|SPOCK: "Good morning. Two months ago a Federation starship monitored an explosion on the Klingon moon Praxis. We believer it was caused by over-mining and insufficient safety precautions. The moon's decimation means deadly pollution of their ozone. They will have depleted their supply of oxygen in approximately 50 Earth years. Due to their enormous military budget, the Klingon economy does not have the resources with which to combat this catastrophe. Last month, at the behest of the Vulcan Ambassador, I opened a dialogue with Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council. He proposes to commence negotiations at once. The dismantling of our space stations and starbases along the Neutral Zone -- an end to almost 70 years of unremitting hostility which the Klingons can no longer afford... it is imperative that we act now to support the Gorkon initiative, lest more conservative elements persuade his empire that it is better to attempt a military solution and die fighting.|
