Too Long; Didn't Read

The primary sentient species on Teth (who refer to themselves as Teths) are extremely long lived, current estimates propose a lifespan averaging somewhere above four millennia. They are also extremely intelligent and resourceful, having long ago developed an advanced culture and technology including space travel. Hitherto their interstellar travel has been confined to the use of near lightspeed craft that employ conventional pulsed energy propulsion systems.

"Synopsis of Status and Prospectus, including Suggested Resolutions, for the Teths species: Teth, Valis Binary, Chira Cluster"


Synopsis: Looking toward the Valis A sun from Darkor Station on Charn, here our view includes Dal and Teth. Valis A and Valis B are the two suns of the Valis Binary, a system which includes the Dal and Teth planetary bodies along with the moon Charn which orbits around both planets along a complex path.


The primary sentient species on Teth (who refer to themselves as Teths) are extremely long lived, current estimates propose a lifespan averaging somewhere above four millennia, and they are also extremely intelligent and resourceful, having long ago developed an advanced culture and technology including space travel. Valis Binary is part of a fairly dense cluster galaxy (Chira Cluster), and the Teths have explored a large number of nearby star systems over a period of eons, and they have established trade with some of these alien species. Hitherto their interstellar travel has been confined to the use of near lightspeed craft that employ conventional pulsed energy propulsion systems.


Prospectus: However, recent analyses of our routine scans have indicated gravitational wave anomalies that are consistent with the use of new technology by the Teths which is at least very similar to what is deployed in our starjump portals. As of this time we have been unable to ascertain whether the Teths have accomplished this development through their own ingenuity or by observation and study of our deployed technology. However, it is a fair certainty that, save for an intervention, the Teths will very soon have access to some method of starjump technology and the freedom of unrestricted interstellar and intergalactic travel which that entails.


Suggested Resolutions: Our statistical and probabilistic analyses have given consideration to the commercial, scientific, and cultural value of our current intersocietal relationship with the Teths. On balance there is some small benefit to our scientific and cultural ends and a further likelihood of commercial benefits especially since the Teths could be used to serve in an intermediary or agent capacity between us and the collective of stellar systems with whom they directly interact. Our numbers say those already established client relationships with the Teths are of some worth as resources to our benefit.


Our Bayesian behavioral precedent probabilistic analyses indicate that there is a slightly greater than eight in ten chance that the Teths would honor a pledge to discontinue their own starjump research in exchange for some voice in where we might deploy our starjump portals on their behalf, if that proposal were accompanied by our assertion that we will annihilate them completely as a species if they do not discontinue their explorations of starjump technologies.


Based upon the conjunction of our analytics we believe there is a greater than break even likelihood of the success of such an agreement and so we recommend attempting negotiations with the Teths as a participant in our species inclusion program as a logical alternative to species extermination.
