ZZZs is the Intergalactic News Program (IMP) with some fast breaking news stories in the Universe!

Earlier today the twelve races that had suddenly materialized in the Partners in Time universe started activity. These activities seem to indicate that the twelve races will not be content to remain at the planets that they materialized at but may have plans to expand to other stars. IMP reporter Just U. Weight has confirmed reports of ships moving out from many of the planets and signs of construction going on at all of the planets.

In other news, the races all seem to perform their operations at the same time, and it looks like (at least for now) these operations are going to be taking place every thirteen earth hours but it may be less, we will have to wait and see.

The IMP news network has many reporters working for it and looks forward to hearing from some more of them to confirm the reports of Just U. Weight.

Those of use here at IMP are dedicated to the task of bringing the latest information to you, our lucky readers, listeners, and watchers wherever you may be.

This is Simply Raving signing off for now.

WowPEOPLE DEMAND ACTION ON ALIEN PLANET
from the Mancuvian Times - 2403

The discovery of a minor alien planet adjacent to our own, sent the government into turmoil today. While the reigning Eccles Party has yet to release an official stance, there's bitter fighting between the minor Parties, some urging quick destruction of this planet, the more peaceful wanting to make contact first, and the Rhino Party typicaly ignoring current events and putting forward a motion claiming the universe is flat and square.

The representative of the Scouse Party said in his official statement today that "This colony must be destroyed as quickly possible."

The Pipping Party countered that "We must make contact first, blatant desctruction will have untold consequences in the future."

The mood of the general public agree that this colony must go, but no-one seems to agree on the method. In the meantime an armed delegation has been sent to the planet to await instructions.

Alien Invaders!!! In Blobovian Space
2404 Wednesday Thriller
Panic struck in Sunberg when Military Spokesblobs reported that ships with unidentified design and construction were picked up on Planetary Scanners. Un-named but completely reliable sources have stated that, "Our military has gone to the highest level of alertness." There have been major calls up of Naval ship personnel. The presented information leads this reporter to speculate that our government is on a heading for WAR!! When pressed by reporters at Lord Greyskin's Birthday Party, the Emperor said, "Now now, we have been in contact with the governments of the fleets in question. So far there has been no declaration of hostile intentions. But, just the same I have increased military spending. And allocated discretionary funds for the construction and deployment of new military units. Friendly "just passing through" is most acceptable. But, any colonization without negotiation will be considered a hostile act by unfriendly powers and a Casi Bellum."
There you have it. This reporter is planning on buying armament stocks to help fund future college cost of my children.

FR Mic Kulz Calls Alien's Bluff
from the Mancuvian times 2405

Federal Representative and Leader of the Eccles Party, Mic Kulz, saw his popularity soar to unprecedented heights today.

First Mic Kulz released the government action plan on the alien race and planet, now codenamed "Proton"

"I have decide it's in the best interest of our people not to unilaterally take action against this unresponsive planet. I have sent them a statement offering our full support in the removal of their colonist, if they refuse our help then we will take action."

Also secret government memos were leaked to the press today, containing detailed communication with a second, unknown alien race.

The alien message states that:

Quote:

...troubled that Mancuvian Scouts have entered [edited] Space. Very close to the [edited] they are too. So close that we were forced to switch ... production to warship production and will ... defend the frontier


The message also declared a no-go-zone which would effectively limit our territory to one planet.

In his response to the public Mic Kulz declared "There is no evidence of the existance of this new race other than the message they sent us, all scouting and future colonization will proceed as normal. I will not let our people be intimidated by ambiguous unbacked threats."

In a seperate statement Warren Curtis, Leader of the Scouser Party took it one further stating that ".. this is obviously an elaborate hoax."

Sad 2407: Alien Warship detected in Star Dazer Space!

Today the Border Patrol sighted an alien vessel, a Quiik Destroyer, and issued instructions for them to reverse course and leave Star Dazer space immediately or our illustrious fleet will be forced to intercept. Obviously a warhip, it's motive is clearly of a hostile nature and cannot be tolerated. Hopefully, the Quiik's are intelligent enough to withdraw from Star Dazer space before things go too far. Smile

Sorry to interrupt your amazingly busy lives folks Wink this is Eye C. Uucrie of the Intergalatic News Program with a rather slowly breaking story in the PiT Universe.

So far no major battles have been reported although there does seem to be plenty of posturing between the different races who have appeared here in the PiT Universe. It is interesting to note how many of these alien ships pass closely to each other without seeming to notice each other, you would almost think none of them had discovered penetrating scanners yet. Laughing

Some old style communications have been listened to between the different races in the universe and I must say, thank goodness our race moved out of this Universe eons ago for these races sure sound fiesty. Bounce They have not even been in the Universe for twenty universal years yet and there are already talks of war and hostile actions. Evil or Very Mad

As future developments in the PiT Universe occur we will continue to send them direct to your neurons for your enjoyment of these twelve backward races. Wink

Once again this is Eye C. Uucrie signing off for now from the PiT Universe.

2411: Tensions Escalate along the Star Dazer/Hand of Quiik Border!

The Star Dazer empire (such that it is) stands on the brink of war Sad . The Hand of Quiik has ignored our attempts at communication and pleas to setup an equitable border; not even bothering to respond Confused . Multiple ships of theirs have now entered Star Dazer space; a second armed fleet has been detected, a scout, and a colonizer Shocked . Additionally, another race in the area has spoken of problems they're also having with the Hand of Quiik. This other race (name withheld since I didn't have a chance to check and see if it was okay to mention their name) has been most hospitable and we look forward to meeting other races like them! (Just because we can't be friends, doesn't mean we can't be civil). Smile

Regretfully, the Star Dazer's have been forced into implementing a policy of extreme predjudice against the aggressive Hand of Quiik race (not to mention they're just downright rude Evil or Very Mad ). This policy will remain in effect until the Hand of Quiik is ready to change their unjust ways.

Friendly Aliens
2412 Wednesday Thriller
The Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Immigrations are ecstatic over recent talks with our nearest neighbors. We have been barraged in the media with glowing tales of our closest neighbors. The entire capital city is just abuzz with rumor and speculation. New worlds to colonize, new technological breakthroughs to streamline industrial production, and new civilizations to trade with. The stock market is climbing through the roof! BUT, there have been rumors leaking out of the Fortress. In the deep dark night, I have heard, "The Hand," mumbled quickly and furtively. None of the Top Fortress officers would even admit to anything having to do with, "The Hand." All I got was shrugs and smiles, with the words, "Never heard of The Hand." I was tempted to think I was being Handed a job; however, the rumor kept surfacing. Then yesterday, I was visited by a member of SPLAT, our military counter intelligence group. Because of that visit and his high handed tactics, I am beginning to believe the rumors of the existence of an evil warmongering race out there in the universe that once seemed so friendly and inviting to be true. I don't sleep well at nights anymore.

We interrupt the usual programs to broadcast this news report from the UAF's central command:

Citizens of the UAF! In the past few years we detected a growing amount of messages arriving from outer space, those messages turn out to be alien broadcasts from their own planets. This led our top scientists into two amazing discoveries:
1) There are lots of aliens out there.
2) They can listen to our communications.

Although we usually try to broadcast our messages as weak as we can, so others won't be able to intercept our messages, as our empire grow in the galaxy we are forces to broadcast with higher frequencies and more power, possibly allowing the aliens to listen to us. Therefore, our scientists developed a special coding system that should allow no one but our race to understand what is said.

We would start broadcasting with this new system now, should you not understand what is said, contact your local law enforcement office, and the problem would be solved.

Starting new system... Hfd!

Political Fiends!

The Star Dazers have been discovered to lie about how large their area of controled space lies, this is unacceptable, and unless repremands are made in the form of 2000kt of each mineral, we will have no choice but to dictite the border on OUR own terms.

We do not expect payment, this is why we are making prepreations as we speak.

To The Mighty Star Men
I never claimed to own all of space, I merely negotiated a border with you (which you agreed to then promptly violated by colonizing a world on my side). If you feel you have been wronged, why not PM me instead of slandering my name. I can only assume you are an aggressive species (probably due to the a-sexual reproduction you spoke of) trying to win others to your side.

Court Martial in Space!!!
2421 Wednesday Thriller
The commander of the Escort Destroyer #12 was lead away in handcuffs today, after the ship he was on landed at Governing Swamp Spaceport. He is charged with brutally murdering unarmed and helpless colonists at an undisclosed location in space. The Strategic Defence Command spokesblob has been quoted as stating that they are going to ask for the death penalty. They further stated that they were going to offer to replace the blasted ship. I say that the military is beginning to show just how far up the chain of command the xenophobia and hysteria has reached. Given that the Evil Empire of the Hand was trying to infiltrate Blobovian Space, that many of the mysterious disappearances and mutilations of Blobovian children in that region of space are directly attributable to them, and that the Hand is a bunch of cut-throat, dastardly claim-jumpers is no reason for our military to act like pirates, murdering other Innocent races. I say, "Hang 'em High, and let the sun dry him out like a raisin." And, any more of his elk in the boys club known as the Military.

2500 CHILDREN KILLED!!
From the Gaily Man 2422, some text edited for security

Mothers across the globe cried in anguish as the news of the deaths leaked around the world. Apparently this was an attack, by the [peaceful neighbours], that happened a year ago.

We questioned some of the mothers who lost their children on what they thought of the government's actions and their promise to clone replacements.


  • How much of has the loss of your child hurt you?

    Mum 1: There's no pain like the loss of a child, the poor thing never had a chance to live.

  • What about the offer to clone a new child?

    Mum 2: Well he was cloned in the first place, so they aren't offering much, and I don't want to go through that again.

  • Heheh, I know what you mean. So how does this change your opinion of the government?

    Mum 2: Well Mic's a nice lad, but now is the time to be tough, and I just don't know if he can do it.

    Mum 1: This is horrible! How can they let someone [mistakenly] kill our children! Something [does not] have to be done!

Catastrophic Failure of Star Dazer Comm Network

The Star Dazer security council was appalled this year when the entire communications network went down for nearly a full day. Apparently, all communications are being routed through a backwater world called Earth where they are combined and retransmitted once a day (except for weekends). A communications spokesperson babbled something about "using the lowest bidder". When a wind storm (they don't even have climate control yet) in the Seattle area knocked out power, our whole communications grid went down; ships didn't move, production queues sat empty, research wasn't re-prioritized, diplomatic messages weren't sent, etc. Power has been restored, but it would cost too much to move our communications center. Hopefully, this won't be a frequent occurrence.
Embarassed The Star Dazers would like to issue a formal apology to all races for any inconveniences.

Perfidity in Space!!
2024 Wednesday Thriller

The Chronicle reported yesterday that a ship's automatic beacon had been activated last week and patrol ships were sent to investigate when no contact could be made with the ship in question. When the patrol force arrived all they found was an empty husk of a ship. Where there should be clothes, toys, and dirty dishes was nothing but gleaming steel. The entire family had been cleaned out lock, stock, and pseudopod. Even the main computer had been wiped clean. Because it occurred in a region of space near the borders with (censored), and the recent incident with the loss of the colony ship, many felt that it was the (censored)'s way of getting back at us. I have since found some information (from my always reliable sources) that was not reported. It was true that the main computer was wiped and gave no information on the culprits of the massacre. Yes folks, massacre. Turns out that the families little girl, only six years old, was using the learning computer in her room. She had been answering oral questions, learning to extrude her vocopods, when the ship was attacked. So, the attack was recorded from the first clang as the ships met to the last scream as the little girl was shoved out of the open air lock with no suit on. The ship was in vacuum for most of the 10 dekamins that it was on before the auto shut off took over and shut down the learning system. That is probably why the attackers never discovered that they had been recored. Yes, except for little Fernlly's recording of her last minutes of life we never would have known just who attacked the ship. Why the Government should sit on such horrible information is unknown to me. I will say it, nay I WILL SHOUT IT, " THE EVIL HAND DID IT." This is no mistake, not a lost colonizer where the captain stood there to take the blame for his actions. No, this was a SNEAK ATTACK, hidden in the depths of space with an attempt to mask the culprit and blame the innocent. This Means War!! in my book. Write to your Representative and tell him what you feel about this attack.

Hmm... Which battle might this be considering I have not recorded an attack on the Blobs since you stopped attacking my unarmed scouts. Which I might add after our border agreement, were sent out of your space.

Perhaps you are in error and should mandate a oral and written communications course. It would seem that your political bureau, erm, propoganda bureau is well versed in small words. Your Ministry of Peace should strive harder to hide its weapons.
