I'm afraid Fwiffo is no longer with the living.Somehow, Captain, we are not surprised.
What Fwiffo? Oh, he's fine, just great! Doing swell.Well then, surely you would have no trouble letting Fwiffo approach the viewscreen for a little chat
would you, Captain?
We thought not.
Our new course of action involves combat.New? New!? This is not a new thing. Your violent ways are, as they say in your language, as old as the hats.
We must go, but we shall return soon.Please don't hurry on our account.
I can tell you are upset, and so we shall leave.Suddenly we grow less upset.
Why don't you do it?Two reasons.
Firstly, we have an unreasoning fear that the Evil Ones will devour us all painfully.
Secondly, in the rare cases where we have overcome our fear, and ventured to Spathiwa's surface
the Spathi who landed were all devoured painfully.
Look, look everyone! It's the violent creature from Earth.
I wonder how many of our encrustlings it wants to devour today?
We regret our past deeds, so why dwell on the past?I am probably just an old pod-in-the-mud, Captain, but I just can't let go of the idea
that this is all part of some devious trick of yours to torture and kill my species.
An unreasonable fear?
We did not expect to see you again so soon, Hunam!
Our prognosticators had indicated that you would not return for at least 30 years
and now I fear, they will lose their tenure as a consequence.
How sad. I expect each had thousands of encrustlings to feed who will now go hungry.
Here's an idea! Leave now and do not return until the appointed time.
This premature visit shall remain our little secret, eh?
We, the High Ruling Council of Spathiwa have just passed a new law.
Your continued existence is now a crime!
With the authority of justice, we attack!
What is the Secret Cypher?
We'll give you just one more chance.
What is the Cypher?
