WE HAVE JUST RECEIVED THE LATEST NEWS FROM BOTH FRONTS. WE CAUTIOUSLY SURMISE THAT THE SITUATIONS ARE IMPROVING, THOUGH THIS IS ONLY IN RELATIVE TERMS.

SEVERAL HOURS AGO, THE BATTLEFLEET ASSAULTING THE CHENJESU HOMEWORLD UNEXPECTEDLY BROKE OFF CONTACT AND WITHDREW. WHILE WE DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT FORCES AVAILABLE TO BOTH PURSUE THE FLEET AND DEFEND THE CHENJESU, OBSERVERS AT THE EDGE OF THE SYSTEM FOLLOWED A SHORT DISTANCE INTO HYPERSPACE AND TOOK LONG RANGE SCANS. THEY HAVE REPORTED THAT THE ENEMY FLEET SEEMS TO BE RETREATING TO NEARBY STARS RIMWARD, THOUGH FOR WHAT PURPOSE WE DO NOT KNOW. NONETHELESS, THIS HAS GIVEN US ENOUGH OF A RESPITE TO REGROUP. REINFORCEMENTS ARE ENROUTE FROM PROCYON, AS WELL AS TRANSPORTS TO BEGIN EVACUATING THE CIVILIAN POPULATION. WE EXPECT THEM TO ARRIVE WITHIN SEVERAL DAYS.

THE KOHR-AH, HAVING NOW BEEN CONFRONTED WITH A SIGNIFICANT THREAT CAPABLE OF INFLICTING SERIOUS LOSSES, HAVE HALTED IN THEIR ADVANCE ON HOME, AGAIN ALLOWING US MORE TIME TO COUNTERACT THEIR THREAT. ADDITIONAL REINFORCEMENTS ARE MOVING FROM UTWIG AND SUPOX SPACE, AND WILL HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO FORCE THEM TO RETREAT. THIS IS POSSIBLE ONLY BECAUSE OF RECENT ACTIONS BY THE ORZ. OUR OBSERVER HAS BEEN FOLLOWING THEM SINCE THEY LEFT VULPECULAE. THE ENTIRETY OF THE ORZ FLEET HAS SINCE PASSED THROUGH UTWIG SPACE PEACEFULLY, THOUGH AT FULL SPEED, SEEMINGLY PURPOSEFULLY AVOIDING THE ANDROSYNTH. THEY THEN SMASHED FULL FORCE INTO THE UR-QUAN KZER-ZA FLEET WHICH WAS UNDER COMMUNICATIONS BLACKOUT. CAUGHT BY SURPRISE, THE UR-QUAN WERE DECIMATED BY THE ORZ, WHO SEEMED BOTH INTENT AND CONTENT TO PLOW THROUGH THE UR-QUAN AT GROOMBRIDGE AND CONTINUE COREWARD WITHOUT DELAY. DUE TO BOTH THE PRESENCE OF THE UR-QUAN AND ITS DWINDLING FUEL SUPPLY, OUR OBSERVATION CRAFT WAS FORCED TO BREAK AWAY AND RETURN TO UTWIG SPACE TO RESUPPLY. HOWEVER, AT LAST CONTACT, THE ORZ APPEAR TO HAVE PROGRESSED INTO FULL-BLOWN TERROR, INDICATING THAT THEY DO NOT WISH TO BE CAUGHT. WHEN QUESTIONED AGAIN ABOUT THE ATTACKS ON THE CHENJESU, THE ORZ BECAME VERY AGITATED AND OUR OBSERVER WAS THREATENED WITH VIOLENCE, AND SUMMARILY TERMINATED THE LINE OF QUESTIONING. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS MAY WELL BE THE LAST TIME WE BOTH SEE OR COMMUNICATE WITH THE ORZ, THOUGH THE UR-QUAN KZER-ZA HAVE BEEN LEFT IN A SHAMBLES AS A RESULT OF THEIR ACTIONS.

HUMAN REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE CHENJESU: WE NEED TO KNOW THE STATUS OF THE CHENJESU ON THEIR HOMEWORLD IN ORDER TO FACILITATE EVACUATION. AMBASSADOR TZERK-TZIK-TZAK IS CURRENTLY INCAPACITATED HERE, THOUGH WE EXPECT HE WILL RECOVER, BUT WE MUST KNOW IF A SIMILAR CONDITION HAS AFFLICTED THOSE ON THE SURFACE. ADDITIONALLY, WE FIND SOME OF THOSE CENSUS FIGURES TO BE VERY STRANGE, ESPECIALLY THE VUX, MELNORME, SPATHI AND UMGAH POPULATIONS REPORTED. IN PARTICULAR, WE WISH TO KNOW THE STATUS OF THE SINGLE VUX, AND ITS PURPOSE FOR BEING ON THE SURFACE.

ARILOU DELEGATE: AS PREVIOUSLY STATED, OUR SENSORS DETECTED NOTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY AT ALPHA VULPECULAE, AND ALL INDICATIONS SHOW THAT IT IS A TYPICAL SUPERGIANT STAR. THE LAST TIME WE OBSERVED THE SYSTEM, MELNORME TRADEMASTER MAUVE WAS IN ORBIT AROUND THE THRID PLANET. WE HAVE DISPATCHED A VESSEL TO MAKE CONTACT AND PURCHASE WHAT INFORMATION THE MELNORME HAVE ABOUT THE STAR AND ANY ANOMOLIES THAT MAY HAVE BEEN THERE. ADDITIONALLY, OUR OBSERVATIONS AND COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE ORZ DO NOT SUPPORT THE IDEA THAT THE ATTACKERS IN CHENJESU SPACE ARE AN OFFSHOOT OF THEIR RACE, AND IN FACT CONTINUE TO SUGGEST AN ANTAGONISTIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO.

AMBASSADOR AHND: AS PREVIOUSLY STATED, REINFORCEMENTS ARE CURRENTLY HEADED TOWARD HOME FROM UTWIG AND SUPOX SPACE, ATTEMPTING TO SKIRT THE EDGES OF THE BATTLE TO REINFORCE THE BURVIXESE DIRECTLY AND ATTEMPT TO FORCE THE KOHR-AH AWAY FROM YOUR WORLD. WE EXPECT THEM TO ARRIVE WITHIN THE WEEK. ADDITIONALLY, YOUR CONTACT WITH THE SLYLANDRO WAS WITH A SIMPLE, NON-SENTIENT AUTOMATED PROBE. THE SLYLANDRO ARE UNABLE TO EXPLORE SPACE THEMSELVES, AND SO RELY ON SMALL FLEETS OF THESE PROBES TO EXAMINE THE UNIVERSE OUTSIDE OF THEIR WORLD. THEY MAY BE COMMUNICATED WITH SAFELY, AND ARE HARMLESS UNLESS ATTACKED.

AMBASSADOR FWARRIN: SHOULD YOU DESIRE, WE HAVE HOLDING CELLS AVAILABLE FOR ANY PRISONERS YOUR VESSELS WISH TO LEAVE BEHIND AT THE PROCYON STARBASE. ONCE THERE, WE WILL SUPPLY REPLACEMENT CREW AND WHATEVER REPAIRS THEY REQUIRE, PROVIDED THEY ARE WILLING TO BE DISPATCHED TO THE CHENJESU HOMEWORLD ONCE MAINTENANCE IS COMPLETED. WE DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT VESSELS TO PROVIDE ESCORTS, NOR DO WE HAVE A LARGE ENOUGH FLEET REMAINING IN KREUGER TO SPLIT THEM UP UPON THEIR ARRIVAL. HOWEVER, BY TAKING ABOARD NEW ALLIANCE OF FREE STARS PERSONNEL, BOTH YOU AND THE ELUDER CAPTAINS MUST ACCEPT THAT FURTHER MUTINIES OR DERELICTION OF THEIR STATED PURPOSE IN AIDING JOINT FLEET FORCES WILL RESULT IN SEVERE REPURCUSSIONS, UP TO AND INCLUDING POTENTIAL SEIZURE OF SHIPS BY NEW ALLIANCE CREW ON BOARD. IF YOU OR THE VESSEL CAPTAINS ARE UNWILLING TO ACCEPT THESE TERMS, THEN WE UNDERSTAND, BUT OUR RESOURCES ARE STRAINED TO THE POINT WHERE WE ARE UNABLE TO RENDER ASSISTANCE TO ANY CRAFT THAT WILL NOT ASSIST IN THE CONFLICT.

"Ok, let me just bring up the figures.
The Vux was a prisoner, up for a court hearing in two weeks for war crimes against the Chenjesu. The Chenjesu had received word of a secret plan of a terrorist attack, but he was caught. The Chenjesu must of thought it was a lone incident. SPATHI AND UMGAH
There is a small Melnorme trade centre on the planet, open to trading with Chenjesu.
There are some Umgah doctors on the planet.
Some Spathi chose to move here, hoping to be looked after by the old alliance leaders.
And all of the Chenjesu have entered into the same state as Tzerk-Tzak-Tzik."

The Arilou Speaker begins to look annoyed. The telepathic voice speaks:

"Chmmr delegate, rest assured that there was a portal in Alpha Vulpeculae. You will of course find nothing there now, we closed it as soon as the Yehat/Pkhat forces secured the region. As to the... story the Orz has told you, the Orz is notorious for such deceptive tactics. Please do not trust it, do not listen to it. It... enjoys confusing its prey in this fashion, almost as much as it enjoys causing mass destruction and annihilation."

Ambassador KZZKH, These crewmembers aren't prisoners. More like detainees. Once no longer in active danger of space battles I am sure they will be productive members. Especially supervised.
Holding cells place the individual at situation of inability to control the environment, which we, Spathi are not easy with. I was hoping these crewmembers be given positions at your world or space station. they ARE very capable. Perhaps you will be able to use them as integrationdevelopers for joining the technologies of our allies together.
To be angry is to punish yourself for the errors of others.

*Incoming Message Via Hyper-Wave Channel 11.5*

"Fellow delegates, Ambassador Ahnd speaking, I bring yet another report."

"From the Core; The Ur-Quan have comepletey stopped in their tracks. All vessels appear to be dead in space. Our intelligence officers that aren't dedicated to the victory at Home believe that they are attempting to regroup."

"From Home; As predicted the Druuge are retreating from our space. They managed to send the following message."

"We will return to collect our payment."

"The threat is not anything to worry about. With our ship porduction at 100% we should be able to hold off any new Druuge attacks."

"Also, the Kohr-Ah are being decimated. With the arrival of the Chmmr led battle group, victory is at hand. While many have been lost on both sides, the clear victors shall be the New Alliance. My prince thanks all of the sentients that have helped the Burvixese survive another cosmic blow. We promise to contribute more to the galaxy once the Kohr-Ah have been successfully removed from our space."

"I speak for all Burvixese citizens when I say, 'We are eternally grateful!'"

"Additionally, I plan to return to the chamber as soon as possible. I am already en route."

Suddenly, everyone present feels another dimensional disturbance, strangely similar to the massive psionic shock that was felt when the attack on Chenjesu space was launched. The Arilou Speaker assumes an expression of intense excitement. As it rapidly types on its console, all delegates receive a video feed on their consoles, which appears to be some sort of HyperSpatial radar display, showing thousands of spacecraft entering Hyperspace through the Orz portal in Chenjesu space. The Speaker looks up, and an ecstatic telepathic voice speaks:

"All delegates: I have very good news. Our QuasiSpatial assault force has reached the Orz' portal into Hyperspace. We have sent a large number of Skiff vessels through this portal. They will help the battle in Chenjesu space as much as they are able. We are making preparations to close the portal, but it will be some time before we can fully secure the area on both sides. We are... optimistic that the Orz can be driven out of TrueSpace entirely, if the Alliance continues to fight the remaining Orz forces.

We have dispatched additional reconnaissance craft to the Coreward Front. We hope to gain more... detailed information on the size and structure of the Ur-Quan fleets, and now have sufficient numbers in the area to provide targeted combat support, should it become necessary."

Well I, for one, would be interested in continuing this, though I currently have too much on my plate to be the actual GM. Anyone else interested in doing such?

I would GM this again if I thought we had some interest beyond just a couple of people. If some others want to show support, I'll open a new signup thread.
