Posted: Sun Nov 14, 2004 11:10 pm Post subject: The Discovery of Minios
The worm hole leading from the Vendrin star was quite peculiar. Unlike typical wormholes, it did not lead to a nearby system. Instead, it connected clear accross the quadrant. When the crew of the Baninurmān 0003 filed its report with central command, this information would undoubtedly stir much controversial discussions amongst the scientific community about the nature of the galaxy.
This was just the tip of the iceberg, however. Even more intriguing was the destination of this worm hole. One world in particular caught the eye of the intrepid crew of the Baninurmān 0003.
The atmosphere of the (4th? 5th?) planet in orbit of the Minios star seemed to contain an unusual mixture of elements for a nitrogen-oxygen atmosphere, including an unnatural level of nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides, methane and sulphur oxides, too much so to be the result merely of volcanic activity. Such gases indicated the presence of highly developed industrial complexes. Upon further scans, it was determined that the planet was teeming with life. Not only flora and fauna, but vast cities and other artifacts of an advanced sentient culture.
Within a span of a month, two seperate alien species had been encountered. Theorists that had previously predicted that there was no life outside of Zyr in the galaxy were put to shame.
The Baninurmān 0003 approached the inhabited world and transmitted hailing frequencies on as wide a band as possible. The message said:
"Alien world, this is the Baninurmān 0003 of the Zhentara Martial Republic, on a peaceful mission of exploration. We seek contact with your people. Identify yourselves." Smarter than your average Texrak. Back to top

The mighty Minios sector was at peace, then out of an unkown warp point a small escort. This sent up alarms within the higharcy of the Clan due to the recent discovery of three other species of prey that had been discovered over the past few months. Then a message from the ship "Alien world, this is the Baninurmān 0003 of the Zhentara Martial Republic, on a peaceful mission of exploration. We seek contact with your people. Identify yourselves." Quickly the First Lord of the Clan sent a response. "We are the mighty Minion Clan, you are in violation of the first article of War set forth by the Clan of One "No One May Enter The Clan System short of an act of War" you have the minium of One month to withdraw, any advance toward our planet will result in your destruction." Back to top
The Baninurmān 0003 transmitted a response, "How can we possibly violate articles that only apply to yourselves?
"If your people do not desire peaceful interaction, then so be it. We shall be on our way in search of more civilized peoples." Smarter than your average Texrak. Back to top

The quick response by the First Lord, "Articles of War apply to all species. You are welcome to seek peaceful intensions with us but we are very terriotial should you advance your ship would be immediately destrioed.", "We offer a numerous amount of services if you so wish, please read the enclosed message."
These services can be provided by the Clan for a price.
1. Protection by our clan can be provided, for entire systems or single lone planets on the rim of the galaxy, if all conditions are met.
A. We do not protect you if you invade any of our systems.
B. We reserve the right to cancel any protection agreement at anytime.
C. No demands of our ships to protect individual planets (unless said planet is within the specified treaty) we prefer to protect whole systems rather then one planet. Also for each extra system we add more to the price.
2. If you would like a war between us and yourself to keep your citizenery in line we can provide such things. Only on two conditions,
A. No attacking ships not on the line of battle
B. No invadeing Minion Home systems
*If either of these are broken it will be considered an actual declaration of war and you will be annilated.
3. The Minions fighting your war, we may if you so wish be hired to fight battles, skirmishs, or total wars for you if you are in need. We may also be bought if you offer a higher price we may switch to your side.
All of these services may be provided for a price. Such payments can be technology, resourses, ships(any), bases(any).
This has been a message from the Minion Foreign

After a short pause to gather his thoughts, the Telkar of the Baninurmān 0003 transmited a response:
"The Zhentara Martial Republic is not bound by any articles that they neither had a role in creating nor willingly agreed to submit to. Your Articles of War do not apply to Zhentaran citizens. Should you take any hostile actions against our vessel, rest assured that your people will pay dearly with their lives. The Republic will not be threatened or bullied into any action.
"You may keep your system; we have no interest in it. Further, we are not interested in the services of barbarians. End communication."
Following the transmission, the communications link was immediately severed.
or entire planets if such services are extremely exspensive.
I should point out that this would violate the rules of the game...
Population trading is disallowed. You may not trade population with other empires, period.
"The Zhentara Martial Republic does not recognize the right to sovereignty of thugs and murderers. We recognize Minion territorial claims in the same manner as those of any pack of wild animals; not at all." Back to top
