An attempt of the Nakturan Stratocracy to find the aliens

Post by Caspoi on Sun Jul 17, 2016 3:06 pm

While the discovery of the Alien probes brought proof of the existence of intelligent aliens none had as of yet been found. Divine Warrior Baggloch has sent out Captain Ensdoch to find where they came from and if there are more of them.

[The Contact with Dragonsploof does not seem to be going anywhere and I want to do something with the Nakturians.]

The small Xengari flotilla was charged with detecting threats to the United Lordships before they entered Akreonic space. However the commanding officer of the flotilla was not pleased. Stuck with two corvettes and four dinky patrol boats he felt that he might just be able to defend against a sufficiently small rock. Admittedly the corvettes were new however one would be leaving at their next stop back in Xengari space. While he, Captain Khryn, Low Lord, wished to get back into the might of civilization he definitely didn't want to lost the other corvette, as he himself would stay on the Glorious Dawn here on patrol duty.

In any case the Science Officer had detected some anomaly and they were waiting here till clearer results manifested. Undoubtedly it would just be another sensors glitch and he would have to put it into his report. It likely wouldn't be anything more, right?

As Captain Ensdoch's ship entered the system they caught sight of the Xengari ships on the radar. As the captain took in that they had now found what seemed to be manned vessels his second in command Ramhoch asked him what to do.

"Transmit the coordinates for this system as well as the news we have found back home. Then signal to the ships and approach them but keep us ready to enter hyperspace if they turn out to be hostile."

"Will do captain. Will you ask them about the drones as well?"

"Of course, but all in good time."

Then he sat down and began playing with his longsword while watching the ship's computers for more Readings while thinking about how he and his crew might soon be the first Nakturians to meet aliens other than the bakteria on the world Endcha.

As alarms and warnings rang out on the bridges of the Xengari vessels, orders were given to approach the alien vessel and to answer it's signal with a Xengari acknowledgement one, not that they expected the aliens to know it's meaning. As well weapons were kept prepared but not overtly so, just in case the aliens were not hostile.

Aboard the Glorious Dawn Captain Khryn rested on his cushion thinking of what new monstrosity would greet them.

"Captain, the aliens have sent a return signal."

"Very good, what does it say?"

"Nothing that we can discern, however we now know what wavelengths they send their signals on."

"Hm, well use this to send them a picture of the drones we found as well as the location of the systme where we found them to see if they recognise this."

"Yes, captain."

As information regarding the appearance of the Alien ships had been gathered in by now Captain Ensdoch began watching them and compare them bothe to the drones as well as the Nakturan ships.

There is some confusion aboard the Xengari vessels as images of other alien constructs are sent possibly drones of some sort. Perhaps they were looking for them? It didn't matter. The Xengari know what matters is why the aliens approach Xengari space.

The two Xengari Corvettes were of sleek, dark and generally marine like design, not a single hard line to be found on their hulls. The four patrol boats were significantly smaller, many times smaller then the corvettes, but they were capable of great bursts of speed, useful for catching the occasional smuggler or such but not much good for anything else. They were sleek and a lighter mix of colors, much more so than the corvettes. They all continued to approach together towards the lone alien vessel.


Captain Khryn orders a message sent to the alien vessel. It shows the alien vessel with the drones transposed near by the image of ship. There is a line connecting the image of the drones and the image of the alien ship. It was an open question asking if the drones and the aliens were connected in some way.

While the message of the picture was understood it was found to be incorrect. The Nakturan ship sent back a picture of the drones with a line connecting them to the aliens, although at this point they doubted that they were connected.

[forgot to mention previously but the Nakturians can't see any colours and this is reflected in that their Pictures are all black and white and pretty low quality]

Captain Khryn orders a return message, an image of the drones, and the Xengari flotilla far away from each other with no lines connected. In addition they send this image as monochrome as the aliens seem to have the courtesy or ability to send in color, a seeming common fallacy among some alien species.

After this image is sent an animation is sent containing the a view of the current solar system with the various systems around it connected by hyperlanes. After a few moments the alien vessel is shown to be leaving going down one of the hyperlanes away from Xengari space. Xengari space isn't marked that is just the direction. They are attempting to get across the idea of the alien vessel leaving. Soon the animation is over, ending as the alien vessel hasn't reached a system yet.

Onboard the ship the Nakturians are pretty dismayed.

"It does not seem as if the aliens are connected to the drones at all, lituenant. It should mean that there are more in the close area."

"Yes captain, however they do not seem to want to have us."

"But we haven't even properly met them! Can't they understand how important this moment is and how rude it is to dismiss us? Slow down the ship and start backing but don't enter hyperspace yet. Try to send a picture of one of our species."

"Which one?"

"Divine Warrior Baggloch would probably leave a good impression."

The following picture is of a two meter tall creature with slightly transparrent skin and luminous innards. It has a head but no actual eyes or other discernable face, instead it has tentacles for a hair that while following the spine downwards seem to be pointing their ends in all directions. The ends themselves also give of a slight light. Under the head there is a slight opening that is probably a mouth. the creature has four arms, the two upper arms holding a longsword, point down into the ground. It's lower right arm holds the pommel of a sheathed shortsword. The remaining arm is holding what appears to be a notepad, as if the creature is holding a speach. A shield is on it's back. It has two legs and six toes as well as fingers.

After some disgust after the picture was brought up onto various viewscreens the Captain orders a return message sent. One inviting the aliens to discourse as they appear to refuse to leave without having such, and admittedly destroying the vessel of an unknown power was not a very good idea if one had the opportunity to gather more intelligence information. The scene is once again the system alien ship and the Xengari flotilla

In the animation the Alien ship ceases motion and the Xengari flotilla approaches. The Xengari flotilla moves close to the alien vessel before one of the corvettes split off from the flotilla as it stops very close by. The Xengari corvette moves near the alien vessel and docks with it. Once docked the view focuses on the two ships and a few small replicated images of the alien are appear on the alien ship and move to the Xengari corvette. They are attempt to give across the idea of the aliens visiting the Xengari vessel. As that seems to be the best way of achieving the goals of the Xengari.

The Xengari flotilla continues it's approach to close with the alien vessel with their weapons ready, but not targeting, the alien ship.

This new message seemed to be much more friendly towards the Nakturians and the tenseness of the situation lifted somewhat. Ensdoch in particular seemed rather smug about it.

"See? With a bit of prodding I knew that they would come around."

"Perhaps captain but I want to remind you that this could very well be a trap to capture some of us."

"Mayby but I think that even a few of us could handle ourselves quite well against the size of the crew of such a ship. Send back the same film to the aliens to show of our approval of the plan."

The Xengari flotilla continues to approach the alien vessel eventually stopping close by and the Corvette move forwards and dock with the alien ship. It docks with a cargo dock as that is the only doc which fits the Xengari airlock portion along the Corvette.

The Xengari await the boarding of the Aliens with a small amount of Xengari, and a large amount of Robots. The dock opens up into a large room with very high ceilings and a fairly wide open space. If one had the appropriate equipment they would see the large amount of robots of many kinds blended into the walls. The Xengari await as a party of three, Captain, Science Officer and Head Xenologist, all in environmental suits despite the easily breathable atmosphere.

Captain Ensdoch as well as four other Nakrurians walk aboard. They too are wearing enviromental suits that seem quite flexible as well as form fitting. There was no transparrant opening where there should have been a face but there was for the tantacles, which where swirling around and giving of their small lights. They all held their longsowrds in the same posture as the nakturian on the Picture and were completely silent, only giving of small blinks of light with their tentacles.

After the boarding of the Nakturians multiple things happened. One they are bombarded with Ultrasonic pings from the Xengari party, two at set intervals two meter tall bipedal robots begin marching out in two lines, one from the the wall to the right of the Nakturians the other line from the wall to the left of the Nakturians. The robots stop well before reaching the Nakturians, the fall to one knee folding their left arm across their chest and their right arm points out to the Xengari party. After the robots have done this the Xengari party, their environmental suits obscuring any actual vision of the Xengari themselves, slowly start to move forward to nearer to the alien party of five.

Behind the Xengari are several robots hovering, likely due to magnetics or some such device, as though as servants or other assistants for the Xengari. The Xengari stop well before reaching the Nakturians, awaiting their response. Captain Khryn is front center while the science officer is to the left, from the point of view of the Nakturians, and the Head Xenologist is to the right. However there are no differentiating marks on the suits. Leaving the three meter tall, a little less than two meter wide and six meter long suited figures in front of the Nakturians, with rows of the biped robots to either side.

Captain Ensdoch steps forward. He makes no sound but the tentacles countinue to twirl and emitting lights. he then stands there in front of the robots as well as their alien masters.

Captain Khryn watches the Nakturian step forward and as he stands he rotates his leftmost head so as to get a better view of the alien. After a few moments he folds his rightmost head across his chest in the Xengari form of saluting an equal or subordinate. The Ultrasonic pings continue from the Xengari, an almost constant background pinging.

The Robots and the two other Xengari remain in their positions.

Ensdoch mimics what he presumes to be a gesture of greeting by putting his lower right arm on his chest. He still does not emit any sounds.

Amused by the seeming mimicry Captain Khryn motions with his left arm to one of the marine-like floating robots behind him, it moves forward showing an animation of the group of Nakturians following the Xengari further into the ship. As the animation ends the Xengari simply move back further into their ship, not waiting to see if the Nakturians follow. The floating servant robots follow the Xengari but the bipedal ones that are still in their positions still haven't moved.

The Ultrasonic pings continue as the Xengari have one of their heads pointed back towards the Nakturians, 'seeing' what the Nakturians will do with Sonar. The various robots are transmitting via radio to other locations in the ship, the feeds are directed to Security and Xenology, each for their own purposes.

The Nakturians follow the aliens, still holding their longswordsin their upper arms. Endcha signals to the others that that they are to hold their Shields instead of swords as it may look less threatining to the aliens.

The Xengari lead the Nakturians down a large passage way easily big enough for the massive Xengari, however as the go many side passages much too small for the Xengari but big enough for several Nakturians to walk down side by side or perhaps the Xengari bipedal robots. At each of these passages there are several of the Bipedal robots awaiting, blocking the way down the those halls. In addition to these side passages there are many other passages or perhaps vents of a smaller nature perhaps allow access for some robots of creature yet unseen? Eventually they come to a large intersection of passage ways large enough for Xengari however all but the one directly to the right are again blocked by the bipedal robots. The Xengari party leads the Nakturians down the passage directly to the right and from there into a room.

The room has various viewscreens and other devices no doubted intended to ease communication, there are three large cushions no doubted intended for the Xengari, as they make their way to them, as well as five smaller cushions, a little bit larger than the Nakturians, sat in a cluster opposing the three large cushions. In addition to this there are roughly two dozen of the Bipedal Robots in the room lining the walls near the three large cushions, they are colored beige unlike the previously seen bipedal robots which were colored a dark blue. As well there are various devices of unknown design and unclear purpose held by the two dozen or so bipedal robots in the room.

After having first examined the cushions for contraptions the Nakturians sit down and watch, f such a Word could be used, the Xengari intently. They have still not ttered a single word.

The Xengari move to rest upon the three cushions, upon arriving on them they fold their long body around in a curled roll with their torso on top, "sitting" on the rest of their body as they are on the cushion. As they do this the view-screens light up with an animation.

The animation first shows a slightly stylized Xengar in a dark blue, and a slightly stylized Nakturian in yellow standing facing each other. First the Xengar 'speaks' emitting in the animation a wave of sound represented by vertical lines moving out from the Xengar to the Nakturian. The Nakturian responds by 'speaking' emitting in the animation a wave of sound represented by horizontal lines moving out from the Xengar to the Nakturian. Then the animation switch to a version of the same initial image, the Xengar and Nakturian facing each other, but this time with a box in between them. The box is half dark blue and half yellow. Again the Xengar 'speaks' emitting in the animation a wave of sound represent by the vertical lines, but they move to the box and stop. The dark blue portion of the box illuminates, then goes dark as the yellow portion illuminates then goes dark as the box emits horizontal lines towards the Nakturian. The process is repeated when the Nakturian replies, yellow lighting then dark blue then vertical lines.

The animation switches to a stylized Xengar with a box that is not colored. The Xengar 'speaks' again vertical lines, the Xengar keeps doing this as the box slowly fills to half Dark blue. Then the Xengar picks up the box and moves, the screen follows where the Xengar move to a Nakturian there the Xengar sets down the box, between Xengar and Nakturian.

As this animation occurs the bipedal beige robots in the back begin moving around some equipment before, as the animation finishes, moving it between the Xengari and Nakturians, and connecting it together after a little work they move away leaving the large connection of devices between Xengar and Nakturian.

The Animation's intent was to communicate the idea of a translator and the need of the Nakturians to speak so as to be able to translate between the two species. The Xengari hope they got across such a message, though so doubt the aliens would be capable of understanding, especially considering the lack of any detectable communication with the Nakturians.

The Nakturians Stay silent, although they do give of mulltiple blinks from their tentacles. Captain Ensdoch assumes that the pictures are menat to represent some form of Communication but is not entirely sure what and has not yet realised how exactly the aliens transmit their messages.

After a seeming lack of response to the question Captain Khryn orders the Science Officer to replay the animation. The Head Xenologist brings up the lights over radio.

"Captain, I think they may communicate either with those light-tendril-things or at least use them in some fashion, they certainly don't seem to use sound very much at all."

Captain Khryn replies. "Alright set up program to track the 'light-tendrils' to determine if there is any sort of pattern there. Tell me if anything note worthy comes up."

As the Head Xenologist states an affirmative and starts radioing back to Xenology to coordinate his plan the Captain pings the aliens once more, 'seeing' them with his sonar, this was gonna take a while.

(Sorry for taking so long to reply, I had some job stuff that I needed to focus on.)

[Understandable]

As Ensdoch had now established that the aliens used sound Waves to communicate he pointed first at their mouths then at his own tentacles, giving of a few blinks with them.
