A tremendous opportunity is knocking on our door.
Extraordinary, unprecedented, somewhat dangerous – this is a second time in the recent history that we are presented with an opportunity to actually properly communicate with a foreign civilization.
So let’s not rush in without consideration.
The Triglavian Collective, in their seemingly straight to the point manner, poses a clear ultimatum: they have enemies; they have established contact with Rogue Drones; they are curious about capsuleers specifically.
Are we interested? Absolutely. But do we become friends solely based on our common enemy – the Drifters? We are cautiously hopeful about that.
The Inner Circle meeting on the matter is sure to come out with a result that defines a policy sooner or later, but they surely have their own speakers. It may be that we will need to speak on our own behalf.
The Arataka Research Consortium remains dedicated to its mission – to push the boundaries of the unknown further and further beyond, and to make use of the experience gained from our work for bettering New Eden. As such we welcome the Triglavian Collective to New Eden, our home, and deem it necessary to establish a proper contact to create a proper understanding of each other. The proving Zorya Triglav mentions in their message seems to be a goal that can be achieved by daring capsuleers by itself and we intend to take part in that too.
Meanwhile, understanding that the Collective has a way of monitoring the holonet despite CONCORD’s best efforts, we think that a proper response is in order.
Expect more soon.
