Though not for long, if the Groaci have their way. Groaci also finds Popu-Ri just the place to build a galactic warfleet. Still, for the Corps Diplomatiques Terrestrienne to respond would threaten the delicate balance of human/Groaci forces on the cocktail circuit.

But he made one little mistake: he sent Retief.
