Rebuilding Triton City [FT]

Triton, moon of Neptune (8th planet of Sol)

After a year of planning, more than a trillion in credits from investors, and a 3 hour trip, a poof of light formed briefly between Neptune and Triton, then faded to reveal the RMF Archer, fresh out of space fold. The carrier, more than a mile long, had been fitted not only for defense purposes but also for transport. Its array of Ion engines roared to life at full force, glowing brightly in the black sky as it built up speed to obtain a stable orbit.

Triton was more important to the Raysian people and the Capsule Corporation, as it was the first homeworld of their ancestors. The Archer was mainly carrying supplies and colonists for establishing a basic outpost, which would grow quickly over the next few weeks.

The Capsule Corporation's intent is to establish a mining and manufacturing colony on the grounds of the original Triton City. There will not be a military base (beyond maybe a self-defense militia) at their city, and CC in no way claims the entire moon as their own.

This reincarnation of Triton City will be the primary Solar trading front for most of the Capsule Corporation imports and exports, and will act as the embassy of Raysia in the Sol system.

Manufacturing facilities and orbital shipyards are planned to enter service in 18 months. This was merely the first run, as several more ships would make the same journey every week, bringing supplies and colonists and pre-fab buildings.

The RMF Archer, however, would stay in geosynchronous orbit as a Defense outpost, and as an emergency evacuation vehicle.

Ooc: sorry for the short dry post, but it had to be done :) If anyone actually claims to own Neptune or Triton, let me know.

From: The United Terran Alliance
To: The Triton Colony
Subject: Affiliation

The United Terran Alliance, wishes to offer an affiliation treaty and protectorate status to the settlement, we think this would be a beneficial relationship as we can provide gate travel and access to many, many markets throughout the galaxy, we can provide protection in case of any attempt at invasion by hostile powers. A common wealth treaty dose not mean you would loose your rights to self government it merely means we ensure your Independence and well being with your own forum of government and the soley ceremonial position as the president of the TA being your head of state.

Sincerely Secretary of state Kate Maryland

From: Administrative Council of Triton City
Subject: RE: Affiliation

We are always looking for people to trade with, especially since we are new to the area.

We would be happy to have a gate in orbit, providing it will be for trading and emergency purposes only. If you would like to view some of our most popular wares, please follow the link to our storefront at the end of this message.

As for an affiliation, we do not wish to brand ourselves with a name and reputation that we know little about. Thank you for your interest, and we would be happy to receive protection should we call for it, as our homeworld is rather far from here.

We sincerely thank you for your interest and support.

ooc: bump/tag/gravedig... I'll post more about this colony soon, once I care to further relationships with Sol...

speaking of which, anyone near Sol interested in starting relations with Raysia or the Capsule Corporation, post something here... they'll probably gladly accept embassies if you wish to have one. I'll post a formal IC effort later, but I just hate to see this die off

((OC- Well my presence (Fractal or otherwise,) would not be considered 'diplomatic' right now and all. After the said event I'm conducting right now, I may have better opportunities, since after my Civil War battle near Jupiter, I'll be needing to clean up my own mess and all. Would be the best time for a whole mess of stuff to occupy moi with, with a lot of other FTers.

Sorry if I'm butting in with this OOC without cause, apologies in advance. (Course one has to make a mistake to apologize. I'd better not keep count or track, in lieu. =^^=;;; ))

To the Honorable Leadership of Triton,

It is our pleasure to extend congratulations to you on your successful endeavor to establish an outpost on the moon of Triton. Acting in the finest tradition of human explorers and pioneers throughout history. Although this is seemingly a return to a previously occupied land, which is somewhat less common than new discoveries, it is still an event which merits recognition. We would, as such, be pleased to make a gift of a modest statue of a famous explorer of many centuries ago, one Vitus Bering, who's explorations allowed the Russian Empire to establish it's colonial presence in California and the Western coast of America, in the hopes that it will inspire your own people to follow the example of the brave and hardy pioneers of the 17th century.

In more practical matters, the Russian Empire is willing to assist in the construction of facilities, with material and human assistance. There is some interest in establishing a permanent Russian presence, perhaps a small trading enclave or post, within the Sol System. Our network of outposts is stretched somewhat thin so far from the primary center of our Empire and ships on long journeys need posts to refuel and supply. And, of course, the presence of Russian vessels would most likely discourage any aggressive moves on the part of those wishing to dispute your claims.

We would further encourage the leadership of Triton to consider membership within the League of Armed Neutrality, which would offer a great deal of protection to it's economic interests with minimal costs or infringements upon the sovereignty of Triton, such as might be incurred by engaging in a protectorate or other subordinate relationship with a larger state.

OOC: I'm sorry, but Raysian and Russian just sound too much alike, alliance denied.

Okay, I'm kidding :P

In reply to Tsar Nicholas IX's offer, The Administrative council of Triton City sends the following reply:

Flag of The Capsule Corporation Worlds
[/float]Our Dear Russian Comrades, we thank you for your warm welcome. We are many thousands of lightyears from our Primeworld, Raysia, and as such, we could use all the warm support we can get. We would be happy to establish trade and tourism relations with your fine nation, especially since the people living here in our city could always use time under a blue sky.

We also would gladly accept any protection you'd be willing to offer us. We know there are many unscrupulous folk out here in the Sol system, but we're willing to risk it to experience the good among you. We can not offer much in return for protection, save for friendship, and a discount at the Capsule Corporation storefronts of exported goods.

As for that statue, we are sure that a fine place can be prepared for such a great and meaningful gesture.

Again, we thank you, and look forward to the future of the relationship between our two nations.

Triton City, Administrative Council
John Triton, Chairman

To the Honourable Administrative Council of Triton and Chairman Triton,

We are pleased that you have accepted our offer. Establishing ties across the galaxy to our mutual benefit and profit is a fine tradition of the Russian Empire and we shall look forward to a prosperous relationship with your city.

Our presence is not, strictly speaking, in the 'Sol' system. We have been assured that our's is simply a fractal Earth derived from your Sol. Naturally, we cannot comment on the truthfulness of this, but, regardless, we wish to establish a trade presence in the 'original', if you will, Sol, since it is something of a hub. There is no need to consider payment, what you have offered us by allowing our presence in the system is far more than enough. With reliable docking rights within Sol, the Russian-Galactic Corporation should turn a very nice profit in your area, no doubt to your benefit as well, given the lower rates they will be able to provide for metals, for instance, from Novo Belarus and Mars.

Your membership in the League is also welcomed. Every new member gives more legitimacy to the cause of armed neutrality in the galaxy at large, and benefits all of those who would prefer to trade peacefully rather than be caught up in the squabbles of others. At whatever time suits you, you may dispatch a small delegation to the League headquarters in the Red Palace on Mars, that is, 'our' Mars, in order to arrange for a League office on Triton in order to allow local merchants convenient access to convoy registration and transit facilities in the galaxy at large.

Tsar Nicholas IX, Emperor and Autocrat of All Russias

Official Message of the United States of Allanea

Dear Friends!

As you know, we are long-standing allies of Raysia, and have long been consumers of its excellent products. It brings joy to us to see our friends return to their ancestral capital, even after so many years of regrettable absence.

The United States of Allanea maintains a wide array of colonies on Earth and in Sol, including the planet Mercury and the various asteroids. We have a sizable military presence here, including the Earth Defense Fleet, and will be willing and ready to assist Raysia in the event of any interstellar emergency.

Should the Raysians require any kind of assistance with their colonization, they need only contact us and we will do our best.

Sincerely yours,
Junior Ambassador Marusia Monningham

Our Dear Allanean Friends,
Triton and the Capsule Corporation would like to thank Allanea for all their support through the years. Naturally, your offer of protection is welcomely accepted.

Triton City Administrative Council,
-John Triton, Chairman

In order to increase the speed at which the Triton colony is created, we have gathered the equipment and materials to construct five nuclear power plants, as well as the uranium-252 to power the plants for 10 years. All this and the schematics to build the plants are available for pickup at our home planet, earth, at your leisure.

OOC: Just to be clear, there is no defining actual nation in NS that represents the original, non-fractal Sol and Earth, right?

To: Whomever this may concern
From: The Ministry of Intergalactic Affairs
Subject: Triton City

We wish to establish a trading route and contracts to this city and/or world. We still have shaky relations with the government in Sol and wish to increase our diplomatic and economical prescence in this region.

Ooc: who cares? That fractal earth crap only started a few years ago. I had a presence on Triton since back when NSEarth was just believed to be a flatspace or gigantic Jupiter-sized planet. So, let's just say it's Sol, the one that exists in FT RP, the sum of everyone that claims sol as their homeworld.

To the leadership and people of the Izandai nation:

We thank you for the assistance, and will gladly give you a discount on our products should you choose to come to us for your Starcraft needs.

John Triton,
Triton City Administrator

To the Daemonicai minister of Intergalactic affairs:

Wow, you managed to get every government in Sol to hate you? That's quite an accomplishment of villainy. Naturally you are welcome to trade with and through our outpost, but don't expect us to get into smuggling illegal items or people into Sol... Though, should you need such services, we can probably find the right people for the job.

We look forward to trading with your apparently-feared presence,
John Triton,
Triton City Governing Administrator
