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.

After the demonstration from the Nakturian Captain the Xengari Head Xenologist coordinates an alteration to the animation, replacing many of the horizontal lines representative of the aliens speech to glows of the tentacles of the aliens. This revised animation is then shown in an attempt to reach understanding with the Aliens. As this new animation is shown some more equipment is brought out of one of the walls, presumably simply a false wall used for storage, the equipment which appears to be a set of lights, is hooked into the already impressive array of devices between the Xengari and the Nakturians. The beige bipedal robots move back into their positions once they have accomplished this task. The Xengari await the Nakturian response to their new request, for the Nakturians to communicate amongst themselves in their strange light communication, hoping the intent of such a message is brought across.

Ensdoch gives a few tentative blinks, unsure what the aliens were wanting exactly, one of his companions seems more enthusiastic however and frequently gives of different kinds of blinks, presumably forming some kind of sentance.

The Viewscreens replay video of the Nakturians who gave the most blinks, different viewscreens start showing earlier images of Nakturians with their lights. Some of the viewscreens start playing the modified animation again. The Xengari Head Xenologist is coordinating with the Xenology department to get the Nakturians to continue to cooperate.

Happy to be at the center of attention the nakturian countinues to give of blinks of light. The others are looking at him rather crossly.

The Xengari viewscreens begin to change their animations to include the other Nakturians hoping to get more points of contact with this light based for of communication so that it might be understood within a time frame that would allow for the Xengari to communicate with the beings. The Head Science Officer is a little off-put to be left out of such but they merely listen to and make suggestions as the Xenologists work on the animations. The Captain is grfowing increasingly irritable at these "insensate aliens".

(Sorry again for the very late response, was doing user testing on websites for a while ad coordinating such. Should be able to continue regularly with this for the next few weeks with a few brief interruptions and slow downs.)

Ensdoch and his companions once again gave away a few signals, this time pointing at things before giving away their blinks so as to show what they were transmitting.

The Xengari simply continue to record and process the information. They prompt the Nakturians when necessary and use the viewscreens to show objects and concepts that cannot easily be shown with what is in sight. The Xengari attempt to continue this discussion for as long as they can as their correlation program has less points of contact that it can use to determine the language structure. The estimate of how long the translation should take is at two hours if proceeding at current pace.

(I'll leave it up to you whether the Nakturians get bored before then or simply continue to cooperate ad we do a time skip or something.)

After around two hours of working on the alien language it is finally translated. A message is sent out from the Captain in the alien light based speech, translating his words.

"Greetings aliens. This is Captain Khryn of the Akreonic vessel Glorious Dawn. To who do I speak to?"

The leader steps forward:
"I am Captain Ensdoch of the Nakturan scouting vessel Warrior Spirit. We have come here in search of intelligent life. We have already found some scouting drones but we gather that those were not yours?"

Captain Khryn turns his heads towards Captain Ensdoch.

"Greetings Captain Ensdoch, you must be pleased to have found intelligent life. The United Lordships does not use scouting drones, you might look elsewhere."

"I am pleased over the success of this mission, yes. True, we did not find the aliens we were looking for but we found others instead which works just fine. May I ask which warrior you reffer to? Who is the leader of your nation?"

Though the alien's phrasing was odd Khryn thought he understood what the disgusting creature meant.

"Overlady Vetnay currently leads the United Lordships. I would turn that question back upon your own being, 'Who is the leader of your nation?'"

"That would be Divine Warrior Baggloch, leader of the Nakturan Stratocracy and first among it's council."

He reflected that it might not be the wisest decision to start telling complete aliens about the leadership of his society but as they were doing the same fair was fair, it would certainly be good for establishing relationship with them.

"I wonder, would you be so kind as to initiate an exchange of information among our respective realms, for instance what knowledge do you have about the galaxy at large, which star systems are inhabited?"

Captain Khryn listened to the alien's speech detailing a little more of the image of this threat to the Lordships. Upon the second request from the alien he responds.

"We doubt such an exchange between our realms would be fair. In any case before talk can begin on such matters we have to confirm something. You did not intend to trespass in Akreonic space? You were merely attempting to find another alien race and your efforts led you to this unauthorized breach of the Akreonic sphere of interests?"

Captain Khryn merely thinks that accidentally finding Akreonic space seems to be the number one pastime of Xenos. He listens and responds. As he speaks he takes down one of the viewscreens and begins messing with the on screen controls.

"Back to your questions now that we know that your illegal invasion was accidental. You requested to know about relative spheres of interest and knowledge of star systems." He shows the viewscreen giving a good view of the local stellar area. "If you would focus this star map on the area that includes your systems of interest we could provide you with a general location of Akreonic space."

After pondering a bot on what the aliens meant Ensdoch concluded that they nust be wanting to do the deal he proposed. He had now gotten really anxious about what his superiors would say about him giving the aliens information about where they lived but he decided to go through with it anyway.

He uploaded a map of Nakturan Space, while keeping it as low detail as possible so that he is not giving away exactly where his people live and wait for the Xengari to do the same.

After viewing the Nakturian image Captain Khryn brings up a similarly low detail map however the map includes the stars, hyperlane paths and a small highlighted area around one star showing the current location of both the Nakturians and the Xengari Patrol fleet. The map gives no indication on what each system contains though it gives an obviousness of where the Xengari are in the galactic scene but also the scope of their Empire. Khryn speaks.

"While you may wish to hide where your people are we Xengari have no such compunction. Now you know where not to invade our space again, we Xengari are strong an you would be wise to stay out of our way."

Ensdoch seemed somewhat affronted by this.

"Invade? That seems like a strong word for entering a star system that you claim ownership of. But now we shall leave, know that we shall mark this day down for ages to come."

He and his crew turned towards their ship.

The Xengari nor their robots attempt to stop the Nakturians, nor do they say anything more. Presumably after the Nakturians have turned and left Akreonic space the patrol fleet continues on it's way, reporting back to their command what has happened via their communications systems.
