Not a whole lot to add here... I liked the background bit of the Advisor pouring himself a glass of Romulan ale while he chats. He's definitely not the type to drink from the bottle!
Comments from the Tagboard:

: He's pouring Romulan Ale, which is naturally blue.
03/27/23 12:31 PM
: I bet the Romulans in orbit are tired of waiting, given the KA-BOOM! sfx in the last panel! Guess we have to wait a whole week to find out!

: So, is the Supreme Advisor a fan of Blue curaçao or just any "blue wine", with color added to red and white wines? :D
Supreme Advisor: Stepping in? Yes, good.
Before this incompetent ship commander hurts your cause even more with his blatant ingratitude for the exemplary aid we provide to the poor, helpless Spoogians.
Commander Dale Zurkett: Aid? You've turned these people into slaves, you pompous, self-righteous, tyrannical--
Grayson Talbot Let me just pop in here. I'm Grayson Talbot.
Talbot: Pleased to meet you, sir.
Supreme Advisor: Ah, yes... the "master diplomat?" I do hope you have better skills than this oaf.
Dale (aside): Oaf!?
Talbot: I'll do my best, sir. We all want is what is best for the Spoogians, don't we?
But you have us at an impasse. And the Commander here is an excellent example of your two options:
Work out a great deal with me... or fight it out with phasers.
Supreme Advisor: You don't mince words, I see.
Talbot: That wouldn't be fair to either of us.
Supreme Advisor: Then perhaps WE can come to an understanding. Come, let us speak.
Dale: Good grief, what the hell was that? Why did Talbot wait so long? I stepped in everything.
Lieutenant Commander Natashia Starrat: Not everything. You did refrain from punching anyone.
Dale: Very funny.
Yeoman Bridget Janson: Oh, did Grayson not warn you? Romulans treat diplomacy like a war... identify and destroy the enemy commander.
So his plan was to let them target YOU and feel victorious. That makes them much more pliable in the actual talks
Dale: What, so he just sent me out as a sacrificial lamb?
Natashia: Some warning would have been helpful.
Bridget: Well, I'm sure he didn't meant to do it that way.
He probably just needed an authentic reaction from you.
Dale: Why are you defending him like that?
Wait... do you like this guy or something?
