Bows to the mighty empress and promises that Mars shall aid the mighty Terra in whatever way possible during this trying time.

Oh dear. What I want to know is what set them off. I mean, we've been hearing rumours about agents provacateur meddling in Bremeni/Coriolan affairs for some time now, but nobody could ever substantiate anything. At least not enough to go to the press, and you know how Lunaya Pravda would jump all over something like that. So what made the Ambassadors start swinging at each other in court?
This can't be good at all, no indeed....
(It's true what the Admiral says about the recruitment efforts. I even got an advert for joining up! Un/fortunately, my eyesight precludes anything but the most desk-bound job, and they have plenty of people already who prefer paper-pushing to being sworn at for being purple!)

Good question. Maybe
's in the process of investigating that...it would be interesting to know. Might even help stop the war, if interference could be proved, but I guess that's really unlikely at this point. You know how much the Bremeni and Coriolans hate each other...doesn't take much to set them at each other's throats. *grimace*
And - did you catch that bit about the Bremeni ambassador using purple as an insult? Ouch. Not to mention the Coriolan's reference to genetic mutations, which the Bremeni are so touchy about (even if they haven't shared with us the reason
it's such a bad thing to bring up...I've always been curious about that.) I think things have gone too far already, at least between the two ambassadors. Maybe there are calmer heads in their respective governments, but it doesn't look hopeful.
Wow, did you? Oddly enough, I haven't seen any of that sort of thing. But, you know, I doubt they're advertising at library schools (does the Fleet need librarians?), and I have been very much immersed in the world of school of late...
