SUBJ: Xedi Interrogation Request
As seen in my report, the Laehval recently assisted Starfleet forces in fending off an ambush from a species known as the Xedi. Up to this point, the Republic seems to have had little to no contact with this specific species and it took some small amount of research to even bring myself up to date enough on them to author this communication.
Normally, the Republic prefers to interrogate those we capture or aid in capturing ourselves; we have ways with interrogations that have proven to be quite effective. However, given our lack of involvement with the Xedi up to this point, I would be willing to waive any claim I might have towards interrogation for what should be a rather insignificant request. I would simply like to have access to the results of the interrogations conducted by your Officers. I believe it would be beneficial for the Republic to have pertinent information pertaining to the Xedi should Starfleet call on us again for future conflicts. Or, perhaps, our own analysis of the reports, when combined with other information on the Xedi, may provide a new or different insight. Either way, I see this as beneficial to both of us.
I spoke with Captain Bishop already - who has been copied on this communication - and he deferred the decision to you as Starbase Commander. I will attach his original response to my inquiry along with my report for the mission.
As always, I hope to work collaboratively with you.
