The Nilhes system. A small system in a corner of the galaxy riddled with asteroid belts and a few minor planets. Considered by most to be a boring, useless system.

That is, untill a strange signal is broadcasted from the largest planet in the system. Most of the signal is static, although about halfway through the film, a strange rasping sound can be heard. It appears to be some form of speech, low and uttered quickly. Although riddled with static, some few words, not in any known language, can be picked up. "Kheros....gal'chik....nehiu......Imteros..."

Well, to tell the truth, it is a fairly basic intro, but maybe more attention would be draw to it by mentioning attributes/characteristics. All we have to go on is a few words. But here is what I am interested in...

Mind translating what they said?

Well it's a creature I already have a topic about on the boards. And since I've only made two topics, and one of the species have already made contact with other races, you people could narrow it down, dangit.

Go on then....


An Auyuelcliad mining vessel picks up the message. It attempts to communicate with the signal by sending out messages in avrios galatic langauges, and some precursor ones. They also transmit a picture of an Auyuelcliad to them.

Some time has passed since the enigma signal was broadcasted from the Nilhes system. However, soon, a much stronger signal, obviously ment as a communication outside the system is soon picked up by all who listen. This signal, instead of the limited audio conversation of the last one, is a video feed. A rough image soon would be brought up on the screen, a humanoid figure, surrounded by other, smaller ones. The tallest, obviously the leader, has blue skin, pointed ears, and luminous yellow eyes. His compatriots range in colors from gray to a pale white. Each of them appear to be wearing helmets, most of them with one, straight spike poking from the top, fewer ones, probally higher in rank, with two curved spines, giving their helmets the apperance of being horned. The leader has a straight spike and the two curved spines as well. After adressing the audience in an unknown language, a small, pale being with no helmet brings a computation device with a screen. The leader uses this screen, and on it, an image is shown of two stick-figures, greeting each other. Another image is brought up, showing a picture of the two stick figures tapping their fists together, possibly a sign of friendship. The next image shows the stickfigure on the right brandishing what appears to be a weapon. The final image shows the figure on the left standing over the threatening creature, a sword jammed into it's head. Perhaps this stands as a greeting, and a warning to those who have hopes of hostility among these humanoids.

A while has passed since the alien communication was recieved, and no reply of any sort has been given. The citizens of the Nilhes system are in uproar, confused and demanding answers. On the capital city on planet Nihelios, in the towering fortress known as The Citadel, the emperor of the Ghulos, Imperik Klim'heer, adresses his people. A crowd of thousands, perhaps even approaching a million gather around to hear his speech, while others watch patiently at home.

The emperor, garbed in his three-horned helmet, wearing his cape and with his ceremonial sword sheated on his back, steps out onto a balcony of the Citadel. His voice, amplified by hundreds of speakers, is cast out upon his audience.

"My brothers, my sisters! Cease your vocalizations! We have clearly been sent a message, a message from otherwordly life. The great question has finally been answered! Although our reply has yet to be answered, we must look to the stars! As I speak to you, young ones, expeditionary ships are being launched and will soon escape our system, in attempt to find and communicate with our universal neighbors. This is a great time for us all. You all will be able to speak to your offspring, that you were alive when we met our Space-brothers. However, this is also a time for concern. We have only begun to crack the secrets of the Other's message, and we do not know their intent. But hear me, citizens, if they wish to coexist in peace, it shall be done. But if they have intents of hostility, they will be crushed underfoot! The Son of Ghil has spoken!"

Over the planet, and indeed, of all colonies in the system, the Ghulos rejoice. This incarnation of the Emperor has always had nice speeches. They hope their expeditions will soon meet their galactic comrades, and they wonder, what will be next? What will be learned? What will be gained?

An Omic ship enters this area, does its usual scan for life and finds this signal, they're are not scared it's not translated because they're relatively new in space so not much languages are documented.

//Hello? Orcogic? Saryonoc?//

The Omics say hello in three languages, english (how do they know it? No idea) The Omic main language, Omic, and Cornyic, the Omic language used high in the mountains?

The omic signal is picked up by a small asteroid colony. An alert signal is activated, and soon the Omic ship is surrounded by many larger ships, with large amounts of powerful, although seemingly outdated weapons.(I assume the Omic ships are small since the omics are tiny). The largest of these ships quickly discharges a small capsule, if the Omics were to take this onboard and open it, they would find it to be filled with gifts of silver jewelry, animal hides, and a small data-storage device, which, if properly processed through a computer, can get a rough translation program of the Ghulos language.

"what the...?" says captain wik in surprise, "cadet, pull that capsule in!" When it is on board Wik loads in the translation, //hello beings! We are the Omic, please install this program//, he transmits a translator file.  //thanks for the gifts too.//

OOC: this Omic ship is 20 metres tall and 5 metres wide!

The omic translation program is uploaded into the Ghulos's computers. A test transmission is broadcast. "Test. Test. We are Ghulos. Do you Understand?"

One of the the Omic says to the other, "wow, they have sharp teeth" "don't worry, we're okay now were wearing these things" he says, looking down at his 1.5 metre tall mech "if only we weren't so small" he sighed. The other replies "what are you gonna do?" "good point, thats what the mechs are for." The other suddenly panicks "wait, shouldn't we be wearing mechs with guns on them?" "why?" "just in case!" "uhhhh, no, the Anubians seem cool" then they walk off down a corridor to system control.

Now we should probably make a seperate thread for this, this thread is 4 ghulos
