To Wish For Adventure

::And have our starships blown apart as soon as they
entered Euphratorian airspace?::
::That would not happen. You would be monitored but
allowed to speak your need. Since you know Venixen, you
could communicate with us without any problem. I repeat,
we are peaceful. We welcome visitors to our part of the
::Too late. Your motives must be investigated. Prepare
to be boarded.::
