IV.II The Executive Committee's (or Fleet
Admiral's) Most Eminent Federation Senate (hereinafter:
The Federation Senate
advises the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) on a
range of topics, such as legislation, administration and
justice. Its membership consists of any number of
Officers, such as veterans or retired Officers but not
members of the Council of Admirals. The appointment of
members of the Federation Senate is solely the discretion of
the Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral).
Members of the Federation Senate are entitled to read-only
access of the 'Council Chambers', and are expected to
raise any topics of concern with the Executive Committee
(or Fleet Admiral) privately, rather than with the
Council of Admirals. These concerns will be handled in
confidence, as the Council of Admirals is not entitled
to reciprocal access to any forum of the Federation Senate.
The Executive Committee (or Fleet Admiral) may
delegate any powers granted to them in this Constitution
to the Federation Senate as a whole. Powers require a
defined level support in the Federation Senate who may then
act on behalf of the Executive Committee (or Fleet
Admiral) when and if instructed.
