“Really?” the SG said. “Our Ambassador went to the Galactic Council only a year ago, and now she's Galactic President! And the way we chose her – between her place of birth, political affiliation, she had to be acceptable to every member nation. I don't think anyone asked her what she did for a living before...”

“I did,” the aide said. “I'm amazed she took so long. She's a divorce lawyer.”
