The declaration of war upon the Republic by the XHuman Supremacy has caused an uproar in the Senate. Accusations fly and vows are made. A few voices speak for peace, arguing that the Republic is having a difficult enough time fighting off pirates, and can not handle a war at this time. They suggest that the XHumans be appeased and trade sanctions lifted.
