|And what is it that you wish for them to do in this Universe? They already create technology, ships, weapons everything, for the use of the Yamataian Empire and Nepleslian Empire. Is it that you wish them to join in in this exploration scheme?
Hoshi no Iori's representative said 'focus', to 'focus' on the present universe. But Emrys Industries and NovaCorp, the two industries that are most affected by this bill, are already those corporations that focus greatly on this universe, that do the most in terms of development, certainly with Emrys Industries and its philanthropic projects in Nepleslia. It is difficult to see how they should be more 'focused', but if your eminences have suggestions perhaps they should be suggested too these companies.
Moving to another universe is much like, in more primitive times, setting up a branch in another country. It is simply a place with more business opportunities, and, to expand their interests. In the sake of a free market I see no reason to bind them.
Let us not forget that in the current standing of things a Corporation can not, with its own ships and its own crew go on an exploration of far off planets, to explore. However allowing for an establishment in another universe serves much the same purpose, however it is not a territorial exploration, but an exploration of people, culture, and that which they might have and which we do not.
Kohana voted no saying that if these corporations bit off more too much they could choke, but are we a nanny state which prevents our corporations from taking a few steps on their own feet in a new world? Yes they might 'choke', and be forced to shut down the branch, burnt from the experience, but should it not be their choice? Their option?
We also think that possibly for this issue representatives of the Various Major Corporations should be able to have their say before the Senate.
