SDNW4 Diplomatic Communications Thread

Postby Steve » 2010-07-04 10:09pm

This thread is for official diplomatic exchanges, so they don't take up posts in the main thread (since, as we move through the next couple of weeks, I imagine a number of people will be starting new storylines). You can write posts in "communique" short-hand style or in "story" style, it doesn't matter.

Note that unless you can justify it through espionage purposes (decryption of the signal, etc.) any dispatch not sent to you is something you are not privy to IC, though it's within the realm of reason, depending upon your location compared to the sender and receiver, that you detected the hypercom transmission and can tell it's an official government signal.

To use an example, here is my first use of the thread.


Official Communiquè from HM Government to the Diamid of Hiigara

Given the evidence found upon the Pendletonian courier Tantalizer and through other avenues, HM Government is preparing to take action in response. We welcome Hiigaran participation of any kind and ask for access of some sort to your databases should Hiigaran citizens be recovered in the coming operations.

From: Commodore Arcturus Cramer(Ret.), Ambassador
RE: Pendletonian Situation

Sir, with regards to the Pendletonian's and their grievous lack of respect for the rights of sentients, the Diamid of Hiigara is quite willing to take part in a joint military operation to put an end to the crimes that this nation perpetuates every generation. The Diamid looks forward to working more closely with our esteemed neighbor and to the strengthening of ties that a common effort towards a noble goal brings.

Sincerely,
Arcturus Cramer, Ambassador

Due to the discovery of a pair of previously undiscovered civilizations in a state of what would appear to be total war the Federal Republic of Industrial Sectors will station a fleet in system until this conflict can be resolved. This fleet shall consist of a fleet of two dreadnoughts, a super carrier along with an escort of sixteen destroyers. Other assets will be deployed as needed. We do not intend to cause alarm by stationing forces outside of our generally recognized boarders.

Official Proclamation of the Pfhor Ministry of the Ambassadory

The Pfhor Empire wishes to express its desire maintain its neutrality in the Anglian-Pendleton conflict, and its grief at the worsening of the situation in recent days.

The Empire furthermore, knowing that the galactic community has reason to believe there exist ideological similarities between the Pfhor Empire and Pendleton, wishes to make clear that this is not the case. As a gesture of goodwill to the galaxy-at-large, the Ambassadory has requested that the Ministry of Commerce halt imports from the Pendletonian nation for a period of no less than 30 days.

By the Emperor's Will,

Diplomatic Communiqué to the Byzantine Imperium wrote:To: Minister of Foreign Affairs
From: Her Majesty's Foreign Office
Subject: Official response to the loss of Convoy 442

Dear Sir,

As you are no doubt aware, the Altacar Empire recently lost a convoy of freighters en route to your nation several parsecs from your borders. Owing to the domestic situation, the Prime Minister is preparing to detach a Rapid Response Squadron of the Royal Interstellar Navy to patrol the route, and in addition is considering taking a robust stance on the matter in public: specifically, criticism of the Imperial Navy's ability to police the area. However, he is concerned that, should this policy be adopted for the period up to and including the General Election, that it not affect the otherwise good relations between the Byzantine Imperium and the Altacar Empire, and would therefore be most obliged if your government could make its views known on this policy beforehand.

Yours faithfully,

Francis Urquhart
Foreign Secretary

Dear Sir,

Her Majesty's government understands that your government has decided to take action against the government of Pendleton, and wish to assure you that the Altacar Empire fully supports this action. In addition, we wish to offer you the services of the Dauntless class battlecruiser Impressive, which is currently patrolling the region on anti-piracy duties, under Captain Julia Andrews, should you require military aid in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

Diplomatic Communiqué to Pendleton wrote:To: Secretary for Foreign Affairs
From: Her Majesty's Foreign Office
Subject: Altacaran response to recent Pendletonian actions

Dear Sir,

Her Majesty's government wishes to formally warn your government that recent actions have forced a change in Altacaran policy regarding your nation. As of now, the Altacar Empire is suspending all trade with Pendleton, and the Royal Interstellar Navy has been instructed to thoroughly investigate all Pendletonian ships suspected of engaging in, or aiding, the slave trade. Her Majesty further wishes to emphasise that failure to make reparations to those nations and individuals affected or to ensure that this kind of deplorable incident does not happen again may result in additional measures being taken.

It is with sincere interest in opening diplomatic contact that we alert the Peoples of the Commune to our intent to send a delegation to your area of space, provided this is acceptable to you.

From: Empire Star Republic Department of State

The government of the Empire Star Republic is alarmed at the recent discovery of a state of war so close to the Republic's borders. The Republic is grateful to the Federal Republic for its quick response to this worrying situation, and pledges its assistance to this noble peacemaking effort. To that effect a Republic Navy patrol consisting of two battlecruisers and four cruisers has been ordered to the Sepan Sector. The task force commander is under orders to cooperate with the forces Federal Republic Navy already present in Sepan, to ensure a swift end to this newfound conflict.

Despite our somewhat rocky history, it is the opinion of the government of Tianguo that the Pendleton practice of slavery cannot be tolerated, and if New Anglia wishes support from Tian Guo in the encouragement of Pendleton, all she must do is ask.

The Federation of Argent, Dosolia and New Malaysia wishes to declare its neutrality on the Anglian-Pendleton conflict. The federation calls upon both sides to put aside their differences and make peace as soon as possible.

However, the federation also wishes to state its opposition against the practice of slavery and as such, has sent a formal note of protest to the Foreign Secretary of Pendleton for its continued support of this despicable act.

FROM: Maxim Chernov, Second for Foreign Affairs
TO: Lord Prestwick, Foreign Secretary of New Anglia

The Technocracy of Umeria expresses its best wishes for the success of the Coalition against Pendleton.

Due to logistics constraints, it is infeasible for the Space Security Force to detach heavy fleet elements against such a remote target. However, the Council of Technarchs has resolved to offer the support of a flotilla of cutter tenders and a pair of frigates, carrying a combined small craft strength of eighty cutters, along with sufficient fleet train to maintain them on station for a period of up to six months.

The Ministry of Security proposes to load these tenders with ELINT and hyperspace pursuit cutters, manned by crews experienced in shoal space conditions, to serve as a distant sentry perimeter for the Coalition fleet and aid in the pursuit of fleeing Pendletonian units. Alternatively, the Ministry offers to load one or more of the tenders with assault cutters carrying a reinforced strike battalion and equipped for close air support of Coalition ground forces.

The institution of slavery is an affront to sentient beings everywhere. That it still persists in the present day, so close to the borders of the Empire Star Republic is a mark of shame which this republic intends to expunge in the most forceful manner possible. I would like to extend the assistance of a Republic Navy expeditionary group, as well as the logistical support that can be provided from the republic's Outback base at Burlywood, to His Majesty's governmet's upcoming military operation against Pendleton. The Empire Star Republic looks forward to working towards the advancement of sentient liberty alongside our honorable neighbors.

To: Lord Prestwick, Foreign Secretary of New Anglia

The Nenpanoliz-altuxl Kikialtignahwi is willing to give military support to New Anglia in order to subdue the Pendleton threat. To that end, the Kwi-Acalli has made available the Kokopalalatik-class ship Kontlati-Ekat, as well as three Mohlabani-class ships, and five Sasidwi-class ships. The Kontlati-Ekat is a specialized ship, designed to break through planetary defenses, but is not designed to fight other ships, lacking maneuverability and quick-tracking; the Mohlabani and Sasidwi class ships, however, are designed for more general purpose naval warfare.

Official Communication of HM Government to All Parties

The Kingdom of New Anglia appreciates the support of its neighbors in this issue and the offers of military and logistic support. As for the former, the logistics issues involved in supporting a force off the main hyperlanes of the Outback require us to accept only vessels of Light Cruiser tonnage (<$100) from other states save those we have made arrangements with already.

His Majesty's Government thanks all states for their considerations.

Signed,
Lord Prestwick, Foreign Secretary


OOC Note: The Hiigaran Fleet Carriers are basically the largest units coming, save for the six or so Imperator-class Star Cruisers being sent by the Royal Navy as the centerpiece of the force (as they carry the elite Royal Marines that will sweep away the poorly-armed, poorly-trained Pendletonian ground troops from landing zones, as well as ensuring sufficient capital ship firepower is present to bash any suspected surprises - those being surplus battleships secretly bought by the Pendletonians of course, not intervention by Collectors, which nobody has a whiff of yet). Most of the force desired would be lighter ships, as stated below $100 in value, that can be used to deal with the Light and Ultralight-dominated Pendletonian Navy (alongside the Hiigaran carriers' wings) and finally to sustain a blockade of the system to prevent ships from fleeing the suppression.

To Whom It May Concern,

The United Solarian Sovereignty will remain neutral in the conflict that pits the Star Kingdom of New Anglia and its allies against the Free Republic of Pendleton.

The institution of sentient slavery is deplorable in every conceivable way; unfortunately the Sovereignty is not in a place to intervene in this particular matter. It will however step up its patrols in Wild Space, and all powers may rest assured that rogue agents found to be dealing orga slaves will be dealt with swiftly and harshly.

In light of this, we hereby withdraw the the Kokopalalatik-class ship Kontlati-Ekat, as it is well over that tonnage, at {$200} tonnage. The Mohlabani-class ships, however, are at {$125} tons; is this acceptable or is it still too large?
