The Sixth Diplomatic Expedition
by Lou J Berger
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
We proudly announce our sixth diplomatic expedition to Sol III with a scheduled arrival on their worldwide Spring holiday of revival.
Due to a curious lack of contact from the previous five expeditions, we are additionally sending four military ships as protection.
Despite being clearly sentient, our Sol III brothers and sisters breathe oxygen, which everybody knows is a caustic poison. To protect themselves, our diplomats will wear protective breathing apparatus containing stores of our life-giving gas, hydrogen sulfide.
Our Engineer Guild are as baffled as the rest of us about why the first five expeditions haven't replied. Although convinced the previous expeditionary fleets were more than suitable for the trip, they have fashioned a massive, ovoid vessel designed to withstand almost any dangers our fearless diplomats may encounter.
