Title: The Meeting Station of the Goa'uld

 Set deep into the darkest void of uncharted space, a new immense station slowly took shape to serve the new order of the Goa'uld. Protected by a ring of dangerous asteroids, with the navigation codes given to only a chosen few. It that was left as Allienna's engineers finished off the exterior, was internal fitments and the defensive weapons, security suites that would further enhance its viability.

 The station has docking facilities for eight Hat'aks and twenty smaller ships such as Al-Kesh and the Tel'tak transports.

The Hatak of the crocodile god emerged from hyperspace near the station that was now seemingly protected by asteroids. The building seemed to be at the level Allienna had spoken of so things seemed to be going as planned.

Sobek prepared to send a message as he looked over the sensor details making sure all things seemed in order. Allienna had certainly begun putting her resources to good use though he was surprised that she would choose to build this station for the summit as she had formerly seemed less interested at least less so then Khnum had been.

"This is lord Sobek I have come to assist with production" he said deciding to let the current builders know he had arrived

The stations location was acceptable for now though Sobek expected no less. He did feel the need to check the defensive systems as soon as possible however not wanting to take unnecessary chances.

He wondered if they would end up having uninvited guests no doubt the possibility of information of this summit leaking was a possibility though of course the gods would be prepared for such an event.
He hoped that with this summit his brothers and sisters could once again unite and fight back against the growing darkness that had slowly been sweeping across the galaxy.

 Emerging out of hyper space, the monstrous form of the Ceffylau appeared right behind Sobek's Hat'ak casting a gloomy shadow over it. "Ah, it seems we've arrived in good time Grundel, Sobek is with us."

 "He never seems to waste an opportunity does he? Fortunately for him he has stopped short of the asteroid field." The commander nodded sagely. One other had tried to breach the defenses just a month ago and paid dearly for it.

 Bringing up the communication interface, Allienna was on screen. "Your timing is impeccable as always Sobek. Follow my lead, mark the passage well for if you should not, well I need not say more."

 Grundel moved the Ceffylau ahead of Sobek's ship, then let the automated navigation module take over. They were soon docking on one of the large rings built for that purpose. A soft 'thunk' was heard through the ship when the seals were locked.

Sobek did not need to wait long before the large vessel that was Allienna's flagship arrived behind them. Sobek knew he needed to say nothing as the messages came through and the vessel moved to take the lead offering to lead them through the asteroid field.

"Follow her vessel as suggested" he said amused by her attempt at sounding like she would have compassion for him if something went wrong

"Once we arrive dock with the station as planned I will then let Allienna decide if she would like to meet me here or on the station" he said wondering if it would be wise to allow his forces to enter the station or if he should enter it alone

The invitation had come to the station to all the most powerful Goa'uld of the new dynasty, as officially the Goa'uld empire had collapsed and yet there had been no new re-foundation. The planet's conquest Parvash, had been bloody, but eventually the world had been conquered and those who were opposed to the control of Achaman, wiped out permanently. The news had reached all the Goa'uld in the galaxy, so that now it was expected that the Goa'uld could even demand uplifting and decision-making positions. But when a hyperspace window opened before the space station built by Alienna, there appeared both Ha'tak ships of the Goa'uld but rather only that of Achaman same. In pel'tak, the Goa'uld dressed in a long tunic style guanches waiting to be able to board.

"My lord, the final destination station, we send the signal and safety codes!" Amqor exclaimed, turning to his master. Achaman nodded without saying a word while the signal arrived in the station itself. a call back Ha'tak came in and it was only then that Achaman decided to replicate first.

"I am the powerful Achaman, I was invited to this summit, lower shields for transport through the rings right now!" He ordered in a firm voice. the other end of the station, Jaffa belonging to Sobek and Alienna immediately dropped their shields allowing transportation bordo.Ad waiting two Crocodile Guards. Now lacked Khnum, the ruler of Khenem that still would come very soon.

The station was now on sight and the ship began to slow down, leaving the pilot the time to admire it.
A ringed beast, probably ten times the size of the queen's underground palace at home, he was in complete awe. If it wouldn't have been a sacrilege, he would've said that the... thing was even greater than anything his queen had built at home. He finally turned towards her.
"We're here".

Herennia, the lo'taur, was giving the last touches to her queen's half-updo. Satisfied, she stopped her, covered the back of her hair with a palla while leaving the front untouched, and she went on the bridge. The pilot didn't speak goa'uld, he had no idea of what to say.

"Turn on the communication channels" she said to him. Finally, she began to speak in the old language, without hiding her characteristic accent.
"I am Queen Mefitis, my presence here was desired. Requesting permission to land".

She noticed on the radar three more ships, all ha'taks, one of which dwarfed the other two. Ah, if this would've been in a year...

The sensors flagship of Khnum were probing the space around the space station when a new signal appeared on the viewer pel'tak. It was certainly another Goa'uld, convened for the occasion, but it Khnum had no knowledge and this could be a problem. Khnum did not like not knowing things or surprises, and this was not a pleasant thing. Positioned at the helm and the ship's computer, Kel'dar watched the results of the sensors and analyzing although away from these ships, he realized that one of Ha'tak present, was slightly different shape and larger. At the same time, Khnum sat on the throne at the back of the console pel'tak surrounded by his First Prime Faris and a Jaffa who will know later.

"My lord, we are coming, send security codes to the station as soon as it came out of hyperspace!" He said the Jaffa turning to the Goa'uld.

"Run!" He replied the Goa'uld waiting for the journey ended before the big orbitale.Pochi station moments later a big flash and the flagship of Khnum reappeared in normal space going to support the Ha'tak Achaman the same. A message containing the codes flagship arrived aboard the space station, and only then khnum spoke.

"Orbital station, I am the Mighty God Khnum, my presence was requested, prepared to receive me with dignity!" He concluded by the sparkle in his eyes as pel'tak breathed a 'heavy air and waiting.

 Always the same, all of them trying to climb over one another, plus they were a full month early. Somewhere along the way the message had either been misread, or they simply wanted to get things done far earlier than anticipated. "You handle them Grundel, I'm going into the holo chamber to meet Sobek." Allienna pressed a secure coms directly to him. "Lord Sobek, on the eighteenth level there is a holo chamber, meet me there if you would." She then left her ship via the sealed passageway, walking directly down a long secured hallway, laser weapons automatically identified her, yet still they tracked her every move. They were located above, where wall met ceiling, every thirty feet.

 "Queen Meftis, Lords Khnum, Amqor and and Akaman; I am Grundel, first strike leader of Queen Allienna. I am sending you all the navigation data for the asteroid field, do not under any circumstances try to make your way without it. Once you are clear of the field, dock on the appropriate docking platforms. I will say this but once, do not attempt to use the rings of your ships to gain entry to the station. Once docked there is a sealed passageway for which you enter. When inside, proceed to level nine via the transporters (elevators). I will also remind you that you all have come one month early, the station is not yet complete on the interior, you will find conditions quite spartan. Grundel out."

The words of Grundel were an insult to the ears of all the Goa'uld arrive at the station, but did not want khnum ill disposed towards the most powerful Goa'uld at the time. Took a far-reaching and using more conciliatory tone, he made reopen the channel with the station.

"We were called and came, in my case will execute what you have just said, look forward to the moment to be able to arrive in the presence of Alienna queen!" He concluded hoping the tone when he had calmed the warrior of Alienna.

"I will go alone but have my engineers standing by" he said moving into the station

He made his way through the station towards the eighteenth level which was where the room Allienna wished to meet him in had been placed. Stepping in his black and light blue robe with bits of red swaying as the red glowing eyes along with the rest of his helmet locked with the appearance of Allienna in the room.

"Greetings queen Allienna" he said greeting the daughter and successor of Morrigan

"It would seem many of our own kind were also eager to arrive early" he said stepping into the room quietly

"I have engineers willing to be sent in to assist you with the finishing touches" he said testing to see how much of his help Allienna would accept

"I trust you have some points you wish to make" he said stopping next to Allienna and waiting for her to speak

As the communication ended, the pilot turned towards Mefitis, visibly asking an explanation.
The queen switched to the old tongue. "We came a month early". Sobek owed her an explanation.
"Do we go back home?"
"No. She sent the route for the station. Follow the waypoints and once out of the field dock with it" she said pointing on the displayed map.

The pilot obliged and swiftly but surely the ship made its way through the asteroids. Throughout the fifteen minutes that they took to reach the other side, the crew stood in awe looking at both the massive station in front of them and the rocks surrounding their ship. Nothing out of the ordinary for the servants of the other "gods" but for a civilization that had just left its homeworld it was amazing, and there was so much more to see and to tell to their families.

Finally, the ship docked and the small crew poured out. Within a few moments, Mefitis took the lead, being the only one who had the barest idea of where to go. She reached the elevators and made her way to the ninth level.

<Level 18 Holo room>

 While she waited, Ali paced up and down for some time, inspecting what had already be accomplished in such a short time, with which she was more than pleased. When Sobek did finally arrive she greeted him cordially as one ruler to another. "I greet you fair evening Lord Sobek. Do you like what you see so far?" She was dressed now in the black armor of her guard, the only difference being the golden embossed Leopard on her breast plate and that she was helmetless, her long golden locks flowing freely down her back to the waist.

 "They have indeed but perhaps it suits our purpose, we can put many hands to work under our direction to achieve our goals earlier. As for what are my desires to see this come to fruition, look around you Sobek, you can see a style that is far in advance to that of anything our kind has ever created before."

Another call from dear old Khnum, that wiley old fox. "Thus of course you were summoned Lord Khnum, though another month was meant to pass before your arrival. It is of no consequence though. Dock your ship as per the instructions then proceed to level nine, my First Commander Grundel will meet you there."

< Level 9, meeting Chamber>

 Twenty seven black armored guards lined the halls where the Goa'uld would pass, twenty seven, one for each world under Allienna's dominion, all of them female. Their armor shone brightly, staff weapons held at the general salute. At their head by the door to the chamber, Grundel waited, hands behind her back. Long braids of her red hair signified her rank, just one below the Queen. She was dressed in the traditional warrior garb of her clan, brown suede even to the boots. "I bid you welcome Queen  Mefitis, if you would make yourself comfortable within." The meeting chamber was one of only a few areas that had been completed, thirty gilded chairs with deep maroon seats and backs were arrayed around a huge oval dark oaken table, quite out of place here in deep space. Servants stood respectfully behind each chair awaiting to serve. Each on of them a specially trained Jaffa in diplomacy and the art of conversation.

The arrival of Khnum the space station built by Alienna, could become a diplomatic incident, not only because the indications received were definitely wrong, but also because of Alienna, and the Khenem sir, there was clear competition for the prestige of the same goa 'uld. Khnum had abandoned his ship through a tel'tak led by its Lo'taur. the tel'tak is docked Khnum and immediately headed for the level 18 where in the meantime Sobek had met with Sobek, but before the Goa'uld could even get close, two Jaffa warriors stopped him.

"Jaffa announced the arrival of the Lord Khnum or accompany me on your princess!" He exclaimed the System Lords doing flambé his eyes.

Mefitis entered the room, followed by four bull-headed jaffas and her lo'taur, her head bowed lowly and humbly.
The darkness and blandness of the half-finished passageways was replaced with a place unlike anything she saw; a massive room (or at least it felt so), with a massive table in its middle with enough spots to accomodate two or three dozens of men and women. The biggest conference room at home could barely contain five or six people. "Different necessities", she thought.

But what was really alien was the perception of Allienna's civilization that Mefitis could grasp.
Three dozens of jaffa, all women. And while Mefitis wore a silk dress over a tunic of the same fabric, she saw Grundel in front of her wearing military attire, not of any precious material but of simple leather. She felt small, an incarnation of form in front of an incarnation of functionality.
This alone spoke more than an entire essay: Tribom had a civilization with a rotting military tradition, but these people were militarized to the bone. They lived for conquest, she realized.
But why a matriarchy?
She knew of no goa'uld from the past who ever understood the gender roles of the tau'ri, they simply adopted them because they appeared to work. Why was this different?

She wiped her mind clear, the less questions she asked herself, the better. She finally took a seat, followed by her lo'taur. The jaffas remained close.
"A pleasure to meet you, Lady Grundel". There was a polite smile on her face. "Are the others on their ways?"".

OOC: It's a small thing, but it is Mefitis, not Meftis. I had the impression you thought I misspelled it.

Achaman had boarded the train Goa'uld followed by four Tibicenas Guards, all with the closed helmet of the head depicting a hellish dog growl evident. Next to the Goa'uld, also his Lo'taur followed him like a shadow as he walked directly to the level indicated by their meeting. Crossing the external level, the Goa'uld was fascinated by the architecture so open on the outside of the outer ring and the presence of the sun Jaffa women.

"A matriarchy the form chosen by the heir of Morrrigan queen, had fully expected, they are as dangerous as a Jaffa man and probably more, a bit like the Bast Guards a faithful time Lady Bastet and now faithful to how many were left to Khnum! " He exclaimed the lo'taur continuing to follow his master.

"Exactly, they are a voluntary choice of Alienna, but we need not worry at this time, we were invited by alienna same, we have nothing to worry about, rather I heard that participate in a new Goa'uld, recently emerged, a queen Mefitis called, I am curious to know for centuries and millennia, never heard of it in no time! "replied Achaman arriving finally in the great hall where, Sobek and two women, talking quietly. Grundel immediately noticed.

< Level 9, meeting Chamber>

"My Lady Mefitis yes indeed as we speak other Lords are assembling. There may well be some confusion within the station for the next while as with its partially finished status, navigating around the labyrinth of passages can be daunting the first time here." One would expect someone wearing the Lord's tattoo to simply be a Jaffa, not so with the Leopard clan where ninety percent of Allienna's army were drawn from; they wore it willingly and proudly, Grundel having had hers since she was a girl of fourteen. Both her and Allienna as children grew up together, their symbiotes from the same brood of Morrigan's. "A moment please." Tapping again on her wrist device brought up a three dimensional hologram that appeared to sit on the palm of her hand. Just as a human from Earth would swipe a cellphone screen, Grundel did much the same until she found those she was looking for.

 Speaking directly to the Hologram, produced an announcement through hidden relay speakers across the station. "Lord Khnum, Lord Achaman, would you please proceed to level nine, our 'Queen' will meet with you there as soon as possible." Returning her gaze to Mefitis she said with a rather pleased tone. "They should not be long now. Please my Lady, be seated, ask your steward for anything you wish for." By steward of course, she was referring to the Jaffa standing behind each chair. There was the symbol of each Lord carved in green jade at each place mark.

Sobek had to admit it was a very interesting station he realized now with Ra gone some such as Allienna were free to explore a variety of new designs and to a certain extent he enjoyed it but the lack of traditional Goa'uld design did make him feel uneasy.

"I will provide constructors to assist with continuing the remaining interior and my engineers will assist with informing me of anything I need to be alerted to" said Sobek knowing that the station would have to be further examined

"I will though be seeing to it that some of our hieroglyphs are added to some of the interior levels" he said hoping she would not argue it

"Am I to presume that rooms will be granted to us all once the station is completed?" He asked needing to plan on what to bring aboard the station

"Perhaps it is almost time that I greeted the others personally" he said eager to greet the others now that they were fast arriving

"It is untraditional to have so many Jaffa aboard a summit Station" he commented knowing that both Allienna and the others had brought many aboard

As Grundel spoke, Mefitis casually noticed a man wearing armor on the hall's doorstep.
"We will not have to wait much longer". She turned her gaze from Grundel to the man behind her.

Her mind went to work to recognize the man at the doorstep. She already saw Sobek's face at home listening to the message that he sent her, while Khnum was someone she passingly knew from the days of her rule on the First World. Millenia had passed but the goa'uld didn't change, and even changing his vessel Khnum was not the kind of goa'uld to go around in armour at a relatively formal event. Achamàn was a name she had never heard of, so, going by the "if it is not soup, it is soaked bread" maxim of her world, she hailed the man. "I bid you welcome, Lord Achamàn", her smile unnoticeably false and yet impeccable as usual.
Formalities first, then the treat. "There's likely no roasted pork strips, so order something that isn't for sheep herders" she snickered inside.

Both Goa'uld came as required to level 9, where Mefitis was already present. Achaman was the first to get there and go getting the greeting the queen did not know.

"Kre'ee Queen Mefitis ... I am honored to meet you, we would have time to know better ...." but the words of the ruler of the planet Echeyde were blocked by the arrival of Khnum himself. With slight nod the System Lord greeted the approaching his ally.

"Achaman ... glad to see you in good health despite recent woes that we have all experienced especially you in the conquest of the planet Parvash .... I hope your favorite Jaffa is now healed in his wounds?" Khnum smiling ended as he turned toward the same Mefitis.

 "I would expect no less Sobek. We do have some traditions left after all do we not?" In her own mind, some of those traditions went back even further than when the Goa'uld first started colonising the galaxy with their own human captives. The symbiote her mother had given her had memories that spanned millions of years, right back to when they were first awoken by the El'Dari, in fact she was fairly confident that some of their DNA was mixed in with her hosts body, it was as if she could feel them not far away. "We shall meet them then, our workers can proceed as they will, we will not be disturbed."

 "Lords Khnum and Achaman, please be welcomed, find your place marked with your sigal, the Jaffa will attend to your every need." Grundel half bowed to each of them, then addressed the Queen Mefitis. "You would be surprised Lady Mefitis, order what you wish, it will be provided."

And so Sobek would provide what he could to assist with the construction of the station. Now though he would need to wait patiently and in the mean time he may as well meet with the others though it was strange it had been a long time since he himself had participated in a summit.

"Then let us greet them together" said Sobek moving to leave the room

<To Level 9 Meeting chamber>


<Level 9 Meeting chamber>

Sobek emerged from the doorway to the meeting chamber his light blue, black and red robe over his slightly blue tinged silver armour with his easily recognisable crocodile mask with the red glowing eyes that surveyed the room and its occupents.

The room was different to what he had been expecting with Allienna having chosen to go with a wooden table though he did approve of the chairs. Though the summit was still far from taking place all were emerging into the room and discussing amongst themselves it was a good sight to behold though he knew if the right words were not used all could go wrong very quickly.

"Greetings to you all" he said entering the room sending a look at Grindelwald to see if she would announce his entry into the room

Khnum, Achaman and Mefitis had all arrived and now he needed to find out if they could all work together. He approached His brother Khnum first glad to see he had made it though he was surprised that he had brought his enormous flagship to the station and had chosen to fly a Tel'tak in to dock.

"Lord Khnum it is a pleasure to see you have made it I trust things have gone well since our battles with the destroyers" he said knowing Khnum had the most experience other then himself

Next was Achaman who he had to admit in recent times had proven himself a loyal ally so far and had earned the crocodile gods trust for now. It would be interesting to hear what he desired to announce during the summit.

"Lord Achaman I hope things continue to improve in your domain" he said hoping Achaman was prepared to assist them in greater goals

Finally was Mefitis who he had not yet gotten the chance to know yet she had made a number of deals with him so far. He did not know yet what she hoped to gain by being here for he doubted she would want to risk open hostilities until she increased her fleet capacity of course he would keep such things between them and now was a time to rejoice that they were able to finally find the time to meet together.

"I am pleased you have decided to join me" said Sobek nodding at Mefitis

It was terrible that so many of their kind had chosen to not join them and so many had fallen and he wondered if the others were fully aware of just what had happened to their kind over the years he himself having been in isolation for quite awhile.
He would now accept questions though it was over all Allienna's turn to greet the others and discuss tings with them. Sobek himself moved over finding the crocodile symbol upon a chair he did not dare risk ordering any food or drink here but he did decide to look around the room more making sure no ugly surprises awaited them.

Level 9 Meeting chamber

Since Achaman had collaborated with Sobek, between the two arose a kind of strange understanding. In some ways the two Goa'uld resembled although both were aware that there could be no friendship between Goa'uld, but only convenience. Everything would have ended suddenly between them when the interests of one of the two would come to the detriment of the other, but for now Achaman did not want to think about it. After fixing the present, Achaman turned to each of them, not before he heard the voice of Alienna.

"Lord Sobek after our collaboration we have not had the opportunity to meet again, this meeting could improve relations between our two empires is not it?" He asked first to crocodile god without any emphasis knowing that Sobek himself wanted to focus attention on himself.

"You must be Mefitis ... it's a pleasure to meet you, for so many centuries I've never heard your name for this I had no way to inform me on how to make you pleasure!" He exclaimed taking the hand to Goa'uld queen and giving it a light kiss on the back.

The last Goa'uld who Achaman turned words, was Khnum.Tra the two Goa'uld would not have been necessary, but Achaman not wanting to be outdone, also addressed the ruler of Khenem planet.

"Glad to see you Lord Khnum, I learned that your First Prime rebelled because of the effect of the kiss of Aphrodite, I hope we can do something about it ..." he finished looking into Khnum eyes. The latter replied dryly.

"It 'already have everything under control, Rashaken was taken away by Queen Aphrodite and we have already made to clean the air conditioning!"

She nodded at the two goa'ulds' greetings, then she focused on the jaffa behind her.
She really didn't know what to order and what to expect. After all, how similar could the cuisines of two worlds on the other side of the galaxy could be?
She decided to wait for the others to order something.

As she waited, Sobek arrived and hailed Achamàn and Khnum, before turning his attentions to her.
"It was beginning to become lonely on my world"" she replied with a wide and near-genuine smile.
Her real reasons for later.

Eventually, Achamàn approached her and gave his shot at gallantry.
"The pleasure is mine" she replied coldly.
As she saw the goa'uld turning his attention towards Khnum, a part of her, or perhaps something else or even both, pushed her to look with disgust at the kissed hand before slightly rubbing it with the thumb of her other hand. She wanted to appreciate the gallant act but something in and even outside of her was disgusted by it. She finally realized that what she hated in the act was Achaman's excessive confidence for a first meeting. And while she told herself that it was no big deal, something else, something that she couldn't control, felt violated and kept screaming it at her.
She put her mind to rest and silenced that whiny voice inside.

Now, where was the patron?
And where were the others?
Were these all that remained of her kind?

 The sound of boots snapping to attention, hands slapping on weapons resonated throughout the chamber wherever Allienna went, Sobek would by all rights feel mightily chuffed about that except that the young Queen's guards had only eyes for her. The Black circle it was called, a full brigade of women chosen to guard the Queen, one which was fought over in some savage challenges, which often led to death. She pretended she had no knowledge of it, even tried to stop it once; she may as well tried to stop night changing to day. With her own armor glinting brightly under the lights, black as pitch, yet the gloss was like a mirror. When she arrived, Grundel bowed fully, then took her place behind Allienna as she came to the table. "Please, all of you be seated we have much to discuss while we can. I also offer my apologies that the signals may have been somehow confused; nothing that we cannot work around is it?"

 With those words, Allienna sat first, Grundel took up a chair beside her which might raise a few eyebrows until that was, they heard how things were being played out. "Since I know each and every one of you, I shall dispense with the platitudes for now. Before I begin, is there anything in particular that any of you wish to bring forward?"

Sobek was quite surprised to find Allienna so eager to begin he would had thought she would have wanted to appreciate the situation. Still he had to admit this was not and had never been planned as a social visit indeed the fate of their kind rested upon all of them now he just hoped they all realized that.

He seated himself upon the chair that Allienna had arranged for him going as far as placing his symbol upon it and he found it to be satisfactory for now. The first real question of what to discuss came out quick and blunt the crocodile god had planned for this discussion for some time but that did not make any of this easier.

Seated next to Allienna on the left end of the table he surveyed the Goa'uld that had made it this was what he had to work with and after all he had learned he was glad his helmet hid his unease. He decided that at least for the moment keeping secrets of their current situations was largely unnecessary and so he decided to say what he could.

"I believe Allienna that Reminding our fellow rulers of the galactic events that have lead to this meeting being necessary" said Sobek wanting to remind them of the former system lords failings to show what they themselves must improve upon

"Ra failed us all he grew weak and corrupted and pulled us down with him it was inevitable that he would finally be destroyed" said Sobek having no love for the former sun god

"It is good to remember that this allowed the traitor Anubis to return this infighting allowed our enemies to gain in power and allowed the Asgard to assist the Tau'ri with technological advancements without the agreed upon repercussions" he said disgusted by how things had been formerly managed

"If the eventual invasion of the Replicators was not bad enough without our ruler ship and guidance the galaxy was again threatened by the Ori crusade of which the Shol'va Ba'al having acquired a number of Anubis's improved technology gave the Tau'ri the perfect opportunity to spread their rebellious nature" Sobek hoped that had his fellow Goa'uld not only caught up but fully aware of what would happen if any thought they could rule this galaxy alone

"Make no mistake this galaxy remains in peril and what is left of our empire has until recently been collapsing for those of you who are unaware most recently we were forced to assist in yet another extra galactic invasion from the destroyers and it is obvious that all of these have but one thing in common" he said looking around the table at the faces of all that were listening to him

"The humans of the Tau'ri have been the cause of these invasions each and every time it is no surprise they all this time operating from only one world have been the first to arrive at the scenes of these crimes" he said hoping all were as angry as he was about discovering this truth

"Now with this said not all has proven to be against us we now know these extra galactic invaders have been destroyed, the Asgard are now dead and in this time we have learned that the Tau'ri are so pitiful that they have yet only truly colonised one other world and as we have learned from spies once loyal to the former system lords the Tau'ri have yet failed to unite their own people" explained Sobek letting the information sink in for a few more moments before speaking again

"However against us we are now also aware that the Tau'ri have established a colony in the Nearby Pegasus galaxy where they work to wrap their primitive minds around left over ancient technology and now most recently the El'dari tall humanoid cousins of the Asgard have begun coming from the Pegasus galaxy to colonise worlds in our galaxy if this is not stopped they could one day soon pose a threat to us all" he said believing he had explained his point enough but still deciding he had to sum it up

"If we do not work together here and now there is little hope we can survive the armies being amassed against us. This is a very interesting moment in our history and we risk losing everything, These are the things we must discuss and then we must do something most difficult we must agree on a course of action" he said hoping that his fellow Goa'uld agreed that they could work together

If their summit here went well Sobek's intention was that they would reform the system lord high council and that they would then work together to rebuild the feared and respected Goa'uld empire. He was unsure if all in the room now wanted this course of action but he did know that they had to do what was best for their own kind and time was running out.

Sobek leaned back to listen to the replies that would come from all the others. It was in his best interest to see the reactions of the others and then it would be up to him to convince them all of his next plans.

While Sobek spoke, Mefitis could recognize some of the enemies mentioned but some others were entirely unknown to her. "Replicators"? Machines, perhaps?
Most likely machines.
"Ori"? That was something she would have to inquire about.
But, as Sobek spoke, Mefitis also shivered inside. If he was to be trusted, the Tau'ri either opportunistically unleashed these threats on the galaxy only to defeat them afterwards and paint themselves as liberators and heroes, or they unwittingly invited or... activated those threats. And the Asgard, who she remembered as a technologically-superior folk  gave their knowledge to these pests?
How petty and hate-filled could these homunculi be to feed and release on the galaxy such a horridly-destructive and clueless beast?
They were apparently extinct, but she made an internal memo to wipe out to the last one these "El'dari", these so-called cousins. Nothing of the Asgard bloodline had to survive.

She decided to intervene. "If the pests have the knowledge of the Asgard, then even building our numbers is pointless as long as we remain technologically behind, for any victory against them will be unworthy of being called one, expensive as it would be".
If anyone there was counting on one's own numbers to make a difference, then he or she should have been reminded of the futility of a course of actions following this line of thought. It would have been a pointless waste of resources, but a solution was needed.

She directly turned to Sobek. "You claim that Anubis returned with machinery superior to anything we had. Would it be wise to consider it up to Asgard standards? If so, then what we need is finding the leftovers and sharing them among each other, at least those of a military nature. It would give us a chance against Tau'ri".
A collaborative effort. Under normal circumstances, it would have been rejected. After all the goa'uld usually hoarded technology and knowledge for themselves in order to gain an advantage over the others, but was such selfishness really needed under these conditions?
Their entire kind was threatened with extinction, everything noble they built within the span of millenia was destroyed in little more than a decade and those in the room were the representatives of what little remained of the greatest civilization in history. They had to see reason. Sobek appeared to be willing to work together, but what about the others?

"What can you tell me about these Ori? Were they a powerful foe? Are there any leftovers?". The backup plan. If nothing or very little would be found from Anubis, then they could search among the leftovers of these Ori, if they were a foe powerful enough. There were a few prim'ta at home approaching maturity, after all.

It was almost unbelievable, but in those months which then had become years, many of the Goa'uld who for millennia were snascosti stay, now reappeared and showed their utter lack of information about the facts that occurred in the Milky Way in those last years of 'Goa'uld empire. Mefitis had reappeared too late to know what happened and Khnum went directly to the queen dpo have received some kind of green light from the same Alienna.

"If you have the patience to listen to the story of your brothers and you will trust your words, I can show you what happened to others when you're gone from the empire's political Goa'uld, just know that we fought bitter and terrible stupid wars, first among us encouraging our enemies, then against the enemies that our enemies had awakened ... "

"The Orii saying they were a civilization of ascended beings, which moved by a blind desire to occupy and impose their religion from which they drew their superhuman strength, have caused millions of deaths and the loss of many planets have been permanently deleted by those who have triggered them ... "

"... We are organizing ourselves once again re-emerged from obscurity thanks to this distraction, while the replicators, we were forced to take the field to be myself, that Lord Sobek, putting an end to their existence in a definitive way, this has prompted us again at the sight of the Tau'ri Goa'uld and other threats, including the rebel Jaffa and the Tok'ra, the latter reduced to a few units, but now able to actively cooperate with the Free Jaffa Nation ... here's the Meffitis riassumendola situation! " He concluded Khnum making her eyes sparkle.

 Both women seemed to share the same inner mirth, it was written all over their faces, which was especially unusual for Grundel as it would have been a holiday event had she even got near a smile back on their world. It was quite possible they were thinking the same thing, not coincidental given they shared almost the identical knowledge. Anything newly learned by either was passed along to the other, a back up system so to speak that Allienna had implemented. Her thoughts though we expected from her, given the hard work she had done in just the passing of three years and she wasn't about to see that hard work unraveled because these, the last of their kind still saw themselves as Gods and masters of the galaxy.

 There was thing though to speak of events, another to lie about them. As much as that sinister shadow of her kind still lurked in her soul, Allienna dealt only in facts, not some individuals version of them. Sobek should have known better in this. "Before we proceed much further I should point out Lord Sobek that it was the Shol'va who call themselves the Free Jaffa who discovered the Destroyers, it was they and the El'Dari who were first on the scene. In fact I might add, the children of the Tauri were last to arrive." What next, the Replicators? Before her time, but how would Sobek have such information. "Tell me Sobek, since you were apparently dead for quite some time, how do you know of this, the wars against the Replicators? Did you view it all from your grave?" Her acid tongue could be quite biting at times, such was the disdain she had for twisted truths. "I will tell you Mefitis that while true the Tauri might have awoken that menace, but it was Ba'al who engaged them first and it was his own ego and misdoings that made it worse. In fact if it were not for these meddling newcomers to the sphere of galactic events, none of us would be here to have this meeting, the same goes with the Ori." There was a little anger on her face and for good reason. She let it simmer while Grundel took over.

 "We sit here now, the few of us who are left because of our own egos and blind faith in our supposed god like status. How did we come to such straights from a position of power just fourteen years ago? Let us begin with Apohpis. He could have left things be, but no he had to interfere, if not for him the earthlings would be still sitting idly by unaware of us or the galaxy, still playing with their primitive rockets. After 1994 when they indeed killed Ra, they had no interest in the Chaapa'ai, but no, one of our own disturbed a fire ants nest and we paid dearly for it." For her purpose, even before Allienna had taken over her mother's realm, Grundel was chief historian in the palace, or at least her biological mother was, a Jaffa whose mind could absorb facts and histories like a sponge, her daughter, Grundel's host was equally adept, stepping when the mother fell defending her Queen, killed by her own daughter's hand. "So I ask, who is to blame for our position now? There are those who should be here, yet are absent because they underestimated the strength of the human will. Why do we even think that the Free Jaffa even exist? They do because of our own blindness thinking that our strength lies in our power to own slaves, yet as my Queen has proven, given their freedom, she now boasts the most devoted followers in this galaxy, willing to lay down their lives for her."

 At this point, Allienna had calmed some, she raised a hand. "There is one war left out, one which took place just a little over a year ago. The Hozgura. They had the capacity to wipe from existence every living being in the Universe. Lord Khnum, perhaps you can tell us why and by whom we should be thankful that they were stopped." She was pushing the boundaries now; but Allienna wanted them to see just how weak they have been.

Mefitis lent her ears to Khnum, nodding as he spoke, until she heard what she heard. A people reinforced by belief in them, through mythopoeia?
How sacrilegious, to think that anyone could equate her power or even that of anyone of her kind, but then she examined what she heard again.
These Ori drew their power from their worshippers, but did she have power, at all?
This question stuck the metaphorical spear deeper inside of her and the answers hurted her even more.
What really was in her power?
For the first time in centuries, she had doubts concerning her godhood.
No, she wiped the thought from her head, she had lived for millenia, ever youthful and ever beautiful, never wanting anything but always obtaining it, no matter what it was. Her knowledge spanned aeons, she saw even through her mother's eyes, before she was even conceived, and her very presence sanctified her vessel allowing her to tap in the power contained in her artifacts, a power that was unreachable to any other human.
Of course this was godhood.
Her belief strengthened for the next five hundred years, she focused again on Khnum's words, though she really never ceased paying the necessary attention.

Grundel's words came at the wrongest moment, triggering her aggressive spirit. She kept herself under control, covering her eyes with a hand for a moment to hide the wrathful flash of her eyes.
She gave a final nod, feigning interest in Grundel's argument but waiting to see how this would have evolved.

And, while she witnessed the argument, the thought of the Ori kept hissing in her mind.
She may have been the god that they pretended to be, but perhaps she may have obtained their power. After all, there was no limit to what she could become.

After the crocodile headed god ceased speaking it took only a short time for the others to come up with words of their own which he supposed was exactly what he wanted. It was Mefitis that spoke next concerned that victory was out of their reach but Sobek was sure the situation would not remain as dire as it was now. The mention of the advanced Asgard technology was an odd topic to consider next not only had the Tau'ri gained it but most recently so had their own kind. Sobek had intended to be more responsible then Khnum had been with the hand out of such important technological additions but if Mefitis was going to assist them in the future she would need her ships up to par with the rest of them.

"We currently lack access to the Asgard beam weapons that the Tau'ri were given access to" Sobek had no reason to hide his desire for the advanced weapons technology and it was possible that it would be accessible if they worked together

"It would be best that all of us were equally preprared to face our foes" said Sobek wondering how soon Mefitis would have a combat ready fleet

In truth Sobek did not know much about the Ori and their former crusade he did know though some of what happened. All of their technology had been sent back to wherever it was they had come from as far as he knew, it had all been a large event he had missed. He was fairly sure that Khnum would agree with his plans for reunification and that was the push that Allienna needed to listen to. He sure did hope in the future those two would get along well.

"I am certain that Allienna would be more then happy to share all of her designs" he said wondering if she would decide to slither out of making her own contribution

Listening to what Allienna had to say he wondered just what she was trying to play at. His point had not been to focus upon the Tau'ri more then their other enemies but more that they were all working in unison against them and risking the fragile balance of the universe. The fact that the humans had not been the first on the scene this one time but he was going to see to it that his own forces would be there where possible. Then it seemed Allienna began to speak to him in a most crude manner that was he hated to admit it was entirely unexpected this far into their discussion.

"I can assure you that news of my death was greatly exaggerated perhaps it was propaganda for those far too young such as yourself" he said thinking it was very brave of her to speak to him like this surrounded by her own warriors

"I admittedly was not informed of the invasions at the time being unwelcome at the past summits certainly something that was a mistake considering my experience" said the robed god believing that things would had been different had the former system lords sought his council on such matters

"Allienna says we are weak I say that we have potential to not only rebuild what has been lost but shape it in a way that will lead to prosperity for all that fall under our banners" explained the god that in Tau'ri mythology had come to represent pharaonic power

Far more insulting was Allienna's premature silence his words had apparently struck a nerve one way or another though he certainly was not afraid to keep pushing. He could not help letting out a groan however when the underling known as Grundel began speaking as if the authority she had in Allienna's domain meant that she had the right to speak to them all as equals. Allienna was not the first to bring trusted servants to the summit table and he certainly did not wish for her to be the last but the lack of respect was beginning already to rear its ugly head. He did though as painful as it was hold back his rage hoping the young ones would learn better for the future if they were to continue to be trusted.

"some human populations have always sought to rebel but if you are suggesting that we each do not have our own loyal followers you are gravely mistaken" slavery was a term often used by the most demanding of Goa'uld but just as Yu had once learned Sobek knew that supporting his own people often lead to a far more stable dominion

"The Tau'ri were clearly interested enough to activate their gate the first time it was Ra that decided to leave the Tau'ri to forget the love that their gods could offer them we merely must show them the path to redemption and how the Asgard simply used them as their pawns" He knew now that part of history mattered little now that the Asgard were erased from existence

"We must stretch out our hands once more to the humans that have been led astray and guide them back to us and show them the damage and death to their own kind they have caused" Sobek did not like that Grundel was foolish enough to not understand the less obvious truths but she would learn soon enough

Allienna then decided to mention the Hozgura war such a thing he had heard mentioned in passing before though he did not believe this particular war was anything more then just added shame. Boundaries continued to be pushed much to the crocodile lords annoyance so much so he wondered if this was intentional. Looking around the table he hoped the others at the very least had more self respect and respect for their history and heritage. The worst weakness would seem to be coming from Allienna and her many insecurities she had amassed whether after her rise to power or perhaps before.

"Are you suggesting that we change to suit the desires of our enemies?" He asked wondering if Allienna truly knew what she was saying

Khnum had heard them all without flinching, even when the situation seemed to turn for the worse. He knew the temperament of Sobek and had begun to fear him only in certain circumstances. It was still one of the powers still present in the circle of the Goa'uld, though no longer as in the past. Mefitis had just resurfaced after thousands of years with very little information about the state of the galaxy, he could count on the Goa'uld Achaman, the latter constantly at war against various threats during the last years of the empire.

"Maintain calm the nerves and tones, we must rebuild some, but not repeat the same mistakes of the past, we have shown to be able to be an even powerful race and feared, we must work together for once and put aside our pride and personal battles ... the only way we will strengthen our power in the galaxy! " Khnum concluded by looking at the present and dulling the tones. Alienna smiled for a moment to his words, knew well the public speaking skills of the System Lords, and see them in action was amazing.

"I am willing to work with you all for the common good, my fleet is available to colleytività just in case and as regards the advanced technology derived from that of Anubis, formalizes now in this classroom, which will be divided equally among those present ! " He concluded by looking at the present.

 As expected there was a modicum of resistance to the words both women had spoken, Allienna, nor indeed Grundel expected anything less. The simple fact was that if they were to regain any of the authority and respect their race once had, a new way forward must be started, a fire must be put into them so that were aware of just how close they came to extinction, how close they still were. "I do not argue the point that our technological levels have stagnated over the last several thousand years, that we have grown laxed thinking we were superior doesn't take a great deal of thought to understand why. It must be said though, as much as the so vaunted Asgard did provide some assistance to the Tauri, much of what they have accomplished was done in a very short time, equivalent to a single microsecond in our ancestry. We ourselves it pains me to admit, use technology that was developed in the first instance by humans." So it really made Sobek's point invalid, unfortunately the humans of Earth had that advantage that many of them were in fact carrying that very same DNA that made up the original race of Lanteans.

 "Lord Khnum makes a correct analysis. If we are to proceed anywhere beyond the internal quarrels that were as dangerous to us as our enemies were, we must unite with the aim of working together." Grundel looked over at Sobek, her eyes hooded for a moment as she considered what he asked of her Queen.

 The tension was even there between other races, they could work on that Allienna knew. It wasn't all roses as they say between Earth and the El'Dari. Though she had a point to make, feeling Grundel's irritation. "My designs as you request Lord Sobek are nothing more than utilizing what we already had only in a better way. I think the difference being I allowed human engineers to work on things that traditionally one of our own would do. In just three years, working in secret behind Morrigan's back, I managed to improve several important areas of our ships." She held up a finger at a time. "Hull integrity is improved sixty percent- weapons range, thirty five percent- weapon firepower.." a long pause for emphasis. "....fifty seven percent and finally, hyper drive efficiency, twenty percent." Which galled her greatly. "As we saw on our voyage to Andromeda, the Tauri ships were still faster than mine and their weapons still capable of inflicting much more damage." She would like to know how.

The more she heard those two, the more she hated them, there was nothing she could do about it. They were estranged from everything a Goa'uld was meant to be and they broke every unwritten law that they could possibly break. Now she understood: they were not eccentric, they were full-blown traitors. And one of those two could even spawn, passing her insanity to her children. She was terrified.
She had heard of a tiny group of Goa'ulds who harassed the System Lords for more than two millenia in their attempt to change what a Goa'uld was meant to be and break the fabric of the societies they had built, but she would have never thought to see two of these traitors, two of these Tok'ras, in front of her.
The truth was crystal clear to her: these two had capitulated to man, they were troyan horses.

"With all due respect, it appears that you have a soft spot for man, to say the least" she said as she turned towards Allienna. She would have turned the brain of a First Prime who spoke those words in such a manner into scrambled eggs without thinking twice.

"And you are justifying it by dumping on our entire kind the guilt of a few who happened to be in positions of power. I will not embrace man as an equal, no matter how many vulgar short-term improvements they can bring... to my ships". She spat the last two words. There were other ways to fill the technological gap.

"Our forebears kept man away from the inner workings of our artifacts for a reason: because they knew that, eventually, the knowledge they would have acquired would have been turned against them. It is what happened when Ra was expelled from the First World, and it is what happened when one of our own acted without thinking of the repercussions of his actions, without studying the people that he wanted to conquer first. They wasted no time in reverse-engineering lost pieces of machinery and building up from there.". The thought that the two were different cases didn't reach even the farthest corner of her mind.

She decided to engage in one final desperate attempt to make this youngling see reason."Do you want self-criticism to become a staple of every Goa'uld who, one way or another, was spared from this mess? Fine. Many of us could really use it. But you cannot come here and demand the dismantlement of an entire social system built upon fairness and rightful hierarchy. Man shall never be our equal, and no atomic bomb will be able to change it. In fact, their ingenuity proves their inferiority. I examined the warfare that many of us engaged in for the last millenia, they were field trips compared to the increasing violence that has characterized the inter-tribal warfare of the people of the First World for millenia. I wouldn't be surprised if the casualties of their latest world war, a conflict that lasted a mere six of their years, would reach half of the amount of casualties that have cumulated over five thousands of years of our history. You are naive if you think that their inherently destructive spirit will not be turned on you, eventually".

Finally, the offensive. "Do you want to know what really was our downfall? Our dominance on a galactic level. We played at war for so long that, by the time we were forced to engage in actual war against a foe far more destructive than anyone we have ever faced, perhaps even of Anubis, we were already losing ground. Why? Because man's existence is a moment compared to our eternity, and thus he acted proportionally to the time he was left to live. He was quick, we were slow. This is the reason we lost. The truth is that we were barely even given the time to react, drowning as we were in routine and habit". Someone here was forgetting that man and his gods acted on entirely different lines of thought. Sheer mentality alone could make a difference in war, and while the Goa'uld had to adapt and think like the enemy, this was no reason to change a tried and true system.

"Do not take this for rudeness, but why are you, of all people, organizing this summit? Not that I do not appreciate it, but yours is not our thought, we clearly have different ideologies, and I'm certain that your disrespect for norms and traditions could make you a terrific ally for the people of the First World, if likely a provisional one, to be rid of as soon as the right time comes. So, why? Are we here so that we may form a common front to defend ourselves and, above this, everything beautiful and noble that us and our forefathers have built, or are we here to change this under the mere pretenses of hollow unity and hollow self-defense?". Her attempt to make her realize she was no real Goa'uld, and also her attempt to make the conversation return on the tracks of mutual aid, recovery and, hopefully, vengeance. She didn't even address the claim that the gate-builders were human. The idea that a bunch of cavemen could have built something so useful and utilitarian millions of years ago was spurious and unworthy of even being discussed.

The crocodile god listened to the words of the ram god, doing his best to remain neutral and doing his best to remind them of the reason they were here. He was at least satisfied with Khnum's position for the moment even Mefitis was seeing reason even if Allienna refused to do so. It seemed the diplomatic Goa'uld agreed to share any needed technology with those here that needed it therefore it was only fair that he would do the same. Since it was agreed the sharing of technology was now necessary, he did not need to bring that up again just yet not to mention what Allienna was spitting was beginning to build up the rage inside of him.

Continuing the discussion on technology at least for the moment, Allienna seemed to attempt to twist their history and achievements into nothing this was now going too far. She suggested for a moment that the Goa'uld were not superior he had heard this line of speech from their enemies before such speech would have lead to extreme punishments in the past but for the moment Sobek simply continued to listen letting his rage boil inside. If not for the Asgard he knew the Tau'ri would not have ships capable of matching their own, much knowledge from before the fall of the former system lords had found its way to him through different sources some from Allienna's records others from worlds he had reclaimed with force all of it filling in blanks to create a canvas of the truth. The next words Allienna spoke made him wish Morrigan had remained in control this was absurd, This youngling knew nothing of Ptah and the sources of their technology.

"Silence" he said to Grundel she unlike Allienna had not earned some level of respect from him by overthrowing a traitor to their empire and would be lucky to not find herself made an example of

Allienna then decided to begin suggesting her success was because of the humans she had employed giving them knowledge of Goa'uld technology was a great mistake. In truth he had allowed this because he wished to know if they performed better, saying they are responsible for her achievements continued to stagnate any remaining respect he had for the young queen. He looked over at Khnum wondering if the ram god was going to continue to remain neutral after all that had been said before looking back he considered proving her wrong then and there but now he desired nothing more then keeping the final pieces of truth from this traitor.

Surprisingly before he spoke up it was Mefitis that spoke first bringing up what had been learned rather lightly. Indeed the words of Mefitis rang true many of the former system lords had in fact stayed true to their order dying with honour that he wished more of his race had kept. Calming himself down enough to speak up once more proved difficult, it was he words of Mefitis that cooled his bubbling anger enough to speak.

"When we first found the Tau'ri on the first world they were little more then wild beasts it is true and fair to say over time they have evolved and have proven that with great passage of time they can learn to develop crude but sometimes effective weapons, I believe that many of them have proven themselves worthy of being referred to as worthy servants but their technological accomplishments exist because of our influence their civilisations have been formed because we desired them to be for we the gods saw the potential within them in the first place" said Sobek he had enjoyed the natural creativity humans had for millennia far superior to races such as the Unas when it came to thriving but this did not make them equal to the gods that watched over them

"Admittedly some like Apothis were foolish and we must be the ones to fix such mistakes, Since the great exodus of the first world steps were taken to ensure the humans would develop their technology at a steady pace even the Asgard understood this at the time" he had to wonder why the Asgard had decided to throw away all of their beliefs for this one planet that had not even united itself yet the foolishness of the non divine was certainly without end

Mefitis continued to supply a seemingly endless amount of points that he hoped Allienna was taking into considering before she spoke again. The weapons that humans invented with their primitive standards of technology was not to be ignored but it was a far cry from anything the Goa'uld had created. The following statement stabbed a hole inside of him the mention of the countless deaths that had been caused due to the actions of the Tau'ri was not to be forgotten, not just of the Goa'uld but many human and Jaffa populations had been destroyed he knew that many humans desired nothing less then the extinction of their kind, he also knew many had considered even the extinction of the Jaffa one of the most fair and honourable races in the galaxy that the Goa'uld had made to support them in such a vast universe.
Many humans over the Millenia came and went the Luxuries of the gods brought much health to them and thus increased their life spans a significant amount but not even the Sarcophagus technology could keep a human alive anywhere near long enough to reach their first Millenia.

"It is also worth noting that while a mistake to be sure the Tau'ri were left alone for they at the time posed little threat to us, by the time they began their cowardly attacks against us the former system lords were already busy mitigating the damage done by the return of Anubis and the subsequent unnecessary replicator invasion"

Sobek had to admit he had pity for even the Jaffa who fought honourably against the threats that the humans were foolish enough to release upon the galaxy. The Tau'ri had prospered from the death and destruction of countless other human and Jaffa populations the shame was on them not the Goa'uld who had done nothing but leave the Tau'ri be focusing on keeping order within the galaxy an order he knew the Tau'ri such a young and barbaric race had no ability to understand. The question then came one that he himself had admittedly struggled to understand the answer to, what exactly did Allienna hope to achieve by organising the summit? He knew why the others were here to rebuild their empire to provide mutual defence and understanding and reclaim the galaxy that had almost all but succumbed to chaos.

"Do you seek the same as the rest of us Allienna or do you intend to make our situation worse" asked Sobek who was finally calm enough to speak to the one who he wondered still had the right to be called queen

"I have been silent until now because they are the one who among those present are the least powerful, my domain was dissolved and dispose of only a few Jaffa is a miserable fleet as well as control only three planets, but one thing I understood , it is useless to extend the range of personal domains if you can not personally control their possessions ... I also agree with Khnum with whom I have a great debt I intend to settle as soon as possible, the only thing I can do is give my willingness to collaborate as much as possible with your own strength to strengthen our power ...

 If not for Allienna, Sobek at least, then Mefitis a second behind him would have lost their heads literally. Two things happened when both made assumptions about the young Queen which to her Jaffa were taken as insults, then Sobek added to that injury treating Grundel as some mere underling. Fortunately the Black Guard were outside, but not so those standing behind them working as stewards to make the passing of time comfortable for the Goa'uld. They were not armed with Staff weapons, nor even Zat's, but she did see hands go to belt knives on a few of them and some very angry looks. Grundel herself merely flared her eyes at Sobek as if he was some kind of rabid animal.

 "Please." Allienna said quietly as she lifted a finger to stop her Jaffa and to bring Grundel back to her seat. "We are not here to fight, nor are we here to level accusations at one another." Her keen eyes took in both of them. "My perspective comes from one who taken advantage of what another race can do. Nothing short of what we did from the beginning. If one does not utilize the best of what is available, we do not progress. Using scientists to think outside the thinking that we have carried with us for millennia, frees my own mind to better things. It would be folly on our part to think for a moment that human beings are merely there to use as hosts, look closer they are not as weak nor as simple as you believe them to be. What I seek is the betterment of our kind and the guarantee we can survive, nothing less and I will use whatever it takes to do so." A slight pause, she was going to launch into a heavily weighted argument for the both of them, only that Achaman had spoken wisely.

 But she did have one thing to say to counter Mefitis. "Why are you here if all you seek is to cling to the old ways that brought about our ruin in the first place? We must change or be cast aside." That was all she was going to say on the matter, if they were unable to see that, then it would in the end be their own loss.

With none of her arguments addressed, Mefitis felt as if she had wasted her breath on this arrogant youngling. Was she lazy or simply not the brightest bulb to repeat her argument again, ad nauseam?
And, somewhere, she sneaked more insults towards her kind. Now the Goa'uld had no ingenuity of their own and NEEDED man to survive. As if the contrary was not real. As if man did not exist to be uplifted and prevented from being unleashed on the galaxy by his gods.

Something was deeply wrong with this one. Morrigan, like most queens, like most Goa'uld, was a proud creature and it would have been only reasonable to assume that her pride would have been passed on to her children through her genetic memory. This one... these ones, actually... she had never heard self-hatred in these quantities, and it was just not logical.
For a moment the thought that the two women in front of her didn't even host any of her kind came to her mind. Ah, it would have explained so much, but she could feel the traces of naquadah in their blood. But what if it was a trickery?
Goodness, what were these things?

"The easiest answer is the most logical one", she told herself. These were Tok'ra. Or perhaps they were seduced by their monstrously self-destructive philosophy.

She slightly leaned forward, with her hands crossed on the table, and she condensed all of her arguments, those that were not addressed, in two questions:
"Are you a Tok'ra?". She should have answered this one. "And if you are not, how are you not a Tok'ra? What makes you Goa'uld, what makes you one of us and not something alien?". All of her rage was put into these questions and, though she was fuming inside, she feigned tranquillity.

Allienna's attempt to turn Mefitis' own final question against her was met with derision. "Pitiful", she told herself. Her reasons were clear, she came to undo change, not to embrace it, especially not to mindlessly embrace it for its own sake. It was Goa'uld to see this, and if Allienna couldn't, she had no place among her kind. She would not answer.
For a moment the image of Allienna's ha'tak being in formation with a Tau'ri fleet flashed in her mind. She cast it away, deeming it improper to the situation and somehow external to her self, but for a moment she hinted a smile, before reassuming her solemnity. It had interesting implications.

The nervousness of Mefitis became clear at the same khnum, who very conceal his reaction, the rest of the doubt that had the newcomer, was something that he had deep, but without evidence, he could do nothing. Accusing a board member Goa'uld no evidence was literally dangerous. A war or worse an attempt on his person would be the shower, it exudes at that time, that with effort had rebuilt everything. Calmly, the System Lords addressed the same Mefitis looking in the eyes.

"Today no one is guilty of anything, if Alienna our host is really a Tok'ra thing that I do not believe, then we will decide on how to act, but now we have to make a decision, no one wants to abandon our history and tradition, we have to evolve .. .. "

"... I myself can barely take a step so decided, tradition is important, but we can find a starting point without abandoning ourselves!" He concluded hoping to have quelled the spirit of Mefitis.

"Nobody accuses anyone of anything, Lord Khnum" she said as she turned towards him. "Rather, someone asks explanations. If she" her finger instinctively pointed Allienna. "speaks like a Tok'ra - and I challenge you to prove the opposite - proposing the destruction of the one system that allowed men, jaffa and gods alike to coexist in harmony, each with its own place in society until the Tau'ri took to the void, it is only fair that I be given reassurances that she is not what I fear her to be. If she is not enemy of everything we stand for, she has to prove it". She leaned back towards the chair, turning again towards Allienna.
Then she turned again towards Khnum, as if she had forgot something.

"We can collaborate, but I do not want to hear any more pressures for what concerns the way I rule my people. She can keep her system". "For everyone to see how miserably it will fail", she thought in her head. "I intend to keep my own. And if she truly wants to unify the Goa'uld against the Tau'ri and not continue on a spiritual level what the Tau'ri have accomplished materially under the mere pretense of a hollow union, she will accept her differences".
She turned again towards Allienna, awaiting her answer.

The queen Mefitis continued to watch as he replied to the words of the Goa'uld Khnum much that the situation was getting very heavy for the present, but again Khnum decided to intervene to appease the tones of those present.

"Not our form of government is no doubt, we are able to pick ourselves up, we have already passed once the entire risk of extinction in the past and if you remember well, we were really very few, less than twenty in all Galaxy including the queen Goa'uld survivors! " He concluded Khnum smiling slightly as he took the word Achaman.

"Lord Khnum is wise to say, none of us wants to make a change if you do not want, we are free to choose, personally I'm going to rebuild my empire as I have always done in the past, even in the most desperate situations we Goa'uld we survived , we will do that this time, the victory against the replicators has led to a situation that has become dangerous but which is leading us to recall month after month, new military forces from Jaffa that more and more, leaving the Free Jaffa Nation, to return by the gods ... "he concluded Achaman observing the present.

 Mefitis was certainly pushing the boundaries of civil discussion, to the point several of Allienna's stewards left in disgust rather than shame their Queen by acts of rashness. Grundel's eyes if possible were boring holes right through the dark haired queen, so much so she wanted to put her into the nearest airlock herself. If not for the complete calm of the Queen, chaos would have ensured there and then; it didn't. Because Mefitis and indeed even Sobek had some strange concept in their minds that Allienna wasn't on the same level or even the same philosophical path as they. Indeed she wasn't. How could she be? She was created by a Queen who had been around far longer than most of them, a Queen who had seen the changes over the eons and saw that for them to pass successfully into the future a clean and uncluttered mind was needed. Hence her children, both hosts and symbiotes born mere minutes apart. "I shall not embarrass you Mefitis by delving into your mind games, instead I will reply in kind. What separates us from the Tok'ra? What makes us different?" She knew the answer, but she had something else in mind. "For as long as all of us can remember right up to the most recent past, we have been striving to find or create the perfect host have we not? Something the Tok'ra would never do. Am I correct in that assumption?"

"Embarass me?" she scoffed as she instinctively pointed to herself with a finger.
"You were given two questions, questions which any one of us would have easily answered, though I can imagine with a very defensive tone. There is no wisdom in twisting these questions and sending them back to the sender, Allienna. The only one who would have seen 'mind games', traps, in my questions, would have been a guilty person". That was the second question she dodged. She had grown tired of this farce and so far Allienna's unwillingness to cooperate was itself a major sign that she was a troyan horse.

She decided to not even pay mind to her ramblings about hok'tars and thus decided to end her own personal trial against those two. For as far as she was concerned they were guilty of being abominations but she had come there to cooperate with them and, above all, with the other three present, and she did not intend to go unless she had a deal with someone. She now referred to all of those present. "This will not lead anywhere, and certainly not because of me. Let us go back to the reason why we came here. Do we agree to share our technological breakthroughs in all things military?". Unless any kind of cooperation with her was conditional on the acceptance of Allienna's 'reforms', that is.

The crocodile lord had grown quite amused by the back and forth between Allienna and Mefitis, Of course it was not truly a humorous matter but then he always saw things in a different light. He found himself not only agreeing with Mefitis but was also annoyed by Allienna's constant attempt at changing the course of the situation when the attention was focused on her.
He allowed them to talk a bit more as he listened to what they both had to say including the strange questions the young queen attempted to bring up for whatever the reason he decided he was going to humour her. The red eyes of the crocodile helmet had rarely strayed from Allienna but he had not failed to notice the servants of Allienna abandon the room, indeed this was why the amount of mortals invited to the summit of the gods was supposed to be limited their fragile minds too easily swayed by loyalties to any one Goa'uld their minds unable to comprehend the vastness of the stars.

"Our traditions exist for a reason." he began stating obvious fact.

"I concur with Mefitis that you can keep your system but for Millenia we Goa'uld have been united despite certain cultural differences unlike the humans that fear anything that is different to their own limited primitive understanding." the crocodile god saw no reason to demand that Morrigan's traditions be reinstated, sure enough if Allienna were dethroned it would be difficult to see them not correcting the mistake by process of elimination.

"Achaman is correct in pointing out that some of the free Jaffa will rejoin us if given the chance no doubt many have already become fed up serving under their new Jaffa warlords." the Jaffa of every System lord had formed some form of unique culture this in the past made assimilation of another Goa'uld's armies slightly more difficult, they without the gods would have now faced the same troubles the humans dealt with, fear of each other.

"While I hope your lack of answering such a simple question is some form of humour may I remind you Allienna that now is not the time for such foolery for I am sure had you suspected one of your own of being a traitor you would not sit idly by while they dodged your reasonable questions" He said annoyed that she was seemingly stirring up trouble.

"The Tok'ra wished to see our tradition abolished as you do also, They sought to kill their brothers and sisters showing more loyalty to man then their own this you have not done, yet." He hated that he had to say this after all even most high ranking Jaffa knew this information.

"Not all of us have spent time and resources focused on creating new hosts although as I understand it this research was quite successful, the Tok'ra in the past have indeed been mostly against the usage of servants only on a few occasions have they attempted to use our own armies against us and each time we crushed them." He said referring mostly to the battle of Malkshur.

"I am unsure if the Tok'ra in most recent years would have perhaps begun further tests to create more viable warriors." He said knowing the Tok'ra were as far as he knew the least of their concerns.

"The sharing of military technology will no doubt be of exceptional use and will ensure a hasty reformation of our empire, I agree." whether Allienna was involved or not the others were dedicated to reclaiming their galaxy from the barbaric chaotic forces that threatened to wipe out the last bastion of light and order.

"Now let's stop attacking us with each other, we have come to work together, more than I own I can not make that offer it, my Ha'tak have the same firepower of those built by anubis after his ascension, I also implemented a cloaking system based on the one used by Apophis for its fleet in the orbit of the planet Tobin, also on each Ha'tak in my possession, I have implemented more advanced sensors and asgard traveling otherwise than doubled the speed of the engine Hyperdrive ... echo what I offer, you instead you offer? " He replied khnum showing what they have. Achaman smiled, knew the of Khnum technologies, had not benefited and was astonished to see the amazed face of Mefitis, but most of the same Alienna. To the knowledge of much of the information as soon as you hear, the other was completely unaware.

"My Jaffa army also has been transformed with the addition of new martial arts and we are currently studying a mechanism to stop the mind-reading by El'dari ... Kelani is offering us a lot about his race, creed that soon we could create new weapons thanks to his knowledge and as far as I hok'tar ... many scientists and the militias once to Nirrti service, so the search for hok'tar is under control!

 By this time Grundel had enough. While she respected her brethren for who and what they were, she did not respect their implications against her 'sister'; she stood, the sound of her hands slapping down hard on the table echoed through the near empty chamber. Allienna merely smiled with that hidden innocence that veiled the power she held within.

 "How dare you, how dare both of you question my Queen's loyalty to our cause and our kind. You!" She glared at Mefitis. "You have come from nothing, from nowhere, as far as we are all concerned you could be a usurper or even a spy yourself. What do we know of you? Nothing, only your word. You, Sobek, a persona bent on destruction, one who hid himself away like a dog with his tail between his legs while 'we'.." He eyes took in Khnum, Achaman and Allienna. "....fought off one of the most terrible scourges to have ever confronted our kind, not once, but four times. Yes we worked with the humans, but we also worked on our own, defending who and what we are so that you sit here now in freedom and not dead at the hands of those you despise so much. Do you know the shame and humility it cost some of us to go into league with the Tauri and their allies, how much inner pain it costs us every time we have to treaty with them? No you don't, because all you can do is sit their in judgement on things you know nothing about."

 As she spoke, Allienna's mind was going over several things. The first was that if she didn't salvage this here and now, those old wounds and hostilities between Goa'uld would resurface, putting them back to the inner wars she thought they could put behind them. The second thing was a hidden enemy she knew was still out there, her scouts having reported seeing them on the edges of the galaxy gaining power by the week. "Grundel, be seated or leave." She ordered, which had the right effect, the red head sitting down hard like a recalcitrant child. "Certainly we will not be going anywhere in this meeting at all until we each start trusting one another. Do any of you think for one second that you would sitting here talking as we are still breathing if I were Tok'ra? To even suggest that is the most absurd notion I have heard yet. Now, if we are to talk about what we can share, we need to agree on that one thing, trust."

Well, she didn't touch a nerve, she stabbed it with a knife, apparently. As Grundel ranted, Mefitis snickered. Rude, yes, but she could not help it. Finally, she recomposed herself and she spoke when Grundel was done. "Your master is a usurper, she overthrew her mother and, in the process, grabbed everything she had from her. I genuinely cannot imagine from which pulpit you can accuse me of something that your master was responsible of... and consider it a bad thing". The mix of irony and hypocricy made her want to laugh openly and loudly, but she contained herself. Whether she was a usurper or not was irrelevant. What mattered was how could it be used as an accusation from Grundel.

"And your claims are only dictated by blind rage. Who could my master be? Sobek's envoys visited my world, they saw what they would have never seen on your worlds: hierarchy and, with it, the prospect of long-term harmony. You pretend to be disgusted at the idea of dealing with the Tau'ri while you hire men to design your ships and, from what I could understand, blend their technology with our own. I have seen the projector that your master used on Gleanavar when we spoke for the second time, it was not our own and it was certainly not Asgard either". She referred to Allienna's laptop, coming to the conclusion that if it was neither Ancient nor Goa'uld or even Asgard, it could have only been adopted from the newcomers.
In her own mind and now that she thought about it, Allienna was by far the only one to be truly lacking ingenuity. The Goa'uld were not scavengers as Allienna claimed, Allienna herself was one. Specifically, the only one.

She decided to give a break to Grundel and finally turned towards Allienna. "For as far as I know, you could become the next Supreme System Lord. You have the resources, the ones you inherited from your mother, you could very well be one. Then Egeria will have won, for her ideas would have been sneaked inside our ranks to the point of having our very leader adhering to them. There are different ways to strangle our spirit and this is one. Considering the circumstances, it is even more effective than attempting to kill us all", she ended with a faint smile.
"You will have my trust if you will show that collaboration with you is not conditional on the acceptance of your ideology. I will share any military breakthrough with you and come to your aid in case of attack from any one that is not present here, even with the scarce resources currently at my disposal, but I do not intend to embrace any of your 'innovations', if your hollow and baseless criticism of our ways was meant to advertise them and push them on us".

Finally, she turned against Khnum. "We can accomplish a standardization of our forces through the sharing of our military technology, ensuring that not one of us becomes the soft underbelly of our order, your collaboration could be useful. With a standardized army and fleet, the enemy will never be able to find in one a weakness not present in the other. Then, it will be only a matter of time before we will retake the galaxy from the warlords. I suggest that each one of us be declared warden of a corner of this galaxy, giving us zones of competence, it could help us coordinate better". Hopefully, her brainstorming turned attention away from an argument, Allienna's diversity, that she hoped could be ignored.

"A a standardization of our technology is what we have always worked during these millennia, the late Lord Ra was among the first to make it compulsory for the reasons you've just announced ...." replied khnum looking at the present and turning his sgaurdo towards Grundel, the Goa'uld he turned to her with very conciliatory tones.

"Tha'raban ... soon reach you, I excused myself from any obligation toward!" He exclaimed knowing well that this news would have calmed the young Goa'uld.

Sobek stared at Grundel as she seated herself had she been under his command she would have been punished greatly for her actions, then he was certain Allienna had let her finish her outburst on purpose and he would not forget what had just occurred and it was Allienna's responsibility that much was certain as well. The crocodile god had at this point certainly grown tired of the young Goa'uld's outbursts, Now he had to deal with the young queen and her attempts at manipulating them all and her usage of Tau'ri technology was most suspicious.

"I am sure you were very amused by that Allienna." He said as he looked her in the eyes

"You pretend that you want us to have a calm situation yet you bring with you those that reach for their weapons at the slightest criticism." He said noting that already many had left unable to contain themselves.

"If you truly wish to continue I ask you cease all of these most shameful attempts at antagonising us." The crocodile god was most unimpressed.

"We have already agreed to the sharing of military technologies though I might add that standardisation can have its drawbacks as well, we have also agreed that you may keep your current system if you wish to risk your own life so be it, If you are not a Tok'ra then you will seek vengeance upon our enemies with the rest of us." The crocodile god knew that the restoration and reclamation of their territory was more important then arguing over the usage of humans to design ships.

"If you want trust you must earn it." Sobek was not about to blindly trust her after all he had so far seen.

"If we are to discuss battle plans Mefitis, I suggest we consider beginning by discussing our enemies abilities, Only then can we discuss who gains what territory though I believe that uniting our forces will allow us to far better battle the threats we are soon to challenge." Sobek knew at some points attacking targets individually would be necessary but many worlds would require them to attack together, Discussing how to manage these captured territories however was a good topic to discuss if they all agreed on the means they would gain them.

 "They are my guard, what do you expect in 'my' house." For as it was so far, this was still an unfinished project of her own, her own resources and built on her own initiative without any outside help to this point in time. "Now that you have both appeared to have settled down some, I will explain again a little more slowly. The first subject I tried to bring to you all was concerning our ever present search for the perfect host. That, I may add is also a tool that adds to our weaponry is it not?" Taking a sip of wine, she continued on. "If you are willing to listen, I will tell you my views and indulge you in the research I have undertaken over the last three years, can you accept that for a moment?"

Allienna kept insisting about hok'tar even now that the situation had calmed. Maybe it was more rambling, but certainly she appeared to believe in it, it was no simple effort at pacification or at least it did not sound like one. Mefitis was conflicted. On one side, she had grown accustomed to her pètite frame, going so far as intimately identifying herself with it and being unwilling to change it. There was an emotional attachment to it, the kind of attachment that one develops on a treasured object like a picture, a doll or a book, but on the other the idea of a vessel more befitting her position interested her. Finally, the interest took the upper hand, if barely. Lots of skepticism remained.
"Let her speak" she said to Sobek. Her tone made it clear that she did not expect anything breathtaking.

 When things happen slowly in Allienna's world, she raises the bar for her people to aim higher. Since she worked alone for three years away from the prying eyes of her mother with only a few thousand of her Leopard clan, she made advances that many could only reach for, to be snapped away like a cloud of dust.

 "Several things. The first I am sure is important to all of us." Her slender fingers ran across the edge of the table where she sat, from the center of that large polished table a three dimensional image appeared, one that could be viewed from all sides. It was apparently from recordings she had made earlier for the eventual meeting, but now was as good a time as any. "The device that projects this is my own advancements with our vocuum technology, smaller, more efficient and has six times the inerspace range. It can be made to look like anything, if you look under the table, you will see a simple small wooden block that appears to be a part of the timber. It can be set to transmit automatically, or used if placed by an agent as the perfect spying device, it will not only communicate, but record for later viewing."
 She smiled slightly at Mefitis. "The machine you saw earlier on my world Mefitis, as I said, my device can be made to look like anything."
 Pressing a small crystal on her wrist band, it began to play, showing what looked like an internal gun range. At one end a suit of traditional Jaffa armor stood on a stand, a dummy took the place of the Jaffa. The camera panned around to show a Leopard guard loading and aiming a Lucian alliance assault rifle, 8mm high impact rounds. She fired a short burst then the camera zoomed into the chest of the armor; showing the killing bullet holes. "This is something most of us have faced at one time or another. We've even had superior numbers only to be cut down by these primitive weapons." She played another scene. This time one of her own guards stood at the end of the range in Allienna's armor, the same as the one she wore. The cycle was repeated; the woman was pushed back, even partially falling. She then stood removing the upper half of the armor to show several large red welts on her chest and stomach. She was at least alive and well.

That was no hok'tar, but rather an apparently more resilient soldier. Which, if adopted, would have cut down the utility of the jaffa as the foot troops of the Goa'uld.
Nothing she needed, a simple personal shield would have done for her, and the deaths of the jaffa were a reliable population control measure for her children. An absolutely misplaced research with no reason to exist. The weapon, though...
She pointed at the rifles. "I like those things. Not as powerful as our own staffs", in fact, their munitions could have been near-harmless. She had no idea of the destructive power of live rounds and, indeed, for as far as she knew, one of her men could have also survived that, the resiliency shown by that men being potentially only apparent. They appeared to base their effectivity on the fire rate. "but certainly more accurate. Are they of Tau'ri origin?".
She saw absolutely no utility in that new breed of man, but she feigned interest. "And the woman... rather resilient. What would take to kill her? Is your vessel one of them?".
She already thought to know the answer; if they can't be killed with a few rounds of those primitive but apparently reliable weapons, more should do. If not... a bunch of stabbings with a knife.

In her mind, meanwhile, she began to come up with a design similar to the one she saw but with a miniaturized naquadah power cell in place of those curious munitions. In many ways, a more accurate and wieldy staff weapon.

"A new version of the most protective armor ... interesting Alienna, we could revise the current armor supplied to our loyal Jaffa, placing this new material in place of the previous one that was less protective even with primitive strokes of the Tau'ri. ... "exclaimed Khnum ,remaining pleasantly surprised by the research done by the princess.

"This material, you can use it to create an alloy of metals final?" he asked in turn instead Achaman remained mostly silent.

The crocodile god decided to relax and allow Allienna to explain the things that she wished to reveal to them. The holographic device was impressive but so was all of their technology but focusing on what was being shown he watched as both new weapons and armour were shown being tested.

Sobek knew the many advantages of their current technology, he had always made the best use of it when it came to expanding his empire. He did know that these weapons being used were extremely similar to the weaponry employed by the Tau'ri to challenge their Jaffa warriors an interesting creation a step above the crossbows that humans normally developed in attempts to kill from the safety of their community villages.

"So tell us what is the material you used to design this armour?" He asked choosing to consider its military application.

"I remain skeptical but please do continue." Sobek was not convinced these weapons would be better than their staff weapons for staff weapons had a number of advantages that he had yet to see these ballistic weapons employ or improve upon.

 "Stop pacing sister, you'll wear a hole in the floor." Grundel demanded of the Queen. Fortunately for her no one was around, otherwise formalities would definitely be in place. "I wouldn't worry over much, despite the outbursts of ego and protestations of denial, I believe they'll return in a better frame of mind this time." As she spoke the Commander was admiring the finished work that had to be done after the devastation of the meteor shower a month ago. She was also comforted in the knowledge that at least now, the stars could throw anything at the station and it would stand.

 Allienna stopped, her thoughts paused. "I would hope so, I don't believe I made a very good impression back then. But there is one saving grace, that time allowed us to finally gain control of those remaining assets of Ba'al. We now effectively between us and the Shol'va Ishta, command almost one half of the galaxy. What is left remains the crumbs of the old order." She looked pleased with herself. Still the waiting was grating on her nerves.

Sobek the crocodile god was the first after Allienna to renter the summit chamber.
The crocodile lord had spent much needed personal time whether in his sarcophagus or simply bathing it all added up to him feeling quite pleased, He had also seen to it that he had recorded some messages to be sent home to Faiyum to let his queen know that he was fine and that the summit was progressing mostly as planned.
The meteor shower a month ago had been slightly inconvenient but it had allowed him to help make some much needed finishing touches on the station.
He saw that Grundel had also returned which did not fail to remind him of what had been said all that time ago, Goa'uld were known for their long grudges and Sobek was no exception in that regard.

"I was told today we would be continuing our discussions." The crocodile god did not wish to be seated again until all were in the room.

"I hope you did not drive the others away." Said Sobek jokingly choosing for now to keep his distance from Allienna until they needed to be seated.

Much had been discussed a month ago yet still so much had been missed, Over the month he had split his time between sorting through the station designs and helping Allienna make construction decisions while also planning for the reconvening of the summit where he had organised a long list of things he wished to know and expected from his fellow Goa'uld as well as himself. Sobek intended to not leave until a plan of action had been decided upon by all parties, That meant convincing them of following his plans to take back control of the galaxy and place them back in the position of respect their race deserved. Still the talk of advances in military technology meant that some of them needed time to achieve the necessary advances, Sobek supposed if necessary he would have to wait though he had little desire to do so. The next phase for him personally now would be to see just how willing the others truly were to fight or if they were in fact only telling him what they thought he wanted to hear, He was not going to make the mistake of believing this task was going to be easy but he knew it was necessary if they were going to achieve something with their time spent here.

Goa'uld Station (Achaman Ha'tak and station) 1 month later


A month after the summit, Achaman had doubled the number of its fleet and its army, not only thanks to the collaboration of its main ally Khnum, but also thanks to its strategic skills, managing to capture two Ha'tak the Free Jaffa Nation . Meanwhile the training of new recruits between the planet's population Echeyde, had brought great fruits for its influence in the galaxy. the first time he had come to the station, had little to offer, but now the situation was changing. His domain was left of the minimum size, but in the meantime its economic and military policy, had paid off. On board his flagship, the Goa'uld had come close to the solitary station, Alienna had been warned of his arrival and Achaman began again to open a new era of rebirth, as he had been several times over the centuries. The Ha'tak approached the station, entering one of the huge hangar where the moorings for those mighty ships were prepared. Only when the pyramid ship grappling definitely the media, the Goa'uld got up followed by his queen. Chaxiraxi was worthy of a queen. Her thin dress showed off her perfect body covered with golden jewelry.

"Jaffa in our absence the command falls to my First Prime Dacil, every order is like my mind you .... our presence in this Goa'uld installation is time to strengthen our position in the galaxy, no gesture hostile by Tibicenas Guards will be tolerated! " He ended with Achaman hardness while the Queen smiled smugly. After using the conveyor rings, Achaman reappeared with his queen and their two Lo'taur waiting for them in a room where there was a personal guard of the delegation of Alienna.

"I am the God Achaman in the company of his queen, the Goddess Chaxiraxi, we were invited by your queen Alienna, I ask you to escort us in the sight of your majesty!" She exclaimed the System Lords making her eyes sparkle. Delegates to welcome them bowed their heads when the Goa'uld addressed them though firmly, but with extreme kingship.

The meteor shower was an unexpected event which certainly set back a lot her plans, though she knew that they would reach an agreement nevertheless. Still... she couldn't help it, she hated being away from her homeworld and, since she didn't feel of any utility when it came to repairing and finishing the station, she had decided to just stick with her people in her ship, before becoming tired of them and deciding to take a good, long nap in a sarcophagus.
She had even forbid her servants to mingle with the others there. Not that they could have done it, ignorant as they were of the galaxy's declining lingua franca, attempts at communication would have been futile.

Now, finally, she was awake, happy of having "jumped" weeks of tedious bearing of people who were not her subjects, physically and mentally reinvigorated by what had been her bed for the last month.
She came out of the sarcophagus helped by her lo'taur before being attended to for a few minutes for her appearance. Her hair tied back into the usual half updo and covered by the usual palla, she finally decided to meet the others back in the conference room.

Allienna and Sobek were there chatting in a far friendlier manner than last time, a good sign.
"Good day, comrades", she said as she entered the room followed by her guards and lo'taur.
She decided to be a bit more optimistic. Yes, she would have returned home with something worth all this hassle.

 All those who were to be there were assembled, it was slightly sad for the young Queen. Of a known thirty five System Lords and hundreds of Minor Goa'uld, this was the sum total they had to show now. Quietly she bowed her head as the last of them arrived. "Welcome all." She said quietly as her face lifted.

 Grundel's duty was clear, she was the master of ceremonies conducting the business side of events, arranging and organising everything that was to be put in place. "The Summit has begun, Chaxiraxi we bid you welcome. Lord Khnum would you be so kind as to start the proceedings. Information has reached us that Bastet lives still and is possibly under your protection."

Sobek decided that then it was best to return to his chair he had been provided, returning to the table was for the moment the best thing he could do. He had no idea why Achaman had brought his queen but then it was perhaps not the last strange thing yet to occur at this summit.

The crocodile god most certainly did not appreciate the other Goa'uld trying to twist the meeting into a game for them to play, they would now discuss if they were going to be apart of things to come or if they would not. Sobek for the moment sat in his chair doing his best to remain calm before it was time to speak.

Alienna Station Goa'uld


It was the first time that the Queen came from the planet chaxiraxi Echeyde in recent times. in almost five hundred years he had never been able to move away from the building Guancha, but now that the situation appeared to be still not the best, he had been allowed to leave the palace and accompany the same husband and sovereign. He had come accompanied by all the honors directly inside the station where waiting for her there was even the ruler of the planet Khenem. Khnum had appeared from behind the Alienna troops. Also he surrounded his queen Satis exceptionally well as a personal guard composed of two brothers Faris and Fai'san. The two queens did not know personally, but for reputation and when they saw each other, the two quickly snapped the agreement. Their combined beauty was something that made bad any other girl seen previously.

"I am honored to be able to know Lord Achaman and are even more admired Queen chaxiraxi for you, the stories about your beauty are reductive ... I say seriously, I will not be lying because I recognize my peers and I understand the jealousy of your husband!" She cried quietly but also coil Satis making an obvious bow to the two sovereign Echeyde planet. Chaxiraxi was also amazed by clothing his parigrado, but especially by 'hairstyle made of live snakes among accconciati wavy hair on the head.

"Now that our queens are known, I believe it is appropriate to join the owner of the station, Alienna is right now busy with the System Lord Sobek on some issues, and it seemed the case will come to greet you myself, for that matter Achaman Lord, I know that you have increased the fleet and the army in Jaffa really exceptional time, I'm happy for you and admired for your ability to respond, very few were able to do what you do ... but now Come together to Alienna because it has added a Goa'uld who has pretended to be dead until now! " He concluded Khnum smiling evilly while making a sign as accconsentire passage. The path to the hall did not last long and when the two couples came in, it was the same Khnum to announce.

"Princess Alienna, we are full ...we can begin the work, or should we wait a few more representative? "he asked, looking in the eyes Bastet with sarcasm on the other side of the room with his lo'taur.

 The young Queen stood, it was far passed the time for them to sort their lives out. This would indeed cover many aspects of the Goa'uld system and all those lives that revolved around them, both friend and foe. "I believe the first order of business should be the establishment of a list as it were, those in this galaxy whom we count as enemies. Since the Lucian Alliance has now been neutralised, what other threats are there that might impinge on the expansion of our realms." She was well aware that this topic may again bring hostile words, but it had to be brought out in the open.

 Grundel kept recording everything that was said, there would be no ambiguity at any point later on. She did have one token item to add. "I believe the establishment of a ruling council should be entered into. Since not a single one of us are from the old order, we may have to cast a ballot to decide who should preside over that council." Of course that point would be mute, they'd all vote for each other naturally. "The other way to decide I imagine would be simply to choose that one who governs the largest realm." Which of course would fall to her sister.

 Allienna could see where this was going, she smiled almost innocently. "Or we could fight for it." That would be interesting, none of them were strong enough for that, not against what she held within her. A little unfair but one must do, what one does to survive.

While Mefitis and her lo'taur took back their old seats and her guards took position behind her, Achaman and Khnum finally came back from their homeworlds with their respective queens.
She hailed them with a nod and a smile, wondering what could be the reason of their presence, then she turned her attention to the matter at hand.

Allienna made a good point, but for now Mefitis preferred to leave the obvious answers to the others.
The redhead's proposal was far more interesting. "Which competences would this 'ruling council' have?.
The two words mildly scared her. A tool to diplomatically solve disputes would have been something she would agree with, but if this was an attempt to centralize power and decision-making...

The presence of Mefitis the station was not entirely unusual for the two Goa'uld lords. Now they had to find the Goa'uld accounts not up to them, in such situations. the rest were gone most of the old system lords, and consequently the new recruits or those who managed to emerge or survive, sooner or later would come to claim a position of power in society that will emerge. The two couples went into the room where Alienna was present and greeted him with a nod of the head, continuing Alienna. Each of them has gained prominence from their clothes, breaking Alienna from his duties.

"Princess Alienna, are pleasantly surprised to see completed this station, the cooperation among the gods is never destructive, indeed creates architectural and engineering masterpieces really hard to match!" exclaimed Achaman slightly bowing his head at the same Alienna, did the same thing chaxiraxi bride.

"We are waiting to begin this summit, we brought our wives because we intend to expand our possessions and during this phase, they will support the government of our empires in our absence, they must be made aware of the plans of goa 'uld! " He concluded in turn Khnum shaking hands to his queen, Satis.

 Since that 'concept' came from Grundel, Allienna allowed her to continue. She would though when in private be having some discussions with her 'sister'. "Continue" She said passively.

 The redhead was well aware that she had put the Queen off a little, a very human flush of color came to her cheeks. She had to though respond firstly to Achaman and Khnum as due courtesy dictated. "After that unexpected meteorite shower Lord Achaman, we realized there were a few design flaws both internally and externally. We also upgraded the warning and defence systems so that an event like that will never take place again. The interiors were finished by Lord Sobek's people with some of ours assisting in design. It all came together with the finishing touches only twelve hours ago."

 Allienna knew Grundel had the all too human capacity to wax lyrical endlessly about achievements, so she had to ensure she kept to the subject, which was easily done. "Ahem." Was all that it took.

 "Yes the council. The first thing we could establish a body to oversee territorial disputes, thus relieving us all the pain of our former years when we spent more time fighting one another than our enemies." At this point she used 'could' instead of 'should', as Lucia had not yet been given to her as promised, she was still effectively a junior among them.

 "I agree. We would have to set it up in such a way that at least three of us would sit in judgement to mediate the issue." That to Allienna made the most sense of all.

"The meteor shower was an opportunity to improve what was already excellent by the standards of any advanced race of this galaxy, however, thanks to the improvements made by Lord Sobek, the station is by far the most advanced place probably lost empire Goa'uld! " Khnum replied watching the princess in the eyes. Achaman said nothing, his queen watched the architecture of those places, so different from the usual gold typical of the Goa'uld.

"Really particular the architecture of this place, so different from the one we have used for thousands of years!" She exclaimed the Queen chaxiraxi bringing back alongside Achaman, taking her hand.

"I also agree." Said Sobek knowing that ceasing internal conflicts in the future at least as much is possible would be good for them all.

"This station is suitable for our current needs." The crocodile god was happy to be here but had no interest in lingering on the topic of the station itself.

"Allienna when you offered military technologies did you intend to share with us the means to produce this technology or were you going to simply allow us to acquire it from you for a price?" Sobek would have little time for or desire to establish trade routes for loads of new equipment.

"You also wanted to establish a list of our enemies which I also believe should be enforced in case some decide they wish to try and betray their fellow Goa'uld." Sobek knew that they all knew his concerns on that matter were realistic but he still wished that he had not needed to say it.

"We will then also need to share any information we have on our enemies with one another before we intend to mount any type of united resistance." The crocodile god was most eager to see his fellow Goa'uld prosper and join him in taking back the galaxy but only once they were finally ready.

"We are here today to stand together I hope this upward trend will continue for it is the only way that we may provide the security for our subjects and claim our rightful positions." Sobek was ready and eager to see where the summit would go from here.

Fair enough. Nothing that she needed it, for the moment, but she saw no reason to oppose it either. The other Goa'ulds there, those with bigger domains, were more likely to see territorial disputes and a mediating body would have been ideal to prevent intercine wars, the Goa'uld had enough of them, for the time being.
"That is something I consider agreeable". But would this board create a position of prestige among the Goa'uld?
Her mind went to work. "But I suggest that the position of mediator be subject to change for every case and at every time. Not only we would spare ourselves the farce of any one of us judging himself or herself, with everything that could come from this, but we would also make sure that sixty percent of us, or three of us, do not stand above forty percent of us, or two of us. We are but five here". She said as she pointed those present. Satis, Chaxiraxi and Grundel were not included due to their apparently subordinate role.

"Obviously Mefitis, Chaxiraxi and other queens will not be part of the collective of the Goa'uld as our subordinates, they will enjoy the information if we deem necessary to give them that information, in the meantime, I think it is appropriate to get to work, not an empire rises again if we do not agree on how to act! " He concluded in turn Achaman looking Mefitis with sarcasm. A nod of Khnum calmed the ardor of the hand of the ruler of Echeyde from other unhappy jokes.

 There was reason for thought, there always was. Allienna knew that at some point this might prove difficult to get around with only so few of them gathered....for the moment. She had a plan though, she always did. "I shall address each point in its importance. First of all, as I said long ago Sobek any new technology we either develop ourselves or find by whatever means I for one will be sharing. I expect that will be the same for all of you." She was well aware that each of them were developing various different things without the collective knowledge. All of it must be laid out on the table.

 The second point might prove to be somewhat harder to get around. With that in mind she had a proposal. "Since we are so few, I am willing to propose this. Firstly, Lord Khnum, I would ask that you release Bastet to rejoin us. In doing so, I am asking from all of us, a full pardon for both Lord Ba'al and Morrigan. Both of these have pledged to me personally that they are prepared to work for the good of our collective and not their own interests if a pardon is granted. If this can be achieved, we then have three more on the council. Lastly, I am ceding all my holdings of Lucia to Grundel, elevating her to the same status as the rest of us."

 When this came out, Grundel bowed her head. She had suspected it, but not so soon. "I am honored my Queen." Still, for now she would take her place until things changed otherwise.

 "Lastly, in relation to our enemies, or at least those we perceive as such. I will say this, we cannot any longer in our weekend state afford to be belligerent. All those we know whom we recently allied with against the Destroyers are united in their own alliance. Attack one of them, and all of them will respond. We are vastly outnumbered as things stand for the moment."

"Getting at least interesting Alienna in Bastet effects on the planet currently resides called Bubastis Minor, my welcome guest as long as she wants .... But I can also ensure its complete freedom of movement, the rest is not serving me at least I know that I ! " He replied khnum looking sarcastically alienna the princess before him.

"I could drop bastet in exchange for some territorial concession, in fact some of the planets that Ra once controlled, would be very welcome, especially two of them, that always I would like them to come under the auspices of the Goa'uld in .... change would leave the solar system Byzantium, supervised by Bastet! " He concluded the Goa'uld watching the present and awaiting the response Alienna about it.

The crocodile god was in agreement with Mefitis and he hoped that discussion was over for the moment for he saw many other problems that needed to be finished with. The sharing of technology was going to hopefully serve them all well but they did indeed have to agree on what to achieve as a group.

Then it came the offer of Allienna to reinstate other system lords, this came as a surprise to him as he looked over at Khnum revealing how annoyed this matter made him. He had not struggled tirelessly to build his empire just so that others could have that right given to them like it was some gift to be bestowed for the sake of it existing this he had already discussed with Khnum at an earlier time.

A number of Bastet's holdings were now held by Khnum if he wished to give up his claims to these worlds the crocodile god would not argue, also the cat goddess had certainly done her best in the final days of the old order to fend off the threats, this he would pledge his support to if it were done in a way that was acceptable.

"I would be open to Bastet being granted her territory back perhaps the reclaiming of Bubastis would be in order." Suggested the crocodile god enjoying the idea of retaking the world.

The next matter was a pardon for Ba'al and Morrigan simply because they had pledged to Allienna their desire to support them. The crocodile god did let off a low growl that he was certain all could hear as he did his best not to grind his teeth.

"You would support a pardon for your own mother that you overthrew?." Had it not been a summit discussing their future he might have found the matter hilarious but the time for jokes had passed.

"I would be willing to grant her a chance to plead her case before us but I would decide nothing before then."

The matter of Ba'al was a most odd suggestion, did Allienna expect him to support such a pardon or was she attempting to go behind his back? Many of his territories also were owned now by Allienna giving rise to many new suspicions.

"I would sooner die then see our new collective become your play puppet Allienna." The crocodile god was not going to allow her to have every Goa'uld on the council having some reason to do her bidding.

Granting Grundel territory did not make her equal among them, indeed again it seemed Allienna had insulted them all the question was how many of them had actually realized it.
Raising his armoured left hand as a sign of protest he said what he needed to say.

"I believe you may want to reconsider your words." If Grundel was tied to Allienna's domain there would be no way she could become independent even when Ra had made his son a System lord he had seen to it that his son had earned the position.

He had no intention of allowing Allienna to get away with insulting their legacy and granting such privelaged earned positions to every Goa'uld that had something to offer her. If they were going to work together to restore their empire Goa'uld like Allienna needed to keep in mind that every decision could have lasting repercussions possibly lasting centuries and the crocodile god was very wary of the lasting effects granting pardons and raising others to the rank and title of System lord would create.

The request for khnum could look like a whim by the System Lords, but was a well-considered request in view of the future of the domain itself. Bubastis Minor and the entire solar system Byzantium did not have large resources and its abandonment would have been forthcoming anyway. In those years, Khnum had drawn much of the material available and had also benefited from the use of the latest Bast guards. Now the council had also proposed the reinsertion of the same even Bastet, as well as forgiveness to Goa'uld Morrigan and Ba'al. The latter two were not particolamente welcome to the majority of the council, but Khnum regarded them as a necessary evil to balance the same council. Without getting up in full, the System Lord spoke with his usual tone calm and peaceful.

"We will see the return of Bastet in the council, in the meantime I would like to know more and in detail the reasons why it should be readmitted into the collective Morrigan and even the same Ba'al, the rest of the story is clear with the latter, we can not trust him, then tell me why we should admit this person? " He concluded, smiling at Achaman, and looking  Alienna with  determination.

Allienna's proposals made Mefitis chuckle, drawing a big smile on her entertained face. "You intend to give a pardon to... the one you overthrew?". The irony was too much for her to contain. 
Regaining her calm, she decided to clarify her position. "We are meant to forgive the guilty, not the innocents, and as such your mother can't be forgiven. I will not participate in your farce".
She knew that this was a double attempt to both give a false merciful look and procure herself an easy ally. Morrigan, released from her prison, would have been a de facto underlord for her daughter, not a system lord in her own right.

The proposal to promote Grundel was likewise seen by Mefitis as yet another stratagem for the upstart to procure herself more puppets. Yes, she could see her devotion to her "sister" and their kinship in abnormality, she would have been her puppet as much as Morrigan would have been. Mefitis found Sobek's outrage at Allienna's nepotism appropriate and decided to openly support his position. "I am not in a position to oppose this, Allienna, but I suggest you to reconsider your proposal concerning your subordinate. I can see that there is more to it than kindness". The upstart had to know that she knew her intentions.

"But I'm in favour of giving my pardon to Ba'al and releasing Bastet, if I will be given guarantees that they will be entirely independent from anyone in this room". Mefitis snickered inside. Bastet still lived? She wouldn't have wanted to be Sobek in that moment.

 Remaining as calm as you could imagine, Allienna felt she was having to make concessions for the sake of their race, yet they could not see it that way, again leveling base accusations at her. She stood quietly, then left the summit without a word, Grundel following behind her.

The sudden exit of Alienna room, made the situation even more tense. Achaman and Khnum himself remained silent at first without saying something to prevent the home team to abandon the summit. But even that was part of the strategy implemented by Alienna to force the various members of the order, to cooperate and comply with his demands. Only after a few moments of uncertainty, the Khenem king, decided to speak.

"Alienna made his offer and demand at the same time and the same the rest of us, so we should decide what for the moment to offer in exchange for more ... for my part I offer full freedom to the Goa'uld Bastet and appreciate the opportunity to sit as our equal right from this meeting! " Sobek concluded leaving speechless.

"Releasing Bastet ... well we'll see what Sobek could invent to prevent the Goddess Cat complete what he started a long time ago!" He replied amused Achaman launching a dig to the sovereign of  the  planet Faiyum.

Sobek did his best to stay calm and collected as he remained seated at the table now in silence. Allienna had chosen to leave the meeting chamber without a word a move that left the crocodile god further filled with anger over the lack of any attempt at explaining her positions.
Regardless there were still others at the table and their choice to travel here and join them had hopefully not been a wasted venture. The crocodile god was unsure if and when Allienna would return but without her in the room he felt that it was up to him to now continue keeping the others engaged.

"I am sure you both are fully aware of my history with Bastet." He said calmly doing his best to not reveal his disdain they all knew he had.

"But I am no fool to not realise that our numbers are low." In truth the fact that so many were dead meant more power for the survivors to share but the answer to if they could reclaim their lost territory unified was yet to be revealed.

"We are in little position to decide who among us deserves to rule, what we need is a test." The crocodile god was well known for hosting many games on his worlds but this would require something more risky.

"If we are to grant territory to both old and new then they must prove their worth by some other means, perhaps to see them command an assault of some sort would be in order?" The crocodile god knew exactly what he wanted to see but he would only be able to see it to fruition if the others were in agreement.

"I wish to know if you each have decided to pledge yourselves to our shared cause, and if you will recognise each other's shared authority, we have a decision to make and that is if we will in fact honour the decisions of this collective, decisions that each of us will vote on just as our ancestors have done." The crocodile lord wanted to know if they were going to become a unified government or simply ignore each other's existence in the coming years.

"Perhaps if you were to each pledge that you will uphold not only our former laws but new ones imposed by us, perhaps then we could begin to discuss our military strategies and finally move upon our lost territory." Sobek in short needed to know if they were going to be with him when the call to arms finally came.

"If you will agree to this then I will speak to Allienna and attempt to convince her of the usefulness of our time spent here, I believe that she is potentially an important part to our future but also needs to respect that we each get a voice and our own parts to play in that same future." The crocodile god would attempt to reconcile matters with Allienna in an attempt at understanding but he also knew that she had her own plans and he was not about to pretend that Allienna held some deep love for those that were now left in the room.

"I think it is time we took a short break either I or Allienna will inform you if and when we are to continue I am aware you all have other places to be but it is most important we do not rush these proceedings." Sobek knew that if their new empire was going to last they needed to plan out everything down to the smallest detail.

So the host had left the guests alone without uttering a word. "Will she return?" Mefitis asked to herself. "Of course she will", she answered inside. She thought for a moment to the things she said. Absurd, now she was being pressed into feeling guilty. She turned her attention to Sobek to distract herself from her own manners.

"Of course I will uphold our old laws and the new ones. And of course I am not against the enlargement of our ranks in principle". Her hand reached the side of her forehead. She could not believe she was stating such obviousnesses.

She quickly reassumed her composure. "But this new council cannot become a single person's monopoly either. What can possibly happen if you liberate your own mother that you imprisoned and give her a position of authority? I am not talking about giving her a feud, underlords do have feuds, but the power to decide the future of our societies. Why, of course she will be loyal to you to the end out of both gratitude and sheer desire to not be sent back to prison, supporting each and every decision of yours. Without mentioning that you cannot forgive the innocents, and in imprisoning her own mother Allienna showed nothing but dishonour. Now she intends to use her. It is why I opposed the proposal to 'pardon' Morrigan". Hopefully, her point was clear to everyone in the room. If someone was hearing from outside... ah well. She did not intend to explain anything. Her opinion was meant to be clear.

"The same can be said about her subordinate, but I am not in position to oppose that. It is ultimately her decision and I can only accept it". Grudgingly.

"Then I am sure there is hope yet for our kind." Said Sobek pleased that they could agree on some things

"They should be brought before us to be judged and allowed to explain Their actions of we are to be convinced of considering the pardons, many others have proven more loyal why would we make the same mistakes as our predecessors." Sobek was confused why this was to be the case.

"Her subordinate has certainly not done anything to please me." He said recalling that she never treated him with respect.

"We must be patient and make sure our chosen moves are done with precision." The crocodile god then rose from the table his robe flowing down to the floor.

"Perhaps it may be worth finding out how good her cooks are aboard this station." He suggested feeling a bit hungry himself but knowing finding Allienna was more important as he moved for the door way hoping they would only need a short break before continuing.

"The idea of ​​raising its own subordinated not a matter entirely new .... the rest here present Achaman, it was for u certain period of time, my underlord and now sits with dignity in this advice, as a member and System Lord !
" exclaimed khnum looking at the present and showing how a underlord could become one of the all new effects System Lord.

"Many of you do not believe in this possibility, but as you can see, Achaman not only is the obvious example, but enjoys her total freedom and there is no my ancestry in its work, so I support the proposal to raise the rank System Lords, the Goa'uld Grundel! " concluded by looking at the present, some disgruntled, other prohibitions on the choice that was their proposal.

"As for Bastet, the question is simple, its release could break some balance, but it must be a majority to want it and without Alienna we can not vote!" He concluded knowing that the last point would split the assembly.

 Footsteps echoed through the hall as the figures of both Allienna and her sister returned. No longer in armor, both wore the black gowns of Morrigan's Royal house; a lineage that went back to the ancient Celtic tribes of Earth of almost 2,000 years ago. "Forgive us for our absence, as you can see there was something we had to do. I thought this may go smoother if you saw us both as we should be seen." Allienna wore the Queen's diadem on her brow, Grundel the smaller one of a Princess of the royal line.

Throughout the summit, Khnum had never spoken to her Lo'taur until then. With a barely perceptible gesture of the hand, the Goa'uld called the attention of his most trusted human slave. Approaching the Goa'uld, the young man waited in silence.

"Bring me immediately Bastet, if my son does matters, also use force if necessary!" He exclaimed with barely a whisper. A slight movement of the head and Lo'taur, walked out of the conference room, heading for the big external circular gallery. He saw passing in the distance and the same Alienna Grundel and bowed in reverence before opening a ball device in your hand. Jaffa do not see what the other side responds, but we see the lo'taur nod and store the communication sphere in the small pocket and back into the summit hall.

She was about to intervene when Allienna and Grundel returned, not as leaders of an army but as queens. Barring the unpoliteness of absenting themselves without saying a word for such futile reasons, she didn't see the point. Were they trying to say that they were like them? She thought they had got over that, the matters they were discussing were different.

"Welcome back". There was coldness to her tone, as if she was obliging to a formality.

The return of the two Goa'uld queens, did not seem random at present and the same Achaman noticed seeing the look of understanding between the two queen. Certainly the collective could stand, but he would not at that time, what interested the audience, was to create a political structure, economic and military town, so that we can establish a plan for future times. Looking at the present, Achaman felt the weight and the chill in the words of the same Mefitis. a Goa'uld who did not know, but that clearly was decidedly adverse to too drastic changes in society millennial Goa'uld. Although he hated to say to himself, Alienna seemed oriented towards the future while the present were still anchored to the old style of leadership. To make matters worse, Khnum had endorsed the return of Bastet in the circle of the System Lords, and this could be a problem. Avoiding further question, even Achaman decided to welcome the return of the two queens.

"At last you have come back, I believe that soon the collective will see the arrival of a new member and as for Grundel, I'm happy for your promotion!" He concluded with obvious falsehoods in his words. Khnum surveyed the scene, it was not unusual to see Achaman prostrate on enemies above him, only to stab them from behind.

 For the first time Grundel spoke through her symbiote, a voice none of them bar Allienna had hear, a voice that was filled with power. "Mefitis, you of all here have been the most doubtful of both myself and Allienna's standing among the Goa'uld, in fact among those seated here. I will set the record straight for you, so therefore removing all doubt." She paused a moment, receiving a nod from Allienna to continue. "We are both the scion of one of the oldest Queens of our kind, we were brought into existence for a single purpose, to rebuild our race from the ashes it had descended into over the last decade. That you and indeed all of you are aware that Morrigan was taken from her throne by her own daughter, both symbiote and host is only a part of it. She knew it was to come, she had planned for it, her only flaw being typical of our kind that she had overstepped her own ego in thinking she could bring Ba'al down on her own. She failed, which meant she failed all of us and she knew there was a price to pay. Knowing she was all too complicit in his own schemes to betray us all much earlier made things worse."

 As if it were coming from one mind, Allienna continued. Of course they had planned this between themselves, just as any human sisters would. "By removing her at this point, we were able to give back hope to our kind. Her plans at the time meant destruction for all us, had she gone ahead or been allowed to, we would not be sitting here having this discussion." Her bright eyes looked at all of them, she unlike Grundel was still speaking through her host. "You ask why we should allow both her and Ba'al to rejoin us? Quite simply because despite how we all feel about them, we need them, we need their knowledge and I will say this, both of them have been quite humble in seeing the error of their ways." There was more to the young Queen that any of them gave her credit for, save Khnum. "They will have no voice in the council. Grundel, will speak of her own mind. Once she is established in Lucia, she will be as independent as all of us." There was one last sticking point for Mefitis. "I propose that there be no one leader among us, we shall all serve upon this council in equal capacity. Territorial disputes can be settled by a vote." The other matters she would address after further discussion. One of those of course was the doubt from Sobek and Mefitis in relation to how she saw the human race.

The words just heard not surprised Khnum and Achaman, both Goa'uld have long imagined that the board Goa'uld, does not have a single representative, but that each member would have equal rights and freedom of action in it. Moreover since he was dead Ra, the Council of System Lords, had comportanto in the same way although under a clear influence of the Goa'uld Cronus, Apophis and finally the Ba'al himself. The latter could always be a danger to the collective.

"I am aware of our mistakes, if the current situation so require, no vetoes will advance on my part about the hierarchy and the council's control, my only concern is our safety, currently our borders are extremely weak and our fragmentation of the thousands of small kingdoms, often individual planets, could create serious problems for the future! " He concluded Achaman watching those present. After all, the ruler of the planet Echeyde, had always been the one who had had more problems in the confines of his domain.

"Moreover, the return of these Goa'uld, poses a problem ... which planets will govern autonomously?" Achaman expressed his disappointment looking at the present and especially Alienna.

Sobek finally returned to the table to join Allienna in discussing the many topics they were yet to decide on. He was willing still to listen though he hoped that they were going to make the best decision for all Goa'uld. The gowns the two wore were far more suitable for the summit and they again seemed to be calm. Sobek decided to let Allienna begin speaking again, the crocodile god was eager to see to it the summit was a complete success.

"I suppose it was best that you removed her if she was not ruling for the good of our kind." Sobek wondered why Morrigan had done what she had but presumed it was because she had been corrupted by the many issues the old council had faced.

"I am willing to offer them the chance to stand before us and ask for forgiveness, it is clear to me that they would most likely possess information we require if it is useful to us it may well lead to convincing me to pardon them." Sobek desired greatly to hear Ba'al most of all beg him for a pardon, that traitor was lucky Sobek had not got to him first.

"It is customary for an official vote to decide if one should join our ranks, it would put us at ease if you allowed such a vote to take place" He was sure that Grundel would be voted in regardless but it was a custom that was to be respected by all of them, after all how could he respect one that did not respect their traditions.

In truth none of them had been voted into this council but the way he saw it all of them had proven themselves in command of rebuilding their own domains, if Grundel was to join them it was their responsibility to ensure that today their rules were once again enforced starting with Grundel. From there all new members of the council should seek the votes of the current councils membership.

"I agree, right now we need free thinking and creativity a sole leader would merely go against that and cause unnecessary distractions and arguments." The crocodile god would never be against becoming supreme System lord himself but realized that none of them were in a position to replace Ra and trying to force such a move would merely divide them further.

"Achaman is correct the holes in our defences must be filled, some members of this council are far more shorter on resources then others, although it should not be too difficult for our defence fleets to work together and I have no doubt that anyone of us here would fail to send a fleet should any other fall under attack." Sobek knew that Achaman and Mefitis were weaker then the rest of them but he was unsure if the donation of ships would be appropriate after all he had no desire to make them appear weak in front of the others.

"I have no desire to interfere with how others rule their territories and I expect no such interference in return, if a pardon was given to either Ba'al or Morrigan I would still be hesitant to grant them any important worlds that they could potentially use to betray us with and a close eye would have to be kept upon them, Khnum's offer of Bubastis minor to Bastet is his own decision one that I would not personally offer but perhaps it would do some good." Sobek was not sure if he could tolerate Bastets presence on the council but for the sake of their race he was willing to attempt it.

Grundel's version was patently ignored by Mefitis, the idea that a queen would spawn children with the intention of being overthrown by them was unbelievable to her. And they were certainly not there to speak of their lives, she thought they had got over it.
Allienna was making the juicier point, giving herself checks and balances on her power. A council of equals, now that was something Mefitis was looking forward to. The idea of giving a pardon to someone who was likely innocent still disgusted her, but the compensation was more than worth it.
"I have no objections". She then turned towards Sobek. "And I support Lord Sobek's proposals. Let them come, we will hear what they have to say, and we will act accordingly". She already had the verdict in mind.

Recognizing Grundel as a System Lord and accepting her in the council would have meant giving Allienna an ally, but the prospect of one ally for her was far more reassuring than the prospect of three of them, and besides, there were already three de facto blocs there. How would she have dealt with the spawning was entirely her issue so, in the end... why not? She did not intend to look like an obstructionist, but it was clear that the two saw her as such. Concessions were in order.

Ha'tak the ship was out of hyperspace by a few minutes and the room in which there were the Goa'uld, they could clearly see a ray from the top of Ha'tak, directed at their station. Khnum smiled, Bastet had arrived at the station earlier than expected, after all the new hyperspace engines, was much more efficient than those provided hitherto in Ha'tak. The other Goa'uld understood what was going to happen from there a few moments, all of Sobek was most concerned about. Silence fell in the hall waiting for Bastet made his triumphant return. the sound of footsteps and Sobek including, a chair had been added in the meantime from human bondage to the new host station.

"Lady Bastet!" He exclaimed one of the human servants officer present to stating the various Goa'uld and their rank. Bastet appeared in all its simplicity and beauty disarming, beside him two Bast Guards as well as its Lo'taur, the young Nefermiw.

"I am honored that you have requested my presence in the new collective Goa'uld, I have many things to offer, we want to proceed?" He said Bastet showing determination as well as an unparalleled charm.

"Welcome Bastet, normally we would never have authorized your return, especially in light of recent events, but now the situation also demanded your presence for the new order and the re-establishment of the Empire Goa'uld, something that we could not do without broad consensus, we are currently discussing on the readmission of Ba'al, on raising to the rank of System Lord of Alienna and forgiveness of the same Ba'al to the board ... "

"I can not deny that not all are happy of your return, or rather at least two have opposed this request, but it is also necessary that you do on the board!" Khnum concluded addressing the Goa'uld sitting between Grundel and Mefitis.

 "Still not convinced of me yet Mefitis?" Grundel said inwardly. It was of little consequence to her anyway, as a new comer to their realm, Mefitis was still an outsider, someone to be trusted at arms length until she had proven herself to their cause, as had both Allieanna and Grundel herself.

 But when Bastet arrived finally, the two youngest members of this new council did the most amazing thing. With all three of them dressed in black, it could be conceived that there was some relationship here. For indeed there was, Bastet had been Allenna and Grundel's mentor in that time it was realized Morrigan was about to turn on all of them. They both approached from either side, dipping to a half curtsy as each took a hand of Bastet, kissing the top. Allienna looked up, speaking softly. "It has been far too long, you are back where you belong now."

"
Yes, my lady !
" whispered just Bastet without the other Goa'uld besides Alienna they hear. Khnum watched and understood but not dissse anything, Sobek was visibly worried as he tried to maintain a calm appearance. Achaman smiled reviewing the queen for which he had always felt something beyond the admiration. Bastet slowly sat down on his chair and took the floor first.

"It has been many years since the empire fell, I myself was a victim of Ba'al, he believed to have me killed, but both me and Olokun we survived and in my case I was able to reconstruct at least part of my power, I have an army and a fleet, although small, but you know that the Bastet Claws, can become lethal weapons ... "

"... I was required to go back, in fact I was forced, I would still do in the future when I could compete extensively with your own strength, but perhaps now is already the indicated time, this summit will center our progress making the Goa'uld again a military and technological power in the milky Way, from my part, i can offer you the use of Letopolis planet for the construction of your Ha'tak date, in exchange controi actively fight our enemies putting aside the battles for my ambition to control the Goa'uld all! " He concluded looking up and smiling mischievously at the same Sobek.

"Fine words ... Bastet typical of those who want to impress positively, but we really know the actual power and possibilities that you can offer to the collective, currently only Alienna and Khnum can impose its line, but wisely did not make anything. .. "he replied sarcastically Achaman while Bastet turned toward him almost disgusted.

Well, she certainly came in little time. But then again, Mefitis had heard of hyperspace engines capable of crossing intergalactic space within hours. The advancements that she lost in all that time of hiding...
She had heard of her alliance with Kali and their backstabbing of Sobek, and apparently she had even cheated death at the hands of Ba'al's super soldiers. A cunning character, that Mefitis could not help but respect. Even her vessel was beautiful.

"A pleasure, Lady Bastet". Mefitis didn't hide her high regard for the cat in her greeting. She only hoped to not be disappointed by her.

Sobek had asked many questions and asked for many things but for the moment at least all was forgotten as the cat goddess entered the summit chamber acting like she was entitled to rejoin them. He would be lying if he did not desire to see her killed or at least tortured to some extent though he knew for the moment she was supposedly here to offer them useful information.

"Bastet." He said not fully convinced that she deserved it.

Sobek was indeed familiar with the fleets that Bastet once controlled though she always seemed to be able to count on Kali's support. Now she did not have Kali and did not have Ra's will governing over them.

"I would hope Bastet has survived for the purpose of helping us lead our kind to victory." Sobek studied the cat goddess looking for any hint of possible hatred or surprise toward him being here.

 What Bastet didn't reveal for which both younger women were relieved about was the fact that it was the Cat Queen herself who had shown them how to rule, how to lead and how to survive, all the while making sure that Morrigan was totally unaware of what was going on around her. It was a game of cat and mouse at times with the then eighteen and sixteen year old girls having to sneak away on a Tel'tak to meet with Bastet on some remote secured world. With her now seated, the sisters took their places again.

 "Very well then, all who shall be and should be here are present. We shall return to the discussion at hand. Bastet, just prior to your arrival were talking about Ba'al and Morrigan both. I have suggested that a full pardon be granted them, under certain conditions of course. As to what worlds they should govern? I have given this some thought, I propose for the short term until their faithfulness can be assured that they serve a term as Governor on a minor planet under the domain of any one of us. Yet since it could be seen as complicity if it were one of my own, I will forfeit that right."

Bastet listened with interest to what had just been reported, the rest of the council was to find a solution to balance the disproportionate power of Alienna in terms of both galactic and military. Khnum had the second largest fleet currently available, but he had decided to collaborate and the rest knew that a war against the same Alienna, could be solved with the total annihilation of his faction and the annexation of the little they still had saved. But the question of Morrigan and Ba'al seemed much more urgent than he had imagined. Calmly and seemingly without much effort in wanting to communicate their ideas, Bastet addressed the present.

"I agree ...  forgiveness for Morrigan, she has surrendered to Ba'al because forced and at the same time, as vile and cowardly, while she surrendered to the forces of Baal were marching against me and Olokun, winning a battle after the other, i would recommend to relegate her to one of the minor planets that once ruled and prevent him from using the sarcophagi scattered around the former domains, at least we will not lose himself in case he decides to rebel! " He concluded making his eyes sparkle.

"Would be a possible solution, the rest of Morrigan in the past has used this characteristic, or changing host according to the planet, to hire even different identities depending on the occasion ... would suggest the planet Eriu as a place to establish it in a stable manner if do you agree?" He completed in turn Khnum looking at the present in their waiting for a response.

The crocodile god did not fail to notice Bastet and Allienna were not speaking for the first time that much was obvious. He had little time to ponder where and in what situation they could have met each other prior but at least in young Allienna's case it must have been fairly recent.

"I am yet to be convinced this decision is in our best interests." Sobek did not like giving traitors chances to regain power.

He did not trust Bastet and was certain if she had the chance she would dig her claws into him yet she hid such desires well. He needed to be focused on far more important matters then forgiveness of those that did not deserve it.

"How about we send them together to rule over the planet Tarvis." The crocodile god grinned at the thought of that happening though he hated the presumption they would already be pardoned.

It was military campaigns that Sobek desired to discuss not waste their time with those that had already fallen from grace. He already was again questioning why Allienna even brought up such subjects if she seemed to have made the decision herself, he needed to get the summit on the correct path.

"If you were to allow them to govern your worlds without our pardon you would be seen as protecting criminals, as was sald before the only way is to bring them before us and allow them the chance to swear to us of their supposed changed ways." Sobek wanted them to help that was for certain but he was not about to let them govern any of his worlds that much was also to be sure certain.

"I believe that having them fight on the ground with the Jaffa would be a far more suitable position for them to earn my trust." Having them do so would show just how willing to serve their new order they truly were.

"The question however of what will be my vials domain is all yet to be decided, in recent times I have plundered many minor Goa'uld, taking aa each of them, Jaffa technologies and slaves for the planet Tarvis, but honestly I realized that this policy is not leading to positive results, I have several rebellions or rather clashes between different Jaffa I have gathered under my auspices ... the idea would be the solar system Byzantium, already started and ready to receive me! " He concluded the same Bastet watching with obvious and subtle arrogance present. Khnum was expecting a dialectic so sharp daa part of bastet and not replied sarcastically.

"In fact that solar system is ready, but in return you Bastet what you offer in terms of territory?" I reply instead Achaman.

 They had brought up points she had already touched on, which were valid points and it was good to know they could all agree on some things. That Bastet was now part of the debate heartened Allienna to, as even now she would still remember those times of not so long ago when the Cat Goddess was guiding the sisters. She bowed her head to all of them in recognition of their input, speaking at last as Grundel looked to the older sister for her own guidance. "It shall be done. Within the next two hours, both Ba'al and Morrigan shall face us, to plea bargain for their redemption. How that ends will depend on the extent of lies they may or may not offer us. Our position will be to see through any veil of deception."

And so Allienna had agreed to send for the two rogues. That presumedly was the end of that matter for now. Most of what needed to be said had been done so already in terms of them and Bastet herself, Khnum was all too happy to give Bastet one of his star systems which he still found slightly odd though perhaps it was more to do with keeping her somewhere he could more easily keep an eye on her a risk all the same in his mind. He turned to Mefitis aware that she would potentially be interested in knowing more about their enemy.

"Queen Mefitis would you like me to show you some images a small friendly gesture to provide further details of our enemies vessels for when the time comes that you face them?" He knew that facing them eventually was an inevitability.

"I have become quite aware of a number of their vessels and I will not hesitate to share such knowledge." The information would naturally be sent to her ship along with a few worlds that he knew the other races held just in case.

"I will give the El'dari one thing, they are not as primitive and mindless as the humans." Sobek was still unhappy they had moved into their galaxy and taken territory without seeking the permission of the rightful owners of said galaxy.

They would have some preparation time after the summit but who truly knew how much time they would have, in such a short time the damage done to their empire would take time to mend but clearly so much change was already being thrust upon them. He understood the more finer workings of constructing it all but he was worried Bastet would merely end up just as Morrigan had once done. Now he would attempt to inform Mefitis and potentially Achaman of their enemies weapons of war for the coming days they would face them on the battlefield, of course both Allienna, Khnum and he supposed Grundel and Bastet were free to offer any advice they knew of. Sobek had not failed to take note of some of the tactics the other races used, the Tau'ri in particular were a most interesting case.

"If Allienna would not mind I would also like to discuss weapons, tactics and possibly even what I know of our enemies cultures and beliefs as heretical as they are." The crocodile god knew only so much as he cared about their beliefs but he recognised it could provide potential vulnerabilities available to them to use.

"I would be interested in observing the questioning of Ba'al, the rest of the Goa'uld is a skilled manipulator of consciences, even the Goa'uld, could also manipulate his confession and bend your will, so I ask to assist you. ... of course if you can? " suddenly asked Achaman wonderful present. Few of them knew that the two System Lords, there had been a tumultuous history, perhaps only a few Khnum.

The idea of judging an innocent still entertained her, and Grundel hadn't done enough to convince her of Morrigan's supposed treachery. Since when are strategic mistakes treachery?
Morrigan and Ba'al would be brought there shortly, but for the time being Mefitis decided to just play along.
Now Sobek was offering an interesting argument. There was always wisdom in the maxim "Know your enemy".
"Show us". She had heard of the advancements of these cousins of the Asgard, she expected anything.

<9 Level Meeting Chamber>

 The noise of marching Jaffa reached the inner chamber, it stretched out in time as if it would go on forever until one of Allienna's senior Guards stepped forward to announce. "The former System Lords Ba'al and Morrigan request entry to the chamber, who speaks for them?" She was stern faced, a typical Leopard Guard with a deep scorn for all things male.

(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/NewAvi3_zps4c35dcfb.png)

 Allienna stood to face them, as yet they were behind a bulwark of guards, she could though vaguely see the top of her mother's flame red hair. "I will speak for them, let them pass."

 Boots snapped as they turned in two lines facing inwards, forming an open pathway for the Goa'uld to walk in unhindered. As they came to the end of the table, they both bowed low. "Thank you for your audience Queen Allienna, we are honored to be in such esteemed presence." As usual, when down Ba'al could snivel with the best of them. Morrigan merely looked at each one of them with some kind of inner disdain.

 (http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Grundel_zpsoczvpwca.png)

 "Why have you come before us?" It was routine, they all new why, Grundel was merely following tradition.

 At this point Morrigan looked at her younger daughter squarely in the eyes. "To seek pardon for our crimes." There appeared to be a slight sadness to those eyes.

 With a wave of her hand, Grundel told them. "Come forward in peace, be seated wherever you choose."

 Both of them looked at one another, were they surprised? They weren't showing it. A guard on opposite sides of the table pulled out a chair for both, at the far end the table to be sure, showing their much lower status in the way of things now.

Before Sobek could begin it seemed the former trouble makers had arrived. Allienna continued to every now and again ignore certain things that he suggested but then he expected little less. She even offered them seats with which to join them not even hinting she cared what the others thought. He chose to eye both of the strange arrivals watching how they reacted to their current situation.

Both Morrigan and Ba'al had as of now lost everything to Allienna who had recently finished taking Lucia a world that he knew had for some time been used as a strange tool for his purposes. In truth Sobek could not deny Ba'al was intelligent but his lack of loyalty made him near useless to their cause. The crocodile god knew they wanted to gain back their power, Ba'al himself had once been second to Anubis and had then been at the forefront of the Jaffa rebellions wrath this meant Ba'al had betrayed them all to rise to new heights only to come crashing down to where he was now, most pathetic to say the least. Now Sobek had to decide what he wanted to do with them certainly questioning was in order but they could sit there for now, keeping those loyal and honourable informed was more important right now, they would have to wait their turn though if they had any information to convince Sobek to pardon them now would be the time to begin bringing it up.

"We were about to discuss our enemies in more finer detail, if you have anything to add it would be appreciated." He then ran the thoughts through his mind considering what order to discuss their enemies in.

"Allow me to begin with our age old enemy the rebellious spawn of Egeria." Of course everybody knew who they were and no holographic image was necessary.

"The Tok'ra have been hunted down mercilessly however they chose to ally themselves with the Tau'ri and the rebel Jaffa, now they control a reasonable size fleet of motherships but choose to stick to their insurgent ways it is for this reason we must continue to be wary of new Goa'uld we do not know, background checks on all Goa'uld that flock to us in the future should be mandatory." The Goa'uld knew the Tok'ra had continued to play their kin against each other that would hopefully no longer be the case.

"The Jaffa rebellion." Said Sobek as an image of a helmetless serpent guard appeared on the middle of the table

"From what we have been able to gather the rebel Jaffa movement as we know it began in Apothis's ranks, it is unknown why he allowed this rebellion to grow but we do know that the world of Chulak is where this took place and that the Tau'ri are largely responsible for assisting Chulak in rebelling against their benevolent gods." Sobek wondered just how bad a ruler Apothis must have been to have his Jaffa hate him as much as they did.

"Another group known as the Hak'tyl resistance made up of female Jaffa who once served Moloc also caused some trouble finally managing to kill him, Moloc was a fool to be sure." Sobek did not know what had been wrong with Moloc but that Goa'uld had clearly been mad.

"It is interesting to note that the following death of Ra's son Heru'ur at the hands of Apothis and Cronus who the Tau'ri have taken responsibility for further lead to the increasing of the rebel Jaffa ranks, indeed the former system lord council never saw it fit to deal with this instead they merely chose to squabble among themselves." Three of the old council were now here and he wanted to make sure they understood their mistakes and hoped if they were pardoned they would not do the same again.

"The free Jaffa nation as they call themselves though I question how free the fools truly are now control a vast amount of territory in the galaxy as well as a large amount of our fleet, they must be brought back under control or exterminated before they do something else that leads to widespread galactic destruction." Sobek wanted to make a point of just how dangerous they were and he knew just how to prove it as the hologram changed to an image of the Dakara super weapon.

"Some of you are familiar with this and some of you have heard it only in legend, the Dakara super weapon was known to have existed for some time and it was even used as I understand to defeat the replicator threat, the free Jaffa used this weapon on human worlds wiping entire planets clean of human life, the Jaffa are warriors they were not designed by us to rule and therefore they must be stopped, before any of you ask the weapon was destroyed by the Ori." Sobek knew the Jaffa were there responsibility if they all had to be exterminated then that was what had to be done to ensure galactic stability.

Sobek wanted to give them all a chance to not only come to terms with the information they had learned but also to ask themselves questions, such questions only lead to answers and knowledge would only lead to power for them all. Next was the most troublesome human rebellion to date and he had to admit the Tau'ri were good at making a spectacle of themselves.

The Tau'ri." He said as a hologram showed Earth in its splendour glory from space.

"The humans of the Tau'ri." He said as a Tau'ri warrior appeared in the equipment of an SG team member.

"In such a short amount of time this particular nuisance has sought our complete destruction, I am aware they are in fact responsible for killing Ra as well as explained earlier a number of other Goa'uld including Cronus." Sobek did not know how such primitives had achieved so much though it was obvious the rest of his kind had largely underestimated them.

"As many of you know their weapons are extremely primitive in nature, they use weapons that fire metal as opposed to the energy that our weapons produce." This was of course as basic as it got but even other human rebellions in the past had used far more advanced technology even ma'chello had been one for designing new technologies to fight them.

They tend to scout worlds using four man teams though they usually avoid our more heavily fortified worlds they usually will attempt convincing local populations that they are being oppressed even though we have given these humans worlds that are safe and mostly leave them in peace to live as they choose, the Tau'ri will attempt to assassinate you if you give them the chance." Humans were such a primitive barbaric species yet the Goa'uld still cared for them as if they were their own children.

"More information on our enemies will be sent to your vessels for you to further review in your own time as well as the variety of weapons the Tau'ri are known to employ against us." Sobek did not desire time to be wasted the types of ballistic weapons the humans used though he hoped the others would seek to learn it in their own time.

"Because of our now dead enemies the Asgard, the Tau'ri now have a fleet with vessels that rival our own, they seem to wish to cast the galaxy into chaos and stick for the most part to their own world, this behaviour is very strange though we know from spies that much of their world does not even know life exists beyond their solar system, indeed it seems the leaders of the Tau'ri keep everything they do a secret from their fellow humans, and their planet is not even united as they still war amongst themselves for control of one measly planet, such is the life of a species with such ignorance and such a short term life span." Sobek was shocked when he finally understood this information but it was not a joke and had to be taken seriously.

"These humans were given the secrets of the Asgard in secret and have built up a fleet in secret from their own people, this is a weakness that we can exploit multiple ways as I understand Ba'al here has already had experience in." It was no surprise that Ba'al had been known for spending more time then most with the Tau'ri.

"The humans primary vessel known as the BC-304 as they call it acts as a small vessel originally good for little more then transport and would not have stood up to our Hatak's for more then a few minutes." Sobek brought up a hologram of the vessel next to a Hatak to show them the size comparison.

"With the upgrades of the Asgard they now have beaming as well as beam weapons a weapon the Asgard created to replace their ion cannons that we all know too well, do not under any circumstances underestimate these vessels their weaponry will easily rip through our Hatak's shields, my advice would be to engage with greater numbers if you can though a direct engagement is preferably avoided." The Goa'uld knew all too well there was more then just one way to win a war.

"Recently it was revealed the Tau'ri have created a larger more powerful vessel this information will also be sent to your ships, remember the Tau'ri fleet is extremely small if any of their vessels are sighted you can be sure they are up to something important." Sobek knew keeping tabs on the location of the Tau'ri ships would prove useful when deciding when to strike.

"The El'dari supposed cousins of the Asgard, more recently they have been colonising worlds in our galaxy and in our weakened state we have been unable to stop this from occurring, it is my understanding they currently wish to ignore us however they can not be allowed to stay, much like the Asgard they use ion cannons and beaming technology, for now I advise refrain from contact though if they do attack us it would be best that we all be informed, they also seem to have their own human slave army who call themselves the kelts they may too cause problems." The crocodile god knew the El'dari were hiding secrets from them and he certainly could not deny he wanted to seek them out.

He hoped the others were now fairly caught up on what they were up against and just how much. Indeed it seemed all the galaxy were against them but the Goa'uld were both strong and intelligent and could surely turn this around. All they had to do was work together and their new empire under their united rule would flourish but they had to trust that Sobek could lead this war.

"Good knowledge of you to Sobek, the rest of you stay hidden long enough to observe and evaluate our enemies, your analysis is correct for each of our main enemies, especially for the Tau'ri, their weapons they are primitive but effective unlike our much more advanced, yet even the Tau'ri as you have shown a weakness, their privacy to their own people! " He completed in turn khnum interrupting the crocodile god.

"What are you proposing Khnum?" He asked curiously Achaman knowing full well that if the ruler of Khenem had said those words, it was because he had an idea of ​​how to exploit the weakness of the enemy.

"We have created the Tau'ri, we still hold on the population, certainly millennia religion we created goes out and took over the culture of the one God ... and if suddenly we revealed our presence to the people themselves, panic would break out and almost nothing they could do to stem the Tau'ri rebellion over the entire surface of the planet! " He concluded Khnum smiling at present knowing full well that such an idea would be supported by Ba'al.

"As far as el'dari are happy to inform you that one of them betrayed their own people during the last war in which we were for short-term allied with them, my faithful son joined a El'dari and it has sprung a partnership that is leading to significant results in technological and biological research El'dari the race! " He completed knowing that such news might have to blow the audience down from his seat.

"We are currently exploring a technology that inhibits mind reading by El'dari, the study of applications unfortunately is slow but promising!" He concluded, smiling at present remained in absolute silence.

So, there they were. Mefitis had but distant memories of these two goa'uld, she could recall seeing them a few times millenia earlier before her self-imposed exile. And now she had to judge them, people who she barely even knew. She couldn't help it, knowing that these two former powers were now at her mercy made her feel good. She felt no ill will towards them, but the pride inside... it burned like a fire in the forest.

She recomposed herself and finally turned towards them. "I bid you welcome". A polite smile on her face. Genuine, for once.

"So... Lord Ba'al and Lady Morrigan. Of what are you accused?". Her hands met with fingers crossing eachother, covering her mouth. There was no attempt to hide her curiosity.

 With some degree of interest both Morrigan and Ba'al listened while Sobek did his best to relate his knowledge of the galaxy as he saw it. For now neither were in a position to comment until such time as they had been accepted into the fold so to speak. You could see in Allienna's eyes to she was taking it quite off the shoulder, perhaps she knew more than the Crocodile gave her credit for. Certainly she did know a lot more about both the Tauri and the El'Dari than the information he had passed.

 Grundel still had that 'annoyed' look on her face; there was another matter at hand before they could get too deeply into galactic discussions, that involved her mother and the former System Lord. "Yes, pray do speak of the reason you seek pardon from us." She emphasized the us, no one was going to take that away from her, least of all Mefitis.

 Morrigan spoke first. "Four years ago I consorted with several of our brethren to bring a forced rule onto our kind behind the backs of the established order. In this I was instrumental in carrying out several assassinations, passing information to our enemies and finally, with Lord Ba'al, ensuring that the Tauri were in a position to destroy the remaining System Lords leaving only the two of us to divide the spoils. I was removed by my own kin..." She looked directly at Allienna, not with hate but with a kind appreciation. "...just in time before the plane could be enacted." No apology, simple facts.

 Then Ba'al spoke up. "I was implicit in all these actions and worse. I used the Tauri to gain access to the Orici of the Ori, then turned that knowledge on my own kind, to such an extent I had created clones of myself to wreak havoc across the galaxy, failing to realize that divided we were worse of than ever. If someone is to take responsibility for our current circumstances it it I alone."


 The young Queen merely nodded. They so far had not said anything that amounted to deception. So far.

"It seems clear the reasons for which both of you have been brought to trial before the new System Lords, you are in fact guilty to all the effects of the faults imputed to you ... the board has to decide whether to close a painful chapter forgoing you, or if you forgive and even treat yourself to sit with us and govern your realm, that no matter how small sitting may be, is always something to leave as zero! " concluded in turn the System Lord Khnum is Morrigan looking in the eyes, that the same Baal.

"Personally I would give you the opportunity to remedy your damage, but what about the other System Lords, I can not guarantee, I get back to the board for final decision, albeit with Ba'al I've just opened an account!" He replied in turn Achaman.

As Morrigan spoke, Mefitis slowly recomposed herself, horrified and bewildered at the actions described by the red woman. To contribute to the destruction of an entire civilization... for crumbs, the rubble that remained. So many plots, so much thought... for so little. Stupidity.

Ba'al mentioned an "orici". A machine? A better vessel? Hok'tar, perhaps? In either case, what the Ori produced was power, and to not turn that power, whatever it was, on the one people that was bringing down the Goa'uld was yet another act that reeked of stupidity. What was he trying to accomplish? Was he sticking to a warped canaanite idea of kavod, of honor? Unbelievable.

Her hand reached her forehead. What to do with these two?

She finally set about to mortify them. "You are both accusing yourselves of grave crimes. Make no mistake, I am not unable to think from other points of view, I am certain that part of your plotting had a good reason to be. You were seeking power, something which I cannot condemn at priori, but you passed a red line in thinking that you could use the the Tau'ri to your advantage. We traditionally waged war, overt and covert, with the purpose of subjugating and besting each other, keeping as much of the enemy resources and infrastructure as possible so that it could be used to our advantage. But you... you unleashed upon us a civilization that wages war with the purpose of destroying the enemy, leaving nothing but rubble". An innovation that brought them all to that situation.

Finally, she reacquired her inquisitive curiosity. "So, considering your past actions, what makes you think that, despite everything, you should still be forgiven?".

"The crimes you entered are so many that we begin to lose on the list ... but as far as I'm concerned, the work of Ba'al during the threat of Orii was aimed at safeguarding the galaxy although the method is not to my liking, I must admit chee was probably the only one who really tried to do something to repair the damage done by the Tau'ri! " He said Achaman looking at the present and especially Bastet. The latter openly despised the Goa'uld who at that time was judged.

"This, however, is but a clumsy attempt to regain her something, the Tau'ri have solved the problem in the end as they had created it and that's the only thing that matters in the end!" Bastet said, returning his gaze to Achaman.

Having little choice Sobek brought his attention back to the traitors, they were certainly drawing a lot of attention and perhaps for good reason. He let out a small laugh that he tried his best to contain when Ba'al attempted to take responsibility for what Morrigan had done.

"Is it not a bit late to attempt showing compassion for your own race?" Sobek wondered what other amusing things were going to be said.

"Allienna has taken your remaining worlds and possessions, anything you have left is so tucked away it may as well not exist, clearly your schemes have failed but those same schemes are reason for having you executed." He was going to be honest with them what side he was on.

"Words in this situation are of little use to me, neither of you have shown to be trustworthy." He especially knew Ba'al was known for being one of the largest liars of them all.

"I propose that you be sent on a quest to regain your honour, preferably on a battlefield though I am sure Ba'al with your track record of hunting down relics that too could be arranged." Sobek was asking for them to lead Jaffa into battle or on a hunt for something that would benefit them all, was what he was asking considered by the others to be so odd.

"Ba'al of knowledge can be helpful at this time, it makes no sense sending it somewhere safe country of his departure and the loss of important information that he still lurks there ... it would be better for all of us pull out with a device memory, what is necessary to evolve our technology! " He said standing up Achaman showing averse ddello same Sobek, to risk a huge loss for the entire Goa'uld society.

"Rather ... Bastet could show off his warrior skills, would be perfect!" He added in turn instead Khnum smiling with malignancy while the just cited queen, looked at him with obvious hate.

 Ba'al merely sat back in his usual relaxed manner, even when facing certain death nothing seemed to faze him. Morrigan merely frowned slightly, she didn't have to be here at all since her daughter had arranged a rather nice retirement for the both of them; it was somewhat of a courtesy to her that they were present. "Neither of us did anything greater than any of you would have done given the same situation and circumstances. Our order was in disarray, Anubis had seen to that. Then the invasion of the Ori put paid to what should have been our end. That a few of us survived..." Morrigan looked directly at both Bastet and Sobek at this point, they were quite handy at betrayal themselves, yet gracefully not the former Queen nor Ba'al himself would turn this into a tit for tat bickering event. "...is nothing short of a miracle. You all sit here in accusation yet I will ask directly, what part did any of you play in helping when we were threatened time and again over the last decade by forces unforeseen? Nothing, you were either in hiding somewhere or, like the vulture waiting to pick the spoils."

 "Now now dear, we don't need to stoop to that level." Ba'al interceded at a timely point. "I can see the amused look on Allienna's face, so I think I will take a leap here into what she may well be thinking. Mefitis, exactly what civilization did we unleash? I'm rather curious about that."

 Both Allienna and Grundel were indeed looking as if they could simply take a sip of wine happy in the knowledge that the debate could go on endlessly. There wasn't time for that. "What battlefield do you propose Lord Sobek, for as of now there is relative peace in the galaxy. Unless of course you intend to start a war to prove your point?" Allienna knew that without her mother and Ba'al adding their weight to the numbers with of course a limited rein placed on them, they would all end up going back into their own domains, most likely going to war between themselves.

Sobek listened to what both Morrigan and Ba'al had to say, it was Morrigan who accused them of the potential to be as guilty as they were. While she was not winning him over she certainly was eager to push him. Bastet he could safely say was also known as a traitor even Allienna had betrayed her own mother. He was certainly one of the more honest here and he knew it.

"At least I did not betray our kind." Sobek could not believe Morrigan thought she could twist this on him not that it mattered.

"What Mefitis says is truth." He was not surprised to find the others had already stuck to Allienna confirming his suspicions of what was already being set in motion.

"I am glad you both consider the potential pardon of two traitors a humorous matter." He studied them a bit longer as he considered what to say.

It was most peculiar that Allienna and Morrigan were getting along so well considering their recent past of betrayal together. No doubt it was more Allienna that was going to benefit from this pardon as Morrigan had supposedly made it obvious she wanted her daughter to rule, that was if what she was saying was the truth. He was surprised that despite all of the political manipulation they still had not come up with a better defence, indeed at least Ba'al had acted more humble before him though he was the most likely to be planning on back stabbing Allienna as well.

"Trusting them to lead an important battle at this time would be too much responsibility for them." Sobek knew that sending a queen onto a battlefield was an odd suggestion and Khnum was right Ba'al probably had information they did not want to lose.

"Very well in that case they will spend two weeks on Tarvis without technology or servants, with only each other to support them, if they survive I will support them being given any minor governing from a number of choices proposed by Allienna with the guarantee they will be watched closely." The nature of Tarvis would provide a far greater battlefield then fighting any slaves would offer, if they survived that then they will have earned the right to some respect from him.

"It is of course their choice if they wish to undergo such a perilous challenge, the offer will remain until they choose to leave this room." It was a far greater offer then what they deserved.

Both Khnum who Achaman himself did not know what to think, Sobek seemed to want a conflict and this really was inexplicable. A war now would entail a considerable loss of men and surely ships, as well as to take a toll on the economy of the revived Goa'uld empire.

"So Sobek at which yearns conflict?" khnum churches also concerned about the answer would probably received.

Like daughter, like mother. There was another one who deflected questions. Mefitis couldn't help but roll her eyes at such a clunky whataboutist argument. "Yours is a false analogy, Morrigan, at least in my case. I took shelter on my world far before the threats of the Ori or Anubis or the people of the First World made themselves manifest, millenia ago. When we thought Anubis lost, when men bowed to us, when we did not even know what an 'Ori' was. I find myself here almost entirely by chance". She turned towards Sobek.
"Had it not been for a rather fortuitious event with one of Lord Sobek's scouting parties, I would have helplessly and obliviously waited the enemy to discover my refuge and undo me and my people", she said as she pointed her hand at him.

With the context clarified, she could finally make her point, so she turned again towards the red woman. "By your own admission, Morrigan, you collaborated with the enemy in order to pick up the leftovers of our resources, this is something that damaged us. My inaction did no such thing, especially given my limited resources. It certainly was not beneficial, but I was certainly not... 'sticking my head in the sand', I was certainly not hiding from the enemy, considering that I was not even aware of its existence when I took shelter on my world millenia ago. None of us were. We are on entirely different levels". She ended her argument with a polite smile. She could understand Morrigan's reasons for this, or at least she thought she knew it on a semi-subconscious level. When a big damage is done, lowering others to the same level as one's own is a good way to make sure that the sense of guilt doesn't drown one in it, wiping out every desire to live and act. Perhaps that denial was a necessary evil.

She turned towards the lightning god, taking some breath before speaking. "You should be aware of the peculiarities of the people of the First World much more than I am. To directly answer your question, rule on our former worlds is anarchic in nature, while the jaffa, in their misguided attempt to become, I presume, a civilization in our likeness, in their attempt to escape their divinely-given nature of warriors and incubators for our newborn, are fundamentally without purpose, and we should fear the creatures without purpose, Lord Ba'al". Her hand approached her chest, allowing her to retake breath. "They leave an endless, chaotic nothing behind and that has brought us here, not just in this room but in our pitiful situation, certainly against our will, one way or another. This is what has been unleashed on us". She concluded. It was disappointing. Despite her attempts, her question was not answered. No matter, what was important now was what to do with those two.

Sending them both to a battlefield would be dangerous, what if they gained success, against all odds? They would recover some or even all of their prestige, and Mefitis could not help but think that she coveted their positions, with no leashes on that.
Isolation for two weeks would be pointless, and she cared not for their mental state after the ordeal. Besides, risking the life of a breeding queen in such a time of need was dangerous.
"I propose the following course of action: Morrigan and Ba'al will be forgiven of their crimes and be restored to positions of authority, with no one above their position. They will be given worlds to rule in which they will have extensive agency, and they will be given the right to field armies and armadas for both defensive and offensive purposes, against our shared enemies". The Goa'uld needed as many numbers as possible, for now, they could provide. "But they will have no voting power in this august council. From now to, let's say... the next five centuries" she concluded. It was a rather merciful and pragmatic solution, she reasoned. If she would have found opposition on what she thought, then it would be obvious that Allienna was still attempting to cheat her way into a position above the others. Hopefully, she was wrong.

"Five hundred years of voting impossible .... interesting as possible, but it would not make sense anyway such a thing, put them back on the throne of some planet might as well go, but toglieerli the vote despite the ranking, it would be a counter direction, from I offered my hand full control of the Solar System Byzantium to bastet queen and I expect to receive the same in amble to this advice ... although I think most of what we have just discussed, we can not go! " said the proposed Mefitis on the fate of the two Goa'uld attending the summit.

"But for me there would be no problem, if indeed ba'al and Morrigan are able to survive and even thrive in this situation, why would we not want it all?" He finished doing her eyes sparkle.

 "Child?" Morrigan looked towards her older daughter expecting her to speak up at this point. There were quite a few misnomers that had been quoted here and the record must be put straight, whether from her own mouth, Ba'als or her daughter. She knew the youngest Grundel would remain silent, having had to endure her own kind of punishment not too long ago at the hands of the older sibling.

 Ba'al for his part merely smiled his typical predatory smile as if he was planning something, which most of the time he was. "I think we should allow our young Queen to speak up. There is much that has not been said here and the air needs to be cleansed, its starting to take on a rank odor." Snarky as usual.

 The blonde composed herself, perhaps it was time the full truth came out. "For those of you who have not endured what we have over the last decade, were it not for Morrigan and Lord Ba'al, none of us would even be here now. It was they who yes, assisted the Tauri, but in a way that we could not have. Anubis needed to be defeated once and for all, his plan was, just like the Destroyers we have recently battled, to remake the Universe in his own image. They were instrumental in crushing that by attacking those of our kind who sought so called protection by serving Anubis. They had no idea what they were getting into. Only one other fought as bravely and that was Lord Yu." She lowered her head in fond remembrance. "Lastly, if you need to point fingers at someone, the one responsible for the unleashing of the Tauri, that weight will forever remain with Apophis, no one else."

 "And..." Morrigan was looking more and more herself.

 Allienna didn't need reminding. "A pardon is a pardon. There must be no conditions set, although both of them are of the understanding that for now they will not have a veto ability on this council. Other than that, they must be made full members or otherwise this will all have been for naught. I will point out that Lord Ba'al has been punished several times over by my own hand, so attributing further punishment would be somewhat unjust to both of them. Morrigan's punishment was in that she has lost her realm, I think any of us would feel that was enough."
Title: Re: The Meeting Station of the Goa'uld
Post by: Shadowlord on April 04, 2017, 03:54:56 PM
This was now one game Sobek had grown rather tired of at this point in time.
Ba'al then spoke up using the term our queen a most interesting term under the circumstamces. Enough had already been said in his opinion. The only rank odor was the two traitors in the room who thought this council had been made for the express purpose of granting them power to return to their old tricks, even worse Morrigan possessed the ability to produce traitorous larvae.

"Ba'al was fully aware of his actions as was Morrigan and I do not blame the others for their crimes, not even Bastet." He did not have the best history with the cat goddess but he was beginning to feel the tiny tugs from their words attempting to disunite them.

"A single vessel is all it would have taken and yet none proved willing to do what had to be done." They had all allowed themselves to fall into inactivity and while it was not a crime it had to be changed now.

"Of course I would never tarnish the name of lord Yu." He said having had personal experience with the former jade emperor.

"Punishment we have only your word for Allienna, and I do not feel that is enough at all, in fact it seems neither of them are taking this very seriously at all, almost like your supposed punishments were nothing more then the offer of power." He did not like how Allienna had attempted to decide for them what the conditions for their pardon should be.

"You expect me to trust when all I have seen is manipulations and attempts at undermining the new found authority placed upon us, I would not be surprised if this was not their plan from the beginning, to use their words to continue to divide us." He was tired of them sitting there apparently so certain they would have their power handed back to them on a warm tray.

"I would prefer we die with purity and honour then die fighting alongside traitors we pardoned out of necessity, I will only pardon them if they fulfill my conditions or the conditions set by Mefitis it is their decision or is that not on your script you taught them Allienna?" There was no way the crocodile god was going to back down, Allienna herself was failing to convince him that she had the best interests of the empire in mind.

"What if I asked for the privelage of executing them myself?" He did not wish to sound so crude but he felt at least a bit of a threat would make them remember just how much authority over them this new council now had, potentially striking a bit more humbleness into them though that was most doubtful.

"Bastet was not and is not responsible for any betrayals towards our order, Lord Khnum, and as such punishing her would indeed be counter-productive, but we cannot say the same for the two brought for judgment. Besides, WE can wait five centuries". Her mouth produced a slight smirk as she turned towards her lo'taur, before pointing with her hand to Morrigan and Ba'al. The woman next to her bowed her head in submission, mortified without even understanding what was told to her.

Allienna was being treacherous as usual, and indeed she got back at the words she pronounced not too earlier, Mefitis had predicted this. "Are you reneging your words, Allienna? You said yourself not five minutes ago that those brought to judgment would have no voice in this council, and yet now you claim that they should be given voting power". How long until even the veto power was restored to them? She could not help but sneer. Would she change idea every time she embraced her proposals?

Whether in bad faith or simply forgetful, Mefitis had understood that she could not trust a word of this over-ambitious youth. It was evident to her that she still planned to install lackeys who would be perpetually in debt and loyal to her, in order to pass any decision she wanted to turn the Goa'uld into anything she wanted.

Her attempts to justify her decision by justifying the actions of her mother, whom she was condemning a short time earlier to justify her rise to power, did not help and only made Allienna even more hypocritical and petty in the older queen's eyes, giving her more ammunitions for her argument. Mefitis decided to show Allienna to the others for what she thought she was.
"Also, you raise an interesting point concerning Ba'al's and Morrigan's actions in order to justify your decision", she said as she scratched her forehead, struggling to put in order her thoughts.
"I decided to trust your version and take your mother's word and your word for truth concerning her supposed betrayal towards us and... 'yadayadayada', and indeed I still believe it, but there is an incongruence in what you say. If, as you say, Morrigan could have not acted in a different manner, if there were no other choices for her, indeed if, as you're leading me to believe, you would have acted as she did because her course of action was correct and sound... why was she a traitor, and why was she deposed?". Her tone became progressively more and more sneering as she approached the final question. By then Mefitis had forsaken most laws of courtesy, for the second time.

Allienna or someone among her lackeys would have made an attempt to deflect her question, Mefitis had already grown accustomed to it, but their reactions were not those she cared for. Sobek, Khnum, the cat, the womanizer, those were her targets, her public. Kudos to her if she would have thrown the mother against the two daughters, but she did not count on it. By Avernus, for as far as she knew the mother herself could have been the puppetmaster behind this farce. Or she could have been under her daughter's spell.

 There was a complete and deep silence the weight of which you could almost feel as Allienna measured her words carefully and with purpose. "Do not misconstrue what I have said. If we choose to accept Ba'al and Morrigan back into our fold, naturally they will sit on the council. But there are such things as junior members, scribes, clerks who take notes yet have no voting powers, they are merely there to bare witness. Anyone with half an gram of intelligence could clearly see that through the dialogue I have spoken here. Secondly, only you two..." Her eyes picked out Mefitis and Sobek. "...have been calling for some kind of punishment, that serves no purpose whatsoever." She turned to her mother and Ba'al for their voice.

 Ba'al spoke first. "There is one assumption here that is completely wrong. I have not spoken to Queen Allienna since she imprisoned me some months ago. I had resigned my fate that I would be left there to rot until I turned to dust. On release, which was but three hours ago, I was told by her guards there was a chance of reprieve. If you are now setting punishable conditions upon the reprieve, Allienna can quite happily send me back to my cell."

 The Raven goddess nodded in agreement. For although she wasn't exactly imprisoned, it was 'house arrest' in reality. If those were the conditions, she would have nothing to do with it. "It would be a shame for you children to all lose our wisdom wouldn't it." She wasn't afraid to push the sarcasm button at all, something she was well renown for. "Grundel, what have you to say?" This was the first time for her to have even seen her daughters since her arrest, the Goa'uld maybe nonplussed about it, but the host was completely heartbroken.

 Grundel looked like a deer in headlights, you could see confusion on her face. She shook her head. "I'm staying out of it. This is not what I came here for." All she wanted to do was to unite them. All the others wanted to do was to open old wounds.

"As for Lord Yu, he would have to lead the Goa'uld, the only one who opposed Anubis concretely and if we are also the only one who really would have the qualifications to sit today in this Summit! ... but that's enough find the point of confrontation, we must put aside our personal grudges and work together, I vow to return to the rank of System Lord Bastet as mentioned above, are willing to give up flourishing Byzantium Solar System for the Goa'uld empire well here this Bastet!

Mefitis kept sneering as Allienna spoke, bewildered and even entertained. When she and the others ceased speaking, the older queen recomposed herself and raised her tone, enough to assert herself and allow parts of her indignation to emerge while still keeping her grace, thinking herself above yelling.
"I am not falsifying anything, Allienna, I am stating facts. You were not talking about scribes or other underlings, in fact you never did, you were talking about Morrigan and Ba'al. We were debating their fate together even before they were brought here, we had a disagreement over that which I thought was settled when you claimed that they would not be given voice in the council". In an ideal situation she would have just put a veto on such a decision, but no one there had any veto power yet or any official position for that matter. Even as they faced extinction, some of her kind were either too power-hungry to truly build an effective resistance against entropy, or too pusillanimous to oppose the former.

 The rage in Morrigan's eyes was quite apparent, she made it clear for everyone. "Neither Lord Ba'al nor myself have any desire to partake in the voting procedure of this, this council." Personally she thought it was a joke, they were hardly a meeting of the greats as she had lived through. All of them very minor Goa'uld so far. "Either accept us or not. I do not care either way since there appears to be such contempt for one another here, its quite apparent nothing has changed for our kind."

Sobek had stayed silent for awhile listening to the back and forth between Mefitis and Morrigan. Much had been revealed to him during the course of the summit. Some of them shaking the small amount of trust he had in Allienna, it seemed she either did not understand or refused to admit the truth of what was taking place. They were not going to let Morrigan and Ba'al get away with what they had done, pardoning them would make their council appear weak and easily manipulated and the fact that their council would then be ruled by those that sought to destroy the former meant that they would be allowing their new order to be sabotaged making them appear as fools.

Sobek enjoyed listening to Mefitis argue with Morrigan, he was open to keeping Grundel and Bastet to boost their numbers but the words of Morrigan made him realize how little respect they were willing to show the others on this council and that was a poison that had to be removed quickly. He would allow Mefitis and Morrigan to continue for as long as they wanted but he himself for the moment did not feel the need to repeat what had already been said. He wanted to know exactly what the others felt, of course he understood that Bastet would be joining them now and though he didn't like it he knew that Bastet had fought along side the former council whereas Ba'al conspired to bring nothing but destruction.

"Then don't". The peak of her annoyance and anger. For the first time, her eyes flashed in a bright white golden light, her warped voice as low-pitched as ever. The lo'taur next to her was terrified, judging by her expression, though she reasoned that the others were far more passive or entertained.
She remained silent for a few moments, thinking about her outburst. Finally, she recomposed herself.
"You are being given two choices: to rule again without sitting here, something which you may appreciate given your contempt for this position, or to be sent back to your dungeon or... wherever you used to rot before. Ultimately, the decision is yours, and I think that we should follow it". She could hardly believe it was even a choice.

So far, neither Morrigan nor Ba'al had shown no interest about her proposal, and Mefitis could just not understand why. It was a punishment, but it was a mild one to say the least, and certainly better than imprisonment or house arrest or whatever they were given. Why the lack of interest? She decided to give a context to her offer, to make it sound it more appetible.
"I can accept you, and so can Sobek here. But if you are truly guilty of something...". She looked at Allienna for an instant, almost in an act of challenge.
"...you would need some restraints, at least. And I think that my restraints are rather loose". A final, resigned sigh which only herself perceived.
If they would have accepted her offer, good for them, but she just could not do anything more, and in the end their fates were of no consequence to her. She was mentally and psychologically exhausted from this, but in her mind there was still the burning desire to go as far as destroying herself, if it meant denying two more sockpuppets to Allienna.

"We are bringing for long the reasons for each of us, good or bad, now we have to really decide so I think we should vote for each of the three gentlemen present ... do not you think maybe you or you still prefer to argue forever, you i remember that as we debate, our enemies grow stronger every day! " Khnum countered once again, now visibly irritated by the behavior kept in place.

"If you really want to continue discussing the trivial reasons that carried out blindly, then I think I will return to my planet and I'll move seen themselves that the collective does not minimally reaches the preliminary results to restore the empire caridini same!" concluded giuardando present and their faces. Ba'al smiled but said Khnum in that devilish face with extreme hardness.

"I struggle now to tolerate the childish behavior of these, do not we also put you with your giggles, because we do not put a lot to get a smile from ear to ear!" He snapped watching the fallen man with evident hatred and cruelty, which no one would have imagined in Khnum.

"Then we are finished debating." Sald Sobek as annoyed as his brother Khnum.

"They will simply take the offer presented by Mefitis here, or they will return to their cells." Sobek did not feel like continuing this when he knew Khnum was correct about their enemies growing stronger.

"I believe the time has come that it may be best for us to return to our own domains to prepare for the future conflicts against our common enemies."Sobek had plenty of his own planning to do.

"I trust every one of you will respect what we have had the luxury to discuss, and no doubt from here we will see more communication and cooperation between us for the good of our kind." Sobek hoped the others would be more willing to ask each other for help now if the situation was dire enough.

"I must compile a list of systems that will serve our expansion interests and allow us to begin taking back what is ours piece by piece, I am sure of any of you would have suggestions you may send them to me and I will consider them with great care." Sobek intended to see to it in a short amount of time this new council and their new order would be organising united conquests to expand their authority over the many stars that had been left forgotten.

"Now is our chance to restore order and harmony to the galaxy, we must succeed." He said wondering what Allienna would decide.

"I have a few requests about it, Alienna has already been made aware of my territorial claims, certainly once I released the Solar System Byzantium to the System Lord Bastet, I believe that a fair compensation is given me ... I can claim as my possessions two planets, one formerly under the control of the deceased System Lord Ra, provided that all of you will agree, otherwise we will find a middle ground! " Khnum concluded by looking at the present, followed by Achaman.

"Territorial Claims ... what?" he asked warily watching the audience intrigued and nervous at the same time from 'heated discussion that still had not led to a final vedetto.

"Claim back the planet Ombos, once my possession and how the planet belonged to the deceased Ra, I would say that it is a legitimate request Sekhet Hetep especially after the planet's productive system loss Bubastis Minor!" Khnum finished making his eyes sparkle.

"But before making this request I would have preferred to present a resolution to our enemies because now we are no longer the masters of the galaxy, but we have to share it with them .... well as they did with the Wraith in the Pegasus galaxy, we ask for a meeting with the Tau'ri and the Free Jaffa nation over the division of the galaxy, in this way we could concentrate for the reconquest of the entire galaxy! " He concluded Khnum knowing that his proposal was definitely shocking for its ability to revolutionize the issues and resolve them.

 The look on Ba'als face was one of fury. Here two relatively minor Goa'uld were assuming a position of power over two of the oldest System Lords still in existence. Even with their reduced resources given the restrictions Morrigan's daughters had placed on them both, under the current circumstances either of them could quite easily amass forces in a very short time from their former servants to unleash their own kind of vengeance. Still, the face lasted all but a few moments as he composed himself. "Before I give my answer I will ask all of you this one question. Would you rather have a potential ally at your back, or a potential enemy who has the capacity for retribution in a very short space of time." He leaned casually on his elbow. "You see Mefitis and Sobek, the two of you are in a very precarious position here, for even if Lord Khnum and Lady Allienna sided with you, between Morrigan and I, we have the ability to gather forces from under the young Queen's nose before she even blinked and she knows it. So....I would ask you both to very carefully consider your own positions here."

 Both Allienna and Grundel went pale, simply because the both of them knew for once the old fox was speaking the truth. Allienna feared this all would go south and all her dreams of a united Goa'uld would be evaporated in one stroke. "For my worth I regret bringing you both here. If it means anything at all, bar killing you both I'd rather have you banished to another galaxy!" Her sister nodded in agreement, it was even worse for her since Grundel was the one who had arranged to bring them in.

 Morrigan's smile was positively ecstatic, she could plainly see where her lover's thoughts were being directed; all she had to do was bide her time. If this is how they wanted to play the game, so be it, they were playing with the master's of it. She did have words for Khnum though. "Lord Khnum, we have far more to consider than our former children. What of the 'Faeries'.." She said that word like a bitter pill was in her mouth in regard to the El'Dari. "...and their spawn the Kelts? They can overrun us in the blink of an eye; should we risk the little we have left for the sake of expansion in times we not yet prepared for?" She never even looked at her daughters, the contempt she held was quite obvious.

"So Morrigan you intend to do with the new emerging powers ... after all if we had worked when the Tau'ri emerged in turn from the mists of oblivion, we would not even here, but all quiet in our vast holdings making war with one the other, you have brought up the Celts in what you have created their own society and in fact could become a danger to the rest of us in the future? " He concluded addressing the ghost Queen, a title that had been given previously by some Goa'uld disrespectful, a title that had condemned them to death.

"The threats are useless Lord Ba'al, apart Khnum and Alienna, we are all aware that our positions in this galaxy are very unstable, if you offer us and guarantees that your acts do not turn against the members of this council I do not see why you can not reign again as between us in the past there have been some problems! " intrommise Achaman is in turn looking directly into the eyes the same Baal, the latter realized that probably had already found an ally on the board.

"Wise words your dictated but out of desperation, I patiently rebuilt my strength and although now is not able to impose my will on the galaxy as before, does not force me to recall in this System Lords recommend that you do not feel the need !
" He replied in turn Bastet demonstrating its position on it.

Sobek had little idea of what Ba'al and Morrigan hoped to achieve by making threats to them being in such a potentially volatile situation. The offer Mefitis had made had been a fair one, the two clearly didn't have much else to offer their council. It was true they had to do what was going to be best for their kind but apart of that was doing what would be best for the council. He needed to get to the bottom of if they could be trusted to work towards extending the will of this council.

"Tell me Ba'al and Morrigan, if we were to grant you your pardons would you swear to uphold the laws of this council and seek to assist us in once again expanding our domains across the stars?" Sobek was curious if the two would in fact support their new order and if they would work towards expanding their borders.

"Ponder well your words, depends on them your own life!" He added in turn khnum watching the two Goa'uld with extreme seriousness. In the meantime another room, Satis was in the queen's Chaxiraxi and both were lying on beds to couches like the Romans and the Etruscans in the room when he entered the First Prime Rashaken, the worried face.

"Some problems Rashaken?" He asked the queen Satis continuing to carouse with the Queen Achaman while servants poured yet another glass of wine.

"Yes, my lady!" Jaffa replied by dropping the smile on his face Satis.

Ba'al's words further angered Mefitis, who raised even more the tone of her voice and instinctively leaned towards the table, towards the man in black. "Are you threatening us, Lord Ba'al?". Her eyes flashed again, she was like a viper stomped by a boot, about to bite and kill the uncautious assailant.

She stood in that position for a few moments, Ba'al's face unmoving but sneering as always, before she took a deep breath and realized what was happening.
The truth was that him and Morrigan were at far bigger odds with Allienna than she previously thought, and she had no reason to think that the visible tension between them was a comedy, an act. Maybe she was wrong, maybe she could expect an independent line from them. Besides, the idea of an attack against her terrified her.
She recomposed herself and took every measure she could conceive to reduce the size of her pride. "Fine" she began, gulping deeply. "You shall be our equal AND vote in our council". An unconditional surrender on her part. The words were pronounced as if they were teared from her mouth, as if someone had just teared teeth from her gums with a pincer.
She hadn't felt more wounded for millenia.

"The tones are much brighter than they should, I understand the reasons for the present, I do not even like to give Ba'al part of his power since I do not forget how much he has damaged the previous dynasty, but raise tones in This moment of weakness only gives us to our sworn enemies ... forget as much as the Free Jaffa nation wants to destroy us completely, we are the last legitimate goa'uld dynasty, the heirs of Apep and Ra, if we do not agree today, We might not have a new pocket to do it! " Khnum concluded, reappearing in the room as he sat back on his golden screen.

"I agree with the solution proposed a few moments ago, Morrigan and Ba'al will return to be sovereign, but they will have to regain our esteem with their actions, as far as Bastet is concerned ... I think she should also be put to the test, Letting it fall into the ranks so easily could be a shaky move as far as it has shown its extranity to the fall of the previous dynasty!

Sobek listened to the words of all his fellow Goa'uld and considered what was being said.
The thought of Ba'al and Morrigan being on their council sickened him and he had little interest in giving in to their threats.

He was still waiting upon the answer to his former question and he refused to make a decision until it was answered. It was important that this council put a stop to infighting among the Goa'uld and came together to achieve many great things, against great odds they needed victory or they were going to continue to lose everything they had left.

"Will you assist us in rebuilding our empire and defeating our enemies or will you not?." He posed the question to Ba'al and Morrigan.

The decayed System Lord looked at Sobek's lord for a long time before replying in turn. That question had been crucial and her life as well as that of Morrigan depended on her. That's why Ba'al had not wanted to answer yet, but the patience of the System Lords was beginning to come out very quickly, especially Mefitis and Sobek himself. Their nervousness was obvious. On the other hand, the absolute tranquility of Khnum and Alienne seemed to counter the nervousness of the first two. Third by importance to his eyes, Achaman and Grundel, two smaller Goa'uld he would not even consider a problem even in the worst day. Bastet could be a problem in the future, its claws, its combatability was not underestimated.

"I will work for the goa'uld to come back as powerful as the time of the glorious Ra, you have my word, no matter if I have no voice in the chapter, but I will do everything to bring back our powerful species as a time, at least from me, I can not give any certainty to Morrigan!"Replied, looking Sobek in the eyes.

"Very well then I will support your pardons." Sobek declared hoping it was the truth.

The Summit had been tough though it had been necessary for only now could they hope to work together. That was not to say Sobek would not keep his eyes on those that had formerly turned on their great order. Sobek had become satisfied with all that had been said and many plans needed to be placed in motion before he called upon them to lend their aid for restoring their great dominion. Sobek would contact the others soon to speak further of the plans he had but for now the summit was certainly drawing to a satisfying end.

"I am certain many of us have other matters that must be soon attended to." Sobek was sure the time was nearing to leave so that he could find what systems would need to first be reclaimed, the galaxy was now a much more crowded place and Sobek had no interest in sharing with the other races.

 The two younger women waited anxiously for the older players to speak up, Ali could see that both her mother and the 'Fox' were thinking it through with their usual circumspect. Ba'al did give his guarantees of sorts, that could be expected of him. Morrigan though was quiet for a longer time that could be counted on. At last though she spoke slowly. "I will abide by the conditions set. There is one request that I ask of you."

 Grundel could see something was about to be delivered, something she may not like but she let Morrigan go, even though if looks could kill, her mother would be dead on the spot.

 Morrigan ignored her children, she plowed on irregardless. "Ba'al and I have an accord, we wish to jointly be in control of a single world of our own choosing and....as opposite on the galaxy from my daughters as possible."

 Allienna was expecting it, she said nothing, merely giving up a half smile. Ba'al nodded in agreement, they had already chosen exactly which world that would be.

"Which world do you speak of?" Sobek considered their forces spreading out a good thing though he did want to know where they were going to be.

Sobek wanted a simple straight answer and he would be satisfied with granting them such a world. Sobek decided that there was little more he needed to say after this, he hoped more Goa'uld in the galaxy would reveal themselves to them and eventually reunite any future forces they could find.

It was going to surely be interesting to see if they could work together. The crocodile god was going to now watch over the others and make sure nothing of harm came to them.

Not only did Sobek want certain and immediate answers, but Khnum was tired of partial admissions and not saying, wanted to be certain before voting for Ba'al's and Morrigan's reinstatement. If he did not have many reasons to deny his freedom, he wanted certainties on the former. By now the summit was beginning to last for too long and nothing had yet been done.

"So what do you want, I've already offered my willingness to rebuild bastets, even giving the planet Bubastis Minor and the whole solar system, so tell us?" He asked directly at the potential ally.

Morrigan's request both entertained and took aback Mefitis. She quickly tried to put together some words but it only ended in a slight puff. The second attempt went better. "Why would you want to share the same domain is beyond me, but alright. Which world do you have in mind?". The smile was still fresh on her face.
"Hopefully also as far as possible from me" she thought inside, though she wouldn't have opposed Morrigan and Ba'al being her neighbours. It was just a matter of preferences.

 When the question was asked, both younger Goa'uld almost by perception knew what the answer would be. In fact Allienna almost had it on her lips when both Ba'al and Morrigan spoke as one. The word they uttered sent a shiver down the spine of Grundel, it had a foreboding for her as she had visions of this place from long ago.

 "Olympus, the former now long vacated world of the God Ares." Ba'al in fact finished the sentence with Morrigan nodding in approval. "No one has been there for quite a few years except Morrigan and I, so I can assure you any assets left are not with scrounging, it would seem someone else has already taken care of that." His eyes looked suspiciously at Khnum, knowing he alone would have been aware of that world.

 "So be it." Allienna all but grunted. "I will vote yes on this."

 Reluctantly Grundel agreed. "And I."

Sobek listened to the name of the planet that was spoken intently and at first he found their choice odd. That had been until it had clicked that they were speaking of a much different planet then he had first thought of, a planet that he believed was probably filled with many relics.

The crocodile god considered the knowledge of where they wanted to be placed carefully, he supposed it was fair and since they had supposedly been honest with him he could not deny them their choice. Sobek bit down on his lip for a moment realising that he was going to support this decision purely out of some cursed necessity.

"Very well." He said confirming his vote had been given.

On the brighter side of things the two had pledged to assist their race in reclaiming their humiliating losses, Sobek still could see them achieving what they had originally set out to do.
He was curious though just how long it was going to take Mefitis to get her new fleet together for they needed to get toward their next goals quickly and he did not like that the other races in the galaxy at the time had such fleets available to them.

He knew that talking to both Allienna and Mefitis after the summit was going to be necessary to see just where things stood with them. It displeased him to think of having to meet with Grundel in private was also necessary though necessary it certainly was, he sat back studying the summits current occupants coming to terms with the fact that this was now what he had to work with.

Ares overthrew Zeus? That must have been a treat to watch.
Realizing her distraction, Mefitis returned to the argument. Olympus, it was in the galactic east, if her memory was not betraying her. Distant enough.

"You have my approval". Mefitis said almost nonchalantly.

The planet's choice had fallen on planet Olimpus, a planet that once was the decadent system of Lord Zeus, a planet that apparently had no great wealth. No naquadah vessel to be exploited, a second-order planet, but Khnum was the only one who had been shaken by the required one. She knew that place was not what it was supposed to be. Zeus had managed to keep him for himself, despite the captivity and fall of his dominion first in the hands of his father Cronus and then by the hand of another goa'uld called Ares. But the latter had also fallen and the planet had abandoned its fleet, dozens of Alkesh and certainly a ha'tak, as well as a vast jaffa army and definitely a great deal of naquadah, ready for use, few or perhaps Only Khnum knew this information. The attendees of the participants suddenly concentrated on one of the current gentlemen who until then did not seem to veto, all agreed to assign Olimp to the two smaller Goa'ulds. The council was unanimous, but Khnum did not express it immediately. He did so after showing a security derived from the pure knowledge of what they were asking.

"The planet Olimpus ... interesting Morrigan and Ba'al for your choice, maybe I'm the only one to know why you made that request, the basic motivation, but that does not change that we also need your presence In the galaxy if we want to go back even more than once! "

"I do not conceal that I would be very tempted to deny your request with my vote, but as you will know, unanimity in the Goa'uld College is not required, so with the votes of 8 goa'uld in favor ... your request Is definitely approved as I deeply disagree with this decision that will probably be on our shoulders in the future! " He concluded the System Lord, sparkling his eyes, looking obviously at the present.

 Though the faces of the two old players looked quite satisfied, although the same couldn't be said for Morrigan's children, even more so Grundel. She was on the verge of panic deep inside as she knew this did not bode well for either her or her sister. The trouble was Allienna she felt was too blinded by her zeal in bringing their kind together as one, she couldn't see the forest for the trees. She didn't trust her sisters evaluation, she didn't trust men in general either, so her eyes were looking for help when they fell on Mefitis and those eyes were saying "I do not feel good about this at all."

 "Very well then, I think we can safely say we have an accord." Ba'al continued. "Although, there is the little matter of transport. Allienna..."

 Here it comes the young Queen thought, he is going to press it further. "Yes?"

 Her mother finished Ba'als sentence. "We need an Al-Kesh, one that has not been modified by you." She was well aware of her daughter's skills and she knew their every move would be tracked if she didn't get that.

 Allienna sighed deeply knowing this would be blown out of all proportions if she didn't agree. "Alas I do not have one. Sobek, Khnum I imagine both of you have a vessel to spare no?"

Sobek sympathised with the others the thought of what they were having to do was not the most fortunate turn of events but he was not about to let this ruin future expectations. He considered the question posed and looked towards lord Khnum, perhaps the ram god could track them if the ship belonged to him.

The thought of giving them one of his own vessels even as small as an Al'kesh did not sit right with him. It was good that the planet they were going to retake would now serve this council but it still remained to be seen if they could truly be trusted so the crocodile god waited to see if Khnum or perhaps another would seek to make the offering.

"Without a shadow of doubt, since it needs an Al'kesh without any modification, I offer one myself and I consider it to be lost since I'm sure I will not be returned to it. Only Alkesh does not have Jaffa ... They will have to convince them to follow them! " And continuing.

"If they really are able to attract jaff to their followers, who show their skills, we can not try the little army to give it to them, not at this time at least ..." he concluded smiling at the same ba'al, who also replied He's a sarcastic smile with a killer look.

"Needless to look at me with hate and ferocity, I know you well of God of Chaos and I know how much and how your threats can be canceled!
" Added Khenem's lord, sparkling his eyes.

For a moment, Mefitis' empty glance touched Grundel, her dread stamped deep on her face. What was she afraid of? Of a betrayal from her mother?
That certainly would have not been the behavior of a dog under leash, which she expected the two to be, and now she was being told that, yes, there was some wisdom in her argument. But where was she when she was fighting tooth and nails against their rehabilitation?
Too little her despair alone was, too late now that the couple was, heh, begging for transport to a home that she knew they barely even deserved.
If Grundel would have suffered her mother's revenge, Mefitis couldn't help but feel vindicated, in the right position to say "I told you", even though of course there was nothing selfless in her own lost cause.
She decided to not even bother with a response, no matter how insignificant.

 Ba'al looked at all of them, typically his ego had told him that the patience he had to endure had paid off in the end. To him and indeed even Morrigan they had equally felt they had won, losing something grand on the one hand, but given the possibility of building something even grander on the other. "Lord Khnum, despite your reservations and indeed that of all of you, we will abide by the conditions set. For now we do not have any need for Jaffa.." He trailed off as Morrigan took it up.

 "No, we have been allowed a small handful of retainers by the grace of my daughter. That will be enough to at least have some modicum of civility when we start anew." She was being tactful, though she didn't miss a thing in the exchange between her youngest and Mefitis.

 All the while Allienna was planning her next move and she knew exactly what that was. The words of Ba'al and her mother hollow echoes in her mind. "Very well then, if we have no other business to attend to, I think we should adjourn for a while. A dinner will be served in one hour if any of you wish to attend."

The silence went down into the hall, but when Alien said the dinner sentence, immediately and strangely, the tension partially weakened. Khnum had always been a great host, and in this case he certainly would not do without knowing the kitchen Alienna offered to them.

"Too nervous ruins our health, in an hour I will be happy to join me at dinner, I will certainly take my taster, but I think there will be no problem, but would not benefit any of us if any of us others died in This way! " Concluded Khenem's King.

"Achaman joins us at this banquet, it would be rude to you to deny your presence in this banquet kindly offered do not you think?" He added, showing a look that few knew.

Sobek had not joined other Goa'uld rulers in a feast in a very long time.
Even now he had little interest in doing such an activity yet fully understood the importance and therefore was forced to oblige such an offer. He was not about to mention out loud the possibility of poisons for that would make him seem like he did not trust Allienna which he did hope to change for now. Perhaps there were more things he could learn by asking questions if he had the patience to listen.

"I will expect only the finest range." He said as he remained seated at the table considering what to do for the next hour.

Ah, the banquet... Mefitis was not looking forward to it, used as she was to the cooking habits of her own world. She could swear she scoffed and rolled her eyes at the idea, though none of the presents even saw a reaction from her.

"Friends..." she said as she rose from her chair. "I shall go to my ship, with your permission. If any of you wants to speak with me, I will be found there". Turning towards the lo'taur and her guards, she uttered a few words before walking with her servants towards the large arch that marked the exit to that room.
As she was about to disappear, she turned again towards the others. "And send a servant when the banquet will be ready. I am impatient to see how I will be treated". A sweet and polite smile, feigning an unexistent interest for the meal.

Finally, she left the room. Now she had some time to think.

Achaman observed the attendants before replying. Her queen seemed to have a pure interest in that banquet offered, and so Achaman had to give in to the languid gaze of Chaxiraxi himself and at the request of his benefactor Khnum.

"We are very glad to join, we will bring our tastes good to avoid unpleasant moments, but I have to admit that for decades there is no bullshit between the goa'uld, this could be the first of many others in the future!" Achaman concluded smiling at his queen who took him by the hand before heading directly to the conveyor ring that would bring them back to the flagship. They would have waited like the other Goa'uld, in their admirals the advent of the royal banquet.

"Then it's decided, we'll go back to our spaceships waiting for the banquet to come, a change of clothes I think is needed right now!" Khnum almost replied, knowing well the fear of being attacked by Sobek by the same betting. The two groups headed toward the respective conveyor rings and expected that they would activate almost simultaneously. The first to come to his ship were Khnum and his bride Satis. An accomplice made that couple, the most lethal of a shaved knife and ready to hit. Soon the banquet would be served, the two tasters were already ready for their mission, meanwhile Faris and Rashaken were considering the news concerning Nesmeti. Their faces were thesis, a sign that something.

<Mefitis's Ship>

Sobek had plenty of time before the banquet was organised and there would be no better time to speak once more with Mefitis in private. She had not exactly brought the most luxurious vessel but then he was only going to be there for a short while.

"I suppose that went as well as could be expected." Sobek stepped off of the ring platform alone his robe flowing majestically around him, having brought no others with him.

"I have no need to state my obvious dissatisfactions, instead I will simply let you voice yours." Sobek was still disgusted Ba'al and Morrigan had not been executed but for now they had other concerns.

"I trust you took this opportunity to learn more about our current state and how pitiful our race now seems in the eyes of the lesser races, we must cast judgement." The crocodile god could not deny that the thought of smiting the long list of races that were under the delusion they could challenge the power of the gods was flowing like fire through his veins.

Khnum Ha'tak, throne room


The lucerne and the great halls of the throne room are all lit. In the hall there are only a few Horus Guards present as ieratics as statues in their seats, all bearing the helmet on their heads and we do not see their looks. We only understand that it is the personal guard of Khnum himself, his best warriors. In silence, we see Khnum sitting on the throne, his face calm and laid while Queen Satis is in front of him who caresses the sovereign or best caresses his feet. A noise of footsteps and we come into the room accompanied by First Prime Rashaken, Goa'uld Achaman and his Queen Chaxiraxi. The First Prime brought them first to Almighty Throne of Khnum and the latter sat on it, to be saluted first Achaman.

"Lord Khnum, I received your request for hearing, what's upset you ... maybe the readmission of Ba'al and Morrigan in the collective or otherwise?" Asked the King of Echeyde, sparkling his eyes, observing the great austerity that distinguished the flagship of the most powerful of the Goa'uld present at the meeting.

"The planet Olympus is a world in which Zeus once ruled, not particularly important the Goa'uld and the planet itself, being not a strategic place and not having resources such as naquadah, Olympus has for centuries been forgotten by the collective goa ' Uld ... just recently with the arrival of Ares on the planet and its sudden disappearance, we are aware of a remarkable fleet of Al'kesh and Deathgliders present on the surface of the planet, probably also a ha'tak is present in And for this I fear that the request made by Ba'al and Morrigan may be a future problem! " The System Lord concluded, rising on the throne and coming down to his main guest.

"What do you want to do, Lord Khnum?" Achaman asked in turn that he knew that the meeting was a very obvious alliance between them.

"I will send a ha'tak undercover in the farthest orbit of the planet to control the least suspicious movement, if we want to better control the territory, I think this is one of the steps you must take regarding your presence in the Goa'uld council. .. it is evident that the other Goa'uld recognize that power and influence not recently ... "

"My is not control, it is your merit if I sit alongside the System Lord and this vein is grateful, I have now regained a planet once under the control of a goa'uld Afa, a swampy planet not just a choice of Better, but because of its still available and rich naquadah mines, I have decided to occupy it and claim it as my possession, I have no news of God Afa for almost a thousand years now! " Achaman replied, taking a cup that had just been offered by a young blond-haired girl.

"I am aware of Achaman, I do not object to these claims, they are legitimate, now we have to sit at the table with tau'rì and secure a stable territory in which to rebuild our forces, away from prying eyes and potential dangers, I learned that Sometimes it is better to less territory, but more security and confidences safe from any internal threat, certainly my vision is not what allowed the expansion of the goa'uld empire, but now times have changed and we have to adapt to the new situation Or we will not survive! " He finished sparkling his eyes before the schematic scene reappeared and the big Khnum flagship reopened slowly in the space before the Alienna station.

<Mefitis's Ship>

(http://i.imgur.com/C80aXxZ.jpg)

She really didn't know what to think, overwhelmed as she was with the data that she had absorbed at that meeting. Goodness, it was as if she had escaped the old enemy's wrath millenia earlier only to find an even crueler world to face. And, while she was alone once, she certainly felt in horrible company now. She felt weak, powerless even, unable to face the forces knocking on her door, and no mental gymnastic dealing with the unique metaphysical role she had assigned herself in regards to the universe could truly soothe her.
No one among her people had to see her like that, with her head between her hands, that was why she had isolated herself in that room, even locking the door. She needed time to absorb and process.

She had been there for quite some time, but eventually, something changed her inertia. She heard a knock at the door, and before she had the time to send to hell the guard, she heard a voice, in her language.
"My queen, Lord Sobek is here to see you".
Her lo'taur.

The closest thing she had to an ally, though he certainly would have asked his due, eventually. Ah well, she could have vented out on him. She rose and, grabbing a comb, she quickly fixed the mess on her head.
After a few moments of frantic combing, she put back the bronze object and she answered. "Let him in".
The door opened, revealing Sobek's bulky, bald figure.

Mefitis's face was genuinely delighted. "Lord Sobek" she said as he went in.
The door behind closed again.

The two hailed each other, with Sobek eventually starting the argument.
"Is it because our dissatisfactions are the same and you want to save your breath?" she chuckled.
Finally, she recomposed herself. "I am not content either. You can see that I fought with tooth and nails against the same proposals you opposed, but eventually I had to dilute my demands and, eventually, entirely renounce them. Among our kind, we are but two wise people, Lord Sobek, and even for us, too many fools are too much to withstand". Way to give an impression at a first meeting. Lessons had to be taken.
"Indeed our situation is bleak. We have little to no appreciable elements left". Even then, she couldn't hide her contempt for certain Goa'uld she dealt with, particularly untraditional elements like Allienna. "which will make our punishment of the atheist masses much harder than it would normally be".
The queen paused for a few moments, letting what she said sink in in Sobek's head.
Her mind wandered to one of the subjects mentioned during the meeting, the Eldari. Perhaps an enemy even more dangerous than the atheistic Tau'ri and their legions of lackeys. Maybe a slightly more in-depth description was in order.
"It was mentioned in the meeting that the Asgard, who I am told are now extinct, have 'humanoid cousins'. And Lord Khnum, if I am correct, alluded to unspecified advanced technologies of theirs and even immaterial potential, like reading thoughts. What do you know about them?". Asking this question, Mefitis's mouth even watered a bit. The prospect of obtaining hok'tar, particularly with human-like graces, could only excite her.

<Mefitis's Ship>

Sobek found Mefitis alone in a room and he certainly could not blame her as she had certainly been faced with a harsh reality that even he himself was disgusted by. He at least knew that not all hope was completely lost at least not yet.

"Lord Khnum seemed in agreement with us but he is and will forever be the more diplomatic type." In truth Sobek understood Khnum's desire to attempt to remain neutral but he could never truly do it himself.

"Bleakness is of little concern, for did we not all face some hardships in our younger days when fools stood above us warming our thrones for us and begging us to take their responsibilities from them?" Sobek had also faced hardships when the former system lords had turned on him but even then he had survived.

"Allienna is young and we will do all we can to make sure she continues to learn how things must be done." He could not deny Allienna was constantly making odd decisions but for the moment he could only hope that she did not make anymore.

"I believe that Achaman and Grundel will sway and respect whatever decision their patreons choose, but all the same I will keep eyes on them when I feel it is necessary." Sobek had not been happy about Achaman's support for Ba'al but it was largely irrelevant until his thoughts blossomed into thoughts of true opposition towards them or perhaps possibly in time even Khnum himself proving even further how fragile their alliance now was in this humble beginning stage.

"We must make the most of our time, this unison is necessary if we are to all survive, Ba'al and Morrigan will support us in restoring order to this galaxy and will support our decisions or I will once more remove them from this council permanently and see them sent to my original choice." Sobek was not about to let them be forgiven and sit on the council just to provide setbacks for what needed to be done.

"I have met them personally, I had quite a bit of fun testing their leader who I believe was known as Selinde who thought that she could command the gods, she even locked me in an energy shield for a moment after I attempted to download all of their ships information, I found it to be quite entertaining." Sobek had greatly enjoyed testing them.

"Know that if you meet them I believe it best to inform me for they are not originally from our galaxy but have begun to colonise more of our galaxy and they owe us a great debt for allowing them to colonise peacefully, if they do not pay that debt then their territories will become ours." Sobek considered for a moment, they needed to be dealt with but they were not yet ready to face such a powerful opponent.

"Khnum surprisingly had one secretly without the knowledge of his kind join us and volunteer himself as a host, Khnum is who you should speak to if you want to know more, I do however trust that when the time comes the El'dari will respect our demands or will pay a great price."

<Mefitis's Ship>

(http://i.imgur.com/C80aXxZ.jpg)

Hearing Sobek's words, Mefitis was delighted at his optimism. Particularly, she trusted his judgement of the elders, for perhaps they could indeed be considered reliable... enough. Different and unshaken was her vision of the youth, but she preferred to just keep nodding in order to avoid an argument. Though she didn't disdain casual conversation (as casual as conversations involving plans of conflict and galactic rule could be), she just could not help it, she was made for knowing, and few things interested her more than those who tried to take the place of their rightful masters. "Know your enemies" was a maxim which she considered valid for millenia but she never had the chance to stick to it until that moment. Now was the chance, her mind had expanded to the size of the very cave which contained her massive palace, and she only needed something to fill it with.
And she could hardly believe her ears. "He volunteered to become a host?". Though she was convinced that it was a honour to become a vessel for a god, she still understood the reasons for the usual reluctance that the chosen had towards the idea. Beings struggle for their own interest and, though a long, healthy and lavish life and the knowledge of aeons would have been attractive under normal conditions, many, perhaps most hosts didn't feel that the price that was demanded was affordable.
Her own skin needed years to be convinced of the honour that had been given to her. Years of painful, even brutal birching which she could not deny she enjoyed, for it gave her a feeling of maternity of sorts that conception and birth alone couldn't give. They didn't need to receive education, her children.
But this... well, this was certainly different.
"He must have been a kind different from the usual, for I recall Khnum mentioning a betrayal of his people through this act. My impression is that they are indeed among our enemies, though I sincerely hope, like you, that they could be brought to reason". Sweet words for "full, complete devotion or wholesale genocide". Big words, too, for someone with her meager resources, but carried away as she was with Sobek's optimism and enthusiasm, she thought she could afford them, given time.

"You have also mentioned a slave people to these Eldari with an ethnonym that reminded me of the name the Hellenes had for the savage peoples who lived in the north, back when I ruled my own portion of the First World. What should I know about these Kelts?". The fact that a servant race was even mentioned in the first place implied that they weren't as unremarkable as they should have been, perhaps they even rivaled the Tau'ri in power, though she couldn't understand what kind of master would allow his servants to reach that kind of material advancement. Realizing that the informations that she was gaining were vital, she rose with a gesture intimating Sobek to wait a few moments, and she picked up a tablet together with a page-turning device and a scalpel of sorts. She needed to record all this.

<Mefitis's Ship>

"So he did." The crocodile god had not expected it to be true but it had certainly seemed to be the case.

"In the end we will both do what is necessary to ensure that all come to see things from our point of view." Sobek was not about to avoid doing what was necesssary to avoid the mistakes of the past.

"Quite good for you to notice, from what I can gather these El'dari stole from us much like the Asgard and performed their own social experiments leading to the Kelts spoken of." In truth Sobek did not know as much about this enemy as he liked and if the opportunity presented itself he would take it to learn more.

"They seem to have space faring vessels but seem to have had the el'dari religious values pressed upon them, their purpose seems to be to serve as fodder for the El'dari warriors however Allienna seemed to be quite comfortable speaking with their monarch." The Kelts he knew were to be lambs to the slaughter if they did not free themselves from the shackles of their El'dari beliefs.

"I do not need to remind you that like all humans the kelts were spread across the galaxy largely by us, as they are from this galaxy and from a race we have layed claim to their fate must be decided by us when the time comes." Sobek did not feel a need to exterminate such stolen populations indeed they had little power over being taken by the El'dari and he would offer them redemption in the eyes of their gods.

"The El'dari believe themselves the arbiters of all wars and from this I can gather they will eventually offer peace to us, however this will be merely a facade to force us to submit to their authority, just like the Asgard they nor their followers can be trusted." The crocodile lord knew that things were not going to be that simple.

"Our treaty with the Asgard should be a firm reminder of any future pacts we choose to become apart of, other races will always seek to drag lower races in to do their bidding thus creating chaos throughout the galaxy, I believe it is our sole duty to make sure our new council sees to it that all the chaos and disorder is once again restored into a new golden age for all." Sobek knew most of their enemies right now only existed due to mistakes made by foolish members of their own race and he considered it necessary to correct such mistakes.

"It will not be long before the other races learn of our meeting here and they will surely seek to destroy us like they have done so many others of our kind, I want to be ready for them when they arrive." The Goa'uld had not needed to fight such a war in Millenia however the crocodile lord was certainly up for the task and he hoped Mefitis and even the rest of their true council was as well.

"Would I be so out of line if I were to suggest when you were ready that I escorted you back to the station?" Sobek knew that now that time was short and this feast may in fact be the only free time they would have for some time.

"At this moment Lord Sobek is discussing the strategy that he wants to implement with the same Mefitis but what he does not know is that Bastet's return has been ignored by me and carried on without knowing even the same Alienna, Bastet is prefettantly aware Of the situation and is ready to fight at my side if one day is needed! " He exclaimed as if he was subjected to parachuting Achaman.

"Do you mean that Bastet has remained from the beginning in the shadows by operating conspiracies only for your will so that you can better control the enemy movements?" Replied Achaman surprised at the words he had just heard from the System Lord before him.

"Bastet has rebuilt his forces, his army, Bastet's claws ready to battle at any time, but wisely we have decided to keep a low profile to better control the movements not only of Alienna, but also tau ' And other powerful enemies that now populate the galaxy, in this way we have gathered much information about the movements of every single enemy ... useful and indispensable the aid of Kelani, with its ability to my side I must admit that the Things have been far easier ... even now he is listening to the minds and speeches of all of us including ours, but not hiding anything and he, I do not fear anything against my person or my empire, soon Kelani will get whatsoever required ! " He concluded, leaving Achaman speechless as the shot moves to a side room where we see Kelani sitting on a goa'uld-style seat. His eyes closed, his arms on his knees.

The queen was baffled at Sobek's words. How could a people be advanced enough to travel the void and serve another at the same time? How did they not turn on their masters yet? Perhaps their hold on these humans was loose, which opened interesting scenarios.
But, apart from bafflement, Mefitis also felt rage knowing that these Eldari took the same approach as the Asgard, stealing a people from the Goa'uld. It appeared that the Cimmerians and the other peoples covered in the Protected Planets Treaty were not the only ones worshipping false gods.

Finally, Mefitis returned to reality. The feast was approaching and she decided to weight the crocodile's words. Tempting, but it would have given away nothing but wrong impressions. Besides, she was sure that Sobek already had his own queen.
"There will be no need for that". She said politely. "My guards and my lo'taur will be enough". A false smile.
A brief silence, then she rose and called her servant, who came in a matter of seconds. The queen muttered something to her, then the young woman turned towards Sobek, uttering other uncomprehensible phrases while gently pointing her hand towards the door.
Mefitis quickly explained it. "We will accompany you to the ring platform".

<Mefitis's Ship>

The crocodile god was not surprised that Mefitis was for a moment left baffled, even he himself wondered how much was missing from what he did not know but he was certain such secrets could be easily found if searched for. Mefitis it seemed wished to return to the station in her own time and such was probably for the best.

"Forgive me, You are very much capable on your own." He replied satisfied with what he had shared.

"Very well." He replied still finding Mefitis's people to be peculiar but understanding and respecting their cultural differences.

He knew the feast would surely not be too long but just perhaps he yet had enough time to meet with lord Khnum who would perhaps appreciate a surprise arrival.
As soon as the summit was done he needed to make sure they moved quickly as well for he was sure Allienna would not fail to provide some excellent competition to all of them, he just hoped it would remain friendly.

"I would advise that you meet with Khnum in your own time and speak to him about his experiences with the El'dari admittedly he has been a great source of information." He had no desire to force her into diplomatic situations she had no interest in but the thought of knowing their enemy was for a fact far more important.

"Of course I will wish to speak with Khnum now myself and if you could inform him of my visit I would be most grateful." Sobek was certainly finding himself busy for the moment but such things needed to be done if he was going to have his allies prepared to face such great odds.

<Mefitis's Ship>

(http://i.imgur.com/C80aXxZ.jpg)

"There is nothing to forgive" she chuckled. "For there was no offense". The queen was still chuckling, but finally she recomposed herself.

Addressing the issue of informations on the Eldari, Mefitis decided to give a vague answer.
"And do not worry, I will see what I can do with Khnum". The truth was that she was tired of dealing with other Goa'uld, for now. She planned in her mind what to do, but the idea of sending a delegation on his world to collect informations on her behalf and estabilish relations was already taking form. She knew Khenem's address, after all.

Finally, the two were at the platform, Sobek one step from it.
Mefitis briefly reflected on his previous proposal and its implications. Still too much for her, but she reasoned that leaving him entirely empty-handed would have been a rude act, considering what he had done for her so far. Besides, there were no other Goa'uld around, it was something she could afford. Quickly, she grabbed his head and gave a long, loud, warm kiss on his cheek. When she was done, there was a big, satisfied smile on Sobek's face.
"I'll see you soon" she said as she gave a pat on his shoulders. Her smile mirrored his own, with the warmth of the improvisation of that sudden act still fresh on her face.
Finally, Sobek stepped on the platform and disappeared in a ray of light.

Mefitis gave a deep sigh of fulfillment, then she finally turned towards her lo'taur, switching to her language. "Come, help me choose something appropriate for the feast". The young girl bowed her head submissively and the two walked back to the queen's room.

<Khnum Flagship>

Sobek arrived aboard the flag vessel of lord Khnum, the vessel was by far the largest of all that had been brought to the summit and it seemed obvious Khnum had desired to make a large display of power but to the crocodile god this was not a concern. The Horus guards of Khnum were already it seemed awaiting his arrival and so he decided to treat them respectfully.

"Honourable Horus warriors I have come to speak with lord Khnum before the banquet begins." He stated hoping the ram lord was not currently too busy to see him.

<9 Level Meeting Chamber>

 

 As the others retired to whatever they needed to do, the young Queen with her sister chose to stay in the meeting chamber for the duration of the hour, they had much to discuss between them, most of which came from Grundel as she wanted to express her fears and apprehensions to her older sibling. They sat together at the end, face to face so close so as to minimize what others, even their own guards might over hear.

 "I do not like this sister, not at all. You know all we strived for to keep Mother away from us, to stop her meddling and now you have basically invited them back in and...." She turned red when she said the next word. "...and Ba'al! Do you know how close to annihilation our race came because of him and his actions? Do you?" Grundel pressed her face so close to Allienna's it could almost be taken for a challenge. The older sister though merely pushed the younger back down in her seat gently and since she was far stronger the other could do little to resist.

 "Be at peace my Sister. Do you think for a moment I would allow those two free rein across the galaxy without some kind of checks and balances? Do you really think I am that dull?" She almost laughed but refrained out of respect for the younger Goa'uld (not by much). "Ba'al, God of War, of the seasons, God of Fertility or so he would like us all to believe, along with our Mother have this impression that we are setting them free without bonds to do whatever they wish to do."

 Grundel sat back in surprise, doing her best to find reason in her sisters words."Well you did essentially do that, you also more or less forced the councils hand on that matter."

 "Did I? Are they all not of their own free will?" She shook her head. "No my dear sister I only guided them along a path. Morrigan and Ba'al are as the Tauri often say, are only here to make up the numbers. Our enemies, or any potential enemies must see we are still a strong force, to do that we need to be seen as at least something of the former System Lords order. Those two will be shackled as well as if they we still under house arrest; any 'followers' they think is under their rule will merely be an extension of our army. I will see that the others do whatever they can to place some of their own among them as well. Whether near or afar, they cannot ever be trusted." She looked up for a moment then back down again. "Our kind have always had rivalry, but treachery will not be tolerated any longer. Think of Kali and you will understand what I mean by treachery."

 Again the younger looked up, not in surprise this time but horror. "So it was you, you had her poisoned didn't you?"

 "No Grundel, I did it with my own hand."

Khnum Flagship

Lord of the Planet Faiyum came along with his best warrior in the great room where Khnum and his trusted ally Achaman were still in the meeting, but Khenem's lord knew well that Sobek needed to know the reasons for khnum so that he could act accordingly . In the room, Khnum and Achaman continued to argue with relative calm until a rumble of footsteps and Rashaken's appearance in other Horus guards ranged faiyum's sovereign.

"Lord Sobek I am honored to see you in my presence on my flagship, Horus Guards escort is a pure formality and at the same time necessary, we have information about the infiltration of tok'ra spies in my army ... I do not want to Unnecessary risks especially now! " He exclaimed as he sparkled his eyes as he bowed his head to the newcomer. The same did Achaman, though he remained silent.

<Khnum Flagship>

"Of course." He replied stepping towards the lord of Khenem.

Such a large vessel and then the guard detail, supposedly necessary in these times and he could not deny that Khnum had done well claiming and building such large and powerful vessels. He knew this flagship was powerful and he hoped to see it in action against their enemies eventually.

"Were you satisfied with today's proceedings?" Sobek was quite curious how the ram god felt about what had taken place at the meeting.

"Is your new El'dari fun to play with?" The crocodile god wondered just how much Khnum was gaining.

The more secrets from the El'dari they unlocked the better it would be for all of them. Certainly more ways to combat their weapons would be put to great use.

"Lord Achaman I found your interest in Ba'al to be rather odd." The crocodile god hoped Achaman could be trusted but his trust had certainly been ever so lightly shaken.

"I trust that Allienna's banquet will be exceptional." Sobek wanted to hear every secret his brother the ram god had but he supposed with Achaman there Khnum needed to keep his mouth just ever so a tad more tightly sealed.

Khnum on his Throne , Flagship

Sobek's arrival, for Khnum, was another proof that what was happening at that moment within the summit would have been completely re-discovered in the new Goa'uld Empire. He knew well that the Crocodile God wanted greater power, greater political influence within the council, and that he should have rivaled with Khnum and Alienne. But Sobek had understood the mistakes made in the past to do the same twice. To worsen the situation, Bastet had once again been given some political significance and probably even military by Khnum himself and Alienne.

"I greatly appreciate the presence of my trusted Kelani counselor or if we want Akhenamun even though in this case the goa'uld fusion has been particularly abnormal, he helps me in the task of governing the galaxy fraction that competes without major problems and in return we collaborate To many projects for the common good! " Replied the System Lord, smiling at the end seeing the newcomer.

"And as for Achaman, he just does not do my order, he has little power and he lies down with the one who has allowed him to sit here today as my peers and your peers ..." he said in the end knowing well that Sobek did not You would ever believe it....

<Banquet Hall- Level 6>

 With large panoramic windows displaying the galaxy beyond and the asteroid field with a perfect view of the large planet beyond, the banquet hall of the station was fitted out in a mix of traditional Goa'uld detail with an emphasis on the future. The lighting was dimmed, to create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort, with large tables to seat eight at each situated in a casual manner around the vast hall. A Jaffa of the Leopard clan, formerly attired in large white billowing pants, knee high boots of a soft brown suede, topped with a white blouse and loose jacket stood near the entry door. She held a small gong, upon which she sounded three times, a sound that reverberated throughout the station and indeed out to the attending ships. The banquet was about to begin.

<Banquet Hall - Level 6>

It had been time since the goa'uld in the sitting, had returned to their ships, had privately discussed, had sought a mediation plan for their views, and what had gone on outlining was a picture Even more fragmentary than expected. The only thing certain was the fear of the return of Ba'al and Morrigan, little had been said for the readmission of the high ranks of Bastet himself. Khnum and Achaman had long talked to each other and with System Lord Sobek not coming to an end in the end, they had only agreed on one thing. The secret control of Ba'al and Morrigan to operate continually, something else had not been achieved. Inside his flagship, Khnum sat on his throne in the great hall with only two voices placed in front of him in the opposite side of where the throne was located. A noise of footsteps distracted him, and Rashaken walked from the door without his head covered. The Jaffa approached, stopping at the throne and only then the jaffa knelt down and then turned to his master.

"My lord the banquet is ready ... your tasters and your escort are waiting for the conveyor ring!" He concluded the jaffah with his chin head waiting for the goa'uld to decide to follow him. Khnum's eyes sparked and the System Lord rose from the throne of gold, descending calmly from the raised platform, immediately leading to the Jaffa, who rose up following him toward the conveyor ring. At its passage the Jaffa christened their heads as a treat, while waiting for the ring was the muscular Fai'san and the witty and skillful Kel'dar warrior. Khnum placed in the conveyor ring and waited. The five rings went up and down and the group was taken aboard the station where waiting for him was already Achaman with his Lo'taur and the same amount of people following him. But what aroused Khnum's attention was the presence of Bastet himself with his follow-up, also waiting for his arrival.

"Lord Achaman, we can go to the banquet, as you see trust is good, but not trusting is certainly better but I see that you also thought about it and ... I see that even Bastet has thought the same, otherwise you would not explain that amount Of jaffa and servants to your followers! " He concluded with sarcasm watching the goa'uld smile nervously.

"I struggled to survive and I will not allow anyone to try such a banal way to my life, Alienna seems sincere in his words, but I am sure that among his lines, not everyone is so loyal to Queen Goa'uld and his order!" Bastet replied in a soft, sweet voice, a typical character that distinguished her.

"Wonder words, but as we see, they wait for us at the banquet hall as they sent an herald to take us to the place indicated!" Khnum replied again, pointing to the group moving. Indeed, a delegate had been sent by Alienne to lead them to the banquet hall, but for Khnum and Achaman, the station with its futuristic elements mixed with elements of the Goa'uld tradition, seemed nothing but a mess created in the art. Slowly the open corridors on the outside in such a way as to show the outside of the station continued until they entered into a hallway-like room, but with large decorations, the loungers for each System Lords were located at the sides of the large Octagonal room, in the center a huge amount of cooked and raw food had been prepared. Dozens of servants were ready to serve while a sweet music could be heard anywhere in the room. The scent of food filled the nostrils of the present.

"I must admit that maybe there is too much waste of food for us all, surely it is a show of power and ease that Alienna intends to show her guests to please them and at the same time intimidate them!" He concluded in turn Achaman looking at the trays filled with food. However, they had come first, he would not have wanted much for the arrival of Alienna and other diners. Just a few more minutes to wait.

Mefitis had just finished helping her lo'taur with her dress when she heard the gong sounding three times. They remained still for a moment when the queen came to a conclusion.
"The banquet" she plainly said.
She enjoyed the casual chitchat as the two helped each other with the dresses - a white woolen one for her servant and a plain blue one not higher than her armpits leaving the arms exposed to prevent the risk of staining it - but she also resented the social convention at hand.
She sighed before intimating the girl next to her to follow her.
"This'd better be quick", she thought.

To Banquet Hall - Level 6

<Banquet Hall- Level 6>

As she entered the hall, Mefitis was welcomed by a pleasing atmosphere. A room that didn't feel too cramped, a dim but warm lighting, and a beautiful view of the void outside. The aesthetic of it was not entirely goa'uld, but nevertheless it still managed to remain within the limits of good taste. She entered the room hailing the others with a silent smile.
Khnum and his entourage were the only ones present, with the cat goddess and several jaffa.
Realizing that there was some more time at her disposal, she decided to ignore the table and approach the large windows to admire the view outside.
It had been so long since she saw such a view that it almost felt like a first time to her. The two stood still there, awed at the beauty of that vision.

<Level 6-Banquet Hall>

Sobek, the crocodile god stepped into the room calmly listening to the chatter around the room from the different Goa'uld and taking notes as he observed the chosen locations of all attendees. He could tell by the large entourage a number of system lords had no desire to trust Allienna's cooking but he was not so worried and plus it was diplomatically correct to trust her in such a tense situation.

For the moment he continued to keep his helmet choosing to not associate with anybody for the moment he simply looked out into space as he listened to what was happening inside the room and reaching out to see if he could hear anything of interest. This banquet was going to be most interesting for sure, finally his helmet retracted revealing his most handsome face though he did not take his eyes off of the window but merely considered the possibility of enjoying the food he was about to eat.

I hope this ends well. he thought as he turned to look at the others.

<Level 6-Banquet Hall>

 A hushed silence fell over the assembled guards, Jaffa drawn from almost every Lord and former Lord known, many of them now serving new masters, many serving Allienna or her sister. The swishing of silks was definitely audible, that went with the snapping of fists to chests and the long line of female lo'taur as they curtsied in their formal attire. Like a royal procession the newly minted Queen walked elegantly and regally with her head held high, although there appeared to be that like of fire in her eyes, more a demure shyness as she approached then entered the hall. She stopped, spoke quietly but her voice carried easily. "Forgive me for keeping you all, there were some things I needed to arrange. Grundel will be joining us shortly, although at this point I am unsure if either Morrigan or Ba'al will be attending." Allienna was dressed in the traditional royal silks of her people, a style that perhaps went back to the Celtic empire hundreds of years in the past. None present had ever seen her in this way, only the warrior woman she was.

After Khnum and part of his follow-up, Sobek also made his entry and as the present had expected, he did not speak to anyone, suspicious of what Alienne wanted to show up to that point. The look of Khnum, Bastete and Achaman's allies seemed worse than usual, but Khnum's attention was distracted by the arrival of Mefitis. A goa'uld who had only been assured of System Lord's rank only recently and still Khnum did not consider himself a pariah at the contract of Achaman, who saw in the queen an opportunity. The latter avoided the speeches and went to one of the big windows to observe the spoil around the galaxy. In the far distance most of the flagship ships, all ordinary, except the giant flagship of Khnum, the only one among the present who came to show off his superiority or presumed that. Diaper of jaffa were present in the hall, all silent and firm as Statues as Achaman, Khnum and Bastet gathered, watched the food smiling and talking to each other. Only Alienna's arrival caught their attention, their eyes on the princess goa'uld, and Khnum himself nodded his head in greeting, gesture that was intercepted by the present. Alienna's words also quieted the souls so that the first to sit down was Khnum, followed by a hesitant Achaman and the perplexed Bastet.

"I appreciate your hospitality. Alienna, maybe we started our relationships badly, but I think we could fix this banquet already!" Khnum concluded smiling at the hostess by pouring a cup of crimson red wine.

Mefitis's contemplation was interrupted by the bombastic arrival of the host with her court of guards and servants, the sheer size of the thing a message to those gathered there, she reasoned. Amazingly enough, Allienna's tone was far less audacious than usual, for the first time since she saw her. Cool, modest, graceful even... perhaps about as befitting a queen as the new silks she was wearing.
"The only people who change so much within a hour are hysterics and manipulators", she laughed inside.
But she couldn't help but appreciate and even respect that change, feelings which she reflected outside with a bright smile as the host entered the room.

Bastet, along with his Lo'taur, came to his seat and sat down, the same ferocious Khnum and Achaman as their jaffa lay behind the wall, so that they could watch and have a vision of the whole Clear in case of danger to their lord, but in the present situation, everything had been studied to perfection so that there could be no external dangers for the present goa'ulds. Even the choice to take tasters could be quite unpleasant, but for millennia the Goa'uld had been trying to kill each other, hence in a climate of mutual distrust, one could not expect the barriers and fears to be suddenly set aside . But all in all, the banquet could start without any problems, but Ba'al and Morrigan were missing, as well as Grundel, but it was safe to start without them. The queens Chaxiraxi and Satis at the same time, had started their banquet inside the ship of Satis himself. Not just a banquet between them, but also music, dance and demonstrations of strength and virility that both queens would greatly appreciate, given the equal origin of their human guests. But this was worried, both Khnum and Achaman, they did not like to show it publicly. They both knew the parallel lives of their queens, but they both kept in mind that they did not show anything more than necessary. A gong blow and the banquet officially began, Alienna went to sit as there were other snacks in the dining room in large silver trays carried by four slaves at a time. Khnum smiled, knew well the banquets of antiquity in which the Goa'uld of that time loved to entertain themselves, now that custom had been resumed again.

"This banquet would have been extremely pleasing to Nerus, but he liked to impersonate greed, greediness, and avarice when it came to humans, this banquet would have been interesting to him ..." he exclaimed, attracting the attention of the present and strangely Bastet was first replied.

"I still roll that individual, sympathetic fat but at the same time, yes you can not trust, at least not to force him to take away the only thing he counted for him ..." he completed Bastet smiling elegantly while his Lo'taur He tried every single dish before putting it in front of the same Bastet.

"Unfortunately I never knew him, but from what he was talking about, he was something that was really disgusting, capable of eating beyond measure and not feeling satiated, but also a genius of technology, was he to create the simultaneous connection program Of the stargate network, Ba'al's own technology by itself ... an inconsiderate genius say ... a goa'uld like that would have been liked in my line! " He concluded in turn Achaman as Alienna watched the discussion enjoy. Sobek and Mefitis up to that moment remained in their silent places.

Sobek turned when Allienna arrived rather surprised to find not only how different she seemed but also how many servants she had accompanying her. Sobek felt uneasy at the mention of the other three missing, surely there had been a reason for them not coming but it seemed strange. He turned around fully his eyes landing upon none other then Bastet. The cat goddess was certainly enjoying her time here and he could not help but be reminded of his last feast with his fellow ruling Goa'uld and how it had ended.

It would not be good to start a fight with Bastet now and break the unity he had been working so hard on but if she approached him he did not know what would happen. Instead of moving towards the food he decided that talking for a moment with Allienna may prove of some use not to mention that she had already admitted other things were going on elsewhere. He began walking towards the doorway coming to a halt in front of Allienna taking a moment to examine the new look that she had decided upon.

"Allienna, I trust that everything is ok with your sister and the others?" Sobek wondered just what Allienna had planned.

Goa'uld Station

Achaman, Bastet and Khnum immediately noticed the lack of Morrigan, Grundel and Ba'al, and all three of them did their best to show no concern, however they realized how much the situation could now Have already escaped hand. A slight nod of the hand and a Khwum's jaffa came to the System Lord, waiting for him. From the goa'uld a few but simple words, and only then the warrior, he abandoned the banquet hall without awakening the attention of Alienne, Mefitis and Sobek, now intent on celebrating the rediscovered equilibrium. The jaffa returned aboard the flagship and we clearly see it as Rashaken. The jaffa is positioned in front of the pel'tak viewer and orders to open a communication with one of the fleet ships. The kel'dar face appears on the triangular screen.

"Bring the ship to the orbit of the planet Olympus, hide it from sight and send numerous Ash'raq planets with the aim of recovering information, it is forbidden specifically to kill Ba'al or Morrigan, Khnum wants to know their moves ! " He concluded the First Prime looking at his wounding and closing the channel. Only then did Rashaken return to the Banquet Hall. Khnum saw him fall into the notes and jubilation of the celebrations. A slight nod with Rashaken's head, now Khnum could celebrate.

 "Yes, Grundel is well Lord Sobek. We had....a little chat and I believe she now understands the way of things." That was the biggest trouble with being both Goa'uld and the host's biological sisters, albeit with different sires; the two of them knew each other so well, it was easy for one to get the upper hand over the other at any one time. Generally it was the older Allienna, although there were those rare moments Grundel's mental prowess came to the fore. If there was any one thing that could be said about the younger sister, it was she had an iron will, once she had made up her mind about something it took a great deal of force to sway her. Allienna saw that in Mefitis as well, she could only hope that Grundel never teamed up with that one, it'd be a rather powerful union at least on the scheming and plotting side of things.

 Another slight distraction from one side, Allienna looked over to see her sister arrive. Still wearing her clan outfit of brushed leathers, but at least they were clean and she was well presented. Before the second sister could settle in, Allienna clapped her hands once. Jaffa started bearing plates of food, meats of all kinds, some unknown to humans. The same with the steaming platters of vegetables and exotic fruits; typically for Goa'uld there was no order, simply a vast array of food for them to fill up upon.


(http://i811.photobucket.com/albums/zz37/melanieoz/My%20Sigs%20and%20stuff/Grundel_zpsoczvpwca.png)

 Grundel took her place opposite Allienna, she nodded silently to each then spoke on hearing Khnum's words about the departed. "Morrigan often entertained Nerus in her court, a buffoon and a glutton yes, but he had a wiley mind that many could not fathom." She then looked up at all of them. "Ba'al and Morrigan have left for Olympus not ten minutes ago." The Al-Kesh provided for them was most likely fitted with a tracking device, it was expected, since no one really trusted anyone in the grand scheme of things.

"We did not doubt that Morrigan and Ba'al would leave immediately for the planet Olympus, knowing their thoughts, immediately checking in person that the shared destination would have been consonant with what they expected to find ... well we all know well That Olympus as a secondary planet, however, was still the capital of the lost kingdom of Goa'uld Zeus, Al'kesh, Alianti and troop transports are still present on the planet! " Khnum concluded, showing in part his knowledge to the present. Bastet was not surprised by knowing how the two Goa'ulds had done in the past.

"Do you imagine that you have taken your Lord Khnum countermeasures?" Bastet asked himself turning to the king of the planet Khenem.

"Not even to ask Bastet, Ba'al and Morrigan are watchful at all times, they will not take a step that I'm not aware of what they did, so we can look at them closely as ever in the past!" Replied Khnum, sparkling his eyes before bringing a cup to his lips full of red blood.

"Then Bastet are you ready to leave tarvis, a really dangerous place for your person to make it back to the Byzantine solar system or do you have to wait any longer?" Finally asked referring to the Cat Goddess sitting not far from him.

As Grundel came and the table began to fill, Mefitis turned away from the window to join the others, followed by her lo'taur. The table began to fill with all kinds of meat, ovine and bovine, fowl and what appeared to be pig-derived products followed by unrecognizable kinds from beasts that were unlikely to be transplanted from the First World. Fruits and vegetables were likewise a mix of elements familiar to her and exotic.
Always experimental when it came to food, Mefitis turned towards her lo'taur, pointing with her eyes towards what appeared to be the wings of an unknown bird and likewise queer but aesthetically pleasant kinds of cabbage.
The young woman slightly bowed her head and took small portions of each in her bowl which she then proceeded to eat, quietly observed by her queen for any anomalies.
Nothing out of the ordinary, thankfully. The two exchanged each other a weak smile but Mefitis preferred to wait a bit longer, knowing that the best poison is the one that acts slowly. Another minute, then another, and realizing that the food was safe and was already being eaten by others, the queen took her portion.

"It's more than your fear of poisoning in this banquet, but I can assure you of Queen Mefitis .... that not only is our army's costume trying to kill us all in such a manner so vile, but that our health is Very valuable thing for Alienne, if we are now dead, the vacuum of power that would be created would be such that the galaxy would know a new goa'uld civil war and that we can not afford it! " Bastet concluded suddenly turning to the same Mefitis until then doubtful about what and when to eat so many snacks.

"Also, do not worry about this banquet offered, worry about your return to your main planet, your absence could have severed serious situations that in certain circumstances favor the rebellion of the slaves we govern!" Finally he smiled as the present also made them a very visible smile.

"Let's enjoy the banquet for once without any problems, when we return we will think about our new problems!" Achaman added, knowing that he was among those who could potentially have problems with that nature when he arrived. He had left the momentary control of his small domain in the hands of his trusted sublord called Abora. More than Abora, she feared another underlord called Acoran. The latter had been trying to do it for a short while, to deter him, but since then Achaman had learned not to trust too much of his subordinates.

Sobek was slightly concerned Ba'al and Morrigan would end up attempting something in the near future. He just hoped Allienna's security was as impressive as she would have them believe.

In silence the crocodile god unleashed his desire for the food on the table, going straight for the wines and meats that had been supplied to them. Humans could never truly savour the taste of such things as the gods do. He wondered if Allienna was going to say anything more about her plans for their future but he himself was satisfied taking the time to enjoy the banquet, soon though he would have to leave for other necessary duties.

 "It wasn't exactly to plan." Grundel said of Ba'al and Morrigan, as it was hoped that at least they could be physically followed or accompanied to Olympus for a part of the time. That they were able to take one of the station's Al-Kesh, even after asking one of the others to acquire one, in her mind proved they cannot be trusted. She looked up at her sister, seeking perhaps some kind of explanation.

 Allienna merely shook her head. "No it wasn't. But when pressed, I felt it better to have them away from us, rather than be the disruptive element they had shown themselves to be. As it is, there status is unchanged, for all intents and purposes as far as our enemies of even potential enemies are concerned, we are more of a force than can be taken for granted." Sipping a little wine, taking some food she needed to assure the others on several fronts.

 The younger sister sighed deeply, still after all this time Allienna chose to not confide in her. She dearly hoped things will improve once she was away to oversee the governance of Lucia. "I should have been told."

 "You know how mother detests long teary good byes." The young Queen wasn't exactly being sarcastic, nor was she being helpful, but she had her reasons, time had long passed that the younger sister needed to be cut adrift to stand on her own two feet, without Allienna guiding her along the way. "My Lords, please do not fear the food least of all, a steward from each of your ships was on hand to help prepare the offering." She ate a little more, something resembling a deep fried small lizard, indeed she cracked off the legs to eat all six of them, before starting on the tail. Wiping her lips she looked at each one in turn. "Now before we finish our repast, we should at least mention any outstanding details that need concluding; I have managed to 'acquire' plans to the Tauri defence satellites I would like to share with you all once I have made some modifications. With these they can be set remotely at any of our colonies to stand guard even if we are nowhere near them; the concept I have is to add a warning system to the satellite alerting us if any intruders approach, thus allowing us to dictate whether we arm the device or not."

At Grundel's arrival a few moments later, all of them seemed to be not giving much weight although everyone was mindful of each other's movements. Nobody trusted their companion, they were goa'uld, trust was not inherent in their nature and to know that Ba'al and Morrigan had left without warning, making the banquet nervous. When Grundel returned, he went to the part he had been assigned to and started eating right from what seemed to be a lizard when he left his mouth to turn to the present.

"Now before we finish our repast, we should at least mention any outstanding details that need to conclude, I have managed to 'acquire' plans for the Tauri defense satellites, and I would like to share with you all once I've made some modifications. They can be set remotely at any of our colonies to stand guard even if we are nowhere near them; the concept I have is to add a warning system to the satellite alerting us if any intruders approach, thus allowing us to dictate whether we arm the Device or not. " The young queen concluded, knowing she had attracted the attention of the other diners.

"What satellites spoke to grundel and how did you get the information that you did not show before, are you afraid of the little fidelity of Morrigan and Ba'al, especially of the latter or am I wrong?" Achaman replied instantly to stop eating what looked like a roast turkey, though he was not sure.

"Calmed Achaman ... Grundel has just proposed something I knew and that I would not have proposed, if anything else, in the presence of potentially traitors of goa'uld, she did the same thing that I would do it any more!" He replied in turn Khnum, restraining the ally's sudden nervousness.

Hearing Allienna's mention of an interesting military innovation, Mefitis ceased munching her sausage for a moment and turned her attention from the bowl from which she was eating to the host, before finally swallowing. What looked like a boring and purely ritualistic banquet may have become interesting, though why she didn't mention those projects before, maybe before Morrigan's and Ba'al's arrival, was beyond her.
"What are the defensive capabilities of these satellites? What are they armed with, and what can they deal with?". Mefitis had passingly heard of an array of satellites orbiting the First World able to take out a ha'tak with a single shot but she struggled to believe in their existence. Still, if Allienna had in fact acquired plans for THESE satellites, Mefitis had essentially just solved the issue of the defense of her homeworld, allowing her to project the first fleet she was building in a directly offensive way.

The news of defensive satellites was not a new thing, in the rest in genetic memory, the Goa'uld had created a satellite technology that the Tau'rì could only imagine. Small pyramids that would hit alien spaceships with joint bundles without permission on the planets. But the project was abandoned because this defensive weapon could become deadly even for those who would have to defend. An emblematic case was that episode in which the same satellites had fired because of a telematic virus that came into their collective network. Ares had understood too late the author of that virus. Ma'chello had retaliated the genocide operated by Ares on the planet Dendred. Since then, no goa'uld considered that satellite system safe, dismantling existing ones and preventing the construction of new satellite mined fields in the future, at least to date.

"I hope it's not the goa'uld satellites of the past, we remember all the damage that some System Lord did to Ares in the past, so what is Alienna?" Asked the System Lord Khnum, smiling curiously as the idea of ​​the defensive satellite was among those he had always imagined to control the orbit of Khenem and Bubastis Minor from any enemy incursions.

Sobek listened to the words exchanged between Allienna and Grundel. Ba'al and Morrigan were gone at least for now and while he hoped they would never come back he knew they would surely seek to return to lay claim to a part of their spoils with little interest in effort on their own part.

Sobek for a moment almost felt a slither of sympathy for the sisters, to know their mother was a traitor must have been difficult but at least their earlier blood line had remained utmost loyal. The young queens attempts to assure them of the safety of the food was unnecessary for he could perhaps see them both assuredly benefitting each other's assistance.

"I for one choose to believe that this will work out for the betterment of us all." He said feeling like seeing what Allienna would say next if she felt she had his support.


The mention of Tau'ri defence satellite technology certainly did peak his attention as it did all at the table. He was no stranger to satellite weapons technology but it did certainly rub him the wrong way that these humans were advancing the way that they were.

Instead of asking questions he remained silent, Mefitis was the first to ask the important questions with Khnum merely noting his personal experience with satellite weaponry. Sobek could not deny that he was interested in what Allienna had to say and if she had saved the information due to knowing Ba'al and Morrigan would flee so early then perhaps Allienna was more on top of her plans then he first gave her credit for.

"It would be undeniable that such a technology could really be very useful, especially at this time of extreme weakness by the Goa'uld ... our planets should be under control by these satellites, at least the planets that host us personally ! " Achaman replied, shaking his eyes. In his mind not only the planet Echeyde, but also the rest of the domain and the lost planets that one day controlled. All protected and unassailable at least in his mind. But Achaman did not quite know the history of the Goa'uld satellites and how they were rebelled under the influence of a telematic virus.

"I think we should deepen the issue before making a final decision anyway, do not I see any problems for a targeted action by our contingent to recover this knowledge from our enemies, provided you are all in favor?" He concluded hoping His words could have had a bearing on council decisions.

 What secrets did the woman hold within? Nothing too dramatic as soon would be revealed. Grundel let the older speak in peace. "Truly I would not have revealed this within spitting distance of either Morrigan nor Ba'al. As you are all aware the Shol'va, the one formerly known as Athena has changed alliances. Stupidly she sort to sway me and Grundel both in the last two years, we led her on naturally. We were taken to one of her many secret bases not on Earth, and again with much stupidity she left us alone for all of five minutes. That was all I needed to download whatever data she had at the time on her Tauri device, the one Mefitis you scorned so much as I recall. It was in that data the full schematics and details of these satellites were placed, she may have changed them since, but what I have is possibly at least 30% more effective." She took a sip of wine before continuing.

 "Earth has 72 of these in orbit, with another 115 around their Alpha site. Based on both Asgard and Lantean technollogy; these satellites have their own naquada power core. They work on the friend or foe principle, as a ship approaches earth, an automatic 'identify' signal is sent at a range of 500,000 kms. If the correct signal is sent, the sentry satellites will remain idle. If the incorrect signal is sent or no signal at all, a warning is sent at three second intervals until the approaching ships are within one hundred kilometers. The satellites will also send a warning to the SGC of approaching ships at the 500,000 k range. If engaged, all, or groups of 12 units will disperse lethal asgard beam fire capable of destroying most known ships. The satellites will be cloaked on detection of incoming ships."

All those present though still enjoying the delicacies offered by Alienne, however, remained vigilant at the words just heard. Not everyone knew satellite technology as well as the same Alienna and Khnum. The latter two had widely studied the goo'uld of the planet Khenem. But the acausa of the virus to which the defensive network could be subjected, the project had been abandoned. But the news of overcoming this problem and the fact that the tau'rì had deployed this network was really a problem, a shield in the side for the goa'uld. They were not even willing, able to get closer to the planet Earth or to one of its smaller outposts. To do so, they would need security codes. Not even the most modern shields would have stayed for a long time against the beam weapons implemented by tau'ri after the Asgard's disappearance. Only Khnum of the attendees could have attempted an attack, but also his ha'tak would have been cracked though not immediately, the matter had to be analyzed and found a solution.

"So again, I expected the tau'rì to implement the asgard radius in other weapons; in the other hand, he was able to destroy the Orii vessels with a few shots and even the Wraith ones, we did not know how many shots they wanted to eliminate Even one of the most powerful goa'uld ships, but I still think two or three shots are enough for the shields to slip and the hull is perforated! " Replied Khnum, smiling.

"We could do an attempt to hunt a ha'tak without eclipsing in order to find out its resistance to the asgard beam weapons strikes, but in this way we could risk luring the tau'rì into a war against us, which would have arisen Really naughty about the little we saved! " Finally Khnum concluded, observing the present.

"Interesting." Replied Sobek interested in what was being suggested.

The weapons would certainly give them a much needed extra advantage.
He certainly did not fail to note the races mentioned that the technology had been incorporated from.

"It will certainly assist us in keeping order within the galaxy." He said hoping it was all as good as it sounded.

Hearing Allienna's account of her kidnapping by Athena, Mefitis couldn't help but chuckle at the traitor's crass negligence when it came to basic security measures. Leaving two prisoners free to fiddle with projects and storage devices... absolutely amateurial.
If the account was true and that was the best that the Tok'ra insurgency had at its disposal, then they were as good as defeated already, though that begged the question of how they managed to survive for so long. Maybe the host had omitted some details?
It did not matter and the queen had absolutely no intention of starting another quarrel there and now.
Addressing the matter of the satellites was much more important.

"Remarkable". Mefitis did not hide her stupor in the tone of her voice. If Allienna was to be believed, that system was nothing short of a wonder weapon, effectively shielding any tau'ri world from invasion. Still, it was not perfect. As she softly scratched her chin, her volcanic creativity was already beginning to come up with ways to turn them against their owners and make them uncompromisable for herself. She decided to intervene and expose some of her ideas. "It is not a perfect system, though, and this can be used to our advantage. We have the projects of the software managing them and the odds are that the satellites are networked together to make sure that every action is coordinated. It should not be impossible to develop a program that would allow us to turn the tau'ri's defenses against themselves". Countermeasures to eventual hacking of her own satellites... better do it by herself.
As she finished, she sunk her knife in another sausage and began cutting it in smaller pieces.
"When did you get these projects? The newer they are, the higher are the chances to succeed". Casually, she took a bite at another piece of sausage.
In its essence Mefitis' argument was essentially a partnership in research and development. A perfect chance to see how durable this alliance would have been.

 Grundel had eaten her fill, she kept mainly to the seafood on offer if only because where she and Allienna grew up as hosts was far inland and she simply favored aquatic species as a protein source over any other type of meat. After that it was vegetables, her cuisine of choice was that styled on the Mediterranean of Earth that had migrated back to Goa'uld cooking with the first Jaffa taken in the early days of Ra. She spoke slowly and precisely when delivering her words. "Not more than a year ago Mefitis, it was after my hosts eighteenth naming day. Since then we know the Tauri have only implemented this system in the last seven months, so any changes they may have made would be rudimentary."

 "Yes that would be correct. At that time not even Ba'al suspected Athena's duplicity, nor did we in fact at first until she began to speak of 'change'. Our spies have told us that she no longer lives in a symbiotic relationship with her host, at some point she had aid from another race whereby host and symbiote were blended as one. Yes, that thought disgusts me as well." She said angrily, what Goa'uld or even the hated Tok'ra would ever contemplate such a thing?
 
 "Lord Khnum, we have tested five of our own on an ageing Hat'ak previously owned by Apophis, though it was still quite well defended. It lasted just six minutes under a barrage by those five alone." Grundel, ever the warrior seemed pleased about that.

"An old ha'tak also lasts with shields at maximum power, only six strokes, then the same ship breaks, but I think with the new shields deriving from those that Anubis possessed on its fleet, we could establish a longer life and As a matter of course, stick with more margins .... as you well know, my entire fleet has no goa'uld shields I would say out of date, but the same ones that Anubis used in its fleet and I imagine you know it is due to the capture of one Of these ha'tak in the period immediately following the fall of the Goa'uld Empire! " Replied immediately after Khnum looking at Grundel in the first place and then the rest of his allies. That statement was like a lightning strike. Now Mefitis and the other Goa'uld present could understand why the fleet of that lesser gentleman was now probably the most powerful of the remaining Goa'uld fleets.

"I offered such a ha'tak to Lord Sobek so that he could copy and implement weapons, shields, and all the technology up-to-date on his ships, Achman also owned two of them at first, though he was now able to build three more to reach the quota Of five ha'tak MKII! " He finished shaking his eyes for a moment before putting in a mouthful of what was a stew admirably immersed in the nuts, the kind of dishes Khnum preferred and that Alienna had specially prepared for the lord of the planet Khenem.

"As for the satellites themselves, we should put our spy on the planet Earth and especially in the high spheres so that we can receive the data of the entire project, each computer system has its beacon heel, we only have to find that This defensive system and wait for the moves of our enemies, only then can we decide what to do ... sometimes patience avoids making such wrong choices but dictated by impatience only!

Sobek was enjoying both some Gazelle and Musi meat, both proves to be cooked to perfection and was satisfying to the appetite of the crocodile god. He however was fully listening to what was being said by all those around him and it left him considering the advantages as well as the disadvantages that were obvious.

"Such a primitive species playing with technology they could not possibly fully comprehend." Sobek had to admit the possibility of the Tau'ri destroying themselves with the technology was just as likely as them using it in any practical manner.

The discussion of the Tok'ra again was brought up with the mention of Athena and her foolishness, it seemed the Tok'ra were making mistakes they could not afford.

"It too sickens me, such a combination would destroy both entities creating one single abomination that should be hunted down." Athena in his opinion had practically killed herself already replacing herself with an unholy creature that needed to be eradicated.

The discussion then went back to the satellite weapons and though Sobek was interested in seeing the satellites built he could not shake the concern that if the satellites were not designed by the gods then they would be flawed and flawed weapons were a risk to invest time and effort into. Khnum seemed to also bring up a good point however making it clear their upgraded vessels were not so easily destroyed even if something were to go wrong.

"I do believe that these satellites could very well prove to be a valuable asset." The crocodile god was already imagining how many opposing ships would be destroyed with ease.

"My question would be where do you intend to produce these satellites as many here do not have the resources or production capacity to currently spare?" Not all were as blessed as the crocodile god with the infrastructure for such an experimental project.

The galaxy was such a large place and cleaning it of their enemies was going to be a task they must all cooperate towards, these satellites would be incredibly useful in freeing up resources best put to use elsewhere not to mention the push in technology being brought upon them. They did not just need to be an effective new ruling council, they needed to be the best and this was all going to be a great step forward for all of them.

Sobek's delighted look did not go unnoticed to Khnum himself, the words of the latter had shown to them the feasibility of the project, yet there were still many unknowns to fully question the whole question. As Sobek had said before, not everyone had the industrial capacity to build these satellites, all of them Achaman, whose miserable domain was made up of planets whose technological progress was firm at the Stone Age.

"Lord Sobek, this project is interesting and I must admit that I was fascinated by the idea of ​​defending my domains in this way, but I chose to reign over primitive populations by inhibiting their progress, I made my choice, but I believe that on the contrary My, Mefitis has shown, though not in words, the will to implement this technology on the planet from which it comes from and which is still obscure even to this collective! " Achaman replied, sparkling her eyes. Moreover, the God of the Guanches, he had always been a isolationist, with few planets whose population was still firm in the Neolithic.

"It's not a problem Achaman, your choice will be respected, we must also worry about the implications of Athena's presence among the tok'ra ranks, I think it might be necessary to bring it to our attention to understand its actions!" Bastet added in turn, blinking his eyes.

Never in millenia had Mefitis ever heard of a creature as foolish as this Athena. Not only did she leave guests unattended and free to sabotage her plans, she... even killed herself. Not just her vessel, not just her physical manifestation, she unmade her very soul. Voluntarily. What would a creature resulting from such a union be like? She heard of goa'ulds using their vessels to procreate human children with their genetic memories, something punished by death. Would Athena be a similar abomination? Mefitis' hand reached for her forehead, appalled at such self-destructive behavior. She had to be put down.

Realizing that she was wandering too far from the argument at hand, her mind returned to the room. Achamàn had shown the ability to read between the lines of what she said. No point in hiding it anymore, not all of it, anyway. She turned towards him. "Your guess is correct, Lord Achamàn, I intend to build on my own an array of satellites around my homeworld" she turned on a projector. No point anymore in hiding the location of her domains. "here" she pointed with her finger a point in the galactic south.
She paused for a moment. Did he mean that he would have relied on others to supply him with defensive equipment? Maybe she should have sent a message. "I will use this as a chance to build a degree of industrial infrastructure. My people are already at work on my flagship" she added, then she turned off the projector. The queen remained as composed and graceful as usual, but she didn't hide too much that she was irritated by the idea of using her meager industrial base for others.
Finally, she turned towards Achamàn's master. "Lord Khnum's proposal is sound, we should send spies to the First World to keep us updated on their development of the satellites" her tone grew more concerned "but the tau'ri appear to have developed ways to tell their own from our own. Do we have ways to counter that?". The queen didn't even consider how to procure the appropriate hosts for that operation. The ways to capture them and the alibis to cover everything were just so many...

 It had in the end become more or less a casual conversation with the topic swinging back and forth about the satellites, the Tauri themselves, Athena, Mefitis's world and how each had their view on how things should be set about concerning each subject. At least on the first topic Allienna had a response for that to begin with; certainly the others won't like her answers on the remaining topics. "Construction of the Satellites with my modifications and materials of course has already begun, if you are all agreeable we can negotiate trade for completed and tested units. Fortunately for all of us, Morrigan's assets were untouched in any of the most recent conflicts, so I can guarantee supply." She tapped her chin for a moment considering a reply concerning the Tauri when Grundel spoke up again.

 "My sister and I have had over seven agents located on Earth. While the Tauri did not harm them, each was discovered and each returned to us, the last with a warning that they will not be so benevolent in the future." There was one other way which had proven reasonably secure. "Ba'al had effected a masking agent some time ago with some degree of success. Although since the last time it was used we know the Tauri have developed a counter to that; still its worthy of further research. On the other hand, as far as getting someone into their command center they call the SGC, none of us has been successful at that for almost ten years, the layers of security they have now is incredible, they seem to be even more paranoid about such things than we are." There was no need to hide that, each of them knew well that was a Goa'uld flaw they all readily admitted.

 Allienna's smile was almost a pleasant one, almost. "You forget Lord Sobek that the seed of the Ancients has been awoken in the Tauri, with some large numbers of them having the gene. I'd be careful on calling out who is primitive and who is not in this new age. Things are not as they were even ten years ago. But.....Athena. As you think her foolish, I would not. I do not think any of you are aware of just how resourceful Grundel and I can be when we need to be. I am concerned though in the direction she has taken, it reminds me as if she is somehow looking for what we all do, ascension in the end."

Alienna's words were not a surprise to Khnum, the System Lord knew well that if his counterpart had decided to talk about such a technology, he meant that he obviously already owned it and wanted to sell it to the present. Alienne certainly would not distribute such technology without compensation and in this way would have the hegemony on the present, more than he did in the past. As far as he was concerned, the design of Alienne and Grundel had been studied and put into practice in an impeccable manner. So good they would hardly have said no to the offer. Khnum then looked at the present to better understand what was happening to them at that time. Bastet of Achaman showed discomfort, emptiness in the face of Mefitis, and nervousness in Sobek's. Alienna and Grundel were just smiling, confident of what they had proposed. Only then did Khnum decide to take the word again.

"Smart move to put a question and to give the solution Alienne, we had to expect such a thing, you deceit teacher, your empire is basically based on a few well-allocated resources, the network that you have settled in advance repairs you broadly, You can not say so much to my colleagues ... in fact many of them are like children in front of a banquet of sweets, completely unprepared on such vital issues, but not by incompetence, but by the lack of direct experience! " Concluded the System Lord smiling a moment before adding again.

"These satellites at your disposal must be controlled by the present, as far as my case is concerned, I am in favor of marketing and in my case I only ask for one to control Khenem's orbit at this time, half the ha'tak fleet It's enough, in the future I'll replace it with the satellites you've created! " He concluded, looking into the eyes of the hostess before resuming the banquet.

"Regarding the Athena issue ... I would not worry too much, I have operational agents who are monitoring Tok'ra activity, very soon I will have many of their secrets including crystal tunnel growth technology!" He ended up really leaving the present without words.

So it seemed Allienna was taking full production of the satellite technology, choosing to trade with them the completed and tested units presumedly for a high price. Sobek had to admit if the galaxy was not in such a dire position he would have simply found the idea of making such agreements acceptable however many he was sure here did not have the resources to spare.

"Do you intend to allow our fellow System Lords that do not pocess the resources to trade to go without this technology?" Sobek was concerned that if the others lacked the technology they would become a vulnerability.

What was said about paranoia certainly drew the attention of the crocodile god, they needed to be vigilant or else they would make mistakes that they could no longer afford. As he understood it he had to give the Tau'ri some credit for managing to even get the gate open in the first place not to mention being able to organise teams to enter into the galaxy at large, all while the majority of their population were completely unaware.

"That is understandable for now." He replied simply, there would be plenty of time to work on discovering more information later.

Sobek met the eyes of Allienna when she seemed to imply that humanity was not primitive. This made the crocodile god uneasy about her being the sole producer of this satellite weapon.
In Sobek's opinion the humans having access to the ancient gene was nothing more then an accident, one that should probably be remedied to avoid further threats to the order of all things.

"A mistake that should be fixed when the opportunity is presented." He replied though admittedly he could not deny that it had been useful to the Tau'ri in accessing knowledge that should be forbidden to their lesser species.

"I would agree that it is unwise to underestimate her or the rest of the Tok'ra, although I am certain we are in agreement with them being interrogated and then disposed of accordingly." Sobek scoffed at the mention of ascension, how could one give up their right to godhood and fuse their soul with that of a lesser creature and still be considered searching for some higher existence.

Sharing the projects for those satellites was altruistic enough of Allienna, there must have been a catch when it came to completed units. The others could afford it, Sobek and Khnum were probably the most well-off, but her resources were still meager. Still, denying them those toys would have been pointless. "I am not against an exchange of prototypes in principle, though I can make do without them as long as I have the blueprints. But I suppose you want something in return". She grabbed a fried eel-like creature from the buffet and she began to peel off the scales and separating the meat from the fishbone. A thought inside of her, not her own, reminded her of the irony of the choice, but with a lash she silenced that impertinent voice.

As she listened to the debate and peeled off the serpentine fish, Mefitis grew concerned hearing of the tau'ri's methods for the revelation of goa'uld agents. No, improving the masking agent wouldn't help, not on the long run.
She had just finished peeling the creature when she took the first bite. After swallowing, she intervened. "An improvement on the masking agent would be only a temporary advantage before the tau'ri find another countermeasure or improve what they have, we need something more subtle. What about reprogramming?". A brainwashed mole was less trustworthy than a host, but also more subtle, she reasoned. It would be impervious to blood tests, x-rays, if the tau'ri knew they existed, but it was reasonable to assume they did, or simply the senses of a tok'ra agent nearby.

Allienna's implicit respect for man was met with scorn by the older queen, but she preferred not to intervene. What kind of ascension could a god really find in a human? Mefitis could grant that human bodies were warm and ductile, with exquisite senses that allowed their gods to experience the beauty of existence to its fullest extent, but what could a human soul have to offer? Men were ephemeral, self-contained beings with no intrinsic knowledge, while the goa'uld were living memory, creatures born ancient and with the knowledge of aeons from their first moment. Goa'uld barely even needed to learn at all, for knowledge, wisdom, even experience were written within their very genes.
Mefitis simply scoffed at Allienna's attempt to understand Athena. A chimera was no god, but a mere beast.

The attentions of those present had certainly not left Bastet indifferent. Until then, the Goa'uld was silent, just eating by listening to the talk of the present. He did not like those banquets, and probably in the future he would no longer attend, but what he was feeling was curious. The security satellites were a nice idea that unfortunately was quickly wrecked and given the solution decided earlier, she was reluctant to retake them again. She remained silent until then, and Bastet turned to the guests after she had dried her lips from the appetizing sweet-soured thing she was consuming.

"The problem with the satellites is the security code, but this could be solved if, in any satellite on our main planets, we would insert a random code regulator and creator, they would send our coding codes to our ships to avoid fire Satellites themselves, while they would always be ready to hit any previously unregistered intruders! " The System Lord concluded, shining his eyes, while those present who had been busy discussing ignoring it, now realized that Goa'uld was fundamental to his contribution.

"Let's not forget, moreover, that Morrigan and Ba'al will have to say their own about this idea of ​​using defensive satellites!" He ended up eating delicately a fried spoon in a sweet sour sauce.

The crocodile lord listened to what Mefitis had to add and though he did agree he found the subject of one small little world rather tiresome. The Tau'ri had proven themselves a threat he would be a fool to deny that however he considered them not worthy of further discussion at the current moment, the true issues to be dealt with lay elsewhere.

The mention of Ba'al and Morrigan by Bastet did not fail to annoy him as he glared over at her. Perhaps placing her back on the council had also been a large mistake, regardless the satellites were something that would be useful but it was possible Allienna's price for them would be too great. It was of no surprise Allienna would seek to use being the sole producer of this weapon to her advantage and Sobek was not completely against such a concept, however he was left wondering how practical their production and distribution on a large scale would truly be.

"As I have said, any added advantage will serve us well, I must admit though that I remain somewhat skeptical of how well this technology will work against our enemies."The crocodile god wanted to know these satellites would work as explained, however he also hoped their new order would not base their hopes of victory entirely on such devices.

"However, the construction of these satellites will not solve our situation, we are in full decay, we need to resume the territories though not directly, but to show our presence so that our enemies are confused, as far as I'm concerned I started a plan Of new generation colonization ... Old goa'uld and new levers have been instructed to colonize old and new planets, I have given them the means and the ability to emerge in the near future when this will be tau'rì and other powers of the Galaxy will be found with powerful goa'uld lords who did not even suspect existence! " He concluded unexpectedly Khnum himself, leaving the present in dismay.

"Why wonder, Achman is also your creature, you have rescued him from oblivion and death, and now he sits at our side, and now I'm not going to enter into the merit of your operation, I can only say that you have a lot of the dead Ra As an accurate and careful planner, I am not surprised that you have voluntarily abandoned the control of the remaining five planets of your empire and that you will, however, soon reclaim them! " Replied Bastet, looking at his parigood in his eyes. Between the two Goa'uld he did not run good blood but Bastet had just said a great truth.

"Correct, Achaman is the fruit of this policy and as you see it works very well, many other gentlemen will soon come to contribute to bringing the Goa'uld empire back to strength, so strong enough to win the tau'rì and their technology Not only by number, but also by technological quality, does not look like the fall of the empire, our technology has evolved remarkably after centuries of deep stagnation! " Khenem's sovereign replied again, sparkling his eyes.

"But returning to the satellites, Alienna, should you tell us the price for a singleton or a game and are aware of your bravery of power and resources ... then?" Again this time Bastet finished looking at the lady of the station.

Hearing mention of Ba'al and Morrigan Mefitis couldn't help but shake her head in disapproval. It was meant to be a technological partnership, if they would have been interested, they would have simply asked. Besides, she didn't intend to take orders from them, there was no consensus needed to deploy the satellites, once the designs were shared.

Still, Bastet's solution was a creative one, if a hackable one.
"Or we could simply invent new methods to control the machines. Perhaps we could man them, but I don't know how wise it could be should they be boarded one way or another. An alternative could be remote control from a specifically built command center on our own homeworlds". She could already see in her mind where she'd build her own.

Sobek's attitude she found particularly uncreative; he wasn't thinking outside of the box. She turned towards him. "We are not meant to win wars with these machines, Lord Sobek, for they are defensive in nature. There is no other place to deploy them but the orbit of the worlds we own.". In the end, they were meant to be an insurance policy against any attempts to invade their holdings. Of course, that didn't mean that their technology could only be defensive. "But, of course, much could be learned from these machines. Our technology could be rejuvenated a lot should we adapt their beams and their sensors for use on our ships, even at the cost of a slight loss of effectivity from the base model we could have ships easily able to outmatch those of the tau'ri". The real question was: how to keep the advantage once obtained? The tau'ri would have surely done the same to their ships, if they would have been given the chance for a second strike.

"The problem of the ability to adapt and overcome our main foes is a matter of fact for the future equilibrium of the Goa'uld ... at present we are not able to overcome them with our current technology beyond Which is rather small, yet we have the chance to try this road only in the future if we are to strengthen and move forward enough to try such a big thing as our predecessors Ra led by. In that case we were defeated but the Asgard's attention to replicators allowed us to reorganize and keep control of the galaxy! " He completed Khnum looking at the audience before adding further to his words.

"These satellites could, as proposed by Meftis, be guided by the surface by a specially screened remote control and mask, so that for their disabling it would not be enough to destroy the place where their orders arrived, to win the Tau'rì we have to implement New more powerful weapons, you know that the tollans have been defeated by Anubis, who has taken the specs of their weapons and especially the Ionic cannons, I think it's worth updating this weapon and installing it on each of our ha'tak .. . "

"Particle beam weapons can overcome our shields as the shots of ion cannons can devastate their shields, which is one of the ways we can go, including phase technology or the ability to pass through solid walls. Give us fundamental help at least in the early days! " He concluded by advancing his proposals knowing well that Sobek's attention had been captured by this intervention.

The banquet had certainly been a success in the eyes of the crocodile god, his fellow Goa'uld had certainly brought a lot to the table that he found himself extremely interested in seeing how things developed further. Allienna and Grundel soon bowed and exited the room thanking them all for convening leaving the rest of them in the Banquet Hall to decide when they too should leave.

"I am quite pleased at what has been witnessed thus far." Sobek hoped things would remain this well between them all.

"Improvements will of course come in time." He himself was working hard to upgrade his own fleet fully.

"I will do what I can to offer my support to all of you if you require it." The crocodile god wanted to appear generous.

"It will not be long before our new order reestablishes complete control over this galaxy." Sobek allowed himself a grin as he awaited the replies from the others.

"We did not have full control before, but we will restore at least 90% of what we had before dakara ... by the way, Dakara from what I know after the attack Orii has been abandoned and for jaffa is a Fundamental planet, I think a reconnaissance to know the current state of the planet I believe is necessary! " Bastet replied almost as if to hide the crocodile God, which until then, although the deep enmity between the two, had not been unpleasant.

"Interesting words Bastet, one of us could send a reconnaissance coil or it would be better to cover an Al'kesh so that it can be approached without being discovered, and the latter could bring a larger team to the ground on the planet's ground The current status of the planet and evaluate the reconquest! " He added in turn Achaman, taking another glass full of red blood.

By then Mefitis had grown tired of the banquet, filled as she was with food. This and she essentially gained what she came there for, remaining there was pointless.
The hosts themselves had left the guests in their room, which created the necessary precedent for her departure.

"Goodness, I am so full..." she said as she rubbed her belly.
"And I have good reasons to believe that all of you and those two who left" she pointed at the arch from which Allienna and Grundel had left "will stick to what we concluded here". A wide smile on her face.
Finally, she rose from her chair, with the lo'taur following, her head still bowed. "Friends, I have to leave you. I had assured my people that this would have been a question of few days, and instead I have been missing for a much longer time". And goodness knew what her unexperienced son would have accomplished meanwhile. But, above this, she could not help but worry for her people who, by then, would have certainly missed their good mother.
"Farewell" she said with a polite smile.

Finally, the queen left the room followed by her guards and her servant, leaving one less Goa'uld in the hall.

Sobek nodded, he had to agree with Bastet at the idea of sending a scouting force though right now it was too risky.

"I suggest you get acquainted with your remaining territory before doing anything too hastily." Sobek knew that the banquet was coming to a close.

"We will wait some time before opening communications again and when we do your suggestion will be one of the first courses of action considered." The crocodile god knew all of them were going to probably need at least a few months to prepare for their next moves.

"Hopefully before then we will all seek out new information, Allienna I am sure will already be working on her satellites while we continue to build up our forces." No enemy was going to dare challenge their power.

And with that Mefitis took her leave and the crocodile god had to agree much more needed to be done elsewhere.

"I look forward to all of you being present when next we convene." The galaxy would feel their wrath soon enough.

The helmet of the crocodile god reassembled over the gods face as the red eyes again lit up signifying the helmet had completed assembly.
The crocodile god rose from the chair that Allienna had so graciously provided and with a quick smoothing of the robe with his hands left for the doorway intending to return to his vessel.

"You have quite a glorious vessel lord Khnum." He said before exiting the room.

First Mefitis and then Sobek left the banquet hall while Bastet, Achaman and Khnum sat at their tables while continuing to enjoy the delicacies for another half an hour before it was time for Khnum to stand up. The System Lord turned to the present and especially to the mistress of the house complimenting.

"Lady Alienna, I personally thank you for hospitality, a rare among us goa'uld and especially especially in this period so obscure, today we have achieved some fundamental goals for the future of our race ... not least we were able to reunite Putting aside personal ambitions and collaborating though not always in a transparent way, but we succeeded! " He exclaimed, looking at Alienna and then presenting them, leaving Alienna and especially Grundel astonished at Khnum's great oratory capacity.

"In the coming months, the choices made here will be crucial, personally waiting for satellite projects to create something that is hardly alterable to our enemies, as I said earlier, I'm going to leave the Solare Bizanthyum system and give it to Lady Bastet , I am convinced that only with cooperation will we be as powerful as once ... "

"I will return to the Khenem planet where days of great responsibility await me, I will continue to grow future Goa'ulkd lords and carry on the construction of the great Goa'uld fleet for our future return, any of you want to reach one of the planets of my domain , Is welcome provided he does not have bad intentions ... in that case he will know the pleasure of my worst punishment! " He finished bending his head to the present and leaving the room. Outside Rashaken and Faris waited for him.

<Sobek's Flagship>

The crocodile god had returned to his Ha'tak mothership finding his crimson crocodile guards once more awaiting his arrival along with his first Prime who shone brightly in the gold toned armour that he had been blessed with. The Summit, the first of what he hoped was to be many to come with the others that had managed to carve out chunks of what was left of the Goa'uld dominion in this galaxy.

"Your quarters are ready for you my lord and our ship is ready to depart as soon as you wish it." Crauc's face was hidden under his golden crocodile helmet but Sobek could tell his first prime was desperately hoping for him to share details of the long meeting aboard the station.

"I had hoped for more, however the others appear to be making the best of what they have." Sobek had summed up all that he felt was necessary to say.

"Will we be trusting them lord Sobek?" Crauc was very much aware trusting other Goa'uld lords never ended well.

"For the moment, but come we have much to do in the meantime, set course for the planet Medinet." The crocodile god needed to make haste for his enemies certainly were not going to allow him much time.

For now Sobek was in need of rest in a comfortable bed and perhaps some time in the sarcophagus. When he awoke he would have much to do to prepare for the bloodshed the future was bound to hold.

Khnum, Sobek, and Mefitis had come out, returning to their spaceships had been around for a few minutes now and the banquet was about to end. Bastet watched the present while in the room some guards came in the service of Alienne and Grundel, giving the latter in secret. The look of both the Goa'uld queen did not change in any way despite what they were learning from the newly arrived warriors. It was then that Achaman and bastets hit the ball and jumped almost simultaneously to their feet. It was Achaman who first addressed the hosts, followed by Goddess Cat.

"Lady Alienna and Lady Grundel, too, we leave the station to return to our outposts where we will start the strengthening of our forces, we will wait for the early summit to have new material to propose and progress to show .... the banquet was Our pleasure and thank you for the hospitality, I think the next summit will be hosted by another System Lord and I do not think it will take long before I myself will be hosting it ... with permission! " He completed Achaman bowing his head in greeting followed by Bastet.  Grundel and Alienna did the same.

Achaman Ha'tak

The conveyor belt reactivated by bringing the Goa'uld sovereign directly into the Pel'tak Hall, where Dacil and Doramas were waiting for him. At the view of the ruler, the two jaffa knelt as Queen Chaxiraxi handed him his hand.

"My queen, let's go back to planet Echeyde, we've lost so much time at this station, although it's strengthened, I do not have time to waste in other guesses!" He concluded the goa'uld, sparkling his eyes as he was accompanied by Chaxiraxi, and sat again on the throne of spotted stone.

 With only the two young women remaining, Allienna was pensive for a very long time. Finally she came to a conclusion that she knew would be agreeable to all parties. She sent this message.

 "Further to any preceding words spoken in the case of the defense satellites, I hereby declare that four prototypes will be provided to each of you gratis, for your own evaluation. If you are satisfied with the results, payment or trade for further production units will be either of the following; one metric tonne of naquada, or five kilograms of pure platinum.

 Now that most of the work was done, it was time for Allienna to leave. She had Grundel there alone with her, by now they had moved to the main control room, whereby Ali would be beaming to her ship. The last task she had to do was to give her younger sister the instructions she needed to carry on in the Queen's absence. "I will depart for our homeworld now my sister. While I am gone, I wish you to lock down the station, secure it, leaving behind a security force large enough to dispel any who would seek to harm us, thoughts of doing so. Once you have completed that, make your way to Lucia to take up your rightful place in good Governance."

 The younger sibling bowed her head in gratitude, both were immense tasks to be thrust upon her young shoulders. She looked up slowly. "What of mother and Ba'al? Are we to leave them be?"

 "Fear not, apart from ourselves, I believe everyone who was with us has placed spies in their midst Grundel. Farewell dear one..." Allienna hugged the baby of the family, a most unGoa'uld like thing to do, but then both of them had very strong hosts as well. "Until the Harvest reaps our rewards." With that she tapped a crystal on her wrist band and she was gone.

Bastet ha'tak, Pel'tak

Even for Bastet, the summit had been a complete, almost undeniable success. The Goa'uld queen was back on board his flagship where she had been expecting her most trusted First Prime, Relana warrior from the beginning. The conveyor rings had begun to no longer be the means of transport used by the Goa'uld since Anubis had access to the Asgard Ray. Bastet reappeared in the great pel'tak, where two golden statues depicting the same feline Bastet, located on the sides opposite the golden throne.

"My queen was waiting for you, we can go back to the Tarvis planet, I know that Lord Khnum promised you the control of the planet Bubastis Minor as well as the whole Bizanthyum solar system ... is it true or are it just rumors?" Relana asked, looking at her queen sitting gracefully on the feline throne.

"So said Lord Khnum, but I can not trust him, he is a serpent, in brackets, my servant Miw should have completed the conquest of the planet Ramiun Prime?" Bastet asked in turn to look at the throne of his throne and then his warrior.

"Yes... Lord Miw has regained the planet in question and is now waiting for the System Lord to lower his defenses to kill him as you ordered, you must have patience he says, he will have Khnum's head as you had that of Sobek or at least that Of his human host! " He concluded hoping that the beaten unhappy would not compromise his queen's positive mood.

"We'll see ..." Bastet replied unselfishly before hand with a nod, ordering the helmsman to return to the planet hosting her.

 There were two ways for entering the Meeting Station; by way of ship through a vast asteroid field that without the correct navigation inputs via your ship's computer, you'd be pummeled within minutes of being within the field. Or the somewhat safer way of Gating directly to the Chappaai. Either way once you were inside the station the highest security protocols were enacted; manned by Jaffa drawn from each System Lord to ensure no favoritism, you were scanned for weapons and any other devices and those being handed in to be collected on your leaving. No one was spared this security, everyone no matter who was subject to it.

 On this occasion, rather than hazard the flight from Gleanavar and the fact that time was paramount, Allienna brought Macha to the station via the Gate and once they had cleared the station she led her 'Aunt' to the main meeting room, walking directly down a long secured hallway, laser weapons automatically identified her, yet still they tracked her every move. They were located above, where wall met ceiling, every thirty feet.

< Level 9, meeting Chamber>

 Finally they reached the chamber, greeted by eight Jaffa again drawn from each faction; the sound of the fists meeting chest plates was loud as the two Goa'uld women were given the formal salute. "Formality has crept in at every level Macha. I'm afraid its a case of the old world emulating the new world no? Make yourself comfortable and I'll send a message out to our brethren." She then went to a desk contain a Vocuum sitting upon it, knowing exactly where the other System Lords were was easy, one of her attendants informed her and Macha as they made the funeral arrangements for Maegwin. She had to keep it simple and to the point. "My dear friends, not too long ago an attempt was made on my life. Alas the assassin made an error of identification, taking the life of Maegwin. I urge you all to attend the meeting station as quickly as you can. We need to send a message to Ba'al." She sent the same message to Sobek a moment after the first transmission.

Lady Alienna's unexpected message interrupted the current summit. The goa'uld had been silent all of a sudden, Khnum first of all. Alienna not only had not arrived at the summit that had summoned her, but now also dictated order to regroup to discuss further problems. It was the same landlord who tempered the nervousness that was charging at that moment. The vocuum opened again but this time it was Khnum who spoke.

"Lady Alienna, at this moment we are gathered at the Khnemu Station, you could reach us obviously I would ask you to reach the limit of our solar system and follow the indications we would give you for your safety, the defensive satellite system does not look between allies and enemies, it strikes anyone who does not know the deactivation code ... if you have the pleasure of joining us, we have something to show you and share!

The ship moved slowly toward the station as Sobek sat upon his throne swiping the rest with his fingers as he pondered what was to be said. The last time he was here he had been lead to be lenient but this time it was clear it had been unappreciated. The title of System Lord needed to be felt by others, not just other races but those Goa’uld that would defy them.

“Lady Allienna, I have arrived.” With those words his eyes flashed.

Khnum Apo'tak (Flagship)

A summit was over, and the request for attendance at another meeting had just arrived, this time at the space station in the orbit of the planet Lucia. Khnum and Achaman as well as the other goa'uld, present, had been called with a certain solicitude. Achaman had decided to join Alienna and after a first moment of hesitation, he had joined. The great flagship had been recalled into the orbit and Faris was waiting for the same Khnum inside the pel'tak hall where the System Lord would have arrived shortly thereafter. In his face the concern for the events in the underground base of Serabit el Khadim. He would have hinted at it with the System Lord just then, just before he left for the planet Lucia. The sound of footsteps attracted the attention, Khnum appeared from behind the semi-transparent curtains of the long hall. The calm and seraphic face, devoid of any emotion but at the same time serious and composed, severe.

"Faris before leaving for the station in the orbit of the planet Lucia, you asked me in a confidential manner, tell me then!" the System Lord asked, making his eyes sparkle. The goa'uld was only at that time, not even his lo'taur was present as requested expressly by Faris.

"My lord is experiencing strange movements in the military base of Serabit el Khadim, there have been malfunctions of the various ha'tak, of generators with overloads always reported in the optimal parameters, I have started a secret investigation but to avoid problems, on the ship will follow you one of my men, this is Jandir .... "

"... he will inspect the ship without being discovered and will intervene in the event of tampering of any kind, I have also informed Rashaken of this danger and he will follow you everywhere, in the case even at the summit ... I ask your father to pay attention!" concluded the First Prime by bowing its head. The scene changes and we see the great flagship splashing into a hyperspace window directed to the planet Lucia.

"Send the following message to the station of  the  Alienna ... Lord Khnum will arrive in two hours with his ally Achaman!"

 "Thank you for coming so quickly my friend." Allie addressed possibly the first System Lord she had allied with. "I hope I did not craw you away Sobek from anything pressing, but I feel this situation with Ba'al needs some remedial attention. We should though await the others, come we'll go to the main dining room, it is far more relaxing than the martial atmosphere of the receiving room. Have you been well?" She inquired.

(Khnum, the Station is in the Uncharted sector, not anywhere near Lucia)

Apo'tak Khnum
Travelling


Achaman had joined at the last moment, had reached the same Achaman along the way, getting caught by one of the planets along the way, for this he had not left immediately. The first step in becoming an enlightened ruler had been taken and this summit would have projected him towards a wider reality. Together with Doramas, his trusted First Prime had decided to engage more actively and to direct the control and government of the few but safe planets at the helm of Chaxiraxi. This not before assuring a margin of absolute security between the queen and her government, guaranteeing absolute loyalty. Within his private rooms, the ruler of Echeyde watched the tunnel created by the hyperspace engines. Around him the room was adorned with Egyptian depictions unlike normal goa'uld ships. Khnum had decided to show golden bas-reliefs on the walls as well as the usual columns of hieroglyphics, which typically decorated the walls of buildings and ha'tak goa'uld. Doramas was not the only one, even Aythami had been brought as a follow-up to the same Achaman, as if they were a couple also as bodyguards of the god goa'uld.

"In the future we should eliminate any rebellious goa'uld threat that threatens our survival, I believe that Alienna and her circle of allies is fundamental for the future of this galaxy, for the future of our race ..."

"... under normal conditions we would have sent dozens of ash'rak to solve this problem, but today we are forced to deal with it personally and if we want this thing it could have a positive effect in the future ..." Khnum said entering the room leaving the present surprised not to have heard the landlord and his entourage arrive.

"Lord Khnum, I didn't hear you, I have to admit that your ship's style is unique, but that's not what you want to talk to me about, I guess, the Alienna space station summit ..."

"You have done well, Vezkei. You can return home, to rest".
After that whole ordeal with the ruins and the cartouche, he could define himself satisfied. He had what he wanted, after all.

<<From Kapu>>

Why was this his business eluded him, though.
"Remind me again, my love, why is an assassination attempt on an upstart whom you despise supposed to attract our attention and, worse than that, our time and presence?".

"Because it is our chance to reveal that we are now one, and because I deem it wise to humor her at this moment in return for further... favors, let us say, the technological sharing initiative has after all remarkably helped me and then the both of us in building a war machine worthy of ourselves. Needless to mention, when she will have fulfilled her purpose, we will act accordingly" the queen explained without hiding her delight.

But, while Mamers was indeed impatient to reveal himself to the rest of the surviving System Lords to be finally made into one himself, he saw little but empty rhetoric behind his consort's intention to pay heed to Allienna's call. Odds were she didn't know herself what to expect and that her hopes were muddy and not properly articulated, but he preferred to keep his mouth shut.
The station was in sight and there was no turning back now.


After a few minutes, the Ha'tak finally docked and the two Goa'uld made their way to the hall, escorted by bull-headed Jaffa contingents.
Casually knocking on the door, Mamers plebeianly showed himself to those present.
"Hello?".
He was a coarse spectacle to behold, wearing sheep wool from chest to knees and a wolf pelt on his head, with the only truly good news being that he reeked of neither beast.
The plebeian appearance of the Goa'uld was compensated by his queen, gracefully wearing a different host from the one of her first meeting. Hopefully, she needn't an introduction.

 One of the unusual aspects of being a Goa'uld was recognition of one another, sight or the visual wasn't required. Essentially the Symbiote gave the host the ability to sense another in other ways, smell, voice and other small idiosyncrasies painted each individual. "Excuse me Sobek." She spoke quietly with her host's voice.

 Leaving her friend to help himself to the table she went to the entry, dipping her head only slightly. "Mefitis, Mamers, I thank you for answering my call so quickly. Please come in we are only waiting on Khnum and his retinue to arrive. You know Lord Sobek don't you?" She half turned, her hand held out in his direction. She was curious as to how far she could trust these two, their combined attitude towards her most recently wasn't what good relations should be based upon.

Khnum Flagship
Pel'tak


Khnum's flagship, the immense Apo'tak had been traveling for over an hour, it would have arrived much earlier if they hadn't waited for their host Achaman and his personal guard to arrive. But Khnum was not worried, he knew well that without his presence Alienna and those present would hardly have made important decisions. In the great pel'tak room, Achaman, who in the meantime had moved with his host Khnum, observed how the ship's sensors indicated the fast approaching of the coordinates of the goa'uld station.

"My lord Khnum, we are close to arriving at the coordinates, we transmit our signal to warn of our presence in a few minutes, in this way we would not have bad reactions towards us!" exclaimed the First Prime Rashaken turning to his lord seated on the throne at the far end of the room. The braziers illuminated the great hall, Achaman seated next to the same Khnum with a minor throne and surrounded on both sides by two mighty jaffas.

"Very well also communicate the presence of Lord Achaman, that he is not missing anything for our stay!" he replied ordering Khnum making his eyes sparkle. Two minutes after the immense flagship, the Apo'tak appeared on the station display as well as from the windows of the station itself. Khnum was waiting to disembark, he didn't know if through the use of shuttles or in other ways. He just had to wait.

<Meeting Station.>

Sobek of course would answer that he was well. One however did not need to be a God to know just how subject to quickly change that truly was. It made him feel well enough to know Allienna was safe after all the new order they brought to the galaxy could not take the strain of yet another blow especially not so soon. When Mefitis and Mamers arrived it was then some of his fears of chaos were put at rest.


Sobek walked up beside Allienna. “I am pleased to see you both here.”

Of course Khnum was still approaching the station. Sobek just hoped the Ram God was preparing some kind of argument or war plan to bring before them. Sobek himself certainly knew there were quite some things to be said, though there was no rush.

"Why, of course the Crocodile's antics with Kali and Bastet are known to me, though I thought him dead after what happened. I would have never thought I would have to be briefed about his survival by my splendid consort of all people, who had been living quite literally under a rock for millenia!" the Goa'uld crassly and loudly remarked. If there were any infringed sensibilities regarding either Mefitis or the Crocodile, the sheep-clothed and wolf-headed god had no idea. Or perhaps he merely didn't care. From his point of view, his discourse was one of appreciation of Sobek's resourceulness, and of the irony of Mefitis of all people meeting Sobek before he ever could. "What a fellow!" he jovially exclaimed, instictinvely clapping his hands exactly once.

If he would have ever met him in person before, he would have afforded himself an amicable pat on the Crocodile God's back, but even Mamers knew better than to take his confidence so far so soon, so he had at least the decency to avoid it this one time.
Some other time, perhaps.

To his side, Mefitis was beginning to show signs of embarassment at her consort's exuberant behavior, so used she was to the gravitas that distinguished most Goa'ulds. Worse than that, he had taken control of the situation, which made her feel powerless and unable to "correct" it.

Ever since Ra's death she had chosen to be somewhat in hiding, to remain by herself, not wanting any enemies of Ra to find her. She had, after all, been Ra's last mate and she wouldn't want to think of what cruelties some would do to her. Not because she was afraid - no, she wouldn't dream of succumbing to that - she simply wanted some time by herself to gather her strength and her forces after the loss. But a couple decades later, she had decided it was time. Once again she would venture out into the galaxy. After a meeting with Grundel, as well as some rather surprising discoveries, Sekhmet made yet another decision, to seek out the other daughter of Morrigan, Allienna, to offer what aid she could.

Sekhmet’s Ha’tak exited hyperspace close by the Station at about the same time as she moved to contact them, letting them know that she was there as she knew that would be a wise move. Not only because it was simply how it was done, but also because she was unsure of how much they actually knew about her name. Besides, she did not feel like being obliterated this day. As the communication device came to life, the Queen spoke.

“Greetings. I am Queen Sekhmet. I was informed of this gathering and wish to offer any aid that you may be in need of.” Her voice sounded confident, yet awaiting through the communication device. Her image was that of a beautiful and young, dark-haired woman with sun-kissed skin and an emotionless expression upon her face. She seemed to not give any hint to any thoughts she might have, simply awaiting their response, to gain permission to dock her ship.

 "My Lords." Allienna dipped her head respectfully to all three as she moved away. Things were moving apace and she needed to keep ahead of everything. Khnum was ready to join them and to her surprise Sekhmet. Someone she thought either dead long ago, or the stuff of legends and tales. One thing at a time.

 "Lord Khnum welcome." She began over the communicator. "You are cleared to dock in bay five. The usual security contingent will escort you to the meeting room." She expected him to use a Tel'tak as did most everyone. Though if he wanted to show off, the station can accommodate a standard Hat'ak if necessary.

 From there she switched to the vocuum device to receive the latest call. Her sun tanned face matched that of the other, that was where any similarity ended. Allie's blonde tresses were in stark contrast to the dark hair of Sekhmet. "Your arrival Sekhmet is timely and I gladly accept whatever aid you may bring. There is much to speak of, and naturally we all here will be anxious to know of your self imposed reclusive state. Sending you the coordinates to navigate through the asteroid field, then once you're near the station you may dock via Tel'tak to bay nine. We look forward to your arrival."

Khnum Apo'tak

The immense flagship of Khnum appeared on the horizon in a whitish glow typical of Hyperdrive goa'uld. Like Apophis before him, Apo'tak aroused fear only by looking at it, so huge, powerful and with a decidedly aggressive design although in line with the typical lines of goa'uld architecture, at least until then. On board the flagship, Khnum was in the pel'tak room together with Achaman himself, with whom he had shared the journey to Alienna station.

"We are once again in this place, I must say that he is starting to appreciate this station, although Alienna's tastes are really so atypical and in some ways at least for some of us revolting ..."

"I  agree... Lord Achaman, the architecture of this station begins to become familiar, in any case I guess they are going to send us the landing coordinates and permission to do it, we cannot however enter with this ship, I would say that it would not enter the interior of the orbital station, it would be better to use a tel'tak as a custom, we will be able to have our respective First Prime and the same Lo'taur! " Khnum replied looking at the ally. Achaman nodded before the landlord waved First prime to the ship's controls on a table placed near the ship's control console.

"My lord ... we sent the answer, they are waiting for us with the usual treatment, the tel'tak shuttle is ready at least that Lord Achaman does not want to use a second one for some reason in particular!" Rashaken added, turning to the two goa'ulds.

"We will go together, Alienna knows that the axis of power between our domains is among the strongest in the galaxy and this must be reiterated also on this occasion, but by the way there is too much ha'tak ... Mefitis like this like Sobek must have already arrived, but that ha'tak ... "Khnum added knowing full well that Rashaken would immediately start the scans. It didn't take long before the results appeared on the viewer.

"The design and the energy brand tell us that it is an old ha'tak MK I, max speed 10 times the speed of light, no cloaking device, weapons and standard shields pre Anubis, it could be a ship requisitioned to some goa 'uld deceased by one of his successors ... "the First Prime concluded by waiting for a reply.

"We'll find out soon, let's go to this summit!" Achaman added in turn as the scene fades and shows us the tel'tak splashing out from the lower part of the Apotak, headed for the orbital station.

The colourful blue and red coloured robes of Sobek swayed as he stepped forward. He kept silent allowing Mamers to speak. The Goa’uld knew of him though Sobek was not filled with pride, to him survival was the lowest accomplishment he had achieved. Mamers though seemed quite pleased with the situation, Sobek felt a tinge of uncomfortableness at this.

It was then Allienna politely stepped away leaving Sobek standing there with Mamers and Mefitis. The Crocodile Lord clenched his teeth for a moment thinking about the current meeting ahead and what he even had to say to Mamers.

“I am pleased you were able to join Mefitis for the  current Summit gathering.” He says with a grin.

“Times have been certainly difficult up until recently, but I am prepared to lead our kind to glory over our foes.” The Crocodile Lord spoke.

He found himself quite happy with recently how not only his own but the forces of his fellow Goa’uld had regrouped and expanded. The galaxy belonged to them, the rest of the galaxy needed to be reminded of that.

Sekhmet's brown eyes observed the other as she spoke, only to give a light nod upon Allienna's words as if to confirm that she would give reason to her actions. Of course Sekhmet had had her reasons for staying hidden, good reasons in her opinion and even if she did not much want to speak of them, she knew she had to to gain their trust. "Thank you." Sekhmet bowed her head in respect. "I will see all of you soon."

Then her image disappeared from the device, she had ended the conversation as she saw no reason to converse any further like that. There was no time to spare. In some way, she was looking forward to meeting some new ones of her kind. In comparison to the old, boring ones she had spent the previous decades with, she was certain this would be a nice change of pace.

It did not take her as much time to navigate through the asteroid field as she had thought it would when she first laid eyes upon it. With the coordinates she found it to be rather easy and it was not long after that that a Tel'tak docked to bay nine as told before the Queen herself stepped out into the Station, having rediscovered a small piece of her old, eager self.

The tel'tak landed as a request to bay number 9 and Khnum together with Achaman landed in the large station, accompanied by their First Prime and the two respective lo'taur. After passing through corridors and large halls, Achaman and the ruler of the planet Khenem entered a large hall that they both already knew. Khnum was the first to address Alienna herself and the Goa'ulds present.

"My brothers, once again we meet again in a few hours, Alienna was only missing you but apparently there are unexpected surprises or am I wrong?" he finally asked, smiling and moving towards the landlady.

 "My Lord Khnum, thank you for coming so quickly." She told him by the entry door, dismissing the Jaffa escort of the station. "We have a problem, one of which will take our combined efforts to address." She began walking back to the others.

 "My Lords, now that Khnum is here we have but one other to join us. Please find refreshment until she arrives." Tapping her personal coms link, she instructed other guards to escort the Queen to them, she received the reply she expected.

 Some two levels up, six Jaffa a mixture drawn from each of the System Lords attending. One of Allienna's Leopard Guards was in command today. "Lord Sekhment, I am Ethiel." A red head, her tresses like many of her clan done in a myriad of braids, seen only because unlike the other guards her helmet was removed. A fair face, freckled and looking much younger than her forty something years might depict, she looked more like a pretty farm girl than a warrior. Don't let appearances fool you. she gave a stiff bow, as much as her tight fitting black polished armor would allow. "Please, allow me to escort you to the meeting hall."

 Several minutes later, after using one of the level transporters, the bootsteps of the Jaffa was heard outside the meeting room. Ethiel stepped forward, speaking in a clear commanding voice. "My Lords, may I present Lord and Queen, Sekhment." She made another half bow before backing away.

 Allienna looked up, she was surprised, the host looked even younger than herself, pretty in a petulant way. "You are most welcome Sekhment, most welcome indeed."

Khnum's arrival was met tepidly by Mefitis, with the usual formal nods and smiles, though Mamers, true to himself, was the louder and more exuberant one.
"Ah, Lord Khnum, a pleasure to meet you. At last I meet face to face the master of the brave warriors who helped my team secure the treasure" he said without hiding his gratitude. That cartouche opened the way for thousands of new worlds to settle and exploit. On the long term, a key factor in evening the odds against the accursed Tau'ri and their allies. If all that was left of a proud civilization could still afford the luxury of thinking long term against a people whose feeble existence only allowed it to plan short to medium term and consequently be more flexible and unpredictable in its decisions, that is. "How was your trip?".

Sekhmet's presence, on the other hand, was a surprise for Mefitis, though much less so for Mamers who had been distantly familiar with her when he was in service of Cronus. At the very least he could rely on second-hand rumors.
Mefitis, on the other hand, had never even heard of her.
Perceiving his consort's unfamiliarity with this new guest, Mamers leaned towards his queen. "The Lioness" he whispered, paraphrasing her totemic animal. "She was the mate of Ra for some time, but when the Tau'ri murdered him, she went into hiding, clearly until recently. You wouldn't know, she is much younger than the two of us".

In seeing her in the hologram, the queen was visibly impressed. Something about her well-composed demeanour, her gravitas, and the fact that she had been the mate of the one Goa'uld she always considered a model. And the host... an exquisite sight to behold.
"How old is she?" the queen whispered back, leaning towards Mamers.
"Two millenia old". Not a child, but not ancient either. Indeed, she wasn't even alive when Mefitis had left the First World, but considering what she had gone through, there was probably very little she figured she could teach this one, despite her inferior age.
Essentially, Mefitis saw in this one a kindred spirit, hopefully a proper traditionalist.

When Allienna finally introduced the newcomer, a warm smile formed on Mefitis's face as she rose from her throne before the others did. "We bid you welcome, queen Sekhmet".

The Crocodile Lord felt no desire or need for refreshments at this current time. With the others gathering he really only wished to stick to the matter of business that brought them all there. Still he wanted to be polite, but it wasn’t often that he was able to get updates on the other Goa’uld’s domains unless they sought his help. He found it most intriguing when a new member of their kind arrived. The visage of Sekhmet caught his eye, someone that he would not have expected to still be alive after the events in the galaxy.

He by no means knew her personally but was aware of her reputation. He wondered deep down though just who she was now, or at least who she considered herself to be. Khnum’s arrival around the same time with his question quickly answered made Sobek raise an eyebrow, a surprise indeed. The Crocodile God moved toward his more diplomatic brother in that moment giving Lord Khnum a respectful greeting before Achaman in turn.

“Lord Khnum, I trust you found your way here easily.” He said thankful to the Ram God for his offering of various upgrades that had surely made his fleets far more effective.

Sobek stood aside slightly to allow Mefitis and her consort to greet Khnum and vice versa. The pair seemed equally glad to greet him. It was then Mefitis spoke to the new arrival after Allienna’s Jaffa introduced her. It was clear everyone was  taking great interest. Sobek decided to observe the interaction Sekhmet made with others, it was for him a time to see why she was here and indeed if there was something she wanted.

“Lord Achaman, I trust that you too have fared well?” He didn’t really know quite as much about the more spontaneous Goa’uld but he at least knew he could trust him to stand with him.


Despite the surprise to Sobek it changed very little, each one of them had spent a great deal of time recovering from the collapse of the third dynasty. So much had been lost he’d even been convinced allowing Ba’al to remain with them had been a good political move. Regardless he wasn’t responsible for what had happened. Ra’s past mistakes were finally being washed away and from that came rebirth, at least he was certain Khnum understood and wished this as well.

Allienna he at least hoped had the information they sought to put that traitor down for good after so many years of him playing with the very soul and legacy of their Empire. More and more Sobek received reports of minor engagements with there new challengers across the galaxy, as always standing together was necessary for survival but it was now extremely clear to him that this would be it, there would be no more chances after this one.

Khnum and his trusted ally Achaman arrived at the ahngar indicated on board the tel'tak that the first had made available to both. Both were greeted as always, without much emphasis and with a lukewarm emotion from those present at the station goa'uld. This did not annoy Khnum, calm and laid-back by nature, but irritated Achaman who considered their lack of attention to their person, a lack of respect, especially with his person in particular. The two goa'uld together with their First primes and their respective lo'taur, up to the room where Alienna and other goa'uld present greeted with a nod. then One by one, the main goa'ulds turned first to Khnum and only Sobek paid further attention to Achaman himself.

"We arrived quickly thanks to the engines of the Khnum flagship despite the fact that we were late, in any case it is always a pleasure to be able to see and compare our points of view to make our alliance powerful again, after all we all want one thing. ..the restoration of the Goa'uld Empire! " Achaman concluded by speaking openly to those present.

"I see with pleasure that we have a guest ... Sekhment the bride of Ra, the last bride of the one I served, it is a pleasure to know that you survived the holocaust after the fall of the Empire, we would have the opportunity to compare ourselves better than the rest we both belong to that royal family, now in ruins! " Khnum added in turn Sekhment itself.

Upon being greeted by the Guard who presented herself as Ethiel, Sekhmet takes a moment to observe her as she speaks, before she gives a light nod. "Greetings, Ethiel. You may do so." Then she proceeds to follow the Guard to the meeting hall, stopping slightly as she is presented to the other when arriving there.

The first to gain her attention is Allienna, upon which Sekhmet grants a smile as she is rather pleased by her words. Being welcomed like this is most pleasing indeed. "Thank you, Allienna. I am pleased to be here." The Queen then takes the moment to step a bit further into the room as her gaze goes to Mefitis when she too greets her, something Sekhmet gains a light smile of. She gives a light, polite bow both to her and Mamers. "The pleasure is all mine." Everyone seemed to know who she was, althought she herself did not really know any of them, something that for the moment bothered her just a little bit.

Sobek, though. Sekhmet greets him as well, bowing her head gracefully, giving a smile as she folds her hands over her stomach. Her red dress with gold details, even some golden shoulderpads seems to suit her perfectly. "Greetings."

"So you served Ra.." She turns to Khnum, raising her chin slightly as her former mate is mentioned. Still, her lips form a smile. "All is not yet lost. We will rebuild our Empire!" It clearly seems she has some kind of hope or perhaps she simply is filled with the pride that follows by being part of that royal family. A sense of pride that has not yet left her from her time with Ra. After speaking she looks to Achaman, bowing her head politely as if to greet him as well. She considered it important to greet each and every one of them, being that they could be potential allies and allies was what she needed. Amongst other things.

"Unfortunately Lord Sekhment, the reconstruction from these rvine is difficult, but we are doing everything possible to make this feasible, it is a pleasure to see that the last queen of Ra has survived, I imagine that you made sure to surround yourself only with truly collaborators valid, in any case we would have time to talk about your past until today, today we have to discuss a problem that we all have to solve definitively now! " Khnum completed while Achaman in turn continued the sentence of the ruler of Khenem.

"Ba'al is a problem for all of us, we have to solve this problem once and for all or we could really regret it in the future, if there is a future given its actions!" he completed looking at those present, noting how all those present nodded, of course, Sekhment, that new to this knowledge and facts! "he completed making his eyes sparkle.

 With the formalities out of the way, stewards guided the gathered to their respective chairs, pulling them out for them. They were plush velvet, a deep red with gilded gold arms and legs, they wouldn't be out of place in any royal palace.

 As she sat, Allie took a moment to look closely at each face, all Goa'uld, but all in some way seeing things with a different perspective. She was no different. Other stewards, resplendent in the special livery of the base, a cream loose fitting shirt with puffed sleeves, dark pants of a blue shade with a red seam down the side. Black immaculately polished boots stopping just short of the knee; each one bearing the Jaffa tattoo of their respective masters. They brought food and wine, mostly what the humans would deem as 'finger' food to suit the occasion.

 "I am pleased to have you here Sekhmet." Courtesy went a long way. "To bring you all up to date, these are the events as has taken place in the last thirty six hours. The day before yesterday, several SGC teams of the Tauri came under attack on a remote planet we all knew as one of Ba'al's old training grounds. It should have been abandoned, they soon found out differently. The day before that, SG4 went seeking clarity on information I had fed to the Tok'ra concerning a biological lab on another human planet, the work there was being carried out by agents of the Trust, hated by all and we can now assume under his command." Taking a sip of wine she continued. "Yesterday late, someone obviously targeting me, tried to poison one of my advisors. She survived thankfully. And as of now, SG1 and SG4 are pursuing another site we left clues for them to find, this time my spies indicated some kind of data is being gathered for a super weapon. All of these events has his stink on them."

 That was a lot to take in of course, but there was more. "While as of now it is suspected Ba'al is hiding on Earth and while that is so, we cannot strike directly at him. We can though cut off his galactic resources, that is the reason for you all being here now."

Sobek simply stood and waited noticing Sekhmet greet each of them in turn. Eventually she turned to him giving him her greetings. Sobek said nothing but did bow his head greeting her back with some level of respect but remaining wary of just why she was here. It was then the stewards moved in giving the signal that time for such idled chat was over and now the most important beings in the galaxy would discuss important future matters.

The Crocodile Lord sat upon the chair, leaning and resting his back against the red velvet. He was pleased to see food and drink brought out, he however for the moment did not allow himself the opportunity to indulge as he felt it currently unfitting.

As they all settled Sobek allowed Allienna to begin updating them so as to make sure all were aware of what was going on outside the safe borders of their territories. Despite finding the Tau’ri acronyms extremely unpleasant to his ears he listened and did his best to rerun  the details given through his mind.

He found a little pleasure in the thought of the Tau’ri falling under attack, trespassing on worlds they had no right to tread. Sending information about one enemy to another to make them challenge one another, a bittersweet victory at best was all that was possible with Tok’ra involved. Allienna then spoke of more attacks upon them, it was clear that Ba’al was striking at them while hiding behind the Tau’ri for defence, they could not allow such acts to continue.

Indeed Allienna felt the need to stress that they could not strike at him directly so long as he hides there which filled Sobek with much anger. He truly wanted to know for sure the two were not simply in some secret alliance plotting against them but he ignored asking such questions for now. The fact that Ba’al even had any assets left at all was an inconvenience that had gotten old extremely quickly.

“If it means gathering the heads of every last one of his remaining followers then you have my interest.” Sobek said wondering just what Allienna had in mind.

“If Ba’al intends to use his followers as a means to poke his head out of the sand then so be it.” The Crocodile God truly didn’t understand why any one of their kind would even want to hide out on Earth with an entire galaxy of options, truly Ba’al had to be mad.

By the time she finally took her seat, Sekhmet showed no noticeable signs of pressure.
That the newcomer took to greeting those present one by one was a welcome feat to both Mamers and his queen, who appreciated its positive repercussions in Sekhmet's relationship with her peers and, in the case of Mefitis, also the simple mix of grace and genuinity with which the Lioness responded to these stimuli, in the queen's opinion one of the many manifestations of royalty.

When Allienna finally began to explain the reason for their summoning, both Mamers and Mefitis almost fell to sleep, so futile this summoning appeared to be to them. Mamers despised Ba'al but could not consider him a threat, so used he was to conventional might that he absolutely disregarded the Canaanite's cunning, while Mefitis still kept wondering why he had to be his enemy, of all people.
It was the mention of a "super weapon" to reawaken both Goa'ulds's interests, and the idea that the Tau'ri - or rather those commanded by Ba'al who foolishly expected to turn on him at some point - could get a hold of it terrified them both.

Mamers jumped from his throne, with lamb meat still in his mouth. "A biolog..." coughs followed under the perplexed faces of those present, some entertained, some rolling their eyes. "Eat as you speak..." his queen thought as she rolled her eyes.
Finally, with his snack swallowed, he could demand an explanation. "A biological weapon?".
A daring hypothesis, but it was what he could conjecture by the chain of events and contexts mentioned by Allienna. The poison on her advisor must have come from the Trust's facility that the accursed Tau'ri found.
For her part, Mefitis was finally alarmed as well, if not for the danger posed to Allienna (who she could not manage to consider a comrade no matter what. In this case, it must have been her contact with the degenerate Tok'ra - a million curses on their name and their deceased queen - to give her discomfort) for the danger posed to all of her species if this was indeed a biological weapon.
After all, she could only send Ba'al against so many Goa'uld for so long before it was her turn.
No, if this was what she thought it was, it should have been secured at all costs.

"If what you say Alienna is true, then we have both a problem and an opportunity, the tau'rì are a threat and a resource, it just depends on how we can exploit them or fight them to the best of our ability ..." added Achaman after sipping something that had to be wine and giving it back to his lo'taur while Doramas behind the System Lord watched in silence.

"A biological weapon, really possible that Ba'al wants to try something so daring, in fact as Achaman says, could also be something to our advantage, especially if it eliminated the tau'rì, in this way the forces of the rebel jaffas would be more than halved, not being able to count on advanced technology, we could sweep them away more easily don't you think? " Khnum added in turn, smiling maliciously as he watched the faces of those present. Who was doubtful, who potentially smug.

Sekhmet took her place upon the chair she was lead to, graciously sitting down and lifting her gaze to fall upon Allienna after giving a glance to the steward offering food and drink. For now choosing to not accept any of it as she wished to be focused upon the task at hand and nothing else.

She was not one to not pay attention to Allienna's words - as soon as she began speaking it was as if Sekhmet blocked everything unnecessary out and gave every bit of her attention to Allienna. She had learned at an early age the importance of this and thus it was something she practiced at every moment that deemed it necessary. Upon the mention of a 'super weapon' she raised her chin a tiny little bit, as if worried by the thought. Her face though remained emotionless.

She remained quiet as the others gave their thoughts and comments about it all, herself being within deep thought, though still paying attention to their words. "The Tau'ri are indeed a resource, why do we not use them as such." She said, agreeing with Achaman, knowing well that the Tau'ri also was a threat to them. How could she forget that when it was their fault that she had lost her mate? Still, even by the thought of this she did not show much expression other than a very small glint of anger in  her eyes upon mentioning the Tau'ri. She did not much like them and so, if Ba'al wished to use them up, then so be it. It was, however, that super weapon that worried her more than any of the other two.

"How do you propose we cut off Ba'al's resources?" Sekhmet then asked, interested in knowing more. More about Allienna's thoughts of how they were to do this and preferably more about this super weapon, if it was indeed something biological. Knowledge being the key if anything were to be successful, at least that was her opinion.

"In fact, how could we stop Ba'al, cut his resources, it seems difficult to me at least that Alienna already has an idea about it ... as far as I'm concerned, I have very little to offer, but surely Khnum could give you more assistance than I would do, unless you have a much more precise plan! " he completed Achaman by showing his reluctance to possibly participate in any mission. Those present watched him carefully before Alienna or some other goa'uld spoke, not even Khnum said anything, despite Achaman having indicated it as a potential help for that mission.

 Holding up a slender finger Allienna had several points to make. "As many of you are aware Ba'al was my mother's lover for many centuries, yet when I suppose since the Tauri had awoken she saw him for what he really was, she with Bastet began conspiring against him. He never found out until the two of them were imprisoned on Olympus. Indeed Morrigan forbade me or anyone to think she was not still in league with him. As you know, it cost her dearly." She inclined her head to Sekhmet, of course she was unaware of the circumstances. At another time she would tell her.

 "Now that she is safe again, many of his secrets that she was aware of she has passed onto me. We now have the positions of several of his worlds, kept hidden from us for the last ten years. Worlds he has been training both Jaffa and humans from across the galaxy including Earth, to help him rule once again." Pressing a crystal on her wrist device, a large hologram was displayed at the furthest end of the table. "None of these worlds have Chappaai, his own insecurities." She pointed to three of them.

(https://cdnw.nickpic.host/sU2HTA.jpg)

 "Yes I am afraid we are dealing with biological weapons and then something else. One of those worlds holds the key to his main power and these three I have not fed to the Tauri, which brings me to your point Sekhmet, we are indeed using them much to their ignorance." He eyes met with those of Achaman. "A wise old Egyptian saying, to kill a snake one must cut of his head. If we eliminate his power base out here, on Earth he will be just another Goa'uld on the run looking over his shoulder until they close the noose on him."

Studying the map, the spread of Ba'al's remaining words appeared curious and following its own rules.
Isolated from each other and with no stargate, Mamers wondered how contact was even maintained, assuming there was contact, anyway.

Curiously enough, one of the Canaanite's holdings, in the farthest galactic east, lied not too far from the homeworld of a cowardly human people which, he had heard, waged warfare through genetically-tailored weapons which induced sterility, something which prompted him to instinctively reach for the warmth of his consort's hand.
Was this a coincidence?
Was Ba'al in league with these people?

In the end, this was as bad as he thought, Ba'al was indeed attempting to wipe out his own kind, using at the very least the Tau'ri as muscle.
Interestingly enough, the existence of biological weapons directly targeting Goa'uld and, less directly, their hosts, was known to him, but the poison that had been circulating for so long throughout the galaxy was known to be deployed in a gaseous form which would have been ridiculously easy to discover, though the warped minds that designed such weapon never counted on using subtle methods in the first place considering the extremely quick operation of the agent.
This one, while less effective, was stealthier, which made him wonder how Allienna's advisor came in contact with the biological weapon in the first place.
Was it a vulgar poison to be spread in the foods and drinks, or something more sophisticated?
Mamers had one last question. "How was this biological weapon deployed on your advisor?".

"Three planets without stargate, accessible only through the orbit with conveyor rings or with the asgard transport, a truly enviable situation, to reach these locations we would have to send a tel'tak or an Al'kesh that is hiding with the cloaking device and with the asgard beam to be able to pick up and move anyone at any time! "

"In addition, this biogenetic or biological weapon or whatever it is, is still a problem that we must eliminate, I believe that cutting the head of the snake is not enough, especially knowing well that Ba'al is not new being able to unite and amplify the few resources in his possession, a biological weapon would not be a strange thing, especially by those who exploit anyone for his purposes! "

"Furthermore, if he intends to eliminate us using the tau'rì as an armed arm, we must kill him and destroy this weapon, we must not make the mistakes of the past, when in an attempt to divide our resources, we came to a situation that led to our ruin!" finally concluded the ruler of Khenem looking at Alienna and immediately after both Mamers and Sekhment. He did not need to have the approval of Sobek or Achaman, he knew well that they both thought with him, certainly Achaman.

The Crocodile Lord focused on Allienna. The holographic map of the galaxy appeared showing the designated positions throughout the galaxy that were confirmed to still be under the control of Ba’al. It seemed Ba’al was hiding, hedging his bets on one single weapon. It was a crime that could not be forgiven, he had to be put down now.

Sobek did not favour biological weapons, instead he preferred a good old fashion army. It reminded him of Nirrti, nobody had liked her but the old System Lords had foolishly kept her around for far too long. If there was one thing he was used to after all these Millenia it was warfare and so he considered their options.

“Do we have more details on these worlds?” He asks Allienna. “A rough estimate of how many ships Ba’al still has in his possession?”

Surely by now they had more than enough resources at their disposals to outnumber the forces of Ba’als relic of a fleet. Although it was likely that Ba’al knew they would be coming.

“We must act quickly and be prepared to stop the spread of this contamination, at any and all costs.” There was no way they could allow it to be set loose.

Sobek glanced over at Sekhmet. He found himself wondering just what her reason for being here was, he recognised that she had used we indicating she perhaps was hoping to join them.

“Queen Sekhmet, do you intend to share your resources for the purpose of targeting these worlds?” Indeed The Crocodile Lord wished to know what part she was to play.

Post by: Sekhmet on January 27, 2020, 04:21:38 AM
As the hologram was displayed, Sekhmet seemed to pay more attention to that than anything else, studying it and taking mental notes of where those worlds were. Of course, she did perceive Allienna's words, everything she said and all else as well, though she did not give any reaction to it until her name was mentioned by Allienna upon which she raised her chin slightly as if to acknowledge it. It pleased her somewhat that they indeed used the Tau'ri to their own ignorance.

Her attention, for a moment, went towards Khnum as he seemed to seek her approval of his words to which she responded with a light nod. She did agree, this was a problem that had to be dealt with and she believed that with their combined efforts it was possible to accomplish some sort of victory over it. It would however not be easy, she deemed.

She was as well as Mamers interested in knowing how the biological weapon was deployed upon Allienna’s advisor if only to learn more of what they was up against. She didn’t much like the thought of a biological weapon that could be used against them. If she got it the way she wanted, such a thing would never even have existed.

Then, Sobek addressed her upon which Sekhmet looked to him seemingly considering her words for a few seconds before speaking. "I do." She said. "I would assume that my resources may be useful to this purpose." If not, she surely had other things to offer them if need be. Her reasons for being there and for showing interest in even offering her assistance was many, and biggest was the reason that she seeked an alliance. To join them.

"A biological weapon had already been created by the Tok'ra, just when Anubis reappeared and destroyed the underground base on the planet Revanna, from what we know the crystal that contained the formula was stolen by the Tau'rì and later exploited with wide margins by a Tau'rì organization called The Trust, to eliminate the last goa'uld strongholds of Ba'al himself ... "

"it is not said that Ba'al did not come into contact with a portion of the compound, we know that the compound affects only the symbiote, but in doing so on the jaffà, it also kills the latter, really a weapon that should be banned for our good! " added the ruler of Khenem, attracting the attention of Sekhment who probably knew nothing of this compound. Achaman smiled observing the interested behavior of Sekhment, moreover this queen was unknown to him, there was little information available, he wanted to know more.

"In any case we should have his formula to find a counter weapon, don't you think?" added Achaman smiling with pride.

 By now Allie was drumming her fingers with impatience as she looked up, those innocent blue eyes had turned to ice. "A simple poison dart, a type used by many human tribes across the galaxy for bringing down large animals. Had it hit the Symbiote, Maegwin would not have recovered. Fortunately the assassin whether by choice or sloppiness missed by a hair." Gathering her thoughts she pressed on.

 "As for the actual weaponised version he is possibly planning, so far I've not found out exactly what path he is proceeding to. It may well be as we've seen in the past with as mentioned, something like the Tok'ra developed, targeting us in particular. Or..." She flicked a lock of hair from her face. "....something entirely different altogether, Khnum." Again she looked up, this time at Sobek. "The only data I've been able to gather is on that planet in between Asculum and Tahonas. From what my spies have been able to find out is it was a former colony of Her'ur's, one he never bothered with other than mining gold, which ran out eons ago. For the most part Ba'al is using it as a training ground over the various terrains. A largish continent that straddles the equator offers him everything from desert to jungle, green forests to icy plains and mountains. Apparently he has built a temporary mini city there for urban warfare training." From this point she had to look at her data pad, shaking her head.

 "As usual when planning a strike he has been as elusive as ever. I cannot gather any intelligence on ship numbers apart from the few we've seen going between those three worlds. I should mention that the world nearer to the old Aschen holdings was once under Sokar's domain and from what we know of that, it might well be heavily industrialised." Offering her hand across the table she said to Sekhment. "Whatever aid you deem worthy, will be gratefully accepted."

The Crocodile God a slow approving nod when Sekhmet offered what help she could. He had no care for those that would sit back and watch. Some of his mind seemed quite interested in taking this weapon and keeping it for their own uses. For now Sobek assumed the weapon was too much of a threat to be kept. They had a vast array of technology, this weapon was nothing but the weapon of a weak coward who was hiding unable to challenge their power, he had no interest in using it.

“I hope Maegwin makes a full recovery.” He said being at least slightly sympathetic.

Allienna then explained how one of the planets would have a city for Jaffa training. Sobek has to wonder why Ba’al would bother if he intended to remain with his head in the sand, still they couldn’t be underestimated if they were training for something. The fact that the numbers of ships were unknown did concern him though.

“If we are to launch an attack we must make sure our force is adequately sized.” Sobek responded.

Post by: Sekhmet on February 01, 2020, 03:06:38 AM
Sekhmet had indeed heard of that poison, though it was nothing but rumours that she had come across. So far she had had nothing to do with the poison itself. She listened to Khnum with an interested look upon her face, nodding slightly as he finished. Her agreement to his words was clear. “Of course.” She said, then looking to Achaman, smiling lightly. “We should definitely find some kind of way to counter it, indeed.”

Allienna’s words was then paid attention to, Sekhmet’s brows furrowing as she spoke due to a question rising within her mind. “Was the assassin caught?” She figured not, though she would like to know either way. If the assassin had been caught, they would probably be sitting on a lot more information about the whole event. Probably.

Giving Allienna a smile, Sekhmet nodded lightly. “I can offer some of my forces, at the least any assistance you may need.” Sekhmet gives Sobek a glance, before adding a few words. “Our combined efforts in any attack should result in a force strong enough, although I for one would like to know that I do not send my forces into something they are unable to handle.”  

She would like to find out more about the size of the enemy they were up against, though for now she wasn’t sure if that even was an option. Sending her forces into something that could turn into a massacre was, however, definitely not an option.

"I agree with Sekhment, neither I nor any of the others present, but we could send an undercover commando, Alienna could send it, I make available the laboratories on the moon Qa'ab, the Maharraqa Temple that you know well ..."

"Lord Serapis and the team of scientists will analyze the biological weapon and find a way to counter it effectively, unless you already have a Lord Alienna idea?" Khnum concluded smiling at the landlady. Behind Khnum, the Lo'taur was new as far as the ruler of Khenem was concerned. The previous one had aged beyond the pre-established threshold to be a possible guest for Khnum, but not wanting to kill him, Khnum had arranged for his forced residence on the planet Khenem, not before having eliminated his memory. In its place, a new trusted young man, no more than 25 years old, but thanks to the nanocytes, he did not age except 1/1000 for each past year.

As usual, Mefitis struggled to take Allienna's word for it. The modus operandi that was being attributed to Ba'al was erratic to say the least and generally scarcely believable.
What was the point of exposing the weapon's existence by using it as a dart, while then focusing on different methods of deployment? How did she even know he intended to weaponize it in more than one way?
And, of course, why testing it on Maegwin rather than on the leader herself?

The queen rose from her throne before Allienna could reply, as if to take precedence over her. If Mamers would've done so without knowing the implications of such an act, Mefitis knew what this meant, and what kind of message was to be vehiculated.
"I concur with Lord Khnum. An undercover mission would be ideal, if only to receive further informations regarding this biological weapon. It is clear that we need a clearer and more concise picture of what we're dealing with".

Behind her, her consort attempted a rebuttal of her caution. "What a waste of time... we know the location of his worlds, why shouldn't we attack with everything we have and crush the cockroach once and for all?".

A few moments passed as the queen drew a deep breath, then she turned towards Mamers. She could swear she was dealing with a child, sometimes. "Would you have us strike blindly, my love? Pointlessly waste resources on an enemy that perhaps knows about us far more than we know about him?". And, she reasoned, a prepared enemy is one who knows how to defend himself. Hopefully, Mamers understood that.

Finally, she turned back towards the others. It was time to ingratiate herself with the newcomer. "I would find it wise to send our fleets to annihilate Ba'al's forces only after having reached a parity of information and means, which leads me to you" the queen's eyes now stared exactly in the direction of the Lioness. "Lady Sekhmet, it is my understanding that your forces couldn't benefit from the technological sharing program that this most august council has agreed to in the past, and it is my intention to remedy to this. I intend to offer my resources for the upgrade of the weapons and systems of your ships, with your permission. Even with allies, it would be extremely unwise to face Ba'al's defenses with - no offense - antiquate means".

Behind her, Mamers stood silent, but firm. He didn't appear to be intimidated, merely in silent agreement, and his face showed. It was his queen's mistake to vainly take this silence for weakness.
Under different circumstances and knowing the god of war's attitude, a slap in her face with no care for her otherwordly face and flawless skin, was the least he would've answered her with if he would have only been unconvinced of her point. After all, no one took control of his resources without his permission, and her technology was his now.

" exclaimed surprisingly making his speech Achaman looking at those present in the hope of welcoming approval. Khnum looked at him for a moment and intensely before replying in turn.

"It could be an interesting idea, but I think Alienna already has a plan or am I wrong?" Khnum replied smiling, knowing that the ruler of Magtireth certainly had a plan A.

 The blonde looked down at the polished surface of the table momentarily, in that she could easily see her own reflection; it showed her worry lines on such a young face. They would go of course in time, yet for now it was a small price to pay to meet the end goal. "My last communication indicated she will make a full recovery, other then her pride for letting her guard down, Sobek. She has served me well and the loss of her would have been immeasurable." Added to this as she leaned her head towards Sekhmet. "Alas no. By the time my guards found Maegwin, the trail was long gone. I fear he or she may have entered the palace by some means other than either the Chappa'ai or the ring transporters. Both have been too well guarded." Finding the assassin would of course be another of a thousand threads to follow, they had to focus on one.

 The talk continued, which target was relevant and which wasn't. While finding out exactly what his biological weapon and its delivery was imperative, weakening his forces had to be placed first. "Dear friends. As I understand the way of things at this present time, the Tauri are in pursuit of this weapon as we speak. They have as much in the way of resources as we do, so I suggest we focus on eliminating what we can and quickly. To that I have a gift for you all to aid us." Touching her wrist device a large hologram appeared in the center of the table, what it showed was a medium sized ship, a very dangerous looking one, that was holding orbit above the planet below the Meeting Station.

"A new experimental Alienna ship .... characteristics of this vessel since the design is not goa'uld at all!" Achaman exclaimed in surprise, watching the hologram of the ship appear before his eyes. He did not like this style so similar to that of the Tau'rì, but it was not the first time that the goa'uld had built spaceships or other ships inspired by the style of other peoples considered inferior, such as the drilling machine on the planet Langara.

"I admit that its shape does not particularly exalt me, it will have great qualities otherwise frankly speaking, it does not fit my tastes!" he concluded with a smile, seeking the complicity of Khnum and at least Sobek. He did not know Sekhmet's thought, he would have learned it shortly in any case.

For a moment Sekhmet wasn't certain if she should indeed feel offended by Mefitis's words or not, but she quickly brushed it off, giving her her attention instead. If one thing was a fact it was that her ships was old, but it still had served her well for over a thousand years. She was aware that it would need an upgrade, and so she bowed her head lightly towards Mefitis. "You have my permission to do so." She said, knowing well that the time would come for her to repay that gesture, most likely. Nothing in this world came for free.

Sekhmet's gaze now went to Allienna as she explained that the assassin had not been caught, which was a shame in many ways, but still a case that had no priority as of now.

When then the hologram showed the ship that was offered to each one of them, Sekhmet raised her chin as she observed it. The ship itself looked acceptable to Sekhmet even if she wasn't a big fan of the style, though since she knew that both things and people changed with time, she chose to accept it for what it was. Necessary to complete their task. "These are fine ships, they will serve us well." She stated, a small nod to Allienna was given.

The Crocodile Lord sat patiently in his chair simply listening to the others speak and ask questions. Quickly they seemed to be coming to a fast agreement on what had to be done.
Sobek’s eyes met the light from a hologram as Allienna activated the image revealing something that until now had apparently been hidden.

Sobek studied the image as Achaman made his comments on the design. “I see your shipyards have been quite busy.” Sobek said to Allienna curious about the vessels.

“It is noble of you to share these vessels with us, most especially if we are to put down this rogue once and for all.” The vessels would certainly be an interesting display to their enemies.

It seemed they were in agreement for the most part and Sobek was eager to put down this enemy force. However Ba’al was an extremely slippery foe and certainly had a reputation for being unpredictable. As the Crocodile God examined the room he really only wanted to know about the abilities of the ships and just how willing she was to reveal them to their enemies.

“As much as I wish to know more about these vessels I wish to know exactly how you plan to divide them.” He felt that only the System Lords should have access to this ship for now.

"Needless to discuss design when we would like to know the characteristics of this vessel, our ha'taks have been updated in recent years to keep up with the times, as a result I would like to understand what would be different and better for this ship that you are proposing to us!" Khnum added in turn, more interested in what the new generation ship contained. Design was not a problem, there was always time to modify it or readjust the same technology on the ha'taks of its fleet.

Khnum Flagship, pel'tak

At the same time, on board the flagship of the ruler of Khenem, Akhnenamun / Kelani observed the great orbital station from the throne room / pel'tak focusing his attention on his telepathic powers, in the hope of being able to steal fundamental information for the same Khnum, information that Alienna purposely omitted. Around him several Ram Guards and also some Horus Guards were busy completing their tasks. An unexpected signal came from the planet Khenem itself and only then did Kelani say nothing, simply with a gesture of the hand he made everyone present in the room before opening the communication. Faris's face appeared on the viewer.

"Lord Kelani ... investigations into sabotages are still ongoing but we have not recorded any more attempts at tampering since your departure, in any case we have traced and initiated detailed investigations into the jaffas, goa'ulds and human attendants operating on the flagship , I ask you to be able to enter the mind of each crew member so that I can discard any of my men! " the former First Prime concluded by awaiting the reply of the councilor goa'uld. But Kelani did not reply, simply nodded by closing the communication with Khenem.

When Allienna presented her gift to those in the room, Mefitis clenched her teeth for a moment. Already her service to Sekhmet was beginning to feel slightly more obsolete.

For his part, Mamers looked at the ship with interest.
An alien design, or partially so at least as the Asgard transporters and what he assumed were Tollan ion cannons showed. As for the shielding system, there and then he couldn't wrap his head around it but they may have been a product of Goa'uld ingenuity.

Now that he thought about it, the design was reminescent of something his old master had planned but the timing of the emergence of the Tau'ri and the Jaffa rebellion had kept everything on paper and half-conceived, until then at least. Without even giving a chance to the idea of a coincidence, Mamers figured that the youngling must've salvaged the design and worked on it for more than a decade, until that moment. Resourceful.
Instinctively, his hands reached for his beard, his fingers fiddling with it for a few moments. "Interesting..."

"I guess this ship has Ion guns, asgard beam derivation weapons and new generation shields ... I have to admit that the project could be interesting, especially as they have been implemented in goa'uld technology ... so far only a goa'uld has been able to implement the technology of the ionic ion cannon Tollan in a goa'uld ship, as far as i have come to know, although not with great results! " Khnum expressed himself by looking at the hologram in front of him. The idea of ​​an experimental ship could be interesting, its ha'tak although more powerful than those normally used previously, however they were nothing compared to the new implementation of these technologies in full war potential.

"We should modify or build new ships and we are not in a position to start a reconstruction of our personal fleet, already so rosy to date!" Achaman added in turn, looking at his ally.

 "Suffice to say Lord Sobek, the original design was not mine alone. That was a project begun by our departed brother Cronus... there is more to that I will admit, though we should save that for a later time ." Then turning to each one, she spoke with a degree of pride. "One ship has been made available to each of you here; without any caveats. They are yours..." Something was distracting her, Allie pressed a finger to her ear to listen in the small ear piece fitted there.

 With a face of almost joy she proclaimed. "An opportunity arises. Ba'al is moving troops between worlds. He has four Hat'aks traveling and they will pass within an hour from this sector. I suggest we show them we are not to betrayed ever again don't you all agree?"

"What an interesting opportunity there is on the horizon, four ha'taks traveling unaware that it could be their last trip, I'm only sorry that in this way, we will lose four ha'taks that could be given maybe to Sekhmet or Queen Mefitis ... ah sorry for the legitimate ruler Mamers! " Achaman replied grinningly looking at what he considered little more than an intruder in that meeting.
