Will and the King proceeded along a path towards the entrance to the palace; their respective guards trailing behind. The Squib was talking animately about the various parts of the palace, drawing Will's attention to different things. He listened intently, taking in everything the King said as well as details about their surroundings.

He was lead to a conference room at the centre of the palace, its transparisteel roof giving a marvellous view of the blue sky overhead. Will motioned for the rest of his team to stay outside. He handed his pistol to one of the troopers and entered the room. The King paused slightly when Will drew his pistol, but continued when saw Will hand it over.

Two of the King's guards stood behind him against the wall, while the rest waited outside. The King took his raised seat at one side of the table, motioning towards the seat he wished Will to sit in.

"Your proposal, koovy Admiral."
"Of course. My government watched from afar as your last King attempted to secure Skor II's place in the galaxy. We watched as he took a peace loving people and turned them into warriors. We watched as he bought weapons of war and used intimidation to get other worlds to join the Honorable Union. He brought shame upon the peace-loving people of Skor II. He did, however have the right idea when he tried to protect the Squibs. What he didn't have was the support of the people. He didn't take into account what the people want. As a result he was ousted. I am here on behalf of my government to give you the opportunity to protect your people in a way that he could not. Were you to accept our protection we would not annex your planet or use it for military purposes. Skor II would remain as beautiful and untouched as it has always been. We would not pollute your orbit with weapons of war or ugly satellites. For a small tax payable per week to the Vorzyd Government you would recieve protection from any outsiders who would seek to do you harm. You would be given access to trade routes operated by the Vorzyd Government, thereby increasing the market for your goods. We have recently established a military base in this sector and would be here in a matter of hours in the event of a violation of your sovereignty."

EDIT: FRAK! just realised I need two negotiation posts...

The King had not given an answer, but had invited Will to stay while he considered his words. That had been a week ago. Will was readying himself for another visit to the King when his commlink beeped. It was Tiara.

"They fled. We are in control of Csilla space. There were a couple of additions too. I think I will have them stay with the fleet once they are debriefed. You can keep an eye on them."
"Them?"
"One of the Chiss Syndics defected, as did a Captain in the defense force. Admiral Ar'alani and Captain Be'ruto."
"Admiral?"
"Yeah. Good luck for us isn't it?"
"Luck, or we may be very willingly accepting a double agent."
"That's why I'm posting them to the second fleet under you. Nat won't let them anywhere near Vorzyd just yet though. How go the negotiations?"
"Jury's still out. I'm gonna go have another talk to the King; the fact that the seat of Chiss power has fallen will do a lot to enhance our reputation."
"Good luck, Will."
"You too, Ti."

Tiara's hologram disappeared, leaving Will to his thoughts. Csilla had fallen in a bloodless battle. So what if they fled; the King doesn't need to know that part just now. Will stood and left the Daedalus, walking with a Squib escort to the palace. The King met him in the same room as before, but Will elected to keep his pistol this time.

"It has been a week since we last spoke, and there are some developments that I feel you should know about. I also want to re-iterate.

Vorzyd has joined a protectorate of sorts, the Oligarchy of Vita. It has become the capital of the Oligarchy and now maintains a fleet in the Eastern and Southern Galactic segments. I have just spoken to the Chief of Naval Operations, Fleet Admiral Tiara Tranda and she has told me that the seat of Chiss power, Csilla has fallen. Not only that, but she managed to take it without losing a single life. We have also liberated two high-ranking Chiss officers who wished to join. This recent development indicates our arrival as a naval power and shows that we are able to protect you as we say we will. Our forces have proven themselves and will be ready should Skor II need to call on them. I will now ask you formally. Will you join the Oligarchy of Vita for the safety and prosperity of your people?"

"I am afraid not, Admiral. We squibs do not get involved in Galaxy problems."
"As you wish, sir."

Will stood, bowed and left the room. He collected his crew and took a short speeder ride back to the Daedalus. Within the hour the ship was in orbit and jumping to hyperspace, heading for Anoat.

The Daedalus is en route to Anoat.
