    Declare Beta Proximus/Krakos Eye.







    The Tau use their gravitic drives to jump out of the system, and they find themselves in Krakos Eye.



    Once they get there, they find themselves face to face with a familiar fleet. The commander personally hails the TPN fleet.

    Greetings! We come in peace on behalf of the Tau Empire. Our records currently recognize your faction within good standing with us, and so I believe it is safe for me to tell us our mission here. Our associates alerted us to a presence that built a strange apparatus in their sector, and we were sent to investigate their motives. We seemed to have been able to track them down to this sector, and we still want to question them. We must stress that our mission is a peaceful one, and we do not want to cause any alarm or un-needed violence.

    They're painted in the Sac'ea Sept color scheme. If it were the T'au Sept, they would look like sand.

    Greetings, Tau commander. This "faction" you're referring to is indeed here. The Golden fleet is here! We are reunited, we stand united!
    You have our permission to question them, but we do not know if they will be so cooperative.

    Also, should a gas giant I use for fuel also count as a planet?

    Thank you. We have communicated with the Golden Fleet on private comms, and we are working out an agreement now. I'm sure they will fill you in on the details. Congratulations on being reunited with your long lost comrades.

    Seeing as my small fighter is close enough to the sun, it lets off an eletro-pulse to try and get a better reading of the sun. It still does not detect other life in the galaxy. (I need to research advanced scanning arrays when my labs are done.)

    The electronic pulse can be detected and triangulated by big ships, but it will take one turn, not including yours.

    The secrets of the Krakos' eye anomaly have not even been discovered by the research station orbiting it, a small ship like that would only detect large energy fluctuations, and 9 unknown types of radiation. Perhaps in the future, the station could harness it's powers, but a faction that has never seen it before could not.

    Declare on Capella.



    Having Hailed the Unidentified Vessel but not received a reply , The Captain decides to Bring his ship in closer to the vessel , to scan it at close range , and If needs be , Prepare a boarding Party.

    They start scanning the Vessel.

    Alright , It's Probably time you knew of my ship's weapons and Capabilities.
    Weapons:
    1x Hull laser Array
    Fore and Aft Torpedo Tubes
    20 Long range multi role Missiles , Launched from silos in the hull

    It's extremely slow manuevering , but very fast with its Impulse engines.
    Has limited warp Capability.
    Has a "Silent Drive" System , effective rendering the ship non-existent to Radar and Heat scanners/Thermal Imaging.
    Research:
    FINISHED: Mining Bases
    STARTED: Shipyards (1/40)

    Declare Daruuk!

    On Daruuk, the warp ship gets ready to leave again, to explore the next couple of stars. The one that they are going after this time, referred to by the scientists as K-14-7-9, looks like there might be more civilizations there. The warp ship starts off.






    Warp Ship to Command, we have successfully entered warp. Setting course to K-14-7-9 now.
    As the warp-ship goes on its way, the scientists send out a message on the ansible.

    To the Capella star system. Some time ago we were able to create a contained blackhole, using our research in space-time. We were thinking that we could set it off around the relic, letting it get sucked in, and then we could contain it again. Nothing escapes from a blackhole, as far as we know, so we think that this technology we have might let us get rid of the threat. Of course, the technology is flawed, and we wouldn't know if it could survive a warp, but we can try. With this message comes an attached print for an ansible, so you can communicate with us.
    (For those who didn't know, the ansible is a faster-than-light communicator)

    Space-time research is coming along well. The scientists have discovered a way to start creating the contained black-holes with no casualties. The big ship is almost done with being built. The Warp Ship, on its way to K-14-9-7, is almost there.

    The Warp Ship exits warp






    The crew of the warp ship notices the residents of the system

    Hello, residents of the K-14-9-7 galaxy. This is the representative of the Daruuk solar system. How are you?
    Manners, manners. Anyway...

    ------------
    DARUUK
    ------------




    The large ship is finished! While the main goal is for establishing alliances and working as a merchant class vessel, the vehicle is also armed in the case of danger, with 8 missile launchers, two tesla cannons, and one experimental contained blackhole cannon. The plan is firing the containment sphere at something, and waiting for it to break. There is also another spare containment sphere onboard, to clear up the mess. The captain has been given orders though to never use it unless there is no other hope of getting out alive. The vessel also has a warp module, which is planned to be used immediately for establishing alliances with other civilizations.

    Space-time research is going well. Scientists have successfully made another contained blackhole with no casualties. It now resides as a desk ornament for the head scientist/physicist working on the Space-Time Research.

    Space-time research (8 turns)
    Large ship: Find a star to visit (1 turn)

    A small ship is launched from the surface of Tanagra and enters orbit. Energy signatures emanating from the ship are consistent with faster-than-light drive technology. This appears to be a landmark moment for civilization on Tanagra.

    As the drive spools up, a disproportionately large gravity well appears in front of the small ship-- something isn't right.

    Come on... that thing is tiny; the rest of the ship lineup doesn't look anything like yours.
    I'm also considering changing the window lights to a different color, in which case the difference would be patently obvious.

    Terra Amoris Declare

    The large ship has found a new set of destinations: First a system called V-71-2-0, and then another called B-0-4-27. Both are relatively close to each other, so straight after the visit to V-71, the large ship will go to B-0. The ship gets ready to warp






    The large ship warps successfully, and starts making its way to V-71. The contained blackhole has a little shake, but stays closed. It will take 2 turns for the ship to reach V-71

    Space-time research is going well. Now the scientists are trying to link the blackholes, or otherwise creating a wormhole.

    Large ship: Reach Votto Prime (:D) (2 turns)
