For any of you folks who have not read my little sci-fi short story, here it is: (Let’s see if this works. FB normally removes blank lines and spaces, so no telling how it will turn out.)

LETTERS TO THE GALAXY

November 6, 32098-GY
Honorable Ecton Spyge
Adjutant to the Sub-office
Galactic General Service Office
The Galactic Confederation
Avenue 1, Tower 3
Governor City
Firth, Landover
Procyon 3
Rim 3, Sector 7,593

Dear Honorable Sir:

I have enclosed a copy of the Petition For Re-admission
to the Galactic Confederation, signed by the President of
our planet and ratified by its peoples.

It appears that Labor IV was dropped from the Roll-call
of Planets due to a clerical error.

Therefore, I anticipate and welcome your presence in
our planet’s Capitol next month at the Re-dedication and
formal Re-entry of Labor IV into the august body of the
Galactic Confederation. It is fitting that this date
coincides with the founding of our planet 7,500 years ago.

May the gods save the Galaxy and its Illustrious
President.

Respectfully,

Spentel Fleen
Minister of Culture
Labor IV
SF/em/lc/pd/rtl/jg/hep

EC: Galactic Ministry of Judiciary
Galactic Ministry of Banks
Galactic Ministry of Census
Galactic Ministry of Defense

Dear Honorable Sir:

I have again enclosed a copy of the Petition For Re-
admission to the Galactic Confederation, which was signed by
the President of our planet and ratified by its peoples over
two months ago. Our planet was dropped from the Roll-call of
Planets due to a clerical error.(!)

The celebration of our planet’s founding has passed. It
is unfortunate that you did not attend.

Further, trade with Labor IV among the various planets
of the Confederation has ceased. We are not certain as to
why this has occurred.

This oversight on your part has dramatically affected
our economy. It is an embarrassment that I must therefore
plead with you to expedite our charter with all due haste.

Please contact me immediately. All calls to your office have been dropped after days of waiting by the phone.

In extremis,

MR. Spentel Fleen
Minister of Culture
Labor IV

HONORABLE SENATOR HUEY P. LING
GALACTIC SENATE
THE GALACTIC CONFEDERATION
CONFEDERATION CITY
SECTOR 01
Dear Honorable Sir:

I have enclosed a copy of the Petition For Re-admission
to the Galactic Confederation, signed by the President of
our planet and ratified by its peoples last year.

Attempts to go through normal channels to have our
planet re-instituted as a Galactic Planet have failed. All
starships attempting to leave our planet and plead before
the Courts and the Galactic Senate have been intercepted by
the Navy. Two have been destroyed with a loss of all hands.
My personal assistant lost his life on one of those ships.

We are a peace-loving peoples. We are, every man,
woman, child and neuter, a people patriotic to the
Confederation.

I have attached copies of all correspondence and
recordings of all final black box moments of those who died
attempting to contact you.

Our people are starving. Our culture is dying. Technology is breaking down. We are at the mercy of the extrasolar winds.

Please, please, please help us.

In Fervent Prayer,

Spentel Fleen
Minister of Culture
Labor IV
