The following brief video of the President of the United Federation of Planets was broadcast via subspace by all Federation communications facilities. It was also forwarded to each of the major powers.
"Citizens of the known galaxy, I speak to you on behalf of the United Federation of Planets, and in the interests of peace. Recents events have caused untold loss throughout the galaxy. The time has come for all of this to end, and for us to forge a lasting peace. The United Federation of Planets hereby invites all major power in our known galaxy to Earth for a Summit of Peace. This invitation is open to all, for without the participation of each of the major powers, we cannot lay plans for a lasting peace. War only serves to weaken us all. Let us work together to gain a lasting peace, that will profit us all. I look forward to replies from all on this matter. This ends my transmission."
