Antana arrived in the War Room at a trot, and, not bothering to take in the details of the impressive room, immediately approached the senior officer on duty - it was a pleasant surprise.

"Commodore H'lath," she said, returning the ageing officer's salute. "Good to see you back in action, Toren." The old man's pockmarked face wrinkled into a smile - the former commander of Scarlet Dawn's military and then the Republic's, Toren H'lath had been a figure with almost as much recognisability and respect as Sienar.

"I was pulled out of mothballs by this young lady," he said, indicating a young blonde woman in a suspiciously new Navy uniform. "I was the highest ranking flag officer in the City, apparently."

She saluted. "Emily Cole, I've been seconded from Intelligence." Antana returned the salute and gave an encouraging nod, filing away the name for later - why had Intel sent an officer to the War Office? What division was she from?

More important matters had to be attended to. Velora turned to the gigantic map in the middle of the room, a glowing 2D representation of the galaxy that dominated the whole central table and could also project holographics. "Tell me where we stand," she said.

"I ordered Full Mobilisation as soon as I was reactivated," said Toren, handing Antana a sheaf of papers, each one containing brief summaries of the units and mobilisation process. "All planetary shields have been raised and defences are at full alert. Also, we have this message from the President. Maximum encoding, burst transmission from his personal comlink."

Antana was suprised - that was abnormally quick. She took the small slip of paper. It read: THE HAWK IS OUT OF HER NEST. RENDEZVOUS AT COORDINATE GROUP 6 FOR IMMEDIATE ATTACK ON KENOBI'S GRAVE.

She smiled. "Prepare the 1st Battle Line of the Second Fleet, I will be taking personal command." Toren nodded. "I can trust you to keep things running at this end?"

"Yes sir," he replied, "All this has me feeling like I'm... oh, sixty again." He smiled again. Retirement did not suit men like Toren H'lath - that was their unique gift and their unique curse. No rest for the wicked.

"Thank you," she said, "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to war." The Grand Admiral saluted, and powered out of the room, going fast enough to surprise her bodyguards, but keeping all of her dignity.

Cole took out her comlink, read a short message and then saluted, before leaving the room. Toren turned back to the map and looked down at the Galaxy, little blue counters winking into existence as units reported in at full strength. He said, "Here we go."

Velora and 1st Battle Line, Second Fleet have rendezvoused with the Valkyries
