Orion: Brothers and Sisters. Orion: I know that some of you have come under my service from the command of Commanders Alula and Maia, and our revered ruler, High-Queen Seren. Some of you are new, new to war, new to conquest. Orion: And I am aware that some of you may have doubts about me. I will not deny that I do not possess the same experience as some of you. Orion: Do not mistake my inexperience for vulnerability. Orion: The High-Queen has tasked not just me, but all of us, with the most noble and honored role any Novescalan could have. We are to conquer a world and pull it from the darkness and into the light of our Empire. Orion: I will do everything that is in my power to ensure that we do not fail, to make certain that we do not disgrace our High-Queen with anything less than success. Orion: But I am only one man. To conquer we need an army. I need you. Orion: Will you allow me the honor to serve as your Commander?
Crowd: *Incoherent Cheers*
Orion: Glory to Novescala!
Crowd: Glory to Novescala!

When we get back to Orion: Orion> Reprimand THETA for calling an assembly without your knowledge or permission. THETA> "The High Queen left instructions that you are to be given certain tests if the opportunity arises. This was one of them." Orion> You are supposed to have full authority over THETA, so you could override those instructions, or ask what the other tests are.
The Majessstic One> Be eating crumpetss with honey.
