Events Edit

Day 1 Edit

The Chair recognizes Senator Ejer Uy, announcing his idea for a new bill:

Bill 1: Presented by Senator Ejer Uy of the Hunre Empire.

Original Version:

All space travel that may pass through any part of the galaxy within 10 parsecs of any Grox Colony is to be rescheduled to go outside of the Grox territory for safety reasons. Any spaceship found to be near Grox territory will be fined. Permission can be asked of the High Court for an exception.

Final Version:

All civilian space travel that may pass through any part of the galaxy within 10 parsecs of any Grox Colony is to be rescheduled to go outside of the Grox territory for safety reasons. Any spaceship not designed for military purposes found to be near Grox territory will be fined. Permission can be asked of the High Court for an exception. Military space travel is allowed to go within 10 parsecs of a Grox colony for any purpose.

(from Senator Etah)

I am forced to say no to this. My people have been trying to break through the Grox's defenses since time immemorial. Ever since the first Karnasaur ship left Karnas thousands of years ago, we found their shell thin, breakable, but we decided to wait. Since then, we have been at unending war, and now, Ejer Uy wishes to make our eternal combat illegal? No.

(from Senator Ejer Uy)

Sorry, Senator maybe just all civilian travel (being banned) will suit your needs perhaps?

(From Senator Etah)

I will allow those circumstances.

The Bill is passed under the following conditions: All civilian travel to the Near Core zone is banned; Military travel is permitted.

Session is declared over.

Day 2 Edit

The Chair recognizes Senator Etah on his concerns and idea for bureaucracy.

Bureaucracy in the Senate

"Fellow senators, heed my word. Bureaucracy has poisoned our Senate! Many of you fear these bureaucrats, as either they will destroy you and have others turn a blind eye, or have purchased your allegiance. Listen to me! I will save you from these nom'res (Karnasaur insult)! Speak as you would speak, not as those who you fear would! The Karnasaurs would be more then happy to protect you from these overlords, these, these evil haters of democracy! Give us the permission to! Give your vote to us, so that we will be allowed to save you from those who would overthrow this great Republic we have built. Vote Now, my brothers and sisters! Give birth to a new age of freedom and true democracy!"

How exactly senator is there an Bureaucracy, there is no 1 or 2 people leading this(well there me and you but that is not the point) Senate, also we do not have sub-levels or the sort, please explain to me how this is not an democracy.

(from Senator Etah)

It's simple--Storyline. The Senate has formerly been suffering from bureaucracy I fear there may be more, according to the Senate storyline. This is purely cosmetic.

Karnasaur Scandle

The Chair recognizes Senator Etah on a recent news bulletin (see talk page).

"I AM OUTRAGED BY THIS PROPAGANDA! I DEMAND THAT THIS REPORTER BE ARRESTED UNDER CHAPTER 3, ARTICLE 4, PARAGRAPH 7, VERSE 7: 'All untrue propaganda aimed at a senator in the hopes of removing influence from them due to disrespect is to be arrested.'. But, it is up to the Senate to decide.

(from Senator Ejer)

Leave the poor media alone, if you didnt want people reporting on you, you should get an restraining order.

(from Senator Etah)

"Ah, but putting a restraining order on one piece of poperazi scum would bring the attention of more poperazi scum, and the tabloids. Then, I would have to make more restraining orders, meaning more poperazi, and more attention from the tabloids. The cycle will repeat itself till I shut out the entire galactic media! And my private life was violated by that reporter! I hardly ever get to see my wife, let alone have a heart beat alone with her. Its either the media, or the kids, or the Senate. And no, I'm not going to resign. My empire is depending on me to be thier voice. If I finally get a chance to be romantic again, I don't want some Spode d***ed reporter telling the entire galaxy, and making me look like some sex-craver!"

"The Chair declares the Karnasaur Senator to be going out of order. Stand down, Senator. Thats you first warning."

"...I will comply."

"The Chair brings foward the reporter."

(from Senator Ejer)

"As you can see this reporter is your average person, he is only doing his job, and I do not think Senator Etah has any right to use that sort of tone and those sort of words around here, now I think the senator owes this man an apology and we should contiune on with the real things that matter."

Session is declared over

Day 3 Edit

The Chair recognizes Senator Etah on his Privacy Protection Act.

Bill 2: Privacy Protection Act

I will apologize to the reporter, however, I do not wish for this sort of thing to happen ever again. I propose a Privacy Protection Act, one that will assure every senator's privacy is not to be invaded by the media. If this act is not passed, I assure you, YOU will be next.

Original Version: Reporters are only allowed to film and watch the senate overall do its job and approve and decline bills. Senators are not to be questioned and reporters can be requested to leave by a senator in case that senator wishes to have privacy for up to an hour. This can be extended by a majority vote.

"Is that a threat senator? Because it seems like you are impiling that you will make this happen?"

(from Senator Etah)

"Senator Ejer, how would it be possible for me to control the galactic media? Besides, GNN has gone rogue hundreds of times. They always look to the poperazi for thier reports, instead of their actual reporters. They almost always rely on juicy propaganda. Wait a second... can we please send that reporter in, one last time?"

"The Chair will comply."

(Reporter is brought in)

"The Chair would know why you asked?"

"I told 'yas, I din't do notin'!"

"...Oh, yes you did! You were a terroist against the Karnasaur Empire, sanctioned as a propaganda unit! I busted you and your cronies after you 6th transmission during my days as IDOWI (Imperial Department of Off-World Investagation), Anti-Terroism Unit! Senators, listen to me! There was a break-out at the Cana Prison Colony, but only one broke out: A person in the Terroist Containment Block. This man: Brak Oloma."

The Bill is Passed.

Session is declared over

Trial of Brak Oloma Edit

"The Defendent, Brak Oloma, is charged with 6 cases off-world terrorism in the form of propaganda, one case of invasive propaganda, and one case of refusing punishment."

"Quite the list. How do you plead?"

"...I'm going to come clean. I know that this will make things better. I plead guilty."

"My, thats something you don't see every day. For honesty, as with all who plead guilty, I'm dropping the charges of refusal of punishment. Senators, It's up to you to decide suited punishment."

SuggestionsEdit

(from Senator Ejer)

Our empire does not give second chances, we vote for firing squad or slow hanging.

(from Senator Etah)

The Karnasaurs beleive that less advanced species who use technology that is not thiers to harrass more advanced species do not deserve to join the Ancients. I move for his immediate placement in a stasis pod. Karnasaurs have the ability to simulate dreaming, we can throw nightmare after nightmare at him and he won't ever be able to wake up. It's a fate worse then death, used only against those who have earned it.

VerdictEdit

The Chair decedices that the use of the stasis pod is torture which breaks the Intergalactic Genvana Convention, so the prisoner will be given toxics that will not allow him to wake up, and will be thrown in a jail cell.

"No please don't do it I beg you!"

"Guards take him away!"

"I will have my revenge just you..."

The door shuts.

(As they walk down the hall, the Karnasaur and Hunre senators speak to one another (Talk page))

Day 4 Edit

The Chair recognizes Senator Yatug Gat, on his Spice Selling Act:

Bill 3: Presented by Senator Yatug Gat of the Heglarean Empire.

"Hello. Today, I would like to introduce a new bill. It considers spice."

Original Version: All spice that is mined is to be shipped immediately to a nearby Spice Storage station, this can be almost anything, from a bank to a spice storage building to a cellar owned by the government of the empire that mined it. It will then be sorted out to prevent packaging mistakes, and then shipped out to a selling station where they will be bought. To help against smuggling and piracy each spice transport, or spice freighter will be accompanied by one single fighter.

  • Senator Yatug Gat

  • Senator Etah 'Omwar
  • Senator Ejer Uy


Abstain

FeedbackEdit

(From Senator Ejer) Though there are some good points in here like fighter escorts, I still say this bill needs to be rewritten, because the sorting of spice will cause huge delays in spice-dependent regions. Also some might not even like an fighter with them for the fear of being cited as an military target. So I am not saying yes or no, and wish to let the bill be revised.

(From Senator Yatug) Yes, but if we do not use the fighter escorts we will not be able to help against piracy and smuggling. Also, we know of a machine that can sort a ton of mixed spice in under and hour. Because those are the basic points I would like to have in it, I cannot rewrite it. If you have an ideas, you should try to rewrite it yourself, Ejer.

(From Senator Raf) Ejer, a single fighter cannot do much damage if they possibly do damage at all.

(From Senator Yatug) Another one of my points of the good sides of this.

(From Senator Etah') Sorry for my recent abscence, I was attending some business with my partners from the Office of Special Training and Reconaissence concerning the escape of Brak Oloma and his aids (*snicker*). As for the bill, why go through with such a complex process? Even if sorting with this Heglarean Sorting device takes less then an hour, I know other races rely on out of empire shipping compinies for cheaper transport, kind of like those, uh, what was it... something that starts with an m, no, it was h, uh... well, they're a Stage 4 (Civ Stage) species, and one nation relies on the other for cheap products (poor fools, they'll be bought out in no time...). Anyway, paying for the shipping to the storage, the escort, the sorting, the shipping to the delivery station, and then the actual delivery will skyrocket the price for a single spice unit. Empires would rather harvest their own spice and go through the high prices there then deal with time delays and high prices. And that would drain corperations of thier spice mining and shipping investments, dealing a large blow to galactic economy. Would you really want to go through with all those bankruptcy claims, all those requests for economic startup cash, and don't get me started on stock market crashes.

(From Senator Yatug) "It is not complex though. To prevent piracy, terrorism, theft and spice misplacement. Harvested spice is sent to a near by sorting station, which at the same time, is sending out spice, would make little difference. The second point is the escort, which governments do. The sorting machines use very little fuel and rarely need to be maintained. Spice costs would at Maximum raise a single sporebuck, for the safety sorting of spice."

(From Senator Ejer)

I agree with Senator Etah, I am now changing my vote to nay.

(From Senator Yatug)

I comply, this bill has been rejected. Thank you for your time in discussing this.

The Billed is not Passed.

Day 5 Edit

The Chair recognizes Senator Etah, on his concern for the breakout of Brak Olama. The Chair will comply with his request to keep this from the Galactic Media.

"Thank you. Senators, as I stated yesterday, I am a Spectre. I've had experince in the past with some of the galaxies worst criminals, most powerful organizations, and deadliest plots and conspricies. Two days ago, Brak Oloma was freed from his punishment by a pair of Karnasaurs. I will tell you now: these Karnasaurs are not dangerous. The Spectres will not get involved, as the Karnasaur DOWS (Department of Off-World Security) has juristiction over these criminals. Thank you."

(During his speech, the Senator looks unnerved and sounds suspiciously robotic. His wings also twitch.)

ResponsesEdit

(From Senator Ejer)

What? What is an Spec- whatever? And how are these Karnasaurs not dangerous? They assualted 2 of our guards. We have as much jurdisition over these felonys as you do. Th-. (the Senator stops and leaves the senate building)

(From Senator Etah)

I apologize for not explaining. Spectres are agents of the Office of Special Training and Reconassaince, pretty much the elite out-of-empire security force. Though technically senatorial, the Karnasaurs have the majority of the Spectres, and so its more or less a galactic Karnasaur Peace Corps. I am one of them. As for these Karnasaurs, I cannot disclose information on them, other then the fact that the Spectres aren't getting involved . They are no more then mere criminals that the DOWS agents will handle (wings twitch again). And I assure you, despite the attacks on the guards,they aren't dangerous (wings twitch).

(Senator Yatug looks at Senator Etah in a confused look)

(From Senator Ejer)

(Walks back in)

Sorry I had to take an breather. But I heard it on the outside tv. How do you know they arent dangerous? In fact if they arent, why are your wings twitching so much?

(From Senator Yatug)

If you can not disclose any more information, was there a point of bringing it up Etah?

(From Senator Etah)

Yes. Yes there was, but I cannot disclose that information. Now, I suggest you both drop the subject for your own good. And no I'm not threating you. I'm protecting you. The Spectres are above the law. They can do as they please and not have to deal with the consequences. And I have no control over who they think asks do many inconvienant questions. But as I said, the Spectres aren't going to deal with this (wings twitch). (There seems to be a pattern for this strange twitching...)

(From Senator Yatug)

"Very well, Etah. Is there any other vital information you would like us to know? Per the privacy protection act, you can ask senators to leave while you tell us if you wish to have more privacy. Like could you please tell us how Spectres are protecting us as we speak?"

(From Senator Etah)

"I never said the Spectres were protecting you. I said I was trying to protect you. I'm not allowed to give you specifics,but they will allow this: Lets just say, I'm the loose thread keeping a 2 ton block from falling."

(When the Senator finishes speaking, Yatug and Ejer notice a small written note next to them. They both say: "If you want to know more,meet me on the Karnasaur consular vessel, the Voice of the Ancients. You now have clearence. This note will self-destruct in...just kidding.")

Day 6Edit

The chair recongizes Senator Ejer.

" My fellow senators, this is an grave time for us, we have already had an breach of secuirty, and this is unacceptable." " You as well I am sick, and tired, of this outrage." (his voice begins to rise) " We must not, NEVER let this senate fall." " The fate of the Galaxy depends on us." " So I ask today, Senator Etah to come out with his so called secerts, and tell us-"

(A gunshot rangs out) (Senator Ejer falls off the podium) (Medics rush in to assist) (The senator is taken away) (A few more shots are fired) (The gunshots cease, and guards fill room)

(From Senator Yatug)

"Not good. The terrorist group has taken down Ejer. But he is right, we must not panic we must never let this senate fall."

(From Senator Etah)

"I told you to stay away!"

Guard: Sorry sir, the Spectres couldn't let him go on. This is like on Virmire, remember? We had to choose,and we chose to kill him.

Etah: How dare you!

(He pulls a pistol out and kills the Spectre guard. He shoots many more.)

Etah:I swear upon the heart of the Ancients, upon the foundation of the Karnasaurs, and upon the entirety of the Senate, I will not let the Senate fall. And so I tell you everything. The Hasheons haven't made thier move yet. I know where they are, I know what they plan to do, and I know how to stop them. And with my "rouge" status as a Spectre, I will stop them! I, and I alone, shall travel to the Hasheon's home, and I alone shall stop them all. (Runs out of building) (See Etah's Mission for details on his mission)

(Senators break out of building and teleport away to their ships to leave. Yatug follows Etah)

Day 7Edit

(Senator Ejer returns home) (see talk page)

(Senatorial activity is suspended until the Hasheon threat is diminished)

Day 12Edit

(Senatorial activity continues)

The chair recognizes Senator Otto von Gunther to bring up his introductory bill to the senate.

"Hello, fellow senators. My bill brings up the subject of war."

Original: No war waged by any empire can be officially branded illegal, and all empires save the Grox will be able to wage war as they please.

Final: Only wars with no reason, and wars for fun or massacre are considered illegal, and all other types of war and conflict are not prohibited except by wartime restrictions already laid out by the Genvana Convention.

Bill passed with 2/3rds vote (Including minor empires.)

VotesEdit

  • Ejer Uy

Abstain

  • Yatuj Gat

FeedbackEdit

(From Senator Ejer Uy)

We Hunres believe that some wars are to be considered illegal, as some are unprovoked, and some are for the fun of war, which cannot be tolerated. Innocent people do not have to die for no reason. We propose that an edit be made to this bill stating that only wars that start for logical reasons are to be considered "legal".


(From Senator Otto von Gunther)

I agree to edit the bill, but only under two conditions. The first being a definite description of a "legal" war. The second being allowing wars started for the purpose of liberation and territorial expansion.


(From Muryiam Legatu)

I am somewhat unfamiliar with how politics work in this region of space, but according to our own laws, we have two main classes of war. The first kind is most likely the "legal" war you are referring to: territorial disputes. The second kind of war is more serious. We only officially declare the second kind on empires that violate our Commandments. In secular terms, we declare it if the opponent breaks one of our major laws. Perhaps a war may be considered illegal if the empire breaks one of the major laws of this region, and any surrounding empires will declare war as a police action.


(From Senator Otto von Gunther)

That sounds like a good base to work off of, Mr. Legatu. My main point is that any moves based on expanding territory would not be restricted.


The bill is passed.

Session is delcared over

Day 13Edit

Due to no proposals for the day by the other senators, Otto von Gunther has now brought up the repealing of a bill.

"Fellow senators, I wish to repeal the Privacy Protection Act. While the people have every right to protect their privacy, we senators have willingly volunteered to be senators and take any and all responsabilities that come with it, as well as inconveniences. Second, the restriction of reporters and the further restriction that can be granted temporarily by this bill can be abused easily for malicious purposes. Say there is a vote on a controversial bill, and all but the senators oppose it. Under this bill, the senators could secretly vote and then just cast the blame on their colleagues, enabling the senators to pretty much bypass their literal empires of constituents. If you wonder why I bring this up, it is because I serve my people, not the other way around."

Original: The Privacy Protection Act is to be repealed.

FeedbackEdit

(from Muryiam Legatu)

Your arguments are merely speculation of what could happen rather than on what has happened. As we Dhragolon are still new to this sector, I would like to see more documentation on how this act has been abused if it even has. Back home, there is a metaphor our people speak, "Do not repair what is flawless", or in simpler terms, "Don't fix what isn't broken."

(from Otto von Gunther)

Your point has merit, Senator, but we Eteno also have a saying: The wise man strikes first. In these circumstances, this means that it is better to get rid of this legislation than take a chance. Despite the fact that this legislation has not been used for malicious purposes, the problem is that a senator could use it in that fashion. In our own history, one of our rulers was given an Unigram and she took a Rommel.
