A suspicion gnawed at Aezzairrfhowrrhudrrl that the Sith were behind the emergence of the kiliks; they'd not sent any leaders to the meeting on Ruusan, and the introduction of a new galactic threat was practically forcing the FWA to consider peace without any further negotiations; negotiations that the Wookiee had hoped might open the door for conquered FWA planets to choose their government.

However, it was a sacrifice that had to be made given the circumstances. "The FWA is open to a cease-fire" he said, nodding in thanks to Alex (@Valen Pelora).

The hardly-veiled threat from the Sith representative (@The Good Doctor) did little to assuage Senator's cautious acceptance that the FWA and the Sith might have to work together against the kiliks, which thus far only had appeared outside of Sith space.

"Accidents?" Aezzairrfhowrrhudrrl asked, a clarification that was hardly necessary. The Sith's admission that Jedi/FWA working with Sith might be subject to accidents did not sit well with the Wookiee. "Since Representative Alkaios does not appear convinced that Sith operatives can work safely in conjunction with other factions, then I suggest that we eliminate that risk by sending in scout droids." (@The Good Doctor) His comments could hardly draw criticism as the Sith had made no attempts to hide their villainy to the galaxy at large, and the Governor of New Alderaan had just signaled that the Sith might try to backstab FWA/Jedi operatives; hardly the sign of a government to be trusted. "Droids also have a major advantage in that, as far as we know, they cannot be Joined; and they may even be able to capture a kilik for us to study." It was the lowest-risk option, as far as he was concerned.

Sandé had kept herself to herself since the commencement of the extraordinary meeting, preferring to watch the great men and women of state get their initial posturing out of the way before she proffered her own views. Since the withdrawal of her brother from public life, for reasons he had yet to share with her, Sandé had taken up the mantle as representative for her world, one of the multitudinous facets of her position as its Queen. Stoically, she had listened as the various members of the galaxies political elite had commented on the shared calamity which now struck them all.

The Killik.

Naboo was not a world that, to her knowledge, had ever been visited by these exotic alien creatures. Indeed, her own understanding of the structure of her home planet was that vast underwater caverns, all of which teem with aquatic life, would make it next to impossible for an insectivorous race to exist there. However, the more she listened to the concerning analysis of the gathered representatives, the more worried she grew that maybe, just maybe, another scan of the subterranean levels might be a good idea.

"Distinguished representatives, it is pleasing to hear such a broad cross-section of the galaxy coming together to face this common foe. I extend my thanks to the Jedi, and the Sith, for being willing to enter into these discussions with a shared hope of working something out, which could save the lives of millions across our galaxy. Senator Aezzairrfhowrrhudrrl," she said the Wookies name with almost perfect pronunciation, the by-product of a combination of excellent schooling, and far too much free time as a young girl " - let us give Representative Alkaios credit for the foresight to place measures in place to ensure better cooperation and stronger outcomes in our shared endeavors." she added diplomatically, doing her best to move the discussion to a more optimistic area, rather than spark yet another argument between the Sith and the Alliance.

"When any two peoples have been at war, the wounds of conflict exist for long after a ceasefire is called. It is only wise to do what we can to prevent such grievances from arising at this time. If the Sith and the Jedi wish to commit to sending force users to the location of Killik activities, then I believe we should do what we can to facilitate such a measure - droids can do much, but the force can do much more, and those proficient in its use will aid our investigations enormously." the Queen inclined her head to the Sith and Jedi speakers, indicating that Naboo supported their renewed efforts to support the work of the assembly, together.

"Indeed, Naboo is also eager to do what we can to support the work of our intergalactic companions. Whilst we cannot do as much as pan-galactic governments can, we shall of course support the work of the Consortium, of which we are proud to be a part. On top of this, we can provide the use of the NSC Emilia, a corvette in the Nabooian Navy. It is not much, but it is a capable vessel, which can serve as a fast-moving and effective hub of operations for this research, if the assembly wishes for it."

The meeting was drawing to a close. There was truly little left to discuss. “I will instruct the Order to abide by the cease-fire.” She placed her hands on the table one last time. “We will share all that we learn about the Killik threat, and my hope is all of you will do the same.” Alex slowly pushed herself from the table to stand. “We will need time to prepare for any action against the Hive world. I suggest we all speak internally before presenting plans of action. If we can break the Hive mind, we may win the war.” She needed to further investigate the working of the Killik. Alex was still convinced a joining of powerful Force users could shatter the Killik…but that would be difficult to gather.

“We are all aware of the fighting on Thyferra and Corellia. I must tend to that and prepare to send what resources we can when the fighting stops.” She nodded to each member present. “Thank you…I do mean that…truly. This was not easy for any of us and that should not be lost.” With that the Grandmaster made her way back to the Aurora. The galaxy was on uneven footing. The Killik were a united threat unlike anything any of them had faced. The meeting gave her some small hope they could defeat that threat.

OOC: Alex Exit.

There had been significant discussion since the last time that she had spoken up, the senator was more than happy to listen as each side added their contribution or statement of intent towards their galactic efforts against the Killik threat. There was still some hope that they would be able to set aside their differences and work together toward the common goal.

"I shall make available the goblet for all parties that wish to take samples, I do agree that the more eyes we have on this project the better. As for the FWA-Sith question, I concur with Senator Aezzairrfhowrrhudrrl (@SlagathorTheUnknown) that a formal ceasefire is both warranted and wanted in this situation and perhaps in time, more negotiations can be brought forth to end the war between our peoples."

Victoria held steadfast in her belief that the senseless violence did nothing good for the FWA, its worlds lost were regretful, but they also retained a responsibility to the billions still within their care. If the meeting didn't seem to pick up steam and continue, she would consider their business done for the day.

Now that was interesting.

Julia's eyes practically lit up with delight when the Alliance Senator, Victoria, offered to share a sample of the Killiks 'substance'. There was a great deal the Blackwell Corporation and Systech could do with that particular substance, not just proofing against the Killik. Already she was postulating about the various additional uses such a potent substance could have as she activated her microphone to express her thanks.

"That is a most generous offer, Senator. I can assure you, we shall make full use of it. I am confident of compelling results to aid our collective efforts against this rising threat." she replied, signalling her apparent interest in securing a sample for those whom she represented.

Jasnah had been sitting quietly in the back, listening in on the conversation, not really having any authority to speak up in the proceedings. She wasn't a governor or held a position on any committee that allowed her to speak, she was just another cog in the Imperial bureaucracy, here to observe, record, and report.

As the meeting wound to a close, she stopped typing on the datapad placed on her lap, having recorded everything she needed to, and sent a copy to the Governor from New Alderaan (@The Good Doctor) for review, he was the ranking officer there and she wasn't going to risk a pointless reprimand for ignoring the chain of command.

Turning to the droid besides her, she handed over the datapad along with another command. "Reach out to Senator Victoria's aide, arrange to pick up a sample." (@Xorism) The droid nodded and left, as Jasnah sat back and continued observing the proceedings.
