The Orion's flight to Burmecia was long and tedious. Seygora failed to provide them a portal to Burmecia, and all Gippal had to go on was instinct and some vague directions and a brief description from the Cleyran priestess about the city, its people, and how to get there. Finally he saw what looked to be a city. As the grew closer to it some long range seekers relayed images of more rat people. "Finally," Gippal said as he rose from his captain's chair. "I wonder how friendly these people are. I have a feeling that maybe Seygora was wrong about his choice of targets."
Deep in thought Gippal walked out from his spot on the bridge over to a communication desk. Plopping himself down in the chair, he flipped on the ship's PA system in order to reach those who were onbaord and had since moved to the lounges through out the ship.
"Attention, all members of the Orion crew and members of this mission. In a few moments we will be approaching the city called Burmecia. Based on our last encounter with the people of this world, we will be going in rather as diplomats. Maybe we can figure out why they decided to move against our sides and why they are fighting this war too. I may be an idealist hoping for some sort of peaceful parlay to take place here, but I hope that they are open to such matters. However, if the safety of this ship or anyone onboard it is threatened then I am deeming this city hostile, and am here by ordering everyone to take defensive measures. Under no circumstances will we fire, or attack, first. Only fight back if they attack us. Now would Kimhari, Rikku, and Edgar please report to the bridge for a brief meeting before we enter the city's air space. The Orion will move into the city limits after our meeting. Thank you."
Gippal rose from the communcation desk and paced about the bridge for awhile. The idea of this "war of the worlds' was begining to feel like a set up. Things were begining to not add up, and hopefully after meeting with the leaders of this city what really was going on would be clearer. He paced his way back towards his chair, and plopped down in it. As he sat there he looked out the window and towards the city of Burmecia.
