Now is not the time nor the place even for a discussion of that sort, Riebe answered.
"That wasn't a negotiation," Danni observed aloud. Riebe glanced at her for a moment.
"No," she agreed, "it wasn't. But we have nothing further to say about it. We will return to our ship. From there, we shall report to the Council."
"If he's just going to take over Sith Space, shouldn't we concentrate on rescue efforts?" Danni wondered. "I mean, I think it's fairly well established that he's got a powerful enough fleet to do whatever he wants... unless maybe he's bluffing."
Riebe laughed darkly. "Do you really believe that, Danni?"
Danni lowered her eyes to the floor. "No."
"Then this conversation is over," Riebe concluded. "We return to our ship, make our report, and return to Coruscant."
