Governor addresses people of Alpha Centauri

Recommended Posts




Today, following the commence of Operation Salvation, the governor of Alpha Centauri spoke to his people infront of the Federal building on Hesperus City, declaring that the Invasion of Hod was bound to happen, finally fulfilling Alpha Centauri's destiny.


„Since the beginning of humanity we looked up to the stars and saw Alpha Centauri. Since the beginnings of human space travel, Alpha Centauri was the stepping stone for the Federation, and they knew, everybody knew, if we reached Alpha Centauri, we can reach everything else. It was Hesperus that was the first Stellar Colony, it was expensive and the establishment went way past the deadline. And after Hesperus City was erected, we soon learned that we are not alone in space. Space travel wasn’t just limited to humans – oh no. We have made contact – initial contact – with an unknown object in space, a spaceship, never seen before, then titled as UAR-01.


Now we know, the Progenitors were already there, always watching us. They monitored our very first colonisation attempts. They were growing us to harvest us later, but they did not expect the human race to offer fierce resistance. Alpha Centauri, Hesperus, was the first contact with this advanced alien life, the Progenitors. Now, Sol has fallen out of their hands, we have recaptured Earth. The Ark is no more, the Progenitors are but a small pocket on Hod. And today, I stand before you to tell you, that Hesperus was the starting point of the Progenitor Menace, and Hod will be the ultimate end of these alien invaders. It is a dark chapter, the Hesperus Incident has overshadowed our glorious colony of Hesperus and its history. The colony was expensive, the colony was years overdue, the people called this enterprise foolish, but we have repaid every single pound to he Federation and more. The ships of Hesperus are sturdy, finely crafted, known throughout the Milky Way. There’s evidence – clear evidence, Captain’s logbooks – of them saying they wouldn’t have survived space contact if their ship wasn’t launched from a Hesperus Shipyard. And why is that - because of the great people of Alpha Centauri, resilient, precise and tirelessly working. The people of Hesperus are known throughout the Federation. The most glorious Captains of starships are Hesperan – and on every single colony, there’s a human working non-stop in a factory without taking their days off. Coworkers ask if they are crazy, if they don’t ever get tired, if they don't get stressed from work, if they don't get bored – but that man says „No, I’m from Hesperus“.


Now, the Hesperus Incident is being overshadowed by the Invasion of Hod again, but now they are here, in our very own system, stranded with no way out. They are here, in Alpha Centauri, and we are seeking to close the book and end this chapter once and for all. We will use the spirit of the people of Alpha Centauri, no other people than the people of Alpha Centauri could overcome this disaster better. We will fight the Progenitors in every means necessary - we will fight them in the factories, we will fight them in the shipyards, we will fight them in the deep mines of Hesperus, we will fight them in the fields and lastly, we will fight them on Hod.


I personally have created a Task Group Centauri, consisting of our very own 22nd Morita Regiment on Hesperus and the remnants of the 54th Hod Regiment. We will embark, we will travel to Hod, we will strike back and we will win.“


The governor removed a dossier from below the stand and showed it to the public. The dossier was clearly marked in a red font with "UAR-01" - Federal reporters confirmed at this point that the file was indeed the original file from May 14th 2100 - He ignited the dossier, threw it onto the stairs and let it burn down.
