Thanks for your comments, guys! I haven't looked at that thread on the "spoiler ships," but I will eventually. :)
When last we left our intrepid Securan gals, they were steaming off toward Helu to seize a colony from the evil invading Shakturi. Unfortunately, we don't have the forces to fight both the Shakturi and the Gizurean. When the shrimp ambassador asks for a cease-fire, we first ask them to become our vassal. They refuse this suggestion, but they continue to press for a cease-fire, and at last we accept it, albeit grudgingly. We shall deal with them in time. In the meantime, we take quiet glee in accepting tribute from them.
