Subject: Trespassing of UFP Territory, Planets and Space
with this communique, we make aware of the policies of the United Federation of Planets, regarding violations of its territory, planets, space, etc.
This said: City and Space Trespassing for the first time will be considered as a misunderstanding or as a result of not knowing about being in said space or territory of the UFP. However, a second attempt will be considered as a hostile attempt and will result in an automatic change of stances to hostile, unless prior permission is obtained, a trade agreement exists between our nations or there is some other kind of treaty, contract or agreement in place, permitting trade and trespassing.
We had this issue debated for quite some time, hence the delay in posting. Mainly, because we do understand, that such a course of action is somewhat restrictive, maybe even rude. However, latest experiences, with some trespassers and people wandering around our territory, buying large sums of resources, has made this step necessary.
In addition, we do advice, that destruction of any UFP vessel, identified by either an USS or SS Registry number or the destruction of any Federation Space Station will result in an automatic change in standings to "hostile". Attacks on Federation Citizens, Passengers and Official shall not be taken lightly as well. However, unless the person in question is an avatar, officer or Crew / Troop Member, no changes in standings will happen on the first occurrence. However, the UFP will respond to any harm done to it's citizens and its inhabitants and is - by its constitution - required and bond to provide all necessary assistance to guarantee their safety.
An additional note: Vice President Amon is absent for the time being. (ooc: real life got him busy). So please direct your diplomatic inquiries to me directly, until further notice.
President of the UFP
