Centered above the expansive bridge's primary command dais, the holo-real tactical display of surrounding local space finally changed significantly after countless hours of dormancy.
The Crusader's tactical officer turned toward Admiral Brash Radigen, "Admiral, massive space-time displacement detected sir, the rift momentarily modulated suffiencly to allow 4 sphereical masses to pass into our plain of existence, and then returned to a passive state."
Admiral Radigen breathed a great sigh, one of both relieved anxiety, but also one of dreaded anticipation.
"Thank you Commander. Navigation, please factor the presence of new arrivals into your mean distance equations and maintain the fleet's position 2.5 Galactic leagues *Some 1000 light years* from both the rift and the new arrivals." Radigen turned toward the fleet command nexus.
"Fleet Comm, direct all fleet commanders to reduce thier individual groups' reactor kio-dine revolutions and gravity drive engine emmissions to compensate for the presence of the new arrivals. I don't want to chance us distruping the rift or any subsequent arrivals by altering space/time too much for them to interface with our plane of existence."
Radigen stood from his seat on the command dais and moved next to his tall and bulky metallic executive officer at the dais' edge, over looking the rest of the tense, yet busy bridge.
"Any make on those objects Maix?"
"Crusader is identifying them as consentrated pure matter Admiral, with no definitive space/time signiture or special properties of any kind. She seems to feel they might most likely be woven into whatever habitats are required for the envoys."
Radigen locked eyes with the holo-real image of the perfect shinging spheres,"So they have to produce raw matter in our plain of existence BEFORE they can generate it's final space/time resonance.....maybe they arn't as superior as they would like us to think they are." Radigen smirked.
"A possibilty Admiral, but highly doubtful."
Radigen's stare remained fixed on the images of the 4 silver spheres.
"Don't remind me."
"Admiral, one more interesting fact the Crusader has decerned: These objects have not been fully intergrated into our plain of existence, they are missing intrical components of a complete base frequency."
Maix interfaced with the ship for another moment and then continued, "Crusader has been able to determine that thier space/time cohesion is being maintained through an immense power transmission from beyond the rift."
Radigen nodded,"They did say they would be able to 'unmake' ther physical ports should the need arise. Grab the frayed string, give a good tug, and the whole thing disolves."
"A most undesirable prospect Admiral."
"Again, don't remind me."
