Ardishapur Command Station, Arnar System, Tarim Sector
Taklan sipped on the glass of freshly provided imassi, while staring in the massive observation window that showed both the vast space, the fiery nebula, and the great fleets parked outside of the command base. The imassi itself was a milk said to be obtained from a breed of mammal called Belug originally found in the Planet Vey, and was carried along by the Vaygr to various worlds and stations through centuries of migration. The milk was more than just a drink and a liquor; it was often used in Vaygr religious and social rites, a living, drinking connection to their homeworld. The milk itself had a creamy vanilla taste, but it had a touch of bitterness from it due to the alcohol arising from fermentation. Done right, the alcohol could warm the skin of even the most hardened space living Vaygr. The imassi here was provided by a small, carefully well taken care stock of Belug cows living within a special farm inside the base, the personal livestock of Mogaden himself. This Il-Khar chooses well, Taklan thought.
