Greetings, fellow sapients of the galaxy. In light of recent galactic events, we have decided to reconsider our long-standing policy of isolation, and are now seeking diplomatic contact with your civilizations.

Below you will find a set of first contact questions that would greatly assist us in establishing diplomatic relations with your people.

I. Please arrange the following statements according to their compatibility with your civilization’s objectives, principles, and values, starting with the most compatible and ending with the least compatible.

1) The primary purpose of any civilization is to ensure the comfort and prosperity of its citizens.
2) Nature exists only to be conquered; one day we shall be as gods.
3) The universe is a dangerous place and we must be dangerous in return. None shall threaten us without suffering the consequences.
4) Our way is the correct way. Therefore, it is only fitting that we share it with the galaxy.
5) Power is its own reward.
6) Few things are nobler than the quest for knowledge. Fortunately for us, there are many mysteries in the universe yet unexplained.
7) Order and Stability are vital to the survival of any civilization, and must be pursued even at the expense of growth and innovation.
8 ) We are but insects in the grand scheme of things, and must be careful not be stepped on.

II. Hypothetical Scenario: It is the year 4400 according to Standard Human Calendar. Your civilization has achieved complete dominance in the Galaxy. Every one of your rivals is either destroyed or has been converted into an ally. Your citizens are free from want and need. Your civilization is free to undertake any project it chooses at its leisure, with the resources of the entire galaxy at its disposal. Please indicate the primary focus of your civilization’s energies and attention in this hypothetical situation.

Please send your responses, as well as any inquiries of your own to our communication relay station in Sector C-6.

Many thanks for your cooperation.


From: Oaxtoatotol Łichíí of the Nenpanoliz-altuxl Kikialtignahwi
To: The Lost

Firstly, the Nenpanoliz-altuxl Kikialtignahwi extends our warmest salutations to you. We'd be delighted to engage in a more formal diplomatic meeting at your soonest convienence in neutral territory.

As for Part I and Part II, we cannot answer that according to your wishes. Our government is fairly decentralized in power and is highly representative in nature; thus, answers for both parts would differ tremendously based on who was answering them and what sort of representation was most common at the time. I feel confident in saying, though, that our civilization favors true democracy, enlightened citizens, and technological progress as three overarching ideals.

In response, we would ask of you the same questions as you posed to us.

Thank you.

From: The Office of Foreign Relations, the Department of the State, Humanist Union
To: The Center of Foreign Affairs, Centrality

I would like to apologize personally for the tardiness in this reply. Recent reorganization within the Office of Foreign Relations has led to some degree of unfortunate disarray, and it appears your message was indeed lost in a clerical error produced by our reorganization. The Office of Foreign Relations and Humanist Union did not intend to communicate a lack of interest in diplomatic matters.

That established, the Humanist Union would be amenable to diplomatic discourse. As you say, it has been a significant amount of time since our two states have had meaningful diplomatic contact, and we understand your desire to remedy this ongoing situation; we find ourselves similarly inclined, particularly in the face of recent events in spinward space and occupied space at large.

We would be agreeable to a meeting of diplomats in a location within the Centrality, the Humanist Union, some neutral third location, or on representative vessels thereof. I away your reply.

Respectfully yours,
Hugh Bishop, Lieutenant Director
Office of Foreign Relations
Department of the State
Humanist Union


From: Ravin Nostrum, Foreign Secretary of the Centrality
To: Hugh Bishop, Lieutenant Director, Office of Foreign Relations

I am glad that it was a mere clerical error.

There are many issues our nations must discuss. Trade, security, etc, are our main worries.

We would be interested to meet your diplomats on neutral ground. I'd recommend Umeria, but other suggestions are fine.

I await your reply.

Sincerely,
Ravin Nostrum, Foreign Secretary

Umeria would be an acceptable meeting place for our purposes. We do not feel further suggestions are therefore necessary on this point.

We are prepared to discuss any issues that concern the Centrality related to the relationship between our two states. While we cannot guarantee that suitable agreements will be met on all issues raised, we believe we should be able to lay the groundwork on the issues that concern you, as they are indeed important to the Humanist Union, as well.

I must express mild confusion and concern in response to the conclusions you appear to have drawn from the supplementary materials provided by this office. It occurs to me that the common description of non-human sapients as "rival animals" may seem overtly aggressive, but I would like to assure your government that the new humanist ideology and Union government do not promote xenocidal policies or disclude the possibility of cooperation with states including non-human sapients. I would be willing to elaborate further on this concept at your wish, at such a time as is convenient.

Concerning your ambassador and the formalization of the agreements between our nations, the government will receive you at sector L1, at coordinates that will be attached to to this message. We will also accept your offer to send envoys to your facilities in Sector G3. I will attach to this message a document detailing the traffic laws governing foreign vessels in the Elysion system, but will briefly cover them here, as well: no dedicated foreign warships are permitted in the Elysion system except by special military exception. Foreign envoys are permitted to be armed and may come with a small personal honor guard, provided this is in-line with their desires. If you intend to establish a permanent diplomatic officer on Elysion, please notify us and we will prepare accordingly. Please contact my office with any questions concerning your ambassador's visit to our nation.

We would like to inquire as to any information you may have on the whereabouts of the Umerian nationals who recently travelled to your facility for technical discussions, as they appear to have disappeared. Several family members have already inquired, as has the Umerian Strategic Defense Institute, employer of two of the six individuals.

NOTE: This message is being hand carried by official diplomatic couriers through warp gates, and will be presented in person by the respective Shinra ambassadors to the appropriate foreign government officials. As such, it is not subject to electronic or other intercept.

[spoiler=Hand Carried Diplomatic Message]FROM: The President of the Shinra Republic
TO:{Insert Appropriate Official from Nation List Below}


The Shinra Republic Navy has recently intercepted a transport ship from the Multiversal Empire of Happiness containing sapient ESP-capable individuals held prisoner. From earlier diplomatic traffic between the Republic and the Empire, as well as interviews with the prisoners and transport crew, it is clear these sapients were destined to be the subject of unwilling experimentation.

As we would consider this to be an act of government sponsored slave trafficking, the Shinra Republic is invoking the Pendleton Precedent to answer this transgession against all living beings. While we forsee the need for military action in the future, the immediate concern is to have a face to face meetings with representitives of the Republic, your nation and other allied nations to plan a coordinated response.

We ask that communication regarding this matter be kept off official channels as much as practicable. Due to the unfortunate actions undertaken by the Shepistani Navy against the civil populace of Pendleton, it is the view of the Shinra Republic that wide-spread dissemination of this incident is not in the best interests of the Republic, our allies, the civilian population of the Multiversal Empire of Happiness and the galaxy as a whole.

In the spirit of cooperation and transparency, we attach a list of the initial governments the Shinra Republic has contacted on this matter:

United Star Kingdom of New Anglia
Technocracy of Umeria
Clans of Hiigara
Interstellar Union of Worlds
Holy Empire of Haruhi Suzumiya
Byzantine Imperium
Sultanate of Klavostan
Tianguo

If your government would wish to propose other members of the coalition, we feel this can be done in the first meeting of all coalition partners.

Travel information, meeting destination, and Warp Codes for your representitives are as follows:

{Insert Information Here}

We look forward to meeting your representitives and hope that together we can create a suitable response to the Multiversal Empire of Happiness' barbaric and cruel actions against galactic society.[/spoiler]

The C'tan Consumer Products Corporation is interested in purchasing large quantity or Orichalcum charms for use in security against psionic intrusion on its assets.

It is the intent of this inquiry to establish your capability and willingness to enter this agreement, and request your initial statement as to your preferred terms.

From: The Lost, Section for Trade and Diplomacy, BEEEF Delegation, Emissary Shroom


Dear Mr. Meyer,

Thank you for your interest in our products. We would be more than happy to fulfill your order of 55,000 orichalcum wards. While the exact total amount of the orichalcum needed will vary on the exact breakdown of the wards required, we estimate the amount to be around 6 tons. Including the price of crafting, transportation, and installation, our preliminary pricing places the cost at around [very large sum of money]. We accept payment in UN Dollars, Altacaran and New Anglian Pounds, Haruhiist Yen, and Solarian Credits, as well as raw materials, certain high-end goods, advanced technologies, or information.

If you find the price acceptable, the next step would be to meet with our trade representative here at the BEEEF. There are thousands of possible wards, and we will select the optimal shapes based on your requirements. Ideally, we would also have to assist you with the installation of permanent wards for secure locations and vehicles to ensure optimal placement and coverage, however if this is impossible due to security reasons, we will provide a detailed set of instructions instead.

We will, of course, provide you a sample for testing at no cost to you as a token of our appreciation and goodwill.

Representing the Lost,

Shroom.

Greetings. We have reason to suspect that the faction known as the Multiversal Empire of Happiness may be mounting a disinformation campaign against you in the near future. We must note that this is drawn from fragmentary intercepts and pieced together by lower probability predictor AIs so we cannot fully guarantee that this is a certainty. We simply wish to warn you so that you may prepare for this eventuality.

To: The Technocracy of Umeria

Based on recent intelligence received by our Department of Internal Intelligence and the Federal Civil Protection Service, my government has reason to believe that a wanted criminal has fled to the outer rim of your nation with the intention of avoiding arrest here in the Union. This individual, one Brandon Klein, is believed to be connected to the recent suicide bombing that took the life of Office of Foreign Relations Director Amos Bowman. While it is unclear in what capacity this individual is involved, his particular skills at evading arrest and detecting pursuit reinforce my government's suspicions. This individual is also an unregistered ESPer, and has displayed abilities in physical augmentation and pyrokinesis, as well as possibly possessing precognitive abilities.

I greatly regret that contact between our states is made on such unfortunate grounds. I expect the Technocracy understands the sensitivity of this issue to the Union's government, in light of Director Bowman's contributions to humanity and the fleeing fugitive's apparent connection to some greater criminal enterprise. We humbly request the cooperation and, if possible, the assistance of the Umerian government in apprehending this dangerous criminal and returning him to the Union so that his actions might be properly addressed. Attached to this message is a file detailing Klein's last known wherabouts, his background, his appearance, and reports on his apparent abilities.

Respectfully yours,
Hugh Bishop, Lieutenant Director
Office of Foreign Relations
Department of the State

TO: Ordos Diplomatica; Imperial Inquisition; Imperium of Man

Your Lords Inquisitors,

The consulate of the United Solarian Sovereignty on Conch Key, sector U-26, has received the following communique from authorities in Bragulan space:

Diplomatic Message wrote:Neighbors of Bragule Be Advised!

The most imperious military forces of the mighty Star Empire of Bragule will be deploying to the Chamarran Hierarchy to conduct large-scale exercises with their Chamarran comrades. Included in the Bragulan mobilization will be one and a half Space Guards Fleets and approximately half a billion soldiers from the Legions of Liberation - to be deployed incrementally from the end of the year 3400 to the beginning of year 3401.

The purpose of these exercises include the peaceful cooperation of the defense forces of Bragulan and Chamarran allies, and simulated joint Bragulan-Chamarran combined operations against a 'mysterious enemy from the anti-spinward'.

Any attempt at hampering the movement of peaceful Bragulan military forces to and from their point of origin and destination will be considered a hostile act and dealt with accordingly. Any vessel coming within the Bragulan Exclusion Zone will be treated as hostile and destroyed with extreme prejudice. Any protestations against these maneuvers will be assumed to be hostile responses.

The Imperial People's Military Maritime Space Fleet wishes to inform all peoples of this, so that they may behold the glouries and majesty of the Imperator’s mighty armadas and endless armies - and eventually bear witness to the ultimate culmination of this great operation.


Breakdown of this message has lead us to believe that either the communique is a ruse intended to lull Solarian authorities into a false sense of security whilst Bragule mobilizes against us, or that Bragulan and Chamarran forces may be intending to mount a joint campaign against the anti-spinward polity identifying itself as the Multiversal Empire of Happiness.

Solarian authorities are aware that the Ordos Diplomatica of the Imperial Inquisition maintains some form of dialogue with authorities in Bragulan space. We request your assessment of both possibilities and any further intelligence on this situation you may be able to provide.

Cordially,

From: High Lord Inquisitor Al Fahd, the Head of the Ordos Diplomatica

Dear Sir/Mdm,

The Byzantine Imperium and the Bragulan Star Empire have recently agreed on joint operations against the entity that calls itself the Multiverse Empire of Happiness on the pretext of common interests. The Imperium is mustering for such a joint operation with a significant fraction of its standing forces. The Bragulan Star Empire is cooperating with their allies, the Chamarran Hierachy and is mustering in Chamarran space. We are of the understanding that the Bragulan Star Empire will make a similar commitment, thus maintaining the current balance of power which will deter military adventurism in the near future. The Bragulan Star Empire will make no overt military operation in the near future against the USS as the conduct of the campaign against the MEH continues.

We apologise for the tardiness of this notification, but the operational security of the situation demands a certain silence on the matter. We appreciate your understanding.

Yours sincerely,
High Lord Inquisitor Al Fahd
