In Part 58, Caslaikove told about the need for technological improvements. Better high speed space travel was needed and better, more controllable weaponry. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

04/15/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - New Technology

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Previously. I mentioned the ongoing efforts to improve rapid space travel and laser weaponry. Current laser weapons in both hand-held and the larger cannon style weapons, utilized a constant flow of laser energy which for the most part annihilated anything it hit. Military leaders wanted to be able to control the level, or as the researchers said it, ‘pulsate’ the firepower.

The other critical area that needed improvement was rapid space travel. The current technology of Split Magnetic Field Travel or SMFT, was definitely the fastest way to travel, but not very accurate.  You could split a field but come out on the other end of the split thousands of miles from your intended target. Since research had proven so far that nothing could exceed the speed of SMFT, then a faster way to travel to final destination had to be developed. Even though Magnetic Field Realignment travel or conventional speed travel as it was commonly known as, was really fast, it just wasn’t fast enough to cover for the inadequacies of SMFT. But a breakthrough was about to happen when the question was finally asked, “How can we travel as fast as light?”

In Part 57, Caslaikove told about Killot becoming the new leader of Terlokya after the death of Kesmar. Following in Kesmar’s shoes forced Killot to prove himself worthy of being the new leader by leading a ground force of Terlokyans against an invading force of Hesters.

04/08/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Moving Forward

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last time I told of the passing of Kesmar and the ascension of Killot to the leadership of Terlokya. He became Terlokya’s first Supreme Commander. Following in the footsteps of Kesmar, Killot felt great pressure to prove himself worthy. Killot had been The General of the Ground Force on the planet Kekter before becoming a member of the Supreme Council. During this time, Terlokya had been fighting to retain control of Kekter for years against a species called the Hesters. They were somewhat humanoid, shorter, with a leathery covering and very adverse to moisture, hence always quite dirty. But they were highly intelligent, almost as advanced as Terlokyans, and very good fighters.

The Hesters had started another campaign to wrest control of Kekter away from the Terlokyans. Kekter was a dry, dusty planet with little water but loaded with mineral deposits. It was in the same solar system as Cezzeck, the first planet colonized by Terlokya that was outside their own solar system. Killot decided to lead the Terlokyan ground forces against the invading Hesters. Already a war hero, Killot proved himself again by routing the invaders. He led a company of Terlokyan Warriors around the flank of the enemy and destroyed their main force. He returned to the capital, Kukno, a hero again.

In Part 56, Caslaikove told about Kesmar’s insistence that research and development for Terlokyan weapons technology and high speed space travel was imperative if Terlokya was to be ready the next time the Veloptors came.

04/01/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - The death of Kesmar

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told of the need for technological improvements in space travel and weapons. Kesmar championed this. The entire Terlokyan population looked to him as their leader so they knew that this had to be done … especially after being discovered by a new enemy, the Veloptors. But Kesmar was quite old by now. He had lived over half his life when he became Terlokya’s first unified leader and was given the rank or title of ‘Priimus’, which meant ‘The First’. But now, he was at the end of his life. As he was taking his last breaths, the Planetary Governing Council knew it had to have the next leader ready. This council had a plan for the future. Its members were ingrained with the beliefs of Kesmar. Since they knew they were entering the post Kesmar era, changes had to be made. They planned to change the name of the council to the Supreme Council. Then they elected one of its members, Killot, to be Terlokya’s next leader. But the rank/title of Priimus could not be bestowed upon him. It was decided that Killot would be the Supreme Commander.

Kesmar was made aware of all of the upcoming changes and agreed with them. Just a few days later, he passed away peacefully with family and friends by his side. All of Terlokya mourned. Adored by all, he had become known as the Father of Terlokya after uniting the entire planet following the Great War. But now he was gone and the new Supreme Commander, Killot, had big shoes to fill. Coming from a military background with a strong scientific education, Killot had been very involved with research on high speed space travel. So after leading Terlokya through the mourning of Kesmar, Killot was going to have to do something dramatic to win the confidence of the citizens.

In Part 55, Caslaikove told about the discovery that Veloptors use humans in their food production system. They didn’t use them as workers, but as the food. The captured Veloptor also told of other planets that were inhabited by humans – planets they conquered.  There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

03/25/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Defense

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told about the horrible discovery that this new enemy of humans use our kind as food. They had discovered other planets of humans, but the captured Veloptor didn’t have the space locations. But his cohorts had escaped with our high speed space travel technology, or Split Magnetic Field Travel, as we call it. The Veloptors had accidently stumbled upon us by exploring a rif, the spawned split in a magnetic field that is caused when a field is split. It was a technology defect. Kesmar, the leader of Terlokya, was nearing his final days. But since his words rang true, that of the impending arrival of a fierce enemy, those that had harbored an opposing view of a military buildup were now clamoring for an even greater spending on weapons technology and improvements to high speed space travel.

Researchers worked at what they already knew while more needs were defined. The military wanted to go beyond merely having laser weaponry that simply fired a stream of red energy that obliterated whatever it came in contact with. The need to capture, disable, disarm, or kill all became priorities for a new laser weapon system that could be carried by the common soldier or adapted (or replace) the laser cannon system currently in use by the military. Pinpoint accuracy was the goal for high speed space travel improvement. The whole of Terlokya was now behind this defensive buildup. But there would be a setback in this progressive effort. A void was about to engulf the spirit of Terlokya.

In Part 54, Caslaikove told about the capture of a Veloptor pilot from a ship their fleet left behind. Terks discovered the reptile could write in Terlokyan. What it wrote was shocking. It communicated that it viewed humans as just food. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

03/18/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Just Food

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told about how our soldiers captured a Veloptorian pilot that could write Terlokyan. The reptile was kept in a very secure facility on the moon Donar.  It told us that its name was Balzzee. When the Terk medical staff asked Balzzee what its normal diet consisted of, the reptile replied, ‘human flesh.’ It further informed us that Veloptors had discovered two other planets with humans on them and had captured the planets, then harvested the populations for food. And now they raise humans on their planet and their colonies for food consumption.

Needless to say, this was very upsetting to us. The news that other planets were out there and were inhabited by humans, was an exciting discovery. However, coupled with the new found knowledge that these planets had been captured and were used as human food farms, led to the effort to extract the locations of these planets from the captured Veloptor. At that, came a new discovery – Veloptors can’t be physically tortured. They were not only tough, but could shut down their pain sensors. So all the efforts to make Balzzee give information about the human planets failed. There was only one thing to do now that the Veloptors had our high speed space travel technology. We had to prepare for their return.

In Part 53, Caslaikove told about the discovery of a disabled alien fighter after the aliens stumbled upon a small Terlokyan fleet. Inside the alien fighter, Kesmar (the founder of a united Terlokya) discovered a reptile known as a Velociraptor on Earth and a Veloptor on Terlokya. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

03/04/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Veloptors

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told about an alien being discovered aboard one of their disabled fighters after the large alien fleet came through a rif next to a small Terlokyan fleet and destroyed them. They departed back through the rif. The disabled alien ship that they left behind was towed into orbit around the planet Cezzeck. Terlokyan military, specialists, scientists, along with Kesmar (the founder of a united Terlokya) came to Cezzeck to see what they were dealing with. What they discovered upon opening the alien ship, was the pilot. It was a reptile known as a Velociraptor on Earth and a Veloptor on Terlokya. And it was alive but badly injured. But even in its injured state, the reptile lashed out at them trying to injure, kill, or maim the Terks who were actually trying to keep it alive. They had to tranquilize it so they could get it out of the ship. After doing what they could for the reptile, they locked it up in a large secure space until they could figure out how to communicate with it once it healed.

Veloptors had advanced from their dinosaur days as Earthlings know them. Allowed to evolve without their species being destroyed by a meteor, they became the intelligent, dominant species of the planet Velox. Their front legs had grown longer and were useful as arms. The tail remained strong but was smaller and used as a weapon. It became a highly intelligent being. When the captured reptile began to talk, language experts tried using computer models and other technology to decipher what it was saying. But to their surprise, the reptile could write in Terlokyan. What the reptile communicated to them though, was absolutely horrifying.

In Part 52, Caslaikove told about the glitch in MFR travel that allowed for aliens to stumble upon the colonies. When they did, it was a massacre. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

02/25/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Colonial Wars

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I discussed the error in the Split Magnetic Field Travel and how aliens came through the rif and sat face to face with Terlokyans. We were friendly, they were not. They massacred us and captured two of our fighters. Since the planet Cezzeck was our colony and this battle occurred right outside the planet’s orbit, observers in the space stations that were orbiting the planet knew of the massacre. The rif was still open and the aliens left through it before it closed, presumably going back to where they came from.  But they took with them the two captured Cruiser Fighters that were equipped with the Split Magnetic Field Travel technology. But the aliens left behind one of their disabled fighters.

Needless to say, we were sure that whoever they were, they would replicate our technology and be back. The colony itself on Cezzeck was very small. It was more of a military-industrial complex to where some of the military and civilian residents brought their families due to extended deployments. Strategically it was of no importance. But as for mineral wealth, it had vast quantities of Costine which is used in manufacturing flexible metals. So it was a huge mining operation. Plus another planet in that solar system, Kekter, also had Costine. It wasn’t more than a year before the aliens returned. And this time they came in force. Kesmar, quite old by now, was still always vigilant. He had built up the defenses of both planets in preparation for the invasion he knew would come. And he knew what type of invaders they would be based upon what was discovered in the disabled alien fighter.

In Part 51, Caslaikove told about a glitch in Split Magnetic Field Travel that could lead to unknown entities entering the newly formed rif. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

02/18/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - A New Enemy

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told about Split Magnetic Field Travel, and the glitch which was another split developing elsewhere in the magnetic field, called a rif. I mentioned the rif entrance and exit could be far away from the split entrance and exit, the entrances could be far apart with the exits close together, or vice-versa. The problem occurs when the rif entrances and exits are far apart from each other. If you don’t have an eye on the rif, how do you know who might be entering it?

The problems of high speed Split Magnetic Field Travel became very apparent when a small fleet of Terlokyan ships split a magnetic field near the planet Kekter in the Hastin solar system. Kekter was an uninhabited planet but was valuable due to vast quantities of Costine which is used in manufacturing flexible metals. The fleet was going to make a short hop to the planet Cezzeck in the same system. Cezzeck had been colonized by Terlokya, along with the planet Seth in Hastin. These planets were practically uninhabitable due to the solar system orbiting a dying black sun. It was always cold there but the colonies thrived. But on that particular day, there weren’t any unexpected occurrences as the fleet entered the split entrance and then exited near Cezzeck. Upon exiting, they discovered a large armada of foreign, or alien space craft. These other ships had entered the rif entrance, which was far away from the split entrance, but the rif exit was right next to the split exit.  These alien ships exited right before the Terlokyan fleet had exited. The Terlokyans hailed the much larger alien fleet and bid them welcome in the name of peace. The alien ships responded with a laser attack that wiped out most of the Terlokyans. The rest were captured.

In Part 50, Caslaikove told about told about high speed space travel by Split Magnetic Field Travel, but there was a glitch. Whenever a field was split, another split developed elsewhere in the field … called a rif. There’s more from Caslaikove below, or you can go straight to saviorproject.blogspot.com/ .

02/11/14, Earth Time: 06:00 AM, EST, Tuesday – The Story of Terlokya - Glitch

Greetings and salutations. Caslaikove here. Last week I told about high speed space travel by Split Magnetic Field Travel, but there was a glitch. Whenever a field was split, another split developed elsewhere in the field … called a rif. It could be close by or at the opposite side of the field. The same thing occurs on the exit … the exits could be close to each other or far apart. To make this even more complicated, no two magnetic fields are alike in size of shape. It might appear that this really shouldn’t be a problem. A ship enters the entrance of the split and exits the split on the ‘projected’ path. However, a ship could enter rif and exit the rif … where ever the entrance and exit might be.

Where the glitch became problematic, was when a ship entered the rif and exited the rif. Let me restate that the rif entrance and exit could be far away from the split entrance and exit. But that also means the entrances could be far apart but the exits could be close together. That doesn’t appear to be a problem. That is, as long as you know who is entering the rif.
