New Worlds to Conquer!


Jarmo Dorak was a young man in his twenties. To be exact, he was 29, but he looked younger. And although he was rather young, he was the chosen one to open up this new section of STAR COMMAND. The part of the galaxy where this was taking place was known as "Urdam Bardogh". And the new section was named STAR COMMAND CLUB. The administration of STAR COMMAND had come to the conclusion that there should be a special division for the people of the Galaxy's planets to help them develop, so they can take part in intergalactic business. This had become necessary, because one regional government of Urdam Bardogh was about to make a bold move: They were widening their territory. The Usovai'i wanted to spread out. Finally. Some time ago they fought a war about this with the natives of the planets. Then they settled the war with an instable peace because of the threat from the Udessarian Empire. During that period the two territories worked closer together. Vespus, the main planet of the Usovai'i, became somthing of a capital for both regions. And now these two were merged together. To be honest, the Usovai'i just paid a lot of credits to the local governments. And in these times they all could use some credits. So they made a contract to form the new alliance under one flag. The VESPUSIAN STAR ALLIANCE (translated). But the administration of STAR COMMAND had the concern that the Usovai'i only viewed the new territory as new worlds to conquer.

It was only a few days before the contract would take effect. STAR COMMAND feared that a rush would start from the old territory to the new and that the settlers would be running over the native inhabitants. In return these inhabitants had to get used to living in a galactic society. Hence STAR COMMAND CLUB was founded.

As a representative of the space fleet Jarmo Dorak went to the planet where the "big contract" (so they called it) had been signed. Here he was supposed be the guest of a ceremony held by locals. The inhabitants of the planet (it was named Ujou) had a long tradition of ceremonies of all kinds. And they invited Jarmo to come to the Oracle of Pyra, where the ceremony should take place. It was a great honour because the place was really old. So Jarmo came there and...

...then it was over. Jarmo Dorak felt strange. It seemed that no time had passed while simultaneously he had the impression that a lot of time had passed. He checked his pocket computer. Half an hour had passed. But he could not remember details. Just... something... feelings. And a message.

"You remember what the oracle said to you?", one of the local priests said from behind, standing in the entrance of the oracle building.

Jarmo turned around. "Yes...", he said slowly.

"Well, then you may go on with your life", the priest replied. "May the Force of Somebody be with you on your task. The Space Fleet will always be welcome here. Remember that!"

"Yes..."

Jarmo walked a few steps. The message from the oracle became clearer in his head.

FIND THE WIND HARP AND YOU WILL FIND THE CUBE OF KNOWLEDGE.

But why should I find this cube?, he thought, and suddenly the answer to his question appeared in his mind: BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED IT. GO FIND IT!

Jarmo was shocked. The oracle was still talking to him! Now he remembered pictures of strange places. Somethin like... a way... to the Wind Harp? Who knew?

He decided to make a report to STAR COMMAND that STAR COMMAND CLUB's start had been a success and to take care of the Wind Harp later...
