result (Translated from Pirates-of-the-Carribean to Cruncher's Language) :
One of your Pirates issued a warning shot across our bow without coordination with his crew and certainly
without reflecting on our venerable vessel's formidable performance.
As it was, the challenge stood issued, it was received, well noted and respectfully congratulated upon (recognized as a very bold move, coming from a ship we had very little intelligence about and seemingly sailing no significant breeze)
Given the unknown nature of the hailing and challenging vessel, the Nordlichter crew followed standard procedure, engaged main jet thrusters and set course & speed deemed appropriate for such constellation.
Unexpectedly, we lost you out of sight rather quick
and are thus questioning, as to when you are deciding to fulfill your own challenge that you had forcasted in such promising ways.
In short :
THou gave us the promisse we northern seamen trusted upon, yet thou broke it hence we'd seen no challenge served to date. Life up to thou promisses and sail hard...or stay ashore and disappear beyond thay horizon foreva!
Nordlichter come and go, whereever they want, whenever they want... Seemingly random, but always guided by the light. Agreeable, though, they are
best visible during darkness. But then, that's our Motto
SETI at this time makes only for a tiny fraction of the delivered computing power of this Team, it has been long superseeded by many other Projects.
