The ArKay Files
Over a period of three years, a Korendian gentleman who chooses to be called ArKay provided a series of 21 informative and detailed communications on subjects ranging from United Worlds Alliance government to Korendian history to many problems facing our little blue marble in space. While some of the information in them is no longer applicable in today's world, they serve as an introduction to the Korendians and the United Worlds Alliance. The majority of the content is as relevant in the 21st century as it was when it was received, and in some cases even more so. Two other files are included that were received much later.
The messages included in Series One were received in October and November of 1988. They were released on "floppies" (remember those?), which explains the reference to erasing the diskette in message G.
The messages in Series Two were received in May through July of 1989. They continue the introduction to Korendor and its people, and deal further with matters on our own world.
Series Three began with a message relayed in September of 1989, and then was suspended until January of 1991. After the second message, the Alliance's growing awareness of the extent of the Omegan operations here resulted in the series being terminated.
The final official message relayed by ArKay was sent on June 6, 2004. It was a test to determine whether it would be appropriate to resume this form of communication. After due consideration, it was decided that no further direct public communication of this type would be carried out. This is therefore the last message from ArKay that will be released unless a change of plans is approved at the Elder Master level.
That notwithstanding, Brother ArKay will occasionally contribute unofficial information, and brief responses to questions posed on the site. Ergo, he is not going "cold turkey".
