Republic Senate Discusses about Coruscant

September 2, 2012

Reporter Rakiko Lowtide attended the latest Senate meeting since the Mandalorian and Sith Empires occupation of Coruscant.

Coming together to discuss the matter of Coruscant, the latest Senate meeting was held on the Republic world of Onderon. The proceedings were overseen by Vice-Chancellor Frenris Kha’jiir as the Chancellor’s duties to the military and the Republic citizenry precluded her from attending. Also in attendance were Senators Nomi Drewmoore of Dantooine, Ayeka Kel of Onderon, Shan Connell of Bengat, Sapphire Tafo of Tython, Heather Le’verve of Velmor, and Rain of Yavin IV. Guests included Queen Sunamoon of Naboo, NJO Master Marsh Solo and Jedi Zack Mistwalker along with several security and advisor personnel.

Senate meeting on Onderon

After making sure the Senate was secure and all weapons of non-security personnel confiscated, the Senate began the proceedings first discussing whether to even negotiate with the Mandalorians. Then whether to accept the terms the Mandalore gave on his withdrawl from Coruscant, specifically after his discussion with the chancellor Vandergraff and the Senator Connell, the Republic would have to give up the Fondor system, an important shipyard and technological center. After a discussion on whether the Republic could even “give” a system as Republic worlds are still sovereign, an issue brought up by Miss Le’verve and what they would do with the displace Fondorans, a matter Ayeka Kel stated she had a solution for with the help of her Onderon company, the Senate decided to send a Jedi to negotiate more with the Mandalore.

The Senate then discussed on the matter of the Mandalore’s proposal of Fondor if the new negotiations failed. The Mandalorians stated that they would leave Coruscant for Fondor and allow those that wished to leave that planet to leave peacefully, being evacuated by the Republic. At that time the status of Fondor was unclear as it was claimed not too long ago by a the Imperial Conclave. However, it appears both the mandalorians and the Republic believed it’s within Republic territory, even if a few senators were perplexes. Nonetheless, the Senate still discussed the proposal.

Upon immediate word that the Mandalore would not discuss new terms, though the Jedi still decided they would try to speak with him, the discussion then turned to what to do with Fondor. Ayeka Kel again reiterated that they should send a team to speak with Fondor and began evacuating Fondor citizens, and offered a work to the skilled one in the Kel-Core Industries. Senator Tafo stated if ever Fondor was part of the Republic, any negotiations should be discussed with their Senator. The members cannot be removed such a way by the Senate. Heather Le’verve added that the Republic doesn’t own territory to be handed to others and it would be up to Fondor to join the mandalorians or not.

Upon vote, the Senate unanimously voted not to give into the Mandalore’s demands and struck down his proposal.

Senate discusses about the Mandalor’s demands.

The Queen of Onderon made the surprise offer that the Republic should offer the Onderon’s moon, Dxun in exchange for Coruscant. Dxun has been a favorite to the Mandalorians for centuries and had settlements there up to recently, many of which may still be there. Many of the Senators then stated once again that the Republic couldn’t give territory and that the Queen of Onderon would have to make these negotiations herself. Other such as Le’verve and Kha’jiir believed it would be an insult to the Mandalore to offer something the mandalorians probably already believe is rightfully theirs. Others like Senator Tafo stated that since the almost deserted moon had a strong mandalorian heritage and that Onderon was willing to give up ownership’s rights should be considered especially since it would avoid to open a second conflict. She also added that the Mandalorians should release all the slaves that had been captured or transported to Corsucant by their allies after they reopened the slave trade. Due to the lack of consensus, the Onderon Queen removed her proposal and her claim at the end.

Ayeka Kel then offered a motion to vote on leaving things the way they were, with no offers of territory and to take advantage of the economic boon to the Republic not having to administer Coruscant. The motion was seconded and came to vote. It passed two, Bengat and Onderon in favor, to zero as four members abstained from voting due to the Coruscant Senator not being present.

On adjournment of the Senate meeting, it was decided to send a Jedi to continue negotiations with the Mandalore and not act on any proposals of yet, letting the matter ride itself out.

      Actually, you all conquered a planet that produces nothing. Coruscant is a massive economic drain, so from a numbers standpoint, it is more financially viable to not have Coruscant due to not having to pay the companies and 60 Framing worlds that supply the planet each day. Coruscant may have the highest population, but it has the lowest productivity quotient of any world.

      Only replying to this because no one did so before now.

    This does not make sense. How can the republic give the mandalorians a moon they already own? There is simply no logic in this, I do not think they are stupid enough to believe this gesture was given out of the good of republic hearts. In fact, it may insult them, thus making relations worse. If the republic wishes to offer something to the mandalorians, it would be polite to make sure they do not own it before hand.

    Trade? since when do we mando’s trade for what we can easily conquer?

      Since you realized that weapons, armor, fuel, food.. .basically every single resource to remain a Mandalorian requires some form of trade.

        I realize that but obviously that doesn’t include planet swapping, err well, it shouldn’t

        Why not sell them back their world, rather then wait for them to fight constantly for it to the point that it’s not even worth keeping…

    Viceroy Alastor Wade :

    Short answer? Honor. Better to fight and lose against whoever decides to retake coruscant then to hand it over without a fight, or to sell it or to trade it, etc

    Like there is sooooo much honor in hurting innocent civilians. *gives two thumbs up* Nice job there. Can’t wait to see what’s next in the honor giving department!!

      Any ‘harmless’ citizens being hurt should be adressed to mandalore, atleast that is if a mandalorian is doing it (try not to confuse us with death watch, they have no honor) That said I detect that your comment was mainly meant to incite and inspire hate, rebellion, etc and was probably just a lie.

        Maybe you should pay attention to the news more often.

        *News bulletins would display that the Current Civilian casualty count from the initial invasion up to now number approximatley twenty thousand. This being due to Collateral damage and the surgical nature of the invasion.*

    • September 10, 2012 at 2:57 AM

      During millitary operations collateral victims can’t be avoided, that’s war, “Concerned Citizen”.For example an ennemy aircraft opens fire against us and we shoot down with a missile that ship, which unfortunately falls in a homestead area killing accidently 50 people, that’s sad, but another option doesn’t exists, probably in your opinion we shall let the pilot to shoot us until he consumes the whole ammunition and then he will leave or send him a radio warning that we are fighting in a habited area and we can harm people, right? To tell the Senate we wanted Coruscanta?Sweet and probably await them to bring reinforcements. Get lost, citizen of the galaxy.

    Aye, I think you need to look up the words Collateral.
    In any case I did it for you

    Collateral Damage: Unintended damage, injuries, or deaths caused by an action, especially unintended civilian casualties caused by a military operation.

    twenty thousand for a planet that numbers of a trillion isnt a bad number at all. Infact that is a really low amount of unintended casualties

    Surgical in war means precise / accurate attacks

    It doesn’t matter how many are killed when the violence is not needed. Not once did any mandalorian try to communicate they wanted Coruscant did they? Nope! They just decided “Let’s attack cause well that what we do. Honor and that junk.” Well, there you go … honor in killing that ‘unintended death’ I’m sure the child that lost their parent is going to understand how unintended it was when he grows up and just wants to chop your head off. Nice job once more.

      On the other hand, the only thing the Senate was aware on the post-capture negotiation was Mandalorians demanded the Republic evacuate a 5 billions people world for they take its control. I’m not yet sure how come some people believed that proposal was credible enough to be presented to the Senate.

      Give it up, when your original argument has been thrown away for another then you are pretty much only trying to make the other group look bad, which is exactly what you are trying to pull.

  9. Concerned Citizen of the Galaxy

    My original argument wasn’t thrown away. It still stands that twenty thousand people needlessly lost their lives for your honor. That has been my point all along and I will stand behind that from this day and until you are thrown off the planet that you think is your honorable place to stand.

    that isnt my opinion, Personally from a tactical and strategic point of view the planet is worthless, And I dont consider the historical value of the taung holding it to be a Cassus belli to take the planet. (There are none of them left, and most mandalorians are of a human / sub human species, that beat our ancestors off that planet which then proceeded to colonize much of the galaxy)

    The only reason in my eyes to take it would be to provide a moral shock to the holder (in this case the republic) anyway I take it that you will complain about any casualties done by the republic should they try to take it from us, if not then you are just acting a lot like a hypocrite, or are you hoping for a peaceful solution?

    I mean the republic military has never been one for surgical attacks, especially not when you compare them to our specialized and highly trained forces. A full republic invasion will see casualities mount up higher then the low number of 20.000 (which is a loss of 0.000001% of the total life of coruscant)

    You are damn right.Especially the genocide operated by Old Republic Millitary and Jetii against us and their own troops on Malachor V at the end of Mandalorian Wars. Who used the Mass Generator Superweapon, ? Republic and Jetii, their “heroes” Revan and Malak.
