Publisher's Summary

The Conclave is a confederation of 400 alien races - many of whom would like to see the Colonial Union - and the humans inside of it - blasted to extinction. To avoid a conflict that neither side can afford, Conclave leader General Tarsem Gau appoints Hafte Sorvalh to resolve an emerging diplomatic crisis with the humans, before the only acceptable solution is war.
"The Back Channel" is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

The Conclave Side in this Episode

In this episode you listen to the Conclave and what decision they are going to take... I'm not liking the length of each episode , i believe it would have been better if they are a bit longer.
But here you get to know some technologies and the human division getting bigger and bigger.

Lets see what the next episodes will bring.

Enter The Conclave! _______________________ 😱

5 is great.
4 is good.
3 is OK.
The back story of the Conclave is more complex than easily appreciated here. I think that will make appreciation for the beauty of this John Scalzi vinyette more difficult -- but still very worth the listen. __________________ 😱
