The Arilou delegates now look quite alarmed. The telepathic voice speaks again, clearly showing agitation:

"Androsynth delegate, we Arilou have inhabited QuasiSpace for many thousands of years. You know next to nothing of other *times*, you have seen only the tamest of the horrible creatures that reside there. Your simple repellent device has been tested by the Arilou long before even your ancestors the Humans existed, and has been found to be of very limited use. Do not play with things you do not understand."

The second Arilou continues to tap on the portable Hyperwave, transmitting the Speaker's message, as well as regretfully announcing that the Arilou are still recovering from the Ur-Quan War, and cannot assist the Burvixese at this time.

"This is Prince Ghul. I am the leader of the Burvixese survivors. I have been thrilled to join such a large gathering of beings. However, our intial intent has not been fulfilled. We will accept what help we have recieved and return to our home star. We plan to return as soon as we have a basic society going. We expect this to take one standard week. Although we will not be ready to join the galactic community at that time, my people find it in their best interest to do so. I will listen to my people. I personally feel that we have much to offer the races of this sector."

"Arilou delegates, we understand your concerns. We trust that your experience with such matters is what should guide our decision. We have voted not to acquire the Quasi-Drive technology."

"Androsynthetic delegate, we do not wish to imply mistrust. We thank you for the oppurtunity. We hope further relations can be as fruitful as they have thus far."

"Ambassador Ahnd will rejoin you in due time."

"We want to give special thanks to the Chenjesu and Spathi delegates for their assistance."

*End Of Message*

With that, channel 11 was shut down. All previous communication on the channel had been recorded and sent to each delegates data systems.

The human ambassador stayed silent while he vigorously typed some sort of note on his comm screen, a look of displeasure on his face. William had been listening to the discussion the entire time, but he was uncharacteristically quiet during this meeting compared to previous ones. He eyed the congression once more before returning to typing.

The Pkhat was still angry and spoke again. "Arilou," he began, "what help are you if you do nothing but play games with us?! There are no time for games! If this 'simple repellent' was tested thousands of years ago, then you probably have a highly advanced repellent and the ability to travel into many, many dimensions! If you give us the blueprint for this, and the Quasi-Drive, no harm will come to us! This *them* you all are blabbering about can't 'listen in on us' with your technology, and you'll be helping the Alliance of Free Stars for ONCE."

When the shouting started, Spathi delegate shivered and there was a hint of him retracting into the shell, but only a hint, as Fwarrin got hold of himself.
To be angry is to punish yourself for the errors of others.

The Chenjesu spoke:
"I agree with the Arilou. They are the only ones which have first hand experience with Quasi-Space, and if they warn us of dangers, then I am not willing to risk my species's (or any other species') lives for something just to speed up travel.
We are almost set up in Gamma Krueger, when we have completely setup ourselves, we will consider doing some IDF research with any materials and information that we can gather"

The telepathic voice speaks again, sounding somewhat calmer:

"Pkhat, we have no repellent technology, none can be made. As we have stated before, nothing can be done to repel the truly vile things that reside in other *times*. You yearn for something that cannot be done, that cannot happen. Even if something could be devised to keep you safe in Quasispace itself, mass transit across QuasiSpace would be almost certain to attract the attention of these horrible things to our QuasiSpace/Hyperspace portals, and that would be the end of all of you. We say this not out of selfishness, but a desire to keep all of TrueSpace safe."

The council chamber doors open once more, and a half crystalline, half mechanical being scuttles in on four spiderlike, robotic legs. As soon as the Arilou delegate finishes *speaking,* it takes the floor.

GREETINGS, DELEGATES. WE ARE AMBASSADOR KZZKH, REPRESENTING THE CHMMR IN THESE PROCEEDINGS. WE HAVE REVIEWED THE EVENTS THUS FAR AND FEEL WE MUST NOW INTERJECT.

FIRST: AMBASSADOR TZERK-TZAK-TZIK, WE REQUIRE YOU TO EXPLAIN YOUR PRESENCE HERE, AND THE PRESENCE OF THE CHENJESU IN THIS SECTOR. OUR RECORDS ON PROCYON AND MEMORIES OF EXISTING AS CHENJESU AND MMRNMHRM INDICATE THAT ALL MEMBERS OF THE CHENJESU RACE WERE WITHDRAWN BENEATH THE SLAVE SHIELD BEFORE THE PROCESS BEGAN, AND WHEN THE PROCESS WAS UNEXPECTEDLY ACCELERATED ALL CHENJESU WERE HYBRIDZED TO A GREATER OR LESSER EXTENT. WE ARE UNSURE HOW IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOU AND THE RACE YOU REPRESENT CURRENTLY EXIST.

AMBASSADOR FWARRIN: WE FEEL OBLIGATED TO REMIND YOU AND THE SPATHI RACE THAT HIDING BENEATH A SLAVE SHIELD IS AN INADVISABLE COURSE OF ACTION. WE, THE UR-QUAN KZER-ZA, AND THE UR-QUAN KOHR-AH HAVE ALL EXHIBITED THE ABILITY TO CRACK SLAVE SHIELDS AT ANY TIME, AND THERE IS NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT OTHER RACES DO NOT POSSESS THIS ABILITY OR WILL DEVELOP IT IN THE FUTURE. WHILE WE ARE PLEASED THAT YOU ARE REACHING OUT TO THE DIPLOMATIC COMMUNITY, WE ONCE AGAIN URGE YOU TO CEASE YOUR ISOLATIONIST POLICIES AND REJOIN THE GALACTIC COMMUNITY. TO THIS END WE WOULD LIKE TO OFFER YOU A PLACE IN THE NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS.

ARILOU DELEGATE: WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR RELUCTANCE TO ALLOW OTHERS ACCESS TO QUASISPACE. THE CHMMR WERE ABLE TO REVIEW ALL OF THE RECORDED LOGS OF THE VINDICATOR, WHICH TRAVELLED EXTENSIVELY THROUGH QUASISPACE OVER THE COURSE OF ITS JOURNEY. THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING DANGEROUS INHABITING THIS SPACE, AND INDEED THE ONLY INHABITANTS OF QUASISPACE APPEAR TO BE THE ARILOU. QUASISPACE PORTAL SPAWNERS WOULD BE IMMENSELY USEFUL TECHNOLOGY TO THE NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS, ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF OUR CONTINUED CONFLICT WITH THE UR-QUAN. WHY ARE YOU SO INSISTENT ON DISALLOWING OTHERS ACCESS TO THIS TECHNOLOGY?

AMBASSADOR RTL-79: THE CHMMR SYMPATHIZE WITH YOUR PLIGHT, AND THOUGH YOU ARE FORMER BATTLE THRALLS, WE BEAR YOU NO ILL WILL AND WISH TO OPEN FRUITFUL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH THE ANDROSYNTH. HOWEVER, WE REQUIRE YOU TO CEASE THREATENING THE ORZ STARS. THE ORZ ARE A MEMEBER RACE OF THE NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS IN GOOD STANDING, AND THE CHMMR WILL NOT TOLERATE AGGRESSION TOWARD THEIR ALLIES. WE URGE YOU TO CONSIDER PURSUING DIPLOMATIC NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE ORZ WHEN THEIR AMBASSADOR ARRIVES. HOWEVER, IF YOU ATTEMPT TO FORCIBLY SIEZE ANY ORZ WORLDS, WE WILL CONSTRUE THIS AS AN ACT OF WAR AND RESPOND ACCORDINGLY.

MYCON DELEGATE: YOU HAVE NOT SPOKEN YET DURING THESE PROCEEDINGS. WE ASK: WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS HERE?

AMBASSADOR VIK: WE ASK YOU WHAT THE INTENTIONS OF THE VUX ARE AS WELL. ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE RECEIVED UNCONFIRMED INTELLIGENCE OF VUX RAIDERS ATTACKING THE SHOFIXTI NEAR THEIR HOME STARS. WE REQUIRE YOU TO CONFIRM OR DENY THESE ALLEGATIONS, AND IF YOU HAVE INDEED ATTACKED THE SHOFIXTI, WHY THIS SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AN ACT OF WAR AGAINST THE NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS.

AMBASSADOR AHND: WE WELCOME YOU TO THESE PROCEEDINGS ON BEHALF OF THE CHMMR. THOUGH WE WERE UNAWARE OF YOUR RACE IN GENERAL UNTIL VERY RECENTLY, AND UNAWARE THAT ANY MEMBERS OF YOUR RACE HAD SURVIVED THE GENOCIDAL ASSAULT OF THE KOHR-AH ON YOUR WORLD, WE ARE PLEASED THAT YOU HAVE JOINED THE DIPLOMATIC COMMUNITY. HOWEVER, WE URGE YOU TO TRULY TAKE PART IN THIS COUNCIL BY SENDING A REPRESENTATIVE TO THESE CHAMBERS, AS FACE TO FACE NEGOTIATION CAN BE MUCH MORE FRUITFUL THAN CONDUCTING BUSINESS ALONG AUDIO CHANNELS ONLY.

FINALLY, A MORE GENERAL MATTER: AS YOU ARE ALL AWARE, THE NEW ALLIANCE FLEET CONTINUES TO BATTLE AGAINST THE UR-QUAN ON THE COREWARD FRONT. THOUGH WE HAVE PUSHED THEM BACK BEYOND GROOMBRIDGE, THE UR-QUAN HAVE RECENTLY TAKEN TO FIGHTING WITH RENEWED VIGOR. THE COST TO OUR FLEETS HAS BEEN IMMENSE. WHILE WE STILL HAVE THE UPPER HAND, IF NOT REINFORCED QUICKLY, THE UR-QUAN MAY SOON BE ABLE TO TURN THE TIDE AND MAKE INROADS BACK TO OUR SECTOR OF SPACE. IN ORDER TO PREVENT THIS, WE ASK ALL NEW ALLIANCE MEMBER RACES TO SEND WHATEVER ADDITIONAL SHIPS THEY CAN SPARE IN ORDER TO END THE SCOURGE OF THE UR-QUAN IN THS SECTOR. IN ADDITION, WE BESEECH ANY RACES UNAFFILIATED WITH THE NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS TO CONSIDER SENDING SHIPS TO AID US IN COMBATTING THE UR-QUAN, AS THEY ARE ENEMIES OF ALL RACES, NOT MERELY THE NEW ALLIANCE.

Its speech concluded, the Chmmr retreated to its place among the council to await responses.

Tzerk-Tzak-Tzik turned to the Chmmr
"We welcome you Chmmr, but we talk with caution. We do not wish to become part of the Chmmr race.
Now, You ask how we are alive.
During the end of the war, we received word of your plan to combine the races of the Chenjesu and Mmrnmhrm to create the Chmmr. We did not wish for this to happen, so we formed a group called "The Free Chenjesu Society" and appealed to the High Council to stop this. We wanted our freedom, we beleived that the two races should be seperate, but you would not listen. The Mmrnmhrm said that it was the only way forward, and the Chenjesu agreed. So, for the good of the society we put our greivances behind us.
But then we began to notice things. The Mmrnmhrm were acting strange, aggresive even. They were not the same as the ones we had originaly grown to love. Worries began to grow again and with these worries, the society was rebuilt and we confronted the council again.But the Mmrnmhrm would not listen, they could not beleive that there was a fault in their programming. We told the council we would leave if the plans for the Chmmr continued and we tried to.
But thousands of Mmrnmhrm ships attacked us, we lost many Chenjesu, but we escaped, through Pkunk space.
The Mmrnmhrm quickly removed it from there data banks and continued with plans.

Finally, we wish to contribute to the war against the Ur-quan, once we have finsihed production of our new "Chenjesu Broodhome Mk. II"."

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PLEDGE OF SUPPORT, TZERK-TZAK-TZIK. WE APPRECIATE ANY CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE CONFLICT WITH THE UR-QUAN.

YOUR TALE OF ESCAPE PUZZLES US. WE ARE AWARE OF THE FREE CHENJESU SOCIETY FROM THE PERIOD NEAR THE END OF THE WAR, AND AS YOU SAID, WE ARE AWARE OF THEIR DISBANDING. HOWEVER, THE CHENJESU AND MMRNMHRM WERE NOT IN THE CLOSE CONTACT THAT YOU DESCRIBED UNTIL AFTER THE UR-QUAN FORCED US BENEATH THE SLAVE SHIELD. DURING THE WAR PERIOD, THE MMRNMHRM WOULD NOT HAVE HAD ACCESS TO THE RECORDS THAT YOU DESCRIBE, NOR WOULD THEY HAVE BEEN PRIVY TO THE AFFAIRS OF THE HIGH COUNCIL AT THAT TIME. ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE NO RECORDS OF A SECOND FORMATION OF THE FREE CHENJESU SOCIETY NOR AN EXODOUS FROM CHENJESU SPACE. WE HAVE PUT IN A REQUEST TO CONFIRM YOUR STORY WITH THE FORMER MEMBERS OF THE HIGH COUNCIL, WHO SHOULD HAVE MEMORIES OF THIS EVENT. ADDITIONALLY, WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK AMBASSADOR TOOKIE ZOOKIE OF THE PKUNK TO CONFIRM YOUR STORY OF THE EXODOUS THROUGH THEIR STARS.

HOWEVER, REGARDLESS OF THIS, KNOW THAT THE CHMMR HAVE NEITHER DESIRE NOR ABILITY TO INTERGRATE YOU WITHIN OUR RACE. THERE ARE NO MMRNMHRM REMAINING TO HYBRIDIZE WITH, AND WE RECOGNIZE YOUR DESIRE TO REMAIN SEPARATE AS A SOVEREIGN RACE. WHILE WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT NOT ALL CHENJESU NOR MMRNMHRM DESIRED HYBRIDIZATION, WE HYBRIDIZED WHAT WE THOUGHT WAS THE REMAINDER OF BOTH RACES AS A DESPERATE MEASURE IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO FREE OURSELVES FROM UR-QUAN TYRANNY. NOW THAT THE UR-QUAN ARE NOT AN IMMEDIATE THREAT, WE FEEL THAT THERE CAN BE MORE LEEWAY OF CHOICE IN THE MATTER.
