(OOC: This is for first contact with all other active states.  I've only begun diplomatic missions for the interstellar capable states that seem to be active.  If I missed you, just post a reply of you receiving my diplomatic mission and I will edit this post.  The Khroniktan mission has gone essentially to where the Khroniktan seem to be coming from.)



“This is the HDS Vienna, carrying an ambassador from the Chief of the State of Heraklea to Hochmeister Micah of the OrdenReich.”

OOC: The Triumvirate has been changed into a single office, I just have revamped the Social Factbook, sorry bout that.

IC:

No sooner had the HDS Hague entered Veridian space and sent their communication, two Veridians warships appeared. They stationed themselves just ahead of the Hague and sat, staring down the alien ship for several minutes before at last a communication was sent out from the lead ship.

"This is Captain Tovan of the Dominion Warship Viper, you have entered Veridian held space. What is the nature of your incursion here?"

(OOC@Veridia Prime: Is cool.
OOC@Panzersharkcat: What is you state?)

"Captain Tovan, this is Captain Alistair Barg of the Heraklean Diplomatic Ship Hague.  I am carrying a diplomatic mission sent to establish formal diplomatic relations with the government of Viridia Prime on behalf of the Chief of the State of Heraklea, Grand Admiral Adelei Kirrin.  We will comply with all security protocols your government has established.  This vessel is lightly armed for anti-piracy measures. Our armaments have been stood down.  We also carry a small compliment of marines for security of the ship and personnel.  Please advise further on international arrival protocols for Veridia Prime."

The HDS Oslo is greeted by an Acclamator II-class assault ship. A few minutes pass before it responds.
"This is Captain Stark of the CSS Nautilus. You have been cleared to send your ambassador aboard."

The poor crew of the HDS Hague were forced to wait several more minutes until finally the DWS Viper finally hailed Captain Barg again. In truth this was simply the Veridian way, making the aliens wait on Veridian time, silly posturing on their part perhaps but so was the way of things in the Dominion.

"Captain Barg you, your ship, and its occupants have been cleared by the Supreme Command" Captain Tovan replied. "We are assuming you are using some form of universal translation technology. With this understanding I am transmitting coordinates to a Dominion Starbase not far from our present location. We are to escort you there were a Diplomat of the Dominion will be waiting to receive your own Ambassador."

After the message, the two Dominion Warships changed their posture. The Viper came about, now ready to head in the direction of the station while the second ship came to the rear of the Hague. All three ships when went underway, going just a short distance from their former location to a small star system near the edge of Dominion held space.



Ambassador T'Rehu N'Vek looked out one of the observation windows as she watch the ships make their approach. She'd never been on a first-contact assignment and was eager about this one. Wearing a full environmental suit (as is custom when dealing with non-Veridian races), she made her way from the observation window to the door of the docking ramp where the Hague would be instructed to dock.

“Well, that's one thing we've learned about the already.”

“What would that be, ma'am?”

“They have a capacity for petty games.”

“They could just be severely disorganized.”

“You don't become a multi-stellar nation by being disorganized. I suppose they could just be disorganized in this system, but since this is supposed to be the home star...”

“I guess you're right ma'am. So how do we handle that?”

“For now we ignore it. Analyze their society. Record it. If we need to use petty games later on, we can keep that in mind.”

* * * * *

“Seal is good,” was called as the docking tube connected and the red light turned to green. “You're up ma'am.” Commodore (SW) Diana Bryant of the Heraklean Diplomatic Service stepped up to tube. She grabbed the entrance bar and used it as leverage to propel herself into tube. She swam through the zero-g until she reached the other end, then swung around to land on deck on the far side on board the starbase. Upon landing, she came to attention.

“Permission to come aboard?” she requested from behind the clear face plate of her own environmental suit as several other members of her mission followed.

The cutter carrying Commodore (SW) Elizabeth Hiroshi glided across the void from the HDS Oslo to the CSS Nautilus. She regarded the foreign vessel on the holographic viewport.

“Well at least they're efficient.” Commodore Hiroshi turned to look at her adjutant.

“Don't make the mistake of sneering at a foreign culture just because they're different. And definitely don't do it while they can see.”

“You're right ma'am. It doesn't do much for us to get the locals thinking ill of us.”

“You are used to dealing with other states that are significantly weaker than us. The Rheans do not match that description. While we can afford your arrogant bumblings with those we have already subdued, we cannot here.”

“I don't think you're being very fair ma'am.”

“And from everything I've seen of you, I think your rank is the result of careful maneuvering and not actual diplomatic skill. So keep your mouth shut unless I release you. Do you understand.”

“Yes ma'am.”

* * * * *

Commodore Hiroshi came to attention after exiting the docking tube.

“Permission to come aboard?”

Commodore Hiroshi would exit the cutter to see Captain Stark in the middle of two lines of Marines clad in full armor standing at attention. Stark was a middle aged man in his mid-forties with black hair peppered with gray in a Caesar cut. He was of middling height, approximately 1.7 meters (5'7") tall, and clean shaven, as per CSS regulations. He wore the standard gray uniform of the CSS fleet with jodphurs and black jackboots. Unusual among officers, he wore a pair of short-cuffed black leather gloves. Those who have seen him take them off, however, know it was not a fashion statement but a means of hiding a burned right hand. Though he had slightly gone to seed, in that he had a mild paunch, his build still reflected the athleticism of his younger days. Stark gave a salute and replied, "Permission granted. Might I have the pleasure of knowing who I am addressing?"

The door was opened and Ambassador N'Vek stepped forward. "Greetings" she said, smiling though it would be somewhat difficult to see through her helmet. "I am Ambassador T'Rehu N'Vek, the Dominion of Veridia Prime extends its welcome to you, please follow me."



With that the Ambassador led Commodore Bryant and her entourage down a corridor and into a meeting room on the station. After offering seats to all her guests, Ambassador N'Vek seated herself.

"The Dominion generally does not get inquiries" she stated. "Tell me Ambassador, what brings you and your crew so far to the edge of the galaxy?"

“You certainly may, Captain,” responded the Heraklean diplomat as she returned the salute. “I am Commodore Elizabeth Hiroshi, Heraklean Diplomatic Service. This is my adjutant, Michael Jones. The others are other members of my staff. We are here to establish diplomatic relations with government of the Confederation of Rhea on behalf of the Chief of the State of Heraklea. If all goes well, I will be assigned as the official ambassador from my government to yours.”

* * * * *

“Simply put, Ambassador N'Vek, the Chief of the State of Heraklea has decided to reach out to the rest of the galaxy. It has been determined that the future of Heraklea is dependent upon the diplomatic relationships we establish with other powers in the galaxy. As the only polity of significant status in this corner of the galaxy, we would be remiss in our responsibilities if we did not explore the possibility of a relationship with the Veridians.”

"I welcome you to the Nautilus. Come. I will see to your entertainment while we send a proper diplomat to you." He will then guide them to his office.

OOC: Well as much as I'd love to take credit for them, they aren't mine. Although I do edit in the Dominion crest generally somewhere and now that I've got a Veridian Alphabet, I'll be putting that in there too when its appropriate. That last particular shot, minus my additions, came from deviantart. I like adding imagines when I can to help everyone reading my posts better visualize whatever it is (be it an object, person, or environment) that I am talking about.

IC:

"Ah but of course, but of course" Ambassador N'Vek replied. "The galaxy is a chaotic environment and it is a wise decision to seek out others, though it should be done cautiously. No doubt your own government knows this all to well. The Dominion has only recently won a war in defense of this galaxy by those who intended to invade and occupy. In essence, first contact situations are not always as pleasant as this conversation we are having now. I am curious though as to how you found us way out here on the fringe of the galaxy. Would I be wrong in assuming that we are not the first space-faring civilization you've come across? No, we mustn't be, so who did you come across first. Must have been either the Centauri or the Sacaens, we've have the most contact with them thus far."

"Not that we mind terribly that our location is broadcasted to anyone looking for life" said the Ambassador as she continued, "although it would be nice to better regulate the flow of alien life in and out of our small edge of Korel. Oh but I digress, the Dominion has little problem with opening diplomatic relations between your people. Perhaps there is an economic opportunity that can be exploited, to benefit both our people of course. Tell me, what is your civilizations like and what technologies do you already possess? Perhaps there is something the Dominion can offer you to better elevate your people into the galactic community."

“My thanks, Captain Stark. While we wait for your diplomat, please, tell me more about Rhea. There is only so far that I am willing to rely upon the Centauri information for.”

* * * * *

“Indeed, Ambassador N'Vek, you are not the first nation we have encountered. In our corner of Korel there are a number of small monostellar polities we interact with quite regularly. We were, however, pretty much content to ignore the rest of the galaxy. A Centauri vessel stumbled into the home system one day and shook us out of our... insular mindset. Somewhat fitting in that Heraklea was originally a Centauri off-shoot colony, though our cultures have diverged greatly since. We have embraced a much more structured society than they have, with a very rigorous meritocracy to keep us honest, as is fitting a stratocracy as we have.. They were kind enough to provide us with information on the locations of various inhabited systems throughout the galaxy, including your own.

“And I can sympathize with the desire to control the flow of foreign nationals through your space. Heraklea has much the same desire, though space being as big as it is that can become quite troublesome. For the most part, we have settled on extensive anti-piracy patrols, and have welcomed foreign trade, even if the merchantmen are just through traffic.

“Which of course bring us to commerce. Heraklea has a very robust hunger for luxury items, somewhat surprising now that I think about it since we idealize a very spartan lifestyle and ethos. We also have a penchant for acquiring technologies we do not currently possess. We are capable of FTL communications bursts, and utilize multiple forms of FTL travel including hyperspace travel, time-space dilation field and worm-hole jump gates. There are a number of others, though for that I think we should turn things over to my trade attache and whoever you have that would be appropriate.

“I am curious about your own culture, though. All we know of it at this point is hearsay from our Centauri... cousins. I'd be very interested to hear how you view yourselves.”

"The Confederated States of Rhea is formed from the Leggaland Union, the West Asian Confederation, the Third Greco-Russian Empire, and the Commercial Republic of Panzeria, the successor states to the Second Greco-Russian Empire, which overthrew the original Panzeria in a coup. I am not Panzerian, thankfully. The original and utterly ridiculous name of Panzersharkcat was made by a teenager that got adopted as a joke and they finally got around to changing it after more than five hundred years after the landing. The groups that landed here on Rhea was but a small segment of a colonization fleet from another universe's version of the Milky Way, exiled for experimentation with the Force. The rest made it to a different quadrant of the galaxy, where they revived the order of the Sith. The Sith, the Jedi, ancient religious orders of the old universe, and all use of the Force was banned in the aftermath of the war between the Galactic Empire and the United Federation of Planets, in which the Federation was annihilated by an expeditionary fleet traveling through a wormhole between the two galaxies. It survived, however, as Earth was determined to be the origin of the humans of the Galactic Empire and its preservation deemed necessary and because of ambitions among the Sith. One of them decided to break off and form his own Empire out of the Milky Way and used the Death Star, a battle station with enough firepower to shatter a planet many times over, to destroy the gate holding the wormhole together. He was killed and the Death Star rendered inoperable in the Battle of the Gate Sector but Imperial forces on the Milky Way side were stranded, forcing them into alliance with their human brethren in the Federation. Admiral Kanos, the leader of the Imperial forces, banned the usage of the Force and oversaw the integration of the two societies. I hope that bit of history was not too confusing. Do ask if you have any more questions."

Down on Rhea, the diplomat is still being chosen.

"We Veridians are quite rich in culture, though we had our own difficulties. For several centuries our people warred with one another, the last of our great wars almost brought us to extinction. However, today we are a much more constructive culture thanks to the glorious dictatorship of Julian Augustine. The Augustine era taught us order, something that has become the bedrock of our society. For what creates famine, war, disease but chaos? We believed, perhaps in arrogance, that we had achieved perfect order in our environment before we took to the stars. Since then we have realized that our small bastion of order is a float in a sea of chaos that constantly threatens our way of life."

"Thanksfully" the Ambassador said as she continued, "the Veridian people are resilient and are prepared to face the challenges of the future with patience, ingenuity, and calculated thought. The Dominion itself, has made it a mission to procure where it can technologies that can improve the life of our society as a whole. Since our own first expeditions into space we have begun to perfect a subspace relay system for communication as well as a more proficient form of travel across the vast distances of our galaxy. We also utilize a technology that sounds similar to your own worm-hole jump gates, although ours are for small transit between planets by individuals. We have yet to construct any that are large enough to allow entire ships to pass through."

"The Dominion crowning achieve, however, would have to be our own extensive experiments and understanding in the fields of chemistry, biology, and medicine. We have mapped our own genome and have successfully altered our own genes to better our own species on the biological level. Perhaps there are medicines or procedures the Dominion could give your people in exchange for technology that would be beneficial to us."

(OOC: I'm not really sure what to do Panz until an ambassador arrives.)

“Yes, we have had our own problems with the forces of chaos. The anarchists of Ports' Rebellion following Black Wednesday left the republican predecessor to Heraklea in such a weak state, it couldn't stop a bunch of crackpots and loonies tacking over their own continents. The period of warlordism that followed is our version of the Troubles which have hit many a civilization in the history of the universe. It is a good thing the Kirrins survived the various purges of the Republican and Troubled Periods of our history, or we would never have constructed our own well ordered society.

“Piter Kirrin, the founder of the line, was an old school, hardliner Spartan back on Chiron. He volunteered for the colonial expedition because he thought the Centauri were doomed to lose the Progenitor War. As he put it, 'The only hope for the Centauri are the Spartans, who have become a bunch of poofs. Their only real saving grace is that they are less pooffy than the Peacekeepers.' His loyalist during Richard's War held what came to be called the Kirrin Vale for three years. They only lay down arms after the King agreed to make the vale an autonomous barony within the kingdom. Piter and his successors maintained an extremely strong militia comprised entirely of Kirrinheimers, people of the vale.

“Olivia Kirrin, the Baroness during the Republican Period, couldn't be touched by the Committee of Reformation as she was actually loved by the Kirrinheimers, and any move against her threatened massive rebellions by the militia, and Breton Ports' anarchists were slaughtered every time they tried to take Kirrinheim. The Kirrins preserved their people throughout the Troubles until Grand Admiral Arthur Kirrin successfully subjugated the other warlords.

“In relation to technologies, yes I think Heraklea would be most anxious to gain new medical technologies, and the interplanetary gates would likely quite useful as well. Tell me, are those gates only intra-system or can they be used for interstellar travel?"

“Confederations and unions within a united confederation. Sounds difficult to govern. Heraklea is a unitary state. While individual planetary systems will have a system commander, that officer's authority is derived from an appointment by the central government, and there is no area that can be determined to be wholly the province of the local government. And it seems as though the system of government for each constituent unit must differ greatly. How does such a system function?”

"The whole system is ruled by the Tetrarchy. Each of the four don't interfere in the internal affairs of the others in exchange for economic and military cooperation against outsiders. It works fine for us. It seems natural that different areas require different methods of rule and respect for the traditions of those places."
At that point, he is notified of a shuttle's arrival.
"Ah, he's here. Please, make yourself at home while I fetch the ambassador."

“Different areas require different methods of rule?” asked the adjutant. “What sort of drivel-”

“What did I say about speaking?” asked Commodore Hiroshi. The adjutant bit off retort that was eager to jump from his lips.

“I apologize, ma'am.”

“That doesn't answer my question.”

“You said not too, ma'am.”

“Good. Remember that in the future.”

“Yes ma'am. Permission to speak, ma'am?”

“Granted.”

“It still seems nonsensical and unstable to me, ma'am.”

“I agree. But it seems to work for them for the time being. Still, there seems to be multiple cultures attempting to appear as one. We should explore the possibility of establishing some sort of diplomatic relations with theses lower entities, just in case this confederation ever dissolves.”

“That may be a good direction to go, ma'am.”
