Reply with quote

I extend my greeting to you, gentlebeings of the galaxy. I, Por’El Dal’yth, come to you at the behest of the Supreme Ethereal Council of T’au to announce the arrival of my people.
As a member of the Caste Por, I have been appointed to the position that you would understand as an ‘ambassador’ to the galaxy. It is I who will be the channel through which all information of the Tau will flow, and it is to me that all questions on the aspects of Tau culture should be directed to. I understand that the people of the galaxy will regard us with a mystique that may border on fear. We understand this: it is in your human nature to fear what you do not understand. We can accept this, and hope you can work through this slight misfortune in your race.
We Tau have been isolated from you for many years, through our own technological misfortune. What you have to come to know as ‘hyper drive’ has only been recently perfected by my species: our policy of expansion has not required us to make trips requiring massive amounts of time in faster-than-light-travel. Our Empire is a group of densely packed stars, and long-range travel has never been a necessity in recent times.
On discovering your galaxy, we immediately began missions of diplomacy and peace to outlying planets of your Outer Rim. We hope to avoid unnecessary conflict between our peoples, and hope that you can help us to work towards that through diplomacy and civilised action.
As the Tau representatives, we of the Caste Por seek to unite through diplomacy. Your galaxy is torn apart: this is not our doing, and we cannot heal it. We will not get involved unless we find it to be in the interest of the Greater Good, and even then, it will be only under the careful deliberation of the Caste Ethereal that we will decided.
We have had much deliberation and discussion regarding how best to spread knowledge of ourselves. It seems to be customary of your people to send representatives to the newly fledged governments of your galaxy, and we can understand the strains this can put on your factions. We seek to hear each side of every story, and to do this we must establish relations with each faction individually. It is in this way that we will share information: any faction which wishes to establish relations with the Tau Empire must accept our delegations to your governments. From there, we will begin trading information: as we hear the events of the history of your galaxy, we will begin to tell you the history of our species. Should you be open and unbiased with your information, we shall follow suit.
The information contained in this message is free, as is any information given on public channels such as this. However, any information given through the exchange outlined above is going to be information specific to your reception of us. Should you wish to understand our language, you must teach us yours. Should you want to learn of the Caste Fio’s technology, you must show us an ample gift in return.
Once again, I will bring to mind the connection that your galaxy will have with the Tau Empire: we will broadcast over this public holonet and over a private one. Should you have any private queries, they should be sent to any member of the Caste Por (This account), They will provide you with an answer, or should the circumstances call for it, forward your message on.

For the Greater Good,
Por’El Dal’yth

May I be the first to welcome you to the larger galaxy. While I may not be the leader of any government, nor a member of any of the major governments of the galaxy, I hope that I can still partake in this historic event of cultural and technological exchange.

On behalf of the member worlds and the Council of Fifteen of the Oligarchy of Vita, I welcome you to the galaxy, Ambassador Por’El Dal’yth.

That said it seems to me that you wish to be an information broker of sorts, and in troubled times that is exactly the thing that people can do without. In my experience people who know too much often get delusions of grandeur about their status and worth. We are fond of our secrets, Ambassador and would prefer it if they stay that way. For that reason, the Oligarchy of Vita will not be sending any representitives to meet with your people.

Thank you, Ms. Stark. The Caste Fio and Kor would be very interested, I am sure, to trade our technology with you, and delegates will be assigned shortly.

I am disturbed to hear this news, Ms. Pearson. You tell us you do not wish to know about our race? You are not curious of our history? And even more toublingly, you do not want to initiate peace talks with us? Please, reconsider your decision: we do not wish war-blood to stain our presence in our galaxy, and welcome every chance we get to avert it.

Many a time has that been said. :?

Yet we do not seek to unite your galaxy, Mr. Baelish. We only wish to ensure the furtherment of the Greater Good. What disputes you have amongst yourselves is not our problems: the time for diplomacy is much likely past.

I note that you have only mentioned humans in your introductory speech. Am I to understand another humanocentric empire is coming to unite the galaxy?

The meaning you take from my speech is your own: should you choose to believe that, that is your own opinion. However, we seem to be having trouble with your language: are you implying that we are here to divide your galaxy further?

I am saying that narrowing down the behaviours and nature of every species in the galaxy to human standards is a little too much like the Empire.
I appologise if I am wrong in my understanding, perhaps in the future you should reword your speeches.

Mr. Skywalker, perhaps you need to rethink your philosophy towards other species. Your language is a delicate thing to use, and I am still not sure of it's intracies. Are the majority of your galaxy not 'humans'? And are all your major factions not led by 'humans'? Please, if you can help, do. I can assure you, however, were your brains and mouths fit for our language, we would not persecute you for a simple misunderstanding.

The Republic of Nespis welcomes you to the galaxy. You may send us delegates at your leisure.
