Negotiators help to make deals – between planets, or between nations on planets – from trade agreements to peace treaties.  Negotiators’ uniforms have red bands round the chest and cuffs.

As part of our training, we had to go on a mission with a Negotiator, to watch him at work.  We were sent with a Negotiator called Augustus to a planet called Kyni 9, where the leader wanted to buy sixteen thousand fenceposts.  See Report 4.
