Xengari Exploration from the Cirnii Sphere

Post by Joe Joerson on Sat Nov 26, 2016 1:48 pm

The Xengari previously held up by the Cirnii War and after a possible war with the Khendros distracted them, are now free to continue some of their more standard measures. One of these is an expedition to explore out beyond the space previously held by the Cirnii.

The Expedition consists of three new Corvettes and six patrol boats. The Corvettes new armaments consist of the Kinetics the Xengari are so fond of and some new plasma throwers designed both from the need to have an armor penetrating weapon during the Cirnii war, not that it was developed in time, and influence from Cirnii laser technology. Both types of weapons have the same range unlike lasers that the Cirnii used. The Expedition is led by Lower Admiral, Viscountess, Hretai and carries aboard Low Lord Anrend from the Bureau of Xeno-Civilizational Affairs as an advisatory role to Hretai.

The Expeditionary Flotilla has moved beyond the Cirnii sphere and now has some chance of encountering new, and in the Xengari view, and dangerous civilizations and species.

The Septhi control a moderately large Stellar empire when it comes to worlds and size of space, however very isolated from foreign visits, since the Septhi encountered the Khendros alot more work has been put into their border systems with new small Sensor outposts and military-stations to show off their domain.

In one such Border system primarily used for mining operations is one such Border-Protection facility, two frigates armed with missiles and Kinetic batteries serve as its local vessels mainly for patrolling and peacekeeping, the Sensors of the facility emits a constant stream of pings, pointed at any other station and the rest of Septhi space so others will know immiediatly if the station stops emitting its regular pings.

Unfortunately this is not stealthy and makes it rather obvious theres a station in the system, even if its just a small one used for border-protection. Onboard the Station is Commander Nakphe, leading officer of the facility and thereby the system and the two frigates stationed here, for now things have been rather silent and the miners of the nearby asteroid belt have been doing their tasks undisturbed.

The Flotilla was attracted to a system a ways away from the Cirnii sphere, a persistent pinging is emitted in certain directions from that system and so after much deliberation the decision is made to approach. The working hypothesis is that it was some sort of beacon attempting contact and no one who did not wish to be found would behave this way it was reasoned.

In any case the Flotilla started on its way to the system, causing of matter of course gravitational disturbances that one familiar with the drive would recognize as the entrance point of ships from hyperspace coming to the system that so blatantly broadcast its presence.

The gravitational disturbances are small however even if they are distinct, nine separate gravitational disturbances of small size to a cosmic scale in close proximity to each other.

As the gravitational anomalies are reported approaching the system, the crew for the Frigates are prepared. The commander boarding one of them, as well as a few security teams onboard with boarding equiptment, it is afterall an unregistered arrival, can never be too sure.

The frigates take a slow movement towards the arrival point of these signatures, altough still keeping a distance.

The Flotilla burst out into real space once more, and begin analyzing the current situation. The patrol boats, roughly a third the size of a corvette take up defensive positions around the corvettes, two guarding each however other than that movement the flotilla remains near where they emerged from.

The Three corvettes are all the signature image of the standard Xengari warship, smoothed with few or no hard lines, a very dark blue color and reminiscent of a marine hunter. The Six patrol boats look something of a folium expanded into the third dimension, smooth and vaguely oval-like.

Seeing the presence of alien ships in the system, presumably those who persistently blasted signals into the local stellar neighborhood. They send a prepared data packet, it contains an artificially created language with appropriate supporting information such as the necessary mathematical and common images to unify meaning with symbol. While this language is large and flexible it is clearly not designed to be learned by most organic intelligences, a computer would do well in using this language or using it to convert one language to another without need for either party to know the others language, just how to translate their own into the common one. Included in the data packet is the name of the language and unlike the rest of the language appears to be something from a natural language, in fact a combination of two abbreviations of words in Low Kolesh, and unlike the majority of the language which is mostly composed of specific tones and notes this name would be rendered as "Uovali".

(Sorry for the super long delay I had to go move some things. Smile )

The Septhi vessels intercept the data-packet without issue and transmitted back to the System base for verification and study, it doesnt take long before the local Scientific crew of the Station using computers to decipher it. Once deciphered a message is relayed using the language in direction of the foreign vessels

"You have entered Dynastic Space unannounced strangers, by law of the People of Septhi and by the Grace of the Sacred Crown. Identify yourselves strangers."

Reasoning that either this species is very stupid, in which case it will not matter, or strong enough to take whatever might be drawn to their beacons, the Xengari take a more conciliatory response. Especially because it is the Xengari who intrude, although they may not say so. A return message is sent with both using the language and an image. Which playing to the side of caution Hretai has decided to give a strightforward answer in an attempt to establish if not good passable relations.

The message is received and it is not long before a message is played back towards the Xengari vessels, using the mark of a Sun, perhaps sort of similar to Xengari design, since a Sun is easily recogniseable.

"Greetings Xengari, you have arrived within Space belonging to the Eternal Dynasty of Septhi. Your people does not appear in the lists of known species and nations of ours. We apologise for the direct confrontation of the local defence ships. The Septhi greet you, may the Gods bless you and yours."

The mark of a Sun sets many Xenologists aboard the vessels speaking to one another about the possible meanings and similar symbology. Other Xenologists wonder about this 'Eternal Dynasty', similarities to the Cirnii possibly. Hretai sends another response to the contents of their message.

"Indeed. I am High Lady, Viscountess Hretai, Lower Admiral of this Flotilla and Plenipotentiary of the Overlord of the United Lordships. To whom do I speak to?"

"Your speaking with Commander Nakphe, Lady Hretai. I am the assigned commanding officer of this border-station. I am not a person of importance, but our meeting has already been transmitted to the nearest system with a higher officer of note. This is afterall a big meeting of importance."

"Nevertheless Commander Nakphe, I am pleased to make you acquaintance. And while you may be correct that you are not a 'person of importance' to your own race, the Xengari will remember who was the first to communicate with us from your race. Am I correct in assuming that we will meet this officer in this system?"

"Unfortunately not, this is a small border system with minimal mining operations, but a higher-ranked official should be arriving as soon as word reaches the nearest one. Till then, i would be more than eager to accomodate you to the best of our abilities at the border-station and answer any questions you might have."

"And I would be glad to accept such an offer of accommodation. We shall no doubt speak again when we arrive."

The Xengari ships start into a cruising speed towards thee border-station for the presumed meeting between Lower Admiral and Commander.

A Message to reach a system with a higher ranking officer might take a few days, and the commander clearly does not seem intend on letting the Xengari wait for too long and thus requests a personal meeting indeed between them. Mainly asking how they would prefer this meeting to take place and where, on their ships? The Septhi ships? The Station?

Hretai would reply likely on the station, with just two herself and another as well as some guards.

The Septhi prepare for the meeting on the Station, Commander Nakphe has prepared a large meeting quearters in the main section of the station close to the docking area, so the guests wont have to move far, Security has been arranged, mostly in basic uniforms as well as a Spiritual Advisor from the Shrine on the Station to oversee the meeting, the docking crews have been informed and are prepared for the arrival of the Xengari.

The Docking area itself seems rather well maintained with workers using mechanical equiptment and operating remote-controlled robotic assistance from command stations. However no autonomous robotics can be observed.

The Xengari make likewise their preparations before docking a singular corvette as the other two and six patrol boats await near the station. The Xengari for the most part completely ignore any signs or signals that might direct them to the nature of the culture they are entering given any idea about the lack of autonomous robotics. Excepting a few such as High Lady, Dame Anveria, now a member of Viscountess Hretai's staff, and head Xenologist of the expedition. The Dame made a note to ask about it during the meeting if possible.

On disembarkation when possible the Xengari make of the entrance as they best would. First three guards Robots without obvious weaponry but upon closer inspection would reveal some rather unusual left arms, then Lower Admiral Hretai followed by three Bipedal servitors, three guards, Dame Anveria, three floating servitors. Overall the display could only be made more martial and prideful, if one was being kind, if they came with banners raised weapons armed and a national anthem playing. Hretai greets any meeting party and goes along to the meeting if simply led from the docking to such.

The Xengari themselves wear armored vacuum suits the only visible means of telling the difference is the small crest on Hretai's suit. The Xengari of course maintain their height and length towering above their own robots and those same dimensions make considerable impact upon space required.

The Xengari of course coordinate the debarkation beforehand so as to not upset any plans or cause undue danger or issues.

The Septhi take some getting used to the Xengari's comparedly large size and unusual shape for their interiors, regardless the access tunnels and doorways are large enough as they were designed to transport large ammounts of equiptment as well if needed.

Commander Nakphe awaits in the main meeting area he has arranged, Septhi soldiers in uniform in a guarding stance are at each entry-way in the chamber, it is large and oval with a large circular table in the center with holographic projections flying over it, Nakphe bows towards the Xengari as they enter. Observing them all, before speaking hopefully with the translators in the room doing the work properly for him as they were calibrated to the details of the Xengari data from before.

"Greetings Xengari guests, i have decided to greet you in full person as to make it clear we wish to make your stay as welcomming as it can, however the wait for a true representative of our government may take a few days. Thus i thought it best for personal introductions and sharing of knowledge as to prepare the constructive bond between nations and peoples. I am Commander Nakphe of the Dynastic Royal Forces." Three Icons shows up in the Hologram as he gestures to them. "The DRF, or Dynastic Royal Forces for short is the combined navy and army assets of the previous seperate Royal Navy and Royal Army put under a single command structure after the Grand-Armed Reform"


He then gestures to himself and the guards. "We are the Septhi, we rule this part of Space in the name of the Sacred-Queen and the Peoples Chosen Government."

Upon entering the room the two Xengari move center forward, two guards to the left of the leftmost and two to the right of the rightmost. Two guards also remain behind with the servitor robots. Any one with the hearing range or equipment to tell would noticed the utter barrage of ultrasonic pulses going through the room from both Xengari and robots.

At Nakphe's bow the two Xengari fold their leftmost heads in the Xengari sign of honoring a equal or inferior.

The Xengari view the holograms with curiosity and interest but also with great difficultly. Due to the placement of Xengari eyes of the sides of their outer heads this causes both to turn their outer heads to get a view that allows them to view the holograms with some accuracy.

The Xengari computers embedded in their armored vac suits translate the constructed language of Uovali to something the Xengari actually understand, as is expected. Hretai responds.

"I am High Lady Hretai, Viscountess of the Akreonic world of Tuplarvis, Lower Admiral of the nearby Akreonic flotilla, and Plenipotentiary of the Overlord Tenshaa. My branch of service lies with the Akreonic Star Navy, controlling the space based assets of the United Lordships."

Hretai gestures to the other Xengari with her.

"And I am High Lady, Dame Anveria, and Head Xenologist on the Lower Admiral's staff."

Hretai speaks again gesturing to herself and Dame Anveria.

"And as you know we are the Xengari, hailing from the United Lordships of Akreon, ruled by the Overlord Tenshaa, and we wish for nothing but pleasant relations between our two peoples."

Nakphe nods and bows again to each of them in turn as their names are introduced, before speaking.

"It is truly an honor to meet you High Ladies. I am sure my Government would be delighted to hear of your desire for pleasant relations, the Queen and the current elected Government believes firmly in cooperation with other species as it will help us reach greater Spiritual heights in this Cosmos, as we get to understand all other species blessed to exsists in this exsistance."


A Septhi steps forward, in deeply ceremonial robes with a mask on, heavily ornamental with two small discs..Orbiting it, however these discs do not appear to be orbiting out of anything technological, rather an unseen force eminating from the Septhi itself. The Septhi bows as Nakphe stands back.

"I am Ushep, Spiritual Advisor of this Station and Priestess of 'Krashut-Sothoth' the God of the Gravity and Attraction of force. I speak on behalf of the Septhian Temples of worship and our belief in the Pantheon of Entities that shaped this universe. I am curios of your beliefs, not all species have a touch to the gods beyond this Cosmos"

The two Xengaris' heads dip as acknowledging Nakphe's statement before turning their heads to focus on the new Septhi, briefly folding their left most heads across their chests to equal the bow. The Xengari are nonplussed by the orbiting discs, assuming some technological device, likely in the ornate mask as to conceal its existence.

They listen to Ushep's speech then Anveria responds.

"Indeed, we have gotten similar questions from another species we have encountered. I am telling the truth when I say that most Xengari do not care much about the matter. Whether they have faith in a religion or not the matter is not considered very important, though most Xengari are not convinced either way that are any form of deities or supernatural powers or not. A few hold beliefs in older faiths and some in newer faiths but all such groups remain a supreme minority."

Ushep nods slowly as she listens before talking again

"Interesting, regardless we hope you will find your place in the grand scheme of the Cosmos. As we all should."

After that Ushep steps back as Nakphe steps up again



"Before any formal meeting, perhaps you would like to indulge us in how your society works and is set up briefly? In return youl be free to ask anything you wish to know of our own society."

The Xengari listen to Ushep's response before their heads to focus on Nakphe.

Hretai speaks to Nakphe with some slight hesitation before responding.

"If you do not overly care on this matter we would prefer such an indulgence to be first on your part and then reciprocated on the part of the Xengari so as to minimize misunderstandings."

It is clear that Hretai is reluctant to initially reveal information whether this is an attempt to hide something, not being clear on what exactly is meant by 'society' or something else entirely. Whether or not one wishes to press the matter might depend upon their interpretation.
