Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Greetings your highness. This golden katana is a present from the ruler of the Yellow Sun.
Emperor: Oh really. You may come closer. How are our plans going on that system?
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Everything goes as planned your highness. The ruler of the Yellow Sun accepted our conditions and signed the treaty. The building of the intergalactic warp gates continue at full speed.

Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Yes. She is quite happy conducting cultural relations between empires.
Emperor: Good. Lets hand over that katana.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Of course. Your highness.
A servent come and takes the golden katana from Gutenburg.
Emperor: This is a nice looking sword. Is there an importance?
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: According to the ruler of the ruler of Yellow Sun, golden katanas are wielded by the protectors of the Yellow Sun.
Emperor: The idea behind the present is kind but.. I feel something strange about it. It feels like someone with hatred touched it. However I don't feel any hatred in you Fredrich.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: You are right as always your higness. I was suspicious about the gift myself and after some tests we realized there was a tracking device mounted inside the sword.
Emperor: You removed it before bring that sword on board.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Of course your highness. Question is. Who has planted that tracking device into the katana. It could be the Emperor of the Yellow Sun or someone loyal to his rebellious son perhaps.
Emperor: Don't judge too quickly Fredrich. It could be anyone. Return to the Yellow Sun and continue your job as planned. Those gates should be completed on time.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: As you wish, your highness. Before leaving Tharcan back to Nehellenium I will visit Edelheim to inspect the preparations.
Emperor: Good. According to General Kaufmann's latest report the preparations are almost finished.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: May I ask permission to leave?
Emperor: Goodbye Fredrich. Take care. Give my regards to my granddaughter.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: As you wish your highness.
Lord Gutenburg goes backwards to the beaming location.
Lord Fredrich von Gutenburg: Officer, I'm ready to beam up.
Lord Gutenberg teleport with a neon-green transport beam.
Leyda: Your highness. Would you like some delicious fruits?
Emperor: Yes, I would like to have your fruits Leyda.
