Date: March, 2112

Location: ::Unavailable::

Documented Event: General Scan of Angelos System

 

Scan Completed. Data being downloaded, and stored, for future reference.

 

Reading Data…

 

  • Sun: Angelos-Sol
    • Type: White Sun
    • Orbiting Planets: 4

 

  • Planet: Angelos-1
    • Size: Medium
    • Type: Barren
    • Moons: 1
      • Moon: Argos
        • Type: Barren
  • Notes: Due to its close proximity to the sun, and it’s slow rotation, both planet and moon are incapable of sustaining life above ground. Potential solution if colonized would be an underground colony. Recommend testing before dedicating resources.

 

  • Planet: Angelos-2
    • Size: Small
    • Type: Volcanic
    • Moons: 0
  • Notes: Due to this planet's high-volcanic activity, and relative proximity to the sun, surface temperatures may reach extreme temperatures. Rather than colonize, this planet would most likely be best utilized by stripping it entirely for resources, and abandoning what remains.

 

  • Planet: Angelos-3
    • Size: Large
    • Type: Gas Giant
    • Moons: 3
      • Moon: Qana-1
        • Type: Arid
      • Moon: Qana-2
        • Type: Barren
      • Moon: Qana-3
        • Type: Desert
  • Notes: Due to technical errors during scanning, the actual composition of Angelos-3’s gases is currently unknown. Further examination is recommended. The three moons surrounding the planet, rotate at a near identical rate, and are located at near identical distances around the planet. This causes a strange effect on the gases on the planet below, making the gases appear to be in constant swirling motion. Recommend colonizing moons, as opposed to planet, due to unknown variable within the gases of Angelos-3.

 

  • Planet: Angelos-4
    • Size: Medium
    • Type: Jungle Pangaea
    • Moons: 2
      • Eden-1
        • Type: Barren
      • Eden-2
        • Type: Arctic
  • Notes: Angelos-4 is the new home world of Humanity. Settled by New Sephoria, it is capable of supporting life, and already has shown artifacts of alien origin. Both of it’s moons have the potential to support colonization attempts, however neither is nearly as hospitable as the actual planet. Due to the moon’s rotation, Eden-2 is nearly always in either Angelos-4, or Eden-1’s shadow, causing it to be covered in thick layers of ice.

August would sigh having stayed up till late last night, going over paperwork and discussing some important matters with some others that she wouldn't make the council meeting this time and so she simply sent someone to let her know what was discussed during the meeting. They would be given what she was voting for and planning on each of the council members to do but would be swamped with paperwork at the time being.


 

The council meeting would end fairly quickly; everyone leaving with their own assignments they each took upon themselves to do with August’s suggestions. First Fernando would continue the tests of shrinking the railgun into a weapon the soldiers could carry while resuming the testing with the Experimental engines from before. Cynthia meanwhile would have been given the monumental task of creating Aurora’s very first space station with George’s work force helping the process along.

United States Of Arcturus

 

Arcturus system

2112

640

______________________________________

 

Life continues on. Such was the motto many were taking as the colony came into its fourth year. Four years since they had left, four years on their own in the dark abyss of space. But like they say life continues on. More and more citizens went to work as another generation left school and joined the workforce. When previously the average age for child birth was 25-35 the standard had drastically changed. The average age for child birth was now 19-27. Couples no older than 18 were rapidly marrying their significant others and what would 10 years ago be a cause for population concern was something that was now needed. To succeed as a race they needed a strong youth generation, It was time to get the population ball rolling.

_________________________

 

Work on the jump drive was….unsuccessful, the drive just simply couldn't be replicated at this time. Notes were taken, it was studied and documented and then it was sealed in a vault on Iris until time could come in the future where they could uncover it's secrets.

3GfthQuybp3ziWMxmOjiCApfbkg0qno1xIYZSfkrk3vD7adP62vynUSlUAz7QWWp0uIE5QiBGxZ82t4rs-EgJWPhtvZQJJrItT53tq__JG9ZWWO3vojR8BBJyGOWRRVoZasHpdRm

 

However as the research was underway scientists discovered, quite by accident. An anomaly being caused by the device, it seemed to be distorting space and time around it. With this new possibility on the table research and funding was poured into it at the end of the year they finally had something to show. A working prototype warp drive. Although tests had been successful, engineers and scientists pressed for an interstellar flight.

Featuring a large externally mounted power plant to house the necessary power to maintain the warp bubble the x-502 a small scout ship carrying one pilot prepared to set out on its journey. Having warped from one end of Arcturus to another with ease it was time to test it out, a course was plotted on the ground as the pilot gripped the control stick tight. Sitting in orbit above Artemis the engineers on the moon waited hopefully. With the target set for the nearby Juno system 3 light years away the warp drive kicked in and the x-502 disappeared from sensors. With the coordinates for Arcturus still plugged into the ship's computer they could only wait until their ship came back. If, it came back.

Peoples Council of Utopie

 

Things were going as far as thew council could convey it. They had been implementing a series of small scale programs. These could not all grow at once of course. But the seeds have been planted so to speak. It can be given attention at later dates. Priorities have changed drastically. The breeding program is not improved. For now the volunteers will begin the groundwork of the plan. The concerns are addressed as far as possible. The children will be given to adoption. Any family who wants a child can take them into their family. The parents themselves would be allowed to claim any of their children. This of course would be after their tenure is done. The Council opens up a referendum, allowing the people to decide on the breeding program.

 

Improptu voting booths are set up in every living tower. Guarded by the new strong arm of the People's Council. Further progress had been put into the training of an elite shock troop force. Jump Packs had been improved, allowing heavier people to use them. They have been downsized, and made more mobile. Now with the tools complete, the troops could fine tune their training. Primarily with automatic shotguns and smgs, they utilize rapid strike tactics. It is perfect to navigate the mountainous world. Shock Troops are also idealized as a good space troop. But that's a dream for the future. They ensure no one riots (though it would be in vain, with the council controlling the towers).

 

The People's Council hope to show that their control is becoming more accommodating. They had needed to ensure stability, and still will in full measures. But it was time to start letting all the citizens of Utopie have their say in matters of upmost importance. This would decide their generations future. Should they blend breeding programs with natural mating? What about clones, or robots and a reduced but skilled population. Science had to rule their reasoning.

 

As for the hypothesis on the crystals, it is taken very seriously. Soon after the scientist had sent their transmission, military officers arrive. Shock troops close down the valley, and a permitter is established. The hope was that these crystals could have a serious potential. If they could in fact be used to focus that is. Very careful not to bother any of the other crystals, one is selected. In a series of controlled explosions, it's broken down. From there the scientist step in.

 

The hope is that if they can use the right tools, the crystals can be shaped. The best hope was to make a focus lens out of this strange crystal. If it also could be used as a capacitor. That way a sphere of th crystal could be used to store a charge. Through some route they would have to find a way to draw from that, and direct it down a insulated barrel into the focus lens. A potential energy rifle, or even defense battery, is dreamed of. Other routes could be taken, and only the scientist will be able to figure out how to fully utilize it. The rest of the crystals are left untouched. Everyone is warned not to walk amidst or disrupt them.

General Activity

 

Once more the Colony went into sudden Martial Law, with the arrival of even more alien vessels in the system it was now the time to shore up the defense of the Colony in case they had hostile intentions. First Contact Protocol was peaceful unless aggressed against. People would resume their work during the day but at night would be ushered into the shelters. It was seen as a possibility to encounter hostiles.

 

The Executive Branch of the Colony would seek once more to establish contact with the aliens that sought to arrive at the planet any day.

 

Research and Activity

 

Continued research into making a Military Exoskeleton Project (2AP)

 

The Colony would attempt all forms of lingual or sign based communication with the encroaching vessels, signalling peaceful intent (2AP)

Head Councillor Vira stands before several cameras and recorders as she takes a breath adjusting her uniform “Citizens of Terra, Brothers and Sisters of Humanity. We have made several leaping steps this past year..our first alien encounter with the Grgl Confederation, whom have aided us kindly by gifting us with means of long range communications across systems instantaneously.” she smiles breaking her usual stoic expression “We have learned of two other human colonies! We are not the only survivors, this means our chances and ability to preserve our species has increased dramatically."

 

She adjusts her stance grabbing hold of the podium before her looking to the different cameras “This is a large galaxy..and we must strive to earn our place amongst the other beings whom call it home, not all are likely to be as kind and helpful as the Grgl but we will nonetheless strive forward to claim victory in any shape or size..big or small.”

 

Her expression returns to that of a stoic one

“As a great man once said..without victory..There can be no survival!”

 

Hours later…

 

The two Caterpillar class Freighters filled with equipment break atmosphere and deploy to transport needed materials between Luna and Terra to construct a major mining operation which will provide the colony it’s needs for the time being.

Imperial Republic of Mankind

40k_imperial_aquila__transparent__by_fug

Location: Novam Domum, Emperor's office 

The Emperor of mankind also known as Alexander Varellion by his friends carefully observed the papers that were laying on his desk.

Work had progressed good with the preparation of a road or a railway between the industrial zone and the mines, the colony ship had been properly disassembled and the Industry has kept expanding rapidly.

Yet there were some other bad sides to this; he now had a hard choice between choosing a road or a train for transport, manpower was running out because of the increasing Industry and almost no progress has been made regarding the jump drive.

 

Alexander thought carefully as he looked out of his window over the mars like environment of Novam Domum.

Having a road would be advantageous in the short term and would not cost as much resources to maintain and produce but that means that there would also need to be a lot of trucks constructed and it could not transport materials in as large a quantities as the train.

Thinking about it Alexander decided on the train since it could still be expanded over long distances and would be able to transport larger quantities of materials then a road would, furthermore it would also be interesting to see how good the industry could work and how successfully they would construct a train with train tracks.

Now on to the other issue he had.

train.jpg

 

Industry had been growing rapidly yet through this rapid growth there was also the start of a manpower shortage that he definitely needed to fix soon or the problem would only grow.

For a few moments the emperor contemplated the options on how to solve this problem.

Then he realized that he simply needed to do what was happening in factories for centuries.

He needed to make them more automated needing to use less humans as workers and mostly as maintenance people.

This would be a good solution and the emperor immediately started typing a number of ways things could become more automated.

 

"Now that Industry and mining had almost been established," the emperor thought"Maybe I should stop actively interfering with that part of society and start focusing on other things right now."

The highest priority at the moment to improve would be making the space port and after that trying to improve the quality of life in the colony so people could have larger homes which would be able to accommodate more people and this would enable families to grow larger and human civilization to recover again.

The emperor also thought that soon in two years the next elections would begin and thought that if he promoted improving the quality of life and his already large popularity he could be able to easily win the coming election.

 

As he looked over his report he found a sentence about a small personality cult growing in the Industrial zone that praised him almost like a divine being yet it was only a group of a few young people and nothing to worry about, after all they lived in a (relatively) free colony.

 

The Emperor also thought about the mystery of the jump drive after a few moments.

No one knew where it came from and no one definitely knew how it worked.

It made him wonder, how could the jump drives have simply appeared out of nowhere and just poofed into existence.

The emperor then thought" I should not think about it, it is not an issue that I could explain soon."

 

He then got on with his work sending commands through his computer on top of his desk which would then be sent to the data pads of the relevant people regarding each project that would then go and do their tasks and give the orders to their subordinates.

 

The emperor would go one working for a long time until 10pm and would continue working until he heard the door open and a gentle warm voice speaking.

 

" Did you work too long, again ?"he would look up and see his secretary who had brought in a cup of chocolate milk that was really rare since there was only a small cacao supply on the colony ship and even fewer cows in the colony for any milk.

Hearing this Alexander would raise his chest and smile at his secretary" There does not exist something like too much work, but I think I'll take a long break of 6 hours for sleep."

lily his secretary kept staring at him until Alexander finally relented and grunted" Ok then 8 hours."he would then nod with appreciation to Lily and go to bed after a long day of work.

 

Actions

1 ap is put into building a railroad in-between the Industrial district and the mines

1 ap is put into automating the Industry so it requires less manpower to keep working

2 ap is put into making a shipyard which is located close to the Industrial district so basic components can be built in the ordinary factories.

The Saga Initiative

 

“Wait, it didn’t even scratch the drill? This thing just became ten times more valuable.. It’s been stockpile still correct?” The assistant nodded as the man turned his back looking out his office window, “Good, very good. This is going to do our economy wonders now, and it’ll save us from using other materials that are so brittle and bring down the cost of replacement.. Call a meeting with Ben, Lucas, and Dr. Needler.” The assistant nodded, and headed out of the room typing furiously on his pad.

 

The man salivating at the recent news of the new minerals drills and picks success was the Chief Economic advisor Logan Dial. He stood about 5’9 and had shaggy dirty blonde hair, he wore glasses with decent sized frames and first glance many would consider him a nerd just off that. But Logan was built, he made it a habit to constantly workout and he also had a knack for making musical beats in his spare time. He and Ben had been college roommates, he knew why Logan had been selected because he was an economics genius. So they were both young leaders in a brand-new world. Having Logan around had been really relaxing to Ben as now he felt like he was not alone.

 

A buzz would ring throughout the office’s of the four, they all pressed the phone button and the conference call had started. Logan was the first to speak, he cleared his throat “Do not be mad at me but I wanted to discuss the recent findings I was told about of the new mineral. Once we made drills out of it, the drills were not even scratched. Do you know how strong this mineral is? Do we know what this means for us? Economic dominance, the replacement of /STEEL/ that is YUGE!” as Logan finished he could hear the three laughing.

 

Ben would chime in, still laughing a little bit. “Yes Logan we know how strong it is, but that is new. We will look into replacing all of the steel drills with this new mineral, need some sort of name for it though. We are also looking into building a frigate class spaceship. We know how that could be a bit of a drain on resources, but with the discovery of this material and its effectiveness in the mines. Do you think that would allow us freedom to construct these ships?”  Ben would kick back in his seat, as he heard Lucas chime in.

 

“This invest would allow us to increase operations across this galaxy. Allowing us to discover new and valuable resources. Maybe even other colonies.. As we did hear another signal in the area but it disappeared within seconds. The risk/rewar…” Ben would cut in angrily.

 

“WHY.. Why would you leave this information from me Lucas? You know how dangerous that could be? We aren’t in friendly space anymore, we do not know what is out there or what is awaiting to take advantage of us. We need to be prepared for this if it shows up and it is hostile. Now these ships are vital. As well as anti-air defenses. Stuff capable of doing damage to ships like the ones we are building.” Ben would sit back in his chair taking a deep breath, “I am sorry Lucas for snapping, but I do not want another incident like this happening again. Understood?” As Ben sat back down he could hear Lucas speaking again.

 

“Yes sir, I am truly sorry.. I was not thinking. I agree, I have access to rail gun schematics from back on Earth sir. That would work wonders as it is a high velocity projectile weapon capable of reaching extreme distances at high accuracy. It would truly help our defenses. I can get started on constructing some right away if need be.” Lucas would be behind the phone biting his nails as it was a nervous habit of his.

 

“Good good.. Aubrey, do you have anything to chime in? How did the scans of that moon go?” Ben asked curiously.

 

“It was nothing special, it's a tundra essentially nothing spectacular in terms of resources just the basic few that came up on our scans. If we need to, we can transport a team up there to get a better survey but I do not think it is necessary. It could be used as a military base, which could be valuable but might give a wrong impression.” Aubrey would sit back allowing Ben to make the final decision.

 

“Right now, a military base here is all we need. But defenses is important and a military base on that moon will be a priority as it could also serve as a prime port for our ships and prime location for a construction zone for upcoming space construction.” He would clear his throat, “This is our plan of action now. We will look to expand past the stars soon enough. But I want our military and people to be well prepared. This is understood by all?” The group saying yes could be heard, “Good then let us all get to work, if you have anything of use. Inform me immediately. All of you are dismissed.” Ben would end the call and step from his chair peering out among the city from his house among the mountains. As he peered down upon the construction and bustling city of Orion he smiled as he was finally relaxed.

 

Actions:

Two AA Rail Gun emplacements begin construction this would take a little bit though, as the immediate construction was not as important as some other things. (1 AP)

 

The finishing touches are placed on the Frigate construction yard (2 AP).


Drones are launched throughout the world of Viyter, they would be surveying for oil in the ground, across the sea, or in the desert continents in the north and the south. (1AP)

The Holy Kingdom of Eadn
مملكة عدن

Eadni Year 05 - Eadn City
------------

Work on the projects from the previous year continue, both of which were expected to take a fairly decent amount of time. Given the resources on the planet, ideas are drafted in regards to mining other planets in the solar system - however they do not go into action as other plans must be carried out before such things can occur.

[2 AP] The completion of the giga-factory installations as well as the production of grunt workers for those camps.

[2AP] The continued work of retrofitting the ark into a mobile space defense platform.

In the Great Palace in Eadn City, the 4th prayer of the day ends and all members of the High Court are assembled in a meeting room overlooking the beautiful settlement of Eadn City. The Eadni people have done well for the last five years; establishing sprawling farms and greenhouses, building great towers, and producing great art and religious pieces.

King Khalifa Saud-Al Nahyan chose to make a speech to his people - one that would reinforce the principles of their new society. 

"Sons and daughters of Allah, I come before you today to reflect on the first five years in our new home. The growth of Eadn City is unprecedented and the prosperity in our great city is unlike anything else previously observed in human history. Everybody prospers, nobody despairs, and everybody is equal in their individual worth to society - equal in the eyes of Allah.

In the coming years, we will boost our production of all essential materials and soon our population will flourish thanks to advancements in the fields of genetic engineering and embryonic developments. In celebration of our first half decade, I would like to announce the establishment of a second city - Aljadid Dubai. It will be entirely populated by genetically created individuals."

Shrinking Font-sizes since 2055!

KZCfUUA.jpg

 

 

 

The office of Mr Penrith was closed that morning. The great industrialist had spent the whole night celebrating that he was not, in fact, the arbiter of humanity. The communicators given to him by the Tarrasseans/Grgl had not yet been used, but there were a few ideas the advertising guys had. Henceforth, he got immensely drunk. Now that he didn't have the survival of humanity to consider, he could get back to what he loved doing--business. Business and nothing else. His Maori super-accountant Phillip was more than pleased to see his employer back in good spirits, but a little less pleased he was imbibing them. Nevertheless, when Steven had recovered from his night of fun, he called a very important board-meeting.

"Gentlemen, this is not only a great thing for us as a species, it's even better for us from a business perspective! We have potential markets our products were actually made for." The board members nodded in agreement as they slurped down their synth-coffee with sagely nods. 
"We're going to need to expand our operations tenfold. First up--we're getting business out the wazoo from our, erm..."
"Tarrassean and Grgl, sir."
"Thanks, Phil. Yeah, Tarrassean and Gurgle patrons. But we need to get an early foot into the human market. The best way for that, is convenience." Steven stands up from his chair, and begins to pace around the room gesticulating around himself dramatically."In my drunken stupor the previous night, I had... a vision." The board members started looking at one-another pensively.

"I saw a galaxy dotted with Hephaestus super-markets. But not just that, space stations! The size of cities! All Hephaestus! Mega-marts of such immensity and magnitude that my mind could almost not comprehend. I saw spacecraft the size of skyscrapers, flying the vastness of space. They too, were super-markets, but they plied unknown worlds to sell our products to people who had not achieved spaceflight. And the profits. Good God, the profits..."
The eyes of the board members became wistful.
"...we had to create whole new units of measurement in order to count it. There was nothing we could not buy. It was.... beautiful."

Some of the board-members began to tear up at the thought. Others simply nodded stoically, with small smiles edging on the sides of their mouths.
"I want this vision to be a reality. I wish to institute a great expansion for Hephaestus. The 'Five Year Plan.' In this plan, we will concentrate our resources on expanding our mining operations, and industrial output, and finally, technology. We will create the first step in market dominance--the Hermes MegaMart!"

 

Actions

 

When Steven gave the order for massive mine-expansions, the mining subsidiaries, their employees, and their families were ecstatic. At last they had the opportunity to really begin tearing up the landscape. The lack of any atmosphere had been such a strange boon to them. They had never realised how pleasant completely unregulated mining operations could be. As a rule, the Head Office informed the miners that they absolutely could not work within eyesight of any Hephaestus settlement on the planet's face. It made for bad business, and could lead to a decline in retail value. 

Thus, the miners set off hundreds of kilometres from the main settlements, and began the most intensive operation in the history of the company. 

-3AP Intense mining expansions with zero fucks given to waste-management or aesthetics. Just the acquisition of resources.

The board was interested in the Tarrassean scientist, and decided to mark him down for recruitment the next financial year. For now however, they preferred their work-horses to continue with their research into laser-weaponry. This time, they requested some working prototypes derived from the blueprints created in the previous year. They hoped the engineering and science department would let them down. 

-1AP into building a number of different prototypes.

New Sephoria

 

With the jump drive safely stored away, the ship is being dismantled piece by piece to repurpose the modular parts in building facilities and homes around the old robot factory. It will take a bit, but should be little of a problem. The engineers begin to clean up the old robot factory halls as well, whilst not finding anything of particular value, it's rather vast halls can be used for storage regardless.

 

Copying the mechanical parts of the functional robot, soon enough a prototype with basic command recognition based upon Earth technology and mechanical prowess based upon foreign technology is built. Whilst they appear to require daily recharging when used in heavy operations, due to the limitations of the current energy storage technology, they appear to perform quite well. Whilst far inferior to their high-tech brethren, these robots are a foundation for artificial workers.

 

Aurora

 

With a new model of field modulator, the first small and powerful magnetic accelerator is developed. Given that, the remainder of the research should be quite easily done. The scientists and engineers claim they should be done with the first prototype in two years.

 

After preparing for such an extended time, the first field test of the warp engine is conducted. A manned vessel is being used to try to reach the closest neighbouring solar system. The people are excited, live television transmits the view from orbit, live feed from the pilot's cockpit can be seen. A step into an unsure future some would say. The pilot wishes his family and friends well, hails the Imperium for a last time and bravely activates the engine. The ship proceeds to accelerate rapidly, blurring ever so slightly, as it zips out of the system and leaves sensor range entirely. What follows is anxious waiting for an hour. Then it returns. Not alone though, a bigger freighter follows up as it warps back in the system. The ship is of Tassaran origin, the captain sending his congratulations on achieving the first functional warp engine in rudimentary and broken English. The pilot muses, he just jumped into the system and encountered the Tassaran ship, which apparently had detected him coming and proceeded to wait for him. The freighter apparently brings goods from the Tassaran Republic, looking to trade.

 

Given the resources the engineers continue to construct the structure of the future space station in orbit. It will be a step by step construction, and hauling up the materials up from the surface is an effort, but they will manage, so they claim.

 

United States Of Arcturus

 

The ship leaves... and returns. The pilot is enthusiastic, transmitting data he recorded. No mistakes in calculations, all systems were green the whole time, the ship held together... it was a success for science and mankind. Little did they know that somewhere else mankind achieved the same at the same time, independent from this colony.

 

One might find it strange, but it appears the call has worked. The obligation of the people, remembering that Earth is gone, to maintain and secure the survival of mankind brings... people together.

 

The engineers muse, whilst it's easily possible to do something for smaller vehicles and under the effects of gravity, it was never tried or done for zero G, for vessels that have the size of freighters or destroyers. That aside, on Earth, whilst most was automated, they still had living people there assuring everything was welded together properly. The engineers note, that would be a task too big for the colony as it is right now. They lack the know-how, resources and manpower.

 

Peoples Council of Utopie

 

The vast majority of the populace, 78% to be precise, vote for a free choice of having children.

 

Given the stable and heavy-duty jumppacks that were available now, training continues better than before. It will become an integral part of the ground forces' strategies.

 

An explosion disturbs the quiet valley, as the laboratory examining the crystals gets torn apart. Adjacent buildings, sections and corridors also sustain heavy damage from the shockwave. Fifteen people are killed, another forty sustain heavy wounds. These crystals are dangerous. Specifically dangerous when energy is funneled into them, so better not repeat that.

 

The "idyll" gets disturbed, as sensor detect a huge vessel entering the system. It's the size of a literal battleship, visibly armed top to bottom. The vessels proceeds to travel around the outer planet, sending out smaller recon crafts. A couple of these crafts are approaching the planet with the colony.

 

Silver Knight Company 

 

The project continues, and the first skeletal walker is finished. With raw structure, machinery, joints and cockpit exposed, it comes about functional. Requiring a lot of energy for its strength and mobility, it has the advantage of being able to carry quite huge batteries. The engineers estimate that by next year the should have finished a first model with armor plating and simple missile launchers on the shoulder sections.

 

The encounter happens and the unknown force establishes a military outpost on the other side of the planet, ships remaining in orbit. They have not made any attempt at direct communication and appear to ignore all hails and requests.

 

The Terran Federation

 

Not being alone out there certainly brings relief to the people. Whilst the mention of aliens is scary at first, as pictures of the Grgl are made public the reaction is rather positive, mixed, but in a positive way. Some think they look funny, others find them adorable. Along with their chirping and gurgling voices they certainly find followers amongst the populace. The Tassareans on the other hand make the people rather wondrous, how a race can look so much alike mankind. Aside from being remarkably tall, tanned and having bright yellow, orange or red eyes.

 

With eagerness the mining operation is tackled, and yes, it does bring relief for the strained material supply on Terra. This should suffice more than enough.

 

The embassies are constructed in accordance with the representatives of the two nations, and soon enough, there are two new buildings added to the colony. Along with the ambassadors come a whole village of Grgl and Tassareans it seems.

 

Imperial Republic of Mankind

 

Noisy and fast. The railway is finished, the first train already running, hauling materials and tools back and forth. This certainly will give production a boost and help the industrial output.

 

Automating the smelting processes and such alike would do the trick the engineers suggest. Currently a lot of workers are smelters, something that doesn't need so many people, if it is automated properly.

 

Within a year, the groundworks and foundation stand, the structure of the hall standing out on the barren world. Next year, so they estimate, will they be done with it.

 

The Saga Initiative

 

Construction proceeds as planned, but slowly, as intended. Next year they should be done.

 

The shipyard is done. Within a short amount of time, they managed to construct this bigger assembly hall onto the previously laid foundations. Everything is in place and ready to be used.

 

They do find crude oil substances in the desert regions of the planet. They are not overly abundant, but there is comparatively as much oil as there was in the United States back on Earth, according to the sensors and what has been recorded in history back then.

 

The Holy Kingdom of Eadn

 

The remaining facilities are finished, and the factory assumes production, bolstered by the working power of the more... simpleminded individuals.

 

Even though no danger has been recorded or seen as immediate, the workers are eagerly grinding ahead as if hell would attack them tomorrow. Soon, above, floats a station like platform, sporting turrets for missiles. Definitely powerful enough to shoot down any approaching meteors, it should protect the colony now.

 

Haephestus Holdings Incorporated

 

And the industry grows and prospers. When there is no nature, why bother about destroying it?

 

Whilst hoping that they would be let down, they were let down in that regard, as a functional prototype for a laser rifle makes its appearance on the table of the CEO. The female scientist who has brought the prototype turns out to be the wife of the Tassarean who applied for the position just previously. The rifle comes with a very charming application folder, containing a transcript of records and whatnot.

Date: June, 2113

Location: New Sephoria Science Labs

Documented Event: Introduction of Mk. 1 Robots

 

Maria stood at the front of the room. Besides her, strode the first robot built by New Sephoria. Stepping onto the center of the display stage, she gestured to the robot. "This is a day New Sephoria should remember for years to come. Today, we have taken an alien technology, and made it our own, even if only a little. With these new machines, our labor will be made easier. Our people may begin to pursue more intelligent avenues, leaving the labors to these machines."

 

The crowd of scientists cheer. From the front, Director Rosita claps politely, while General Luciano and Pope Rolando watch on in silence. After the cheering dies down, and the general demonstration of the robots capabilities is shown, the crowd disperses, and the leaders of the colony make their way to the Council meeting room.

 

General Luciano starts the meeting, before Director Rosita can make the usual welcoming speech. "The robots would make excellent soldiers."

 

Maria shakes her head determinedly. "There weren't built to be soldiers. They were meant to be labor."

 

General Luciano replies, quickly making this into a debate between the two of them. "So, should we ever come under attack, you would prefer we sent our own people to fight? Our own people should be sent to die, to fear for their life on a battlefield, rather than a machine? A machine with no fear, with no qualms about marching against an enemy? A machine, who could be produced, programmed, and deployed in half the time it would to even train a human?"

 

Maria stays silent for a moment. "These robots are not built for combat. They're built for labor. We can't deploy them for combat."

 

Rosita speaks up, forcing both of them to stop. "This is what we'll we do. A group of 20 robots will be specifically designed, and programmed, for combat purposes. If they prove to do well, then we will consider opening research and development into producing more combat capable models, as well as the standard labor models."

 

After several minutes of debating between the four of them, they finally settle of the issue, in favor of Director Rosita's idea."

 

ACTIONS

 

(1 AP) Continued establishment of the settlement around the facility.

 

(1 AP) The alien factory, now cleared, will have equipment installed in it, to produce more robot workers.

 

(2 AP) A robot model will be designed specifically with stronger frames, and combat programming, to fight against threats for New Sephoria.

The entire colony was in a celebratory mood, the very first warp was a massive success. However the council called an emergency meeting when an alien ship appears quickly after the test was a success, two alien races encountered completely proving already that they were not alone in this universe. The council would be hurried into the council room to discuss what should be done about this new comer. August would remain standing frowning as she looks over her clip board while the others do identical things with their own electronic devices as they scramble their departments to do certain things. Soon August would clear her throat signalling the beginning of the meeting; “Okay everyone...second alien race encountered...what should do you believe we should do? So far the last one gave us the communicators this one wants trade it seems” She says before looking to Cynthia, George and Fernando. Cynthia, The engineer council member would rise up quickly afterwards “Well, I dont see why we dont want to bring in more aliens...they can give us the help we need” She says tapping a few things on her touchpad board. George would grunt a bit before speaking up after Cynthia “I think we should keep an eye on them...we need to be careful with these things as we never now their true agenda..”. August would nod taking their thoughts into consideration before looking to Fernando who would think “I agree with both of them i’d say...Quoting Stephen Hawking “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans..We’re just lucky that hasn't happened to us” he would sit down letting that sit in to which August would eventually nod. “Very well, ill take these into consideration and we shall continue to progress as it is the only things we CAN do..” She says softly. Soon the members would all file out of the council room to do their respective duties.


 

With the meeting over with, the council members would head to their departments or rather districts that they were in charge of. Fernando would meet with his head scientists and they would continue the testing of a railgun weapon that could be held by ground forces. Meanwhile Cynthia would continue with the spaceport, not completely at top priority at the very moment as August works with her agents to discuss a few things. Soon the Tassaran’s and Grgl are permitted to trade in the colony, work being done to try and incorporate their currency however the trade would be strictly monitored.

______________________________________

As the ship returned from warpspace a new chapter was entered into human spaceflight, just over two hundred years ago man had first lifted off the earth into the sky and here they were now, the capability to travel between stars at the tips of their fingers, ahead of the the galaxy awaited daring to be explored. With the completion of the first stable and workable generation of warp drives it was now time to create a platform from which to explore the galaxy. The USA commissioned the Rhode Island class exploration vehicle to be built in orbit above Artemis,

91df9559ddd5df12e8570f7f68aa352f.jpg

Featuring the standard complement of sublight drives as well as the 1st generation warp drive the vessel maintains a crew of thirty, the vessel features two Stanford torus wheels, the fore wheel is comprised of two decks and contains the crew's living & sleeping quarters. With the size and rate of spin of the wheel the crew experience a comfortable .5 Gs through a central tunnel it is connected to the main truss, the main truss also spinning but being much smaller in size only maintains 0.2Gs. The second stanford torus at the aft is much the same as the first, instead of living quarters however it contains a fully equipped infirmary, science lab and the ship's farm providing fresh food for long voyages. The fore block of the ship contains the bridge, hanger bay and storage deck. Due to zero spin the crew uses mag boots when operating in that area, the ship's sensor and communication suite also resides here. Between the the two wheels sits the ship's two cargo bays, maintaining .4Gs the pods are used for extra storage of necessary equipment and supplies. The Aft block much like the fore has no gravity, the aft contains the ship's fusion reactors, engineering shop, fuel tanks and engines. The Ship contains several smaller craft, the main craft the ship operates for surface to ground exploration missions are the two Yukon light transport, capable of ferrying crew and supplies between the surface and ship. Also located in the hanger are two Camel LRV’s and a 12 ton truck. Still the issue of FTL communication remained, it would still take years for transmissions to reach home. As a workaround the government engineering and physics institute designed communication probes. Twelve communication probes are on board the ship, reusable and roughly the size of a bookcase the probes contain a warp drive as well as a full communication suite. When necessary the Rhode Island class vessel can deploy a probe program in a message and warp it back to Arcturus where it can relay information to the ground there and vice versa, through this courier type of communication the time it would take to send a message and receive a reply went from years to an hour or two.

 

As work began on the Rhode Island class exploration vessel several problems still remained throughout the nation as President Hallsworth entered his second term he was still much focused on the issues at home. Time and resources were beginning to be funneled into further upgrading the mines on Iris to keep up with the colonies demand for raw materials and minerals. Another key point was that of the population, the recent boom they had received in the last year was still not enough, last year there was a child born for every 28 citizens, it was the hope of the nation to lower that to at least a margin of 18, and so more resources were put into encouraging the general populace to ‘get it on’
