Most species were horrified to see how the Strangers exterminated the Hwzeenn, but there were a few that were openly glad to see the Hwzeenn gone, although they soon realized that, in time, the Strangers might come for them too. But still, now they had a chance to start building their own civilizations without Hwzeenn suppression.
One species in particular that was suppressed over a long period by Hwzeenn, called the Miccvan, was very glad to see the back of the Hwzeenn. The Hwzeenn did not like the Miccvans because the Miccvans were far more intelligent.
Part 204/221 of End of an Era, my science fiction novelette, set in the Strangers’ Universe.
Stories from the Strangers’ Universe are:
- End of an Era, Long ago, the Hwzeenn Empire, the oldest civilization in the Milky Way, is going into battle against an enemy known as the Strangers. They expect an easy victory, but the Hwzeenn do not know the enemy. And those who do know better have decided not to warn the Hwzeenn; a decision that will have grave consequences for the Hwzeenn Empire.
- Truths, Half-Truths and Lies, In early 1947, a long-awaited message finally comes and the meeting between Commander Johnson and aliens, the Greys, is scheduled in Roswell, New Mexico. The meeting, and the deal made there, are the first steps on a journey that takes the Commander through the great conspiracy, over a thousand years to unified Earth, to distant worlds and through the first portents of a great war.
- Dawn to Dawn, ‘Good morning! Today is Tuesday, May 27th, 2927.’ Nick, a mineworker in the mining station KCap16 in the Kuiper Belt, has another day ahead of him. He’s going to work on the asteroid field during the day and then spend his evening in the pub – like he does every day. He couldn’t know it, but his life would change forever before the next dawn.
- Just Another Scout, It is five years after the Revelation. A lone scout ship with a crew of five is on a routine mission to explore habitable planets for colonization. The routine is about to end when the ship enters a seemingly normal system and discovers an unidentified radio signal from one of the planets.
