It takes a few hours of negotiations, but we are in stellar form. Despite a strong acumen for business negotiation, Sakai makes concession after concession. He knows his forces are inadequate to protect one world from the Zerg, much less two.
Surprisingly enough, he and his council fight us as hard on the issue of sharing their resources as they do with the amount of say we will have in their government. They maintain a hard stance, but in the end, it will still be profitable for both of us.
The topic of Corvus Kingston comes up, of course. We demand the right to deal with him ourselves, to which Sakai chuckles.
"If you can find him, you can have him. Ever since we split off from his new and improved Confederacy, we've had everybody we had or could bribe on Tarsonis trying to locate him. We knew taking him out would be basically the same as taking Tarsonis itself. We never made any headway."
Well, not everything can turn out perfect.
The Subsidiary Treaty is drawn up, vetted by Morian lawyers, signed, notarized, signed again, dated, copied in triplicate, faxed mercilessly from office to office, and filed with ancillary documents.
Moria works for us, now.
(Goddamn, Quest 64 was a terrible game)
