The Leviathan's Arms stretch down from inside him, their birdlike talons clack on a small computer screen mounted on the floor directly below him. A starchart appears on a screen near the translation console in the center of the room. ((Ignore the unknown nations.....))
"As you can see, the Tradelanes of the Leviathan already connect the Lotal Republic to the Barachan Freehold, while redundancies could be put in place, it would be a far better strategic move for the Freehold to initiate trade with these as of yet unknown Asevians as a method of creating a secondary route to the Lotal.
We are, however, very happy to hear that you value Leviathan Friendship; and rest assured that this value of our mutual friendship is shared among our people as well. The Freehold were the first, and happily friendly alien contact made by the Leviathan. We wish to continue this friendship, and through Economic Cooperation this is possible."
