Sanuk, the President of the UFP sits behind the large desk in his offic that bears the symbol of the Federation.  Expression impassive as ever, he begins his address:

"Just a few short days ago, I issued a decree indicating any attack on the interests of the Federation or the Klingon Empire would be considered an act of war.  A short time ago, I have received information that the Klingon vessel jey'naS was destroyed by two Cardassian vessels.    The continued blood-thristy actions of the Cardassians leave us no choice in this matter.   As of the moment of the attack on the jey'naS, the Federation considers itself to be in a state of war with the Cardassian Union.   Any vessels of Cardassian designation that enter Federation space will be destroyed.   I regret that matters have progressed to this point.  We have offered sufficient opportunity for the Cardassians to work out a peace that would be acceptable to all parties.  Unfortunately, they have chosen a different path.   This concludes my address."
