Uni responds to tec trade
Uni has sent us the following Response
Uni/CyCon Tech Trade
Sent to Maniac, Drogue and Impaler[WrG]
Having discussed your various proposals for a tech trade between our factions, I can offer you the following deal: we will, as you asked, offer Ecological Engineering in our next turn, and in return, you will trade us Applied Physics and Doctrine: Initiative, and you will pledge not to trade Eco Eng to any other faction. Is this acceptable?
We may be able to get them to drop their non-proliferation requirments or include SotHB, but probly not both. I am wondering if their is anyway we could infact trade Eco Eng with you but make it seem to the University that you just researched it on your own. They will likly scream bloody murder at us if you get Eco Eng imediatly after they send it too us.
It seems we are in a Catch 22, the time needed to negotiate out the non-proliferation agreement would make the agreement moot as you will have alraedy reserched Eco Eng. I suspect the Hive will not wish to delay its research under these conditions though. If you do though then the potential for us to give Eco Eng will remain open and we can accept from UNI what would otherwise be an unviable trade.
