The hunter drones are a creation of the Krelax Dynasty. They have been pursuing this vessel for four thousand, six hundred and nine of your years.

I think I'm going to need a history lesson there.

Affirmative.

The Krelax followed a path not unlike your world's. They chose increasingly despotic rulers...

...until a war was waged over who would be the one true ruler of their world.

Forty-four per cent of their population perished as they used weapons comparable to the nuclear devices of your world.

In the aftermath, the leader who instigated the conflict emerged victorious...

...thanks to a network of secure bunkers where many of his closest associates rode out the nuclear winter...

...before returning to subjugate all other survivors.

Under my uniting rule, we'll make Krela great again!

But I don't like bricklaying, I want to be a prince when I grow up.

In another generation, the survivors became a self-policing fascist dictatorship...

That's not for the likes of us. Krela needs more builders, so get used to it.

Imagine, the secret to travelling the stars, stored on this crystal. Let's find out if the formula works.

...and began to use the abilities of their few great dreamers...

Spred Krelax gratenezz evrywere

...as the platform from which to launch the dominion of new worlds.

We shall go out among the stars and bring my grandfather's order to all the alien scum we find!

It turns out that great dreamers with scientific minds can still fall for evil narratives, which our historians previously deemed hyperbolic.

Soon, they found a neighbouring civilisation and made designs upon its conquest.

Copr sulphate many tree such wow

As post-technological pacifists, the Plytarans were unprepared, but our deceptively superior knowledge staved off their invasion efforts.

The Plytarans being your creators?

Affirmative.

The Plytarans fought back with the defences concealed by their ancestors.

They seized Krelax equipment and vessels...

Hey! Yu gotz intruedarz!eleven!

...and interrogated many captured troopers...

Are you sufficiently fed to answer a few impersonal questions?

...learning with some great difficulty...

Dismiss the guard and I'll teach you all about Krelax supremacy.

...that humane tactics make no headway against zealotry.

Sigh

After countless generations of peace, the Plytarans tapped their violent roots...

...saving their civilisation by abandoning it.

We must ensure these aliens can never threaten anyone again. Fire or be relieved of duty.

Both homeworlds were devastated as the tide of war swept back and forth for a Plytaran lifetime.

To be continued...
