-Alliance Ship Galactica-
-Main Conference Room-
-0830hrs-

This meeting had been called to discuss the potential of reforming the Jedi Council, they had decided to do this onboard the Galactica to reduce the chance of any Sith chancing upon them and exposing the entire order to risk. Adama had been working hard to ensure that security had been maintained and he had a constant CAP with at least two squadrons of X-Wings patrolling with AWACS support and a squadron of A-Wings on hot standby incase the situation called for it.

He was not exactly a fan of the meeting being aboard his ship but if it was he was going to ensure that things went smoothly, the Conference table was set up and chairs arranged, this would be largest gathering of Jedi that he could recall and he wondered what the results of this meeting would be. The Order itself would be shaped by the decisions made by those who would attend and so it promised to be an interesting period of time for the Jedi and the Alliance in General

___

Jay Shaun of Cinnagar occupied a seat at the Conference Table.  Clad in all black robes from his neck to his boots.  Sitting easily and resting in preparation for the meeting to begin.  His copper Starfighter sat easily in the Hanger Bay of the Galactica and no astromech or personal assistant had accompanied him.  This strong and strange human had come alone.


Only recently had the Alliance received any word as to this specific human's appearance as a Jedi.  Having formally joined the secret resistance only a few weeks ago as an 'intelligence consultant'.  His occupation as a School Teacher in the Deep Core gave little insight into how or why such a simple sentient being might be of use to the Allied Forces.  He didn't even look threatening.  It was anyone's guess if he would be an asset or a liability at this point.  However, Mr Shaun's presence at the Conference Table spoke volumes as to his personal abilities and interests in the Alliance.  He was a Jedi, through and through.  Even new as he might be.

It should also be noted that Shaun held no formal ranking in the military system known as the 'Alliance'.  Thus he was escorted as a 'guest' during his stay on the Galactica.  He was unarmed too; boarding the ship without even so much as a lightsaber.  It if wasn't for his beaming smile and optimistic voice, this might have just seem more suspicious than usual.  Maybe this guy really was just a School Teacher?  Harmless and carefree.  ...Or, maybe not.

For now.  The black Adept simply sat idle and curious, swiveling easily in his Conference Chair.  Wondering when this strange 'meeting-of-the-minds' was going to get started in earnest.

On approach to the Galactica, Mark stood a monolith of dignity in the center of the bridge. He stared out at the tunnel of hyperspace and watched it fade away as the mighty capital ship loomed in front of them. The Jedi Master had been surprised to hear that a meeting was actually going to take place among the Jedi to decide on a Council. He could have sworn he'd heard this argument before and now as a Jedi Master he would need to show up and actually participate in the debate. Rejecting the invitation probably wouldn't be seen in a good light, what choice did he really have?

"Maintain our position near the Galactica, Lieutenant. I'll be taking the Eta-5. You have the Bridge, Commander," he said looking to his First Officer as the Jedi Master tracked back through his ship to the turbo lift and entered the hanger bay. Activity was abound as people prepared his ship for take off. Mark hopped up into the wing and set himself down into the cockpit and began the pre-flight check list, before long the ship was in the air and hurtling towards the Galactica.

The Eta-5 Interceptor touched down on schedule and from the cockpit stood the Jedi Master, dressed in his uniform with a Jedi Robe worn over it. A young crew man approached him and told him he was expected and would lead the way to the conference room. Mark nodded then, best get it over with as quickly as possible.

Mark
With the Galactica on high alert while the Jedi convened on the Alliance's flagship for their specially called meeting to determine if they should have a Jedi Council or not, Shrike Squadron had been ordered to fly CAP in the off chance they had unwelcome visitors. 

Making her way through the busy hangar bay to her awaiting X-83 TwinTail dressed in her flight suit, Lieutenant Alexandra Russo noticed an Eta-5 Interceptor had just landed. When the canopy opened and it's dark haired pilot climbed out, it was none other than Jedi Master Mark Starkiller. Alex's stomach did flip-flops as her brandy eyes meet his blue and a small smile graced her lips. The long-legged brunette slowed her pace in hopes of getting a brief chance to say hi to her lover in passing. Sometimes that was all the military couple could muster, but it was well worth the sacrifice so they could be together in the long run.

Brandy colored eyes did not go amiss as the Jedi Master stood talking to the young crew man. The deep sapphire colored eyes stole glances but he couldn't help but stop. "Crewman, wait for me in the corridor. I have something I have to attend to before we go," the Captain said abruptly. The young man turned and looked at him before nodding his head. "Aye Sir, I'll be waiting for you," he said giving him a salute before leaving the Jedi alone. When he was out of eyesight, Mark turned his eyes turned Alexandra and his feet moved swiftly towards his purpose.

Moving closer with each step the Jedi Master soon found his arms wrapping around her waist, pulling the fighter pilot closer to him and his lips pressing against hers. Not an action one would expect from a Jedi Master or a Captain for that matter but the man found a sort of new life within him when the woman he found on Lujo was around him.

"Hello there," he said with hastened breath as their lips parted.

Mark/Shrike SquadronGalactica
Alexandra had purposely placed herself to be intercepted by the Jedi Master just behind a stash of piled up crates. The relative privacy it gave them let the Lieutenant kiss her partner passionately, but ever so briefly. They were still in a very public place, and two Alliance officers to boot, though in different branches; he Navy and her Starfighter Corps.

"Well hello there yourself, handsome. I was hoping I'd catch you before your meeting. I've got CAP duty so I can't delay much longer, but I just wanted to see you... . I've missed you," Alex voiced sincerely, tenderly placing her hand over his heart as she gazed into his gentle and caring eyes. An annoucement came over the hangar comm far too soon interrupting their visitation. It was the two minute warning for Shrike Squadron's scheduled launch. 
"I gotta go, Mark. Good luck, and may the Force be with you," Alexandra smiled, then left him with a kiss to remember her by. Stepping back, the long-legged brunette gave the Captain a two finger salute, then turned and jogged over to her ship, scaling the ladder to the cockpit lithely with practiced ease. It was back to businss for her, though she relished in the fact that her lips still tingled and tasted of him.
After finishing her pre-flight, Alleycat called in her status. "Shrike Two green to go."

"I missed you too Alexandra, I wouldn't have let you go without at least saying hello," he said with a smile. It was a shame that there little meeting would not last long, she was on duty to make sure the ship was safe while the meeting got underway. The Jedi Master might have tried to get her out of it with his pull as a Captain but the starfighter corp would need one of their best pilots, even with such a small assignment just in case. He would just need to make sure that they saw one another after it was all said and done.

Hearing the announcement over the loud speakers he let out a little sigh. It was time for them to go there separate ways. "May the Force be with you, Alex. I'll be here when you get back," he told her with a wink after their kiss goodbye. Watching her go he let out another sigh and then turned about in his spot, the man found the crew man back in the hall and let him lead him down the hall to the meeting room. Walking in he found himself a seat and waited for the meeting to begin.

Another meeting.  Xan had only just come back from the journey he had been on for so long.  Nothing, it seemed, changed even with time.  The last large gathering he had attended was a meeting of the minds with Jedi far superior to him.  Now here he was, on an Alliance ship, attending yet another meeting of the minds, with Jedi far superior to him.  Be calm, Xan...  A Jedi only acts when he is calm, when he is one with the Force.  Taking a breath, Xan forced himself to listen to his inner voice.  It was difficult.

Walking into the conference room aboard the Galactica, Xan glanced around at his surroundings.  The room was near empty, in terms of those he thought mattered in a meeting such as this.  There were only two other Jedi in the room; one notable immediately by reputation, and one whom he'd not seen before.  Giving a small but respectful bow toward Master Starkiller, Xan took a seat near the back.  The idea of making a council suited him, it was traditional, but his voice would be a meager addition to a topic of such importance.  A padawan, in Xan's point of view, still ranked higher than any military official when matters of the Jedi were concerned; but that's where their rank and importance ended.  All he could do was hope that those wiser than he would make the right decision.

As he walked along he rubbed his hands down the walls, as if sensing all the tiny imperfections in the bulkheads and interpreting them into words in his mind. Eventually he found the conference room and stepped inside, he saw the Admiral who was seated already and gave him a polite nod and half bow. "Admiral, always good to see you." He greeted him and gave everyone else a polite nod with a soft smile. He was wearing a white and red tunic with a 3 square pattern of white set in the red on the left shoulder. The sleeves ended in wide openings like a robe. It was cinched together at his waist with a yellow sash and his hips were flanked by light black armor with yellow trim. Grey pants and brown shoes rounded out the wardrobe. Since coming back to the jedi he'd grown out of his Warden outfit that he'd used while hunting for Ciara. He found a chair to take a seat in and slid down softly.

Lacing his fingers together ontop of the conference table he closed his eyes for a moment for a brief meditation period before they began.

Jedi Master Skaara stood inside the aging shuttle as his trusty old piloting droid set it down inside the 'Galactica', with the skill of an experienced pilot. The droid had been with him, for just as long as he could recall, and had even come as far as bailing him out on more then one occasion. Droids obviously could not outlast the likes of him, so naturally the droid had gone through a series of rebuild and modifications over the years to keep it in working order and up to specs with its potential competitors.

A thin smile graced his features as the loading ramp extended and lowered itself to the floor inside the hangar. Having declared his flight path as well as expected arrival at least had meant a smoother approach to the capital ship where the meeting would take place. Normally he did however prefer to appear unannounced unless it was proper official business. Turning his head: "DJ, power her down, but keep her running light in case we need to leave urgently." not that he really expected that to really be a case, but it had however become a routine, a routine he was not about to change.

Suffice to say, it had however been some time since he had last truly been inside a capital ship. These days they had more or less lost their appeal to him, unlike his younger and earlier days. He did however manage to feel that he was not the only one that had already arrived for the meeting, and felt the others that were already in the room waiting for the rest of them to arrive. But rather then asking for directions he allowed his own conscience to slip down and immerse itself in the white current, allowing the force to freely and fully guide him where it needed and wanted. He slowly set into a steady walking pace toward the meeting room.

For others the first chance occurrence with the white current, and willingly immersing yourself in it could be a rather scary experience at first. But it was a feat he had grown so accustomed to as part of his transformation that its state nearly rose to the levels of a meditation. Being united with the very core, the very essence of life was both frightening as it was refreshing and enlightening at that. But he allowed it to guide and direct him throughout the expanse of the ship. His eyes closed, but his mind sharp as always, feeling every living soul on the ship and navigating around them as he made his way through the ship.

Eventually he allowed himself to recover, and emerge from the current, enlightening and refreshed. He was standing in front of a door, and slowly allowed his hand to pass the panel and allowed the door to retract into the wall and thus allowing him access. Walking inside he took up a position close to the door and allowed himself to lead back against the wall. He had no need for, nor required a seat and would rather yield one, in case other thought they deserved it more.

The old Jedi was wearing simple, but fashionable clothes. Not ostentatious, but made with a level of craftsmanship and a choice of material that ensured their sturdiness and quality. The style practical as well as functional, borrowing a few features of the Jedi robes, but otherwise not really looking a like lot the more traditional garbs otherwise worn by the order. Artuil reserved the official "uniform" for truly official and ceremonial matters, considering they were generally a dead giveaway if people knew what they were in fact looking for.

He did however greet present in the room by name rather then merely a nod of the head. It wasn't that often that they would be, or were able to gather all the Jedi at one specific place in time and space for a singular collective assignment. More often then not they were all busy at various places of the galaxy at any given time, and some working undercover, and thus making it hard as well as impractical for them all to meet on a regular basis. But resting back against the wall he waited as others would hopefully start pouring in and the meeting could start...

The Stormcaller slowly came alongside the Alliance capital ship Galactica, the much smaller gunship extending her mooring lines and transfer tube from her airlock. The two ships made contact and soon the gunship was firmly attached to the side of the much larger destroyer, with Dorsek and his daughter waiting to come aboard for the meeting of the Jedi.

"How many are going to be there, dad?"

Dorsek shrugged.

"Dunno kiddo, no matter how many there are this should be entertaining to say the least."

The light above the airlock immediately aft of the bridge went from red to green, signalling a solid seal, and the door opened.

"Kenobi," Dorsek called out to the AI that ran the ship, "You're in charge 'til we get back."

"Aren't I always?" The computer quipped, and Dorsek simply shook his head.

"Let's go, Syren. Don't want to keep anybody waiting."

The two Jedi took the transfer tube to the Galactica, where two marines were already waiting at the other end of the airlock. Dorsek was clad in his usual garb of worn special forces jacket, dark blue pants, beat up boots, and a simple black shirt. His daughter was dressed more along the lines of a Jedi, with small hints here and there to her own more interesting life. The now twenty-year old girl had been through her own share of adventure and had her own triumphs and hardships. Sooner or later, she was going to have to face the Knight trials herself, a thought that made Dorsek shiver just a tiny bit. He pushed the thought from his mind as they stepped onto the Galactica.

"Major, we are ordered to escort you to the conference room."

Dorsek nodded to the two marines, unphased by their choice to call him by his former rank. He had served in the Galactic Alliance, many years before, and his jacket still bore his Major's bars and unit insignia. Even though he was a Jedi now, Dorsek felt it was imperative to hold onto the ties to his past. His life before this is what made him who he was, and he wasn't about to forget that.

They were escorted through the labyrinthine maze of corridors towards the meeting room, finally ending at the quickly filling conference room. Some familiar faces were already present, and some Dorsek didn't quite recognize. He stepped into the room and noticed Master Skaara off to one side, heading off in that direction as Syren went to find a place to sit on her own.

"Good day, Master Skaara. It's been a while."

Antares dropped out of hyperspace and banked over his custom ETA-2 Light Interceptor, it was custom because it was slightly larger than the usual models as he had added a class 1 hyperdrive from an aging X-Wing that he used to pilot. He turned the nose of the fighter towards where the Galactica was stationed near a small moon near the second planet in the system. He had been out in the outer rim territories working with some of the people out there that he knew, it wasn't exactly Jedi work but it felt good to be able to do something constructive rather that destructive, he had sent a message to his young apprentice Jela Starfire to join him at this gathering. He mused that if he was going to have to sit through and suffer through more boring talk about an possible Council then he was going to ensure that his apprentice suffered with him, it was petty but he was fine with that given all that was going to take place was talking.

He was not surprised when he was intercepted by a squad of fighters on combat patrol, obviously Adama was ensuring security and he had most likely appeared on their scope as soon as he dropped out of hyperspace.

CAP Commander: Unidentified Fighter, this is Alpha Leader. Please identify yourself

Antares: This is Jedi Knight Antares Marclonus, authentication code Baker, 1, 5, 5 Alpha

CAP Commander: Your code clearance is confirmed, welcome Master Jedi, our orders are to escort you to the Galactica, you are cleared to land in hanger bay 2 Sir

Antares: No need for the escort Commander, return to your patrol. I know the way

CAP Commander: Thank you Sir, may the force be with you

Antare: And with you as well Commander.

Antares eased his ship into the flight pattern around the Alliance Flagship and he did admire that ship, she was beautiful and deadly all at the same time. There was something about the Galactica that spoke of its history and proud traditions, one could almost look at the ship and see the stern and commanding presence of the man who was master of this vessel Admiral Bill Adama.

He moved his ship easily through and landed in one of the two vast hangers that the ship had, immediately his ship was chalked into place and his canopy opened. He climbed out and politely nodded to the men that started to service his fighter that he would like the oil checked, they laughed and told him that the marine guard at the turbo elevator would escort him to the conference, he thanked them again and made his way there.

-Conference Room-

Antares entered the Conference Room and saw already there was a large number of Jedi already assembled, he didn't recognise many of them but he did see Master Starkiller and that gave him some relief at least he would know someone here. He had never really made it his business to get to know many in the order as usually he was always out there getting the work of the Order done. He approached Master Starkiller and bowed slightly as was proper for a Knight meeting a Master.

"Master Starkiller, always good to see you. I was wondering if you would attend this gathering, given your past history with the previous Council Master.

Mark nodded acknowledging the young Jedi (Xan) at the table as well as the Admiral who'd help organize the meeting. Mark couldn't say he was a big fan of these meetings, a bunch of people brought together to argue out issues from across the table. All talk and very little action. Mark preferred action to words and had for quite a while now. The more that got down the closer they would all come to tossing off the yoke off oppression that the Sith Imperium had put on the galaxy and that this new Empire seemed to want to sustain.

Before his thoughts could go much further on the subject, he was interrupted by a familiar presence followed by an even more familiar voice. "Ah.. Antares," he said rising to his feet before offering a hand in a hand shake. "It's good to see you here. I honestly didn't suspect you would show up either. As much of an issue I had with the old council I though you would be riding in the same boat that I had. Me though, being a Jedi Master I'm pretty much required to be here. I mean, what would they do without me?" he asked mostly in jest.

Jemma and Calloway stood at either side of the entrance to the door to the conference room.  What a waste of time.  Thought Jemma as she stood there, alert to stop any disruptions into the meeting.  If any room does *not* need protection its a room full of powerful Jedi.  She glanced at each entering person as they went, most were in robes that obviously denoted their place in the order and most carried lightsabers on their hips.  They think they're so much better than everyone else, just because they have these abilities.  Running around roughshod across the galaxy while the rest of the 'little people' get bowled over in the crossfire.  Jedi... Sith... they're all the same... arrogant ideologues who think that by the power of their special abilities alone they have the right to decide the fate of worlds.

And yet she stood, not letting a lick of her disgust for the Order show on her face, though with the number of Jedi around, perhaps someone might sense it.  Hopefully not.

The teenage Padawan could hardly refuse her master's request that she sit in on the meeting.  With her she carried a datapad so she could take notes on the proceedings, she was bound and determined to make this a learning experience.  She hadn't yet been on the Galactica, so it took her a little while to find her way and she knew if she didn't hurry she'd be late.  And that would be quite embarrassing.  Fortunately personnel seemed to know an influx of unfamiliar visitors would be coming and she was able to find people to give her directions twice when she got turned around.

Finally she reached the door, and she checked to make sure her robes were straight before she went inside.  Yep, everything straight.  And she started to walk inside.
"Hold on there," said the cyborg at the door.  "This is a restricted area.  Shouldn't you be in school or something, young lady?"
"I'm sorry about the confusion, but I am a Jedi.  Padawan Jela Starfire, my Master told me to come."
Jemma raised an eyebrow.  "Aren't you a little short for a Jedi?"  However she did seem to spot the lightsaber.
"I could call him if you like, and we could get this all sorted out.  His name is Antares Marclonus."
"I... oh I think I saw you on Tatooine.  Didn't recognize you without the cloud of dust from exploded buildings.  Sorry for the inconvenience, ma'am."

Jela was relieved as she stepped inside, only to realize she had been hurrying for nothing, her chronometer was off and she had not been running as late as she thought.  She looked around, at a sea of unfamiliar faces, politely nodding and smiling at each of them.  She'd never been around so many Jedi in her life.  She and her late Master had mostly kept to themselves in contemplation and meditation.  And even since she'd joined up with Antares after her Master's passing... they'd spent most of their time either on mission or training on Naboo.  Finally she spotted a pair of familiar faces.  She headed in the direction of Mark and Antares.  "Master Starkiller, Antares... how nice to see you both.  I was beginning to worry I wouldn't make it.  Some days I hate being a teenager and therefore never being taken seriously."

Adrianna had been flying in from Y'Sad seeing that she'd had some personal business to sort out.  The Galactica was not a long nor a short journey per se; however she still had time to practice her skills in the hanger bay.  No matter her age, she felt there was always right to train and keep herself in shape. Especially after the amount of children she'd had over the years. She laughed at the thought and the amount of flack she'd received.  Her thoughts were on her training and meditation until she received the beacon from the cockpit that My Mahalla was nearing the airspace of the Galactica.  Disrobing and making her way into the refresher, Adrianna Fiore showered and freshened up for the meeting.  

"Galactica, this is Master Fiore of My Mahalla requesting permission to land." She waited patiently for a reply.  "Master Fiore you have permission to land."  Upon requesting and receiving landing clearance upon the Galactica, the Jedi Master flew her modified YT-1300 freighter into the docking back and landed. As the hissing of the thrusters could be heard, she picked up her black, red and gray Jedi robes and slid them on. The landing ramp lowered and she stepped down with the grace of the Princess that she was. Already she knew the way to the briefing room, she she quickly made her way there.  There was a reason they came there and there was no time to waste on anything but pleasantries.  As she entered the conference room she saw many people she already knew. Granted she did not know them all. The smile that so many of them knew graced her face.  "Dorsek, Antares, Mark, it's good to see you all here."  Sliding her robes underneath her legs, she took her seat eagerly, yet patiently waiting for the meeting to begin.

"Well now isn't this a surprise. Hello Jela, it's good to see you're well," he said with a smile as the teenager made her way into the hall and made mention of how no one took her seriously. "The door guards give you a tough time? Don't worry about them, we all had to go through it at one time or another and their just doing their job, though... the one's feelings on us gives me a bit of worry. Physically she might not be showing it but she has a particular dislike for us, as far as I can tell through the Force," he said with a smile. Sometimes being able to sense another's feelings was all one really needed.

He didn't say much more concerning their Alliance soldiers, they would have their opinions after all even if he didn't agree with them, or in this case was the subject of them. However he noticed Adrianna walk into the conference room and greeted him among others before sitting down. "Nice to see you as well, Adrianna. I hope you are well," he said before he showed Jela and Antares to a couple seats next to his. They might as well get comfortable as he imagined the meeting would not be held off for much longer.

The Meeting Begins

___


The gathering was well filled and Shaun felt the time to begin was upon them.  Without Rank or Title, the Cinnagarian Representative would begin the meeting.  The dark robed Jedi stood up and smiled warmly to the congregation that was assembled.

"Ladies and Gentlemen of the Alliance.  Jedi and Servicemen.  I bid you welcome again to this fine ship in the name of Peace and Cooperation.  My name is Jay Shaun, and I will be introducing our Gathering today.  Any late-comers are welcome to find a seat and participate as they see fit.  Again, thank you for your attendance and your patience."

He continued,

"To begin, I would like to introduce to this fine Gathering the proposition of forming a 'Jedi Council of the Alliance'.  And I declare this topic now 'Open'."

A pause,

"The merits, duties, and responsibilities of which...  Will be discussed at length following a simple declaration vote by this Gathering."

A pause,

"It shall be here noted that all Servicemen not associated with the rank and file of the Jedi are asked to remain respectably silent for the duration of this meeting.  You may observe at your leisure or leave the room at this time."

A long pause was given for those wishing to remove themselves or remain respectably silent,

"Thank you.  Now.  All in favor of forming a 'Jedi Council of the Alliance'.  Please raise your right-most hand, state the words 'Aye' in favor, and remain in this room."

Another pause,

"All those Against this proposition.  ...May take their leave of the room at this time.  ...Or you may stay and remain silent for the duration of this meeting.  Thank you for your participation.  Fear not.  Only those men and women who choose to participate in the creation of this Council, ...and those that choose to join its ranks hereafter, shall be held responsible to it's merits, duties, creeds, codes, and responsibilities.  And unto none other shall its gifts and burdens fall."

The last pause was given.

 "Remain or leave at your discretion.  All here gathered Jedi, please make your vote at this time."

Shaun remained standing and raised his hand.  Voicing the word 'Aye' in favor of forming a Council.  Anxious to see whom else would stay and participate.

Antares stood up, he wondered who this Jedi was let alone the presumption he had for starting the meeting when there were other Masters who by rights would be to call the meeting to order. He was not a fan of having a Jedi Council but there was a time and a place to do things and calling for a vote on a matter before even having the process of discussion was done by his understanding unwise and entirely too rushed. There was a need to share ideas and to sculpt not just a Jedi Council but to actually garner support for such a motion before it even began less you found it on unsteady ground essentially weakening the Council from the start.

"I would thank the Jedi Knight for bringing the meeting to order however, I think it is entirely too early to be calling a vote when people have not yet had the chance to voice an opinion on the subject. We still have time to discuss the matter and develop ideas before a vote is even needed. There is no need to rush such proceeedings indeed I believe such haste to be unwise. We need to build a new idea of what the Council should be and what its mandates are before we even decide on establishing it, the galaxy has changed and we need to understand those changes before we can craft the new."

Antares looked at Master Starkiller and stood back realizing his mistake in speaking before the Master had his chance to have his say, it was not a breech of protocol but it was slightly poor manners and he nodded his head at Mark in a slight apology.

"We are men of action Commander. The talking will be done by the participates after the ney-sayers have left the room or consolidated themselves to silence."

He paused to make perfect eye-contact,

"This is not a debate nor a tea-time conversation. This is perhaps the single most important meeting the Jedi of the Alliance may ever have. Those who oppose it may do so in silence or in violence. We will see no 'filibustering' here."

He moved his eyes around the room to match as many as would meet his,

 "Rest assured. The discussion will follow the vote. But it will be done by those hoping to help build this Council Proposition. Not by those allied forces hoping to destroy it."

Shaun returned his attention to Jedi Knight and Alliance Commander Marclonus,

"...Now.  Do I have your permission to continue Marclonus.  Or do I need to ask Starkiller instead?"
