Camera opens to an image of the Empress' Palace in the background. A Yamataian female with short raven black hair enters the frame, across the bottom of the screen Cassandra Roberts YINN Reporter scrolls by. Her pale blue eyes look straight into the camera and the reporter starts to speak.
"Just a few minutes ago a member of the Diplomatic Department came out and read a prepared announcement. Here is what she said." she said.
The image shifts an member of Ketsurui Yuumi's staff approaches a podium. "Today marks the beginning of a new era for the Empire. In the later part of the 34th year of the Empire. Our Empire was approached by a heretofore unknown alien government. This group calls themselves the Poku Degonjo Saeruo, which translates to the Hidden Sun Clan. They are a felinoid species and have four difference races within their people.
The Imperial Premier traveled to the Veronica star system to meet with the Emissary of these people. The historic meeting took place on Chiharu no Iori. Over the past months negotiations have been held to work out a treaty between our two peoples.
Earlier today under tight security, the leader of the Poku Degonjo Saeruo, Mui Tarbah Leyto met with her Majesty to sign the treaty. Present were the Premier and the Emissary from the Hidden Sun Clan."
An image appears to the side of the diplomatic envoy showing Himiko and Tarbah meeting and signing multiple copies of the Treaty. The footage shows the two talking and appearing to be in good spirits.
"The leader or Mui as she is called, arrived on their diplomatic vessel early this morning and was transported by shuttle to the palace.
The Treaty serves as a foundation for future dealings with our new neighbors. One of the things this treaty establishes is the territory of the Hidden Sun Clan which lies some eighty light years south of Yamatai. Yamataian vessels military or civilian should not enter this territory without permission."
An image of the sector map appears with a rectangle marking the territory.
"The treaty calls for the establishment of an Embassy both on Yamatai and the home of the Hidden Sun Clan. Details for these are being worked out at this time.
Additional information on this development will be provided as appropriate. Thank you." The envoy declined to take questions and made her way quickly back into the palace.
Image shifts back to Cassandra.
"We have received an written update from the palace. A delegation is being put together from Yamatai to go to the home our new allies. The Scientific Studies Service will be sending a number of their Tansaku-Class Research Vessels along with the delegation to establish a cultural exchange center, and to learn more about these people.
YINN will be there to report from their home. So the next time you see this reporter I will be there."
