Recent events have put the Clan of Teks Inter-Dimensional First Contact Protocol (IDFCP) to the test. While Captain Stemwinder of the contract dirigible Hammerhead was on a supply run to central North America, he was only half way to his destination when he was caught up in an unmapped aetheric comet dust cloud and he was transported to an alternate dimension much in the same way our friends from the Airship Passpartout happened upon our dimension. It was our meeting with Sir-Ernest Octave Suszczynski and Gintia Peasblossom, plus the few other small ships that accidentally or forcefully made their way into our dimension that prompted the Clan to develop the IDFCP. It would seem that all of these crossovers thust far are between only two dimensions. The scientists at the Tek University are still unsure why only one other dimension seems to be accessible, while current theory would make one believe there are countless dimensions alternate to our own. Oh dear, I do tend to ramble, more on that later I suppose. While in this alternate dimension Captain Stemwinder made port at a large facility called the Circle City Aerodrome, which is located in the state of Indiana, within the United States (which is still a functioning governing body in their dimension). He said that they were quite agreeable and hospitable. As per the IDFCP he made no claims nor mention of his dimensional travel nor his true origin, nor the fact of his aetheric plasma powered engines. He did make some trade with them for provisions and made contact with their city manager, an apparently tough looking but very nice woman named Kat, with whom he scheduled a meeting for the future with the Clan's first contact ambassador, Caelyn Nagle..Using our rift penetrating radio, we were able to schedule a diplomatic visit with the Aerodrome during one of their formal yearly gatherings which corresponds with their holiday called Valentines Day. The Clan of Teks sent a delegation of 5 to this event and brought the Hammerhead along for a demonstration of aether plasma engine technology as a good faith offering. We left the Aerodrome with hopes that we might return again soon, and Kat Alyst gave us an open invitation. We'll have to do something though about the pirate vessels that seem to dock at the Aerodrome with no regulation. . .The Clan's delegation included Helix Coil, Tess La Coil, Marianne Jackson, Hanah Tikva and Caelyn Nagle. Our demonstration of the Hammerhead's engine technology was well received and we fielded many questions on dirigible design.
