ANNOUNCEMENT: Lord Delos Revisited
I just put up a new Page on Sunny’s Journal, adding a new version of a short story I started writing in 2018. I have “found” it, again, revised it, and have added to this blog. Hope you enjoy my efforts.
BTW, it is a science fiction story about the Katayy of Kashta, a world located in the Ashkera solar system… the great blue-white star we call Sirius A. In this updated tale, I weave a bit of galactic history and hopefully pop a few disinformation bubbles in the process.
Comments are open on the page for now.
After putting up the new page on Lord Delos, I started looking at the text and noticed quite a few errors that I had not picked up prior. Let me tell you… editing is an art form and takes a great deal of patience and perseverance… qualities I sometimes don’t use!
Still, while in my third read-thru, I began to understand the real history of the conflict in the Ashkera system. It wasn’t the Katayy who were involved in the conflict with the Nebu… at least not later in the Orion Wars… it was the white-blonde, green-eyed T-Ashkeri from Morga. This hybrid Grey-Taali-Lyran race were/are highly technologically advanced. Unfortunately, their planet was successfully infiltrated by the Nebu and taken over. The aggressive Nebu also succeeded in driving out the amphibious Nommo from their planet Nyan in the Thula system. The Nommo migrated to another planet in the Emerya system, the third and smallest star in the Ashkera system.
There was a breakaway splinter group from the Ashtar Collective. Today, we know them as the Ashtar Galactic Command. They have no planet, but live on their motherships. The Ashtar Galactic Command have one of their headquarters in our solar system, a cloud city in the atmosphere of Jupiter. The soldiers of this command are mercenaries, and work cooperatively with several benevolent councils, including the Orion High Council, the Council of Five, the Intergalactic Confederation, the Zenae (Andromedan) Council, etc. These warriors are the same hybrid race, the T-Ashkeri of Morga, who have no home world now due to the depredations of the Nebu in the Ashkera system, primarily the planets orbiting Thula.
Another thing, there is no such thing as a Sirian star nation. Each of the twelve planets that orbit the three suns of the Ashkera system contain a myriad of cultures and species. The Katayy are the dominant race on Kashta orbiting Ashkera (Sirius A); the Ashkeri on Morga orbiting Thula (Sirius B); the Nommo on Xylantia in orbit around Emerya. The Nommo were indigenous to Nyan, a planet in the Thula system but were chased out by the aggressive Greys of the Orion Empire. The peaceful Katayy did not join the Ashtar Collective. After the time of our story, the Ashtar Collective became aligned with the Nebu and later still, with the Ciakahrr and other regressive races. The Katayy were protected by the Galactic Federation, while their neighbors on Morga aligned with the regressive Orion Empire.
As for the Laan, I don’t believe they had anything to do with the conflict in either place, Ashkera (Sirius) or Ashaara (Taygeta). Like their cousins, the Taali, Ahel and Noor, the Laan spread far and wide throughout Nataru (the Milky Way Galaxy). They created several interesting hybrids utilizing their own genetics and that of other species. You can read more about those races by reading Elena Danaan’s book, “A Gift From the Stars: The Book of Alien Races” — highly recommended!
As for there being an intelligent bipedal Feline race… yes, I’ve heard of a few. The imagination can be strained when you consider that many of the different forms of living creatures we share our planet Terra with may have a corresponding bipedal “human” variant, including upright, talking Lions. How cool! Anyway, I created such a beastie… in my stories. It’s called artistic license!
