"I'm not sure. We intercepted Veridian messages, but they weren't addressed to us, so we did not intrude.

"The real question, I think, is why would the Gar''zhog come back? They must have some motive other then notifying us of an obvious threat, I think."

"Well," Brother Lal begins, "perhaps they wanted us to 'turn in' whoever was responsible, whoever that might be? They seemed focused on eliminating this group, whichever it may be."

"The Gar''zhog? That strikes me as unlikely. Someone struck a blow at their great enemy, and they return with a warning that great danger awaits. It seems likely that they wish to know who did it, but eliminating them?"

"To me, it seemed that they thought that this group that had perpetrated the microbial attack, whichever group it might be, is the 'great danger' they mentioned. But perhaps our Psych-readings of these beings was off, and your people have produced a superior translation? Or, perhaps, the translations that we both received were unclear, and these are merely differences in interpretation?"

"Their original message attempted to be in Common, or English. We'll extract the initial message in their language from their machines in stasis now.

She presses some buttons on her commlink.

"Anyway, I'll tell you the results in a few minutes. When they come back. Let's assume you're right, then. In that case our course of action is to dismantle their ship here and to reverse engineer it and to snare any more Gar''zhog vessels, yes?

"If I'm right, we dismantle their ship but then give it back, and we question this Gar''zhog on his meaning, and decide what to do from there. Agree?"

Brother Lal nods, and says, "Agreed. We need more information, and further understanding of their technology can only help us in our struggle."

Jenova's commlink buzzes. She smirks at it. "The techs say there's an 85% chance they were trying to translate a warning; that we are in danger, a 5% chance it was a threat; that whoever used the microbes is the danger, and a 10% chance that the Gar''zhog aren't quite sentient enough for coherent speech."

She shakes her head.

"Anywho, can we assume that it's the Veridians? Not only is it their MO, they sent out a distress signal. If you find out what they know, and I find out what this Gar''zhog knows, we might just be able to play this right.

"My immediate idea is this -- we haven't responded to the Veridian distress signal. We get whoever is threatening them to commit, then , surprise, Burnination shows up and we blow them all to smithereens."

*Paladin Komtur Jager definitely felt awkward in Dominion space. Though talks between the Dominion and Ordenreich were underway there was a definite sense of cold war between his ships and the Dominion fleets. The tension was so great it felt like he was being smothered by it. Although officially this was good will on the Ordenreich's part unofficially he knew that his fleet was the eyes and ears of the whole galaxy minus the Veridians. Whether it be fighting the Hildenburen, Gar'zhog, or confirming the Veridians were bullshitting the rest of the galaxy his fleet was on the losing end. Yep, stationed in space with the great potential of being wiped out by a technologically superior force with your only back up a race of people who clearly hated your guts was not where he wanted to be on his first day back. His only hope was that when the shooting started his fleet wouldn't be stranded holding the bag.*

"Well," Brother Lal says, "I suppose that could be done. We'll dispatch a small group of vessels for the time being, although the Veridians have as of yet failed to provide very useful answers. Should an enemy group appear, we shall immediately question them as to the purpose of their attack, and should it be what we think it is, we shall commence with your plan."

Soon afterwards, a message is sent to the Veridians notifying them that a PDF fleet under the command of Admiral Svensgaard will be sent to their defense.

Standing on the bridge of the flagship of the Veridian Fleet, Slavian Sabinus looked out into the emptiness of space. Though at first glance one would instantly noticed the assortment of ships, both domestic and foreign, that were amassed around Veridian Prime. Flavian however, was looking past all that and focusing instead deeper into the dark unknown. Lost in his own thoughts, the Supreme Commander of Dominion forces was eventually brought back to the real world by the interruption of an aide.

"The fleet reports you requested sir" said the aide.

"What....oh yes, thank you" Flavian said. "You know, it really is a shame."

The aide was about to walk out but then felt caught by the statement. "Sir?"

"We are Veridians, by our nature we've proven ourselves always ready to act" he explained, turning to face the young man. "Yet, instead of telling the rest of the galaxy of our great strike against our enemy, we cower in fear over how the rest of the galaxy will react."

"We have always been a people to think ahead sir" said the aide.

"Yes, but why shouldn't we take pride in our actions?" Flavian retorted. "After all, aside from the valiant efforts of the galactic community, most notably the Ordenreich who had to take the brunt of the first wave, what has the rest of the galaxy done to protect us? No, we Veridians took the initial and undoubtedly scored a great blow against our enemies. We may still, though we do face impossible odds but so have many great Veridian soldiers before me."

"With your leadership I am sure we will succeed sir" said the aide.

Flavian looked over the fleet reports. "Send word to the Ordenreich fleet that I want them to coordinate their efforts with our second fleet. Captain Pardek could use the reinforcements along that line. Have the Centauri report to Captain Letant and the third."

"As your wish Supreme Commander sir" said the aide, who then left the room. The Supreme Commander's requests were soon transmitted to the Ordenreich ships and would be to the Centauri upon their fleet's arrival.

*There was a subdued atmosphere in the bridge of the Times of War. All of the fleet's crewmen were veterans of the first wave that struck the Ordenreich. They knew what both extragalactic races were capable of and if the Veridians were right where they were right now was potentially ground zero of the second wave. The muffled silence of the bridge was broken with a beeping indicating an incoming message. The comm officer on duty read it and relayed it to Paladin Komtur Jager.*

Comm Officer: Paladin Komtur sir. Orders from Dominion Command. They want us to coordinate our fleet strength with that of the Dominion second fleet.

Jager: I see. Send word we are complying and move the fleet into position with their second fleet. Also send word confirming our orders to the commander of the Dominion second fleet see if he will link us in to the Dominion's battlenet.

Comm Officer: Aye sir. Complying with orders, sending handshake signal to Dominion second fleet flagship

When the request comes in, Admiral Svensgaard is somewhat annoyed in that the Veridians are dictating his own fleet's actions but complies, though fully intending to focus more on pressing information out of the situation than actually fighting.

After the meeting...

Jenova de-stasises the Gar''zhog, who is taken with Thorgood to be talked to. A representative from Rhea was invited, as was a representative from the University of Planet, so those two nations would have had cause to know of this talk.

"You have claimed that there is a great danger. Elaborate on that."

"Hildenburen know this galaxy origin of small creatures. Small creatures breach rules of war. Small creatures kill many. Very many."

"That doesn't sound all bad," the Burninite questioner responds.

"Bad because Hildenburen reason to come back here and find responsible."

"And why do the Gar''zhog have interest here? Don't tell me it's goodwill. It's insulting to my intelligence and I'm liable to get angry."

"Small creatures shift tide of war. Gar''zhog within sight of victory. War has been for time longer than 6 generations and now can end. Gar''zhog want to intercept Hildenburen fleet that appears here."

The Gar''zhog is put into a local stasis field while the Burninite tech crews finish reassembling his ship. Technical layouts are sent to the University of Planet without prompting. The Gar''zhog is then allowed to return to its ship, which is again put in a stasis field. Poor Gar''zhog; it's experienced something like ten minutes out of the last few days.

In any case, the Gar''zhog leaves a communication device, and is allowed to return to his people.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A single Hildenburen ship appears facing the fleets around Veridia Prime. It transmits.

"This planet was the source of an engineered plague that has killed billions of Hildenburen. The sentient beings that inhabit it are deemed irresponsible by intergalactic law and we the have grievance to remove them. Why do the fleets of this galaxy swarm to the defense of a genocidal people willing to use biological weapons that -- if this galaxy is remotely sane -- are banned without question in advanced circles?"

*The moment the Hildenburen ship appeared the Ordenreich fleet went to combat alert alpha and prepped its weapons, fighters, and counter boarder Knights. Since they were on loan to the Dominion they awaited the Dominion's word on what to do*

Immediately after receiving the new information, the University of Planet acts to study the Gar"zhog designs and perhaps will use them to the future benefit of PDF warship designs, though for the meantime it mainly chooses to study their structural technologies.

***

Meanwhile, in the Nag System, Admiral Svensgaard sends a heavily message to the Sacaens: "I would advise that you stand down. We have reason to believe that the Hildenburen are correct and the best course of action is to wait for joint action between ourselves and the Burnites."

Simultaneous, he sends a message to the Burnites stating that their suspicions were confirmed.

Jenova sends an urgent, encrypted communique to Dmitri, asking if he plans on committing, or would commit if asked to join a surprise strike. She tells no one else of this, and awaits a response.

In a single moment thousands of responses go through the minds of millions both on the planet and among those on the various ships of the fleet. The scientists are almost giddy with glee when those privileged few are allowed to hear the Hildenburen transmission. Billions had died due to their work, work that the projections and models suggested only millions would die from. That it had spread so far, so fast, suggested that not only were the Hildenburen not as technologically advanced as the Veridians believed, but that this so call galactic law had no doubt hinder them rather than advanced them. Fear, anxiety, and tension were also emotional responses felt at that time. Well shit was perhaps the smallest of the responses as it only crossed the mind of a select few and this included Flavian. The cat was apparently out the bag and as a leader of the Dominion, he spoke for the rest.

"I am Flavian Sabinus, Triumvir of the Dominon of Veridia Prime and Supreme Commander of Dominion forces. If we indeed perpetrated an attack against your people, we cannot and shall not be held accountable for the outcome no more than your people hold themselves responsible for the number of Saceans who have died or the numerous Gar''zhog you have no doubt also killed. Furthermore, we refuse to be held accountable by this so called massed "intergalactic" law. Who was privy to such a meeting, who signed to these laws? Both the Hildenburen and Gar''zhog have only now come to our galaxy, how can we be held accountable to laws we did not sign and whose signatories, have only recently come to our realm? War is a messy and dangerous game to play, simply put. If the Hildenburen do not understand this then they should retreat back to their homeworld from whence they came."

Cutting his com-link, Flavian then turned to his communication officer. "Send an encrypted message to all friendly ships: Do NOT fire unless than ship fires first. It is a single ship and I don't want to start a campaign here until the enemy shows its full hand."

Quite curtly, Admiral Svensgaard replies, "You have no need to worry. We had not intended to fire on this vessel in the first place."

"We do not believe that your galaxy is free of prohibitions against the unnecessary killing of civilians -- we know of some 'Korel' treaties of sorts, and we know of some other international agreements that are in effect in your galaxy. In our experience no species coexists on a galactic level with other species without a moratorium on biowarfare.

"For the other nations involved, know that we seek only justice. We will submit to codes in place in your galaxy to punish the offenders -- we believe that our grievance is on the order of an extinction level event."

Jenova sends an encrypted communique to the Governate -- "If it is true that the Veridians are guilty of attempted genocide, do we still defend them? I ask knowing that this is an attempt to split our loyalties, and we will not change plans without consultation."

Brother Lal responds shortly afterwards, "Seeing as in past communications they seemed to be obscuring the truth, and the potential danger of massive retaliation from the Hildenburen, given the Gar"zhog warning, it would appear to be unwise to support the Veridians in such a situation. Additionally, from an ethical point of view, whatever the Veridians had potentially introduced does constitute a war crime in the indiscriminate usage of bioweapons by our laws. Still, I will follow whatever you feel is best, seeing as that your scientists have the best understandings of the Psych profiles of these aliens."
