    [RP] Project Mercury: Reverse-Engineering a Thargoid Sensor to contact the Aliens

    Greetings CMDRs!


    Given that we currently have no in-game methods of contacting the Aliens known as Thargoids, I propose we at least make sure that FDev realizes there are CMDRs who attempt to do this on an RP level.


    Using the scientific methods available to us thanks to the efforts of Canonn Interstellar Research, we have been able to reverse-engineer a UA, and encode a message to the Thargoids in the sound patterns emitted by the Thargoid Sensors:


    Code: MLOEOH, MLOHSH, OEOHQB, OHQBSE, OHSESH, NLTHSK, NLSKUM, THSKXH, SKXHWL, SKWLUM, OLVOSO, OLSOSR, VOSOYQ, SOYQVS, SOVSSR, ONSTPS, ONPSNU, STPSSX, PSSXOW, PSOWNU, OOLVLS, OOLSIS, LVLSJY, LSJYHV, LSHVIS, MOGSHP, MOHPFN, GSHPCS, HPCSDO, HPDOFN, LOELHL, LOHLHI, ELHLBJ, HLBJEH, HLEHHI, LMHGKH, LMKHMF, HGKHHC, KHHCLD, KHLDMF, NNLMLN, NNLMNL, NNNLOM, NNOMON, NNONNO, NNNOLN

    In fact, I propose to initiate Project Mercury: an attempt to establish communications and a dialogue with the Thargoids, for the betterment of humankind (in particular to increase our chances of survival in the upcoming conflict). See also


    https://www.dropbox.com/s/th7wwvtc3q...rcury.pdf?dl=0


    for a strategy paper detailing the reasoning behind this.


    The data shown to you above should convince you (and FDev) that Canonn actually posesses the technological means to alter a Thargoid Sensor in this way. Now we just need to deliver these altered TSs to the Thargoids, and hope they respond.


    Cheers,

    Consider me in, rp is a big part of how I play ED, and if we get enough people behind this Fdev might, just might add it.

    This is a brilliant idea.

    This is a very cool idea. I hope fdev implement this or something like it. To me it doesn't make sense that no official or formal attempt has been made at establishing contact.

    You are a genius ! Have my rep and good luck.

    Let's hope FD will reply with some move

    TURN IT OFF MAKE US WHOLE

    etc. etc.

    Finally something interesting !!! Maybe this way the thargoids can be interesting.

    Maybe to create a private initiative to start dialogue and in the future even to ally to some faction of thargoids to create a new power in the Galaxy.

    Awesome

    This is a fantastic idea. I'm all for peacful contact/co-operation/trade etc. with any interested thargoids!

    A CG to create the device would be a great way to introduce it.

    In the meantime I suggest visiting as many alien bases as possible and scanning the sensors for information... We don't know what alien imprints are, but if thargoids are more animal than sentient I'd suggest the more they imprint on you, the more likely a peaceful outcome.

    Best i have ever seen! Hopefully fdevs are reading this!

    Great effort! +Rep

    What I am curious about: should humans and thargoids work out a way to communicate, what message would we want to send?

    I know this is the next step. But I think it would be good to think about a way how to find a common message for the Thargoids some time ahead.

    I'd say to them: "First: Stay away from our Escape Pods! Second: Let's talk about the Barnacles." I alway have been the more pragmatic guy

    Chances are this will be ignored as it will contradict the story FDev have planned. Game-design sucks that way

    Don't be a party pooper, besides, Fdev could let us talk to the thargoids and it doesn't have to change what they have planned, the goids can just ignore, or not even understand, our attempts to communicate.
