This was until the sky ships came down and attacked their planet, the army wasn't prepared for this, their tribal weapons and armour did nothing against the pirates that attacked. The chieftain called everyone into the palace, his children Delanna and Salassa picked up weapons and stood at the door with the remaining forces of the army to protect the civilians.
As Delanna prepared to arract the first person to break down the front, she stood at the front of the army with her sister next to her. They readied their spears, but then Delanna heard something, the people outside where shooting at something. there was yelling in a language that she couldn't understand.
One of the civilian's started shouting about another sky ship that let loose people, the sky ship was fighting the one that came earlier. This news bolstered the troops that were with Delanna, she still was nervous, they didn't know if these were worst people than the ones who came before.
Delanna heard the fighting outside stop, she didn't let go of her readied spear as she looked at the door. She told the people with her to be ready for anything. As she waited there was a knock at the door, no one trying to break it down just knocks, with some unknown shouting.

In front of her was a giant metal thing with a huge weapon in it's hands. She glare and tried to attack, she knew it was futile but she knew that she would die protecting her people.
When the Person didn't attack she stopped and looked at the person, she moved back and barred their path inside the palace. This was until her father put a hand on her shoulder and told her these people seem to of saved them and don't want to kill them. With this she moves back and her, Salassa and the army kneel for the people who saved them.

When the feast was done, Delanna and Salassa pledged themselves to the rescuers, they wanted to train with these people and learn how to keep their home world safe.

Once in Yamataian space they offered themselves to the army, they trained, learned how to handle their Yamataian weapons, They learnt common and some Yamataian. They weren't fluent in either and messed up a little here and there.
