HomeWorld For The L'ucli
As we journey coreward, we pass a G3 yellow dwarf star with a complex
planetary system that includes a world, our MetaMind computer says will
be suitable for the L'ucli genetic rehabilitation, after their world was
destroyed by a nearby nova. This new world has two satellites (the L'ucli's
homeworld had one), but both moons are stable, and will provide for a wide
variety of surface condition variation.
As we approach the planet, we will plant a monitoring station (called a
Watcher) on the inner-most moon to watch the progress of the L'ucli, and
notify us when they achieve space flight. The Watcher will self-destruct
by immolating itself in the system's star before the L'ucli can discover
it. We wish to keep the highly advanced technology inherent in The Watcher
away from those whom it might harm.
As we prepare to descend to the planets surface, we have prepared a Teacher.
The Teacher is a nanite construct, built to identical physical measurements
of the L'ucli. They will never know it was not a living, breathing being.
The Teacher will help instruct the L'ucli for approximately 150 years, and
then it will depart their presence and self-destruct. It would be sociologically
damaging to leave the Teacher as an object of worship and veneration. The
Teacher will instruct the L'ucli in their original language and arts, as
well as survival skills they may need for this new world. It will also instill
a base-128 proto-morality that the L'ucli can use to create their own laws
and values. We will not force our values on another race.
Once we are sure that the Watcher and the Teacher are functioning properly,
we will leave the L'ucli to develop along their own path. The ocean's and
skies have been seeded with their fauna and flora, and the Biosphere has
shown itself to be hospitabale to their presence. We leave them in a situation
very close to the home they have so recently lost.
