Topic: Federation Offer

Dear Sir/Madam,
The Igarian Republic has, again, offered us to join them in a federation. This is the third time in less than a decade. They are situated between the other federation we're already associated with and are among the weakest in the galaxy. And they don't share a direct border with us. As such, I cannot recommend accepting.



---------------------

Advisor note: We should remain friends with these creatures, but joining in a federation with them is out of the question!

Dear Sir/Madam,
The galaxy is full of life. Full of empires. Full of nice aliens empires. These are the gifts of the gods. Yet, at the other side of the galaxy, an empire of soulless robots have taken roots. Mere machines, an abomination. Hostile. And equally powerful to us, unfortunately. We have told them what we think of them.

Advisor note: Thankfully they are far away. They better stay there. I recommend we strengthen our defences, just in case.

Dear Madam,
I must confess we are puzzled. The alien entity we discovered are a most unique thing. It's not organic in nature, yet not entirely a machine either. We can't figure this out, the gods have not yet given us insight. It seems like we might have this filed as an ongoing mystery. All we know is it might not belong to our galaxy at all.




-------------------------

Advisor note: One might wonder what we are paying them for. Most unfortunate that this entity's secrets are not yet revealed.

A new religion worshiping these prankster "gods" in the sky has spread at an alarming rate. The scientists have been reprimanded and given toilet duty for the coming 50 months.

Madam,
Our fleets are in position, ready to strike. The enemy is weak, and their ally the Techarus - while on par with out strength wise - have no way to reach our or their ally's territory. They are not well liked in the neighbourhood and need to go through other empires in between. The war goal is on paper the bordering systems, but we will of course not stop before we have cleared the way for the exploration team to check out the site of this possibly terrifying weapon previously referenced! May the gods be with us, always!

Sir,
While you are dealing with the Post-Sithrandir leaders in the capital, it has come to our attention the Post-Sithrandir population back home on Shyrthas has gone forward with additional genetic modifications. They are now much more fertile than before. The local Sithrandir militia has gone to a preemptive strike and bombed the Post-Sitrandir communities, killing millions. There are very few Post-Sithrandir left, but they are still numberous.





--------------------

Advisor note: I think we should count us lucky the Post-Sithrandir with all their modifications lack one thing we regular Sithrandir has; the psychic abilities. They split off before the Great Awakening and seem to not have been affected by this event at all. This counts to their disadvantage in the continuing struggle.
