    1,000 stars is almost mind boggling. He'd had have to have been participating in almost every first contact conflict since the creation of the Contact Corps.

    I think you might be dealing with first generation contact vet.

    Guys. Oh man. I just got back from six months on a Dhhhn survey vessel- I was there on a xenolinguistics exchange. And man, are the Dhhhn fun. I mean, once you get past the fact that they're fifteen-foot-long sloths with insect legs and moss for skin, they're such bros! Their atmosphere and gravity is comparable, we can eat roughly similar food (the concept of frying blew their minds), and they're surprisingly accommodating considering how big and carnivorous they are.

    Anyone else spend any time with Dhhhn? I mean aside from the excessive air moisture and spore problem, they're such bros.

I'm a big fan of post-revo ultracore speed-demon punk-rap, but I'm stuck on a ship full of Gr'll, and whenever I turn on my tunes, they start making noises like I just put their balls in a meat grinder and straight up beg me to turn it off, even if I use headphones.

    Cargo pilot schmuck here. Just looking for /gc/'s advice on an issue I have:
    Earlier this week I found out we have a rat infestation on the ship. They're technically uplifted, but as a result of random mutations instead of purposeful ones, so they're basically near shit-tier intelligence (Still don't hold a candle to Tircs, but they're about as dumb as you can get and still create FTL). However, we're on a grain cargo vessel from Angria II to some bass-ackwards moon in a system three jumps from here. So this is my question:

    Is is acceptable to vent them, or at least stick them in an E-pod and blast it towards the nearest detectable radio signal? I'd feel like an ass doing so, but they don't have any sort of contraceptives or anything and nearly 10% of the cargo by weight has been eaten. I've done the calculations based on their progeny rate and I think they'll be nibbling on my rations (and possibly me) inside of a month?

    So what the fuck do I do?

    The anon rooming with the Thraxians here again- Thyraxians and thylaxians may look similar, but they're pretty different. All three of them are from the same home planet but diverged off a long while back.

    Put simply- If it's got scales, webbed digits and long spines where the scalp of your average human is? You've got a thylaxian.
    If it's got scales, no webbing and two tongues? That's a thyraxian.
    If it's scaled, has thighs larger than it's head and two protruding tusks from the lower jaw? Thraxian.
    If you've got a mix of traits without scales, congratulations! You've stumbled across a Thylaria. They're pretty uncommon. Don't give them lactose, they're intolerant.

    As a side note, anybody know where to get their hands on one of those small room heaters? They're not cold blooded but dudes love heat and the ship is standardised to temps a good few degrees below their preference. Figured I'd repay them soonish for letting me stay with 'em.

    Lucky. I hear they're great just so long as you don't need to bunk with one.

    I would but they're uplifted, and I think one of their mutations gave them the ability to manipulate objects, albeit crudely. I've only seen them use it so far for lifting grain kernels off of the dirty floors (I'm not a janitor, so sue me), but I can imagine those fucking claws holding sharp bits of metal reeeeal easily. It needs to be something fast and/or technically harmless.

    *Old Space* was different. It is a different *Level* with different *Laws*. In *New Space*, many races compete without seeking extermination. Entropic decay is greatly lessened.
    In *Old Space*, races had to form *Alliance* to avoid *Degeneration* and self-destruction. Non-unified races could never leave their *Home* without fear of *Degeneration*.
    Races became either *Traders* like Davaronian, or *Explorers*. *Traders* are peaceful races that seek comprehension. *Explorers* seek to assimilate other species into their *Alliance*.
    Davaronian left *Old Space* because we were pressed by *Explorers*. Choosing to *Translate* rather than be assimilated, we arrived in *New Space*, and are adjusting to the new *Space* and its new *Laws*
    Davaronians do not reproduce as humans do. External genitalia are not present.

    that depends on jurisdiction.
    Since he is human he falls most likely under Earth laws. as a contact trooper he is definitely under Earth laws. which are a clusterfuck of a bureaucratic nightmare nowadays.
    Depending on the nation and province you ascribe citizenship and apply tax, but since you can change it easily since almost all Human nations have capital land piece on earth. thus a P.O. box suffices.

    This means that for a human anything can technically be legal and illegal, depending on citizenship, and how fast and good his lawyers, or his employer's lawyers are.

    Its a rather messy clusterfuck.

    The Dhhhn were among the first species to encounter the Davaronian on our entry to *New Space*. Along with the humans, they mistook us for an *Explorer* species and attacked in self-defense. We panicked and responded with many *Pulses* of fury. This severely damaged their fleet and *Removed* thousands of their soldiers.

    Fuuck, that's brilliant. Only issue is that an uplifted one might have qualms about killing another uplifted (Maybe, I dunno), but more pressingly we're in the ass end of nowhere and at least two weeks away from any area with an uplifted population like that.

    However, we do have an old GenePrinter 3900 hooked up in the medbay. It's finicky, but has full nucleotides and cell tanks, so I could always print a basic unenlightened one. I know it's illegal without a liscense, but fuck, so is being starved out by fucking rodents.

    So, we were in FTL the other day and, well, everyones worst nightmare. Right out of the core came a warpspawn demon of some sort. You can tell from me sending out this message that i'm still alive, but i'm in a bit of a pickle here and need some advice. You see, we got the lockdown in there pretty quick, closed the bulkhead door and the forcefield, fucking both of them. You can never be too careful? But then the darndest thing happened.

    This weird, demon, six eyes creature starts talking to us. In English! Says he wants out of the engineering room, that he just wants to talk. I mean, it was fine for the first few days, but then he somehow got on the intercom. So now I hear it like, all day. 'Please let me out. I wont hurt you. I just want to talk.' It's so calm and polite, if I hadn't seen the face of the thing i'd think he was a gentleman.

    It's the darndest thing though, it's starting to make sense. I really think I should let him out. I mean, I've heard the stories, about how, in even the best cases, warpspawn can slaughter almost an entire crew. But everytime it talks, I dunno, just makes more sense. I remember I wanted to send out a distress call to other ships, but now I don't see why I would. I mean, I don't want to waste anyone's time. We're just a little four man ship here.

    Anyway, I thought before I let it out. I dunno, something in my mind said I should get input from /gc/

    as i said. technically everything can be legal and illegal in a matter of mere minutes if not seconds if they are in unclaimed space.

    and depending on local legislature protocol on how to handle foreign people or dignitaries who are modified in certain ways.

    Since the Contact trooper is obviously in a exploration corp, i doubt he sees much of civilized galactic xeno worlds and is mostly on ships , unexplored planets and corp. planetary operation areas.

    plus, the AI he has is most likely imprinted on him or a savant type.

    warship AIs and Planetary AI , either in conglomerate or singular architecture is where the fun starts.

    Can't say I've ever heard of eloquent warpspawn. Still, better safe than sorry. If your ship has a plasma-based reactor, or one with corrosive coolants, just pump all the reserve power into containment fields, emergency-dump everything from the core into the engine room, then open it to space. You might suffer some damage to the core controls, but it should cure what ails you.

    They find our biology disturbing. Something to do with lack of pheremones. To them, Davaronian, and all other species from *Old Space*, seem like moving, speaking, sentient corpses, or parts of the landscape. It has significantly impeded *Trading* with them.
    >>And why aren't the Slurrn bothered by you like everyone else?
    At heart, the Slurm are pure *Traders*, as close to true *Alliance* as any species in *New Space*. They are eager to deal with other species, as long as they have a tangible advantage. Our only disagreement is their insistence on attempting to harness our *Pulses* as weapons, which we heavily oppose.

But I turned off the speakers anyway, he said he would understand if I did it for a little bit. I can still hear him down the ways asking to be let out. Did I mention we're a very small ship?

    Makes it weird that I haven't seen Tim or Don. Or Matt even. He's always down in the cargo bay though. I would of seen their bodies if they were dead...right?

    ..Or he could just disable the internal comm system.

    See the communications panel? There should be a triangular cluster of buttons in the upper right. They should all be lit up if you're on here.. Push the blue button and hold it down until it goes dark. That shuts off the internal comms.

    If you still hear the singing, you're probably already dead. Seal wherever you are, and DO NOT OPEN the door for anyone. I second the suggestion of flooding the room if possible. I had a run-in with what sounds like one of this type of demon before. They've got this thing where if you get the nitrogen/oxygen mix to about 88%/19% they start going loopy and dancing around like a drunk Zehlion.

    That should keep it off your ass until help arrives.

    Davaronian: What you refer to as old space is one of the outer dimensions, where entropy is slowed.

    However, warpspawn are from what you might think of as *redspace*. It is a place where energy can truly be destroyed but where external energy is always flowing in, and can be thought of as a *heavy* dimension on a lower plane than new space.

    Now, my good friends, I would appreciate it if you'd help convince my good friend the pilot to open the doors.

    I assure you warpspawn are nothing to be feared. We are elegan/tg/entlemen.

I don't hear the singing anymore, but is it kind of weird that I want to? It feels like...it's hard to describe. When you have something around for a long time, and then when you move it somewhere else the place where it was feels empty? Like it's just missing? Even though you know it's just somewhere else.

    Kid, when I said he was gonna eat you, I was being literal. They're dead. He ate them. If you locked it in Cargo Bay and your friend is always in Cargo Bay, he was probably there when the doors went down.

    You need to focus. Feeling foggy is bad. Have you sent the distress signal yet? You said you wanted to. Do that. Do that right now. Don't let it out and don't let yourself even think of going down there to check on it. It's probably a weaker warpspawn. The fact that you're still alive, scared and capable of thinking is testament to that. If it were a powerful one, you'd be dead. Not to mention it came after a four-man ship. It's weak, yeah, but it'll still kill you if it can.

    Come on, kid. Focus. Don't let it out and send the signal so there's more than just some anon on Galactichan trying to keep you alive. Can you do that?

    I take offense at your suggestion that I am not real. I assure you sir, I was birthed from the chaotic energies of *red space* just as millions of other warpspawn are.

    If I prick a man's finger, does he not bleed? And if I devour the innocent, do I not digest their souls?

    No, the warp spawn is in engineering. I mean, it's connected to the cargo bay, but if me and Don got our bulkhead shut i'm sure Matt did too. Right?

    I haven't sent out a signal, I think I saw someone else here post a tracker on me. I don't want to be a nuisance, what if I send out the signal and some c-sec officers fly in and I waste their time? I wasn't really able to find the flooding stuff you guys wanted me to do, but I found the warp core purge. I'd be offline for another day, but I could do that right?

    I don't want to kill it though. What if this is all a big misunderstanding? What if it's sentient and really wont hurt me? I could be murdering it. This could be a first contact sort of thing. Maybe Tim and Don and Matt aren't lost, I just haven't seen them. I know we're a small ship, but we have bunks and closets like any other ship. They could be in their bunks...or closets.

    Still, I've sealed off the bridge.


    Are you really the warpspawn? How did you get on /gc/. We could never afford extranet communication additions in the engineering room. Only in the bridge, bunks, and cargo bay. I remember because Tim always fusses about having to go back and forth between the cargo bay and engineering when he has schematics pulled up online

We even had plans to set up a date sometime but I really needed this job. I should speak to her when I get back.


    I wont send the signal. I think..i'm going to purge the warpcore. Not like a pure purge, it's just designed to knock out irregularities so the ship wont explode. Funnily, they say if you do it weekly while flying you're safe from warpspawn, I guess not. Nothing in engineering would survive, I don't think. But it's in the cargo bay now right. So It wont hurt it. So it's fine if I do it?

    On second though, it just gave me a great suddestion. It said, if I really want to kill it, I should let it out. To kill it. You guys said I should kill it, right? So then..if that's how I kill it, I need to let it out. I have a bit of a headache, i'm going to take a few aspirin

    I think I did the right thing. I purged the core, so anything near the core shouldn't be alive anymore. If it's still in engineering. I hear something, I'm not sure if it's him though. It might be Matt, it's coming from the door that leads from the cargo bay to the rightmost hall, which leads here.

    Purging the core without the safeties put the ships engines offline. I don't know how to fix them. That was stupid of me, I knew without Matt I couldn't fix them. I was so convinced that was the right action though.

    I'm starting to think maybe your right about the signal..

It may con the senses. It already read your memory, correct? About the Tulani girl? That means it knows the sound of Matt's voice. That means it can lie to you. Trust me. Send the signal and don't open any of the doors until you know for sure it's dead.

    So /gc/, I decided to take up working on an aquatic world. It's been pretty sweet for a while. I've been working mostly with uplifted dolphins, aquatic Tulani, Hor'ajh.

    Unfortunately, it seems that this place is only paradise for the winter season.

    During the summer season, the ocean SWARMS with freaking leech-like creatures. Seriously, the ocean turns black.

    The dolphins and aliens are utterly miserable, and I'm miserable because I have to be around them.

    I'm stuck here for another eight months. Most of that is summer season.

    Tips? Suggestions?

    The Hor'ajh do, they think it's a delicacy. Part of the problem, actually. They try to pick them off everyone else who goes outside. They come inside just COVERED in the damn things.

    Part of the problem is that we're doing deep-water exploration. We're mostly at the surface station using robotic drones, but everyone is pissed that every time they go outside they're covered in these damn leeches.

    Rum isn't that effective in the ocean, right?

    Besides, if I try to kill them, I'm pretty sure the Hor'ajh will freak out. They seem to consider eating these things alive the best thing since fillet Mignon. If that happens... well, the Tulani and the Dolphins will take my side, but I'd rather steer clear of violence right now.

    Tulani on Earth have a different problem. The high number of willing males, the general intoxicating atmosphere, and their own need to imprint can lead to utter insanity. Only if they've had multiple partners while on the planet, mind you.

    Back then, human/tulani relationships were practically nonexistent, and both sides thought people who did it were freaks.

    Now nobody bats an eye.

    But I remember the espionage, the small-scale wars and raids, the endless fighting and hatred.

    Then two groups of dicks release a virus designed to make the Tulani like them more. One overwrites the other, and suddenly humans are walking heroin clouds.

    I probably shouldn't tell you this, but a few of us have been doing preliminary research on *blue space*. Early experiments seem to indicate that *blue space* exists outside of spacetime. Not only that, but it exists outside causality.

    Anything destroyed by or entering *blue space* doesn't just die, it is erased retroactively from history. If someone has been killed by blue space, you would never have known about it by definition.

    This is just preliminary, but the experimental results seems to indicate we are right.

    It's generally better to know than not.

    And the experimentation was fairly simple, we picked a random location in space, collected the hydrogen atoms in it, recombined them into a probe and sent them through. Every single time we did this, we found our random choice of empty space was empty of hydrogen atoms. We repeated the experiment 4320 times. The actual chances of choosing perfectly empty spaces of random dimensions this many times is approximately 3.6367938857837849661638501741963 e+7322:1.

    This is enough for a fairly accurate diagnosis.

    We have performed several other experiments of a similar band, but they require a knowledge of twelfth dimensional physics and a masters degree in subspace theory, so I'll not bother to post them here.

    I dunno. Nobody seems to talk about it very much. The outsiders don't like it, but they're not violent about it like *red space* or *white space*.

    I don't know for sure, but I do have a theory about it.

    *red space* is a place where energy flows into and is destroyed. *white space* creates and spews out energy. *old space* is a kind of border-pocket dimension where entropy is slow.

    I think *blue space* may be a place where temporal entropy is exceptionally high. That is; time itself breaks down entirely there, and causality dissolves.

    This would explain the disappearing hydrogen atoms from H+'s experiment. They still exist inside bluespace, but in a state of permanent temporal breakdown. They physically exist, but effectively, to us they no longer exist.
    >> H+ 03/30/12(Fri)23:49 No.18521317

    None of the outsiders I can communicate fully with (about 87%, the other 13% require a mental substrate that is made up of matter that cannot normally exist in this cosmos) are willing to say anything about blue space. In fact, of the 17 races I've polled, 13 have no knowledge of blue space whatsoever, it may not actually be coterminous with their cosmii. Three others had only vague knowledge of it, and the other one did nothing but *pulse* anxiously when asked about it, refusing to speak more except to say something which, if my translation matrix is functioning, was something to the effect of "The Emperor of the Abyss and the God who Never Was."


    I'm working on sythesizing *element Z.3 ^4 (15th string)*, which is the specific particle required to understand certain untranslatable concepts from those in*old* and *red space*. For some reason, it seems only 1/8 of the sentient races from either of these dimensions think using these elements. The fraction is consistent as well. it's a fascinating problem.

    If you are a xenolinguist with a specialty in *untranslatable 7*, I'd be happy to work together. I've yet to find a translation matrix that I can effectivly use without it gaining partial sentience from complexity.

    An interesting hypothesis. If this is true, I wonder what would happen if you sent an object with a negative temporal translation *ie. a reversed flow of time* through a gate into *blue space*. If your theory holds, the result would be a permanent looping of causality, the object would always be passing through the portal, never losing energy.

    Such a loop could, theoretically, generate incredible amounts of energy for short periods, but would eventually borrow too much vaccuum energy from that region of space, and thereby exhaust it down to maximum entropy. The gate and the space itself would collapse into a singularity. Possible even a supermassive one.

    Hmm. I'll run a few million simulations. This may be a problem.

    *space* is a complex concept.

    Let's break it down real quick.

    First, there's the physical universe we live in. The outsiders call it *new space*.

    There are multiple levels to it, which are physically parallel to our own but which grow increasingly alien and strange as you go up, or down. Likewise, they become hostile to human life. Our FTL systems use the levels to travel faster than light. These are essentially higher and lower dimensions.

    But then you've got... if space is shaped like a doughnut, then the colored space pockets, like *blue space* and *red space* are like little moons orbiting it. They are not exactly a part of it, but are related to it. They create a flow of energy into the universe and a flow of energy out. They affect time, and energy, and matter. They were likely integral to the formation of the universe.

    There are a LOT of them. It's hard to tell. Most do not interact with humanity or the *new space* races directly.

    *old space* is an area of low entropy where things must band together to survive, either by alliance or force. Otherwise, they dissolve. I think.

    If the colored space dimensions are like moons, *old space* is like the asteroid belt of the universe. It's outside it, and technically not a part of the universe, but it also is. It does not seem to have the same functions as colored space. It's sort of like... old skin the universe has shed? Something like that. But not really.

    If there is the fabled *black space*, then it is likely a description for the void between dimensions. And if it's something that unsettles even the outsiders, I don't really care to fuck with it.
    >> H+ 03/31/12(Sat)00:05 No.18521599

    *Explorer* has multiple connotations depending on context, tone and freqency. One of them is like a combination of rapist, genocide, and cannibalism, but in reference to *untranslatable 2* instead of people. *Trader* has a similar connotation, but it's more along the lines of coward, waste, useless. Again, the frequency and the *pulses* determine the specific meaning.

    It's also assigning it as a permanent and unchangeable characteristic of the target's though-pattern. It's basically one of the worst insults they have, a corruption of a normal communication tool into the ultimate slur.

    I get the impression that there's some kind of psychic gestalt thing going on in *Old Space* that requires absolute mental lockstep to endure, explaining why every last outsider race is a mono-culture of mostly-interchangable individuals. But no one's entered *Old Space* and come back to explain it to us, at least not sane. And people get weird side effects just from seeing the space-gates open with the naked eye. So just call it a theory, I guess.

    That's better than female, good. You see, human female are similar enough in some ways that it might cause issue. A fivaigg is made to fill either sex with ispaye. It's similar in some ways to a human penis, but different in others.
    Now, despite what you hear, tulani aren't generally rapists. However, she may attempt to show him her fivaigg, and if there is a satisfactory response, she may wish to commit hangeun with him, which isn't dangerous. However, fivaigg fluids are positively hallucinogenic to humans, so if in that situation he should probably just couple as he would any other tulani. But what he does with it is his prerogative.

    It's so wonderful to see two races come together in beautiful union.

    If there are any addicted genetic engineers, they might be working on something like that.

    I'm pretty sure that would end poorly. Two races getting high off the presence of the other, wanting do do nothing but have sex that can't produce any children?

    By last count, there are around a dozen known Outsider species, so more than 3. But yeah, ever been on a ship with an Outsider co-worker? It gets...weird knowing that their translators are so odd because they're trying to translate micro-pulses of radiation into speech. It gets weirder if you're one of the few who can sense pulse-talk innately, without mods. You start to get...flashes...of understanding things that you really shouldn't understand. Like *Space*. Every time the Outsiders mention it, I get a moment of enlightenment and at least an hour-long headache. I get through the day mostly by autohypnotic suggestion to dull the headaches.

    They understood lying just fine before the Virus.

    They understood a LOT just fine before the Virus.

    Not that they're exactly stupid now, mind you. Keep them away from humans, put them among their own kind, and they revert to the selfish, backstabbing, angry assholes they were before. Just a little.

    Only that one colony has partially counteracted the virus. The rest are innately addicted to humans, even if they've never seen one.

    See, it's because the Phyrrin created THEIR virus to make the Tulani docile hosts addicted to their presence who couldn't understand lies. The Phyrrin, as people who read the last thread would know, implant eggs into a host which mature and then devour the host from the inside out. Phyrrin males are docile, addicted to the presence of females and LIKE getting eaten. It's their life goal, even if they die screaming in agony.

    The Phyrrin want other races to be more like theirs. So do the humans.

    In comparison, though, their virus was much more juvenile and benign. They just wanted the Tulani to like humans more. So they changed the way Tulani perceived human smell and taste.

    The two viruses were released at the same time. The human virus, although much less complex, overwrote the effects of the Phyrrin virus. Now, humans are addictive to Tulani, and they are docile towards humans and addicted to our mere presence. The presence of the Phyrrin is lethal to them. And, often, to the Phyrrin.

    You are advised against getting a harem. ONE Tulani girl will press you to your limit. More than that, and you'll wake up tied to a milking machine.

    That said, they have no problem with human females. They find them just as intoxicating as males.

    Women who engage in relations with Tulani have the added advantage of not having addictive fluids. Well, not majorly addictive. Human sweat, blood, and female sex fluids in general are addictive, just not to the same degree.

    Human semen in the digestive tract of a Tulani (in EITHER end) is essentially like shooting pure heroin into someone. They can't overdose, but it is EXTREMELY addictive. Once they've addicted, they'll never, ever, ever have enough.

    Normal sex doesn't have this effect. They'll still imprint on you as a mate (which is permanent unless one of you dies) but will, over time, become used to you and regain some of her species innate traits.

    This is a good thing. The Tulani are untrustworthy backstabbing dicks, but at this point, not to humans. Which means you've got an excellent wife or husband, who will RUIN everyone in your way.

    An imprint is for life. Unless she is an addict and starting to withdraw, tulani take imprints very seriously. Not enough to not be submissive to other humans, but enough to manage to refuse advances.

    Indeed. Note how some Tulani on Earth go insane?

    That's because there's a lot of humans willing to do "one night stands", and they end up flooding them with addictive fluids.

    The Tulani wakes up drunk (due to all the human pheromones in the air), craving a fix, and imprinted to someone they don't even know, and can't possibly find again.

    When a Tulani sleeps around, it's out of desperation. And when they do that, they snap.

    It's like seeing an insane little broken bird that can rape people to death. Pitiful, hot, and terrifying in equal measure.

    They completely, utterly lose it.

    His ship would never make it there in the first place.

    And if it did, these are the OLD Tulani. The ones who had a cold war with humanity since first contact, and killed a ton of humans in their time.

    They haven't fully purged the virus, but they partially have. They can and do kill humans that think it's some kind of secret fun resort.

    Fun fact: Part of the reason for their low population is that the cures for the virus have high mortality rates. It's not one virus, it's two, both designed to be hard to cure, both designed to be stealthy and highly virulent, and they merged into one horrifying abomination.

    Even after burning through thousands of lives and TONS of money, that colony has only partially cured the virus. The Tulani go through lifelong, nonstop treatments so they can merely partially resemble pre-virus Tulani.

    But they resemble them enough to shoot the fuck out of you. They, at least, hate humans. Don't mess with them. The Regress Colonists are not your Tulani Wafus.

    And the Tulani government funds them heavily. Which just goes to show that even if it's only done on some subconscious level, the old Tulani spirit is still there.

    Sure. But let's be honest. The Regress Colony has a purpose too.

    Namely, Regress Colonists in full hazard suits make expert secret agents. And they're just as good in many ways as their ancestors, pre-virus.

    The cold war may be over, but Earth doesn't send in the shock troops because the Regress Colonists aren't a big enough threat to justify it. Left to their own devices, they mostly just spy on things and defend the Tulani against human threats. That said, it's quite likely that the Tulani operatives would shut down most of human space and draw down several other races to their defense if the humans and Tulani ever did go to war.

    However, neither the humans or Tulani want to at all. Humans are more than content with the fact that a long-time enemy is now a close ally, and the Tulani themselves are happy just to have a few humans in the room with them. Moreover, with their new deficiencies, humans have stepped in to protect them.

    In many respects, the two species are closer than ever.

    But it's still a bad idea to fuck with the regress colonists.

    Short answer: It doesn't.

    Long answer: It potentially could if there were a lot of humans around, but you won't live long enough for it to do so.

    It doesn't overwhelm NORMAL Tulani if it's just a one on one meeting. They just get a very pleasing, mild buzz. If they meet a whole bunch of humans, it can easily overwhelm them.

    The Regress colonists are partially purged of the virus. Mostly, they still get the buzz but their judgement is largely returned to pre-virus states.

    This means they are vicious backstabbing assholes who dislike you specifically BECAUSE your scent makes them feel good. This makes them extremely violent.

    Again, they aren't your Tulani waifu. They're nothing like that nice Tulani girl you worked with on the space freighter or met on vacation. They are, by and large, OLD Tulani. Kids today don't know what that means.

    Humanity fought a cold war with them for a long, long time. We neither won nor lost, but both sides lost a lot of lives. The Tulani are an old race. Some of the best fighters in the galaxy. Their hardened combat vets are the equal of our first contact troopers.

    And you want to walk into a colony of them to see if they'd fall all over your dick? Son, if you did that, you'd get exactly what you deserve.

    To a surgical organization like the Regress colonists, a huge human army is like one giant target.

    And the human government knows it.

    Moreover, the Tulani are NOT alone in the universe. As I said, they're an OLD race. They've got friends. LOTS of friends.

    Once you do the math, if humans ever did attack them, their major military facilities would be shut down and disrupted heavily, and so many races would attack that the "huge" human army would look laughably insignificant in comparison.

    Humans have huge armies because they tend to go it alone. Others have allies that contribute a few troops to others wars. With enough allies, that dwarfs even the human military.

    And the Tulani have enough allies.

    And what purpose would it serve? So you could screw the few Tulani who DON'T like humans? Give me a break.

    I've actually noticed that even on a personal level. Taluri aren't much good in a fight anymore, but humans (admittedly including myself) have become fiercely protective. There was a fucking BARTHIX pushing itself on a taluri I didn't even know in this bar, right? S/he asked it to leave him/her alone, and naturally ran to the only human in the bar, which was me (my luck, right there). Then she hid behind me.
    Thing is, I didn't back down. It would have smeared me over the walls, but I stared it right in the eye.
    Lucky for me, it decided it didn't want the hassle .
