Hostages

Prologue

Six men sat around a large table.

"Yes, word has come through. Plans are now definite for the gathering," said the second voice. "The three will be there."

There was silence around the table. "There must be no killing. I will not sanction any killing," added a third more cultured voice.

The first voice spoke again. "Our demands must be firm. Absolutely no negotiations."

"Again…circumstances may change. Let us remain flexible," responded the hoarse voice. "The Federation Council is a monstrous bureaucracy.

All six men were silent.
