After a filling meal, Gabriel and Madeline got transport arranged back to the Space docks. The ship looked the same as when they left of course, but now that Gabriel saw it from the air and not at a low angle he saw how large it really was. By his best estimates, it was as wide as four or five 747’s and slightly taller, though it sat lower to the ground. As they arrived Cani’s smaller ship was pulled from the ship’s dock. Its wings were folded to fit and almost scraped the sides as they pulled it out. Cani however, was nowhere to be seen so the pair made their way onboard. They were guided to Derthen’s office and knocked on the door.
They opened the door, Derthen looked up and while he didn’t smile, his fur ridge rose slightly. “Hey dad,” Madeline said as they entered.
“Welcome back, did it go well?” He asked.
“Yes, we got—” Madeline began, but Derthen held up a hand.
“I don’t need to know,” He said, despite the wording, his tone wasn’t dismissive or harsh. “Even if what you want to tell me is no secret, the less that knows the better.”
“Alright,” Madeline said. “We are getting lodging arranged so we will leave the ship, probably today so we need to pack.”
Derthen nodded, “Then I wish you well, take care of yourself, and see me before you leave.” He stood and hugged his daughter. “Gabriel, a word?”
“I’ll start packing,” Madeline said and walked out, closing the door.
“Sir?” Gabriel said.
Derthen sighed, “Take care of my daughter, I would prefer that you don’t drag her around to places like the black market. But, she is as stubborn as her mother on occasion, so just try and keep her and yourself out of trouble.”
“Yes, sir, I’ll do my best.”
“No, your best way of keeping my daughter safe would be giving up on your sister or Mhadeleaine. I hope you will do neither, do your next best,” Derthen said. He even tried a human smile, which looked stiff.
Gabriel smiled back. “That I can promise.”
Derthen walked around his desk and put a hand on Gabriel’s shoulder and moved towards the door. “Good, find your sister, then bring Mhadeleaine home. It’s been quite some time since she brought back a… partner? mate?” He paused and gave Gabriel a questioning look.
“Yes, sir,” Gabriel said, not sure which of the titles fit best.
“Her mother will be pleased, she has already pestered me about getting you to visit.” Derthen opened the door. “Now If you’ll excuse me, I have much work to do.”
“Um, sure,” Gabriel said as the door closed. He stood there confused for a moment before shrugging and heading off to find Madeline. She was in their room, packing bags.
“Hey, that was quick,” she said when he entered.
“Yeah, your father told me to take care of you, then visit your mother before shoving me out the door.” Gabriel grabbed his bag and began packing. He remembered that his phone from earth was still around here somewhere and went scavenging for it.
“Huh, he must like you,” Madeline said grinning.
“You sure? He said maybe two sentences and threw me out.”
“Yeah, but that’s more than most males I brought home. Usually, he stares at them and asks about their finances. What are you looking for?”
“My phone, uh, my earth pcu,” Gabriel said. Madeline opened a drawer and handed him it and Victorias.
“Here’s both.” Madeline went back to her own bag. “As I said, my father is a man of few words. If he talks about anything other than his work it is cause for celebration,” Madeline chirped.
“That so?” Gabriel pressed the power button, finding that his phone still had a little charge, but was in the red. “We got the charger for this as well right?”
“Yeah, the same drawer,” Madeline said. “Can you remember talking with dad about anything other than work or questions you asked?”
Gabriel pulled a round puck-shaped object with two buttons out of the drawer. One button was in the center, one to the side. He pushed the latter and a slot opened, inside were a connector that looked to fit his phone.
“Now that you mention it, no I don’t think I have.” Gabriel plugged his phone in and pressed the central button. the screen on his phone lit up and it started to charge.
“I remember I had to seek him out to tell him about my day or talk about anything other than academics. He isn’t a bad father, I mean he basically forced our government to escort me around when we tried to find you but getting heartfelt conversations out of him is difficult.”
“Speaking of finding me,” Gabriel said as his last clothes went into the bag. “I seem to remember you saying something about your hand when you did.” He walked over and took her left hand. Her artificial ring finger and pinkie curled around his hand.
“Yes, and they are here on Mhinos. After I woke up in the hospital, my dad had them grown, and during our transit, they were shipped here.” Madeline sighed, wiggling her prosthetics. “I’ve kinda grown used to these, I still think they’re cool. But it will be nice to have my own back.”
“I can imagine, and I agree, they are cool,” Gabriel smiled and kissed her hand.
“Maybe I’ll get lucky and we ship out before I can have the procedure?” Madeline smiled and squeezed his hand, kissing it in return.
“Is time not an issue?” Gabriel asked and pulled her close.
“Not, really. Well, I suppose it’s a money issue,” she said, running her free hand over his chest. She rubbed her cheek against his and pulled him close. As Gabriel reached around her waist moving his hands down, but before reaching her shapely posterior she pulled away. “Now help me pack, and we can get back to this– ” she gave Gabriel a very good seductive smile, “–when we get to our lodgings.” She walked over to the wardrobe and began pulling clothes.
Gabriel smiled and sighed simultaneously and walked over to help her, “Tease.”
They quickly got the rest of Madeline’s stuff packed and Gabriel shouldered both bags. “Right I think we got everything. Well except my armor.”
“Oh right, well we have to leave it. I’ll ask dad to deliver it to the new ship, wherever that one is.”
“I suppose walking out in it is not an option?” Gabriel asked, already sure of the answer.
“No, you can’t legally wear it unless you are on a ship where your status is recognized. Or involved with the Security department I suppose. We have to ask.”
“Right,” Gabriel said as they headed towards the airlock. “Should we really leave before we get somewhere to stay?”
“Good point, wouldn’t want you to carry our bags around all evening,” Madeline said chirping. “Let me talk to dad and if we still haven’t heard back from Rik’Tensel we can send a message.”
Gabriel dropped both bags and sat down on the closest couch to Derthen’s office. “Sure, take your time.”
“Thanks,” Madeline said and kissed his cheek before heading into the office.
Gabriel leaned back and picked up his still charging phone. This charger worked wonders, during the 10 minutes while they finished packing it was almost back to full charge. He unplugged it and stuffed the charger in his bag.
Then he took a deep breath and unlocked the phone. No new messages. Gabriel was thankful for that, and at the same time not. Scrolling through the old texts confirmed some of what he already suspected. He had been driving to his parent's house and had picked up Victoria on the way. However, since he didn't have any texts from after telling Victoria he was at her apartment he could not tell if they arrived or not. Sighing and suppressing a pang of nostalgia he began scrolling through his apps. He still had a lot of music, a weather app, one that kept tracks of his physical training…
“I’m an idiot,” Gabriel said to himself. He had all his physical training for the past year on his phone. And a stopwatch. He wondered where Alith and Morthri had disappeared to. He stopped one of the hired security guards. “Hey, have you seen the doctors? Morthri and Alith?”
“I think they are packing up at the clinic,” the guards said.
“Thanks,” Gabriel stood and headed off in that direction. With Deana’s arrest, he had completely forgotten the fact that the doctors hadn’t gotten off the ship. They were in the room with the others planning to get off but stayed behind.
He reached medical and knocked, Alith opened the door and performed a quick bow, “Gabriel, what brings you here?”
“Mostly the fact that I’m an idiot,” Gabriel said and stepped in. “I have a stopwatch on my phone, er, human pcu, I have my training for the entire year before I was taken documented and I happen to know that the port is exactly 3,5 millimeters.” Gabriel held out the phone for them to see. “And while editing photos, I can change the dimensions to show centimeters, you can use that right? Or measure from the screen?”
Morthri and Alith stood stunned for a moment, “Yes… yes we definitely can,” Alith said nodding rapidly. “This is fantastic news, the tests will be more accurate and we can find out what...” he trailed off.
“What?” Gabriel asked.
“Our suspicions will be easier to confirm,” Morthri said. “But before we say anything for sure, we plan to recreate your gravity using a special lab in the Union building to get better measurements, this will expedite the process.”
“Alright, I still want to know what secret you are keeping from me.” While Gabriel trusted the two doctors it still didn’t feel right to be left out.
“What we can tell you now, is that some measurements were off. This was after the first ones you did on US535. We have confirmed that it’s nothing dangerous and in fact, it’s beneficial to your health from what we can tell.” Morthri took a deep breath and sighed. “I would prefer to give you accurate data before telling you more. With you pcu we can have that prepared as early as tomorrow.”
Gabriel gave both a long look before nodding, “Alright,” he removed the passcode from his phone and showed them how to unlock and use it, along with what apps they needed. “I would like all my pictures and music to be sent to my pcu, but those are private so I want to be here for it.”
“Of course, are you willing to give the Union access to some?” Morthri asked.
“We’ll see, I have some nature pictures I wouldn't mind sharing. But I want to be here for the transfer.”
Both doctors nodded, “We will arrange it, tomorrow as well? Oh, and we will need to use the Union’s lab for this.”
“Yea, I suppose that’s fine.” Gabriel nodded again, more to confirm to himself. “Alright, I’ll see you later, call anytime if you find something.”
“Thank you,” Alith said.
Morthi gave him a polite nod as he walked out. Gabriel pondered what he could sell from his phone on the way back. He didn’t have many pictures of people, in fact, he rarely took pictures at all. He was sure Victoria had taken a selfie with his phone with him in it. But he didn’t even have a picture of his parents. He reminded himself that he used to call them every now and then and that pictures weren't his thing. Victoria probably had more, but he didn’t know how to unlock her phone.
Getting back to his bag, Madeline was nowhere to be seen. So probably still talking to her dad. Gabriel sat down again and pulled out his pcu, this time just going over letters and trying to memorize some words. And after just a few minutes of that, he got bored and switched to trying to find out how much money he had.
It took a minute or so to find the correct app, “Alright let’s see here,” Gabriel mumbled to himself. The first was a list of payments, but no numbers. “Test taken on US535, bla, bla bla,” Gabriel mumbles as he skipped over the dates, specifics, time it took, etc. Then he reached a section stating how many hours his tests and records had been worked on. He appeared to received payment depending on not only how many tests he took, but also how long the results were studied. If he read it correctly.
“Looking at anything interesting?” Madeline said. Gabriel had not even noticed her returning.
“Sort of, trying to find out how much money these tests payout.” Gabriel kept scrolling through the substantial rapport, listing results with comparisons to things Gabriel had no reference for.
“Ah, here we go,” Gabriel said as he reached the bottom, “The amount deposited to the account of Gabriel Issac Walker, based on 200 hours of combined research by Morthri Pequen and Alith Sooma, along with the tests performed–Jesus, not more padding–bla bla bla, is… ”
“Is?” Madeline asked.
“Um, how… How much did you say your father made in a year?”
“About 100,000… why?”
“And you have 10 months yeah? 35 days a month?”
“Admittedly I’m not great at Station standard numbers but.” Gabriel read the numbers again. “But this says 8710 does it not?” Gabriel showed her the pcu. Madeline’s eyes widened.
“Yes, it does. Scroll more,” she said.
Gabriel scrolled down to a summary. “Oh, for fuck sake, put the summary at the top,” He complained. “Right, Morthri had worked with my tests for 147 hours with 30 credits and hour. Alith worked with him for 53, that’s 60 an hour then. And three scans and one physical test all pay out 280 each.”
“Huh, I guess we can afford shopping after all,” Madeline said.
“All this as passive income,” Gabriel blew out a long breath. “I guess being the only known alien of a new species pays out.”
“I guess so, not very reliable though. But I suppose sharing some data with the Union would pay even more.”
“Probably,” Gabriel said. “By the way, can I turn numbers into my own? Or why does only text work.”
“Numbers are usually not part of languages, but yeah, someone can probably do that for you,” Madeline said and picked up her bag. “While I talked to dad I got a message from Krihana about a place to stay. There is a nice hotel within walking distance from the Union building.”
“Great,” Gabriel said and stood up. “Are we paying for it?”
“Not tonight, but she wants to arrange something with you tomorrow.”
“Probably more tests, which I am getting sick of by the way. Although they pay nicely.” Gabriel led the way out and stopped at the platform. “Now, how do we go about getting a taxi?”
“Transport to the hotel,” Gabriel said. Then he frowned, “Why didn’t taxi translate?”
“What is it?”
“Basically a service offering transport, either called or just on the streets in many places.”
“We have that I think, but we call it Hired Transport Service, HTS. Well, HTS contains...taksies, flights, and space travel. But we can call one to take us to the hotel.” Madeline said and picked up her pcu.
“Do that, I’d rather not walk,” Gabriel said looking out over the city and barely making out the Union tower in the distance.
Madeline chirped and called for a similar flying transport like the one they rode to the Union building, but not as fancy. Regardless of how much the vehicle cost, they made their way to the hotel without any issues. They stopped at street level and got out, Gabriel got several stares as they walked in. Though he had mostly gotten used to them at this point. He saw a family of Akrons that did indeed almost look similar to the grey aliens of human culture. Granted they were blue, more proportionately built, and had ears. Gabriel tried to ignore the onlookers and picked up the bags before they headed inside. Gabriel followed Madeline up to the reception but let her do the talking while he looked around.
The colors were a bit off, but otherwise, it looked like a human hotel. Gabriel was used to while, black, gold, and red, but here it was more colorful. The walls were white but with colorful abstract paintings, the roof was blue and the floor had several colorful mats. It was a bit over the top but everything was selected and placed carefully and didn’t clash too much. At least not to Gabriel’s untrained eye.
“Here we are, two rooms, number 267 and 268, already paid for,” the Phigos receptionist said as Gabriel began paying attention.
“Thank you,” Madeline said and accepted two square keys. They walked to a thankfully empty elevator.
“I’m not used to so many people staring at me,” Gabriel said after the doors closed.
“You’re a bit different from the pictures,” Madeline said. “And It takes the attention from me,” she added happily. “Not many have seen a Zilgi either, but everyone knows of us.”
“I suppose so, you said you people are just getting civilians to space?”
“More or less yeah, but we’ve had emissaries out for a generation at least. Not to mention pictures of our planet and people. I would love to see some of Earth.” she said and smiled at him. Gabriel in turn froze realizing his phone had exactly that.
“… Um, speaking of pictures,” Gabriel said sheepishly. “I kinda have some on my phone, that I loaned to Alith and Morthri.”
Madeline tensed somewhat, “I see,” she said as the elevator pinged. “And why haven’t you shown them to me?” She folded her arms over her chest and gave Gabriel a very good ‘what do you have to say for yourself young man’ look.’
“I sort of forgot?” Gabriel said. Madeline sighed and walked out ahead. “I’ll promise to show you before handing any off to the Union,” Gabriel said.
“What kind of pictures?” She asked.
“Most are of nature or some interesting things, or from work, serial numbers, and that.”
“Any of your sister?”
“I might have one or two,” Gabriel said as Madeline stopped outside the first room. “Are you mad?”
Madeline sighed, “No, not really, I’m used to you being… what did you call it, scatterbrained?”
“So, as long as you show me all of your pictures, and I mean all of them, I forgive you. If you by some strange reason have pictures of Victoria she wouldn't want anyone to see, I suppose you can avoid those.”
“I love you,” Gabriel said. “And while I’ve seen a few pictures of Zilg, do you have any of your family?”
“No, I had some on my first pcu, but that one disappeared when I was kidnapped. But I can ask my mom for some,” Madeline said as she inserted the key into the first room.
The lock beeped and the door opened. It had a large bed against the left wall, a washroom closer on the left, and a table with two chairs on the right alongside two wardrobes inserted into the wall. It looked like a hotel room you could find pretty much everywhere. Or at least a high-class room as everything looked of high quality. The view was also very nice, looking out over a park and a fountain.
“Huh nice view,” Gabriel said and put the bags down.
“And here’s your key,” Madeline said, smirking and handing him the other.
“As If we’re not sharing,” Gabriel said, looking at the key.
Madeline put a hand to her chest in mock shock, “An ambassador and an emissaries daughter in bed together? People will talk.”
Gabriel narrowed his eyes and smirked, “Good point, see you tomorrow,” he said and picked up his bag.
“Wait, wait, sorry,” Madeline chirped and grabbed his arm.
“No, you make a good point,” Gabriel said, teasing her. He turned around and stepped forwards, almost until they touched, “Unless you have a reason for me to stay?”
“Hmm,” Madeline hummed, she tried to look serious but her fur ridge was standing up, “I may have some exercises to promote cooperation and relations.” She said professionally as she walked around him and locked the door.
“Oh, do tell.”
Madeline tilted her head up almost to kiss him but stepped back and pulled down her pants, then she walked over to the bed while reaching to her back. Her dress fell away and she was left standing in just underwear.
“It involves two partners, one bed and very little clothes.” She sat down, leaning back with one leg over the other. “Interested?”
Gabriel dropped the bag to the floor and began unbuttoning his shirt, “Are you seducing me miss Nioni?”
“Not at all,” Madeline said as her gaze moved up and down Gabriel’s chest. “Like I said, just an exercise.”
“In what, pray tell?” Gabriel moved over to the bed and ran his hands up Madeline’s thighs.
“Foreplay, sex, cuddling and we’ll see if we have time for anything else,” Madeline smiled as she wrapped her arms around his neck. “You in?”
“I will be after foreplay,” Gabriel said.
Madeline chirped and twisted them around, pushing Gabriel down on the bed and straddling his legs. “Your puns I swear,” She unbuttoned his pants and pulled them down. “Now then,” she said and laid down on Gabriel’s chest, their noses almost touching. “The first exercise...”

So, I gave Stellaris a whirl (playing a non-up-to-date version, JIC; very jaded about development of Paradox titles that aren't CKII) and to my satisfaction I could roleplay/worldbuild pretty decently. I end up playing at a very slow pace, writing stuff down and renaming almost all that is renameable, but it's been fun so far. Now, having completed my first campaign, I've spent some effort getting all the info I'd jotted down organised nicely so that I have a good overview of what I've worldbuilt. Below is the result, copied from a Word file and touched up with markdown (there probably are better ways to do that, but that should work). Maybe somebody will be interested in this sort of metagaming/worldbuilding I do. Anyways,
A brief look at Sekstarimenta’s circa 2299: A galaxy Dominated by Sekstan Pha’a’a
Linguistics of Sekstan language.
Phonetic pronunciation is used with some exceptions. “C” is always pronounced the same as “S”. “J” is always pronounced analogous to “dzh” (the latter spelling not being a part of Sekstan). A slight (imperceptible) difference exists between “ph” and “f” (which is much less common). The letter combination “ae” is generally pronounced as a diphthong (deep “Э”). Possessive is formed by the addition of “n” at the end of the word. Plural is formed by the addition of “ri” at the end of the word, and usually shifts the stress in non-monosyllabic words (ex. “Ditel” – 1st syllable stressed; “Ditelri” – 2nd syllable stressed). Words might have a one-letter postfix separated by an apostrophe, which might further be compounded (ex. “Pha’a’a”); such postfixes have a “voiced” pronunciation. “W” is always followed by a vowel.
0 – “Ls”
1 – “Es”
2 – “Sn”
3 – “Phe”
4 – “Sia”
5 – “Sen’a”
6 – “It”
7 – “In”
In Sekstan, quantity is indicated by adding “a” at the end of the number, with no plural form applied (ex. “Sna Seksta” – 2 Sekstari). A two-digit number has the second digit take the possessive form in addition (ex. “Sna Esn” – 21).
A selection of Sekstan words.
Sekstava – “Seksta-oid”
Seksta – own race, Sekstari (pl), Sekstan (adj)
Tn – ship prefix, short for “Tnon” – “starvation caravan”, which in the past were caravans travelling away from regions of famine with intent of colonization.
Ant – “agrarian”, Antri (pl)
Salvatea – “male”, stress on the 2nd syllable (stressing on the 3rd one is a common mistake)
Phams – “Consul”
Pha’n – homeplanet
Yawa – homestar
Kut – “solar system”
Eve – “desert”
Imachin – “city at oasis”, stress on 2nd syllable
Ditel – “ideology”, Ditelri (pl)
Centure – meritocracy principle, first formulated by Bephor Hae
Sekstan Pha’a’a – “Sekstan state”, “Sekstan people’s exclusion of foreigners” (lit)
Baska’t – state symbol, symbolizing the farmlands of the pha’a’a being under defense
Snall – “projectile weapon”
Of’a – “military ship”
Sekstarimenta’s – homegalaxy
Nautiluses – “elliptical”, the shape of the Sekstarimenta’s as well as the fueltanks on powered exoskeletons.
Po’p – “alien”
Wat – “normal”
IT – “FTL”
Takish – “adjacent region”, “neighborhood”
Pout – “apocalypse”
Fortunatala En – “Dark Wanderer”
Slo-Movenn – “Of civilization”
Haes – “battlefield”
Ou’t – “religious”
Ditel Of – “militarism”. Called “a Ditel of imagination” by Phams Moatis Snall. 39% of residents of Sekstan Pha’a’a consider it the most attractive Ditel to them, while 37% consider themselves to be its followers. Its opposite, pacifism, is attractive to only 8%, but 15% claim to follow it at the moment.
Ditel A’a – “xenophobia”. 16% of residents of Sekstan Pha’a’a consider it the most attractive Ditel to them, while 14% consider themselves to be its followers. Its opposite, xenophilia, is the most attractive to 8%, and 9% claim to follow it at the moment.
Ditel Phn – “democracy”. A similar Ditel, egalitarianism, was declared the most attractive of all by 13% of residents of Sekstan Pha’a’a, but only 5% claimed to follow it.
Ditel Mosak – “ideology of citizen service”, a combination of Ditelri Of and Phn
Ditel Si – “ideology of Sekstan supremacy”. Was shaken by the complexity of Irassian technology.
Ditel Phis – “ideology of Seksta-centric universe”. Was shaken with discovery of Irassian Concordat.
Ditel I’s – “austerity”
Ditel To – “survivalism”
Materialism – a Ditel which appeared the most attractive to 16% of residents of Sekstan Pha’a’a, and had 13% as its followers.
It’s – one of the nations of Pha’n before the unification, had achieved some of the first breakthroughs in the field of Nuclear Fusion.
Sekstan Pha’a’a – a citizen republic that had been united by force on Pha’n in Yawa Kut, and eventually dominated the entire Sekstarimenta’s. Guided by the Ditelri Of (to an Extreme level), A’a, Phn and Mosak, as well as centure. Utilises Warp-based IT drives. A long-time rival of Jurinn Imperium, against which it had fought and won a defensive war known as the Jurinn-Seksta Dispute (2262-2274), humiliating it and forcing it to cede 5 planets (their original names being: Zichash, Xansh, Zoirch, Jurandar, Jazix). The Pha’a’a knows the secrets to fighting the Void Clouds and utilizing Cosmic Ray Catalysis, and uses state repression against pacifism and xenophilia. Its population (over 156 billion by all accounts) is 50% Seksta; 33% Caloctora; 6% Zik-Mok; 6% Robot and 2% Tarassi with Jurinn not even making 1%. It stretches across 13 planets, and possesses large stockpiles of Food enabling significant growth.
Irasssian Concordat – more than a million years old extinct empire of the past, destroyed by the Javorian Pox.
Jurinn Imperium – a despotic hegemony that originated on Sekstandar (Jurandar in the past), in a Kut previously known as Jurik Than. Utilises Hyperlanes-based IT drives. An Extremely Materialist Imperial state founded on the basis of Syncretic Evolution and Aristocratic Elites. While initially Pacifist it embraced an internal faction called Path to Victory Committee and the Ditel Of in 2288. It had closed borders to the Sekstan Pha’a’a in 2240s, quickly becoming its long-time rival, and eventually starting and losing a war against it, being humiliated and forced to cede 5 planets - against its initial demands of destroying a Frontier Outpost at Niamba and “liberating” 4 planets of the Pha’a’a. The Imperium controls 3 planets (Rixish in Haramuth Kut; Xortesh in Tediss Kut; and the capital world Cartox in Hhabban Kut). Its population is 100% Caloctora, totaling about 40 billion, the Jurinn founders being within rounding error. When compared with the Sekstan Pha’a’a its fleet is inferior and pathetic in size, but its technology is only a little behind if at all.
Pirates – a massive pirate force reigns in Regor, empowered by ships from the ancient past. It was their influence that produced the Sekstan Dread Suns force that rebelled against the Pha’a’a. The connection of Regor pirates to privateers elsewhere is unknown, if existent.
United Caloctora Confederacy – a short-lived uprising that happened on Zoirch (which was soon to be renamed Sekstaribin) in 2276 which was defeated by the planet’s garrison without much difficulty.
Seksta – Sekstava, Antri, Eve preference. There’s approximately 82 billion Sekstari across 7 worlds, and only they are eligible for any military service (and, therefore, a Full Citizenship) in the Pha’a’a, receiving Decent living conditions and no special restrictions regardless of martial history. Sekstari are a warlike species, considering orbital bombardment much less glorious than ground invasion and having traditions that encourage waging offensive wars.
Jurinn – reptilian, Slow Breeders, Fleeting, Thrifty, Strong, Charismatic, with Savannah preference. Evolved syncretically with Caloctora. Less than 1 billion of them remain in the Sekstarimenta’s (on Sekstandar), and near-total extinction is nigh as they have been branded Undesirables and have been getting displaced en masse by the Sekstan government, with the Jurinn government absolutely failing to accept any non-marginal numbers of refugees, effectively leading to entire ships being sent into space towards certain death. The much-culled Jurinn elite still rules the Jurinn Imperium, however, their miniscule numbers be damned.
Caloctora – plantoid, Proles, Strong, with Savannah preference. Evolved syncretically with Jurinn. 55 billion of them reside within Sekstan Pha’a’a (where they only have Residence rights, survive on Subsistence, are restricted from serving in the military, procreating beyond their numbers, migrating or becoming colonists) and 40 billion of the others make the entirety of the Jurinn Imperium, making them the most widespread race in Sekstarimenta’s.
Zik-Mok – a dictatorial civilization from Skerin Vak in Esmike Kut. Fungoids in a Machine Age, Fleeting, Nomadic, Repugnant, Adaptive, Strong, with Continental preference. Extremely materialistic, authoritarian. Eventually achieved the splitting of the atom in 2288. Subjugated by the Pha’a’a in 2290, this civilization thus ended up as the final stepping stone on the path to Sekstan Pha’a’a dominating the whole of Sekstarimenta’s. Within the Pha’a’a they toil as Chattel Slaves, living in Impoverished conditions and being exempt from military service and ability to migrate, but facing no restrictions beyond that. In 2299 they number about 10 billion.
Tarassi – an oligarchic civilization from Goz in Banphelgaum Kut. Mammalians in a late Bronze Age stage, Antri with Ocean preference. Have had a history of brutal warfare. Extremely xenophobic, spiritual. Subjugated by the Pha’a’a in 2241, and since then toiling as Chattel Slaves living in Impoverished conditions. They are additionally prohibited from serving militarily, migrating and procreating beyond their numbers, and therefore a steady number of 4 billion remains on Goz.
Birnathi – a dictatorial civilization from Jem-Fhengoorem in Antares Kut. Mammalians in an early Industrial age, Talented, Nomadic, with a Tropical preference. Extremely authoritarian, militarist. By 2291 had reached Early Space Age, while Antares Kut was now within the borders of Jurinn Imperium. Population of about 8 billion.
Uva-Xavani – avian, Intelligent, with Continental preference. Make up the Artisan Troupe on an Enclave in Hodranus Kut. Democratic, extremely xenophilic, spiritualist. Largely subordinate to Sekstan Pha’a’a.
Xuri – reptilian, Thrifty, have an unclear origin and thus no discernable climatic preference. Make up XuraCorp on an Enclave in Tropallum. Oligarchic, extremely materialistic, xenophilic.
Tezekian – avian, Thrifty, with Alpine preference. Make up Curator Sigma Enclave, which was founded by powerful empires eons ago to prevent a dark age, but failed to do so, and is located at Ter Meku Black Hole. Oligarchic, pacifist, extremely materialist. Their conversations are apparently being monitored by 7 different subspace realms, interaction with which is technologically difficult. Largely subordinate to Sekstan Pha’a’a.
Hjannarthi – molluscoid, Industrious, with Arctic preference. Make up Curator Lambda Enclave in Gatria Kut. Oligarchic, pacifist, extremely materialist. Their conversations are apparently being monitored by 7 different subspace realms, interaction with which is technologically difficult.
Titans – a species native to Rik in Tigira, gigantic in size. Since 2249 some have been serving in the Sekstan military, after contact was established. In 2255 their numbers on Rik were at approximately 125k individuals.
Irassians – mammalian, 6-limbed, had very weak immune system, died out to Javorian Pox.
Dathnak – gaseous beings from the planet of Pli’t in Alpha Centauri, which they called Tollok Rong. Massacred heavily by an ancient radiation bombing, they appealed to the Sekstari for evacuation but were refused help. Were the first living aliens encountered by the Pha’a’a. Hated solid lifeforms.
Core worlds and sectors of the Sekstan Pha’a’a.
Aeropae’n – this Arid planet is the most productive of the core worlds, more productive than the entire Jann sector, and also is the smallest one, Jann sector notwithstanding. It has the 2nd largest food deficit after Akros’s, but also exactly the same (rather huge) Mineral production as the entire Jann sector. Located within the Shutra Kut, it is inhabited by 13 billion Sekstari and boasts a Spaceport with an Observatory and a Solar Power Module. Much of its development could be attributed to the Governorship of Mphumba Gowon.
Pha’n – the capital world and the homeworld of the Sekstari, this Eve planet has a fairly standard size and is located in Yawa Kut. It is a vital center of Engineering research, only outdone by Phebalaerik sector. The planet is populated to the brim with 16 billion Sekstari, and boasts a Spaceport with not only an Observatory and Solar Power Module, but also facilities for expedient construction of Corvettes and Destroyers.
Akros’s – the most recently colonized planet of the Pha’a’a, Akros’s is a quarter larger than Pha’n, and is similarly an Eve biome planet. It has a huge food deficit, being reliant on the rest of the state, but produces more Energy Credits than any other entity except Phebalaerik sector as a whole. It does not have a Spaceport of its own, and is only partially colonized still with just 12 billion residents.
Tnon – a slightly underdeveloped Eve planet within Alpha Centauri Kut, this world has a rather standard size. Its biggest claim to fame is its Physics research, which lags only slightly behind the outputs of Jann and Phebalaerik sectors. 15 billion Sekstari call this world their home, and rely on its Observatory- and Solar Power Module-outfitted Spaceport. In 2240s-50s Tnon had a problem with criminals evading justice.
Hert sector – the oldest of the sectors has changed its shape and composition throughout history, but hardly its importance. It contains 4 planets (the sector capital of Sekstaribin, Goz, Haes and Sekstandar) that added together would make a body 5.25 times the size of Pha’n, and has a total population of about 56 billion, the overwhelming majority of them Caloctora, and also Robots, Tarassi and the few remaining Jurinn. Hert produces the overwhelming majority of Food in Sekstan Pha’a’a, with just over 7 times the output of Pha’n. The sector produces an amount of Unity and Minerals equal to none but the Phebalaerik sector, and is second only to it in Society research. As is the case with the other sectors, its Minerals output is taxed at 0%.
Jann sector – a sector of 2 planets (the sector capital of Jukin and Zichash Garebech), the added-together size of which would only beat Akros’s by 35%. 14 billion call it their home, up to 13 billion of them being Caloctora, the rest being very recent Sekstan immigrants. Jann produces essentially 0 Energy Credits of its own, being reliant on central authorities. It shares the 1st place in Physics research with Phebalaerik sector.
Phebalaerik sector – the newest sector that consists of 3 planets (the sector capital of Aerae, Rik and Skerin Vak) that added together would be 3 times the size of Pha’n. 33 billion belong to its territory, the majority of them Sekstari, but also Zik-Mok and Robots. Phebalaerik is the 2nd largest supplier of Food, and the 1st in Energy Credits, Unity, Physics, Society and Engineering research
Factions of Sekstan Pha’a’a.
March of the Brave is led by Governor Son’a Turgeneph and has 53 billion supporters. The faction is moderately supportive of the government. It has at least a billion supporters on each of the 11 non-slave planets of the Pha’a’a; and huge majorities (11 and 7 billion respectively) belong to the faction on the worlds of Pha’n and Akros’s, with the latter’s numbers repeating on Tnon and Aeropae’n and almost repeating on Rik and Sekstaribin.
National Stability Network is led by Scientist Hortensia Velazso and has 24 billion supporters. The faction is enduring repression and is extremely unhappy with the government. It has scattershot support throughout the Pha’a’a, but mostly on Po’p worlds: 5 billion on Sekstandar, 4 – on Sekstaribin, 3 – on Aerae etc.
Seksta Ascendancy Front is led by Governor Lin Kstu and has 20 billion supporters. The faction is very happy with and supportive of the government’s conduct. Its biggest support comes from Tnon and Aeropae’n (4 billion each), but around 3 billion supporters of SAF can be found on each of the other Sekstan-majority worlds as well.
Association of Technological Mastery has been led from the beginning by Governor Manuel Rosario and has 15 billion supporters. It is extremely happy and enthusiastic about the government’s policies. It is primarily a Po’p faction, with 6 billion supporters on Sekstaribin and 4 – on Sekstandar, but it also has 3 billion supporters on Aerae and 1 billion on such different worlds as Akros’s and Haes.
Alien Equality Organization is led by Governor Jie Konk and has the same size as AoTM. It endures significant repression, and its hatred and malice towards the government absolutely could not be greater short of open revolt. It’s an all-Po’p organization with very strong support on Haes (7 billion), significant support on Sekstandar (3 billion) and, other than on Jukin, more than 1 billion of supporters on each of the other Caloctora-majority worlds, with Jukin only having 1 billion.
