Meeting The Adamoi

Captain Picard, and our Enterprise senior staff, visited the Adamoi on Techelen earlier today. They were treated to a reception in the governing city’s capital district, and, according to reports, discussed a variety of topics while dining on exotic meats, cheeses, and native fruit. Plans for future diplomatic visits were developed, but have not yet been released.

This image shows a view of the capital district, taken from the shuttle as it descended to a make-shift landing area. From the photo, we can see that the Adamoi value grand architecture and beautiful public plazas. Statues and historical monuments are also abundant.

While I am not privy to the topics discussed in the meeting, the away team report does tell us more about the Adamoi. As it turns out, in addition to being long-lived, with lifespans of nearly 800 years, the Adamoi are also very tall. The average Adamoi male is 9-10 feet in height, with their females being only slightly smaller. They are in extraordinary physical health, with well-toned bodies, and strength far superior to any of our crew. They also wear light clothing, consisting of various airy fabrics fastened loosely around their bodies. Commander Riker likened their fashion to being similar to that of the Ancient Greeks on Earth.

The Adamoi are friendly, considerate, and extremely intelligent.

We also learned a little more about their homeworld. Techelen is about the same size as Earth, and is surrounded by a clear canopy of water above its atmosphere. This creates a unique greenhouse effect that keeps the entire planet in a comfortable, tropical climate. The atmospheric pressure is stronger than a standard class-M world, and there is about 50% more oxygen in the atmosphere than there is on Earth. There are no storms, it has never rained on Techelen, and a mist frequently rises up from the ground to keep the planet well-watered.

The Adamoi have a strong fascination with nature, and have established vast areas of the planet as protected forest. In fact, Techelen even features a new biome not seen on class-M worlds. Almost all of their coastline consists of floating forests full of a wide variety of trees and plants, under which, great sea creatures swim.

Apparently, trees, plants, and animal life are as much giants as the Adamoi themselves.

Even more interesting is the fact that there is no coal, oil or natural gas on this planet. The Adamoi have created a highly-advanced industrial civilization, completely without any of these natural resources. They honor their natural habitats, they maintain almost pollution-free industrial zones, and yet, they have an advanced technology level slightly above our own.

These are, without a doubt, a fascinating people, and their homeworld is like nothing we have ever seen. I remain optimistic that I will be able to learn more about these Adamoi – perhaps visiting them in person – before our mission comes to an end. It would be a shame to pass up an experience as different and unique as this!
