PostSubject: Mini RP - Tosev   Sat Nov 16, 2013 5:12 am

Name of system: Tosev system
Name of planet: Tosev-3
Planet Type: Terran, garden world status
Days to orbit sun: 279 days
Length of day: 22 hours
Reporting Ship: T.S.F. Lollard, 4th Exploration Flotilla
Commanding Officer: Order Captain Malik

Begin Report:

Tosev 3 is the first planet we came across since we starting mapping out this region of space that has intelligent life on it. The Tosevites, as they seem to call themselves through intercepted communications, are a bipedal insectoid race that have six eyes and a body shaped like an upright praying mantis with humanoid arms and legs. Purpose of anatomy is unknown at this point as we have no specimens, living or dead. From what we gathered this insectoid race has a philosophy that doesn't have any sense of honor or traditions but believes war is simply a way of life, instinctual. Somehow out of all of this civilization has emerged but now that civilization and the ecosystem of the planet are in danger. Based off intercepted communications the various nationstates of this planet are very close to a nuclear exchange. We have only estimates at this point but we believe that this race has enough nukes to level the entire planet. This race has achieved a very limited space program and has militarized its orbit but it seems this is solely focused towards the planet's surface. In the event of discovery our frigate can take out every orbital platform they have. We are currently awaiting word on how to proceed with this discovery but it must be stressed that war is inevitable among these people without intervention and they are more than willing to use nuclear weaponry to either win their battles or burn trying. End Report.

OOC: Not entirely sure what I want to do here but I figured I'll just make it up as I go along and, of course, follow your lead Sacae.

IC:

The Dominion's listen posts were spreading more and more as the years progressed. They were trained to listen for anything, everything if possible and though their range was limited they were being deployed under the guise that they were arrays for subspace communications. Encrypted transmissions were the easiest to capture and on this particular day they intercepted a rather interesting report, something that quickly prompted them to report back to the central command.

:::::Special Report::::::

Security Level: Highly Encrypted Transmission
Date: -310876.53
Reporting Location: Listen Posting 47
Contents: Transmission intercepted from Ordenreich, origin of the message calculated to unexplored region of space. Spacial coordinates attached with message. Garden world discovered, inhabitants are humanoid-insectoid hybrids. Threat level from species is minimal to nonexistent. Civilization is believed to be at industrial to post-industrial. Species believe to be along an extinction course. Possibility of suitable subjects to harvest for experimentation is high. Suggest a ship be dispatched to survey the situation.

(OOC: I'm going to wait till monday so others have a chance to post but these mini-RPs are just meant to be fun little skirmish RPs that don't really have a huge impact on the story but are just supposed to be a week to two week RP where everyone either fights or cooperates on a situation that I start. If you end up being the "winner" you can choose whether you want to include this mini RP to your nation or not. Up to you)

Talent Edward Emerson's Office, UN Headquarters, MY 2290

Scrolling through his messaging client, Talent Emerson read through a new assignment sent from his superiors. According what he had read, a message had been intercepted from the fringes of OrdenReich space, detailing a planet they had designated "Tosev", and on that planet was a race of pre-FTL insectoids, with a history of war and likely to begin a nuclear exchange in the near future. Scrolling down from the briefing, he then saw the nature of the assignment itself: To study the practical applications of cryptoxenomemetic engineering, through subtle intervention in the present situation based on modification of societal norms on Tosev.

Talent Emerson repressed a faint headache when he read through the assignment for the first time, trying to think though how he exactly intended to get this done. He was probably Chiron's leading mind on the study of xenomemetics, having compiled the Analysis on the Disposition of Memes and Memeplexes, but this assignment was almost certainly beyond him. He certainly was not a cryptomemegeneer by any reasonable definition of the word. That kind of subtle, undetectable work was best done by the Probe Teams. Nor had xenomemegeneer ever been applied practically in the first place. Then again, that was perhaps the point of this assignment.

Still, he steeled his resolve. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the kind that separated the grain and the chaff. If he could get this to work, he would open up a new field entirely and probably earn more than a few promotions. Additionally, he had been allocated a staggering quantity of resources, and he could not help but think that perhaps there was some hope after all.

How was he to begin, though, without even working knowledge of their society and culture? He could see no reasonable option but dispatching a stealth probe to the site, to observe communications and transmit data to cultural analysis expert systems. Though not always perfect, the systems always did provide a broad description of culture that was the bare minimum he could work with.

“Well, there is no people we've come across so far that can match these Tosevites for pure, naked aggression,” said High Admiral Ida. “They would make excellent shock troops if they could be controlled. Do we have any indication of how the Hochmeister plans to respond?”

“Not yet,” responded High Admiral Dvorak. “So far, we think he's still weighing his options, but there is only so much we can tell. It's not like we've actually penetrated his cabinet meetings.”

“I think you're slipping, Roger.” Said Grand Admiral Kirrin. “I remember a time you had bugs in every government house we could find.”

“Well, there are a few more that I need to worry about than there used to be.”

“True enough. Athea, what do you think about our ability to bring some of them into the fold?”

“We need more intel on their society. The lack of the concept of 'honor' is a point of concern, but if we keep them busy with other conflicts during the development of the next generation we may be able to do some social engineering.”

“Alright. I haven't made my mind up one way or the other yet. Until I do, I want us ready to deal with any situation. You said they may be on the verge of a nuclear exchange?”

“Yes sir.”

“Then I want us to be ready to smack down every bird they send flying. Send a taskforce.”

“They do have an early space program. They may detect anything we send.”

“Have the task force come in on the far side of Tosev from the planet. The star should mask the task force's entry and approach to the planet. They can then hide in between the star and the planet.”

“I think that's workable.”

“Make it happen. And make sure the taskforce has a battle squadron. Who knows what they may encounter out there.”

*The Hochmeister was brought in to discuss what was happening shortly after the discovery of the new and violent species.*

Micah: What do we have?

Officer: Sir here is the briefing

*Hochmeister Micah quickly read over the report of the new species and was silent for a second, thinking about how to proceed. When he finally spoke the whole room was in for a shock.*

Micah: Get me the Centauri embassy.

Officer: Sir?

Micah: Now. I want a line to the Planetary Governate in the next 5 minutes

It was a normal day at the office when Talent Diane Morris was alerted with an urgent notification from the communications system, indicating that the Hochmeister of the OrdenReich was on the line. Quickly entering the confirmation code, it was not long before she was properly connected. Once she was, she said, "Greetings, this is Talent Diane Morris, Ambassador of the Planetary Governate of Alpha Centauri. According to my notification you put urgent priority on your connection request. Is there any matter that I might be of assistance with, or that concerns the Governate in any way?"

Micah: Yes I did... I assume you know about the Governate eavesdropping on my explorers reports about Tosev-3. If not I am sure Brother Lal or one of the higher ups back at Centauri can tell you. Well to make it short my explorers purposely made that report easy to intercept. It is because we are dealing with a pre-spaceflight race that is extremely violent and extremely dangerous to all our empires if they attain spaceflight. However, it would be an atrocity to allow them to destroy themselves and the terran planet they live on. This is why I come to you. I know the Centauri are the authority when it comes to social engineering and are the best equipped to deal with an excessively violent race via indirect methods. My offer is that the Governate takes command of the situation at Tosev-3. That means preventing a nuclear war on the planet's surface and using your meme engineering technology to change the race's society to be less violent and more controllable. In return for doing this the Ordenreich will cede its influence over the region to your people and even agree to partially finance any projects your people have in the system in the future.

"Is that so? Perhaps it may be of interest to you that we have already commenced activities in the region, with one of our foremost xenomemegeneers working on the case. It may require some time, but we suspect that a race as technologically primitive as this one with little to no history of memegeneering should pose much resistance. Your offer for financial assistance in developing the region and your cession of influence here has been noted, and they shall be positively reciprocated, I promise that much. We have reason to believe we are not alone in having taken an interest in the planet, however, as clearly we cannot have been the only government to have intercepted the message. Let it be said, however, that we will not allow foreign involvement to impede our activities there."

"Is that all that is of consequence?"

Admiral Totes watched the holographic display of the Tosev System construct as the sensor suite recovered from the hyper translation. His task force arrived as intended, on the far side of the system from Tosev-3. Tosev sat directly between the task force and the planet. The navigator quickly laid in the course and after only ten minutes of acceleration, the task force was set on a ballistic course for a system orbit between Tosev-3 and system's star. When the task force was finally in position, it could easily move to intercept any nuclear armaments deployed in less than a half hour, more than enough time to prevent mass destruction. There they would wait while Grand Admiral Kirrin made his final decision on how to proceed with the Tosevite situation.

*on board the Lollard. The Order Captain was still monitoring the situation on the planet's surface his ship had established an orbit around Tosev-3 when it was confirmed that the Tosevites had no means to detect them other than basic telescopes. Even if they spotted their ship the Lollard would simply look like a meteor temporarily caught in Tosev-3's orbit. Order Captain Malik had been given orders to expect Centauri in the system as it seemed the Ordenreich made a deal or was making one in which the Centauri were granted rights to the planet and its people. His sensors all of a sudden lit up when a mass was heading for the planet. According to the sensors the mass was big and moving really fast. It also appeared out of nowhere so it couldn't be space debris. The Order Captain decided to open a line in case it was the Centauri*

Malik: Unidentified mass this is the T.S.F. Lollard, 4th Exploration Flotilla, Hierarchy of the Ordenreich. Our sensors are tracking your approach and we request identification. Failure to do so will compel us to declare this planet and its people threatened by another spacefaring empire and will provoke a response from the Ordenreich fleet.

Malik: Admiral Totes, I can only assume the reason you are this far away from Heraklean space is because your intelligence intercepted my report on these people. If you read the report your people stole you would know my ship is the one that discovered these people in the first place. As such this system is currently under the jurisdiction of the Ordenreich so technically you are violating Ordenreich space with military force. You probably should have a better excuse of being here then to prevent a nuclear war on Tosev-3 or you are going to have to explain yourself to the Ordenreich fleet en route

(OOC: As soon as Sela takes full command of the situation at Tosev I will drop the Ordenreich entirely as part of my RP and start RPing the Tosevites. When that happens I'll try to work closely with any involved parties to make sure I understand how they are influencing them. @Heraklea: Don't take my hostility as "get the hell out" its just chest bumping on my part. You won't have to worry about the Ordenreich when Sela's Centauri get there)

"Order Captain Malik, we are well outside anyone's sphere here. That means that ultimately this system is nominally under the jurisdiction of the Tosevites. It would be their sovereignty we would be violating, though I'm sure neither of us want to make that point to them. It's a shame though, Captain, that your nation is populated by those less charitable and humanitarian than we are. There are many amical protectorates within the Heraklean sphere with relationships based on preserving their races. Perhaps the Ordenreich can learn a few things from Heraklea on dealing with pre-space societies."

For the better part of a day, Talent Emerson spent his time making sure that the PDF had properly arranged the deployment of the stealth probe, and it reached Tosev almost as quickly as it had been sent. The device, guided by an intricate expert system, was intended to infiltrate the communications of the Tosevite race and then take detailed psych readings, thus providing the Centauri with working knowledge of Tosevite culture and psychology that could be abused for the purposes of memegeneering. The probe was equipped with sophisticated stealth technology that would evade the notice of all but the most technologically advanced sensors, and infiltration hardware and software capable of penetrating whatever meager security the Tosevites had. With that, it commenced to send a regular stream of reports, from which Talent Emerson tried to establish working knowledge of Tosevite memeplexes.

That was, until he was interrupted.

From the door came his young apprentice, an eighteen-year old named Corinna Parish, who was assigned to Talent Emerson for the purposes of her four-year apprenticeship mandated of all Centauri citizens for entrance into society. Often she kept him informed of goings-on when he was too preoccupied with his work - like many Centauri there was an intense and neurotic aspect of his personality. In that sense she almost served as a bridge between Talent Emerson and the outside world. Gently, she cleared her throat, as to capture his attention, and said, "Talent Emerson, sir, some news has come in from the Diplomatic Command. The Sacaens have permitted you to take control of the situation on Tosev, and are deferring to us on the matter. The PDF has offered to take us on a frigate equipped with a cloaking device to be able to work on this matter from closer up, we've been booked a shuttle for Port Garland. We'll have to leave soon, if we want to make it in time."

"Hmm," Talent Emerson replied.

While finishing up one last thought, he logged off of his quantum computer, and quickly folded it up for transport. Gesturing towards the door, he said, "Let us go, then, we have little time to lose. If you would like to bring any of your possessions, feel free to do so, but I have none such things."

Before long, the two found themselves on the bridge of the UNS Arachnea, and in the system of Tosev.

Looking at the sensors, he noticed something that he had not expected. "Wait. Are those the Herakleans? What are they doing here? They're not supposed to be involved in any of this."

Activating the commlink, he said to the Heraklean fleet, "Attention, Heraklean fleet. This is Talent Edward Emerson on board the UNS Arachnea, designated head memegeneer of the present operation for the preservation of the Tosevite race and planet. For what purpose is your fleet present in the system? The Centauri Governate has been delegated express control over memegeneering operations on Tosev, and we would prefer to avoid interference of any kind in this matter. We henceforth request that your clear the system."

*The Lollard had been lazily orbiting Tosev-3 when the Centauri ship finally arrived.*

Malik: This is the T.S.F. Lollard, 4th Exploration Flotilla, Hierarchy of the Ordenreich to the Centauri vessel that jumped in system. I have been instructed to act as the Ordenreich representative and liason to your operations in this system. The Ordenreich has ceded overall authority to your people so my role is to just act as an errand boy for anything you might need of the Ordenreich. Military protection, technology, scientists, staff I can provide that from the Ordenreich's side. If you don't need anything then I will remain silent and passive for your tenure here

"Talent Emerson, this is Admiral Totes, Heraklean State Navy. We received word of the Ordenreich discovery in this system and, concerned that the Writ would prevent the Ordenreich from interceding to prevent the mass death of Tosevites, we were ordered by the Chief of State to position ourselves to intercept any nuclear warheads that are deployed by the nations on the planet's surface. Judging from the single vessel you have, I do not believe you could do that. In as much as we are here under the Chief of State's orders to prevent a nuclear holocaust, we cannot accede to your request at this time. What I can do is forward your request to Kirburg Castle so that Grand Admiral Kirrin can make a determination on whether or not we should be recalled. I do request to know the nature of the memegeneering operations you will be conducting so I can include it in my request for further instructions. In the meantime, you can continue your memegeneering preparations and we will guarantee the Tosevites do not perpetrate an act self annihilation."

"Admiral Totes, if you truly have interest in the long-term welfare of the Tosevite species, you would accede to our request and allow us to conduct memegeneering without impediment. If we could begin our process of infiltration and dissemination immediately instead of being occupied in dealing with your fleet, your intervention will not be necessary. As for the exact details of our memegeneering operation here, they shall remain undisclosed for purposes of operational security. If you absolutely must remain in the system on the off chance of a premature nuclear exchange, fine, but we request the silencing all non-essential communications, the cloaking of the Heraklean fleet, and the recall of any vessels that could be deemed nonessential. We do not wish to alienate your people in this operation, but these are delicate proceedings that should be best deferred to the trained memegeneer present."

"Also, TSF Lollard, we thank your offer of assistance, but we respectfully decline. If you could make sure to secure the system from outsiders and alert us of any such incursions, we would be most gratified."

[Heavily Encrypted]

Operation Golden Chord
PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE DISPOSITION ON MEMES AND MEMEPLEXES ON TOSEV-3

The insectoid race present on Tosev-3 is one that has evolved from a species of hierarchical pack predators, with individual packs competing for scarce food and water resources. Upon the development of sapient thought, a system of organization known as the Brood emerged, based on the existing pack mentality of the Tosevites. Each Brood represents a self-contained society in continuous conflict with other Broods, analogous to tribal organization on Old Earth, and have developed distinct phenotypes due to generations of a limited gene pool. It should however be noted that the distinctions between Broods are not biological but social in nature, as all Tosevites are interfertile, without any extreme variation between broods. These Broods are structured into castes that each preform specific roles in society, the major castes being the cultivators, breeders, and warriors. They are led by individuals that could be compared to chieftains of Old Earth, ruling each Brood with absolute power based on combat prowess.

This state of affairs on Tosev-3 can essentially be attributed to the dominant meme of Tosevite society, Broodwar, which has been in existence since the emergence of the modern Tosevite species and collectively names the interbrood conflicts. Each Tosevite maintains a strong identity with its Brood, considers their brood to be superior to others. Because of the history of territoriality and ruthless competition for resources, the Broods are in perpetual conflict with one another, to genocide other broods, seize their territories, and obtain their resources. Additionally, Tosevite society strongly emphasizes the role of the warrior caste over other elements of society, as well as the increase of agricultural production in order to facilitate an expansion of population. Finally, technological development is almost singlemindedly focused on military and agricultural development. Thus, Broodwar can be considered to be memeplex with components of militarism, racism, agrarianism, legalism, and anti-intellectualism, somewhat comparable to the Old Earth memeplex of fascism.

Due to the strength of the Broodwar memeplex and the development of a strong meme-allergy, the emergence of other memes has largely been stifled. However, in the course of Tosevite history, two major alternatives to the Broodwar meme have been developed, both of which has been violently suppressed but nevertheless still retain carriers. The first major alternative is the Onebrood memeplex, based on the premise that if all Tosevites can breed, then they must be part of one larger brood, with a greater purpose. The memeplex was popular among cultivators and breeders, whose societal status have been adversely affected by the Broodwar memeplex. They seek overthrow of the warrior castes that lead the Broods, the end of the Broodwar, and the unification of all Broods into the titular Onebrood. Comprised of memes such as egalitarianism, multiracialism, and revolutionism, the Onebrood memeplex can largely be compared to the Old Earth memeplex of socialism. It experienced its initial success when a group of Broods on the eastern shore of the Tosevite supercontinent overthrew their chieftains and warriors and united into one Brood. However, the surrounding Broods demonstrated rare inter-Brood unity as they collectively put down the new united Brood, and massacred every individual of those lineages. Following the brutality of the demonstration, the memeplex was stifled, though many individuals still hold these ideas.

The final alternative is the Nullbrood memeplex. Like the Onebrood memeplex, it too seeks the elimination of the Brood distinctions, but in another sense entirely. The Nullbrood memeplex is based on the idea that the Brood are fundamentally flawed, and that it is the individuals that matter most in society, with the Broods being impediments to the potential of the individual. Largely espoused by Tosev's meager intelligentsia, the Nullbrood memeplex suggests a renunciation of the Broods and a focus on self-improvement through developing ones consciousness and improving one's understanding of the world. To replace the leadership of the chieftains and their warriors, the Nullbrooders suggest a form of collective decision-making akin to democracy, with those of the greatest merit involved in decision making, and ending the system of strict laws and punishments used by the Broods. As such it contains memes of transcendentalism, libertarianism, individualism, technocracy, meritocracy, and democracy, and is harder to compare to any specific memeplex common to Old Earth. This memeplex has never risen to great prominence due to its limited appeal and history of being suppressed.

[REDACTED]

***

Redacted Portion

Though a Tosevite society based on the Nullbrood memeplex might be the most in line with our own, such a society would be difficult to actualize, due to the strong meme-allergy a majority of the population holds to it. The time required to subvert Tosevite society to it would be excessive, and the conflicts it would cause are considerably. The Onebrood memeplex is that which offers the most hope to our operation, as it retains a broad base of support, and offers a high number of carriers. If vectors can be devised to spread this memeplex widely, and a retromeme deployed to induce a global revolution, the memeplex may enter into a dominant position. At that point more retromemes can be deployed to shape the society more closely in line with our own, and we can introduce ourselves to them using the concept of a collective destiny to ease our introduction. As such, a Tosevite society strongly under the influence of the Governare might emerge, one that may prove a useful tool in the future.
