    Atlas Prime was an incredibly large city-ship. Filled with beings of all species, sizes, and colors. The city was, for the most part, a diverse trading hub with difference districts for the various species. All of whom came together to form the city-state known as Atlas. Each group working together in perfect harmony. Leaving the pressure of the Elysium government out of sight and out of mind.

    At least until the Lantern Corps arrived asking if they could use a portion of Atlas Prime that was left unoccupied. At first, nobody really minded, not until the dead Corpsmen, Hal Jordan arrived. With him came foreigner listening to his call to arms. All prepared to join a rebellion, quite literally being based out of their backyard.

    Hal paid the people of Atlas little mind really. Something within him felt drawn to it, why he couldn't figure out. None of that mattered on the 13th however. No today was the day Hal spoke with his faction and officially set forth a plan that would hopefully get rid of the Tyrant. For the most part, the man had been playing on his guitar while he sat at one of the large conference rooms given to him, watching as Rebels and Lanterns came and went.

    Soon Hal would have to put down his guitar and start briefing people on what was going on. Thankfully he had Moh to help out with that for the most part. But generally, this first conversation was to just let those who wanted their voices to be heard or their ideas voiced to do it.

    This was going to be the start of what would be a brutal fight. Hal knew it. He just wanted everyone else to know before they willingly put their lives in his hands.

    He had to hide his worries as people began to take their seats. If he wanted people to follow him, they'd have to believe that this cocky Lantern wasn't going to be a ball of worries and that he was made to command armies. Even if it wasn't completely true. Hal had to make them think it was.

    And so he continued to play his guitar until he looked up at the masses, grinning towards them all before he rose from his seat. 'Welcome to Atlas. I hope anyone who made the long trip here at the very least took the scenic route to this portion of the ship.' He continued to stand tall before them all as he watched more people enter. All wanting to hear what Hal and the Rebels would say, and what they'd planned for Elysium.

    So he wasn't dead, huh? Samus shouldn't have been surprised. For all his tough talk, Hal was durable and stubborn. A simple "pirate attack" wouldn't be the end of him. She had no attachment to Elysium's new government head and his tighter policies, so she decided to take up the Green Lantern's call to gather on Atlas Prime. It wouldn't hurt to see what he had to say, at least. She kept a little more towards the back, in full armor, which caused a few people to murmur worries over her general reputation.

    Maybe if this plan worked, she could actually walk around Elysium again without sticking to the lawless parts.

    Elysium was giving Lance a lot of bad vibes as of late. The very publically made death of Hal Jordan was bad enough, but then their new Boss started making all the rules stricter. It reminded him way too much of how "strong" the Galra Empire was. Definitely not a good sign. As much as he loved a fight, he wasn't gonna sit around and be used as this guy's personal soldier.

    Lance took the Blue Lion out to Atlas Prime, wanting to see if there was any way he could help make this right. Maybe he could rope the other Voltron Paladins into helping the Green Lanterns stop this mess before people started getting conquered. He really didn't want to be part of another long, painful rebellion, but Lance knew some things were worth rebelling over. He was a little closer to the front of the crowd, wearing his blue and white armor and his bayard on his belt.

    Though a Starfleet captain, or at least this worlds version thereof, and generally good at following orders, something just didn't sit right about the knew so called Supreme Secretary. Though Janeway was far from happy to separated from her crew on Voyager, she didn't like what Elysium was becoming under the new regime. She'd heard the broadcast, of course, but had met many people like this Supreme Secretary. They got what they wanted through coercion, persecution and other worse means. At the same time though, was she really going to join an outright rebellion? How would that make her any better than the marquis? Still, perhaps it was her duty to at least see what was going on, get a lay of the land, so to speak. Attending this little conference surely didn't mean committing, but at least she would know what was going on in the minds of the people. Including a man who was supposed to be dead.

    Yet to figure out just who had sent her the co-ordinates that had brought her here, the last thing she needed was everyone thinking she had come here as a Starfleet spy. She was here outside her capacity as Starfleet, which was why she had come by shuttlecraft and omitted her uniform, instead choosing something a little more casual. It seemed one or two people hadn't gotten that memo though, as he noted the person at the back of the room in some kind of full armour! There certainly where many kinds of people here in the Cosmic Wilderness, something that wasn't that different to what she was used to, she supposed.

    "Well, I'll say this for you, Hal, you can draw a fair crowd."
    Leaning against the wall of the conference room just behind where the man of the hour sat and strummed a guitar (!), Moh thought over the choices of the last 48 hours that had brought him here. It was difficult, this revolutionary business, and it didn't get easier just because you had a programme and a coherent ideology. The simple fact of it all was that Inilossum had stolen a march on everyone who would have opposed him, and now the scramble was on to try and make up for lost time.

    Still, he had to admit, things were looking better than he'd dared to hope. Three members of Moh's own gang were here, eyeing up the other attendees and holding their knock-off rifles with the air of people who might know how to use a monkey wrench but knew fuck all about gun safety. Still, they were good lads and lasses, and Moh was glad he'd been able to bring them. He definitely felt less alone, that was for sure.

    Ah, Hal was talking now. It was showtime. Pushing himself off the wall, Moh wandered forward and listened to the main man's introduction. Moh made sure to stand at least a little way away from Hal as he spoke, fighting an odd sense of self-consciousness, before clearing his own throat as the crowd's chattering came to an end.

    Hal gave the first speech, that was the rule, then he'd throw open the floor to discussion. That was when Moh would speak up. Swallowing to clear his throat a little, Moh hoped that what he had to say would fall on at least one or two friendly ears.

    Ceres might not-a had t' face the worst of the new 'regime' just yet, but Yondu wasn't gonna sit around and wait for their foot soldiers t' show up. He'd seen enough-a one nasty empire government to not notice all the red flags, and he sure as hell wasn't gonna ignore the possy-bility of a second tryin' to sneak up on him.

    That was what brought him out to what he took as the 'new' Atlas Prime, a surefire way t' meet a bunch of good folks and put some kind-a plan together...but only after he finished the long walk t' their meetin' place.

    "Pretty good work for someone who's s'posed t' be dead," he agreed, comin' in at just the right time.


    "Still...can't wait t' hear what'chu got in mind, Jordan!"

    Hal had gotten himself a crowd. A few he knew and others he was sure he'd get to know along the way. All of this was good. Prepared to speak the Lantern gazed upon the masses, eager for what would soon unfold before him. 'Alright let's get this rolling!' Hal said sort of just letting it be known that he was beginning.

    'As many of you know. Elysium is now firmly under the control of the tyrant Inilossum. And unlike what he reported, I am not dead. In fact, I'm alive and rather irritated by it all.' Irritated wasn't a harsh enough word. 'Tyranny and oppression are on our horizon. Inilossum will not ensure Elysium is safe. Nor will justice be fair.' Just like how he dealt with Hal. All of it showed the lengths he was willing to go to deal with someone he thought was a threat. And Hal was now proving just how threatening he could be.

    'He will come for those who don't agree with him, those he sees as a threat and those he just plain doesn't like.' And the people around this room just happened to be quite unlikable at times. 'Now I know that the what I'll soon be asking of you all will be hard. Even deadly to some. But unfortunately, he's forced our hands and a tyrant must fall.' Whether or not they helped was going to be up to them. Hal had already set his mind on war.

    And soon he'd fly out to deal the first official blow. 'To get to the point. I will be fighting against Inilossum and anyone who sides with him. Whether or not fight for the rights of all Elysians, Cereans, and all the god damn beings in space is up to you. Those who do will be remembered in the years to come.'

    With that Hal said his part. 'Now the floor is open to whoever wants to let their thoughts and opinions be heard.' After letting that be known. Hal slowly returned back to his seat. Hoping they'd speak out and agree with him.
