Colonial One. Apollo tells the Prez that they haven't been able to prove that Valance was working for Zarek. He urges her to send the Sagittaron delegation back to their ships as a safety measure. The Prez says, "Can't do that. It violates their civil rights -- plays right into Zarek's hands." Apollo argues that their could be another assassin on Cloud 9 who'll kill the Prez if Zarek becomes Vice-President. The Prez insists, "Zarek's not going to win, because I'm not going to let him." She tells Apollo to tap Zarek's phone and bug his room: "If you find anything that remotely connects Zarek to Valance, shut him down." Heh. You'll notice that the Prez isn't so much concerned with civil rights as she is with maintaining the appearance of civil rights. This isn't a world overpopulated with idealists, I'll say that for it.
Back in the auditorium, Gray is talking about domestic policies. Billy whispers to the Prez, "Latest vote count is seven for Gray, five for Zarek." The Prez frets that Zarek only had four votes an hour earlier. Billy says that Picon's delegate changed his vote. Or her vote. Whatever. As Gray explains that people with college degrees can apply to become teachers, Apollo strolls around to pay Zarek a visit. Apollo leans over and whispers, "Hi, how're you doing? Remember me? We got Valance and you're next." Exit Apollo. He's not so great with subtlety, is he? I was waiting for Zarek to pull out a microphone and scream that the Prez is using the military to intimidate people.
