*Dalos Alpha Prime, Republic Senate Building, Chamber of Exploration. The President is standing by a window, looking out into the vast Dalosian Metropolis of Dalosa City, the Dalosian Capital. 5 Senators and a Republic Naval Admiral are sitting around a round table near him.*
Admiral Davarr (A Dalosian Officer in the Republic Navy): The Danos Minor discovery is of incredible value to the scientific community!
Senator Malpez (Solain - from Solais): To the Republic as a whole, Admiral.
President Dalakar (Dalosian): And of political importance as well.
Think about it. The Federation has been exploring the Andromeda Galaxy for nearly a century. Not to sound like a politician, but that's quite a substantial advantage.
Senator Tena (Human): With respect, we have been making a lot more alliances than the Federation, and our economy is more stable thanks to our trade agreements. The Turanian Alliance has even proposed a merge with the Republic!
Dalakar: A discussion for another time, Senator.
I know our policy was to finish exploring our own galaxy first... but the prospect of exploring a whole new Galaxy, untainted by our hands has a certain appeal to it.
Malpez: A chance to do things again, the right way this time.
Dalakar: I think some of the budget could stand to be placed on the 'Pegasus Project'?
Davarr: I'll be in the car.
Dalakar: I'll put the motion before the Senate tomorrow.
*Everyone shakes their heads. Dalakar, Malpez and Davarr walk out. Tena hears the sound of wind before her, turning to see a black figure, blurred.*
Shadow *displaced*: It must not be allowed. We need more time.
Tena: I will do my best, Master.
*New Vienna, Khitomer. A shuttle lands on Vanguard Tower, with Blake, Sanders, Forest and Danny waiting as the doors open. Sanders welcomes Hawk back as he steps off. He then turns to Sam, carrying a bag over her shoulder.*
Sanders: Welcome back, Captain.
Sam: 'Sam'. I'm not with the Republic Military now.
Hawk: She means she's taken an extended leave.
Sam: Same difference.
And I'm not 'back'... it's just I honestly don't have a place to stay.
Sanders: You're welcome here as long as you like.
Forest: Well, I can safely say I have no objections. It'll be a welcome change to have someone who can fence words with Hawk and win for a change.
Hawk: Ha ha.
*Hawk walks back into the shuttle, grabbing a bag and tossing it to Forest.*
Since you're so supportive, you can help her with her stuff.
*Forest and Hawk walk back inside.
Sanders looks at Sam.*
Sanders: Want to talk about it?
Sam: Later. I just need to get away.
Sanders: Of course. Let me take that... *Sanders takes her bag and carries it inside. Blake walks over.*
Blake: Don't worry, I'm not gonna make you feel welcome like you're a god-send.
Sam: Oh, thank you.
Blake: Blake Matthews, formerly of Starfleet. Also known as--
Sam: Armada. Yes, I remember. Where's Jacob?
Blake: A good question. Last we heard, he was working with ONI, but since then he's vanished.
*Blake steps aside as Sam looks at Danny.*
