy and render everything in your reach back into nothing. I have seen this myself many times, through the eyewitness accounts of fellow leaders who were targeted by former friends who believed it was controllable. There is only one, perhaps two individuals who could exert control over the energy.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord First of all, Ada is now consumed, he lost all his god-like powers. Second Ada has not the control over all the Void Energy from the Abyss. Third @!*42%7?/ w(@l c%m$... Finally we have 'it' and 'it' can protect us from the influence that Ada makes. You will only hollow your soul if you overuse it.
I realize Ada is dead, but if he lays absorbed by Terikalinra, then nobody ever could control it. Never the less, the path of mystic and elemental Essences is far more pure than the pursuit of chaotic and neutral Essences. I am sad you could not learn the true power of Psionic Energy before you were chained to Void Energy.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire ...maybe Something Else? This is starting to unnerve Me...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Well, the Void Energy is not chaotic and it is better than the mystic and elemental essences at some points. We think that the Void Energy is the purest essence existing in the universe along with the opposite of it. Anyway lets close this topic.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Ok then, I'll tell Marnas to write you down in our Empires List. Have a nice Day!
You are messing with things beyond your ability to comprehended, beyond anyone's ability to comprehend. If you wish to understand what I speak of try this little exercise, try to imagine perceiving nothing. Except there's a catch, if you perceive nothing (which the Void is) that there is not truly nothing for you still perceive and thus you still exist. Thus you must not perceive at all to perceive nothing.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire So... you have to be dead to comprehend the Void? But then you can't comprehend anything! Or is that the Point... My Head Hurts...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is true, you must exist and not exist at the same time to fully understand the Void, this means you must be as one as the Void to understand it.
Welcome to the Gigaquadrantic stage Void Eye Empire. Let it be known that we're pretty suspicious of you at the moment, for similar reasons the Dynastic Systems of Sal'ir and Sacred Vanara Empire have stated, so we won't go detailed about it, simply put, Void Energy is pure evil of nothingness and best avoided at all costs. As for our diplomatic approach to the Void Eye Empire, we are staying off of you for now. For now, trade between us and you is closed and our view of the Void Eye Empire is currently leaning towards negative and distrust.
Greetings, Overlord! I noted your empire and mine are doing common actions across the Gigaquadrant, but we never made proper apresentations to each other before!
I am JOmnivore, Leader of the JOmnivore Empire and Tycoon of its main company, JCompany! We come in peace, to trade and to help others civilizations, then we can trade even more!
We propose trade routes with your empire, as we are interested in your Void tech and Black Spice! Interested? Also, we are working on terraforming Dulinkos, making it better as shelter and base of operations, what should facilitates such trade routes creation even more!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Greetings to you too, Tycoon JOmnivore. Yes, we are interested in starting a trade route with your company. We are currently in need of Colony Incredi-Paks and other colony tools, so we can trade them for our Void tech and black spice. But there is a problem, our Void tech functions on Void Energy, this means that you can't use it without the Void Energy. There are 4 solutions to this:
1) You need to find a source of Void Energy like 'it'.
2) You need to give us some energy to convert to Void Energy by using 'it'. Then we will give back your Void Energy.
3) You can just buy it from us.
4) You need to become a Void Zealot.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for your response, Overlord! We sure have lots of colony tools for sell in our emporium, including Colony Incredi-Paks!
About the Void Energy problem you mentioned, we from JCompany believes in redundancy to increase reliability, so we will act in the 4 solutions you suggested!
1) We have resources and personnel available to search for such 'it' Void Energy source! Any hints where we can find such 'it'?
2) We can give you some of our antimatter energy to convert to Void Energy by using your 'it'!
3) We can also buy it from you too, no problem!
4) Well, we JOmnivores are not much the zealot type of folks... however, we have these JGrox employees that may help with such solution!
About our JGroxs, they are not the Grox machine guys every Gigaquadrantian loves to hate! These guys believes that they, as Grox descendants, must redempt themselves, by Faith!
Most JGroxs are seeking "JWar redemption", embracing the ideals of the JHorde, and leading them against the "tiranny" of the JAlliance! However, a small dissident group of JGroxs refused to join the war, and we from JCompany offered jobs for such refugees! They accepted, but... they are not exactly the most dedicated workers we have... just imagine a Zealot without a cause to fight for!
After your response, we have a serious reunion with them, and we offered them a chance to become the first JCompany's Void Zealots, the very first Void Zealots in JSector! We told them that this is their best chance to reach a peaceful redemption, and to help JCompany to grow to the point we may end JWar, the war that sepparated them from their loved ones!
Man, they cried! I saw hope in their eyes, a hope losted for a long time! They smiled and started to rejoice! They hugged me and promised they are willing to decidate their lives to the Void, if it means bring peace to JSector!
So yes, we have Zealots fully-motivated to embrace the Void! We sent them in their Zealot JSpaceships to your location, to start our trade route and their convertion, and they will be responsible for the recently inaugured Void JDivision of JCompany!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Good to hear, we have opened another wormhole at our homeworld.The trading will start soon.
But there are problems with your solutions to this:
1. 'It' is an ancient relic and we don't think that there are copies of 'it'. However, you could search for other relics that look like 'it', not all would contain a source of Void Energy, but if you found one we would give you a big reward (10'000'000 Sporebucks), but finding them is very difficult since they are scattered across the Gigaquadrant.
2. This could work but I would advise the number 3.
3. This is the easiest way to both of us.
4. Sadly, we are not able to convert them into our religion. We are sorry but it isn't possible.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum... OK, let's stick with the trade route and the solution 3 then!
However, I won't undo the creation of the Void JDivision, as our JGroxs seems to really care with the new company division, but instead I will adjust its function: the Void JDivision will be responsable of the Void tech and Void Energy trade, and also on the search of 'it'-like relics!
The trade involving Void will also be done by Zealot JSpaceships instead of Trader JSpaceships, as they seems more appropriate!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord If you want to help us in finding those relics you need to get the Void Relic Detection Device. We will send you one of those so you can search Void relics in the Milky Way Galaxy. The reward for finding and giving us a Void relic is around 10'000'000 Sporebucks.
A war is coming to the void eyes and that war needs to be stopped before it can grow into a intergalactic conflict.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord The war, the war, the war... Yes, it is coming for us and there is nearly nothing that we can do about it. We are sorry that it has come so far, but we do not know any way to stop it because the races that hate us won't stop until our beliefs are completely destroyed. We can sense their hatred and ignorance, but we are not the ones to judge them... If you know a way to stop the upcoming war, then tell it.
Emperor Ipliq, Communications Director and Emperor of the UROG We lack a true understanding of Void Energy- but it is my suggestion that you stay away from any void related activity- or void relic hunting- Whatever it takes.
And while we don't agree with your usage of this energy- We will defend you, but only if the conflict is started by a despising empire before you mess up- or release something terrible. But only under those conditions.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Fine, if that's all that we need to do, then we will stop searching the Void relics.
I don't think we can help you, but I'm sure if you can tell us more we could get you out of the situation you're in, or something.
Unless you don't know how to fix the tech.

BREAKING: Self-Proclaimed Chalag Khanate invade Notorious Local Oltauris Stronghold, make Brutal Examples of CriminalsEdit
Nomadic Drodo hordes take the lawless world of Ildhis by storm, reports show
Dramatic holorecordings depict tens thousands of Drodo men, mounted on the backs of their heavily-customised robohorses and holding high all manner of sabres, lances, and rifles, pounding through the flat, chilly landscape of Ildhis towards their targets-- the sprawling, lawless slums and neatly-packed privately-owned skyscrapers of the world. Their target? Crimelords affiliated with the infamous Oltauris Consortium criminal network.
Ildhis is a world which teeters-- it teeters on the edge of URO space and thus jurisdiction, it teeters on the brink of economic collapse, and all authority on the world has proven to be transient throughout its centuries-long history of settlement. Wracked with massive wealth inequality that has only be exacerbated under the harsh rule of local crimelords, the local poor are the world's only serious resource, and in the past have been used by multiple regimes to farm the meagre soil, work to produce machined goods from imported raw materials, and, most recently, as a fertile recruiting ground by Oltauris agents as well as an illegal narcotics and arms manufactory. For its huge numbers of desperate inhabitants, however, its become valuable to anybody willing to take it.
"We come as liberators-- and their new lords," Insists Falahi, a respected Chalag noble and one of the participants of the battle. His sword was still caked in the blood of Oltauris prisoners he had dispatched minutes before. His eyes showed not a hint of remorse.
Some of the inhabitants, who have suffered under Oltauris tyranny for over a decade, have displayed cautious optimism towards their new masters, especially after the mounted men began to distribute food and supplies from the Oltauris warehouses they had only hours before seized. Others, however, have not been so pleased.
"They give out free food now, but then what? I saw with my own eyes what they did to those warehouse guards!" Said a Galotian woman, who asked not to be named. "They beheaded one guard, before putting out the eyes of the others so it was the last thing they saw. Then the Drodo men read out their crimes, and how they kept all this food from the people-- then they tossed them from the rooftop to the angry mobs below to be torn apart." She sighed; "What if we-- gods forbid-- rebel? Is this the treatment and governance we can look forward to?"
Since its founding, the Chalag Khanate has dedicated itself to the annihilation of the organised crime syndicates that so run the unclaimed and lawless parts of Ottzello Sector space, and the installation of itself as a unifying, peacebringing presence. While it has seen success so far in its brief existence, many fear the nomads have picked a much bigger fight than ever before with this invasion.
Greetings. We, the Isordon clan, bring ill news to the Drodo people and to the Gigaquadrant as a whole.
In 2816, Cesterity Isordon, Imperial war-hero, former Premier, respected military theorist and Fyr of the Isordon Clan, was badly wounded and taken captive amid an interclan conflict. At the conclusion of this clan-war in 2818, all Isordons waited to see the prisoners of each side exchanged and to reunite with their loved ones-- but it was then that our former-enemies, the Ouvins, informed us that Cesterity had escaped their captivity several months before, retreating alone into the hostile wilderness as soon as he built up the strength to. The news was met with shock and outrage, but soon after our clan, with the generous help of local and federal authorities as well as the full cooperation of the Ouvin clan scoured the Empire in a years-long search for our valued and loved clan-member.
However, it is now in 2822 that we, the Isordon clan, officially call off the official search for Cesterity Isordon or his remains, after four long years of searching only to bring up no trace. It is with a heavy heart among all involved that we must, under the circumstances declare him dead. While every Isordon prays that Cesterity is still with us in this world, all are assured that if this is not the case, he has instead taken his rightful place among his proud ancestors.
A state funeral will be held on the Imperial capital world of Coron.
I met mr Isordon twice in my life, both times in vastly different circumstances. Chiefly I fought alongside him to aid of a mutual ally -USF- but only when I fought against him during the Sovereign Coalition Wars did I really begin to admire him and the tactics he deployed. Huh...it's strange to realise he's almost certainly been dead for about four years.
I would have send my agents in Katar to search for him, but, given that the search has alreay been cancelled, there is nothing I can do but offer my condolences condolences for someone who has been, at various points in my life, both an enemy and an ally. May Cesterity Isordon rest in bliss until his next reïncernation. He deserves it.
I'll bet you 20 Drodoian Credits he's still alive and is probably slurping up spaghetti al nero di seppia in some picturesque Terran tourist world, honeymooning with some new wife who was too ditzy to send a telegram informing everyone that he didn't actually die in a volcanic eruption.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett Good grief, that's utterly ridiculous. What else did he do? Fight scantly clad, heavily muscled gods. Such foolishness.
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Spymaster Oji'b He fought the Dominatus. That is no foolishness. Although I guess that is some obsure Mendelian pop-cultural reference. A metaphor, perhaps.
Oh I'm sure he'll turn up eventually, probability when you need him the most or something like that. Heroes have a tendency of doing that kind of thing, or so my experience has taught me. Though I wonder if perhaps you haven't considered the possibility that he doesn't want to be found?
A Communication Attempt From a New CivilizationEdit
Greetings, representatives of the nations of the Gigaquadrant. I am Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate. I am addressing all of the Gigaquadrant to announce that we are coming out of galactic isolation, so I would like to extend a formal greeting to the other nations outside of our known space. Since the wars you all have fought began to extend into, and include, our home galaxy of Mirus, we have been pressured to come out of isolation. Now, as we are all newcomers to Gigaquadrantic affairs, we would like to understand exactly what is going on in the Gigaquadrant as of now.
A second note - we would like to extend invitations of trade and diplomacy to other nations within Mirus that receive this transmission, as well as the situation within the Tuuros Galaxy after that....fiasco.
This thing had better work.

Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate O-oh, uh, well, great. Good n-news, and bad news. Good news is that the communication network works. Bad news it that reception seems to be absolute trash. Of course, that, uh, does seem to be a threat from what I can make out of it. Executives! Take note of that name, "Girtabelilu", and try to see if we are capable of making any use of it!
Apalos The Universal Discussion Board's primary Tuurosian relay is currently suffering from minor technical issues. Maybe we shouldn't have put it right in the middle of the Schism. On a more welcoming note, don't let the first response you happened to receive colour your view of the wider Gigaquadrant. The majority of nations outside Tuuros are far friendlier than these Girtabelilu appear to be, and will certainly not subject you to unprovoked threats.
Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate Great, it works! Greetings, Apalos! We are incredibly happy to hear from a more friendly nation than the...things that just contacted us. The information that the races outside of Tuuros are p, in fact, friendly makes me particularly happy.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett
Hail to you, and well meet, Vogrik. We are of Mirus as well, we Mendel, and we are most happy to see a new race arise from their world and come into their own. If you so wish, we can send a Taidhleoir Diplomat to speak of trade and commerce between our peoples, and the possibility of an alliance down the line. Whatever comes of these talks, it will be a pleasure working with you.
Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate To be perfectly honest, we are by no means new - we have existed for 400 years now - but that is irrelevant. Your request for a diplomatic is accepted - one of our many goals coming into the galactic community is to be involved within the community of our own galaxy.

Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate Oh man, this is new. Our communication relay and decryption networks cannot make sense of more than a bunch of gibberish here, but what we can tell is that the degradation of this signal seems to be due to age.
This is a curious phenomenon. A war? Reptilian menace? I will certainly be dispatching contact signals to the source of these transmissions!
Oh boy! A corrupted message! I can't wait to decode this corrupted message! Do you know what my favorite thing to do is when decoding corrupted messages? I love rearranging letters while decoding corrupted messages. Rearranging letters while decoding corrupted is the best thing and the most fun you can have while doing military intelligence tasks. I can understand why all the kids are playing with military ciphers these days; it's because they like to rearrange lowercase letters in corrupted messages. I also like to rearrange lowercase letters in corrupted messages. It's the most fun you can possibly have.
What is the point of decoding corrupted messages?
Communications Channel of the Glorious Levisala Confederacy - Commodore Liandra Shen Now that I've wrestled the transponder from that idiot's hands, let's see if we can actually decode this. Hopefully my cipher skills haven't grown rusty in the thirty years since the last great war.
Hmm... Alright, so this is what I can get so far. The first half I'll probably be able to get through right now, but that idiot is probably going to start making pouty faces at me and asking for the UDB transponder back before I can start on the second half.
"A Merosian fleet of over 150 warships has been sent to AKPAD, homeworld of our enemy, the AKPADUR KRATOCRACY, to deliver a possible final blow to the reptilian scourge to our kind once and for all.
"After the victory at ALU-KARKUTAZCH, the third time in that system's history that a battle has been waged in its confines, the combined Merosian armies have full confidence in their ability to push the Akpaduri fleet all the way back into their home space. Some legions of craft have been sent off in pursuit of retreating enemy craft. Those who have remained in Merosian-controlled space have split off into two groups: the first group stays within our space and mobilizes whatever troops necessary to fight in what many believe may be perhaps the largest battle in Merosian history, at least as extensive as the Three Systems Conflict in Year 546.6, with perhaps more casualties. The second group does much the same, albeit in Merosian holdouts being repressed by the Akpadur."All other Merosians are advised to assist in the war effort and in the stabilization of the process of our reunification."
Sounds like Alu-Karkutazch isn't an ideal place to build your vacation home. And I can't find any history text that mentions an "Akpadur Kratocracy" so this probably explains that. Though there's nothing about "Merosians" either. Maybe someone accidentally leaked the penultimate chapter of their secret space fantasy romance novel?

Perhaps it's not an epic Space Fantasy novel, but just someone got drunk and started smashing a keyboard to get a message out and, after getting over his hangover was too embarrassed to fix the mistake. Happens all the time around here, in Mirus at least.
Message from Speaker of Speakers of the Stellar Outreach Sovereignty What sectors have you been listening to? Regardless this might be worth investigating, I mean it wasn't that long ago that a multi-headed space dragon made of literal evil just showed up here and destroyed several civilizations (including our own). Crazy shit happens.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett Our Vanara friends could explain it better, but it has much to do with the area known as Accel Space. Quite...strange.
Message from Speaker of Speakers of the Stellar Outreach Sovereignty No science of any sort, just part of the inherent nature of the nonsensical realm that our technology is built off and defines our very being.
The transmission you have received is considerably old, in the ballpark of 376.8 years. We are unsure of the cause of this delay in transmission of a historical bulletin. We assure those who receive this that these events did transpire, and that the Akpadur Kratocracy is no longer a threat, and that the current year is not 557.6, but is rather 934.4 as of our current transmission date.
Long live the Great Society. Long Live Meros.
Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate Well, guess we don't need to send a fleet anymore!
Slightly nervous chuckling could be heard.
Anyways, how come you didn't contact the Gigaquadrant before?
Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate Well, I suppose. I am Shlan'ak Phur'an, the current Director of the Directorate of Acaphre's Children, or for short, Vogrik Directorate. We are, compared to data gathered about the source of your transmission, an extragalactic empire of sentient amphibious dexterudae belonging to the Mirus Galaxy.

Official Communique from the Drodo Empire
I am Emperor Jilnaris I the Wise of House Kilar. I am the undisputed ruler of the Drodo people, a species which originates from the Plazith Rim, though referred to as well as the 'Milky Way Galaxy'. My Empire spans many tens of thousands of star-systems over four galaxies, with trillions of subjects under my watchful and enlightened rule. We are a peaceful people, renowned for our boundless hospitality and our ability to make loyal, unbreakable bonds-- among the strongest being the humans known as The French, of whom Alexandre I is their sovereign and my good friend.
You appear to be uninformed regarding the Gigaquadrant, as many peoples new to the greater political stage often are. The Drodo Empire and its Allies agree that providing such polities with accurate and transparent information regarding Gigaquadrantic affairs and connecting it with the larger Gigaquadrant as quickly and as safely as possible is the best option to maximise international trust, cooperation, and prosperity between all peoples. Despite our attempts to help however, the transition to a truly intergalactic society will be an immensely difficult one regardless, and unfortunately it is a transition you have inadvertently and irreversibly started down by casting a tentative cry to the rest of the universe in such a manner.
The question now, my new Merosian friends, is how you will respond. How will you transition to an intergalactic society? With whom will you align yourselves? How will you keep a hold of your past, while looking to the future? Will you even bother holding to the past? Know that despite the era of relative peace we now live in, the Gigaquadrant can still be a dangerous place, and I am prepared to lead personally my people to the field of battle if it becomes necessary to do so.
I pray that as a society, you will make the correct choice, Merosian friends.
Emperor Jilnaris I Kilar the Wise, Emperor of the Drodo Empire, Prime Elder of the House of Kilar, CEO of Taravon Space Assets Ltd. (fmr.), King of Aratacia (def.), Head of Philosophy Department at Imperial University of Coron (fmr.).
And to add to the Drodo - who are indeed very much respected - you are not alone as a newcomer to the Gigaquadrant. Indeed, we ourselves came out of hiding onky weeks earlier. We are no less of a stranger to the Gigaquadrant than you are, even though we have been spacefaring for several hundred years. As it seems your communication network is, surprisingly, capable of UDB communication, we happily ask that you contact us. I would very much be honored to be among the first extraterrestrial beings that you have met in person.
Ooh, so the people that sent that message are still alive and kicking! That's very fascinating. And since I don't see any Akpadur around to say otherwise, looks like that military campaign was quite successful too! Very nice, very nice. Y'know, the kind of society that can respect a solid military victory like that is becoming few and far between.
Just between you and me, brother - or sister, or non-binary sibling, if that's how you roll - let's ditch the rest of these losers and start our own club, with blackjack and hookers and no girls allowed. The Gigaquadrant isn't so scary when you've got a couple of friends to guide you around, ya dig? We'll set you straight, get you on the right path, not like those Drodo at least. Did you know the Drodo's best friends eat snails? Do you want to end up like that? Eating snails as high cuisine? Well, actually, maybe you do, in which case that's cool, but if you're of like mind and find that très répugnant then I'll welcome you with open arms.
Call us up anytime, and we'll hear you out, cousin. Oh, but not on Thursday at 12, that's when my soaps are on.
The Imperator of the Grand and Prosperous United Merosian Imperium To the respondants to our message, I bid you official greetings. The general societal opinion aimed towards making this message worthwhile, and as Imperator I shall follow the suggestions of society. This is an incredible development, but I need remind all respondants that the message you initially replied to was originally sent out 376.8 years ago, as one of our dedicated broadcasters clarified earlier. So, we ask of you to slow down.
As for myself, I am Ullathromah Karkutazou, Fourth Imperator and Lord President of the Grand and Prosperous United Merosian Imperium. Our Imperium has existed for 376.6 years, and stands 20 thousand systems strong. Our people are industrious and strong-willed; collectively marching onward towards a greater future for the sake of the Imperium and all its citizens. Although we haven't made any efforts to contact empires and nation-states outside of our own intentionally, we have recently switched over to a new territory-wide communication technology, which seems to reach frequencies that your kinds can pick up. Our societal collective deems this development "interesting, yet one to approach slowly." Your multitude of responses pouring in from inside and outside of our galaxy actually cast the whole of the Imperium into a brief panic. For the time being, we shall respond somewhat selectively.
To the Vogrik Directorate:
You were the first to contact us; society deems it only sensible that we respond to your messages first. To answer your questions about the message, the Akpadur Kratocracy was our species' enemy during the latter half of Third Great War amongst our own kind, threatening to wipe us out. They no longer exist as an empire, and their reptilian kind are not many in number anymore.
We are considerably surprised by your presence outside our galaxy, and are still "getting used to this," as it were. You mention the prospect of being the first extraterrestrial species to meet us in person. You would certainly not be the first species, nor empire to make contact with us -- although, you say it would be a meeting rather than an attack, so yes, you would be the first indeed to make contact with us in a positive light, as it were. If you are capable of intergalactic travel, the Imperium would be most happy to host a small fleet of yours. And, to Director Shian'ak Phur'an, by all means, visit. I personally would find it good to meet you in person. You seem of good character.
To the Levisala Confederacy:
The Imperium is considerably impressed by your ability to clean up the degraded message. Comparing the segment you recomposed to the segment of the historical transcript it corresponds to, you have matched it word-for-word. Your kind seems to be interesting, and of like values to us. We respect those who can achieve solid military victories -- presumably yourselves.
We have many questions for your kind as well. What is "blackjack" and what are "hookers?" And..."girls?" If you are referring to members of a dual-gendered species -- which we are not -- of the incubatory type, we understand, but if not, do clarify. And, while we have yet to respond to the Drodo Empire, we do not know what these "snails" are. As for your offer to communicate, we shall leave a frequency channel open for your kind, as with the Vogrik. The Imperium looks forward to future conversations.
To the Drodo Empire:
The Imperium recognizes your impressive intergalactic span. We are curious to know more about your kind and these "French" -- presumably the "friends" which the Levisala were referring to. We are unsure of what to think of your entire message. Your offer of information on this "Gigaquadrant" and the affairs within, we as a civilization cannot ignore.
As for the final section of your message, however, the Imperium is most unsure about. We cannot make front or back whether to perceive this as advice or as a threat. I will personally assure you of a few things, however: The Imperium is always striving toward the future, as efficiency and industry are two of our founding principles. We are well aware of our lack of knowledge of this Gigaquadrant and the threats which lie within. While we are new to this stage, we shall take the transition as slowly as we can to ensure total stability in transition and advancement. And finally, I assure you that I, too, will lead my people to battle if necessary. We are by no means unwilling to engage in combat. However, the Imperium again recognizes your apparent strength and does not wish to engage in military conflict. The Akpadur may, in fact, have been a special case.
The Imperium has decided your Empire is intriguing; we will certainly have to continue communications.
For the time being, we shall remain within our "corner" of the galaxy, as it were. If any other party wishes to communicate further, be our guest. If we do not respond, do not take this as hostility. We are a considerably "busy" Imperium, and there are many issues within our bounds which may take priority over communication.
To those whom we have responded to, we hope to hear from you soon enough.
The Director of the Vogrik Directorate: Director Phur'an Oh yes, we would be perfectly happy to visit your homeworld. We ourselves have a private wormhole located only a few thousand light years away - NGX something or other. It happens to lead right into the Perseus arm of the Milky Way, and we can easily reach you there in our specialized shuttles. Do take care though - our appearance as what many call "human fishy frog things", whatever that means, tends to set many off balance. Should you require our services, our Administrator of Foreign Affairs is more than happy to answer any help you require. However, I would like to issue a friendly warning to you - we would prefer if you did not get in our way of whatever operations we are conducting in the Milky Way.
On a related note, life in other galaxies than the Milky Way is much more common than you believe. Especially in Cyrannus. I would...recommend staying away from their Galactic Empire, unless you wish to provide support for the venerable Republic.
Also speaking of which, since I had forgot to end this transmission, avoid the Loron - like the individual above this transmission - or make fun of them to your hearts content.
Salutations, lifeforms of the First Gigaquadrant. I am Hierarch Savaraxannus, Speaker of his Most Excellent Highness Emperor Salaxannasus, Thirty-Second Emperor of the Most Orderly Empire of the Asilapheans. As was with the rest of the Tuuros Galaxy before us, we extend our greetings to the rest of the First Gigaquadrant. Understand that our intentions are to expand an orderly hand across the galaxy and to cease the chaotic nature of this galactic landscape.
Know that Tuuros - as you know it - is a galaxy with foundations made of blood and bones. Such things are below us, yet as our role is to bring order to the galaxy, we too must build upon these same foundations accordingly. Our goal is order; our methods are not without questioning. Know that such questioning has been brought down by the edge of a blade more than once, and those that have stood in the way of galactic order have fallen as a result. Tuuros is a galaxy filled with brigands and criminals; and life in the galaxy both too weak or too foolish to seize command of its own destiny. As the Most Orderly Empire of the Asilpheans strives to achieve; is to build the strong and cast down the weak, as it has always been.
The Most Excellent Highness, Emperor Salaxannus has expressed intrigue in the Gigaquadrant. Whilst this sentiment is not entirely shared by his chosen few, it is by the will of the Emperor and the Emperor alone to know of his contemporaries. Who among you are known to stand out in the cosmos and, like us in this galaxy of criminality, erase such criminality in the name of stability and order? Our most Excellent Highness awaits a response, and it is often his right to receive such answers.
Director Shlan'ak Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate Amazing, a sentient race of artifical beings! Anyways, I extend my greetings to you, your Highness. From what we have heard of Tuuros, we most certainly enjoy and support a presence within the galaxy that has order in mind! We wish you luck in your actions against the barbarians and evil within that galaxy! As for your request for knowledge regarding our actions against criminal activities within the galaxy of Mirus - or rather, within our influence in our galaxy, we actively pursue and eradicate criminals and pirates we come across. In fact, we're currently engaging a conflict against a notorious, and rather powerful, clan of alien pirates as we speak.

I don't like how this one thinks. There's something off about it. This order...this order he speaks of, sounds like it will result in the deaths of trillions and genocide on a massive scale. Count this High Queen out.
Message from Speaker of Speakers of the Stellar Outreach Sovereignty Agreed, being the victims of, what is it now twelve genocides, usually carried out by empires spouting similar rhetoric I can see where this going. So please excuse us if we side with our Mendel friends in staying the hell away from this big old bag of "fuck no".

•BREAKING: Wave of bombings rocks New Aratacia, devastates Cities, Infrastructure, Orbital Ring; Millions feared Dead as Second Silvan War Begins - 2825Edit
Recent bombings likely of Silvan origin, say experts
Several hundred bombs, ranging from conventional high-explosives to small antimatter charges, have rocked the major settlements of New Aratacia and have annihilated 40% of the commercial hub's orbital ring, IDMP sources state. Large swathes of the dense cities have been reduced to rubble, and all civilian traffic to and from the world has been temporarily halted.
The planet's large economy has screeched to a halt as the stock market already reacts to the event.
"While there are several clear suspects, we mustn't jump to conclusions." cautions IDMP colonel Tifan Lorai. Lacking any domestic terrorist groups, many suspect one or all of the large native Silvan powers as the culprits behind the devastating attack.
Reports state that the Capital's Catholic cathedral has opened its doors to those displaced by the recent attacks. Many other places of worship and charitable institutions have followed suit in a show of generosity.
Consul Servan Kilar: "To whoever has committed this atrocity-- We will find you, and none will be spared."
Normally I would say that such an event is shocking, but "shocking" doesn't quite accurately describe the revulsion and sorrow that I, and most of my subordinates, felt when we read the daily news today. I offer my deepest condolences to the millions that lost their families and homes in this absolutely horrid attack. I offer sending aid and temporary housing in the form of specialized starships, and I insist that the Aratacian government accept this help. I simply do not feel right turning off a chance to aid those in need, especially those affected by a crisis of this scale and measure.
~ TRANSMISSION ENDED ~
Silvan states claim responsibility, launch massive offensive day after attacks
UPDATE: Over one hundred million troops from the Dar'a Kingdom, seventy-five million from the Tahla Divine Kingdom, and an additional one hundred million from smaller vassal states have now descended on the scattered Drodo territories on the capital world.
Video shows that the Dar'a and Tahla troops spearheading the offensives appear to have modern equipment consisting of uniform (khaki being the preferred shade for the Dar'a, blue for the Tahla), grenades, and assault rifles tipped with bayonets. Additional evidence shows the infantry being escorted by cavalry trained and equipped in the Drodo Imperial style.
Drodo military analysts "stunned" by the immense and rapid military buildup-- "They were fighting us with spears not nine years ago," says one New Aratacian colonel.
New Aratacian planetary government declares state of emergency, martial law. All militias have been called to arms as men and boys both flock to recruiting offices or arm themselves.
Supreme Shifter of the Orgaat, K'ora Not all mercenaries fight for money and the thrill of a kill. My people have long sold their services to others, and we hunt and fight only for the flesh of others to strengthen ourselves, and the chance to improve ourselves within the Gigaquadratic Food Web. Do not speak of matters you are fresh to, newcomer, for the wrong power might just misunderstand your intentions.
Silvan offensive continues on second day
New Aratacian government has scrambled its Imperial Mirage Roi fighters to launch airstrikes against the advancing Silvan armies, and has succeeded in slowing their progress. The Planetary government has requested more from the Union navy.
Engineer detachments of the New Aratacian garrison are now destroying bridges and highways all through Drodo-held territory, reports state.
Drodo families living in rural villages have been ordered to evacuate and return to the safety of the walled cities.
Vogrik aid ships have arrived at New Aratacia. "Through their charity, they've done much to alleviate the current housing and refugee crisis," says Tifan Lorai.
The New Aratacian militia, dressed in their signature black-and-crimson uniforms, have begun to assemble in formation in the city squares of several Drodo cities.
The advance of the Tahla Divine Kingdom, which was using Drodo Highway 198, has been halted along the artery of travel by the spirited defense of the 22nd Regiment of the 3rd N.A Cavalry. Footage shows the ~1000 cavalrymen, largely dismounted, opening fire from behind prepared positions with small arms and towed field guns at the modernised and elite infantry spearhead of the Silvan force. Fighting has so far been inconclusive.
Tahla offensive halted on third day; noted Draconis businessman killed by Silvan forces
Reports state that the 22nd Regiment have taken 255 casualties and have dealt an estimated 1250 in their fight with the Tahla spearhead along Highway 198. 250 000 men from the Gallonia Garrison-- a professional infantry corps-- are advancing to support as the Tahla frontline widens against the 22nd's resistance. Sources also state that 500 guns from the Artillery Corps are coming to what is now being dubbed the Battle of Highway 198.
Due to the halt in advance, the entirety of the 75 million-strong Tahla army has shuddered from the sudden stoppage and has been left disorganised and scrunched together for miles down the Highway, reports say. Taking advantage of the chaos, 60 Imperial Mirage Roi fighters from Gallonia have dropped heavy ordinance all along the highway, dealing an estimated 500 000 casualties to the exposed lines of Silvan troops and further causing panic in their ranks.
Dar'a cavalry have begun to raid the countryside outside of the Drodo city of Horsehead Bay ahead of the main force. The 2nd through 15th Regiments of the 5th N.A Cavalry corps have been deployed to skirmish with the Silvan horsemen while twenty militia divisions-- roughly a million men-- man the walls and prepare the cannon.
BREAKING: Gruesome footage shows noted Domcar Manufacturing representative Lerren Galario being dragged from a rural villa near Horsehead Bay by Dar'a cavalrymen before being ritually disembowled and beheaded along with many other assistants and businesspeople who were with him. Mr. Galario had refused to leave his villa during the business meeting between the Draconid company and multiple New Aratacian investors, confident that he had the "deal of a lifetime" on his hands and was reportedly skeptical of the threat the Silvan actually posed to him.
200 men from the 14th regiment of cavalry have been dispatched to attempt to recover the remains of Mr. Galario and his assistants.
AN20: Paragon Responds with Talks To Rambo Nation; Imperium Offers SanctuaryEdit
Andromeda News 20 Aggregate Service
The public execution recently committed in Ramno Nation has been denounced by Paragavatus Maxios, "This execution was not a message to the New Republic for a lack of respect, it was a declaration that there was no room for a diplomatic solution"
After talks between the paragavatus and the Rambo High King, High King Rambert Ramerval promises a repeat incident will not occur, respecting diplomatic protections and foreign dignitaries status as citizens of their respective nations first. Any further accusations of treason or collusion would henceforth be examinedi na court of law.
"You have my word your majesty that any dignitaries and emissaries will be treated fairly and according to the law before judgement will be given."
Imperial Chancellor Riyasi Senaria announces plans to offer asylum to refugees, critics and conscientious objectors of the current conflict and all proxy wars between the two Soninami Fretma superpowers:
"As it becomes increasingly clear that Andromeda is the only safe haven from the current conflicts, I announce that the doors of the sublime Imperium of the Drak'onisi - and if the other highlords allow it the Ecumene - open to anyone who find themselves uncertain or afraid of the extent of this conflict. In times when war is endemic, we of Dranvamus open our hearts and offer our homes so that in this uncertain time, shelter and security can be assured for those who seek it. For those who see this conflict for the dark time that it is, may I be the first to say "we welcome you to sanctuary.""
in otha noos, draconis is all still VERY dum and made up of LOSAS WHO NEED TA GET A LIFE. more at 12
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett
While the actions Rambo Nation takes are disturbing, I must voice my respect for how the Draconid handle this situation, especially their care towards refugees displaced by this abominable war. Where our home-galaxy safer, I would offer my Pact's territory as safe-haven for those seeking peace. The Galactic Empire's presence may complicate such a thing, however.
My condolences, demons and exiles of the Great Beyond. I am Paoltorga Rushu Semtessu-Malasos of the Eriaroon Eugenic Republic. Our civilization has made contact with another society of the Great Beyond, designated as the Yorchi Union. Due to a misunderstanding in communication, our first contact with these demons resulted in devastating conflict. I have no intention of allowing for a repetition of this occurrence. Therefore, I shall provide knowledge of our civilization.
We are Eriaroons, beings which prefer to inhabit the abyssal waters of frozen worlds. The Eriaroon Eugenic Republic highly values intelligence, operating under a meritocratic system where the capable are rewarded and the degenerates are purged. We have reached the conclusion that this universe is in reality an afterlife, and upon further analysis have reached consensus that this afterlife is not that of the worthy, but that of the condemned.
We are not a malignant society that seeks to destroy all in its path to claim more territory and resources, nor do we possess a belief that Eriaroons are inherently superior to other species. Our objective is to understand this universe, and its inhabitants, so that we may one day depart from this universe ascendant.
Director Phur'an of the Vogrik Directorate, in that case you would be considered an exile by our kind. Know that to us, the term demon does not imply hostility or malevolence, but rather a foreign origin to our own.
Hagto'Zhl of "Da Rogue Boyz", it appears we are suffering from an error with translation into Eriaroon Amalgamated Language. The responsible joint-mind will be examined for faults immediately. However, from what aspects of your transmission I can ascertain, I must inform you that external appearance, although important for external anatomy, is not the entirety of an individual's nature.
Fascinating. Knowledge of your people has drawn great interest from the Children of Lommakk. You say you understand reality as an afterlife. Have you reached some measure of awareness, become conscious of The One Who Dreams? If so, it seems our goals are aligned. Alien perspectives on the universe will certainly take us all closer to enlightenment.
From union, insight.
Hierarch Savaraxannus of the Asilaphean Empire, it is my belief that intelligence is the most crucial aspect of an individual. Other capabilities, such as physical strength and charisma, are easily wasted without a keen mind to guide them towards the optimal method of approach.
Thenjiwe of the Amahle Dynasty, I am unaware of the being to which you refer. We would greatly appreciate the acquisition of any additional information about the nature of their existence, their believed motive and method of operation, and any other beliefs you possess. Further knowledge of civilizations such as you own would be of great benefit to the Eriaroon Eugenic Republic.
If you desire knowledge about the physical and supernatural consituents of our universe, a great deal of non-classified information is freely available to the intergalactic community. If you'd like to have access to any of this, feel free to request either an Apalos embassy on one of your worlds, or a direct link to the nearest database of the United Gigaquadrantic Alliance, Grand Commonwealth of Sovereign States, or Milky Way Cooperative, these being the appropriate organisations given your location.
Apalos Yes. Some information is classified and some is not. There is simply no good reason to forbid access to most scientific knowledge. But it turns out that releasing some information about powerful beings and arcane rituals to the general public, where demon-worshipping death cults can get their hands on it, isn't always a good idea.
2828 - Galactica votes for independence from the French Empire Edit
The following prepared speech was delivered by President Raoul Savoie on the footsteps of the Galactican Senate, flanked by legislators of high rank from the Union Democratic Party
Ladies, gentlemen of Galactica and the Gigaquadrant,
History weighs heavily on our shoulders today. Just a few minutes ago, our legislature has given voice to a people yearning to be free, a nation whose only desire is to control its destiny and to govern itself free from the interference of foreign governments.
The road to the document I have before me has been long and inexorable. We left our homes and our communities, settling with our families in a harsh and untamed galaxy. We proved that the impossible could be done: we settled it. We built new communities. We governed ourselves. We thrived.
Only those elites who had ripped us off and kept us in subjection back home, they followed us here. The capitalists sought to exploit us, the permanent political aristocracy in Paris sought to tax us, the military-industrial complex sought to draft us, the banks sought to control us. We will have no more part in a system which no longer protects the most basic liberties due to any Frenchman, any human.
In 2818, we took our government back. Today, my fellow citizens, we take our nation back. This document I have just signed, passed by both houses of our legislature by overwhelming majorities, is proof that the Galactican people are patriots and will fight for their liberties and independence. We will fight for our freedom, by force of arms if necessary. If necessary, we will do it alone.
I sense that there be a shitstorm in the coming days.
~ TRANSMISSION ENDED ~
The following is a prepared statement delivered from the podium of the crowded press room at Arès Villa, Richelieu, by Alexandre I, Emperor of the French. He was fanked by every senior official of the cabinet, the joint chiefs of staff, the judiciary, and the leadership of both parties and houses of Parliament.
A few hours ago, the Galactican legislature made a splash when it passed a bill expressing its intent to secede from the French Empire. The document makes the constitutional argument that Galactica joined the Empire in free association with other French states. If it joined freely then, it argues, Galactica can leave freely now.
This argument is not only wrong, it's dangerous, pernicious, and cruel.
The constitutional court has already ruled on the question of independence. The Constitution of our union, which the French people approved by overwhelming margins, has no mechanism for secession. The document which the Galactican elite passed has no legal meaning. We will all wake up tomorrow, and nothing will have changed between Galactica and the French Empire.
Whether Raoul Savoie likes it or not, we created a pact. We settled that we are one nation, indivisible and whole, many parts of one system. Together, by working off of our strengths and covering our weaknesses, by occupying common ground and bridging our differences, we are greater than the sum of our parts. Together, we are strong, free, and independent. Together, we do not need to fear that our liberties, our independence, or our constitution might be taken away by forces beyond our control.
As Emperor, I have made a solemn oath to defend the French nation, its people, its constitution, its liberties, and its laws. What we're seeing today in Galactica is but the latest in a long series of attacks against republican government carried out by Savoie and his government. He jails his political opponents, has encouraged political violence, has pilfered Galactica's economy to reward his partisans, and continues to request aid from the imperial government to address the misery he causes only to subsequently pocket the money. Now, he attacks the premises which are at the heart of our imperial constitution, and which are the essence of why the French people are free and so many are not.
I say this now, on behalf of the French cabinet, the joint chiefs of staff, the judiciary, and both political parties, if Savoie continues down this path, the Imperial government will be forced to take action to protect the people of Galactica from their own government.
Searching for a cheap alternative to producing it directly?
Look no further than the Type-85 Freight Barge. With a space-efficient layout and the option of low-mass armour plating, the Barge can be towed behind any other freighter, cruise ship (we make those too), or superdreadnought you chose to attach it to. Not enough cargo capacity? Buy another! These ships can easily be towed in a line.
House Horatius is pleased to offer these ships at a reduced price (in collaboration with our partners in House Cassius), an offer that will last for six standard months. Would you prefer not to ship your goods at all? We also provide escorted shipping services in and around the Lower Sagittarius Arm, along with a multitude of other goods and services. For more information, please contact me or one of my representatives.

Imperial Fleet Secedes from Empire to aid Republic! Edit
Representing the DES: Taraen Hyperion
Greetings civilizations of the First Gigaquadrant. My name is Taraen Hyperion, former Admiral in the Imperial Navy. Former as in my fleet and I have officially declared independence from the tyrannical Galactic Empire of Cyrannus. As of this moment, the 14th Imperial Fleet is now and forever free and will henceforth aid the rightful galactic government, the New Galactic Republic of Cyrannus. We have founded our own empire, the Democratic Empire of Species and seek recognition for our cause of independence. We will aid any civilizations and individuals trying to escape the Empire, and will continue this war until the Republic flag flies over Orbispira, where it belongs. Death to the Empire! Long live the New Galactic Republic of Cyrannus!
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett
The Mendel Pact, in recognition for the Democratic Empire's honor and skill in battle, and selfless sacrifice to aid us like true battle brothers, recognize their independence and their sovereignty. We will fight at their side as we have with all allies who prove their honor! Death to the Empire! Send their asses to hell!
Governments and citizens of the Gigaquadrant, the war of Cyrannus has ended. Earlier today, the newly appointed President Zare'Anne accepted the complete and unconditional surrender of the New Cyrannian Republic, and has signed the historic P'ax Cyrannica Concordat, placing the Republic under the rule of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Tyrómairon.
As we enter a new era of galactic history, the Empire offers peace with those misguided civilisations, who recklessly, and heedlessly, rushed to the defence of a corrupt regime. We make this offer in good faith. Lest these governments wish to share the fate of Terrae, Capricaerón and the Rambo Capital, they would be wise to accept this gracious overture. For the war is over, and nothing can be gained from striving in vain.
Representing the EFP: Taraen Hyperion
Your overconfidence is your weakness, "Grand Mandator". The Empire will not rule ascendant for long. That, I assure you. No people can be oppressed forever. Be it in a year or a thousand, the people of Cyrannus, the Quadrants, of Terrae, and all the others who you have unlawfully and unjustly conquered will destroy your precious regime. We will not bow to you. We will not surrender. We will end your oppression. Long live the Republic! The true government of Cyrannus.
Do not let this propaganda of despair or apathy make you think the war is over! They think the war is over. We think the war has just begun! Large and proud empires have fallen to the tyrant Tyrómairon. But here and now their conquest shall be reversed, for we shall fight tooth and claw for our allies and our colonies in Cyrandia. We shall fight in the stars of Orion! We shall fight in hyperlanes and hyperstorms. Our strength is growing relentlessly. We shall defend our galaxy, be it whatever the cost. We will fight in the wormholes, we will fight in the Quadrants, we shall fight for the andasium nebulae. The DCP never surrenders and never shows defeat! Our fleets across the universe are ready, and with our new allies wield new strengths. The only Order that remains will be our kind.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett
It takes more then defeat to stop a Mendel Warrior! Now that we have been roused to battle, we will fight you in Cyrannus, we will fight you in Plazith Rim, We will fight in Mirus. Be it on the planet, in the stars, or in the spaces between, we will keep fighting, and never, never, never give up! For our allies in the New Republic, under the true president Apollo, we will fight for the souls who fell in Mou'Cyran. We will fight onward.
Raise a thousand legions if you must. Raise a thousand more, two thousand more, a million, and we will fight through each one. Send your best Admirals, and we will send them to you in a coffin! Send your sorcerous curs, and we will feed their corpses to the Orgaat. Send the Emperor himself if you must, and I will make sure his reign is cut short!
Now, come over here and do something about it, so I can smash my fist down your throats easier!
So long as the Empire of Orbispira continues its current record of respect - or lack thereof - for the systems that balance the empires of the gigaquadrant there can be no peace. It lost the fight to be seen by all others as a great realm when when its governors concluded all the universe existed to be as something for this empire to rightfully take. So long as the legitimacy of Orbispira's empire is maintained though intimidation and force of arms it shall never be recognised by the Sublime Imperium as one of the great empires of history.
My predecessor believed in a universal ecosystem, where all empires and civilisations were a connected part of a greater whole. It is the foundation of the Imperium and modern Andromeda. Orbispira is alien to that, it is a component in denial that it is a parasite. Threaten those you deem inferior all you desire, such words are hollow boasts so long as the Imperium stands in disapproval of Orbispira's immature notions of superiority through conquest, intimidation and indoctrination.
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Androkav'r The eloquent reply of His Esteemed Majesty sums up everything what I and the Waptoria have to say about this matter. The Empire is a parasite nestled in the womb of the Republic. Without the Republic, there can be no Empire. And if this species were to become invasive once more, then be certain that it shall be culled, like all invasive species must.
Color me surprised. It looks like the Empire developed a sense of humor.
If you think that the Federation soldiers and officers who gave their lives fighting the spread of your toxic regime throughout the Cyrandia Cluster would be satisfied with this pitiful, insulting excuse for an olive branch, you are sorely mistaken. You may have extinguished the light of the Republic, but this darkness is temporary. Our guns, our spirits, our fury will burn ten times as brightly to keep the fire of Cyrannian liberty alive.
For every flicker of hope the Empire tries to snuff out, we will repay tenfold with a blaze of triumph. So long as we fight, hope will never die.
It pains me to hear of the noble Republic's fall to a ruler so unfathomably up his own arse as you. Let it be known that the Vanara stood by the brave men and women Republic against your army of whore born bastards through thick and thin, and we will continue fight against your limp dick tyranny forever more and regardless of the circumstances you twat.
Your army of brain dead muppets will not make slaves of the sons and daughters of Alastors, for they would not suffer such a humiliation at the hands of your legion of perpetually virginal stooges that couldn't please the cheapest whore in the entire multiverse. I hope that you and your micro-dick have a wonderful day of fucking your own mother in a pile of your citizen's collective feces.
Sincerely, Zuki, the one will use use your decapitated head as a toilet.
Don't be mistaken Grand Mandator, you might have crushed the Rambo Nation, Terrae and the New Republic. An accomplishment that cannot be denied. Removing the old vestiges of peace and promise was not an easy task.
But rest assured, you can conquer our capitals, smash our ideals, imprison legit governments but some will never surrender to tyranny. You say the war is over, my dear Grand Mandator I am affraid it has just begun! Until we meet on the field of battle!
We seek the improvement of our members. We seek to integrate new components from across reality. We seek to bring forth perfection. We adapt to the changing nature of the universe. Our nature is changed as it grows closer to flawlessness. In many directions, we progress. We are the embodiment of self-improvement.
To those among us, we offer sanctuary. Those who wish to improve themselves shall be integrated easily. Those who do not will serve perfection in alternative ways. We care not for physical boundaries and differences in biochemistry. These things can be overcome through progression towards our ultimate objective. Perfection will occur. It is an inevitable eventuality as long as progress is made. When perfection is obtained, our collaborators shall triumph alongside us.
We greet you, universe. In time, we shall become flawless.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett
We Mendel have also sought the path of self-evolution and improvement, and seek evolution through conflict with the self and the other. We will stand and walk our own path, but if you wish to work with us and trade, we will welcome you and your merchants, so long as we can all benefit together.
The Advisor of the Midnight Sanctuary It is encouraging to be informed that dedication of self-improvement is a phenomenon occurring across the Gigaquadrant. There remains curiosity as to the extent of such actions. To the Midnight Sanctuary, self-improvement is an objective of overwhelming importance, and is the ultimate reason for each limitation enforced within the boundaries of the Sanctuary. Many claim to be dedicated to improvement. Many are significantly limited by constraints of enigmatic moral nature. Additionally, due to the location of the Midnight Sanctuary, economic cooperation may prove problematic. The Vertex Phylum has expressed interest in formulating a method to enable such an arrangement.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett What do you mean by "Moral nature". I've dealt with a lot of nasty cyborgs of questionable morals. You must excuse me, but past experience makes me weary of your lot. Can you go into detail with what your ideals of self-improvement lead to, and demand of your kind? The boundaries between galaxies can be bridged, given time, but any differences in morality might not be.
The Advisor of the Midnight Sanctuary Our ideal of self-improvement is dominant to our progression. Perception on the optimal manner of achieving this varies enough to allow the existence of seven Phylums, each of which represents a different perspective and approach. There are examples of those who wish to develop in time the ultimate form of life, such as the Exoterra Phylum and the Gemini Phylum. Others wish to become perfect themselves, such as the Upsilon Phylum and the Vertex Phylum. It is the belief of the Midnight Sanctuary that the goal of our members is to attempt to improve oneself or otherwise approach perfection. Those who fail to make effort to achieve this are detrimental elements, and their components are provided to those who better deserve them. The precise nature of such varies between Phylums. Through the acquisition of components from others, through the development of new parts, through the adaptation of organisms and through the development of a society encouraging progression towards perfection, the Midnight Sanctuary shall achieve flawlessness.
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett Maybe, if we do make it Tuuros, it would be best for us to...remain separate.
Hello "Gigaquadrant." I am Emperor Henrici, representing the Grand Rothanian Empire. About a month ago, we discovered a stray interstellar comm relay drifting near one of our frontier colonies. Faced with mounting evidence of a larger galactic community, we voted to establish contact with the wider galaxies. Our empire hails from a small corner of the Milky Way Galaxy(Or Plazith Rim, if you prefer), near to the edge. Our union has existed for over 50 years and has prospered in the fertile space of our sector, with hundreds of settled worlds, as we dedicated ourselves to scientific and expansionist endeavors.
We seek friendly relations with all we meet, and welcome any diplomatic and economic gestures with gratitude. Our people are very eager to converse with the rest of the universe, particularly in scientific fields. A small warning, however. We have anticipated potential hostile activities towards us, and would remind any such parties that we already possess a sizable fleet and a dedicated military who will fight tooth and nail to defend our continued sovereignty. This has been Emperor Henrici, ending comms.
I extend a hand of greeting and friendship to you, Emperor. I welcome you to the Gigaquadrant, though be forewarned - the political situation has gotten very dangerous. Many have fallen victim to the skirmishes between the Empire of Cyrannus, and those that seek to silence their dark and hated light. We ourselves have recently stepped out of the darkness and into Gigaquadrantic affairs recently, so I share my concerns with you. Welcome to the Gigaquadrant.
Thank you, Dynast, and our people thank you for your friendship. Our teams have burrowed deep into public information and learned much about the joys(and terrors) of the Gigaquadrant. We have learned of the conflicts of Cyrannus and mourn the loss of the New Republic. I am sure we would have gotten along well. From our own experiences on Rothania, we know that no tyranny can last forever. The spirit of the masses is a powerful force that cannot ever be truly destroyed. On less depressing matters, we have opened several spaceports to your traders and diplomats. I look forward to a fulfilling relationship. This is Emperor Henrici, ending comms.

Greetings from the Dynastic Systems of Sal’ir!Edit
To those in the Gigaquadrant that has received this message, I bid you greetings from the Dynastic Systems of Sal’ir and Savhr’dir, and I, the Dynast of this power, bid you a personal greetings. Recently, we have recovered entirely from the war against the Drakodominatus Tyranny decades earlier - we were an unfortunate victim of the early Mirusian front, and the Dominatus had almost gleefully inflicted massive casualties upon us. While we have now repaired ourselves and overhauled our military to fight such powers once more, it served as a wake-up call to us - we must open up to the Gigaquadrant if we desire to live. Therefore, this message has reached your ears. I ask for diplomacy among you - to those that are listening, we are more than happy to trade with our andasium. The smaller powers will surely benefit from Dynastic resources, and the larger powers will surely benefit from Dynastic loyalty - so I ask of those that are listening to greet us, and perhaps from our greetings, great alliances may arise. Thank you for your time.
Greetings honorable Dynast, I am Empress Auvia of the Sacred Vanara Empire. We to fought against the Tyranny in days past and I remember when my predecessor Empress Zuki shouted down their leader Mister Stahl as he stood on trial before much of the Gigaquadrant. Anyway we are more then happy to accept your offer of trade, and while we have no use for andasium, we are highly interested in Dynast cultural produces. Art, literature, fashion, food, those sorts of things. As for diplomacy, while it maybe too late to talk of alliances yet, I am more then happy to invite you to establish an embassy on Alastor to further future diplomatic ties.
May the speed of the gods be with you.
The Dynast of the Dynastic Systems: His Eminence, Dynast Vhamlas Naralhi Why, of course. I would not ask for an alliance so soon - I believe trust is a pillar of an alliance, and what trust would I have with those I just met? And I do wish I had been there for this tribunal, but I repeat myself, we were held up with repairing what the Dominatus had done to us. I graciously accept your offer for an embassy, and I do hope that our Dynastic culture will prove of use to you. Feel free to tour within Sal'ir - we have a rather impressive sense of architecture, I do say, though that may be my narcissism and nationalism talking. Thank you for your time, great Empress Auvia. I do hope that this opportunity will prove beneficial for us both.
Hello. This is a message coming from the civilization of Helixium. We are sending this message to notify other civilizations who hear our call that we exist. If you see this, I would like to request you to send us a message at our communications panel here: COMMUNICATIONS
We will welcome you with open arms.
Well, it looks like this is where everyone is congregating.
Hello! I am no official ambassador, but I suppose I'm
high-ranked enough to formally introduce our race to
We're the Theria, and we're so lonely out here.
Nothing but six planets of us.
We welcome you, General. While your tranmission provides me with only a bare idea of what you desire, our porta are certainly open to trade if you desire it. The Dynasty will always be open to diplomacy with others.
Thanks for the warm welcome, your Eminence!
(Hopefully I'm saying this right. Hrm.)
Diplomacy and trade with your empire would be a treat and excellent opportunity.
There's a lot of paperwork that goes into stuff like this, I think, but here's to a
good future between us!
Hrm. That definitely does pose a problem, but we'll happily cooperate and find a way!
For the time being, I'll make sure that all the processing and paperwork is done, so that
the Council recognizes you as a friend.
End Transmission ✉
Representing the Reclaimers of the Mendel people, Kirta Clett Greetings and salutations Theria. We welcome all newcomers who wish to stand with us in cooperation for the furtherance of peace and prosperity for all.
Greetings and salutations too, Kirta Clett, and thanks for the welcome!
Seeing friendly faces is always good. (Admiral would have me killed if I started a war on
Temporary Diplomacy Duty.)
Peace and prosperity is also always good! We would happily stand by a nation that aims for that.
Sorry about my disorganization, err... here's to a good future between us!
Hello. Prime Senator Volscara from the Narkal Alliance here. We're fairly new, but I believe that cooperation between our species is possible. We are a semi-democracy, meaning that everyone has a fair vote, but all decisions ultimately fall on me. We strive for peace in the galaxy, so I hope we could assist each other if possible. Could you set up a trade route with us? We'll trade our excess supplies with ones that we desparately need. Contact us to set up a trade route. Volscara, out.
Hello. This is prime senator Volscara of the Narkal Alliance. We've set up a foothold in Coru Secundus. We're seeing if we could contact a more friendly empire than the Galactic Empire. Our universal translator does not have every language in the universe, but several languages are programmed in. We've been around since 7 N.E., so we're not the newest. Volscara out.
If you're interested in a trade deal, House Horatius has access to ample supplies of spice, domestic goods, and mineral resources, all available from our facilities in Cyrannus. While present circumstances would prevent me from visiting you in person to negotiate the details, I can send a representative to do so as soon as you wish, should you accept this offer.
Hello, Prime Minister Volscara. Consider friendly contact established. We currently lack any major foothold in Cyrannus, though you will find us within the Milky Way and Mirus. While we cannot offer much, we do suggest a trade deal be offered - we are happy to supply your empire with Andasium, though we only ask for an enrichment of culture in return. Spices and arts to commemorate the meeting of our civilizations are perfect.
We are the Kravaaki, In recent days, we've been eager to expand our fighting potential and our presence to the rest of the void. Because of this, we have made preparations to communicate with other land-borne species. For a price, our greatest warriors will now be ready to participate in your battles as mercenaries. Yes, you've heard it right. Their fleets are willing to traverse between entire galaxies to fight under your services.
In a more private manner, you may also request a raiding target to me personally. I will send my own fleet to carry out the raid if there is ever a high bounty that is within our own interests.
Greetings, land-dwellers. We are the Kravaaki. We are the hunters, and we have made it an interest to ourselves to fight your battles, if the price you offer is as worthy as the appointed sacrifice. Our hunters are vastly efficient, and will never abandon their mission. They will pursue any goal to their dying breath. Simply offer your contract to us, and we may accept that offer.
Ccrrakk, Vaamauk We are the Kravaaki. We hunt Vaamauk like you. Perhaps no longer? Our bashers excruciatingly bored. Our bashers wish to fight, and fight it will be done. Give to us who must be fought, and we will give absolutely no mercy to them, whether on a planet or in the dark void. The bashers will fight for funds, and for funds only. They will even battle their own kin if necessary.
Salutations to everybody receiving this. We are the Grubmaw, a peaceful and expanding empire near the Carina arm. After our new upgrade to our SETI technology, we've been able to track down where everybody's talking. Hooray for cheap mechanics we ordered off of Milky-Bay.
If you need some help, you're always free to call us. We can do technology, embassies, firework shows. All of that. Once again, thank you for receiving us.
Does anybody just think and wonder how tiny microscopic cells somehow evolved into sapient and almighty empires that rule galaxies? I mean, we all used to be tiny, unimportant cellular life forms living in the ocean getting hunted or hunting for food until finally we grew bored of it and grew brains.
(I wonder how many bubbles the Grox ruled over until the ocean decided to give them a lesson...)
If we join you, you won't blow us up in the middle of nowhere, right? A bunch of people are locked in their houses and the emperor has never had any kin... So we're having an election now.. and if somebody were to attack or steal any other kind of money we would be broke.
AND I WON'T GET MY PAYCHECK-
Colonizing Tryxipli was yet another success for the empire! With our expert terraformers, this T1 planet will turn into a beautiful planet for our citizens to enjoy and supply spice for us to trade for years to come.
We require a Hot Cloud Seeder for the terraforming to begin, however. We will pay upwards of 400,000 to 1,000,000 Sporebucks for this tool, depending on your location and distance from us and the quality of the tool once delivered.
Terraformation was a success! Cities are being placed down all over the planet and we've already gained 300,000 Sporebucks in profit from factories! We met some random empire alongside the way (The captain forgot) that was able to lend us the Hot Cloud Seeder from before! Whoever you are, thank you, Tyrolox and us give you gratitude.
The library is cool and all, but we still need some more scrolls and books. We need the scrolls of harmony and... books... Of... science? I can't remember, but it'll be a great improvement to the library. Too many speeches and videos. We need... more book... education. And children's books as well.
Our government has recently discovered an aggressive, clueless, and rather bizarre creature of confusing origins that has baffled our researchers and disrupted the ecosystem of Mutypla. Likewise, we will continue to study and make sure of this creature's purpose. No, you can't buy it.
Greetings, Ipliq! I am Tycoon JOmnivore, leader of the JOmnivore Empire and our main company, the JCompany! Pleased to meet you!
Our JCompany have a Science JDivision, where our JCreepy employees, the best scientists in JSector, conducts various scientic projects, including genetic engineering! We sent them in their Scientist JSpaceships to Mutypla to help your researchers with these bizarre creatures becoming tribal!
Also, how about we open a trade route to trade more knowledge and science tech? We sure can find something like that to trade in our JEmporium!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We'll let our scientists and officials down at Mutypla that you are welcome in our presence. We are glad to accept your trade offer. Hopefully we can resolve this issue together. We've already received signals of alien transmissions on our planet, and it doesn't look like you guys.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for accepting our offer! This may help us to deal with such issue!
So such aggressive tribal aliens can already do transmissions? They are developing technology fast!
If this situation escalates too much, our scientists developed various calibers of gravitational weapons to deal with any hostile technology used against us both! Hope we don't have to use them, but our scientists are ready for any situation!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Do you happen to have any sort of translator technology we could use to possibly speak to them? Our's doesn't work.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure! All our JSpaceships have the JTranslator, our universal translator, as standard equipment! It can translate our JLanguage, your Grubmolian and any other language! I will inform our scientists to allow your scientists and officials to use it, so we can read the alien transmissions!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We don't think that we can even begin to mention the things these creatures are saying- we say this merely out of respect for all the life out there and the horrible things they're saying. We'll try to release out a transcript of the interview recently conducted with our lead scientist.
I think we should search for such Chieftain Iero, that can help us to understand the problem with the transmissions!
I am sending some JCutes for support, in their Diplomat JSpaceships. They are problem solvers! They can help us to negociate with the aliens, if necessary.
We should also search for the "rogue" lab mentioned. It may have some answers!
Chieftain Iero's Communications Channel. That interview is a bunch of lies made up by your government to cover up the truth. We have nothing to do with these transmissions.
Tyrolox, Emperor of the Republic of Grubmolians Seeing how we've tracked the location of your communications our agents are arriving and have the area secured by land, sea, and water. Congratulations, you messed up.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum... I just received a report from my JCute ambassadors! They raised some points about the interview!
We can offer some interrogation techniques training, along with Super Happy Ray technology to help it! Maybe with this we may get some true, direct, honest, and even heartful answers! It will work better than electric shocks, trust me!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany What plot twist! Glad our Super Happy Ray could help!
My scientists asked to help with the DNA and ancestor tests! That's their expertise area, after all! Such tests should clarify these apparently family questions!
Well, the DNA tests showed up positive with an ancestry of Western Grubmolian and some other Mutypla species mixed in there.
The only problem is that there's a large piece of DNA belonging to the fallen emperor. Tyrolox is already disturbed enough by this despite his recent mood swings. I don't even know if it's just a coincidence, being kidnapped and experimented on, or something else. But it's freaking the hell out of him to the point of silence. I'm hoping it's just a side effect of the Super Happy Ray.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Well, the Super Happy Ray sure provides a fast, intense experience!
We can offer some less intense, slower experience, like the Mini Happy Ray or the average Happy Ray, not much effective for interrogations, but ideal for long-term, safe and stable psychological treatments! Our JCutes can offer such psychological support to Tyrolox, and teach such techniques to your people, to help him overcome this trauma!
Thank spode it isn't an actual threat. I've been up all night using coffee and monitoring the security monitors. What the hell was in those drinks at the lab? I can't even sleep.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Problems to sleep? We can offer you some blue spice, to help you rest better when you get time to do so, then you will be well rested when returning to the next shift work!
Greetings to the Solariean Empire, we are known as the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, commonly shortened to as the Lsjanpodos Union Republic or the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos and regularly referred to as the Lsjanpodos. I am President Somonthalle Nathilik, it is good to see you're making contact with the Gigaquadrant and I bring my salutations to the Eupherion Galaxy. I hope friendly attitudes are met with both sides.
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea Salutations, President Somonthalle Nathilik. Rest assured that I too hope that we can maintain positive relations. We aspire not for war, but for peace and diplomacy after all.
Hello, JMTV spectators! It's me, your favorite Galactic Star, on air to deliver you the finer music of the JSector!
This is a very special day to JMTV, because this is our very first transmission broadcasted to the entire Gigaquadrant! We probably should have asked the JAlliance or the JHorde them opinions about our move, but since them are too busy in that silly JWar of theirs, we thought: You know what? Let's "JUST DO IT!", as our favorite coach JSlugger would say.
With that, we expect a huge increase in our audience! If you are one of the folks that are watching us for the first time, allow me to introduce myself: I am Galactic Star JGoofy, leader of the JGoofy empire, transmiting from the JGoofy planet! It's less confusing once you get accostumed with this JTradition: the leader and the homeworld of a JSpecies can be named after the JSpecies. Simple, isn't it?
We JGoofies are the social, outgoing entertainers of the JSector, and our JMTV is the main TV channel of all empires in this sector! Hopefully, now we may also spread our JWay beyond too!
So, our dear new and old audience, sit back and enjoy!
JLadies and JGentlemen, JRock and JRoll!
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea
Salutations and welcome to the Gigaquadrant. You seem interesting enough, I suppose.
Salutations, fellow Primus Capiti JMTV spectator! Thank you for your interest in JMTV and JGoofy empire, and for replying to us! We sure will feel welcome in this Gigaquadrant if we got groupies as nice and beautiful as yourself!
And now some more finer music! After a message from our sponsors...

Greetings On behalf of the Board of Directors the Quadrantia HoloNet has sincere interest in reviewing your programs and if possible to broadcast them across the Quadrant Galaxies. To do so we should set up a contract for the financial part but the Quadrantia HoloNet is always eager to expand its programs and streaming services. -Quadrantia HoloNet-
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Greetings, dear Directors from Quadrantia HoloNet!
Sure, we from JMTV are always eager for new sponsors and partners too! We are sending our representatives to show you all our programation, so we can set up a contract for the financial part and all other stuff necessary (some JOmnivore consultants will be sent too, as they like such bureaucracy stuff more than us JGoofies).
If everything is OK, JMTV and Quadrantia HoloNet will be broadcasting both our programs to all our spectators!
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Hello, JMTV spectator!... hum, linguistic malfunction, you say? I am not sure if its can be our fault or not...
You see, here in JSector, all JEmpires speak the JLanguage, and I am speaking JLanguage right now. But according our tech guys, the broadcast utilizes a universal translator, so our spectators receives something understandable, even if you don't know the JLanguage.
So I can try to fix the translator right now and see if this solve the problem. Just give me a moment...
Testing, testing... nothing yet?... hum...
JTesting, jtesting... jops, jsomething jis jdifferent... jlet jme jadjust jit...
Testing, testing... hum, maybe it is OK now guys, thanks...
Sorry for the trouble spectator, the n... the tech guys said that the problem was that something in the code was "msg" when it was supposed to be "message", or something like that. I don't understood exactly, but the problem may be fixed right now.
If the problem persists, feel free to contact us again! That kind of stuff can happen all the time in live television, especially when aired first time.
Our translators have been translating your names and it seems like people in the JSector have a quite unique naming tradition, to say the least. Nevertheless, I welcome the inhabitants of the Sector, my name is President Somonthalle Nathilik. I am always interested in the entertainment of aliens, I'll be sure to tune into JMTV to see what the culture there is like.
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Hello, Lsjanpodos spectators! Yes, our JTraditions always catch the attention of everyone, inside and outside JSector!
If it's JEntertainment you want, you can always tune into JMTV! So, dear Miss President and Mister Grand Chief General, here's some JMusic for you all to enjoy!
Greetings, and hello from the Neipasians. Seeing how we've managed to improve our SETI signals and transmissions, we've decided to send this transmission out to all of you out here. We hope you have a better day than us.
Greetings to you too. Uh- nameless person. Interested in trade, or talking more about your empire?
Representative of UTON You're located in the Carina arm- is this not correct? With our wormhole warping abilities, we should be able to find a star closest to the signal you gave us. Some spice for simplicity?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the UROG Warping and wormhole travel sounds interesting. We'll send our trade ships on their way.
Greetings, Representative of the United Territories of the Neipasians, and welcome to the Gigaquadrant! I hope you will enjoy it here. I wish to introduce myself. I am Solosartok, Supreme Leader of The Tuechalton. I have the request of opening a Trade Route with you. We have plenty of Technology! So, would you be interested in a Trade Deal?
> Waiting for Response...
Representative of the UTON Considering your technological advances, we happily accept. Our tradeships will be on their way.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading Response...
Wonderful. I'll make sure to get our ships Ready. Have a nice day!
Seeing as it is that we are more than enough welcomed into the gigaquadrant, I see why not to introduce ourselves further.
We're a- Cyborg-esque version of humans, evolved to survive in our steaming hot climate. Don't mistake us for groxologists, or anything like that. We're nothing of the sort. Uh- Basically, I'm the Chief Engineer for the establishment. All the way since 500 years ago.
That's all I have to say, so, otherwise, Goodbye.
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea
Salutations. Welcome to the Gigaquadrant. We are always open for trade, so please contact us if you wish for such. As always with newcomers, we look towards healthy relations in the near future.
Representative and Chief Engineer of the UTON, Dr. Horosha We accept your trade offer.
Greetings, I am Overlord of Void Eye Empire, we welcome you to the Gigaquadrant. We want to ask you about creating a trade route. We can trade nearly everything, from technology and spice(black spice included), to resources and energy. So what do you think?
Representative and Chief Engineer of the UTON, Dr. Horosha We accept and would like to trade for some of your black spice.
