Sha'thar of the Gosht Kohr Posted September 27, 2004 Report Share Posted September 27, 2004 We are outraged at your aggression in the Kerwen system. Is that any way to meet an unknown alien race? What explaination do you offer? Honored Sir or Madam- You are quite correct. The tragedy which took place in the Kerwin system should not have happened. I was shocked when I learned of the event. Please let me explain. We... are an agressive race, not by choice but by nature. We take it as a matter of routine to keep our claws sharpened. Our traditions and rituals revolve around the hunt. You will note that the ships of ours you encountered were an old design, perhaps typical of the first ships any race may send into the unknown. With no idea of what to expect, these primative ships need to be ready for literally anything. The fleet you discovered was the first of our fleets to leave the home system in exploration. The antiquated programing of weapons systems reflects this. But I will not tell you that the tragedy was not caused by a systems malfunction. The judgements of the leader of that expedition were clouded. She will be punished for her errors. The combination of antiquated programming, the erronious choices of an unproven commander and our racial tendancy to consider most things prey figured into what happened. But we desire to live in peace with those prides with territories boardering ours. The Kerwin incident was an unfortunate, isolated incident and need not color future interactions between us. We of the Gosht Kohr seek forgiveness. We have begun to update all software programs aboard our ships in the Kerwin area in order to reflect the new universe in which we now live, with another sentient race. Our ships will hold their fire unless fired upon. We also offer restitution, in whatever form you see fair and just, up to and including our replacing what was lost by you. We offer this in the hopes that what has been done by us in error, may be undone. May our two races find more profitable ways of interacting.
