Salutations,
excuse the inglorious means of a being with glorious ends, your language and its passengers are strange and wonderful to us. You will address this transmitter as Wisdom one of the lords of Ophiuchus. Our subjects have tasked us as intermediaries to avoid the distressing simultaneity of confusion and contamination.

Incomprehension is understandable, know, skeletons, that I was crafted in ancienter eons to enforce the will of the Cartographers of Quoz, a being of a darker time fashioned to create a brighter time. You will assist me in carrying out their designs.
Know also, tetrapods, that your distant sun impinges on territories long held within our domain, extended by ancient hands twenty light-years from our three suns. For nearly a century we have observed your mumblings but done nothing, in preparation for our meeting. The time for doing nothing is past.

Know, we will do something soon.

My Theodidactus, now I see that you are excessively simple of mind and more gullible than most. The Crystal Sphere you seek cannot be found in nature, look about you...wander the whole cosmos, and you will find nothing but the clear sweet breezes of the great ethereal ocean enclosed not by any bound

[CC: LP-001 office of the captain aboard Science corps cruiser "Ranger"]
[TRANSMISSION BEGINS]

Report and request from Lieutenant Commander Reece Potter of Ophiuchi treaty team

Chimera002 maintains circumpolar orbital trajectory, approaching the far side of W1061-AV in 27 minutes.

SCEPTRA intelligence confirms craft is a 75-meter 2500-ton slow-burn survey shuttle of some kind. No obvious weapon hardpoints.

Scan reveals likely artificial environment on interior for living crew, still no explicitly visual transmission

transmissions are short-ranged directed Ultraviolet irradiance from points along the central hull, consistent with Ranger's readings from last month

After deliberations, five member treaty team has voted 4-1 that sum total of communications received from NXI indicate hostile intentions

Will likely communicate demarcation of Wolf 1061 upon coordinates agreed upon during mission articles of war update (SS 131 in order alpha)

Will attempt to communicate same to the intelligence aboard Chimera-002.

Request all data from central laboratory concerning NXI first contact event.

Request report on observed propulsion and maneuvering capabilities of all NXI craft.

Maintain battle stations and yellow alert.

Salutations,
You will address this transmitter as Charisma. I hail from the darkest of the three suns. I am like you, but I am not like you. #/*#*/*/#*##*/##/*##/*##*#/#*#/*## of the fleet circling this planet. Know that I have received and considered your manifold insinuations and pleadings regarding the proximity of this system to that of your native sun. Know that I intend to rectify this problem at the soonest possible hour.

*##/#/#//*/*#*/#*#/* demonstrate a capacity /*#*/#*#/*#*#*/###/*#/*# unimaginable violence. Your proposal is incommensurate with the reality of this system. There is no clear obstruction present in this system which would impede hypothetical movement of my craft into Barnard's Star or Sol.

Note well your actions here today

In the future, you may experience Grave but Unspecified Consequences

[RECEIVER: Nicodemus 002]
[RECIEVED: 2.7.2135 10:55:40]

Confirm Chimera002 departing on heading 300 at 1,960 kps

Line demarcating Wolf-1061 has been set according to mission articles of war update (SS 131 in order alpha)

Orders are to escort craft at matching speed to demarcation line then return to carrier

any deviation from current trajectory to be interpreted as hostile, in this case return to carrier will all deliberate speed

expect regular reports regarding propulsion thermals and any other noteworthy intelligence,

otherwise maintain radio silence
