CHAPTER FOUR

Friend or Foe

 

The Definition of an Alliance;

An alliance is a pact, coalition or friendship between two or more parties, made in order to advance common goals and to secure common interests. It can be a political agreement between countries to support each other in disputes with other countries, making them allies.

Alliances on a planet are pretty straightforward. Separated only by borders {ocean, river or imaginary}, they are leagues fashioned through philosophical similarities.

  1. On Earth, certain countries align themselves together {distinct factions}.
  2. On Eridanus, the many towered cities are filled to the top with people connected by brainwaves {except the Null}.
  3. The Seljuk can be called “reclusive”, preferring to keep things private {but things change}.
  4. The Ÿ€Ð are the Ÿ€Ð, an alliance unto themselves {whatever that means}.

The 4 planetary systems are separated by 64 combined parsecs {ea. 3+ light years}. They are 4 civilizations that could not be more dissimilar. 4 fates are being tethered together by an uneasy, unidentified, unwanted, unaware or unwittingly urgent alliance.

Choose a lane or it will be chosen for you.

The Ÿ€Ð {#4 above} have always been a wildcard in this corner of infinity. They are unsightly in the eyes of 95% of known species and revolting to the rest. To make their palatability worse, they carry an odor that would offend a Venusian Wasteworm.  Add to this unsavory list, Ÿ€Ð do not possess a shred of decency. They assume the worst in all things and act accordingly.

No good things can come of things, which they do not understand. Such is their attitude when an intruder dare enter their space without permission. On a normally ugly, smelly day, early in the year StarDate 2052, they are thrown for a loop by the critical combination of an unsolicited trespasser and fate..

The Ÿ€Ð star system is a simple one; three planets, of incremental size, in orbit far enough apart as not to exert gravitational influence on the others. Only one of these is suitable to sustain their species {not too warm, shrouded by dense clouds, extremely humid}{as opposed to Eridanus which is equally muggy but much warmer}. The clouds are an artificial blanket that covers over them, like a drapery over a window, so no one can see in.

One can imagine the horror that ensues when a shiny smooth O takes up an orbit beneath that protective security layer. They frantically scan and analyze in the brief time they have. Before a strategy can be formulated, a bright illumination clears away their synthetic security. For the first time in eons, the Ÿ€Ð are exposed to the harsh ultraviolet radiation of their star.

They are forced to make the proper environmental measures to ensure inhabitability of their world.

If there is one Ÿ€Ð-ian credo, it is “Attack first, ask questions later”. Galactic harmony has gone on too long for their taste. Their leaning would be to exact a measure of revenge.

…Parking @ Harmonia is free…

Harmonia Part 2

One thing is for sure, Harmonia is currently teeming with representative participation from hundreds of worlds; each to their own obelisk, onsite to proclaim their allegiance to the alliance of the peaceful.

It is merely a symbol of affirmation, devoid of committees and dualistic ambassadors, unlike the defunct United Nations of Earth which turned into a forum for gripe and strife.

Each participating affiliate will provide a physical representative, who will willingly be transported by     to take part in any issues, disputes or accords that need deliberation by the group, within the Harmonia main tower @ the Harmonia Council, in the Great Hall. The representative may be either selected or elected.

|Member citizenry may come and enjoy the natural wonders of the host planet {Mars} and matriculate in the obelisk of their homeworld, if they abide by the environmentally vigilant guidelines of the New Mars.|

The Great Hall in Harmonia Tower is reserved for the designated representatives of each member world.

  • A universal interpreter is available for ease of verbal or telepathic communication.
  • Foreign customs are to be observed when appropriate.
  • The nourishment required to satisfy the tastes of said citizenry will be provided in their obelisk.
  • Only sub-light speeds will be allowed below the radiation inhibiting belt, which begins at the top of Harmonia Tower.
  • Ground transportation autopods are available upon request.
  • Mutual respect is required and is strictly enforced.
  • Parking is free.

The Charter Members will be forever recognized as Earth & Eridanus & Seljuk. Others will follow closely.

The vast majority of Harmonia members know nothing of the other, or even that the planet Earth is in such close proximity. Like any confederation, there will be growing pains. No world will have greater import above the others; neither will dominion in any form be exercised.

Shambhala, Shangri-La, Utopia, Star of Serenity or Heaven? Just what may be the connection with Harmonia & every lofty kingdom, mythical or otherwise?

Lorgan is the final word.

The NULL Solution = Episode 162

The Null’s Solution has worked…

“Full stop – don’t anyone breathe!” He is serious. The last time he and Skaldic were in this position, bad things go happen.

One thousand-one, one thousand-two, one thousand-three goes by… so far, so good. No abject rejection as yet, just the looming visage of Lorgan. Of course he-she-it would be here.

Skaldic fills the group in on how the McKinney clan factors into the convoluted equation, as currently posited and transmitted, along with a respectful description of Lorgan’s role as gatekeeper and peacemaker.

In the bat an eyelid, Chasonn’s ship is sucked into low synchronous orbit safely above Harmonia. Blink again and four new buildings have sprouted, in the four directions on a compass, each reasonably tall and absolutely identical. The mysterious main tower turns into a mile-high lighthouse, a brilliant beacon that rivals the brightest star in the Great Expanse. Like a radar sweep, the beam projects away into infinity.

The Null’s Solution has worked. What is next? What it is!:

MY RIDDLE HAS BEEN SOLVED.  YOU ARE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:

-EARTH

-ERIDANUS

-SELJUK

-Ÿ€Ð

YOU ARE INVITED TO OCCUPY YOUR DESIGNATED TOWER. IN DOING SO, YOU THEREBY ACCEPT THE TERMS PROVIDED HEREIN. YOU WILL BE INSTRUCTED AS TO THE PURPOSE OF HARMONIA AND YOUR ROLE IN INTERGALACTIC PEACE.

ALL OTHER CIVILIZATIONS WILL BE INSTRUCTED TO REGISTER THEIR INTENTIONS ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF HARMONIA.

When the Martian horizon is just right, Harmonia’s guiding light reaches Earth, every time around, the sky lights up; like day, even if it is night.

The Harmonia Beacon does not go unnoticed. Just like a wildfire it spreads it unknown message throughout the galaxies. It seems to be crying out, ‘Whoever you are, wherever you come from, let this light be your guide.’ Of all the strange changes on Mars, this one tops them all.

Bastions of lesser-developed planets begin to pray to the “God of Light”. During the “known” history of the Great Expanse, has anyone seen anything like this?
