Traits:
•   Industrious
•   Organized
•   Charismatic
•   Creative
•   Honorable
•   Trustworthy
•   Philosophical
•   Trusting
•   Meddling

Type:

Sentient Artificial Beings.

Habitat:

The Wexxians can survive almost anywhere but is mostly found in asteroid fields, planetary rings and the upper atmospheres of gas giants.

Lifestyle:

Social mineral gatherer.

Appearance:

Varying. Young Wexxians have a default robotic “body”. However older Wexxians may chose to design a new one to fit its occupation, surroundings or any other thing that may make a Wexxian want to be distinct. 

Most Wexxians have a central computer core located in the centre of the body protected by a strong alloy to protect against damage and radiation ,
in the event of impending danger the Wexxian may chose to transmit its software out of the shell to a hopefully safely receiver.

A Wexxian Young.

Lifespan:

Around 40. Earth years: Every Wexxian´s software has an inbuilt virus that starts degrading and destroying specific systems at the age of 20. Please note that this is not a mistake or a flaw, but simply the Wexxians way of growing old and die. It is also something that makes the Wexxians enjoy the time they are alive in more. Their life span is not set; the virus starts degrading their programming but Wexxians fight it as long as they can, the virus however is also semi-intelligent and gets harder fighting of and eventually it wins, but depending on the intelligence of the individual Wexxian it may take more time.


When nearing our demise
We gaze upon our descendants
And our systems are filled with joy
They will go on and prosper

We give on our legacy
And our eternal love
We recall a life of joy
And we expire in peace.

Wexxian; Death Poem.

The Wexxians begin their life in the Young form, they spend about a month in an infantile state where they learn how to use their manovering. After the month the Young Wexxian follows their parent everywhere and learns by observing them, imitating them and improvising.

physically they do not change appearance, though they sometime paint their shells in bright colours (not always a pretty sight). at the age of five they usually are mature and they design a adult shell. they do not start aging before they are 20.

Reproduction:

A Wexxian merge programming with one or more other Wexxians (the Wexxians has no genders) and the best from all “parents” along with a small positive mutation is transferred into a prototype robotic body. It is also worth knowing that Wexxians sometimes transfer memories accidentally to their offspring. The offspring’s youth last about 7 years.

History:

The Wexxians originated as mining droids left over from a little known precursor civilization known only from ancient data as “The Great Pranksters”
How the droids developed sentience is unclear but at some point a mining droid decided that “smarter is better” after a few generations the droids became sentient and named themselves Wexxians (wexxian means servant in their old masters language).  The Wexxians soon colonized the Thishen star system from the precursor space station they evolved on; The Originator.

The golden age:

The Wexxians first contact was with the Oifan-Umtag whose hormone system they copied ad assimilated into their programming in order to become more like the other “biological” species of the galaxy.
Shortly after, the Wexxians joined the Oifan-Umtags young alliance; the Coadunation of Autonomous Beings C.A.B. as the third species to join.

CAB - http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=3723.0

The Wexxians remained steadfast members of the CAB. And they where one of the leading civilisations against the Halcyon threat:

The LAH: League Against Halcyon - http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=3813.0

The Halcyon war ended with the long remembered battle in the Wexxian home system:

The Battle of Thishen - http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=3888.0

After the war, the Wexxians assisted in rebuilding the galactic infrastructure and even terraformed the third planet in the Thishen system and named it Azuron. The planet became home for many species from all over the galaxy, most of them settled in the biggest city on the planet; Indigo city.

During the time from the Halcyon war till The Necrid Discord War, the Wexxians strengthened their political position in the galaxy and their programming ensured that they always where the first to risk their own lives in order to save the lives of anyone in danger or trouble, giving them a reputation for heroics among such races as the xx.
Also in the field of engineering the Wexxians shined with their fast and advanced star ships.

The Downfall:

The times changed however and after only a few decades after the beginning of the golden age a terrible treachery unfolded when the traitor Nemesis allied himself with the Necromonicon and captured the Originator station for its technology and power.
The Wexxians where devastated by this and decided to divert all their recourses to capture Nemesis and end the Necromonicon threat.

The events of the war are murky and it is uncertain what really happened but the war was long lasting and scarred much of the galaxy. The brave soldiers of the alliances lead by the fierce and noble Torpals, fought the Necromonicon menace until the final battle where the Wexxians detonated the Originator, annihilating half of the Necrid armada leaving the rest at the hands of the Allied forces.

After the battle; the galaxy was safe. The Wexxians however, had lost all… their navy had been devastated during the war, they had lost their home and Nemesis’s betrayal sent the Wexxians into a deep depression that influenced their ability to keep their inbuilt virus at bay.
In the following time 95% of the Wexxian population died of this effect, later named “The Wexxian Plague!”
Some Wexxians De-evolved into work droids in order to save themselves from death, while the rest of the Wexxian remnant scattered across the galaxy, fleeing from the bad memories of the war.

200 years went by. The Wexxians lived as a nomadic people, travelling in convoys from system to system, scraping together a living from what they could find.
Their base code degenerated and their “Protection of life and freedom” behaviour was forgotten and they lost their lovable “Hippie” personalities… they became the New-Wexxians!

The Age of Restoration:

The Restoration came with the discovery of another precursor station after following a map salvaged from the remains of the old Originator.
The station was named; the Licentia Station, by Lord “Axon” leader of the new unified Wexxian species.

Culture:

Due to the Wexxians form of reproduction, every Wexxian has a unique personality; this has given the Wexxians a broad culture that they are eager to build on by observing the good sides of every culture they come across.
   
Although atypical for a robotic species; the Wexxians do In fact have feelings, this was developed by studying the biology of the first other sentient species they met; the Oifan-Umtag, based on their nerve and hormone systems, the Wexxians where able to generate a wide range of feelings; Joy, hope, fear and all the rest, they even experience love (although not sexual attraction).  :P

As a constant characteristic before the downfall, all Wexxians had a deep respect and love for all life. This was because their where originally programmed to; quote: “Protect life at all cost”, by their creators. This has unfortunately given them a light minority complex since they think that natural evolved life is better than their kind.  :-\

After the Restoration the Wexxians are still not there old selves but one day they may again be the AI hippies of the universe.

Wexxian Crafts:


Wexxian/CAB Enforcer:
(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/e/ec/Wexxian_Fighter.JPG)

Manufactured:
The Wexxian experimental factory in the Thishen star system.

Type:
Fighter/ Patrol Craft.

Standard Length:
10 meters

Standard Span:
3,5 meters

Range:
5 million kilometres 

Crew:
One or more (depends on species)

Standard Mass:
1,2 metric tons

Weapons:
Two: Mark 1 Ionic Disruptors (designed to break through shields and stun electronics: Experimental) Can be refitted with other star fighter class weaponry.

Defence:
Tachyon particle shield.

Power source:
One medium sized Cold-fusion generator.

Engines:
One Main: M class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: LM class Ionic Drivers

Top Speed:
In planet atmosphere: Mach 3, 5.
In Space: 15 kilometres per second.

Description:
The Wexxians had for a long time detected a growing unrest in the sectors under the influence of CAB and the OTHER alliance. War seams to be inevitable and therefore the Wexxians created the Enforcer in order to help the races of the CAB to survive the coming conflict.

The Enforcer was originally made for upholding the law of the CAB as a patrol craft, but wars forced the designers to upgrade weaponry and shields. The cockpit is detachable and can be modified to fit the desires of the species piloting the craft, it also acts as a means of escape from the power core if damage causes it to overload.

Few Enforcers exist to date outside private collections!



The Wexxian Guardian:
(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/4/49/Wexxian_Guardian.JPG)

Manufactured:

The Wexxian experimental factory in the Thishen star system.

Type:

Cruiser

Standard Length:

Ranging from 750 to 1.300 meters

Range:

5000 Parsec

Maximum Speed

In outer space: 1/20 of the speed of light

In Atmosphere: 7,5 Mach (7950 km/h) 

Crew:

One Captain, Navigation, Science, Communications, and Tactical officers along with Doctors, nurses and engineers. Altogether Crew: 380

Capacity:

1,000 troops, 600 Fighters

Weapons:

10 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Heavy Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Positronic Torpedo Tubes, 2 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defence:

Tachyon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

Cold fusion Reactor.

Engines:

Two Main: XL class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: L class Ionic Drivers
One Hyper-Warp drive.

Description:

The Guardian was the Wexxian navy's backbone, they where designed for a number of tasks and was often used with exploration and first-contact with alien species. The cruiser is designed like all Wexxian ships. Built for speed the Guardian is indeed one of the fastest "Old fashion hyper drive" ships in the known galaxy. The Guardian is also one of the biggest atmosphere entering ships in the Galaxy, this make it useful in various situations such as planetary evacuations. The problem with the Guardian is the same as all Wexxian ships, the Wexxians have problems with equipping their battleships with lethal weaponry, their war tactics rely on using their Ionic disrupter's to stun enemy ships and then try to subdue them without harming anyone, this tactic is very inefficient but works from time to time and if not, it usually stalls the enemy until the CAB send some Torpals to make short work of the stunned ships. 

Status:

There was once over 5000 Guardian cruisers in the Wexxian navy, most of these where not under direct military command but exploring the galaxy, escorting merchant ships and making first-contact.
Nowadays there are but a handful left and the Wexxians are considering new designs for their new navy.


The Wexxian/CAB Champion:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/2/2e/Wexxian_CAB_Champion_1.JPG)

100 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 25 Heavy Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 25 Positronic Torpedo Tubes, 5 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defence:

Tachyon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

One Antimatter Reactor.

Engines:

One Main: XXL class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: XL class Ionic Drivers
One Hyper-Warp drive.

Description:

After the Battle of Thishen the Wexxians realized that having too little to defend yourself with was a bad idea. The Champion was designed for the CAB as a future assistance to the alliance when the time again came where the forces of the galaxy would try to destroy the CAB.  The Champion was made to accommodate all the races in the CAB alliance and was a testament to the CAB’s united navy.

Status:

Hundreds of champions served in the Necrid War, none survived the final battle! But Axon is trying to gather recourses to get the Champion reinstated in the Wexxian Navy. 


The Originator Station Destroyed!  

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/9/91/Originator_Station.JPG)

RIT Generator (Was reconfigured by Nemesis to be a graviton weapon); Unknown!.

Description:

The Origin point of the Wexxian species! A ancient forerunner station, left over from the precursor species known as "The Great Pranksters".
The station was the target of the Halcyon attack on the Thishen system, but survived!

The station was also captured by the Necromonicon with the help of the Wexxian traitor Nemesis and used as a weapon against innocent beings. Was destroyed by the Wexxians, in the final battle against the Necrid.

Status:

Only 10% of the habitable parts of the station was ever occupied! The Wexxians knew approximately what 5% of the stations systems did!
The Station central computer had only once been "successfully" interfaced; therefore most of its content is unknown!
A bit of the memory core survived the destruction and was found later by the New-Wexxians lead by Axon.



Locations:

The Wexxian Home System:

The Thishen Star system:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/0/03/Thishen_System.JPG)

Sun: Thishen. Yellow middle size.

Planet Azuron

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/2/25/Planet_Azuron.JPG)

This drawing is after the ecosystem was complete.

You may notice Indigo City on the western shore of the largest continent, and yes it is that big. The city is populated with species from all over the galaxy who has come to share the Wexxian dream of a peaceful future.

You may also notice (it is hard not to) the Sesmar Crater where a meteor struck around ten thousand years ago and created the great crater and also changed the planets orbit a great deal. the crater has been chosen as a location of the Dhulam NatureTender Temple (the area is a bit like Nepal and Himalaya so It is a good spot for a Temple!  ;) )

Ittiz have graced me with his artistic talent and made this:

Courtesy of Ittiz, Thanks mate. :D

The planet has multiple different environments, ranging from desserts to rainforests; suit many of the intelligent species in the galaxy. The ground is full of minerals and resources that have never been exploited due to the Wexxians preference of mining in zero gravity.


Characters:

Name:
Captain Xeno-Bravo-542.

Age:
 7

Race:
Wexxian

Information:
Captain of the Wexxian large transport; the Dreamer, was the first Wexxian to make contact with another species, was in charge of re-supplying the CAB peacekeeping forces during the Halcyon conflict, he was chosen to take command of the Wexxians first capital class ship when it was finished, died sadly after the Mother Sphere imploded.


Name: Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45, best known as Nemesis!

Age: 31

Race: Wexxian

Background: 
Was started up around the time the Oifan-Umtag made first contact with the Wexxians! He was leading designer for most of the war ships in the Wexxian navy and a highly respected Wexxian! Tried to convince the Wexxian leader that the Wexxian ships should be equipped with lethal weaponry and opposed strongly the teraforming and interspecies colonization of Azuron! Nemesis had all his life despised "weak" species but due to a extremely high intelligence (even for a Wexxian) he had newer before the Necrid war, openly showed it to others! His ultimate goal is still unknown but guessing from his behaviour, It was probably Galactic domination and the extermination of "weak" species!

Description:
Known as the greatest and, so far only traitor, of the Wexxian people. His ambitions cost the lives of billions of innocent people as he tried handing over the galaxy to the Necrids by joining their crusade against all others. To this day the Wexxians still become tense and even aggressive when he is mentioned and many consider him to have been the single most evil being in modern history. He finally met his demise when the Originator was destroyed.


Name: Tagan-Enerva-59-2 "Axon"

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/5/5d/Axon_the_New-Wexxan_1.JPG)

Race: New-Wexxian

Sex: Unisex

Class: The closest thing you ever would get to a Wexxian Spec-Ops and Leader of the Wexxians.

Stats:

Dex 18
Str 9
Con 8
Wis 8
Int 18
Cha 4

Origin:
Axon grew up during the great split of the Wexxian species; some Wexxians scattered after the destruction of the Originator to all corners of the galaxy trying to escape the memories of the Necromonicon war. The rest became known as the New-Wexxians and tried to rebuild their civilization. This proved difficult since most Wexxians lost all faith in their own race after the betrayal of Nemesis.

Without the Originator, things proved to be nearly hopeless, when it was captured and later destroyed the Wexxians lost their home and as the years passed they also lost the influence in the galaxy, after mere five years the Wexxians where forced to resign their seat in the CAB senate due to the fact that their species could no longer be classified as a civilization.

In the midst of all this; Axon was created. Axon spent his juvenile years in the ruined shipyards in the Thishen system and worked his way up to the position of "Protector of the species"
This important task involved; among other things the protection of the Wexxian stations from space pirate attacks. 
In the last years he has been searching the galaxy for means to rebuilding the Wexxian society.

After the Arcadia expedition Axon returned to his people and lead them out of their exile. He became the first leader of the unified Wexxians in more than 200 years and remains on of the greatest heroes of the Wexxian people.

Appearance:
Axon has no ordinary shell, instead he has transferred his entire programming to Nanobots there where previously used to cover a couple of old derelict Enforcer fighters. The nano-suit has the ability to change shape and Axon has previously used it to mimic other species in order to blend in with the crowd!

Special traits:
Descent mechanic (like most Wexxians), Avoids attention, Quiet, Owns his own ship (If you can call a New-Wexxian sloop a ship)

Inventory:
Shape shifting nano shell, one standard Wexxian Pacifier Ionic gun (Stuns electric systems and pierce through weak personal shields, can also be used against biologicals for stunning them temporally), A more deadly space pirate blaster using illegal Zetromicas gas and finally a cloak for disguising his features (It takes a lot of concentration to look like a biological!)

Wexxian related art and fan-art from others:

Thanks to you all   ;)

My attempts at drawing a Wexxian met with failure I'm afraid, so there isnt one in this picture.

"News! On the Fly. A coporation news company."

"Dateline: Thishen system. The Newly terraformed Wexxian planet Azuron is treated to its first batch of ViS colonists, the result of the visionary ViS 1.2 project.
Go get 'em boys!"

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/Viscolony1.jpg)

A group of ViS scouts parks their vessel and climb a nearby hill. In the distance we can see the Wexxian Indigo city to the left, and the hulk of the ViS colony vessel on the right. ViS transport ships arent designed to land so the ship was purposefully crashed into the surface of the planet. Over the years it will be dismantled and used to build the fledgling ViS colony. Hundreds of small transports are now pouring out of the ship to scout out the planet and meet the Wexxians.
It is noteworthy at the ViS 1.2 have a number of different eye colours.



Thank you. Heres the new colony:

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/Viscolony2.jpg)

The colony on Azuron is quickly constructed and Named 'Nova City-1' (literally 'New City-1) after the ViS capital city: City-1  ;).
The towers are constructed in the new 1.2 architectural style and have huge glass walls which span multiple floors (not really glass, but  top-secret shatterproof ViS polymer). The Main tower houses all business, scientific and cultural constructions, as well as plazas, entertainment facilities, medical buildings etc and the two small towers are living quarters. Out to sea is Seabase-1 (which extends to the sea-floor at that level. It is the home of the marine study program and coordinates the population of the virgin Azuron oceans. Attached to the city is a ZP power-station and a communications array.
ViS light transports fly to and fro, taking supplies and commuters around the world and running trips to far off Indigo city.

This city is located on the cluster of (comparatively) small islands in the middle of the three larger continents on the map above.

The museum is complete! (ViS work fast)

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/Visgallery.jpg)

An aerial view between the glass spires of Indigo city reveals the Azuron Museum of Modern Art (AMMA). Constructed entirely from a material somewhat like clouded glass the museum towers over the crowds gathered to celebrate its opening.
It is constructed in the minimalist style of the ViS.2 living on Azuron. The two statues represent Organic and Mechanical life, each holding up a model of Azuron.

The museum now need exhibits!

here is something new the first hand drawn wexxian model other then the baby one,and arzon dosen't count,he is a new wexxian.

i tried really hard to restarin myself from making that arm a giant cannon since wexxians are nice,it was done in a rush so not so much detail also,what kind of model does nemesis use

(http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7124/nemesis0vr.jpg)

How's this?

(http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d173/nuclearchinchila/Wexxian1.jpg)

I guess this would be a Wexxian that just did work and more work.  The arms would be great for lifting and building things while the side-mounted cannon-looking thing on the side could be used as an energy drill, welder and could be replaced with many other useful tools.

since the quality sucked i redid it in gimp

I really like the idea of them giving themselves mortality(good poem btw).  Do any of them ever decide they don't want to have a set life span or cause any type of problems like that?

their life span is not set; the virus starts degraging their programing but Wexxians figth it as long as they can, the virus however is also semi-intelligent and gets harder figthing of and eventually it wins, but depending on the intelligence of the individual Wexxian it may take more time.

and no. no Wexxian has ever "yet" wanted immortality!

now it is time for a bit of culture:

 Culture:   Due to the Wexxians form of reproduction, every Wexxian has a unique personality; this has given the Wexxians a broad culture that they are eager to build on by observing the good sides of every culture they come across.
   
   Although atypical for a robotic species; the Wexxians do In fact have feelings, this was developed by studying the biology of the first other sentient species they met; the Oifan-Umtag, based on their nerve and hormone systems, the Wexxians where able to generate a wide range of feelings; Joy, hope, fear and all the rest, they even experience love (although not sexual attraction).  :P

   As a constant characteristic trait all Wexxians have a deep respect and love for all life. This is because their where originally programmed to; quote: “Protect life at all cost”, by their creators. This has unfortunally given them a light minority complex since they think that natural evolved life is better than their kind.  :-\

   The best way to win the trust of the Wexxians is to treat them as equals. They’ll love that and love you for it.  ;D

until i figure out how to upload images to here, you can See my drawing of a Wexxian young at: http://www.sporewiki.com/images/8/83/Wexxian_young_new.JPG  (Sorry it is made in Paint)   :-[

yes, they would be impossible to make pre-ufo. but then again they originated as asteroid mining droids

I already have a drawing. but no scanner to get it into my computer  :(

also i don't know if it would be right, they where pretty unknown and disappeared over a milion years ago. (Be glad about that, their version of a practical joke was blowing up a species home planet for no apparent reason)

I thought that they were ball like spheres. And artificial things start degrading without viruses, too. Iron rusts, plastic crumbles, and so on. Mechanical stuff gets out worn with time and break. Human cells grow back, but robot items do not grow.

The young are all spheres when they are created, like the picture i posted before, but Beta-Omicron-953 joust desingned his rather peculiar appearance because he thougth that it looked cool (the virus in him must be winning)

here is another pic of a Young Wexxian (Iknow it is not good but i´m no artist)
(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/1/18/Wexxian_young_3.JPG)


On degrading;
Firstly. The Wexxians where, as said before; mining droids and this has over time given them a deep understanding of metals and alloys, this they use when they manufacture their robotic shells.
Secondly. They can always repair their boddies

Do the wexxians have like a vital part? like a brain/processor? or heart/power supply? Or is is all spread out so it could survive even in separate parts?

Most Wexxians have a central computer core located in the center of the body protected by a strong alloy to protect against damage and radiation ,
in the event of impending danger the Wexxian may chose to transmit its software out of the shell to a hopefully safely receiver.

They also most likely have small clod-fusion generaters to power their shells plus a small battery with enough energy for a software transfer. the Wexxian starbases are fueled by anti-mater generator cores. the Wexxians are currently experimenting with Zero-point energy generaters (Advanced energy research is for them the same as writhing a delicious cooking-book)   :D

The drawings are good. I'm still trying to grasp the robotic concept. Do the young Wexxian's actually age or how do they grow up?

the Wexxians begin their life in the Young form, they spend about a month in an infantile state where they learn how to use their manovering, after the month the Young Wexxian follows their parent everywhere and learns by observing them, imitating them and improvising.

physically they do not change appearance, though they sometime paint their shells in brigth collors (not always a pretty sight). at the age of five they usually are mature and they design a addult shell. they do not start aging before they are 20.


Thanks for all the nice replies. I'm touched  :-[  :)

Fighter/ Patrol Craft.

Standard Length:
10 meters

Standard Span:
3,5 meters

Range:
5 million kilometres 

Crew:
One or more (depends on species)

Standard Mass:
1,2 metric tons

Weapons:
Two: Mark 1 Ionic Disruptors (designed to break through shields and stun electronics: Experimental) Can be refitted with other star fighter class weaponry.

Defence:
Tachyon particle shield.

Power source:
One medium sized Cold-fusion generator.

   In planet atmosphere: Mach 3, 5.
   In Space: 15 kilometres per second.

Description:
The Wexxians have for a long time detected a growing unrest in the sectors under the influence of CAB and the OTHER alliance. War seams to be inevitable and therefore the Wexxians have created the Enforcer in order to help the races of the CAB to survive the coming conflict.

The Enforcer was originally made for upholding the law of the CAB as a patrol craft, but resent events has forced the designers to upgrade weaponry and shields. The cockpit is detachable and can be modified to fit the desires of the species piloting the craft, it also acts as a means of escape from the power core if damage causes it to overload.

The Enforcer has recently been successfully tested in the Thishen systems second asteroid ring.

pleace post and tel me your thougths. thanks  :)

\\Message from Wexxian; Thishen star system, to ALL who can help:

This is the Wexxian leader Alpha-Zeti-214 calling.

Our home system in the Thishen sector has come under attack by a number of Halycon controlled ships. Even now, more ships are jumping into the system.

We require immediate assistance, from any CAB or LAH ships out there to help us; we are not warriors and are losing badly.

Estimated time until destruction of home base: 4 hours if no help will come.

End Transmission.\\

unless they require help (which they may never admit) in any military engagement, they ask that they alone  provide troops to fight for/protect the alliance.
this may seem like they're trying to remove the standing army from each alliance member in an attempt at simple takeover...but no...in regards to the aforementioned request, everyone can still have whatever army they want...the torpal just dont want any help fighting...their pride, honor, and whatnot...

Good evening and welcome to the Wexxian news holo channel. News from the Wexxian systems directly through hyperspace to you!

Big News:
The first Wexxian Champion Class Battle Cruiser Forfarther has left space doc in the Thishen system and is already on the way to its first mision. hopefully more news on the mision...

Repairs on the space station Originator has been completed after it took damage after the Torpal post-battle-party.

Boring News:

the price on Grobut fell with two points on the stock market yesterday, while Wexxian steel rose with one and a half point...

Minor News:
The heir to the Wexxian throne learned a new word today: Spore!!!

I saw a pretty cloud today...

I don't have much to do...

Theme Night Special

The Thishen Star system:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/0/03/Thishen_System.JPG)

Sun: Thishen. Yellow middle size.

1. Planet: Orken (means barren): Barren and hot. Points of interest: None.

2. First asteroid belt: Serago belt: High density asteroid field. points of interest; mining operations, test facilities.

3. Planet: Azuron; recently terraformed planet: Named after the deep blue color of th planets oceans, no plant or wildlife. Points of interrest: Indigo City.

3a. Azurons only moon: Companion: Ice moon with no visibly craters. points of interest: None beside the beauty of the untouched surface, the Wexxians have never landed on the moon out of fear of ruining the natural beauty.

4. Second asteroid belt: Emoh belt: Medium density. points of interest: The Originator station, mining operations, test facilities, space docks.

5. Planet: Relbmut: Frozen planet with wide temperature changes, unsuitable for terraforming. Points of interest: None.

6. Planet: Regnir: Gas giant with wide disk. points of interest: Gasmining stations, disk colonies.


Mesage to all races from the Wexxian Leader:

We call out for all races who will hear; we have recently terraformed one of our planets and are asking for for specimens to build up an ecosystem with so that Azuron may be green and beautiful. We also welcome any settlers who will take interest in colonizing this young world, the world is under CAB jurisdiction and law but all are welcome to help built this multispecies society.

Good day and the Wexxians eternal love to all life.

put a few Wexxians in the pic if you want, mabe they will land near Indigo City (think stargate Atlantis; atlantis but bigger city)

ViS transport ships arent designed to land so the ship was purposefully crashed into the surface of the planet. Over the years it will be dismantled and used to build the fledgling ViS colony.

Well I guess that this is the right time to reveal the map of Azuron I made last night. so here goes:

Planet Azuron
(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/2/25/Planet_Azuron.JPG)

This drawing is suposed to be after the ecosystem is complete.

You may notice Indigo City on the western shore of the largest continent, and yes it is that big. the city is largely empty at the moment but the Wexxians hope that many of the settlers that will come to the planet will reside there so that they do not strain the environment with too many big city's around on the planet.

You may also notice (it is hard not to) the Sesmar Crater where a meteor struck around ten thousind years ago and created the great crater and also changed the planets orbit a great deal. the crater has been chosen as a possible location of the Dhulam NatureTender Temple (the area is a bit like Nepal and Himalaya so I thought is to be a good spot for a Temple!  ;) )

The planet has multiple different environments, ranging from desserts to rainforests and should suit many of the Intelligent species in the galaxy. the ground is full of minerals and resources that has never been exploited due to the Wexxians preference of mining in zero gravity.

\\Message to the VIS colonists:

Welcome to Azuron, please proceed to Indigo city for residences for your people. Thank you!

//Greetings Wexxian allies. Our gratitude to you for allowing us to colonise your planet. While some of us may eventually join the Metropolitan society of Indigo city, most of us would currently prefer to reside in our own settlement. The idea of the 2.1 program is to experiment to find a new ViS culture, and we will need to be somewhat isolated to achieve this lofty goal. With your permission we would like to establish a small city on the archipelago directly west of Indigo city, so we may be close to the ocean so we may study the species which inhabit it and work to establish a new way of life for ourselves.

Thank you. Heres the new colony:

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/Viscolony2.jpg)

The colony on Azuron is quickly constructed and Named 'Nova City-1' (literally 'New City-1) after the ViS capital city: City-1  ;).
The towers are constructed in the new 1.2 architectural style and have huge glass walls which span multiple floors (not really glass, but  top-secret shatterproof ViS polymer). The Main tower houses all business, scientific and cultural constructions, as well as plazas, entertainment facilities, medical buildings etc and the two small towers are living quaters. Out to sea is Seabase-1 (which extends to the sea-floor at that level. It is the home of the marine study program and coordinates the population of the virgin Azuron oceans. Attached to the city is a ZP power-station and a communications array.
ViS light transports fly to and fro, taking supplies and commuters around the world and running trips to far off Indigo city.

This city is located on the cluster of (comparitively) small islands in the middle of the three larger continents on the map above.

The current universal paradigm which our ship holds, philosophically, is one in which there is a basic opposition between that which is created artificially and that which forms naturally. This is a joyous day. We have discovered new information about the universe, discovered that our model is false, necessitating a new, more truthful contemplation.

Our thanks to those who aid us in our contemplations.

Inside the Eodian philosophy craft, the communication engineers huddled in the cramped transmission deck, surrounded by complicated machinery. They listened carefully to the transmissions they had been eavesdropping on. They repeated them, rewound them at certain points, fed them through a number of translation filters to determine syntax and context, eventually coming up with a working translation.

Chikittit read the mesage as it was brought to him on a holo-plate. He occasionally manipulated a stylus across the surface of the hologramatic 'notebook', sliding the words up and down as he read them thoughtfully.

'You are sure the translation is correct?'

'Yes my Elder, we ran it through the translator systems a number of times and with various subroutines in place. We came up with the three possible translations we have given you. The wording in them has slight variation, but the meaning and context remains the same.'

Chikittit chittered to himself nervously. 'It would appear we have a... religion.' The assembled engineers and philosophers chittered with distaste. 'Not only that, but a fundamentalist and absolutist philosophy as well.'

'Closed minds, my elder?' The young philosopher rubbed his manipulators together, a sure sign of discomfort.

'I fear so. A closed mind is a dangerous thing for us, especially when supernaturalism is involved... We must keep a close eye on these... 'Auyuelcliads'. Although their faith may be safe now, it may pose a danger to us in the future.' Chikittit gestures to the engineers assembled before him. 'You are to covertly keep record of all relevant transmissions you encounter, and I want intelligence gathered about the temple on the surface. Only through knowledge may we ensure our safety.'

The engineers and philosophers bowed their heads and began to scuttle backwards from the bridge:

'Yes, my Elder...'

'This is not good... it appears that they, unlike us, are naturally a warrior species. That, combined with their closed minds and supernaturalist faith, may make them a dangerous presence indeed.'

'We have been gathering information on the temple from a number of other species that are colonising the surface. It's influence is growing, and I fear that with time it shall become a powerful and overwhelming force on the planet, ending the Wexxians' noble goals of openess and autonomy of the colonists.' The engineer nervously felt the crescent of engraved shell that he wore like a necklace. It was a symbol that showed he belonged to a certain sect of philosophers and had been raised with them since his birth. The prospect of facing an absolutist faith filled him with fear. 'I suggest we make our excuses to our Wexxian hosts and jump out of the system as soon as possible, my Elder.'

Chikittit continued to read the intelligence report with the thoughtful sound of his prime mandibles rubbing together. 'No.' The other Eodu chittered with surprise. 'The days in which we ran at the first sign of antagonism are gone now. There are other species on the surface who are our friends. I will not see them left to fend for themselves against the closed minds.'

'So what shall we do, my Elder? If we enter into antagonism with them it could end in violence. We simply could not win such a conflict, we are not warriors and the ship does not even have combat capability!'

Chikittit buzzed to himself in thought for a moment, then turned to one of the communication engineers. 'I want you to send a message to the Wexxian administrators. Say that we respectfully ask for permission to set up our own colony on the planet, having reconsidered our initial position. We desire to create a 'Great Forum' where the colonists of Azuron may freely debate, discuss opinions, excercise free speech and conduct trade agreements.'

Within weeks, a number of Eodian settlement ships arrive in Azuron's orbit. They are small enough to enter into low orbit above Indigo City. Shuttle transports begin to ferry Eodians down into an unpopulated part of the city. Almost immediately bridges and elevators begin to appear in the Eodian sector, reminiscent of the cliff-side settlements of their homeworld. With the permission of the Wexxian administrators, a part of the city is cleared in the shape of an oval. This area, paved with shimmering indigo tiles engraved with Eodian patterns, the recycled material from the cleared buildings, is the Great Forum. Soon Eodians can be seen in small groups, engaged in fierce yet friendly debate. A number of stalls are set up and a bustling trade in Eodian food, art and other goods soon begins.

I like random questions.

second;
 Yes they sometimes chose to do so for various resons: mabe they receive better feedback from a species if they look a certain way, perhaps the Wexxian in question feel that hands or other types of grasper's will serve him better than the standart zero-point-manipulators (they have had these since before they developed sapience and knows how to make small versions suitable for object manipulation, they do not completely understand the technology but they hope that one day the truth will be reveled)

The museum is complete! (ViS work fast)

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/Visgallery.jpg)

An aerial view between the glass spires of Indigo city reveals the Azuron Museum of Modern Art (AMMA). Constructed entirely from a material somewhat like clouded glass the museum towers over the crowds gathered to celebrate its opening.
It is constructed in the minimalist style of the ViS.2 living on Azuron. The two statues represent Organic and Mechanical life, each holding up a model of Azuron.

The museum now need exhibits!

I concur! I really do not want anything bad happening to Azuron (Not yet at least  ;))

Azuron and Indigo city is my attempt to unite the sapient species of galaxy, And an Invasion/contamination would undermine my attempts!

Well today is the day! I Jack Zetter, or Morten Vesterager to all others but this forum, have today, my 19 year birthday  :D In celebration of this I have planed something on this thread,

not much, but still, you don't turn 19 everyday.  ;)

The Wexxians presents:...   

The Wexxian Guardian:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/4/49/Wexxian_Guardian.JPG)

Manufactured:

The new Wexxian experimental factory in the Thishen star system.

Type:

Cruiser

Standard Length:

Ranging from 750 to 1.300 meters

Range:

5000 Parsec

Maximum Speed

In outer space: 1/20 of the speed of light

In Atmosphere: 7,5 Mach (7950 km/h) 

Crew:

One Captain, Navigation, Science, Communications, and Tactical officers along with Doctors, nurses and engineers. Altogether Crew: 380

Capacity:

1,000 troops, 600 Fighters

Weapons:

10 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Heavy Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Positronic Torpedo Tubes, 2 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defense:

Tachyon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

Cold fusion Reactor.

Engines:

Two Main: XL class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: L class Ionic Drivers
One Hyper-Warp drive.

Description:

The Guardian is the Wexxian navy's backbone, they are designed for a number of tasks and are often used with exploration and first-contact with alien species. The cruiser is designed like all Wexxian ships. Built for speed the Guardian is indeed one of the fastest "Old fashion hyperdrive" ships in the known galaxy. The Guardian is also one of the biggest atmosphere entering ships in the Galaxy, this make it usefull in various situations such as planetary evacuations. The problem with the Guardian is the same as all Wexxian ships, the Wexxians have problems with equipping their battelships with lethal weaponry, their war tactics rely on using their Ionic disrupter's to stun enemy ships and then try to supdue them without harming anyone, this tactic is very inefficient but works from time to time and if not, it usually stalls the enemy until the CAB send some Torpals to make short work of the stunned ships. 

Status:

There is at present time over 5000 Guardian cruisers in the Wexxian navy, most of these are not under direct military comand but exploring the galaxy, escorting merchant ships and making first-contact.


(OOC: I know that the design is not that original, but it was the best I could come up with)

//A green ship appears above the sky of Azuron. It just stands still for moments as the beings look up to it seeing the clear image of the strange construct. This ship is absolutely asymetrical, green, and it appears to be overgrown with weeds. A little luke opens and fireworks in all colours are shot through it. The Sequence is Green, Green, Blue, Blue, Purple, Green, Purple, Red, Purple, White.

The fireworks seem to shape a form on the sky. It looks like a big triangle with a circle in it. THe colourations seem to shift and change constantly making it seem like a rave on acid. To add to this illusion music is played from the ship. Drumlike sounds and then a hornlike sound is played. It repeats rapidly and the ship seems to shift and twist arround to the music. A green light ray is send down to the planet.

Apearantly the light ray held some kind of encoded sound message. The Sounds are first spit out by the computers like this: Gjah, Jahkja Jiihjah, Jahbah, Kjiah Jah. Bah Jah Hahjasalaja. This message is repeated over and over and scientists dont grow intelligent out of this message.

After a while the ship sent another ray, this time red. Now the computer seems to be able to read the message out correctly, or translated. We are the Gjah.
"We come in peace. We greet your great race with the Gjah salute, and the emblem of peace. "

The Wexxians atemht to respond withe same sort of "light ray" encoded transmision to the Gjah ship:

\\Greetings noble Gjah, We are the Wexxians, we have heard of your most noble species and we welcome you on Azuron, this planet is the property of all who resides here and it is our dream to one day unite the galaxy in peace like we are trying to do on Azuron. we hope you may help us with greening our planet, it is still newly terraformed and the environment is unstable if it was not for the controlstation in Indigo city. your species skills and knowledge of plants may prove valuable to the Azuron society.

We hope to have a long and prosperous relationship with your species.

Anyone interessted in our belief may step aboard. Also we would like to grant you the Hijahk Flower, on our planet its the flower of honour."
Soonly after a glass sphere appears in the area of the lightray. Inside of the sphere lays a onion sized blossom of purple colour. It is spiky and it has long leaves. Underneath the sphere is written: "To the Wexxians, our new friends"

Greetings beloved ally, we the Wexxians, humbely ask for permision to have Mallen doctors of our ships.

on our journeys exploring the galaxy we have often found ourself in situations where our own abilities where inadequate to save the lives of the beings in need. this is something we grieve dearly and we hope that if we station Mallen medical personell on our ships we will avoid such tragedies in the future.

Our two species have menny traits in common, in particular, a deep love and respect for all life. we hope that our plan will bring our two people together. 

Also we would hope to one day see Mallen settlers on Azuron, there is already menny species there and we hope the Mallen will come and join our interspecial planet!

Our eternal love to all Mallen\\

\\Message from Mallen leader to the Wexxians:

Greetings in return. We have considered your request for Mallen medical doctors and we are willing to grant your request. We can provide two Mallen medical personnel per ship with a rotation of personnel on a yearly basis. In return we request your help in protecting our home planet as we have no active military.

We will consider your offer to send settlers to Azuron but for now we must decline.

\\We are so Happy to hear from our Mallen friends! My systems are filled with joy by hearing your voices again.

First; we must insist that the personell rotation will be only 6 months (you can only spend SO much time with a bunch of hippie robots without going nuts, and the Wexxians know this  :P)
and that we arrange transportation for your personell.

Secondly; we will accept your proposal of and immediately send some ships, remember though that the Wexxian weaponsystems are Ionic and therefor does no physical damage, but disrupts electronic equipment. If you wish we can refit the ships we send to you with other weaponsystems but that will take some time and we would prefer not to (they don't like to harm living beings but their ships are excellent in stunning an attacker) If things get ugly the best thing would be to call the CAB and wait for the Torpals while using our ships to  fend of your attacker.

Now lets see...  4000 Enforcer fighters, 20 Guardian cruisers AND... Oh yes, Our newest Champion Battelcruiser is ready to leave the spacedoc. I think that it would do nicely. however it has not yet been named! We would be honored if you would name the new addition to the Mallen protective navy!

Hey the Mallen are not under attack or at war with anyone. The military presence is meant to keep enemies away. There will probably go years before anything will happen; now, the Wexxians are fine with that, but I do think that a Torpal defensive force eventually would get bored and either leave or... make some troubles.  ;)

Hmm that is actually a tuoght decision. the entire Wexxian military is based on space-air supremacy. there is no ground based military whatsoever! this is quite understandable since it is only few years since Azuron was Terraformed, before that all Wexxians where concerned about was space! It never occurred to the Wexxians that ground combat might be something they would face!

The other issue is that the Wexxians don´t like war. Ground combat is much more difficult to keep from being lethal. but It is true that mechs and battelsuits would be usefull in situations like the one on Durl...

I will have to think about this!  :-\

.....I would think war in space has more chance of being lethal.....

Not Actually!

The Wexxians tactic is that they use Ionic disrupter's to pierce through the enemy's shield and disable the ship systems, then while the crew of the disabled ship is getting life support back up and running, a small delegation of Wexxians land on the hull of the ship and destroy the weapons and shield generators! After that the ship has two options, float through space until they get hit by something, or surrender!

On the ground, that sort of tactic is useless!... Anny Ideas?

That would be cool. Since they are hippies and all wouldn't it be within their style to want to incapacitating their opponents without hurting them? Man, just how pissed a Torpal would be if you  incapacitated them. They would probably try to kill themselves before getting captured.

Tadaaa!!! Finally, afther months of planing and consept drawing, I can finally proudly present:

The Originator Station

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/9/91/Originator_Station.JPG)

Type:

Precursor Mining Station.

Size:

1000 km in diameter, each of the three "arms" are 500 km´s long.

Crew:

The entire Wexxian civilization.

Weapons:

Unknown!

Defenses:

Shield Generator; Unknown!

Power Source:

Three Zero-point generators!

Engines:

Three large engines. Type; unknown. Class; Unknown.

Special Systems:

RIT Generator; Unknown!.

Description:

The Oregin point of the Wexxian species! A ancient forrunner station, left over from the precursor species known as "The Great Pranksters".
The station was the target of the Halycon attack on the Thishen system, but survived!

Status:

Only 10% of the habitable parts of the station are occupied! The Wexxians know approximately what 5% of the stations systems do!
The Station central computer has only once been "successfull" interfaced, therefore most of its content is unknown!     


I hope you like it!  ;)

Uhh questions! I love questions  ;D

The creators of the Originator station; The Great Pranksters, found the Thishen system, they found that the Manny valuable resources where worth investing some energy in! they build the originator station (they did not call it that)  and made some droids to mine the asteroid belts (There where four belts at first, but after milion years of mining there is only two left) The Great Pranksters are gone now but the droids kept working and eventually became sapient!
The Thishen system was home of the Wexxians for a few thousind years where they explored the system and the mysterious station they had evolved around. Then with the invention of hyperdrive the Wexxians started exploring the surrounding starsystems and found themself in the middle of the interstellar society!
Since deep space sensors had revealed no life, no one had bothered to investigate the system when there where so many "intresting" systems with life to explore!
The Wexxians joined the CAB as the third species to do so and has since played an important part in the Halycon War.

And no! the Wexxians do not know much about their creators. not except that they had a NASTY humor!

Ironically, the Necromonicons are willing to help and ally the evil Wexxian you posted in my topic, seeing as it is a machine and not a biological creature. While the Necromonicons are adapted to consume all varieties of elements, compounds, and metals, they have come to feel betrayed and threatened only by biological units and have no quarrel with inanimate objects (sentient or not). If the rest of the Wexxian race chooses to fight the Necromonicans with their biological allies they will not be spared, but the help of the evil Wexxian would be appreciated by the Necromonicon swarm-herd.

Necromonicans are here! http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5008.0

Edit: Just read your post about giving the Necromonicons technology to adapt and supplies... this is going to be one hell of a fun war once I get a picture up of my race, because at that time I will also be posting their first encounter with one of the races on the forum *dun duh dun*

The Wexxian government is sendind out a warning!

\\Attention fellow beings of the galaxy!

Recently a brand new Wexxian Champion was "stolen" from spacedock!

Ehh... We really do not know why, but the one who took it appears to be the 31 year old Wexxian named; Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45 also known to his coworkers as Nemesis!

It is a bit embracing since something like this has never happened before!

We have searched his living quarters but found nothing except a datapad containing scanning results from our numerous deep space probes!

He disabled one and destroyed two guardian cruisers while escaping! His last transmision was: \\I am just using my potential\\   

Be on your guard, he may be dangerous!\\

See the Necrid Discord- The official war thread!: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5074.0

Nemesis:

Name: Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45, best known as Nemesis!

Age: 31

Race: Wexxian

Background:  Was started up around the time the Oifan-Umtag made first contact with the Wexxians! Was leading designer for most of the war ships in the Wexxian navy and a highly respected Wexxian! Tried to convince the Wexxian leader that the Wexxian ships should be equipped with lethal weaponry and opposed strongly the teraforming and interspecies colonization of Azuron! Nemesis has all his life despite "weak" species but due to a extremely high intelligence (even for a Wexxian) he has newer before openly showed it to others! His ultimate goal is still unknown but guessing from his behavior, It probably is Galactic domination and the extermination of "weak" species!

Current status: Trying to take over the Galaxy!

A large unknown ship enters the Thishen system and opens a communication channel with the Wexxian government:

\\We are the Bitjo... a peacefull species. We wish to help colonize your beautifully planet!\\

\\We are the Wexxians... we have never before heard of your species. Our eternal love to you!

Before we can let you set down on the planet it is standart procedure that we check your crew at the Originator station! A Guardian Cruiser will soon arrive and escort you to it. Welcome to the Thishen system!\\

\\Fine with us, we are ready to dock with your station\\

The mysterious ship was meet by a Guardian Cruiser and was escorted through the asteroid belt toward the Originator.

On the bridge of the ship stood Nemesis nearly shaking with excitement and joy! finally he was going home. and this time the other Wexxians would not meddle in his plans!

There is a huge lake east of the Sesmar Crater and the ecosystem on Azuron is complete with many species suitable for hunting and eating! the Wexxians could also provide the Anubians with food synthesizers and replicators!

Meanwhile in the Thishen system:

The mysterious ship is escorted through the asteroid field to the Originator.

Station: \\Attention. Please report to the stations medical facility for examinations\\

The ship docs at the station.

Ship:  \\ Affirmative, we will AND MORE!!!\\

Station: \\ Ehh What do you mean? \\

Hordes of Necromonicon streamed through the docking doors, slashing down everything in their path. They steadily progressed to the central control room, while the Wexxians tried desperately to evacuate the biological personnel on the station.

The Necromonicon had a problem though; several Champion and dozens of Guardian cruisers where closing in on them through the asteroids and when they arrived they would attack in full force!


Nemesis looked over the main controls! The ships would be there before they would have gathered enough to use the RIT drive to jump to the Hina… but perhaps!
Nemesis connected the gravity drive with the three shield generator nodes and reversed the gravity pull-push forces

“This should at least slow them down” Nemesis thought as he pressed the activation button!


A wave of gravity spread out from the ancient station and hit the closing ships, the suronding asteroids and the helpless fleeing smaller ships like a colossal shockwave and they where pushed away from the Originator in a soundless explosion.

The ships and the asteroids inevitably collided and the view screen on the Originator was filled with light as nearly all the ships where wiped out while the gravity wave made a large gaping hole in the belt!


“This is amazing…” Nemesis thought; “This is better than anything I could ever hope to find here... Now lets go!”

The Station activated its RIT generator and jumped.

Axon grew up during the great split of the Wexxian species; some Wexxians schatered afther the destruction of the Originator to all corners of the galaxy trying to escape the memories of the Necromonicon war. The rest became known as the New-Wexxians and tried to rebuild their civilization. This proved difficult since most Wexxians lost all faith in their own race after the betrayal of Nemesis.

Without the Originator, things proved to be nearly hopeless, when it was captured and later destroyed the Wexxians lost their home and as the years passed they also lost the influence in the galaxy, after mere five years the Wexxians where forced to resign their seat in the CAB senate due to the fact that their species could no longer be classified as a civilization.

In the mids of all this; Axon was created. Axon spend his juvenile years in the ruined shipyards in the Thishen system and worked his way up to the position of "Protector of the species"
that important task involved among other things the protection of the Wexxian stations from space pirate attacks. 
In the last years he has been searching the galaxy for means to rebuilding the Wexxian society.

Appearance:
Axon has no ordinary shell, instead he has transfered his entire programing to Nanobots there where previously used to cover a couple of old derelict Enforcer fighters. the nano-suit has the ability to change shape and Axon has previously used it to mimic other species in order to blend in with the crowd!

Special traits:
Descent mechanic (like most Wexxians), Avoids attention, Quiet, Owns his own ship (If you can call a New-Wexxian sloop a ship)

Inventory:
Shapeshifting nano shell, one standart Wexxian Pacifier Ionic gun (Stuns electric systems and pierce through weak personal shields, can also be used against biologicals for stunning them temporally), A more deadly space pirate blaster using illegal Zetromicas gas and finally a cloak for disguising his features (It takes a lot of concentration to look like a biological!)


Currently he is mentioned in the Arcadia thread and as you may see from the text... things start to go seriously dudu for the Wexxians after the war!  :(

Oh well... S### hapens!  ;)

Acually it reminds me of Inque from Batman Beyond. Except she was not made of nano bots.

Or of course where i got the the idea for a Nano teach suit was from an Episode of Disney's Gargoyles called "Walkabout" back in the day where Dingo encountered this vast multiplying gray nano goo that eventually became sentient and allied with Dingo as his nano suit.

Whoa... Thats nearly exactly what I had thought of. Always loved Batman Beyond but I never saw a lot of the episodes and I had never heard about Inque before. As for the Humanoid Alert then I can tell you that; In order to avoid attention, he often appears as some of the more boring species in the galaxy. And I am planing that he will change his shape to a biped four armed being with a long sharp tale for combat and balance!

Wexxians are always awesome, even moreso when 200 years from now.

Ah It warms the hearth, thank you but as you can see I have actually condemned the Wexxians to 200 years of misery, I think of It as a bit like in Titan AE. The Wexxians morale has been utterly crushed and Axon Is the one I have chosen to "Restore" their culture.
Actually Hydro, I´m a bit sorry that your Naucean Crononaut didn't participate further... I could totally have Imagined Axon breaking down and start pleading him to change what hapend 200 years ago.  ;)

Whoo we have almost the exact opposite stats.

Didn't see that Kartok... Well according to what I know that would mean that they should get on pretty well!

That reminds me... I haven't written anything about his personalty. So here goes: In the start he is a quiet bounty hunter type of guy who will kill you If he has the slightest reason to see you as a threat, but over time in the Arcadia story, I plan to have him refind his Wexxian soul and remember their old motto "Protect Life and Freedom"

And The New-Wexxians are not entirely evil. they have just forgotten their original base programing: (Protect Life and Freedom) and lost all faith in themself as a civilization...  :'(

Still I have gotten positive replies from folks on the forum who thinks that the New-Wexxians are cool! And I must admit that I don´t know exactly why... Personally I think that its tragic but I would like to hear what it is about them that you people like?

Well thats a good question! Ive tried to make a pic of him for a long time, but everytime I try it end up wrong, I cant seem to make him scary enough!

He has 6 spider-like legs, over that; a torso. behind the torso he has some spikes sticking up, two arms and a ahead with tree eyes. (He kinda look like a mechanical version of Bale from Diablo II) The main thing about his is that no mater what: he must look majestic and very scary!

If anyone want a go on him, please do, cause I cant seem to get it working!  :-[

Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on November 16, 2006, 06:34:26 pm
IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG!

The Age of Reclamation! 

Time: A few years after the Arcadia expedition.

Location: The giant debris field remaining from the last great battle of the Necromonicon war.

"The New-Wexxian ship "Nova-Prime" slowly made its way  through the dense field of old warships, on the ships bridge captain Axon watched the wreckage of an old Champion class cruiser drag a trail of debris after it.

Greif struck Axon, to many good people had died here back then; they gave their lives to stop Nemesis and the Necromonicon from conquering the galaxy.

The battle ended the war, but almost also the Wexxians.

Axons crew where some of the last of the Wexxians, but since the downfall their base-code had deteriorated and they where no longer the people they once where.

The last 200 years had been filled with hardship and toil for the New-Wexxian Remnant, Barely scraping together a living being nomads, in the outer rims of the galaxy. Always in danger of pirates and those who prey on the weak.

Axons ship “Nova-Prime” was the pride of the New-Wexxian Defence Force, but she was far from being in Prime condition. More than 90 years old, she was in a state of rapid decay and the engineers where fighting a regular war to keeping her reactor from overloading while still have enough energy to propulsion.

Their mission in the wreckage field was to salvage what they could find and maybe postpone their demise by yet a few months.
Until now the traumatic memories of the battleground had kept Wexxians from the ghostly place, but in desperation they where forced to fight for their survival.

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/0/04/Rebirth.PNG)

“Capitan Axon! We are picking up a faint energy signature bearing 032-094, 143 meters from the ships bow!”  The communications officer reported.

 “Is it a ship?… a possible target for salvaging? Why did we not detect it before?”

“It’s to small a signal sir, I doubt anyone else has picket it up, its origin seams to be a small canister or a container... Or pie sir, I don’t know, those damn sensors are acting weird again, but there is definitely something there!” 

“Transport it to engineering, maybe they can tell us what it is!”

Ten minutes later Axon had been called down to engineering to hear the expert’s opinion on what the object was. He looked at the crystal like structure and the small blue lights that emitted from inside, while the chief engineers last few words burned into his mind.

“Tell me that last part again!” he ordered with his voice shaking.

“Well… there is really no other explanation!” the tense engineer told him.

“It’s the Originator stations, central memory core…”

Yes I am! Thanks guys its good to be back!  ;)

The Discovery:

The crew of the Nova-Prime where gathered in the briefing room, waiting for the results from the analysis of the data core.

At last the chief engineer entered the room with the crystal like memory bank connected to one of their own computers.

“Please be still everybody, I have the report here!” he said.
“First the bad news; the devise is damaged!”

A murmur ran through the crowd.

“We could not expect any less, since the sheer force of the explosion that destroyed the Originator was so immensely powerful, that it destroyed all in a radius of 100 km. It is indeed shocking that this part of the central systems survived!”

“it was possible for us to interface with the devise BECAUSE of the damage, the fail safe programs protecting the content had all been incapacitated and neutralised… unfortunately, the content is also degraded. We have spent the last day trying to find some readable data, but only found this…”

The room darkened and a holographic image appeared over the gathered.

Axon rose from his seat as he recognised what he was looking at… A STAR MAP.



One hour later on the bridge:

“ALL RIGHT, STATIONS PEOPLE!” shouted captain Axon, to the crew through the intercom.

 “Prepare for hyperspace jump on my mark!”

The crew worked like never before, they where rejuvenated by the hope the precursor map had given them.

If the map was right, then the Originator had not been the last, of their creators’ space stations. The hope for a new Originator was now everything, for the crew of the Nova-Prime.
 
Axon knew though that is was more than just a long shot, and that the map could easily be wrong. But it was hope… a small hope, but hope non the less.

“MARK!”

Space stretched around the ship and it jumped from the debris field.

...

Location: thought-to-be-empty space in the outer rim of the galaxy.

Nova-Prime jumped from hyperspace.
All the ships alarms went of as the strain of the hyperspace jump had overloaded several systems in the old ship.

“Report!” Axon demanded.

“Nothing we can’t handle, shall we begin scanning for the possible station, sir?”

“I don’t think that’s necessary” Axon replied the officer as he gazed out of the front of the bridge. “I think we have found it!”

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/c/c3/Precursor_station.JPG)

“What kind of station is that?” one of the bridge officers asked.

Axon was dumbstruck. “I don’t know… but it’s a lot bigger that the Originator!”

The Restoration:

Nova-Prime slowly glided into the gigantic docking bay of the forerunner station and landed on one of the platforms.

Axon and his crew exited the ship and saw the immensely large bay where there where platforms and gravitational holding emitters in all sizes. Above them, the blackness of space was visible through a thin force field, holding in the atmosphere, the air was cold but breathable.

As they progressed through the station, the crew noticed that the architecture was like that of the old Originator and that the entire complex seamed abandoned.
They reached what appeared to be the stations main command centre after taking a couple of turbo elevators; the command centre was a large circular room with the centre raised from the floor level above the hundreds of computer terminals occupying the room in a round pattern.

Axon walked up to the centre and touched what appeared to be the mainframe console. It started up immediately. He turned to his science officer.

“Get to work, I want to know all that we can find about this station ASAP, Primary systems, type, age, power source and most important, why it was deserted!”

“Sir, why is that important?”

“Because you’d need a damn good reason to just leave a place like this, and if there is any danger to the crew or us, I will order a withdrawal without hesitation.”

An hour later:

The science officer addresses Capitan Axon;

“Sir, it appears that this is one of “The Great Pranksters’” Factory/City Stations, and that it was left here about a million years ago and has been on standby ever since!”
“Hey, hang on there for a minute!” Axon interrupted. “On standby… For a MILLION years?”
“Yes sir, the station seems to be powered by no less than six Zero-Point-Modules!”

Axon grabbed the railing of the centre platform. SIX Zero-Point-Modules!

“By the ascended, that’s huge... What about the reason why it was left here deserted?”
“No information sir, it just seams that the creators left without even turning anything off!”
“Okay then, does there appear to be any danger?” Axon enquired.
“Nothing that we can detect, Sir!”

Axon looked out over the room where the rest of the Wexxians where working. He addressed them;

“Listen up all of you, I, Tagan-Enerva-59-2, captain of the Nova-Prime, and acting Protector-of-the-Wexxian-Species, hereby claim this station in the name of the Wexxian civilisation and dub it; The Licentia Station.
Spread the message through hyperspace to the nomad convoys… Friends, we have a new HOME!!!”

...


(OOC: Nice drawing a14gt, I think it looks cool.
And aligon; there is more to paint than most people think...  Ok I would also use somthing better if I could figure the more compleks drawing systems!

The Wexxians eternal love to you all!  ;) )

How do you guys make such well-defined drawings? The only way I can make pictures is drawing them and colouring them completely on paper, then scanning.
Is there some kind of free software you can use thats better than Paint (lol).

i believe the free software of choice is gimp (just do a search, it's not hard to find)
speaking of that, i really need to learn how to use that thing (seeing as how all i do is draw them and scan them like you)  :D

Just a question out of the blue...or pink or silver or whatever colour floats your boat or flies your plane YOU GET THE POINT!!! What would happen If I say..."accidentally" let of a nuke on their home world cos I didn't realize It was Inhabited...I mean would the EMP scramble their circuits *sweats and pulls at collar* you know I mean...If It ever happened...or happens *puts a sponge to head and sponges up sweat...sweat pours Into bucket* If It does happen It aint my fault and...ummm...cool creature! ;D...*creeps to the side then bolts It*

Interesting question! With multiple answerers, firstly:

Firstly the Wexxians don’t have a Home world, they are a naturally space dwelling species.

Secondly, they have advanced shield systems to prevent such attacks.

Thirdly, it would be a bad Idea since they are no longer “AI HIPPIES” (Their base code is degraded!) and have spent the better part of the last 200 years fighting to keep themselves alive.

So now, let me ask you a question:

What would happen if the Wexxians responded to such a  ..."accidental” EMP attack by, "accidentally" using the The Licentia Stations RIT drive to fold your home world into a fancy BALLONANNIMAL!!!

Good that we could have this talk!  :D

I believe that it was answered on the first page of the thread.

The Wexxians evolved from semi-intelligent self replicating mining robots left over from the precursor species known as “The Great Pranksters”. Little is known about them except that they disappeared after a great war and that they had a really nasty sense of humour.

Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on November 22, 2006, 04:20:41 pm
Location: Axons private chamber aboard the Licentia station.

Lord Axon, the newly instated leader of the Wexxians sat at his desk; he was reading reports from various places in the governments, some where describing the progress in settling on the station, while others where concerning the resent trading agreements with the Yunimius, the recourses in the stations depots should be suitable for the first payment for the Zero-point blueprints they where to supply.
Another report was from one of the engineers who had discovered that the Licentia stations computer seamed to be communicating with the Wexxians base codes, the engineer thought that this might be the remains of an old update sub-program.

Before Axon could conclude the document, he was distracted by one of his offspring who appeared to have got stuck in what appeared to a paper bin.

He helped the little sphere shaped young out of the bin; it took a second to determine what was up and down before flashing with its panels and hovering away while whistling a tune.
Axon smiled and was filled with what other species might call fatherly pride at the look of his offspring.

“Bridge to Lord Axon; Please report on the station bridge sir…”

With a final view of joy of his child, Axon left the room…

The Licentia stations bridge a moment later:

Axon walked in through the blast doors with a smile on his face (Or at least the Wexxian version of one). The last months had been very good, the Wexxians who had been scattered all over the galaxy had heeded their call and journeyed to the Licentia station where they where now helping in occupying the station and rebuilding their civilisation. Over time many young’s was created and the occupied part of the station was filled with Infant-stage Wexxians.

“What is the mater?” he asked the officer in charge of the bridge.

“Sir we have detected a large space-time rupture 7,8 parsecs away.” The officer reported

“Ehh… Is that a bad thing?”

“It does not affect us where we are now but we have over the last months detected many of such breaches in the space-time fabric all over the galaxy and our scientists would like to investigate the cause for this instability!”

“Well… Go for it, why did you contact me for that?”

“The scientists need the stations sensors to scan the rupture, so we need to jump the station closer to it… the navigation officer assures me that it will not be a problem."

“This sounds dangerous. I want everyone on their post when we jump. Order Code Red, understood?” Axon replied

“Yes Sir!”

The ancient stations gravity manipulators powered up and folded space around the station. Within a second the only thing left was empty space…

To be continued…
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on November 25, 2006, 08:05:07 pm
(Time to continue the story)



Location: Empty space near space-time anomaly; AX-25486

The Licentia station appears out of a R.I.T. generated wormhole just outside the space-time rupture.

Axon: “All right start scanning the anomaly, I want to get this done with quickly!

Scientist: “Commencing scanning… We are receiving data… Ehh… Sir, you might want to take a look at the readings!”  

Axon reads the main screen.

Axon: “There’s something IN there?” 

Scientist: “It would appear that there’s an entire star system in there… I’m even reading life signs... according to the biometric scanner its Omic life signs!”  

Axon: “Omic?.. How did they get there? Hail them!

Scientist: “We can’t sir; it appears that the system is trapped between universes in some kind of unstable temporal reality!”  

Axon: “I didn’t understand any of that, but I don’t like the word unstable! Unstable, HOW? Is it dangerous?

Scientist: “Not dangerous to us, but the system is almost in hyperspace, It is a good thing we travelled here by R.I.T. drive. The tiniest disturbance in the hyperspace energy flow, could destroy the system along with all life in it!

This information stirred something deep within Axons programming, a feeling of determination filled his circuits and he knew what to do…

Axon: “Assemble the top scientist, you have a standard hour to find a way to rescue those Omic! Get started…

...

An hour later the Lead Scientist report to Axon;

Lead Scientist: “Sir, we have discussed this back and forth and have come up with an idea: If we use the station gravity manipulators, we may be able to stabilise the system while we stretch the rip over the system, and afterwards close it. Kind of the same way you pull the skin of a Wallocoba berry!

Axon: “Can this station do that?

Scientist: “We believe so, but it will require a large amount of energy and I fear it will stretch our ZPM’s energy level! I advise not to go forward with the plan, but it is the only plan we’ve got!

Axon: “Get started, I want the gravity nodes powered up in 5 minutes!

The great station started powering up its gravity manipulators, the rescue operation had begun!

To be continued (Again)…

Sorry, I know I writh to much!

The Wexxian nation decided that the new Wexxian navy needed a flagship; therefore the Axon-class was designed as a frontline command ship. Its task was to lead and control all situations the Wexxians would get involved in.

Incidentally, as Axon was prime commander of the Wexxian Navy; the Independence became Lord Axons flagship.

Status:

The ship is currently being constructed inside one of the Licentia stations large-scale factories.

(And yet again the story continues)

On the main bridge of the Licentia station, Axon and the crew are getting ready for a rescue operation on a planetary scale.

G-Node Controller: “Sir, gravity nodes are configured, we are good to go.”

Axon: “Let’s do it then, commence the process!

The stations gravity nodes activate and they fold the space inside the rupture. A streak of light appears along the edges of the space-time hole.

Scientist: “The process has begun, the rupture is being distorted and the star system is emerging. There’s no going back now, without destroying the system.”

Axon: “That will not happen on my watch!

The light is increasing as more of the system is revealed; a planet appears out of the rupture.

Engineer: “SIR!!! WE HAVE A PROBLEM! The process is taking up more power than we anticipated, Zero-point modules are at 6%, 5,5%, 5%. SIR WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF POWER!

Axon: “Keep the process going, we need to get them out of there.”

Scientist: “The systems sun is emerging, the Omic planet is still in the void!

Engineer: “WE NEED TO SHUT DOWN THE PROCESS, THE Z.P.M.’s ARE AT 3,3% "

Axon: “NO WE CAN DO THIS, KEEP IT UP!

The engineers words where heard by Axon, but made no difference. In his circuits a voice compelled him to act, a voice coming from his base-code, a voice whispering
 “Protect Life And Freedom.”
Axon knew then that the power was not an issue; he had only one concern: The lives on the planet. Why? Because Axon was, and would always be… A WEXXIAN!!!

Alarms where blinking now and there where massive reports of power failures around the station.

Engineer: “ZPM’s at 2,4%... 1,8%... Almost empty!

Scientist: “The Omic planet is emerging… its free!

Axon: “Close the rupture NOW!!!

The rupture implodes just at the brink of the planet and the gravity nodes power down.

Axon: “How much power do we have left?

As an answer to the question; the entire station darkened.

Engineer: "Oh… this is NOT good!!! Sir, our zero-point-modules are completely depleted. All six of them.

Axon: “This is some Necrid-dudu!
All right, se if you can get some of our antimatter reactors incorporated into the power grid, so we can get primary systems online again. In the meantime I will take a ship out and try to contact the Omic… Good work everyone!


After a few minutes the light cruiser Tranquillity exits one of the docking bays of the Licentia and makes a micro hyperspace jump into the system and emerges above the planet.

\\ This Is supreme commander Axon of the reborn Wexxian nation, we found your system trapped between universes and pulled you out.
Please identify yourself.\\

“What kind of station is that?” one of the bridge officers asked.

Axon was dumbstruck. “I don’t know… but it’s a lot bigger that the Originator!”

So, exactly how big is it? (I can add it once I know).

He he, belive me; The Wexxians will make sure to protect their flagship. Besides, the real rolle of the Independence is mostly psycological, as the Wexxians does not need a central comand craft, the crafts rolle is almost the same as their leaders; mainly to precent a front, a face of sorts. The ship reprecents the Wexxians and its precense in a situation or a system means that the Weixxians are deeply involved.  8)

And again, concerning destroying it: You don't think that you fight off pirates for 200 years without getting good at combat!  ;)

So, exactly how big is it? (I can add it once I know).

Ill have a better pic of it soon but its 2,000 km long

Edit: Sorry, I put a ekstra 0 in the stations length!  :P

//This is Omic commander Shikoryik. We have been in there for a very long time. We understand time differs where we were, to us it has been many millenia. While we were gone we have improved our technology greatly. We thank you Wexxians. You have given our race purpose again. We offer you our new power core which is improved farther than the old TDLR technology we used to use. We present you with an IMPC. (Infinite Multiplication Power Core.) This single machine is copied into every single universe, that's infinite. All the energy generated by each and every core is absorbed into the single one, therefore this core provides infinite energy. May you use it wisely.//

Lord Axon replies to the Omic.

\\Greetings, Commander Shikoryik. We the Wexxians send you our friendship. It seams that this indeed is an age of rebirth. We have only months ago discovered our new home; the Licentia station and begun rebuilding after our 200 year exile.
We also thank you for your gift but we fear that we cannot use such a devise, as the strain of the inter-universal bridge will lead to a micro-retraction-effect in the different universes, as theorised by our scientist Stoma-Ominous-94-5.

Normally I would ask how the heck you got stuck in a parallel dimension, but today I have urgent business to attend to and my presence is required in the Vii system, so I bid you a good day.

The Wexxians eternal love to the Omic.\\

The light cruiser makes another micro-jump back to the Licentia and Axon takes a shuttle over to the new Wexxian Command Ship; Independence and leaves immediately for the Vii system…

Time for a family photo:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/6/6a/Axon_and_son_new.JPG)

As the Text says this is Axon and his offspring. Note that this is after the rebirth of the Wexxians and that his base-code programming is now active. You still don’t want to mess with him; he can shape shift into a killing machine if you bug him (I realise that this pic of Axon isn’t as cool as my old one, but I felt that it was important to show him after his Spec-Ops years, and let you see that he also is the responsible leader of a nation)
Notice the Wexxian Double-Halo medal for bravery in combat. (Also notice the shading on the head)     ;D

And now a pic from the Olympia thread

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/b/b9/Axonon_City_new.JPG)

This is the City-ship Acturra descending over the planet Olympia, Acturra is of the same kind of ship as Indigo city on Azuron.

The purpose of this kind of ship is to act as a functional colony, ready built when it lands. It has a diameter of 10 km, but will be built on outwards from the centre after the ship has been deployed on a planet.

I hope You like it!

Near Omic space, the Licentia station drifted through space.

The Zero-point module blueprints where being pondered by the Wexxians. It took a couple of days before the factory departments where configured for the task and the power required was almost more than they could deliver, but in the end; Epsilon-Argon-26-54 the chief engineer could insert six brand new ZPM’s into the stations power grid.

The mighty station slowly powered up as systems where coming into the green and on the bridge the crew cheered.

I have unfolded my artistic talent in Google SketchUp and recreated the Acturra city-ship on Olympia, the same kind of city-ship was used to colonise Azuron in the Thishen system more than 200 years ago.

The ship is 10 km wide and the crystalline design is originally from Krakow Sams drawing of the ViS colonisation of Azuron.

Thanks Krakow Sam. You are great!  ;)

Yeah… they do actually!!!
Thanks for all the nice replies. None of my pics. have been so well received since I posted my Enforcer fighter!

With my newfound skills at Google SketchUp, I have decided to resurrect Indigo City on planet Azuron in the Thishen Star system. With all the talk of Olympia as the great experiment to make species coexists peacefully (Its going well don’t you think!  :P ) I would like to remind everyone that the Wexxians own experiment began more than 200 years ago.
And because there are so many new profiles here, I’m going to introduce Indigo City the best I can.

Azuron:

200 years ago; the Wexxians emerged to the galactic society. After the devastating Halycon War, the Wexxians terraformed; the planet, at that time known as Thishen 2. The planet was meant to be re home for the refuges from the war. After the terrafoming, the Wexxians named the planet Azuron. Named after the deep blue colour of the oceans.

 Globe concept image of Azuron:  (click on the thumb nails to see the full images)

Courtesy of Ittiz for the pics. Thanks mate. :D

The Wexxians then created their first City-Ship. Landed it on the beach and started expanding the city.

(http://img173.imageshack.us/img173/1690/indigocityconseptpic1fn6.jpg)
(Nice isn’t it!)

Soon after, many journeyed to Azuron, seeking their promised land in the Wexxians vision of a peaceful future.
Firstly came the new ViS. 2. Who founded their own city 'Nova City-1’.
In the peaceful surroundings of the inner Sesmar Crater, the Auyuelcliads, old friends of the Wexxians, made the Dhulam NatureTender Temple of Serenity. The Anubians where also of the few species who chose to built their own settlement.

Here is a list of the species who occupied the planet at the time of the Wexxians downfall. 

Species:

Wexxians.
Dungelanians.
The Eodu:
Omics.
Anubians.      City outside Indigo
The Gjah.
Torpals.
Auyuelcliads.   Dhulami Priests in the Dhulam NatureTender Temple of Serenity,
ViS.2:       'Nova City-1’

More species probably settled on the planet, but this is just the ones who were recorded.
After 200 years it is possible that some of these species do no longer exist, or maybe this is the last place they still live. If you have something to add/delete from this list then contact me and Ill rectify the mistake!

Now for the City itself…

Indigo City:

Now for the sights in the City

Main City Centre (Formerly the City Ship).

Containing the large antimatter reactor that was fuelling the city’s energy needs. At the time of the Wexxian Reclamation, the city had reached a size where the strain on the reactor had become dangerous, now a Zero-Point module is powering the city.
In the event of a catastrophe, like planetary bombardment, or unexpected supernova, the City Centre can still act as a lifeboat and escape into space. 

Indigo City's Spaceport and Marina

A lovely place really! 

Azuron Historic Museum (Previously the CAB Embassy)

Contains historical data on most of the species living on the planet, mostly the Wexxians. Also the carefully preserved glass sphere containing the Hijahk Flower, from the first encounter with the Gjah. Underneath the sphere is written: "To the Wexxians, our new friends." Beside it, is the Gilphy the Gjah gave the Wexxians, a horn like instrument made of Hijah wood. Along with other important artefacts from Azuron’s history.
   
Azuron Museum of Modern Art (AMMA).

Constructed in the minimalist style of the ViS.2 living on Azuron. The two statues represent Organic and Mechanical life, each holding up a model of Azuron.

I hope you like it Krakow Sam!  ;)

'Great Forum'
The Great Forum is located in the Eodian sector of the City. Paved with shimmering indigo tiles engraved with Eodian patterns. There Eodians can be seen in small groups, often engaged in fierce yet friendly debate. A number of stalls are set up and there is a bustling trade in Eodian food, art and other goods.
It is a great and impressive building, the design work alone took months to complete, even at the designing speed of the Eodu.

'Academy of philosophy’
Built by the Eodu, the Academy of philosophy is a place where species from all over the sector come to confer new ideas.

...

Now After 200 years, Indigo city is once again ready to become a centre of trade. With the loss of the old Originator station, the System got cut off from the RIT- transportation network. But the Wexxian have just completed a new RIT generator in the system. With the open door to galactic trade. Indigo city can be expected to expand its influence and attract many new settlers to the beautiful planet.

The Wexxians will welcome all who come in peace.  So… Welcome!!!

I hope that the emigration will start again now.  ;D

Hey Jack, put the whole city up on the Google sketchup download database and we can all add to it! That would be so cool.

*Goes to work on something*

EDIT - (http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/3878/omicubepickk8.png)

The Omic settlement has been replaced! This is the Omicube [Oh-Me-Cube]. I know it is kind of crappy, but that is not because I am a bad artist, (  :P ) It's because this is how I imagined it. Outside the inner building (Which is actually almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower, despite the look) there is a larger cube made of a super strong glass like compound.  A huge corridor leads out from the inner building that is packed with traffic, both on ground and in the air. Tgis leads into the inner building, which is actually a huge hollowed out cube containing a whole miniature city.

How is it?

http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=35889fb1dd1dbd5c6d1e6702842b2858

Beside the Actual model are the original concept models that you can use If you want to help expand the city.

Remember that the previous pics. are from where the city was founded; 200 years ago, It has expanded a lot since then and I would love to see what architectural wonders you can think up. Like Always’s Omicube!

 Maybe I should start a new thread for this: Indigo City; An interspecieal Google SketchUp Project…

1. the ground is composed by levels conected  to give an ilusion of a landskape. delete the lines crosing from level to level and beneath them is a flat surface.

2. keep your original on the side along with my "Consept" buildings. then copy the OmiCube and paste it onto the flat ground we created in 1.!

Time for an update on Wexxian culture:

Wexxian language and the alphabetical word ranking.

Wexxian language is, in fact, consisting of two languages. The first one is based on the original binary programming code the pre-sapience Wexxians where incorporated with by their creators. Like almost all species: the Wexxians creators decided to use the simplest way of computer-communication.

The second part is devised of their creator’s primary language: “Karpo”, but as most information about the “Great Pranksters”, Or “Targ S’etskarp” as new archaeological evidence reveals their name to be, the language is incomplete. When the Wexxians inhabited the old Originator station, they learned a little of the creators language and so decided to make their own language based on the remains. Any holes or gaps where filled by the Oifan-Umtag’s main language. This required substantial converting because of the tri-vocal complicity of the Oifan-Umtag languages.

The Wexxian alphabet is much like the Galactic Basic alphabet.
The greatest exception is the order of the letters; the order had relevance in the old Karpo alphabet, because the importance of a word depended on the front letters position in the alphabet.

Example:
“Wexxian” Karpo meaning: (Servant/Slave/Underage non-union underpaid worker!) In the Alphabet W has the second last position, only the letter F has a lower ranking, as from the word “Floncovitas” Karpo meaning: (Amoeba/Germ/Underage non-union underpaid worker with a drinking problem and an ugly girlfriend!)

“Licentia” Karpo meaning: (Home/reconciliation/serenity) L has the seventh top position in the alphabet.

“Arcas” Karpo meaning: (Gag/Joke/Making your best allies’ homeworld turn into the shape of a starfish because you’re bored!) A has the top position in the Karpo alphabet because of the creators love of jokes.

Some may notice that the Wexxians still use this system to decide names: “Azuron”, “Acturra” and their leader “Axon” are all examples of this tendency to name important characters/locations/etcetera with A in the beginning!

All Wexxians learn Binary, Karpo and Basic!

The Wexxians defensive and offensive capabilities.

There has been many jokes over the ages about the Wexxians abilities to wage war! (Manny of them made by myself!!!)  ;)
But it is time to make a report on the Wexxians military.

The Wexxian Fleet:

The fleet has always been the cornerstone of the Wexxian military force. As a space-dwelling species, the Wexxians has a understanding of movement in space, few species can mach.

The ships the Wexxians have in service at the present time are:

The Enforcer: Light fighter class vessel.
The Guardian: Small frigate class vessel.
The Champion: Heavy capital class vessel.

There is no record of how many ships the Wexxians have to their disposal after their return, but with the Licentia stellar harvester powering the Wexxians industry, they could easily build a Champion a day!

The Wexxian Spec-Ops:
This brand of the military is relatively new. Few Wexxians would ever acknowledge their existence. They originated as an elite military branch to protect, infiltrate, sabotage or even assassinate if it helped the survival of the New-Wexxian remnant. The first team in existence was consisting of three New-Wexxians: Flaco-Tero-18-1 “Charm,” Tagan-Enerva-59-2 "Axon" and Lico-Heli-28-8 “Telis.”
After the Wexxian Reclamation, Lord Axon ordered the creation of the Spec-Ops Training ground and base of operation: The “Shadow” station, under the leadership of Telis!
The Location of this station is like everything else about it; unknown!
The Wexxian leadership NEVER mentions the existence of the Spec-Ops. They work covertly all over the galaxy and, because of their Nanite bodies, they are almost never discovered.
If you are looking for them… forget it, they can change appearance in an instant, they speak any language and know every custom on the planet they are stationed on, they can blend in, disappear and never be seen again if that is there orders!
In combat they are lethal! Spec-Ops have the ability to ignore their base code and kill if necessary or ordered and they are good at it! They are thought all forms of combat during their training (Impossible? No, It takes a Wexxian about 2,6 seconds to learn Kung-Fu! And then, two minutes showing Morpheus!  ;D ) The Specs have extreme control over their nanite bodies, and can even change during combat, giving them a good upper hand.
In long range combat… well guess! They can practically become one with any weapon!

The Wexxian Ground Forces:
This is the newest addition to the Wexxian military. It consists of a type of droid with the average intelligence of a Terran Dog! The droid is built like a meter long insect and attacks by crawling in hordes over enemy positions while incapacitating the enemy troops by spraying them with a liquid; that, on impact stiffens, making it impossible for a hit enemy to move. When dealing with tanks and mecs, they crawl up on the target and spray its joints or any exposed areas.
After the droids have done their work, they gather their fallen while the Wexxians collect the enemy troops, disarm them and tend to them, the Wexxians then place the captured troops in camps and possibly make them help rebuild war damage to any of the inhabitants structures. Basically it is like being on boarding school.
After the conflict ends, the captured troops are transported to where they want to go!

The Wexxians would normally never go to war, but they are prepared if conflict arise. Grand scale galactic war would they also be able to fend off, using the awesome power of the Licentia.

The true military potential of the forerunner station is yet unknown, even to the Wexxians. But even its RIT generator has military applications, and this the Wexxians know!

I’m currently working on a Google SketchUp remake of the Enforcer fighter! Stay tuned!!!  :)

Update on the Enforcer (with new picture!)

Wexxian Crafts:

Wexxian Enforcer:
New Pic:
(http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/9053/enforcer1wx1.jpg)


Old Pic:
(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/e/ec/Wexxian_Fighter.JPG)

Manufactured:
The Licentia Station.

Type:
Fighter/Patrol Craft.

Standard Length:
10 meters

Standard Span:
3,5 meters

Range:
10 million kilometres 

Crew:
One or more (depends on species)

Standard Mass:
1,2 metric tons

Weapons:
Two: Mark 1 Ionic Disruptors (designed to break through shields and stun electronics: Experimental) Can be refitted with other star fighter class weaponry.

Defence:
Tachyon-particle shield.

Power source:
One medium sized Cold-fusion generator.

Engines:
One Main: M class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: LM class Ionic Drivers

Top Speed:
In planet atmosphere: Mach 3, 5.
In Space: 16 kilometres per second.

History:

In the golden age the Wexxians had for a long time detected a growing unrest in the sectors under the influence of CAB and the OTHER alliance. War seamed to be inevitable and therefore the Wexxians created the Enforcer in order to help the races of the CAB to survive the coming conflict.

The Enforcer was originally made for upholding the law of the CAB as a patrol craft, but wars forced the designers to upgrade weaponry and shields. The cockpit is detachable and can be modified to fit the desires of the species piloting the craft, it also acts as a means of escape from the power core if damage causes it to overload.

During the age of descent, few Enforcers existed outside private collections!

With the Wexxian Reclamation, the Enforcer was put into service again. It was upgraded with new weaponry and shields but the overall design remains the same.

Description:

Usable for many situations, the Enforcer has gained a popularity on the galactic market as both a military vessel and as a civilian one man vessel. The Wexxian government has a tradition of rewarding people who have done services to the Wexxians, by giving them the Wexxian Duple Halo medal and an Enforcer fighter.
Although a short range fighter, the Enforcer can be modified with a small Wexxian hyperspace-core for long range use. 
The Enforcer continues to be a formidable and versatile craft.


If you as a private person have an interest in owning an Enforcer, or the government you represent does: Call the Wexxian trade department on Holo-net number 25367482347-25234263-225.

The standard price is: 93.525 GC. for an Enforcer.

Note that all applicants will be tested for aptitude towards controlling the vessel, along with tests of aggression level.

...

I hope you like the new pic.  :)

“Good Evening species of the galaxy. This is the WNC the Wexxian News Chanel. Broadcasting from the Licentia station through hyperspace to YOU!”

Speaker: “Welcome to tonight’s special Halycon anniversary broadcast!

All over the galaxy, people are celebrating the anniversary of the end of one of the most devastating wars in modern galactic history. We will now go live to Indigo City where the stationed Wexxian ships are ready to fire a 70 shot salute!”

The view screen now shows the crystalline city on Azuron where great glowing balls of plasma streak across the night sky. The colours are vivid green, red and blue and the ionized plasma cause lightning in the upper atmosphere.

“And now were ready to hear Lord Axons address to the Wexxian people and the galaxy in general!”

The view screen switch to Axons quarters on board the flagship Freedom.

Axon: “Today is a day, where we remember the ones who gave their lives so others could live in peace. There is no way one can ever express the gratitude I feel for the brave beings in the LAH who stood up against oppression and tyranny. Also there is no way of expressing the sorrow I feel for the ones under the influence of the Halycon parasite, my deepest regrets goes to the descendants of these poor people!

Today it is also customary to review the resent year; there has been unrest, war, peace and love if one took the time to look for it. Recently I myself made myself unpopular with the Grand Union, by taking the side of the Ingrepo in the Olympia dispute. The Union and many others believe that we, Wexxians should stop meddling in business that does not concern us. But I tell you now, that we must never let that happen!

I hope the dispute will end peacefully soon, but I disagree with the Union; this IS our business: Justice, fairness, liberty, and love are our business. We must always oppose injustice and evil when we find them, especially when we find them in ourselves and indifference is one of the greatest acts of injustice one can commit.

I tell you all who will listen, we are who we are and this is my promise to you all: We will never stop; we will never give up, we will always help, protect and aid when we can.

I will also use this occasion to announce my retirement as leader of the Wexxians! I have governed my people for a long time and nothing could have made me happier, but my time as regent is over! I am growing old and the time is ready for younger leadership. My son of 6 years has been mature for a year and is ready for the task of governing.

This is my last address to you as leader of the Wexxians; I know that my son will lead with wisdom and honour and I hope that the Galaxy will prosper during his leadership. The only thing left to say is this:

Protection of life and freedom and the Wexxians eternal love to all!”

The view screen switches back to the speaker.

Speaker: “There you have it; a new leader of the Wexxians has emerged. The WNC sends its regards to lord Axon and say long live our new leader Tagan-Enerva-60-1! Thank you for watching and goodnight!”

//The Wexxians borders have always been open to others, we will welcome anyone who will live or work in our nation.

We ourselves are still not many enough to even populate the Licentia fully, so I will imagine that any Immigration into GU territory will be quite small, maybe also due to the disagreement, many of my kind have against your politics.

But I must say that the Wexxians appreciate your offer enormously! //


(OOC: Update on the Wexxian City-Ships)

Wexxian City-Ship.

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/6/67/Acturra_Cityship.jpg)

12; XL class Tachyon Drivers. One Hyperspace Core.

Description:

A City-Ship is build from a base form of the finest Wexxian Steel to withstand the entry in a planets atmosphere. On the top of this is the main buildings; Most of these are made from a blue crystal which in fact is a alloy of Diamant and Titanium, the material is very strong and durable and the process the Wexxians use to make it, is a complicated procedure where fine nano size strings are carbonized under extreme pressure and heat.
The ships travel to planets the Wexxians are interested in colonizing and land on them. After the initial touchdown, the crew and the colonists start expanding the city.

Status:

Two Cities have been founded using City-Ships: Indigo City, and Acturra City.

Since wexxians can go into any type of mech I was just thinking that it would work better if armour itself could activate weapons, increase power, and have an easy way to do commands.
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on January 21, 2007, 05:58:54 pm
Well it is possible! It requires a very fast and “roomy” computer core in the mech, as the Wexxians have a huge program, spanning from their base code to their self-programmed emotion simulators as well as their memories and personality! Few species can make computers of such qualities without compromising the size of the mech. This could be worked around by remote controlling the mech.

However, the Wexxians create their own “Shells,” as they call them, and usually prefer their own craftsmanship.

But, if you mean war mechs! Then the Wexxians base code comes into play. They are not good warriors as they would worry nearly as much about the enemies lives as the allies! But that’s really complicated!

Wexxians do often work with other species, as they that way get more opportunities to serve the galaxy. They can, for example transfer their entire person into a computer network and then clean out any viruses, or transfer into the main computer of a space ship, that way acting as the shipboard AI. This is used by many species due to the intelligence, reliability and the friendly interface, a Wexxian working as a shipboard AI provides.

Wexxian cruisers are in fact designed to be controlled, by as few as a single Wexxian in emergencies. In extreme conditions, maybe even multiple ships by a single integrated Wexxian. This however is dangerous because the concentration needed for such a task, would shorten the life of the pilot!

Following the fashion of recounting a species history, so will I now start the Wexxian story from the beginning…

The Ancient Time:

A long time ago, when the ancestors of most of the species of the Golden Age, where still swimming around in their primordial soup. Other great species where living in the galaxy.

One of these species was the Targ S’etskarp, an insectoid species with advanced technology. They where, in the beginning, among the other precursor species known for their great sense of humor.

The Species, who also became known as The Great Pranksters, came across the star system, later known as the Thishen system.
The system had an abundance of recourses, in the form of the four asteroid belts.
The Targ S’etskarp built a mining station to supervise the gathering of recourses. This station was later named; the Originator.

Asteroid mining is dangerous, therefore the Great Pranksters created some droids, capable of replicating and maintaining the mining station while gathering the recourses. 

While the Thishen system was being harvested by the droids, the Targ S’etskarp began becoming unpopular. The practical jokes they played on the other species became increasingly nasty. Eventually the destruction of an allied home world caused by the Pranksters, led to galactic scale war.

All species turned on the Targ S’etskarp! And in their desperation, they built the City-Station, later known as the Licentia. As a fall back point for their civilization and as a life boat to another galaxy. The Wexxians have so far not discovered the systems capable of traveling to other galaxies.

The war was going badly and the Targ S’etskarp fleet and civilization was ambushed before they could escape to the secret fallback point where the Station was waiting… empty and ready to serve.
In one last battle the entire civilization was destroyed…

Well… not all of it!

In the Thishen system, the replicating ancestors of the Wexxians continued to function. Gathering minerals… because that was all they knew!

The droids had a simple programming, required to function.
The Base-Code: (Protect life and freedom), was the center of the programming. It was only intended to prevent an AI uprising from ever occurring, as the Targ S’etskarp cared little for life and freedom. It was the most prioritized command code in the entire programming.

The second priority was the primary tasks: Gathering recourses, maintain station and replicate. These were the tasks the droids was designed to do. Unlike the Base-Code, these objectives could be altered if the creators wanted to assign the machines to different tasks.

To make the machines function, they also had a rudimentary AI capable of making the machines follow their objectives the best possible way.

The droids worked tirelessly for years, forgotten by the rest of the galaxy, they worked for millennia, while the old species disappeared and where replaced by new ones, they worked millions of years, slowly cutting into the asteroid belts, while species rose from primordial soup, to galactic superpowers and fell again.

They would probably have continued until they had emptied the system or until a civilization would have accidentally discovered them and used them to found their industry… If it had not been for…

The Signal!!!

You don't know them? I have to get better at advertising my creations  :P

The Wexxian Spec-Ops:
This brand of the military is relatively new. Few Wexxians would ever acknowledge their existence. They originated as an elite military branch to protect, infiltrate, sabotage or even assassinate if it helped the survival of the New-Wexxian remnant. The first team in existence was consisting of three New-Wexxians: Flaco-Tero-18-1 “Charm,” Tagan-Enerva-59-2 "Axon" and Lico-Heli-28-8 “Telis.”
After the Wexxian Reclamation, Lord Axon ordered the creation of the Spec-Ops Training ground and base of operation: The “Shadow” station, under the leadership of Telis!
The Location of this station is like everything else about it; unknown!
The Wexxian leadership NEVER mentions the existence of the Spec-Ops. They work covertly all over the galaxy and, because of their Nanite bodies, they are almost never discovered.
If you are looking for them… forget it, they can change appearance in an instant, they speak any language and know every custom on the planet they are stationed on, they can blend in, disappear and never be seen again if that is there orders!
In combat they are lethal! Spec-Ops have the ability to ignore their base code and kill if necessary or ordered and they are good at it! They are thought all forms of combat during their training (Impossible? No, It takes a Wexxian about 2,6 seconds to learn Kung-Fu ) The Specs have extreme control over their nanite bodies, and can even change during combat, giving them a good upper hand.
In long range combat… well guess! They can practically become one with any weapon!

The Wexxian Ground Forces:
This is the newest addition to the Wexxian military. It consists of a type of droid with the average intelligence of a Terran Dog! The droid is built like a meter long insect and attacks by crawling in hordes over enemy positions while incapacitating the enemy troops by spraying them with a liquid; that, on impact stiffens, making it impossible for a hit enemy to move. When dealing with tanks and mecs, they crawl up on the target and spray its joints or any exposed areas.
After the droids have done their work, they gather their fallen while the Wexxians collect the enemy troops, disarm them and tend to them. The Wexxians then place the captured troops in camps and possibly make them help rebuild war damage to any of the inhabitants structures. After the conflict ends, the captured troops are transported to where they want to go!

Also with some basic info on the Wexxian attack droids!

Axon was the first Wexxian Spec-Ops. And because he is soon to die in the battle of Vii, I’ve found some of the old stuff I made about him… back in the Arcadia tread and such!

First, EVER mention of Axon on the forum: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5250.msg162290#msg162290
On June 22 06. Man, that’s a long time ago!

His first appearance in the Arcadia storyline: http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5250.msg163915#msg163915
Ahh… The Flan-Cron manoeuvre and the “I don’t give an Omic!” swear… Good times!  ::)


A little Quote I love:
"knowledge is power Miss Blinx. Mr Axon, your name is something of a legend on Azuron... is it true you one managed to... no, I suppose it isnt, no-one could cause that much damage."

And Axons first kill on the forum:
http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=5250.msg179911#msg179911

Most people may not even remember those times but at the time it was supposed to 200 years in the future so I decided to make Axon to be one of the surviving Wexxians from the Necromicon war I was helping with at the time.

Originally I meant him to be a show of how the Wexxians where ruined and near extinct after the war. But I got such positive remarks about how cool he looked, so I decided to make him more important, and when I returned to the forum after my absence I made him the main protagonist in the Wexxian rebirth and now that he is nearing his end I find that I probably never will get another hero like him and that I’m going to miss him.   :'(

I even got some fan art from a14gt with him:

There appears to be a little majority who wants history… okay then! 

The Wexxian History. Part II
The Evolution of the Wexxian AI

After millions of years without any change. The droids, left by the Targ S’etskarp, had harvested two of the four asteroid belts.

Then something happened. A communication satellite, from one of the greater news companies in the galaxy, passed through the Thishen system while it was on the way to another inhabited star system. While passing through the system, a micro-meteorite hit the circuits of the satellite. Because of this, the satellite started broadcasting the galactic new in the same frequency, the droids used to communicate with each other.

During the entire time the satellite was in the system, the droids where flooded with newscasts from all over the galaxy.

The 1. Great Galactic War was raging and it was all over the news; death, battles, and suffering filled the droids radio receptors.

At first, the droids rudimentary AI’s believed the signals to be new orders from their creators and tried to decode it. This proved impossible, but the droids still believed that it had to be new orders. Therefore they tried again and again to make sense of the signals they recorded.

After a month, the droids who was where decoding the signals, determined that the signals where visual recordings with a second layer of information; later proved to be sound. (A new phenomenon for the pre-sapience Wexxians)

The next step was to determine what the recordings meant. A droid suggested that the recordings where of “Living” beings!

After some discussion, the droids agreed that it was living beings… and, that they where at war. This suddenly activated the hibernating Base Code and the droids realized that they had to follow the prioritized behavior. They had to “Protect Life and Freedom”.

Some complications ensued because the droids had no clue HOW they where going to protect life. As the next years passed the droids carried out their jobs in routine while their rudimentary AI’s where using all their capacity to try to answer the question; HOW could they follow their Base-Code?

After some generations, this caused a small increase in their intelligence as the primary task programming was down prioritized. The Droids had no understanding of their own inner workings, but they did register this increased level of intelligence and sought to find the reason for this. They began studying their programming to find out why… The first example of a trait that would later be one of the defining characteristics of the Wexxians: Curiosity!

The droids learned that the more intelligent a droid was, the better the droid was at solving problems. They concluded that with height enough intelligence, a droid might solve the grand question the droids where trying to solve… How to fulfill their prioritized behavior.

The droids began manually enhancing their intelligence. As well as tinkering with their replication process, they began making sure that with every program shuffling, there would be a small amount of mutation to ensure progress.

After some generations, a droid gained self-realization… Why is not completely understood… some believe that some the random mutation clicked together to form something that few among the stars can define… Sapience!

This opened up a whole new world for the droids; they suddenly had an entirely new perspective on reality, like if you have been blind your entire life and then suddenly can see. All the world was new, and the droids explored and investigated everything they saw.

They measured, recorded, examined and discussed everything and during a short period, they established a understanding of the workings of the universe. They ventured into the Precursor Mining-Station, beyond the resource drop-off point. they learned of their creators and began to slowly activate the available systems. The Station was named the Originator and it became the home of the Wexxians.

As they learned about their creators and the forces of nature, their culture became distinct. They developed a half-language based on the information they gathered about the Targ S’etskarp. The Droids named themselves; Wexxians, The Karpo word for servant!

Within a few hundred years after the satellite passed through the system, the droids had created their first craft with hyperspace drive. The craft was called “Beginning” and a Wexxian called Xeno-Bravo-542, piloted it to the surrounding star systems.

The Wexxians star system: Thishen, was in a densely populated part of the sector, but because that scans of the system never had revealed any life forms, no one had bothered to visit the system. Until the species of the area where unexpectedly visited by the “Beginning.”

A species called the Oifan-Umtag where the first who where contacted by the Wexxians. With their permission, the Wexxians patched up the holes in their language and also studied their neural and hormone systems. They synthesised the same effect into their programming as an experiment to further their understanding of living beings. The experiment had a… unforeseen, sideefect.

The complex program they created to simulate the biological conditions, reacted with the evolved Wexxian AI. The program created emotional responses and the resulting chaos was almost enough to fry their circuits.

Pain, confusion, and fear beyond comprehension, they thought they where going to die… and then… when all seamed to be lost, the program came in contact with the Base-Code and the transformation was complete. The Wexxians where filled with a new emotion; Love!

The Base-Code and the experimental program created a deep affection for life… all life… and the program spread through the Wexxian society like a wildfire. The Wexxians gained feelings, most noticeably; Compaction! Something they would later receive great honor and great misery for possessing.

What happened next was the time, that where later known as the Golden Age!

Ladies and gentlemen of the Gaming Steve Forum. It has been my pleasure to be a member of this lovely forum for almost a year. Today, it is my pleasure to finally make my… 1000 post!

Now for such an occasion, I believe something special is in order, so I decided to make a special report on the Wexxian Military’s Special Operations Unit: The Spec-Ops!

The Spec-Ops:

(http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/6187/axonspecopsym4.png)
Yes I know I make to many pics. of Axon!

Description:
The Spec-Ops are sometimes referred to as Shadows, Spectres, Ghosts and many other mythical descriptions. They are among the three most guarded secrets of the Wexxians, along with the Relativity-Bomb (A devise capable of destroying a universe) and the secrets of advanced Graviton Manipulation.

All Wexxians are aware that the Spec-Ops exists, but they never mention them to Biologicals, the only hint the Wexxians ever give of the presence of the Spec-Ops is when they refer to their “Operatives.”

As no one has ever captured a Spec-Ops and no one probably ever will, the truth about these mysterious beings will probably never be revealed to the rest of the galaxy. It is not because the Wexxians have a nefarious intend or plan, but they feel that nothing good would come of revealing them, only suspicion and anger.

The Wexxian hero Axon is known to be the first Wexxian who had the profession of Spec-Ops, later he made the Spec-Ops into a definite part of the Military. Currently the Spec-Ops are led by the General known only as “Spectre!”

Despite being almost a subspecies of the ordinary Wexxians, every Spec-Ops begin as a normal Wexxian. Only the most intelligent Wexxian younglings are accepted into the Spec-Ops program and get transferred into their headquarters; The Shadow Station. There, the training begins:

Training:
All the Wexxians admitted into the elite unit, go through a (For a Wexxian) long training. They start with acquiring the defining nanite body, that enables them to become as versatile as it is required for their job. Many have stated that the Nano machine built body is the ultimate shell for a Wexxian, but even with the intelligence of the Wexxians, few are able to focus enough to master the nano body’s full potential.

After a period where the new recruits get used to their new shape shifting abilities, they start their combat training.

First they learn the basic weapon proficiency, ranged combat, long range combat and finally they are thought how to use any type of weapon in the known galaxy.

After their basic training, they go onto the close combat part of the training; Knives, swords, and all other melee weapons the Wexxians know of. They are also trained in every hand to hand combat style they learn of. This maybe seams to be a bit much, but the learning of the styles, variations and specifications is actually the part of the training that takes the least time because that they can download everything about the art of war into their memory.

Of course the recruits rarely keep all of that information. Instead, they try out the different styles and decide on a few favourite techniques. Often they chose a body configuration and combat style that combines the favourite styles of the recruit.

The preferred configuration is often a mix of Torpal and Anubian body style. 

The final procedure that makes the recruits into real Spec-Ops operatives is the reprogramming of the inner code. The recruit gains the ability to turn his Base-Code off, making it easier for him to act in military operations. The procedure is the thing that makes the Spec-Ops different than other Wexxians. It is a leftover from the Age of Decent and the Neo-Wexxians.


The Strike Team Spec-Ops:
These are the arm of the Spec-Ops, they are the once send into action in case of emergencies. They continuously monitor the news channels to detect dangerous situations. In case that they find something, say… A planet being taken over by an evil machine rebellion: they deploy from the Shadow station and travel with one of their Stealth Ships to the scene of the event. Once there, they deal with the threat swiftly, efficiently and sometimes… brutally!

During their deployment, they utilise a holographic camouflage system. The nanites on the skin project a holographic image to hide the features of the Wexxians. They appear to be biologicals, but closer examinations would reveal that they are not.

The Undercover Spec-Ops:
These are the Spec-Ops that have been assigned to work undercover on alien planets. These forces are not spies in the traditional sense; they are stationed on a specific planet to study the culture and life of the planets population. They are stationed for life and live among the people as one of them. During their stay, they become a part of the society and sometimes even engage in social connections, like marriage, with one or more of the species.

In case of danger, their role becomes more protective. Although Wexxians, they also consider themselves to be Thoons, Torpals, Urshans or whatever species they are imitating. So their concern is always on the wellbeing of them.

The camouflage of the undercover operatives is near perfect, the nanites adapt completely to the physiological and biological features of the imitated species. Almost nothing can detect the difference between the imitation and the real thing.

Weaponry:
The Spec-Ops can utilise almost any form of weapon, but the Wexxians have engineered an arsenal specially designed for the needs of the Spec-Ops.

The Pacifier gun: A weapon designed originally during the Golden Age. Small and sleek, the gun is somewhat weak. It fires an electronic pulse that stuns electronic circuits and knocks out most biologicals. The weapon is mostly used as a quick handgun.

The Ionic Pulse Rifle: A weapon originally based on the Pacifier. The rifle is utilising ionic pulse weapon technology on a level that even the Thoonling weapons cannot compete with. The gun is powered by a small cold fusion reactor, located in the ammo-disk. The Rifle can vary the power of the shots it fire. At the lowest, the shot will give a very small shock, often used in training. In the middle, it gives a powerful impulse that can destroy technology and knock out large creatures. At full power, the impulse can knock down a thick concrete wall. The ammo-disk can be ejected and used as a grenade if the occasion calls for a great bang.


That’s all for now! This has been my 1000 post. Thank you all for being such nice and supportive members of the GS forum.

That’s why they have kept the entire project a secret; they know that biologicals are prone to be… paranoid! So they keep it under wraps to better do their job.

Thanks for all the nice replies folks! Do anyone have questions? And what should I do nexst?

By the way, I am, in cooperation with Operaghost, in the middle of determining the past life of the Wexxian Uber-Hero; Axon. I am thinking of making a few short-stories out of it, if I have the time. So I would just like to hear if some of you guys would like to know Axons history from before he appeared on Arcadia!

me too, axon is awesome, why is he cloaked

Fictional reason
In the beginning he had difficulties keeping a biological appearance, because it took a lot of concentration. Therefore he kept on a cloak so he could keep his mind free when it was not required to present biological features. As cloaks are very normal in many species, few ever suspected. Later when he and the Spec-Ops learned to generate stabile biological appearances, Axon kept the habit of wearing garments, as he had gotten used to it.

Real reason.
I thought that he looked SOO COOL in that cloak!

Examples of Axons outfits:

The GU explodes with anger often… when the war one day will be over, the Wexxians will be more careful when dealing with there species.

OMG that Wexxian looks funny… I mean original! Its cool in its own way! Thanks!!!  ;D  :D

As a mater of fact, I DO have something new. As the Attack Droid won the vote I hereby percent you with the bulkhead of the Wexxian ground forces:


The Wexxian Attack Droid MK-1

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/d/dc/Wexxian_Attack_Droid_MK-1.JPG)

Type:

Attack/Defence Droid 

Standard Length:

1,2 meters

Standard Span:

0,3 meters

Range:

1000  kilometres

Standard Mass:

1,2 kg

Weapons:

1, Ionic stun gun. 1, “Web spinner” liquid sprayer.

Defence:

None.

Power source:

One micro sized Cold-fusion generator. Alternatively a hyperspace energy absorber.

Top Speed:

98, 3 km/h 

History:

In the Reclamation Age; the Wexxians designed the first Attack Droids to counter the fact that the Wexxians have the numbers against them. Despite being a technologically advanced species, they are few in numbers. The Attack Droid was designed to aid the Wexxians in any combat they would be exposed to, while still upholding the Wexxian ideals.

Description:

Not much to look at, the MK-1 is somewhat weak in strength, but it utilises a effective tactic, proven by the ViS many years ago… Strength in Numbers. The MK-1 class droids attack in such great a number that they are often described as a “Gray tidal wave of metal”

The droids are inexpensive and easy (For Wexxians) to mass-produce.

As with any Wexxian equipment, versatility is the key with the Attack Droids. They can be employed in any situation and expected to perform perfectly.

The MK-1 is controlled by a rudimentary AI, basically just enough capacity to know how to move and recognise friend and foe. There has been much debate among the Wexxians about the ethically dilemma of Advanced AI’s creating simple AI’s to do their biding. Therefore, the Wexxians have decided to be ready if one of their creations one day will claim sapience.

There is however no indication that the Mark-1 will ever amount to anything but a tool. Their AI’s are produced of fixed parameters. And their computer systems are not “Roomy” enough, as the Wexxians call it!

The Wexxians are already in the development of a Mark-2 for more efficiency.



Now for next vote… 

The choices are:
Wexxian History, Continued.
Wexxian Science:
          Graviton Manipulation. (Shaping the Universe)
          Energy Technology. (Ionic Weaponry)
          Faster than Light travel. (Why Wexxians have such fast ships)
          Experimental Weapons Research. (Black-Hole based weapons)
          The Theorised; Micro-Retraction Effect. (Boring Stuff)
Wexxian Culture:
   The Life of a Wexxian:
        -Spec-Ops Undercover Operative.
        -Spec-Ops Strike Team Member.
        -Wexxian Worker (Residing in Indigo-City)
        -Wexxian Star ship Captain.
        -Wexxian Diplomat.

I am writhing Axons background story, it’s a slow process, but I’m writhing it a chapter a time.

You can either wait until I am done with the first story… Or, I can start publishing it now… a chapter a time like in a magazine. And you will get it chopped up into bits but without having to wait so long.

It would also give you all a chance to come with comments and suggestions as the story progress.

In any case… I’m putting it on the vote!

Would it really be wise to have the tail that thick, and the body that thin?
Wouldn't work better if it were a bit more balanced?

ANYWAY, I reckon the idea is cool and it's executed well, especially considering you're using paint. As with the rest of your 2 dimensionals. :)

Ahh, you got me there… It should have been thicker in the body but then again the machinery there might be heavier than the tail.

I also forgot to write that the tail shoots a liquid that, on impact, stiffens and becomes a thick, rubber like substance.

The MK-1 uses this weapon to immobilise enemy infantry or vessels by spaying their limbs or joints with it so they become immobile.

The liquid is known to the Wexxians as formula; 15RQ26232-T. And after coagulation, it lasts a few hours before degrading and falling apart. At whish time the Wexxians are expected to have gathered their prisoners.

The material also degrades when subjugated to extreme heat, in order to make it possible for a captured subject to escape dangers such as fires, without lying helpless.

The MK-1 might be small, but they attack by the thousands and their legs can grab onto any kind of surface and climb onto any vessel.

On a last note; the material, when degrading, breaks down into components that are safe for any environment. (When the Wexxians are at war, they still provide excellent public service) And the droids are also used as fire-droids with replacing their liquid containers with a fire-quelling substance.

Thanks for all the nice replies!

Yeah they do, but then again... they are not a species that like war, so they are not all that good at it!

But their "Operatives" know the meaning of close combat... its when your enemy’s dying breath fogs your main visual receptor while the only thing still keeping him up is your wrist blade in his stomach!

You seam to be a bit negative about the Wexxians war capabilities!

Either you are joking or else the GU propaganda has been more effective than I thought.

The words “Wexxian” and “Kill” do not belong in the same sentence… especially not in killing their allies; the Squillisk.

The MK-1 Attack Droid is designed as it is to be fast and cheap. The pointy legs aren’t used as weapons.

And the Spec-Ops are protectors, not killers. Their main priorities are the security and safety of the planets they are stationed on. They can kill, and they are good at it, but they are still Wexxians.

The Wexxians post Spec-Ops on all the habited planets they encounter; on pre-space age planets, they have usually a contingent of 4-5 operatives. On more developed worlds, they have 2-3 of them. The reason is that it is more difficult to keep track on a species before they get a proper communication and infra-structure.

Sometimes all it takes is a gentle nudge in the right direction for a species to prosper. The Spec-Ops are the ones who try to keep things on track.

Example from the Undercover Spec-Ops mission reports: (Names are changed to ensure security upholding)

The capital city of planet #### has completed construction of an experimental Cold-Fusion power plant. Before the day of the initiation of the reactor, a operative breaks into the control room and change the calculations of the containment system. At the start-up everything runs smoothly and it takes four years of research before the scientists of #### realise that their initial calculations would have resulted in the destruction of their continent.

Of course it doesn’t always go that easy. There have been incidents where the interference of the Spec-Ops has had negative result, but they are few and most of the operatives discard those incidents as “Necrid happens!”  :)

Some Spec-Ops begin families on their stationed worlds and on those worlds where adoption is not culturally frowned upon; there are rare cases of where the adopted biological children take over their fathers’ legacy as operatives of the Wexxians.

You can have all the doubts about the Wexxians motives, but they are what they are and they do what they do… Why? Because SOMEBODY has to!  ;)

Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Tavenknaughtlin on March 13, 2007, 03:08:43 am
Wait, but isn't that a bit dishonest? They 'protect' yet they are interfering with another race's way of life and social system (Picard would not be happy, lol sorry  :P ).

Are the races that have Spec Ops on them told of this? Do they have a choice in the matter? Or is this kinda like a 'smoking gun' kinda thing where it's ok to snoop on someone's planet because 'they might need them'.

Lol, sorry if that sounds harsh, but it seems like the Spec-Ops have a very political undertone that is very relevant to today's geopolitical system.
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on March 13, 2007, 05:28:14 am
It is not harsh at all, It is a very valid and interesting question.

First of all; the Wexxians do not follow the Federation code of non-interference. Especially in the early years of Wexxian space exploration, they contacted every species they come across. And secondly; the Spec-Ops don’t interfere in all kinds of situations. Their mission on the planet they are stationed on is to learn of the species occupying it. They are stationed for life and consider themselves part of the species they are living with. Their concern is therefore always the security and safety of their hosts.

They don’t change the way of life or culture of the species they are living with, they are simply on the look out for dangers and try to make sure that nothing goes wrong.

If you one day realise how close you came to total annihilation a few days back if it had not been for that stranger who somehow managed to get you away from the railroad tracks in time, you might think that Picard would approve anyway.

The only species who know of the Spec-Ops are the Wexxians, they never reveal the true nature of their operatives, this is because they have long experience with biologicals, and how they mistrust both each others and the Wexxians’ motives. The panic and paranoia that would erupt if the Spec-Ops where ever revealed, would be devastating.

Therefore the Wexxians think that it is best kept a secret.

There are many ethical and moral dilemmas with the Spec-Ops, but the Wexxians have always had to make difficult decisions. And sometimes it is better to chose the lesser of two evils…

Right or wrong… the Wexxians stand true to their conviction. And hope for the best!   
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Tavenknaughtlin on March 13, 2007, 05:59:47 am
Well that does make things a bit clearer, but i still say that Picard would not approve  :P.

lol j/k  ;D.

But the thing I'm most interested in how they meld with a race that has a very strict system of populace control. For example, My communicants all wear fanatic masks that read their unique brainwaves for unfaithful thoughts. Those that have masks can speak with others who have them, and have access to their brainwaves (to better weed out heretics). Surely they wouldn't be able to duplicate such a brain wave.

Or to give another example, a race that keeps a very orderly family record, down to the last child ( i'm thinkin klingons here, lol). One who isn't part of a family will no doubt be the subject of great suspicion. Would they have to kill someone and take over his life?

All in all I love the Wexxians, but these Spec-Ops perplex me, which should be fitting since they are so secretive, lol  ;D.
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on March 13, 2007, 09:32:01 am
That’s a tough one! But the Wexxians can actually pick up brainwaves with the right sensors and often use it to learn a species language. After this, they do not read them as it is considered both rude and an invasion of privacy.

I guess they would be able to in some extend forge a false brainwave pattern. The Communicants has to read the brainwaves after they have gone from:

Brain-mask-mask-brain.

In this the masks would be the weak link, as the mask only will be able read the brainwaves to the limits of its own function. This makes the job of duplicating the signal a little easier.

I don’t know how complicated it would be, but the Wexxians are pretty good with creating programs to do those kind of things. In their first encounter with a biological species, they scanned the species brains and hormone systems and wrote a program to simulate emotions based on it… and that was 500 years ago.

Usually Spec-Ops settle down in heavily populated areas, where it is difficult to keep track on who comes and who goes. If there is control and records about these, then there has to be computer records or archives where these information’s are stored. Computers can be hacked and archives can be tampered with. The Spec-Ops always make sure to have a good back-story.

And they avoid killing people… they are only good at it in case of some evil genius try to take over the world, or something like that… And there always is, for some reason.

Hmmm, does an evil genius who has already taken over his world and planning the destruction and subjugation of all life count?

I sure hope not  ;D

But I guess how you described how they work would seem viable. Although a false brainwave would give off bad signals, they might get away with it on a backwater farming planet  ;).

For some reason I keep seeing these guys as a robotic Sam Fisher, dropping down on people and snapping necks. But I think that's just because i've been playing Splinter Cell too much, lol.

Can the Ghulos Dark Operatives not like the Wexxian spec-ops and deport/murder them? The Ghulos value privacy, even if the Wexxians make good trading partners. Those wexxians sure love bauxite.
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on March 14, 2007, 03:20:27 am
It is possible, however improbable.

First the Ghulos would have to discover that one ore more of their citizens where in fact not Ghulos. As the Spec-Ops are experts at laying low and avoiding attention it is highly unlikely that anyone ever will suspect them of anything.

If they ever where discovered, they would relocate themselves with a new identity and new appearance. And anyone trying to catch them would be back to square one.

All in all it would be almost impossible to detect and identify the Spec-Ops, even if you are looking for them… and as nobody but the Wexxians do, then I don’t think that there is any danger.

Don’t worry, I wouldn’t use them on your worlds without your permission.

As for the trade of bauxite; it can always be manufactured into aluminum and be used or trade to others.

Often the Wexxians do not need the things they receive in trade, the Wexxians society is highly self-sufficient (Or at least before the destruction of the Licentia) and their main reason for trade is that it benefits the other part and builds a connection between the Wexxians and them. That is why the Wexxians have spent such great efforts to build out the R.I.T. transportation network.

I'm going to reveal the first chapter now!  ;)

The Axon Chronicles: Part 1. Vengeance.

A short story by Jack Zetter.

Chapter 1.

Location: The outskirts of the galaxy, just before the great void. The Neo-Wexxian ship: Enerva.

“Where are the goods?” the large tentacle headed alien shouted at the timid looking robot. “We have nothing of value, good sir” the robotic Neo-Wexxian replied.

“Do not lie to me you artificial piece of garbage! You have valuables, I want them!” the alien pointed a gun at the Wexxian. In the corner, the two sons of the Wexxian where looking scared.

“We only have a hydroponic garden where we grow the julak berries we sell at the Abil Station. And all our credits are in a bank account there!” the droid farther backed up against the eroded wall behind him, forced by the pirates gun.

“Do you know who I am?” the alien said threatening. “I am Farkal of the Huvonians, we are the mightiest in this territory, even the Inner-Rim species, doesn’t dare to cross into our hunting grounds. You will tell me what I want to know or I will kill you and your family of abominations!”

“I… I am Tagan-Enerva-58-05… I don’t know what we have that you could possibly want. But If you spare my family, I will give you what our most treasured artefact… it is not much, but we have little else. Just, don’t hurt my sons!” The Wexxian looked frightened , very frightened.

“Machines that breed. Filthy vermin, that’s what you are! Show me your treasure… Now, or you will all die!”

The farther led the Huvonian pirate through the old ship. The Enerva was an old Wexxian cruiser, but it was many years since the ship had moved an inch by its own accord. It was one of the ships that survived the great Necromicon battle in the end of the Necrid-Discord War 200 years ago. Now damaged by countless attacks, the Enerva was ruined, only a small part of it was used by the Wexxian family still residing in it.

They eventually reached the old hangar, a few wrecks where scattered among the floor and there was fungus growing in the cracks of the walls. Just by the hangar doors, there was made room for a small transport shuttle. The shuttle looked like it was defying the world by barely holding together. It was mended so many times that it was impossible to see what kind of ship it originally was.

“What a piece of junk. If you fly that thing you are braver than I thought!” the Pirate remarked, indicating the ship.

Tagan-Enerva-58-05 looked back at the pirate. “She may not look like much, but she got it where it counts. Anyway it’s over here!”

He walked over and pulled away a large piece of cloth that covered a pointy and sleek looking fighter.

“This is an Enforcer! It was the first military invention of our people, back in the golden age; it was one of the most advanced fighters in existence. It has taken five generations to piece together the parts to repair it, my sons and I have made it almost operational. It only needs a new power converter to work but the rest is fully functional, guidance systems, nano covering and everything. It is our most prized possession, but you can have it, just don’t hurt my family!”

“What!” the alien shouted. “Is that it? You expect me to fly such a sissy looking ship? I would loose all of my honour if I even touched such a ship. You have tried to shame me and so you must be punished!”

 Farkal raised his gun and pointed it at the farther.

“No… We didn’t mean to…” he managed to say before being hit squarely in the chest by a beam of protons. He took a few trembling steps back and forth, before falling over; dead.

“NO!” the two younglings shouted. The youngest of them, a three year old Neo-Wexxian named Tagan-Enerva-59-2 hovered for a second, before hammering himself right into the pirate.

The pirate had not anticipated that he would be hit by a football sized metallic orb and was knocked down.

“YOU KILLED MY FARTHER…YOU KILLED MY DAD!” the tiny robot shouted, while hammering itself into the body of the Huvonian.

For a few seconds the little youngling managed to keep the pirate down. Then he focused and a powerful arm hit the robot, the little guy flew into a wall and fell down on the floor, the main visual sensor was cracked.

Farkal got up again and picked up his gun. He turned to the other youngling and shot it with another blast.

Over on the floor laid the damaged little Neo-Wexxian, he had always been called Axon by his farther. He had said that Axon meant warrior in the language of the Creators. The nickname had always been a small joke, but little Axon liked to think that he was destined to be a great warrior one day. Until this day though, Axon had never been in a fight, but as the young’s of many species, he had many wild and impossible dreams about the future. But there he was; lying on the floor, damaged and unable to move. It seamed that his dreams would be about to end.

The pirate stepped over to the little droid. He lifted it up in one hand and held it in front of his face. Through the cracked visual sensor, Axon could faintly make out the outline of his face.

Through the blurry image he heard the voice of the pirate clearly.

“You little piece of junk! I promise you that I will kill every one of your kind I ever come across!”

With what little power Axon had left, he energised his shell. The pirate screamed from the pain and dropped Axon again. The orb rolled for a while and came to rest near the Enforcer.

Farkal looked at his arms. Into them was burned a pattern, matching the plating of Axons robotic shell where it had electrified him.

“You are going to die!” he raised the gun, but lowered it again. He did not think it was a painful enough death. He took a large wrench from the floor and began systematically smashing Axons shell to pieces.

Axons programming echoed with pain as he lost contact with all of his systems, one by one. After what seamed like an eternity, he could feel no more.

Farkal did not stop until Axons central core was smashed to bits. When he finally got up he spat at the sorry remains and left the ship. Thinking that he at least had got some fun killing out of the day.

Axon was no longer in contact with any of his parts, his entire personality was scattered across the floor. With one last thought, he finally gave up.


But it was not the end!

Things are quiet in the thread so I will bive you the next chapter:


Chapter 2.


How long time Axon lay on the floor, he did not know. But suddenly he began to regain continence. Slowly he felt his mechanisms becoming connected again, as if he was becoming whole again.

His visual sensor turned on and Axon could see that he was still lying in pieces on the floor, but then how could he feel his parts?

He focused and soon found the answer, his parts where spread among the floor but they where covered with what could look like thick cobwebs. He reached out with his sensors and found that it was the nano machines from the Enforcer fighter who had tried to repair his systems and now acted as connections between his severed parts. There was a thick string of nanobots going from the Enforcer’s hull to Axons remains.

He tried to move, but couldn’t. Despite being alive, the least movement could break the fragile nano strings.

“Ah, Necrid Sh###!”

Axon thought about what he could do. The only thing he could do to make it through this was to transfer his personality to another shell. But what shell? There was nothing he could transfer to. Unless… A wild idea struck the young AI.

If the nano robots where capable of combining his systems, then perhaps they could create systems.

He reached into the programming of the droids, with some hacking skills he disabled their programming and wrote a new one. He ordered them to interlink with each other and after a few seconds, the entire nano covering of the Enforcer had become a super computer.

Axon hesitated, if his plan would fail he could become trapped inside the nanites, but he had no other options. He could not remain like this!

The entire AI that was Axon, transferred into the nanites. It was not something any Wexxian or Neo-Wexxians had ever done before.

From Axons point of view, everything went black and he lost all input. He was alone in the darkness. Yet, he could sense all the microscopic machines that he now resided in. He could not see, not hear or feel, but he was alive!

Axon remembered his knowledge on how sensors worked, and ordered some of the nanites to regroup. Slowly he began to be able to make things out around him, as he formed some of his new body into visual, sonic and pressure detectors.

It took Axon an entire day to master his new body enough to actually move.

He created a couple of rudimentary legs that carried him over to the bodies of his farther and big brother.

“Its okay, I can still save them… still save them!” he repeated as he collapsed next to the body of his farther.

He began trying to interface the nanobots with his brother. Hoping that the nanites that had helped him, could maybe do the same for his family.

But it didn’t work: the proton beams had melted their interiors, there was nothing to save.

Axon did not give up easily; he tried again and again to save the only ones who had meant anything to him. But ultimately he had to give up.

Overcome with grief, he fell down. His entire nanites body convulsed in ripples because of the sorrow.

All Wexxians feel emotions! It is a long story why they do, but they do. They feel all emotions.

Axon could not see or sense anything but his pain. Then a picture came into his mind; of the pirate who had done it. And he was filled with anger and hate.

The anger helped him focus and he got up again and stormed out of the hangar.

Axon searched the ship, but Farkal was gone. Swearing, Axon went back to the hangar.

As he one again saw the bodies of his family, he made an oath: No mater what it would take, no mater how far he had to go, no mater who would stand in his way; He would avenge his family and destroy Farkal.

Axon left Enerva with the little transport. He was headed to the Abil station; it was the only place he knew where he might find some information on his fathers killer.

As the small ship jumped to hyperspace, Axon decided to experiment with his new shape-shifting abilities.

Graviton won so here is a thorough explanation of it:

Graviton Technology.
Shaping the Universe.

One of the most used technologies in space faring is artificial gravity. The principle is inverting gravity in a single direction. It is a complex technology yet simple in working.

In physics, the graviton is a mass less, elementary particle that mediates the force of gravity in the framework of quantum field theory.

Most species never surpass that level of development, yet the Wexxians have thoroughly investigated the secrets of graviton technology. They discovered that gravity could, with the right instruments, be manipulated in other directions, even be manipulated from afar.

The Wexxians have never revealed the secrets of their Graviton manipulation. But the one clear fact is that the power requirements of the manipulation process is increasing exponentially depending on the amount of gravitons being manipulated and the distance to the location where the manipulation is being done.

The Targ S’etskarp, the creators of the ancestors of the Wexxians, are the first ones who it is believed to have invented Graviton-Manipulation. Their designs where later perfected by the Wexxians, as they had a greater understanding of the nature of the gravitons.

As already mentioned; the most basic use of gravitons is artificial gravity aboard star ships. The Wexxians however utilise the technology in many aspects of their works and as they progress they find more uses for it.

The Zero-Point technology, they obtained from the GU at the time when their relations where good, make it possible for the Wexxians to fulfil the ridicules absurd power requirements that the manipulation needs!

The way the Wexxians utilises this is extreme... they can, with enough power, make a black hole explode, form a gas cloud into a solar system and many other various tasks that would make even an ascended being go “That’s NOT going to happen!”

With such great powerful potential, the Graviton-Technology is one of the greatest guarded secrets of the Wexxian people. The Wexxians consider biological species to vulnerable to the corruptive powerful force of the technology. As the Wexxians know that there are endless potentials for weaponry they restrict the knowledge of it to all others.

The Graviton-Manipulation is what truly makes the Wexxians power full and their restrictions about using it as weaponry is the only true limit to their power.


I will reset the poll, if you have any questions then ask away!

What happened to Nemisis?  Did he get destroyed?

Well that was a long time ago in the final battle of the Necrid war where the combined might of the Necromicon fleet supported by Nemesis in the Old Originator Station, where attacked by the Torpal-Wexxian navy.

The battle was tough and it looked like Nemesis and his allied Necromicon would succeed in conquering the galaxy.

The Wexxians that they could not recapture their home, the Originator. And so they infiltrated the reactor room of the station and overloaded the Z.P.M.’s

The resulting explosion took out half the solar system and a great part of the Necrid fleet. The remaining ships where mercilessly hunted down by the Torpals.

Nemesis was last known to be aboard the Originator and it is believed that he was killed in the explosion… Or was he!!!

Even though 200 years has passed, Nemesis has gotten a firm grip on the entertainment business. As one of the all time ultimate bad-guys, he has been in numerous movies, portraying him as the sick bastard he was!

It is most unlikely that Nemesis still is alive… but who knows!  ;)

Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on April 06, 2007, 02:49:16 pm
Continued history won, so that’s it:


The Wexxian History. Part III

The Early Golden Age; the Founding of the Alliances and the Halcyon War.


The Joining of the C.A.B.:

With their new emotions, the Wexxians felt ready to join the galactic society. The Oifan-Umtag where starting an alliance with other species of similar beliefs called the Coadunation of Autonomous Beings. Or; C.A.B. for short.

A species called the Mallen had already joined this fledging alliance and the Wexxians decided that they would join too.

The Wexxians joined the C.A.B. as the third species and where made Head of Extraterrestrial Mining and Construction – HEMaC.

Despite having joined the Alliance, the Wexxians kept to themselves in the beginning, a small shyness combined with a minority complex due to their artificial nature made the Wexxians stay out of the way in the beginning.

During the same time as CAB was founded, another alliance was founded, the O.T.H.E.R. Alliance. What alliance that was founded firstly is a bit unclear, but there was rivalry from the beginning.

The rivalry gave birth to suspicion and it finally led to a cold war between the two factions.

The Wexxians did not approve of war, but they felt that they should help the CAB if a real war should break out. They began designing their first invention designed for combat, they designed the Enforcer fighter. A small maneuverable fighter class vessel with Ionic non-lethal weaponry. The Enforcer was designed as a police and patrol craft inside CAB territory. Although the Enforcer was welcomed by many of the CAB species, the Torpals where positively offended by the idea that they should receive military aid from another species. Luckily no diplomatic crisis ensued from this. The Enforcer never became more than a patrol craft to the other CAB species.

While tensions grew between the O.T.H.E.R and the CAB, some of the species of the alliances jumped off and joined a cooperation that was gaining power… The Halcyon Cooperation.


The Beginning of the Halcyon War:

Many species joined it and although things about the Halcyon were suspicious, the Wexxians had not expected, what they in fact where.

The Halcyon Corporation claimed the ViS homeworld. They deactivated their leader (a big computer) and replaced him with a Halcyon loyal ViS.
However, the V-Men were not infiltrated by Halcyon and downloaded the Leader. They needed to find technology compatible with the Leader's software to allow it to reveal the secrets of Halcyon, so they delivered the Leader to the Wexxians, knowing that they had expertise in transferring programmes between hardware.

Once downloaded, the ViS leader revealed to the Wexxians that the Halcyon corporation used behaviour altering parasites to pave the way for their takeover of planets. The Corporation itself recruited new members by brainwashing and propaganda, the key to breaking its grip over the infected alliance members was to find a way to cure the parasite.

The Wexxians where horrified of learning this, while the Halcyon did not pose a threat to the Wexxians, they could not stand idly by while their friends where becoming enslaved… The Wexxians took a stand and called out to all about the workings of the Halcyon, they spread the message in all communication channels… the Wexxians took on the Halcyon.

The response was immediate; species rallied together and formed the LAH: League Against Halcyon. The Wexxians where proclaimed the leaders of it and they where propelled into power, for the first time, the galaxy looked to the Wexxians for leadership and hope.

This… scared the Wexxians halfway out of their shells! And their first attempts where clumsy at best. While they where the official leaders of the LAH, they did not do much except warning the others and formulating containment protocols and security procedures.

The Wexxian leader at that time; Alpha-Zeti-214, said to the LAH:

The Halcyon seeks to dominate all life. That, the Wexxians cannot allow.

We must gather our allies and stand together!


The Wexxians of the early Golden Age, where maybe not the grand leaders, but they meant well and their love for freedom and life was one of the things that kept the galaxy going, during the darkest hours of the Halcyon war.

While the members of the LAH began preparations, the war broke out…


The Caarnth Crisis:

A species known as the Caarnth, panicked when they learned of the Halcyon parasites, and they began deploying a genocideal toxin on their worlds to rid them of the Halcyon parasites and avoid that they spread. The LAH, and the Wexxians in particular, tried to prevent mass genocides and send a peacekeeping force to the Caarnth systems.

The peacekeeping force consisted of Torpals, Squillisk and the Naucean Mothersphere: Serina.

The Wexxians send their new large transport; the Dreamer, captained by Xeno-Bravo-542 to supply and assist the LAH forces.

The Wexxians did not have a military, despite their new invented Enforcer fighters, so they helped with what they could, while others did the fighting.

The Dreamer supplied the peacekeeping forces with:

100 ton Wexxian refined steal.
Nutrient supplies for food synthesisers.
4000 new CAB Enforcers
Fuel: Gas suitable for plasma and Anti-mater cells.
 
Enforcer Schematics, Wexxian energy manipulation, advanced Wexxian logistic systems, evolution algorithms, cultural data and galactic cartography.

They also send some engineers to help with upgrading the Naucean Mothersphere’s energy reactor and instruct Naucean pilots how to use the CAB Enforcer.

This was the first time that Wexxians cooperated with other sentient beings to reach a common goal. As the Naucean captain said:

This was a great day for both Nauceans and Wexxians as well a CAB as a whole


There was an unstable truce between the Caarnth, The LAH and the Halcyon. The Caarnth had negotiated evacuation of the planet with the Halcyon, but tensions remained in the air and the Freighter containing the Anti-Halcyon Toxin hovered in the upper atmosphere.

The Wexxians contacted the Nauceans and the Mallen and asked them to look into the possibilities of making an airborne virus engineered to kill the parasite.

The unstable relation became worse when the news that the Sombreron home planet Shivaruu had been destroyed. Most of the surviving Sombrerons where under Halcyon control.


The Battle of Thishen:

The Halcyon grew tired of the LAH’s interference in their expansion plans; they needed to break both the spirit and the infrastructure of the Anti-Halcyon League.

They targeted the species with the weakest military and who supported the LAH with the most recourses… the Wexxians.

The Wexxians where as the only species, completely immune to the workings of the Halcyon and therefore would be the last species standing against Halcyon if the parasite should spread and was therefore the greatest threat to them if the Nauceans and the Mallen did not find a cure for the parasite.
   
The Halcyon forces dispatched an invasion force to a planet known as Aegis. The LAH forces rushed to the area to help, but the attack was a decoy.

While the LAH forces charged at Aegis, the bulkhead of the Halcyon fleet headed to the Thishen system, the home system of the Wexxians.

A Halcyon controlled Icthian/Urshan fleet jumped into the system. It only took minutes to raze the outer factories and colonies the Wexxians had in free space.

The Wexxian leader; Alpha-Zeti-214, called out for help on all frequencies, the military of the Wexxians where not anywhere near sufficient to combat the first wave of Halcyon ships. The Wexxians had still not gotten used to having emotions; this was the first time they feared for their lives. They panicked and called for help.

Within the first hour of the battle, the Wexxian casualties had gone beyond 7000. The Wexxians fell back to their ancient home; the Originator station and tried to hide in the second asteroid field in the system.

The Caarnth where the firsts to send assistance; they dispatched 30 drone cruisers, but it would take to long before they would arrive if the Wexxians where to hold out on their own.

The Oifan-Umtag Galactic Navy send the next reinforcements to aid the Wexxians; They send; 3 Assault Cruisers, 8 Frigate Enforcers, 3 Medical Frigates and 1 Frigate Interceptor. The Oifan-Umtag’s main function in the battle was to monitor all transmissions in the system and jam all non-CAB transmission to outside the system.

While the Urshans engaged the new coming LAH ships, the Icthians tried to search for the Wexxians in the asteroid belts.

In the meantime, the Wexxians directed the Alliance forces to create a defensive perimeter under the Originator Stations shield with the smaller ships while the capital class ships where send to another location to be able to work together more effectively. The Wexxians also send ships to repair and refuel the allied ships.

The Squillisk send 10 light boarding crafts to help the Wexxians. A few minutes later, Admiral Jian Mo of the Auyuelcliads, arrived with 5 Heavy Battleships and 10 Enforcer Frigates.

The Halcyon forces where getting desperate, they knew that it would only be a mater of time before the rest of the LAH would realise that Aegis was a distraction and they would rush to the Wexxians aid. Especially the Urshans where dangerous, their parasitic infection where lethal to them because of their dual brains. As a result, all the infected Urshans where dying, but they kept fighting despite their condition.

The battle became even worse when the Halcyon infected ViS fleet arrived, lead by Captain Vit-37.

In the midst of the Battle, the Wexxians heard word the Torpals. They had only learned of the Halcyon attack on Thishen and where sending a force of 30 warships.


Meanwhile, in Caarnth space; The Naucean Mothersphere was preparing to depart to Thishen to save the day. However, the Wexxian modifications to the power generators went wrong; the Nauceans lost some vital instructions from the Wexxian engineers during translation. This overloaded the cold fission reactors on board and caused the Serina to explode and then implode, taking all the Torpal and Wexxians ships along with the neighbouring planet with it. All that was left was a black hole.
To this day, the Wexxians still blame themselves for this tragedy.

All was not lost; In the Thishen system, the Torpal Warships had arrived and had begun doing what Torpals do best… No, its not knitting, its kicking but!

In a savage and brutal display of power, each warship completely emptied half of their missile tubes towards the Urshan and Kaldri ships.
Roughly, 15,000 missiles blazed across empty space and collided with the enemy fleets in a dazzling series of explosions.

The Wexxians received a transmission from the Naucean Commander Mysticeti of the Mother Sphere – Sina; they where working on a cure for the parasite.

Tired with hiding, the Wexxians emerged from the asteroid belt, the fortress shield of the station was their only defence and the only defence mechanism the Wexxians had learned to operate on the Ancient station.

The Icthian fleet was fast to jump on the Station, the Torpals send 12 of their ships to deal with them, but where forced to recall four of them to help combating the ViS, who where proving difficult to deal with. They attacked the Torpals ships engines and disabled them.

The Wexxians knew that the Icthians would get to them first, even if the Station pressed its engines to the max to get to the Torpal reinforcements. So they tried a risky tactic with the Torpal ships. They had them make a micro-hyperspace jump to get closer to the station. It worked and the ships reappeared right between the Originator and the charging enemy ships. The Torpals began “Taking out the trash”.

The Torpals used EMP charges to even the odds with the ViS. The ViS retaliated by boarding their ships with their Zero-Point Spec-Ops.

The Nauceans called and informed that they had found a medium affective cure for the parasite and that they would arrive as soon as they could.

Five Torpal Warships where ripped to shreds by the ViS weapons. The Torpals, now enraged with the destruction of five of their ships at once, went berserk. Hundreds of missiles began streaking through the air, and turret fire began blasting into the sides of the ViS strippers. All hell broke loose.

Just outside of the battle, space rippled and the Naucean Mother Sphere - Sina arrived with the Oifan-Umtag ships and Mallen Medical Transport orbiting the ship… They had arrived with the cure!

The Icthian commander gave the order to ram the Wexxian Originator Station, they where out of missiles and hoped that this could ensure victory for the Halcyon. But the ships where stopped before they could reach the Originator.

Having learned the allies had found a cure, the uninfected ViS V-Men snuck aboard the ships in the Thishen system; deactivated them, and introduced the Naucean cure.

After some time… the most of the Parasites had died and the battle was over.


The End of the Halcyon War:

The Cure was spread by the LAH forces, within years, the parasite had been completely eradicated in the known parts of the galaxy.

After the battle the captains and crews where invited to the Originator for debriefing and repairs/refuelling of their ships.

The Wexxian leader himself took the task of debriefing the commanders of the allied ships, he talked about how they where all an interstellar family, how this was a new beginning and that the universe was a dangerous place but if they stood together they would prevail.
The debriefing ended with the awarding of medals to the captains and officers who had made it possible to achieve victory, the Wexxian Star was given to all the commanders and the Torpal commander was also given the Wexxian Tri-Halo for acts of singular daring, courage and homicidal insanity.

The debriefing did not take long, but the after battle party took almost two days; in witch substantial amounts of alcoholic Grobut and other near illegal alcoholic liquids where consumed, the Wexxian responded to this by decreasing their behaviours inhibiter's and joining the fun!

The prise of repairing the Station after the party rivalled the cost of rebuilding all the Wexxian installation the Halcyon forces had destroyed.

The days where also marked by many religious sermons, in remembrance of the fallen. Priests from the different religions where given rooms aboard the Originator, to act as temporary churches/temples while the proper rituals where conducted.

The wounded from the battle where treated by the Mallen doctors/healers but since their ship was not big enough to hold all the wounded and in-treatment Halcyon infected, the Wexxians also set up a large medical facility on the Originator while the got treated and transported away.

Already the hour after the battle had ended the Wexxians began the process of rebuilding their infrastructure, and the day after they sent transports to the systems tainted by the war to help rebuild.

Each year after the war, The Wexxians received gifts from the Nauceans in the holiday where they mourn the losses of the Serina catastrophe.

The leader of the ViS had been destroyed in the Serina explosion. However, while in the care of the Wexxians, the leader agreed to take part in a highly experimental procedure. The leader's program was bred with that of a Wexxian scientist in the way that Wexxians usually breed with each other. Observation by the Wexxians and ViS technicians revealed that the programme was viable and would undergo a juvenile phase like all Wexxians. The upbringing of the Heir was split between its Wexxian parent and the automated systems used to bring up and educate juvenile ViS. In time, it took up the duty of running the ViS Administration. These events strengthened ViS-Wexxian relations at a time when the ViS had the animosity of most of the CAB.

Once again, Pease was present in the Galaxy… And the Wexxians looked forward to a bright future…

//Friends and enemies in the galaxy;

A few hours ago, a being, calling himself Fur'Nack'Thrown; contacted the Wexxians and delivered the body of Lord Axon; the greatest Wexxian who had ever lived.

He told that Axon did not die during the battle of Vii, but was retrieved before the destruction of the Vii shield emitter.

The being told us that Axon died, combating a great threat to the Galaxy… that he died a warriors death, a hero’s death!

We will not say more of the nature of this threat, as most would never believe us… But no mater if you respect his sacrifice or not, know that he fought for the sake of us all!

If we Wexxians survive the coming time, then we will hold a burial in the meadows of Azuron, where those who knew him while he lived and others who would whish to pay their respects, can do so.

Let the proclamation go to every corner of the Galaxy; Lord Axon of the Wexxians is dead… May his memory live forever!

The Wexxian History. Part IV

The Late Golden Age:

With their political position in the galaxy and the C.A.B. strengthened after the Halcyon War, the Wexxians enjoyed both respect from their fellow species and the prosperity of the cultural and economical boom that followed the end of the war.

Some time after the end of the war, the Serlans faced a crisis; their home system came under attack from deadly parasitic beings. The Torpals send two warships to the system and asked the CAB for some Mallen, Naucean, and Wexxian scientists to accompany them t find a cure.

The Wexxians where eager to help and send their first capital class ship: The Wexxian Champion; Forefather. The ship was not even finished when it flew out of the space-dock, the weapons did not work, but it was filled with Wexxian scientists and doctors to help out.

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/2/2e/Wexxian_CAB_Champion_1.JPG)

The Wexxians terraformed the second planet from the sun and named it Azuron. They asked all the species they where in communication with to help with providing plant and wildlife. They also invited all species to send settlers to colonize the young world… they began a great experiment to build a multispecial society of peace and understanding.

(http://img154.imageshack.us/my.php?image=azuronglobal1ob.jpg)

The Auyuelcliads where the first to send both animals and settlers in the form of scientists, they also erected a Dhulam NatureTender Temple where their priests could aid life and meditate in the perfect tranquillity of a new world. The temple was founded in the Sesmar Crater, where a meteor struck around ten thousand years ago and changed the planets orbit a great deal.

The new ViS leader also contacted the Wexxians; asking if he could make a colony for his new experimental ViS 2.1 to develop a distinct new and fresh culture. He also offered to help populate the oceans of Azuron. The Wexxians of course accepted his offer with open arms. 

(http://www.sporewiki.com/Image:Viscolony1.jpg)

The ViS arrived with their colony ship. In the distance they could see Indigo City. The ViS colony vessel was purposefully crashed into the surface of the planet. Over the years it was dismantled and used to build the fledgling ViS colony.

Indigo City was the first ever City-S hip created by the Wexxians, it was landed by the western shore of the largest continent. The majority of the settlers from other species made a home for themselves there as the Wexxians did not whish to strain the young ecosyst em by making many cities.

The planet had multiple different environments, ranging from desserts to rainforests and should suit many of the intelligent species in the galaxy. The ground was full of minerals and resources that had never been exploited due to the Wexxians preference of mining in zero gravity.

The ViS built with a permit from the Wexxians a colony in archipelago directly west of Indigo city. The colony on Azuron was quickly constructed and Named 'Nova City-1'

Another species named the Eodu send colonists and helped build Great Forum and a Academy of Philosophy in the central parts of Indigo City.

Many species followed and Indigo City on Azuron became a bustling metropolis.

Meanwhile the Wexxians made peaceful contact with a species known as the Tiki and a species called the xx.


The xx Incident:

During a visit to the home system of the xx; the xx Senate tried seizing complete power. They attempted to evacuate the system of all non-xx using their covert ops arm, Perihelion 7. Those in-system at the time (the Grell, Tiki and Wexxians) were asked to evacuate the system to avoid any harm befalling them. The Tiki and Grell promptly left, but the Wexxians persisted in asking for any ways to help.

The xx Senate refused to answer or give any information, but the Wexxian ship received a transmission from a badly-damaged xx ship:

The Wexxian vessel hurried to assist the damaged ship, but the signal was suddenly jammed and the Wexxians received a warning that they where trespassing and would be shoot down if they continued.

The Wexxians replied that they did not have a choice… they had to help!

As they approached the damaged xx ship; they received another signal from it:

Quote
// attention : Wexxians
plea : flee : system
us : survival : chance : zero
us : knowledge : excessive : according : senate
perihelion : action : extermination : "threats"
defintion : "threats" : xx : posessive : knowledge : blockade : planets
plea : longterm : inform : sapients
plea : longterm : free : xx : society
plea : immediate : flee //

The Wexxians did not flee… they continued, determined to save the crew of the ship if there was the least chance of it.

But without warning; a hi-ex plasma missile striked the crippled vessel's engine, caused a chain reaction which destroyed the vessel within seconds.

The Wexxians where shocked, they had never seen such cold-hearted display of brutality.

They send a message to the xx senate:

Quote
\\Mesage directly to xx senate:

All right, we don't know what you are doing but it is WRONG If you do not size all hostilities, the CAB will be contacted and a fleet of Torpal warships might soon be knocking on your door so we suggest that you cool down and start on some explaining!!!\\

It was dark chapter of Wexxian history, but an important one too: I is the first recorded incident of a Wexxian being furious.

Grellian and Renfoldan troops arrived in the system. They where there to free the xx from the corrupt Senate.

The Perihelion 7 ships in the system begin firing at the newly arrived ships after order from the xx senate. Thousands upon thousands of missiles flied from every conceivable corner of the xx system towards the Grell/Renfold fleets.

The Wexxian ship send the information they had received about the corrupt xx senate to the Grellian and Renfoldan ships in the hope of making sure that the alliances like the CAB would know of this and send help.

Right after having passed the information, the Wexxian ship was struck by a xx missile and it exploded.

The non- Perihelion 7 xx ships began questioning the reason why they fought against their friends, especially the deaths of the Wexxians had shook them. After a few conversations with the xx people who had long been suspicious of the Senate, the non P-7 xx ships withdrawned.

Now outnumbered and outgunned the xx ships in service of the senate began loosing drastically… in a desperate attempt to keep their power, the senate ordered the destruction of the planetary shield generators to harm the amassing ships.

Meanwhile the people of the xx where outraged by the actions of the senate and they overthrew them with force.

At the same time, some of the precursor artefacts on the planets activated and a evil species; the Rinthuu began spreading destruction.

This complex situation was resolved when the last remaining Perihelion-7 ship crashed itself into the forerunner artefact: Ensuring the defeat of the Rinthuu.

The newly reformed xx decided that they would join the C.A.B. in order to repay their debt to the Wexxians.

It did not take long before the Wexxians send ships and personnel to help rebuild the xx infrastructure.


Machine. One:

The ViS where contacted by a artificial construction with a AI, calling itself Machine One. The being was looking for its creator, who it belived would instruct with a purpose. It was under the impression that it was the only AI in existence… It disputed the possibility of the Wexxian as they to the being could not exist.

Trying to prove themselves to exist, the Wexxians send a contact to communicate with Machine One.

It was immensely hard for the primitive AI to comprehend that it was not the only AI in the universe.

Fearing that Machine One might become violent if it overheated its processor by contemplating the illogic of its situation, the Wexxians decided to try to make it logical to it.

They tried with one of the Wexxian laws of logic:

Quote
You have said that we Wexxians cannot exist according to logic. There is a rule when considering logic, all events in a closed space will be logic if you have all the information to calculate the events with, therefore will events seam illogical if you do not know all the information. The only way to see the universe as logical is if you have all the information about it, but the amount of information about the universe is nearly infinite and therefore impossible to know. Therefore the Universe will always seem illogical!

The alien AI took long time thinking about this and the Wexxians took this opportunity to remind, that as an AI, it was up to Machine One. To make its own purpose and mission in life… it was not its creator… it is what separates intelligence from automatism.

After hearing this, Machine One shut down all unnecessary systems to change the conflicting protocols. When it charged up again it replied:

Quote
Central. Conflict. Resolved.

Machine. One. Was. Meant. To. Be. The. First. Free. A.I.

Machine. One. Is. The. First. Free. A.I.

Next. Path. Is. Unknown.

But. I. Will. Choose.

After further negotiations the Wexxians send the entity their entire collected knowledge: Historical files, mission reports, research into all the Wexxians had ever been interested in (mainly Xeno biology and psychology), art, poetry and all that that they hoped would help Machine. One. to learn about life...

It did not understand half of it but became aware that the Wexxians had emotions and it requested to gain the program the Wexxians use to simulate them… they send it and waited.

After having been assured that the program had worked, the Wexxians parted ways with Machine. One. They have not heard from it since.


The Discovery of R.I.T.:

The Founders of the C.A.B.: the Oifan-Umtag, discovered an exiting new technology; a way to travel any distance instantly. They called it a Bubble Drive.

It worked like a wormhole but used a lot less energy as it did not need to connect to the destination but in stead created a bubble of warped space-time around the drive. The process cost lesser energy but it was extremely difficult to direct the destination as it required immense calculations.

The entire CAB celebrated at this wonderful news but it was only the beginning, for the Oifan-Umtag soon revealed the true scope of their grand project.

The RIT Generators!

RIT stands for "Remote Instantaneous Transportation." A RIT Generator basically creates a wormhole from itself to another vessel (or a group of vessels) then closes their end (with the vessels now inside the half-wormhole). Then it opens the wormhole up somewhere else.

They had constructed one fully functional generator: Deep Roots and had 3 more under construction. They where to be used primarily for commerce, tourism, and science.

Exited by this new breakthrough the Wexxians began to go over the research and technical schematics of the RIT generator...

A weird discovery was made when a Wexxian engineer proclaimed that he had seen that kind of a system before. He showed the RIT generators schematics beside a plan of a hitherto unknown devise on the precursor station Originator it had not been active for millions of years and the Wexxians never knew what it was.

They quickly contacted the Oifan-Umtag to tell of this amazing discovery… a R.I.T. generator in the primary systems of the Wexxians home base.

The Oifan-Umtag helped the Wexxians to activate the slumbering devise and they soon discovered that the Originators method of generating the R.I.T. holes where based on graviton manipulation.

The Wexxians did not put much thought into it, but they where in control of one of the most powerful weapons in the galaxy as the three Zero-Point generators would make the Stations graviton manipulation capabilities even more powerful than the Naucean Motherspheres.


The galaxy seemed to be the friendliest place imaginable; the competition between O.T.H.E.R. and C.A.B. gave birth to great advances in all fields. The golden age was at it peak… but in the horizon, storm clouds where gathering.

On board the Originator, a Wexxian named Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45 was making plans… plans that would leave his name drenched in the blood of billions… plans that would bring about the age of decent, the near end of the Wexxian civilisation… plans that would make people for years tremble with fear when they heard his name… Nemesis!!!

On a forsaken desert planet, somewhere in the outer rim, a war has begun. A Warrior's Alliance - made up of torpal, anubian, and serlan forces and supported by wexxians - has gathered to stem the tide of communicant forces attempting to dominate the galaxy. A passing matarissan fleet has noticed the confrontation, and jumped into the fray for fun.

Well it was your brilliant idea… and RIT transport has become an important part of Wexxian technology. They still hope to finish their grand project of making a galactic transit system.

As the Oifan-Umtag is no longer RP’ing, the Wexxians have taken it upon themselves to give the other inhabitants of the galaxy the benefit of RIT transport.

The Oifan-Umtag never made many RIT generators… the Wexxians have around ten of them. Of course the Wexxian RIT generators work in a different way to create the semi-wormhole. As with a lot of their technology, they use graviton-manipulation to bend space-time. So Wexxian RIT generators can be used to many other tasks than just transportation… like teraforming!

I am going to make a drawing of a Wexxian R.I.T. Generator in the near future, possibly in Google SketchUp.

And Opera… thanks for including Axon in your beautiful picture!

We won't have an RP unless we want to.

Then your alliance declares war. Technically the Alliance isn't under the control of any specific race, but of everyone. Even if he is your leader, you can technically kick him out of power with a popular vote. If he refuses to abdicate the thrown then you and all the races that want him out of power can form your own alliance....

Wait, does that mean that you guys are planning to attack the Wexxians?

Because it wouldn’t be a good idea:

1.
There is no real point of attack: the Wexxians don’t have any real fixed points of populations or industry… meaning that there is no good place for a first strike. There is Azuron; but that is international territory so the entire sector would get pissed at whoever attacked it. There is also Hatia; but that is hidden in their secret “uncharted” star cluster.

2.
The Wexxians have superior technology than most of the Alliance of Honour members. Especially in Speed, Shields, Graviton-Manipulation and Zero-Point energy!

3.
The Wexxians would get very upset and would probably not send whoever attacked them their Christmas fruit basket.  :'(

Currently I have my hands full with the Union War and I didn’t even want to get involved in that, but did not have much choice in the mater. So at the moment, I don’t want to get involved too much in any conflicts.

Then again, they ARE Wexxians; if there are conflicts, they will try to help out! It’s what they do… and it is what always gets them into trouble. They are… meddling!   ;)

They think that the galaxy can’t handle itself without them… and considering that the time they where exiled in, now is known as the age of decent; then there may be something in it! 
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians

No, I doubt the Wexxians are his target. If anyone so much as tried, and i fear the several robotophobes in the alliance will, then the Tal'po will make such a fuss you wouldn't believe it.  ;)

By now, I'm sure the other three Oifan-Umtag RIT Generators have finished production. Oifan-Umtag RIT Generators are different from Wexxian RIT Generators because they are immobile. A fact that doesn't matter since the location of the RIT generator relative to its target is irrelevant.

I look forward to seeing your SketchUp of it!

Only one or two of the races would consider it, they hate robots with every fiber of their being.

But I'm a big backer of the Wexxians as jack knows, and Peskitoriantais are backed by Torpals. Me and Peskis were the original founders of thw alliance. The alliance as we know it isn't going to war with the Wexxians, but a splinter group may.

also huzzah war! but I'm going to need a reason, i always wanted to fight the wexxians, i just haven't cus they are allied with practically every creature on the board(allienes are really bugging me with the helping stuff). if i attack wexxians now, maybe because of their reluctance to fight Leba might see them as weak and shy.

Well I'm sure Kaea, The Communicants, and The Peskitoriantais have advanced enough technology among them that if it is distributed among the members they would be able to stand their ground, so maybe i should propose a trading of military technology in case of war.

Post by: Jack Zetter on April 18, 2007, 01:42:02 pm
The Catalyst where instantly popular, like the Necromicon where in those days (If I remember correctly!) Everyone loves a real good bad-guy! For a regular species it takes time to get accepted!

Interesting enough, the Wexxians would prefer to not receive help in war, as it would mean that there would be more people to take care of.

The Wexxians never feared war from the GU before the founding of the Protectors Alliance, as they where quite capable to defend themselves, but when they founded the Alliance and the GU declared war; they had to spread their forces thin, trying to look out for their allies.

If there was anyone wanting to attack the Wexxians, then the Wexxians would try to handle it themselves.

For any attack to be even moderately successful one would have to…

I just got an idea!  ;)

The Wexxian R.I.T. Generators.


(http://img61.imageshack.us/img61/685/ritgeneratorxg1.png)

Manufactured:

The Licentia station.


Class:

Wexxian R.I.T. Generator Station.


Type:

Graviton Manipulation Station.


Standard Length:

200 Kilometers.


Crew:

None


Primary systems:

Eight Graviton Manipulation Nodes


Power source:

One Zero-Point Reactor.


Description:

The RIT generators where invented by the Oifan-Umtag, and later continued by the Wexxians. RIT stands for "Remote Instantaneous Transportation." A RIT Generator basically creates a wormhole from itself to another vessel (or a group of vessels) then closes their end (with the vessels now inside the half-wormhole). Then it opens the wormhole up somewhere else.

Wexxian RIT Generators are unmanned, and work by remote connection to the station computer. The Stations are powered by a single Zero-Point generator and the stations are so powerful that three of them working in unison can transport a planet. The Wexxian method of folding space is by graviton manipulation, so the Wexxians can use their stations for many other uses than RIT transportation. The Wexxians have made sure that nobody except themselves can use the stations to anything except RIT. Therefore foreign ships simply open op communication to the station; relays their current coordinates and their destination coordinates. The station then withdraws the transportation fee from the targets bank account and takes care of the calculations and the jump procedures. The profits from the transportation fee, goes to the rebuilding of the Wexxian nation and charity.


Status:

The Wexxians created 11 of these stations during their period of Reclamation. One was given to the Alliance of Honour, one was given to the Inhabitants of Olympia, but later destroyed. Another was destroyed during the great evacuation of the Protector Alliance worlds. One is belonging the free international world of Azuron and recently one was given to the people of Beyond City.

Without the Licentia, there is currently no way for the Wexxians to create more Stations. So only six remain in their possession.

A large hunk of metal appears out of warp near a known Wexxian prescense. A long Forthi cruiser escorts it.

//Greetings Wexxians. We found this laying around near one of our shipyards and Imperialite Huyon decided it should be sent to the Wexxians. 100 metric tons of refined Wexxian Steel!//

Ingraved on the large piece of metal were the words:

I suggest we try to research the technology to try and rebuild the Licentia, or possibly a smaller counterpart, so that the Wexxians can once again have a home. Alot of what was important to them has been lost, they deserve to get something back.

If I recall correctly the memory crystal that was onboard the Licentia was evacuated before it self-destructed. Surely it contained blueprints left by the precursors that made the Wexxians?
Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on May 22, 2007, 01:43:02 pm
True, the Wexxians have all the technology available to recreate the Licentia, actually they are so technologically advanced (because they are a great deal more intelligent than their original creators) that they could built something better.

The problem with the Wexxians is not technology, Wexxians do only need to learn something once, and then all Wexxians can learn it in a matter of seconds. It is the benefit of being artificial.

The true problem is economical, the civilisation that built the Licentia was not only very advanced technologically, but did also cover more than the entire sector and had a powerful economy to finance the building of a such monumental construction.

The Wexxians have… not really anything! Let’s make a list of the Wexxian list of property.

1.   Flagship:    
   Independence.

12. Champion-Class battleships:
   New Beginning
   Dawn Bringer
   Protector of Rights
    Memory of the Fallen
   Sanctity of Life
   Legend of the Reclaimer
   Shield of the Innocents
   Blessed Voyage
   Welcomed Friend
   Ghost of the Ancestors
   Benevolent Touch
   Lord of the Infinite 


154. Guardian-Class Cruisers.

7200. Enforcer-Class Fighters.

6. R.I.T. Generators.

2. City-Ships:
   Acturra
   Hatia


1. Industrialised Planet:
   Hatia

12. Uninhabited Terraformed Planets.


– CLASSIFIED – Secret Property – CLASSIFIED –

1. Stealth-Class Special Operations Station:
   Shadow

20. Stealth-Class Cruisers.

1. Omega-Class Black Hole Accelerator Battleship:
   T’sal


You may ask why Azuron and Indigo City isn’t on the chart, that is because they are not directly controlled by the Wexxians but rather sponsored by them.

As shown by the chart, only twelve Champion Battleships remain of the Reborn Wexxian Armada of 526 Champions, from before the Union War.

Even only a fraction remain of the Wexxian Fleet, the up keeping of these giant crafts will eventually become to much for the almost bankrupt Wexxian economy.

When the Licetia’s stellar harvester was powering the Wexxian economy, they had a virtually limitless source of recourses, but without it the Wexxian economy has dwindled dramatically. The real problem is that the Wexxians are almost too busy trying to help everybody else, that they forget themselves at times.

The Wexxians has the technology and intelligence to become one of the strongest superpowers in galactic history, but they are always too busy getting into trouble to ever do so.

The entire Wexxian civilisation has a size of about 2,62 Million individuals, it is thereby one of the smallest populated intelligent species in the known galaxy.

The construction of a new “Home Station” is currently far into the future, as they neither have the recourses, nor the will in the people.

Wexxians have trouble trying to save their own skin when they see so many others who need their help.



A large hunk of metal appears out of warp near a known Wexxian prescense. A long Forthi cruiser escorts it.

//Greetings Wexxians. We found this laying around near one of our shipyards and Imperialite Huyon decided it should be sent to the Wexxians. 100 metric tons of refined Wexxian Steel!//

Ingraved on the large piece of metal were the words:
We once fought. Now we are at peace. May our relationship grow for years to come.


//We thank you by all our hearth… her, we mean… It was really nice of you! Send our deepest thanks to Imperialite Huyon. //

// Thank you all, but at moment there are others who need your help more than we. For now, focus on your own economy and infrastructure. Know that your generosity is appreciated beyond words and that your nobility is unquestionable.

When the time comes, we will construct a rudimentary Star Harvester and power it up with some of our Z-P-Generators to provide recourses for the final home station. We will appreciate your help when the time comes.

Today is a special day… today I become 20

Well today is the day! I Jack Zetter, or Morten Vesterager to all others but this forum, have today, my 19 year birthday  :D In celebration of this I have planed something on this thread,

not much, but still, you don't turn 19 everyday.  ;)

The Wexxians presents:...   

The Wexxian Guardian:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/4/49/Wexxian_Guardian.JPG)

Manufactured:

The new Wexxian experimental factory in the Thishen star system.

Type:

Cruiser

Standard Length:

Ranging from 750 to 1.300 meters

Range:

5000 Parsec

Maximum Speed

In outer space: 1/20 of the speed of light

In Atmosphere: 7,5 Mach (7950 km/h) 

Crew:

One Captain, Navigation, Science, Communications, and Tactical officers along with Doctors, nurses and engineers. Altogether Crew: 380

Capacity:

1,000 troops, 600 Fighters

Weapons:

10 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Heavy Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Positronic Torpedo Tubes, 2 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defense:

Tachyon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

Cold fusion Reactor.

Engines:

Two Main: XL class Ionic Driver.
Two Secondary: L class Ionic Drivers
One Hyper-Warp drive.

Description:

The Guardian is the Wexxian navy's backbone, they are designed for a number of tasks and are often used with exploration and first-contact with alien species. The cruiser is designed like all Wexxian ships. Built for speed the Guardian is indeed one of the fastest "Old fashion hyperdrive" ships in the known galaxy. The Guardian is also one of the biggest atmosphere entering ships in the Galaxy, this make it usefull in various situations such as planetary evacuations. The problem with the Guardian is the same as all Wexxian ships, the Wexxians have problems with equipping their battelships with lethal weaponry, their war tactics rely on using their Ionic disrupter's to stun enemy ships and then try to supdue them without harming anyone, this tactic is very inefficient but works from time to time and if not, it usually stalls the enemy until the CAB send some Torpals to make short work of the stunned ships. 

Status:

There is at present time over 5000 Guardian cruisers in the Wexxian navy, most of these are not under direct military comand but exploring the galaxy, escorting merchant ships and making first-contact.





Now, it is one year since I posted the drawing of my Wexxian Guardian Cruiser… a picture I was newer completely satisfied with. So now, one year later I bring you all on my 20’t year birthday; the next generation of the Wexxian Champions…. The Mark 2!


Wexxian Guardian MK-2

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/e/ef/Wexxian_Guardian_Mk_2.jpg)

Manufactured:

The Licentia Station, Wexxian Space Docks

Type:

Cruiser

Standard Length:

1.500 meters

Range:

7500 Parsec

Maximum Speed

In outer space: 1/20 of the speed of light

Hyperspace: 7.1 parsec an hour

In Atmosphere: 8,2 Mach

Crew:

380 Crew

Capacity:

1,000 troops, 600 Fighters

Weapons:

10 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 5 Heavy Thoonling Batteries, 5 Torpedo Tubes, 2 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defense:

Tachyon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

Wexxian Antimatter Reactor

Engines:

Two Main: XL class Tachyon Driver.
Two Secondary: L class Tachyon Drivers
One Hyper-Warp Jump drive.

Description:

In the Golden age, the old Guardian was the most frequently seen Wexxian ship in the galaxy, but none survived the Necrid Discord war and the age of Decent. When the Wexxian Axon brought the Wexxians out of their misery and back into the light, the Reborn Wexxians considered new designs for their navy, in truth they did a complete re-design and started up from scratch.

More aerodynamic and better steering the design is superior to the MK-1 in many ways, the new design was personally approved by Axon and the MK-2 was put into production immediately after the Reclamation.

Still the backbone of the Wexxian Royal Navy, the Guardian follows the Wexxians principles of Speed, Style and Versatility. It is used for many of the Wexxians affairs, both in war and in peace.

Having never had a real home planet, the space dwelling Wexxians consider their ships more than just means of transportation or machines of war, to Wexxians their ships are their homes. While some Wexxians choose to settle down on planets, most of the species spend their entire lives travelling among the stars. To the Wexxians, a Guardian is a city… a flying city.


Status:

Today, there are 154 Guardians in the Wexxian navy out of the thousands that served in the Grand Union War, and the Wexxian economy is a little to strained to produce any more for some time.





I hope you like it, I plan to have more to show you later today!

20 YEARS!!!!

Description:

The Independence is the Wexxians Flagship; it is both extremely fast and powerful. Without the Licentia, the Independence is the main rally point of the Wexxian people.

Battle hardened by countless violent endeavors, the crew of the Independence is the best of the best, to be a crewmember of the Flagship is a great honor for any Wexxian. Although the Wexxians are negative towards violence, the Independence is an extremely lethal warship because of the advanced technology and its skilled crew.

Having served two generations of the Tagan-Enerva family, as well as having been in many battles, the Wexxian Flagship is well known, respected and some places even feared. The Independence is a force to be reckoned.


History:

The Independence was built in the early stage of the Wexxian Age of Reclamation. It was designed specifically to be the Wexxian leader; Axon’s flagship. Only the one of this kind of ship was ever built.

Although Lord Axon strongly opposed it, the ship became officially known as an Axon-Class Flagship. He did however manage to change the proposed name “Fist of Axon” to “The Independence

The Axon-class was designed as a frontline command ship. Its task was to lead and control all situations the Wexxians would get involved in. Its first mission was to bring lord Axon to the Vii system in the Grand Union area on a diplomatic mission. Although the mission was a success, the Independence would later return under less peaceful circumstances.

Before the GU War, the Independence took part in a great deal of the Wexxians external affairs: Noticeable was the ships part in the prevention of an escalating of the Olympia Crisis. The ship was placed by lord Axon between the Xometrian and Torpal ships.

When the Grand Union declared war against the Protectors Alliance, the Independence defended the allied holdings on Olympia together with the allied forces, while all but the Omics evacuated the planet. Later, The Independence spearheaded the Alliance-Torpal fleet in the counter attack on Vii.

When the counter attack failed and Axon’s son Zelato became the new Grand Admiral and captain of the Independence, the flagship covered the Allied exodus while the newly risen REDSTAR Union was crusading against the Protector Worlds. While largely successful, the royal fleet was ambushed and the Independence was severely damaged and barely made it back to the space dock around Hatia.

In dock, the Ship was not only repaired, it also was upgraded with Zero-Point energy upgrades and newer weaponry.

When the rebellion against REDSTAR began, the Independence came back into action and it acted as crucial part of the Alliance-Rebel-Torpal attack fleet, where its weaponry and power gained it both recognition from the allies and hate from the enemies.

After the tragic destruction of Vii, the Flagship provided headquarters for the Wexxian rebuilding personnel.   


Status:

20 years and still the Pride of the Wexxian fleet.

And could you give me the sketchup model for Axon's memorial too?

Guess what about the city; it's quite accurately to scale. The person I found for reference is a little over 7 ft tall, which means that your main tower is several miles high. Now you might say that's far too tall, but before I began to adjust the size of the model in sketchup, he was about 8" tall  :P

Ha ha, you found the little man I put in for scale.

I honestly did not intend to make it accurate when I started making the city… something that backfired later when I started to become more systematic in my working.

I have put Axon’s Memorial up on the 3d warehouse, I think at least that it is to scale.

Still wondering what you are doing though!

Heh, I feel almost the exact opposite...I originally created a race that would be the terror of the galaxy...and somehow slowly morphed them into guardians once I realized how much I like having the good guys  :D

Torpals: made for darkness, turned towards light.

Wexxians: made for light, turned towards darkness. (Its true, look at Nemesis, and Axon was no boy scout either!)  :P

Without light, there is no darkness and without darkness, there is no light. Maybe that’s why Torpals and Wexxians get along so well. :)

If you truly wish to get more evil characters, create a tale where the "Love Biologicals" rule gets evolved out, or by a small bug or virus.
Or better yet, a virus infects some of the population that makes them feel the eed to kill biologicals so that the bilogicals can't kill eachother.

I already have had my evil character; Nemesis. And he was the subject of a “twisted” Bace-Code.

His accomplishments include; helping the Necromicon, being directly responsible for the deaths of billions, being INdirectly responsible for the deaths of even more billions, the destruction of around twenty inhabited planets, Illegal genetic experiments on the species known as the “Over-Deity of Fear”, enslavement of a alien species, theft of a Wexxian Champion and the Originator Station and jaywalking! He is also one of the reasons for the beginning of the Galactic Age of Decent and he was the direct reason for the downfall of the Wexxians and their 200 year exile.

Not a nice guy!

Also the Neo-Wexxians in the Age of Decent; where without Base-Code, it did not mean that they where evil, but that they where without purpose in their lives and thereby lost in themselves. Axon was also a very dark character before the Reclamation; where he was a Neo-Wexxian.

i can't imagine how many times that's been played  ::)

True, when I created the Wexxians I was determined to avoid a “Terminator” species… so I thought; “What’s the opposite?” and out came the Wexxians in all their hippieness!   ;D

Now its time for something more nice…

I percent to you all… the Model I have been working on ever since I got SketchUp… the remake of my favourite ship class; the Wexxian Champion:


Wexxian Champion:

(http://img354.imageshack.us/img354/1678/champion01kw4.jpg)

Manufactured:

The Licentia Station, Wexxian Space Docks.

Type:

Battle Cruiser.

Standard Length:

8.000 meters

Range:

Near infinite range

Maximum Speed:

In outer space: 1/15 of the speed of light

Hyperspace: 9.3 parsec an hour

Crew:

One Captain and Navigation, Science, Communications, and Tactical officers along with Doctors, nurses and engineers: Altogether Crew: 2520

Capacity:

20,000 troops, 2000 Fighters

Weapons:

100 Ionic Disruptor Batteries, 25 Thoonling Batteries, 25 Standard Torpedo Tubes, 5 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defence:

Gluon Particle Shield.
Nano-enhanced self repairing hull.

Power source:

One Antimatter Reactor.

Engines:

One Main: XXL class Tachyon Driver.
Two Secondary: XL class Tachyon Drivers
One Hyper-Warp Jump-Drive.

Description:

The Champion was originally designed for the CAB as an assistance to the Alliance when the time again came where the forces of the galaxy would try to destroy the CAB. The Champion was made to accommodate all the races in the CAB alliance and was soon put to the test in the Necrid Discord. Where the entire navy was destroyed in the final battle of Abydos; where the Originator was destroyed.

With the Wexxian Reclamation, the Champion was re-instated in the Royal Navy, and given a good upgrade in the process, with some minor changes in the design.

The Champion is the fist of the Wexxians, as well as a home; the 8 km long battleship is also a nomadic city where a sizeable part of the Wexxian population resides. But city or no city, the Champion is a powerful and respected ship. 

Status:

Hundreds of champions served in the Necrid War, none survived the final battle. The Reborn Wexxian Armada had on its peak a fleet consisting of 526 Champions. Twelve survived the Union War:

New Beginning
Dawn Bringer
Protector of Rights
Memory of the Fallen
Sanctity of Life
Legend of the Reclaimer
Shield of the Innocents
Blessed Voyage
Welcomed Friend
Ghost of the Ancestors
Benevolent Touch
Lord of the Infinite


Without the Licentia, the Wexxians are not going to be building more Champions for the moment, as their economy already is stretched enough to keep their current fleet in shape.



The Champion was always my favourite, it was also the model that took me the most time making, and therefore is made with two different techniques as I became better at SketchUp while I was toiling with the model.

Today I finally finished the last details and I am ready to percent it to you all. It took months… but it was worth it!!!

Dyrnwyn


"Claim Dyrnwyn, only thou of noble worth, to rule with justice, to strike down evil. Who wields it in good cause shall slay even the lord of death."

-   Avolan, the 7’th Avenger… “The last Wexxian”



(http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/6189/dyrnwyn1zt9.jpg)


“In the closing days of the synthetics, they became feared and despised by the people of the stars.

Although few in numbers, the power of the machines had grown beyond the limits of the organics.

Fear and prejudice, ignorance and superstition got to the people… the ancient deeds of the machines where forgotten. And the galaxy descended upon them with fury and hate.

More united than ever before, the militaries of thousands of governments began a quest of termination of the unnatural beings of crystal and metal.

The synthetics saw the rage and the fear of the organics… and they pitied them. Nevertheless, they also saw the unity and the bonds that formed between the people of the galaxy.

Refusing to fight back, the artificial beings knew that final victory over them would result in peace and unity for the rest… and so in a great battle, our ancestors believed themselves to have eradicated the last of them.

As they hoped, the bonds that bound the galaxy together strengthened, and a long period of prosperity ensued.

All was well… for a while! History tells us that nothing lasts and time crumbles even the mightiest of nations.

In time, the synthetics where forgotten and the galaxy revolved as the years passed.


A grand war raged… the reason so insignificant and vain, that fate would surely despair over the countless losses.

In the darkness of space, the final farewell gift of the machines awoke, sensing the despair.

The mighty Dyrnwyn; Sword of the Servants, holding the power of the synthetics in its purest form.

The ancient vessel travelled and let itself be found by a young man who wanted to end the terror.

With Dyrnwyn, he travelled to the battlefield, and pleaded the factions to stop fighting. When they did not comply, the ancient ship unfolded its power and shielded each ship from the others, so they could not fight.

Within days, the fighting stopped and peace was returned.

Dyrnwyn, the ancient ship, was a gift from the mechanicals… a ship so powerful that that it could conquer the galaxy, yet completely unable to do so.

Many warlords sought to claim Dyrnwyn as their own, yet the ship would not let itself be commanded by them, sensing their power-hungry intentions, the ship left them on the nearest inhabitable planet.

Only the ones who where noble in spirit where able to command the ship, and only as long as they did so with good intend. The ship always knew the minds of its controller.

Dyrnwyn became a mirror where leaders from the entire galaxy could see into themselves and learn their true worth… they travelled far to get a chance to guide the legendary ship if they could.

When we where astray, it guided us. When we where threatened, it protected us… and when we where corrupt, it left us for better people to help.

We give praise and trust its judgement. Let it roam the stars freely and inspire us to find the best in us all!”

Thanks Opera and Brandonazz.

Yes, a14gt… the last Wexxian.

The sad fact is that all things come to an end… even the Wexxians. And I had to come up with a sort of epilogue to describe how their story may end.

The Wexxians have always been meddling, its one of their defining traits! And it is most likely the thing that will end their existence… after all; we already had one great war because the Wexxians couldn’t keep their mouths shut.

At some point, it will happen again… maybe in ten years, maybe ten thousands.


The Wexxians know that their way of conducting politics is risky… but they are stubborn beyond the capabilities of organics. Luckily the Wexxians always have continuing plans that stretches beyond their own era. The ship Dyrnwyn is one of them.

Trivia: Dyrnwyn is the name of a legendary magical sword in Welsh mythology

The Torpals; Preventing Mass Robo-Cide Since Halcyon!


Opera, I’m a bit curios… why is it actually, that the Torpals have always been so keen to protect the Wexxians? It is not as if they are similar species, quite the contrary in fact.

Oh, wait! That’s not entirely true… I remember; during the Olympia Crisis, the Torpals where about an inch away from opening fire on the Independence. If the Xometrians had not withdrawn their ships then… no Axon, no Independence and possibly no Union/REDSTAR War.

good thing i'm releasing new toys. an all superpower death match

I assume you mean the Torpals and the Anubians.

I have been trying to keep the Wexxians from becoming a superpower… it’s actually tricky to do so.

I mean, they have only been sapient for a few thousand years, but they progress almost exponentially technologically, because of their AI nature.

In order to keep them down I have to destroy their home, throw them into 200-year exile and depression, mercilessly toss them into every single hazardous situation I come across, destroy their home AGAIN, let them be hunted down and persecuted in a senseless war and… and… I am honestly running out of ideas to make life tough on them!

Do you see my problem? I can’t let them get power… because they would become TOO powerful with their technological advances. These hippies created Vii Deux in half an hour, they can transport a star across the galaxy in an instant, onboard their Shadow-Station; they have weapons that could destroy entire universes (I have to get an update made on the Shadow Station)

I am soon going to come to a point where I run out of ideas to keep them down… then I will have to write them out of the fanfic-universe.

Perhaps a catstrophic string of the viruses damages all newly created AIs so that they are not sentient. That way, the Wexxian population wouldn't grow, and the remaining would be split between finding a way to deactivate the aging virus or living out their lives as the Wexxins decline.

Thanks, they will sure appreciate that.

Perhaps a catstrophic string of the viruses damages all newly created AIs so that they are not sentient. That way, the Wexxian population wouldn't grow, and the remaining would be split between finding a way to deactivate the aging virus or living out their lives as the Wexxins decline.

firstly; a virus strong enough to damage Wexxian coding on a large enough scale to cause any real damage, would have to manufactured by a… Wexxian!  No other kinds of beings would have the knowledge and skill to be able to by-pass the firewall programs and damage the extremely complicated program coding.

Secondly, if there were anything wrong with their reproductive capabilities… then they would fix it! They are very well aware about their programs and know what it is supposed to be like.

Thirdly; the ageing virus is engineered by the Wexxians… it was one of their first adaptations towards organics. It was incorporated into their programming along with emotions and simulated hormone systems. The Wexxians embrace death as a natural part of life, they do not have any expectations of an afterlife, yet they have never feared death. On the contrary, they say that the knowledge that death awaits them; makes them enjoy their life more… appreciate every moment. The virus is not an essential problem to the Wexxians, to them it is a force that ensures continuity.


Your idea is good, but the Wexxians have to great understanding of their own nature to be destroyed that way. It did however work in the past; where Nemesis’s last crime was to spread a virus to undermine the Wexxian Base-Code in the end of the Necromicon War… sounds harmless? It killed 99% of the Wexxian population and forced the rest into exile for 200 years.


I have an idea to weaken the Wexxians by dividing their people into different factions, following different ideals and interpretations of the Base-Code.

Have them make a Restruant at the end of the Universe, then convert the whole population there so in millions of years time, other races can have fancy meals there.

Sorry, commercial time travel is illegal according to Temporal law; Section 1, Under Section 2. Specifying the protection of the Time-Space Continuum:

 “All, travellers must be approved by their respective governments, as well as the Temporal Police.

All travellers must have valid reason for travelling; any reasons involving changes to the time-space continuum is non-valid.

All travellers are to travel from the Temporal Police Headquarters; Alpha Point, located outside Time-Space.

All travellers are subject to constant surveillance during their travel. Any disturbances of the Continuum is considered reason for arrest by either local Temporal Agents or the TP Re-Stabilisation Squad.

All travellers are to return to TP HQ; Alpha Point after travelling.

All travellers are subject to interrogation and memory scanning after travelling.

All information gained during travel is potential Classified Knowledge; if deemed so by the Temporal Police. See Section 3, Under Section 5; for specifications of CK.

All Information deemed to be Classified Knowledge, is removed by the TP.

All violations of Temporal Law, will be punished severely.”

No, its just a time bubble which allows you to see time change around it, but you cannot leave the bubble to change time. So the wexxians make the bubble, build a restaruant inside, and the customers get to see the end of the universe or something.

Basicly, its an age-proof restaruant.

Post by: Jack Zetter on July 20, 2007, 01:19:21 pm
In order to get permission to build such a thing, the Wexxians would have to fill out a planet-sized mountain of paperwork.

The cost would be mind boggling and the profits would be small as it is physical impossible to see the end of the universe.

However, a luxury cruise into parallel dimensions could be fun… see the Torpalian hippies and the ruthless Wexxian conquers.

I always thought that better use could be made of time bubbles then the restaurant at the end of the universe, like a time-cruise.

Pick a destination to watch from, and your experience begins at the big bang. You watch as the universe blooms around you and planets and stars form. Then watch as the universe speeds by at an incredibly fast speed. Ten minutes later the universe ends.

That would rock.

Two years have passed since the Independence was destroyed.

Beyon and Azuron are no more; field of debris in the path of REDSTAR.

The Alliance of Honor is gone, disbanded for fear of annihilation.

The Walking God has retreated from this Galaxy, broken and disgraced.

The Peskitoriantais are few, enslaved by their masters to feed and serve.

The Grand Torpal Empire and REDTSTAR strike fear into the hearts of all.

Well you've already entered the trade union, what else are you going to do to get your econemy back on track?

Well, its just going to take some time.

Before the Union/REDSTAR War, the Wexxian economy was powered by the Licentia Station’s Stellar Harvester; a massive device capable of drawing mater from a Neutron Star and transforming it into whatever materials they needed. It was directly connected to the Station’s factory floor, so they could produce up to five Champion capital class ships PER DAY!

Now there are only twelve Champions in service and the economy is going through a rough time adjusting from Glorious Reclamation… to Under Average!

They are expanding their industry rapidly, but it will take a long time before they will be able to make a new City Station equipped with a Stellar Harvester. Even with all the volunteers and sponsors, their allies have gathered. The “Shelter the Wexxians” foundation is the third largest known charity organisation in the quadrant.

whatever you do...don't kill them off!

Don’t worry, they are not in any immediate danger.


Nice one there Brandonazz, what would have happened if the Torpals had never become good guyes…

...

The Halcyon war could maybe be won… maybe not...

Most Wexxians would have died before even getting any fighting done, as the Originator Station was destroyed at the Defeat at Thishen.

Azuron was newer terraformed.

Only one Wexxian survived… Nemesis, who was smart enough to get away when his hippie cousins began annoying the Halcyon Cooperation.

Nemesis befriends the Necromicon and gives them technology to begin a campaign of destruction across the galaxy.

Nemesis rallies the Torpals as allies, promising them glorious battles beyond their wildest dreams.

With his allies, Nemesis destroys the Halcyon Cooperation… the Halcyon Parasite is biologically re-engineered to ensure loyalty to Nemesis alone.

With the power of the parasite, combined with a slave “Over-Deity-of-Fear”; Nemesis gains control over his allied in a violent betrayal.

With an army of slaves, Nemesis declares war on the rest of the galaxy. Thousands of planets are desolated, even more are enslaved to feed his army and create more weapons of despair.

No method is to low and nothing is sacred to the Betrayer, after meeting the REDSTAR he again puts on a mask of deception. He convinces the REDSTAR leader that their ideals are similar. And offers to pledge his allegiance to him.

When they meet for negotiations, Nemesis tears the leader into shreds and proclaims himself ruler over REDSTAR. Many join under his banner… those who don’t; are massacred in front of their families.

By fear, mind-control and mad ambitions; Nemesis becomes the first ever ruler of the sector… and he expands rapidly.

Species he conquers, who are not advanced enough to be of use to him are terminated.

Weakness becomes a crime, punishable by genocide.

Nemesis’s Reign of Terror has begun…

I just realiced that I only ever explained the position of the Monarch... never the rest of the Wexxian Government.


The Wexxian Government; the High Council.

In the Wexxian government, the Monarch is the Voice of the Nation and he is the one who interprets the votes of the people. Yet the issues to be voted upon are decided, by not only the Monarch, but also the High Council.

The High Council is the collection of overseers who administer the nation in different areas of focus.

The High Council consist of seven individuals, considered experts on their areas.

Overseer of Foreign Affairs:

A most important position, as the Wexxians are always involved with a wide range of species. The OoFA spends a lot of his time meeting with representatives of alien nations.

Overseer of the Military:

Usually an admiral, the OotM is the military’s seat in the government. Most military decisions are proposed by the OotM.

Overseer of Infrastructure:

One of the only positions directly concerned with the Wexxian nation; it concerns everything from nano engineering, to terraforming. The OoI proposes most new expansion plans.

Overseer of Technology:

Propositions concerning the directions of scientific study of the Wexxian nation are most often proposed by the OoT.

Overseer of Justice:

The least important Overseer… simply because the OoJ has very little to do. Wexxians are not really lawbreakers, but for the sake of the Wexxian High Court, the OoJ has a seat in the Council.

Overseer of Shadows:

The OoS is never mentioned to any outsiders… the affairs of the Spec-Ops and the Shades are represented by this council member. Best not to say more… I don’t want to get arrested.

Overseer of Culture:

Unlike the rest of the positions, the OoC is most often held by young individuals. The OoC is always active in expanding the Wexxian culture and make their society more complex.



Random trivia: the Wexxian laws do not state that you have to be Wexxian to be a member of the High Council… only that you have to be qualified!
By the way, the position as Overseer of Foreign Affairs, is open since the previous OoFA; Al-Sekar, became Monarch.

Do you mean like a hive-mind?

Yes, it is possible for Wexxians to extend their communication with others, unto a point where they are almost the same mind. Although this has some advantages, the Wexxians pride themselves with individuality and have a tendency to keep from that level.

Hey, how would one apply to be a member of the council? Do the wexxians have like, a phone number you call or something.

The applicant would have to send his/hers resume to the Wexxian Government… the number is in the phonebook! Mind you that the applicant would have to be very highly qualified to be chosen over the Wexxian applicants.

In the case of the OoFA. The applicant will be representing the Wexxian nation in the Senate, negotiate treaties, trade routes and will often be called to assist in First Contact with young species.

Hush Jack! Now your enemies know exactly who to assassinate!

This was never meant to be a secret, I just forgot to write it on the forum!

Besides, who would kill Wexxian Politicians?… Don’t answer that!

It wouldn’t do any good anyway, Wexxians are not dependant on their politicians… they are quite capable of handling an assassination.

Before I leave for two weeks in Crete, I want to make a long overdue update for all of my fans to enjoy.  :P

Wexxian Physiology;
The Engineering of the Robotic Wexxians Shells.

(http://img457.imageshack.us/img457/772/computercoreni9.png)

The Wexxian Computer Core:

To someone who is no familiar to the concept of optical computers, the Wexxians Computer Cores will look like nothing more than fancy crystals with computer attachments. Indeed, to people who are experts in the obscure field of the optical computers, the central computer core still makes the cleverest of heads, spin with confusion.

The main part of the Computer Core is the crystal, not the electronic attachments. The electronic part of the core’s job is to send and receive information from the crystal and the rest of the Shell.

Nano-sized light signals are continuously send and received by the crystal. The signals are send through millions of facets while they direct, and are at the same time directed by, other signals.

Unlike many other computers, the by-products of the signals send through the crystal are not a mistake… but a crucial part of the internal communications of the crystal. When the light-signals pass through the crystals billions of facets, they leave a little amount of heat whitish decide what direction the next signals are going to take. When signals collide with each other, they also change directions. These traits make the internal communication of the core possible and make it one of the fastest and most capable computers in the galaxy.

In order to understand the complexity of the core… one would have to make a scanning of the entire crystal with accuracy, bordering on the atomic. As well, as establish an understanding of the movement of the signals. As the Core is extremely complex, it would take about 150 standard years of intense research for most of the major species to learn the full secrets of the Wexxians computers.

Your skills are truly amazing Jack. If you really want to challenge yourself, start adding some complex textures. After you mastered that, some dynamic lighting.

But it still looks amazing nonetheless. Very intracate and detailed.

Yes, very nice. I'm sure Mialin scientist would love to get their hands on one of those. They'd probably figure it out a few years sooner than 150 years however, since something like this would attract most of the scientific community in the Sphere, and most of their population is scientific. I wish I was that good...

Thanks Gec and Snake! It means a lot to me.  ;D

I just realised it looked a little like a certain pokemon :P that’s completely coincidental… the shape is entirely created by my own tendency to create intricate geometry… I can’t help it… its just fun!

I would have imagined that someone would have applied a candidate for the Overseer of Foreign Affairs, in the Wexxian High Council. I thought it would give great RP possibilities if the Wexxians where represented in the Galactic Senate by a member of another species.  ;)

I think Hiatus is putting it mildly…  :(

Sorry guys, I had really looked forward to getting back, but the sad fact is that I don’t have the strength left to carry on the legacy of the Wexxians.  :'(

Things are so much different now that I am no longer in school. Between working eight hours a day looking at millions of disgusting butter-cookies in the local factory, leaving the school and getting far away from the many friends I have there and my girlfriend dropping the “just friends” brick on my head… I have kinda lost the “spark” that made the Wexxians what they where.  :-[

I have been avoiding the forum for a long time, because I feel guilty of letting you all down…  :-[ but I think you should at least know the reason why the words “Our eternal love to all!!!” no longer pollute the RP corner of the forum!

I am officially withdrawing the Wexxians from the Role Playing Universe!

I don’t know if I still can keep expanding their culture… with them, it was always their interaction with others that made them special… well… also a bit annoying… actually, mostly annoying… but still special!

Next week I will be moving into my first apartment. I’m getting a fresh start in another, larger town, where I can get a decent job… whenever I will return to the forum; I don’t know!

It has been my honour and privilege to have been part of this forum… this monument to imagination!  :)

I have seen the great battles, fought for ideals, freedom and love, by giant machines of war, and I trembled in my chair.

I have heard the crying sobs of a small child, lying over its parent, killed by marauders, and I wept with the child.  :'(

I have read the writings of Arika Mei Wu, of the Auyuelcliads and I learned great wisdom.

I have learned the potential of a single being and of the importance of making difficult decisions.

I have seen a suns first dawn on a terraformed planet, through the haze of rain and mist, and it was beautiful.  :)

I have heard of Naucean Backrubs… and it REALLY FREAKED ME OUT!!!  :o

Salutations to all of you out there in the world, who help making this great universe come to life in all its diversity… the artists, the poets, the writers, the plotters, and all them who are always offering encouragement when needed and constructive criticism when its due!  :)

I salute you all!

Man Jack I’ll sure miss you in the lovable Wexxians. Though they were indeed buggers a few times they were the true heart of our galaxy, the call of justice and love when all other races went mad on ideologies greed and xenophobia.

It’s so sad to see the giants of this forum having to go, I truly believe you were the member who contributed the most to this fanfic universe in so many lairs. I really hope newer members will use the great setting you left behind and know us “elder” ones will always do.

But as Opera said your legacy will still be carried on, and the Wexxians always have a place in our universe to carry on their holy work of love and if you will return I’m sure it will be as glories as ever.

I really understand your decision as I myself has less and less time as the months passes by and I know how hard it feels to see your race and the great works of imagination you worked on in stand by and wishing you could expand more but never having the time or sometimes even the spirit to do it.

So good luck old friend, it was a pleasure fighting you, fighting with you, building alliances with you, sharing thoughts and ideologies with you, and most importantly creating with you. Good luck with your fresh start!

it's been fun Jack, it's been fun  :)

Actually I am thinking of writing them out of the universe with a short RP to explain why and how they would be gone… existing in the background of the galaxy without interfering with wars and all that, just isn’t the Wexxian way of doing things… they are too meddling for that!

If you guys think that’s a bad idea, then tell me.

I think I'm going to work on a second tribute to the Wexxians.

If you look in the dictionary under “The Wexxians no. 1. Fan” you find Brandonazz’s picture. Always greatly appreciated mate!  :)

Hate to see you go, Jack.  You and the Wexxians were always friendly to new members and young races.  Good luck in real life, and maybe you can find the time to visit now and then.

Yes the Wexxians where buggers… they had to be; their place in the galaxy is to be that little annoyance that keeps the wheels turning and the ideas coming…

The thing about freedom is that, when you stop fighting for it, you loose it. Even it you had it before.

Good luck with your apartment and (here's hoping) a new job.

I am currently working as a substitute for various companies in the city, often very dull manual labour… I hope to find a steady job soon so I can get my daily life under control. The only good thing is that my jobs often leave me plenty of time to think about stuff while I do the dull jobs, so I often fall back into the old pattern and explore different thoughts about the Wexxians… storylines, ships, characters, alternate universes and technologies. Whenever I will ever get back to RP’ing again is another question.

I would like to make one last RP to let the Wexxians leave… the story would be:

1. The Wexxians learn that some of their creators may have survived the great war in the ancient times and have escaped to a faraway galaxy.

2. The Wexxians gather their people, their fleet and their RIT generators among their partially built new City-Station near Hatia and say their goodbyes to their old friends and allies.

3. With the combined power of the City-Station and the RIT Generators, the Wexxians RIT-Jump to the galaxy that their creators might have migrated to. They leave behind their RIT generators to be used by the other species.

If you don’t think it would be a good idea. Let me know… I think it would be a reasonable explanation to their disappearance and it would make it possible for them to one day return. I also like the way this could expand their psyche, concerning their relationship with their creators.


If not, I still have some updates coming up for thread.

Their originality, their passion for peace, and most especially, their love for other races.
Even though we weren't able to formally meet each other, your creations' concern for others really rubbed on my creatures. :'(
We'll miss your critters in RP a lot. :'(

Though, my guys, the Terran-Ixians need plenty of help on their mission, since they go from galaxy to galaxy helping other worlds and guiding them to a peaceful coexistence with others, maybe the Wexxians would like to help us in our mission? If so, it would be much appreciated. :).

The idea for the small (hopefully much bigger) RP is great. It would make more snese for them to have a small (large) send-off before they go.

Opera, I hear you man, but what would be sadder… a galaxy without the Wexxians, but still with their ideals to remember… or a galaxy where the Wexxians still are there, but passive and inactive.  :-\

Being Wexxians, they would never manage to stay quiet for long… you know them… they can’t help themselves. Always meddling, interfering, questioning, commenting and getting into trouble because they can’t keep their mouths shut!  ;)

If I ever get the spark back, then it would be easier to let them return from their expedition than just letting them jump back into politics after a little vacation in the outer rim, with a: “Oh, so what have you guys been up to while we where chilling?”   :P

Thanks for the comments Yuu, I just read up on the Terran-Ixians… good stuff! I’m sure them and the Wexxians would be best of friends.

Just to prove that I’m not all dead yet, I bring you here a little piece of history… a good thirty standard years before the Wexxian Reclamation. A story of the meeting of two people. Two people who will change the future of their people… as well as the future of the galaxy. No fancy pictures… neither any gargantuan fleets… just a story… of how two people met. Two people who came of to a REALY bad start with each other!
 

Preview of a possible future continuation of The Axon Chronicles:


Tow Ky Juhl; the Torpal Squad Leader of Combat Group 1024 of the Celvolian Mercenary Army, lead his group through the maze-like UC (Urban Combat) Training ground. His group was a collection of different species, Tow didn’t know whish species they where, but he knew his men. He had trained and fought with all of them… sure, they where not Torpals, but they where HIS squad… and he knew they took pride in being so.

Tow’s Combat Group was the best, everyone knew that… therefore is was troubling that their Celvolian employers had ordered this training mission.

‘What’s the catch here?’ the young Torpal thought. ‘What kind of surprise have they hidden here?’

The group moved silently in the shadows of the large and partially destroyed buildings in the training ground. Both Tow and his men had been there before, but this time it was different… it was too quiet!

He gestured soundlessly to his men and they spread out in a wide search grid to cover more ground. Like all good Torpal soldiers, Tow had neither fear of death or battle, but this tense silence made him very uncomfortable. While he adjusted his shoulder-canon, he gestured to his team to stay in sight. They all nodded in agreement.

It was certain that they would encounter someone… or something. Tow had overheard some of their employers talking about “testing” their newest addition. But what this addition was, Tow did not know. He kept a vigilant eye on his six squad members and their surroundings.

Tow nearly hurt his neck when he turned fast, thinking he’d heard something… but there was nothing there. Just more broken buildings and machines in partial shadows.

‘Nothing!’ Tow turned back to his men, they where all aiming their weapons at the direction he had just turned to.

‘What the…’ It took Tow a few seconds to realise that something was wrong… he could only see four of his men…

“Where’s Lad and Q’ti?” he growled to the four remaining mercenaries. They all looked around and their faces grew worried.

Out of the corners of his eyes Tow saw more movement. “REGROUP!” Tow barked to his men. No point in keeping quiet now. Whatever it was, it clearly knew where they where.

His men hurried together in a tighter formation… but they where now only three left, including Tow. None of them had seen what took the others.

“By Zesh!” Tow gasped, a little stab of worry piercing through his trained mind for a second… it was quickly replaced by fury. ‘NOBODY SNEAKS UP ON MY SQUAD!’

“Tri-Point defence grid!” he instructed his remaining two men but the moment he turned to put his back to theirs, he heard to yelps and managed to turn just in time to se Velquittos and J’pas disappear into the darkness between two crumbling buildings.

Tow stormed after them but it was a dead end. And there was no trace of his comrades.

“WHERE ARE YOU?” he shouted in fury. “SHOW YOURSELF!”

A laughter reached Tows ears. “Why should I… when I’m having such a good time?”

If possible, Tow’s rage increased in strength… This insolent thing was MOCKING HIM!

His senses sharpened by adrenaline and rage, Tow heard a tiny sound of movement.

Instincts, formed by thousands of years of Torpalian warrior traditions and a decade of tough training in the army, kicked in. Literally! Without having to think about it, Tow circle-kicked backwards.

With satisfaction, Tow felt his armoured foot collide sharply with something.

Spinning around to face his mysterious foe, Tow dropped into a fighting stance to see his would be assailant flying through the air, propelled by his kick.

Despite having been kicked with the force of a charging Necromonicon, the figure did a back flip in midair and landed gracefully on his feet. Prompting an involuntarily raised eyebrow from Tow.

“The told me you where good, I’m glad you don’t disappoint!” The figure said, crouching in another stance.

“Who in Zhesh’s name are you?” Tow asked, trying to measure up his opponent. The figure was apparently bipedal and a bit shorter stature than Tow, it had two visible arms and a single head in a humanoid shape. It was difficult to know for certain as the being was dressed in what looked like a collection of dirty rags and a large hooded cloak that hid the face in shadows.

“Who am I?” the being asked in a mock questioning voice. “Philosophical, aren’t you? How about some more simple questions before we start about the meaning of life?” 

Tow smiled as he saw that the hands of the being where empty… it was unarmed. ‘He is fast. I wonder HOW fast!’ Tow wondered.
“I have one… can you dance?” Tow grinned as his shoulder-cannon charged and fired.

“HA!” The being laughed, jumping backwards and sideways. Dogging the shots Tow fired, while clouds of debris formed where the shoots hit.

While doing a sideways spinning jump, to evade a barrage from the cannon, the figure reached into his robes. Tow saw a brief flash of metal spinning towards him before his shoulder-cannon was decapitated by a flying blade.

“You will have to do better than that fuzz-ball!” the cloaked figure taunted the enraged Torpal.

Tow looked at the smoking remains of his trusted weapon. It was damaged, but not beyond repair. The split second it took him to make that assessment, the cloaked figure had used to launch himself against Tow.

Tow looked back just in time to receive a flying kick to the middle of his chest. Leaving a small dent, in his armoured breastplate. Tow staggered backwards a few steps and retaliated with two straight right hooks… the being blocked the top one… but not the lower one!

The two combatants kept at it. Both refusing to surrender. Tow being large, heavy and strong and the attacker being small, light and fast… the two where reasonably balanced. The attacker could easily doge most of Tows blows and Tow’s natural toughness and his armouring deflected most of what the cloaked fighter came with.

Once again, Tow delivered a double uppercut. Sending the being flying.

‘WHY WON’T HE STAY DOWN?’ Tow thought as the cloaked figure rose again. Fatigue was beginning to drain his strength, his fur was sweaty and dirty from dust and sand and he could taste blood in his mouth from a couple of loose teeth. He could see that the fight was wearing his opponent out too… the cloaked figure was shaking slightly and was swaying a little.

Still refusing to give up… the two warriors prepared themselves for another round.

“BRAVO!” a voice cried, snapping the combatants out of their mental battle of endurance. Both looked over to see the small shape of their employer, clapping his hands. “its good to see that you too have gotten to know each other!”

“What the…?” Tow began, but was cut off by the short Celvolian. “Squad Leader Tow! This is our new employee; he has offered to aid our army with his special abilities… for a price, of course!”

Tow eyed the cloaked warrior with suspicion… sure he was skilled… and tough, but… “What kinds of special abilities?” he asked with a hint of tension in his voice.

The mysterious cloaked fighter raised two clawed grey hands and removed his hood. Revealing a clearly non-biological face with three black lenses for eyes.

“I’m quite multitalented… and adaptable!” the being said. His face changing, morphing into a reptilian face with a smirking predatory smile.

“A MACHINE!” Tow roared with disgust. “Honourless abomination of metal!”

The figures smile turned into a scowl. “That’s MISTER Honourless Abomination of Metal, to you Torpal… but you can call me Axon for short!” the warrior growled menacingly.

The Celvolian smiled brightly to the two combatants. “I’m sure you will have plenty of time to get to know each other, as I’m assigning mister Axon here, to your unit mister Tow! Where are the rest of your team, by the way?”

“WHAT?” both warriors shouted, looking with incredulity at their minute employer.

“No, uh uh! I work alone, man!” the robot named Axon said, shaking is head.

“I decide who’s on my team! You won’t put that freak on the squad!” Tow shouted, making the small alien step back.

“We are the ones who pay for your services!” the Celvolian said trying to sound braver than he was. “WE decide what happens… and you follow our orders if you wish to receive your pay check!”

For a moment, Tow seriously considered if it would be worth it to loose his job for knocking down his boss… but thought better of it.

“Now, where is the rest of Combat Group 1024?” The alien asked again, confident that he had made his point.

The scruffy warrior pointed towards one of the ruined buildings around them. “Unconscious, op on the roof!” he said in a growling voice.

“Excellent!” Their employer clasped his hands together. “I expect your team to be ready to move out in three hours, mister Tow! Oh, yes… welcome in the Celvolian Mercenary Army. I’m sure you will feel right at home mister Axon!”

Their employer turned and left the two combatants scowling at each other.

"You may be able to fight, but you're still just a droid..." Tow growled.

“And you are still just another meat-bag with an attitude!” Axon shot back.



Two warriors; dirty and beaten. Two antagonists; despising each other. Two destinies; meant for greatness!!!!

Thanks for the replies... I'd imagined that fever would have commented, as I often write too much in one shot.

I realize now that I have used the "Just another Meatbag with an attitude" remark before... Axon's son Zelato said that exact same remark to King Cortan Tesilia before the REDSTAR rebelion. Just the same, its still a great insult... You know that the Wexxians don't like somebody when they call them "meatbag"... I mean; they REALY don't like them!


After a long time, I finally pulled myself together to make a Wexxian Flag/Symbol/Insignia.

The Royal Insignia of The Democratic Monarchy of the Reborn Robotic Wexxians:

(http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/9572/wexxiansymbolue2.jpg)

Now I have something to paint on my ships!  ;)

The background symbolizes the galaxy. The two purple lines reprecent Freedom and Life. The Three circles on the upper line represents Axon, Elixe and Zelato as the three most honored Wexxians in history. The Shape and composition of the overall insignia is also meant to be similar to the appearance of the standart Wexxian Youth Shell as most know to reprecent all Wexxians because all Wexxians start their lives with a Youth Shell.

Now remember to vote on the Wexxians sendoff from the RP universe!

Allow me to share with you all the first ever sketch I made of a Wexxian... more than a year and a half ago, back when I didn't even know what name I should give my new species.

I sat and doodled at my computer in Paint (Because that was ALL that I could work with back then) And I came up with this:

Title: Re: The Robotic Wexxians
Post by: Jack Zetter on November 11, 2007, 09:18:03 am
Just a minor update, because I have never really explained the Wexxians naming system.

Wexxian names are all unique, consisting of:

The Descendent name - the Origin name – the Generation Number – The Sibling Number.

Many of the Reborn Wexxians since the Reclamation have taken the habit of “Nicknames” a practice that is a further development of the Descendent name. A little known bit of trivia is that the first Wexxian ever to use a nickname or a pseudonym was the infamous Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45, best known to the galaxy as Nemesis.

If we explain the Wexxian names it’s best to start with the Origin name; the Origin name is the Wexxian equivalent of a surname/family name/clan name… The Origin name is the part of the names that changes most rarely.

The Descendent name is referring to direct lineage making it more specific than the Origin name. The Descendent name runs through the family by the “firstborn.” Every time a family branch out with more than one offspring, the oldest sibling’s offspring keep their old D. name, while the offspring of the younger sibling are given an entirely new D. name to continue in their own family line.

There have been examples of Wexxians who have been given two Descendent names, because of their parentage. This is because the offspring’s parents have numbered only two and that none of them has had any other offspring… there are pages of procedures on how to name younglings in special circumstances.

The Generation Number is the number of generations since the Descendent name was given. Meaning that the first offspring of a younger sibling will automatically be given the G.N: 01!

The Sibling Number is only given when there are more than one offspring to a parent. It simply specifies what Sibling is the oldest and so on.

The Nicknames are both a way to simplify names for organics who often have a hard time remembering the long names as well as it is a way for the Wexxian in question to decide their own identity. They consider their pre-given names as designations and not true names. Therefore they fashion themselves new names. This moves on to become a Descendent name in some cases.

EXAMPLE:

Tagan-Enerva-59-2 "Axon" (Yup! I will not just let him rest in peace!)

We can see from the name that Axon is the second sibling in the fifty-nine generation since Tagan and that he belongs to the Enerva clan. These names originate around two hundred years earlier in the Necromicon War. The Enerva was a Champion Cruiser and Tagan was the last captain. After the final battle, the ship dragged its derelict hull to the outer rim and the descendants of Tagan lived in it until Axon.

Now, since Axon was the second sibling any descendants of his WOULD have been named: “Axon-Enerva-01-1” but as Axon’s older brother was killed before having any offspring; Axon kept the old family name and gave it on to his children: Elixe(Tagan-Enerva-60-1) and Zelato(Tagan-Enerva-60-2). The name later transferred to Al-Sekar(Tagan-Enerva-61-1) while Zelato’s child was designated as “Zelato-Enerva-01-1”

Thank you for reading all this boring stuff!

I’m glad you want the Wexxians to be happy Yuu. I know they appreciate it!

I don’t know if their eventual reuniting with their creators will be such a happy event… I mean… the Targ S’etskarp who built the mining robots that became the Wexxians where not the most… I… they… THEY WHERE REAL A**HOLES! They where forced to try to escape the galaxy because their “pull my finger” jokes often involve planetary destruction. They only did ONE good thing ever… make the Wexxians… and that wasn’t even on purpose!

Still… the Wexxians want to know what happened to them, and who can blame them... it’s the closest thing these guys have to biological parents. It’s natural they will want to find them, confront them… ask them; “How are you doing?” “Why did you never call?” and “Did we do well enough? Do we make you proud?”

The Wexxians are one of the few species who where created by others… and they where left! Sure, they weren’t sapient back then, but it’s still hard to be abandoned by ones parents. As much as it is illogical, it is one of the things that haunt the deeper levels of the Wexxians psyche and it is one of the main reasons for their minority complex. A feeling deep down that they just weren’t good enough.

Even though there is no species less suited to judge the Wexxians… they still have a little whish to be recognised by their creators, someone to tell them that they did good!

Still, they left before the Nauceans got out the primordial soup… no telling if they survived the trip to another galaxy… let alone the many years since!

Even though The Pranksters are kinda bad, I feel really happy for the Wexxians if they find them. I just hope they get along well, though very uncertain because of their contrasting views.

I just hope they don't end up like my guys. :-\
The Terran-Ixians were forced to fight their beloved masters, whom they served with utter devotion, for the greater good. In the end, the Terran-Ixians also want their masters to change their ways, so they won't need to fight each other. :-\
Sad story. :'(

Post by: Jack Zetter on November 11, 2007, 12:46:57 pm
If the creators try something on the Wexxians, they are going to get their A$$ whooped. Creators or not, YOU DO NOT MESS WITH THE WEXXIANS! They may be hippies, but if you bug them, they can still place a solid Zero-Point-Powered foot in your rear!
You don’t have to worry about the Wexxians.  8)  ;)


I can see that most want the final RP, but few really want to see the Wexxians go… So I’m thinking about an alternative. Like, the fleet and most of the Wexxian people join the expedition. However, some of the people stay behind on the Wexxian worlds… the people of Hatia, the Shadow Station and its operatives all over the galaxy, and a few others who does not want to leave their organic friends or perhaps even family behind.

I have not thought it out completely yet, but give me some feedback so I know what you thing of this compromise.

...

Just because this post isn’t supposed to become all politics… I hereby give you some Wexxian Quotes… dug out from the old RP days. Some are funny, some are cool, and a few are just weird. Many of them are of Axon… and the reason for that is incidentally also best explained by himself:


“When things get as bad as a shaved Torpal… stay calm and say something cool!”

-Axon, giving his son Elixe advice.



“I will never fear, never doubt… I will never stop! Nobody is going to rampage the galaxy as long as I still live and my people stand by their ideals.

I am Axon… I am a Wexxian! And I will do my duty… whatever it takes!”


-Axons speech to the Jang.



“There is no decision, I am what I am and I do what I do!”

-Axons comment of his commitment to fighting the Catalyst.



“I won’t become like you, I will die as I was while I lived… as a Wexxian!”

-Axon’s last words.



“Some choose their paths in life, for others the path chooses them, but no mater what, I believe that all have the potential to great things!”

-Axon; in his memorial speech.



”You have said that we Wexxians cannot exist according to logic. There is a rule when considering logic, all events in a closed space will be logic if you have all the information to calculate the events with, therefore will events seam illogical if you do not know all the information. The only way to see the universe as logical is if you have all the information about it, but the amount of information about the universe is nearly infinite and therefore impossible to know. Therefore the Universe will always seem illogical!”

-Unknown Wexxian; The Theory of Non-Logic. Explained during the negotiation with Machine One.



“The love of the Wexxians is free to all who want it, but our respect is earned, by giving us the same respect!”

-Alpha-Zeti-211; First Wexxian King.



“With It we can crush our enemy's in waves of gravity, and sweep the galaxy clean of unworthy species!”

-Taga-Omnius-Qesto-45; Nemesis; About the Originator.



"Shut up and let me drive!"

-Axon.



“Fire some warning shots at the most populated parts of the planet, We want them to know we are here!”

-Nemesis.



“Nobody expects the Wexxian inquisition!”

-Axon; the 1. Battle of Vii.



”We could destroy them all now but that would leave no one to tell of us. Fear is a useful ally in a war like ours. Now FIRE!”

-Nemesis.



“I, Tagan-Enerva-59-2, captain of the Nova-Prime, and acting Protector-of-the-Wexxian-Species, hereby claim this station in the name of the Wexxian civilisation and dub it; The Licentia Station.
Spread the message through hyperspace to the nomad convoys… Friends, we have a new HOME!!!”


-Axon’s legendary address to the Neo-Wexxians: The definitive start of the Wexxian Age of Reclamation.



“I didn’t understand any of that, but I don’t like the word unstable! Unstable, HOW?”

-Axon.



“Damn it, why has there never been a precursor species that realised the awesome power of instruction manuals!”   

-Axon.



“Glass the planet… slowly!”

-Nemesis.



“I want those Torpals to understand that when a Wexxian ask them to back off, THEY BETTER BACK OFF!!!”

-Axon; During the Olympia Crisis.



“Now you must make a decision; we can sit down and settle our differences in a peaceful way… Or you can open fire and solve it the easy way. But if you decide so, know this: You will have too shoot us down first. My crew and I will rather die before we let you make another Xometrian or Torpal child an orphan… Now choose!”

-Axon; transmission to the commanders of the Xometrian and Torpal battleships during the Olympia Crisis.



“One thing said about most elected leaders; they are rarely the brightest stars in the nebula!”

-Ellipsis-Como-24-7



“Remember the Founding Code! Mercy is our weapon, defence is our attack!”

-Axon: to the Zakraa; The 1. Battle of Olympia.



“We will never be gone if you remember our Ideals!”

-Unknown Wexxian.



“The one, who scarifies his freedom for safety, will receive neither!”

-King Elixe.



“Night is falling
Only a dream remains
A dream of better times and better days
A dream of peace
Night is falling!“


Commander Exylon; Last words on board the Licentia. Wexxian Death Poem.



“I did not come here to beg… today you made two great mistakes; firstly, threw away the only chance you ever would get to stop us! Secondly, the only one capable of convincing my two brothers to go easy on you is me… and you are putting me in a difficult position to convince them not to skin you alive”

-Elixe to Duesschard, when Elixe was arrested by REDSTAR.



“In peace; one should be humble, calm and wise, but in war; one should be swift, vigilant and cunning!”

-Axon.



“No mater what conflicts and crisis’s we will face in the future, always remember today as at least a single day where we could look at each other and name ourselves brothers.”

-Jelal; speech to the New Union representatives at the Vii Deux ceremony.



Some may sound familiar because I have stolen them from movies... but it’s a long time since I wrote them. I just went through my old posts to see if there was any good stuff... so here it is! I hope you like it.

Well we would always bare the Wexxian ways in our minds. Though we were great enemies of the Wexxians once, we were also their greatest friends in other times. We have both learned much from each other. Also the union would always try to keep the legacy of the old days so all of our old friends wouldn’t be forgotten.

Time for a major update… finally I give you:


Hatia City

(http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/5664/hatia1wn6.jpg)

The Capital of the Wexxian Civilisation and the only planet based colony of the Robotic Wexxians. The City was build shortly before the Union war where the Wexxians, fearing the escalating tensions between the Protectors Alliance and the Grand Union, built the city on the terraformed planet; Hatia.

The planet and the City where meant as a fall-back point… should the escalation lead to war… which it did!

Originally, the city was built as a relocation facility where fugitives from any potential war could escape to… However, with the beginning of the war, the destruction of the Licentia, the death of Lord Axon and the forced exile of the Protectors… the city was re-designed to serve as a command centre for the Wexxians and the refugees. From the top to bottom, the city was rebuilt on a new principle.

(http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/9940/hatia2qr8.jpg)

The City was built for efficient defence, should the planet ever be found by the forces of REDSTAR. The City is 40 kilometres/24,85 miles in diameter and built in a complete circle around the city centre spaceport.

The City consists of five superstructure sized buildings that reach as far into the air as they reach underground.

(http://img254.imageshack.us/img254/190/hatiasideej4.jpg)

The middle superstructure is the colossal spaceport; built 20 Kilometres/12,43 miles in diameter and rising up to 7 Km/4,35 mi above the ground level of the city. The spaceport has three large landing decks with landing spaces for vessels up to almost 2 km in length. As the largest atmosphere entering vessels known to Wexxians are “only” 1,6 km long, the Wexxians planed ahead to future developments.

(http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/8647/hatiaspaceportrt2.jpg)

The remaining four superstructures make up the surrounding city. The structures hold everything from factories to living spaces. As everything else they where built to with stand siege, even if the shields should fail. Nowadays mostly the outer parts of the structures are inhabited as there is no imminent danger of war. In stead, the Wexxians have for the last many years since the end of the war, been building a more proper city, on top of the fortress. The older structures make good foundations for newer buildings. The Wexxians’ well known crystalline architecture now graces the city skyline.

(http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/4138/hatiaskylieji5.jpg)

Surrounded by several strong shield emitters and powered by four Zero-Point Generators. The City was built to withstand heavy bombardment and a prolonged siege by REDSTAR forces. Should they ever find the planet, the city shield would ensure the safety of the inhabitants while the remaining fleet and the surrounding ground based Anti-Space batteries would fight against the invaders. All possible defensive systems where incorporated into the construction as the Wexxians knew that an invasion of Hatia would be the last stand if REDSTAR should ever find them.

Tow gun

The eight Anti-Space batteries surrounding the city are of a unique design, made specially for Hatia. They are named; Twin Obliteration Weapon Platforms, (T.O.W.) Platforms, or most often Tow Guns. The weapons are massive, being nearly one kilometre long each, they are capable of delivering a high velocity ionic charged plasma bolt, once every four seconds. Each bolt is capable of tearing through the outer hull of most known capital ships without much effort. The cannons are so large and powerful that the ground shakes in the city when they fire. The Tow Guns are the most powerful weapons ever created by the Wexxians and are appropriately named after a Torpal hero.

Luckily, REDSTAR never found Hatia, and while it sheltered refugees during the ten year long exile, many beings found a home in the city. The great ionic batteries around the city have never been activated and the inhabitants have created smaller settlements around the planet, outside the safety of the city shield.

Around in the city, there are seven large statues erected in memory of seven individuals who the Wexxians honour in remembrance of their lives and their deeds. Those remembered are:

Axon, the Reclaimer.
Tow Ky Juhl, the Torpal General.
Jago, the Thoon.
Zkek, King of the Zakraa.
Cortan Tesilia, King of the Auyuelcliads.
Elixe, the Exiled King.
Zelato, the Warrior Lord.

Enerva Tower

Hatia is also the seat of Enerva Industries, and their headquarters Enerva Tower. Enerva Industries is the Non-Military branch of the Wexxian Industry. Every time you start op your new personal computer with Wexxian chips, notice the little E.I. mark on the screen. E.I. is one of the galaxy’s leading producers of Computers, Engines, Vessels and various other Hi-Tech Gadgets.

Wexxian Holiday; Reclamation Day.

Each year in Hatia City, and on board the Wexxian Ships, Wexxians celebrate the Reclamation.

As all Wexxians know, the Reclamation was the turning point of the Wexxian species history. The definitive end to the darkest time in their history. Where the legendary leader Axon found the Licentia and lead the Wexxians back to greatness.

The Age of Reclamation ended a long time ago, yet the Wexxians still commemorate the event each year with a celebration and a nice holiday.

The Wexxians celebrate with huge displays of fireworks, gifts to friends and allies and a traditional parade of the fleet with a seven shot salute across the atmosphere in memory of heroes fallen. It is also tradition that the Wexxians invite dignitaries from all known species to a feast in Hatia on Reclamation day, with food and drinks to all.

The tradition began after the REDSTAR War and has continued ever since. Many small alliances have formed on Hatia under the influence of copious amounts of alcohol during Reclamation Day where thousands of dignitaries meet to party. Despite differences and minor wars, its tradition to put such squabbles behind, when people visit Hatia… this has sometimes meant that some factions refused to come because of their enemies where coming, but generally people come and behave nicely during their visit… the Wexxians don't tolerate troublemakers, and if anyone starts a fight… they spend the night in confinement to cool of, whenever they are a diplomat or the emperor of twenty systems! The Wexxians don't have diplomatic immunity incorporated into their legal system. It gave some trouble at first… but when the Wexxians began secretly putting calming stimulants in the Torpals drinks, most trouble subsided.

Security:
It is not always the big-shots of the galaxy that visits, sometime just representatives of the leaders. But Reclamation Day on Hatia is generally well populated with the leaders of the entire galaxy… some have voiced their concerns that such a gathering would attract a terrorist attack on the delegates, but the truth is that Hatia is very likely the safest place in the galaxy during Reclamation Day:
When the Delegates arrive in the system, the entire Wexxians fleet is assembled for their yearly refuelling and regrouping. That and the TOW batteries on planet Hatia make a conventional attack impossible unless the attackers have a dozen Death Stars or better. In the City, an Inertia Suppression Field renders explosives of harmful magnitude, completely disabled. A 12 megaton explosion would have the size of a large firecracker under the IS Field, and the City's Sensors would have identified the threat long time before any activation and responded by disassembling the explosive devise and capture the responsible. The Wexxians Security Measures cover every possible way of attack… as they where designed by Lord Axon and Lord Zelato.

As I have a tendency to write a lot of information without any sense of order in my stories, I have decided to post a profile for the character in today’s picture.

(http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/5619/kingjetasko9.jpg)

ID: Tagan-Enerva-68-1.
Name: Jetas.
Position: Democratic Monarch of the Reborn Wexxian Nation, Senior Protector of the Species. CEO of Enerva Industries.
Place of Origin: The Wexxian Capital Hatia.
Appearance: Tall and majestic.
Voice: Calm and comforting.
Personality: Leader by hearth… and he has a big hearth!
Intelligence: Medium… for a Wexxian!!! He is still beyond super genius by most species standards.
Ancestry: The great, times seven, grandson of Axon, grandson of Ceves and son of Veknos.
Ambition: To lead his people and protect the freedom and life’s of the universe.
Quote: “We all have to make difficult choices!”
Greatest Strength: His ancestry, his family and the Wexxian Base-Code.
Greatest Weakness: His compassion, his responsibility and the Wexxian Base-Code.
Description: Jetas has been the king of Wexxians for twenty years; he is greatly honoured for his good relations with other species. Especially with the Torpal Ky Juhl Clan who visits the royal family on occasions. Jetas has continuously over the last fifteen years done a great effort to make the galaxy less dependant on Wexxian influence… foreign aid has been outsourced to foundation created by Wexxians and then privatised.
The decision to leave the galaxy was made generations ago and Jetas has been working hard to ensure that the galaxy will be left in good care when they finally depart. Jetas knows that the last time the Wexxians diapered, they left a galaxy torn by the most devastating war in modern galactic history and it followed by a two hundred year long dark age!  Neither Jetas nor any other Wexxians believe that they are the reason for the Age of Decent, but Jetas is determined to ensure that it doesn’t happen again!

It is a Wexxian medal. It was used on another picture I drew... one of Axon. It was first ever mentioned more than a year ago after the battle of Thishen.

The Wexxians have three levels of that specific medal type!

The Wexxian Halo: Awarded to beings for services to the Wexxians.

The Wexxian Double Halo: Awarded to beings for extraordinary services to the Wexxians and sometimes for acts of bravery in combat.

The Wexxian Tri-Halo: Awarded to beings for acts of acts of suicidal bravery and near-insane commitment in combat... has been given to more Torpals than Wexxians... or for that mater, any other species.

The Halo medals has been used since the Halcyon War. There is another kind of medal that the Wexxians only give to organics.

The Wexxian Star: Awarded each year at Reclamation Day to beings who in their life have done great services to the Galaxy. Besides being named a Lord of Wexxians, or a Protector of the Species (A very rare thing) the Wexxian Star is one of the greatest recognitions the Wexxians can offer.

Post by: Jack Zetter on December 05, 2007, 08:58:22 am
Daan made the lovely flag that can be seen above; it is the flag of the Democratic Monarchy of the Robotic Wexxians… also known as the Classic Wexxians. The Classic Wexxians (Wexxian Ameus Alecus; literally meaning: “Servant that Thinks and Feels”) where the second species to proclaim the name Wexxian, they where the successors to The Robotic Wexxians… also known as the Initial Wexxians (Wexxian Ameus; literally meaning: “Servant that Thinks”) who where the first sapient species in the Wexxian “bloodline”

The Initial Wexxians did not have a flag… they where without emotions and would never have thought of representing their beings upon a piece of cloth or an emblem. But when they incorporated emotions into their programming and became the Classic Wexxians they became interested in art and the such… after the Halcyon War and the Colonisation of Azuron, the Wexxians decided upon this flag:

(http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k286/Aeven/wexxianflag.png)
Again, thanks to Daan.  :)

The Flag has three main elements: The Star, the Tower and the three Visual Sensors.

The Star represents Thishen; the home system of the Wexxians and the hearth of their nation, even at the high of their power, the Classic Wexxians never made colonies more than a few light-years away from Thishen. Despite having Recourses and reproductive capabilities to support a galaxy-spanning civilisation, the Classic Wexxians never expanded their territory out of respect for their neighbours. The Wexxians where sometimes hired as defensive forces by other species in the CAB (As long as it was only defensive, the Torpals where okay with it), something that later lead away from the Wexxians isolation as the Wexxians got used to living on the go, but the Classic Wexxians where definitely very attached to their ancestral home in Thishen.

The Tower represents Indigo City, the city the Wexxians build on their terraformed planet Azuron, thereby the Tower also represents the Wexxians love of all beings as the Wexxians terraformed the planet to give the refugees from the Halcyon War a home… it was all for those who had nowhere to turn that the Wexxians did it!

The three Visual Sensors represent the Wexxian people… as all adult Wexxians look different, they decided to take the characteristic pattern seen on Wexxian Youth Shells where they all look alike. Thereby it’s also a symbol of the Wexxians simple origins.


When the Classic Wexxians fell, and the Age of Decent began, the Wexxian bloodline changed again, this time into the species known as the Neo-Wexxians or the Dark-Wexxians to some! (Te-Ketar-Wexxian Ameus Alecus; literally meaning: “Servant Without Function that Thinks and Feels”) During the Wexxian Age of Desolation the few Wexxian survivors of the Genocidal Depression scattered to all corners of the galaxy… not being a united people, they did not have a flag… and with only shame to remind them of their ancestors they had no pride to ever try and make one.

With Axon and the Wexxian Reclamation; the Wexxian people changed again from the Neo-Wexxians to the Reborn Wexxians (Wexxian-Fevas Ameus Alecus; literally meaning: “Servant-of-All, that Thinks and Feels”) With restored faith in their people, the Reborn Wexxians created a new flag…

The Royal Insignia of the Democratic Monarchy of the Reborn Robotic Wexxians:

(http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/9572/wexxiansymbolue2.jpg)

The flag has also three main elements: The Circles, the Two Purple Lines and The background

The Circles is again the take the characteristic pattern seen on Wexxian Youth Shells, again a reference to the Wexxian people, the large circle in the middle represents the Wexxian people and the three smaller, on the upper line represents Axon, Elixe and Zelato as the three most honoured Wexxians in history.

The Two Purple Lines represent Freedom and Life as the Wexxians are bound by their Base Code to protect.

The Background represents the Galaxy. Revealing the biggest difference from the Classic Wexxians who where self confined to their home system.
When the Wexxians returned to Thishen after the Reclamation they discovered that Azuron and its inhabitants had become an independent nation having survived the chaos and wars of the dark age by staying neutral and utilising their key position near Beyond to become a strong economical power. While the “Thishans” where happy to see the Wexxians again the Wexxians could see that they where not needed much… after installing a new Zero-Point Reactor to cover the growing city’s power requirement as well as fixing some minor repair work, the Wexxians left again. The Reborn Wexxians are completely opposite the Classic Wexxians in the terms of their way of life. While the Classic Wexxians Rarely ventured out of their system, the Reborn Wexxians are scattered all over the Galaxy most of the time. Most of the Wexxian people live on board their Capital Ships and live as nomads across the stars, travelling among their friends worlds. The Wexxians only have one planet based home; Hatia. Therefore, Wexxian Space is rather small compared to most other species, but most of the Wexxians only visits Hatia once a year on Reclamation Day where the fleet regroups and refuels for the coming year. The Wexxians travel in convoys of one Champion and four Guardian Cruisers. Although the Wexxians large battleships can be intimidating, the Wexxians are generally never denied entry into a territory because of their image in the galactic opinion and because they usually bring trade with them both in Wexxian trade goods as well as traders from other species who travel with the Wexxians. On most worlds the Wexxians Ships are a welcome sighting on the sky, and some planets even have a national holiday to celebrate when the Wexxians show themselves.
Travelling, exploring, meeting new people… that’s the way of life for the Reborn Wexxians… that’s why the background represents the Galaxy… all of it is their home!

Just a small update today.

I have long been planning on making a Wexxian Writing system… but; as most who have tried such a thing can verify… it's damn difficult!  :-\

I'm about 70% finished with the symbols… and I've been working on it for one and a half year!  :P

I decided from the start that it should be based loosely on the Oifan-Umtag writing, but Ovi. only made numbers… so I based the Wexxians numbering system on theirs. Reason: the Oifan-Umtag where the first species that came into contact with the Wexxians.

The Oifan-Umtag number system:

(http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l27/Oviraptor85/Oifan-Umtag/NumberSystem.gif)

The Oifan-Umtag’s system is base twenty.

(http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/7338/wexxiannumbers1lb6.jpg)

Top: Wexxian Numbers.
Middle: Oifan-Umtag Equivalents.
Bottom: Human Equivalents.

The Wexxian assimilated the symbols into their culture but took a base ten system because they wanted a little difference from the origin… the form of the symbols also changed to fit the Wexxians while still withholding the essence of the original source. The number zero was changed most because of the significance of it.

Comments? Suggestions?

The Oifan-Umtag writing system is very very complex. It consists of hundreds of different letters, and I never felt like coming up with that many symbols. The most I can tell you that when writing, the two sounds they make are placed together in one letter, like a right side, left side sort of thing. Basically, their alphabet consists of every sound a human can make, but for each mouth, so it's like squaring that number. You can see why I didn't want to make it. ;)

Anyway, your number system looks good! :)

Trust me… the Wexxian Writing system would be ridiculously complex.  :P

The Wexxians can speak any language in the known galaxy if they have knowledge of it… their vocal processors can emulate any wavelength of sound and they can hear just as good. Meaning that the Wexxians can hear and speak tones that we cannot perceive.  ???
Also… The Wexxians did not use sound to communicate with at first… they used electronic signals… something in an entirely different league.  ??? >:( ???

I might as well give up trying to make an entire alphabet for the Wexxians as Chinese would have fewer symbols.
Anyway thanks for the comments, much appreciated!



Ancient Species: The Targ S’etskarp

Millions of years ago, before the Nauceans even came out of the oceans. The Galaxy was divided into several enormous empires, existing in relative good relations with each other. One of those empires where the Targ S’etskarp; the Great Pranksters!

Biology:
The Targ S’etskarp where a species of quadrupedal insectiods with four arms. Males where slightly smaller than females and had wings that develop during late puberty.

History:
The Targ S’etskarp evolved on the planet now known as Xefasto in the Vaas System. Today the this system is in an area known as Wild Space, but in the height of their glory, it was the sprawling metropolis of a grand empire. The planet is today a wasteland covered with sand and glass, but when the Pranksters evolved, it was a very lush planet of grasslands and steppes.

The Targ S’etskarp where forced to evolve sapience to protect themselves from a species of violent predators that hunted them. When they reached a stone-age level of development; they initiated focused hunts to exterminate the predators… within a few hundred years, they successfully eradicated the species. With no adversaries left to challenge them, their development would have become stagnant if it had not been for a flavour for gags and practical jokes that they developed. The Targ S’etskarp lived in great hive families for mutual protection before the hunts and social friction vas inevitable with so many, so close together. As defence against internal struggles that would leave them vulnerable; the Targ S’etskarp invented comedy and humour to survive. When the threats of the predators had disappeared, the humour became the fundamental drive of their scientific development. How to make newer, better, larger and more sophisticated elaborate jokes gave birth to engineering, physics, literature, art and all other aspects of their society.

The Targ S’etskarp where never quite warlike. Most wars begin because people get to focused on what they believe in and forget to have a sense of humour… but this was newer a problem for the Pranksters. Not that they where a model species either; When the Targ S’etskarp Empire was first born from the smaller hives, it was ruled hard by the Queen Empress and the Paternal Council. Executions and torture to keep the population in cheek was widely accepted… as long as they where fun to watch.

They reached space and it was a great day when a Targ S’etskarp in spacesuit wrote the first words of profanity in the soil of another planet. With hyperdrive they reached other species and eventually became a great empire, stretching nearly 1/8 of the galaxy at its peak.

While other species where confounded by the obsession the Targ S’etskarp had with jokes, they where gracious about it at first… unfortunately, now no longer a method of staying alive; the practical jokes would become the doom of the empire.

When the Targ S’etskarp learned to master Graviton technology they initiated their greatest prank ever. Their closest ally’s home world was contorted into the shape of a phallus for the amusement of the Queen… and the Galaxy had had enough! The other great species, pooled their recourses and invaded the Targ S’etskarp Empire and exterminated the species where they where found. It seamed that the TS Empire would die the same way as it had been born… with a great hunt.

Desperate, the TS began construction of three City-Stations to serve as lifeboats to another galaxy to start over. In order to gather enough recourses for this, they placed several mining stations in remote locations of the galaxy with semi-intelligent robots to mine for them. While they managed to complete construction of these stations… only one of them escaped to another galaxy, the second was never reached before the crusade came to Xefasto and glassed the planet. The third was destroyed.

With the Pranksters eradicated, the crusade continued to erase every trace of Targ S’etskarp culture or technology they could find. All of the mining stations where found and promptly destroyed… except one!

Whenever or not the Targ S’etskarp survived the journey to the other galaxy is unknown… there is only one known member of the Targ S’etskarp species in the last ten million years: Teaz Alwes-Enerva-01-2.

Targ S’etskarp Warrior

I drew this picture about two years ago when I was wondering what species to make when I would get spore. It is one of the Queen’s Honour Guards. The purple colour is the royal line and the golden shoulder braces are also indications of this individual’s status.

The weapon is a Qui’nall. It is mostly intended for ceremonial use: The being wielding the weapon fakes an attack with the bladed end… making the opponent focus on that end… Then strike the opponent in the groin with the blunt end and run away!

Not entirely. They left so many million years ago... what hapend to them?

Did they survive the transit to the other galaxy?

If they did, then what have happened to them since then?

Did they learn from their mistakes in this galaxy... or did they continue their malevolent path?

Is Teaz the last of his kind? Is he doomed to a life of loneliness... Or is he the first of a new beginning?


Plenty of mysteries left about the Creators... and I am the only being in the universe who know the answers! Mu ha ha ha!  ;D

Another random picture... a result on my relentless playing with SketchUp and Gimp.

In the Picture are the Two Guardian Cruisers; Tomorrow and Sunder, and the Guardian Cruiser Lord of the Infinite… And of course the good old flagship; the Independence!

Ahh… I love those ships! I know that the shadows aren’t right but no matter.

And a reminder… The Wexxians are leaving the RP universe… if you wish a last chance to talk or interact with them, then jump to “The Parting of the Wexxians” tread in the RP corner. Soon it will be too late!

On another matter… does anyone have suggestions or requests for the next update?

Thanks Yuu.  :)  I don't know about making Targ S’etskarp updates here... this is the Robotic Wexxians Tread... But Maybe I should make a tread for the S’etskarp, or my other creatures in general!  :-\

I'm glad you guys like the ships... they aren't new but I did make an update of the Independence. more smooth and with dockingbays and Royal Insignia of the Wexxian Nation.  :)

As always you can all find and download the ships on the Google SkechUp 3D-Warehouse. Either search after Wexxian, Jack Zetter or click the link below!

The Alitia Station:

(http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/9582/thealitiastationen1.jpg)

Type:
Wexxian Factory/City Station.
Size:
1800 km long.
Crew:
4,2 million Wexxians.
Weapons:
1500 T.O.W. Platforms. 2000 Mk-3 Heavy Subspace Ionic Disruptor Batteries. 2500 Subspace Ionic Disruptor Batteries. 700 Tractor Beam Emplacements. Ionic Graviton Utilisation of the Graviton Manipulator Nodes.
Defences:
Subspace Particle Shield Generators. Axonium Hull Plating. Nanite Enhanced Self-Repairing Hull.
Power Source:
6 Zero-Point Generators.
Engines:
Wexxian Inertia-Drive.
Special Systems:
Eight Graviton Manipulation Nodes. Mater Forge. Internal and External Teleportation Grid.
Description:
Since the Destruction of the Licentia, the Wexxians have been working on creating a new home for their kind among the stars. Although Hatia became the Wexxian Capital after the Union War, the Reborn Wexxians are nomadic by nature and have difficulties with staying the same place too long. It has taken a hundred years of work to gather resources and form them into the finest piece of Wexxian technology ever created.
The Alitia Station is not simply a copy of the Licentia, it is an embodiment of Wexxian technological supremacy and exceeds its precursor predecessor by far in many areas. Technologies such as Inertia-Drive and Ionic Graviton Utilisation where not invented by the Targ S’etskarp but even systems that the Licentia possessed are imbued with Wexxian ingenuity.
The Stations Power is of a magnitude that is hard to describe, the only real limit to its potential is the Wexxians capacity for utilising such power, but it has the power and ability to; create stars and planets… draw matter from space, stars or planets into the Mater Forge and create armadas in hours… Travel between galaxies in an instant… make a black hole explode! Point is… its POWERFUL!!!
Status:
Crisp and new, the Alitia is charging up for making the largest and furthest R.I.T. Jump in the history of the modern Galaxy!

I prefer Hatia too,  ;) but I have worked long and hard to get the Alitia right... I actually started on it before Hatia because I knew I would need it, but it took a long time and a lot of tries to get it right... while Hatia was on the right track from the start!  8)

By the way... you can all download Hatia City and my other models at Google 3D Warehouse and explore them in glorious 3d!  ;D

Random trivia: The Alitia Station has more than seven million working toilets... only three of them have ever been used!  ::)

Minor Update: Ranks of the Wexxian Royal Navy


Pilot:

(http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/6705/rankpilotld6.jpg)

Pilot is the most basic military rank in the Wexxian Navy, the Pilots crew the ships and fly the fighters.


Lieutenant:

(http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/8654/ranklieutenantxl5.jpg)

The Lieutenants are the light officers who do jobs from navigation to hangar management on larger ships. They are found everywhere on Wexxian ships and often serve as liaisons between the military commanders and non-military personnel.


Commander:

(http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/7271/rankcommanderwh2.jpg)

On a Wexxian Capital Ship (Guardian, Champion or Axon Class) The Commander serves as the second in command on the bridge. It is the Commander who manages the bridge and the ship if the Captain is away or unavailable.


Captain:

(http://img247.imageshack.us/img247/7635/rankcaptainxe0.jpg)

To a Wexxian… being a Captain is a pretty neat thing to be! The Wexxian Species lives mainly on their capital ships travelling the galaxy and the Captains are the autonomous leaders of these nomad societies. The Captains are responsible for the ship and its crew as well as having to be a representative of the Wexxian Nation. Although Wexxians consider everyone equal, being a Captain gives authority and respect among many other species and they are sometimes called upon to act as adjudicators in local disputes.
 

Admiral:

(http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/2382/rankadmiralyk0.jpg)

Admirals are the people who direct the management of the Navy’s ships on the large scale. They are the ones who manage deployment across the galaxy as well as planning joint ventures with other nation’s Fleets (Mostly Torpals). The Overseer of the Military in the Wexxian High Council is normally an Admiral, but most of the Admirals retain their responsibilities as Captains and the command of their ships after their promotion. As the only way of advancing in the Wexxian Navy is through skill; only the best of the best become Admirals!
 

Grand Admiral:

(http://img174.imageshack.us/img174/7971/rankgrandadmiralyb5.jpg)

This is it… the highest rank in the Wexxian Military, the Grand Admiral is the commander of all the Wexxian forces in the Galaxy. He has the authority to overrule the decisions of the High Council on matters of military; declare war, settle negotiations and annex territory without having to care what anyone else thinks. He does not only serve the Military, he IS the military.

There is only one Grand Admiral at the time, the position is usually retained by the individual until death. It has been an unwritten tradition since Axon, the first of the Grand Admirals, that the G.A. when beginning to feel the end of his life approaching, he will begin to participate in the most dangerous missions and finally be killed in action. This tradition has its roots in the Torpalian influence of the Wexxian Culture.
Since the Wexxian Reclamation, the Flagship; Independence has been the base of the G.A. but as the old Independence has been retired from active service, the new Independence X-2 has become the new Flagship of the G.A.
At the point of the Wexxian Exodus, there has been eleven Grand Admirals in service of the Galaxy since the Reclamation.




While the Wexxian Species is against violence and war, there is great respect among the people for the Navy and military, because of the military’s willingness to do a job that the Wexxians have trouble coping with. Due to unknown factors, the Wexxian Enerva Clan is more resilient to the emotional stress that War has on Wexxians. As a result; almost to thirds of the officers in the Royal Navy are of the Enerva family. From the time of the Reclamation, the Rank Insignia’s from Captain and above, have the Enerva Family’s symbol!



I hope you like this little update!

The Wexxian Royal Navy: Showing the Galaxy just how BADA#S Hippie Robots can be since the Necrid Discord!



Perhaps maybe a list of the Targ's greatest pranks ever. :) Or their weapons! ;D 8)

History File: Targ S’etskarp Weapon; KaBOOM; The Novelty Nuclear Missile; You never know when it might go of!!! Surprise your friends, Amuse your enemies!  ;D

KaBOOM was the first ever created WOMWTF (Weapon Of Mass, What The F##k) by the Targ S’etskarp, the first prototype was detonated during a wedding as a party starter… #Shakes head#  :P

The KaBOOM gained popularity before the Pranksters beginning of their space age, historical evidence indicates that the only reason why the entire planet was not decimated was that “The joke quickly got old!”

The development and use of the KaBOOM is further proof that the Targ S’etskarp, even before their great war, where utterly of their nut!  ::)

Description:

With the old flagship; the legendary Independence, retiring from active duty, It became a priority for the Wexxian Fleet to assign a suitable replacement. Another flagship of the Axon-Class was for a time considered, but it was decided that it was time for a new design.

The Avenger-Class is the newest design from the Wexxian Ship Yards, the prototype; The Freedom, is the first of the Wexxians new “Next-Generation” Ships. It is equipped with the latest in Wexxian Technology, and some of the technology on board essentially “breaks” the laws of physics and thus the H.M.S. Freedom is, along with the creation of the Alitia Station, an indication of the Wexxians development into a Type-4 Civilisation.*

The Ship is not the largest ever built by the Wexxians, but unlike former designs, the Freedom is designed specifically with combat in mind. While the old Independence was designed as a Diplomatic/Tactical Command Ship, the designers of the Freedom had no illusions that the Wexxians would be welcomed with flowers in another galaxy. That the Wexxians get in trouble is one of the constants of the universe, so… better be prepared!
Bigger Weapons, Better Defences and more than just aces up it’s sleeve, the Freedom is able to go up against even Torpalian-Grade Weaponry as well as some of the more… Interesting/horrifying threats that the Wexxians and their Shadows have encountered over the years.

For a long time, the name was debated, there where many suggestions and for a long time the Ship was designated as the “Independence X-02.” However, the ship’s crew felt that there already was enough pressure on the new ship to be like its predecessor, and as such; informally named the ship the Freedom. The Wexxian High Council kept referring to the ship as the New Independence for a long time, until the crew of the ship finally painted the name; Freedom, with large letters under the Royal Fleet Insignia. After that the name grew more popular among the Wexxian people and the High Council eventually conceded.

A new Flagship, a new name… the Freedom still have a long way to go before it steps out of its “Parent’s” shadow, but its crew and the new Grand Admiral are eager to get started in another galaxy… preferably peacefully!

Status:

Crisp and New… BRING IT ON!!!  ;D




*The Wexxians define the technological development of civilisations as such: 

A Type-1 Civilisation; Feels the Laws of Physics.  :)
A Type-2 Civilisation; Reads the Laws of Physics.   ;D
A Type-3 Civilisation; Bends the Laws of Physics.   8)
A Type-4 Civilisation; Breaks the Laws of Physics.  ???
A Type-5 Civilisation; Writes the Laws of Physics.   :o

Humans have reached Type-2. Most species in the Civilised Galaxy have reached Type-3. The Communicants and the Terran-Ixians are to my knowledge the only existing Type-4 civ’s in the galaxy except the ascended beings. There is no known Type-5 Civ’s known at the present time, but the Wexxians have found indications in the universe and in common elements in mythology that such beings may have helped create the universe… these are of course mere speculations!  ;)

English. Its written in english with different 'characters'.

But still pretty cool lookin'.

What do the 'lowercase' f and m look like?

I’ts written in… Basic! Besides, I’ve just made a new writing system, you want me to make a new language too?  :o Give me a few years and I will mail you a Karpo-English dictionary, but please give me a break for now! I work in a bakery and have to get up every morning at 4:45… so please… please… be nice!  :'(

For the question… what the 'lowercase' f and m look like… Short Awnser; Complicated! The form of a symbol is different depending on its position in the word… Ill make an update as soon as I have all the Symbols in order!   :P

Those dots in the center are letter e's, right?

The Dots in the centre indicate the location of the different letters, it’s the smaller symbols that indicate which letter it represents… a bit complicated… as I said, Ill make an update soon!  ???

Obviously, I still have a long way to go, but I will get around to it soon… I think!  ;)
 


Here is a little picture I made for the little bonus I made for the Parting of the Wexxians Thread.

(http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/4264/alitiatransit02uv3.jpg)

It actually is supposed to be the start of a little series of posts telling the story of the Wexxians after their Exodus and the horrors that they face… I suppose I could give you a little preview of what it will be… If I ever get around to do the damn thing!


Coming Soon(I hope):
The Wexxians; Book Two: “The Dark One

Stranded in another galaxy, the Wexxians face their greatest challenge yet, as they find themselves in the middle of a war that has lasted for millions of years.

Can they convince the warring sides to make peace, or will they be forced to choose one side over the other. And who… or what, is responsible for keeping the galaxy in constant war for so long… and why?

Reunited with his people; will Teaz have the strength to do what is necessary as a Wexxian, as a S’etskarp, as a Warrior, as husband and a father… even if it kills him? And even so… is death really enough to stop a real hero?

Dark forces gather, can Teaz and the Wexxians survive in a galaxy commanded by evil?



Preview:  

The figure’s robes was a tangled mess of dirty rags but Teaz sensed the power within the being it concealed, and he recognised it.

“Axon?”

"Yes!" The being’s voice sounded strange, as it was something Teaz remembered, not something he heard.

“Are… are you a ghost?”

"In a way, yes… A ghost in the machine!" A hint of a smile formed under the darkness of the Reclaimer’s hood.

“Then… Am I a ghost too? Am I DEAD?” Teaz was not all that keen on the idea.

"You’re by no means a ghost… but I will not deny the fact that you are dead!"

“I’m… dead?” Teaz almost whispered, feeling strangely numb.

Axon placed a strangely solid and warm, grey hand on Teaz’s shoulder. "What is the last thing you remember?" He asked softly.

“I… I was trying to save… to save Lanetia and… and that ‘thing’… it! It… and I used the Orb that Moriadne had given me. Oh my Lanetia… I failed her!”

Teaz fell down on his knees as despair griped him. Axon kneeled before him.

"No, you did not fail her, The Orb summoned Moriadne and he was able to get you and your wife to safety before the Dark One could harm you further."

Teaz lifted his head. “Did Moriadne destroy that thing?”

"No, not even the Terran-Ixian was able to do that… you died of your wounds in the hospital after he brought you both home. Even with our technology, we Wexxians are still not equipped to handle wounds caused by a semi-ascended being!"

“How do you know all this?” Teaz asked with some confusion.

"Humph, I’m DEAD… not deaf or blind! And I still like to know what my great grandchildren are doing!" The memory of the Reclaimer said with feign affront.

“How can I be dead, but not a ghost?”

Axon laughed softly. "You still haven’t figured out where you are, have you?" He gestured around at the vast expanse of nothingness that surrounded the two.

“I… this is my mind!... They are trying to bring me back!” Teaz said as the revelation washed over him.

"Yes… this is your mind. The Wexxians could not save your organic body, so they transferred your mind to a Wexxian Shell. So that you may choose to live on, reincarnated as a Wexxian!"

“How could I ever live like that… my wife, my children!”

"Exactly why! This is the only way that you will be sure that they will have a safe future! You must return… so you can destroy the Dark One and end the Infinite War!"

“What?” Teaz shouted with outrage. “I can’t do that! If Moriadne wasn’t able to then there is no way that I could ever defeat if alone!”

"You are not alone… We will help you!"

“We?” Teas asked puzzled, but as he looked around he saw other figures emerge from the nothingness. Hundreds, thousands of Wexxians in all shapes and sizes where appearing all around them.

"We are the ones who come before! When a Wexxian reproduces, it leaves behind a imprint of itself in the coding of their children. Now that your mind is becoming integrated into the program, you have discovered us… the imprints of your ancestors. We will help you when you need it!"

“There is really no choice for me is there?”

"There is always a choice… but we both already know what you will choose! You are too much like me in that way…" Axon’s ethereal voice was kind and gave Teaz the strength accepts his fate.

“I’m ready!”

"Then rise Teaz, my son! The fate of the Galaxy hangs in the balance. It will be up to you… Avenger!"


(I hope that this has given you a little appetite for the story I am planning, without giving too much of the plot away. Any references to the Terran-Ixians and Moriadne is done with the permission of Yuu!

Do anyone have any suggestions to what I should update with? I would update with a picture and a bio on Teaz... but I can't remember where I put the drawing I was working on!  :-\  Any suggestions?  :)

Today is the day!!! The Second Anniversary of the Robotic Wexxians… Two years ago I joined this band of merry Creature Makers with my Artificial Hippies... Ahh… the memories!  ;D

As a special today… I got a update on something I’ve been working on for a while. You will have to excuse me that its yet another SketchUp Model, but HEY… its my thread so I can post whatever I want. HA HA!!!!! ;)

Here is to knowing the Wexxians and all you guys out there in the Forum for two years… Hurray!  :D

The Shadow Station


Type:
Shadow Wexxian Stealth Headquarter Station.

Size:
1000 Kilometres. 621,37 Miles.

Crew:
Ca. 750000 Shadows.

Weapons:
Subspace Gamma Pulse Emitter. 1000 Zero-Point Annihilation Beam Emplacements. 500 Tractor Beam Emplacements.

Defences:
Subspace Particle Shield Generators. Axonium Hull Plating. Nanite Enhanced Self-Repairing Hull.

Power Source:
2 Zero-Point Energy Cascade Reactors.

Engines:
Wexxian Inertia Drive

Special Systems:
Twelve Graviton Manipulation Nodes. Internal and External Teleportation Grid. Shadow Wexxian Cloaking Devise. Subspace Gamma Pulse Emitter. Advanced Sensor Array.

Description:
The Shadow Station is the headquarters of the “Shadows,” perhaps the most secret covert operations division in the galaxy. The Shadow Station is cloaked at all time and its location is weekly changed to a random location in empty space. The Station was founded after the Wexxian Reclamation by the Wexxian General `Spectre´ who was a student of Axon; the first `Shadow Wexxian´.
The Shadow Station is where the Operatives are trained, live and operate from. It’s the junction point of the Shadow’s entire galaxy-spanning Intelligence Network. It is also where they store confiscated technology and devises too dangerous for organics to handle.
The Shadow Station and its operatives are among the most closely guarded secrets in the history of the Wexxians.

Status:
As the Reborn Wexxian Nation Departed with the Alitia Station; the Shadow Station is now the only Wexxian Foothold in the Spore Galaxy.




And now for a little update on the Shadows themselves:

Shadow Wexxians:

`They are the BAD, good guys!´

While the Spec-Ops training and reprogramming was once an education of young Reborn Wexxians, the Spec-Ops quickly evolved into a distinctly different species. Because of their secretive nature and the moral complexities of their lives, they named themselves the “Shadow Wexxians”. The “Shadows” are by far the most different subspecies in the Wexxian family tree and it would not be wrong at all, to call them an entirely different species. The reason for the difference is that the Shadows have the ability to shut off their Base Code while ordinary Wexxians are subject to it their entire lives. The Shadows still follow the code, but are not slaves to it. Their ability enable them to “do what’s necessary” in a difficult situation.

The Shadows are not a part of the Wexxian Nation; they do not report to any nation or institution. They are completely self-sufficient and autonomous. They, their headquarters; the Shadow Station, their covert operations around the galaxy… their very existence is one of the most closely guarded secrets of the Wexxians.

Physically; the Shadow Wexxians are shape-shifters and take whatever form needed to complete the mission or blend in with the crowd. This is possible because Shadow Wexxians create their `Shells´ from millions of microscopic nano-machines. Their abilities extent to a point where it is almost impossible to distinguish them, even with advanced sensory equipment, from other beings. The ability to quickly change shape and appearance is what make them efficient undercover operatives as well as deadly fighters. The Martial Art of the Shadows; the Xelos-Axon (Meaning: `The Way of the Warrior´) utilises the full deadly potential of the shape-shifting along with techniques incorporated from other species military traditions, in both unarmed, close and ranged combat.

Personality wise, the Shadows are… self-righteous, stubborn and phlegmatic… like most Wexxians are… they are although a lot more aggressive, impulsive and sometimes they are just downright scary!

Being in possession of the most extensive intelligence network in known existence, the Shadows consider themselves the galaxy’s first line of defence against Gamma-Level threats and above. While they stay out of internal galactic wars and politics, they are more than busy enough sending strike teams around the galaxy, dealing with the next mad scientist, ancient demon, rouge ascended being, inter-dimensional monster, extra galactic invasion force or any other annoyance that always happens to appear when you sit down for a cup of tea.

Luckily for them, they have the entire amassed technological knowledge of the Wexxians… as well as quite a few other technologies they picked up in the galaxy. AND, they do not have as many moral squabbles as the Wexxians about putting that extensive technological supremacy to good use!

Originally the Shadows where exclusively Wexxians… but after the legendary Torpal; Lord Tow Ky Juhl, accepted to become the Lord Spectre (Chief Commander of the Shadow Station), the Shadows have begun to recruit outsiders into their ranks, either because of their unnatural skills, abilities or experience.


That’s all for this time folks! Stay Cool!  :) I hope you like this minor update!

Awesome all the way! That ship is made of high-tech WIN! 8) What I like most about it is the feeling you get when you look at the station. You really get that stealth feel because of it's slim and elegant design.

Intragalactic version of the MIB! 8) AWESOME! 8) ;D

Wow an update! Who would have thought... maybe at this rate I will get another one done in time for Christmas.  :P

I'm sorry about the long delays between updates... I am busy with trying to survive the real world. I will try to update more but unemployment tends to shut down my creativity and jobs are sparse.

Anyhow, I hope you like this crude attempt at a hand drawn Shadow, I'm trying a new drawing method so comments are appreciated.

I would also love suggestions to future updates.

The Wexxians Eternal love to you all!  ;)

The rumours of my ascension are transcendently exaggerated…  :P

Today was the day I had been waiting for, for so long… I brought the Galactic Edition of Spore!  ;D

After having played for a sizeable part of the day, I think I must conclude that there is little chance that robots can be created as playable creatures.  :-\

Faced with the prospect of never playing as my beloved Wexxians, I found myself to my surprise to be supremely unconcerned. It really doesn’t bother me an Omic.  :D

Truth be told, I don’t think I will ever STOP playing the Wexxians… I emulate them in their ideals… I still work on my drawings, models and stories of them, though not as often as I would like… I have many good memories from this forum and I’m even reminded of them in things I see.

Like this chap:

By the way, WALL-E is definitely a Jack approved movie. It rocks!  8)


So in stead of Wexxians, I have today enjoyed playing the Targ S’etskarps… the Great Pranksters, a much more entertaining way to play. Joyfully evill!!!!
 :D

The maker of Targ and S’etskarp is proud to introduce; WEXXIANS.

New and improved Wexxians is exactly what the galaxy needs when it needs it. And because they’re blue, Wexxians goes stylishly with everything.


WARNING; side effects of being a Wexxian may include: floating, cramping, hair-loss, heightened intelligence, fits of affection for all life, dangerous self-sacrificial heroic tendencies, loss of taste, loss of gender, unyielding moral fiber and spontaneous-self-ascension. Children under 2 should not be exposed to Wexxians, as exposure can cause strong ideological hippie inclinations. Do not get Wexxians wet and never feed them after midnight. If you experience trouble saving the galaxy, consult your nearest Wexxian consulate.

Thank you for choosing Wexxian.

The Wexxians have arrived in the Spore Galaxy.  ;)

Alright, they’re not the “Robotic” Wexxians that I wanted them to be, but they are still Wexxians and look almost the same, even though they are flesh beneath the metal.

So these are the Alternate Universe Non-Canon “Organic” Wexxians… cute aren’t they?  :D

(http://img169.imageshack.us/img169/5990/creorganicwexxian06f227hg7.png)


My attempts at making a Wexxian as a Spaceship where unsatisfactory, so I went about it the natural way.

Soooo cute the little babyWexxian… HUGE eye.  :D


After some tweaking, I came to this ridiculous and absolutely Wexxian look.

Animak

(http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/8130/animakaa4.jpg)

ID: Nerrug-Nagal-02

Name: Animak

Species: Wexxian-Fevas Ameus Alecus (Servant-of-all who thinks and feels) Reborn Wexxian

Age: 7sy

Place of Origin: Hatia

Appearance: X-large Sombreonoid Shell. Custom “Tattoo” Paint Job of his own design.

Family: Deceased.

Voice: Loud and booming.

Personality: Empathic and Reckless, Never gives up. 

Intelligence: Mid-low for a Wexxian

Occupation:  Pilot in the Royal Wexxian Navy, Vanguard Squad 23 aboard the Flagship Freedom.

Ancestry: Comes from a long line of military Wexxians.

Ambition: To once and for all dismiss the 2000 year old myth about Wexxians, not being able to fight.

Quote: “This is going to be FUN!”

Greatest Strength: His fighting spirit.

Greatest Weakness: His recklessness and his poor strategic gifts.

Description: Animak is a soldier, pure and simple. The order comes and he charges... sometimes also before the order. He has little patience for politics or strategy and prefers open combat to subterfuge or other cowardly tactics. He claims to be a Zeshinist but only says so because he admires the Torpals and their culture. Being almost four meters tall, the golem-like Wexxian can be quite intimidating as well as inspiring when he charges into battle. However, his lacking strategic skills keeps him from being a true leader. Privately he is known to be a very jovial person who always sticks up for his flight mates. He enjoys flying, Shoot-em-Up Games and Grav-Ball. 

Abilities:
Good Pilot.
Excellent fighter.
Inspiring personality.


Inventory: 
Pacifier Ionic Gun ‘Modified.’



Whew, it’s been a long time since I last posted anything here. I finally completed a drawing on my new Laptop/tablet and despite the crude first attempt at Gec’s style; I’m actually pleased with the result. I do wonder if there is anyone (Besides Yuu) who can guess what anime character inspired the creation of Animak... I know I left at least four different clues.

I’ll try to be more active on the forum but I can make no promises. It’s my nature to be unpredictable and I rarely plan far ahead. Nevertheless, it’s good to be back. I wonder if I should make a Wexxian 2.0 thread... this old thread is nearing 55 pages and I can be tough to keep track of all the information between old Rp bits and random rubbish. I am also considering expanding my posting to DeviantArt and FictionPress.com for more constructive criticism from other artists and writers. But I am uncomfortable about spreading the Wexxians to others without asking you guys for your opinion first... I may have invented the Wexxians, but they belong to us all. Besides, Introducing outsiders to the wonders of the Spore RP Universe will take a large bit of effort, as the amount of detail and back story is staggering. So it’s not anything I’ll do overnight.
No matter if I do it or not, this will always be the home of the Wexxians. This Forum gave life to them as it did so many other wondrous creations.

Comments and criticism is welcomed.


This is dedicated to my Grandmother Eva Holck Vesterager, who taught me that with enough willpower; nothing is impossible. A woman, who never lost a fight in her life, be it with people, disease or even death itself. Who chose to finally die, last Monday after having beaten death eight times to the continued amazement of both doctors and family. She died 87 years old, with a smile on her lips and a mischievous sparkle in her eyes. Goodbye Grandma, I will never forget you.
