Senior staff member Indali, representing Elder Sargos and speaking from a prepared speech:
Good Fortune and happiness, to you all, my dear friends. Forgive me if I do not celebrate quite yet our victory in this war. Some of you may know I lost my son two years ago in a space battle deep on Dhayut territory. I just found out that my daughter had died in heavy fighting against Dhayut troops on their designated homeworld a mere week before they sued for peace. It has been a difficult road for myself, but so it has for very many of us. Still, forgive an old man his absence.
I congratulate our Leader on prevailing in this long and tumultuous endeavor. The responsibilities upon his shoulders have been immense and peace will only bring a brief reprieve as our galactic community must find its feet again. Our friends and allies among the stars may even think unkindly of us for what we have done, but such is the way of the leader, a lonely path, indeed. Only remember this, my dearest friends, it was not a thing we would choose to do, or wish upon anyone. Rather, our decision and its consequences were forced upon us by those we have overcome. Always remember that. Always.
Ah, but Life goes on, does it not? A hard thought for one such as myself at this time, but I remember my duties and my oaths. So, what to do with those Dhayut who may break away from this puppet regime that is left of their empire of terror? We must defeat them. We have lost too much to let go now. Our allies may not understand now, but in time they will forgive.
Pirates are on the rise? Not surprising given that war breeds chaos. Well, then, we must defeat them. We brought these pirates on with our war and now we must sweep them aside, for war is done. Our friends will look kindly upon that, we can be assured.
As for ourselves, we must remain who we are, Securan. We must hold to harmony and happiness, retain the spark of Life that drives us all. Be joyful in the Journey, in Life as well as in this wonderful galaxy.
Health and happiness, my friends. We have earned it many times over.
