Vas-le was flabbergasted.
"Why...I've....I've never seen something so advanced! We have terraforming tools, but something to such a controlled extent....it's incredible." He said, stunned. He picked it up, and messed with it, managing to spawn a light rain, as the representative had managed before. He turned it off and wiped the water off his face.
"My body is more...well, situated, for a slightly moist environment. Most of our strains are desert creatures, but I happen to be better suited for wet." He explained. He tapped the two front feet, with their large talons, on the floor, drumming a light tune. He suddenly remembered the pouch at his side, and he reached for it, fumbling through it. He grabbed a small wooden figure, and pulled it out.
"Want one of these? They are hand-carved nutrient holders. They have a powder inside them that can be added to virtually any food or drink and it will add a large amount of nutrients to said foodstuff. It's tasteless, so you can add it to sweets or other foods considered "bad", and it will help conpensate. As I said, they are hand carved out of durable wood. It's on the house. If you want it, go ahead and have one or two. Have some refill packets, too, if you want." He said, offering as thanks for the hospitality.

"Oh dear, Monsieur Vas-le, I really don't know what to say!", the representative was as overjoyed as he was surprised. To receive an item of such premium authenticity, and from an official of extremely high status no less, was absolutely not within his expectations of ever occurring. With great gratitude, the Choro Deidalus took the official's offer.

Such gifts for hospitality was, and still is, customary in the Athanatsu system, so long as it was an interpersonal affair. This was due mostly to Orealyianis, Pakuweinia and Luzonian culture, which all have inclinations for merry gift-giving.

"Much thanks, Monsieur Vas-le!", the representative said, trying to find words to say.

Not long after, a rather mellow, bell-like sound echoed across the room. They had arrived at their destination.

Tanariadne, Tower 1, Main Lobby

"We have arrived, Monsieur Vas-le.", the representative said "Welcome to Tower 1, the Galactic Protection Agency's current center of operations."

The Choro Deidalus, along with his subordinate droids, guided the leader Vas-le and his associates through the massive lower complex and up into the topmost levels, where the meeting hall was located.

Tanariadne, Tower 1, Meeting Hall, Lobby

"Monsieur Vas-le, up ahead would be the Meeting Hall proper.", the representative said. "The ambassadors of the Galactic Protection Agency's member civilizations would be there to meet your presence."

And with that, they made their way to the appointed venue.

A small (by modern Galactic standards, at least), Khuris Class Personnel Transport ship warped into the Tanariadne system, very close to the GPA station. It bore United Federation of Khuris markings on it, so it was rather unusual for it to have came without calling in first. Incidentally, a transmission came through displaying a rather frazzled Senator Kharajev and a peculiar white Ni'Calls behind her.

//I apologize for failing to call in ahead of time, I've been rather... preoccupied, lately, it must have slipped my mind. But I digress. I, and Karlan Talsenreave,// The little white Ni'Calls in the background gave a sort of nodding movement,//Have come on behalf of the United Federation of Khuris and the Ni'Calls Union of Technology and Sociology, respectively, to discuss our membership in the GPA. The UFK has been seeking to become more involved in wider galactic issues than the USSS, and Karlan has a special motive of his. Karlan?// Karlan was quickly focused upon by the holographic recorder. //Thank you. The UT is seeking membership in the GPA, preferably the vacant Technological Development place. We have a... project. A project which requires assistance and sponsorship of the galaxy at large. We should have forseen such a small-minded community being so short-sighted...// He drifted off for a second, then seemed to realize where he was with a start. //ANYWAY! I hope that an agreement is what we will be speaking of shortly! I expect to see someone about the matter soon. Good-bye.//

The transmission ended, and the transport positioned itself to enter the Station.

Soon, the transport was escorted into the station, where a fully-dedicated escort, one for each VIP, soon greeted them as they set foot on the city-planet.

After some adequately satisfying conversations along the way, the convoy finally arrived at the GPA's main headquarters. They then quickly made their way into the office's main meeting hall, where the agency's highest available officers, as well as a panel composed of some of the organizations finest professionals, eagerly awaited their arrival. They were very interested in what the representatives had to say, especially about the project which professor Talsenreave spoke of.

Depending on what the project actually is, the project could prove quite useful to the agency's primary ends.

Earlier that day...


Board of the Galactic Protection Agency...

I hereby present to you...

His Excellency, Lord Vas-le! Leader and Chief Representative of the Zeront Republic!


The Zeront leader was then escorted to a specifically prepared podium which stood opposite to that of the agency's highest available officers.

Karlan, who seemed to be rather reserved on the subject at hand, let Kharajev go first.

She stood before the panel, and began her address.

"Ladies, gentlemen, and other members of the Galactic Protection Agency, it is my honor to be standing here today in representation of the UFK and its people. Our race and immigrants to and from our countries has slowly been receding from the galactic stage of politics and action, reaching the point of near stagnation. With the outbreak of the "Core Combine War", the Chancellery has come to the decision to begin the Reintegration Act, or "Second Contact". The GPA is an important society and integral to maintaining peace in the galaxy, a virtue the Bino have cherished and cultivated for millennia. They have called upon me to request a membership role in the GPA, and have left me to decide my place it it. I have chosen Chief of Personnel. The Bino people have valued friendship and cooperation since the very beginning, and have always maintained and defended that. My background in politics and military training has given me exceptional experience in regulating the "force", as well as negotiating problems and differences among people. I think that it would be an excellent experience.

Thank you."

She sat down, but quickly jumped up again, realizing what she forgot.

"Allow me to introduce your second candidate, the brilliant mind Dr. Sarelka Karlan Talsenreave."

She looked around, realizing that Talsenreave had disappeared. Bewildered, she repeated, "Mr. Talsenreave?"

She looked quickly outside, nearly stepping in what appeared to be a little white puddle; Karlan was practically melted onto the floor, his dinner-plate eye's penetrating gaze staring unblinkingly at the ceiling.

"Oh, hello Dashira. I'm just a bit... nervous."

"More than a little nervous", she thought to herself. He couldn't literally keep his composure, and that spine brace didn't help either...

She helped him back into shape, and he hopped into the room.

"Excuse me, just getting a little 'fresher air.' Members of the GPA, it is a pleasure of me to be here as prime Representative to the Talenreave College of Calla. I stand before you in the hopes of an agreement of momentous occasion, the creation of something much more than any of us... The Ni'Calls have always been known across the galaxy as being exceptionally technologically able, and we have always pushed ourselves to explore, to lean, to create. Unfortunately our prime supporters throughout history of our galacic reception, are... unable... to support our endeavors any longer. This project is clearly beyond the grasp of minds of some people, but that is why I stand here before you today! You are some of the best mids in the Galaxy! The most intelligent, willful, spirited bunch of them all! You're stores of information baffle the minds of almost everyone able to comprehend them! But have you ever asked yourselves, "What lies beyond the bounds of our machines, our sensors, our very existence..."

The Ni'Calls have gathered our most dedicated minds together at Talesnreave for the most extradordinary project in recorded history! A machine so great that it can bend the very existence of space, of time, of reality!

TALSENREAVE STATION!"

He projected the image of Talenreave across the large meeting room, just as his representative had in the USSS tower what seemed like decades ago.

"The station is the most revolutionary piece of machinery in theoretical existence! A machine so powerful it can view the universe before it began, and then travel there, it can peer far into the future, and take you there! It can transverse the entirety of the universe in less than an instant. And any other universe in existence."

"You may ask, 'what is the gain of all of this, the catalouging of a distant star no one cares about?' Hah. Let me give you a scenario:

Eventually, there will be no more available power in our galaxy. Our ships, our powerstations, all will have depleted every source of usable energy in reach, and we have no ability to get at more. But if we have Talsenreave, nothing is unreachable. Say, there is another universe. Like this one, a nice, quaint little ball of spacetime, which has ywt to explode with energy. Almost boundless energy. All we may have to do is jump to that universe, and wait. The energy will come flowing in infinitesimal amounts forth, all we must do is catch it. A thin sail is all we would need to capture all the energy we would need to power the galaxy for a billion years into the future."

"And let me ask you this: Are the Shadow not dwelling in a so far unreachable other reality?"

He paused, rather for effect or to recover from this unusual display of passionate emotion was unknown.

"To have this would be the ultimate power. To learn, to observe, to enforce, to create. My position would allow for innovation to continue and assist the GPA, and the galaxy at large. All I ask in return is you consider assistance of constructuing this machine. Thank you."

A Photos official stood.
"Dr. Talsenreave, would a Shadow wormhole generator be of any use on this project. The Shadow's wormholes are able to cross at between universes, that is, from what we can make of it, the gist of what the Talsenreave Station is about. Mind you, if we could get this technology and replicate it, there would be no need, as individual ships could cross between universes at a whim. Not to overshadow you, pardon the pun, but this is just something I would like to clairify. And if I AM missing the point, would one of those Wormhold Generators be of use in the project?" He asked, sitting back down.

"An Excellent question." Karlan adressed the Photos.

Studying the generator may prove useful towards the studying of inter-universe relations. It would, however, most likely be difficult to integrate into the systems of Talsenreave...

Dear me, I nearly forgot!"

He projected a more detailed diagram of Talsenreave, along with an accompanying paper describing the project.

"If I may clarify, and I am sorry for failing to do so earlier, Talsenreave is a prototype Time-slip Differential Drive, A technology utilizing, in a nutshell, quantum mechanics to slip the machine from one position in any universe to another, or within a specific universe. Simulations have also demonstrated an ability to alter time placement of the device as well. Our main problem is the size. With all the intricacies involved in the machine, all the sensors, the probes, the computers, the fuel tanks, all of it, amounts to a structure the size of a large moon. However, we think that the compression devices made famous by the Orealyianis and Terran-Ixians, may be able to decrease the size to roughly a quarter of the size. The station could also double as an incredible mobile base of operations, for, say, the military. We've already located two planetoids probable for mining the resources needed, and project the construction time to be roughly 15 to 25 years at full capacity. We have very resourceful builders in the Calla system.

To ease the shock, this ammount of material has been used in such constructions as Beyon City, a megalopolis which exploded in population when several government entities began construction there, was placed there over a period of a few hundred years maybe. Growing very haphazardly as well, with little organization. Talsenreave would most likely be much quicker to construct.

If the ViS so long ago could strip-mine an entire planet in a few years, who's to say an entire galaxy can't do it nowadays!

the Graidient senator Kurheac was of a bit farther off from the meeting area; these people spoke far too loud. He had been a bit suprised by the gracious greeting the new arrivals had received, though he supposed his arrival was rather unconventional.

he gave his feelings on the plans for the station

 "seems impromptu. your years are... small. A handfull of them could produce this great 'device'? that may be all it takes to build it, from my experiences, such project's usually take time to sort out. you don't want to find that you have failed to consider every possibility, and your work, effort, and expenditures go to waste."

"to my point, I propose a 148 year period prior to construction to assess the plans, and work out the details, both  political and conventional"

"By... By Jove... 148?"

Karlan seemed almost hurt by the sentiment.

"I think you underestimate our abilities, senator! Not only do we have some of the most brilliant mids in the known galaxy, but banks upon banks of supercomputers, which are more than capable of figuring out in an instant what a biological brain would take centuries to compute. And, a majority of our scholars aren't biological. Anyway, we don't consider time to be a factor, merely what is capable of being done in that time. Don't think that we have just randomly churned this out; it has been... baking... in the computers at Talsenreave College for years.

Tell me, senator. What would you consider a reasonable time to build a starship? Moderately sized, about 500 meters, warp drive, crew accommodations, all that jazz."

"I don't have any doubt of your capabilities. I didn't mean to cause "insult" (whatever that means). as for building a ship, the time it takes to construct is short. we can construct it easily, as our whole people can be at work with ease. At the senatorial, we usually take a few centuries to discuss it first, and find a unanimous agreement on everything. a machine is not equivalent."

"ahmmm... I see. Your sentiment is well noted, as it may well be perceived that we are rushing ahead on matters which could be considered "to far ahead of their time".

He shuddered.

"AHEM. Anyway, yes. It may be wise to discuss implications, though I may make an observation that eagerness to power on seems faint in your race. Typically matters such as this will drag out for a decade at WORST, usually lasting for one maybe two years. We've got no problem with devoting our resources to this matter, but we need your consensus."

"personally, I am in favor, though this is not a matter for the senatorial regardless. I will confess that my judgements may be skewed on matters of the time scale. The considerations of limited lifespans are unexpected."

"The Knowing that this development could bring where only briefly mentioned in your dialogue. could you elaborate on all we could learn from the station? no further queries." -Kureac

Oh! My! Elements!, the Choro Deidalus representative yelled in his mind. His fellow Choro Deidalus located in the panel of experts also had similar sentiments. Their people have always been fascinated by such endeavors, and to see someone presenting them with a method to achieve something once thought to be nothing more than a distant dream, the power to discover the multiverse...

It was, a very emotional experience.

Once the final count comes around, the Choro Deidalus were all going to vote for aye.

The Luzonian Knighthood were also quite interested in the proposed undertaking, though it would cost quite a sum. But to them, the monumental cost of the project was nothing compared to the opportunity of being able to watch the most awe inspiring battles in the history of ever...

Oh, and for the establishment of galactic peace and all that jazz.

The Chivi and Marakiri, however, had a rather mixed opinion about the project. While considering it's massive benefits, the two groups also considered the philosophical and logistical effects of opening a doorway to the mindmelt that was limitless alternate realities.

Eventually, they settled with a less than unanimous yes, though they would keep a keen eye on the finished product, lest it be used for purposes other than benevolent.

As for the Atomna, they agreed with a swift yes.

The Orealyianis also agreed on the project, though with the same lingering concern as that of the Chivi and Marakiri. They would keep close gueard on the project, to prevent it from falling into the wrong people...

Especially from "Them".

If Karlan could smile, he would be smiling "ear to ear".

"They care about discovery!"


"Yes! The knowledge that will come of it!

Throughout the history of time, every being capable has looked up at the sky, and asked himself two questions. "Where did I come from?" and "What will happen after I'm gone?" ever since these fundamental questions were first asked, the beings of the universe have strived to know these questions. But they could never truly be answered. If we look at something far away, we can see what it looked like back when that light first left, but that's it. It would take exponential distance to properly see far into time, and then, you can't manipulate it, can't see it in detail. And then, the second question "What of the galaxy after I'm gone?". That's the question! Which the Talsenreave Station can answer! The bounds of time finally unlocked! Distances once un-crossable now a simple hop away! Speaking of which, the Novus Cluster. It's been a large subject of study for years, and we can only reach it from afar, sadly. Until, possibly, now.

And, the biggest question of all: What happened before the Big Bang? We may not be able to go to the "time before time", but we can get mighty close. Imagine the things we could discover! Although, tiem travel might be considered a little more thoroughly before we attempt that.

Another popular question amongst theoretical physicists is "What's in the other universes out there? What are they like?" An idea relegated to science-fiction, is now as plausible as me stopping rambling within the next decade... But that doesn't reassure you does it! Heh...

I'm open to any inquiries or comments presented, so "shoot away".

At the drop of a hat, one of the Choro Deidalus panelists raised her hand and promptly asked the professor.

"Professor Talsenreave, I would like to inquire of this one question which has been lingering in my mind for quite some time...", she stated. "When the device is fully operational, how much energy is it estimated to consume during an average transit, and in a similar vein, the maintenance of a sufficiently sized protective bubble per unit of time relative to it? Current statistics indicate that our galaxy's total energy output is only about one trillionth that of a fully developed Var'ehks Xad Level-III civilization. Will this be enough to sufficiently power the machine?"
