Jurgætus LXII, Prime Imperator of Jurgætium, has grown wise to the attempts of Zarg VI, Grand Praetor of Xarnaq IV, to curry favour with a certain civilisation on a backwater planet in order to facilitate trade relations between the Xarnaq Praetorium and the world known as “Earth.”
The Praetorium has recognised psionic traits in early development in certain factions on this planet that, in time, would be mutually compatible with both the commercial goals and cultural relations of Xarnaq IV.
Unfortunately, as Jurgætium is technologically close to parity with Xarnaq IV, their psychological and psionic aptitudes lag several millennia behind. Prime Imperator Jurgætus is currently attempting inroads at normalising relations with Earth’s power brokers by sending autographed plaques with the imperator’s likeness.
The Grand Synod of Jurgætium is both confident and optimistic that these overtures will be well received.

There’s a place in The Classic City you should know
After school the whole gang knows just where to go
Moving from the heart, it’s all more than just for show
Come on down and move, you girls just grab your beau
Move it like you like it — see the ponytails bob
Move it like you like it — turn up the volume knob
Move it like you like it — pomade’s got it under control
You like it like you rock and you like to roll
C’mon baby, move it like you like it (3X)
You move it like you like it — and I like it, yeah I like it

Desolation and isolation are the norm in this benthic realm — what scant light there is comes from the weak bioluminescence of its quiet denizens. The ambient soundscape is a constant slow slosh punctuated by the occasional bubbling of hydrothermal vents.
The subaquatic fauna have even less self-awareness than the Solitary Uintathere whilst dwelling in a much more inhospitable habitat. It will be another hundred million years before they reach even his primitive scope of the world surrounding them.
If you thought the Solitary Uintathere was a lonely beast, torpidly gnawing on weeds in his swamp-home, think of the antecedent arthropods and phytoplankton in the dark depths that have even less perception. Talk about lonely.
Viewer Discretion: Rather than scientifically exploring ancient lifeforms, this motion picture anthropomorphises prehistoric creatures in order to be more accessible to today’s viewing audience.
