IC: “The modern world?” Dante asked curiously, “From what we saw from orbit, most of Galdor still seems to be forest and jungle. I’d be interested to see some of this modern world.” As he spoke, he speared a piece of meat that he couldn’t identify and sniffed it cautiously.

“Captain, the human tendency to wipe out nature in pursuit of modernity is not shared across all planets,” Gavain seemed to scold Knight for a moment. “Instead of pushing nature back in our quest for a better life, we utilized the tools that nature gives us. You will notice upon further inspection that in many of the forests on the continent of the Raka, the trees are massively larger than they should be given the gravity of our planet, and house entire cities within their canopies. In the land of the Arwan, you will see the savannahs and plains where our herbivorous neighbours planted their roots. You will see plants grown within the confines of nature’s boundaries, utilizing nature’s systems to maintain the health of the soil and the ecosystem whilst providing enough food for the people. We purposely avoided the idea of monocultures,” he explained.

“Humans have learned from our past,” Dante said as he cut a small piece of meat and tried it. “For example our colonies now, while they aren’t designed to the extent of your peoples relationship with nature they are built to sustain the environment. Deneva is a perfect example of that, a modern world built around and integrated with the natural landscape, not made to take it over but work alongside.” He chewed and continued his meal, “unfortunately, it did take us far too long to reach that point for Earth in many ways.”

Captain Knight, CO

“Understandable. I suppose that my world was lucky enough to have greater beings guiding our development which understood the concepts of living with nature and developing advanced technology without exploiting the resources of our home planet. We also tend to have a slower population growth than (from what I have read in history books) humans seem to have, so that helps in our ability to maintain balance with our planet. We only have one colony on an M-class planet - in the nearest solar system, there is a planet we call Rogaldor. New Galdor. It is quite sparsely populated at the moment, but slowly growing. One of the challenges is that a year on Rogaldor is nearly twice the length of a year on Galdor, so the biological clocks of our colonists are somewhat challenged.”
