- "Chancellor Saresh also refused to discuss surrender, but the Republic Senate managed to overrule her. A cadre of Senators negotiated their own cease-fire terms. All of those Senators have since been disgraced or dismissed. I'm sure you can imagine the likely culprit."
- ―Lana Beniko
A treaty was negotiated between the Galactic Republic and the Eternal Empire by a group of Senators during the Eternal Empire's conquest of the galaxy. The treaty ended the Eternal Empire's assault upon the Republic, but forced the Republic to begin paying a heavy tribute of raw materials and resources, as well as an arms limitation statute that the Republic broke in secret. The Senators who negotiated the cease-fire did so when the Galactic Senate overruled Supreme Chancellor Leontyne Saresh, though Saresh arranged for the disgrace or dismissal of the Senators who were involved in the aftermath.
The treaty would become void when the Eternal Alliance absorbed the Eternal Empire and freed both the Republic and Empire from these terms.
