I was discussing Triglavian attitudes and motivations towards baseliners with Ilm Gaterau, I have spent a lot of time studying the remnants of Jovian and other precursor cultures with my colleagues and countless hours studying what we know of the Triglavians. It appears that Jovian and Triglavians come from a similar era, although from different haplogroups and each haplogroup has, or at least had a number of Clades. In nature a clade would be a mutation from the base haplogroup, with these folks it probably a deliberate selection or even some advanced form of CRISPR editing, we use similar techniques to repair particular conditions or damage. With the Triglavians they test each one to destruction, possibly trying to avoid the Jovian Disease. Baseliners are mostly an unknown quantity and therefore not even worthy of consideration.
This propensity for genetic manipulation is a form of systemic eugenics. It may even precede the Abyss, not evolution so much as development of the species as they saw fit. I think in the Abyss they probably tried to design changes that would help them survive but everything we know about the Jove suggests they did it too. Developing particular clades that they stuck with.
These guys might even have sabotaged the Jovian genome repository and that’s what led to the Jovian Disease. The sites we label Talocan in Anoikis are containment and quarantine facilities. One way to accomplish CRISPR editing is viral infection. So it is possible that they infected Jovians in order to test their results and maybe develop cell cultures to pollute the Jovian genome; biological warfare of the most heinous kind and banned by all the Empires as far as I am aware. It looks very much like we are dealing with a group that feel theirs is the only way to progress as a civilisation, and may have committed genocide in the past. They have shown interest in Augmented Foreign Narodnya but as guinea pigs for experimentation? If we look at the Rogue Drones, for example, they see some of the higher forms being worthy of testing but the lower ones are just vermin. Is that how they see baseliners? The pro Triglavian capsuleers are simply an angry mob, blinded by some idea that they are far superior to baseliners and deserve to rule the cluster. They may also be the first on the dissecting table. That is something ARC cannot tolerate. We have always lent assistance in humanitarian aid efforts, assisting our allies and affected baseliners alike.
Triglavian society for all they preach their 'Flow of Vyraj is a society based on eugenic racism in effect. From the way they approach things I would say they don’t care what happens to the baseliners, or even the capsuleers they so freely use. The invasion appears to be resource motivated and nothing else, spurred by surveillance on our capabilities and the minimal risk the Drifter seem to present. That might well bite them on the ass. There are rumblings in Anoikis and it does not bode well.
This society seems worse than big brother. Forget about state surveillance, all their folks seem to be monitored by a Koschoi big cheese at an infomorphic level and some kind of mechanical overseer that checks the old rule book before proceeding. As well as having authority to say ‘Game Over.’ From the sound of it the Narodnya might not even have clones. If they mess up they die.
Even to the extent that entire clades might have been wiped out because they did not come up to scratch. I think the majority of the pro Trig movement are motivated by a desire to break the state and greed. They all refuse to see how the Trigs are. ARC always will stand for freedom and respect for all, we try and remain open to communication but when that fails we are able to act positively for the good of everyone, capsuleers and baseliners alike. Even against CONCORD, as has been proven in the past. What communications we have received from the Triglavians have been information they chose to give us and by their own semiotic analysis are they damned. They have refused meaningful discourse and for a seemingly advanced civilisation they show a somewhat retarded reluctance to even learn our language, perhaps that too is a measure of the disdain they show for our society.
