Text communication for general release:

Given the recent actions by Qang Krotoc of the Klingon Empire, I have no choice but to institute a full economic embargo on his government.   All Federation interests are banned from any trade with Qang Krotoc's forces.   I regret that events have led to this, but I have no choice in this matter.  Qang Krotoc has launched an attack on the Gorn that will end up in a slaughter.  Forces loyal to him have spoken of genocide against the Gorn people.  Qang Krotoc has unlawfully disbanded his High Council and turned his government into a fascist dictatorship.  And, Qang Krotoc has ignored all communications asking for any reasonable explanation of his actions.   Therefore, I must institute this trade embargo, effectively immediately.

I still believe it is possible that the Qang is under some outside influence, for his actions lack in honor and logic.  I am certain this message will filter to those loyal to him.  To them, I state: You loyalty is both honorable and commendable, however, think of the actions you are to undertake and you cannot help but question their honor.  Watch Qang Krotoc closely, for if he is under an outside influence, this amounts to an attack on the Klingon Empire.   And, if such is the case, the Federation will certainly stand by its long-time friend and ally.

Signed,
President Sanuk, United Federation of Planets
