Wearing the United Federation of Planets High Dress Uniform, a Vulcan male recognizable as the recently-elected President Sanuk steps up to a podium and begins to speak:

"A few minutes ago, I have received word of a fierce battle at Hellesport station.  This battle has left the station with many casualties and extensive damage.  I have ordered a Starfleet vessel, with an extra contingent of medical and engineering officers, to Hellesport space.   The purpose of this is merely to dispatch humanitarian aid.   At this point in time, the Federation shall remain neutral in the matter of Hellesport.   We also shall extend an offer to act as a neutral mediator for both sides involved in this dispute.   Perhaps a solution can be arrived at that will prevent further bloodshed.  I urge both sides to strongly consider this offer."
