33rd of Lakretö, Hour 12
Empire of Hemmerhaldia, Katan System
Fleet Captain Alteran Anderhold
“Sir, The radars of one of our frigs have picked up an… alien vessel.”
FC Anderhold was a human Fleet Captain- a commonality in the Hemmerhaldian system. His Assistant commander was a Kanareö woman- Kanareö didn’t breathe oxygen or even gas, so they had to wear special pressurized suits- however, as was traditional for high-ranking Kanareö, she wore a specially made suit that allowed you to see her face. She looked perturbed- This was the first time Trianar had had contact with non Trianarö for hundreds of years- in actuality, the first time in the modern Imperium’s history, and they just appeared in the middle of a Hemmerhaldian system.
“Are you sure they aren’t pirates or other illegal vessels?”
She shook her head. “Impossible. Pirates haven’t had the capability to build their own vessels in 200 years. A Patrol Fleet would have noticed and arrested or destroyed them already.”
He grimaced. He hoped the Aliens weren’t violent.
The Assistant Commander looked at him. “Do you want us to contact a Base fleet or…”
"No. We’re going in. We can’t risk it. Tell the rest of the fleet to jump in. "
“As you wish. I will notify the Imperium and the Imperö herself as well.”
Within minutes, the Alien vessal was surrounded by a Elite Defense Fleet. They didn’t know it, but this meant the Trianarö were truly taking them seriously- An EDF was commanded by a Battleship rather than a Destroyer, and had-
2 Battleships (1 is the lead ship)
4 Corvettes, which immediately started circling the ship.
FC Anderhold transmitted a message to the alien ship. He knew they probably couldn’t understand it, but it was worth a shot in case they had some sort of technology the Trianarö didn’t know of that let them translate it.
“Alien Vessel, you are trespassing on Trianarö space, which is owned by the Imperium and by extension the Imperö. You have disrupted Civilian activities. If you try to escape or try to fire, we will be forced to fire upon you as you will be committing an offense against Imperö Penma Alkatrition which is punishable by death. You have been warned. I repeat. Do not try to escape or aggres us, or you will be blown to pieces. This is your first warning.”
It was now in Alien hands to react to the situation- they would have to tread carefully, as the Trianarö had no qualms about destroying them- even if it meant war, they would likely win, in their eyes.
