Docks Terminal[edit | edit source]

Messages to the Nexus Docks Terminal.png

Translated from Shelesh:

Subject: Why are you here?

What impulse drove your people to cross darkspace? What have you come here for? Do you expect us to believe you're just explorers who want to live in peace? I think you fled something terrible. I think it might follow you here.

Subject: Questions

Which one of your species actually controls this so-called "Initiative"? Are you even different species, or just genetic constructs customized to fill different roles? Why do you all walk on two legs, like us? Is it so we'd accept you? What did you look like before you crossed darkspace?

Subject: Keep off Havarl

When I heard you were granted permission to land on Havarl, I filed a complaint with Governor Shie. That world is one of our most sacred places, and it is not for outsiders. Even the kett keep their distance, because they know we'll fight to the death to protect it. Anyone who defiles Havarl will face consequences.

Subject: Share your gifts

You built ships to travel across darkspace. Show us how to make them and let us retrace your path. There are no kett where you came from. We have a generation facing extinction, but you could help us go where the enemy won't follow. We've suffered enough. Give us hope for a better life.

Market Terminal[edit | edit source]

Translated from Shelesh:

Subject: Thank you

I remember the first time I met the Moshae. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. She has done so much for our people. When the rumors began that she'd been caught by the kett—and worse, killed—I lost hope for our future. You restored it. I don't care what anyone says. I believe you came to save us.

Subject: Go home

This is not your galaxy. You don't belong here. Anyone who thinks you're different from the kett is a fool. I see you for what you are, and there are many more like me.

Subject: None

If you come in peace and friendship, paavoa. If your hearts are filled with deceit, you will die. That is all you need to know.

Subject: Paavoa

My name is Vjaka. My family said I could write to you. I've never met an alien before, but I'd like to meet you. I think we can be friends.

Resistance Headquarters Terminal[edit | edit source]

Messages to the Nexus Resistance HQ Terminal.png

Translated from Shelesh:

Subject: Join our fight

You proved you can fight the kett on Voeld. The Resistance doesn't impress easily. Stand with us. Together, we will take this war to the enemy's home. We'll make them feel terror. We'll show them despair. We will break the kett, and when that's done, we'll share the rewards of victory.

Subject: Are you at war with each other?

We've seen members of your species act with violence, greed, and selfishness. We've found evidence of your people attacking and stealing from one another. Why do you hurt each other, when only the kett stand to gain? If our people are slow to trust you, it's because we can't understand why some of you seem determined to hurt others. Even the kett stand united in their cause. Why don't you?

Subject: We have much to learn

I've spent my life wondering what other beings might exist. Your people are nothing like what I imagined, and I'm glad for that. I thought I was long past being surprised in life. My sons and daughters draw pictures of you and ask me all sorts of questions. They want to know everything about you. We hope you feel the same way. There's so much we can teach each other.

Subject: I believe in our future

Help arrives when you least expect it, and your arrival was unexpected. You came to Aya wounded and in need, and we didn't welcome you. You went to our other worlds and helped our people overcome terrible challenges with no promise of reward or friendship. You wouldn't do that if there wasn't a goodness at your core. You want to understand and be understood. This is the start of a great alliance.

Tavetaan Terminal[edit | edit source]

Messages to the Nexus Tavetaan Terminal.png

Translated from Shelesh:

Subject: Let there be unity

Before the Scourge, angara were one people. It took centuries after that disaster to find each other again, and by then we'd been divided too long. That's how the kett were able to conquer us. The war forced us back together, but now you've upset the balance. Some don't trust you. Others want you to save us. Divisions are forming. If you're really here to help, keep our people united.

Subject: Paavoa and isharay to you all

I'm writing this in my final days. I've lived a long life that now comes to its natural end. I've known great loss and pain, but also joy and hope. I think we have that in common. My fate is to leave at a turning point in history. Part of me is angry I won't see what happens next, but I've made my peace. Whatever becomes of your people, mine, and the kett will reverberate into the lives of my great-grandchildren, and that gives me strange comfort. I know there's more to this life than war and hardship, and I've seen enough to know your people understand that too. Be well. Take care of each other. Change life for the better. Goodbye.

Subject: We wish you peace and good fortune.

Don't be deceived by the posturing of Evfra de Tershaav and his Resistance. We are not a violent people. We're scientists, inventors, artists, caretakers, and explorers. This is our home, but there is room enough for us all. We told the kett the same thing, but they didn't listen. We hope you do.

Subject: No one will read this

This message will never be read by the Pathfinder, much less reach the Nexus. We're so desperate for allies against the kett that we're willing to make the same mistake with new aliens. This little stunt by the governor won't change anything. We may as well be screaming into the wind.
