Beerax Seeks Secession!
IC Date: Mon Jul 15 2402
"Good evening. I am Grin Glu reporting for INN," a sharply-dressed Bolian begins. "Just moments ago, representatives of Beerax filed a bill with the Galaxy Alliance high council for secession in proper form according to Alliance law."
The camera angle changes to show a feed of a Beeraxi senator addressing the high council firmly and directly, though without angry gestures. As he speaks, the voice of the INN correspondent can be heard narrating. "The Beeraxi representatives included in their secession bill a claim to all government property within the Beeraxi star system, including Station Alcatraz."
"With us this evening is Dr. T'man, professor of political science at the University of Betazed. Professor, what is your analysis of this situation?" The camera angle changes to split-screen between the Bolian and the professor.
"Good evening. The secession bill filed by Beerax follows the precedent set forth by the Rihannsu Stelam Empire and the Cardassian Union. The bill does adhere to Alliance law for such matters, and it must be considered a valid bill. Their claim, however, to the government property in their space is questionable and depends, largely, upon the vote from the full council."
"Thank you, Dr. T'man," Grin Glu replies. The camera focuses solely on the reporter once more. "With breaking news in the Sol sector, I'm Grin Glu. Stay tuned for updates as they become available."
