Silver was sitting in Briefing Room 1, wondering what he was doing there. A pony had told him that all scouts and security were to report there, and never one to disobey orders, he immediately followed his instructions.

He turned to the pony sitting closest to him, an Earth Pony mare with a bright red coat and an equally bright yellow mane. "Uhm, excuse me, but do you know what the purpose of this meeting is?"
