Located at the top of the central most tower within the bay, the office of the Prime Minister of the Corellian Coalition was a large open space with windows overlooking the surrounding district and the sea. Set in front of the window, was a large wooden desk with a work station set up on it. A pair of chairs are located in front of the desk, while the rest of the room has several couches and tables littered about to serve as meeting spots and areas to conduct meetings with important ministers and the like. A small apartment area is located oss to the left side of the office where the Prime Minister can live and rest when government sessions require longer work hours.
Outside of the office space is a small reception area that has some seating allowance for visitors and a turbolift to allow people to travel to and from this level

Shortly before the Osarian and Rhommamool operations were scheduled to begin, Graemon Grogano arranged with the Prime Minister to have a key meeting with military personnel. Given the recent intelligence that his agents had gathered, the Baron felt it wise to let others know what was going just a few jumps away. It would give a sense of urgency, once revealed, of the Coalition's need to expand and strengthen themselves on a quicker schedule.

Being that the meeting had been called within his office, Marcus was already seated at the head of the long meeting table that had been set up and prepared for the occasion. Moderately comfortable setting was prepared, while small work stations were set up in front of each seat to display what ever information Baron Gorgano had to deliver to them all
Since arriving to Corellia after being saved by the Coalition forces over Froz, life had been rather busy for the newly promoted Rear-Admiral Erso. The Republic-class Star Destroyer and pair of Bothan Assault Cruisers had lasted the trip to Corellia, but their days of service were over for the time being. They were dry-docked and marked for repairs. In the meantime, a new series of new ships had finished being constructed that would made up the Coalition's 8th Fleet, to which Eain had been assigned the command of.
A task that the former Galactic Alliance Captain had taken to with great respect. Unlike some of his contemporaries, He had seen the Galactic Alliance fail the people of the galaxy and grow weak in it's final days. Infighting and both tactical political decisions had left the Alliance without the strength it could have had. Thus, when the First Order attacked Mon Calamari, thousands had died and the Galactic Alliance was smashed apart. A failed government that was not fit to protect the people nor be held on to.
As such, he proudly wore the uniform of the Corellian Coalition and displayed it's emblem as he made his way into the Office of Prime Minister Starmane. Taking a brief moment to offer a salute to those gathered, Eain then took his seat at the table and waited for the others to arrive

Admiral Thomas Carter, newly appointed Admiral of the Coalition First Fleet and commander of the Redemption made his way into the Prime minister's office shortly after Admiral Erso's arrival. With a quick salute to the Prime Minister and a short bow for Baron Gorgano Thomas nodded to Erso as he sat down at a place apparently reserved for him near the head of the table. He sat rigid in the surprisingly comfortable chair as he logged into the workstation and started going over more reports from the his fleet. Having been assigned to command the Coalition's new flagship he had been spending most of his time reviewing reports from the fleet at large as well as familiarizing himself with the progress of the last stages of Redemption's testing as well as the capabilities of the ship itself, as well as the two new Corellian Dreadnoughts that had been assigned to escort the battlecruiser. While he had commanded a variety of ships in his career with the CDF these three ships were entirely foreign to him, and in truth to the crews now on them. It was a mountain of headaches piled on top of each other, but he was enjoying the challenge before him, even if it did require him to attend endless briefings and cramming travel time and down time with equally endless report reviews and other paperwork.

Having seen Admiral Carter enter the office of the Prime Minister from down the hall, Lynne wasn't far behind. She entered the room in her new Coalition Blue uniform, caf in one hand, a data pad in the other, and a lot more data pads in a bag hanging from her shoulder. She had pulled reports on how the populations of the two worlds were doing and it wasn't good. A reason Lynne was in support of this expansion, even though annexing two planets seemed rather aggressive for the democratic Coalition, it would be better for the populations in the long run, or at least that's what her studies and projections told her. Taking a seat next to Graemon, Lynne gave a softly spoken "Hi" and nod to the rest of those gathered.

As people came in, and after Graemon gave his own 'hello' back to Lynne, he would key his datapad causing lights within the Prime Minister's office to dim before a holoprojector rose from the floor. It came to life, revealing the world of Coruscant to all who gathered. He turns to those who had come.
Gentlemen and ladies, a few days ago, I received word from Coalition agents, stationed on Coruscant.
Graemon keys his datapad once more, revealing images of First Order Stormtroopers, officers, vehicles, starfighters and more.
The Empire has made its move upon Coruscant. Though the military activity is high, my agents also saw commerce transports, bearing the Imperial emblem, arriving to the planet too. It seems that the Empire is fully annexing the planet and reviving it from its neglected state.
All knew how the Empire wrapped its territories around the planet, but before that, Coruscant had been left to its own fate. Once the Republic fell, it was abandoned by the Galactic Alliance and left within the Core. Its capture, by the Empire, was certainly a big statement to the galaxy. However, there was more to show. An even more important detail that should be known.
Graemon brings up several new images of a long dagger-shaped vessel that overshadowed the rest and hovered over the Galactic City.
My agents took several images of this, an Executor-class Star Dreadnought. The first of its kind to be seen in many years. We are unsure of anything involving the vessel, beyond what we already know from the past... however, with its presence, my agents are assuming that the Emperor is on the world.
Graemon turns to the Prime Minister, Marcus Starmane, as he continuees speaking.
Senator Camalon will be proposing Security Measure 437, Funding for the Froz Outpost, tomorrow. It is a high priority that this outpost be set up as soon as possible, and with the Empire's presence of Coruscant, we must use our time wisely to expand and strengthen our position. Osarian and Rhommamool are the beginning, after all.

Marcus sat silently as people filed in, giving salutes and bows of his head in response, waiting until everyone had arrived. At that point, Graemon began the presentation as the lights dimmed within the room. He steepled his fingers upon the table and gazed at the projection of Coruscant along with the ensuing images of First Order forces upon the planet. So, the Empire had finally made its move and taken the former galactic capital. A role it had not served in several years since the Republic had fallen. But one he suspected the First Order intended it to fill once more.
He remained still as the image changed then, showing the Executor-class Dreadnought. As always, the Empire seemed to be leaps and bounds ahead of what ever could be fielded by its opponents. A fact he suspected they were counting on using to prevent any resistance. But not one that would work against the Coalition. Marcus sat up a bit as Graemon addressed him, responding with a simple nod of his head at the mentions of Security Measure 437 and the impending Osarian and Rhommamool campaigns I have faith in Senator Camalon to get the bill through. With the strength the First Order is amassing, we would do well to keep a closer eye on them. In fact, in the interest of time, think it's worth taking this moment to address why we are still looking to liberate Osarian and Rhommamool, instead of turning our attention toward Coruscant... To put it simply, we need allies and resources. The Coalition may be strengthening now that we have managed to resettle many of the refugee's and welcomed a number of new worlds, but the might of our Imperial adversaries is vast. And unlike those that came before us, I don't want us running in half-cocked. The more support we gather to the south, the better position we will be in... Marcus touched his own console, bringing up a map of the galaxy, with the intended expansion path down toward Bothawui and across toward Endor. Several areas were coloured in different shades to denote known governments and suspected areas of control For the time being, it appears the Imperials have eased up on expanding their borders beyond what they control now. Which is why we have to act swiftly to secure what we can. I have already secured the senate's agreement to move ahead with this plan. It's now a matter of moving ahead and taking one more step closer toward being able to fight back against and defeating the First Order... Any questions so far?

Rear-Admiral Dilan paused outside the door to calm her nerves. She hated that she was late, as unavoidable as it had been. She was honestly just glad that no one had been hurt in the speeder accident. It was a moment before she had collected herself, and smoothed down her slick black fur. She stepped into the room and took her seat quietly, but was keen to notice the display showing the galactic geo-political scene. She had been studying the shifting scene the last few weeks in particular. This one showed more detail than hers had, and her keen grey eyes were quick to note the differences, and what it might mean in the years to come.

Dilan had a few queries about the how and the who of this operation, but wasn't eager to jump in having been late to the meeting. She was most keen to know how the CC planned to defend against an all out offensive from the FO, something that might be an all to real fear if it was expanding again. Her primary concern was how the coalition would respond to the threat of the First Order, would they rally or scatter? The politicians liked to bicker, but the navies seemed to be working well together so she had hope that things would work out. Though, if she were honest, her concern was mostly selfish because she knew that the Corellian worlds couldn't hold back the FO alone. She knew the threat before them could easily crush them, it brought it's full militant attention crashing down upon this coalition.
