Fel has made some comments that it also maybe a little closer to home, he does love to surprise us!
Welcome to the Sennadar forums
Hadn't really considered "the idea" part of things with regards to Revolution, as most of us defaulted to the more militaristic usage.GotToGo wrote: ↑Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:42 pmRevolution is an internal revolt or idea, so what's ya'lls ideas? Is it revolt with KES, Coalition past or present members, within the Benga, others? I could see a couple of previous members getting frustrated and banding together to attack them, but I suspect it going to be a surprise to most fo us.
The Captain could hear the biogenic commune? Something tells me the Kimdori will be keeping an eye on these guys, and they're going to be heard about again later.“Quite interesting,” he said. “I had never conceived of a society where there are no family names.” He looked at Jason. “And I must ask. Do robots have official standing in your society?”
Jason had to chuckle. “This isn’t exactly a robot, Captain,” he replied. “It is, but there’s a living being operating it in a way that’s difficult to explain. I can see and hear through the machine, and can control its movements from where I am.”
“No doubt through the telepathic interface I’m sensing,” he said, looking carefully at the bionoid. “I can hear it, but I can’t understand what it says.”
“Precisely so, Captain,” Jason told him.

The not talking with folks part makes sense, it is the exploration when they aren't going to talk that confuses me. What exactly are they hoping (or fearing) to find?
The Kimdori on the other hand makes perfect sense, they might not be talking either but that doesn't mean they are going to ignore the civilizations they do find. Covert infiltration is a very different thing from deliberate avoidance. Assuming of course that there are even enough Kimdori available to do the job, given Kimdori breeding restrictions - needing clan leader approval to even seek a suitor - I get the sense that there aren't that many of them (or do the restrictions only apply to certain elite clans while most Kimdori just go about living).
Or maybe it's a matter of partnership, the KES finds civilizations and the Kimdori then go study them. Although I suspect any civilization that discovered hidden Kimdori would be less than thrilled after being told their territory would be avoided. Sounds like a way to turn paranoia up to 11.
There is also the possibility of the KES discovering the mystery race that possibly seeded the galaxies.
Perhaps that implied mystery race could possibly not like the idea of what Jason and the Karinne’s are doing. Sorta seeing it as children playing with fire, and in a misguided attempt to correct their wayward children. Thus the revolution.GotToGo wrote: ↑Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:42 pmRevolution is an internal revolt or idea, so what's ya'lls ideas?

Just starting my count down to the next chapter. And most of all Thanks Fel!
