On the Planet Venus Dare and his crew found three different races living there.
The Brown-Golden Skinned Therons, The Blue Skinned Atlantines and the Green skinned Treens. Two of the races lived in the Northern Hemisphere of the Planet, whilst the third lived in the Southern part. The arrival of the Pink Skinned Earth Men proved to be of interest to all the different races for different reasons.
The Green Skinned Treens lived in the Northern Hemisphere of the Planet. In the same part of the planet lived The Blue Skinned Atlantines. These two races did not live in Harmonie. As the Treens over the years had done their utmost to enslave the Atlantines.
The Most technological of all the Peoples living on Venus were the Brown-Gold skinned Therons.
They were a peace loving race who had tried to help both the Treens and the Atlantines evolve with the help of Therons technology and teaching. Although the Atlantines were not savages, they believed their culture and way of life was sufficient for their needs. They looked more like the Therons than the Treens. Their Blue skin and their over developed forehead ridges were the main differences. However the Treens were interested in learning from the Therons, and learnt from their benefactors greatly. BUT where the Therons used their technology for good and peaceful purposes, the Treens started to use it for their own less than peaceful purposes..... and they would soon turn the borrowed knowledge against their benefactors.
The Peace Loving Therons appeared most like the Human Earth men when Dan Dare and his crew first landed on the planet, but later Dare found out the Blue skinned Atlantines were themselves more Alien in appearance, but still basically of Humanoid in structure.
However, The Treens looked most Alien of the three races. They appeared more Frog Like in their facial features and had a war like nature. They had little concept of Good or Bad, and on the whole they appeared to be a very unemotional race. They were very militaristic nature and believed they were the natural rulers of the planet.
|The War Like Treens|
The Atlantines informed Dan Dare that they had originally come from the planet Earth and had left to explore the Universe long before Homo sapiens had ever evolved. How they travelled from earth to Venus was not full known as much of the records of this time no longer existed. Like wise the knowledge and ability to build such equipment to allow space travel had been lost over time. In fact the Atlantines appeared to live a simple more primitive existence. This again was not known if it was by design or some major incident in the past.
The Atlantines were not war mongers, but had been fighting a long on off war with the Treens for centuries. The Treens had been the aggressors whilst the Atlantines had tried to stop their race being completely destroyed or subjugated by the more aggressive and war mongering Treens.
.The Therons had tried for many years to help civilise the Treens. Helping them build cities and stop the constant in fighting between the many different Treen Villages and tribes. The Therons did manage to unite the Treens but as soon as the Treens nation had united it turned against its benefactors. Feeling that they had failed in their mission, the Therons decided to leave the Treens to their own devices.
The Therons knew that the Treens would be incapable of attacking them in their part of the Planet as each side of Venus was separated by an area called the "Flamelands". This was an impassable wide area that ran along the equator of the planet. Only the Therons Superior technology had allowed them to build Craft able to pass through the area in safety.
With the Treens now united as a race as all fractions had now been united by the aid of the Therons help, they needed some one or thing to control and ensure that their race continued to grow in both Power and importance.
Next Time we will meet the Leader of the Treens, and the arch Nemesis of Dan Dare.
|He's Mean and Green and we will meet him next time !|
Until Then ENJOY !
